Has Portia de Rossi had Plastic Surgery?
The 41-year-old actress sparked rumors of plastic surgery after she once again portrayed Lindsay Bluth Fünke in Arrested Development’s return in 2013. Fans of the show instantly clamored over de Rossi’s drastic transformation that led them to speculate she may have undergone cosmetic procedures. Even some plastic surgeons backed the claims up, sharing their professional perspective on de Rossi’ alleged surgical enhancements.
Claims suggest that the actress has had a nose job, eyelid surgery, Botox and filler injections, based on her drastic make-over. But de Rossi denied all the rumors of plastic surgery, saying she’s not trying to look half her age. She explained: “The trick for me turning 40 was to really evaluate what I wanna do with this next phase in my life. The one thing I don’t wanna do is chase what I looked like at 20.” She then credited her vegan diet and her teenage fashion to her youthful appearance.
