Then And Now: Celebrities Who Have Failed To Retain Their Youth

Published on 03/17/2022

It’s been a rough ride for the majority of us. We may remember these celebrities from when they first appeared on television, but they also face hardships in their personal lives… We can’t avoid aging, no matter how hard we try. Consequently, we may no longer appear as svelte as we once were. In the end, it’s all in the eye of the beholder, as the saying goes. Despite the fact that their appearances have changed, many of these celebrities are still having successful career in show business. It’s proof that your talent doesn’t wane with time. This list includes some of the best-known aging stars, from Val Kilmer to Johnny Depp!

Val Kilmer Then

Val Kilmer began his acting career on stage before moving on to television and film. A young Michelle Pfeiffer co-starred with him in an ABC Afterschool Special in 1983. Val Kilmer became a household name in the mid-1990s after starring alongside Tom Cruise in Top Gun at the end of the decade. As Jim Morrison in Oliver Stone’s acclaimed film about The Doors, he triumphed over INXS’ Michael Hutchence. With De Niro and Pacino, his performance in Heat is widely considered to be his finest.

No matter how many people say otherwise, we still think Val’s waistline has shrunk over the years. Sorry to say, he’s gone from both the big and small screens. After years of putting on weight, he shocked his followers by declaring on Twitter that he had lost 165 pounds. Valerie’s acting career is over. In reality, he’s been putting on a one-man show called Citizen Twain, which he wrote and starred in. He was awarded a Grammy in 2012 for his spoken word performances. For those who haven’t gotten back into shape, there are rumors of a Top Gun sequel to keep them motivated.

Sally Struthers Then

When Sally Struthers portrayed Gloria Stivic, the daughter of Edith and Archie Bunker in Norman Lear’s pioneering sitcom All in the Family, she won over American hearts. She was not expecting to get the part since it has initially been offered to Candice Azarra, who portrayed Gloria in the pilot episode. Candice was quickly scrapped to make room for Sally. Gloria Struthers was noted for her blonde pigtails and stubborn demeanor while coping with her overbearing father. Sally’s life was smooth sailing from then on, when she rose to become one of America’s most famous television personalities.

It’s unrealistic to anticipate the years to be generous to everyone, but Sally hasn’t let her age deter her from functioning. She’s been a longtime supporter of the Christian Children’s Fund (now ChildFund), which helps hungry and impoverished children in developing countries. She also starred as Dolly in the 50th-anniversary production of Hello, Dolly! in 2014. In episodes about a hungry boy called “Starvin’ Marvin,” Struthers was satirized twice on South Park. The humor centers on Struthers’ overconsumption compared to her efforts to support those who are hungry, implying that she is hoarding food. She was reportedly upset by the characterization, something we can understand. Ignore the naysayers and keep doing your best self, Sally.

Mickey Rourke Then

In 1982, Mickey Rourke made his comedy debut in the film Diner. Though it didn’t entirely break new ground, his acting ability and ability to discuss the controversial subject matter in his positions propelled him to stardom in 1986’s 912Weeks and 1987’s Angel Core. Though mild by today’s standards, these films cemented his status as a sex icon alongside co-stars Kim Basinger and Lisa Bonet. On the other hand, Rourke realized that he’d had enough of acting and turned to box in 1991. When he was younger, he had practiced as a fighter. His boxing career was short-lived, lasting just three years.

When Rourke returned to acting after a career in boxing in the 1990s, he landed a few small parts. His fantastic skill encouraged him to work tirelessly, frequently playing misfits and misguided tough guys, despite his face being badly bruised from his time on the fight scene. Rourke didn’t have another significant supporting appearance until 2005’s Sin City. His success in The Wrestler won him a Golden Globe, a BAFTA, and an Oscar nomination in 2009. He’s had a lot of cosmetic surgeries over the years and, as a result, is a handsome older guy.

