Some unimpressed fans were confused by her completely wrinkle-free complexion and uneven haircut.

‘What’s up with her hair? It sounds like something a three-year-old would do if they got their hands on a pair of scissors,’ one commented.

She has enough money to afford a decent haircut. I don’t know, I guess I’m not artistic enough to understand.

“Filters, surgery, etc. Don’t pretend she’s aging naturally,” another wrote.

“It doesn’t look like Nicole,” one reviewer added. “She has completely changed her face. Just my opinion.’

Looking younger than her 55th birthday, the Oscar-winning actress and mother of four cut a commanding figure as she posed for the cover of Perfect magazine, which hailed Nicole as “the perfect icon.”

Standing with her fists raised and biceps flexed, she also showed off her perfectly chiseled legs in the shoot, posing in a Diesel micro mini skirt that could well be mistaken for a belt, as well as a close-fitting backless shirt from the same brand. .

Injecting even more funky style into the shoot, Nicole eschewed her signature blonde waves in favor of an orange-red that featured a blunt bob framing her face, while long straight locks hung around her shoulders and down her back.
