Did Sandra Bullock do a recent “plastic surgery makeover”?


Last week, Sandra Bullock was photographed out and about looking only slightly tweaked. We don’t have the photos, but you can see them here, at The Mail. Her lips looked slightly fuller, her skin looked fantastic, but she basically looked like the same woman, which means that the work was good. OK! Magazine devoted an entire article to Sandy’s “plastic surgery makeover” though – even though they’re claiming that she only went in recently for some fillers and injections, not surgery.

As Sandra Bullock made her way through the check-in line at JFK airport, the actress sported lips that looked noticeably poutier and fresh-looking skin. “It looks like she got a little bit of help with her lips and her smile lines,” says a friend. “Her skin looks smoother and her pores look smaller.”

Sandra, 47, has been frequenting the same plastic surgeon for the past 15 years, says a source.

“She appears to have had a forehead lift a few years ago and now undergoes a regular regimen of injectables,” the source explains. “It looks like she’s had Botox injections on the upper and lower outer corner of her eyes, which soften crow’s feet and pulls up the outer edges of the brow and lifts the lid. It also seems like she’s a regular fan of Radiesse, a filler injected into the folds around her mouth.”

Although her rep denies Sandra has done anything to her lips or face, the friend explains that Sandra’s stalled relationship with Ryan Reynolds may have had something to do with her recent overhaul.

Sandra and Ryan, 35, spent time together this summer when he admiringly called Sandra “the ultimate catch, no matter what — age, particularly with her, is completely irrelevant.” However, after their relationship cooled (Sandra’s rep consistently denies they had a romance), he began dating Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively, 24, and suddenly, age seemed to matter a lot.

“Sandra’d never admit it, but losing Ryan to Blake has been a big blow to her ego and she is definitely panicking,” says the friend. “Things didn’t really work out the way she planned. She probably never imagined she’d wind up competing with the young kid from Gossip Girl!”

And she’s not only looking younger, she’s been acting it. In 2009, Sandra made a resolution to enjoy her life more.

“Right now, I’m kind of getting into my childhood,” she said. “I didn’t have a teenage or early-20s experience that was free and without worry. I missed the ‘screw everything, have-a-good-time’ phase. Now I’m trying to have fun.”

Her divorce from Jesse James the following year made her even more determined to stay young and embrace life. Her fresher face, says the friend, is just one more way of taking revenge on everything that threatens to curtail her happiness — especially aging. “She has kind of thrown the whole ‘growing old gracefully’ thing out the window,” says the friend. Although, the friend says Sandra is taking a “conservative approach to her makeover. Sandra always wants to look like herself, just a little bit better.”

I actually think OK! Mag and their “experts” are right on the money – about a decade ago, I think Sandra had some real plastic surgery in the form of an overzealous eye job or something in that area. Remember Two Weeks Notice and how funky her face looked? That’s when it happened, and I think that since then, Sandra has only been doing little stuff, like fillers here and there.

As for Sandra and Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively – meh. Whatever was happening between Sandra and Ryan, it either wasn’t romantic or it wasn’t romantic for very long. At this point, I just believe that they were really close friends. And I don’t think Sandra’s fillers have anything to do with Blake specifically – they’re probably more to do with aging in the industry generally.

    Sandra Bullocks lips look the exact SAME. If you watch her films, especially WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING (1995), you would see that Sandra had VERY FULL LIPS, especially the bottom lip.

  2. guilty pleasures says:

    She’s still my girl-crush!!

  3. samira677 says:

    She looks the same. People just want to do a lame story because of Ryan Reynolds.

  4. N.D. says:

    I really like this sparkly dress!
    And no, I don’t think she ever did anything to do with surgery to her face. Cosmetic procedures like fillers, chemical peelings etc – yes, but not surgery.

  5. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I don’t think she and Reynolds were ever in a romantic relationship. I think he’s a close friend and part of her support system, but I think she’s too in love with her baby Louis to want to be in a relationship right now. And after the whole Jesse James fiasco who can blame her really?

    I think her lips look the same but yeah, maybe some fillers. Good for her. At least she still looks pretty natural and not like an alien. She’s starting to get to that age where a few pounds might help tho, like Sarah Jessica Parker o Teri Hatcher.

  6. Waldemar says:

    Who cares. Even if she did some tweaking, she looks FANTASTIC.

  7. ShanKat says:

    Exactly the same. Thank the lawd.

  8. tapioca says:

    She looks great, but no 47-year old woman looks that good without some kind of work! She must have Sharon Stone and Demi Moore’s surgeon – small procedures over a long period of time.

