Name the two turning point films in which a hot actress all of a sudden gets ugly?

Are you ever surprised when a well-known attractive actress all of a sudden becomes real ugly, skanky, or just not attractive, due to plastic surgery, poorly aging, and/or letting one's health go? Well, I'm trying to figure out a list of actresses which have a drastic physical change "turning point" between two films. Here are the ones I can think of:

Kelly McGillis:
1. last hot film - Painted Angels (1998)
2. first ugly film - The Settlement (1999)

Melanie Griffith:
1. last hot film - Nobody's Fool (1994)
2. first ugly film - Now and Then (1995)

Meg Ryan:
1. last hot film - Proof of Life (2000)
2. first ugly film - Kate & Leopold (2001)

Kathleen Turner was hot through VI Warshawski. I don't think I've seen any of her movies since then but she sure went downhill.

Christina Ricci was a voluptuous young thing in Buffalo 66, now she looks like an anorexic alien.

I still like Christina Ricci.

I wonder if The Holiday was Cameron Diaz's last hot film, or if she just had a bad makeup artist on What Happens in Vegas, but she looked pretty bad in the trailer.

Lindsay Lohan's last hot film was Mean Girls, and then it all went very downhill.

Christina Ricci regained my respect with Black Snake Moan
I also thought Lindsey Lohan was hot in Georgia Rule

Hot in the Mask. Not in anything after.

Going from Monster to Black Snake Moan was certainly a blessing.

Although in Kathleen Turner's defense, I think she had a disease like Rheumatoid Arthritis or something that caused her looks to go down.

I thought Meg Ryan looked pretty cute with long strait hair in Kate and Leopold.

But that wasn't suddenly, there was a twenty year difference.

I'd say Emmanuel Seigner - Hot in Frantic & Bitter Moon
Not so much in The Ninth Gate

Yeah I can see what you're saying but I would put it like this...

Karen Allen was hot in Scrooged.
Karen Allen was not hot in Indy 4, but she's still a nice looking woman with a gorgeous smile.

Good one. I fell in love with her after Frantic. Need to watch the Ninth Gate again.

I'll second that. She looked terrible in The Dark Knight.
