Some celebrities have aged well, and some have just not. Whether it's a hard-partying lifestyle, too much plastic surgery over the years, or just a simple case of time being unkind, there are a lot of famous actors, models, and musicians who have not stood the test of time - so to speak.
One sad example is Jessica Simpsons, who is now 41 years old and looks almost unrecognizable. She now says she regrets all the surgeries she underwent.
Here are 35 celebrities who have just not aged well.
Kathleen Turner is a very accomplished actress, and at the age of 67, she is very well-deserving of the accomplishments and accolades she has received from being in the entertainment industry for over four decades. During the height of Turner's career in the '80s, she was also quite the beauty, starring in Body Heat and Romancing the Stone.
With her raspy, and some may say, sexy voice, Kathleen Turner is still a force to be reckoned with, however, her looks have somewhat deteriorated over the last few years.
The Australian actor Russell Crowe has appeared in some pretty incredible films over the years. Some of these roles have even won him a couple of prestigious awards, including an Oscar for 2000's Gladiator. Not necessarily known for being clean-shaven, the actor still managed to be seen as a pretty good-looking guy.
Over the years, however, Russel Crowe's trademark unkempt look has gone from merely a little scruffy to full-on messy. His bushy beard and the extra weight he seems to be carrying these days have added to this now unappealing look.
Janice Dickinson claims to be the first-ever supermodel. During the '70s and the '80s, she was certainly one of the most successful models. She's graced the covers of Harper's Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, and even Playboy. She also has her own modeling agency. During the very height of her career, Dickinson was indeed a very beautiful woman.
In her later years though Janice Dickinson seems to have undergone a lot of plastic surgery. In fact, she is almost unrecognizable with what appears to be overly botoxed lips and cheeks, and a face that no longer resembles the face she had in the '80s.
Johnny Depp was always considered the 'pretty-boy' type. From his early days in films, Edward Scissorhands and A Nightmare on Elm Street to his time on the tv show 21 Jump Street, the American actor has been everyone's crush and Hollywood's rogue darling.
He has unfortunately succumbed to the detriments of time, and possibly to a lifestyle of a little too much partying. His once long, dark hair has thinned and turned grey and his chiseled features seem to have disappeared.
Lil' Kim paved the way for a lot of female rappers since her musical debut in 1994 at the age of 19. Since then she has gone on to be a very successful singer, actress, and model. Considered to be both a fashion and musical icon, and despite her fame, the rapper has unfortunately succumbed to the notion that she can't age gracefully.
Her appearance these days is somewhat different to the Lil' Kim of the early 2000s when she had her hand in almost every pie, including a role in the teen romantic comedy She's All That, and being one of four icons to star in the "Lady Marmalade" track and video in 2001. It seems she has had quite a bit of plastic surgery done making her almost unrecognizable.
Leonardo DiCaprio also started out as a child star. He acted in Basketball Diaries and What's Eating Gilbert Grape, and then went on to become a huge Hollywood star after he appeared in Titanic and Romeo + Juliet. He was a teen heartthrob and his relationships with scores of gorgeous models and actresses have been the topic of discussion for years.
DiCaprio has also maintained a bit of a wild, partying lifestyle, and this is probably why his age seems to be catching up with him. He is only 46 but looks a lot older.
La Toya Jackson
La Toya Jackson is a member of the extremely famous Jackson family. Her brother Michael Jackson was not the only talented sibling in the clan, as pretty much every Jackson child went on to have successful musical careers. In her early days singing with her brothers, and as a solo artist La Toya was so desired she even posed for Playboy magazine.
It seems that La Toya, much like a lot of celebrities discovered plastic surgery and Botox in the '90s, and can't seem to stop going under the knife. Her face looks nothing like it once did, and at the age of 65 Jackson seems to show no sign of slowing down in the cosmetic surgery department.
Jack Nicholson was once Hollywood's bad boy. Known for his reputation with women, and his love of the party lifestyle, Nicholson lead a life of wild nights, and parties. He was also extremely good-looking at the height of his career which included roles in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Chinatown.
After 40 years of being in the limelight and being one of Hollywood's elite, the veteran actor now claims that his lifestyle is very different from what it once was. He has also aged quite a bit, and not in the most flattering way. He spends his nights alone and is apparently terrified of being on his own when he dies.
Joan Van Ark
Oftentimes, stars seemingly try to fight the aging process, but in the end, it just makes things worse. Such is the case of Joan Van Ark, who, in her 70s, has undergone multiple surgeries, but by the looks of it, it would have been better to just accept the course of time and embrace her wrinkles. Too much plastic surgery is never a good thing.
The American actress is best remembered for her role as Valene Ewing on the primetime soap opera Knots Landing.
