Did you always want to become a doctor?

Oh yes! I knew I was going to be a doctor as early as four years old.

Define your style.

My biggest fashion weaknesses are bags and jewelry shoes. I usually choose a jewelry piece for the day, and my whole outfit has to match that particular piece.

Your beauty secrets?


REVLONMatte powder blush

1. Never expose yourself to too much sun to avoid wrinkles. Don’t smoke. Minimize drinking. Stay slim and fit by exercising. As you get older, try not to lose too much weight too fast, because wrinkles start to show. Drink lots of water. Wash all traces of makeup before going to bed. Sleep. Maintain a healthy mindset and try to keep a positive outlook. Apply Retin-A nightly to help reduce wrinkles.

Your beauty regimen?

Neutrogena Mask and Retin-A

What are your thoughts on plastic/cosmetic surgery?

It should be done to enhance your features and not make you look grotesque. But if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Some of our movie stars are so beautiful already, but after having surgery they look stiff and obviously “done.” I will probably need some help from my husband in a few years, but right now, we both think I don’t need it yet.
