Has Kelly Rutherford had Plastic Surgery?
The mother of two may be in her mid 40s but she certainly doesn’t look like the type and can still attract attention even when around hot, young women like Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. Her secret? According to some reports back in 2009, Rutherford admitted to having Botox to help her maintain a smoother, radiant-looking skin. The Gossip Girl actress was even quoted saying, “If you feel like having it, go for it!”.
However, in an interview in 2012, Rutherford said that her secret to looking younger and fabulous doesn’t involve cosmetic procedures. She revealed that it’s quality sleep that helps her look great despite her age. She said: “I think rest is so important, especially when you have children”. She added: “A lot of what makes us not look great as moms is that we are tired.”
