We’re not going to pretend to be even remotely surprised that most Hollywood celebrities have had some form of plastic surgery. In fact, it’s pretty much a requirement that, to be a mainstream actress, you have to have a very specific type of face. What is surprising, however, is the number of starlets who clearly look like different people than they did when they were starting out, and who refuse to acknowledge they’ve had any, uh, alterations.
Sure, there are famous folks who own their affinity for plastic surgery (ahem, Heidi Montag and Joan Rivers), but for every one of those, there are 100 others who keep their (collagen-filled) lips zipped on the topic.
Obviously, landing in Hollywood means you have access to the world’s best plastic surgeons, most of whom are adept at tweaking a star’s visage just enough to make them look like a more attractive version of their God-given selves. Translation: Not everyone gets brand-new faces, but rather a thinner nose here, a chin implant there, an ever-so-slight brow lift—the list goes on.
Here, we’ve highlighted 23 celebrities who all seem to have some work done. Granted, many have aged or thinned out which indeed can contribute to facial changes, but if you really turn a critical eye to their actual features, you might start to see that all 23 look quite different than they once did.
