Has Melora Hardin had Plastic Surgery?
She’s turning 51 this year but the film and television star remains youthful. Could this be a case of plastic surgery? Or is the actress’ healthy lifestyle enough to keep her looking fabulous? In an interview, Hardin got candid about her thoughts on plastic surgery. She said:
“Plastic surgery has become a weird Hollywood addiction. The more people buy into it, the more power it has over us. It’s definitely not something I am doing or going to do. I hope to grow old gracefully and make the most of what God gave me.” Simply put, the actress prefers to age gracefully rather than to resort to cosmetic procedures.
