Julie Chen, the 43-year-old host of The Talk and the CBS reality TV series Big Brother, revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 11 that she had plastic surgery to make her eyes look bigger. But it seems her plastic surgery goes beyond making her eyes look bigger. In fact, Julie Chen has had plastic surgery including a nose job, face lift and an eye lift according to celebrity plastic surgeons.

Julie Chen revealed that she chose to have plastic surgery because her “Chinese eyes” blocked her news reporting career.
“My secret dates back to—my heart is racing—it dates back to when I was 25 years old and I was working as a local news reporter in Dayton, Ohio,” she said. “I asked my news director [if] over the holidays, if anchors want to take vacations, could I fill in? And he said, ‘You will never be on this anchor desk, because you’re Chinese.'” “He said, ‘Let’s face it Julie, how relatable are you to our community? How big of an Asian community do we have in Dayton?'” she recalled. “‘On top of that, because of your Asian eyes, I’ve noticed that when you’re on camera, you look disinterested and bored.'”
The agent advised her to have plastic surgery to make her eyes look bigger, which she discussed with her parents who were very supportive.
Now Julie seems to be really confident and satisfied with her plastic surgery as she was quoted as saying,
“I have to live with every decision that I’ve made,” “And it got me to where we are today. And I’m not going to look back.”
