15 Good Looking Celebrities Who Destroyed Themselves with Plastic Surgery

axl rose

Celebrities probably feel more pressure than all of us to stay young and good looking, as they’re constantly in front of cameras practically every day of their lives. But unfortunately, this drives them to make some questionable choices when it comes to their bodies. Plenty of celebrities have gone under the knife for plastic surgery over the years, but sometimes it can go wrong. Very wrong. All of the celebrities you see here were at one point quite good looking, but botched or ill-conceived plastic surgery changed their faces and bodies more than time itself ever could. Check out the gallery for 15 of the worst examples.

    You forgot Rose Mcgowen.

    • Kala

      Rose McGowan looks absolutely gruesome now.

      • Terry

        She was in a car accident and her face was sliced pretty badly. She had plastic surgery after that happened to fix the scar and the way it looked.

  • Steven

    A once beautiful, wholesome woman who ruined her looks and career is Meg Ryan.

    • Kathy Bowen

      Prisilla Presley was a BEAUTY as well and after her ps she looks like a roadshow clown…

  • lala

    That’s the FIRST person that popped in my head! I can’t believe Rose didn’t make the list. She messed her face up bad, smh.

    • Jean

      Rose’s surgery wasn’t elective. She was in a wreck and her face was badly damaged. What you see is reconstruction surgery.

  • Bored

    Don’t these celebrities think before they do these ridiculous surgeries? Christ, some of them look like they had me do the surgery and I can just barely operate a pair of scissors.

  • Big Bear

    Clowns. That’s what they look like! Clowns.

  • Pam

    Jennifer Grey’s looks pretty good. The rest look like cast members of a cheesy horror flick.

    • yankee2

      Her nose shrank just a bit I think. I liked her old one better. It seems like the purpose of some PS must be to erase character.

  • fran

    Kenny Rogers is my all time favorite disaster.

    • Oladimeji Famuyiwa

      The man looked so good before. He should have just left himself alone.

  • BUTCH 92064

    WHAT ABOUT CHER? The only thing wrong with this article is ALL THE ONES YOU MISSED! Many of your pix were not NEARLY as bad as CHER and others!!!!!

    • Donna

      Butch, you’re right. I am always commenting about Cher. It’s hard not to stare at her upper lip. Seems like it was pulled down toward her chin.

  • diane

    they all look like freaks. people should just fix what is VERY wrong–not get ridiculous. most need their teeth and noses done, not all that other stuff. SO many people are SO stupid!!

  • karen

    you forgot Steven Tyler

  • TomG

    Kenny Rodgers… Joan Rivers… Lisa Rinna… Some people just need to age gracefully.. I guess when they look in the mirror, they don’t see ugly…

  • llilbrumz88

    I agree with most of these, but keep in mind all these people are trying to keep up appearances, generally youthful appearances, so they can continue to get gigs. Hollywood is beautiful, and having a cousin who is in LA and has done acting and continues booking more things, has explained to me the importance looks play in getting parts. So before we judge too hardcore, do understand that in these ppl’s minds they are just trying to keep up to par a all these young artists and get jobs!

    • tostonesfix

      Megan Fox is 27!

  • Chotzee

    Kenny Rogers – “… looks like he changed races.” What a vapid comment.

    • Bob

      I agree re the Kenny Rogers comment. So offensive.

  • Sapphire

    No one likes to get old. These ppl HAVE to stay young looking (if you want to call any of these ppl young) in order to work. Not too many ppl in show biz grow old gracefully anymore. Their motto/chant/karma is “No wrinkles, no sagging skin, no age spots, no grey hairs – surgery forever!” I’d draw it for you but I don’t know how lol.

    • Starla

      All true, but post surgery, you’re not supposed to be startled each time you look in the mirror.

  • lesley

    Didn’t Mickey Rourke have to have surgery following an accident? The rest were just vanity (I guess- I hate the word celebrity, I haven’t a clue who half of these people are!-nor do I care) As my Dad used to say, “who are they when they’re working?” anyhow, when did they oversized lip craze begin? Aren’t they part of an almost caricature look that led that actress to be cast in a movie based on a graphic novel? oh well, that is what they all look like now – they really should have found Drs that had a better sense of prospective.

    • justmytwo

      Actually, Mickey Rourke left acting to become a boxer.
      When that didn’t work out, he couldn’t get hired because his once attractive face was beat all to he11. Hence the overdone plastic surgery

    • RS

      Motorcycle accident, but yeah. Then he went into boxing in an attempt to revive a career which had held some promise in his youth. When he returned to acting, he admitted, like the victims listed in the article and on the page to “going to the wrong guy” and like most of those here, he was “strongly advised” to go under the knife for the sake of the career. Its horribly sad that such beautiful people get exploited and disfigured so badly because of someone else’s lack of skill, talent, education, sense, or money. Sad, too, that they should believe the lie that their looks and not their talent is why we love them.

  • Hawk

    Why on earth would Megan Fox need, or want, plastic surgery???? That’s like painting over the Mona Lisa. Stupid stupid woman.

    • Carney

      Not only that, she’s covered in tattoos. It’s like a graffiti vandal going after a Michelangelo sculpture.

      • R S

        You don’t see bumper stickers on a Bentley.

  • Carol

    Lisa Rinna had her upper lip undone, so it’s not really fair to include her. She looks really good now.

