From fake hair to fake breasts, this country star is arguably the most open person in Hollywood regarding her surgeries. Nobody's surprised that legendary musician Dolly Parton has undergone oodles of cosmetic procedures; it's pretty obvious. But if you're too young, you might not know how open, honest, and confident Parton actually is about it In 2003, she told Oprah, "I'm a cartoon, so I just look the same all the time. I do whatever I need to do. I don't overdo it, but... I'm kind of like a show dog, you know. I just have to keep myself up."
Some critics might disagree that she never "overdoes" it, but it's not like she's trying to hide it, either. 17 years later, she opened up on The Oprah Conversation once again without shame: "I'll look as young as my plastic surgeons will allow me and [with] all the makeup and lighting and all that." While many stars are regretful or secretive about their surgeries, Parton takes all of the unwarranted criticism in stride. She does what she wants and doesn't apologize for it!
Nevertheless, here's what she would look like if she let mother nature do its thing...
Like Dolly Parton, music icon Cher has never been shy about discussing anything in her life, really, including plastic surgery. Even though she never explicitly explained the procedures she will or won't do, she has plenty of opinions on the philosophy behind physical enhancements, fillers, lipo, implants, reductions, lifts, etc.
"If I'd had as much plastic surgery as they [say], you know, like I've got a** implants and calf implants and cheek implants..., " Cher quipped to ABC in 2002, cutting her thought short to clarify, "I've had the same cheeks my entire life. No butt lifts. No ribs removed. If I want to put my tits on my backs, it's nobody's business but my own. "
Meg Ryan never intended to be America's Sweetheart, but that's where she ended up thanks to movies like Sleepless in Seattle, When Harry Met Sally, and You've Got Mail. Looking ahead a few decades, she’s nearly unrecognizable, and it’s all to remain “forever young” in the eyes of Hollywood and paparazzi.
Clearly, Ryan has had tons of work done on her face that ended up making her look even older than she actually is. For one, she had too much Botox in her forehead that's caused her eyes to look smaller. Then, there are her puffy lips that make it look like she's deathly allergic to something 24/7. Girl, put down the needle.
Daryl Hannah was an exceedingly popular actress in the ‘80s, known for her stunning good looks and good acting chops too. Most famous for her roles in Splash, Bladerunner and Steel Magnolias, after the ‘80s the roles were few and far between. And her face changed a lot more than we would have thought.
And much of that has to do with plastic surgery. In Kill Bill, she had already changed a bit but these days, plastic surgery has made her unrecognizable. We’ll never quite know what she would look like now without surgeons getting in the way, but here AI gives us some kind of idea.
Poor Mickey. He's a walking testament to how bad boxing can mess up your face. He famously had to have his face reconstructed after suffering injuries while fighting in the ring. He had five nose jobs (including one that used cartilage from his ear) and surgery to reconstruct his cheekbone after it was busted.
The sad part is the young Rourke was totally handsome. It’s almost a shame he went into boxing because with a face like that, he could have gone places. Brad Pitt who? Well, that’s all in the past now. His looks won’t recover, but he’s still a pretty good actor when all is said and done.
Everyone who's anyone knows Courteney Cox for her lovable portrayal of neat freak Monica Geller from the '90s sitcom Friends. After filming wrapped, however, fans started noticing her for more than her personality... and not in a good way. Her fillers were a glaring difference from her old appearance and all people could do was feel pity looking at her transformation for the worse. That is, until June 2017 when Cox told New Beauty that she was over the cosmetic procedures.
"I've had all my fillers dissolved. I'm as natural as I can be. I feel better because I look like myself. "I think that I now look more like the person that I was. I hope I do... I was trying to make [my face] not drop, but that made me look fake... Those aren't wrinkles — they're smile lines. I've had to learn to embrace movement and realize that fillers are not my friend."
