For Art or Fitness: Celebrities Who Have Made Dramatic Physical Transformations

Celebrities are well known for keeping in shape and making changes to their physiques, sometimes as a result of wanting to look better, and sometimes for a specific purpose like a movie role. Here are some of the most dramatic transformations of 2015.


Mischa Barton

Mischa Barton, star of the hit TV show The O.C., was photographed at the end of 2014 with a much larger figure than she had previously been known for. But just a few months later, she was snapped again looking completely different after shedding a lot of weight. The first photographs had snapped her dressed in gym wear, so it looks like her visits to the gym paid off.
Jake Gyllenhaal

Not all physical transformations involve losing weight. For his role in the movie Southpaw, Jake Gyllenhaal put on an incredible 30 pounds to play boxer Billy Hope. At one point he was working out for six hours a day to pile on the muscle—and it shows.
Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton looked almost unrecognizable when she appeared in the movie Trainwreck this year. This involved putting on some weight, and the actress also spent a number of hours applying makeup each day, and she even used a wig.

Sam Smith

Sam Smith lost a lot of weight in 2015 after working with a nutritionist who has put him onto a much healthier diet. Check out his Instagram account to see the results.
Paul Rudd

Paul Rudd is another actor who made a big commitment for a movie role. Before starring in Ant-Man, Rudd stopped eating carbs and did not drink any alcohol for a year. He also started up an intense workout to get into shape for the role, and the results were clear to see.


Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner is the youngest member of the Kardashian family, and she has been photographed looking very different lately. According to MoviePilot, she has admitted to using lip fillers, and this has played a role in changing her appearance over the last year.
Want to Make a Dramatic Physical Change Yourself?

If you want to make a big change to how you look, dieting and exercise are usually the first options. However, you may want to make changes to your appearance that are not possible through dieting alone. In this case, you may want to consider plastic surgery.

Whether it’s a rhinoplasty to change the shape of your nose, or a tummy tuck to get rid of some excess skin, speak to a professional at a surgery like and find out what your options are.
Make 2015 a Year of Change

As some of these celebrities have demonstrated, it does not always have to take a long time to make a large change to how you look. This can be the case with losing weight, and it is especially true with plastic surgery. If you want to change your appearance, consider your options and then make 2015 the year when you reach your goals.

A fashion for Eyebrows

I must admit, the one part of my beauty regime that I sometimes neglect is my eyebrows. I do pluck and shape, and am a little obsessed with Blink products that slightly darken my quite light brows, but, in general, I find that this is an area I often ignore when applying make-up to the rest of my face. This is a shame really, as eyebrows can completely change the look of your face, with perfect brows something that modern day stars like Cara Delevingne have become famous for.



Cosmetic Surgery experts Transform have just celebrated their 40th birthday, and, as part of the celebrations, they have produced a series of fun infographics looking at different aspects of beauty. The one I like the best concerns eyebrows and is full of interesting, and sometimes surprising facts about eyebrows, including what the shape of your eyebrows says about you.

One of the most shocking facts is that the interest in eyebrow transplants is rising considerably due to the ‘Cara’ effect, with ladies looking for thicker, bushier brows to emulate the stunning Miss Delevingne. If you have plucked excessively in the past your eyebrows may not grow as thick as you would like and so an eyebrow transplant may be something you would consider. With 45% more enquiries about this procedure in 2014, you wouldn’t be the only one!

What is your beauty regime when it comes to your brows? Do you pluck them yourself, or have them threaded professionally? What products do you swear by, or do you leave them to grow naturally? Do you have a brow inspiration? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
