There’s pros and cons to everything you do in life, especially when it comes to plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures. We’re all under pressure of looking young these days. But no one is under more pressure of staying young and looking great than celebrities. Their job depends on them looking good. So it makes sense that celebs are the most likely candidates for all sorts of beautifying procedures. Today we’ll take a look at famous celebs who decided to get Botox injections in order to keep their faces looking young and wrinkle-free.
Botox isn’t something new. This word is thrown around a lot lately, as if it’s something absolutely safe, pain free and has absolutely no side-effects. Of course, if you’re getting Botox injections done by a professional it should be absolutely safe and you should get the desired results. But let’s not forget that Botox injections essentially paralyze your face muscles, so that you can’t move them, and therefore you can’t develop wrinkles. So in order to stay wrinkle-free, these celebs are also bargaining their ability to express emotions with their face, something that’s kind of important for actors.
1. Courteney Cox
We all know and love Courtney Cox as Monica from Friends. But as much as it pains me to say, Friends ended and it’s been years since then. Even though Friends will always stay young in our hearts, the years are taking their toll on the actors who played our beloved characters. Cortney still has a killer body, as you can see in Cougar Town, but at 52 it’s not that easy to keep your face wrinkle-free and glowing. So Courtney opted for Botox, but don’t you think her face looks a bit plastic now? Then again, if I could look like Courtney does at 52, I’d be happy.
2. Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey is only 31, but clearly she’s had something done. There’s rumors that she got collagen fillers and lip injections, or perhaps Botox injections. Why? Supposedly to change her image and finally get a break through. You can see by the photos that she looks a bit different. But Lana Del Rey denies having anything done. She says she’s just naturally quite pouty and that’s just how she looks when she sings.
3. Uma Thurman
When Uma Thurman shows up to a red-carpet looking like this, the rumors started flying around like crazy. So many people were speculating whether she got plastic surgery done or if it’s Botox. There were so many headlines saying that she got something done. However, Uma Thurman is just calling those rumors nasty and says it was just an experimental makeup look that no-one liked.
4. Renee Zellweger
No one really knows what happened to Renee Zellweger. We all loved her as Bridget Jones and she always looked hella cute with her lovely cheeks and pursed lips. However, she then disappeared from Hollywood for a while and when she came back she looked completely different. She doesn’t even look like herself anymore. Is that just weight loss or is it something more? We can only guess.
5. Megan Fox
Megan Fox’s face just keeps changing and transforming through the years. And while this new face looks more glamorous and polished, it also looks a bit weird, plastic and fake, don’t you think? Looking at her forehead, we’re pretty sure that’s botox, but the rest of her face – that definitely looks like plastic surgery and fillers.
6. Cindy Crawford
Cindy actually seems to be aging gracefully. Sure, she probably does a bit of botox now to avoid excessive wrinkles, but you’ve got to agree that she still looks very natural and gorgeous in a whole new different way.
7. Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields is another wonderful example of a gorgeous woman, aging in a lovely way. She looks great, without trying to look like a teenager. Obviously just having nice genetics helps, but let’s be real, at 51 a bit of botox probably went into the mix to keep Brooke looking awesome.
8. Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan used to be such a cutie. Remember her in Mean Girls? Wasn’t she just the most adorable girl ever? Well, let’s be real, years have passed, and she’s like what, 30 now? Obviously she’s going to change. But it doesn’t take a genius to realize that what she looks like right now has been influenced by her drug/alcohol problems and, consecutively, plastic surgery and Botox. A bad outcome here and maybe a reason to cool it on drugs and alcohol.
