Has Carrie Preston had Plastic Surgery?
Preston is one of the few middle-aged actresses who defy the common notion that aging harms women’s career in Hollywood. Acclaimed for her performance in The Good Wife and notable for her roles in True Blood and Person of Interest, Preston’s career is more prolific than ever. Others may suspect that the 47-year-old actress has had plastic surgery to help her achieve a younger looking appearance but the actress hasn’t had any.
According to Preston, although she knows there’s pressure in Hollywood with being a certain size and having a certain type of body, she deals with such pressures by eating well and exercising, rather than having cosmetic procedures. Another secret to avoiding pressures is to not compare herself with other women as this can trigger insecurities, which drive both men and women sometimes towards the plastic surgery route.
