Oh the mistakes of our youth!

H on

Give me a break everyone..she is a natural obviously pays to have a good regime in the early years.

tracey on

I agree w/H; the girl is a natural beauty. In her younger picture she was just sporting the sytle of the times.

Isn’t it obvious she’s had a nose job? Look closely.

Becky on

Anyone else think she had a nose job? but regardless she doesn’t look bad in the first pic, just younger with a whole lot less make-up and hair dye.

Camp on

Good plastic surgery. Nose job, yes but they did a good job by only shaving a little off to make it thinner. The tip of her nose looks natural. However, she needs to lay off the collagen on her upper lip.

AnnieJ on

Now that you mention it (nose adjustment), it does appear that way. She is a naturally attractive person, but that doesn’t mean you don’t fall prey to trends of the time. I think either nose looks fine, she just looks better now (but we all improve with age – thankfully).

Alex the Q.T on

I think she is just a pretty person I mean she looks just as pretty now as back then!!!

if i had even half of her money i BET you all,me and i guess all the gilrs here typing would look WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better then she does. take that…

alia on

I knew everyone was going to say that she had a nose job when I saw these pics….It’s the angles from which these pictures were taken and the lighting that makes her nose look different…I doubt that she had surgery….no two pictures are alike and if you look at pictures of yourself you would see that your face doesn’t always look exactly the same……and, Besides, she grew up in between these pics…. I think she’s a natural beauty….I’m gonna have to agree w/ H and Tracey…

How jealous and self conscious of yourselves must you be to think she looks better so she HAD to have had plastic surgery? She looks the same to me, obviously she got better with time.
How different did you all look in your younger years compared to now? Probably worse now than before!
So bitter. But women will be women. So sad.

bb on

Natural beauty? How can someone who has obviously had her nose done and Lord knows what else, be called a natural beauty? The term does not apply here.

katie on

no, I thought she broke her nose a few years back.

katie on

no, I thought she broke it a few years ago.

Most of you are talking about a supposed “nose job.” Well I was an avid viewer of “7th Heaven” and what gets me are the plastic teeth or whatever they are called. (veneers?) WHY do all of the young actresses feel they need to get the denture look at such a young age? She was recently in a time period movie (The Illusionist) and her teeth stood out more than Nancy Kerrigan’s did when she was screaming “why me?!?!” Perhaps some day I may have to go that route but not before my time of turning a senior. Ms. Biel is a beauty as is Hillary Duff (i could list more) but the fake teeth are a turn-off & take away from the natural appeal.

Marina on

Lay off, haters! Look at your own pics from 10 years ago and weep! She looks fantastic!

Mary on

I think she looked best in Italy in ’06…short hair works on her.

marie sabado on

from druggy to glammy!!

Rebecca on

It’s hard to tell based on the older photo, but looks as if she has added a hefty set of veneers too. Either way, she’s definitely a natural beauty.

some people are so jealous…

she’s beautiful. she’s young. she’s in great shape. if she did have plastic surgery, so what? most of you so upset about it probably would do the same if you had the money to/worked in an industry that demanded so much perfection. it’s a shame to see women pick on each other. no wonder men judge us.

James on

How is someone who noticed she had plastic sugery or THINKS she has being “jealous” or “haters”? Not a slam, just an observation and opinion. When done right it can only enhances & does not change her obvious born good looks. That is all I got from other posts. It isn’t the angle from which it is shot, she just had more baby fat in her face that we all have as teenagers. He lean diet and also created a more natural defined look, but her nose is not the same. Big deal.

coco on

you guys are so mean, she’s a natural beauty and i highly doubt any of you are prettier than her…now and than.

Rebecca on

Just an observation… just because someone may point out that a celebrity probably had plastic surgery doesn’t necessarily mean they are a “hater” or are jealous. I’ve had a couple cosmetic procedures and for me, it’s just reassuring to notice that I’m not the only one with insecurities. I’m not the least bit ugly and I don’t care to bash anyone. Celebrities are human just like the rest of us and they too either succumb to the pressure or just want to improve what they’ve already got.

OMG!She has a nose job

Christine on

I think she looks really good in the second pick, average like most of our high school looking photos in the first, so I think there is a thumbs up here. I do agree about the nose job, but oh well, it is a nice looking nose job. However, I hope Cameron is over the fight she supposedly got into with this chick, because Cameron is a great girl as well. I think Jessica is great, but again no better than many women in many cities looking great on a given night out.

Eva on

Yes Ladies, Total Nose Job! It’s so obvious. Wow! I wonder what else? Upper lip? She’s pretty though.