Kathleen Turner Then

It was challenging to go to the cinema in the 1980s without seeing Kathleen Turner. She starred in films such as Body Heat, Romancing the Stone, Prizzi’s Honor, The War of the Roses, and Peggy Sue Got Married, all of which were hugely popular. Her smoldering good looks and seductive voice rendered her an ideal option for the part of femme fatale in Hollywood. During the decade, she earned the Golden Globe for Best Actress and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Kathleen Turner Now

Kathleen Turner has little influence over her transition from a sex siren to a regular citizen. She was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in the 1990s, which caused her excruciating discomfort, and tried to confine her to a wheelchair. Some critics were critical of the drug recommended for her recovery because it induced general weight gain and bloating. Turner, like so many other female actors, was pushed out of the spotlight, and her acting offers shifted from “star” to “mother” or even “grandmother.” Her arthritis has thankfully gone into remission in recent years, and she has starred in a variety of guest parts over the years, including Friends, Nip/Tuck, and Californication. We’re relieved that she’s looking and doing healthier.

Rupert Everett Then

In 1984, Rupert Everett received a BAFTA for his debut performance as Julian Mitchell in Another Nation. In a 1930s English school, he portrayed an openly gay student. He was known for portraying bad boys, and his smoldering good looks helped him land roles in films in the 1980s and 1990s. With his song, Generation of Loneliness, Everett attempted (unsuccessfully) to transform his celebrity into a music career as a pop star. But it was too late; the audience still saw him as a fantastic performer, and fans ignored his artistic projects. In 1997, for My Best Friend’s Wedding, he received his second BAFTA and his first Golden Globe.

There’s nothing wrong with Rupert’s current appearance because he no longer resembles the fresh-faced kid who once graced the silver screen. He is, though, still behaving as frequently as he once did. He appeared in Tim Burton’s Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children this year and previously in the Shrek films and the Chronicles of Narnia. He’s also taken up fiction, having written two memoirs and a novel. He’s been vocal about various political and social topics, including decriminalizing prostitution and same-sex marriage. Clearly, there has always been more to this new Renaissance guy than what appears on the table.

Lara Flynn Boyle Then

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Twin Peaks was both a horror favorite and a big television success. David Lynch’s strange outlook on small-town living in the aftermath of the mysterious assassination of Laura Palmer caught the public’s imagination all around the country. Suppose there was a face to Twin Peaks, Lara Flynn Boyle, who played Donna Howard, Laura’s near friend who became fascinated with solving the crime, in both seasons of the show’s brief run. However, she did not reprise her part in the film sequel, and she has already declined a role in a new TV series set to premiere in 2017.

Like every other human who has aged through the years, Lara Flynn Boyle is no longer the sex siren of her childhood. Instead, she’s a well-dressed, distinguished-looking middle-aged lady who has put in some effort. It’s easy to see how a young beauty would feel pressured to keep their looks with surgical procedures as they get older. Lara made the best choice for herself, and she is in excellent shape for her generation.

Igor and Grichka Bogdanov Then

Igor and Grichka Bogdanov, French identical twin celebrities, began their careers as science television presenters in the 1970s, but their identities and social lives frequently overshadowed their jobs. The Bogdanov affair, in particular, called into doubt the validity of the theoretical physics articles they wrote and encouraged. The brothers remained in the public eye and were dubbed “heartthrobs” over time. Beginning in the late 1990s, viewers observed as their unique features changed drastically.

The Twins Now

Igor and Grichka Bogdanov’s fascination with cosmetic surgery began in the late 1990s and has lasted too long. The identical twins chose to have their operations simultaneously, which enabled them to keep their twin look as their faces changed. The Bogdanov twins are now 70 years old and appear like this. The twins are said to have undergone numerous chin and cheek implants, according to reports. Botox and fillers are also accessible.

Axl Rose Then

Guns’n’Roses, fronted by the lithe and limber, controversial-but-not-just-for-wearing-bike-shorts-on-stage Axl Rose, became undisputed kings of complex rock music in 1987. “Appetite for Destruction” has shipped over 30 million copies worldwide, with the follow-up “Use Your Illusion” selling another 35 million. Rose was famous back then for sparking riots and tossing liquor bottles at fans during live shows, in addition to possessing an impressive vocal ability. However, the project quickly disintegrated due to personal disagreements. For a long time, the band went on hiatus before eventually launching the album “Chinese Democracy,” which did not sell as well as their label had hoped.

