Actress Betty White finally admits to cosmetic surgery

10 June 2011

dv1768011Ageing actress Betty White has finally admitted to having cosmetic surgery after years of claiming she had grown old gracefully. The 80-year-old, who has won seven Emmy Awards over her long career, made the revelation in her book entitled ‘If You Ask Me’. Last year White was quoted as saying that she’s glad she hasn’t gone under the knife and that she wished her old friends would follow in her footsteps and grow old gracefully. In her book, White writes: “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature! But in 1976 I had my eyelids done. I scolded myself forever, but now I’m glad I did it.” Before and after pictures of White at that time show that the surgery rid her of eye bags and tightened the skin around both eyes. White joins a long list of celebrities who have denied having cosmetic surgery for years, but who eventually admit that they have had a little help to delay the effects of ageing.
