While there are some celebrities who remain firmly anti-cosmetic surgery, being constantly photographed from all angles often sends other celebrities running to the plastic surgeon’s office. Some take things way, way too far and end up becoming caricatures of themselves while others simply get a little nip and tuck that enhances their feature and leads the public to question whether they got anything done or not.
There are a lot of cosmetic procedures that have become fairly common in Hollywood, from breast augmentation to rhinoplasty, but one of the most common is without doubt lip injections. After all, who doesn’t want the perfect pout?
Here are 15 celebrities who have gotten lip injections (no, that’s not just a plumping lip gloss.)
While American audiences may not be as familiar with this blonde bombshell, Brits will likely recognize the singer from the legendary girl group Girls Aloud (yes, the one that made Cheryl Cole an international sweetheart). While many celebrities vehemently deny getting any cosmetic surgery procedures done, no matter how obvious they are, Harding owned up to her choices in an interview with Fabulous magazine, saying that “around Christmas I got a little bit experimental and decided to have some filler in my lips…it was a very silly thing to do. Thankfully, they have gone back down now.” The reason behind Harding’s holiday season experimentation, by her own admission, was that she was feeling a little bit apprehensive about entering her 30s. Hey, we totally get it – aging is kind of terrifying for an average person, let alone a pop star who is frequently snapped by the paparazzi. We’re glad Harding realized she’s naturally beautiful, without any enhancements.
Ah, Renee Zellweger. She’s a bit of an unusual star – she’s most recognized for a role in which she doesn’t look much like herself. Zellweger has been in the industry for quite awhile, but became a household name after snagging the role of British every girl Bridget Jones in the films adapting Helen Fielding’s iconic novels, a role for which she gained a fair bit of weight to plump out her svelte frame. Then, Zellweger eventually took a bit of a hiatus from Hollywood. When she stepped back into the scene recently, people were slightly startled by the change in her appearance. Zellweger has always had slightly plumper than average lips, but just something about the structure of her current lips makes it seem like she may have had fillers along with whatever other cosmetic procedures she opted to have done. Hey, as long as she brings Bridget Jones back to our screens for a third film, we don’t care.