It’s quick to get into the habit of comfort food if you don’t work too hard. That seems to be what happened to Axl Rose, who has transitioned from his tight-bodied youth to a more mature body form. He extols the virtues of Taco Bell on Twitter, but isn’t rock and roll just about excess? Doritos Cheesy in excess Backstage, Gordita Crunches could have eliminated much of his booze from his glory days. He is, though, on his way out. He took over as frontman for AC/DC on tour in 2016, and Guns’n’Roses recently reunited and planned a world tour. Axl, you’ve got it!

Jackie Stallone Then

Jackie Stallone is best known for being the mother of actor Sylvester Stallone and singer Frank Stallone. On the other hand, her presence sparked much more media attention than is typical for a celebrity mom, and she has made several appearances on the TV interview circuit. In 2005, she also featured on Celebrity Big Brother in the United Kingdom. However, it’s understandable that anyone in the public spotlight might be concerned with their image. Stallone has had more than her fair share of cosmetic surgeries.

We can’t fault Jackie for wanting to relive her childhood, but some people believe she went too fast with the surgeries. We tell, to each his own, though she has recently said that one of her operations was “botched.” Her lips may have seemed a little puffy at first, but these would fade with time and revert to a more normal condition. Jackie passed away peacefully in her sleep in 2020, at the age of 98.

Mark Hamill Then

In the first Star Wars series, Mark Hamill, who portrayed Luke Skywalker, was a cultural figure who influenced generations of filmmakers. Mark’s Star Wars popularity didn’t always bode well for his future. “I don’t want Luke Skywalker in my video,” one producer said emphatically. Mark’s performance was too legendary for him to be quickly placed in other films, and he spent the rest of his career performing voiceover work. Many of the cartoon adaptations of the story from the last few decades included him as Batman’s wicked nemesis, the Joker.

When the only job is off-screen, who cares what you look like? Mark Hamill let it slip for a while because, after all, who cares if no one sees you? And the traffic accident he had during the first Star Wars film certainly didn’t help matters. There are genuine scars from the crash, as seen in The Empire Strikes Back. Mark Hamill was ordered to hit the gym and regain some of his previous good-looking glory as Star Wars resurfaced for a sequel trilogy, and he was approached to reprise the part of Luke Skywalker. It succeeded, and he always sees it as the sex appeal he once was.

Catherine Bach Then

Catherine Bach, who played Daisy Duke in Dukes of Hazzard, was perhaps the most prominent sex icon of the 1980s. Throughout the season, she was known for wearing hot denim pants and looking alluring, and she served as a foil for the Duke brothers and their adventures fighting the hapless Boss Hogg and his underlings. Her legs were rumored to be insured for 1 million dollars at the height of her popularity. Have the stress. If you injure yourself when shaving, you might be prosecuted. Producers revived the part for a film, but this time it was Jessica Simpson who played Daisy.

Catherine Bach Now

Catherine Bach’s acting career took a turn for the worse during Dukes of Hazzard. The part had likely typecast her, excluding her from being cast in other shows or films. Another explanation is that she achieved all of her professional aspirations as an actress in the film business and desired to devote more time to her two children. Since then, she’s primarily acted in minor roles. She has, though, introduced her jewelry line with the Debenhams chain of stores in the United Kingdom. Peter Lopez, her ex-husband, committed suicide by shooting himself in April 2010.

Jocelyn Wildenstein Then

Jocelyn Wildenstein was a stunning young woman who was a New York City socialite at the height of her career. She was a world-traveling young woman who honed her marksmanship and piloting skills along the way. She’s also notorious for blowing money like it’s water. She spent over $60,000 a year on personal phone calls, and her wine cost was more than half a million dollars a year! Her future spouse, Alec Wildenstein, a wealthy art dealer with an aristocratic heritage, was introduced to her by Adnan Khashoggi, a Saudi arms dealer.

Jocelyn, I’m so sorry. It’s not uncommon for a woman to seek the help of a cosmetic surgeon as her appearance begins to deteriorate. That was not the case with Jocelyn Wildenstein, as you can see. She grew addicted to cosmetic surgery, and she gradually transformed into a beautiful young lady into something almost akin to Frankenstein’s monster. She’s sometimes recognized as “Catwoman” in the New York social scene, and she may be the poster girl on why cosmetic surgery isn’t necessarily the best option. According to a Vanity Fair interview, she claims the lynx has a beautiful vision. Friends claim she has one of the wild cats as a companion because this is her ultimate cosmetic goal/obsession.

