(MSNBC) A woman once considered one of the most beautiful actresses in the world is speaking out about the dangers of bad plastic surgery, after lip enhancement left her with what’s commonly known as “trout pout.”
The rather descriptive name is given to the overdone plumping of lips that produces a pursed appearance that makes them look… well… like a fish.
Emmanuelle Beart, who starred in “Manon of the Spring” and “Mission Impossible,” told French newspaper Le Monde, “I had my mouth done at 27. It was botched.”
Twenty years after that procedure, she’s telling the world that she regrets what she did and how it made her feel. “Today I would say, ‘I am against plastic surgery,’” she told Le Monde, “It’s a grave act. An act that touches our soul. It was frightening.”
She’s not the first to sport the “trout pout” look; in fact, it’s becoming common in some circles, even among women who most would agree were beautiful to begin with. So, why do they do it?
