Getting work done is pretty common in Hollywood. In fact, some people suggest that there isn't a single star out there who hasn't made at least a few small tweaks to their appearance in an effort to stay young and beautiful looking. There certainly does seem to be a lot of pressure to look perfect, and when some people are making the changes, other people feel like also going under the knife is the only real way to compete. Unfortunately, this can sometimes have the opposite effect of the desired result and just leave people looking weird. Many celebs own up to their procedures since it's obvious and they figure might as well discuss it. But then other people try to deny it for the sake of their personal privacy...even when it's very obvious that they did something. The following celebs try (and often fail) at denying their history with getting work done.
15 Megan Fox Claims those Lips Belong to Her
Megan Fox has tried to say that her lips are real, but it seems obvious that that isn't true by any photo comparison to her younger years."I will say for people who question the authenticity of my lips, you can clearly see that my lips are my lips." They used to be thinner, now they are plumper. Not only that, but Megan seems to have had quite a lot of other work done to her face, such as a nose job, cheek enhancements, etc. She looks very different than she did in her younger years, and not just in the sense that she "grew up." With the help of some procedures and injectibles, it seems as though Megan intentionally took her look to a whole different level. Megan has also said that she thinks that people should go to therapy before they get any work done to make sure that they are on the correct path and doing it for the right reasons. She wisely warns that fixing the face won't fix the underlying issues.
14 Mariah Carey Doesn't Own Up to that Nose Job
Mariah Carey has never confirmed getting a nose job, but it certainly looks different than it did when she was younger. The tip is more refined and overall it just looks smaller. Some people also suspect that the star has gotten a boob job since her boobs look way bigger. Mariah has been photographed by the paparazzi heading into a popular cosmetics center in Beverly Hills, but those places also do all kinds of treatments such as facials and laser treatments. That alone doesn't necessarily mean anything either way. Mariah has never spoken out about her fresh new look, and she doesn't really even talk about her looks that much either. She has, however, recently launched a beauty brand with Stella Bulochnikov which will be in brick and mortar stores. She clearly cares about looking fabulous but seems to be relatively discerning about what she chooses to share with her fans and she does not.
13 Blake Lively Refuses to Confirm or Deny
Blake Lively is known for being pretty private overall, so it's not too surprising that she has never spoken out about that nose job. But let's be honest, she got one. It is a great nose job though. It's a good example of the nose being made smaller and proportionate to her face without looking vastly different from the shape of the nose that she was born with. It's subtle and yet not all once. Other than that Blake seems to be pretty natural and free of other enhancements. The actress doesn't even seem like the type to wear a lot of makeup and her style is relatively conservative. Blake has shared some of her beauty secrets in the past that confirm how down to earth she is. She has said that she doesn't rely on professional skin treatments because she would rather spend time with her friends and family. She has also explained that on an average day her hairstyling routine involves throwing up her hair into a ballerina bun to allow it to air dry.
12 John Travolta Doesn't Own Up
John Travolta has never admitted to getting work done but he hasn't seemed to age in a traditional fashion. When he starred on The People Vs OJ Simpson many people spoke out about his looks and actually said that they were distracted by his face. Some said that he was even unrecognizable. There was a bit of confusion over the looks sudden appearance on the TV show since people were wondering if that was supposed to be part of his character or if that was just how he looked now. There was a very smooth and tight look to his skin that didn't seem to be a part of his look before. One notable change is his hairline. He used to have a widow's peak and now it seems as though he is wearing a hairpiece that has a different shape. Or perhaps he got plugs. It is understandable that John might be interested in maintaining his good looks, but at a certain point sometimes embracing the inevitable is a better look than trying to be too youthful.
