Megan Fox’s “no Botox” face courtesy of Botox and Photoshop, obviously

Late last week, Megan Fox posted some photos of herself on Facebook trying to pull faces. The title of the photo set was “Things you can’t do with your face when you have Botox.” Well maybe Megan should have titled that “Things you can’t do with your face until the Botox settles,” because experts have chimed in to say that the photos show evidence of past Botox use and also that they seem to be Photoshopped, particularly in this image where she has a bizarre swirly pattern of wrinkles on her forehead that would be impossible to achieve in nature. Kudos to all of you who commented that the human forehead does not normally do this:


Here’s the article, which is what many of you were saying already but it’s nice to read the same sentiment from plastic surgeons and dermatologists:

“Looks like Megan is just as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment,” said plastic surgeon and blogger Dr. Nicholas Vendemia of New York. “Those lines on her forehead are totally fake. … Muscles in the forehead and brow simply don’t create curved wrinkles like that. The wrinkles Megan is showing us don’t coincide with brow anatomy, nor do they match the facial expression she is making.”

Dermatologist Dr. Vince Afsahi of Tustin and Newport Beach said, “The photo looks altered. The muscles in the forehead do not usually create an arc-like pattern seen in the photo. … Anatomically [it] does not make sense.”

Dermatologic surgeon Dr. David Sire of Fullerton said, “I have never seen the frontalis [forehead] muscle do this unless the muscle was surgically cut. It appears as if she is frowning and elevating her brow at the same time. Quite a feat!”

Plastic surgeon Dr. Val Lambros of Newport Beach said he’s undecided about whether the photos are fake, but the pattern of wrinkles in the top photo “looks odd to me” while a second one “looks bogus. Frown lines just don’t look like that and if you look at the position of the medial brows [the part closest to the nose], they do not seem to move.”

The doctors’ doubts are in response to four photos that Fox, 25, posted on her Facebook page last week, showing herself scowling and raising her eyebrows. She labeled the photos “Things You Can’t Do with Your Face When You Have Botox.”

Some doctors interpreted the photos as showing a Botox patient in whom the effects of the wrinkle-smoothing drug are starting to fade.

“This photo [top] is totally consistent with the wrinkle pattern you will see in someone whose Botox has begun wearing off,” said plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow of Newport Beach. “When you have Botox to the entire face, different parts wear off at different rates and can give you a strangish-looking pattern of wrinkles until it all wears off. I bet this photo was taken the day before her Botox appointment.

“She’s a beautiful girl and should ease up on the Botox and obvious filler she has in her lips,” Dubrow said. “She’s starting to look a bit alien and should consider parking her spaceship for a while.”

Plastic surgeon and blogger Dr. John Di Saia of San Clemente and Orange said, “Maybe Ms. Fox has just shown us that she has not done her usual whole forehead Botox but now has scaled back to just the glabella [the area between the eyebrows]. I believe this explains the foreign appearance best.”

In the top photo, “it looks like the Botox is wearing off but part of the effect is still in,” Di Saia said.
A second photo of Fox frowning looks like a patient from several years ago whom Di Saia injected only between the eyebrows, he said.

I love that comment: “She’s starting to look a bit alien and should consider parking her spaceship for a while.”

Why do celebrities do this? Why do they deny and try to act like their beauty was naturally achieved when they look like an entirely different person? Do they think we’re stupid and that their work is so subtle that it’s not noticeable? Megan doesn’t even look like someone who is genetically related to her 1.0 version, which again is this (from 2004). Remember she’s only 25 now.
Megan Fox

Would it kill Megan to own up to Botox, fillers and her obvious nose job? She’s probably had even more done. If she doesn’t want people to question her on the whole plastic surgery and injectables issue she shouldn’t even bring it up. If she would have kept quiet about it we wouldn’t be talking about her other than that whole issue with her getting canned from Transformers and Shia being a kiss and tell douche, though. She wants to change focus and this is the best she can do.





Megan is shown on the set of The Dictator in NY on 7/11/11. We saw some of these photos yesterday but I thought I’d include them again. Credit:

    She looks so pretty in that 2004/05 picture. I love the freckles.

    P.S.: the way these women (Hollywood actresses) fuck up with their faces reminds me of that Daria episode where her younger sister (the typical hot and popular highschool girl in the series) goes to a plastic surgeon’s office and she’s told that she needs a lot of procedures in order to be perfect. I mean, these women are naturally insecure — when you add the competition with which they have to deal and personal stylists/assistants telling them they should do this and that — they end up undertaking unnecessary plastic surgery that will eventually ruin their already pretty faces.

