It’s been a long time since Ray Liotta earned his credibility for his role as Henry Hill in the mafia movie “Goodfellas”. Sometimes, we forget what this handsome Jersey man looked like.
Now that Ray is in his ’60s, it’s even harder to look back to his prime. The signs of aging, skin wrinkles and receding hairline are almost impossible to ignore.
Recently, the actor has become the subject of plastic surgery following his red carpet appearance. Fans are saying that he overdid his botox and looks unrecognizable.
While Liotta has never addressed these speculations, we want the truth.
Before & After Photos
In order to find out whether Ray Liotta had any procedures, we examined many pictured before and after he became famous. Here’s what we’ve found so far.
Did Ray Liotta Have Facelift?
It cannot be denied that Ray’s face has undergone a transformation over the years. You can easily notice the difference between his facial skin in these photos.
The before image shows Ray with sagging cheeks and an uneven skin tone. The after photo, however, shows a much-tightened and smoother face. While some may argue that he simply lost weight, a facelift is more likely the case.
What do you think?
Has Ray Had Botox Injections?
For his age, Ray doesn’t have prominent face wrinkles and that’s why we think he might be using botox. You can see his bloated cheeks here and he looks very different too.
The puffiness is more noticeable after he gained weight but made it look more natural.
Did He Get Hair Transplant?
It seems that Ray had a receding hairline problem at a relatively young age.
However, he seems to have addressed his hair loss problem early because he now has more hair. This indicates that Ray might have gotten a hair transplant procedure.
What about His Acne Scars?
It’s no secret that Ray had acne scars even when he was a rising star. Despite his handsome looks, he did not have a flawless skin texture, especially around the lower part of his face. The scars, however, added to his appeal as an actor who could do both good and bad roles.
We’re not exactly sure whether he has sought help from a dermatologist, but he certainly found the best way to hide his scars when he sported a beard to cover up. He looks good
Ray Liotta: Then and Now
Let’s take a closer look at his physical transformation over the years.
Ray looking young and handsome
Ray’s high school photo is proof that he’s always been good-looking. That ’70s hairstyle complimented the face shape really well.
Ray in 1978-1981
Liotta joined the daytime soap opera world around this time. With his model face and dreamy eyes, he looked like a prince charming in this pin-up for “Another World.”
We doubt he needed a nose job because he already has a perfect nose.
Ray in 1990
After a decade of working hard in Hollywood, Ray’s career would be defined by Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas.”
He showed his sense of style in this movie and there was no evidence of any work done to his jawline and chin. Everything looks natural to us.
Ray in 1997
Ray seemed to have put on some weight when he starred with Sylvester Stallone in the 1997 “Cop Land.” It’s fair to say that when his face became chubbier.
Ray in 2002
Ray voiced Tommy Vercetti in the popular video game “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.” By this time, he was pushing 50 and the acne problems of his youth seemed to have deepened as you can see from his facial scars.
Apart from the bad skin, aging may have contributed to the sagginess of his face, especially around the mouth area. His lips also looked thinner, thus giving him the unflattering Joker-like smile.
Ray in 2007
At 53 years old, Ray suddenly appeared with a smoother and tighter face on the red carpet. But he wasn’t able to address his hair thinning issues….yet!
Ray in 2012
Does Ray look younger in this photo?
Fans suspect he wore eyeliners to improve his appearance as his eyes look extra sharp. His hair also looks thicker, leading others to presume he had a hair regrowth procedure.
Ray in 2015
At 61 years of age, Ray owned the grey hair and didn’t need to hide it with a color dye. Unfortunately, he had heavy eye bags and could use an eyelift here.
Ray in 2017
While promoting the popular series “Shades of Blue” featuring the beautiful Jennifer Lopez, Ray appeared in an interview with a wrinkle-free face. Gone are the eye bags too.
He most likely used face fillers to plump up his cheeks in an effort to look younger. Can you see how puffy his face looks?
Ray in 2018
Does Ray look like a different person in this photo?
He gained a lot of weight and if he keeps this up, liposuction may be the next option.
Despite the pandemic, it hasn’t stopped the actor from working out at the gym and the result shows on his body.
