However, the fact is that time also affects the way they look and so loads of makeup and styling has made them what they are today and if we show you their pictures from the past and the current ones, you will be able to see the difference.

The picture that you can see below is of Jennifer Lopez and on the left, you can see that she looks as simple as any of us do but the one on the right is a clear reflection of the styling that she must have gone through to look that glamorous.

From there she launched a successful music and movie career and stole the show at the Grammy Awards with her iconic Versace dress. She’s now the star of the crime drama series Shades of Blue.

No matter what the reason beauty is, we still think that Pamela looks gorgeous.

From The Facts of Life to E.R. to an endless stream of blockbuster hits, George Clooney has gotten better with age. He’s won two Academy Awards; first as a supporting actor in Syriana, then another as co-producer for Best Picture winner Argo. We think that Clooney is that one man who has been through an amazing transition of being a handsome young man to a graceful old guy who still has the power to make ladies fall for him. In case you don’t know, Clooney has remained politically active, supporting President Obama during his campaigns, and performing humanitarian work throughout his career.
The next celebrity on the list is Axl Rose who happens to be the brash lead vocalist for Guns N’ Roses and has been hailed as one of rock’s greatest singers. He’s also been at the center of several controversies, from the use of the N-word and gay slurs in the song “One in a Million” to his infamous late arrivals and early exits at concerts, two of which resulted in riots.

He was a defensive lineman for the University of Miami before starting his career as a professional wrestler, then made the transition to the big screen, starring in several big-budget movies from The Scorpion King to Moana.

The baby-faced DiCaprio started his acting career on television, with recurring roles in Parenthood and Growing Pains. His move to the feature films has included smaller movies such as What’s Eating Gilbert Grape? and the then-biggest movie of all time, Titanic. Leonardo DiCaprio has been well-received in his many films directed by Martin Scorsese, but it was his work on Alejandro Inarritu’s Revenant that finally earned him his long overdue Academy Award for Best Actor and we also think that it was his looks that played a very important role in helping him gain the stardom that he has.

It is amazing that even after working so hard, she has still managed to have that freshness on her face.
Although he’s grown up since his Risky Business days, Tom Cruise has looked virtually the same since he portrayed Maverick in Top Gun and launched one of the biggest careers that Hollywood has ever seen. Perhaps Interview with a Vampire was actually a documentary about the ageless wonder?

Even if he manages to look old, which we think is not possible, the amazing smile that he has will still get him a lot of attention.

Well, she had to because when you are a celebrity, you have to look beautiful at all times.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has always been in tip-top shape, from his days as The Terminator to his two terms as governor of California. While he’s not as ripped as he was during his Pumping Iron days, he manages to stay fit and has come out of acting retirement with parts in The Expendables and the fifth Terminator movie: Genisys. The thing is that these stars knew that they are going to get old because time wasn’t going ti wait for them and so, they decided to age gracefully. So, even after getting old, they don’t look as bad as some people do when they age.
Dapper Irish actor Pierce Brosnan was the fifth actor to portray James Bond, taking the helm for four films of the series: GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, The World Is Not Enough, and Die Another Day. Post-Bond, Brosnan has been involved in various movies, ranging from The Matador to Mamma Mia!, and has been an ambassador for UNICEF Ireland since 2001.

Thanks to plastic surgery, Dolly Parton has maintained a consistent look throughout her life.

In case, you don’t you Dolly had 26 songs hit No. 1 on the Billboard country charts and has a record 42 top-10 country albums.
