I don't get it...she's had more plastic surgery than almost anyone in Holloywood. What is she talking about?

I don't think she's had much work done compared to others. In interviews she has said she had some things done years ago and regretted it, saying how awful she thought she looked afterwards.
She fights against having her own photos photo-shopped, she doesn't dye her hair, etc etc. I think she's doing more than most in Hollywood to promote women taking a positive view of life no matter their age.

So she desperately ~tried~ to fight the aging process. But she wasn't pleased w/ the results. So now she's poo-pooing for it everyone else. Whatever, Jamie.

^ I didn't realize people weren't allowed to change their minds and learn from their mistakes. And how awful of her to try to help others not make the mistakes she made and to be happy with themselves the way they are. Shrug.

I absolutely loved the Steinbeck quote used in this...

"And now the forces marshaled around the concept of the group have declared a war of extermination on the preciousness, the mind of man. By disparagement, by starvation, by repressions, forced direction, and the stunning hammerblows of conditioning, the free, roving mind is being pursued, roped, blunted, drugged. It is a sad suicidal course our species seems to have taken.

And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about. I can understand why a system built on a pattern must try to destroy the free mind, for that is one thing which can by inspection destroy such a system. Surely I can understand this, and I hate it and I will fight against it to preserve the one thing that separates us from the uncreative beasts. If the glory can be killed, we are lost."

Wonderful

I like what she had to say and don't see her as being confused, two faced or fickle about it. Over the years I have watched people automatically accept aging with ease and others fight it tooth and nail. Most of those who fight it eventually settle into at some point and realize it doesn't automatically make them the dreaded O word. It's just changes, it is genetic, and there are many stages. I really think that is natural for many without any added social pressures. While talking to my Aunt (65) and Uncle (71) yesterday, I could not help but smile. My Aunt had been complaining about putting on some winter weight, not having as much energy, having knee problems after specific activities. She said, "It's never happened quite like this before". My Uncle looked at her and said, "Babe, you've never been 65 before. Absolutely is wrong with the way you look or the way you feel". He got out and walked with her later that afternoon too. It's not about letting yourself go or not being healthy. It's just about accepting things as they come, in different stages, and not fighting tooth and nail against the inevitable. And hopefully not going from this

For the sake of appearance. In her world there are far too many who look like this thanks to bad surgeons and relentless urge to go backwards.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

It comes off disingenuous to me. And haterish...I want plastic surgery to look young. Wahhh, I still don't look young. Nobody else should try.

I personally like Jane Fonda's approach. She admits to having had her eyes done and something else. She has better genes than most celebs and is aging gracefully, but she seems to get that plastic surgery isn't necessarily bad or a requirement for everyone.

Yes, tummy tuck and lipo around the waist.
I would have something done if it was for health related issues. But I would never get anything done to make myself look younger/thinner/flatter/boobier/smoother/prettier/whatever the current popular look is. I'm happy to age as I'm supposed to.

I've had some minor face peels, but I can't face surgery. I seem to be aging well. If I became really unhappy with my appearance I'd try to do something about it like lose weight or exercise rather than have surgery. It's too scary for me, not worth taking a chance that it would turn out worse than before. But no criticism if that's what you choose - different strokes and all of that.

If I had to have abdominal surgery for some non-cancer related reason (like to have a hernia repaired or something like that) then I would consider a tummy tuck to help with the residual multiple c-section scarring and lower belly pouch. If I could afford it and would be having surgery anyway, I might go for it. I don't think I'd risk the anesthesia, etc. for the sole purpose of getting rid of a pouch and a few scars, though.

I had an tummy tuck 5 years ago (when I was 35). I was a gym rat and in awesome physical shape but there was no possible way for me to lose the little jelly roll that had been caused by two enormous pregnancies, without surgery, so I got it done.

It was super easy and my tummy is flat as a board, like it had been pre-pregnancy, and I'm able to wear all of the types of clothes I like. So no regrets.

(well, I did wind up getting Essure performed at the same time, at my dr's urging...but that's another story. Not really related.)

IDK if I would ever get anything else done.

The tummy tuck didn't have anything to do w/ age. I saw it as more reconstructive after being "disfigured" by pregnancy. That's kind of a no-brainer for me. But just to look young? IDK not sure.

What is "Essure"?

I'm way too chicken to have anything done, especially anything facial - I think I'd be freaked out to see something different looking back at me from the mirror. As I've got older though, I do have a bit more understanding of why people go down that route.

I had it done at the same time as the tummy tuck but it's not related.

I like Jamie Lee too.

I don't think I'd have any kind of surgery. I'm mostly happy with my body. I think I'm becoming more accepting of myself as I get older. I would really like to try out some acupuncture on my face though. If I stick to a regular face routine and keep myself well hydrated, then it shows favorably on my face. The acupuncture would just be for funsies I think. I wonder if I could convince my husband I need it done because of my migraines.
