Former Playboy Playmate of the Year Jenny McCarthy is quitting her Botox sessions for good after the procedure reportedly ruined her ability to smile.
The curvaceous blonde beauty of the teen comedy "John Tucker Must Die" who has been linked to Jim Carrey found that the injections limited her facial expressions during a photo shoot for the cover of her parenthood book "Baby Laughs."
McCarthy was horrified when she discovered she had a hard time smiling. Botox is a popular cosmetic procedure where small doses of the deadly botulinum toxin are injected on the face to smoothen wrinkles.
They had to do it in five different places. It paralyses (facial muscles) for about three months, but burns and stings, she narrated.
When asked why she had the injections, McCarthy replied, "I'm a girl, I'm insecure. I never took myself as the prissiest, prettiest woman alive. I've got my own problems."
McCarthy knows when too much of a good thing is bad. Unfortunately, that is not the case with other Hollywood stars who appear to be addicted to Botox and no longer look natural. Nicole Kidman and Sylvester Stallone are two examples of bad Botox treatments.
Kidman's repeated use of Botox has led to her having an expressionless, frigid look in some public appearances and has caused some critics to accuse her of having a 'Botox brow', which leads to an excessively arched eyebrow that can make the person look angry, said Make Me Heal's Celebrity Plastic Surgery News.
As for "Rocky Balbotox", critics say the former action star is no longer the hunk he used to be. Although he looks younger than his age, Stallone's cosmetic treatments are far from perfect.
Some of you may have caught Sylvester Stallone getting back in the ring in the latest installment of Rocky. If you were around in the 80s, Stallone was the go-to-action hero of the day. The Gossip Squad is split on how we feel about Rambo's new look. Some of us feel that Sly's new face is decidedly overbotoxified (did we just invent this word) and that his facelift is poorly executed because he barely looks like himself anymore. One of our cohorts thinks that we should give Sly a bit of a break because he looks more like 40 than 60. But we all agree that with the cosmetic enhancements, Sly simply doesn't look like himself anymore, said Make Me Heal.
