She's had a nose job--take a look at her in "Satisfaction". Her face has been sculpted.

R98 watching it too on AMC now. She was luminous back then. She really had that "it" quality that made her a star.
Her sexy rom-com days peaked with "My Best Friend's Wedding."
But she made millions upon millions and has three kids and a husband and hates the paps and publicity. In this days of celebs tweeting their whole lives on Twitter, it's almost refreshing to see someone who wants to keep their private lives locked down and out of the spotlight.
(ahem Jen Garner, Jessica Alba, Nic Richie and others who parade their kids out to the paps for profit).
I think she's one of the last true "movie stars." She did many a horrible thing in her young days but TMZ and the web weren't around to document her every move. She was very lucky. I'm sure she knows it.
