<p>During a 1983 interview on <a href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”noreferrer noopener”><em>Wogan</em></a>, a 37-year-old Dolly Parton was asked about how other women treated her. </p>

<p>“For many men, you are a fantasy figure,” said host Terry Wogan. “Does that mean you get resentment from women?”</p>

<p>“No, it don’t,” said Parton. “As a matter of fact… some find me sexy, some find me ridiculous.”</p>

<p>“I think it’s wonderful that somebody can say some find me ridiculous, it speaks of tremendous honesty,” said Wogan.</p>

<p>“Well, it is an honesty,” <a href=””>the “9 to 5” singer</a> responded. “I can see myself quite well because I’m not really your basic beauty. I mean, mine is all painted and powdered on.”</p>

<p>Parton explained why she thought women didn’t “resent” her for her beauty.</p>

<p>“You have to understand that I know myself probably better than anybody else, but women do not resent me because the fact that they can say to their husband if their husband or their boyfriend, if they get all out of hand, ‘Oh, you don’t know, she may be completely bald under that wig,’ or, ‘You don’t know if those are for real or not,’” she said. “So they kind of have something to strike back with.”</p>

<p>Parton said women recognized that her signature look might not be “real.” “I think the fact that I… had enough nerve to do some of the things that I’ve done, or look some of the ways that I’ve looked, and wear some of the things that I’ve worn – … I think it gives some women a chance to say, ‘Well, if I had the nerve, I would do that,’ or, ‘Don’t get too out of hand because you don’t know if any of it’s real or not.’”</p>

<p>Parton also revealed <a href=””>the “secret” to her beauty</a>: “People say I always look happy, I say, ‘That’s the Botox.’ You can have good lighting, good makeup, and good doctors – that’s my secret.”</p>
