A woman underwent six surgeries in order to make herself look more like Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence, spending upwards of $25,000 in the process.
According to ABC's Nightline, a Texan woman identified as "Kitty" said she appreciates Lawrence's "spunky and fun" personality and called the actress' body "banging." Which is obviously enough of a reason to undergo major surgery to look like a person!
A 30-year-old dog trainer, a wife and mother to a 5-year-old daughter, Kitty embarked on a four-week odyssey in February at First Surgical Hospital in Houston, Texas.
Kitty underwent $25,000 worth of surgeries — minus a discount from the doctor for appearing on television — which included liposuction to her face and body, a breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and fat grafts to her cheeks and buttocks. The entire procedure took six hours and her recovery took a several weeks.
Kitty says that over the last few years, the more famous Jennifer Lawrence has become, the more she has heard from friends and strangers about her resemblance to the actress.
"I am a strong woman...I am in charge of how I look and I can change that and then change that again if I want," she said. "I'm not trying to look like Pamela Anderson here during her 'Baywatch' days. I'm trying to look like a very capable, very personal level-headed female who is an Academy Award winner."
Hey, whatever makes you happy.
For those wondering about Kitty's psychiatric well being (or for those just screaming "GURL ARE YOU CRAZY??" through sips of chardonnay as they read this) Dr. Franklin Rose of Utopia Plastic Surgery in Houston and Kitty's surgeon said stop irrationally judging strangers you read about on the Internet, OK? No, actually what he said was yes, he monitors the mental health of patients who want to do such drastic procedures.
"By this point in my career, after evaluating 14-15,000 new consultations, you can tell very quickly within a matter of a minute if the patient is well adjusted or not well adjusted for whatever the procedure they might present," he told Nightline.
Kitty met with Dr. Rose and said she "went in and said 'this person resembles me so much, Jennifer Lawrence looks like me but look I like this more about her face, I like this more about her body and can I get these upgrades.'"
Her motivation to get surgery was also fueled by motherhood, "the reason why I decided to get surgery is because post having my daughter, I wasn't quite as comfortable with my body," she said. "I don't think you have to be crazy to want to look better or feel better about yourself. That's not crazy."
Even though it was an expensive undertaking, Kitty said it was worth it. While she acknowledged it was money that could have gone to a college fund for her daughter, she said time was on her side. "Basically the money that I had for this was money that I had saved from previous job ... so it was sort of a 'me fund,'" Kitty said. "My child's only five and I'm still just barely 30 so I think I still feel like maybe it's naiveté but I still have some time to rack up some money to help her when the time comes."
She told Nightline she was ecstatic with the results, despite being so expensive.
I guess I'll be the first Mean Girl to say I don't think she looks much like Lawrence. *DUCKS FOR COVER* That's a whole lot of $25,000 to spend on surgery to not look like a famous person. But, again, if she's happy what the hell does it matter.
Side note: If you told me for $25,000, I could look like Angelina Jolie, you better believe I would sell everything I owned and race to the hospital. But ONLY if it was this version of Angelina:
YES I WANT THE WINGS AND THE CHEEKBONES. ALL OF IT.
