Let us face it. Life is hard for every single person on the planet regardless of our differences. Even celebrities are not immune to the ravages of time. Every single one of us goes through the aging process, but it is true that they have access to certain things that the average person does not. It is fair to expect famous people to take care of their appearance better than most. Sadly, these photos show us that this is not always the case. Some of these people got botched surgeries, but others simply failed to age like fine wine because of genetics and substance abuse. On the bright side, they must be glad that wealth and talent do not disappear as you grow older.
Val Kilmer Then
Before he made it big as a screen actor, Van Kilmer worked on stage projects. In 1983, he made his screen debut when he landed a role in ABC Afterschool Special opposite Michelle Pfeiffer. However, his true claim to fame was starring in Top Gun with Tom Cruise. By the ‘90s, he was one of the biggest stars around. He won over ‘80s pop star Michael Hutchence for the chance to portray Jim Morrison in the Oliver Stone movie about The Doors. Aside from that, he impressed us in Heat. He was able to keep up with the likes of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro!
Val Kilmer Now
Other people think that his waistline has expanded too much, but we daresay that he looks good for his age. Sadly, it has been a long time since we saw him on the silver screen. He gained a sizeable amount of weight over the years, but he surprised everyone by turning it around. He took to Twitter to report that he has brought it back down to 165 pounds. His career is not over either. He has been starring in his own play, Citizen Twain. In 2012, he also brought home a Grammy. There have been rumors of a Top Gun sequel, so we can’t help but wonder if that has anything to do with his weight loss.
Sally Struthers Then
In All In the Family, Sally Struthers brought Gloria Stivic to life. The character was the child of Archie and Edith Bunker in the sitcom. Did you know that this role was meant to go to Candice Azarra, who was in the pilot episode? When she was dropped from the project, Struthers took over. As Gloria, we got to watch her put on blonde pigtails and a rebellious attitude. This was only the beginning of her career. She has since made a name for herself as one of the most popular TV actresses in the industry.
Sally Struthers Now
Even though she has not aged as well as possible, Sally Struthers kept landing one project after another. She is a long-time advocate of the Christian Children’s Fund, which is now called ChildFund. Aside from that, she helps children in need in developing countries. In 2014, she starred in the 50th anniversary production of Hello, Dolly!. If you watch South Park, you might remember that she was parodied in the TV show. The episode in question revolved around a starving kid and is called “Starvin’ Marvin.” It talked about how the actress overate, which contrasted with her efforts to help those who did not have anything to eat. Apparently, she was upset by the way she was portrayed on the show. We hope that she has kept her chin up despite the unfair and cruel portrayal of her.
Mickey Rourke Then
In 1982, Mickey Rourke launched his comedy career by starring in Diner. However, what really shot him to stardom was his work in Angel Heart and 9 ½ Weeks. It was clear that he did not mind taking on projects that dealt with taboo subject matters. They might be tame compared to what we now know, but they made him the sex symbol that he became. The same was true for his costars Lisa Bonet and Kim Basinger. In 1991, he left acting to focus on boxing instead since he used to box in his youth. After his retirement, he enjoyed a boxing career of three years.
Mickey Rourke Now
The actor landed a couple of minor acting roles in the ‘90s. After his time in the boxing ring, he made a comeback. Even though his sports career led to facial damage, he found steady work thanks to his acting chops. He was usually cast to play misunderstood misfits and tough guys. However, he only landed a big role in Sin City (2005). He gained even more critical acclaim for his performance in The Wrestler (2009). In fact, he was nominated for an Academy Award, a BAFTA, and a Golden Globe for it! He has gone under the knife several times in the past, which is how he has stayed so handsome.
Kathleen Turner Then
Back in the ‘80s, the biggest movies had one thing in common: Kathleen Turner. You might have seen her in movies like Prizzi’s Honor, Romancing the Stone, Peggy Sue Got Married, Body Heat, and The War of the Roses. With her sultry voice and smoldering good looks, she was the epitome of the femme fatale. She also got an Academy Award nomination and bagged a Golden Globe for Best Actress over the course of the decade. Did you know that she was the voice talent for Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Now you do!