  • Teena

    Priscilla Presley should be on this list. She use to be a beautiful woman now she’s a frozen faced clown

    • Beth_12

      Agreed! And her daughter is following in her footsteps!

  • IvyKllr

    I believe that Rose McGowan’s surgery was reconstructive, due to a car accident, rather than her own choice.

    I have sympathy for her – but I also have sympathy for the others. The pressure to remain pretty, to remain young, is overwhelming and omnipresent, and their paychecks depend upon it. They have these surgeries for survival’s sake – and to then be faced with the consequences of poor surgeries must be a festering sore to them, day in and day out.

    • HelenBackAgain

      No, Rose just has a little scar under one eye is all. Revision was done on that, and a good job too – it’s barely there now. The rest was entirely elective.

  • Kate

    I laughed out loud at the Kenny Rogers comment. Do you mean we can’t even say the word RACES any more? Give me a break. There was nothing insulting about that comment. People have become so incredibly stupid.

    • Ray

      You, Kate, are the epitome of the typical ignorant white American.

      So you think there was nothing insulting about that comment? I’m sure the majority of asian people will disagree. And will you call asian people stupid now for thinking it was offensive? If so, you are racist and incredibly ignorant.

      • max.Wright

        So you are standing up for other people who you imagine might be offended?? Can’t they stand up for themselves? I mean, they know karate and everything… I’d think they can take care of themselves.

      • topkatnc

        Shuffle that race deck !

    • Molly

      You are 100% correct, Kate.

    • Bill Trimble

      Thank you Kate, was hoping someone besides me felt that way. The comment was correct and nothing wrong with it.

  • Joy

    Where is Pete Burns?

  • Jarrod

    I guess they use the term “stars” loosely here. JWow, Montag, etc. If they are stars why don’t we include the key grip from Gremlins 2 or the casting agent from Halloween 5? I bet they have had some work done too.

  • mtgirl

    #1. It’s there money and there bodies, if they want it done who are we to say it’s not right.
    #2. At the end of the day they are the ones who have to look at this not us, cause you know if they mess up too bad 9 of 10 time, career over.
    #3. It’s time to for America to focus on what is important. It would be nice to turn on the TV and not hear about celebs or how horrible this world has become.

  • jerry l

    With the money these people have and the resources available to them, they must be able to check out their surgeons competence before they just let someone take sharp instruments and cut them to pieces. Some of these were beautiful people. Hopefully they can sue and they should. They probably do, it is just part of the settlement agreement that they will not disclose that to the press. I guess if you finish dead last in your medical school graduating class, they still call you “Doctor”.

  • Will

    I’m happy for all these people. I’m happy their maladjusted, groping, insecure, shallow and egotistical little lives can shine like a beacon on how “natural” should be cherished and happiness comes from within and “beauty” does not lie at the end of a surgeon’s knife.

    So… THANK YOU “celebrities”.!

  • danaman

    Axl Rose rockin’ the Bo Derek look. You go, girl!

    And were missed at the Pride parades.

  • Bee

    I never cared for Lisa Rinna. I stopped watching Dancing with the Stars when she was on.

  • Brandon

    How in the world did NIKKI COX get left off this list. She went from hotness to looking like the Joker and I dont mean that in a good way

  • Pammy

    Some of these women are so young, like Megan Fox. I hope she just used botox because then it is reversible. Although recent photos of Meg Ryan showed that her face loosened up and she looks more like herself. I hope she doesn’t try to do it again. The saddest to me is Lil’ Kim. She was so naturally beautiful and now you cannot recognize her at all! Her beautiful eyes are now so tiny, and her whole face looks bloated and stiff. It’s just so very sad, like Michael jackson, he was such a handsome guy and didn’t look bad after his initial nose job, but became obsessed with plastic surgery and totally became freakish looking. His siblings and even nieces and nephews all had work done. It is so unnatural and nobody looks better, they just look strange. Everyone in Vegas gets face lifts, especially the men, and it feminizes them. They all look alike, as if they are wearing masks. Plastic surgeons should be sued when they do all that work and it isn’t necessary. They say plastic surgery can be addictive, that sure seems to be true. Even with people who are not celebrities. Aside from a nose job, I don’t think they should allow plastic surgery on anyone under 21, unless it’s absolutely necessary. Sorry for the long rant…it’s just so disturbing that this is allowed or that people are so insecure about their looks they end up mutilating themselves.

    • DrRockNRoller

      Plastic surgeries should be restricted to repairing damages caused by accidents etc. How about a ‘be kind to society’ TAX on any elective plastic surgeries of 100% or more like they do to automobile fuels. It is a complete WASTE of medical resources all for the vanity of it. I do not pity the mistakes like Bruce Jenner, they asked for it.

    • Oladimeji Famuyiwa

      It’s sad. Perhaps after you adjust on feature, the temptation comes to adjust another. Look at Kenny Rogers. That man looked really good before. I thank God for my face. It is not perfect but I like it the way it is.

  • john

    Let’s not forget to add Dolly Parton to the list.

  • Becky

    UHM, what about Courtney Cox?? That woman used to be gorgeous, now she’s scary as all hell! How in the world she thinks she looks better now is beyond me. I guess they can’t all age gracefully like Jennifer Aniston.

    • MG of IL

      Actually Jennifer Aniston is starting to look puffy and filled. She reminds me of Olivia Newton John – also using fillers and not nearly as pretty as she once was.

