Being famous is accompanied by a lot of smiling in front of a lot of cameras, and the world's most famous stars always make sure that they give themselves the best possible shot at looking good - or they risk being haunted by ugly photos for the rest of their career. Whatever the industry, be it music, movies, or showbiz, they all know the importance of putting an attractive smile on your face, whatever the cost.
Check out how Madonna, Cher and these celebs went to all lenghts in order to achieve good looks.
Madonna Doesn’t Mind the Gap
Even though the gap may be smaller now than it used to be, this ultra-famous performer hasn't parted with her trademark tooth gap. It is, after all, an idiosyncratic attribute of her aesthetic. It’s not to say that Madonna hasn’t had any improvements done on her teeth.
She had some minor work done to straighten them out and make them less stained and evenly white. The way in which she has lived her life authentically being Madonna has inspired many in the world to do the same.
Miley Cyrus Looks Super Friendly and Fun
Miley Cyrus has a presence that can fill up a room and her warm, toothy smile is no small part of what makes her so attractive and unmistakable. She may have been graced with a naturally gorgeous grin, but her teeth haven’t always looked as good as they do.
When she decided to pursue a career in music after many years of starring in the teen sitcom Hannah Montana, she had to take measures to radically reinvent her look from a child star to a sleek young dame. Her dental work involved getting braces, then bleaching and veneers to get her teeth straight, uniform, and shiny white.
The Pretty and Polished Emma Watson
In her role as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, Emma Watson doesn’t appear on screen with her own teeth on display. As a child, her teeth showed signs of damage and were a little jagged, and dull. That is clearly no longer the case. These days she carries a smile that could knock someone off their feet from 100 yards.
Whichever wizard she went to for her veneers did a superb job of it. The bleaching and alignment are perfect and fit her face exactly as they should. This sort of work would be far beyond the price range of your average person, but fortunately for Ms. Watson, her acting earns a good sum.
Tom Cruise Appears to Be Devilishly Charming
Tom Cruise is practically unrecognizable as he looked before spending some serious time in a dentist’s chair. All we can see in the picture on the left is a horrendous set of teeth.
As a member of a gang, a criminal, and a mechanic, Tom’s natural teeth were a great fit. But after they wrapped up filming The Outsiders, he elected to make a change to get cast for a wider variety of roles. He initially got braces to get all his teeth in a row and some bleaching then built up to veneers. He definitely looks less dodgy.
There Is a Classic Beauty in Kate Beckinsale
She has been very candid about having had work done on her teeth, and why shouldn’t she be? It's not that kate Beckinsale has ever been unsightly in her life, but her smile lacked some of her finesse. She had some tissue cut away to lift her gum line and some bleaching to get her teeth evenly glowing white.
Then came a set of dental veneers crafted specifically for her pretty mouth. If they are of high quality and receive the right attention they can be maintained for two decades. Of course, teeth like these have an exorbitant price tag and must have been unpleasant going in, but just look at how lovely she looks.
When David Beckham Wasn’t All That
The name David Beckham practically makes girls go weak at the knees, but there was a time when this football star didn’t have quite such a refined appearance. It took no small amount of tooth tweaking to turn this football hooligan into a house husband.
It’s plain to see which is the “before” photo. Beckham used to have some seriously crooked chompers. He got them straightened out, veneered over, and bleached up, bright-white. The improvement to his appearance is astounding.
Leann Rimes Had to Fight for Her Smile
For most people, getting nice teeth is simply a matter of having money and marching yourself into the office of a reputable dentist. For Leann Rimes, it was a little more complicated than that. After every procedure she had done since the ‘90s, it seems like she’s been unhappy and it has resulted in at least one lawsuit.
Her decision to get veneers and crowns resulted in 30 surgeries and at times got in the way of her singing. It seems like this lady truly understands the meaning of the old saying, “Beauty is pain.”
Demi Moore Is One Stunning Woman... Nowadays
We can’t imagine how intense life would need to get for your front teeth to fall out of their own accord, but that’s what happened to Demi Moore. The fangs that managed to stick around weren’t looking so hot, as they were not at all even, with major discoloration.
