Jennifer Aniston popped by Oprah this week to deny a slew of rumors, namely that she recently got breast implants and/or split from boyfriend Vince Vaughn. (By the way, denying the breakup was the first time she actually confirmed the relationship even existed. But who's counting?)
As for the breast implants, Jen told Oprah, "No boob job! You know what it's called? It's called 10 pounds...maybe a couple cheese plates too many."
But the real Jennifer Aniston plastic surgery story wasn't on Oprah - it's on the cover of Star magazine: "before" and "after" photos of Jen with the words "Secret Surgeries."
What exactly did Jen do to make the transformation from her "Ferris Bueller (Television Version)" days to "Friends"? Was the dramatic change really just losing some extra pounds and getting her eyebrows reshaped? Or, as many prominent plastic surgeons have speculated, was it really the result of having the bridge of her nose thinned, the tip of her nose restructured and a chin implant added?
From cosmetic improvements to anti-aging techniques, it's rare to find celebrities who will own up to plastic surgery. Stars want us to believe they stay beautiful through sheer determination and commitment to a diet, workout routine or beauty regimen. The trouble is, that sends a message to other women that they can do the same thing, which just isn't true.
I don't blame Jen for wanting to keep her nose to herself. But wouldn't it be nice if she used her renowned honesty and humility to share her real beauty secrets with us?
