In Part 3 of TVGuide.com's new Body Talk series, we take a look at stars' nose jobs, tummy tucks and the other procedures they've admitted to having.
Cosmetic surgery is nothing new in the whirlwind of Hollywood trends. Stars young and old have been doing it for years. "Honey, if it's saggin', baggin' or draggin',"
told Larry King, "I'm gonna have it nipped, tucked or sucked." Yeehaw!
And Dolly isn't the only one. Cosmetic surgery is prevalent in Hollywood, and more and more celebrities are discussing their nips and tucks in public.
, 58, and his longtime girlfriend,
, 50, put their surgical experience on full view when they documented their face-lifts on their reality show,
Gene Simmons Family Jewels
, 43, keeps a public record of her cosmetic antics via her blog. And
, 47, told King that she'd had "a brow-lift, where they take your eyebrows and put them on a completely different part of your head, and you look months younger."
, 56, recently told
that she got a boob job in anticipation of flashing Owen Wilson in
, 35, told
she wanted a nose job after a surfing accident because "One side is totally shattered - my septum is basically like a train derailed."
Dancing with the Stars
also had her twice-broken schnoz fixed.
has admitted that she was "just thrilled" with her breast augmentation. In perhaps the understatement of the century,
said to the ladies of
, "I've had a few things done."
, 32, discussed her stomach surgery with
: "I got lipo because even though I was skinny, I wanted - I'm not going to lie - a six-pack."
And it's not just the sisters who are doing it. Plenty of guys in Hollywood are following suit. Even the sneering
, 48, has admitted to using Botox. "Every guy I know... has had it now," he told the U.K.'s
. Country star
, 69, has no qualms about discussing his own plastic surgery, saying the pressures of the entertainment industry are so great he's surprised when he meets a performer who
had work done.
But not everybody's going under the knife. The new James Bond,
, recently made a vow that he'd never have plastic surgery because he didn't want to end up looking like a "freak" or a "lesbian." It may be easy for Craig to say so, since he's only 39, but
Sir Anthony Hopkins
, 70, also doesn't want to get "work" done. "Leave it alone for heaven's sake," he has said. "Just get old." Adds
, 38, "Plastic surgery is a sucker-trap. If everyone keeps doing it, it puts more pressure on everybody to do it."
has been getting Botox and vitamin injections since she was - get this - 29. But she seems to be reevaluating her choices. "I am 41, people," she recently told TV Guide. "I know I look different than I did when I was 20."
has also changed sides. She had a breast augmentation many years ago but has had the implants removed and is now speaking out against plastic surgery. "I'm going to try to organize other women in my profession to say no to the 'duck lips' and getting rid of wrinkles. Somebody's gotta give a face to old age!" (When Fonda's

costar Parton heard this quote, by the way, she reportedly quipped, "Well, it ain't gonna be me!")
Our readers seem to be almost evenly divided on the issue. In a recent poll, we asked you if you would ever undergo cosmetic surgery: 44 percent of you responded "No way!" But the rest weren't ruling anything out: Almost 30 percent said "I'd consider it," while another 26 percent were even more gung-ho, answering "Sure, if I could afford it."
On the other hand, you weren't too excited when
High School Musical
, 22, got a nose job, allegedly to fix a deviated septum. "I like the way it looks," Tisdale said of her new face, "like when I was a little girl." Only 14 percent of you approved of Tisdale's nose, while 32 percent answered, "Meh. I can take it or leave it." And 54 percent said, "She looks
"I had a deviated septum fixed this summer," said TVGuide.com reader schrantz. "If I came out looking like this, I would have been
Michelle Heller What's your take?
Is getting plastic surgery just a part of the job of being an actor or public person? Do people usually look better or worse after having work done? Should more stars speak out about the procedures they've had, or should it be a matter of "don't ask, don't tell"?
