Did Kate Gosselin Get a Facelift?

John M. Heller/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Kate Gosselin has undergone an extreme makeover -- at least that's what Us Weekly is speculating.

The magazine consulted a New York plastic surgeon who believes the reality TV blogger may have had a facelift, based on what he describes as her defined jawline and changed eye shape in recent photos.

An Us Weekly source claims Gosselin is "consumed with her appearance" and "wants to look 10 years younger."  According to the magazine, Gosselin underwent a tummy tuck and a breast enhancement procedure in recent years. Indeed, included before and after pics of the mother of eight show the drastic changes in her appearance.

Kate Winslet Joins Actresses to Create Anti-Plastic Surgery Team

Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage(LONDON) -- Titanic's Kate Winslet has joined her fellow Oscar winners Emma Thompson and Rachel Weisz to form The British Anti-Cosmetic Surgery League.

The trio pledges to avoid the usual Hollywood pressure not to age gracefully, shunning all cosmetic surgery procedures, according to the U.K.'s Telegraph.

"I will never give in," 35-year-old Winslet was quoted as saying.  "It goes against my morals, the way that my parents brought me up and what I consider to be natural beauty...I am an actress, I don't want to freeze the expression of my face."

Thompson, 52, agrees, saying, "We're in this awful youth-driven thing now where everybody needs to look 30 at 60."

Heidi Montag Replaces Plastic Surgery With Extreme Exercise

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- Heidi Montag has replaced her penchant for plastic surgery with extreme exercise.

"I've been working out from, like, 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. for two months now," Montag told US Weekly magazine at a pool party in Las Vegas over the weekend. "I've been working out really hard because I had this pool party and I was like, I have to be in shape. And I was actually a lot overweight. It was the most I've ever been because I've kind of been in hiding eating pie with my husband and puppies, so I needed to get back in shape."

The 5' 2'' reality star, first known for her role on MTV's The Hills, says she is down to 103 pounds, dropping 27 pounds after hitting a personal high of 130 this year. Montag said she took a year off from the gym after her marathon of at least 10 plastic surgery procedures in late 2009.

"My breasts, because they're so big, really needed some time," she explained. "Sometimes I get shooting pains, but I hear that's normal."

Montag dramatically reshaped her face and body in a marathon plastic surgery session, which included breast implants, a brow lift, botox, a nose job revision, fat injections in her cheeks, a chin reduction, neck liposuction and having her ears pinned back.

In a November 2010 interview with ABC News' Cynthia McFadden, Montag said she felt like she'd become a prisoner in her own made-over body.

"Sometimes I wish I could go back to the original Heidi," she said. "I don't want the biggest boobs in the world and, to be honest, I would take them out and downsize them but I don't want to go under the knife again. I feel like I'm stuck with them now."

After much media scrutiny, Montag admitted that she was addicted to plastic surgery and believed that the grueling procedures and recovery weren't worth the outcome.

"I hope that people really hear what I'm saying about plastic surgery, and I hope they really hear that I'm saying I would take it back," she said. "I almost risked everything, all my relationships and myself, for vanity."
