Okay, okay…I know what you’re thinking…Natalie Portman would never dabble in cosmetic enhancement because she’s perfect, right? WRONG. I guess she must be as insecure as all the rest of them women who take needles to their lips, cheeks and foreheads to look younger. Or maybe as the new face of Dior cosmetics, she feels more pressure to be, well, “more beautiful.” Natalie appeared at the AFI Lifetime Achievement Tribute to Mike Nichols last week looking very plump in the face. I checked her ass, and her ass doesn’t look any bigger, which leads me to believe Natalie is getting injectable fillers in her face–you know, Restylane, Juvederm, Radiesse, etc. Seriously, she can’t really expect us to believe she only gains weight in her face. I don’t know anyone who can put on fat only in their face without any going to their ass. In any case, want some proof? Check out these candids of her in October 2009:
A closer look…Yup, I can see hollows under her eyes and nose-to-mouth lines (nasolabial folds)…
Okay, you might be saying, it’s unfair to compare candids where she has minimal make-up on to public appearances where she gets all dolled up. To appease y’all, check out this photo of her taken at a public appearance in October 2009 (incidentally, the same month and year the candids above were taken):
I don’t know about you, but I can still see the hollows under her eyes, the nasolabial folds as well as some hollowing under her cheeks. She looks fine to me, so I don’t know why she felt the need to bloat her face for the AFI event this past month:
She almost looks like a completely different person with all the injections (kind of reminds me of Kelly Kapowski from “Saved by the Bell” aka Tiffani Amber Thiessen). While she doesn’t look awful in the “after” shots, I like Natalie’s look before she pumped her face full of lord knows what. I feel like now she’s teetering on the brink of “L.A. plastic Barbie doll” territory. Next thing you know, Natalie will start hanging out with Heidi Montag. Seriously, I never thought I’d see the day where I’d mistake a photo of Natalie for a photo of Kelly Kapowski.
