Has Leelee Sobieski had Plastic Surgery?
The Deep Impact actress is now in her 30s and is a mother of two kids. She’s not as prolific as she was once before, probably because she already has a family. Still, she’s well-known among many fans who are still impressed with her performances in some of her famous films. Since she started her career as a young girl, people were able to see her transformation as an adult. Because of this, there were others who questioned such transformation, attributing it to plastic surgery. It was rumored that Sobieski underwent a rhinoplasty procedure and breast implants to improve the aforementioned parts of her body.
Observers thought that she had average breast size, but were surprised to see her pictures with bigger and fuller breasts. Thus, the claims of a breast augmentation. Also, her nose was rumored to have undergone refinement and re-shaping through cosmetic procedure. According to these rumors, her nose wasn’t perfectly shaped and the bridge was a bit crooked. So, when some people saw her nose being flawlessly polished with the bridge seemingly straightened, they immediately thought it was because of plastic surgery. When asked about the truthfulness of the reports, the actress consistently denied that she had plastic surgery, not once, not ever. She intends to grow old naturally and doesn’t think she’ll need plastic surgery in her life.
