Julie Chen: I Had Plastic Surgery on Eyes to Look Less “Chinese” (VIDEO)


By Daniel Gates



Julie Chen opened up about her past decision to have plastic surgery on Wednesday’s edition of “The Talk.”


The host discussed how, as a young news reporter, she was told that she could never sit at the anchor desk “because you’re Chinese.”

Chen recounted how an agent later reiterated that she’d only be able to advance in her career if she underwent a cosmetic procedure “to make your eyes look bigger.”

She became emotional as she recalled how her parents ultimately supported her difficult choice to change her face in order to move up the ladder.
