Country legend Dolly Parton was interviewed on Access Hollywood yesterday. When asked what she thought of 23 year-old reality star Heidi Montag’s extensive plastic surgery, she said with typical frankness “I’d probably have done it at that age. If I could afford it and thought I’d needed it.” It’s obvious that Parton has had a lot of work done on her face (she told Oprah in 2003 “If I have one more facelift, I’ll have a beard!”) but I always assumed her famous boobs were hers. She was blessed with large natural boobs but she also had a lift as well as implants and she’ll tell you about it.
“When you saw somebody like a Heidi Montag, at the age of 23, getting ten procedures in one day, did you ever think, ‘Oh my gosh! This is hitting the girls way too young?’” Shaun asked.
“Oh, I would have probably done it when I was that age if I could have afforded it and thought I needed it,” Dolly said.
There was no judgment coming from Dolly who is as open as it gets when it comes to going under the knife.
“I think that’s one of the things that people like about you, is that you are so honest about everything,” Shaun said.
“Well, people want to know,” Dolly said. “If you ask me about it, I’d rather tell you…. I’d rather you think I had plastic surgery than to think I was a liar.”…
“Who will play Dolly in the big screen version?” Shaun asked.
“I don’t know that yet,” Dolly said. “We’re kind of looking, but we need to go back to that plastic surgery thing. We’ll have to get a girl that can get her a really big ol’ boob job won’t we now?!”

Dolly is awesome, but she’s 64 and she does look kind of freakish. Honestly I thought she was older because she has that plastic surgery mask that automatically ages a person. There are ways to get plastic surgery and look refreshed without looking entirely fake, but Parton loves her over-the-top look and she’s sticking with it. Dolly is promoting a new memorabilia store in Nashville called “Dolly Parton’s Trinkets And Treasures.” There were plenty of people at the grand opening dressed up like her, and she joked that “I’m easy to do. Cheap wig, cheap bra, push up bra… And lots of makeup.”
