Ahhh, Before and After pics—the best way to see the drastic change in reference to someone and/or something. Take for instance, a before image of a rundown house versus an after image of the same house with renovations. Or, a before photo of Oprah Winfrey and Al Sharpton fat bodied vs. an after photo of Oprah and Al skinny, resembling bobbleheads. As you can now vividly picture, before and afters are essentially night and day; two completely different things.
There are several celebrities that fall victim to the same before and after effect. There's how the celebs look after they are dazzled up with makeup and wardrobe—that's how they appear when you see them in the movies, on TV, on stage and/or in magazines; that's when they're on their 'A game' and at their best. Then, of course...there's before the celebs hit the set and get dolled up; they're dressed down, without makeup, hair looking a hot mess; all-natural in a sense. We've come across various before pics of some of our most beloved celebs, and let us warn you: they're beyond a doozy! Check out below 15 celebrities that actually look WAY worse in person.
It was always a debate of who was the hotter friend: Monica or Rachel? Phoebe Buffay was no slouch in the looks department now, however on Friends, it was all about Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) and Monica (Courteney Cox). Some said Monica was prettier; others said Rachel was the pick of the litter. The debate still takes place to this day. We'll tell you what's not up for debate though — Aniston, off-camera, is busted like an infidel on Cheaters!
It appears on an average day, the 48-year-old actress is FAR from the dazzling dirty blonde were used to seeing in movies and reruns. Justin Theroux (her husband) would beg to differ, but in the flesh, Aniston is about as appealing as Wesley Snipes in a dress.⬇️
Katie Holmes first achieved fame for her role as Joey Potter on The WB television teen drama Dawson's Creek (1998-2003). From the first time viewers laid eyes on Holmes, she was classed as one of Hollywood's foxiest actresses. From her big endearing eyes to her naturally lopsided smile, Katie's always a honorable mention when it comes to actors that could get it six ways from Sunday. Though if the real Katie Holmes (seen above) walked by us, only thing she could get from Sunday is a rapidly drawn crucifix and some holy water thrown in her face!
In the flesh, the Batman Begins actress is fairly hard on the eyes. Dramatic ain't it! Funny part is, our initial reaction to the above images...is the exact same one Katie's giving in the below gif!
If you had to caption the photo on the right, how would it read? "Mmmmmm, cheeseburger (Homer Simpson voice)"... would be ours! All that's missing is drool on the side of her mouth.
Supermodel, Tyra Banks (and we use the term 'supermodel' loosely), has made a living strictly off of her looks. Banks began her modeling career at the age of 15, and was the first African American woman to be featured on the covers of both GQ and the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, on which she appeared twice. She was also Victoria's Secret Angel from 1997 to 2005. By the early 2000s, Banks was one of the world's top-earning models.
Evidently off the runway, Banks' appearance potentially triggers folks to 'runway' — run-A-way! Ha ha, more so run-DAT-way ?
No, the photo on the left of Madonna is NOT Photoshopped! Okay, now that that's out of the way...let's continue. Referred to as the "Queen of Pop", Madonna is renowned for pushing the boundaries of lyrical content in mainstream popular music as well as visual imagery in music videos and live performances. Those visual images were mainly risqué, forever displaying the singer's eroticism and beauty. Nevertheless, in real life, the "Vogue" singer is NOTHING like the persona she evokes on the screen.
In a 2015 interview, Madonna explained why men her age simply aren't dateable. Though the pressing question is—is SHE dateable!? What male's gonna be able to withstand, when she steps fresh out of the shower and lotions up those arms in front of him? We'll tell you who...a male with an open mind and a VERY strong stomach.
Mila Kunis was only 14 when she auditioned for That '70s Show. When producers asked her age, she curved them by saying, "Well, I'll be 18 on my birthday." and neglected to say what year. Since stepping on the screen as 'Jackie Burkhart', the world to this day has been engulfed in Kunis' on-screen beauty. From Ted to Bad Moms, millions of men (and women too!) have gazed at the screen, drooling at the actress' picturesque face and dark features. Well slurp that saliva back up fellas, because in-person...Kunis looks really, REALLY different!
The below image indicates to us strongly, that Kunis' bff's are indeed her husband and Maybelline. Imagine, when Kutcher rolls over in the morning and this ⤵ smacks him in the face. ¡Ay, caramba!
There's no argument, that Lindsay Lohan is smoking hot on-screen (especially in Machete!). A natural red head (note: less than 2% of the world's population have red hair; that's approximately 140 million people) with striking blue eyes and a mouth-watering bod (5'5", 115 lbs, 32D), Lohan is literally a dream come true...well, perhaps more like a nightmare come true! As evidenced by the above pics, off-screen, Lindsay Lohan looks like a WHOLE 'nother person.
Could you fathom in public running into the "Rumors" singer while looking like this ⬆?? You probably don't even want to imagine that...it's enough to scar you for life! Next time you watch Mean Girls, The Parent Trap or Freaky Friday, just know know something TOTALLY different lies on the other side of door #2.
35-year-old Britney Spears, is loving her new younger man Sam Asghari (who's 23!). Reportedly, the "Womanizer" singer is VERY happy with Asghari and he makes her feel youthful again. That's sweet. Although, we wonder how she makes him feel...when he sees her like ⬆ this!
More and more over the years, Spears has been sighted and photographed in public looking tore up from the floor up. From shaved heads to double chins, the How I Met Your Mother guest star has been the subject of numerous memes on the net due to her alarming appearances. Brit routinely steps out on the scene with a "take it or leave it" kind of demeanor. Okay well, we'll take it...and then leave it in the middle of the woods somewhere!
