Julie Chen got plastic surgery to fit in
Julie Chen was time and again made feel inferior because of her Chinese appearance. She experienced it for the first time while working at a local news station in Ohio. Chen had put forth a suggestion of filling in for some of her colleagues from the anchor desk in their absence.
The comments left her heart broken. She was told that her eyes could possibly leave the audience bored and that she was not relatable to the community she was serving. In a nutshell, she was told she could never be an anchor because she was Chinese!
Even after her work in different news channels, the comments on her appearance were still similar. It was her agent who suggested her to widen her eyes through surgery, as it had become too difficult for him to find the type of work she was looking for. After she was convinced of going through a surgery, she had to convince her family. Her family threatened to disown her if she got it done.
Julie finally got it done and her eyes look beautiful on camera today. Chen explains having her eyes widened doesn’t make her less Chinese and she’s proud of her heritage. Many presume that she has undergone a nose job too looking at her now and then pictures but no confirmation has been made from Julie’s side.
