Elizabeth Lee McGovern was born on July 18, 1961 in Evanston, Illinois. She was recommended to take acting lessons after an agent saw her performed in Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth. She then trained at the American Conservatory Theater, and later at The Juilliard School.
She made her film debut in 1980’s Ordinary People, and the following year, earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Ragtime. She has since starred in Once Upon a Time in America and King of the Hill, among others. On TV, she’s best known as Cora, Countess of Grantham in Downtown Abbey.
Has Elizabeth McGovern had Plastic Surgery?
Being in her 50s, McGovern is a target of plastic surgery claims. In Hollywood, it’s getting more common for both men and women in their 40s and 50s to turn to cosmetic procedures to achieve a youthful appearance. Others may say that going under the knife is sometimes a necessity for actors as there’s this great pressure in looking good on the screen regardless of the age. Elizabeth McGovern may be one of those actors who wasn’t able to resist plastic surgery and what it promises to deliver, and finally give in for an enhanced appearance.
Because of this, there are reports suggesting that McGovern has had some anti-aging procedures to make sure she maintains her youth and charm. Rumors claim that the Ragtime actress has undergone such treatments as dermal injections and even invasive procedures like a facelift and an eye lift. Observers claim that make-up and healthy living aren’t enough to turn a woman in her 50s to be two decades younger, leading them to believe that cosmetic enhancements are behind McGovern’s good looks.