The former American child film star Lindsay Lohan has had a tough time in the limelight. Not only did she become very famous very quickly, but she also fell into the trap of partying too hard, and using a little too much botox.
She was once a fresh-faced kid in The Parent Trap, and then went on to become an equally fresh-faced teen in Mean Girls and Freaky Friday. It was around that time that she became a hard-drinking party girl, and both her reputation and looks suffered.
Brendan Fraser was once able to appear in multiple blockbusters, and he always looked good doing it. He seemed to peak in the '90s and early 2000s with roles in George of the Jungle, Bedazzled, The Mummy, and The Mummy Returns.
Much like his acting roles, Brendan Fraser's looks also seem to be on a bit of a hiatus. He has packed on the pounds and only seems to be taking on supporting roles these days. Perhaps the stresses of a declining career have affected his physical appearance.
Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart, Duchess of Alba
Spain's Duchess of Alba, whose full (and lengthy!) name was María del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James-Stuart y de Silva, was the country's richest aristocrat as well as the most titled person in the world. She led life by her own rules, which involved flaunting a flashing style, having a soft spot for much younger men and marrying them.
But above all, Cayetana had an obsession with plastic surgeries. She actually suffered facial deformity from all the procedures she underwent. She constantly made headlines for her plastic surgery disasters. However, she was oblivious to all the criticism. “I am not a person who allows herself to be managed” she once expressed.
Brigitte Bardot is a former French singer, actress, and model. She's practically an icon and was adored by her fans the world over. There was even an Australian pop group that named their band after her. Women coveted her hair and make-up, and men were obsessed with her 'sexy-kitten' personae.
These days, at the age of 87, Bardot is more known for her activist and philanthropic work with animal rights, than for her once good looks and distinct fashion style. It is fair to say that you probably would not recognize the style icon if you saw her today.
Angie Dickinson's last project was a TV movie in 2009, marking the end of a career that began in the early '50s. She was a leading lady in the '60s, with her first big break in 1959 playing Feathers in Rio Bravo. In the 1970s, Angie returned to the small screen and starred in Police Woman, the (award-winning) first successful dramatic TV series with a female lead. She's won an Academy Award. . Her award-winning performances include Gun The Man Down and Dressed To Kill.
Dickinson now lives by herself in Beverly Hills. She had one daughter from her marriage to Bacharach named Nikki, who took her own life in 2007 at age 40. "She was very smart and funny and wonderful. Yeah, so all my memories of her are my best memories." She had many social problems, "If she hit me, she would hit me out of frustration, of not being able to cope with whatever it was, was her problem. She had no coping skills. So, she just took her life. She couldn't take it anymore."
Sophia Loren, 87, was a bombshell in the 60s and 70s and, even though we don't see her on the screens anymore, the five-time Golden Globe-winning actress affirms age is just a number.
She shared in an interview, “Sometimes when I say I’m 86, I don’t believe it. I feel 20,” confessed Loren, shining as the cover girl for AARP the Magazine’s December 2020/January 2021 issue. “When I look in the mirror, I cheer for myself. I don’t ask, ‘Are you great?’ or ‘Are you beautiful?’ No! It’s how I feel inside, how secure I am, how happy I am. That’s what matters.”
Nancy Sinatra is the daughter of singing legend Frank Sinatra and decided to follow in his footsteps when it came to choosing a career. After a few years of hard graft, she made it in the '70s with memorable classics such as These Boots Are Made For Walking, Sugar Town, and Somethin' Stupid.
Nancy did have a go at acting as well, and although she'll always be best known for her music, she did appear in movies such as Speedway, Marriage on the Rocks, and The Wild Angels. She's semi-retired now, although she still has a radio spot.
Mark Hamill played one of the most iconic characters in film history - Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars trilogy during the '70s and '80s. He even reprised his role as an older Skywalker in the latest additions to the Star Wars franchise. His talent and good looks made him an instant star.
The years haven't been that kind to Hamill. His hair has greyed, and his face has formed many wrinkles. Of course, this is not too surprising being that he first appeared on the screen 40 years ago. Time does take its toll eventually.
Courtney Love was an icon during the '90s, and this was mostly due to her being involved with the late Nirvana singer, Kurt Cobain. Nirvana and Love's band Hole ruled the grunge music scene at the time, and even without the Cobain link, Love is a force to be reckoned with on her own.
Her unique fashion sense and alternative style, coupled with her stunning looks, made Courtney Love the object of many rocker's affections. Unfortunately, her rockstar lifestyle has had a negative effect on her face, leaving her appearing haggard and permanently tired.
