Some stars are naturally photogenic, but many are not. Here's a comprehensive list of celebrities whose faces left us questioning what they've had done -- and why?
Tatum O’Neal seen wearing a waitress uniform on the set of ‘Squirrels to the Nuts’
Tatum O’Neal: Now filming Squirrels to the Nuts, Tatum looks like she’s storing some nuts in her own cheeks! As RadarOnline.com recently reported, the 49-year-old Oscar winner’s face looks drastically different in recent photos taken while she was on the movie set. Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated Tatum, told Radar he believes she’s had numerous treatments, including injections, Botox and chemical peels. “The amount of fullness is impressive. I suspect that she may have undergone injections of fat into her cheeks, which can occasionally balloon,” Dr. Youn said.
85th Annual Academy Awards – Arrivals
Renee Zellweger: The actress caused a stir at the Academy Awards this year with her startlingly frozen face and squinty eyes! “Was Renee Zellweger blinded by the bright lights or by too much Botox?” asked plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the actress, 44. “I suspect that she underwent Botox injections to her forehead, causing it to look extremely smooth and even shiny. Her cheeks may also have been plumped with an injectable filler like Juvederm.”
Priscilla Presley: Last year, during the opening night of the Million Dollar Quartet in Hollywood, Elvis’ former bride’s face looked all shook up! “Even though her face appears to have settled down a bit in the past few years, she still has a waxy appearance to her face,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthoy Youn, who has not treated Priscilla, told RadarOnline.com. “Her skin looks pale and excessively smooth for a woman her age,” he revealed about the 68-year-old actress. “I suspect that she has undergone several cosmetic treatments, including Botox, filler injections, and maybe even a facelift. She is a natural beauty who would look better with less, not more procedures.”
Hunter Tylo: The soap opera icon, 51, has starred on The Bold And The Beautiful for more than 20 years, but now, her face looks like a puffy pillow! Last year, when Hunter walked the red carpet at the 52nd Monte Carlo TV Festival, she was almost unrecognizable. “Hunter Tylo appears to have had some Bold plastic surgery, but has it made her less Beautiful? Her lips look like they’ve been inflated to massive proportions, possibly from excessive injections of fat,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, told Radar. “Her cheeks also appear overly plumped, possibly from fat injections as well. Her face is excessively smooth, too smooth to be natural, in my opinion. I suspect that she’s undergone hefty doses of Botox to look this way.”
Jackie Stallone: Jackie, now 91, has become as famous for her odd face as being Sly Stallone’s mother! The Stallone family matriarch, who recently survived a heart attack, admitted she’d had too much plastic surgery, saying she looked like “a chipmunk with a mouth full of walnuts.” Jackie blames too much juvederm, a cosmetic filler that plumps up the face.
Ashley Judd: Last year, the Missing star appeared to have some over-the-top plastic surgery on her face. As Radar reported, she went from pretty to puffy, and plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn commented, “Ashley Judd’s wrinkles are Missing. I am flabbergasted that she appears to have changed her face like this.” Her hamster-cheeked look was apparent on The Marilyn Denis Show in Toronto, Canada. “I suspect that she’s had a good dose of Botox in her forehead to smooth it and injections of fat into her cheeks to plump them up,” explained Dr. Youn, who has not worked on Ashley, 45.
Janice Dickinson: The former supermodel, 58, hasn’t been shy about admitting to plastic surgery, saying, “There’s no such thing as too much.” Janice has said in various interviews she’s had a brow lift, collagen injected to smooth facial lines, and used Botox extensively. Last year, new photos of Janice showed she may have had even more work done! Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the reality TV star, told RadarOnline.com, “I believe she’s undergone pretty much every facial plastic surgery there is, including a facelift, eyelid lift, lip injections, Botox, fat injections, and a brow lift.”
Taylor Armstrong: The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is known for her enormous lips, and celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn told Radar she’s overdone the injectables. “Not only is she missing the cupid’s bow of her upper lip, but her upper lip is slightly larger than her lower lip: a classic mild trout pout,” Dr. Youn , who has not worked on the reality star, 42, said.
Brandi Glanville: Earlier this year, a website implied that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills beauty, 40, had new plastic surgery, posting, “I wish she would stop messing with her face.” But Brandi cried foul! The reality beauty, who in the past has admitted to a boob job, vaginal rejuvenation, and facial fillers, tweeted to the online scribe, “I haven’t done anything new to my face cept have some moles lasered off. Its just me and the B (botox).” But Dr. Anthony Youn (who hasn’t treated the star) said she has either “undergone too many injectable filler treatments or she’s undergoing an allergic reaction, causing her face to look puffy.”