Kathleen Turner Now
You may wonder where she might be nowadays. Well, like many other actresses, she eventually disappeared from the spotlight and focused on her own family. We are glad that her arthritis went into remission not that long ago. She was even able to make guest appearances in various TV shows! You might have seen her in Friends and Nip/Tuck in the past.
Rupert Everett Then
In 1984, Rupert Everett bagged a BAFTA for the role of Julian Mitchell in Another Country. It was fascinating to see him play a gay student in an English school during the ‘30s. He has made a name for himself by playing bad boys. We are sure that his good looks also helped him land role after role in the ‘80s and ‘90s. He also tried to transition into the music industry with the release of an album called Generation of Loneliness, but it did not see a lot of success. Most people probably have no idea that he was a pop musician! At any rate, he bagged a Golden Globe and another BAFTA for his role in My Best Friend’s Wedding in 1997.
Rupert Everett Now
The truth is that there is nothing wrong with how Rupert Everett now looks. It is just a matter of time. Obviously, it is not possible to look fresh-faced for the rest of your life. You would be glad to hear that he continues to act to this day. Did you know that he was in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Shrek, and Chronicles of Narnia? We also like the fact that he is outspoken about social issues ad politics. He has advocated for same-sex marriage and decriminalization of prostitution in the past. If you want to learn more about his life, you should check out his memoirs!
Lara Flynn Boyle Then
Twin Peaks survived the test of time as it remains a cult classic. The TV show by David Lynch revolved around the curious murder of a teenager called Laura Palmer and how it affected a small town. It was truly an iconic project! There were a lot of fascinating members of the cast, but we want you to focus on Lara Flynn Boyle. She was cast to play a character by the name of Donna Howard, who is a close friend of the victim that develops a fixation with solving the mystery. However, the actress chose not to appear in the reboot nor the sequel movie.
Lara Flynn Boyle Now
It is the natural course of things. When you grow older, people will no longer consider you a sex siren. Even so, Lara Flynn Boyle remains a beautiful woman in her middle age. She has gone under the knife in the past. We can see why actresses and other famous people would feel the need to get surgery. It must be hard to deal with all the pressure from the press and fans! At any rate, she looks amazing for her age.
Igor And Grichka Bogdanov Then
These French identical twins got their start in the ‘70s. Igor and Grichka Bogdanov worked as scientific TV presenters back then. However, their fame extended past that thanks to their personalities and social lives. However, this also made people question how legitimate their theoretical physics papers were. In the past, they stayed in the limelight thanks to their good looks. However, viewers could do nothing but watch as they started to dramatically alter their appearances in the late ‘90s!
Igor And Grichka Bogdanov Now
Towards the end of the millennium, Igor and Grichka Bogdanov developed an interest in plastic surgery. This did not stop when it should, however. They chose to undergo the same procedures so that they would stay identical no matter what. If you ask us, it is both horrifying and fascinating. Now in their 70s, this is what they look like. Reports claim that they got botox, fillers, and chin and cheek implants. Whoa.
Geena Davis Then
We have another famous lady from the ‘80s! Geena Davis was hot stuff and made it big after starring in Beetlejuice and Thelma and Louise. These movies shot her to superstardom. There was a time when you could hardly go a day without finding the actress and her ex Jeff Goldblum on the tabloid front pages. The two of them starred in the remake of The Fly. She was also in Cutthroat Island, which was directed by her other ex, Renny Harlin. Fun fact: the film was only made so that it could boost her career some more. Sadly, it ended up sinking it instead. Too bad.
Geena Davis Now
To tell you the truth, Geena Davis still looks great. Can you believe that she is now in her sixties? In this photo, she was leading the gender equality campaign of the Women’s Sports Foundation. Even though she has not exactly retired from acting just yet, she spends more time on her advocacies. She has created an institute that looked at gender roles in media. Did you know that she almost made it to the Olympic team for women’s archery in 1999? Say what you will about her, but she is certainly a cool lady.
