Jack Vidgen opens up about fillers, veneers and Botox after shocking viewers

Fans of Jack Vidgen were shocked by his appearance when he competed on The Voice last year, which was roughly 10 years after he rose to fame on Australia’s Got Talent.

Compared to the quiet 14-year-old that audiences knew and loved, Vidgen was virtually unrecognisable as he now has lip fillers, botox and veneers.

After months of rumours, Vidgen has finally spoken out about the extensive cosmetic work he’s received to news.com.au.

Speaking to James Weir on the podcast Not Here To Make Friends, Vidgen goes into detail about the first time he got Botox.

“I think I got it first when I was 19. I had these two creases in my forehead … I just tried it and they went away.”

He also confirmed that he still gets Botox occasionally.

“It’s just because I wear makeup, so the makeup doesn’t get in the (forehead) creases,” Vidgen explained.

Vidgen first got veneers during his time on Australia’s Got Talent.

“Between the semi-final and the final (in 2011) I got a full set of veneers, and then when I came back everyone was like, ‘What the f**k?’” the entertainer said.

“It was just something I wanted to do and I could afford it all of a sudden and I was like, why not?”

Vidgen spoke to Who Magazine about the first time he experimented with lip fillers and also explained his blasé view surrounding them.

“I’ve been trying to find myself again and I’ve definitely experimented with filler … there’s no denying that,” he said in reference to his lips.

“To me, lip filler is like make-up, it’s like doing your hair … it’s not permanent.”
