Could the young star have gone under the knife?
The former Disney star is as youthful as she is but despite her young age, she is no exception to plastic surgery rumors. Being in popular Disney projects such as 2008’s Camp Rock, Martin is a familiar face particularly among teens. So when her face changed a bit dramatically, viewers thought the actress may have had her way into cosmetic procedures. After all, it’s not very shocking that some young girls opt for a plastic surgery to deal with their insecurities, especially in Hollywood.
Reportedly, the Camp Rock star has had a rhinoplasty procedure based on the change on her nose, which also changed the projection of her face, giving her a more mature appearance. Her being cast on the lead of the TV film Mean Girls 2, the sequel to the 2004 hit Mean Girls, also led her to be compared to the latter film’s lead Lindsay Lohan, who has gone drastic physical changes courtesy of surgical enhancements. Some viewers wondered if Martin could have ended up like Lohan – young and surgically enhanced. Fans of the actress surely hopes she was confident enough to resist plastic surgery.
The film and TV actress, however, ignored the reports despite the persistence of it all. It can also be considered that since Martin has just reached her early 20s, it is also possible that the change on her face is just part of of her naturally growing up. Whether she has gone under the knife or is just maturing as nature dictates, the answer still stays ambiguous as the young star herself chooses to keep her silence.
