Since her breakout role in the 1988 film Working Girl, actress Melanie Griffith has been a Hollywood staple, best known for her blonde hair and her trademark bright red lipstick. However, through the years her looks have undergone several transformations, including plastic surgery, which many fans have been vocal about.
“People started saying, ‘Oh my God, what has she done?!’ I was so hurt," she said in a 2017 interview with Porter magazine about her cosmetic procedures. "I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this s--t that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now.”
That wasn't the first time she had spoken up about negative backlash about her appearance. In 2012, she revealed that fans were leaving her mean comments on Twitter about her looks.
"Most people are telling me I look horrible," she said. "I don’t know if I look that great, [but] I work out a lot. I have a trainer that I [work with] four times a week, and I do hot yoga."
Melanie has also been vocal about the pressures older women face in Hollywood. In 2002, she told an amusing anecdote on Larry King Live about how Revlon canceled her contract and moved her to the "age defying" line — at 34!
"I was extremely flattered [about the line], [but] I mean, it's age-defying at 34?" she said on the show. "Shouldn't age-defying be at, like, 50 or 60?"
"Yeah, it's kind of funny. People go, 'Wow, you're a really good actress.' And I go, 'Well, yeah. I worked forever. I know what I'm doing and I love what I do. So, thank you?'" she said in 2016. "People forget very easily in this business. They have a short memory."