11 Miranda Kerr Credits the Bra
Miranda Kerr has never admitted to getting that boob job and in fact, she likes to give credit to her bras. But perhaps that's also just a simple marketing tactic since she is an underwear model overall. But let's be reasonable here, that is not the job of a push-up bikini top, that's the job of a doctor. The boob job came shortly after her breakup with ex Orlando Bloom, so perhaps the enhancement was what she needed to do to boost her self-esteem and get back out there in the dating world. If that's what she was going for it seemed to work, because she has since married Snapchat CEO Even Spiegel. Interestingly, those two decided to remain abstinent until they got married. They actually met as friends the year after Miranda got divorced from Orlando and then within the following year their friendship developed into more.
10 Halle Berry Has Never Spoken About that Nose Job
Halle Berry has never commented on her nose job but the actress clearly got one. In comparing photos of her younger self to what she looks like now it seems obvious that she took off some of the size and refined the tip so that it would look a bit more petite. This is an incredibly popular move in Hollywood since the camera tends to exaggerate and call attention to the nose and the shadows it creates on the face. Way more so than in person. You can imagine that seeing yourself on camera all the time would lead you to consider perfecting things a bit. It seems to be a very popular trend. Halle has said that many people try to push getting work done on her in the industry. She has said that it is like "crack" in Hollywood and that there is a lot of pressure to do it. "When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, 'To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?'''
9 Melanie Griffith Says She Opts Out of the Knife
Melanie Griffith has actually denied getting anything done, but then she has also admitted that there was a bit of filling going on. Sometimes celebs just refuse to comment and hope that will do the trick. However, it seems pretty obvious that there has actually been quite a bit of work done here, perhaps even stuff done to her jawline and chin. She seems to be a bit overly puffy all around which can be a sign that someone is overdoing it on the dermal fillers. Sometimes as women age they try to replenish the lost volume in their face with fillers, but too much of it or any of it in the wrong place just looks plain weird. It sounds like she eventually realized that she was doing too much. "No, I didn't [realize] until people started saying, 'Oh my god, what has she done?!' I was so hurt. I went to a different doctor, and he started dissolving all of this s--t that this other woman doctor had put in. Hopefully, I look more normal now."
8 Tom Cruise Keeps Pretty Quiet
Tom Cruise has never spoken out about getting work done, but it sure looks like he did. Tom seems to have gotten a nose job to thin that out a bit, and it also looks like he's had some work done to his jaw to create the more defined, manly look. Where he had some laxity in his youth, his face later looks taught and more defined. That isn't usually the natural progression of the aging process. Tom looks just natural enough to not call crazy attention to the work that he's had done, and yet it's clear that he has when you do a side by side comparison. Whoever his doctor is, is actually did a really good job at making sure that he still looks natural enough to not be too obvious about it. Men, in particular, are at risk for looking too "done" even with just minor tweaks since they traditionally don't spend as much time and effort trying to alter their appearance or chase perfection when compared to women.
7 Lil Kim Straight Up Denies It
Lil Kim has totally denied getting anything done, but my goodness, that seems to be ridiculous. Lil Kim has had a slowly altering appearance all throughout her time in the spotlight, and then eventually she just turned up looking totally unrecognizable. Her face is different, her nose is different, and even her skin color is different. It's not only shocking when changes to the face get that extreme, but it's also sad. It's likely that there's a bit of an addiction going on, or at least some confusion about the state of reality. Sometimes when people start down the quest for perfection they aren't happy inside but feel like changing their exterior will help them feel happier. That's rarely the case when the inside is not being worked on at the same time. Since one procedure doesn't make them feel happier, they might be more likely to move on to another procedure, and then another, and then another.
6 Kim Zolciak Says "Nope" on the New Nose Rumor
Real housewife Kim Zolziak says that she has not gotten a nose job, but it sure looks like she did. It's sort of hard to imagine why she would bother denying something like that. The other possibility is that she changed the shape of her nose with dermal filler injections, which can create some pretty dramatic changes to one's appearance. If that was the case then she could say that technically she did not have any work on her nose, but that doesn't mean that she didn't change its shape with the help of a doctor. Whatever Kim has been doing she actually looks much younger and more plastic in her after photos. Her skin tone appears smoother, her cheekbones look a bit lifted, her makeup is certainly different. Getting work done or altering the appearance seems to be a very popular choice with the Real Housewives ladies.
