Mickey Rourke is an American actor, screenwriter, and retired boxer who is more known for his ever-changing appearance than his successes. The 1982 film Diner helped to put Rourke on the map and jumpstarted his career in acting. In 1991 the actor decided he wanted to leave acting behind him and start his boxing career, but he retired from that in 1994 and returned to acting.
Since first reaching celebrity in status in 1982, Rourke is no longer the same man. His appearance has changed drastically over the years due to plastic surgery. Granted, his plastic surgery woes were a direct correlation to his boxing injuries, and unfortunately, he received some botched work.
Vicki Gunvalson is a reality-TV star who made her way into fame from Bravo’s The Real Housewives Of Orange County. Gunvalson, who is referred to as the OG of the OC, has been on the “RHOTC” since the series first began and has gone through some serious drama in the public eye. From “initiating” new members on the show, to dating a man who lied about having cancer, things seem to always be changing for Vicki…including her looks.
After having a series of mental breakdowns on camera, Vicki did the only thing she knew to change her situation: change her appearance. Ex-cast member, Slade Smiley always referred to Gunvalson as “Miss Piggy,” which obviously took a toll on the reality star. She went as far as changing her face entirely to get the remarks to stop, but she wound up drawing more attention to herself.

His most recent reports state he visited CSI: The Experience‘s two-year anniversary in 2011 with Holly Madison. Carrot Top looks like he is in a better place than he was a few years back due to drug abuse and run-ins with the law, but if it weren’t for his bright red hair, he wouldn’t be recognizable.
