    The fan felt the celebrity had to stop “having facial surgery!” because her nose “looks like Michael Jackson’s,” making it hard to watch her. The person said they didn’t know about the negative comment about Sherri Shephard that Thomas allegedly made.

    The follower shared that the actress had been in her hometown years before and was reportedly “demanding and extremely rude to the wait staff!” In June 2022, Phil’s wife uploaded another Instagram picture of them posing together, and she looked different.

    The “That Girl” star seemed to have gone makeup-free for the shot where she and her husband were in Bermuda for Memorial Day. Someone seemed worried about what Thomas had done to herself, asking if she had a “facelift?”

    A fan that saw the post asked what had happened to the actress’ nose and face. Another person who commented on the then 85-year-old star’s post urged her to “age gracefully” as Phil was “fabulous,” while that wasn’t the case for Thomas.

    The follower noted how they had loved the couple since childhood but asked her to stop taking Botox. Taking the attention away from Thomas, someone else noticed how smooth Phil’s skin was and that their mother was the same, with another fan stating:

    “Omg, you [look] like like (sic) a burn victim??”

    A fan thought the couple was “great” but believed the image didn’t look like the actress anymore. The person said Thomas was a “beautiful soul” and urged her to “stop getting face work done!”

    Another follower noted how Phil looked “a bit older and a bit frail,” but his wife had “lost herself to plastic surgery.” The person thought the star’s face looked like it was covered in “Saran Wrap like she has been in a fire” before asking why people did that to themselves.

    An Instagram user agreed that Phil looked great, but Thomas was unrecognizable. Someone else asked the celebrity what she’d done to her face, while another believed she’d “overdosed on plastic surgery.”

    [Marlo] Thomas also noted how the sex life would improve the more you were inside each other’s heads.
    Another follower thought she didn’t look like herself, leaving someone else “shocked.” A Thomas fan said they didn’t realize the person in the picture was Donahue’s wife because she looked “so different.”

    Someone who seemed to be following Thomas’s career noted how “sad” it was that the star had “changed drastically over the past 2 years.” A fan figured adding some “eyebrow pencil would help some,” and although she received a lot of criticism, Donahue’s wife didn’t care.

    Marlo Speaks about Age and Sex
    In 2016, Thomas opened up about aging and sex, noting how people would say you couldn’t do something at your age, and encouraged fans not to listen to that. The star said she believed “in motion” that doing something daily got you closer to your dream, no matter how small the steps were.

    The actress, married to Donahue since 1980, said the secret to a successful marriage was sex. However, added to that was being able to listen to your partner so they felt heard and good about themselves.

    Thomas said she was always offering her husband advice, and ten years later, he told her he didn’t want to be told what to do but wanted her to listen. The celebrity shared that listening well would lead to more intimacy with your significant other.

    Thomas also noted how the sex life would improve the more you were inside each other’s heads. The star also urged younger women not to worry about getting older because she’d learned it got easier.

    Donahue’s wife said she’d done it all, work, marriage, and friendships and didn’t have the same anxieties she had when she was young. The difference now was that she’d experienced it all and was now “just having fun.”
