Smoking, drinking & plastic surgery mixed into one

Isn't it amazing how stars think they can have their cake and eat it too. Many of them smoke and drink for years and damage their skin in the process, but think that plastic surgery/botox will hide it all. Remember years ago when Melanie Griffith was the Revlon lady? Back then she had some airbrushing help for that venture, but suddenly things really started to catch up with her looks. She is a classic example of how plastic surgery cannot hide years of substance abuse. Melanie is a big smoker and drinker, and is well known for going under the knife (possibly in an attempt to keep fellow smoking hubby Antonio Banderas from roaming). As the photos reveal, plastic surgery just can't hide it anymore!  A certain Madam living in Nashville may wish to take note of Melanie's sad experience. Or is it too late?

OMIGOD> she is such a freak now. Hard to believe she was the lady from Working Girl (one of my fav movies). Mel would find it hard to get a movie role now.

Some of that is natural ageing, I mean, she's quite old but she's also made her face look completely freakish too.

It is sad...the irony is that if they left themselves alone and only did minimal plastic surgery WHEN THEY NEEDED IT (NOT in their 30's), thye'd look much better than they do.

Well at least Antonio Banderas managed to persuade her to stop. Maybe the strain of being married to Mr. Sex on legs, one of the hottest men on the planet was too much for her to take. But Nicole doesn't have that excuse because she married an orange Ooompa Lumpah who's sex appeal and other things are miniscule compared to Antonio Banderas. I can't imagine Urban with his dyed hair and orange complexion being bothered about Nicole's botox shots and lip fillers and wigs and hair extentions... I'm really suprised that Kidman's family haven't staged an intervention to stop her from doing what she is doing to herself.

Melanie used to do cocaine as well. In that black and white photo of her she was gorgeous. Best thing she can do now is try to quit those cigarettes and then exchange collagen lip disaster stories with Nicole.
Ps. Melanie was married to some bums along the way that were into drugs which wouldnt have helped her. Stephen Bauer comes to mind.

Good point about the intervention. Her family seem like nice people, I'm surprised nobody has said anything to her - esp her sister.

That said - both my aunts had plastic surgery in the last couple of years - face lift and boobs, and I think people are too embarrassed to mention.

Also - self denial runs deep - think of those guys who use hair in a can, and think nobody can tell.

Nicole's lips are so freaky though, surely her mum would say something....!

It just proves how these people are never satisfied. It also proves, that eventually, money can't buy you looks,loyalty from a spouse,or anything of real importance. Melanie had Don Johnson, for Pete's sake. But I think he was an alcoholic, too. Like the Eagles said, "Life in the fast lane". Some of these celebs better pull over, and try aging gracefully. They end up looking worse than they would have, naturally.

Some of what Deirdre said came to my mind, too. To me, Melanie Griffith has always looked older than her years. Bad plastic surgery and cigarettes certainly didn't help her aging process, but I think the lifetime of abusing alcohol, years of heavy drug use, and relationships with a string of controlling losers at a very young age, probably had a lot more to do with the way she looks now.

I don't actually see what's so bad about Nicole's lips...
Even in a movie,I don't really see what's so strange and freaky about them.It's true her Botox injections are kinda obvious,but the her lips are quite ok...No offense though...
