    Default Melanie Griffith: 'Hopefully I Look More Normal Now'

    Melanie Griffith on Battling Addiction, Dating and Cosmetic Surgery: 'Hopefully I Look More Normal Now'

    Melanie Griffith isnt holding back when it comes to addressing complicated issues from her past.

    The actress spoke to Porter magazine for its latest issue, and said she did her best to make sure her addiction struggles and time in rehab didnt affect her children: Alexander Bauer, 31, Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson, 27, and Stella Banderas, 20.

    I was a totally functioning mom. I wasnt like a drunk-on-the-floor, out-of-it person, Griffith, 59, says in the new issue, out Friday. I didnt do some things I probably should have done but, mostly, I was there for my kids. They had a sort of privileged gypsy life.

    Griffith first entered a rehabilitation program to treat alcohol addiction in 1988, three years after her son was born. The stint led her to reconnect with former husband Don Johnson (the pair briefly married when she was 18) and they were remarried for five years before splitting again for good.

    Don was actually waiting for me when I got out of rehab, she says about Johnson, with whom she had daughter Dakota. We got back together; it was the most natural, perfect, loving thing. Then it just sort of wasnt working. I think its hard when you are both in the public eye, unless one of you gives up work.

    The star would go on to marry actor Antonio Banderas in 1996 before filing for divorce in 2014.

    I think part of the reason my marriage to Antonio fell apart was because I was stuck; nobody else is to blame. Its just that I personally got stuck and I wont let that happen again, I want to enjoy life, I want to do whatever I want to do, she says.

    As for her dating life now, Griffith admits its slow going - a different pace for the bombshell who once dated men like Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson and Ryan ONeal.

    Im shy with men now, very reticent ... nobody has asked me on a date [for almost two years], Griffith says.

    The onetime Oscar nominee also talks about the moment she decided to make a change after her cosmetic surgery work raised eyebrows.

    No, I didnt [realize] until people started saying. Oh my god, what has she done?! the star admits. I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this s- that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now.

    To see the full interview with Melanie Griffith, buy the latest issue of Porter, on sale globally this Friday. It is also available as a digital edition.

    I don't think so, Mel. These are from February 2016



    Looks like Candy Spelling




    I wondered where her ex Steven Bauer was so I just looked him up. He's 60 and dating a 20 year old (since she was 18) and Antonio is a with a woman 20 years younger. I never wonder why women aren't partnered.

    Her face is weird. It looks tight, but wrinkled.

    Thanks for pointing out that it was a WOMAN doctor, Mel. She might be the shittiest of shit doctors on planet Earth, but she still went to medical school instead of scratching a career out of fucking older men and being a former 15 year old hottie.

    Her chin implant is too big and everyone knows if your ears are growing longer, you should not drag them down with heavy earrings.

    Yep, she used to have a nice perky little nose and now it's all wide and flat.

    And...Don Johnson was so damn dreamy.

    59-year-old Melanie Griffith is featured in the latest issue of Porter magazine, where the actress opens up about her life, including regrets over plastic surgery, details of her love life, and her continued battles with addiction. USA TODAY








    Melanie Griffith isn't holding back.
    The actress, who finalized her divorce from Antonio Banderas at the end of 2015, opens up about her divorce, her dating life and even cosmetic surgery to Porter magazine.
    “I think part of the reason my marriage to Antonio fell apart was because I was stuck; nobody else is to blame. It’s just that I personally got stuck and I won’t let that happen again, I want to enjoy life, I want to do whatever I want to do," says Griffith, who was married to Banderas for 18 years.
    Griffith, 59, also discussed the downside of experimenting with cosmetic surgery in recent years.
    "I didn’t (realize it had gone too far) until people started saying. ‘Oh my god, what has she done?!’" the actress said of reaction to work she'd had done. "I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this (stuff) that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now.”

    The actress, who is often at events with her daughter, Dakota Johnson, touched on how her two stints in rehab for addiction to drugs and painkillers affected her role as a mother to Dakota, 27, Alexander Bauer, 31, and Stella Banderas, 20.
    “I was a totally functioning mom…I didn’t do some things I probably should have done but, mostly, I was there for my kids. They had a sort of privileged gypsy life," she says.
    She also explains that reconciliation with Don Johnson in 1989 (the two first dated when she was 14 and he was 22; they were married for six months in 1976).

    “Don was actually waiting for me when I got out of rehab," she says. "We got back together; it was the most natural, perfect, loving thing. Then it just sort of wasn’t working. I think it’s hard when you are both in the public eye, unless one of you gives up work.”
    Life after her divorce from Banderas has been quiet, she says now.
    “I’m shy with men now, very reticent," she says. "I haven’t met anyone in the almost two years (Antonio and I) have been divorced. No, I don’t go on dates, nobody has asked me on a date. I go out with my girlfriends.”