Lil Kim: What’s wrong with the rapper’s face? “I think it’s painfully obvious that Lil Kim’s had some work done, and she does look pretty darn odd,” plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn wrote on his blog, celebritycosmeticsurgery.com, about her look last year at the Rip the Runway show. “Her nose looks like it’s been whittled down to the width of a popsicle stick.” Dr. Youn—who has not treated the 39-year-old--also believes Lil Kim has undergone filler injections.
Marie Osmond: The entertainer’s plastic surgery appears to have settled in, but in late 2011, RadarOnline.com reported that Marie’s ever-changing face had sparked plastic surgery speculation. After observing photos of Marie at the 2011 Hollywood Christmas Parade, Dr. Anthony Youn said, “Marie appears to have undergone a startling transformation. Her eyebrows are excessively arched, likely from Botox injections. Her lips resemble the classic ‘trout pout’ where the upper lip is excessively plumped in comparison to the lower lip,” he explained, adding that it may be from Juvederm injections. Dr. Youn has not treated Osmond, 53.
Suzanne Somers: In 2011, fans were alarmed about Suzanne’s pillow-faced appearance on a talk show. Encino-based plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Persky (who has not treated the star) wrote on his blog, “It appears that she has had a great deal of volume placed into her face. The most likely procedure is injection of fat (also called fat transfer, as well as the more trendy term ‘stem cell facelift’).” Somers, 66, who hawks the FaceMaster, a non-surgical facelift machine, has denied having any plastic surgery.
Lisa Rinna: The former Melrose Place actress has become the poster child for big bad plastic surgery lips. She told the Today show she’d had silicone injections in her upper lip. It got hard and she had to have steroid injections to the lip to soften it up. But earlier this year on Kathie Lee & Hoda, Lisa, 50, said she’d had most of the silicone removed.
Jocelyn Wildenstein: The socialite, now 72, famously underwent plastic surgery to replicate the big cats her then-husband loved. Although Jocelyn has never said what she had done, Dr. Anthony Youn wrote on his blog in 2007 that he thought Jocelyn had: a brow lift to create the overly arched eyebrows; Botox in the forehead, frown lines, and crow’s feet to eradicate wrinkles; upper and lower blepharoplasty to remove bags under the eyes; canthopexy to elevate the corners of the eyes, giving them the ‘cat-like’ appearance; fat grafting and/or cheek implants; midface lift, elevating the cheeks, which are now too high; lip plumping injections, likely silicone; facelift; and chin augmentation. Dr. Youn has not treated Wildenstein.
Melanie Griffith: Encino plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Persky wrote on his blog, "Melanie Griffith has had her share of bad plastic surgery and fillers over the years." Although Dr. Persky actually thinks Melanie "is returning to normalcy," her lips still look alarming. "Melanie's lips had been filled with something permanent, which created an imbalance, her upper lip being much larger than her lower lip," wrote the doctor, who hasn't treated the actress, 55.
Mickey Rourke: The Wrestler star told The Daily Mail in 2009 that he got some cosmetic surgery to fix the toll years of boxing took on his once-handsome face. “Most of the surgery was to mend the mess of my face because of the boxing, but I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together,” he said. Last year, Mickey had some additional surgery to try to rectify the botched job. Dr. Michael Persky wrote on his blog that, in his opinion, Mickey, 60, had “a premature, poorly performed facelift many years ago.” He has not treated the actor.
David Gest: Liza Minnelli's ex-husband (and the late Michael Jackson's concert promoter pal) has a look sure to raise eyebrows! Encino-based plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Persky wrote on his plastic surgery blog that he believes he's had "poorly performed" eyelid surgery, known as blepharoplasty. The Encino doctor has not treated Gest, 60.
Carrot Top: The 48-year-old comedian with the frizzy red hair has remodeled his face, in the expert opinion of Dr. Anthony Youn. The plastic surgeon, who has not treated Carrot Top, says he has "an excessively arched brow possibly due to a combination of Botox and a browlift. His face looks extremely smooth as well, and may be the result of laser treatments or chemical peels."
LaToya Jackson: Michael Jackson's sister's nose is most alarming to Dr. Anthony Youn. In his blog on celebritycosmeticsurgery.com the plastic surgeon commented, "It appears to have been overly thinned. Nostrils can take an unnatural shape like she has when an aggressive alar resection is performed. This is a procedure where the bottoms of the nostrils are cut out to make the nostrils smaller and the nose thinner. It can create an appearance where the nostrils appear pasted onto the face." Dr. Youn has not treated LaToya, 57.
