Martha Stewart Revealed What Cosmetic Work She's Had Done After Making History With Her Sports Illustrated Cover

    "It’s not true. I’ve had absolutely no plastic surgery whatsoever."

    8. You may have noticed that Martha Stewart made history earlier this week as the oldest cover model in Sports Illustrated's history.

    7. The 81-year-old announced her cover on Instagram along with the caption, "My motto has always been: 'When you’re through changing, you’re through,' so I thought, why not be up for this opportunity of a lifetime? I hope this cover inspires you to challenge yourself to try new things, no matter what stage of life you are in."

    6. When asked by Variety about the reactions she's received on social media to the photos, Martha responded, "They’re very good. There are only a few naysayers saying, 'The pictures are over-retouched.' But they’re not. They are incredibly accurate pictures. I was really pleased that there was not much airbrushing."

    5. When asked specifically about comments that claimed that she only looked good because she'd had "work done," Martha continued, "Well, it’s not true. I’ve had absolutely no plastic surgery whatsoever."

    4. "I have very healthy, good hair. I drink green juice every day. I take my vitamins. I eat very healthfully. I have very good skin doctors. I’m very careful in the sun. I wear hats and I wear sunblock every single day."

    3. That isn't to say that Martha hasn't had any work done. "Every now and then there are certain fillers that I can do for a little line here or there, but I hate Botox. It’s a weird thing for me. I really and truly don’t do a lot," she added.

    2. Martha previously told People in 2020, "I work primarily with two very excellent dermatologists, who are very conservative about anything that they would do to my face. A little Juvéderm injections here or there every now and then, maybe twice a year, and that’s basically the skin treatments that I get. I’ve never had a face-lift. [...] And genetics has a lot to do with it. My dad was a gorgeous man with very good skin. So was Mom."