  2. Laura says:

    I do think that Megan posted those photos to show that she’s finally stopped using botox recently, not to claim that she’s never done it. The new photos of her that have surfaced on the shoot for the Dictator are pretty bad, in one she looks reminiscent of Cat Lady Jocelyn Wildenstein. Ick!

  3. mia girl says:

    You know, she had some general good will going her way recently after all the name dropping the Transformer guys did during their recent press tour and of course after LaDouche blabbed about having sex with her.

    But she is obviously so a)stupid and b)narcissistic that she had to pull this stunt. Now we are all back to thinking she is a moron.

  4. She is all over the place regarding her, “I don’t do plastic surgury statements and pictures of her frozen brow” when that shiz isn’t circulating, we are back to Shia, blah, blah, blah. I think she is struggleing to stay in the light and be relevant, she doesn’t seem to do much else these days.

  5. Delta Juliet says:

    Sooo pretty before. Not so much now.

    Isn’t it ironic that these actors are presumably paid to emote and portray feeling and yet they are having procedures done that make it impossible to show expression on thier faces?

  6. teehee says:

    Well shes turning out to be quite the liar liar pants on fire. First about her hookup with Shia (BAG had no idea or is in on the game) and now about alternig her face. I get a lie to cover up surgery work, but repeated or constant lying and decietfulness is something very different.

  7. marge says:

    i think some of the botox she’s used went into her brain and paralized it…

    (sorry to be mean, but this level of studipity makes me angry)

  8. lindseythecrackthief says:

    It drives me nuts when stars have soo obviously had surgery like Megan, feel the need to go over board with denying it.
    she was STUNNING b4 the surgery her original nose and features are much more striking then now.
    I agree she is looking alien like and also like every botox face in hollywood.
    In hollywood everybody trys so HARD to de different to stick out yet they all go buy the same face!!!
    Now she will never get that natural striking beauty back and shes only 25 for pete sakes!!

  9. croxley says:

    Megan Fox seems to be incredibly insecure and slightly disturbed. I don’t think the entertainment industry is for her! The pressure to look a certain way has affected her adversely, that’s the only way that a beautiful girl would elect to alter her face in such an unflattering way and then lie about it!

  10. jocular says:

    Hmmm maybe she’s happy she can finally move her forehead even a little now the botox has worn off and she’s in such wonderment she thought she’d share her new found feats with the world or who knows…strange. Her intentions can be interpreted in so many ways, mainly negative. She would have been better not to do it at all than stir up all the speculation, how could this ever help her get a role? Isn’t a successful career what its all about? Very silly unless she wanted to be in the public eye again regardless of the possible consequences for her career. This move can surely only harm her as she doesn’t give the impression of an actress that cares about her craft, shame. I can’t imagine the day when Carey Mulligan or the like would do this i.e post photos to be examined on Facebook and she’s getting coveted roles.

  11. KC says:

    Delta: Sadly, I don’t think it’s ironic that actresses get so much **** done to change their looks because it reflects what females are everywhere in the media: meat. How many movies have you seen that had substantial roles for women? You know, without the real life blow-up doll porno crap that Megan Fox had to do for Transformers?

  12. Coco says:

    She looks so pretty in that “old” picture… Is like you are looking at a different person. Don’t get why is she doing this to herself.

  13. KC says:

    Delta: Sadly, I don’t think it’s ironic that actresses get so much **** done to themselves to change their looks because it reflects exactly what females are in the media: meat. How many movies have substantial roles for women (you know, without the real life blow-up doll porno crap that Megan Fox had to do for Transformers)? I am not condoning the “40,000 cosmetic procedures? Who meee?” from alien-faced wax figures; I’m saying it’s probably vanity + pressures from the industry in general.

  14. Marianne says:

    Maybe she hasn’t gotten botox. But if shes trying to prove thats she’s “natural” then she is off her rocker.

  15. mln76 says:

    Agree with miagirl I would really love to like her because she’s gotten the shitty end of the stick by those two tools Bay and Shia….but she’s assuming the public is stupid. I am back to wishing she’d just go away!
    EDIT: also so disturbing that unlike say Nicole Kidman or Courtney Cox etc Fox is really young there is no need for a woman in her early 20s to f-with her face this much.

