Personal Quote:

"What a lifetime in eight years." (describing her relationship with John Lennon)


Had a "nose job" (rhinoplasty) during 1968, and was pleased with the results; the surgeon "gave me the right nose for my face." Then-husband John gave his support through the operation; all the same, he wrote later that Yoko Ono spared him from "having to live with my ex-wife's new nose." See more »
