7 Celebrities Who Have Gotten Botox And Are Proud Of It

October 27, 2017 by Lisa Fogarty

There was a time when plastic surgery was a hush-hush business, especially if you were a celebrity going in for a little nip, tuck, or lift. You were ushered in through the back door and guided out and right into a car with shaded windows. There was no way on earth you’d admit your flawless, line-less face wasn’t entirely natural — despite the fact that most women or men your age showed signs of a life well lived.

But Botox kicked down those doors — or, I should say: the quick, in-office procedure removed the doors from their hinges so that curious observers could see in plain daylight how simple it was to blast away signs of aging in minutes. Botox is a drug made from a toxin that, in very small doses, can smooth out facial wrinkles. It’s primarily used on the forehead and crow’s feet, though some patients use it to treat medical conditions, and it typically lasts about three to four months until another rejection is required to keep up the magic.

Because Botox is so ubiquitous and, depending on where you have it done, can be less costly than some luxury creams, lots of celebrities who show up on the red carpet looking half their age are immediately accused of using the toxin to keep up appearances. Some deny it. But, more and more, celebs are copping up to using Botox — and could care less who knows. Here are 7 celebrities who have spoken out about their experiences with Botox.

Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford’s genetics have a lot to do with her beautiful skin — and it sure doesn’t hurt that she has her own skincare brand called Meaningful Beauty. But Crawford is honest about the limitations of creams and the effects of Botox: “I’m not going to lie to myself” she has said. “past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, Botox and collagen. I have a very simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat and exercise… but I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon.”

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is so open about using Botox that she actually let a camera film her getting the procedure for an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Unfortunately, the video also shows the eldest sister reacting poorly to a Botox injection near her eyes because she felt she looked frozen. “Are you sure it doesn’t look weird?” she asks Khloe at lunch before fearing she was suffering from an allergic reaction from the toxin. Despite this one bad experience, she later admitted on her blog that she thinks she overreacted and that she doesn’t judge anyone for using Botox.

John Mayer

After his vocal chords were damaged by a growth, singer John Mayer credited two things for his ability to sing again: surgery and Botox injections. Yep, experts are finding more than one way to use the toxin — relying on it for migraines and throat issues is becoming more and more common.

Jenny McCarthy

Jenny McCarthy has no qualms about sharing her plastic surgery experiences. “I get Botox in my forehead,” McCarthy reportedly told Life & Style magazine. “I just have my doctor do a little shot.”

Lori Loughlin

When Lori Loughlin returned as her Fuller House character, it looked as if she hadn’t aged a day. Loughlin didn’t beat around the bush and reportedly told Fox News she gets Botox because “it makes you look like you’ve been on a really nice vacation.”

Jennie Garth

Don’t expect the Beverly Hills 90210 star to get so many injections she looks frozen. Jennie Garth is all about taking a subtle approach to plastic surgery, as she admitted in People: she uses Botox in the slightest amount. “I don’t want my face to change,” she said.

Kelly Ripa

Kelly Ripa

While co-hosting her morning show Live With Kelly, Kelly Ripa shared a story about getting a bad Botox experience that left her unable to smile or move her face. But Ripa also told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that Botox was a game changer in her beauty routine. “It’s cut my getting ready time in half,” Ripa said. “I’m not advocating for it one way or another. I’m just saying Botox changed my life.”
