Celebs Who Treated Their Bodies Like Garbage

They say the body is a temple, but these celebrities have misused and mistreated theirs in more ways than one. From Steve O using his as a crash test dummy to Heidi Montag volunteering hers for intense amounts of plastic surgery, see which stars have tested the limits of their bodies and why.

Heidi Montag

Heidi Montag is known for her starring role in The Hills (2006-2010), but she gained greater recognition for becoming a real-life Barbie doll. In 2010, she underwent a massive body-renovation, electing to have 10 different surgeries at once.

According to People, she had a mini brow lift, her chin shaved, Botox injections in her face, fat injections in the cheeks, lip injections, her ears pinned back, a breast augmentation to a size F, liposuction in assorted places, a butt augmentation, and her back shaped. In July 2016, she told the magazine she regretted going under the knife. "I was in way over my head with the surgeries," she said. "Sometimes I can't believe I did that to us and to me. It's been a lot to overcome."

Steve O

Few people know what it feels like to be a human crash test dummy. Steve O, of the famous MTV thriller Jackass (2000-2002), has broken 12 bones in his body and knocked out about 10 teeth, according to a 2015 tweet. Per the The Huffington Post, his worst injury was when he threw himself off a second-floor balcony and landed on his face on the concrete. "In that one fall I broke my cheek bone, I broke seven teeth, I had a concussion, I had 10 stitches in my chin and a broken wrist," he said. He claims the stunt was worth the pain. In August 2016, he shattered his right ankle and broke his left heel after attempting to skateboard off a wooden porta potty as it was being smashed into by a car.

Steve O also infamously battled a strong drug addiction. According to MTV News, he entered rehab in 2008 after writing a goodbye letter to alcohol, marijuana, nitrous oxide, amphetamines, LSD, ketamine, and cocaine. So "no pain pills for Steve," reported TMZ.



Lindsay Lohan

Professional party girl Lindsay Lohan has put her body through the wringer. The troubled actress has admitted to abusing alcohol and cocaine in her past—completing at least six different trips to rehab to fight her demons, according to The Huffington Post.

Lohan's erratic behavior in July 2016 raised a firestorm of concern about her body. After a major public fight with fiancé Egor Tarabasov, Lohan alluded to a pregnancy on social media. Days later, she surfaced on a yacht smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol. The internet swiftly slammed the Mean Girls (2004) star for misusing her body while supposedly caring for another life. While Lohan's father confirmed her pregnancy, her mother denied it. At the time of this writing, Lohan has stayed mum about the status of her womb.

Charlie Sheen

There's perhaps no bigger star known to treat his body like a trash receptacle than Charlie Sheen. The controversial actor has a history of paid sex, drugs, and alcohol. According to the National Enquirer (via the New York Post), Sheen spent $1.6 million on hookers in the 2013 fiscal year. The former star of Two and a Half Men (2003-2015) has entered rehab a number of times, and in a 2011 interview with ABC News, he confessed to regularly doing large amounts of crack to achieve his desired high. "I was banging seven-gram rocks and finishing them, because that's how I roll," he said. "I have one speed. I have one gear. Go." When asked if he's worried about someday dying from drug use, he said "dying's for fools." Sheen came out as HIV positive in the fall of 2015.

Lil' Kim

Lil' Kim went from beautiful and boisterous to nearly unrecognizable. The "Crush on You" rapper appears to have slowly transformed her body over the years, allegedly lightening her skin, changing the shape of her nose, and making other alterations. In April 2016, fans took Lil' Kim to task after she posted a collage of selfies on Instagram. According to a plastic surgeon contacted by Us Weekly, Lil Kim went to toxic lengths to change her body. "It's clear that there has been some skin bleaching," said Dr. Jennifer Levine. "She's probably used chemicals, which contain very high doses of acids, on her face, combined with highly-acid creams to lighten her skin.

Lil' Kim has remained coy about her physical metamorphoses, but earlier in 2016, she slammed internet rumors that she had enhanced the lower half of her body after exaggerated images of her butt and thighs were published.

Paula Deen

Paula Deen is known for her down-home Southern cooking and recipes that involve lots of butter, cream cheese, salt, deep-fried everything, and more butter, but it seems those calorie-laden meals caught up with her in the worst way. In 2012, Deen announced she was battling Type 2 diabetes at age 64, reported The New York Times. She was officially diagnosed three year prior, but chose to keep the information private, which some critics found deceitful and irresponsible, considering the health risks accompanying many of the recipes on her hit cooking show. Since going public with her illness, Deen has dropped about 35 pounds, telling ABC News, "The thing that I'm really trying to focus on y'all is moderation, moderation, moderation. Eat a cookie, just don't eat six of them," she said.

Blac Chyna

Beauty entrepreneur and budding reality star Blac Chyna has attracted plenty of negative press for the way she's treated her body during pregnancy. Though health experts warn expectant mothers to be choosy about the types of cosmetic products they use, Chyna is famous for promoting questionable beauty enhancements. In August 2016, TMZ said she momentarily endorsed a controversial butt spray called Booty Pop that promises to magically enhance one's backside.

And despite all the science supporting healthy eating and conscientious weight gain during pregnancy, Chyna seems to be paying no mind to the pregnancy professionals. "Why should I watch my weight when I'm pregnant," she posted on Instagram; "My goal is to gain, like, 100 pounds this pregnancy," she announced on Snapchat (via Us Weekly). Chyna reportedly loves takeout (the word "love" could be an understatement.) According to Us Weekly, baby daddy Rob Kardashian dropped a whopping $13,000 on food deliveries in one month. Her favorite delicacy: Philly cheesesteaks and P.F. Chang's.
