Denise Richards Admits to Three Breast Surgeries
42-year-old Denise Richards was on the Howard Stern show recently and admitted that she had three cosmetic surgeries on her breasts during her young adult years.
“They’re natural on the outside. I’ve never talked about it but I’ll talk about it with you because I can’t lie to you.”
The first was done when she was 19-year-old while she was attending college.
“I was 19, and my roommate had the best boobs ever, and she had just had hers done,” Richards told Stern. “I was flat as a board, and I thought ‘Whoa, you can just buy them’ and stupidly had them done!”
She confessed that her roommate looked great following breast augmentation and she wanted to look similarly endowed. Richards says the surgery gave her breasts that we too large for her petite frame.
That prompted her to get them adjusted, but the surgeon left her with size D which was even larger.
“The next guy put bigger ones in, and it was not good — they were a D!”
Asked why she didn’t sue, she told the Us Weekly: “I felt very vulnerable. I was getting ready to film Wild Things and I didn’t want to get into a lawsuit with some plastic surgeon.
‘It wasn’t right what the doctor did, but it is what it is.”
The third times the charm and she got the look that helped get her a starring role in “Starship Troopers” in 1997 and subsequently her most famous role as a Bond girl in the 1999 smash hit “The World is Not Enough”. In retrospect, she is constricted about the surgeries.
She freely admonishes young women to avoid cosmetic surgery, but at the same time she enjoys a lifestyle that stems from the very looks the surgery gave her. Richards says she did the surgery as a foible of her youth and did not research cosmetic surgery sufficiently. She did not elaborate on what she research that would have constituted.
