Do you know who they are?

Everyone's looks change as they get older. But whether due to aging, plastic surgery, hard living or some combination of the three, the unrecognizable stars on the following pages might have trouble pulling the "Do you know who I am?" card. Do you remember Jaleel White, who played Steve Urkel on Family Matters? Yeah, he's not a pencil-neck geek anymore. Lara Flynn Boyle, who played Donna Hayward on Twin Peaks, did not return for the long-awaited third season... and the reasons are obvious. Kenny Rogers still has silver hair and matching beard, but everything around them looks completely altered... and not just by time. Mickey Rourke had one of the most handsome mugs in Hollywood, but moonlighting as a boxer -- and the subsequent plastic surgery to try to correct the damage -- has left him looking like a half-melted candle. Meg Ryan was America's sweetheart in countless romantic comedies, but what she did to her face with cosmetic surgery is no laughing matter.

Other stars who are almost unrecognizable today include Haley Joel Osment, Axl Rose, Grace Slick, David Lee Roth, Rose McGowan, Joan Van Ark, Kathleen Turner and many more. Do you think you'll be able to recognize them from a recent picture? Good luck! Get Started
