See who else in Hollywood has had a nose job...

Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

It's that time of year for our annual "who is turning 40" this year extravaganza. Truth is, lots of people do, but we'll just keep it to the more famous variety of peeps in the world.

Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

For those of you who weren't around that year, the mantra of 74' and the world was energy crisis -gasoline was a little hard to get and lines at gas stations were blocks long. Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

Slideshow: Celebrity Plastic Surgery -- Breast Implants Edition
Breast implants are nothing new in Hollywood. Some stars willingly reveal that they've had them, either to boast, get attention, or just plain get the truth out there and avoid all the stories. Some stars get them and neither confirm or deny it despite the obvious differences. And other stars don't have them, yet constantly become the objects of speculation because of an outfit they wore that either made their bust look bigger or smaller.

To the untrained eye, when a star wears a low cut gown that's tight on the sides basic physics applies and things "get pushed together", giving the appea...
