Whatcha doing?” Dolly joked, “Oh I don’t know, I’m a cartoon so I just look the same all the time!” Oprah kept pushing and asked, “No but you’ve been open about that you’ve had some work done. Some tucks and pulls and sucks?”

In the same interview, Oprah pressed Dolly about her past depression. She asked, “When you went into your 40s I heard you went into a huge depression, did you?” Dolly, always joking, responded, “That wasn’t just because I was 40, that’s because I was fat and 40!” She added sincerely, “I really had a lot of problems during that time, a lot of female problems, and hormones. It was a depression thing I went through, just through changing around. But I am okay now, and it was one of the best thing that ever happened to me, because I really took inventory, I’d never slowed up, I’d been working since I was ten years old.”
