Plastic surgery is extremely common in the world of Hollywood, yet it’s rare to find a celebrity brave enough to admit that they’ve had procedures done. Country music legend Dolly Parton, however, can’t be anything but herself and recently openly admitted that she has had lots of plastic surgery done over the years.
“There ain’t much real about me but my heart,” said Parton, according to Fox News. “I just feel sorry when I see people that don’t know how to even be who they are or they are trying to be something they’re not. I don’t think you should ever be ashamed no matter who or what you are, you should be proud of who you are.”
“I’m the biggest phony-looking person in the world and I know that, but this is how I feel comfortable,” she explained. “I think everybody should look and be whatever makes them comfortable so their inner self — their God Light — can shine. To me, I know I look totally phony, but I’m really not.”
Nobody can deny that Parton’s surgeries have certainly paid off. At age 70, she is hitting the road for her first major tour in 25 years.
“I’m having such a good time and the fans seem to be enjoying me,” Parton continued. “So I’m going to ride that wave until I get washed ashore.”
After years in the business, Parton is now embracing her iconic image more than ever.
“I’d feel like a fool if I went [incognito] somewhere and I looked awful and they recognized me anyhow,” she said. “I’d rather they just say, ‘Oh, I saw Dolly Parton today,’ than just say, ‘Lord, did you see Dolly Parton? She looked like hell.’ That would be the worse thing for someone like me – a big painted-up plastic doll.”