Axl Rose Then
Hard rock was flourishing in 1987, and Guns ‘n’ Roses had been one of the biggest acts in the genre at the time. Axl Rose was the name of the lithe man who could command an entire arena. Their album “Appetite for Destruction” sold over 30 million copies across the globe. It was followed by “Use Your Illusion,” which sold 35 million. At the time, Axl Rose gained a reputation for his vocal range and bad behavior. He would throw bottles at fans and incite riots! Things went downhill for the band due to their personal differences. After going on a long hiatus, they released “Chinese Democracy.” Sadly, it flopped.
Axl Rose Now
When you do not work, it is easy to resort to comfort eating. This was the fate of Axl Rose, who used to be lean in his youth. As time went on, he started to gain more weight. Oh well, we all know that rock ‘n’ roll loves excess! However, it looks like he started chowing down on Taco bell food to replace all the booze. We are glad to report that he has been doing better since then. In 2016, he fronted for an AC/DC tour. Aside from that, his original band has since reunited. We can’t wait to see what they do next!
Jackie Stallone Then
If you are familiar with Jackie Stallone, we bet you know her through her sons Sylvester and Frank. Even so, she was more than just another celebrity parent! She made a lot of appearances on the small screen in the past. In 2005, she appeared in the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother. It was not rare for her to be in front of the cameras, so we can see why she would want to invest in her looks. Over the years, she had undergone a number of plastic surgery procedures for this very reason.
Jackie Stallone Now
Who can blame her for trying to hold onto her youth? Sadly, we can see why some people think that she went overboard with the operations. She herself allegedly said that it felt like one of the operations had been “botched.” For one thing, her lips look a bit overinflated in this photo. If this ever happens to you, know that this will go down in due time. Sadly, she passed away in her sleep at the age of 98 in 2020.
Mark Hamill Then
It is hard to think of a sci-fi franchise that is more iconic than Star Wars. Mark Hamill made it big by playing Luke Skywalker in the movies. His success, however, was not always good when it came to his career. There was apparently a producer who once said this to him: “I don’t want Luke Skywalker in my film.” It was an iconic role, which turned out to be a double-edged sword. We are glad that he was able to land voiceover roles as well. In the past, he played the Joker in the animated version of Batman.
Mark Hamill Now
After becoming one of the biggest stars of his time, we bet he did not mind doing off-screen work. As a voice actor, he could afford not to take care of himself too much. We are sure that his car accident after the first Star Wars film did not help. Did you know that they used his real scars from the crash in The Empire Strikes Back? The actor was able to reprise his iconic role thanks to the sequel trilogy. Apparently, he was told to work out and reclaim some of his former glory. If you ask us, it is clear that he was able to do all that and more! Good for him.
Catherine Bach Then
In the ‘80s, Catherine Bach became known as a sex symbol for her portrayal of Daisy Duke in Dukes of Hazzard. Does the name of her character sound familiar to you? This might have to do with the fact that short denim pants were named after her. We doubt that you can get more iconic than this. At the height of her career, there was a rumor going around about how her legs were insured for a million bucks. This is pretty funny, but we can’t imagine how much pressure that would put on anyone. In the movie version, Jessica Simpson took over the role of Daisy Duke.
Catherine Bach Now
Sadly, her career started to go downhill after her time on Dukes of Hazzard. Who knows? Maybe she was unable to find more projects because she was typecast to play characters like that. It is also possible that she already did everything she wanted in the industry and simply preferred to focus on her children. At any rate, she has only taken on minor parts since the show came to an end. She also launched a jewelry line with Debenhams, a company in the United Kingdom. We are sure that she had a tough time when Peter Lopez, her ex-husband, died in April 2010.
Jocelyn Wildenstein Then
There was a time when Jocelyn Wildenstein was a very attractive woman. The New York socialite used to be one of the loveliest women around. She would often travel the world and even became a pilot and expert marksman along the way. A lot of people also knew her for spending her money as if it was nothing. She used to pay more than $60,000 per year in personal phone calls. Aside from that, she had an annual wine bill of over half a million bucks. Saudi Arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi had been the one to introduce her to Alec Wildenstein, the aristocratic art dealer who became her husband.
