jennifer greyThere is no such thing as growing old gracefully in Hollywood. Both men and women fight it tooth and nail and understandably so. There is a lot of pressure to look a certain way when you work in music, movies, TV, and fashion. So when those inevitable laugh lines start to show or the eyelids start to droop, there is only one thing to do if you want to remain a star -- go under the knife! So it's no surprise that plastic surgery is about as common as personal assistants there. However, the results are not always good. In fact, they can be downright frightening. Take a look at 8 hot stars who ruined their faces.

    Donatella has spent much of her life surrounded by beautiful, glamorous models clamouring to wear her Versace designs. As such, it must have been especially hard to age in that industry.

    Rumor has it she has gone under the knife several times to maintain that "youthful" glow, but Donatella has only admitted to Botox treatments.

    "Most people are telling me I look horrible," Griffith told Us Weekly in 2012. That's certainly a hurtful new reality for the once-hot starlet. To fight the effects of age, it's rumored that she's had Botox, injectable fillers, and an upper eyelid lift.

    Nobody puts Baby in a corner! The world hated her (in a good way) in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and fell in love with Grey during her starring turn in Dirty Dancing. Yes, she had a "bigger" nose than most starlets at the time, but she was gorgeous!
