In Hollywood, looking good is paramount. Especially if you're in the acting or modelling game.

As a result of this pressure, plenty of A-listers opt for a nip and tuck from one of L.A.'s respected plastic surgeons. Some prefer to keep their procedures to themselves (which is fine—it's completely up to them) but other celebrities are less secretive.

From Botox to boob jobs and other non-invasive cosmetic treatments, here are the celebrities who aren't afraid to admit they've been under the knife.

Robin Wright

In an interview with The Telegraph in 2014, Wright credited her youthful glow to "sprinkles" of  Botox. "Everybody f— does it," she said. "I suppose I can't say 'everybody' because I don't know for sure, but come on… It's just the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year. I think most women do 10 units, but that freezes the face and you can't move it. This is just one unit, and it's just sprinkled here and there to take the edge off."

Lisa Kudrow

The Friends star admitted she had a nose job at the age of 16 in an interview with The Saturday Evening Post. "I went from, in my mind, hideous, to not hideous. I did it the summer before going to a new high school," she said. "So there were plenty of people who wouldn't know how hideous I looked before. That was a good, good, good change."

Sarah, Duchess of York

In an October 2019 interview with Femail, Duchess Sarah Ferguson discussed undergoing multiple cosmetic procedures, including organic fillers, vitamin injections, and a non-surgical 'thread' facelift. She also opened up about having Botox in the past, but that the popular procedure wasn't right for her, saying: "I don't like the frozen look. I'm so animated and I like to be myself. I don't like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy—I'm really happy to be open about what I've had done."

Anna Faris

Faris had breast implants in a decision even she didn't see coming. "I was always a negative-A cup, so when I was 30, I was getting a divorce, 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. It was f-cking awesome," she told Women's Health magazine. "I never, ever thought I'd do something like that. I always thought plastic surgery was caving in to 'the man,' you know? It came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini."

Tyra Banks

In her book, Banks revealed she had a nose job in the interest of promoting women not judging one another for cosmetic enhancement. "I had bones in my nose that were growing and itching," she wrote. "I could breathe fine, but I added cosmetic surgery. I admit it! Fake hair, and I did my nose. I feel I have a responsibility to tell the truth."

Nicole Kidman

When it comes to Botox, Kidman had similar feelings to Gwyneth Paltrow. "I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again," she told Huffington Post.

Chrissy Teigen

The always-candid model told Byrdie that she'd had her forehead, nose and lips done, saying: "Everything about me is fake except my cheeks. Fake, fake, fake."

Christie Brinkley

Speaking to PEOPLE, Brinkley recently opened up about her decision have non-invasive procedures on her frown lines, neck and décolletage. "I'm almost 64, at a certain point, you might need a little something extra," she said. "If you can have something done to feel more confident and better about yourself, then you feel like your face matches your spirit—and my spirit is enthusiastic and energetic."

Jen Atkin

Kim Kardashian's hair stylist and founder of Ouai hair care products, Jen Atkin, recently opened up about her nose job on Instagram. While wishing Nicole Richie a happy birthday she said, "Thank you for loving me thru my old nose and eyebrow plucking phase." She's also shared snaps of her pre-surgery face on her Instagram account.

"Nose were the days," Atkin captioned this throwback shot of her before-and-after surgery transformation.

Jesinta Franklin

Model Jesinta Franklin has spoken openly about her breast augmentation surgery, which she had done when she was a teenager. "My message to all women is to make an educated decision when it comes to any cosmetic procedure," she told Now to Love. "It's a very personal choice and there are lots of things to take into consideration before moving forward."

Victoria Beckham

In 2014, Beckham told Allure magazine that while she once had breast implants, they've since been removed. She said she decided to revert back to her original size after seeing a picture where her breast were "up around" her "neck".
