At the end of the day, even the best plastic surgeon can’t stop their clients from aging, and the following celebrities prove it. Apparently, these celebrities don’t put much stock into aging gracefully, because their current situation is anything but.
The good news for Mickey Rourke is that he still has a full head of hair, which is uncommon for men of his age. The bad news is we aren’t quite sure what he is doing with it, if he wants to be a samurai, or if he has heard of facial moisturizer.
From heartthrob to middle-aged bum, we aren’t sure what happened to Brendan Fraser but we know it isn’t good. On the bright side, we are pretty sure NO ONE recognizes him while out in public these days.
Joan Van Ark
Once stunning, Joan Van Ark is a lesson to all Hollywood celebs of what can go wrong when you lean into plastic surgery just a bit too hard. We shudder to think what her skin must feel like at this point.
Frankly, we aren’t really sure how Keith Richards is still alive after decades of hardcore drug use and partying. In a way, he looks like the undead, and we bet most nights on stage he feels it as well.
She may be the reigning princess of one of the top fashion brands in the world, but between the bad lip job and the sunken eyes, she looks more like something out of Area 51.
We aren’t sure what happened after Home Alone to result in this monstrosity, but Macaulay needs an intervention stat. From his weird rantings to his actual appearance, this guy needs a conservatorship much more than Britney.
We know Caitlyn Jenner hasn’t had a lot of time to learn the art of makeup, but it’s almost like she’s deep in her tweens just learning how to apply makeup. Her hair, however, is remarkable.
Does being a Scientologist mean you can’t correct a botched plastic surgery? Asking for a friend, because Kirstie Alley has seen better days and is now the epitome of one hot mess.
Is it Chevy Chase or Chubby Chase, because these days it is really hard to know. At the moment, Chevy is working on a third chin, so we really feel like he needs to stop while he is ahead.
Pamela Anderson, once the icon of perfection, has taken a turn for the worse as her fake makeup, Botox, and hair extensions seem to be expiring against her. She’s paying her stylist far too much for what she’s getting.
Billy Crystal has one heck of a receding hairline and one painfully shiny rounded forehead. Maybe his next film role should be the moon because frankly, that is all we can think of when looking at him.
Let’s face it, Steven Tyler was never by any means attractive, so it should come as little surprise that he is aging to look like a baboon. Actually, when you consider the man’s history it kinda fits.
Val has clearly turned to food for comfort in his later years, and the results are not pretty. Triple chins are never a good look, and it is surprising that he can’t manage a better diet given he can afford a personal trainer if he wanted.
Once a Hollywood darling, Sophia Loren now looks like something out of a drag show, and not the good kind where you are blown away by the pageantry of some of the men.
The problem with old John Travolta is that he doesn’t look old, in fact, he looks more like a wax statue of himself due to his pale skin and completely plastic face. In this case, less really would have been more.
Either Jocelyn Wildenstein got stung by a dozen mad hornets or she escaped from Area 51, because this person bears very little resemblance to her former self. We can guess how she ended up bankrupt.
Morgan Freeman never seemed too concerned about his looks, but really, for a man that has played God four times and President three times, vanity seems well… a bit vain.
It’s no secret that Johnny Depp has been very openly self-destructing over the last few years, but seeing just how hot he looked next to how creepy he looks now makes it an even tougher pill to swallow.
Matthew Perry was never a knockout, but the Friends superstar looks every bit of the failed sitcom star now as he basks in the glow of being a one-hit-wonder.
We know she’s been spending most of her time trapped in miserable conservatorship, but you’d think along the way someone would have ordered a better makeup artist (or some Botox).
Goldie Hawn had her day, but that day is now long gone. We hope that Kate Hudson is paying attention to her mom’s face and going a bit lighter on the plastic surgery so she doesn’t share the same fate.
While no one is probably going to call Meg Ryan a fox anymore, the starlet is still actually doing okay for a middle-aged woman. She’s not in the J.LO category of middle age, but aside from some wrinkles is managing to age with grace.
Very few people are probably still calling her Lil’ Kim, but if the star is happy with who she is then who are we to judge. We have to say, outside of the weight gain she still looks pretty darn good.
One thing we have always loved about Jim Carrey is that the star is transparent and not concerned with stardom. We would wager to say that is probably why – unlike other Hollywood megastars – we can actually see him age.
Yikes is the simplest thing to say at first sight of this photo. Either Russell Crowe is training to be a wizard in his next film or his newest cause is to save the world from plastic razors.
Steven Seagal is originally from Minnesota, but he seems to think that he is a Minnesota Kingpin in this picture. Either way, we feel like he could use a little help from wardrobe now and then.
The Queen of pop needs to learn a few things about self-care because from the look of things, she is self-destructing over time. At this rate, things don’t bode well for her once she hits the big 6-0.
Frankly, we don’t understand how people thought he was hot 60 years ago, so it’s understandable that he is certainly not hot now that he is a septarian rocker. He still has a full head of hair, though, and that’s pretty remarkable.
La Toya Jackson
While we do think that she needs to work on this hairband, given how harshly some of the Jacksons have aged, we think that LaToya Jackson is actually not looking too bad.
