15 Once-Hot Celebs Who Lost Their Edge

Getting old is hard to do. Getting old in front of a camera with millions and millions of people from around the world watching your every move is even harder. Thankfully, for most people, the public doesn't really care what we look like. We get all weird looking in peace. For actors and celebrities, their image is everything, despite how progressive we like to think we've become. We can pretend we don't care, but we're judging constantly, even if it's silent.

Some actors make aging look like an art form. Helen Mirren, Jessica Lange, George Clooney, these freaks of nature make it look easy, but it's not. While the looks and the weight of some celebrities fluctuates year in and year out, sometimes these physical changes are for life. They never revert back to their previous form. Female celebrities in particular often see their bodies change with children, both during pregnancy and after, but many of them bounce back. Stars like Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Jessica Simpson have all been criticized for their less-than-perfect bodies after their pregnancies, but, today, all three look pretty darn good. Not everyone can do this though, and time is not as kind for everyone.

The stars on this list have lost their once-amazing looks. It's harsh to point out, but honesty is the best policy. It doesn't mean they're bad people. They just look worse. Sadly, for many in Hollywood, looks are the crutch stars lean on. For these stars, they now lean on actual crutches because they're out of shape and out of breath. The physical changes in the celebs on this list are so startling you would think they were preparing for the role of a lifetime but really they're just preparing for a lifetime of rolls. You see what we're doing here. We're setting up fat joke punchlines. It's not all about being fat though. Some of the stars on this list just got ugly. Here are 15 once-hot celebs who lost their edge.

1 Olsen Twins

The Olsen Twins were adorable. They were America's sweethearts. They left the spotlight and got into fashion, but we would check in every once in a while. When they got into their late teens, we could see the women they were becoming. They were going to be so beautiful and they were going to remain that way for a long time. Nope. That wasn't quite how it all played out. So, where did it all go wrong? In their late teens, they were still very attractive. By their mid 20s, their cheeks began to sink in, but they were still pretty. Then they got frighteningly thin. But they were into fashion so we thought it was normal. Then it kept getting worse. They were wasting away. They were rapidly turning into Gollum from The Lord of the Rings or, worse, they were turning into runway models. Now at 30, the twins look like petite grandmothers, every bit as frail and sallow. Perhaps this is the style they're going for or maybe they just can't help it, but we're not going to just ignore it. What kind of friends would we be if we did that?