Boy George Then

Boy George was born George Alan O’Dowd, and he was the frontman for Culture Club, one of the largest music groups of the 1980s. George stuck out as a London club kid noted for his quirky style and crazy attitudes until he was spotted by the Sex Pistol’s boss Malcolm McLaren. Boy George’s distinctive appearance helped sell millions of copies of songs like “Karma Chameleon,” “Time (Clock of the Heart),” and “Do You Just Want to Hurt Me.” His vivid androgynous style of clothing and appearance made him instantly identifiable to millions of fans all over the world.

Unfortunately for Boy George, life did not go smoothly after the band broke up for a long time. Culture Club’s demise was caused by a sexual partnership between George and Jon Moss, the band’s guitarist, drug use, and the unfortunate death of their keyboard player due to an overdose, as he subsequently disclosed in interviews. As a result of imprisoning and then sexually raping a rent child, he received a lengthy jail term. Boy George has completed his sentence and is now attempting a comeback. He writes novels, crafts clothing, is a photographer and continues to compose music. His most recent artistic work has earned praise for its sincerity and modesty.

Cybill Shepherd Then

Cybill Shepherd’s appearance as Maddie Hayes in TV’s Moonlighting in the 1980s brought her to the media’s attention. Still, it was her role in Taxi Driver opposite Robert DeNiro that cemented their friendship. Maddie Hayes and Bruce Willis’ on-screen chemistry was iconic, and the series was a worldwide success for four years. Interesting fact: Shepherd Bruce Willis contemplated having an affair when they worked together but opted against it to prevent adding to the show’s already high level of tension.

Though Shepherd is beautiful for her generation, her days of performing the lead position solely based on sex appeal are long gone. She’s also around as an actress, having appeared in shows including The L Word and Psych, as well as Criminal Minds and The Client List. Her most recent involvement was in the 2015 output Do You Believe?, which was strongly Christian-influenced. Her character was a grieving mother who had lost her baby. Shepherd has three children in actual life.

Caitlin Jenner Then

Caitlin Jenner was one of the many family members on the famous reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians only a few years ago. The film, which starred Kris Jenner, his siblings Kim, Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner and a slew of friends and love interests, had a massive following throughout its run. She’s also been on several other tv series, including The Weakest Link, Skating for Celebrities, and I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! I’m trying to get out of here.

Caitlin Jenner was not pleased with her appearance on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here. She felt dowdy without her daily schedule, according to a source close to the reality TV personality. Despite this, she seems at ease with her own skin these days. In an interview with the Daily Mail, she said, “It takes a little longer to get up, but now I can be myself every day.” That is what we can all strive for!

Bruce Willis Then

Bruce Willis, Cybill Shepherd’s Moonlighting co-star, started his acting career in off-Broadway productions. He is most recognized for his portrayal of John McClane, a policeman turned vigilante, in the Die Hard film series. He also appeared in The Sixth Sense, Sin City, Color of Night, Pulp Fiction, Looper, and 12 Monkeys. Willis’ work has been remarkably fruitful, including roles in over 60 films and several television programs. In 1987, he married Demi Moore, but the couple divorced in 2000. And after they divorced, they stayed partners and had three girls together.

Bruce’s career has shown no signs of slowing down. In 2015, he returned to the stage in a production of Stephen King’s Misery. Before that, he reprised his most well-known appearance in the 2013 film Good Day to Die Hard. However, the film is remembered as a critical and financial flop. In recent years, he has been outspoken in his advocacy for the US military in Iraq and Israel. Willis is married to Emma Heming, a model, and the couple has two children together. In North America, he was the eighth highest-grossing performer in 2010. It’s not bad.

Kelly Le Brock Then

Kelly Le Brock was an instant success from the moment she first appeared on television. In The Woman in Red, she played opposite Gene Wilder, a comedy/actor legend. It was only expected that the model’s daughter would be a natural in front of the camera! She later went on to star in the 1985 mega-hit teen sitcom Weird Science. She played a fantasy woman produced in a science experiment by two teenagers. Despite the film’s inherent misogyny, her role as a confident woman transforms the boys into men through a sequence of difficult lessons.