Jocelyn Wildenstein Now
Can you believe how different she now looks? It is not exactly uncommon for women to look into plastic surgery when their looks start to fade. But that was not the case for this woman. Jocelyn Wildenstein developed an addiction to plastic surgery and drastically altered the way she looks. There are plenty of unkind people who would say that she now resembles Frankenstein’s monster. In the New York social scene, she has become known as “Catwoman.” A lot of people use her as an example of why you should not get plastic surgery. A Vanity Fair interview revealed that she is of the belief that lynxes have the most gorgeous eyes. According to her friends, her ultimate goal is to look exactly like the wild cats!
Boy George Then
You might not know that the real name of Boy George is George Alan O’Dowd. He used to be a part of the Culture Club in the ‘80s. Malcolm McLaren, the manager of the Sex Pistols, discovered him when he was nothing more than a club kid with wild behavior and eccentric style. Songs like “Time (Clock of the Heart),” “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me,” and “Karma Chameleon” had millions of sales. A lot of their success can be credited to his look. He liked to dress in his uniquely androgynous and colorful way.
Boy George Now
Sadly, it started to go downhill after the band broke up. In interviews, Boy George later revealed that the cause of the split had been the end of his relationship with the drummer of the band Jon Moss. Aside from that, the group also dealt with heroin addiction and the death of the keyboard player. It came to a head when he imprisoned and violently assaulted a rent boy. Boy George spent some time behind bars and has been trying to make a comeback. These days, he is busy designing clothes, writing books, taking photos, and writing songs. His recent musical work has gotten acclaim for its humility and honesty.
Cybill Shepherd Then
In Taxi Driver, Cybill Shepherd earned the attention of the public. But what truly made her a star was her performance as Maddie Hayes in Moonlighting in the ‘80s. She played the owner of the declining detective agency that Bruce Willis eventually turns around. On the screen, the two of them had palpable chemistry. The series enjoyed a run of four years and enjoyed international fame. Did you know that the two of them thought of going out with each other but ultimately decided against it? They did not want to compromise the show in case things go awry. What a responsible thing to do. When the actress talked to Access Hollywood, she explained, “I said, ‘We shouldn’t,’ and then he said, ‘We shouldn’t,’ and so we didn’t… We worked so long together, it was probably better not to.”
Cybill Shepherd Now
You know what they say: nothing lasts forever. Even though she remains attractive, she no longer has the sex appeal that she used to. She continues to act to this day. Perhaps you see her in The Client List, The L Word, Psych and Criminal Minds. In 2015, she was also in a 2015 movie called Do You Believe? In it, she played a mother who was grieving the death of her daughter. She has three kids in real life. One of them happens to be an actress as well.
Caitlyn Jenner Then
A couple of years ago, Caitlin Jenner was just another person we got to see on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It starred her, together with Kris Jenner and sisters Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, and Kendall. We got to meet all their romantic interests and friends as well. Over the years, the program has gained a huge following. She has been on a number of TV shows in the past as well. Perhaps you remember her from The Weakest Link and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here.
Caitlyn Jenner Now
Apparently, Caitlin Jenner was not happy with the way she looked in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here. A source close to her said that the reality TV star felt like a mess without her typical routine. At any rate, it is a good thing that she now feels comfortable in her own skin. She told the Daily Mail, “It takes a little longer to get ready but now I can be myself all day.” We are so happy for her!
Bruce Willis Then
It makes sense for us to talk about Bruce Willis as well. Did you know that he kicked off his career by starring in off-Broadway shows? However, most people know him best for playing John McClane in the Die Hard movies. Aside from that, he has starred in other movies like Sin City, 12 Monkeys, The Sixth Sense, Looper, and Pulp Fiction. He has seen a lot of success in terms of his career. In 1987, he tied the knot with Demi Moore. Sadly, it ended in divorce thirteen years later. They have three daughters and remain friends to this day.