  • JWCamp

    How could you leave Courtney Cox off of this list. She went from pretty to ‘The Joker.’ Speaking of ‘The Joker,’ where is Cameron Diaz?

  • Frank

    How about Bruce Jenner? He should be right at the top of the list.

    • Mcflyer54

      Bruce Jenner should sue, assuming that the work was done by a real doctor.

  • Epanoda

    This is a psychological disorder. There is a difference between maybe getting a little nip and tuck or botox for a more youthful appearance, but changing and augmenting the way look indicates a profound mental imbalance.

  • laila

    To be fair, Lisa Rinna had “Angelina lips” before Angelina did.

    • PuaTahiti

      Yes, but Angelina lips are real, not fake. Check out her photos when she was a little girl and a teenager. Same lips.

      • miss_msry

        It’s not ALL real, even she and her hubby admit to enhancement.

    • Damien Fox

      Pua Tahiti is right, Angelina gets collagen to fill a crease in the center of her bottom lip, but that’s all. The issue with a lot of the treatments is that it takes a day or two for the swelling from the treatment to go down, so if they get photographed too soon, they can look bad.

  • Misty123

    I’ll bet their surgeons laughed all the way to the bank and are probably still laughing.

  • Jeff

    Putting Axl here is silly–his face looks fine. Well, unless the braids are part of the plastic surgery…

  • Techlilinu

    Michael Jackson was always good looking right up until the end. He was beautiful all the around.

  • Jim S

    No Joan Rivers? and how does Micheal Jackson not make the #1 spot?

  • DNA

    The names of doctors who did such a bad job should be posted!

    • Clemmieo

      Good point DNA! They should b disbarred or whatever it is they can do to doctors so they can’t practice their practice anymore.

    • hardfu

      It’s not always the doctors. This often happens simply because people ask for something unrealistic and/or go to multiple Dr.’s. If one ethical Dr. turns them down, they just go somewhere else. The only one on here I can say truly was the fault of the surgeon was Tara Reid. That was just awful. But Mickey Rourke destroyed himself as a boxer then wanted to look like a star again, not gonna happen…

    • R S

      As a Plastic Surgeon, I can’t possibly disagree. Imagine a Heart Surgeon who would implant a device to supercharge a heart so a person could have superior performances. Medicine as a practice should never be overdone. Sending these uninformed dreamers to the appropriate mental health professionals is the right thing to do. As a surgeon, I’ve routinely turned people away from these bad choices. It is our job to redirect and keep them within the boundaries of a better version of themselves, not someone whose own mother couldn’t pick them out of a crowd of three. I’d be in favor of posting the physician’s name when they are party to these wretched results.

    • TheLance3185 .

      That’s right, and their licenses revoked. Malpractice and greed.

  • Nora

    How could you have left out Joan Rivers?

  • griff

    Joan Van Ark absolutely and entirely belongs on this list.

  • BMac

    And what about Meg Ryan? She also used to be pretty…..

  • Clemmieo

    What about Barry Manilow and Secretary of State Kerry; neither one can move their lips. You would think with all the money in the world to have this stuff done and the supposedly best doctors to do it, how could they screw up! I can only afford Thermage, but I still look like me, thank Gawd!

  • Jonel

    Why is Carrot Top or Lil Kim not on this list? I have night terrors about their faces…..

    • A Mankato Resident

      Carrot Top looks like a freak, he could do a horror movie and need no makeup.

  • Allie

    It actually just looks like he’s recently had a face peel or something.

  • CaliDreamer03

    Why isn’t Meg Ryan on this list??? She used to be such a fresh faced natural beauty….Shuch a shame what she did to her face.

    • Beth_12

      True. Meg was a beauty. I never thought of Jennifer Grey or Tori Spelling as “attractive” either.

  • cobouch53

    How could you have forgotten Bruce Jenner?

  • Wes

    If it weren’t for her nose job, jennifer grey would have Renee Zellwegger’s career.

  • Jane

    Bruce Jenner is another who looked better “before” the knife.

  • Jim

    With some of these celebrities if I hadn’t been told that they had had plastic surgery I wouldn’t have guessed it. Either way, it just goes to show you shouldn’t change what God gave you.

  • Sheila


    His was the worst. He was very good looking, and then suddenly he was a bird face.

  • Dick

    Lara Flynn Boyle looks exactly like Joan Rivers now that’s just wrong!!

  • J

    I think Jennifer Gray is still very pretty. She had nose surgery for medical reasons.

    • Jane domes

      Medical reasons?ya think?She is still very pretty.The problem was no one knew who she was anymore.

      • Julia H.

        Many people suffer from a deviated septum and have Septoplasty surgery. This will NOT drastically change the look of your nose. Rhinoplasty is the reshaping of the nose and is completely different. Don’t let them fool you. What does often happen though is that the doctor will ask you if you want the shape of your nose changed. Hence, the Septoplasty becomes a Septoplasty with Rhinoplasty. It is a two birds with one stone situation.

    • SM

      Jennifer Gray ended up with a Bob Hope nose…like the rest.

  • jabbers

    The only plastic surgery that Tori Spelling needed would have been to fix that long protruding chin. The rest of her looked great.

    • Tecumseh1768

      The only thing Tori ever needed was her incredible acting skills.
      And her dad who just happened to be a major Hollywood producer.

