Seeing that they looked like regular people, just like you and me, before they got famous and started the tweaking, is a total self-esteem boost in my book. Our intention isn’t to create more insecurities or to encourage YOU to change stuff by showing what they did; it’s to spread the realization that those perfect features are a genetic improbability. So let’s all be a little more forgiving of ourselves and what we were born with.
First up is this pic circa 1997 when Scarlett was just 12 years old. I know it’s weird to talk about anything beauty-related on a 12-year-old, but it’s the only good pic I could find that shows her original nose. Also, notice the lips—they were always super-plump. Damn, girl.
SCARLETT IN 2001
This one’s from 2001 (age 17) and you’ll need to help me out because I’m not certain if anything has changed yet. Her nose might be a little wider in the first shot, but it could be either the angle or the fact that she was only 12 and still growing into her nose. At the very least, I think you’ll agree that her 2001 nose is for sure different to her 2013 one.
This is also from 2001 (maybe her first red carpet?). Same nose but add more eye makeup and she’s looking fairly close to the Scarlett we know today. No matter what her nose shape, you can already tell she’s going to be a knockout.
SCARLETT IN 2003
OMG, did you know she had a mullet? This is from 2003 and she actually does pull it off, weird as this haircut may be. Now, back to the nose. I feel like it’s a bit thinner around the nostrils and the tip has been refined a bit; plus the bridge is not as wide. Looks great.
SCARLETT IN 2006
I feel like you can really sense that something has changed when you look at this one, from the 2006 Golden Globes. I don’t know if she had a series of rhinoplasty surgeries—which does often happen—or if this is the same as the 2003 nose, but it’s looking more defined and delicate. It’s a subtle change, but you can see how it transforms her from girl next door to mega-sexy woman. Shortly after this, in 2007, she actually threatened legal action against allegations that she had plastic surgery. The lady doth protest too much…
Anyway you can judge by yourself if she did or didn’t make any facial plastic surgeries.
