Hollywood is often criticized for the impossible standards they put on women to appear as thin as possible, as well as completely free of wrinkles or any signs of aging. While this is an industry that is supposed to be filled with the most beautiful people in the world, it’s hard to deny that many of the starlets in the entertainment industry have been surgically enhanced. From breast augmentation to cheek implants, it’s amazing that so many celebrities have been able to just pawn off their seemingly “perfect” features over the years. To be fair, there are some celebrities that have truly enhanced their looks via a trip to the plastic surgeon and it’s not like they’ve been shunned for trying to improve themselves or boost their confidence. In fact, in many cases these celebrities have been hailed for their transformation, like in the case of Jessica Simpson’s younger sister, Ashlee Simpson. The world was first introduced to her as the rebellious younger sister that was trying her hand in the music industry and her entire climb to the top was chronicled via her reality series. Yet, as soon as she reached a certain level of fame, she went in for a nose job and now she looks nothing like the quirky young girl on the cover of her debut studio album.
Whether you’re a fan of self improvement by any means or you’re completely against plastic surgery, there is something to be said for a celebrity that doesn’t have to resort to a doctor’s office to tweak their physical appearance. From being born naturally beautiful to being happy with their unique features, there are some celebrities that have never buckled under the pressure that Hollywood can sometimes put on female starlets. Check out our list of the 15 celebs who don’t need surgery to be hot and see how some of these starlets don’t need to adhere to anyone else’s guidelines to be considered beautiful.
15 Kate Beckinsale
When Kate Beckinsale was first featured on the big screen in 1991, she was seen as a fresh-faced beauty that had an extreme amount of potential. She managed to get a number of back-to-back roles as a Hollywood actress, with some memorable films like Brokedown Palace and Pearl Harbor. Her porcelain skin and ebony hair were a perfect combination for period dramas but she proved that she wasn’t just a one-trick pony when she became the star of the Underworld film series. Through the years, she’s maintained the same look without any huge physical transformations. In fact, she’s been heralded for her ability to look ageless and maintain an amazing physique, even after giving birth. She recently starred in the latest installment in the Underworld franchise, which was the third film she had released in the year 2016.
14 Kristen Stewart
Kristen Stewart is an actress that is known for her diversity in acting choices. While she’s appeared in some big blockbuster hits, she’s also been known to delve into films in the independent scene. While most fans know her from her role as Bella Swan in the Twilight film series, she’s never been afraid to go for the roles with a meatier substance. She’s played everything from a vampire to a prostitute on the big screen and has acted alongside some of Hollywood’s most acclaimed actors. Although she has been described as a bit plain in her looks, she’s never opted to enhance her physical appearance with any outlandish surgeries the way other young celebrities have been prone to. Instead, she’s maintained the same youthful look she has had since her first motion picture release in 2001 and it seems to be working for her thus far.
13 Winona Ryder
Winona Ryder is a rarity in Hollywood and not just because she continues to get work and accolades as an actress after getting the bulk of her fame in the 1980s. Unlike other actresses that struggle with the signs of aging creeping across their face, Winona Ryder has embraced the change over the years. While she still looks very much like the fresh-faced beauty from Heathers and Beetlejuice, she now has a more distinguished look that can only come with age and maturity. Ryder has been blessed to have been born with button-like facial features, from her petite nose to her wide eyes. She’s always been praised for her beauty and over the years, it looks like not much has changed. She is currently working on the critically-acclaimed series, Stranger Things, and her appearance on various award shows have proven that she still looks beautiful after all these years.
12 Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence first got her start in acting on TV but she quickly transitioned to the big screen as a leading lady in Hollywood. She received critical acclaim for her roles in films like Winter’s Bone and Silver Linings Playbook but is probably best known for her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise. While she’s been heavily criticized for her weight, she’s never caved into the impossible standards held to Hollywood actresses. Instead, she’s actually spoken out about how ridiculous it has been when magazines have used Photoshopping tools to digitally alter her photos. Lawrence has been a champion for women to be satisfied in their own skin and she proudly hasn’t undergone the knife to try and adhere to the standards set forth on Hollywood starlets.
11 Kendall Jenner
As part of the Kardashian clan, Kendall Jenner is the one sister that has a truly unique look. Her half-sisters have never been shy about going a bit over-the-top with their look and her sister, Kylie, has seemed to follow suit. The only one that hasn’t ever gone under the knife (or even been accused of it) has been Kendall. Fans of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians series have seen little Kendall grow up before their eyes on TV and she still has the same features she had when she was young. Yet, she’s grown into a beautiful young lady and has parlayed her good looks into a stellar modeling career. She’s walked the runways of acclaimed designers all over the world and has proven that her natural beauty is far more appealing than what a surgeon could ever do.
When Rihanna first started out as a music artist, she was praised for being a hot new performer from Barbados. Yet, her stellar singing ability sometimes took a backseat to the criticisms that came regarding some of her facial features. She has been criticized for her prominent forehead and also for her wide nose. While she’s become pretty skilled with makeup tricks over the years to create the look of a more pronounced bridge, photos of her without makeup have shown just how wide her nose truly is. This became even more evident when the photo of her after the Chris Brown beating was released to the public. However, she’s never buckled under the pressure to try and diminish her nose or shorten her forehead. Instead, she embraces her natural look and flaunts it at any chance she gets.
