Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox reached out to her fans and critics yesterday on Instagram to put a stop to the rumors that she had a nose job. Her reason for her suddenly slimmer nose? Snapchat. Specifically, the “pretty” filter.
If you’re not a Snapchat user, know that its filters can transform a tired, makeup-free face into a total beauty queen in one second, which leads us to believe Laverne’s argument is completely plausible. And in today’s world where cosmetic enhancement procedures are becoming more status quo, why not just speak up about it if in fact she did have the procedure? She’s been so open about everything else. Lastly, there’s just the plain old fact that any sort of surgical (or even nonsurgical, via fillers) nose job would result in some sort of swelling, recovery time, etc., which she didn’t seem to undergo.

As captioned in her post below: “For everyone who thinks I had a nose job, the surgeon is snapchat,” Laverne wrote. “The first photo has #nofilter. The second has the #snapchat beauty filter. I try to love, embrace and accept myself every day, filter or no filter, make up or no makeup, weave or no weave. Filters are fun but they are no substitute for me waking up, looking in the mirror and seeing the unfiltered me as beautiful and worthy of acceptance and love.”
