Kim Basinger’s recent birthday inspired a sweet Tweet from her look-alike daughter. While Kim likely takes good care of herself, it seems unlikely that plastic surgery hasn’t played a role in keeping her young.
59-year old Kim Basinger looks a lot like her 17-year old daughter, but according to the girl, it isn’t because of platic surgery.
In a birthday Tweet, Kim’s daughter wrote, “You are the most naturally beautiful woman there ever was and will be. Your skin care, workouts and advice on eating healthy inspire me to do the same. Ladies, if you want to avoid Botox and any other skin treatments, listen to my mom! She hasn’t had one treatment done because she’s stay (sic) completely out of the sun all these years!”
However, Kim’s daughter could be mistaken because over the years Makemeheal.com has spotted signs of plastic surgery in Kim’s appearance, including fillers, like Juvederm (See Make Me Heal’s story on Kim Basinger’s plastic surgery).
On his blog, OcBody plastic surgeon Dr. John Di Saia writes, “Hmmmmm. That is very touching really even if it is not factually correct. I can see a mom’s desire to protect her kids from overindulging in adult things like cosmetic surgery, but Kim Basinger is no stranger to plastic surgery. We don’t know what mom is telling her daughter here.”
“In fact not too long ago we quoted another media interaction with Ms Basinger in which she expressed much less than denial.”
“Kim Basinger was quite beautiful when she started out but plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments over the years have not done her any harm that I can see. Avoiding the sun is always a good idea, but denying the help that her treatments have provided over the years is just ridiculous.”
“There is another (less cynical) way to look at this however: Ms Basinger’s daughter is simply mistaken. She would like to believe her mother is an “all natural” beauty, but in reality few if any in Hollywood are.”
Kim definitely looks great, for any age, but it does seem that plastic surgery has intervened in her aging process.
