The 41-year-old actress decided to go under the knife to have her breasts enlarged 10 years ago after her divorce from first husband Ben Indra, and has admitted that she doesn’t regret the decision at all, as she feels much more confident in herself now.
Anna - who has five-year-old son Jack with her estranged second husband Chris Pratt - said: “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***ing awesome. I never, ever thought I’d do something like that.”
The ‘Scary Movie’ star was nervous to have the procedure done as she believed she was “betraying her gender” by altering her body, but is pleased with the results a decade on.
She added: “I always thought plastic surgery was caving in to ‘the man,’ you know? But it came down to a really simple thing: I wanted to fill out a bikini. What would that feel like? I’m still floored that I did it, because I am a staunch feminist. I kept thinking, Am I betraying my own gender by doing this?”
Since having surgery herself, Anna hopes being honest about the work she has had done will encourage other people to be “supportive of each other” when it comes to body altering procedures.
During an interview with Women’s Health magazine, she said: “I wish that we were more supportive of each other. I think that people should be able to do whatever they want, whether it’s getting braces, bleaching their hair, getting extensions, getting a boob job, getting vaginal surgery or getting a nose job.”
Previously, Anna admitted to have temporary lip injections to plump up her pout, but stopped the treatment after her friends told her lips were becoming too large.
She said: “One day a bunch of my friends were like, ‘Hey, Anna, your lips are getting pretty big.’ At that point, I had to wean myself off the injections. I look back at the decision to get injections as a mistake.”