  16. Liz says:

    she was cute and pretty before the ‘transformation’ – but she got a few tweaks to ooomph her sex factor, and in the beginning that may have worked. but clearly she took the work too far and now looks like a plastic alien. people just don’t know when to stop.

  17. wow what a transformation! I want to go to her plastic surgeon to make me look hot, go to hollywood and recite lines and make tons of money

  18. gamblea says:

    cheek implants, yuck, madamism, check – madonnaism, check

  19. Blue says:

    The difference between 2004 and now is crazy. I wouldn’t believe that was the same person. It’s like these celebrities forget that there are pre- surgey pics. Don’t deny you’ve had work done when there is evidence showing otherwise.

  20. Ellie says:

    She looks like a brunette Amanda Lepore! Of course she’s gotten botox. She looks so plastic. Why lie about it!

  21. Kelly says:

    The main takeaway here is the photo that shows the COMPLETELY unnatural upside-down U-shaped wrinkles. I’ve read other quotes by plastic surgeons who say that is simply not possible. I mean, what gives? Try – just try – to get your face to do that. I tried really hard, and I just got the usual horizontal forehead lines and the frownie lines.

  22. Anonymous says:

    Celebrities lie about the work done, becuase if the public would even open one-eye (let alone both eyes)….the public would see half these TWITS are just another product on the self at the corner store……. generic and cheap!

  23. MarenGermany says:

    No matter what anyone says, I would kill (not literally) to look like her. Before or after her surgeries. I agree that their are a lot of pics where her face looks uncomfortably altered but
    she is one hot babe!

    (and somewhat stupid if she thinks we are buying into her no-botox story, just saying)

  24. Turtle Dove says:

    Nice looking girl still, but I do hope that she cuts that stuff out. I’m with Eve, MarenGermany, and mln76 in their assessments.

    croxley (9) – Agreed. She does seem very insecure to me. Hollywood makes actresses (and women in general) so fearful of aging when it really is amazing.

  25. What the HELL did she do to her face!? She looked great before,why??Oh,why!!She’s only 25 and well on her way to looking like Priscella Presley.I’m so sick of Hollywood cramming this down our throats.She doesn’t look pretty to me,but altered and strange.

  26. lorna says:

    it’s one thing to lie – they all do. That’s not the problem to me. The problem is that she’s done SO MANY things to her face and she’s still so young. Plastic surgery ages you generally, and once you do one thing, a host of other things tend to follow. And before you know it, you have an effed up face that looks 40 at 28. She must be in a bad place to think what she is doing is in any way sane, to be effing with her face and think it’s getting improved. It’s creepy, and it’s creepy people around her enable it.

  27. lilred says:

    @ Marge:that would imply that she has a brain in the first place(I’m not sorry for being mean.)

  28. ZenB!tch says:

    Not even Shia and Bay could get me on Team Megan. I don’t care about her surgery – her face. I care about her mouth always being in porn mode. It’s seriously gross and it’s a turn off. If she can’t close her mouth get smaller lip implants. If she can close it, please do because it’s repulsive or maybe she should just move in with Sheen and get it over with.


  29. Ally says:

    Geez, this just screams ‘i’m really insecure’….very sad…

  30. MissVJJ says:

    Like my mom says.. “Everyone is pretty when they are young”. I don’t understand why these celebutards do this. She was so much prettier before, now she is just frightening.

  31. Deb says:

    The photo at the top of this post looks downright scary. She looks like some sort of extraterrestrial or a comic super villain. Not a good look at all.

    @ Eve. I remember that Daria episode. The funniest part is when the surgeon does a computer mock up of what Quinn will look like after all of the procedures, and she ends up looking exactly like the heavily plasticized doctor!

  32. nanster says:

    @Deb – you’re right on the money. She looks like an alien impersonating a woman. On a side note, I asked my 14-year-old nephew who his idea of “hot” was, and he said Megan Fox. Scary thought, but are these botoxed, plastic surgeried females going to be what is considered beautiful in the future?

  33. Fountain of youth says:

    The people commenting on here really don’t have a clue. Megan has had a rhinoplasty and POSSIBLY injections, that’s it. Who cares? You are the typical insecure dramaqueens trying to find something wrong with someone who (obviously) is 1000 times hotter!
    Rhinoplasty won’t *alter* the face, the nose only gets refined. Her lips and cheeks are exactly the same as before. Everyone changes from age 17-18 till 25 naturally. GET OVER IT.

