Joan Van Ark's Face --

That's 'Knot' Right

12/4/2007 1:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Former "Knots Landing" star Joan Van Ark is living proof that you should never schedule a chemical peel moments before a red carpet event!

Joan Van Ark
The 64-year-old, with tattoo-ish Liza brows and Sharpie eyeliner, was out at a theater event in L.A. on Saturday.

Her new look is in stark contrast to her CBS publicity photo (inset) from a few years ago. Damn!

Lady, you are 64 years pld. Not 45. You are never gonna be 45 again. You will never look 45 again. Instead of looking younger and better, you look like a freak. A freak of nature. A hideous creature people run from in horror. Are you that terrified of growing old? You will trade your dignity and natural wrinkles for this? You need help. You are in dire need of a shrink. I am baffled as to why people do this!

It looks like she has had a Obagi Blue Peel when you get the chemical peel done it makes you look like a smurf it gets really blue on the areas that your face are in need of some help. They do wipe if off after but there are some blue areas for at least a week. Then you just start peeling like crazy.

Joan Van Ark was actually quite the beauty in the late 1970s and then very attractive in the 1980s.

She and the rest of the cast of mainly middle-aged men and women on "Knots Landing" -

Alex Baldwin, Michelle Phillips, Lisa Hartman, Michael York, Nicolette Sheridan, Constance McCashin, William Devane, Julie Harris, Kevin Dobson, Michele Lee, Constance McCashin and Donna Mills were fantastic actors.

The show had more seasons (although less episodes than "Dallas") and ran for 14 years. It outlasted trash like Dallas, Dynasty, Falcon Crest, and the Colbys, and beat the two critics' darlings in ratings and seasons renewals -"Hill Street Blues," and LA Law."

It was the underdog of American television and the critics finally came around. Joan Van Ark was a fantastic actress. The 1980s were flashy and trashy when it came to pop culture (think Madonna, Michael Jackson, hip-hop music, Whitney Houston, Micahel Douglas, Arnold Schwarsenegger, Julia Roberts et al), and real talent often went unacclaimed, even if that talent was popular with th average Joe.

So Joan Van Ark, like many Hollywood actors has gone overboard with the cosmetic surgery.

Maybe its because there are so few roles for women over 35 nowadays other than female district attorneys or frantic single parents of stalked children on Lifetime Network.

Give her a break.

And Joan, please give your face a break.
