MACKENZIE PHILLIPS: NO PLASTIC SURGERY SAVED HER CAREER
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Mackenzie Phillips believes if she had gone Hollywood with her looks, she wouldn't be a working actress.
Phillips plays a drug-addicted inmate on "Orange Is The New Black." She says if she had had plastic surgery, she never would have been hired for the role.
Even though she's had her own struggles with addiction, Phillips is not bothered by playing the role of an addict. She says she's "absolutely filled with the deepest gratitude that I don't live that way."
