After ‘Arrested Development’ fans reacted to her different appearance and doctors told us they think she’s had work done, Portia herself is speaking out, saying she isn’t trying to chase her youth. See what she said below.
Portia de Rossi is back as Lindsay Bluth-Fünke on the much-anticipated return of Arrested Development. Fans and doctors have speculated she’s had massive plastic surgery, but in a recent interview, the 40-year-old claims she’s not trying to look half her age.
Portia De Rossi’s Plastic Surgery — She Responds To The Rumors
“The trick for me turning 40 was to really evaluate what I wanna do with this next phase in my life,” she told PEOPLE magazine for their “Most Beautiful” issue, which hit stands on May 6.
“The one thing I don’t wanna do is chase what I looked like at 20,” she said.
Portia says she looks young because she eats a vegan diet and “dress[es] like a teenager.”
“As women we’re so conditioned to think that beauty and age are very important — that you stay kind of youthful in order to be beautiful. I don’t think it’s fair for people to think that women are just vain because they’re worried about getting older. It’s actually really linked in with a lot of very primitive stuff for women.”
Portia De Rossi’s Plastic Surgery — Top Docs Comment On Her New Look
Despite her comments, doctors we interviewed told us they believe she has had work done.
Dr. Edward P. Miranda, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who practices in San Francisco, Calif. tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
“It appears that Portia underwent nasal tip reconstruction. Her nose used to point downward, and you can clearly see it is now upturned. She also may have had blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to make her eyes appear wider. Lastly, she definitely appears to have Botox injections (judging by her perfectly smooth forehead) and filler injections to the border of her upper lip.”
Dr. Theodore Diktaban, one of New York City’s top double Board-certified Plastic Surgeons & Otolaryngologists, reveals to us EXCLUSIVELY:
“The most obvious thing for sure, is that she had her nose done. There’s no doubt about it. The position of the tip has definitely changed. There is a possibility she had some facial fillers for more fullness. It’s hard to tell if she had Botox because I’m looking at a still picture. She also may have had something done to her lower eyelids.”