Once a British supermodel, we can only guess that Kate Moss was having an off-day when this shot was taken. From the wrinkles to the bad eyeliner, we suggest asking her makeup artist for a few tips.
Once the steroids run out there is truly nothing left, and Sylvester Stallone is a pretty good example of that. The Rocky star now looks like life has thrown a few punches his way.
While we all like to remember sweet Lindsay from her days as a child actress, the Lindsay of today looks like she was had a few too many all-nighters, and it shows in every nook and cranny of her face.
Transitioning from a movie star to the governor of California is not the easiest, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is solid proof of that. He has aged a few decades over the last ten years.
Once a young temptress, Kelly McGillis is one of the few Hollywood stars who seem content to let aging take its place. In a world of plastic, Kelly has settled into older age with a surprising sense of comfortability.
Truth be told, Al Pacino looks more like a Godfather than he ever did back in his early days. We’d love to see an updated film with him recast in his old role as an aging mobster in the modern world.
On Friends, Matt LeBlanc played a character prepared to eat just about everything, and given how much he has broadened out in his later years some of that may have been art imitating life.
Oh, girl, it is time to get out of the tanning bed and stop with the lip treatments. Even Barbie looks better than what Shauna has done to herself.
Sarah Jessica Parker
We aren’t quite sure Sarah Jessica Parker would have ever been considered hot if she didn’t play a sex columnist on HBO, but we are quite sure she doesn’t meet any standard of hot now.
The shirtless look isn’t quite as effective once you become a man with a saggy chest and wrinkles as far as the eye can see. Iggy Pop looks more like an iguana than a pop legend in this photo.
We thinks that Babs maybe went a little crazy with the lip plumper, we also think she needs to pick a more natural hair color. There’s so much going on in this swollen face that nothing is working in her favor.
It hurts to age – just ask Brigitte Bardot, who is far past her golden days. We wonder if anyone has ever told her that they make hair dye, because addressing some of that rat’s nest up there might be a good start.
Once cute and dark, now Edward Furlong is darker and strung out. We suggest he cut some of that hair off if he isn’t going to wash it, and perhaps rethink the goatee which isn’t doing him any favors.
Sally always had a girl next door look, so it’s probably not too shocking that she now looks like the mom next door: the jolly mom on the street everyone loves because she always has a fresh pie and words of wisdom.
Paul Stanley has always had a pretty face, but as he ages, that pretty pout and those odd, perfectly-angled eyebrows make him look more like a creepy uncle than a musical superstar.
We can still see those smoldering eyes and perfectly parted lips under the aging that has turned Kathleen Turner into an aging grandma. Clearly, she isn’t trying to maintain a perfect image at this point in life.
It’s hard to believe that Janice Dickinson was the first supermodel, given how she has let herself go later in life. We suspect it’s a mixture of not caring and plastic surgery gone terribly wrong.
Out of everyone on this list, we actually don’t think Ozzy looks too rough all things considered. In fact, we believe the star has had some fillers because there are almost no wrinkles on his face and, given his lifestyle, we know there should be a few.
She burst onto the Hollywood scene in the 80s fresh faced and with a mane of dark hair. But sometime in 2021 fans believed she has had work done after making an appearance during Paris Fashion Week. Some thing she is now unrecognizable and looks nothing like herself of old.
Once upon a time, Miley Cyrus was a sweet little girl, but it’s hard to even see a passing resemblance to the teen star who is now one big mess all over.
As one of the most iconic gay men of the ’80s, we don’t understand how Boy George so easily adopted the skinhead look, but we certainly don’t like it. He’s creepy now but in a totally different way.
We didn’t expect much from a lady who once wore a trash bag to an awards show and called it fashion, but Courtney Love looks so painfully swollen here we have to look away.
Let’s face it, no one expected Gene Simmons to age gracefully, so in reality, this isn’t as bad as it could be. We suspect he dyes his hair, though, because there is no way he has lived his lifestyle without a few gray hairs.
Teri Hatcher has always had a sultry look about her, and you can still see it here in her deep brown eyes, but unfortunately, they are lined by a lot of wrinkles and creases that are a bit shocking to see.
Let’s start with the creepy soul patch, which someone needs to attack with a razor right now. Then let’s finish with the undereye circles and questionable choice of clothing. Of course, pretty much everything about Ted Nugent is questionable.
Kelly LeBrock should be the new spokesperson for what can go wrong if you don’t choose the right plastic surgeon for the job. Her lip job is horrendous, and all of the wrinkles around her stretched smile prove that even Botox isn’t magic.
Oddly enough, we actually think Carrot Top looks a little better now than he did in his before picture. However, when the bar is set that low it isn’t too hard.
Renee Zellweger is one of the few Hollywood actresses of the ’90s not to be embroiled in a scandal (unless you count marrying Jim Carrey), but she definitely had a lot of work done because she hardly resembles herself anymore.
Compared to the sudden decline of some of the heartthrobs on our list, Leo isn’t doing too badly, but it is clear that he has put on some weight and has a bit of a receding hairline. Those piercing eyes, however, are just as perfect as ever.
