19 Stars Who Failed to Age Gracefully

We’ve got to admit: everyone gets old. For a majority of us, it’s never a fun thing. Imagine: gray hairs, fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging body parts. But for others who are disciplined enough to be in the gym and leaning towards a healthy diet, aging becomes less of a toll. For celebrities, the path to aging gracefully should be easy given their money and connections within the industry. But that’s never the case for some of them, whose unhealthy lifestyle (or something else) contributed to their present “fugly” looks.

Here’s a list of a handful celebrities who broke into the entertainment world with a good looking face, but have aged horribly in the later years.

Jessica, a pop singer and brief actress, had her share of ups and downs. Since getting pregnant, she got bigger and appeared a lot older. Maybe shedding off the fats could make a ton of difference in bringing back her youthful glow.

Despite numerous grooming applications, Instagram filters, and even dabbing into Photoshop, it’s no surprise that a lot of celebrities want to look young as much as possible. Whether it involves dealing with botched surgeries, stressful careers, poor lifestyle choices, or public breakups, some stars have the capacity to quickly address them compared to others. Aging may not always be pretty, but that’s actually ok for those living an ordinary life.

But when you’re a Hollywood A-lister, there’s no excuse for having an unhealthy appearance from the get go. The stars mentioned just shows how Hollywood isn’t always perfect. Sometimes, all it takes is for one to snap out of living an unhealthy lifestyle and focus on clean living.
