The Daily Shuffle: Minka Kelly Declined Playboy’s Free Plastic Surgery

ALTThere’s a lot of pressure for actresses in Hollywood to look up to snuff and it’s no a surprise when someone goes under the knife to make it happen. Even a gorgeous woman like Minka Kelly has experienced the allure of plastic surgery. During an interview with David Letterman on Wednesday’s The Late Show, Kelly recounted a moment early in her career where she caught the eye of a Playboy Playmate who wanted to take the Charlie’s Angels starlett under her wing. “She said that she could get me a job at this doctor’s office in return for plastic surgery which I would need to be a Playboy Playmate.” Kelly took the job, but after finding out she needed “lipo, fake breasts, a few veneers,” she bailed. For the best. – Us Weekly

Not that we have any evidence to corroborate, but we believe Bradley Cooper when he says that “it’s easier to date famous people.” The Hangover 2 and Limitless actor admitted to Showbiz Spy that, when trying to strike up a relationship with a woman, it’s a lot easier if she already knows the ropes. “Connection and chemistry are amazing things and if the other person is used to being in the media, it makes things easier.” Since breaking up with high-profile girlfriend Renee Zellwegger back in March, Cooper’s been linked to a handful of famous faces, including Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Lopez.

Wanda Sykes is one of the funniest comedians working today, but she recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about some pretty serious personal issues. According to Sykes, after a cosmetic breast reduction procedure (“I had real big boobs… Every time I eat … Oh lord. I’d carry a Tide stick everywhere I go,”) lab work revealed that the actress had breast cancer. Realizing she wasn’t game for the lengthy treatment process, Sykes took the plunge and received a double mastectomy. “I had both breasts removed … because now I have zero chance of having breast cancer.” But in true Sykes fashion, she wrapped up her story with an uplifting, funny quip: “I was real hesitant about doing this, because I hate walking. I got a lot of [cancer] walks coming up.” – People
