Marlo Thomas plastic surgery rumors have been around for years, and the older she gets, the sillier it is for her to deny that she’s had cosmetic surgery.
Marlo Thomas was born into a show-biz royalty. Her father, Danny Thomas, was a very successful TV star and producer. Her father was also famous for his very pronounced nose, and Marlo Thomas cosmetic rumors must have followed her since grammar school, as her nose is very slender, and looks small on her face. Back in the 1960s, when Marlo had a big hit TV show called That Girl, people assumed that she had already had at least a nose job to get her fresh, girl next door appearance.
Sometimes actresses are backed into a corner by continual denials of plastic surgery, and as the years pass, and the work they’ve done accumulates, it gets almost absurd for them to deny it any longer. Marlo Thomas is 77 years old, and doesn’t have any wrinkles on her face, but still denies that she’s ever had any work done.
A recent photo of Marlo Thomas, compared with just a few years ago, shows a profound change in her appearance that points to many plastic surgery procedures. Marlo Thomas observers point out that her nose is pinched at the end, her nostrils are now slightly asymmetrical, here eyes are lopsided and seem half shut from the rise of her cheekbones and the stretching of her upper eyelids. Since the 1970s, reports of Marlo Thomas cosmetic procedures include a nose job, boob job, facial fillers, a brow lift, and more than one facelift. Doctors point to evidence of numerous Botox sessions as well.
Marlo Thomas is another one of those actresses that have traded looking old for looking weird. She appears to have had so many procedures on her face that her nose seems pinched in the middle, and the shape of her eyebrow arches, one of her signature looks, is entirely different. She’s almost unrecognizable as her former self.
Marlo Thomas has always been a champion of women’s rights, and she used her position as the producer of her hit show That Girl to present an image of women in the media that weren’t simply an appendage in their parent’s home, or suitable only for marriage. The network and the sponsors of That Girl wanted to end the show with a wedding between the show’s main characters, but Marlo refused, and wanted to show that women could make their way in the world and be successful without being married.
Many women disparage cosmetic surgery procedures when they are young and at the height of their beauty, and equate plastic surgery with an old-fashioned desire to stay young and pretty over all other considerations. But once they get to middle age, they often change their mind, and decide they’d rather deny, deny, and deny while they slip off to the doctor’s office with big dark glasses and a scarf around their head in an effort to hold on to their beauty one more year. It looks like Marlo did just that.
