10 Hottest celebrities who aged awfully
Celebrities age as normal people do. Despite the fact that they have money to try out different remedies, medications and surgical options to try and delay the onset of age related effects.
Well age is sometimes kind to people and the looks of people do not get distorted, if they take care of themselves in younger days. Eat properly, take care of their skins and health and generally avoid any harmful addictions; people can age gracefully without the help of any surgical or medical manipulation needed.
While sometimes, habits such as drug, alcohol and stress lead to the process of ageing advancing at a rate which is far higher than one would normally see. Celebs are prone to such fast rated ageing process due to their stress related work nature and habit of opting for surgical implants and enhancements in young age to enhance their beauty. Such options do not age well and results in old age are a look that is very different from younger days.
Here are 10 such celebs to whom ageing didn’t go so well.
10 Val Kilmer
Val Kilmer has played iconic characters like the Batman and Jim Morrison (lead singer of the Doors) on the big screen.
He probably let himself go after his career took a nose dive in the late 90s. Though he made a bit of a comeback with a brilliant role in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005), Kilmer still yearns for the status he had during his peak times. Today his family is worried that he might not be well and avoiding proper treatment due to his Christian Scientist beliefs.
9 Keith Richards
Lead guitarist of the legendary band the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards is now 71 years old and has probably spent more than half of that life doing drugs, alcohol and partying. He was also listed as the 4th greatest guitarist in the world by the Rolling Stone Magazine in its 100 Best Guitarist list.
It is almost unbelievable that he is still alive and kicking due to the hectic and stressful life he has led. He has suffered the effects of drug abuse and alcohol, leading him aging very badly and losing his good looks.
8 Nick Nolte
One of the sexiest men in 1992, a former model and an academy award nomination, these are some of the accomplishments of actor Nick Nolte.
Nolte admitted to use GHB regularly throughout his life and also has been arrested by the law many times and one of those resulted in the above famous mugshot.
7 Brigitte Bardot
Time has not been kind to sex symbol of 1950s and 60s Brigitte Bardot. One of the most acclaimed French film actresses; she started out as a model and later found work in Hollywood. After immense fame and awards, she chose to retire from the limelight in 1973.
Today, at 80 years of age, Bardot is a living example of the hard hand nature plays to some people. Old age always gets to us, no matter how beautiful you were.
6 Axl Rose
Guns N’ Roses lead singer Axl Rose also hasn’t aged well. One of the most famous singers, Axl Rose admitted to using drugs and alcohol, but to never get addicted to a particular kind.
He said, “I have a different physical constitution and different mindset about drugs than anybody I’ve known in Hollywood, because I don’t abstain from doing drugs, but I won’t allow myself to have a habit. I won’t allow it.”
He has had issues with bipolar disorder and has been on and off the medication.
5 Tara Reid
Tara Reid is another sad example of pitfalls of plastic surgery. A regular of American Pie franchise, Reid admitted to having breast augmentation and liposuction and the surgery being botched.
Tara Reid used to look beautiful naturally, but in the want of looking more beautiful, she opted for surgery and now has to live with a ruined physique. She will be turning 40 soon and has been battling health problems such as weight fluctuation and skin issues.
4 Joan Van Ark
TV star Joan Van Ark looks like a plastic doll put together hastily. A natural beauty, she decided to go the plastic surgery route in order to enhance her aging beauty.
But too many facelifts, cheek implants and lip injections have left her looking like a failed experiment of plastic surgery. Van Ark is now at a point where more surgery won’t fix the damage already done.
3 Mickey Rourke
One of the hottest stars of 1980s and early 90s, Rourke had the looks that a Hollywood hero should have. He also starred in some of the most acclaimed hits such as Barfly and Angel Heart. He was also nominated for academy award for his 2008 hit the Wrestler.
Mickey Rourke is also a trained boxer and left the acting world in 1991 for boxing ring and that changed his life forever. Apparently taking punches to your face is not good for anyone who also acts for a living. He had to get some plastic surgery done due to damage on his face done by boxing. And when he returned to the acting fold, his face looked drastically different.
Now he looks like his face was battered and put together hastily.
2 Janice Dickinson
One of the earliest supermodels, Janice Dickinson hasn’t aged well at all.
This is attributed to her partying lifestyle, experiments with drugs and alcohol. She also admitted to having multiple plastic surgeries on her face, breasts augmentation and liposuction. For someone who used to be so beautiful and attractive naturally, age and plastic surgery has betrayed her completely as she says she doesn’t regret anything.
1 Lindsay Lohan
Well you feature on a list of celebs that haven’t aged well at the age of 30, something went terribly wrong somewhere. For Lindsay Lohan the biggest culprit for her addicted and aged look are alcohol and drug addiction.
Her last big hit was in 2004 and since then she has been in news mostly for her drug and alcohol related incident. Also her high handedness has caused very few takers in film industry for this once talented actress.
