15 Celebrities Who Haven't Aged Well

15 Celebrities Who Haven't Aged Well
Everyone grows older, but some people do it better than others. Partying too hard, gaining weight, and genetics often contribute to what a person looks like as they age.

Some age very well (Christie Brinkley, we're talking to you) - others not so much.

Ten years ago Lindsay Lohan was a beautiful 18-year-old with a promising career ahead of her. An addiction to drugs and alcohol changed all that. She lost a large amount of weight, dyed her hair blonde, dyed it back to red, caused trouble on set, and went to rehab on several occasions.

Lohan's abusive lifestyle has definitely affected her...

Interview: Director Ti West On 'The Innkeepers', Kelly McGillis and Desire To Make Cabin Fever 2 Director's Cut

January 19th, 2012 12:40pm EST
Ti West
In just a few short years, filmmaker Ti West has carved out quite a name for himself. Having made the highly memorable films "The Wicked," "The Roost," and "Trigger Man," Ti found himself becoming even more of a genre household name with the standout flick "The House of the Devil." But having had creative differences with both Lionsgate over "Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever" and a proposed sequel to "A Haunting in Connecticut," the talented Ti recently decided to go back and make a movie his way. The result is the new film "The Innkeepers" (currently available via VOD and in select theaters ...

Blu-ray Review/Interview: 'Stake Land' Director Jim Mickle A Modern Master Of Mood

August 3rd, 2011 10:22am EDT
Stake Land photo
Mood and tone can make a movie – just ask Director Jim Mickle. His first film "Mulberry Street" was a uniquely bleak, but fast-paced look at death and mayhem in the city, while his second feature "Stake Land" (out on DVD/Blu-ray August 2 from Dark Sky Films) takes a dark and dim look at the vampire genre. Both films showcase a palpable somber atmosphere one might expect from veterans like Hitchcock and Lynch and Mickle is slowly becoming a master of mood in his own right. We’re celebrating the release of "Stake Land" with a Starpulse exclusive one-on-one interview with up and coming film...

From successful child star to famed scream queen, charismatic actress Danielle Harris has actually defied the odds by simply being a talented performer. Her work of late especially has shown some serious diversity in a genre that tends to pigeonhole its stars. Whether she’s playing a young gal on the run from evil, a vengeance seeking tough woman with an axe to grind or even a hard-hitting sleazy tabloid reporter hunting for a story, Harris chooses roles that have shown her fans there’s big talent in her small frame. Her latest project "Stake Land" (hitting DVD/Blu-ray on August 2 from D...

IFF Boston Review: 'Stake Land'

May 1st, 2011 4:04pm EDT
Stake Land
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that vampire franchises like “True Blood” and “Twilight” have sunk their teeth into audiences around the country, creating an army of obsessed fans. While these two series are not the only ones to invade popular culture, it’s clear through the abundance of novels, films, and television shows in the genre, that vampires are at the height of their fame.

In a world oversaturated by these creatures, you may be tired of the fanged fiends, but there’s still hope for interesting tales about them. Take for instance writer/director ...

Kelly McGillis Regrets Her Plastic Surgery

Kelly McGillis
Kelly McGillis once underwent a breast enlargement operation - but she had the implants removed after realizing she was living a "lie".

The Top Gun star went under the knife in a bid to boost her chest and improve her confidence, but she eventually came to regret the procedure. And the actress admits she only found happiness after learning to accept her natural looks.

She tells Britain's The Times Magazine, "I once had a boob job but I took them out because it felt like a frigging lie. People would say, 'You have nice t*ts' and I'd be like, 'F**k, they're not mine.'"

"I did try Botox ...

Harrison Ford's Seven Best Films (Not Including 'Star Wars')

May 20th, 2008 9:26am EDT
Harrison Ford
Harrison Ford is, without question, one of the biggest box office stars of all time. With the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on Thursday it couldn't be a better time to take a look back on the seven best movies of Ford's career.

We purposely left the Star Wars trilogy off the list considering those are not really "Harrison Ford movies" and quite an entity unto themselves. Plus, we do not need every movie on this list being a "Star Wars" or "Indiana Jones" movie. At times we do like to be challenged.

Once a surefire box office success, lately it has...
