Los Angeles, Jan 28 : Actress Nicole Eggert, who played Summer Quinn, has revealed that she felt uncomfortable wearing her ‘Baywatch’ outfits.
The 52-year-old actress was on the hit TV show for two seasons. However, she wasn’t actually aware at the time that she was going to be a ‘Baywatch’ lifeguard.
“All the girls worked out and were super tiny and fit and I was like ‘Whoops’. And the one-piece bathing suits were not flattering. I didnâ€™t want to wear it at all. It just wasnâ€™t what I signed up for. It was a totally different show and ballgame and not where I wanted to be,” she told People.
Nicole decided to have breast implants at the age of 18, amid concerns about her on-screen appearance.
The actress later regretted her decision, and she’s urged other young women to resist the temptation of surgery.
Nicole said: “I look at all these younger girls doing it and think, â€˜God, leave your bodies alone!â€™
“But when you have to put on that one-piece and it’s like you’re so flat that it’s like pleating — you got pleats across the front… You’re like, â€˜What is this?â€™ Nothing you can do. You can’t stuff it with anything. You can’t do anything.
“It was a stupid 18-year-old decision.”
Meanwhile, earlier this month, Nicole revealed that she’s been diagnosed with breast cancer. She was diagnosed with stage 2 cribriform carcinoma breast cancer in early December, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The actress said: “My fear is that my everyday hustle, everything that I do to keep everything going is going to come to a screeching halt when I’m not feeling well or I’m sick or I’m in the hospital or whatever is going on.
“It’s just so overwhelming, and I’m just doing everything I can not to spiral. At night when I lay down, I panic because I’m like, well, who’s going to cover all the bills? Who’s going to do all of this?”
