Little girls do, in general, grow out of their obsessions with dolls. But Orit Fox never did.
The 34-year-old Israeli model’s ambition is to turn herself into a life-size plastic Barbie doll using cosmetic surgery and hold off aging at the same time.
To do it, she has her plastic surgeon on call 24 hours a day and visits whenever she spots a wrinkle or is feeling less than happy about her looks.
“I like beauty,” she explains. “Visually, I look like Barbie, like a doll. Men love my body. It’s like a dream, a fantasy.”
Orit gained global notoriety in 2012 when a video of her being bitten on the breast by an angry snake during a photo shoot went viral.
Rumors that the snake had died thanks to its silicone-filled snack followed, but according to Orit, the reptile is still alive and none the worse for its 15 minutes of fame.
Orit says she has no plans to wind down her career or her plans for more surgery.
“I cannot stop this obsession to my beauty,” she insists.
Despite the painful nature of most of the procedures, Orit says she is willing to put up with just about anything to keep her looks.
