Melanie Griffith doesn’t try to hide recent face scar as her achromatic look and slim figure grabs eyeballs
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Melanie Griffith appeared in good spirits while being out in Los Angeles on Monday, January 16. The veteran actress was seen with a friend while carrying chic look. This came just a few days after she was spotted with a scar on her face’s left side.
During the recent lunch outing also, the scar seemed to be there but her ripped figure took away all the attention. The 65-year-old star chose a gray turtleneck and skintight black leggings with mesh panels for the day, which she paired with black sneakers, black cat-eye frames, and a black and white patterned Bandolier crossbody phone case.
For the jewelry and other accessories, Griffith kept minimal with a pair of diamond studs and a black baseball cap. She and her friend were captured smiling and laughing as they basked in the Los Angeles sun. However, on Friday, January 13, the ‘Working Girl’ actress left her fans worried after a stitch mark was seen on her face.
Griffith has not spoken about it yet but years ago, when she was frequently seen with a bandaid on her nose, she let her fans know the truth behind it. In an Instagram share that came with a close-up of her face, she wrote, “Bandaged again after having dermabrasion, the final step to fix the now removed basil cell skin cancer. If any of you have it, get it fixed. If you lay in the sun, are exposed to lots of sun, be CAREFUL. Use sunscreen. Get checked out by your dermatologist. If you don’t have one, get one, or go to your nearest clinic and ask to be tested for it.”
The post attracted a lot of support comments for her as a fan said, “You posted this ages ago, but it touched me then …now I am going through the same thing mohs surgeries, now dermabrasion, thanks for sharing your story. It helps knowing others successfully and gracefully have gone through it.”
Another fan wrote, “Oh honey!! You are a brave Warrior!! Thank you for sharing this!! Had no idea! Will only share you kind advice, not your name. Too personal. Praying for you!! Love ya Melanie!!!!!” Besides, the ‘Lolita’ star spoke with InStyle and shared, “It’s a scary thing when you’re an actress and you depend on your face for work. But I realize I have to put a Band-Aid on it, and it’s fine. I just look like a dork.”
She also addressed the challenges of aging and changing face as she stated, “I think that theater is kinder on a 60-year-old face. It’s a different deal when you’re older. And we’re old. I don’t mean it badly, and I don’t mean it like, ‘Oh, poor me,’ or anything like that. It’s just a different deal when you’re an older person. It’s different from being the hot stuff to being the old hot stuff.” In 2012, Griffith told Today, “Most people are telling me I look horrible. The tweets I get are really nasty,” before adding, “I don't know if I look that great. [But] I work out a lot. I have a trainer that I [work with] four times a week, and I do hot yoga.”
