In an interview with Porter magazine, Melanie said that she realized that plastic surgery snatched her natural beauty after people around her noticed the changes on her face. She explained-
“I didn’t [realise] until people started saying, ‘Oh my God, what has she done?!’ I was so hurt I went to a different doctor and he started dissolving all of this s — t that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now.”

The actress, who was previously married to Antonio Banderas on May 14, 1996, also opened up about her divorce which took place in 2015. She now says that she is single and goes out with her girlfriends.
“I think part of the reason my marriage to Antonio fell apart was because I was stuck; nobody else is to blame. It’s just that I personally got stuck and I won’t let that happen again, I want to enjoy life, I want to do whatever I want to do."
Moreover, she added:
“I’m shy with men now, very reticent. I haven’t met anyone in the almost two years we have been divorced. No, I don’t go on dates, nobody has asked me on a date. I go out with my girlfriends.”
