Yay Or Nay: Sarah Jessica Parker’s Mole Removal


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.

  1. 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.


  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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