After treating herself to the dental work she deserves she emerged in the millennium as a smoking hot femme fatale. She looks fantastic for a woman close to 60, and it doesn’t hurt that she has all her teeth.
Cristiano Ronaldo Is Such a Humble Rich Boy
We’re not sure whether “rags to riches” is applicable here, but the point we’re trying to make is that the man has done well for himself in his soccer career. His aesthetic now reflects his earnings. Before he became one of the world’s wealthiest soccer players, his smile was not nearly as appealing.
His teeth looked a little scary, and it cost him a small fortune, a considerable amount of time in the company of an excellent orthodontist, getting some teeth pulled, having the rest straightened with braces, bleaching, and eventually veneers to get to the desired result we see today.
Nobody Has Style Like Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani made a tough call when she decided to get braces after her teenage years had come and gone. Her teeth weren’t naturally as straight as she wanted them to be. But she couldn’t stop there.
Beyond getting braces, to obtain the level of perfection she demands from everything with her name on it, she also had cosmetic dental surgery and veneers done. The resulting sparkling white, perfectly straight teeth are the ideal complement to her “dead but delicious” aesthetic.
Taylor Swift Has Such a Sweet Smile
Taylor Swift is one of the few people in the world who was born with a smile that looks like it belongs on a magazine cover. But having good luck and excellent genetics apparently don’t shelter you from wild dental incidents as you go about living your best life, as Taylor found out in 2013.
While performing, she bashed the microphone into her mouth, chipping one of her front teeth. While unsightly and probably embarrassing, it was an easy enough problem to fix by putting in a crown, and hopefully, she has restrained herself from chomping on any further sound equipment.
Matthew Lewis Certainly Picked up Some Magic
This bloke went through adolescence with a smile that could make paint bubble, but what a babe he has turned out to be. His role as Neville Longbottom in Harry Potter may have been how broke through into the world of acting, but he looks very different post-puberty.
There won’t be any type-casting in his case. The set of veneers he has these days replaced some scraggly looking teeth that were misshapen and all seemed to veer off in different directions. Definitely a great career call.
Cher Is the Most Glamorous of Them All
It’s no secret that Cher is an advocate of doing what you need to do to look your best. Nowadays, many excellent specialists can reverse aging to the point that the Timekeeper himself wouldn’t know the difference.
The diva shared her thoughts on social media, for the benefit of those considering getting some dental work done. Her preference is for veneers rather than crowns, and she has the experience to back it up. She has clearly made some good calls on whom she could entrust with her teeth, and the results are grand.
Nicole Kidman Is in a Different Class
Nicole Kidman is another example of a dame who keeps exuding more grace and jaw-dropping beauty as she has aged. With the aid of some tasteful and brilliantly executed cosmetic surgery and dentistry, she accentuated her already striking features to the point that one simply cannot look away.
It’s plain to see that investing in veneers was hugely beneficial for Nicole. They allowed her to even out the line of her smile, making her face look much less drawn and more symmetrical.
Niall Horan With the Most Genuine Smile
Niall Horan was a kid who, like so many, had dreams of being famous, and making music, So he took a shot and tried out for X Factor, and boom - he became a member of the super famous boy band, One Direction. In order to get his image on par with his superstar status, he elected to do something about the warped and jagged smile he had going on.
Getting your teeth fixed as a kid can be an exciting experience, and that’s how Niall seemed to view it as he shared updates on his dental progress with the public. Invisalign braces helped him to get his teeth all straightened out, and veneers rounded off the shape and color perfectly.
Lindsay Lohan Is All Grown up and Sophisticated
Even though Lindsay looked like she was a whole lot of fun as a party girl, that sort of lifestyle isn’t really sustainable. Ask Charlie Sheen. The combination of drugs, alcohol, and coffee was rather detrimental to her physical appearance overall, but particularly her teeth.
When this young lady elected to stop doing holiday stints at luxury rehab facilities, it was time to fix up all that disintegrated enamel. The veneers she had done look lovely, and so does she.
The Features of Emily Blunt’s Face Are Gorgeous
It’s unclear to us what fault Emily Blunt found with her natural teeth. There are, of course, many benefits to having veneers. They don’t chip as easily as natural teeth and offer more resistance to staining.
