Lee Grant’s life has been nothing less than a drama movie or a gripping novel with numerous twists and turns. The celebrated American actress and film director has been through a bumpy ride in her career facing a ban and getting blacklisted from radio, television and movies for significant twelve years. That too, soon after she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival in the year 1952, for a brilliant portrayal of a shoplifter in the movie ‘Detective Story’. Today, 87-year-old Grant doesn’t hesitate to talk about her life, insecurities and speaks freely about her prime days, when she had been blacklisted.
The veteran Hollywood actress has also been outspoken about her return into movies after the ban and her fear of aging. The Academy award winning actress has admitted several times in interviews to have undergone the knife to look younger. In her autobiography, Grant also talks about a facelift in the 30s to defy aging and start her career all over again.
Since then, Grant has been in complete denial of her age and resorted to numerous plastic surgery procedures that completely changed her look. Frantic about her age, Grant has once almost missed attending a film festival because the passport stated the wrong age. When the actress was questioned by the city staff, she had yelled and said that she was an actress and she had lied about the age her entire life. Therefore, they must let her go.
FACELIFT & BOTOX
Although, even at 87, Grant’s skin appears tighter than most women at half of her age, it surely doesn’t look natural. The forehead is clean and there are hardly any lines on the skin due to Botox, but it fails to enhance the beauty of the ‘Shampoo’ star. The cheek enhancers have done their work for a fuller, younger look.
However, due to her age, Lee’s eyes and cheeks look swollen, giving her a weird look. Her cheekbones were not as high in her youth as they are now. Due to repeated facelift, the nose looks crooked at the bridge and lovely shape of the face has gone completely. If you compare the before and after pictures of Grant, there are hardly any similarities left.
Lee Grant plastic surgery is a clear case of cosmetic abuse in the face. ‘The Landlord’ star is overdoing it. It’s high time, Hollywood’s very own ‘Drama Queen’ must come to terms with her age and accept it gracefully. Plastic surgery in Lee Grant’s case is not helping her to look beautiful, in fact, these procedures are making it worse.
