In the artificial world of Hollywood, plastic surgery is incredibly common and is seen as a necessary evil to keep one’s career going. Despite the fact that most entertainers have had at least one procedure done, it’s rare to find anyone in Hollywood that is brave enough to admit it.
Country music legend Dolly Parton, however, isn’t afraid to admit that she has indeed had numerous surgeries done. This woman just can’t help but be an open book to her fans, and we love her for it!
“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 continued. “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.”
Parton’s surgeries have certainly paid off, keeping her youthful far longer than most of her contemporaries. The iconic singer is preparing to embark on her first major tour in 25 years at the age of 70 this year.
“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.”
Parton also admitted that she takes great pleasure in being recognized for her unique and iconic image.
“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.”