Bruce Willis Now
There is no need to worry because he is not going anywhere. In 2015, he made a stage comeback by starring in a production of Misery. Prior to this, he also reprised his role in Good Day to Die Hard in 2013. Sadly, it turned out to be a commercial and critical flop. In recent years, he has expressed his support for Israel and the U.S. invasion of Iraq. At the moment, he is married to a model by the name of Emma Heming, with whom he has two kids. He has yet to show any signs of slowing down!
Kelly Le Brock Then
Ever since she made her debut, Kelly Le Brock has shown us that she is a true star. She starred opposite Gene Wilder in The Woman in Red. We are not surprised to see that she would be a natural. After all, she had a model for a parent! What made her a household name was her role in Weird Science, a hit teen flick in 1985. In the photo, she played a fantasy woman built by two teens. The movie was a bit problematic, but it was awesome to see a strong woman help turn them into real men.
Kelly Le Brock Now
Her life has gone through its fair share of ups and downs. However, it seems clear that the height of her career is no longer around. She was once married to Steven Seagal, but they got a divorce in 1996. The two of them have three kids together. She has since been linked to the homeopathic movement. In fact, she was among the first owners of a hyperbaric chamber in the United States. It is used to treat various ailments from infections to air bubbles in the blood. She is also a children’s cancer charity spokesperson.
Chuck Norris Then
We are sure that you have seen the memes, but do you really know who Chuck Norris is? The martial arts star has been immortalized in photos that say stuff like “Chuck Norris will never have a heart attack. His heart isn’t nearly foolish enough to attack him.” In his youth, he was considered a heartthrob. He had a lot of female fans who swooned over his acting skills, good looks, and martial arts skills. When it comes to the silver screen, he was in Walker, Texas Ranger and Way of the Dragon.
Chuck Norris Now
If you ask us, we would say that Chuck Norris did not age but hardened! He remains active in Hollywood and recently starred in The Expendables. Aside from that, he is a devout Christian who has written a number of tomes on the religion. When it comes to his politics, he is a Republican. In the past, he supported Mike Huckabee and pours a lot of time and money into the political party. He has a personal fitness column on WorldNetDaily and did infomercials for fitness products as well. If you want to keep up with him in real time, you will be happy to know that he actively uses social media.
Whoopi Goldberg Then
Fair enough, it would not be very accurate to call Whoopi Goldberg a sex symbol. She made a name for herself with her acting skills and great personality instead. In the past, she has received 13 nominations at the Emmys. She is an EGOT winner, which is a great achievement. In The Color Purple, she played an abused black woman in the South. It gave her the breakthrough that she needed. The actress also became a pop culture phenomenon thanks to her role in Ghost! In the past, she starred in movies and TV shows such as Hollywood Squares and Sister Act.
Whoopi Goldberg Now
It is true that she has gained a couple of pounds since the height of her career. A lot of people said that this has to do with her smoking habit, which leads to the munchies. To be fair, just about everyone gains weight as time passes by. While she still acts every now and then, she now focuses on her LGBT activism instead. She started the “Give a Damn” campaign, which aims to convince all the members of the community and straight people to come together in the name of equal rights and lives. What an icon!
Wayne Newton Then
This singer is one of the most popular performers from Las Vegas, Nevada. As a young man, he was quite the star. His hit songs such as “Years” and “Daddy, Don’t You Walk So Far” even reached the Billboard Top 100 chart, but his most famous song is none other than “Danke Schoen.” We bet that you would be familiar with it since the truck was used in the ‘80s hit movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. He had fans like Lucille Ball, Bobby Darin, Danny Thomas, Jack Benny, and George Burns. Wow.
Wayne Newton Now
In terms of his personal life, the times have been hard on Wayne Newton. On top of that, it does not help that his waistline has gone up several sizes. His finances are in a state of disarray as well. In the 2000s, he spent a lot of time in court due to allegations of financial mismanagement. In 2012, the singer finally declared bankruptcy. He has since returned to his old house after coming to an agreement with the creditors. Things are not as bad as they could be, however. After all, the man also known as “Mr. Entertainment” continues to work with charities that aim to fund diabetes research.
