Minka Kelly Told to Have a Boob Job

Minka Kelly Was Told She Would Need Fake Boobs to Make It

She's set to hit our screens as Eve French in the hotly-anticipated remake of TV classic Charlie's Angels and could have easily passed for her younger co-star Leighton Meester when they were filmed The Roommate together, but that doesn't mean that Minka Kelly escaped the pressures of Hollywood — once being told that she wouldn't make it unless she plastic surgery. The 31-year-old actress told host David Letterman on The Late Show that the offer came from a Playboy Playmate who wanted to manage her:

"She said that she could get me a job at this doctor's office in return for plastic surgery, which I would need to be a Playboy Playmate. All I needed was lipo, fake breasts, a few veneers and all kinds of stuff. When I told her that I didn't want that, she said I would never be Playmate of the Year and I said, 'I think that's OK. I'm OK with that.'"

We're glad that Minka stuck to her guns — it's clearly paid off. But do you find it sad that the pressure is still put on many young women to have plastic surgery in order to be successful or is it just something they have to deal with if they're getting into that industry?