Goldie Hawn, was both beautiful and funny at the height of her career. The actress has appeared in numerous classics over the years, like The Sugarland Express, Private Benjamin, Overboard and The First Wives Club. Roles have been rather limited these days and in part, you could probably blame that on all the plastic surgery.
But what would she look like if she never had plastic surgery? We might recognize her a little more if she aged with grace and embraced the wrinkles. While its certainly her choice what to do with her body, we couldn’t help but wonder what she should actually look like without cosmetic surgery.
For those who are younger, seeing young Donatella Versace may be a bit of a shock. The woman used to be absolutely stunning. She could be one of the models that strutted down the runway during a show, but we’re not sure where it all went wrong. Time (and probably bad plastic surgeons) have really done her dirty.
In the ‘80s and ‘90s, Donatella couldn’t seem to get tan enough. She got darker and darker, and that’s left her skin looking like worn leather. Wrinkles started popping up prematurely, so she got fillers to combat this. Now, her face looks like a total mess, but that isn’t a huge deal with you carrying the name of one of the biggest fashion brands in the world.
Whatever aging gracefully actually is, Madonna is doing the complete opposite. Her "Like a Virgin" days have long been over but she's still trying to look and act like a woman half her age and nobody is really buying into it. She seems to not realize that all the plastic surgery she had has destroyed her face.
Madonna would certainly look a lot prettier without it, as this AI shows. Maybe she wouldn't look as young as she'd like to pretend she is, but she'd certainly look easier on the eyes. All the younger boyfriends in the world can't change your true number. But whatever makes her happy I guess...
There’s no hiding the fact that Barry Manilow has been under the knife. You can see it written on his forehead and literally every part of his face. The singer and songwriter may be a legend with memorable songs, but at times, we struggle to remember what he even looked like when he was younger.
Barry Manilow’s face has changed a lot because of all the plastic surgery he has done. So much so that he’s almost unrecognizable in his younger pictures. With that said, what would he have looked like if he decided to age more gracefully? AI tells us he would look somewhat like this.
La Toya Jackson
La Toya Jackson, the fifth child of the Jackson family and sister of the legendary Michael Jackson, didn’t shy away from plastic surgery (much like her brother). And okay, she really didn’t have as much plastic surgery as her brother, and it's hard to think of anyone who has…
She’s definitely had a lot done. Much like her brother, she’s shaved down her nose to almost nothing. What does the Jackson family have against noses? We may never fully understand, but this is what she would look like if she still had one.
Wayne Newton has never explicitly stated that he’s had plastic surgery, but if you look at him, you don’t really need to be a plastic surgeon to see it. After appearing on the Bachelorette, many fans took to Twitter to comment on it and the fact that he can barely move his face.
The American singer and actor looks more like a wax figure of Wayne Newton rather than the man he used to be. And at this point, he’s almost unrecognizable without it in this AI image. He would certainly look a lot better – or rather a lot more human.
Plastic surgery is pretty prominent among soap opera stars like Lisa Rinna, so it really shouldn’t come as much of a shock that she’s had it. Nevertheless, the Days of Our Lives and Melrose Place star had a face of plastic that most of us poors just can’t relate to.
And as she gets older, the work on her face only gets worse and worse. We couldn’t even begin to tell you what she should look like as we’ve completely forgotten what she used to look like. Thankfully, we have AI to fill in the blanks and offer us a clearer picture of her face’s natural potential.
Christie Brinkley doesn’t look like it as much as others, but she has had plastic surgery. However, allegedly she underwent a different technique utilized by her surgeons, a technique called Ultherapy that is minimally invasive that prevents her from looking like a plastic doll.
This method of surgery involves strengthening skin around the neck to counteract skin sagging around certain areas of the face. And on top of this, it’s safe to say she’s had some degree of botox injections, which really seems to be the norm with Hollywood stars.
Jane Fonda was one of the most beautiful actresses of her time but altered her face to the point that we can’t recognize her. In addition to a full facelift at the age of 40, she also had a facelift at 70, in addition to breast implants. Other surgeries included a chin lift and eye surgery to eliminate the bags under her eyes.
