Being an actor, both male and female, is not always as glorious as most people think. TV and movie industries are no strange subtly forcing celebrities to stay young, or at least look young and in certain way, otherwise acting gigs are hard to come by.
People who made their Hollywood breakthrough when they were young probably would find it easy to land acting roles year after year during the first or second decade of the career.
As they become older, however, filmmakers and TV producers start to look for fresh talents. Aged actors are slowly phased out in favor of their younger better-looking counterparts.
The older actors, in an attempt to get back to the spotlight again, often turn to plastic surgeries. There have been mixed results; some actually look better, while others must suffer unflattering consequences.
It doesn’t always happen to all actors, but it happens every now and then to some, nonetheless. Most (but not all) actors in the following list have had cosmetic procedures done, and many of them don’t even look like themselves now.
10 Angelica Houston
No one can deny that Angelica Huston is an award-winning female actor with a long Hollywood career that spans to more than 50 years now.
She received acclaim for her portrayals of Grand High Witch in The Witches and as Morticia Addams in The Addams Family, among others roles. She also appeared on TV shows like Medium, Smash, Transparent, and more recently Angie Tribeca.
While she is the same person all along, her appearance throughout the years seems to be evident to the contrary. That being said, her cosmetic procedures must have been not bad at all, because she is doing much better that most other actors from her generation.
9 Olsen Twins
When we found out that Michelle Tanner of Full House was actually portrayed by the Olsen twins, we liked the character better and adored the twins even more. But that was decades ago before the Olsen twins decided to turn to plastic surgeries to improve their looks.
Many people didn’t think it was a necessary move because Full House was such a hit that the twins had books and movies deals following the fame of the show.
There has been rumors that the plastic surgeries were for the Olsen twins to assert a little bit of independence from each other. Now they don’t look identical at all, and some of their photos in the last decade are somewhat chilling.
8 Matthew Perry
Of course we know and love Mathew Perry from his role as Chandler Bing in Friends.
Apparently Perry had problems maintaining healthy bodyweight during the show, yet thankfully co-star Jennifer Aniston helped him with the struggle, and all turned out well for Perry, at least for a time.
It appears that he has the same problem again these days. He is disappearing under fats and rumored to have had plastic surgeries done. He still is an active actor today playing Ted Kennedy in The Kennedys: Decline and Fall.
7 Courtney Cox
While we’re on the subject of Mr. Bing, we might as well talk about Mrs. Bing too, portrayed by none other than Courtney Cox.
During and after her days as Monica in Friends, Cox was known for getting cosmetic procedures.
But Friends was an extraordinarily popular show, which means people have been watching closely at all the actors, male and female, even after the show ended long ago.
It does not take a hardcore fan to notice the unflattering transformation Cox has gone through over the years. She has also admitted some regrets over it.
