Yay Or Nay: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Mole Removal

December 17, 2009

Earlier this week, actress Sarah Jessica Parker ‘fessed up to David Letterman on the Late Night Show that she regrets having her “signature” mole removed.

While moles do add character to a face, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal in SJP’s case. But if Cindy Crawford would have hers removed, I would definitely object.

Before and After

So what do you ladies think? Would you ever have your beauty mark removed?

    I actually have a noticeable mole on me that i absolutely hate! But I would never remove it – it’s a part of who I am regardless of how I feel about it. I wish Sarah Jessica Parker would’ve kept it! It was character! I wish she was more comfortable with it instead of removing it! Just my opinion, though.

    Since it was flesh colored I don’t think it was that big of a difference. Although I am wondering why she did it.

    mole or no mole, it doesn’t help her decision making when choosing movie roles – blech.

    2nd Aleksis! That’s why I didn’t think it mattered much. She didn’t say why she did it though. She just said she didn’t really care for it.

    If she wanted to, then why not? 🙂

    I don’t think it is a big deal at all since I don’t really consider the mole a signature look for her. I never really noticed it there since it is flesh coloured and I never even noticed that she removed it either. I do think she looks better without it.

    I have to say – SJP is just the same to me mole or no mole. I definitely don’t think that it was her “signature”…(Hello, SHOES??) I did find a crazy & gross post about mole removal – DO NOT follow these steps under ANY circumstances! http://tictacdo.com/ttd/Remove-Moles-Yourself-Safely -This is for comic relief only!

    I have a mole on the upper bridge of my nose. People say it’s attractive. For now, I think it’s fine, but I’ll have it removed if it starts getting big and icky.

    I agree with what you say. Cindy’s mole is like her trademark. SJP’s one doesn’t really affect her character that much.

    Let’s get over this so called Mole-Gate. She’s still an icon of fashion and grace – mole or no mole!

    Her mole made her look ‘witchy.’

    I think she looks better without it. She is unusually attractive as it is, with character.

    Cindi is a beauty so the mole especially near her great lips, is intriguing.

    No, no no!! The mole is HER character.

    The mole wasn’t beautiful, and as she ages she is looking more witch like so the mole gone is actually a good thing. Plus no offense but she needs to gain some weight gaunt is NOT BEAUTIFUL

    Better without it! Moles are creepy and gross!

    Ladies, a mole is never attractive, especially up close. They’re gross, regardless the color. Who would want to put their lips anywhere near one? And if they sprout hair……erp. Crawford can pull it off because the rest of her is so freakin’ amazing, but Parker is so unattractive to begin with, the mole accentuated her butterfaceness. Beauty mark…..lol.

    I don’t think her mole was any big deal. I’ve seen much worse looking skin issues. But in her mind it was probably a hideous disfigurement. So if she’s more confident now in her appearance since having it removed, then power to her.
