Not ashamed of a few personal touch-ups, Susan Sarandon recently confessed to having cosmetic surgery done on her face, and says she may do more in the future.
"I've had some lipo under my chin and under my eyes,” the 65-year-old actress tells People magazine.
Sarandon, who currently stars in the Duplass Brothers’ film, “Jeff, Who Lives at Home,” also suggests she could embark on additional work down the road, if she can keep her natural look in the process.
"I have these two huge frown lines here (on my forehead),” Sarandon explains. “But if you can't move your face or you're unrecognizable, I don't see how that's a productive enhancement. You don't want to look like a female impersonation of yourself."
Sarandon’s statements are bold in lieu of the typically silent, aging Hollywood, where even younger stars have been afraid to admit they’ve gone under the knife. She also, for the first time, acknowledges rumors about her two-year relationship with 34-year-old Jonathan Brinklin, commenting, "Dating is such a stupid word. You can say...We are collaborating in a lot of different areas."
Since splitting with longtime partner Tim Robbins in 2009 after 23 years together, the actress and Oscar winner for 1995’s “Dead Man Walking” has been mum on the subject of romance until now. She was also questioned about her businessman beau when she appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” on March 14 to discuss her film, and new role modeling for Neiman Marcus.
“We hear that you…have another gentleman in you life?” Williams asked the star, who wouldn’t comment specifically, but laughed at the talk show host’s joke she was “gettin’ some.”
Commented Sarandon, “Well, I’m very relaxed.”
Fans are appreciating the actress’ candid demeanor, and speaking out in her praise.
“I respect her for admitting it,” comments a Yahoo! reader going by hah in regards to the actress’ plastic surgery. “It was done well so she didn't have to publicly address it. If everyone who had something done would say it, it would go a long way informing the public about what is realistic and what is not. I am so tired of the 'I eat very healthy and do yoga' lie.”
