Chen addresses speculations that she underwent other cosmetic procedures to her face, saying that her team of makeup artists contributes to her current looks.
Julie Chen has denied speculations that she underwent other cosmetic surgeries on her face. The co-host of "The Talk" addressed the topic in a Wednesday, September 18 episode of the program, saying that she did not undergo other procedures to her face besides the eye job.
"For the record, I have never had a nose job," she told the audience members. "I have only had plastic surgery done to my eyes, that I've already told you about. I do not have cheek implants. I did not take out fat over here to make my cheeks look more [sculpted]. I did not have chin surgery, I did not have a nose job. These are not veneers. I have not done my teeth - I've never even had braces. These are all my real teeth. Nothing, nothing else has been done, ever."
Chen said that her nose appeared to be more narrow in recent photo, compared to a photo snap from her 20s, because of makeup. She also showed a 20-second time-lapse video of her hair and makeup process on the show.
The "Big Brother" host received some "hurtful" comments from her own community who criticized her decision to undergo eye procedure following the revelation earlier this month. In an interview with PEOPLE, Chen explained that she did not do it to look "less Chinese," but to make her eyes "more open."
"I want people to understand that there are Asians born with the crease I had surgically done to my eyes, so the goal was never to look less Asian," Chen said. "The goal was to simply have bigger eyes so the camera didn't make me look sleepy, bored, angry or disinterested in my interviews. The goal was to look, in my opinion, more alert and more interested on camera for my work/career."
