houseandwhips.com – Tina Fey is one of the very few Hollywood celebrities who hasn’t hopped on to the trend of plastic surgery and yet, she looks as beautiful as when she was young. The comedian has been very vocal about her dislike for Botox and has said that she would never choose to do that. Tina Fey has been very consistent with her stance against plastic surgery.
From the get-go of her career when she broke into comedy in the comedy group The Second City, Tina Fey had shown her brilliance in it. She only began to establish and then solidify her position as one of the most genius comedians and writers in Hollywood after she joined the NBC sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live as a writer and then, got promoted to the position of a head writer.
Tina Fey created a league of her own in comedy after she wrote the screenplay for Mean Girls in 2004 and created and starred in the NBC sitcom 30 Rock in 2006 following her departure from SNL. She became the youngest recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor in 2010 when she was awarded the honor. That’s tough to follow but her career has only been on an upward trajectory because she might not have been very prolific with her content but she has been very mindful of quality. Anyway, let’s talk about her stance on plastic surgery because she is one of the hot and happenings in the industry as she has always been!
Tina Fey’s Plastic Surgery: She Has Had None!
Tina Fey is one of the rarest celebrities in Hollywood in that she is one of the very few public figures who hasn’t undergone plastic surgery for any minor tweaks or to buy her youth. Until now, she has done a great job of resisting succumbing to the impossible standards of beauty and pressure to stay young.

Nobody has ever described what it is to be an aging actress in Hollywood better and more aptly than when Tina, at the age of 45, said that “her most fierce adversary as a thespian is the simple passage of time” in 2016. Given how youth is the flavor of showbiz, that’s one of the most bitter truths of an actress’ life who are pushed to the sidelines once they start aging. In order to avoid being sidelined because of their age, they try to hide that they are getting old by covering up with plastic surgery.
Tina Fey has so far avoided giving in to the pressure that the entertainment industry puts actors and actresses through so, you would think she is at peace having managed to not let the shallowness of the industry get to her but no, she is not content even with that because she is not appreciative of the attitude that people have about celebrities who choose to age naturally. They act like aging without the use of plastic surgery is a beacon of light and bravery when it should be normal as it comes. As she said,
The greatest challenge for me as an actress is just getting older. Trying to play the scene at hand while also trying to hold your face up. Fast-forward to being 68, and it’s a glorious act of bravery.
Tina Fey would like to be spared from comments about bravery because she chose not to get cosmetic surgery but, as a public figure, she is not going to get what she wants. She is always going to have people talk about her appearance. If she develops wrinkles and lines on her face, which she has because she is 53, people are going to write pages about it. Yet, she is in no rush to get Botox injections in the face of such intense scrutiny because she has observed that people who get plastic surgery do not always have a happy and beautiful ending with how they turn out after the procedures.

Recalling what she saw in the 2016 Golden Globes – faces that didn’t move and didn’t look like they belonged to a human – the Saturday Night Live alum said that she was not going to choose to put her face through cosmetic procedures.
There were people on the Globes in their 20s who were so Botoxed. In their 20s! We’ve been so conditioned now to never see a real human face, one that moves, with its original teeth. Sometimes we forget that there is a choice. I choose not to do this. It’s like wearing multiple pairs of Spanx: Good for you, not for me. Not mandatory.
Tina Fey has always been like that. Against plastic surgery. She feels very strongly about it and she was once criticized for being too brutal with her views when she chose to show a very merciless portrayal of Dr. Frederic Brandt, a plastic surgeon to the stars who was said to perform surgeries on himself, in her show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. He hung himself and committed suicide not long after and many accused her of pushing the plastic surgery expert over the edge. That was the one time when people didn’t respond well to her humor.
However, if people were to recall everything correctly, they would remember that Tina Fey has never been one to mince her words and that incident in isolation was not more brutal than her usual brutal. Remember when she explained why she would have laser treatments but not Botox in 2009,
You can point any kind of laser at my face, but I don’t think Botox is for me. I think it is bad. People who have too much Botox look like their faces are full of candles — a shiny, shiny face. Festive. A holiday candle.
I think it can be safely said that Tina Fey hasn’t had any plastic surgery. She hasn’t ever considered it and she might never do so in the future. What she said might have been an admission of lasers which many people suspect her of because her skin looks so good but that does not really qualify as cosmetic surgery as it’s non-invasive stuff. If she has had it, it’s a cosmetic alteration but nothing as drastic as actual plastic surgery.
