Life isn’t easy on any of us. We may remember celebrities from the way they first appeared on screen but life takes its toll on the rich and famous just as much as it does on each of us. These celebrities have endured the aging process just as all humans must, and the result is that many are not as attractive as they were in their heyday. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but it’s worth remembering that many of these people still have successful careers despite the ravages of old age — looking older doesn’t kill your talent.
From Val Kilmer to Johnny Depp, here are some aging stars who are almost unrecognizable!
Val Kilmer, Hot Stuff
Val Kilmer started out on the stage and then moved into acting. His first screen role was in an ABC Afterschool Special starring opposite a young Michelle Pfeiffer back in 1983.
He would go on to star opposite Tom Cruise in Top Gun by the end of the decade and by the mid-1990s, Val Kilmer was considered to be seriously hot property. He famously beat out 1980s pop icon Michael Hutchence of INXS to play Jim Morrison of The Doors in Oliver Stone’s Blockbuster movie about the band. His role in Heat with De Niro and Pacino is often considered to be his finest.
