20 April 2011Jill Zarin, one of the stars of hit American television show Real Housewives of NYC, has spoken out against recent rumours that she has undergone cosmetic surgery in a bid to look younger. The 47-year-old spoke to OK! Magazine after speculation began over her dramatically younger, wrinkle-free appearance. Despite looking as though she may have had facelift and nose reshaping surgery, Zarin put rumours to bed by speaking out honestly and openly about her new look. In an interview published in latest issue of the magazine, Zarin said: “I am very surprised by the controversy that my new look created! “Truthfully I had absolutely no plastic surgery to my face, no cutting, no nose job. I have done Botox and filler injections and have a new makeup artist, Jim Crawford. He gave me a new look and I feel beautiful and confident”, she added. She also revealed that the decision to revamp her look was driven by her own desire to be more confident, and not by pressure from fans, directors and co-stars. The star also encouraged women to do whatever they needed to do to feel better about the ageing process. “If there is something you want to do to feel better about yourself, whether it be plastic surgery, injections, makeup, a new dress, I encourage you to do whatever it is that will make you happy”, she said.
