Ah, to be young and beautiful. Two of the most valuable states of being, according to society. While both are equally ephemeral, one will undoubtedly come to a screeching halt one day, and the other is grasped on to for dear life as the years fly by. These 11 formerly gorgeous stars didn't hold on quite tight enough to their once striking good looks. Though many desperately attempted to; made obvious by the botched plastic surgeries. Growing old has its advantages. For one, as time passes, we exchange youth for wisdom. But if you could give up a few brain cells each year to keep sipping from the fountain of youth, would you do it?
Looking as good as Halle Berry and Jennifer Lopez, who both turn 50 in less than 5 years, isn't a simple task. It requires taking great care of the body that is your temple. These two super star women dispel the belief that youth is synonymous with beauty. Their beauty has far outlasted their youth. It’s somewhat ridiculous to hold genetics solely responsible for how we age, when everything we put into our bodies today, affects how it appears and functions way into the distant future. That includes food and drugs. If only someone would’ve told Britney that in 2002.
It’s not easy watching your looks fade, especially when it’s your primary source of income; and a damn lucrative one at that. Unfortunately in many cases, no amount of money will truly reverse the hands of time, but if you’re taking great measures to stay healthy, then your odds of retaining your youthful looks increase exponentially. Here are 11 celebrities who quite frankly, didn't take proper care of themselves in the past which eventually cost them their looks.
11 Britney Spears
10 Lark Voorhies
9 Pamela Anderson
8 Nikki Cox
7 Priscilla Presley
6 Cameron Diaz
5 Lindsay Lohan
4 Brooke Shields
3 Janice Dickinson
2 Elizabeth Taylor
1 Brigitte Bardot
Hollywood icon Brigitte Bardot made her film debut in And God Created Woman, as the seductive temptress Juliete Hardy, a role that initiated the stereotype for the sexually liberated french woman. The young beauty enjoyed a very fruitful career that lasted two decades before she suddenly left Hollywood due to the burden of celebrity life. While the rest of the world found her to be beautiful, she considered herself ugly. Bridget also could't put up with being envied, stalked, scrutinized and demonized. In 1973, when she filmed her final movie at age 39, the natural beauty packed up and left for the south of France where she's been living for the past 40 years. Now an animal rights activist, Bridget has found solace away from the glare of the public eye, and has also let herself go, no longer having to deal with the pressures of Tinseltown.
