File Under: Interviewers Ask the Darndest Things

kightlinger.jpg Reading a recent interview in Metrosource with comedian Laura Kightlinger, creator and star of the series “The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman,”I came across this ridiculous question.

I recently saw you on an episode of Tenacious D from 1999 – it looks like you haven’t aged a day. What’s your secret?
I like to think I’ve been kind of preserved in disappointment. It keeps me young.

Er, right, that and a crazy amount of plastic surgery! Elephant. In. The. Room. Let’s be honest and call a spade a scalpel. The woman could double for Cher.

This takes nothing away from her um, accomplishments, I’ve enjoyed Kightlinger since her stand-up days and think she’s a vastly talented writer and performer. She’s under no obligation to confess the obvious.

But if your the interviewer and you’re digging for dirt, hoping she’ll fess up to going under the knife, why pose the question in that manner?

    Holy shit! i can’t believe how chopped up her face looks! esp her michael jackson nose! she looks really awful!!! i want her old face back, dammit!

    she’s still super funny, though :)

    I know! I blame Hollywood and her breakup with Jack Black. Still funny though, agreed.

    Laura Kightlinger has not had plastic surgery. She had JAW surgery and SKULL surgery because – if you’ll bear with a non-expert description – her bones were not joined properly and her jaw was drifting out of alignment, causing her excruciating headaches. If you’ve seen her standup, she does a hilarious bit about her multiple (and still ongoing) procedures featuring giant projections of her medical x-rays.