Perhaps the reason they are so popular in Hollywood is that they look better on camera. Or perhaps some cunning dentists are making celebrities buy into this expensive trend for their own gain. Whatever her reasoning, the veneers that Emily had done are perhaps a tad clunky but ever so shiny.
Nicolas Cage Looked Like an Uncouth Fellow
Nic Cage is another example of a famous Hollywood star who started his career playing characters that your mother would tell you to stay away from. The face on the left looks like it belongs outside a 7-11, spinning yarn to relieve you of your change.
Fortunately for Nick, his acting surpassed being cast as the petty slimeball for the rest of his career. He opted to get the full house of dental improvements and let’s be honest, it wasn’t going to take any less with teeth like his. It cost him a lot, but it’s safe to say he’s made a return on that investment.
Blake Lively, the Sun-Kissed Goddess Next Door
Blake Lively has that nonchalant, natural, and effortless vibe about her. The thing that makes men fall in love at first sight, and women secretly despise her. How dare she be that pretty without even trying?!
While there is some speculation about the possibility of her getting some work done on her nose, it’s hard to say for sure. Her slighter, more angular features could simply be due to the aging process. Her teeth didn’t require much, some minor tweaking and bleach, and voila! Isn’t that smile glorious?
Is There Anything Natural About Victoria Beckham?
It’s no small feat to spot Victoria Beckham with a smile on her face. She doesn’t seem to be predisposed to human emotions such as joy. Or perhaps all that botox makes any facial movement more effort than it’s worth.
When she was still known as “Posh Spice” she had an asymmetrical smile that was a little bit lop-sided. After that, she strolled into the world of fashion, and as such needed to talk the talk and walk the catwalk. This meant forking out $40k on dental procedures and veneers.
Catherine Zeta-Jones Has Her Own Classic Style
It’s hard to imagine this elegant bombshell has ever felt insecure about anything in her life. But it just goes to show we really don’t know anything about the trials that another person may have had to endure to get to where they are.
When Catherine was younger, she was ridiculed for her imperfect teeth. Even after she had braces to get her teeth straightened out, it still took a lot of additional work and coin to get her smile to the impressive standard it’s at these days.
The Funny (Looking) Jim Carrey
Two decades ago, Jim Carrey was to be found in almost every slapstick comedy that squelched and farted its way out of Hollywood. He was the guy with the rubber face and the crazy eyeballs, missing half of his front tooth, and no role was too silly for Jim to pull over himself.
Obviously, when you’re playing the roles he was, having a straight smile isn’t a priority. Although we can’t imagine it didn’t cause him some discomfort. In time he got his teeth upgraded with a good set of veneers.
Tulisa Looking Prettiest in Pink
Tula Paulinea Contostavlos is an English rose who writes and performs songs, this makes her suitably qualified for her position on the panel for the X Factor and has probably contributed to what makes her such a competent judge.
She has never been an unattractive woman, but her two front teeth used to buckle inward slightly. Getting a set of veneers has helped her to highlight her striking features, by giving a perfectly even-toothed, white smile.
Oprah Winfrey Put Those Dollars to Good Use
Seeing what Oprah used to look like, there’s an old saying that comes to mind. “With those teeth, she could eat an orange through a tennis racquet.” They used to stick out rather substantially. As the money started rolling in from her acclaimed talk show, Oprah was smart about getting her face to represent her image and professionalism.
That meant braces, bleaching, and most likely veneers as well. That friendly, million-dollar, smile that has been flashed on television screens all over the world. She may have retired officially years ago, but the brand and reputation she cultivated for herself still stand.
Ben Affleck: Same Smile, Better Teeth
It’s a well-documented fact that Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have been friends since the dawn of time and busted into Hollywood together. Hailing from Boston, Ben didn’t have access to expensive cosmetic dentistry until later in life.
As we can see, it has made a big difference to his appearance. It looks like it took him some gum sculpting, bleaching, and veneers to obtain that smooth, dazzling smile. It wasn’t until after he upgraded his smile that directors started to cast him as the hero.
