[Blind Gossip] Despite the chatter at the SAG Awards, this fella did not have a face lift. However, we do know why he looks so different!
He did not have anything lifted or tucked or implanted. And his mouth has always looked that weird.
Our over-50 actor looks different because of his SKIN. He finally got rid of the acne scars and pockmarks that were part of his rough, trademarked look.
He has always been self-conscious about it. He had a combination of laser skin resurfacing and fillers. No Botox, though. He can still emote.
His face looks smoother and more even. That’s why he looks so different. No knives. Just lasers and needles.

[Optional] Do you think he looks good?
It’s Ray Liotta!
Actor Ray Liotta – best known for films like Goodfellas and Field of Dreams – has always had a distinctive look. Dark hair, blue eyes, an oddly tight little smile… and craggy, pock-marked skin.
He was consistently Photoshopped in still photos (left) to smooth out the bumps, but the flaws were always apparent on film and on the red carpet.
His skin was so bad that a cosmetics company even used his face for a before-and-after ad for their skin treatment. (Note: That company was partly owned by Mike Shouhed of Shahs of Sunset.)
Liotta sued them and won, but the ad highlighted the fact that Liotta’s skin problem was the kind of cosmetic issue most people would want to eliminate.
After years of complaining about his skin, Liotta got some work done. When coupled with a bit of aging and some weight gain, his look today is a bit different.
Here he is at the 2016 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards with his daughter, Karsen.
Liotta’s face is definitely smoother. That’s fillers and resurfacing. However, he still has bags under his eyes, so he didn’t have an eyelift. He’s also fairly jowly, so there’s been no lower face lift. He still has those “11” lines between his eyes, so Botox is unlikely.
Liotta popped up again this week on British talk show, Good Morning Britain, and people freaked out because they thought he looked so different.
We think that the work looks pretty good. Until he smiles that tight little Ray Liotta smile. Then it gets weird. But, then again, Liotta has always had that menacing kind of look about him. That’s one of the things that makes him so creepy/interesting in all of his roles. When Ray Liotta is on screen, he owns the scene. As long as he maintains that quality, he’s going to work forever.
Congratulations to everyone who got this one right. Mere1012 was first! Kudos to those of you who caught the “fella” clue (for Goodfellas)!
