Kim Basinger, once hailed as the “Angel of Hollywood,” faced criticism for excessive plastic surgery in her pursuit of eternal youth. In the 90s, she was one of the first to try botox, leading to a notably smooth yet stiff appearance.
However, in the 2000s, her reliance on plastic surgery became more apparent, resulting in drastic changes to her face. An unsuccessful eyelid surgery in 2013 left her with round and sunken eyes, prompting further corrective procedures.
Recent photos from a party for her daughter revealed further alterations, including thread lifts, cheek fillers, and botox, giving her an unnatural appearance.
Basinger has since avoided public appearances, sparking speculation about her desire to conceal the results of her surgeries. Observers note a slightly swollen face shape, suggesting she may have halted further procedures.
Despite this, examples like Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep show that natural beauty can endure without extensive surgery, even in older age.
