Now before you get back to puffing out your chest, arching your back and accidentally scraping your nose on the ceiling, please note that we’re not saying that these actors got worse looking. We could say that, but we won’t. We could say that some of them
Who the hell knows what’s going on with Val Kilmer these days? First, Michael Douglas came out and spoke about Kilmer, saying, “Val was a wonderful guy who is dealing with exactly what I had, and things don’t look too good for him.” The “what I had” was meant to be throat cancer, which Kilmer claims is not true. In response, he wrote, “Thank you all for your love and support. There’s a rumor I’m unwell again and in hospital which is totally untrue. I was in to verify I have no tumor or infection of any kind which was verified by the very caring experts at UCLA. Friends have assisted who know my spiritual convictions and have been most sensitive and kind for the extra effort in making sure there’s minimum gossip and silly talk.” So, we don’t know if Kilmer is sick or not, but we do know that he looks much different, much thinner and a little more puffy facey. Sick or not, we wish him the best of health.
Renee Zellweger took a lot of abuse when she first revealed her new look in 2014. While most speculate that plastic surgery is the cause of the change, Zellweger has used the conversation as an opportunity to discuss why there is always a focus on the female image in Hollywood. She also suggested that the physical change in her looks is because of her emotional change. “I’m glad folks think I look different! I’m living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I’m thrilled that perhaps it shows,” Zellweger said. “My friends say that I look peaceful. I am healthy. For a long time I wasn’t doing such a good job with that. I took on a schedule that is not realistically sustainable and didn’t allow for taking care of myself. Rather than stopping to recalibrate, I kept running until I was depleted and made bad decisions about how to conceal the exhaustion. I was aware of the chaos and finally chose different things.” This is all pretty basic deflection, but maybe she’s right. Maybe we shouldn’t be talking about how plastic surgery has made her look completely different from what she used to look like.
