Cynthia Nixon laughs off breast-enhancement surgery reports

New York, June 23 (ANI): Actress Cynthia Nixon has laughed off reports that she has undergone breast-enhancement surgery.

The Sex and the City star insists that the story is totally false.

“I was at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital for my ‘three-monthly’ checkup,” the New York Daily News quoted Nixon, a breast-cancer survivor, as saying.

“I was in the Oncology Department. I guess they think that means ‘plastic surgery.’

“We got a call from [the Post] asking if I’d had breast augmentation, and my publicist laughed at them and said, ‘No, of course not.’ But they printed it anyway. If I was going to get a boob job, wouldn’t it make sense that I’d get it before ‘Sex and the City’?

“Yes, I had breast cancer, but I had a lumpectomy. Some women have reconstructive surgery, but mine did not merit that.

“The story was totally false. It would be annoying and disheartening in any case, but particularly because I’ve been so open about my breast cancer,” she added.

Meanwhile, the 42-year-old star admits that she does not mind all the media attention, as she can communicate to women scared of getting mammograms.

“I can get the message out to women who are scared or lackadaisical about getting mammograms. A totally routine mammogram found mine, and if you catch it early there’s a 98 per cent survival rate,” she said.

Nixon and partner Christine Marinoni, now a stay-at-home mom to Nixon’s two kids, have decided not to go to California to get married.

“In an ideal world, we’d like to do it in New York, when it becomes legalized. Hopefully, it won’t take 20 years.” (ANI)
