New Jersey native and best selling novelist Janet Evanovich recently commented on her cosmetic surgery past.
The 70-year-old author claims that she had a facelift when she turned 60 and that the surgery, a birthday present to herself, was the best thing she ever did.
“I had a fabulous surgeon,” Evanovich told Time. “I told them, ‘I don’t want to be pulled so tight, I don’t want to look like I’m twelve. I just want to look good for my age.’ It was just an amazing experience. I had it done because I was looking at someone in the mirror and I had no idea who she was.
“She just didn’t look like who I felt like inside. I was starting to have droopy eyes and I didn’t know who that was. It was a total identity disconnect. So I got up the courage, because I’m not really a doctor person, and went in and got this facelift. I get up in the morning and I look in the mirror, and I think, ‘Huh, I’m still pretty cute.’”
Evanovich claims that her beauty crew helped her look as young as she felt.
“I have a real good crew,” Evanovich told Time. “I have a fantastic hairdresser. I have a guy who gives me, what he calls, his ‘beauty lite.’ I have a real team. I really do. I don’t look like that when I’m sitting at my computer and going off to the supermarket. I think that age is just a number. While I don’t look quite as glamorous as I do in my pictures everyday, I think I’m doing pretty good.
“I get up in the morning and the truth is, I think I’m 35, that’s how I feel. I feel like I’m 35. I feel like I’m a working woman. I’ve been very fortunate – I’m never sick. Aside from falling off the stage and breaking my foot a couple yeas ago, I just don’t have anything wrong with me. I don’t know what you’re supposed to feel at 70 but it’s not an issue for me. I just don’t feel 70. It’s just an arbitrary number.”
