Celebrity Plastic Surgery : Year in Review
By Anna Marques
2014. It already sounds so last year, doesn’t it? Every year is a big year for celebrities to be nipping and tucking, and 2014 was no exception. But Renee Zellweger tops the list for 2014 as the most controversial “makeover” with the barrage of press, blogs and news commentaries that flooded the media after the chubby-cheeked squinchy-eyed actress we knew and loved from Jerry McGuire, Bridget Jones and beyond, was replaced by a generic blue-eyed blonde straight out of Housewives of Orange County. The story just would not die, and Bruce Jenner possibly transforming himself into a woman (can’t a guy just get a manicure and hair extensions anymore, fer Chris’sake?) Rumer Willis’ plumped up lips, or the buzz that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are “twinsees no more,” were mere blips on the gossip and entertainment radars by comparison. Renee is still pretty, no question, but in a cookie cutter kind of way, and reports are out that she may even be replaced by Reese Witherspoon in upcoming Bridget Jones sequels, though the Wild star may not be so keen on plumping up for the role, after all that hiking up the Pacific Crest Trail. 2014 also saw the sudden and tragic demise of the great Joan Rivers, a champion of plastic surgery if ever there was one. After happily fessing up to having had more than 700 plastic surgery procedures, she claimed to have regretted only one: a liposuction that didn’t come out as smooth as she’d hoped. In 2012, she told Anderson Cooper that after every procedure, she would get a tenth one free, like coffee. There will never be another like you, Joan, and that’s an understatement!
