What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

For those that don't know the name, she was the hot lead detective in Silk Stalkings and then one of the lifeguards in the last years of Baywatch. She was a real beautiful woman and today I saw this:



WTF?!?

Re: What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

I am shocked, SHOCKED! That a mother in her late 30s does not have the same sexy and youthful appearance that she had when she was in her 20s. She should be ashamed of herself!! And the fact that she would dare to appear in public is AN OUTRAGE!!!

Looks like she made a cardinal sin in Hollywood: She failed to get plastic surgery.

She doesn't even look to be the same person. People changes, but wow! she either is ill or didn't take care of herself at all.

She gained weight and it shows in her face. Inconceivable!

Are you Mitzi's husband by any chance? You are acting like I insulted your wife.

Re: What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

With how thin her body appears to be there is no way her face looks like that from weight. You don't gain all your weight in your face. Appears a side effect of prednisone is called "moon-face". Looks alot like that...

Guess again. When that promo shot for Baywatch was taken, she WAS in her late thirties. Whatever happened to her happened in her forties. And it doesn't look like simple weight gain to me. Her face is disproportionately puffy, like the type of reaction I've seen in some people to certain medications. (D'oh! jiffy97 beat me to it!)

But if it is "just" weight gain, then it is sad. Not because she should be vainly trying to have the same youthful appearance she did in the twenties (or, correctly adjusted, in her thirties). There is nothing wrong with looking like a 48-year-old. But she doesn't look like a healthy 48-year-old.

I'm agreeing with you, man. Her appearance is shocking. And now that I've learned that she is 10 years older than I thought, her deterioration is even more outrageous. It's outrageous, egregious, preposterous!

Maybe she has this disease. From wiki:

Kapture is the official celebrity spokesperson for the Xeroderma Pigmentosum Society.

But even if her ghastly appearance is the side effect of some medication, it is still not an excuse to go out in public and be photographed looking that way.

Re: What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

I don't agree with the idea that actresses are not allowed to grow old ungracefully. She is 48 after all. I am 4 years older and I would give her a second look. Great part about getting older is not only do young women look good, but so do older women.

That being said ... I think this picture shows the wrath of aging even more.

Re: What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

peoples faces tend to get more gaunt with age, unless there has been some drastic weight gain, which would be evident on the rest of her body. clearly there is something else at play here.

She looks like that woman who injected cooking oil into her face.

Looks like a fairly normal 48 year old woman to me. Sure many Hollywood stars work to stay in shape, but a lot of people sort of let go in their 30s and 40s.

Her body does but her face certainly doesn't. It's like she is suffering from the side effects of cortisone, but only on her face.

Re: What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

If you have access to someone in their late 40's facebook page, look at their friends. Most will have a wider face. A persons body can change depending on genetics. It happens.

You are all making way too much out of this.

Re: What happened to Mitzi Kapture?!?

Look at someone like Sela Ward. She's 54 now and looks just as glamorious and beautiful as she did 25 years ago on Sisters or even 10 years ago when she was in her 40's on Once and Again. It's just a matter on how well the actor or actress chooses to take care of themselves when they get older through diet and exercise....and maybe a nip and tuck here and there.

I don't know what the hell happened to Mitzi's face, but I'm sure if she was continuing to get regular work, she would have taken better care of herself physically.
