A lot of things changed this year, and these celebrity transformations of 2014 are at the very top of the list.

Melissa McCarthy

Have you seen Melissa McCarthy lately? The 44-year-old actress surprised everyone this year with her new slimmed-down frame at the P.S. ARTS Express Yourself event in Santa Monica.

EJ Johnson

Melissa McCarthy wasn’t the only one that surprised us with a dramatic weight loss this year.

Magic Johnson’s son EJ made his slimmed-down debut in October after dropping 40lbs thanks to gastric sleeve surgery.

Rick Ross

After he suffered two seizures, Rick Ross made a commitment to weight loss and Crossfit this year. He shocked all of his Instagram followers when he posted photos of his 100lb weight loss success on his page.


Recognize the slim face in this photo? It’s Adele! The singer surprised all of her Twitter followers with this pic of her slimmed-down face for World Water Day! No word on just how much weight Adele’s lost yet, but we’re dying to see her new figure!

Mary-Kate Olsen

Full House stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen used to look alike. But Mary-Kate’s new face has a lot of fans wondering if maybe one half of the twosome has gone under the knife.

Kristen Stewart

This year the actress shed her Twilight look with a much shorter look and much bolder fashion choices. Fashionistas everywhere approve! 

Mickey Rourke

Have you seen The Wrestler actor’s new look?! After years of struggling with poor reconstructive surgery after his boxing days, Mickey Rourke is almost back to looking like his old self!


Renee Zellweger

This is definitely the biggest celebrity transformation story of 2014.

Renee Zellweger sent the plastic surgery rumors flying when she hit the red carpet in 2014 looking completely different. 45-year-old actress says her new look is all natural, but we’re all still trying to wrap our heads around the transformation.


Jake Gyllenhaal

My jaw is still on the floor at Jake Gyllenhaal’s almost-unbelievable transformation for his upcoming movie The Big Hope.


Elle Fanning

First Elle surprised us by distinguishing herself from her older sister Dakota by dying her signature blonde locks auburn. Then she revealed the even more shockingly dramatic look on the left. But chances are, Elle won’t be keeping her super-short locks. They’re just in place while she acts in her newest role as a transgender teen in the new drama Three Generations.

Jenny McCarthy

Funny lady Jenny McCarthy started this year by ditching the extensions she’s known for. She released this Tweet featuring her brand new bob in January. Are you a fan?


Everyone was buzzing about Eminem’s gaunt features after his speech at the Wall Street Journal’s Innovator Of The Year Awards in New York on Wednesday. Eminem hasn’t given anyone any clues as to what’s behind his haggard look but we’re all hoping it’s nothing serious!

Dawn Richard
Dawn Richard shocked her Instagram fans when she debuted this photo of her new dreads. But Dawn’s Instagram fans were much more interested in the changes that happened to her face.