Val Kilmer used to be an absolute babe! During the height of his career when he was appearing in movies such as Top Secret!, The Doors, Batman Forever, Heat, The Saint, and The Ghost and the Darkness, his good looks were as much a part of his success as his talents.
His career has suffered during the last decade, or two, and so has Kilmer's looks. This is also partially due to his deteriorating health. The actor has struggled with cancer, and can no longer use his trachea or feed himself.
There is absolutely no doubt that Barbara Streisand is one of the most talented performers in the world. She is actually the only person to be the recipient of the four most prestigious awards in entertainment - the Grammy, Oscar, Emmy, and the Tony Award. She is clearly multi-talented, and at one point during her career, she was also considered a true beauty.
After being an actress and singer for over five decades, the years and the constant time spent in the limelight have had a visible effect on the star's face. She is now 79 and it would be ridiculous to expect Streisand to still look like she did in What's Up, Doc? and A Star Is Born.
You may not know this but Ozzy Osbourne was once a very good-looking man. The English singer, songwriter, and frontman for the heavy metal group Black Sabbath was quite the looker in the '60s, '70s, and '80s.
During the height of his musical career, Ozzy Osbourne was also known for his excessive partying and drug-taking. He has been open about his past, and to this day the singer jokes about the memory loss he has suffered due to his wild lifestyle and addictions. It seems his looks were also something that he lost along the way.
Kelly McGillis is an American actress who rose to fame in 1985 with a supporting role in the film Witness opposite Harrison Ford. In 1986 she starred in Top Gun opposite Tom Cruise and became known not only for her talented acting but also for her stunning good looks.
McGillis has had a lot of personal struggles to deal with over the years. It is not surprising that she has become less and less recognizable. Despite her changing looks she has continued to perform on stage, and on-screen.
Funnyman Jim Carrey has had quite a successful career. His movies in the '90s and early 2000s made him a huge star, and he has also had some pretty high-profile relationships with a string of beautiful women. Unfortunately, the actor has also struggled openly with depression and addiction.
These personal and mental struggles of Carrey's have begun to show on his once fresh and innocent-looking face. He has also taken to growing a long and scruffy-looking beard, making him appear even more unhinged.
American actress Renee Zellweger looks nothing like she used to! Most famously known for portraying the lovable role of Bridget Jones in the series of films of the same name, she also starred in Cold Mountain, Chicago, and Jerry Maguire.
Over the past few years, Zellweger has been accused of completely transforming her physical features with plastic surgery. Though she continues to deny it, it has become increasingly obvious that her changing looks may not just be attributed to aging.
Billy Idol is the perfect example of the dangers of living a complete rock 'n roll lifestyle with absolute abandon. The punk rocker has always claimed to be a child at heart, but that hasn't helped keep the hands of time at bay.
The English singer who is 65 now, still maintains his unique punk look and wears makeup when out in public, but no amount of eyeliner can hide the obvious damage that years of alcohol and drug addiction have had on his appearance.
Pamela Anderson shot to fame when she starred in tv's cheezy hit Baywatch in the '90s. The blonde star graced the pages of magazines, and was continuously listed as one of the most beautiful people on the planet, and all because of a red swimsuit and the ability to run in slow motion on a beach.
Over the years, the actress' star has shone a little dimmer, and not just in terms of her job offers, which have all but disappeared. Her looks have changed too, and not for the better. Time has not been kind to the former Playboy Playmate.
Steven Tyler, the lead singer for Aerosmith was once a really good-looking guy. With his long dark flowing hair, pouty lips, and flamboyant fashion sense, Tyler's reputation for being a ladies' man just exploded during the '70s and '80s.
Nowadays, even though Tyler and his band are still making music and still touring the world, the singer's looks have definitely gone into retirement. Appearing on the red carpet today in his usual unique style, the rock 'n roll legend simply looks exhausted.
Geena Davis has appeared in some very impressive films over the years. She has been in Thelma and Louise, Beetlejuice, A League of Their Own, and her debut Tootsie, and even did a spot of modeling. Her movie roles also resulted in a string of award nominations and wins - including a Golden Globe Award and an Academy Award.
Unfortunately, a string of box-office flops started the decline of her career. With her career in a downwind spiral, her looks seem to have followed suit. Davis has put on weight and seems to be neglecting her appearance.
We think that Mick Jagger needs to slow down and take some time off. The aging rocker and lead singer of The Rolling Stones is still touring, has fathered a total of eight children, the latest of which was born when he was 73, and all of this seems to be taking its toll on the singer's looks.
Mick Jagger was once considered to be an extremely attractive man. With his pouty lips and reputation for being the ultimate ladies' man, women would flock to his concerts in the hopes of catching Jagger's roaming eye. These days though he looks tired and a lot older than his current age of 78.