"I don't want to be perfect, but I do want to be a role model. My mom always tells me that imperfections equal beauty. All of us are imperfect." — is one of Miley Cyrus' most notable quotes. We agree with Tish Cyrus (Miley's mom) in reference to imperfections equaling beauty. Even so, the above images of prove Miley took the statement "imperfections equal beauty" at face value!
The "Malibu" singer looks shockingly different in person. Seriously...we're talking pale skin, chapped lips, acne, botched hair, the whole shabang. They say, "it's what on the inside that counts" though—therefore, Cyrus must have the bomb diggity personality in order to snag the likes of Liam Hemsworth! If they get married, let's just hope their kids take after Liam looks-wise.
After viewing the above images, it's hard to conceive that Fergie is actually the FACE of The Black Eyed Peas! Ferg officially joined BEP in 2003, after Will.i.am invited her to try out for a song called "Shut Up"; the following spring, Interscope chairman Jimmy Iovine offered Fergie a permanent spot to take over vocal duties. In June of this year, rumors surfaced that Fergie left the BEP; however Will.i.am confirmed that was only gossip.
On television, the "M.i.l.f. $" singer resembles nothing but hotness—from her buxom frame to her lovely face. They say, "looks can be deceiving"; no, TV can be deceiving! Outside of the TV, in-person, Fergie's bout as appetizing as eating cold black eyed peas off of a public bathroom floor.
Holy hell ? Sorry, just these pics of Cameron Diaz caught us off guard. At the age of 21, Diaz auditioned for The Mask playing the torrid smooth jazz singer Tina Carlyle. Having no previous acting experience, Diaz began acting lessons after being cast. Following it's 1994 release, The Mask launched Diaz as a sex symbol. However, the above images of the actress off-the-set reveal that the only thing Diaz symbolizes is O-M-G (Oh My Goodness!).
Indeed, Cameron Diaz is one of those Hollywood'ers that looks completely different in person. So much so, you may not even recognize her if she were to cross your path. At home, some people have personal chefs and servants—we'd hope instead, Diaz has a personal makeup artist in her house and on-call 24/7!
Knocked Up is celebrating it's 10 year anniversary this year. The classic with Seth Rogen, displayed a very hot non-preggo and preggo Katherine Heigl; she was literally glowing in the picture. Fast forward to 2017—in Unforgettable with Rosario Dawson, Heigl's still ravishing as she sports her signature ponytail whilst attempting to destroy and kill her husband's new fiancé. All the same, take away the cameras and makeup...Heigl's physical appearance gets a 1 out of 5 stars rating!
Thanks to the paps, we're all now cognizant of the Life as We Know It actress' homely presence when off the set. Rather than "YOLO", it appears Heigl's life motto is "IDGAF".
The very first thing that popped into your mind when you saw the above pics of Pam Anderson was, "Who the hell is that? That ain't no Pamela Lee!" Bwahaha, we know...because that's the first thing that popped into our heads. Forget Pam Anderson—she's more like DAMN Anderson [now] if anything!
Pamela Denise Anderson, is by far the most famous Playboy cover model ever. She first appeared as the cover girl on Playboy magazine's October 1989 issue. Anderson's Playboy career spans 22 years, and she has appeared on more Playboy covers than any other model. If going by the above images, it's incredibly difficult to believe Anderson is Playboy's G.O.A.T. (Greatest of all Time). In essence, Pam's status: from the neck-down, ✔ from the neck-up, ?
Kendra Wilkinson is mostly known for being one of Hugh Hefner's 3 girlfriends (Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt were other two) and for her role on the E! reality television series The Girls Next Door, on which her life in the Playboy Mansion was documented. Although not a Playboy Playmate, Kendra has appeared in three nude pictorials with Madison and Marquardt. Her first TV reality series, Kendra, debuted in June 2009.
We've seen a lot of Kendra over the years, from the roota to the toota...though, we've never quite seen her like ⬆ this! Clearly when the cameras stop rolling and the pictures cease flashing, Kendra transmutes into her natural-born self and that self is a bit uninviting (and 'a bit' is putting it lightly!).
In the 1980's and 1990's, Heather Locklear was perhaps the most beautiful actress in all of Hollywood. She is best known for her television role as Amanda Woodward on Melrose Place (1993–99), for which she received 4 consecutive Golden Globe nominations. From motion pictures Money Talks to Scary Movie 5, Locklear on-screen has captivated audiences everywhere with her deliciousness. Well we've come to find out, that off-screen, The TJ Hooker actress is 'bout as delicious as a spoonful of castor oil!
The photo on the right especially...WTH? Is that even her [Heather Locklear]? Yes friends, it's unimpeachably her. DRASTIC difference, right? Just goes to show you, how misleading makeup and TV/movies can be. So, the next time you watch some Spin City reruns, just know Caitlin Moore does not look like that in true life!
Kim K was named the “Hottest Woman in the World” by the U.K.'s Zoo magazine back in 2012. Coincidence the name of the publication is ZOO mag? We think not! In person, face-to-face, Kardashian all-natural is a little National Geographic'ish. Strip away makeup and hair spray, and Kim looks like an extra on The Munsters. You can see her and Eddie Munster now crushing on each other in school!
The popular phrase, "everything that glitters isn't gold", is entirely evidenced in these pics. On TV and in the mags, Kim Kardashian is one of the most sexiest women walking on the green earth...though it's when the clothes and makeup come off, and the cellulite and blemished face emerge that we get to see the KUWTK star in her true light. Well, someone shut that light off quick! We rather some things just remain in the dark.