  • Kris

    Anyone seen a pic of Wayne Newton lately?

  • larry sheppard

    Clint Black should have made the list.

    • topkatnc

      Indeed .. he was such a handsome man .

  • B.W.

    Since when is JWoww a celebrity?

  • hardfu

    Ok some are fair enough but Axel Rose (aside from the corn rows) looks normal) and Jennifer Grey? Are you kidding me? She looks so much better post nose job, just like Ashley Simpson. Yea it changed her face and you wouldn’t recognize her at first glance. But that’s because that little tweak made her look more astounding. I don’t know why I read these, they just piss me off.

    I think i’m going to make my own list… “Real life pictures of online beauty critics…” with a little subheading of, “What went wrong and why they’re so bitter.” We’d all have a laugh.

  • Jane domes

    axl was good looking?

  • Jay Dunckley

    It’s sad to say Mickey Rourke looks better as Marv from Sin City than he does without makeup.

  • George T Coggins

    i do not believe Mickey Rourke had plastic surgery and his face changing so quickly was due to his stint as a Boxer halfway into his film career but don’t quote me

  • Johnny Nightrider

    Who would want a frozen face? Not me.Age gracefully and you will look better.

  • Johnny Nightrider

    Sad and odd he couldn’t see he went way 2 far.Michael Jackson looked in 84 when he was doing Beat It.After that it got odd.

  • Danna Stewart

    Priscilla Presley and Melanie Griffith should top this list.

  • qonc1

    Tori: When are you going to get rid of the extremely unflattering white hair? It does nothing for you, honey. Just look at your “before” picture. Much softer color for your face. This white is too harsh and unflattering. So is the hairstyle.

  • ChimChim Charee

    Lisa Rinna looks like she has a giant slab of raw liver on her mouth. Gross.

  • ChimChim Charee

    Doesn’t Tori Spelling have enough money to go back to the surgeon and have them fix that giant dent in her b00b?

  • Jeronimo Dan

    I know Kenny Rodgers took a picture of a Macua Monkey with him to the plastic surgeon and said “I want to look like this”.

  • topkatnc

    Where was Melanie Griffins face ?? .. ( Most likely she’s hiding it ) … She looks more like her husbands mother than his wife …. ouch .

  • Kellykin

    The worst was left off the list…Meg Ryan

  • yankee2

    Not very informative. Most of them look normal to me, if aging. Some obvious and horrific (e.g. MJ). How about before/after? How about a little more information? This was just a poor picture book with barely any captions.

  • alan sader

    Frankly, Kenny Rogers looks pretty darn good for 76 years old. You’re not really showing before and after shots here. In most cases they are many years apart.

  • alan sader

    BOTOX is not surgery.

  • alan sader

    so why exactly are we seeing this picture of Tara Reid?

  • alan sader

    Victoria Beckham was 20 years younger when Spice Girls began. Of course she doesn’t look the same!

  • http://theseearthlings.com/ These Earthlings

    Jennifer Grey shouldn’t be on this list. She was in a terrible accident that necessitated a ton of reconstructive surgery. It was not by choice.

  • redsongia

    They do this stuff because they look in the mirror too close. They over-examine and fixate on little things. If they’d take 2 steps back from the mirror at any given moment, they wouldn’t have the urge to smooth out every unnoticable wrinkle until they turn into balloon heads.

  • redsongia

    Posh looks great. I think she hasn’t had any surgery to her face, but she has gotten very, very thin. Back in the day, celebs still ate carbs and just tried to work out 4 hours a day doing cardio. Now they go low carb/vegetarian and it takes all the bloat out of their faces.

  • Beth_12

    While I realize that this story is about celebrities who were attractive before plastic surgery, and that most certainly would not include Madonna, she had some major work done. It looks as if she’s had cheeks implanted, her eyes and brow lifted, along with her chicken neck. She doesn’t look anything like she did when she started out.

  • alicestottko

    Jwow stated on Bethenny talk show that she has had NO plastic surgery except for her boobs !

  • miss_msry

    I think Viveca A. Fox is the saddest. She was lovely before.

  • jim c

    She wouldn’t look like her spice girl way 20 years from anyway..

  • The Cloud

    Kenny Rogers used to be so handsomely cute. Now he looks like a buck toothed chipmunk! What a damned shame!

  • The Cloud

    Kenny Rogers used to be so handsomely cute and now he looks like a buck toothed chipmunk!

  • cetj98168

    Have any of these doctors lost their medical licenses?

  • Marisol

    I think Jennifer Grey looks better

  • Susan

    Lisa Rinna looks gorgeous…I can’t understand why everyone picks on her…

    • Promeat

      Perhaps because she looks as if she has been stung repeatedly on both of her lips?

    • Bruce

      because her collagen-enhanced lips look as though she was stung by 10,000 wasps all at the same time!

      • Angela Padilla


    • Barbara

      Her mouth is not gorgeous. And I beg to differ on the comment regarding her body and how she claims she maintains it….she had a boob job. I saw pictures and they were as bad as Tori Spellings….

    • skeber

      She too has had tremendous amount of work…and she readily acknowledges it.

  • donttreadonme7

    Yikes! Beauty really is in the I of the beholder.