Robert Redford is the original heartthrob of the 21st century, but it’s hard to see that now as his boyish smile is hidden behind years of wrinkles and an almost reddening skin tone.
Salma Hayek is one of those people who never seems to age. We aren’t sure why she is on this list, because if we looked like her in our 50s we would be pretty content.
Jamie Lee Curtis
In all honesty, Jamie Lee Curtis was never that stunning, but her role in True Lies gave her license to turn on a bit of sex appeal. Sadly, that is all but gone now, but we give her major props as one of Hollywood’s smartest stars.
Clint Eastwood is no young cowboy anymore, and anyone who sees him in modern times would know that in a second. He could use some hair gel now, though, because that comb-over doesn’t quite have the same effect unless he is going for puffball.
Nick Nolte is definitely one of those stars who doesn’t have to worry about security because it is a safe bet that no one recognizes him these days. His overall look here could easily be described as “homeless.”
Somebody needs to tell Nikki Cox that the goal of plastic surgery is to look better than when you started. Things are just a bit too tight on her face now, not to mention those bloated lips.
We aren’t sure what to say here, except maybe lose the neck chains and try to act your age, because rebellion doesn’t look so great on a 50-year-old.
At one point in Katie Price’s career, she was a cute little vixen, but then she jumped on the crazy plastic surgery train and derailed somewhere along the way. The phrase “au natural” needs to enter her vocab before it’s too late.
For a while, it seemed like Brad Pitt never aged, but apparently being married to Angelina Jolie and having half a dozen kids can put some wrinkles on your face and age a man.
Anthony Michael Hall
It’s been a long time since Sixteen Candles, and it shows in Anthony Michael Hall, who now looks more like a suburban doctor more than the not-so-secret crush of teenagers everywhere.
The force hasn’t treated Mark Hamill too well, as the actor known as Luke Skywalker for pretty much the rest of his life has not aged easily. Somewhere under that beard is Mark, but he isn’t coming out.
We wonder if Neil Young knew just how prophetic his song “Old Man” would be when he wrote it. It may be time for him to lose the hat because it makes him look just a bit more senile.
Has anyone told Richard Gere that you can indeed buy hair dye? It would do him wonders to put down the silver shampoo and darken his tone up a little.
Jack Nicholson has always had a sort of ethereal quality about him, which made his psychological films even more thrilling. However, now his vibe is straight creepy neighbor next door and we can’t help but shudder.
Men in Black II star Lara Flynn Boyle has said she felt she was in her prime at 32 and was “not looking forward to ageing”. We can see why.
Davis discussed various run-ins she’s had with ageism in Hollywood revealing she was denied a role because the leading man said she was too old, even though the actor was older than her.
Catherine Bach is a renowned American actress known for insuring her legs at a whopping $1,000,000. Guess she made it in time!
Cybill Shepherd is having a good cry. “Grandma is a crybaby these days,” says the actress, who at age 72 doesn’t hide her emotions.
Nothing compared to Bruce as John McClane, his hard-pressed alter ego in the Die Hard films. We think those were his best days.
Kelly Le Brock
On-screen siren Kelly LeBrock can still WOW us at age 62. All she needs is some good clothes.
Chuck recommends exercising four times a week for at least 20-30 minutes. It serves as one key to increasing longevity and preventing aging. Good thing he shared his secret!
Whoopi Goldberg said she doesn’t have to worry about aging unlike other actors in Hollywood: ‘My stuff’s going to sag and fall and I will be fine’
Newton established himself as one of Las Vegas’s most popular and highest-paid performers. Maybe the best days are gone but we’d love to hear him sing soon.
Sure, plastic surgery can aid the aging process, but it can also go horribly, horribly wrong – just ask Elsa Patton.
Suzanne Somers, 75, Says ‘Aging Can Be so Incredible if You Know How to Approach It’.
We would still love for Nicole to run past us at the beach!
Courteney Cox is comfortable in her skin. In fact, the Friends star is looking forward to turning 60. Good for her!
Melanie Griffith, 63, proves she just gets better with age as she looks youthful in workout clothes… after 45 years in show business.
Drew Barrymore, 47, Says She’s ‘Never Subscribed’ to the Pressure to Look Young. Confidence looks good on you Drew!
At 63, Andie Macdowell Says She’s ‘Never Felt More Beautiful.
“I think aging is something that you either have to decide that you like it or you don’t. It’s a choice”, said Andie.
Penélope once said – “Journalists have been asking me, since I was, like, 22, ‘Are you afraid of ageing?’ That is such a crazy question for a 22-year-old girl or, for that matter, for a 42-year-old.” And we agree!
It seems fitting that an actor who established herself as a sensitive, unnerving talent in independent cinema has found a similar home in niche beauty. We should borrow some tips.
Your Forties Are Your Sexiest, Most Powerful Decade. And Kate sure proves that!
Diane Keaton still looks terrific at age 71, in part because her iconic style never gets old. Learn from her!

French is comfortable in taking a no-pressure approach when it comes to watching her weight and wouldn’t mind a weight gain if it happens. To emulate Dawn French’s perspective, perhaps it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to try being more carefree in our pursuit of healthy living.
