Debra Messing isn’t ashamed to admit she’s undergone procedures to shift belly fat.
The actress, perhaps best known for playing Grace Adler on NBC sitcom Will & Grace, always looks super chic on the red carpet in designer ensembles.
While many celebrities remain tight-lipped about their decisions to undergoing cosmetic procedures prior to events, Debra is very open about her choice to try some non-invasive options.
“It’s incredibly important to be open about doing things to improve how you feel about yourself,” she told GoodHousekeeping.com. “The myth that there are people walking around Hollywood who were born perfect and age perfectly is very dangerous, especially for young girls. I’m not embarrassed at all.”
Debra, who shares son Roman, 13, with her ex-husband Daniel Zelman, is a champion of CoolSculpting, and became a brand ambassador for the company earlier this year (17). Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting is a fat-freezing treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.
“I gave birth. I had a little pouch on my stomach that wouldn’t go away. We have hormones. Things happen. Things move,” the 49-year-old shared. “And I’m lazy! I don’t wanna do sit-ups for four hours a day. I’m a single mom and I work full-time.”
Meanwhile, Debra also discussed her decision to dye her naturally brown hair auburn when she was first starting out in Hollywood. The star was required to change her locks for her film debut in 1995’s A Walk in the Clouds, and she loved the look so much that she’s never gone back.
“I had been auditioning for a year as a brunette and all of a sudden, when I turned red, I started getting jobs. And that’s when I said, ‘I’m gonna stay a redhead,'” she smiled.
