Leslie Caron may not be the marquee star she once was, dancing with Gene Kelly in An American in Paris or being a courtesan-in-training in Gigi, but thank heaven for plastic surgery, it has helped the French/American actress stay young.
78-year old Leslie Caron is a screen legend thanks to her earliest roles. Still active, Leslie recently released a memoir, Thank Heaven, detailing her career and impressions of Hollywood.
During a recent interview with legendary gossip columnist Liz Smith, Leslie casually dropped her secret to staying so darn cute including having “a facelift or two.” While it’s great to see a member of Old Hollywood admitting to having had work, it is even better to see it be successful and not over done.
In addition to a couple of facelift, Leslie could also use some injectables, like Botox to take care of some of the creases around her eyes and maybe some fat grafting or filler in the region between her brows, just above the nose.
Board certified Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr David Shafer says, “Leslie Caron does have a slight facelift look. She still has prominent crow’s feet which could be improved with Botox and glabellar depression which could be improved with fat grafting for Juvederm injections. Her smile looks a bit asymmetric, but I don’t know if this is from surgery or pre-existing.”
Still acting, the former ballerina is set to appear in Steven Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music” at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris beginning next month. Leslie is a film icon and a great example of plastic surgery done well.