Cheryl Cole’s Dimples Make Her Utterly Adorable
Here’s another expert who appraises hopeful contestants on The X Factor. There is no hiding the fact that she has always turned heads with her angelic appearance, however, since electing to take the route to flawless teeth, she’s become absolutely enchanting.
Being a popular musician meant that there was no shortage of income, and with her earnings, she would have been able to afford any dentist she wanted. They did a great job of making her teeth more level and the ideal shade of white.
Morgan Freeman Seems Like the Ideal Grandfather
He looks like a well-traveled soul, who chooses his words deliberately and with care. His voice sounds like oak, and he has an air of old-world charm about him. He’s seen things and lived several lives within his memory. At least, that is frequently how Hollywood depicts the characters as to whom he is cast. It seems like a good fit.
However, even the old and the wise are afflicted with dental issues. In fact, one might say these things correlate. Luckily, neither of these excellent attributes got in the way of forking out the necessary fortune to get all the dental procedures he required to brighten up and straighten out his smile.
Michael Douglas Still Has His Own Teeth
Michael Douglas has been in the game for a long time. He’s watched it grow and change, he is very familiar with the rules, and probably helped in the formation of some of them. While his teeth were never a problem, they had room to be improved upon.
Time has a way of whittling things away and altering their color. This is fine for a hardwood floor, but less so for your teeth. Hence Michael decided to get his teeth built back up and whitened with the aid of some a-grade veneers.
Nicola Roberts Is Growing Into Her Fame
This young lady got her shot into the public eye by performing on a British television show that put girls who wanted to be singers into groups and had them compete against each other. The winning group became the pop sensation Girls Aloud, and Nicola was one of them.
Part of the process of being transformed from an ordinary girl into a celebrity is smoothing over any aesthetic glitches. In Nicola’s case, her teeth were a weak point in her appearance. After getting them aligned, bleached, and veneered, her smile is far more likely to sell album covers.
50 Cent Is a Down to Earth Guy
Today, most people know him as 50 Cent, but his family knows him as Curtis James Jackson III. His teeth have never been awful. A little crooked and a little gap-toothed, sure. But nothing that would have a person screaming and running in the opposite direction at his smile.
But apparently, rappers are like big kids that tease each other for looking different, as some other artist made fun of Curtis’ teeth in a song. When he opted to go for some dental procedures, he said he wanted to keep his trademark smile, and that he has. His teeth look more polished and refined, less “street.” There are no gaps, and all his teeth are neatly gleaming in their rows.
Did Steve-O Get Some Extra Teeth Put In?
Whether you loved it or hated it, there is no disputing the fact that everyone has heard about the show Jackass and its proponents. They taught young adults everywhere that just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. The drug- and alcohol-fueled stunts of the utter insanity that they performed were infamous, and none more so than Steve-O.
Stephen Gilchrist Glover lived a wild life and his teeth were a reflection of that. Luckily for him, stupid sells, and with all that crazy money rolling in he was able to get some blindingly white veneers that filled the entirety of this available gumline.
David Bowie Had a Grace About Him
There was nothing that David Bowie did that he didn’t do well. He was an enormously talented musician and actor, and his contribution to the arts is such that it will live on indefinitely.
He was also a highly fashionable individual, and the unique looks he cultivated inspired a cult-like following. Fortunately, he didn’t manage to convince the world that yellow teeth are a trend. He went the route of veneers when he was ready to upgrade his smile. Only the best for Mr. Bowie.
Cardi B Has Done Well for Herself
Belcalis Almanzar didn’t attain fame and fortune by conventional means. This young woman grew up poor. Being from the Bronx didn’t open up a lot of employment opportunities, so she did what she had to, what she could. She made a name for herself with Vines before the platform got the plug pulled, while also working as an exotic dancer.
These days Cardi B delivers a different sort of performance, she’s now a rapper with a massive following and fortune. Getting her teeth done reportedly cost her in the region of $40k. They certainly do a service to her smile.
The Royal Deserter That Is Meghan Markle
Everyone knows who Meghan Markle is - and it isn’t due to her acting. In case you’ve been living under a rock, let’s recap Megan’s spectacle. She married the prince of England, decided all the airs and graces were too demanding for her, shared all their private family drama with Oprah and the world, and left the royal family with one less Harry and royal heir.
