When you’re a child star, you don’t need to worry about your appearance too much. Make-up will take care of anything that your youthful exuberance doesn’t. After all, it’s not like you’ve got any wrinkles that need sorting out, is it? But Hollywood and audiences at home kind of expect the aging process not to affect famous people. So when kid stars grow up, they feel pressurized to keep looking fresh and young and supple. So it’s no surprise to learn that a lot of them end up going under the knife. Cosmetic surgery is very common among the rich and famous. Let’s check out the most shocking examples of former kid stars having the ol’ nip and tuck, shall we?
Disney star Amanda Bynes sensationally revealed that she’s had a series of ‘amazing’ procedures to ‘remove webbed skin between the eyes’. The former child star, who is known for her partying lifestyle, has even ‘fessed up on her Twitter account that she has also had a nose job. Bit weird considering that she didn’t have a big nose. And now looks a lot worse than she did before she had plastic surgery!
You can clearly see that Jenelle Evans has augmented breasts; those puppies aren’t real. Rather obviously. She looks to have gone a little overboard on the cosmetic surgery front. The Teen Mom 2 star is just one of many celebrities to receive lip injections, leaving her looking like a bit of a fish. The ol’ trout pout can totally ruin a pretty young girl’s face, can’t it? And this is a brilliant example. Silliness.
Now we’re talking about A-List Hollywood stars, we’re looking at the upper end of the spectrum. No dodgy trout pouts or botched boob jobs here with Star Wars: The Phantom Menace and Black Swan star Natalie Portman. Her work is expensive and excellent. You’d barely notice. She’s had botox injections, a couple of nose jobs and even cheek implants. But hey – she still looks good, right?!
From cute little teeny pop star to out-and-out sex goddess, Ariana Grande’s transformation is quite something. But is it all natural? Well, the singer denies that she’s ever gone under the knife. But the pictures appear to tell a different story. Sure, some of her look can be put down simply to the aging process, but we’re certain that Ms. Grande has had a nose trim. So, yeah. We’re calling her a liar. Albeit a hot liar.
Earlier this year Kylie Jenner’s lips went viral. Why? Well, because they’d clearly been boosted. She claimed for a long time that her new mouth was just the result of clever use of lip liner. Yeah, alright! She only admitted it after her big sister Khloe Kardashian. Apparently they are ‘temporary’ lip fillers, so don’t expect to see them plastered onto her face forever. Well, do. But just not that size.
It might not be instantly obvious that the singer Fergie – real name Stacey Ferguson – from The Black Eyed Peas has had work done… But when you take a peek at her from when she was younger? You notice that she looks almost nothing like how she used to! It’s weird, isn’t it? We don’t know exactly what nips and tucks she’s had, but we think it’s a fair few. Still, she doesn’t look like a monster, so it’s all good.
Remember Saved By The Bell? Sure you do. And the smartmouth Lisa Turtle? Well, the actress who played her, Lark Voorhies, looks NOTHING like she did back in the old days. In fact, she’s had so many cosmetic procedures that she’s now unrecognizable from her young self. So much so that, according to rumors, none of her former co-stars knew who she was at a recent Saved By The Bell reunion!
While we’re on the subject of NBC’s hit 90’s teen sitcom Saved By The Bell, let’s have a quick look at the actress who played Jessie, Elizabeth Berkley. She went on to court some controversy when she was cast as a stripper in the Paul Verhoeven flick Showgirls. But as for plastic surgery? Rumors have been abound for years that the rangy actress has had a few nips and tucks here and there. What do you reckon?
Christina Aguilera has been famous since she was a little girl, thanks to Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. But as she gets older, she’s had to fight getting older. After all, the pop world doesn’t like wrinkly faces, does it? So it’s no surprise that the Genie in a Bottle hitmaker has turned to plastic surgery to bolster her looks and smooth out her skin. Not to mention trim down her nose.
Here we see former beau of Andre Agassi (and, apparently, Michael Jackson – yeah, really…), Brooke Shields. She got famous early on after bagging a role as a young teenager in The Blue Lagoon. But years later? The years have been kind, but she still looks older. So it’s no huge surprise to learn than the former model favors the odd Botox injection from time to time.
Tori Spelling, daughter of television tycoon Aaron Spelling, bagged a role in the original Beverly Hills 90210 series back in the day. Not for her acting ability or looks, particularly. Most people agree that a little nepotism played a part. Anyway, it’s clear to anyone who has eyes that Tori has had a whole array of cosmetic procedures carried out. Just look at her face.
Tina Yothers played Jennifer Keaton on the hit NBC series Family Ties. Now you can’t quite make out how big her nose was to grow just by this picture of her as a kid. But as she grew up, so did her hooter. At aged eighteen, she sought out a plastic surgeon to do something about it for her. And had a nose job. And from the evidence? It’s a pretty decent job. Good work, Tina’s doctor!
The youngest ever Oscar winner, Ryan O’Neal’s daughter Tatum O’Neal, picked up her statuette for her role alongside her father in Paper Moon. Now she’s older, she does look good for her age. But it’s not good genes. She can thank cosmetic procedures and fat injections in her face to keep her looking nice and young. She gets them quite a lot and is, according to reports, addicted…
We’ve seen some nice examples of top quality cosmetic procedures helping out Hollywood’s ladies in their quest to stay young looking. But that’s not the case here with Melanie Griffith. She’s had work done over the years and, not to be unkind, she doesn’t look all that good, does she? Her man Antonio Banderas has aged a whole truck load better than she has. The poor girl.
This is Kyle Richards. Despite her name, Kyle – as you can see – a woman. And a woman who likes to have plastic surgery. You’d never have guessed to see the young actress in Little House of Prairie that she’d grow up to be a a cosmetic surgery fiend. Still, that’s what happened. And she *does* look pretty good for her age. You gotta admit it!