  • Yusiley Sierra

    Hmmm… with Victoria Beckham… I think it was more to do with the years she had been tormenting her body through anorexia and other eating disorders that has caused her to age so rapidly. Just look at the last Biggest Loser winner Rachel Frederickson. She is only 24 but in her new 105 pound body she looks 45 – 50yrs old. O_O That’s what bad eating habits and unhealthy exercise regime does to a womans’ body… ages it and destroys it. It is not a pleasant mental disorder to look at.

  • Terri Mansfield

    I agree….she is a beautiful woman!!

  • Lula Barnett

    People get older of course they don’t look like they use to!

    • Roger Morton

      Have you seen the before and after of Alex Jones?

  • Sam Spade

    Meg Ryan, Joan Rivers . . .

  • LexTalionis

    Everyone should consult with either Raquel Welch or Christie Brinkley before having surgery. Those are the only two that did it right, and I would love to know who their surgeons were.

  • Elizabeth

    Where is Kim Kardashian?

  • reardensteel

    Uhh… you left off Carrie Fisher.

    I’ll never understand why they do this; history has proved that you look best just staying out of the sun, staying clean and fit, and getting a good makeup job.
    And, most importantly, you maintain your dignity and others’ respect.

    • Deb

      You also maintain a much larger bank account.

    • alsaxe

      staying out of the sun is a myth..u need sunshine to stay healthy..Granted, no one should bake for hours in it, but u should get about 10-15 minutes of healthy sunshine on your face and arms…sunscreen is not a healthy thing to use either

      • San Diego Doug

        if a person has to be out in the sun for multiple hours a day, then sun screen is definitely a healthier thing to do, than not using it at all.

        • alsaxe

          i really don’t know about that. Slathering man made chemicals on one’s skin to keep the sun at bay doesn’t sound like a good thing to me. I”m not for baking in the sun either. I do,however, understand your point about people that are forced to stay in the sun for a lot of the day. They can then cover themselves up w/light clothing though. We’ve been w/o sunscreen for thousands of years. I wonder what the incidence of skin cancer was for people during biblical times when there was no sunscreen available. Unless, they knew about natual liquids that kept the sun at bay..

          • San Diego Doug

            most likely, majority of people in Biblical days…… never lived long enough to get skin cancer.

      • skeber

        Vitamin D!

  • GodzWill

    Oh and Mickey Rourke – a close 2nd or 3rd…

  • Jaybird

    Rose McGowan. Saw her in a movie not long ago and she was unrecognizable.

    • CeCe Says Ugonlearntaday

      She was in a car accident and had to get reconstructive surgery

  • Jamie the Union Leech

    Oh it’s just the Hollyweird crowd who cares.

  • dannyo66

    I always thought Jennifer Grey was absolutely gorgeous before her nose surgery. Saw her afterwards, and missed her nose. It wasn’t a bad nose originally, and it definitely added a uniqueness to her beauty. She’s still pretty, but now isn’t what she was.

    • Gary

      He should have had his license revoked for touching her face.

    • skeber

      Jennifer Grey regrets having surgery for the same reason you point out…she’s no longer distinguishable.

  • Elizabeth Claiborne

    Frozen Face – or Botox – is actually useful for actresses. If it isn’t moving it isn’t wrinkling, so they tox up in between movies. A really good face lift will never be as good as preserving what you have.

    Info from a first class plastic surgeon;

  • Dan Keskitalo

    Jennifer Gray is still every good looking, even though she lost her unique look

    • San Diego Doug

      exactly, the new person is still attractive.
      she just looks nothing like Jennifer Gray.

      • skeber

        And I believe that’s the point…if you end up looking like a different person or your face is too taut or lop sided, how is that an improvement?

  • Diane

    Kenny Rogers reallly looks different. Even his teeth are changed…..

  • Gwen Jones

    Marie Osmond.

    • Angela Padilla

      Diffently very noticeable, doing the commercials, still Beaitful but hardly facial expression:

  • zaq55 .

    Throw in Wayne Newton too

  • Eve Siegel

    Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers.

    • 1Verny65

      Dolly is pretty as a picture, she is not young anymore, think of how she would look had she NOT had the surgeries!

      • nonyabizzz

        Kenny looks kinda messed up, tho

        • 1Verny65

          Yep, he sure IS and it is sad because his look was fine as it was. His plastic surgeon should be sued!!!!

        • Ann Cottrell

          Kenny ACTS kind of messed up.

          • jack knife

            Probably because he is in pain. And has to take dope.- Maybe just to look in the mirror.

      Rogers is scary looking now.

      forgot about the most talked about guy now!

  • Ted

    But they still look better before……i like it when a girl smiles and her face actually moves

    • Cheesus Toast

      I think you can be pretty certain that they are joking :). The first 2 people he mentioned looked barely human after surgery.

  • Cheryl Roarke

    Nicole Kidman such a beauty, why on Earth would she need plastic surgery ?

    • Guy Nevins

      It’s called VANITY…….

      • leankat

        My favorite sin (Al Pacino in The Devil’s Advocate )

    • Barbara

      Seeing how truly beautiful she was in that movie “Dead Calm” —it is unbelievable to me why in the world she did what she did to her truly beautiful face.

    • Angela Padilla

      Think she still Beaitful, couldn’t tell!

  • Susan Shea

    I remember when Kenny Rodgers used to come into a club I worked in,in Wash. D.C.He was truly a heart throb. That was back in 1969-1970. Good Guys on Wisconsin Ave. Why people do this to them selves is beyond me.!!!!