She does have a very nice set of teeth, though. Some braces to close that gap, a spot of shaping, and some bleaching, and the results speak for themselves. You’d need a charming smile to Pied-Piper a prince away from his family.
Who Doesn’t Absolutely Adore Millie Bobby Brown?
They grow up so fast, don’t they? It seems like barely a few months have passed since we saw Millie Bobby Brown playing a little girl with big abilities in the series Stranger Things. It turns out she’s not 12 anymore.
She has other characters in her future with which she will surely woo and enthrall us. In order for her to look her best, most dazzling self, she needed to get her smile on par with her talent.
Demi Lovato Has Turned Into a Powerful Woman
Demi has always had a natural girlish charisma. It’s made them come across as affable in everything they do, and they've done a lot for someone as young as they are. A sincere smile on a beautiful face goes a long way, and getting any cosmetic dentistry was quite redundant. That’s not to say they don’t look amazing.
Growing up in the public eye means that Demi has had to overcome the opinions of thousands of strangers about things that are none of their business. Things that normal girls take for granted, such as putting on a few kilos. If a bit of straightening and whitening helps them to keep smiling through all the noise, then good for them.
We Can’t Stop Staring at Emma Roberts
Fame runs in her family, she was practically born with the red carpet stuck to the soles of her feet. Between the influences of aunt Julia and dad Eric, one might say Emma was destined for an acting career.
Luckily she didn’t seem to mind her fate, since Emma was blessed with some stellar genetics. Whoever did her dental work was a master, because her smile is a work of art. Looks like she will do the Roberts name proud.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers Gives Women Weak Knees
Jonathan always looks like he’s up to mischief. Delicious, irresistibly enticing mischief. Considering how this actor made his way into acting, that may not be far from the truth. As a young Irish lad of 14, he was randomly picked up by a modeling scout whilst bunking school.
With a face like that and the attitude to boot, it wasn’t long before it led him into acting. Since he wasn’t from an affluent background, his mom did the best she could but that didn’t cover expensive dentistry. Nowadays Jonathan can cover his own dental care, and the veneers he had done look smashing.
Kirsten Dunst Started Young
Kirsten Dunst was just a little girl when she took to the screen for the first time. This has enabled her to rack up an impressive repertoire of films for a woman as young as she is now. She never had a problem with her teeth just the way they were.
Some minor straightening and a bit of bleach, and we can all agree that she looks gorgeous as is. Kirsten has mostly retired from acting since starting a family but still makes an appearance on television here and there.
Jordyn Woods Got a Lot of Flack
For a woman who claims not to be concerned with “blending in with the rest of society,” she appears to have gone to all kinds of measures to adhere to its standards of beauty. There is absolutely nothing wrong with switching up your style and finding yourself a new look.
The thing that didn’t sit right with people was that she had made a big deal about not fixing her tooth gap because it made a statement of her identity. It was her way of authentically rebelling. And then in 2018 she went ahead and deleted that gap with some veneers. Bummer.
These Celebs Paid A LOT of Money on Plastic Surgeries: Cher – $750,000
There's no doubt that it costs a lot to look the part when you're famous, but if you think that those celebrities stop at dental modifications, you'd be wrong. Very wrong. Check out just how much celebrities are willing to pay - money-wise and pain-wise - to measure up and look flawless.
Most of you might not even remember Cher. She was a huge, important figure back in the ‘60s, and up to the ’70s. She was a huge, overnight music success, alongside Sonny Bono. The most-remembered hit song is definitely I Got You, Babe. She managed to get into acting and modeling as well, and it was probably there where she got the idea that staying young forever is the way to go.
She tries to look as best she can, and we really cannot argue with that. She had a few Botox injections, eyelid alterations, rhinoplasties, and chest augmentations are done to her. The total cost of all the surgeries is $750,000.