5 Donatella Versace Says it's Just Botox
Donatella Versace has claimed the changes made to her face are just from the use of Botox, to which we say, WTF? She looks like an entirely different woman, and Botox alone doesn't do that. Sure it can freeze the muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but it doesn't alter the shape of everything on the face. She has admitted that she doesn't look like her real self, but explains it with simple skin treatments. “I’m not like this genetically. I use tons of cream and take care of my hair and skin.” Hmm. Donatella does seem to have some interesting approaches to taking care of herself. She has also shared that she used to work with a trainer to keep her body in shape but decided to stop using his services since he wouldn't allow her to smoke cigarettes. Interesting choice to blatently ignore some pretty valid advice.
4 Meg Ryan Doesn't Talk About It
Meg Ryan doesn't talk about the changes that she has made to her face but she has clearly done plenty of them. There was a specific time that Meg stepped out looking like an entirely different woman than fans were used to seeing. For the most part, it seems as though Meg went overboard with the dermal fillers and Botox. It's hard to imagine who these doctors are that do too much, since it is possible to achieve some great results from face treatments that look a bit more natural. You'd think that the biggest stars in the world with full bank accounts would be able to track down some doctors who could do the right thing. It's common for people to try and put filler in the apples of the cheeks to look more youthful and lift up the face...but the problem is that it can then look puffy and cause the eyes to squint when someone smiles. That looks unnatural and puffy when compared to their pre-cheek boosted face.
3 Kylie Said Her New Boobs Were from Her Period
No one should be surprised that Kylie Jenner lies about getting work done, but while she has owned up to her lip injections she hasn't really spoken about the other stuff that she's gotten done. Kylie went the route of redoing her entire body, including fillers in the face, a boob job, and a Brazilian butt job if not more than that. The shape of her face and entire body is totally different than what she looked like before she started getting work done. When Kylie first got her boobs done she quickly took them to Snapchat to show them off in some dramatic ways. When people asked about the obvious augmentation she said they were just bigger because she was on her period. It's interesting that she is showy when she doesn't want to talk about it. Kylie recently admitted that she wanted to get her lips done after a comment from a boy that left her feeling undesirable in a sexy way.
2 Did JLo Get a Nose Job?
Jennifer Lopez looks pretty natural and amazing, but when her current looks are compared to her younger looks, things seem different. She seems to have a more glam look than she was younger, which screams getting work done. If anything, she seems to have had her nose slimmed out a bit, which as we've seen is a pretty popular choice in Hollywood. She has straight up come out and said that she has never had any procedure done of any kind, however. This could be a situation where she has been getting work done by other means besides going under the knife which is always possible and a great way to deny these claims. Or she could simply be lying to cover up a nose job for some reason. Either way, JLo is naturally one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. There is certainly a lot that can be accomplished by simply taking care of yourself. Jennifer is one of those people who avoids alcohol in an effort to stay looking fresh.
1 Nicole Kidman Doesn't Own Up to Anything
Nicole Kidman has not owned up to getting any work done, but the Australian actress looks very different than she did when she was younger. She once said “To be honest, I am completely natural. I have nothing in my face or anything. No procedures for me; I did try Botox, unfortunately, but I got out of it and now I can finally move my face again... I wear sunscreen, I don't smoke, and I take care of myself, and I am proud to say that." However, Nicole's looks have seemed to change frequently and on some occasions people have commented that her changing looks seem a bit like a wax figure. In some photos, it looks like Nicole has had a nose job, and she seems to have gotten some fillers in the face to keep up a youthful look and avoid a sagging face. Other people suggest that she might have had a mini face lift and that she has some filler in the lower face area to make her shape more appealing. What do you think?
