Working Girl actress Melanie Griffith has admitted that she had bad plastic surgery done over 20 years ago.


The star said she was at the time unaware that the job had been botched. “No, I didn’t [realize] until people stared say, ‘Oh my god, what has she done?!’ I was so hurt,” Griffith said. “I went to a different doctor, and he started dissolving all of this s–t that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now.”

Griffith is one of the few women in Hollywood who has actually responded to the rumors of plastic surgery, even if 20 years after the fact. The actress has a few movies coming up, including a film with Al Pacino called Dabkha and The Disaster Artist with Greg Sestero about the hilariously failed 2003 The Room.

Griffith also opened up about her time battling alcohol abuse, and said that her time in rehab didn’t affect her three children, Alexander Bauer, 31, Dakota Johnson, 27, and Stella Banderas, 20. “I was a totally functioning mom. I wasn’t like a drunk-on-the-floor, out-of-it person,” she said. “I didn’t do some things I probably should have done but, mostly, I was there for my kids. They had a sort of privileged gypsy life.”

Griffith married Johnson’s (of Fifty Shades of Grey fame) father Don Johnson twice, and went on to marry Antonio Banderas in 1996. They split in 2014 and the actress only blames herself. “I think part of the reason my marriage to Antonio fell apart was because I was stuck; nobody else is to blame,” she said. “It’s just that I personally got stuck and I won’t let that happen again, I want to enjoy life, I want to do whatever I want to do.”
