If a female movie star, driven crazy by all demands and expectations, does go ahead and under the knife or other assorted tortures to pump up and fill all there is to fill, the same vicious attack by the cruel Hollywood hounds is launched like a weapon.

In an effort to better understand the reality of how distant Barbie is from the average woman, I created a parody featuring what her breasts might look like at her current age of 55-years-old. It's a sad, sad truth but as women age, their breasts go south.

Please repeat after me: it is never OK to publicly say an unkind thing about another human being's face. If you want women in Hollywood to stop getting plastic surgery, maybe you should just stop saying negative things about their appearance, period.
