In her revealing new memoir, Naya Rivera recalls her decision to get a boob job at just 18 years old after being tired of keeping her bras ‘stuffed with napkins.’ Read all about it right here!
Naya Rivera, 29, has finally confirmed that she had plastic surgery to enhance her breasts when she was a teenager. The confession comes inside her new memoir, Sorry Not Sorry, in which she explains that her lack of boobs seriously affected her self esteem while she was growing up.
“I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out. ‘I’m getting plastic surgery!’ I’d tell them gleefully,” Naya writes inside her book. “My new boobs were a confidence thing, not a sexual thing.”
Naya continues, explaining further how insecure she was before getting implants. “I’d never even taken my top off for a guy. I hadn’t had many opportunities to do so, but even if I had, my bra was always stuffed with napkins.” Aw. The young actress used money she saved from early acting jobs to get the surgery done, and as soon as she turned 18 years old she treated herself to a new pair of boobs.
“As soon as I went back to school, [the boys] all practically fell over themselves rushing to see who could hold the door open for me,” Naya explains, revealing how different life was after her surgery. “People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than 10 years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have been the best $8k I’ve ever spent.”
Since Naya made it to the big time with her role as Santana on Glee, she’s been known as one of the sexiest actresses in the game. It’s clear that Naya’s surgery definitely boosted her confidence, as she totally nailed being Santana for years — a character that was slightly more promiscuous than the rest.