Kelly’s life has had its ups and downs, and her finest acting years seem to be behind her. She married actor Steven Seagal in 1986, but the couple divorced in 1996. During their marriage, they had three children together. Since then, she’s been involved in the homeopathic community and becomes one of the first women in the United States to possess a hyperbaric chamber, which is used to cure a host of illnesses such as diseases and blood bubbles. Today, LeBrock spends most of his time as a spokeswoman for a children’s cancer organization.

Chuck Norris Then

Because of his fame as a martial artist, Chuck Norris has been immortalized in a never-ending string of jokes on how tough he is. Any other well-known memes are: “Chuck Norris is not going to die of a heart attack. His spirit isn’t quite as stupid as his mind in attacking him.” He was still a significant heartthrob while he was younger, and his good looks earned him a large following (as well as for his acting and martial arts skills). One of his most notable appearances was as the protagonist of Walker, Texas Ranger. In the film Way of the Dragon, he co-starred with Bruce Lee.

The famed Chuck Norris has hardened rather than aged. His acting career is still going well, with recent appearances in The Expendables franchise. He’s a devout Christian as well. He’s written several books on Christianity. Chuck is also a Republican who has worked for Mike Huckabee as the Republican presidential candidate and devotes a significant amount of his time (and money) to Republican causes. He also has a personal health column on WordNetDaily, as well as several fitness-related infomercials. Norris is famous on social media and regularly updates his followers on his family.

Whoopi Goldberg Then

It’s probably fair to conclude Whoopi Goldberg has never been a sex icon. More than her beauty, she’s known for her incredible acting and boisterous attitude. She has earned 13 Emmy nominations and has collected at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award. In 1985, she received critical praise for her performance in The Color Purple, a film about an oppressed black woman in the Deep South. But it was her appearance in Ghost in the 1990s that cemented her spot in the public eye. She appeared in a slew of successful films and television shows, including Sister Act, Hollywood Squares, and The View.

After the Ghost days, Whoopi has undoubtedly added a few pounds. Many of this has been credited in the media to her love of a good joint, contributing to the munchies on occasion. Plus, it’s just normal for most of us to accumulate weight over time. Though Whoopi still performs on occasion, she now devotes most of her attention to LGBT advocacy. Her “Give a Damn” movement aims to persuade homosexual, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals to join forces alongside heterosexual people to pursue equal and fair lives. That’s incredible. Thank you for what you do, Whoopi!

Wayne Newton Then

For decades, singer Wayne Newton has become one of the most well-known entertainers to emerge from Las Vegas, Nevada. He was a hot commodity in his prime, with songs like “Daddy, Don’t You Walk Too Far” and “Years” charting in the Billboard Top 100. “Danke Schoen,” which featured prominently in the classic 1980s film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, is perhaps his most famous hit. Much of the top-name entertainers of the 1970s backed Wayne Newton throughout his career, including Lucille Ball, George Burns, Bobby Darin, Jack Benny, and Danny Thomas.

Wayne Newton’s personal life hasn’t been ideal, and in addition to his ever-expanding waistline, his assets have been a total disaster. He was investigated over different ways of financial mismanagement for most of the 2000s, and it all came to a head in 2012 when he filed bankruptcy. The worst is done from Wayne’s view, and he’s back in his old home, having agreed with his creditors. Things aren’t just doom and gloom, though. Mr. Entertainment is actively interested in charities that collect money for diabetes treatment. That’s fantastic!

Linda Evans Then

Linda Evans started her acting career as Audra Barkley in the Western television series The Big Valley. It isn’t, though, what she is well known for. Her appearance as Krystle Carrington in the 1980s’ smash hit mega soap Dynasty catapulted her to success. She portrayed Krystle for almost eight years, and the program drew in over 20 million viewers in the United States and millions more across the world. Linda Evans has been nominated for the Golden Globes five times in a row for her performance. Evans also captured the British television series Hell’s Kitchen in 2009 after appearing on the show’s revival episode, Dynasty: Catfights and Caviar.

Those pesky plastic surgeons are at it again, cracking hearts. Where can their patients learn to mature gracefully (and naturally) without resorting to the knife? Playboy magazine published Linda Evans’ stunning good looks in 1971. So it was only expected that when those looks started to disappear, Linda looked for a fast fix. She enlisted the support of a medical expert. Unfortunately, as in any beauty procedure, there’s a chance that things won’t go exactly as planned. They didn’t do that for Linda, too. She’s been on TV on many occasions to open up about the botched surgery.

