Being in the public spotlight can be hard, I suppose, especially keeping up with appearances. You’re always under the watchful eye of the paparazzi, and they don’t care if you brought your A-game or if you look like you just went dumpster diving. Any picture will do. It isn’t so far fetched that celebs will turn to plastic surgery to ensure their name at the top of the list. We rounded up 18 Hollywood stars who have turned to crazy expensive cosmetic surgery to ensure they always look their damn best.
Kelly Rowland – $4,000
Ahh, Destiny’s Child star, Kelly Rowland, I will always have a soft spot for you. Even though she’s over 35, she looks amazing…of course that’s thanks to a plastic surgeon. Rowland had breast implants and a small nose job. This is small change compared to what other stars have done.
Julie Chen – $6,000
Long before Julie Chen became the face of CBS News and Big Brother, she was just a small time reporter in Dayton, Ohio. But when Chen was only 25 years old, she had cosmetic surgery to make her eyes wider and appear more open. Chen had the surgery as she didn’t want it to stop her from having a successful career since she looked very “Asian.” Whatever the reason, she is a super successful reporter!
Megan Fox – $8,000
Fox is drop dead gorgeous and her acting career is amazing, both The Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise are just some of my favorites. Fox spent over $8,000 on breast implants, raised eyebrows, cheek augmentation, lip fillers and Botox. While we don’t think she needs it whatsoever, we totally think she looks amazing.
Victoria Beckham – $8,000
Posh Spice is drop dead gorgeous, always was and always will be in my opinion. She is a global fashion icon, talented musician, super wealthy, and is married to the ludicrously handsome, David Beckham. She’s worth over $300 million but the $8,000 she’s dished out on surgery is pocket change for her. Beckham had breast reduction surgery and some minor touch ups on her face. Pretty tame.
Meg Ryan – $11,000
This ’80s star graced our presence with films such as Top Gun and When Harry Met Sally, she is a lady of class. Unfortunately, she hasn’t aged well. Therefore, Ryan is constantly consulting plastic surgeons to get her looks ‘just right’. She’s had over $12,000 worth of plastic surgery, this includes a face and neck lift, cheek fillers, and just too much Botox. I almost feel sorry for her.
Patricia Heaton – $12,000
Heaton is almost unrecognizable since her days of being the hilarious actress on Everybody Loves Raymond. She won a pair of Emmy’s for her role on this show, quite the achievement. She’s spent almost $12,000 on a tummy tuck, breast reduction surgery, and of course, a facelift. Ahh, Hollywood, you turn the best of ’em.
Denise Richards – $13,000
Denise Richards is just so beautiful, it makes my heart hurt, she resembles an angel. Richards is well known for her former marriage to Charlie Sheen but even that bump hasn’t slowed her down, she looks stunning. Richards had nose plastic surgery and breast implants, resulting in over $13,000 spent on these common surgeries in Hollywood. Still, she looks good!
Kim Kardashian – $16,500
Kim’s very public life on the show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and her highly publicized marriage to Kanye West, we really aren’t so surprised that Kardashian has had cosmetic surgery. She’s spent over $16,500 on laser hair removal, nose surgery, Botox on her eyebrows, lip fillers, and skin tightening, and most importantly, her bum. That’s right, Kim has butt implants, as if you haven’t noticed her round and juicy bum?
Vivica Fox – $26,000
The former soap opera star and actress starring in films such as, Soul Food, Independence Day and Kill Bill – was once considered an amazing natural beauty. Then to stay on top of game and get more roles, she spent over $26,000 on surgery. Breast implants, jaw reconstruction, Botox and nose surgery are all on the list. So much for natural beauty, eh.
Clay Aiken – $35,000
Most known for his rivalry with Ruben Studdard on his show, American Idol, way back in its first season. Aiken has turned his attention to politics now but not before having cosmetic plastic surgery. He spent a reported $35,000 on toning his jaw line! Crazy.
Roseanne Barr – $45,000
Is that you, Roseanne? Yup, sure is. Barr has spent over $45,000 on liposuction surgery – she looks slim and healthy but I am sure there were healthier alternatives to losing the weight.
Caitlyn Jenner – $60,000
No surprise here. Formally Gold Olympic Medalist, Bruce Jenner, Caitlyn underwent an entire transform, head to toe. Spending over $60,000 to reinvent herself into who she knew in her heart, she was. Surprisingly, she looks amazing. Stunning really.
Kris Jenner – $70,000
Oh hey, another Jenner! Of course, Kris is going to make the list, just look at her. She actually keeps track of all her surgeries, which she films to watch later. That’s a bit odd but to each their own.
Joan Rivers – $100,000
May she rest in peace. However, Rivers is one most prolific abusers of cosmetic surgery that Hollywood has seen. She may have been a hilarious comedian and fashion icon but she’s well remembered for the 700 times (nope, not a typo, you read that right), she had plastic surgery. That’s over $100,000!
Amanda Lepore – A Lot
Lepore is an icon for transsexuals and we so admire that, what we don’t admire is just how poorly her surgeries have come out. Breast augmentations, butt implants, and she had her ribs broken intentionally to reduce the size of her waist – the list goes on, racking up a bill of, well we don’t know. All we can do is assume that it’s crazy expensive. Recently, Lepore has come out and said that she’s really happy with how she looks, so that counts for something I guess.
Sharon Osbourne – $185,000
Sharon Osbourne felt pressured by the public spotlight to undergo cosmetic surgery but she has realized, it’s not healthy and has sworn she’s never doing it again. Osbourne did spend over $180,000 on plastic surgery before she called it quits. And she does look good!
Demi Moore – $500,000
It’s almost sad to have to include Demi Moore on this list, but we have to. Moore is not ashamed of her plastic surgery, whatsoever, she even said that they help keep her active and keep her acting career alive. I’m not sure if we can justify the $500,000 she’s spent but she’s happy with the result, even if she looks so different today.
Jocelyn Wildenstein – $2 Million
I just don’t even know what to say, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking for a second. Jocelyn Wildenstein spent over $2 MILLION to look like a cat so that her husband would be happy because that’s what he wanted. Unfortunately, it didn’t help, her husband left her. I feel sorry for her and I can only hope she’s happy.