Nevertheless, she claims she has tried to maintain the general essence of her face, saying, “I made sure that they kept my lines. I didn’t want to lose my wrinkles; I just wanted to lose the bags under my eyes. I don’t like it when it’s overdone, but we do live in a time when, if you can afford a good doctor, you can have subtle plastic surgery.”
Simon Cowell has had a history of plastic surgery that has significantly altered his face. While he claims that his face is now filler free, the effects are certainly there. And while he’s ruled out fillers, that doesn’t exactly speak for other cosmetic surgeries…
When speaking of his use of plastic surgery, Cowell told The Sun, “There was a stage where I might have gone a bit too far. I saw a picture of me from ‘before’ the other day, and didn’t recognize it as me first of all.” And while now he’s going back to basics, you have to wonder what he would look like with no plastic surgery at all.
Supermodel Cindy Crawford opened up about plastic surgery to InStyle magazine, having learned many things from her experience as one of the most famous supermodels of all time. She doesn’t regret her surgery, and that is probably because she had a better one than most of these celebrities.
She told InStyle, “I will not deceive myself in any way after a certain age creams work wonderfully for the skin. But I really rely heavily on nutrient infusions, Botox, and collagen supplements to handle the versatility. I drink a lot of water, pay close attention to what I eat, and exercise. Still, I definitely owe the beauty f my skin to my plastic surgeon.”
The former wife of Elvis, Priscilla Presley, has had her fair share of cosmetic surgeries over the years, some of which she admits was totally botched. In one such case, she was allegedly injected with a low-grade silicone by an unlicensed doctor. According to her representative, “Priscilla Presley was one of many documented victims of Dr. Daniel Serrano.”
An investigation that uncovered his misconduct ultimately led to his imprisonment. Ms. Presley dealt with this matter years ago, and everything is now well.” That is, except for her face. While she’s had corrective surgeries, you can tell she’s had work done.
Sharon Osbourne looked just fine before she jumped on the plastic surgery wagon. TV personality and wife of Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon has been quite vocal about her plastic surgery, unafraid of talking about the subject, whereas few celebrities ever do the same. In an interview with Britain’s Sunday Times, she opened up about her initial shock:
“I looked like one of those f**king mummies that they wrap (with bandages)….I’m telling you, it was horrendous. I’m, like, ‘You’ve got to be f**king joking.’ One eye was different to the other. I looked like a f**king Cyclops.” But since her surgery, her face has settled, and she’s much more comfortable with the results.
The Godfather himself, Al Pacino, may have gone under the radar with this one, but if you look carefully, it’s clear he’s had some work done. But to be fair, his work is minimal compared to others and not super noticeable. He looks too good for his age, and surgery has come into play there.
Plastic surgery that Pacino has had likely includes botox and a minor facelift. Some rumors have even suggested that he might have gotten his nose done, but we personally don’t see it. Whatever the truth may be, our AI gives Pacino a different look than we are used to.
While the results look better than some of the stars on this list, Michelle Pfiffer has been rumored to have rhinoplasty, cheek implants and even a facelift. Although she doesn’t look terrible, it doesn seem suspicious just how good she looks for her age.
Llet’s say she is all natural or at the very least had botox injections. We had to ask AI what a normal woman with Michelle Pfeiffer’s looks would look like today. These were the results, and we have to say, she probably would look a whole lot different with a face full of makeup.
Demi Moore no longer looks anything like she did back in the ‘90s. Making a runway appearance back in 2021, she shocked fans with her brand-new look. Most people didn’t even recognize her. She was so different, she didn’t even look like she could be Demi Moore’s stunt double.
Fortunately, she looks a lot better now than she did on the runway back in 2021, but she still doesn’t quite look like herself. That being said, here we have AI here to fill in the blanks for us and give us a glimpse of what she would look like without damaging her face.
