Courtney Love Criticizes Women Who Have Plastic Surgery & Fails To See The Irony

It's pretty safe to say that Courtney Love has never been a predictable Hollywood star. (Madonna and Kurt Loder alone can certainly attest to that). If you had told fans 15 or 20 years ago that the no-holds-barred rock star/actress would someday be telling Harper's Bazaar that she loves yoga, juicing with her NutriBullet, and being the self-proclaimed "male doppelgänger" of Sean Penn, they may have ripped their Hole patches right off their backpacks.

But again, there's just no telling what to expect with Love. In her interview for the August 2015 issue, on stands July 21, Love talks about everything from her beauty regimens and her love of Victoria Beckham's dresses to her desire to lose weight after a cover shoot. But perhaps most telling is that Love, who recently turned 51, claims she wants to "be in that club" of "older" women in Hollywood who age gracefully.

As she puts it, "There are a lot of wonderful actresses who are getting older and look fantastic… To me, aging gracefully is to let it happen and accept." Hey, we couldn't agree more! She continues, "In my experience, fighting it always seems to backfire and make people look ridiculous. You see actresses get work done and it makes them unrecognizable." Okay, now she's lost us. Not only has Love proudly talked about having plastic surgery herself (including a nose job, which she admitted changed her whole world), but, hell, she's even written songs about the unfair standards set for women in her industry.

Love definitely isn't wrong when she says that women "like Diane Keaton, who has never had anything done" are really cool and sexy. But to bring other female stars down a rung for getting the plastic surgery almost demanded of them by their industry is unfair. Yes, Love is lucky that she's had successful plastic surgery that hasn't made her unrecognizable, but why not have compassion toward the women in Hollywood who did it for the sake of their career only to have it, as she puts it, "backfire"? Love has spent so much of her time in the spotlight inspiring women to be their badass selves, and honestly, if she can continue doing that as she ages, that would be her best look of all.
