New boobs meant a new chapter ten years ago for Naya Rivera.
The former Glee star talks about her decision to get plastic surgery at 18 in her new book, Sorry Not Sorry.
In an excerpt featured in this week’s issue of People Magazine, Rivera explained that getting implants was more for herself than anyone else.
“My new boobs were a confidence thing, not a sexual thing,” Rivera wrote, noting that she paid for the surgery with money saved up from acting gigs.
“I went around to all my teachers, told them I was going to be out. ‘I’m getting plastic surgery!’ I’d tell them gleefully,” Rivera continued.
“My art teacher was stoked – when I told her she said that she too had fake tits and that she was very excited for me.”
Once the surgery was over and she was healed, Rivera noticed that she was getting a lot more attention, and she was totally OK with it.
“I’d never even taken my top off for a guy,” Rivera explained. “I hadn’t had many opportunities to do so, but even if I had, my bra was always stuffed with napkins.”
“As soon as I went back to school, [the boys]all practically fell over themselves rushing to see who could hold the door open for me.”
Even though her parents didn’t want her getting fake boobs, Rivera has absolutely no regrets.
“People have a lot of opinions about plastic surgery, but more than ten years after I got my boobs, they still make me happy when I look in the mirror. It might have even been the best $8K I’ve ever spent.”
Rivera also reveals that she had an abortion while starring on Glee, and that she’s battled anorexia.
I’ve done a lot of living,” Rivera said, according to People.
“I’m a 79-year-old trapped in a 29-year-old’s body.”
