Laura Leggett Linney was born on February 5, 1964 in New York City, New York. She enrolled at Northwestern University before she transferred to Brown University where she studied acting and graduated with a BFA degree in 1986. She further trained in acting at the Juilliard School.
She first came to recognition when she starred in the miniseries Tales of the City and further rose to fame for her roles in Congo, Primal Fear and Absolute Power. It was, however, her role as Jim Carrey’s wife in 1998’s The Truman Show that made her an international sensation.
Has Laura Linney had Plastic Surgery?
Linney has been recognized internationally for her critically acclaimed performances in several films, and her talent is not the only factor that makes her an incredible woman. Now 50, the Primal Fear actress has never had any plastic surgery to help her improve her looks or interfere with aging. She had confessed that over the course of her acting career she has felt the pressure of maintaining beauty and looking younger in Hollywood but managed to prosper in her craft without having anything done.
As an actress who is very much serious in what she can give to her work, she is aware of the consequences of plastic surgery, and these consequences always make her think twice about cosmetic procedures as she doesn’t want to sacrifice and compromise her genuine ability to express facial emotions for the sake of fake beauty. Despite her strong resistance against cosmetic operations, Linney reveals that she doesn’t have a problem with those people who choose to do such thing nor judge them for their decisions.
