She was known for natural looks, void of fake tan and thick make-up.But Ashley Judd looks a far cry from her Hollywood heyday.
The actress sparked plastic surgery rumours when she appeared on a Canadian talk show to promote her new TV series, Missing.
Spot the difference: Ashley yesterday, and in the 2002 movie High Crimes
The 43-year-old sported a puffy ‘pillow face’ – the term given to women who overuse facial fillers- although she doesn’t appear to have gained weight to her figure.
Fans took to Twitter to question her looks on The Marilyn Denis Show on CTV in Toronto.
One asked: ‘What happened to Ashley Judd’s face? Another plastic surgery butcher job?’
Another said: ‘It looks weirdly puffy but she doesn’t appear to have gained weight.’
And one user questioned: ‘Anyone else completely weirded out by Ashley Judd’s new face?,’ while one simply wrote that it looked ‘Just a mess.’
Increasing numbers of celebrities are getting the plumped-up look, as opposed to the pinched back ‘wind tunnel’ results of a face-lift or the ‘frozen’ Botox look.
The actress joins Lindsay Lohan, Madonna and Kylie Minogue as the most obvious examples of stars whose ever youthful glow suggests they may have had fat implants in their cheeks.
Ashley, who is married to Scottish racing driver Dario Franchitti, also looked a little puffier than usual as she arrived in Toronto with her dog Buttermilk.
Her skin also looked a little red, as if she had just had a treatment of some sort.
Ashley is known for her roles in crime dramas such as Kiss The Girls, High Crimes and Double Jeopardy.
Her new show Missing tells the story of a worried mother and retired CIA agent, played by Ashley, who travels to Europe and track down her son, who disappears while on a summer internship in Italy.
