Melanie Griffith regrets going overboard with plastic surgery

Washington D.C. [USA], Apr. 5 : Getting candid about her past, Melanie Griffith has opened up about her struggles with cosmetic surgery procedures, addiction and love life.

The 59-year-old actress, who is featured in the latest issue of Porter magazine, admitted that she didn't notice she had gone overboard with the plastic surgery until after everyone else in the world did, E! Online reported.

The 'Working Girl' star told the magazine, "No, I didn't [realize] until people started saying, 'Oh my god, what has she done?!' I was so hurt.

I went to a different doctor, and he started dissolving all of this s--t that this other woman doctor had put in.

Hopefully, I look more normal now." Griffith has been to rehab twice, but said she was a "total functioning mom" to her three children - Alexander Bauer, 31, Dakota Johnson, 27, and Stella Banderas, 20.

She recalled, "I wasn't like a drunk-on-the-floor, out-of-it person. I didn't do some things I probably should have done but, mostly, I was there for my kids. They had a sort of privileged gypsy life." Speaking about her ex-husband Don Johnson, with whom she shares 'Fifty Shades of Grey' star daughter Dakota, Griffith said, "The minute I met him, I had this mad f-king teenage crush on him! I fell in love immediately." The couple were married for six months in 1976 before splitting and then reconciling in 1989.

"Don was actually waiting for me when I got out of rehab. We got back together; it was the most natural, perfect, loving thing," she recalled. "Then it just sort of wasn't working. I think it's hard when you are both in the public eye, unless one of you gives up work." The actress ended up marrying Antonio Banderas in 1996 after she split from Johnson.

They were together for 18 years before divorcing in 2015. "I think part of the reason my marriage to Antonio fell apart was because I was stuck; nobody else is to blame," she explained of their split.

"It's just that I personally got stuck and I won't let that happen again, I want to enjoy life, I want to do whatever I want to do.".