John Travolta Then

John Travolta got his start on the iconic television series Welcome Back, Kotter. Though, Travolta’s success owes a great deal to the 1970s mega-hits Saturday Night Fever and Grease. He was young, charismatic, and had a unique ability to dance. Millions of young girls had his posters on their walls. He appeared to have it all figured out. In the 1980s, his acting career suffered a significant hit as it seemed he couldn’t manage to secure a top part. Even when he did, the films sank without a trace. Fortunately, Travolta’s positions began to reappear.

Some claim he’s transformed from a heartthrob to a hunk of lust. Although John’s career was revived in the 1990s, due to his inclusion in 1994’s Pulp Fiction, things have not gone well for him in the appearance department. He seems to have gained weight and lost hair, as we all do from time to time. John has been roundly chastised for his presence in the newspapers, demonstrating that equality works in both directions. He’s even been attempting to disprove that he had a romantic involvement with Douglas Gotterba, his former pilot.

Goldie Hawn Then

Goldie Hawn earned the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her first leading part in Cactus Flower in 1969. As Walter Matthau’s suicidal fiancee, it was a difficult task. However, she is well known for her comic roles, and her most prominent role is that of Private Benjamin, for which she received an Academy Award. Her perfect blonde hair and good appearance propelled her onto a multi-decade career. Butterflies Are Free, Housesitter, Shampoo, Death Becomes Her, and First Wives Club are among Hawn’s other film credits. Kurt Russell, a fellow filmmaker, has been her husband since 1983.

Let’s be honest: Goldie Hawn is now in her 70s, and it’s pretty challenging to be a complete fox in that era. Kurt Russell, with whom she has been in a relationship since 1983, is now her boyfriend. The Hawn Foundation, which focuses on improving academic achievement for children, now takes up the majority of her time. The foundation focuses a lot of its efforts on a research analysis that will show how children can demonstrate better academic learning practices. Kate Hudson, Hawn’s popular and beautiful daughter, looks a lot like her mother. As she gets older, the younger blonde starlet would undoubtedly seek help from her mum!

Edward Furlong Then

Edward Furlong, on the other hand, shone brilliantly from the outset. He won Teen Idol and went on to appear in Terminator 2: Judgement Day as John Connor. In American History X, his performance as a skinhead was lauded for its authenticity and criticized its terrifying violence. Furlong also appeared in Pet Sematary 2, American Heart, Detroit Rock City, The Green Hornet, and A Home of Our Own over the years. His acting career lasted until the 1990s, with varying degrees of popularity (including another Terminator film), and he also recorded a song, Hold on Tight, which was only released in Japan.

Edward’s life finally spiraled out of balance. His reputation started to fall apart as a result of severe drug and alcohol issues that rapidly worsened. Edward was eventually admitted to treatment in October of 2000. He said, “I was a drug user who used opium and cocaine. It was very frightening. I haven’t spoken about [partying] in a long time. Playing, clubbing, and doping coke seem to be lonely now. Taking heavy drugs gives me insomnia.” His previous drug addiction problems are clearly seen on his face.

Janice Dickinson Then

And there was Janice Dickinson, who might have been the first supermodel, but there are other respectable candidates. Dickinson’s allegations are backed up by her book, No Lifeguard on Duty: The Accidental Life of the World’s First Supermodel. What is certain is that she was unquestionably one of the most attractive women of her time. During the 1970s and 1980s, she was a worldwide fashion sensation. In 2003, she was cast as a judge on America’s Top Model, so who else to offer guidance to aspiring models than Janice Dickinson?

Despite running her own modeling business and working on television, Janice had to be pining for her childhood because she was allowed to enter the feared plastic surgeon’s knife. Unfortunately, Janice, like so many other actors, found this to be a terrible decision. She’s not identifiable as the lady she used to be because of the operation. Her next television performance came on the program Botched!, on which the show’s specialists worked to undo the severe damage to her appearance. In March of 2016, Dickinson was diagnosed with breast cancer. She is coping fine with her medications as of this writing.
