Chinese woman to get massive plastic surgery to look like Jessica Alba to win back boyfriend

A 21-year-old Chinese woman in Shanghai (pictured, left) will soon be getting massive plastic surgery in order to look like Jessica Alba (pictured, below).

Why, you ask? To win back her boyfriend (presumably Chinese), who she dated for a year and a half, but broke up with because of his obsession with Alba.

The woman’s “28-year-old boyfriend had been obsessed with Alba, adorning their apartment with her photographs and talking about her constantly,” reports Reuters. “He always hinted that he wanted [his girlfriend] to resemble his favorite star and even bought her a blonde wig to wear.” Creeepy!

The young woman, who would only identify herself as Xiaoqing, told Reuters that she broke up with her boyfriend a month ago because his Alba obsession became “too much” for her. But she’s been unable to get over the break-up and wants the guy back in her life.¬†What’s even worse is the advice she’s been getting from her apparently dim-witted friends.

“My friends… kept consoling me but it did not work, so they suggested I do plastic surgery to look like her (Jessica Alba),” the woman told Reuters. “I have never been able to let [my boyfriend] go. If in the end he still does not accept me after I undergo the¬†plastic surgeries, I will give up. I will then choose to let go, start afresh and live life by myself,” the 21-year-old said.

Astoundingly, the Shanghai Time Plastic Surgery center has offered to do the operations for free to “showcase their surgery skills,” reports Reuters, noting that the young woman will need multiple surgeries to her eyes and nose to get her to look like Alba — if that is even possible, which doesn’t seem likely. The Chinese woman and Alba are, after all, entirely different ethnicities.

There is one last hope that someone will knock some sense into the psychologically fragile young woman. Xiaoqing will be visiting her mother in the countryside for Chinese New Year (on February 14 this year) and says she will talk with her mother before making a final decision about the plastic surgery.

And we thought Heidi Montag’s plastic surgery was tragic!
