She spoke to the Daily Telegraph about her longtime habit of going under the knife:
“Every weekend I just go in and I do something new. I get a 10th one free. It’s a little like coffee you just keep going.”
On her concerned friends:
“They all said, ‘You shouldn’t do it, you shouldn’t do it.’ And I said, ‘What if I pay for everybody in this room? What would you do?’ Every single person (accepted).”
On her decision not to get a tattoo for her 78th birthday:
“I ended up not getting it because they put you in a room with mirrors and I was putting it on my ass and I took a look and I just got so depressed. I said, ‘Cover this right up,’ but my friend got a tattoo. I’m very proud of her. Maybe my 79th, I’ll put a recipe on, at this age what do you put on? You put a recipe!”
