The 37-year old Latifah got a breast reduction in 2003, which downsized her F size breasts to a double D cup size, as a way to reduce shoulder and back pain from carrying such a heavy “load”.
Speaking about her breast reduction to People, Latifah explains how she did not want to have the breast reduction but was left with no choice after trying to lose weight as a way to lighten her weight on top.
“I didn’t want to get it. But I had lost 25 pounds and my breasts didnt go anywhere! I was still carrying that load,” she says.
Now, a few years later she admits to missing her old curves and jokes how her surgeon was over aggressive in her breast reduction.
“I didn’t quite want them to be this small,” says Queen Latifah.
“I was pretty big. Now I’m like a DD. I wanted to be a triple. They took one D too many! So that was hard to deal with. … I missed my old look.”
When asked about whether anymore plastic surgery might be in store for her, Queen Latifah completely rules it out.
“There are people who love (plastic surgery) and want to cut and chop anything. I’m like, ‘Y’all are crazy!’,” says Latifah.
Queen Latifah is a wonderful role model for women, as the actress has been outspoken about loving one’s body at any size. Latifah defies the size zero Hollyweird trend and shows to women that one can be attractive, confident and successful at voluptuous proportions.
