Busy Philipps - Busy Philipps Refused To Remove Moles

Actress Busy Philipps defied producers' orders to remove her trademark moles because she refused to alter her body just to win a role.
The Cougar Town star was just starting out in the business when TV bosses urged her to undergo treatments to make her skin blemish-free.
She tells New York Magazine, "I had been told early on by a (different) producer - this is no joke - that I should have all of my moles removed. And really, the thought is so f**king ludicrous. So I would have scars instead of black spots on my body?"
The actress stuck to her guns and admits she now flaunts her prized imperfections and natural beauty.
She adds, "Now that I'm a wiser, older human, when I do photo shoots, I specifically say, 'Please do not airbrush my moles out.' Because they will do it, to make you homogenised."