    • Newbie

      My late mother also had hooded eyes. It impeded her vision. Because she had a bad heart, she didn’t have surgery when her doctor recommended it. Medicare would have paid for it. I have the same eyes as well. Ever since I was a teenager, one couldn’t see my eyelids. I wanted eyelids that showed so I could experiment with eye make-up and have it show, like the other girls. Kenny Roger’s before and after cured me of that notion. But I bet his eyesight is better.

  • Guy Nevins

    It’s one thing to remove a few pounds or crow’s feet, but so many of these actors went way overboard.

  • qonc1

    Megan is clearly one more procedure from jumping the shark.

    • Daniel Hill

      She’s the one I can’t understand. She’s not even 30. It must speak to something else going on with her, like depression or insecurity. Outer beauty is no defense against inner demons. Marilyn Monroe proved that.

    • Newbie

      I don’t see any difference. I think the after picture just has bad lighting.

  • qonc1

    Tori looks dreadful with the white hair and dark roots. She has really gone out of her way to make herself unattractive. Someone please talk her into toning down the over-bleached god-awful hair.

  • skeber

    From the older crowd: Rita Moreno…Regis Philbin…Jack Lemmon…Eddie Fisher…Debbie Reynolds…Zsa Zsa Gabor…Sophia Loren…

    • Newbie

      All very attractive people. I don’t see your point.

      • skeber

        They WERE attractive until they had plastic surgery and completely changed their looks. Plastic surgery destroyed their beautiful and handsome faces. That’s my point. That’s the point of the article.

  • tramky

    Tori Spelling?! Never attractive, now it’s just worked over.

    • Stephanie Reinheimer

      Indeed, she only got her work because of her daddy’s connections. She really has never been even faintly attractive, to put it politely.

    • Clairessa Mack

      I always thought she was gorgeous. before surgery, and even now. I think that’s a bad pic. That haircut is not flattering for someone with such a wide jaw.

  • Becky Lepine

    nose right tool is best work campare to plastic surgery because too risky and costly that’s why nose right is the best way to make nose smaller without any surgery and make up

    • Clairessa Mack


  • octogator

    There are a few instances in this “article” where the writer says something about how the surgery has made somebody unrecognizable from their hayday in the 70’s-80’s. Time probably did that. I’m unrecognizable from the 70’s and ive had no surgery.

    • Daniel Hill

      I think the difference is that Kenny Rogers was immediately unrecognizable after the face lift. He was always known for having sleepy, “bedroom” eyes, but when he walked out of the clinic, his eyes were pulled so tightly back that he looked like a cat trying to squeeze through a chain link fence.

      • Angela Padilla


    • leankat

      Hey speak for yourself, I had a girl I used to babysit for (30 years ago) approach me at a park in Bartlett.. I had no idea who she was, but she said I still looked the same (I didn’t believe her but she did recognize me out of the blue lol)

  • Linda

    Kathy Bates, Jack Nicholson are the best for older people they where asked would you ever have plastic surgery both said NO! Why on earth do people want to mess their setlf up so bad to stay young , Michael Jackson , Joan Rivers where nothing but walking candle stick with all that plastic surgery! PEOPLE GROW OLD NATURALLY, JUST SAY NO !

  • Daniel Hill

    Just a coincidence that they have the same last name, but the caption alongside the Vivica A. Fox picture is what I wish the Megan Fox caption had said, and is more fitting. Because there was absolutely no reason on earth for Megan Fox to have had any facial work done.

  • mersadeez07

    There is nothing wrong with Jennifer Grey, she looks awesome.

  • Nigel Jones

    Put quiet simply as a whole our society wants our actors to stay young forever, or at the very least to look young, there would be huge pressure on them all.Their face is at times the difference between getting work or becoming that actor whose name we cant remember.I aint saying its right but i can understand why.

  • Cheryl

    Megan Fox WTH? She was beautiful before.

    • Shamey

      If you were Megan Fox, why would you change anything? Maybe she had a verbally abusive partner or agent putting her down.

  • SuzyQZee

    I never thought Tori Spelling was all that beautiful in the first place, but then, that’s just me.

  • no name

    Barry Manilow- looks like Barbra Walters.

  • Evelyn Logan

    Some of these – like Kenny Rogers – just look like they’ve aged. Not much anyone can do about that.

  • Pamela K. Cahoon Laub

    You can’t ignore Dolly Parton. She is sweet and talented, but looks completely different than she did.

    • 1Verny65

      @Pamela K. Cahoon Laub – Dolly might look a lot worse at her age had she not had anything done….I think the beauty on the inside of her just makes her even more beautiful on the outside. I do impersonation of her and love impersonating her because I admire her so much….

  • TheRealTruthSerum

    Lara Flynn Boyle was hit? Not much diff before or after.

  • nonyabizzz

    OK, Axl rose really wasn’t that good looking, just sayin…

  • Bev Haut

    Robert Redford. His eyes went all Jack Lemoney.

  • Erik Isakson

    Wendy Williams

  • Farhorn Jones

    What about Shemp Howard, didn’t he have a cucumber installed in his nose?

  • Nana Berry

    Poor ol’ Kenny Rogers looks just like that idiot named Darrell that is on “Storage Wars”.