  9. anemoneblue says:

    she looks awesome. nuff said

  10. NotaBitterBetty says:

    OK are still peddling this Ryan/Sandra story? Can’t believe anyone actually bought into that. Sandra looks the same, think she’s losing a bit too much weight these days though. Her neck and cheeks look sunken in the second picture above.

  11. Zay says:

    Chriss-On-a-Cracker she looks Goooo-hoooddd

    Also Reynolds is not her league and I think he knows it…after Jesse i hope she is off losers

  12. Tierra says:

    She did NOT have anything done with her lips, it was just her expressions.
    You can tell she does fillers and botox but its very nicely done. More celebs should do it the way she’s doing instead of going overboard with the “more is better” theory when it isnt when it comes to these types of things.

  13. I.want.shoes says:

    She looks good and even if it was achieve with cosmetic procedures, she still looks naturally beautiful. Not cat-faced.

  14. hillbilly in the corner says:

    Wish I could afford to have that neck line lift too…any woman over 30 knows what I’m talking about…..she’s 47 and her neck is still tighter then a 18 yr old shes had a lift but hey it looks good……

  15. Erinn says:

    I love this woman. She is gorgeous. I don’t see any difference in the lip photos other than lip gloss and the angle.

    And hell, if she’s been getting work done, she’s doing it well. She’s doing more maintenance than changing, and she looks beautiful.

  16. imabrat says:

    Don’t see any difference.

  17. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    She looks to be channeling Katie Holmes.

  18. k says:

    IF she had anything done, at least it’s tasteful and she does not look like a freak.

    Don’t believe a word about a romantic liaison between Ryan and her.

  19. ??? says:

    Meh. Never been a fan. Find her annoying. What I find hilarious is if anyone had this much work done.. the whole thread would be trashing her but because it’s Sandra.. “oh she looks fantastic..” OK. Whatever. I hate her Adam’s apple. I think she’s a very successful sex change.

    • .... says:

      Okay, you’re entitled to your opinion, though it’s a bit harsh. She’s not the most talented or versatile actress, but at least SB isn’t a self-absorbed, snatch-faced, media-manipulating famewhore like almost every other Hollywood actress in her age-range/category. She can be a little annoying at times, but cut her some slack — she seems a lot more genuine and down-to-earth than the majority of her contemporaries.

  20. mln76 says:

    I love Sandra but she’s had work done. She’s had good work and it’s subtle but there is no way a 47 year old looks like that without help. She’s smart enough to not go overboard which is why she doesn’t look like Courtney Cox.

  21. Embee says:

    Didn’t she go out to dinner with a group that included Blake and Ryan? Seems unlikely if they had hooked up. As for her face, she looks refreshed (injectables, botox) but not tweaked. I think her work is tasteful but I do wish Hollywood allowed for the accurate portrayal of aging.

  22. Jackson says:

    IDK, she looks good. I just wish she would ditch the blue eyeshadow and go with browns. Lips also need to be a little darker, but still neutral. And I agree, she had something done awhile ago.

  23. The Original Mia says:

    Not seeing any difference in her face and if she did do something, it was minor.

    As far as being threatened by the likes of Blake Lively, hahahahaha. Please.

  24. HeiN says:

    Blaah just a load of bullocks! *giggle* She’s gorgeus.

  25. Turd Fergussen says:

    She could do herself a favor by choosing a shade of lipstick that’s not, you know, FROSTED PINK.

  26. Dudette says:

    @??? – I don’t particularly like Sandra either. People worship the ground she walks on but I’ve never been able to figure out why. I also find it very, very difficult to believe she had no idea her ex-husband had nazi inclinations. A woman her age and with her experience cannot be that naive. Makes me wonder just how ‘perfect’ she really is.

    @the original mia – the likes of Blake Lively? While I think Sandra looks good, I’m not sure why it’s impossible to believe that a 47 year old woman, fresh off a humiliating break up would have a few hang ups when next to a twenty four year old with a much younger, pert body. It’s perfectly natural and doesn’t really say anything bad about either woman.

  27. Jess says:

    I think she looks good – and at 38 I can appreciate the desire to make a few little tweaks, here and there. Question, what can you do to make your pores look smaller? I understand the botox and fillers, but they wouldn’t impact pores. Is is the peels?

  28. Yep says:

    She’s as frozen as Nicole Kidman

  29. Shelly says:

    Her lips look slightly bigger, but she honestly doesn’t look like she’s had any other “work” done. I also don’t remember her looking funky during Two Weeks Notice. She’s always looked the same. I don’t know why people always have to assume that a woman of her age must have had some tweaking if they still look good. I know a lot of women her age in real life that look just as good as her and I know they’ve had no tweaking. Some people just take care of themselves and/or are blessed with good genetics. Sandra is certainly NO Nicole Kidman (who would have also aged well if she hadn’t gotten all Frankenstein on her face). I do hope that whatever Sandra did do her lips stops, though, because she did do something there, and while it is slight it is still noticeable.

