Time's not on their side

Time? Hello? Where'd you go? And I thought you were by my side!

We've taken a gander at a host of famous folks who have faced Father Time in a remarkably graceful manner, so now it's time to spotlight a few celebs, both living and dead, who haven't.

The factors that have pushed these personalities — several of them were once legitimate sex symbols — to "That's what he/she looks like now?" status are various: years of hard drinking, heavy smoking and pill popping; obesity brought on by poor diet and stress-related overeating; painful diseases including alcoholism and mental health woes; and, in some cases, entirely too much plastic surgery. In a couple of instances, they've managed to make positive late-in-life improvements, proving that it's never too late for a drastic transformation.
