What Has Julia Roberts Had Done? Lip, Eye, Nose or Face Surgery Perhaps?
Throughout a long career in movies, Julia Roberts’ plastic surgery gossip has ranged far and wide.
Born October 28, 1967, Roberts is a viable acting sensation. She has been one of the more bankable actresses in Hollywood and though she has three children and she’s in her mid 40s now, she looks much younger than her years and her significant body of work might suggest.
She is known for her starring appearances in movies such as Notting Hill (1999) with Hugh Grant, as would-be lawyer Erin Brockovich (2000), Closer with Jude Law (2004) and, of course, Pretty Woman with Richard Gere in 1990.
Since Hollywood is rife with gossip about cosmetic surgeries and has been ever since the days of the silver screen when Marilyn Monroe herself got plastic surgery done to enhance her classic look, accusations of plastic surgery are only too common place. Debate and gossip even surrounds popular Hollywood icons such as Brad Pitt and George Clooney.
Older actresses always attract this sort of attention which is why there are similar questions asked about Jennifer Coolidge, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lopez or Meryl Streep but not younger stars like Katy Perry.
The Cosmetic Surgery Speculations
There has been considerable speculation as to what plastic surgery Julia Roberts may have had, as well as where and when.
Some people point out that her nose looks different, insinuating that she’s had a rhinoplasty, more commonly known as a ‘nose job’.
Others say that she keeps her body dramatically well, suggesting that she might have gotten liposuction.
And still other people compare her high school year book photo to some of her later shots, claiming that nature couldn’t have blessed her with perfectly swollen lips the way she has.
Now, none of this is fact and it certainly shouldn’t be taken as gospel truth.
There are a lot of things that can seemingly change the way a person looks from one photograph to another.
If you’re wearing different clothes, if you’ve used different cosmetic techniques, and even the angle of the picture and the lighting in the photograph can all create looks that could, and have, been mistaken for the results of plastic surgery.
Of course in the case of some pictures, time that’s passed can result in changes to an actress’ body or face naturally. So it’s always important that you rule out any potential, natural causes before you start pointing fingers at cosmetic surgeons.
Julia Roberts’ Denials…
When asked in a magazine interview by Elle whether she’d had celebrity plastic surgery, Roberts denied that she had.
Instead the actress stated that she wanted to see what she would look like as an older woman and she decried the state of a nation when everyone was so determined to hold onto their youth when they didn’t even know what they would look like when they got older.
Additionally Julia Roberts went on to say, “I want my kids to know when I’m pissed, when I’m happy and when I’m confounded“, in reference to how plastic surgery can alter your face and the way you convey emotion. Other stars, such as Ashley Judd, clearly weren’t taking heed of her words.
As this video shows, she’s clearly not interested in any type of cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure.
Despite Julia Roberts protesting that she hasn’t had any cosmetic work done, there are still naysayers. Some people have speculated that Roberts has procedures done whenever the actress takes time off from work to be a mother.
Her more youthful and fresh-faced appearance doesn’t seem to jive with taking care of three kids, some say.
However, it’s all just words in the wind as far as some people have said. The actress sticks by her story that her good looks and graceful aging are a result of good genes, lots of work and personal diet, rather than any plastic surgery Julia Roberts has undergone.