Mischa Barton was once one of the biggest stars on television. Her role as Marissa Cooper in the teen drama The O.C made her massively successful almost overnight. No one could have predicted that kind of instant fame, even though she had actually been acting for a decade before that as a child actor.
Her stunning features and wholesome looks made her the envy of Tinseltown, and with all that fame came struggles with substance abuse. After The O.C Barton struggled to secure decent roles in both film and television and has since had a problem with her fluctuating weight for years.
Macaulay Culkin became the poster child for child actors that struggle to make it as actors in their adult years. After starring in a slew of family movies as a child such as Home Alone, My Girl, and Richie Rich, Culkin, and his cherubic face seemed to disappear from our screens, and took a break from acting for almost a decade.
After his return to acting the public was very quick to notice that the actor no longer looked like the angelic star he once appeared to be. He appeared gaunt, exhausted and addiction rumors have plagued him to this day.
Kate Moss almost invented the notion of the supermodel. During the '90s she was iconic, and it is because of this British model that people all over the world coveted her waif-like figure and elfin-looks. Discovered at 14, Moss grew up in front of the public very quickly.
Known for her partying ways, as much as for her modeling, Kate Moss has spent the last two decades drinking and smoking and having late nights - and you can now see it all on her face.
This might come as a surprise but Martha Stewart was once a model and was signed with Ford Modeling Agency. She was just 15 when she started out, and actually did a number of television commercials and campaigns, including for the luxury fashion house Chanel.
This didn't last very long, and the Martha Stewart that we know today is more into food and the domestic life than modeling and appearing waif-like. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as Stewart has made a lot of money from being more into food than fashion.
John Travolta was at the peak of his career and was also at his most attractive when he starred in the films Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Urban Cowboy. After a little hiatus during the '80s, he came back in full force in the '90s with his role in Pulp Fiction.
By that time though the actor's looks were no longer what they used to be. His once luscious locks have been replaced with a bald head, and his chiseled features have definitely softened with age. To be fair Travolta has had a lot of personal struggles in his life, and so we'll give him a break.
Goldie Hawn made a name for herself in Hollywood during the '80s and '90s with lead roles in films such as Overboard, Death Becomes Her, The First Wives Club, and Bird on a Wire. For 30 years of her career, she's been seen as the whole package: talented and beautiful.
At the age of 75 Hawn seems to have aged really badly. She may also have indulged in a little too much botox and plastic surgery, and because of this her roles have dwindled, and very rarely does she now play the lead.
Brad Pitt still looks good. That being said he is a far cry from the once gorgeous actor he was in films such as Thelma and Louise, Fight Club, Legends of the Fall, and Interview with the Vampire. Don't get us wrong, Pitt is still talented and just as much in demand, but the years have definitely defined him.
He has also admitted to having problems with alcohol addiction, and living quite a tumultuous lifestyle, even during his marriages to Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie. The stress of all of this has left the actor looking quite a bit older than he perhaps should.
Britney Spears was once every man's dreamgirl during the early 2000s. With her blonde hair, toned body, and dazzling smile, Spears was the epitome of gorgeous. In 2007 the pop star suffered a mental breakdown, and since then both her career and outward appearance have suffered.
She ended up shaving all her hair off and was constantly in the news for all the wrong things. Recently she seems to be getting parts of her life back, and her career is on the mend. Unfortunately, the stress of the last few decades has taken its toll on her beauty.
Look, Clint Eastwood is 91 years old, and it is fair to say that everyone ages eventually. That being said it almost seems as though the Hollywood veteran has been old and grey forever. If you want to see Eastwood as a hunk though, do yourself a favor and watch a few episodes of Rawhide.
Back in the '60s, Clint Eastwood was the hunky cowboy Rowdy Yates. His success in the western tv show incited a successful career in even more westerns such as Sergio Leone's "Dollars Trilogy" and five "Dirty Harry" films. These days he is more comfortable in the director's seat.
Teri Hatcher made a name for herself when she played the beautiful Lois Lane in the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman in the early to mid-'90s. For most of us, she will forever be the stunning Lois.
At 56 Hatcher has most certainly aged quite a bit. After her massively popular show Desperate Housewives ended in 2012, her career has also been on a bit of a decline. Then there are those pesky plastic surgery rumors. Either way, it seems like the actress can't seem to get a break.
Once upon a time, Robert Plant was considered to be one of the sexiest men in rock music. As the lead singer for Led Zeppelin, Plant was constantly surrounded by groupies backstage, and his iconic long blonde locks were a huge part of his charm.
These days the English singer still has long hair, but it no longer has the same effect that it once had. It now just looks scraggly and untidy, and in desperate need of a chop.
