Mickey Rourke enjoyed a life most men dream of in the '80s: gorgeous and rich with a brilliant acting career, working with some of the world's most beautiful women. But as his behavior became more and more erratic, the acting jobs dried up -- and Rourke decided to go back to his first love, boxing. Bad move.
A few hard punches destroyed Rourke's nose and cheekbones, leading to the plastic surgery disaster we see today.
Arguably the greatest James Bond since Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan brought his considerable good looks, charismatic personality and rapier wit to each role he played.

Tom Cruise may have received most of the fanfare for Top Gun, but Val Kilmer easily outshone him in the looks department. Sadly, today Kilmer seems to have taken a page from the Marlon Brando school of hard knocks, letting his acting career slide along with his formerly gorgeous face -- and body.
Remember the volleyball scene in Top Gun? Enough said.
