Has Lea Thompson had Plastic Surgery?
The actress may already be in her 50s but it sure doesn’t show. She remains slender and her face remains flawless. Despite plastic surgery being typical in Hollywood, Thompson said she hasn’t had any cosmetic procedure. Instead, she relies on sticking to a healthy lifestyle to keep her young and glowing. She said yoga and proper skincare help her maintain a youthful appearance.
In an interview, she said: “I keep my beauty regime pretty simple and natural. I can’t use those intense glycolic acids. I keep it pretty basic.” She also expressed her fear in resorting to a plastic surgery, saying: “It seems really scary to me to do anything else.” Whether she’s had plastic surgery or not, it is clear that the actress looks so younger than her actual age.