  • Kathleen Windas-Goodwin

    Mery Streep, Helen Mirren, and Sophia Loren are more beautiful naturally than all those people did with surgery.

  • Jade7171

    Some plastic surgery is fine and necessary. These are examples of people that over did it! People who get botox twice a year do not have frozen face. If you over do it, yes it will look horrible. Get a good plastic surgeon and do not have multiple procedures done…

  • Doug Lindemann

    Nothing wrong with Jennifer Grey the way she was. Any 14-19yr old male never forget her in Ferris Buelers day off and Dirty Dancing during those films day

  • Karl Stuber

    Pamela Anderson was just another pretty girl who would have looked great at 30.,40,50. But her plastic surgery brought her fame.

  • Laura Salovitch

    I kept waiting for Priscilla Presley and that lady who wanted more feline-appearing features (forget her name).

    • Linnster

      Jocelyn Wildenstein.

      • Laura Salovitch


  • Jackie Wicks Wilson

    You forgot Renee Zellweger. That was on the same scale as Kenny Rogers’s plastic surgery.

  • Guest

    Priscilla Presley – she was gorgeous . . . Hillary Clinton – improved


    I love her makeover surgery on the nose. She needed it done…Most Jewish girls I knew in high school had their nose done, just like braces were so common. Not a big deal. I did not like her with the old ugly nose. Good for Jennifer. She is a beauty now…And she stopped with just her nose. I love to see her in film now. So so pretty.

  • Alexis Karenin

    other celebs who ruined their looks with plastic surgery: Melanie Griffith, Pamela Anderson…

    • Linnster

      Melanie Griffith was on a couple of Hawaii Five-O episodes last season and looked dreadful.

  • UB2funny

    Lisa Rinna seems Pretty as a Person as well as a Lady. Class Act

  • Greg Dahlen

    folks might be interested in my diet, for about six years i’ve been living on fluid-milk-products, every day i drink about a gallon (3.5 liters) of skim milk and really hardly eat or drink anything else. it has been great for my health and weight, currently 6′ 1″ and 150, really think milk is the fountain of youth

  • julie

    Carrot top!!!!!

  • on2em

    I always thought Tori Spelling looked like a mans head on a woman’s body

    • Linnster

      Still does.

  • Brandon

    It is super easy to condemn these folks for those decisions, yet when people are in that industry and we’re constantly critical on them for their minor flaws…why are we surprised when they get insecure about it and go to extreme lengths? Every comment I read about a beautiful women that’s either had children or gained a little weight, men just degrade them to the point of no return. The same happens when they get a little older. Then, women get in on the action. Then, the press gets in on the action. Then shows like Fashion Police get in on the action. At some point, I’m surprised they don’t just kill themselves…oh wait…we have a few of those…don’t we? I am not surprised.

  • Betty Chang-Holtrichter

    Kenny Rogers is the most disappointing for me. As well as Pricilla Pressley! Why, just WHY?!?!?!!?

  • rick daniels

    To even suggest either Donatella Versace and Axel Rose were EVER even remotely attractive needs their eyes checked

  • eyelostmyname

    I just don’t understand why celebrities even think about plastic surgery? It just doesn’t make sense that people who are already celebrities should want to change what made them celebrities in most cases….their appearances.

    • San Diego Doug

      they all do it trying to REGAIN their exact same prior look, from years earlier.

      you would apparently be surprised how many celebs do it.
      there are hundreds or possibly thousands, that do it with very good results.

      many of the disasters in this article, had several successful surgeries in past, but then just kept going every few years, until they had completely ruined their faces.

      these freak shows that look horrific now days, like some shown in the article here, either went way overboard, or they had a bad doctor, or they just had bad luck & had an unsuccessful surgery.

      but there are tons of Hollywood celebs, that have very successful surgeries, all the time.

  • Linnster

    Why would Donatella Versace spend so much money to look like a Muppet?

  • LindaMC

    Miss Michael Jackson’s talent, not the weirdo he was, or pedophile he was and got away with it because he was who he was and rich.

  • DiamondDick1

    Donatella, just missing a hook….

  • KB White

    Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Manniston, Marie Osmond, Cindy Crawford, they all have.

  • The_Mick

    Some of the people weren’t good looking to start with, some -like Heidi Montag- look VERY good looking now, at least judging from the photos.
    It’s almost like the author(s) had an axe to grind with some of the selections and they were including for invalid reasons.

  • Tanta Mount

    is there anyone here who didn’t look better 20 years ago?

  • Bruce Wayne

    Rene Zellweger destroyed her classic natural good looks and became a plastic common unrecognizable figure !! Its very hard to look at her now. She was one of my favorites !

  • Linda Sills

    Some women are beautiful after the surgeries but they all look the same. They lose their individuality.

  • john carter

    My my my…how the Mob would have loved these cosmetic surgeons who would alter their features, and make them unrecognizable.

  • Cincinnatus

    My question? When these people look in the mirror (anti-surgery) what is it they see that might need improving? Next question: After identifying a distorted nose, a too-thin lip, a sticky-out ear, not puffy enough cheeks, whatever, what do they think can be done to correct it? Plastic surgeons that do reconstructive surgery on, for example, burn or accident victims usually will not do “enhancement” surgery and those that do are, in my opinion, quacks. Keep away.

  • Maren

    I’m really surprised to see that DonatellaVersace was actually pretty before all of that ugly plastic surgery. What in the world was she thinking?