It's hard to believe actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who is so obsessed with healthy lifestyle trends and natural ingredients, would go the way of plastic surgery. Still, it’s becoming exceedingly clear that she has, as the wrinkles she once sported are disappearing before our very eyes.
Back in 2013, she told Harper's Bazaar she would never get plastic surgery, saying, "I would be scared to go under the knife, but you know, talk to me when I'm 50. I'll try anything. Except I won't do Botox again because I looked crazy. I looked like Joan Rivers!"
For a while, Nicole Kidman was one of the great beauties of Hollywood, but post-Tom Cruise, she made a few alterations. For some reason, the actress denies this, aside from past use of botox. Still, it's hard to believe, considering she can barely move her face in the series Big Little Lies.
Of course, nobody knows the truth but her. And whether it's just a ton of makeup she’s wearing over her face or she’s had a facelift, it's hard to deny that something looks amiss. And with that said, AI tells us what a woman the age of 55 years should look like — especially after dating Tom Cruise.
The iconic ‘80s actress Jennifer Grey, star of one of the worst movies ever made (Dirty Dancing) and one of the best movies ever made (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), was a real beauty back in the day. But time changes everything, and she doesn’t quite look as we’d expect her to.
Grey chose not to age the natural way, however, electing to get a ton of plastic surgery. Listening to bad advice from her mother, she ended up getting her nose done and then became unrecognizable to herself, according to her memoir Out of the Corner.
Joan Rivers really became the poster child for plastic surgery. Making jokes about celebrities at a time when it was okay for people to make jokes about celebrities without their pride getting hurt, Joan Rivers also wasn’t afraid to make fun of herself either, including all the plastic surgery she had.
But since 2014, the jokes have come to a screeching halt, and we’ll never know what Joan Rivers would look like if she were alive today, particularly if she never had plastic surgery. Or will we? Here’s what AI tells us Joan Rivers would have looked like if she were alive and not all done up.
Allegedly, she hasn’t had surgery so far but has considered it. She wrote in a social media post, “I was thinking about getting a boob job. My boobs are fairly small. I mean with the right bra it’s fine, but I was curious what a doctor would say! I lost seven pounds in the last six months and that’s a lot for me! I’m officially part of the ‘itty bitty titty committee.’ They shrunk!”
Plastic surgery or not, Britney Spears looks incredible for her age. If you’ve seen her Instagram, she has a body that defies the laws of time. While some of that is good genes, just how much of it is the help of plastic surgery? Nobody can tell us that better than Spears. But the AI suggests that she just might have…
John Travolta has denied having plastic surgery, but it's hard to explain what would have happened to his dimpled chin if her didn’t. His looks really speak for themselves. Plastic surgery or not, there’s at least some Scientology voodoo going on here, and it makes us somewhat uncomfortable.
But let’s say that he did in fact have plastic surgery. What should he look like? AI gives us these results, and it really puts things into perspective. Whether or not he’s had some surgery or a few injections, we’ll leave you up to determine.
Pamela Anderson has long utilized the services of plastic surgeons to alter her appearance, so much so that we aren’t even quite sure what her natural form would even look like. However, recently Anderson told Howard Stern she’s leaving all that behind to embrace a more natural look, and here AI shows us what that might look like.
Pamela added, “I can’t wait to see myself old…I never felt like I was any kind of great beauty, ever, no, just a little funny looking.” And while we may not be able to recognize her new look, we certainly doubt she won’t look beautiful with her real and natural appearance.
Portia De Rossi
Wife of Ellen DeGeneres, actress Portia De Rossi was stunningly gorgeous when she was on Arrested Development, but she too fell into the plastic surgery trap. And while she’s still beautiful, she doesn’t look like the same Lindsay we remember from the earlier seasons.
In Season 4 of the cult comedy favorite, Lindsay Bluthe returns with a brand-new face, and since so much time has passed, we’ll never know what she would have looked like today without it. That being said, our AI took a guess and came up with this.