There have been a number of videos and photos that have been circulating on the Internet over the years featuring a much younger Beyoncé Knowles. Ever since she was first introduced to audiences as a member of Destiny’s Child, people have wanted to learn more about who she was and how did she come to be such a stellar performer. Her father, Mathew Knowles, was the driving force behind her climb to fame and even helped the girls practice their routines when they were much younger. What’s interesting is that Beyoncé still looks pretty much the same as her younger self. She has never had to enhance her already beautiful natural good looks and she’s even been able to snatch back her physique over the years. While there have been some questionable moments about her Photoshopping her social media photos in order to appear slimmer, that can be forgiven since she’s never went under the knife.
8 Gigi Hadid
Gigi Hadid is the daughter of Yolanda Foster and Mohamed Hadid and was highlighted on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills when she was just an aspiring model. Viewers got to see her rise through the ranks in the modeling world and now she is one of the world’s most acclaimed supermodels. While some may criticize that she obviously doesn’t need surgery because she comes from the genes of a former model mother, the same isn’t true for her sister, Bella. Gigi has maintained the same look over the years but Bella has undergone some obvious surgical enhancements to her facial features. Perhaps Gigi received just the right mix of genetics from her parents and Bella thought she might need a bit of help. Whatever the case, both sisters have become staples in the modeling world.
7 Rachel Weisz
Rachel Weisz has been an actress on the big screen ever since her first film was released in 1994. She has starred alongside some of Hollywood’s hottest leading men through the years and has been in a number of memorable films. From The Mummy film series to Constantine, Weisz has had some pretty great moments on the big screen. Yet, she’s also been in a number of films that beg the audience to ask questions of themselves, from The Lovely Bones to The Lobster to the most recent film, Denial. Weisz is an actress that has always stayed firm to not wanting to use plastic surgery as a way to alter her looks and even gave an interview with the Telegraph saying, “People who look too perfect don’t look sexy or particularly beautiful.”
6 Kate Winslet
Kate Winslet has been in a number of roles on the big screen and television but is probably best known for her performance in Titanic. Ironically, this is also the role that she received the most criticism for since many believed that she was far too large to play the part of Rose DeWitt Bukater. While she has lost a considerable amount of weight since that iconic role, she did all of it without ever going under the knife. Instead, she chose to do it the hard way and focus on working on her craft. The hard work definitely paid off since she has won numerous awards and accolades over the years. She even won an Academy Award for Best Actress in 2009 and numerous Screen Actors Guild Awards.
5 Emma Thompson
Emma Thompson is a highly acclaimed actress that is also skilled as a writer. While she is in her 50s, she’s still a highly attractive woman and was definitely considered a hottie in her prime. Unlike other actresses that have reached a particular age, Thompson has made a stand about having to undergo surgery in order to maintain her status as a Hollywood actress. She’s spoken out publicly about refusing to partake in the impossible standards set forth on female starlets and has even helped some of her fellow actresses onset with films she was attached to. She’s chosen to age gracefully and is unapologetic about her strong feelings towards plastic surgery, which makes her even sexier as a woman of a particular age in Hollywood.
4 Halle Berry
Halle Berry is considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and has broken records and barriers throughout her career. Ever since her first feature film release in 1991, Berry has been a presence on the big screen and the red carpet. From becoming a Bond girl to winning an Academy Award, Berry has proven that she is more than just a pretty face. Yet, it’s hard to deny the fact that she is an extremely beautiful woman. While other actresses have continued to flock to their lunchtime doctors to get a little something done here and there, Berry has maintained her natural beauty year after year. She has never had to undergo any type of plastic surgery on her face but that is probably because she was lucky enough to be considered a natural beauty.
3 Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron is an Academy Award-winning actress that is thought of as one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that she was chosen for the role of the “fairest of them all” in the Snow White and the Huntsman franchise, especially since she started out as a South African model. While she donned a completely different look for her role in Monster, she still couldn’t fool her fans into thinking that all she did was go without some makeup. Although she’s never come out and stated that she is against plastic surgery, she is one of the few Hollywood starlets that haven’t partaken in huge transformative trips to the doctor’s office. There are some that say that her nose looks a bit more defined from her younger years but she’s never come out to claim that she has had a nose job. From the looks of it, it’s most likely a makeup trip to make it appear slimmer but pictures from her younger modeling days already prove that she was super hot with the nose she was born with.
2 Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore is an actress that has practically grown up in front of the cameras. As a young child, she starred in a number of memorable roles including the iconic Steven Spielberg film, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. As she transitioned out of being considered a child actress, she went through some tumultuous times regarding substance abuse. Yet, she was able to come out of those struggles stronger than ever. Nowadays, she is one of the most celebrated actresses in Hollywood and still has the same lovable facial features from her younger years. In a 2004 interview with People magazine, Barrymore talked about how she was against having plastic surgery and said, “I just know it’s a slippery slope and everybody’s starting to look a little waxy lately. I’m going to do everything I can not to go down that road.”
1 Heidi Klum
Heidi Klum started her career as a model and quickly gained notoriety through her various runway appearances and magazine shoots. Yet, it quickly became known that it wasn’t just her supermodel face and physique that was appealing about Klum. Her quirky personality and fun-loving spirit have drawn in more fans and opportunities for this German beauty over the years. She’s been featured as a television personality for a variety of shows and is a favorite for product endorsements. While it’s easy to pawn off Heidi Klum as just another woman that seems to have all the luck in the world, she has actually been very forthcoming about working very hard to maintain her physique after having children and getting up there in age. Klum has also been open about how she is against plastic surgery for herself and prefers a more natural look. In a 2012 issue of Allure magazine, Klum stated, “Everyone has a view of what’s pretty and what’s not pretty, and [plastic surgery] just doesn’t look pretty to me.”
