Ashley Tisdale Reflects on Dealing with 'Traumatic' Criticism After Getting Nose Job
Ashley Tisdale is opening up about all the backlash she received after getting a nose job to correct a health issue over a decade ago.
In a new entry on her website Frenshe, the 35-year-old High School Musical star discussed her decision to have rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum back in 2007.
During an interview with People back in 2007, Ashley said she was having difficulty breathing and after consulting a doctor, she discovered her “septum was 80 percent deviated and that I had two small fractures on my nose.”
In her blog post, Ashley explained that “it didn’t feel like THAT big of a deal to me because the decision was based on serious health issues I was having.”
She also stressed that it was “not about changing my appearance” and that she had the surgery at the recommendation of her doctor.
After revealing she had the surgery, Ashley said she dealt with “traumatic” shaming from the public.
“Plastic surgery wasn’t culturally accepted then like it is now,” Ashley wrote. “When I got it done I was scrutinized, judged, and made to feel ashamed over my decision. I made a decision that was no one’s business (and is STILL no one’s business) and for that decision, I was constantly made to feel bad about it.”
Ashley said that she wanted to go public with the surgery because she “wanted to be honest and open about why I did it,” but felt that she couldn’t do that because of all the criticism she received.
Ashley also revealed that in a recent interview she was asked about her decision to have the surgery, which caught her “off-guard.”
“I’m choosing to look at this interview (which was a bummer) as a positive,” Ashley wrote. “It brought up a very dark time in my life. Things like having paparazzi break into my home to get the ‘first shot,’ and feeling like I let people down were the first things that came to mind. BUT I’m choosing to see this as a push to face it, write it down and finally let go.”
She concluded, “Thank you for always allowing me to be honest and vulnerable with no judgment. If only other women could approach this subject the same way, we could probably feel less shame and a lot more love.”
Now, Luca Guadagnino and Timothee Chalamet, who worked with Armie on the movie Call Me By Your Name, are teaming up for the upcoming film Bones and All. The movie is being described as a cannibal love story and it follows a woman as she “searches for the father she’s never met in an attempt to understand why she has the urge to kill and eat the people that love her.”
While Armie has no involvement with the film, people on social media are commenting on the coincidental timing of the movie being announced, plus how the two people associated with the film just recently worked with him.
