Celebrity plastic surgery has been a blessing and a curse to Hollywood — with male and female stars spending big bucks to maintain their looks. Sadly, Hollywood’s predatory obsession with sexy young looks have often left celebrities going too far in their nips ‘n tucks. Check out these very famous faces that have made big changes over the years…
CHER was one of the first stars to go public about plastic surgery, declaring herself “the poster girl” for cosmetic surgery, and insisting that having work done “makes me happy!” She’s also had some plastic surgery disasters, though — from a wandering lip implant to a pre-filming Botox session that left her starring in 1996’s “Faithful” with a frozen face!
MADONNA pushes the benefits of her MDNA line of beauty products, but experts say she’s relied on plenty of nips ‘n tucks — with an Instagram selfie supposedly once revealing facelift scars. The ENQUIRER also caught her recently showing off some rejuvenated hands. The diva herself declared: “I am not going to hold a press conference if I have plastic surgery. But I’ve said many times, I think about it, and I sure don’t rule it out.”
NICOLE KIDMAN has insisted in the past, “No surgery for me” — but experts told The ENQUIRER that they believe she’s seemingly spent at least a cool million in work over the years! And even though Nicole gets critical acclaim when she gets unglamorous onscreen, she always looks unnaturally youthful while promoting the movies!
KENNY ROGERS grew older while looking perpetually surprised — with insiders blaming the ailing country star’s insistence on plastic surgery. Dr. Lyle Back told The ENQUIRER: “My patients ask me to not look like Kenny!”
MEG RYAN was once American’s Sweetheart, but now she’s hard to recognize after what appears to be multiple surgeries. Fans were first shocked when the “Sleepless in Seattle” star made a startling appearance at the 2016 Tony Awards — and then wrecked her directorial debut with “Ithaca” by starring as a small-town 1940s housewife with a very modern face!
PRISCILLA PRESLEY divorced Elvis Presley and sought out her own fame as an all-American girl — and even landed a successful film franchise with the “Naked Gun” movies. Sadly, she’s since spent years trying to recover from enduring injections of a “miracle anti-wrinkle serum” that turned out to be a car parts lubricant!
HELEN HUNT shocked her fans with an appearance on “Good Morning America” — but The ENQUIRER had already caught her showing off a startlingly different look as she turned 55 years old! Top cosmetic surgeons, who hadn’t treated the “Mad About You” star, speculated that Helen’s had, among other things, “Botox, fillers and/or skin treatments.”
MICHAEL JACKSON died suddenly in 2009 while promoting a planned concert tour — while showing off a face that looked faker than ever! The endless plastic surgeries endured by the troubled star were reportedly inspired by his determination to not look like his abusive father.
TARA REID has gone public about her disastrous 2004 breast augmentation and liposuction, saying: “My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing…As a result, I couldn’t wear a bikini. I lost a lot of work.” But insider also believe the “Sharknado” star has a different face from her ingenue years — although others say her new look is the result of a scary-skinny physique!
MICKEY ROURKE became an overnight star as a sexy arsonist in 1981’s “Body Heat” — but the vain actor was soon constantly going under the knife to maintain his youth. He was also pursuing his interest in boxing, and later said: “I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together.” Amazingly, he’s still managed a career comeback in films like “The Wrestler.”
DONATELLA VERSACE was thrust into the spotlight after her designer brother Gianni Versace was murdered in 1997 — which also put her alleged plastic-surgery obsessions on display. The designer has admitted to Botox injections, but otherwise insists that she simply uses “tons of cream, and take care of my hair and skin.”
GWEN STEFANI is reportedly one of Hollywood’s more successful plastic surgery stories, with the former pop diva looking ageless while maturing into a “Voice” judge dating Blake Shelton. Experts told The ENQUIRER that they believe that she’s had about $82,000 worth of obvious work — but added that the star has spent the money well! Gwen’s reps, meanwhile, have denied that she’s undergone procedures.
LARA FLYNN BOYLE became a star on the ABC series “Twin Peaks,” but was one of the few cast members who didn’t get invited back when the show made an acclaimed return to the Showtime network in 2017. Insiders blamed the star’s disturbing new face that’s left the troubled star looking nothing like wholesome good girl Donna Hayward!
MELANIE GRIFFITH expressed regret over having extensive plastic surgery — saying: “I didn’t [realize] until people started saying, ‘Oh my god, what has she done?’…Hopefully, I look more normal now!” That hasn’t kept her from maintaining her looks, although recent surgery on her nose was the result of a disturbing cancer scare!
JOAN RIVERS turned her plastic-surgery obsessions into a joke — but it wasn’t a laughing matter to fans who mourned the confident and sexy comic who won over hearts in the 1970s. Still, insisted Joan, “I’d rather look younger and feel happy than look older and be depressed.”
JANE SEYMOUR, however, is the rare star who admits, “I did Botox once” — but calls the face-freezing beauty jabs a “terrible mistake” — adding: “Everyone said, ‘You’ve got to do it…for me, it didn’t look normal.” The former TV star of “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman” now credits the constant use of sunscreen for the healthy skin that she showed off in a recent Playboy photo shoot!
