A 21-year-old Chinese woman is planning to get plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba. Her ex-boyfriend has a psycho-esque obsession with Alba, and she's willing to basically transform herself into Alba so that he'll date her again:
"I'm not only doing it for my ex-boyfriend, but for myself. I am a psychologically weak person. I want to do something to challenge myself and build a strong personality through it."
Liu Qi, an official at the Shanghai Time Plastic Surgery Hospital, said the woman would need eyebrow lifting, eyelid reshaping and nose reconstruction to look like Alba, the star of Sin City and Fantastic Four.
"There's no worry about the expense and it is technically practicable," Liu was quoted as saying. "But the face-lift is irreversible and we hope that she would take it seriously."
The woman, who works for a web firm, described to the newspaper how her Alba-obsessed 28-year-old ex-boyfriend hung photos of the actress on his walls and stored her image on his mobile phone.
The man demanded Xiaoqing do her make-up as Alba does, even when she slept, and gave her a blonde wig for Christmas, which he asked her to wear all the time.
She told the newspaper they broke up last month when she threw her wig and fake eyelashes to the ground after people laughed at her.
But afterwards, she said she reconsidered.
"I love him very much.... that's why I always followed his opinions. I don't want to lose him," the newspaper quoted her as saying.
The readers of the Thigh know how much I like Jessica Alba, but even I think this is ridiculously insane. Xiaoqing(as this woman identified herself), I'm thinking that maybe your first priority shouldn't be to go through with this surgery, but to avoid this Charles Manson-like dude for the rest of your life. Seeing a psychologist and getting some self-confidence might not be a bad idea either, although I think it's fair to say homeboy could use the therapy a bit more.
We never have a problem with a grade-A thigh, but be yourself ladies, and be proud of it. There's a ton of guys out there that will like you for who you are. Don't let idiot douchebags control your life.
