It’s amazing to see child stars grow up and witness their journey in life. Some fade away quickly after their initial success, while others continue to shine. Melissa Gilbert, known for her iconic role as Laura Ingalls Wilder in “Little House on the Prairie,” falls into the latter category.
Melissa’s journey began when she joined the cast of the hit show at the age of nine. Little did she know that it would catapult her into stardom and global recognition. Growing up on set, Melissa cherished her time on “Little House on the Prairie” and considered it a delightful and amazing environment to grow as a child performer.
Her success did not end with the show. Melissa went on to star in other television films, serve as the President of the Screen Actors Guild, compete on “Dancing with the Stars,” and even run for Congress.
However, in recent years, the now 58-year-old actress decided to trade the glamour of Hollywood for a peaceful life in the Catskills, New York. She sought serenity, tranquility, and a chance for deeper contemplation.
Upon moving to her new home, Melissa faced the challenge of renovating an old house that had been uninhabited for years. Despite the initial difficulties, she saw the potential for something truly special. With determination and hard work, she transformed the house into a place of beauty and serenity.
But Melissa’s journey hasn’t only been about transforming houses. Like many in the entertainment industry, she felt the pressure to defy the aging process. Over the years, she tried various cosmetic procedures, including Botox, fillers, and breast implants. However, she eventually realized that these procedures were changing her into someone she didn’t recognize, someone who wasn’t truly herself.
In 2015, Melissa made a bold decision and had her breast implants removed. She also stopped getting Botox and other cosmetic procedures. It was a turning point for her, as she began to embrace her natural self and appreciate the changes that come with age. Melissa said that removing the implants and embracing her natural appearance was one of the smartest decisions she ever made.
At Newsner, we believe that everyone should feel comfortable in their own skin, regardless of their age or appearance. We applaud Melissa Gilbert for choosing to age naturally and embrace her true self.
