9 Female Celebrities Who Can’t Accept Getting Older

We feel badly for women in Hollywood. When they’re young, they’re so in-demand; however, as they get older, the jobs became few and far between and the pressure to look young becomes overwhelming. It seems as though very few female celebrities are able to totally ignore the pressure. Most succumb to it and end up turning to plastic surgery to help slow the aging process. While it’s easy to understand the desire to remain looking young, some women in Hollywood have taken things way too far. The 9 women below are so afraid of aging that they’ll do anything to prevent it from happening. Check out our list of 9 Female Celebrities Who Can’t Accept Getting Older:

9. Heather Locklear

Surprisingly, Heather Locklear doesn’t look like she has aged that much since she was on “Melrose Place.” Her cheeks are still full and there is barely a wrinkle in sight. While she looks good, she also looks kind of plastic, as though she’s been getting work done because she doesn’t want to age (she is dating a plastic surgeon, after all). Combine her looks with the fact that she was charged with DUI in 2008 (the charges were later dropped in exchange for probation) and it’s pretty obvious that the former TV star can’t seem to grow up.

8. Denise Richards

Denise Richards obviously isn’t opposed to plastic surgery – she’s had three breast augmentations. Although she has never admitted to having anything done to her face, it looks pretty tweaked, as though she has been doing something to get rid of any and all wrinkles. Some have gone so far as to say that her skin looks frozen in some areas. It looks like Richards is just another actress who is willing to do anything to delay the inevitable.

7. Meg Ryan

Meg Ryan doesn’t need to say that she is afraid of aging – it is pretty obvious that she is. She looks as though she has had a ridiculous amount of work done to her face over the years. We get that she was probably trying to retain some of her natural beauty by getting all that plastic surgery; however, it has had the opposite effect. These days, she looks like a caricature of her former self – and there is no going back.

6. Madonna

Madonna has said in the past that, no matter how old she is, she is going to do exactly as she pleases, and she’s done exactly that. She dates men in their 20s despite the fact that she is in her 50s and she seems to be trying to manipulate her face and body to look a lot younger with plastic surgery and excessive exercise. We get the impression that she doesn’t like aging and she’ll do anything to slow the process. Unfortunately, dating younger men and tweaking her face makes her seem more desperate than anything else.

5. Melanie Griffith

Melanie Griffith was so fresh faced back in the ‘80s and ‘90s; however, now she looks like a poster child for plastic surgery gone wrong. It doesn’t look as though she’s been able to accept that she’s getting older. Her face has changed considerably over the years and plastic surgeons speculate that she’s been using Botox, fillers, collagen and anything else that might help her turn back the clock. We really wish she’d just stop with all of the cosmetic surgery – it isn’t helping her look younger.

4. Renee Zellweger

Renee Zellweger used to be one of the most in-demand actresses; however, as she’s gotten older, she hasn’t been in as many films. Over the last year, it has become quite obvious that she has been getting plastic surgery. The shape of her eyes has completely changed and she has little to no wrinkles. Rumor has it that the Oscar-winning actress can’t accept that she is getting older and isn’t getting the roles she used to, hence the plastic surgery.

3. Kris Jenner

Kris Jenner seems oblivious to how old she is. She sees herself as more of sister than a mother to her daughters. She parties with them, dresses like them and even flirts with their husbands and boyfriends. She also gets exorbitant amounts of plastic surgery to help her continue to feel and look young and encourages her children to do the same. We really think she needs to accept how old she is and set a better example for her two youngest daughters.

2. Courteney Cox

Courteney Cox has been quite open about how she dreads getting older and how she uses Botox and actively searches out anti-aging treatments. She turned 50 this year and, while she looks really good for her age, we know that it isn’t natural and that she is trying anything and everything to prolong the inevitable. She can’t seem to allow herself to just age gracefully, which is really sad.

1. Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman would probably never admit this, but we don’t think she wants to age. She has been tweaking her face for years and, up until last year, she wanted everyone to believe that her wrinkle-free face was because she uses sunscreen religiously and doesn’t smoke. She still has difficulty moving her face and expressing emotions, so she obviously hasn’t given up on the Botox. We don’t think she will ever accept that she is aging and she will do anything to thwart the process.
