In a 2013 interview on "The Talk," Marie Osmond admitted to receiving breast reduction surgery early in her acting career. Osmond revealed that she suffered negative experiences centered on her breasts during the filming of "The Sound of Music," which eventually culminated in her seeking breast reduction surgery.
Commenting on her co-stars and their focus on her breast size in "The Sound of Music," Osmond said, "All they saw were my boobs." Osmond ended the interview by citing chiropractic concerns, stating, "Honestly, I did it too because my back hurt." Marie Osmond made her cosmetic surgery revelation a few days after Heidi Montag made a similar breast reduction revelation and two months after Julie Chen admitted to receiving facial surgery to appear "less Chinese."
