I was born Irish. So f–k off losers.” Yikes.

Ashley Judd sparked plastic surgery rumors in early 2012. But the actress took on the accusations face-first by writing an article for The Daily Beast. ” When I am sick for more than a month and on medication (multiple rounds of steroids), the accusation is that because my face looks puffy, I have ‘clearly had work done,’ with otherwise credible reporters with great bravado ‘identifying’ precisely the procedures I allegedly have had done,” she wrote.
Paris Hilton has vehemently denied getting any plastic surgery or using fillers over the years. The star credits her appearance on her religious use of skincare.
