Sue Johnston Plastic Surgery
Speaking on a Q&A panel for her new show, Age Before Beauty, the 74-year-old discussed the dangers of being image-conscious and urged young people to love themselves in their natural form:
“We all live in selfie land and have fear for our kids that they’re growing up to be totally self-obsessed and looks-obsessed and the dangers that surround all that. You see girls in their twenties everywhere with their lips pumped up, it actually hurts me.”
“I think, ‘What will they do when they get to my age? Will they get there?’ This strange way they must be looking at their faces, it’s desperate and it’s so upsetting.”
‘It’s desperate and upsetting’, she continued, ‘and if this can make them take a step back and look… from the sixties onwards, it all started then. “To be thin, to be what you look like, and this weight thing, and then that led to eating disorders which haven’t improved, it’s just got worse.”
Sue also went on to say: “You’ve got to be strong. ‘Don’t think that just because you have your lips pumped up or your tits pumped up, that you’re going to be accepted and life’s going to be good. It ain’t. Life’s hard and you’ve got to learn to be strong really.”
Sue plays free spirit Ivy-Rae in Age Before Beauty, written by Poldark’s Debbie Horsfield and set in a Manchester beauty salon run by a dysfunctional bunch of sisters. She hopes that her new BBC show – which follows a dysfunctional family of sisters running a salon in Manchester – will encourage people to feel more confident in themselves and see beauty in their natural appearances.
Co-star Robson Green, 53, scheming husband Teddy in the series, also urged youngsters to avoid having plastic surgery for their looks
