The lives of celebrities are pretty interesting per se. a lot goes on in their lives behind closed doors. It isn’t easy to be a star. Behind the camera lens, many of our favorite celebrities face many challenges, which adversely impact their mental and physical health. They dealt with various stressors, such as the race to stay at the top, worrying about the box office fate of their movies, and most importantly, looking fit and fine. Many times, celebrities succumb to the pressure and start looking older than their actual age. To deal with this situation, they turn to artificial methods of staying young, which causes further damage to their overall appearance. Another thing that affects the appearance of famous personalities is their indulgence in self-abusive, addictive behaviors.
Whether it is to celebrate their successes or overcome the fear of failure or deal with other life challenges, they indulge in substance abuse. Alcohol and drugs badly affect their youthfulness. You will quickly notice a difference in your favorite celebs’ looks. Maybe it gets a little challenging to determine the real-life appearance of celebrities because of the countless filters they can use to make them appear younger and beautiful. But sometimes, their true personality gets captured by the camera, and that’s when we know how well or horribly our favorite celebs are aging. Let’s check these celebrities who look completely unrecognizable today.
The pop princess was one of the most admired stars of our time. Her personality and looks made her the darling of music fans all over the world. She was the heartthrob of people worldwide in the early 2000s. The sensational singer has been singing from a very young age. In fact, she signed her professional life’s first contract at the age of 15. Very quickly, she achieved fame and stardom.
Many claim that this could be the reason behind her downfall both on a personal and professional level. People say that she got famous at an early age and couldn’t handle it. It seems as if reaching stardom at a young age is more a bane than a blessing. At least that’s what Britney’s current looks prove.
Britney Spears: Now
Although the starlet is in her 30s only, she has seen a lot in her personal life and lost the charm and attraction in her voice, which used to be her strength back in the 1990s. Several failed relationships and becoming a mother at an early age affected her emotionally, mentally, and physically, which is why Spears hasn’t aged gracefully.
The eye candy of everyone Noughties gal and guy, the Baby One More Time and Oops! I Did It Again singer suffered a breakdown in 2007 and shaved her head completely. She even beat a paparazzi’s car with an umbrella. The 33-year-old singer desperately tried to make a lasting comeback professionally, but her personal issues had taken a lot of toll on her appearance. Her battle with own father and sister over her conservatorship has stressed Britney beyond measures and it sadly shows on her face.
Alec Baldwin: Then
Alec Baldwin, the oldest of the Baldwin brothers had killer looks, talent and the making of a movie star. He married his first wife, the stunning Kim Basinger, who in her own right was an A-lister movie star, perhaps the most beautiful woman in Hollywood in the 1980s and 1990s. They married in 1993 until 2003 when Kim filed for divorce. They had one daughter together named Ireland. When Ireland was 11 years old in 2007, Alec, in a fit of rage called his daughter a pig and later claimed that the stress of divorce and battling custody with Kim was just too much. Allegedly, Alec was also beating his then wife Kim during their marriage. To say he had anger management issue is an understatement.
“You have insulted me for the last time … You don’t have the brains or the decency as a human being. I don’t give a damn that you’re 12 years old or 11 years old or that you’re a child, or that your mother is a thoughtless pain in the ass who doesn’t care about what you do, as far as I’m concerned … You’ve made me feel like shit … I’m gonna straighten your ass out when I see you. I’m going to really make sure you get it … I’ll let you know how I really feel about what a thoughtless little pig you are. You are a rude, little pig, okay?”Alec Baldwin on the phone with Ireland
Alec Baldwin: Now
Alec is now married since 2012 to his 2nd wife, a New York City former yoga instructor by the name of Hilaria who is 26 years his junior. Hilaria was born in Boston, Massachusetts but likes to pretend that she’s a foreigner, often faking a bad Spanish accent to make people believe that she’s an immigrant. Alec and Hilaria together have seven kids and possibly more to come. Alec still has anger issues as it wasn’t too long ago that he attacked another paparazzi on the streets of New York City… an event that seems to be happening on an annual basis.
Sadly Alec hasn’t had a major box office movie in at least a decade. His claim to fame these days is impersonating the 45th United States President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live (SNL)… sad and pity for a talented actor to stoop this low in his career. Typically new comers start their career at SNL and later become superstars… Alec, once an A-lister on the other hand is ending his career at SNL.
No one can forget the lovely, freckled twins in Disney’s movie The Parent Trap. Lindsay Lohan’s sheer exuberance and innocence made her character(s) and the movie memorable. Lindsay is also one of those celebrities who ventured into the world of show business at an early age. She was only ten when she appeared in the soap opera As The World Turns and also tried her luck in modeling.
Needless to say, Lohan was quite lucky as she quickly became one of the audiences’ favorite child stars. The freckled-face actress later appeared in hit romcoms as a teenager, including Mean Girls and Freaky Friday. However, despite showing so much promise, the actress couldn’t handle success and started appearing on headlines for her run-ins with the law instead of her movies.
