Denise Richards - Richards' Regrets Over Boob Job

Actress Denise Richards regrets undergoing breast enhancement surgery as a teenager, and worries she sends her young daughters a "confusing message" about body image by fussing over her looks.
The former Bond girl was just 19 when she went under the knife to enhance her bust, and now she fears her decision to have the operation undermines the advice she gives her little girls about positive self-esteem.
In her blog on iVillage.com, Richards writes, "I often times feel like a hypocrite with my daughters when trying to teach them to have a healthy view on beauty and body image. I'm in a business where looks and weight do matter...
"My girls see me at work or getting ready for photo shoots and I'm sure at times it can be a confusing message to them when I'm being primped, dressed and fussed over. I always explain it's Mommy's job. They see me get spray-tanned and my nails done too. I always need fresh nails every week...
"At 19 when I first got my breasts done, I wish that I was confident enough with my body to not have had surgery. That is something that I really want to encourage in my daughters, to embrace their healthy body and have confidence."
The star has two daughters, Sam, seven, and Lola, six, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and she recently adopted a baby girl called Eloise.
