Anna Faris Says Breast Augmentation Surgery Was Empowering

The House Bunny star Anna Faris says that she didn't have her breasts surgically enlarged to appeal to "the man." Instead, she says, she did it to make herself look better in a bikini. It's not entirely clear what the difference is, but Faris insists the surgery was not a betrayal of her feminism.

When it came time to decide whether plastic surgery was right for her, Anna Faris says it all came down to a really simple factor: how she would look in a bikini.

In the May issue of Women’s Health, the 41-year-old Overboard actress explained that while she “never, ever thought” she’d get plastic surgery, things changed when she was 30.

“I was always a negative-A cup, so when I was 30, I was getting a porce [she was married to Ben Indra for four years], I had just finished House Bunny, and I’d sold another movie, all of these new things were happening to me, so I got my breasts done,” the actress told Women’s Health, adding that “it was f— awesome.”

“I never, ever thought I’d do something like that,” she continued, explaining that she “always thought plastic surgery was caving in to ‘the man,’ you know? But it came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini.”

“I’m still floored that I did it, because I am a staunch feminist. I kept thinking, am I betraying my own gender by doing this?” Faris admitted.

But despite her own initial reservations, Faris says she thinks “that people should be able to do whatever they want, whether it’s getting braces, bleaching their hair, getting extensions, getting a boob job, getting vaginal surgery, or getting a nose job.”