Kim Kardashian – $16,500
The Kardashian family is hailed for their beauty, but unfortunately, most of that beauty is a product of plastic surgery. Kim Kardashian or the “Queen of all Media” is no different here. She had some adjustments made to both her face and her body. Kim Kardashian actually became famous back in 2007, when her sex tape with Ray J leaked into the public. She became even more famous after the fact with different shows and roles and has enough money to open up a bank. What we are trying to say is that the plastic surgeries she had most certainly did not take too much money out of her pocket.
Her net worth sits at around $85 million, so if she spent the rumored $5,000 on her nose job, another $5,000 on her Botox treatment on her eyebrows and other parts of her face, she certainly did not stretch her bank in even the slightest way.
Donatella Versace – $25,000
Even if you do not know Donatella, you most definitely know her last name – Versace. She is a well-known fashion icon and one of the most famous people in the world. There is probably not a single person in the world that does not connect Versace with fashion and fame. All in all, if there is a single thing that we can connect with Versace, it is money. And we mean a lot of money.
With a net worth of a staggering $200 million, Donatella makes it high up the list of the richest women in the world. She was never afraid to admit to plastic surgeries, stating, “I do not believe in totally natural for women.” Botox injections and fillers, laser surgery, and a few other things certainly did change her appearance and set her back for around $25,000.
La Toya Jackson – Unknown
La Toya Jackson, the sister of the late King of Pop. Just like Michael, she too was a member of the Jackson family. However, she never really fit into the whole Jackson family's talents. She is certainly not known as a good singer, and when it came to compensating for the lack of talent there, she tried herself at modeling and posed for the Playboy magazine back in the ’80s.
She is obsessed with plastic surgeries, and a surprise to no one - her “nose has collapsed, just like her brother Michael’s did.” You would think with the amount of obvious work done to her body, she would at least openly admit it, but you would be wrong. She has been in denial for years. What is the reason for her breathing problems according to her? Allergies.
Jane Fonda – Unknown
Legendary actress, political activist, and environmentalist Jane Fonda is no stranger to the surgeon's knife. The many surgeries the star has had include breast enhancements, multiple facelifts, jaw-lifts, and eye surgery to address under-eye bags, saying, "I got tired of looking tired when I wasn't."
Fonda has admitted to having work done, despite famously deflecting the question in a 2017 interview with Megyn Kelly. In February of 2020, at the age of 82, Jane Fonda declared she was done with plastic surgery for good, telling Elle Canada, "I'm not going to cut myself up anymore." She went on to describe the need to work on her self-acceptance, as much of her fame and status had been linked to her appearance. You go, Jane Fonda!
Nicki Minaj – $31,200
Nicki Minaj not only made major steps in her career since her small beginnings in New York but also made quite major steps when it comes to her appearance as well. She is getting larger and larger, and we will let you decide whether that is a good thing or a bad thing.
Now, to the obvious things that we can all see. She has lightened her skin, which would set her back $1,000. She had three different surgeries done as well, the amount of all three weighing in at around $11,500. Let us be honest, Nicki is definitely known for her big behind. Reportedly, she has spent around $5,000 on butt implants. The score together is therefore at around $31,000.
Kathy Griffin – $30,000
Kathy Griffin is quite a well-known comedian. She has been appearing in front of the audience and making them laugh for close to 30 years now. Appearing in front of the audience takes its toll, and steps have to be taken to remain as youthful and beautiful as you possibly can.
There is heavy speculation that the only reason that she actually went and had some cosmetic work done is due to the fact that she wanted more roles in movies and series. Botox injections and chemical peeling are only just some of the things that she had done. Those two set her back for around $5,000. Once known for her curly hair, she actually spent $1,000 to have her hair be permanently straightened. Counting in a few other procedures that she had done, the score is at around $30,000 for her as well.
Mickey Rourke – $36,000
And we have our first man on the list. With a career span of over 30 years, it is no wonder that Mickey Rourke had to get some work done. However, the surgeries soon became an obsession, and as he aged, he became much more obsessed with how he looks. It seems like he is one of those people that simply cannot embrace the fact that they are getting old, and will never be young again, despite the amount of work done on them. One source close to him even claims that “he’s hooked on surgery.”
Out of quite numerous procedures, the majority involved his face. He had six facelifts by the time of this article and had nose alteration done as well. The total cost is about $36,000.
