Almost all Hollywood celebrities who care about their appearance have had their bodies altered, including Marylin Monroe. A few cosmetic operations did not turn out as planned. Kenny Rogers, Dana Delany, Michael Jackson, Daryl Hannah, John Travolta, Kris Jenner, and Cali Huntsbe are just a few celebrities that gambled and lost.
