Carol Burnett has always appeared to be a confident woman. After all, the comedy legend was the first woman to host a weekly variety show, The Carol Burnett Show, which was a smash hit for 11 years. Even the most confident performers, especially in Hollywood, can have insecurities. Burnett once explained how a scene in the 1982 film musical, Annie, in which she played the villainous orphanage owner Miss Hannigan alongside Tim Curry as her con artist brother Rooster and Bernadette Peters as his girlfriend, the seedy bombshell Lily St. Regis, had to be reworked to hide her recent plastic surgery on her chin.
Later, Burnett revealed to Seth Meyers on Late Night with Seth Meyers in 2015 that the song Easy Street, which she performed with Curry and Peters, was originally intended to be one of Annie’s most elaborate numbers. The sets, choreography, and costume changes were costly, and in her opinion, overdone. She remembered telling her co-stars, “The first time they did it,” she said of the“Easy Street scene, “it was with 400 extras, dancers, singers – it was overkill. Burnett, Curry, and Peters all agreed that it should be a simpler number featuring only the three villains. They’re doing too much.”
Still, Annie’s director John Huston was hesitant to change the number. The film’s production ended with the original version of “Easy Street” still intact. Curry returned to London, Peters to New York, and Burnett to her current residence in Honolulu, Hawaii. Burnett decided to have plastic surgery on her chin after filming was completed, despite the fact that Annie appeared to be a success.
According to The Washington Post, the Carol Burnett Show star was always self-conscious about her weak chin. Burnett once stated, “We all have little hang-ups about ourselves. I just decided that I would like to have a chin. I’ve never had one. It’s just nice to be able to feel the rain on your chin, and I never felt that. It didn’t take courage to get a chin. It took courage going through life with no chin.”
Similarly, Burnett revealed to Meyers that she had always secretly wished to have work done on her chin because she thought it was weak. Later, she confessed to the talk show host, saying, “I’d always wanted a chin. I had a very weak chin.”

So, when the opportunity arose, Burnett decided to seize it. In Honolulu, an oral surgeon had previously worked with her daughter Jody Hamilton, who had an underbite (as opposed to Burnett’s overbite). Burnett was promised that the surgeon could change the shape of her jaw. She had the procedure done to bring out her chin by three or four millimeters.
Burnett learned shortly after her surgery that she would have to return to the Annie set to reshoot “Easy Street.” The filmmakers now agreed with Burnett, Curry, and Peters that a simpler version of the song would be preferable. Burnett told Meyers, adding jokingly: “I got a call from the producers, who said, ‘We’re going to reshoot the ‘Easy Street’ number. And I said, well, I have a chin now.”
Huston wanted the three stars to pick up the shot right after Burnett ran into the closet to retrieve Annie’s locket. But there was one issue, as Burnett pointed out: her new chin. I said, “Mr. Huston, two months ago, when I ran into the closet, I didn’t have a chin. And now I’m going to come out of the closet with a chin.”
