Maybe Not So Natural After-all

So after Singapore cut the Americans out of the opening ceremony by quickly cutting to commercial last night, I was too angry to watch anymore of their broadcast of the event. I decided to surf the internet instead. I frequently read all kinds of blogs and usually end up browsing beauty industry sites. As I was surfing, I landed on a plastic surgery blog. Not something I think I could ever do, but fascinating none-the-less. What I found was very interesting: pictures of movie stars and a Hollywood plastic surgeon who pointed out what work they'd had done.

These pictures are Jessica Simpson in 1999 and again in 2007.
The doc says that she most certainly had an eye-lift between then and now and has also had her nose shaved down a smidge. I dunno about the nose, but I definitely think her eyes look way bigger. There was also a pic of her boobs from way back when, but I'm not even gonna go there.

Here's a pic of Angelina at about 16 and another one taken in the last 5 years.
"Dr. Hollywood" says that she's definitely had a nose job. I agree. It looks like it shrunk quite a bit. I'm pretty sure that noses don't get smaller as you get older. My grandma once told me that the two parts of your face that grow the fastest are your ears and your nose. This was not a good thing to tell a 13-year-old who was VERY self-conscious about her nose at the time. However, Angelina's genes must be ones of the shrinking variety. I see that her lips have been reeled in a bit as well.
I'm no doctor, but I'd say something un-natural has been going on here.

I'm just not seeing Angelina's nose job. Looks like makeup to me. Jessica Simpson is an example of a pretty yet ordinary girl who has been "Hollywood-ized", and is now killing the self-esteem of women everywhere. And her dad is wonder she's messed up.
