We understand that for people in Hollywood, there's a lot of pressure to look a certain way. With your entire appearance constantly scrutinized by the public, it can be easy to cave into societal pressures. But, sometimes, trying to look "good for your age" can actually look, well, horrible. And the latest celeb to fall victim to this phenomenon? Talent show villain, Simon Cowell.
He's always been partial to the odd cosmetic procedure (just check out his Day-Glo teeth), but after going even further with his transformation, he subsequently left people completely baffled by his bizarre new look.

Simon Cowell is no stranger to internet controversy.As a judge on huge shows like The X Factor and America's Got Talent, he's cultivated a reputation as something of a loveable rogue.
And there's something else that Simon is pretty well known for.For as long as he's been in the public eye, he's always had a very distinctive (and some would say, kind of bizarre) appearance. His oddly tent-like t-shirts combined with high-waisted trousers and brush-like hair means that he's always recognizable.
He's also no stranger to the odd bit of... help.

But after letting us know why he has had such a dramatic appearance change, fans have turned their delight into worry.
It's all thanks to this new "vegan diet."
This prompted him to make some drastic lifestyle changes.
There's one bad habit he hasn't seemed to shake off yet...

In the past, he's talked about the lack of control he has when it comes to indulging.
via: Getty ImagesSpeaking to Ellen Degeneres last year, he admitted he went to see a doctor that set him straight. "He [the doctor] said, 'You have the worst diet I've ever met from any patient. So I went, 'Okay, out of the smoking, the drinking, and diet, what do I have to drop?' And he said, 'The diet.'"
"It was easier than I thought..."
Besides the vegan diet, Cowell also admitted he has had (another) facelift.
via: Getty ImagesRight, so you got our hopes up saying that it was all down to the vegan diet. Now you're saying I also need a facelift on top of that? No thank you! And he's not the only one...
He also said that Amanda Holden went a little overboard with the botox...
via: GettyShocker! The music mogul also told The Mirror that he's been left in hysterics by old clips of him and Amanda, forty-nine, sporting their significantly smoother complexions.
Though, now, he holds his hands up to the fact that he may have used too much..."You know, the old clips of us are hysterical, Amanda's always like, 'What was I thinking?', I said, 'Well, I don't look a lot better.' I look all right now, but certain years it was like, 'Wow, I don't know what was going on.'"
The two of them recently appeared side by side during the latest installment of Britain's Got Talent.