  34. mew says:

    She looks so stretched and tight!! That’s definitely NOT natural.

  35. Eve says:

    @ Deb:

    Yes, I remember that. They add a fake chin dimple, blond hair, chin implant and she ends up looking ridiculous.

  36. Annie says:

    @ Fountain of Youth – ia that when she just had a rhinoplasty and some minor lip injections she was incredibly hot and beautiful. However, whatever she’s been doing (botox and fillers imo) she’s now gone WAY overboard. She’s still very pretty but in a plastic-waxy well-preserved mannequin sort of way and if she keeps it up at this rate she’ll be truly fug and tranny-esque by her 30′s, an age when realistically she should still be in her prime. Everyone changes between 17 and 25 but absolutely nobody I knew ‘naturally’ turned into a frozen Katface between these ages.

  37. the original bellaluna says:

    Can someone please explain to me why a girl in her early 20′s (or even early 30′s) NEEDS botox or face implants?

    I mean other than a medical reason, like a tragic accident or disease.

  38. jover says:

    Fountain of youth everyone has a clue and despite their criticism there is an air of regret in how ms. fox has ruined her face and career. WHen I see ms. fox i think of spanish philosopher Jose Ortega Gasset’s famous remark that an unmployed existence is a worse negation of life than death itself. When this is your major daily activity, how sad, my house cats lead more interesting lives than this vacant twit.

  39. dyke says:

    her forehead in motion, may not be fake

    is that proof?

  40. cristina K says:

    it is the biggest idiot BOTOX I’ve ever seen ………. RIDICULOUS!

  41. Patrice says:

    What KILLS me is that she was so cmpletely STUNNING before she jacked up her face! Remember when she was on Hope&Faith? Now look at her! Yikes. I mean, the girl is Pricscila Presly 2.0 to a T! Why unbelieveably, naturally gorgeous women f*ck themselves up this way, I’ll never understand.

  42. keith133 says:

    for gods sake these so called doctors are morons searching online for 3 minutes you could find people with those forehead krinkles

  43. Jane says:

    I don’t think that is Megan’s official Facebook page; it was started and still run by a fan.

  44. Camille says:

    Once upon a time Megan was a cute girl. Now she looks like a plastic figurine or one of those ‘real sex dolls’ (google it) *shudder*.

    This chick is beyond over rated. Her 15 minutes can’t be over faster enough IMO.

  45. Stephanie says:

    She looks to be at least in her thirties from these pics.

  46. keith133 says:

    of course she is still extremely pretty but she should get her tan back that will probably make her look much better

  47. anti says:

    it looks like she put her finger between her eyes, pushed up the skin and later had someone photoshop out her finger.

  48. JQ says:

    @Eve, OMG I loooove Daria! I used to watch that all the time!

    Megan was so pretty in her before pictures. And I am dying about the parking her spaceship comment. It was just what I needed to get my mind off my annoying MIL who is in the next room visiting with my baby. If anyone needs plastic surgery and a makeover, it’s my troll-in-law!

    It would be wonderful if men and women didn’t give in to the internal and/or external pressures to alter their faces. There are many men and women that were attractive before their facial alterations, that now look far less than that. Those that had their faces altered traded their God-made, God-given attractiveness for man-made/human-made facial substitutes. Often, I see the negative, unattractive results they ended up with and find myself praying that God would un-do what the humans messed up and restore what He gave them in the first place. I encourage the young ones and the older ones to stop messing with their faces via surgeries and drugs and instead beautify their faces via healthy self-esteem, exercise, restful sleep, excellent nutrition, and an excellent, blessed, peaceful lifestyle. It works for non-celebrities and this can work for celebrities, too. The choice is theirs.

    Thank-you for the opportunity to comment.

    You are so right ! And thank you for taking time to bring our attention to this evil and hideous troll in fact I think stoning to death should be the penalty for ALL women for the crime of thinking they are pretty or showing an interest in their looks or attempting to improve them, oh and of course for the vanity of showing themselves in public in such a way that makes them seem as if they might like themselves and how they look.

    Yes, this horrible fake fake woman who does things like wear make up and have sexy pictures taken truly makes Charles Manson seem like thumper the rabbit. Burn her I say. Thank god there are people like you taking time to nail her to the cross when there are so many stupid superficial dicks out there only concerned with things like human rights and pedophilia and all the old people who will die in their homes this winter as they are too poor to turn on the heating.
    thank you, god bless you all.
