Has Kim Basinger had Plastic Surgery?
Kim Basinger has been in the show business for a long time and throughout her career, she has not only achieved success, recognition and acclaim for her acting, she has also received significant claims about her involvement with plastic surgery. But the L.A. Confidential actress has never admitted to any cosmetic procedures, maintaining her stand that she has never had anything done to her face and body all these years. Even her daughter, Ireland, praised Basinger for aging gracefully by staying out of the plastic surgery route, tweeting in 2012:
“Your skincare, workouts, and advice on eating healthy inspire me to do the same.” She then added: “Ladies, if you want to avoid Botox and other skin treatments, listen to my mom! She hasn’t had one treatment done because she’s stayed completely out of the sun all these years!” The Daily Mail also reported that instead of turning to plastic surgery to help her maintain her youthful glow, Basinger relies on collagen therapy gel to help plump up fine lines.