Caitlyn Jenner – $5 Million
You just knew she would be on this list and we are not the ones to disappoint you. You would think that she is the one person on this list that had spent the most amount of money but hangs on tight because she is not. Caitlyn Jenner was once known as Bruce Jenner. She made the headlines when she transformed herself from a man to a woman because she felt like she was a woman stuck in the body of a man. To free the woman inside, she spent around $5 million for the surgeries. A staggering amount, no doubt.
You might ask yourself how does one achieve such a huge transformation. Well, it all started back in the ‘80s, when she had rhinoplasties and laser hair removal procedures done. Those took up much of her time and extended into the ‘90s as well. She then went forward with the more drastic and bigger surgeries. To finish it all off, she had surgery done on her face. The face surgery itself took ten hours to perform.
Lil’ Kim – $19,625
As years pass by, people tend to change. And that is exactly what happened with Lil’ Kim, whose real name is Kimberly Denise Jones. She gained quick recognition in the music scene back in the 1990s, but in 2008 simply disappeared. The reason was that she went to jail for one year.
After she was released, it seemed like a totally different Kim came out. Surgeries began, and the most obvious being on her face. When she appeared in the public again, she absolutely stunned everyone. She looked like a totally different person than she was before. She lightened her skin, which set her back for $5,000. She also enlarged her breasts, which would amount to around $8,000 altogether. Her nose was also one of the things that she decided to change, so that is another $4,000. She also had liposuction done, which is around $3,000. The cost of all the operations together was around $20,000.
Roseanne Barr – $45,000
We have another comedian on the list. Roseanne Barr actually not only performs as a comedian but is also quite well-known for her own sitcom, Roseanne. Her body type was one that many people made fun of in the past, and that seemed like the main decision behind her change in appearance.
She reached her limit when she was starting to be cast in roles that were designed for fat people. Barr had enough, and after her Roseanne sitcom ended, she decided that it was time to make a change. Time to change her appearance. Around $10,000 went into reducing her chest. She then spent another $6,000 to have her stomach tucked. Rhinoplasty set her back for another $4,000. There were also occasional operations here and there, and it all amounted to $45,000.
Tom Jones – $46,000
Another man on the list. It might be the older generations that recognize Tom Jones first. He was a singer back in the 1960s, and one of his most-known songs was definitely What’s new, Pussycat and She’s a Lady. With 50 years of performing in front of thousands of people, Tom Jones definitely had to get some work done to stay appealing to the younger generations as well.
He said that he wants to keep a youthful appearance and even revealed in an interview with the Mirror that his doctor is quite worried about him, and has actually warned him that he needs to stop going under the knife. According to him, his doctor said, “you’ve got to be careful with your lower eyes… your eyes will be bloody popping out!” Now that is a warning and a half.
Kris Jenner – $1 Million
We have reached yet another in the Jenner-Kardashian dynasty. Kris Jenner is the mother and is the one that brings both parts of the family together. The family that will easily dominate this here article with the number of people from the family appearing in it. Just like we have mentioned before, they are all well-known for having work done on them. They want to stay in the spotlight and will do whatever it takes.
It is no different for Kris Jenner as well. However, one might think that she is new to the whole scene of plastic surgeries, but you would be horribly wrong. Her first dip into beauty surgery was roughly around 40 years ago. There are numerous parts of her body and the numerous surgeries that she had done. For example, she had chest surgery, rhinoplasties, Botox treatments, dental modifications, etc. You name it. It all set her back for about $1 million dollars.
Demi Moore – $400,000
Did you know that Demi Moore was a model once upon a time? That was way before she became known as a famous actress. Not only that, but she is also a songwriter. Her claim to fame began back in the ‘80s and reached even higher in the ‘90s. She was the highest-paid actress in the United States history for her role in Striptease. She earned a staggering $12.5 million for that performance alone.
If you think she has not aged much from then to now, then you would definitely be right. As far as the looks are concerned, anyway. This beauty can thank quite a few surgeries, including facelifts and cheek augmentation. On top of that, she also had laser treatments done. All in all, $400,000 worth of work.