Jennifer on

I think Jessica is BEAUTIFUL. She was great for being a teen actress in 7th Heaven. She is naturalu beautiful in her younger photo. But with time she has become an amazing actress and stunning. She glows! I can’t wait to see I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry! I am sure she is great in it. Who cares if she might have had a little work, it all paid off. But she has TONS of natural beauty. TWO THUMBS UP JESSICA!

Jess on


meg on

There is no plastic surgery there- she is one of the most natural celebs in Hollywood- The pics are YEARS apart- of course they look different! come on people, lets put your pics out there and see what people say. She is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.

k on

She is stunning, in the second picture though…

stacy on

Her first picture is absolutely adorable. Let me look like her for just one day!

Catrina on

she so had a nose job, beautiful yes, natural, i think NOT

Anna on

Its not a nosejob, its make up. Anyone can do that. Its called nose contouring makeup. Any half decent make up artist can do that to anyone’s nose. If you ever get a chance, check out Oprah’s nose with and without make up. Incredible difference. And her lip is the same, just the way she smiles (she sticks out her teeth a bit) makes it look like its bigger. Another little photo trick. If she was going to get a nose job, Im sure she’d smooth out the time. It looks like a geometry project. But really, what were we all thinking back then? I remember my hair looking like that too. But it was so much easier and faster to achieve that look!!!

J on

Looks like she had a nose job

danielle on

DEF got a nose job!

Judy on

1st pix…I thought this one looks cute because it’s very natural and girl next door.

2nd pix…Looks older and polished. We all can look great with make-up.

Abby on

This reminds me much of Avril Lavignes transformation. Where she changed from a skater girl to a beautiful “punk” princess… but Jessica Beil is another star who has proved over time people change

pharmgirl59 on

I don’t remember her ever looking like the 1st picture, what did they do find the worst picture of her they could!

sammy on

wat can u say when your young …..young ans stupid thank god she changed now she looks like a millon dollars

J on

In her before picture she has a herpes blister on her lower lip that she tried to cover up with that weird lipstick shade. I hope she has that under control now eeeew!

Elda on

blows my mind what some people are saying about Jessica, this woman can do no wrong she is just beautiful!!

N Perez on

Nose job, nicely done. Upper lip also nicely done and what about the cheek bones? Let’s hope her talent as an actress matches up her good looks. So far, not so good…

Lee on


L.C on

she is soooOOO pretty noww but ugly b 4….no effence….

L on

i would actually say that she has had a ‘chin job’ when she was young you can see that she actually has a crooked sloping chin…and now she doesnt….and i think she is ordinary not necessarily a natural beauty…as opposed to kate beckinsale or reese

Curlybob on

She was a beautiful teenager who developed into one of the most beautiful women in the world and is a perfect physical specimen.Why would she have a nose job, you can’t improve on perfection.

Emilee ♥ on

Jessica is a very pretty woman. Obviously in the first picture, she was just going through the trends of that time. When I look back at photos of myself that were taken a few years back and look at photos of myself now, I can definitely see the difference. My hair changes, my make-up changes, and of course I’ve got more years to me. Jessica looks more polished and prettier then ever in the 2nd pic.

Missty on

well yeah, 2nd pic is better but … HAIR! she really needs to fix them ,,, lol

Morgan on

I personally think she is beautiful. She was younger in the first pic so I am not sure why everyone is freaking out really. So what, she had her nose done or anything else for that matter. It seems that people these days, like to bring up the fact that someone might or might not of had something done and I don’t see why really. She was young before and a little rough around the edges, she is mature and beautiful now.

Michelle on

Jessica’s hot looks are a bit overated… Does she ACT?? SING?? or just strut around??

amy on

She looks the same except for her nose job and her skin is clearer in the second picture.

Jessica on

Definitely a nose job!!

Rach♥ on

amazing!! that’s like all i can say to describe that incredib;e transformation!!

Abby on

I think she looks like average girl next door. Theeeeeeeeeennnnnnnnn. Makeup done by the best. I also think maybe a little puffup done to lips. as in Botox. I think she should slow down on getting in great shape. In some outfits she looks a little too much mannish. She is cute; but not definetly the most beautiful woman in the world. .Iwill say hair stylist did a great job. More softer than severe pulled she was wearing at red carpet events.

Ursy on

I’m not trying to say anything bad about her, because she is gorgeous. But she has most definitely had alot of work done to her face!!! And they wonder why people have issues about their appearances and want plastic surgery!

claudia on

she looks like a totally different person, I don’t think she is pretty at all,and nowI know she had that much work done,natural beauty does not exist anymore specially in Hollywood.

marktplaats on

Thanks , I’ve recently been looking for info approximately this topic for a while and yours is the best I’ve came upon till now. But, what about the conclusion? Are you sure about the supply?|What i don’t understood is in truth how you’re now not actually much more well-appreciated than you might be right now. You’re very intelligent.
