Former supermodel Jerry Hall has criticized women who have plastic surgery, branding them monsters. The tall Texan, who was married to Mick Jagger for nine years, spoke out on an American TV documentary.
Ms Hall, 56, said: “I think it is bad that we have as role models people who are scary to small children. I’m definitely not going to have plastic surgery. I think it s a sickness. I see people who have had work done and I don t even recognize them. They re like monsters, scary!”
There are of course plenty of examples online of people who have taken plastic surgery too far, but is it a “sickness?” To those who go overboard it might very well be, but what about the millions who have had successful experiences: Are they monsters? If that is the case, many people you know and many you don’t know would be included.
Either Ms Hall has been taken out of context or has extreme opinions of plastic surgery. She isn’t the first in either category and won’t be the last. It would be nice to be a fly on the wall when she said this to try to figure what she is really thinking.
