JENNIFER LOPEZ HAS NEVER HAD BOTOX – (12/03/2020)
Jennifer Lopez claims she’s never had Botox, even though an ex-boyfriend encouraged her to get injections.
J.Lo told Elle that when she was in her early twenties, a dermatologist encouraged her to get Botox and her then-boyfriend told her to give it a try.
Nearly three decades later she tells the website, “I just wonder what would’ve happened to me if I would’ve started Botox at 23, what I would look like right now. My face would be totally different today.
Rather than leaning on injectables and plastic surgery, Lopez swears that using sunscreen every day has allowed her to maintain her youthful appearance.
JOHN MULANEY INVESTIGATED: John Mulaney was investigated by the Secret Service after he hosted Saturday Night Live, he says on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The comedian dubbed the presidential election an “elderly man contest” and argued that no matter who ended up winning, “nothing much will change in the United States.” He got serious blowback, but the joke about Julius Caesar being a powerful maniac who deserved to be stabbed to death earned him an investigation by the Secret Service. “I guess they opened a file on me because of the joke, and I have to say: Am I stoked there’s a file open on me? Absolutely. Did I enjoy it in the moment? Not so much,” he told Kimmel. Mulaney has since been cleared by the Secret Service.
