How Did Simon Cowell’s Face Get That Way?
With the return of Britain’s Got Talent to TV, the judge Simon Cowell’s botox procedures have gotten a lot of attention.
People couldn’t help but notice how much he had changed when he appeared on the show with judges David Walliams, Amanda Holden, and Alesha Dixon.
Soon after the talent show was shown on TV, his worried fans started tweeting about how different his face looks.
People who don’t like Simon Cowell said on Twitter, “He doesn’t even look like Simon Cowell anymore. He looks different, but I can’t put my finger on it. Has he had any work done?”
One Twitter user said, “I just saw Simon on TV for the first time in 15 years. I had the scariest moment of my life. I’m looking for news about bears attacking people in the face, but I haven’t found any yet.
Simon Cowell Hiding Before and After Photos of Eye and Face Changes
Simon Cowell, who runs talent shows, has a completely different face now. He is thin and has full cheeks and a smooth forehead.
When people first saw Cowell’s droopy eyelids, many of them said that he looked like he had botox gone wrong.
When you look at his before and after pictures, you can see that the TV host’s face was much wider when he first got into show business, but now he has a sharply chiseled jawline and doesn’t look like the same person.
A little over three years ago, the judge on X Factor decided to change his unhealthy way of life and became a vegan.
Fans were shocked to see how the star had changed when, after years of putting on weight, he came out with a slimmer body and a tighter face.
The Sun said that the TV host said that his overly filled-in face made his son Eric laugh so hard that he was “in hysterics.”
He even went on to say that he could have done too much to stay young forever.
Update on Simon Cowell’s plastic surgery
Simon Cowell told pagesix.com that he stopped getting Botox and fillers because they made him look “like something out of a horror movie.”
“There was a time when I might have gone a little too far,” he said. “I saw a picture of myself from “before” the other day and didn’t recognize it at first.”
He has had many surgeries and treatments over the years, like a facelift in 2018, a long list of facials, a vegan diet, and veneers on his teeth after a scary e-bike accident in 2020.
Cowell told The Sun that when it comes to his skin care routine, he sticks to the basics and works on improving his diet and drinking more water.
He said, “The only good thing about getting older is that you gain a lot of experience and realize that life is not just about the good things you did, but also the bad.”
What is his name?
Simon Cowell was born in the city of London, England, on October 7, 1959. Cowell first worked at EMI Music Publishing in the mailroom. He worked in the music business as a record producer, talent scout, and consultant before making the hit TV shows Pop Idol in the UK and American Idol in the US. During his nine years as a judge on American Idol, Cowell was known for his cutting remarks. In 2011, he became a judge on The X Factor. In 2015, he became a judge on America’s Got Talent.
“American Idol” and “Pop Idol”
In 2001, Cowell and Simon Fuller worked together to make a show in which the people of Britain chose the next big music star. Pop Idol started in the U.K., and the winner was promised a record deal with BMG. With Cowell as a judge, who is known for making contestants cry, the show was an instant hit. More than 10,000 people who wanted to be stars came to try out for the show.
American Idol, the American version, started in 2002 with Cowell, singer Paula Abdul, and producer Randy Jackson as judges. The show got a record number of viewers for Fox and gave rise to pop stars like Kelly Clarkson (2002), Ruben Studdard (2003), Fantasia Barrino (2004), Jennifer Hudson (2004), Carrie Underwood (2005), Taylor Hicks (2006), Jordin Sparks (2007), and David Cook (2008).
Cowell became well-known for being interested in both music and TV. In 2002, he started another business called SYCOtv. The TV shows American Inventor, America’s Got Talent, and The X Factor were all made by the same company. Many of the artists on Cowell’s shows, like Leona Lewis and Il Divo, had records made by the group.
In 2011, Cowell helped bring his British hit show The X Factor to America. The winner of the show would get a $5 million recording contract. Cowell even quit being a judge on American Idol so he could be right in the middle of The X Factor auditions. People who watched TV loved this competition, which did well in the ratings. Cowell’s original judges were the famous music executive L.A. Reid, the singer and former American Idol judge Paula Abdul, and the famous Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger.
The second season of The X Factor started in September 2012, with a few changes to the cast. Britney Spears, a pop star, and Demi Lovato, an actress and singer, joined the show as judges. They took the place of Abdul and Scherzinger. For the third season, Reid and Spears were replaced by Kelly Rowland and Paulina Rubio. After co-hosting the show with Khloe Kardashian for the second season, Mario Lopez took over as the main host.
Fox did not pick up the show for a fourth season after Cowell said he would be focusing on judging the British show.
“America Has Talent”
Since the show’s first season in 2006, Cowell has been the show’s executive producer. In October 2015, it was announced that he would be joining Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Mel B as judges for season 11 of the popular show, replacing Howard Stern.

By 2013, the famous TV host was seeing Lauren Silverman, a New York socialite who was married to one of Cowell’s friends at the time. When their affair led to Silverman getting pregnant, her husband asked for a divorce. Cowell became a dad on February 14, 2014, when his son Eric was born.
Even though he had said before that he would never have kids, Cowell had changed his mind by the time his own son was born. He told the Daily Star, “Eric is just amazing and so funny.” “Becoming a father is the best thing that has ever happened to me.”
In 2019, Cowell said that he had become a vegan as part of an effort to live a healthier life.
Early life and work
Simon Phillip Cowell was born in London, England, on October 7, 1959. His father, Eric Philip Cowell, was a music executive and a real estate agent. His mother, Julie Brett, used to dance ballet and was a member of high society.
Cowell went to school at Dover College, but quit when he was 16 years old. He had a hard time keeping a job and messed up several interviews set up by his father. Finally, he got a job in the mailroom at EMI Music Publishing, which was his father’s company. Then, in 1979, Cowell got a job as an assistant to an A&R executive at EMI. From there, he went on to become a talent scout.
In the early 1980s, Cowell left EMI to start E&S Music with his former boss at EMI, Ellis Rich. Several hits were made by the company, but Cowell left on good terms a few years later. In 1985, he and a partner started an independent record label called Fanfare Records. The label was successful for a short time, but it went out of business in 1989. Cowell had to move back in with his family because he was out of money.
Cowell didn’t let that stop him. Later that same year, he became a consultant for BMG Records. He moved back into his own place and moved up the corporate ladder at BMG over time. He was able to get a number of successful artists to sign with the company. These artists went on to sell more than 150 million records and 70 top-charting singles in the U.K. and the U.S.
