2. Angelina Jolie
Stunning and massively successful actress and philanthropist Angelina Jolie always was the perfect beauty. But she is on this list for a much braver and different reason than the other celebrities. She never had plastic surgery, but that all changed in 2013. She didn’t have breast augmentation to further her career, but rather because she was diagnosed with having an 87% chance of developing breast cancer (the same cancer that killed her mother).
So the star had a double mastectomy, gaining the love and admiration of the world around, and subsequently underwent reconstructive surgery procedures that included allografts – or transplants. In 2014, she stunned crowds at the Oscars by showing off her reconstructed breasts while dressed in a flowing, silver haute couture dress. SEE ALSO: The 12 hottest Kim Kardashian’s booty shots ever!

She has since become an advocate against overly-expensive gene testings, stating that the $3,000 tests alone are way too expensive for the average person. Not to mention that a double mastectomy in the U.S. starts at $15,000.