Burt Reynolds: The Smokey and the Bandit movie legend looked frail and sunken-eyed—but also appeared suspiciously wrinkle-free—when he accepted the “Alpha Male” award at Spike TV's Guy's Choice Awards in Los Angeles this June. Reynolds has admitted to eye surgery, but claimed his smooth skin came from good genes. Dr. Anthony Youn has written, “It appears as though he has had an old-fashioned, skin tightening facelift. The face ages in a 3 Dimensional fashion, with both sagging skin AND loss of volume. The traditional facelifts like the one that Burt appears to have had focus only on tightening the skin (performing only a 2 Dimensional surgery, not 3-D). This can make someone’s face look thinner, tight and pulled.” Dr. Youn has not treated the 77-year-old actor.
Donatella Versace: The fashion designer, 58, regularly makes the list for freaky celebrity plastic surgery. Dr. Michael Persky weighed in on his blog, drpersky.com, saying the very thought of Donatella actually scares other people from having plastic surgery! “Her facial volumization with fillers and/or fat is exactly what keeps many patients away from ever stepping inside a plastic surgeon’s office,” wrote Dr. Persky, who has not treated the designer.
Jennifer Westfeldt: The actress and Mad Men star John Hamm’s longtime girlfriend looked suspiciously pillow-faced at the Golden Globe awards earlier this year. “Her cheeks look puffy and chipmunk-like—sculptra injections in her cheeks?” Dr. Anthony Youn wondered in his blog, celecosmeticsurgery.com. He has not treated Westfeldt, 43.
Joan Van Ark: The Knots Landing star’s face has taken on a Michael Jackson-like appearance! And in Dr. Anthony Youn’s opinion, after looking at photos of Joan from 2012, “She appears to have had a browlift and upper blepharoplasty, creating the ‘hollowed out’ appearance to her upper eyes. Her nose looks thinner and shorter, possibly from a rhinoplasty. Her lips also appear augmented, likely from Restylane. In addition, her neckline is almost impossibly sharp for a 64 year old, and can be the result of a facelift. Her cheeks are somewhat puffy, possibly due to facial fat grafting. Finally, her skin has a smooth, waxy sheen. This can be caused by a combination of Botox (forehead), Juvederm (frown lines) and chemical peels or laser treatments.” Dr. Youn has not treated Van Ark.
Chyna: The former pro wrestler Chyna (born Joanie Laurer) resurfaced in 2012 with a completely different look, as RadarOnline.com has reported. The 42-year-old now has a pillow face! The professional fighter’s face looked horrendously distorted when she attended the Gold Gala benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS last year. “Chyna’s face looks like a bloated version of itself,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who hasn’t treated the star, told Radar. “It appears that a cosmetic surgeon plumped it up beyond recognition, likely with injections of fat or other facial filler. To say it looks overdone is an understatement.”
Lara Flynn Boyle: Last year, Radar reported that the actress, now 43, barely resembles the beauty who once dated Jack Nicholson. “Lara Flynn Boyle’s face looks like it’s melting,” celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. After many years of plumping, “Now her face looks like it’s deflated, with resultant loose skin,” revealed Dr. Youn. “I suspect that she’s either undergone corrective surgery to reverse some of the work that was previously performed, or has just plain allowed the plumping fillers to dissipate, leaving her with sagging cheeks.”
Madonna: In late 2011, Madonna’s face looked its fiercest yet,as RadarOnline.com reported. “The Material Girl looks like her face has been completely buffed, polished, and smoothed,” celebrity plastic surgery Dr. Anthony Youn, who has not treated the star, said in an exclusive interview. “She has less wrinkles now than she did 20 years ago! Her face appears to have been plumped up with fat, tightened and tucked with a facelift, and smoothed with multiple treatments. Her eyebrows are elevated and arched, possibly due to a brow lift.” Dr. Youn also said Botox has likely taken care of the 54-year-old Madonna’s frown lines.
Lindsay Lohan: Talk about duck face! The Mean Girls actress, 27, was spotted at an event in Los Angeles last year with overplumped lips. “Lindsay’s lips look like a pair of Kielbasa!” Dr. Anthony Youn marveled to RadarOnline.com, referring to sausages. Dr. Youn, who has not treated Lohan, said,“They appear to have been recently plumped up with a filler like Juvederm, making them look like she’s suffering an allergic reaction.”
