TV host Anne Robinson has hit out at Britain's obsession with beauty, despite having previously undergone a facelift
Anne Robinson has hit out at Britain's obsession with beauty - even though she's had a facelift.
The 72-year-old TV presenter has denied having undergone any further surgery since going under the knife 13 years ago, saying rumours to the contrary are "rubbish".
She shared: "Look, I had a facelift 13 years ago. But I don't drink, I don't smoke, my hair is highlighted once a month, I run and I don't eat crap food. I try quite hard to look OK.
"I don't go and have my face pulled around all the time."
The former 'Weakest Link' host also admitted to being frustrated by the attention surrounding her facelift surgery, while other celebrities are never asked about the issue.
She told The Sun newspaper: "There are 5,000 face surgeons in this country and I seem to be the only woman on TV who has had a facelift. How does that work?
"There are fewer British film stars in their late sixties that haven't had a facelift than the ones who have.
"Unfortunately, if you go to the wrong surgeon people really are going to notice. You need to go to one that makes you look well, not like a witch."
But Anne admitted that like the majority of Brits, she is also obsessed with her looks.
Anne reflected: "We're all obsessed with how we look. I'm guilty of this. I keep fit. I don't like to see the scales go to nine stone. I love clothes and I always have.
"But young people are now obsessed with working out. I met this couple who are always in the gym. They don't get p***ed. It's all very boring.
"The young generation is setting the bar very high because of that woman Kim Kardashian. But, really, who'd want to look like Kim Kardashian?"
