London - Former supermodel Jerry Hall has criticised women who have plastic surgery, branding them monsters.

The tall Texan, who was married to Mick Jagger for nine years, spoke out on an American TV documentary.

Ms Hall, 56, said: “I think it is bad that we have as role models people who are scary to small children. I’m definitely not going to have plastic surgery. I think it s a sickness. I see people who have had work done and I don t even recognise them. They re like monsters, scary!”

The 90-minute programme, which will be screened in the UK this autumn, features veteran supermodels such as Hall, Christie Brinkley and Christy Turlington talking about the dangers of drugs, eating disorders and the pressures to stay young-looking in an industry obsessed by youth.

Ms Hall denounced women who go under the knife, saying: “They are cutting up their faces. They are doing all these strange things.

“They take fat from their bottoms and put it in their lips so that when you kiss them you are kissing their bottom that is so disgusting.

“If a man asks you to have plastic surgery, he doesn’t want you, he wants a trophy.” - Daily Mail
