While many models and actresses maintain their enviable looks with the help of a few nip and tuck procedures, some are completely against the idea of going under the knife. Former supermodel Jerry Hall has publicly criticized plastic surgery and says that women who do undergo different procedures are “monsters”.
In a documentary that aired in the United States earlier this month, Hall says, “I think it is bad that we have as role models people who are scary to small children…I’m definitely not going to have plastic surgery. I think it’s a sickness. I see people who have had work done and I don’t even recognize them. They’re like monsters, scary!”
The documentary features other household names in the industry, including Christie Brinkley and Christy Turlington.
The supermodels talk about the dangers of the dark side of the world of glamour and fashion – eating disorders, plastic surgery addictions, and diet pills and other drugs. Hall goes even further to state, “If a man asks you to have plastic surgery, he doesn’t want you, he wants a trophy.” Hall denounces women who choose to get surgery just to enhance their looks, and can’t believe how far some women go to achieve their “ideal” look. Jerry Hall is now 56 years old and her overall appearance hasn’t changed much since her supermodel days. She’s blessed with good genes and an attractive figure – something she doesn’t take for granted.
