Photos of Celebrities Who Look So Unhealthy, It’s Scary

We can’t imagine what life in the limelight is really like. But for the ultra-famous, their everyday lives are on display for all to see. While many boast toned figures thanks to several hours of gym time daily and personal chefs making pristine meals, it seems not every celebrity is looking their best these days. In fact, many celebs are looking scary unhealthy, leading us to speculate what may be going wrong. Here are the ones who look like they’re in need of serious help.

1. Denise Richards

She was known for her sultry curves back in the ’90s when her role in The World Is Not Enough catapulted her to Bond-girl fame. But a couple years ago, Denise Richards was looking thinner than ever, leaving many fans concerned. Daily Mail Online reports her arms and legs looked unhealthily skinny as she roamed around town in workout gear.

Denise says there’s absolutely nothing to worry about, though, and she eats sweets and junk food with her kids. And back in 2013 she had to address the same rumors about her thinness, but she said she’s totally healthy. It’s just her busy lifestyle that keeps her so small.

This fashion designer, who’s known for dressing famous folks, has now become quite a celebrity herself. But being in the limelight certainly has its drawbacks, as Rachel Zoe’s weight has been the subject of controversy for nearly a decade. Back in 2008, when fans first began to speculate about her thinness, she said she’s never seen herself as too skinny. We’re guessing she still has that mentality, as Life & Style says she looked particularly thin at an October event.

We fondly remember Matthew McConaughey for his iconic roles in Dazed and Confused and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. But the 48-year-old actor is really starting to show his age these days thanks to movie roles requiring him to lose and gain extreme amounts of weight.

Five years ago, his oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club put him at just 143 pounds, E! News reports. And just a few years later, he’s taken on another role requiring him to put on 50 pounds. We can’t imagine what these extremes are doing to his body — but it certainly isn’t looking good.

4. Burt Reynolds

This famous TV and movie star was known for his good looks back in his heyday. And though Burt Reynolds isn’t exactly young anymore, fans have become increasingly concerned over his appearance. Apparently, years of doing his own stunt work have made walking difficult for him, and a broken jaw years ago also lead to weight loss and addiction.

Last year, Burt walked with a cane during a Philadelphia Comic Con event, Closer Weekly reports, and one fan said he looked “weak and frail.” Another friend of the actor told the publication, “Burt has health problems on so many fronts and they’re slowly eating away at him.”

5. Regis Philbin

For an aging actor well into his 80s, Regis usually looks like he’s still going strong. Lately, however, Radar Online reports an insider says Regis has become “shockingly frail.” And Dr. Stuart Fischer also comments that he doesn’t look like he’s healthy. As the doc says, “he looks so drawn; there’s very little muscle mass.”

So, what’s behind Regis’ ultra-thin look? The publication notes he’s fighting high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and heart issues on a near-constant basis.

6. Diane Kruger

This slim celeb has always looked stunning in movies and on the red carpet, but fans became worried this past year over Diane Kruger’s teeny-tiny waistline. Daily Mail Online reports the 41-year-old actress looked thinner than usual in 2016 after her breakup with her partner of 10 years, Joshua Jackson.

We’re hoping Diane doesn’t continue down the skinny path and instead sticks with a healthy diet. She says she’s more focused on getting fit and strong than staying rail-thin, so that’s a good sign.

Known for her role on Modern Family, Sarah Hyland has dropped a ton of weight recently due to being put on bed rest, Entertainment Tonight reports. The starlet says she’s devastated by her extreme weight loss, as she loves to appear strong, fit, and healthy — but her current circumstances have caused massive muscle loss.

As she says, “It’s never fun to look in the mirror and see your hard work at the gym fade away or have your legs be the size of one’s arms.” But, when she’s able to get back to the gym, she says she wants to go back to being the “STRONG, lean, and fabulous self” she knows she truly is.

Tori Spelling has been slammed for her rail-thin figure for years now — and these days, she still appears to be sporting that physique. Back in 2012 after giving birth to her fourth child, she reportedly lied about how she lost the baby weight, Daily Mail Online says. At the time, she claimed exercise helped her shed the pounds — but in reality, it was dieting that did the trick.

As someone who doesn’t love to exercise, she said she instead went for the “Just Keep Your Mouth Shut and Eat Air diet.” She also nibbled on rice cakes and ate low-calorie soups for her meals. Doesn’t sound too healthy to us.

9. Lucy Hale

Known for her role in Pretty Little Liars, Lucy Hale raised eyebrows recently when she called herself “fat” when referring to an old picture of her on Instagram. Lucy has struggled with anorexia in the past, and she’s no stranger to disparaging comments about her thinness, Seventeen notes. But even so, fans were troubled by her recently shrinking appearance and the labeling of the older photo. She apologized for her potentially offensive comment, but we’re still worried.

10. Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny says she eats plenty of junk food, but after seeing her frail frame, fans are tending to disagree. People reports the Real Housewives star defends her weight, saying that she actually really loves eating and doesn’t work out every day. “I love food, and I like good food. I don’t like fat-free crap,” she comments.

She admits, however, that she grew up in a weight-obsessed household, which caused her to learn unhealthy behaviors early on. Now, she tries to promote a healthy lifestyle to her young daughter.

11. Angelina Jolie

Angelina has had her fair share of health issues — and it seems her busy life post-divorce has left her looking extremely unhealthy once again. As The Inquisitr notes in 2016, it appears Angelina was down to just 90 pounds at one point, as the divorce seemed to push her emotional and physical limits. An inside source even said she was mostly living on just herbal tea and grains.

This isn’t the first time fans have been worried over Angelina’s health, as she’s been dangerously thin before. We’re hoping she’s doing better now.

The Olsen twins are no strangers to tabloids, and it seems fans are still worried about Mary-Kate’s disappearing figure. The Inquisitr notes the famous twins are rarely seen in public these days, as they’re much more family and fashion-focused. But more recent photos of Mary-Kate brought on rumors of plastic surgery and concern over her slim frame.

It seems the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate in particular, have had many battles with varying illnesses. We’re just hoping MK isn’t slipping into unhealthy eating habits.

It’s been quite a wild year for Aaron Carter, which included drug speculation and an exclusive appearance on The Doctors. As Daily Mail Online notes, Aaron told his fans he’s so thin due to a hiatal hernia affecting his appetite. And according to tests on The Doctors, the pop star was also prescribed a variety of potentially dangerous and addicting medications to help him deal with mental illness. These may have added to his worrisome appearance as well.

It seems Aaron’s doing better as of late — let’s see if he can keep it up.

14. Ruby Rose

After this actress posted a picture of herself looking ultra thin on Instagram, fans flocked to the comments section with worry, Daily Mail Online reports. After one fan suggested Ruby should “inspire” others by gaining a bit of weight, the star clapped back with, “I can inspire them to go plant based and stop eating the nasty processed food, fast food and cancer causing foods. … [M]aybe you can train yourself to stop seeing what you think is the only way to achieve someone else’s body type.”

Ruby claims she’s “stupidly healthy,” even amongst all the rumors. And her fluctuating weight as of late may be due to recent illness.

15. Tara Reid

We remember Tara Reid for appearances in movies like The Big Lebowski and Josie and the Pussycats. Today, however, people know the 42-year-old for her tiny waistline and unhealthy appearance. Tara has never exactly looked like the pinnacle of health, but E! News notes her scary-skinny frame she’s been flaunting recently left many fans worried.

Tara defends herself by saying she’s “just a thin girl” and that she eats plenty. She also notes body-shaming isn’t new to her — so maybe she’s fine after all.
