The singer and on-screen star made the shocking revelation last night during an acceptance speech at the Costume Designers Guild Awards in Los Angeles, California, where she joked, “Time has a way of smoothing everything out.”

While she’s mostly kept quiet on the subject in the past, Bette (seen left in 2016 and right on Monday) admitted in 2008 that she was considering getting plastic surgery
Formerly experts in the field of plastic surgery theorized that she underwent a facelift and got Botox injections and facial fillers – and while she didn’t specify what kind of work she did last night, she finally confirmed that she did indeed change her look.
While she’s mostly kept quiet on the subject in the past, Bette did admit that she was considering getting plastic surgery when she spoke to Extra in 2008.
She said at the time, “Don’t everyone think about it? If it really starts to collapse, I’ll probably think about it.’
While speaking to the audience before presenting her with the award, Bette’s designer friend Michael Kaplan recalled a time when the Hollywood icon was mistaken for a Sears department store employee.
He explained that they were shopping together in Los Angeles when he told her to wait for him while he tried on some things in the dressing room.
“When I came back, they thought she was a clerk, customers lined up (they said, ‘Ma’am, I have three dresses to try on.’
‘Was she annoyed? Not in the least. She replied, “Changing room number three is free dear.”‘
Many of Hollywood’s leading ladies have admitted to going under the knife over the years.
To take Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda, 85, for instance, confirmed in her 2018 Netflix documentary Jane Fonda in Five Acts that her age-defying looks didn’t just come from her genes.
“I’m glad I look good for my age, but I’ve had plastic surgery,” she said. “I’m not going to lie about that.”
The Barberella star explained that she was “tired of looking tired,” but added: “I hate the fact that I’ve felt the need to physically change myself to feel I’m okay.
‘I wish I wasn’t like that. I like older faces. I like weathered faces. I loved Vanessa Redgrave’s face. I wish I was braver. But I am what I am.’
The starlet, 77, made the shocking revelation when she accepted the award for Most Distinguished Collaborator at the Costume Designers Guild Awards Monday night in Los Angeles.
“I look great, I know,” she is then heard to say in a video obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com, before confessing, “I had some tailoring done on my face.”
The 64-year-old Madonna apparently confirmed she had some work done after fans took to social media last month to express concern about her drastically different appearance when she attended the Grammys Awards.
Many people labeled the singer as ‘unrecognizable’ after she took the stage to present an award at the event.
She responded to the comments by sharing a photo of herself on Twitter days later, writing, “Look how cute I am now that the swelling from the surgery has gone down. Lol’ — but she didn’t share any other details about the specific procedure she underwent.
Sharon Stone, 64, has also spoken out about getting work done. She said Vogue Arabia in 2018 that she regularly received Botox injections during the height of her career – until she suffered a serious stroke in 2001.
“There were periods in superfame when I got botox and filler and stuff, and then I had a massive stroke and a nine-day brain hemorrhage and I had to have over 300 injections of botox and filler to get one side of my face back. up,” she revealed.
The Basic Instinct star said the incident totally changed her view of plastic surgery, turning it from a “cute luxury to a huge, painful neurological need.”
She also told the publication that a younger man she had recently dated asked her if she would consider using cosmetic enhancements again, to which she said she replied, “It would probably be really good for your ego and mine if I did that.’
She added that the relationship ended soon after, saying, “I saw him again after that and then he wasn’t interested in seeing me anymore.
“If you don’t see me for longer than that, please find your way to the exit.”
