Denise Richards is famous for her sex appeal, but the mom-of-three wishes she hadn’t surgically altered her body. Richards wrote about her youthful misstep for iVillage.
“At 19 when I first got my breasts done, I wish that I was confident enough with my body to not have had surgery,” Richards writes in her blog entry on parenting. “That is something that I really want to encourage in my daughters, to embrace their healthy bodies and have confidence.”
The 40-year-old actress notes that she’s been open about having had several breast augmentation surgeries. She adds, “That's all I've had done and all that I plan to do.”
Richards, who writes of struggling to promote a healthy body image for her girls “in a business where looks and weight do matter," has two daughters with ex Charlie Sheen – Sam, 7, and Lola, 6 – and an adopted baby girl, Eloise.
