Denise Richards: I Had Three Boob Jobs

Denise Richards was on Howard Stern Wednesday morning and for the first time opened up about her three boob jobs.

The former Bond girl, ex-wife of Charlie Sheen and flailing reality star told Stern about her chest to warn other girls not to get them done, despite having a career based largely on her comely looks.

"They're natural on the outside. I've never talked about it but I'll talk about it with you because I can't lie to you."

She went on to explain that she had them done three times to get them done right, starting when she was a teenager.

"I was 19, and my roommate had the best boobs ever, and she had just had hers done," Richards told Stern. "I was flat as a board, and I thought 'Whoa, you can just buy them' and stupidly had them done!"

But the first ones were not right and looked "way too big for my body."

So she had a second ones put in. "The next guy put bigger ones in, and it was not good -- they were a D!"

But the third pair, apparently, were just right and she has overcome her youthful mistakes.

"I was young and should have researched better. You know, it was a big mistake. Young girls, don't do it!"
