Channing Tatum: "I Wouldn't Mind Being The Male Jennifer Lawrence"

Channing Tatum speaks openly about his marriage and other subjects in the July issue of Cosmopolitan.

"I wouldn't mind being the male Jennifer Lawrence," Tatum, 33, was quoted as saying, adding: "I think she's incredibly cool."

As for fans who idolize Tatum already, he admits that he is not always so attractive.

Tatum revealed: "I'm a fat kid on the inside. I love food so much, and I fluctuate about 25-30 pounds between movies."

Tatum continued: "I feel like I have to do a chess movie that requires very little movement at some point, just so I can eat pizza and play chess on the beach all day. And then eat more pizza and cheeseburgers and drink beer. That'd be amazing. I'd give anything for that. I gotta figure that movie out."

Asked for the "secret" to staying with Jenna Dewan (now his wife) for nearly eight years, Tatum replied: "You want to want it. Jenna's and my thing is checking in with each other all the time, like: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how much do you love me right now?""

"And you gotta be honest, and you've got to want an honest answer," Tatum concluded.

Carrie Fisher Plastic Surgery

American actress, novelist, screenwriter and performance artist Carrie Fisher, best known for her portrayal of Princess Leia in the original "Star Wars" trilogy, is rumored to have had plastic surgery to improve her image.  

Fisher, 56, is speculated to have had botox injections, facelift, neck lift, dermal fillers like Restylane, eye lift and even earlobe surgery!

According to reports, Fisher recently lost 50 pounds in a bid to fit back into the notorious gold bikini, but after her weight loss and appearance on national television,  many viewers weren't looking at her new body, but what seemed to be a new face as well.

It seems that fillers like Restylane were placed in her lip and cheeks. Her eyes seem very pulled, an indication of an over zealous eye lift. Her fuller face that debuted with her thinner body is likely a result of also getting Botox injections to smooth out her forehead, the space between her eyes and crow's feet.

Some entertainment blogs have talked about the possibility of her undergoing a mini face lift operation, mainly focusing around the eyes, which appear to be pulled a little tight in these pictures…

The question is: "What plastic surgeon experts believe about Carrie Fisher's plastic surgery?"

Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer was quoted as saying: "It does look like Carrie Fisher has had a face, neck and eyelid lift. Her neck and jaw line appear tighter and smoother. Her eye lids are more obvious and appear slightly over done."

"Carrie Fisher has lost a lot of weight and it was becoming apparent in her face. She has a rejuvenated look now and appears to have had a facelift, eyelid lift (Blepharoplasty), dermal fillers to her lips and cheeks and Botox to her forehead. She looks good and much more youthful," Dr. Michael Salzhauer explained.

Celebrity plastic surgeon in New York City Dr. David Shafer revealed: "If anything, it looks like a combination of fillers and Botox. If she had a facelift, I think she could have had a much nicer result."

Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California stated: "Carrie Fisher appears to have had a minimally invasive facelift, Botox, facial fillers, and possibly a browlift. Overall, her look is natural and any work appears to have been performed conservatively."

Dr. Vince Afsahi, a dermatologist in Newport Beach and Tustin and a clinical assistant professor of dermatology at USC, notices signs of cosmetic surgery: "Her lips look plumped a bit, perhaps with a filler such as Juvederm. Her laugh lines and marrionette lines appear softened as well. The jowel area is reduced, perhaps with being pulled a bit with a face lift. Overall her skin appears even in texture and tone, which is often the result of fractional CO2 (laser) resurfacing. Don't forget that the right make up and hair can do wonders!"

Dr. John Di Saia, a plastic surgeon in San Clemente, believes that Fisher probably had a nose job in "the distant past."

"More recently she looks (facically) a bit on the puffy side so I'll surmise that fillers have had something to do with this. Her facial movements are a bit weak and not even so likely she has added some Botulinum toxin. She seems a good example of how people can look at bit tweaked when fillers and Botox are used to excess. Too much plastics whether it be surgery or the non-surgical alternatives can make people look freaky,"  Dr. John Di Saia noted.

Dr. Lorrie Klein, a dermatologist in Laguna Niguel notices signs of fillers, too, or possibly even cheek implants. "Her eyebrows appear very low so she may have had her forehead treated with Botox which relaxed it so much that she can't hold her eyebrows up or perhaps she needs a surgical brow lift or some Botox injected under her eyebrows to achieve a  "Botox brow lift,"" Dr. Klein explained.

Dr. Edward Jonas Domanskis, a plastic surgeon in Newport Beach thinks Fisher had a facelift about 5-7 years ago, as well as a nose job years earlier. "If she wanted to look the best she could at this time, then I would recommend a repeat facelift and possibly a small incision(endoscopic) forehead lift. Also, she is an excellent candidate for a fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing of her face, neck and décolletage, which would limit her "down" time to about 10 days. I would also recommend that she have her earlobes reduced," Dr. Domanskis advised.

Michigan-based plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn was quoted as saying: "Has she had a facelift? Not recently, unless it was a pretty crappy one. Her neck has some droopiness that typically is treated during a facelift. If she didn't do her homework and had one of those phony baloney lunchtime facelifts then her neck might look this way, but I'll give her the benefit of a doubt!"

Anjelica Huston Cosmetic Surgery

American actress Anjelica Huston is rumored to have had cosmetic surgery to turn back the hands of time.

Huston, 61, is speculated to have had botox injections, facelift and facial fillers like Juvederm.

Anjelica has noticeably smooth skin and only a few fine lines and crow's feet around her  eyes for a woman her age. In fact, the skin around her eyes, jaw line and forehead are dramatically tightened! On the other hand, Huston's plastic surgeon seems to have forgotten her neck…As you can notice from the pictures, the result is pretty weird and even creepy!

Judging by the before and after photos, her cheeks appear now fuller than when she was younger.

It has to be mentioned that Huston turned heads and criticized harshly (she was called by many media outlets: "The latest pillow face victim in Hollywood" because of her suspiciously plump cheeks) on January 2013 when she appeared at a press conference for her television show "Smash" in Pasadena, California.

Anjelica Huston has opened up about cosmetic surgery including botox and collagen injections

"I went to a doctor who said: "Angelica, we have this wonderful new thing, it's called Botox," Huston was quoted as saying, adding: "He took a huge needle and plunged it into my third eye. The pain was something inexplicable. I gasped, I writhed and when I came to, I had a headache that lasted four days. A serious one."

After that, Huston sworn off cosmetic surgery, but still she is rumored to have had work done on her cheeks and chin.

Plastic surgeons speculate that Huston has likely had tried fillers like Juvederm. Her doctor's mistake was to have overdone the fillers.