Joan Rivers – $99,000
It seems like those cosmetic surgery is actually quite persistent if you are a comedian. Joan Rivers, who has unfortunately passed away back in 2014, was one of the greatest comediennes of all time. Her controversial humor and the laughter she managed to get out of her crowds set a new bar for every comedian out there. She also began her career in comedy when it was mostly dominated by male comedians, so her success is even more unbelievable when you think about it.
She managed to look young even when she was in her 60s, and that is all thanks to several surgeries that she had done. She was also appearing on television at the time, and a young face just manages to sell more. She definitely had a lot of minor procedures done. And we mean a lot - 348 minor procedures. Since nobody is keeping score, that might actually be a world record. We will never know.
Sharon Osbourne – $160,000
Sharon Osbourne always managed to make a statement. One way or the other. She is mostly known for her red-dyed hair that she has been rocking for years. Many of you already know this, but if her last name was not obvious enough – yes, she is the wife of Ozzy Osbourne. She became famous after her first appearance on the show The Osbournes, which was back in 2002.
It is no secret that she underwent cosmetic surgery, and she talked openly about it. In an interview with the Female First, she revealed: “I had liposuction on my neck and had it lifted, too. I had my breasts lifted, my arms lipo-ed, and my tummy tucked. I had my bum lifted and implants inserted, and I had my legs lifted… The total cost was $160,000 and it was worth every last penny.”
Rumer Willis – $100,000
We have talked about Demi Moore a few slides back, and we would like to introduce Rumer Willis, her daughter. She is an actress, just like her mother, but also a singer too. To prove that the apple really does not fall far from the tree, she too had a couple of procedures done on herself. A source close to her claims that “Rumer’s been to see Demi’s plastic surgeon… and since she’s always finding flaws, she keeps going back.”
Her surgeries are far from cheap. And the lifestyle of changing something as soon as she does not like it has brought up a staggering $100,000 spent at the surgeon’s office. She had jawline reconstructive surgery, rhinoplasties, Botox and lip injections, and a bunch of other stuff done to her.
Michael Jackson – $1 Million
We have talked about his sister already, and we have reached The king of pop himself. Michael Jackson went through numerous body changes in his life, and most of these had caused controversy throughout his whole life. He was, undoubtedly, one of the most talented musicians to ever touch Earth, and is still famous to this day, despite having passed away 10 years ago. His eccentric behavior and unbelievable talent are one of the main reasons why he is and will remain a music legend.
We are providing you with three photos this time, just so you can see for yourself how much he changed over the years. He actually never admitted to having his skin bleached and claimed that it was all due to a skin condition called Vitiligo. For those of you that are not familiar with it, Vitiligo changes your skin pigment. When he was on the Oprah Winfrey Show, he admitted that he did, in fact, get two facial surgeries done. There were, of course, a few others, along with jaw reconstruction, eye lifts, nose jobs, and so on and so forth. The estimated value is $1 million.
Kylie Jenner – $2 Million
Kylie Jenner is the youngest celebrity on this list. Amongst other things she is also an influencer and has a huge following of particularly young girls, who think that she is beautiful. It would be great to hear how many of them actually know that her beauty is mostly due to all the cosmetic surgeries that she had. If you are a Kardashian-Jenner, you are going under the knife. That has been well established by now.
She is one of the best-paid models in the world and tries to look stunning at every step. Lip fillers and other body modifications had set her back a stunning $2 million. Please be reminded that she is only 21-years-old.
Jocelyn Wildenstein – $6.7 Million
Remember when we said that those $5 millions from Caitlyn are not the highest amount on this list? Introducing Jocelyn Wildenstein, who spent a staggering $6.7 million on her body. There is not a single cosmetic operation that she has not gone under, and it is safe to say that she does not resemble her own old self in even the slightest way. She is known as the “Catwoman” and a prime example of what can happen if you overdo it on your surgeries.
Lucky for her, she has enough money to fund her obsession. She is the person that has spent more money on cosmetic surgery than anyone else in this article. We will leave it up to you to decide if that is considered a good or a bad thing. According to the interview she gave to the Mirror, she had so far spent $6.7 million, and she is not done yet.