Linda Evans Then
At the start of her career, Linda Evans played Audra Barkley in a Western TV show called The Big Valley. This was not her big break, however. What made her a household name was her portrayal of Krystle Carrington in Dynasty, which earned a viewership of 20 million Americans. She played the character for nearly eight years. Thanks to the show, the actress was nominated for a Golden Globe for five consecutive years. She also made an appearance in the reunion special of the show: Dynasty: Catfights and Caviar. In 2009, she ended up winning Hell’s Kitchen.
Linda Evans Now
This is another case of plastic surgeons who could have done a better job. We bet that Linda Evans now wishes she simply skipped the operations and aged naturally. In 1971, she graced the pages of Playboy and dazzled us with her good looks. As she started to get older, she decided to go for a quick-fix remedy and sought the help of a medical professional. When you go under the knife, it is always possible that things will not go the way you wanted them to. We are sad to report that this was the case for her.
John Travolta Then
We are sure that you know who John Travolta is, but you probably had no idea how his career began. He made his debut in a TV show called Welcome Back, Kotter. In the ‘70s, he saw even more success when he was cast to star in Grease and Saturday Night Fever. It helped that he was young, attractive, and talented. Millions of girls across the world put up posters of him on their walls! In the ‘80s, his career took a hit when he could no longer land starring roles like he used to.
John Travolta Now
A lot of people would say that he went from heartthrob to a big hunk. His career picked up again in the ‘90s, mostly thanks to Pulp Fiction. Sadly, he was unable to look as good as he once did. This happens to the best of us, so it is not exactly the end of the world. The actor simply gained weight and lost some of his hair, no biggie. Sadly, John Travolta has received a lot of criticism for the way that he looks. Aside from this, there was also the controversy surrounding an alleged affair with his former pilot.
Goldie Hawn Then
In 1969, Goldie Hawn landed her first major role in a movie called Cactus Flower. As the suicidal fiancé of Walter Matthau, she also bagged the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress. She is probably best known for her comedic performances, especially in Private Benjamin. She won yet another Academy Award for this project. This talented woman has enjoyed a career that has spanned a couple of decades. In the past, she also starred in Butterflies Are Free, First Wives Club, and Death Becomes Her. She has been with actor Kurt Russell since 1983.
Goldie Hawn Now
To be completely fair, Goldie Hawn is a senior citizen now. It is difficult for anyone to stay a stone-cold fox after a certain point in time. We are glad to hear that her relationship with Kurt Russell is still going strong. She spends a lot of her time running the Hawn Foundation. It aims to improve youth academic performance. The foundation likes to focus on scientific research to improve learning strategies in the field of education. Kate Hudson, her granddaughter, clearly inherited her good looks. We are sure that the younger woman would ask her for advice once she reaches a certain age!
Edward Furlong Then
From the very beginning, Edward Furlong has shown us that he has what it takes to be a star. He was a Teen Idol winner and cast to play John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. In American History X he played a skinhead and received acclaim for it. He has been in a number of different films and shows such as American Heart, Detroit Rock City, The Green Hornet, A Home of Our Own, and Pet Sematary Two. In the ‘90s, he kept acting but saw mixed success. He released an album that was only released in Japan.
Edward Furlong Now
The truth is that he has gone through a lot of challenges in the past. His career started to decline as his substance abuse issues got worse. In October 2000, he checked into rehab at last. “I was a heroin and cocaine addict. It was really scary. I don’t even think about [partying] anymore. It seems lonely now: running and clubbing and doing coke. I have nightmares about doing hard drugs,” he shared. We are glad that he is in a better place now. However, his past issues clearly took a toll on his appearance.
Janice Dickinson Then
There are a lot of women that people refer to as the first supermodel. Janice Dickinson is one of the contenders for this title. She has even released a memoir called “No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel” to back up her claim. At any rate, it is hard to deny that she was a great beauty. In the ‘70s and ‘80s, she made waves in the fashion industry as a model. In 2003, she also appeared in America’s Top Model to offer advice to people who were trying to make it big in the industry.
Janice Dickinson Now
While she has been on TV and runs a modeling agency, it looks like she still misses her glory days. This will definitely explain why she has gone under the knife as well. Sadly, this turned out to be an awful idea. The surgery was so bad that you might not even recognize her. She was even in an episode of a TV series called Batched! It involved the experts on the program trying to fix it. In March 2016, the model found out that she has breast cancer. We are glad that treatment has been going well for her.
