McKayla Maroney is tired of people focusing on her plump pout! The former Olympian has quashed suggestions that she had lip injections, and instead gave away the secret to her changing appearance. Click to here how she changed her looks!
The 20-year-old slammed haters who are criticizing her “trout mouth” on July 14, claiming that she has not enlarged her lips to Seventeen magazine in a new interview. Fans have been speculating that she’s had work done after seeing her drastically plumper pout via a video shared on July 10 by the US Women’s Gymnastics Olympic Trials. The clip shows a side-by-side comparison of her appearance now and during the time when she took home the gold at London in 2012.
But “Fierce Five” member McKayla wasn’t having any of it. “First of all, that I haven’t. And I’ve posted a picture on Instagram last night that was like, how do I make my face look like I didn’t do anything to my face when I literally have not done anything to my face?” McKayla continued to explain how she creates the illusion of fuller lips: “One of my best friends, Alexa Losey, is a YouTuber. She got me into the makeup and all the tutorials. And Halsey, she’s one of my favorite singers, and she over-lines her lips. People are used to her doing that and they’re not used to me doing that, so when I started, they freaked out. But it’s OK.”
McKayla’s fans immediately noticed the change in the gymnasts’ appearance and photos of the sports star went viral as soon as she jumped onto Instagram, with some fans comparing her to 18-year-old Kylie Jenner. And we can really see why!
McKayla also revealed that her time on the Olympics made her “depressed” and is something she no longer wants to pursue, prompting her to dive into acting roles such as Hart of Dixie, Bones and Superstore. Instead her passion is for music and she will be hopefully forging her career in song, taking inspiration from none other than Drake!
