Natasha T. Henstridge was born on August 15, 1974 in Springdale, Newfoundland, Canada. She started a modeling career at age 14 when she entered the Casablanca Modeling Agency’s Look of the Year competition and finished as runner-up. At age 15, she went to Paris to further pursue modeling and appeared on the cover French Cosmopolitan that same year.
After a successful modeling career, she ventured into acting, making her film debut in 1995’s Species, which gained her instant recognition. She has since starred in other films like Maximum Risk, Species II, The Whole Nine Yards and Bounce, among others.
Has Natasha Henstridge had Plastic Surgery?
Natasha Henstridge achieved mainstream attention for her role in Species, and not just for her role but for the accompanying nudity that she notoriously did in the film. However, Henstridge wasn’t really gifted with a killer body as most viewers were led to believe. In an interview in 2009, the Species star admitted that her slim body was a result of extreme dieting that eventually damaged her body.
In the present, Henstridge sports a curvaceous body, unlike her image in the 1990s and she’s fine with it. Talking about her experience in dealing with the pressures of looking thin in Hollywood, the 40-year-old actress said: “I’ve done some things that probably weren’t the smartest things in the world”, implying about taking pills and over-the-counter supplements to help her become thinner.
