Kelly Ripa has made a Botox admission surprising many of her fans; the talk show host has admitted that she uses injections to keep her skin from sagging.
The 42 year old was not shy about revealing the secret to maintaining her youthful looks. In a recent interview with Elle, she admitted that she regularly receives injections, including Botox, and that it all goes to helping her skin not sag, according to Radar Online.
Ripa has always adamantly denied ever going under the knife to maintain her looks, however, she has now openly admitted to receiving less invasive help through the injections.
Speaking to Elle, she also explained how she received Botox injections in her armpits, as well as her face regularly.
She said, "Every seven months or so my eyelid skin rests on my eyelashes. So I feel like it makes my makeup artist's life easier, and it makes my eyes look a little more open on TV, which is where I happen to work right now."
Ripa played Hayley Vaughan on the television soap opera All My Children from 1990 through 2002, and is best known as co-host of the popular syndicated morning talk show Live! with Kelly and Michael.
She is also well-known for her role as Faith Fairfield on Hope & Faith.
Despite being better known for her roles on television, Ripa also has several feature films to her credit. She appeared in the acclaimed Miramax feature Marvin's Room in 1996, which also co-starred Meryl Streep and Leonardo DiCaprio.
In 1999, she won the Best Actress Award at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival for her work in The Stand-In.
More recently, she was part of the voice cast of the computer-generated animated feature Fly Me to the Moon.