  • charles rivera

    Donatella looked beautiful pre-plastic surgery! Why’d she do that to herself?

    • Newbie

      She was also about 30 years younger in the before picture.

  • lestrange131

    Why is it ok to bash these people but not transgenders? Maybe these people were just born with the wrong face and had to live with it for all these years? See how stupid that sounds?

  • Antonio E Angus

    I don’t know what to say, I don’t recognize the difference of their looks in some of them. I recognize when the picture before and after is shown side by side. Well, that’s what they wanted and I’m sure they were regretful afterwards.

  • Christopher Bowen

    MOST of their so-called celebrities I have never even heard of before. There are far more important celebrities who have done much MORE damage to themselves than the ones listed here. Has anyone seen Uma Thurman lately? I will admit, Kenny Rogers has got to be among the worst!

  • Barbara

    It’s kind of funny that there is an ad for plastic surgeons next to the pictures……….

  • Newbie

    What a mean article. Most of the women featured look absolutely beautiful, and any changes were due to age. I don’t see what the author’s point was, other than to meet a writing deadline or quota, or because they know some of the public likes to bash people so they feel better about themselves.

  • Debra Scott

    I just don’t get it. Donatella Versace was a beautiful woman. Did her severe drug use want her to commit murder on her face?
    And yes, Kenny Rogers and Mickey Rourke — Whom exactly are you trying to look like. Obviously, no one we know.

  • Debra Scott

    Oh, I forgot. Our dear departed Michael Jackson. Undoubtedly, a very mentally and emotionally haunted individual. No one has to say anything, he has done it all. And I do mean ALL.

  • A6K

    Megan Fox just looks like someone wearing a Megan Fox mask now.
    She had no reason to get any plastic surgery.

  • WhyMe

    Ahhh Michael Jackson didnt play as an alien in MIB2, he played himself. He said “I could be agent M.” Part of the joke was most of who you thought were aliens, Rodman, Oprah, were. Then its like, who MJ? Nah he’s human.

  • Lesliev1973

    Farrah Abraham……..Oh, wait! She just THINKS she is a celebrity. Still, she was cute before, now it hurts to look at her. The only reality “star” who looks ten times better after surgery is Snooki! Just my opinion.

  • Angela Padilla

    Don’t forget cher and percellia presley, and I notious Marie osben is pretty tight on her face…

  • Erika Cagliari

    Why is Michael Jackson on this list? The time to poke fun at his appearance has long expired and frankly ran its course long time ago. Go and pick on the living, Amber!

  • San Diego Doug

    when it is done well & in the right amounts, it definitely improves aging peoples looks.
    all the 40 something and older babes in Hollywood, like Jen Anniston, Heidi Klum, Giselle Bundchen

  • San Diego Doug

    when it is done well by a top quality surgeon, & in the right amounts, it definitely improves aging peoples looks.

    all the age 40 something and older babes in modelling & acting, like Jen Anniston, Heidi Klum, Giselle Bundchen, Selma Hayek, Stephanie Seymour, Elizabeth Hurley, Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta Jones, and many many more, have ALL done it & recd very successful results.

    most all the middle aged celeb men these days, that are still attractive, have also had work done.

    but the nightmare results start occurring, when the celebs either do too much, or too often, or too many times, or use a mediocre doctor that is not very good at his craft, etc.

  • San Diego Doug

    this article here, left several people off the list, that look very bad & different now days, after numerous plastic surgeries:

    Women: Melanie Griffith, Meg Ryan, Priscilla Presley, Joan Rivers, Wendy Williams, Cher, Goldie Hawn, Lil Kim, Joan Van Ark, & Jocelyn Wildenstein (the Cat Lady)

    Men: Bruce Jenner, Barry Manilow, Wayne Newton, Burt Reynolds, & Scott Thompson (Carrot Top).

    these above, are some of the very worst out there.
    ALL of them, are WAY worse, than several included in this article here.

  • Amypz

    Catherine Zeta-Jones and Julianne Hough, and were all pretty women before their surgeries; they’re not bad, but I liked them better before.

  • http://www.MollyRoxx.com Molly Roxx

    They all look the same. Some don’t even have before pics.

  • abqblondie2

    Tori Spelling was homely before and after. She’d never get a job if she wasn’t a Spelling.

  • Marty Hanson-Roscoe

    If I had to spend money to look like Tori Spelling, I’d just stay home with my original nose, black curly hair and my own breasts. For all the “beauty” those surgery bucks bought, the doctors should be sued for misrepresentation. It really is too bad her Father let her talk him into putting her on TV. She can’t act her way out of a plastic bag! Pun intended!

    Donatella Versace and Lisa Rena were never good-looking to start with, and they’ve just gotten uglier.

  • Kaydee D

    Uhh..what happened to adding Lil Kim to this list?? she shoulda been at No.1

  • hotbabyboomer

    Kenny Rogers look great in person. He looks like a grey haired 30 year old. NO ONE looks good when the cameras are all 12 inches away.

  • pd

    Michael jackson was not that good looking to start with, he should have been satisfied with the way GOD mad him to start with.

  • skeber

    Montag is disproprotionate with the many bodily parts added that are extreme in size. Lara Flynn Boyle ruined her face and it is evident in photographs.

  • skeber

    Burt Reynolds.
