Sarandon Defends Plastic Surgery

Subscribe to Susan Sarandon alerts

THELMA AND LOUISE star Susan Sarandon has defended an actress's right to undergo plastic surgery, because of the pressure to look good on the big screen.

The 58-year-old, who has never had any cosmetic enhancements, understands why her contemporaries succumb to the surgeon's knife, and blames the often unkind scrutiny of a camera lens for their decision.

Sarandon says, "Just because I haven't had any plastic surgery, I'm not going to knock it.

"I think that women have the right to their bodies to make them feel good about themselves. It's hard to be in this business and to be on a screen that's that big, that has every little line that you have up there."

But, Sarandon still believes some women's insecurity gets the better of them when they submit themselves to endless surgery.

She says, "You take a perfectly interesting woman and she ends up looking like a female impersonator with gigantic breasts.

"It's just so extreme. That doesn't worry me, because it's just like everyone is kind of looking the same."
