Has Virginia Madsen had Plastic Surgery?
Already nearing her 60s, the actress said she hasn’t done any plastic surgery — at least not yet. While she doesn’t judge those who decide to undergo cosmetic procedures, her need for it hasn’t come yet. “Someone was criticizing an actress for using Botox, and said to me, ‘You would never do that. I cant criticize other actressesits just so hard for any of us to get workso I replied, ‘Well, I do. Then Allergan asked me to be a spokesperson,” said Madsen. When asked if she’d get one.
