"I didn’t tell my husband, and then for about six months, he kept saying, ‘Hello, pretty!’ and then I told him, and he found it hilarious," she added. "And then it wore off. It’s temporary. But I’ve always loved faces that aren’t symmetrical and teeth that aren’t flawless.”
2.Cardi B got illegal biopolymer butt injections during her early 20s and got them removed when she turned 30. She even warned her fans to never get the procedure done.
During an Instagram Live, she said, "All I'm going to say is that if you're young, if you're 19, 20, 21, and sometimes you're too skinny, and you be like, 'OMG, I don't have enough fat to put in my ass,' so you result to ass shots, don't!"
3.Cindy Crawford shared that she's gotten Botox injections in the past. She said, "I’m not going to lie to myself, past a certain age, creams work on the texture of your skin but, in order to restore elasticity, all I can really count on is vitamin injections, botox, and collagen," she said.
"I have a very simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat, and exercise…but I owe the quality of my skin to my cosmetic surgeon," she added.
4.Gwyneth Paltrow got Botox injections when she turned 40 and recalled the experience being a "disaster." "I didn’t do anything else for a long, long time," she said. "I was bruised, my forehead was completely frozen, and I didn’t look like myself at all."
She later switched to Xeomin injectables, which she feels gives her a more natural look. “By getting injectables, it’s like admitting a vulnerability. I think sometimes honesty is perceived to be a weakness... There does seem to be a lot of stigma around injections," she said.
5.Years ago, Anna Farisdecided to get lip injections in her upper lip, and she said, "I noticed a small difference, but no one else ever said anything. I kept wondering if anybody else even noticed."

6.Back in 2017, Courteney Cox shared that she dissolved her facial fillers after scrutiny from the media and her loved ones.
She recently opened up to the Sunday Times explaining that she initially got the fillers because she was "chasing" the youthfulness she had years prior but regrets the decision. "There was a time when you go, 'Oh, I'm changing. I'm looking older.' And I tried to chase that [youthfulness] for years," she added. "And I didn't realize that, oh shit, I'm actually looking really strange with injections and doing stuff to my face that I would never do now."
7.Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi opened up about getting lip injections saying that she loved her "natural beauty," but she got the procedure done because she wanted to "feel better" about herself.
On Instagram she wrote, "I've always hated my thin lips and never thought I had the balls to get needles in my lip to perfect them, but I did! Trust me girls, I was terrified to get my first 'procedure' ever done, but it wasn't terrible at all! And I hate needles! I love my 'natural beauty,' but being able to enhance my lips to make me feel better about myself is life."
8.Blac Chyna (who has since reclaimed her birth name Angela White) got illegal silicone butt injections from someone who wasn't a real doctor and finally got them removed this year.

"Enough is enough. It all has to come out," she said, explaining why she was also removing her facial fillers. "Back to the baseline. Honestly, I'm just tired of the look, and it's just not flattering, it's not what I look like. It totally changed my face."
9.Joe Jonas opened up about getting Xeomin injectables, which are similar to Botox but are a pure form of botulinum toxin without any stabilizing proteins. He said, "There's this stigma, especially with men, around getting injectables. I have many guy friends who have done it, and they're shy to speak on it."
"Maybe just because it's not something that we, or at least for myself, [I was] around much growing up," he added. "There's just this idea that this is something we don't talk about. But I like the idea that we can break that and have a conversation where it's not a big deal."

Then, in her spinoff series, Life with Kylie, she explained her reasoning for getting filler in the first place: "I have really small lips, and it was, like, one of my first kisses, and a guy was like, ‘I didn’t think you would be a good kisser because you have such small lips.’ But I took that really hard.”

17.Khloé Kardashian revealed that she had the fillers in her face dissolved because she hated how they looked. "I don't know if it's Botox or filler, [but] I did one of them, and my whole face went numb and I could not make [an expression]," she said.

18.Molly-Mae Hague revealed that she removed the filler from her lips, which she first got when she was 17.
“I was doing a club appearance and took a selfie,” she said. “I remember staring at it and thinking, ‘I don’t know what I’ve done to my face.’ I went from looking like a teenager to someone on Botched. I’ve never thought of myself as insecure, but I must have been to do that.”
19.Finally, Robin Wright once shared that she gets the "tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year." "Everybody fucking does it," she told the Telegraph. "I suppose I can't say 'everybody' because I don't know for sure, but come on. It's just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year."
"I think most women do 10 units, but that freezes the face and you can't move it," she explained. "This is just one unit, and it's just sprinkled here and there to take the edge off... Perhaps it's not wise to put that in a magazine? But I ain't hiding anything."