  30. MellaYella says:

    I don’t see the plastic. She looks good

  31. Cerulean says:

    I see the difference. At least it’s subtle. She looks good to me. At 47 in Hollywood, it makes sense to tweak a little, fill a little. I can’t fault actors for that when their faces are their living. It’s when they do loads of it and change their faces that it becomes repellant. Especially when they aren’t doing it for antiaging purposes.

  32. Turtle Dove says:

    Love Sandra. I do, but she’s had work done. She’s a nice person and seems quite kind, so I give her a pass on the maintenance stuff. At least she doesn’t look plastic like another 40-something celeb.


  33. Summer says:

    She’s had a boatload of plastic surgery. Most noticeably a MAJOR nose job. Here is sandra before all of the work: http://famousplastic.com/2011/03/11/sandra-bullocks-nose-jobs/

  34. lrm says:

    Have you seen Marisa Tomei lately? This is someone who looks amazing and does not appear to have been tweaked at all.
    I think she is the only one out there these days—-sandra is looking tweaked and hollywood try-hard polished but fail….too bad.

    • Gia says:

      I saw Marisa Tomei the other night in The Lincoln Lawyer with Andrew McConnehey..sp? and you are right, she looks fabulous. Doesn’t look like she’s done a thing to her face. She looks older with crows feet but still looks like herself – cute, sexy and at ease with her appearance.

  35. Jackson says:

    @Jess – I think it’s the peels and also laser can help. Not sure if you are asking for yourself, or just in general….but I started using Clinique pore refining instant perfector and it is fabulous. It’s like a primer but I wear it alone. Gives me a pore-less, matte look and also kind of ‘erases’ fine lines. I love that stuff.

  36. lucy2 says:

    I think she’s had little things done here and there, but nothing major. Whatever it is, she looks great.

  37. mln76 says:

    I think one major reason no one notices that she uses filler is that after what happened people expect her to be unhappy and expressionless. No one thinks it’s the Botox just that she’s still quietly devastated over Jessie. I know I’m guilty of it.

  38. Callumna says:

    I didn’t find her attractive when she was younger and now she looks fantastic.

    Dear God may we all look better at 47 than 27. They should give Oscars for that too.

  39. MyCatLoves TV says:

    If I could afford “maintenance” damn straight I’d be doing it, too! Not the shiny weird stuff that makes you look like….uhm….like nothing found in nature but subtle improvements thru your 30′s & 40′s so that you don’t have to have your ears pulled behind your head at 50. Sandra looks super gorgeous and however she did it worked for the lady. As for me, I am going to learn how to walk on my hands. Upside down, I bet I’m beautiful! Damn gravity.

  40. Camille says:

    I agree with your last paragraph Kaiser. Why are you always in my head?? lol

    Sandra looks great. I’ve always thought her features were kind of unusual- like she has a kind of um not so pretty nose for example, but she has pretty eyes and for some reason her looks have grown on me over the years.

  41. Mary jones says:

    No everyone looks like a hag after 40. She probably has good genes just bc you look old doesnt mean everyone else is going too. Some people “gasp” actually take care of themselves and dont smoke and bake in the sun.

  42. tracking says:

    I’ve noticed for a while now that Sandra’s face from the eyes up seemed immobile in her films and promotional appearances. I do think what she’s doing is subtle and looks fine, but that she’s been doing it for a while now (agree nothing to do with Lively).

  43. kelbear says:

    Well, she looks amazing even if she has had some little botox or whatever.

  44. Genevieve says:

    I wanna know who her doctor is. I would love to have some work done & have it look so natural.

  45. Sabrina says:

    i think she and Paula Abdul look so much alike, especially in the pic where she is casual

  46. Bobby the K says:

    Her make up looks sprayed on in layers. Well sprayed on though.

  47. Gia says:

    My sister has good bone structure and all she does is botox and filler and it hasn’t aged much. It’s not overdone so nobody can tell except for me/my other sister and guess what…she lies to us about it, LOL!

    Sandra Bullock is looking older but is doing so gracefully. Still I don’t like that harsh eye make up which makes her eyes look even more close set and she’s looking too thin and boney. Her chest area, looks, um …hangy.

  48. Gia says:

    Someone mentioned her nose upthread. I’m pretty sure she had an early nose job – before becoming famous. Her nose is such that it looks like the tip was rotated to give it a slight upturn. It does not look natural but it suits her.