Johnny Depp Then
This famous actor made his screen debut in Platoon, although it was only a small part. He got his big break by starring in a dark romance movie called Edward Scissorhands. With his youthful good looks and acting skills, it was only a given that he would become a big star. He has seen a lot of success in Hollywood. Aside from that, he has been romantically linked to the likes of Kate Moss and Winona Ryder in the past. He has two kids with Vanessa Paradis, a French model he used to date.
Johnny Depp Now
He might be a big star, but nothing is to be done about aging. Trust me, it is going to come for all of us. Johnny Depp continues to land various projects in Hollywood, but this has more to do with his acting skills instead of his good looks. In 2012, he was the best-paid actor. Three years after that, he officially became a Disney Legend. At this point in time, his films have raked in over $7 billion. We are sure that you have also heard of all the legal drama that has been going on with his ex-wife, actress Amber Heard.
Elsa Patton Then
We got to know Elsa Patton thanks to the The Real Housewives of Miami. She was such a popular person on the show that she even earned a spin-off series. Called Havana Elsa, it was also produced by the Bravo network. It was tragic when it was canceled after Mama Elsa fell and got injured. They say that she suffered a brain injury after the accident, which took place in her very own home. In this photo, you can easily see that she used to be a very pretty lady. What does she look like now?
Elsa Patton Now
The plastic surgeons have struck again. We are sad to report that her efforts to stay lovely backfired on her. Marysol, her daughter, said that she got work done on her eyelids in the ‘80s, but it “gave her hematomas on her eyes for like three years.” This is too high a price for anyone to pay in the name of beauty. These days, more people know Mama Elsa for her botched surgeries than her good looks from her glory days. According to Marysol, the surgeries made her mother look like a totally different person.
Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart Then
This is probably the wealthiest entry on our list! Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart, also known as the 18th Duchess of Alba, made headlines when she spent as much on her nuptials as the Queen of England did on her wedding. She has always been beautiful. Aside from that, she also earned a reputation for her dalliances with a number of men. Did you know that she also happens to be the most titled noble on the planet right now? In 2011, she made it to the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame by Vanity Fair.
Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart Now
Even towards the end of her life, she was still going through men! At least, that was what the Spanish tabloids said. However, it sounds plausible that they were not going after her for her good looks. It is a good thing that Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart took care of that. She was married to her final lover from 2011 until her passing. He did not get a single penny in the will even though he assumed that he was going to be a very rich man after her death. She was survived by six kids and nine grandchildren.
Suzanne Somers Then
Do you remember Chrissy Snow from Three’s Company? Suzanne Somers was the actress who brought the character to life in the American version of Man About the House. It is strange that it went on for eight seasons when the original show only had six. Anyway, she starred in it alongside Jack Ritter and Joyce DeWitt. It remains a fan favorite. Apart from this, she also played Carol Lambert in Step-by-Step. She is a great actress, but her good looks certainly helped as well.
Suzanne Somers Now
How is Suzanne Somers doing these days? Well, she still looks good. In fact, one might even say that she looks a little too good for someone her age. She has denied allegations that she went under the knife, but we find it hard to believe. In fairness to her, she has always advocated for alternative and holistic medicine. Who knows, maybe she found the foundation of youth as she did the research for her books! She has beaten cancer twice. It was after the first round of treatments that she went down the holistic path.
Nicole Eggert Then
Even when she was a young girl, Nicole Eggert was already stunning. After all, she finished with honors during the Miss Universe petite division. She was only five years old at the time! However, what made her a true star was her role in Baywatch. The actress was meant to be a part of the spin-off series of the hit TV show, but it was canceled in the end. Before she appeared in the TV show, however, she also played Jamie Powell on a sitcom called Charles in Charge alongside Scott Baio.

Sadly, both her fame and good looks started to fade once Baywatch wrapped up. She has appeared in plenty of reality TV shows in the past. You might have seen her in Splash, which focuses on celebrity diving. It was said that she got injured while working on the show, but she has denied it. Aside from this, she also worked in various Lifetime productions. These days, she has been busy operating her very own ice-cream truck. She does not just own Scoops, but she also drives it!
Lil’ Kim Then
Born Kimberly Denise Jones, Lil’ Kim started to rap when she was still a teenager. In 1995, she got her breakthrough by working together with the Notorious B.I.G. and Junior M.A.F.I.A. At the time, she had only been 19 years old. From then on, she and Biggie started an on-again-off-again relationship that only ended when he passed away in 1997. Her debut album is called “Hard Core” and came out in 1996. It had a lot of #1 hits, so we are not at all shocked that it went double platinum as her other albums did.
Lil’ Kim Now
“It’s like the more money we come across, the more problems we see.” This is a line from “Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems,” a Notorious B.I.G. song. It looks like this was true for Lil’ Kim, who was propelled to fame and saw the pitfalls that naturally came with it. She has seen a bunch of legal and financial issues ever since she made her debut in the music scene. One of the most drastic changes would be the plastic surgeries that she has gotten. It is hard to believe that this is the same woman we loved in the ‘90s!
Donatella Versace Then
This Italian fashion icon serves as the Vice President and head designer of the Versace Group. It is easy to recognize her long blonde hair and tanned skin. On top of that, she has a great sense of style that has earned her plenty of fame and success in fashion. Versace clothing is worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, January Jones, Cheryl Cole, Angelina Jolie, Blake Lively, and more. This old photo shows Donatella and her brother at a party in the ‘90s. Gianni Versace was an iconic designer himself!
Donatella Versace Now
A lot of things have changed since that previous photo. Donatella Versace has paid for a lot of plastic surgeries, but some think that she went too far. In fact, there are folks who call her the “human waxwork.” Some of the top plastic surgeons have inspected her recent photos and believe that she got a facelift and heavy lip injections. The blonde eyebrows do not improve the state of her appearance either. She has never really liked the natural look, so it is possible that she is happy with the result. She once admitted that she had Botox, but she mostly says that her skin and hair benefit from “tonnes of cream.”
Courteney Cox Then
By starring in the music video of “Dancing in the Dark” by Bruce Springsteen, Courteney Cox made waves in Hollywood. She is best known for playing Monica Geller in the hit sitcom Friends. She remained good friends with her costar Jennifer Aniston. Every now and then, the two of them are spotted together! The actress went on to star in projects like Dirt, Cougartown, and Scream. In 1999, she got married to David Arquette. They have a daughter by the name of Coco. Sadly, the two of them decided to lead separate lives in 2013.
Courteney Cox Now
Not that long ago, Courteney Cox appeared in Running Wild with Bear Grylls. The actress was rather candid as she talked about going under the knife to retain your youthful appearance. She has said that she took it too far in the past: “I have done things that I regret, and luckily they’re things that dissolve and go away. So, um, that’s good, because it’s not always been my best look. So, now I just have a new motto: ‘Just let it be’.” It was sweet to hear Grylls tell her that she is naturally beautiful and had no need for cosmetic procedures.
Joan Van Ark Then
This American actress is best known for playing Valene Ewing on a hit TV show called Dallas. After that, she appeared in Knot’s Landing, the spin-off show, for 13 seasons. She received two Soap Opera Digest Awards for her portrayal of the character. She went on to appear in other projects such as M*A*S*H, Bonanza, The Six Million Dollar Man, and Love Boat. In 2013, she joined the cast for the reboot of Dallas. She has also served as a voice actress in Archer and a judge in RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Joan Van Ark Now
People were shocked when they saw what Joan van Ark now looked like. We agree that she looks very different. She is now a senior citizen, but anyone with eyes will notice that she has gone under the name. Dr. Anthony Youn is a plastic surgeon who talked to National Enquirer about what he thinks of her current appearance. He said, “I suspect she’s had at least one facelift, if not two, causing her neckline and jawline to look tight. Her forehead is smooth and wrinkle-free, a possible consequence of a brow lift and Botox.”
