Chloe Lattanzi is almost unrecognizable in her latest appearance with famous mom Olivia Newton-John, showing that she’s gone through quite an amazing transformation since first hitting the red carpet as a braces-wearing teen.
Lattanzi, who is Newton-John’s daughter with ex-husband Matt Lattanzi, showed off newly blonde hair and was baring plenty of skin as she was photographed with her mother in Las Vegas.
“The 29-year-old aspiring singer-songwriter looked Vegas-ready in a tiny white skirt paired with a gold-and-white bralette top, while her 66-year-old mother also sparkled for the occasion — albeit more casually in jeans, a white T-shirt and a jacket with silver stripes,” The Huffington Post noted.
To highlight the transformation, Us Weekly posted a picture of Lattanzi showing off braces and a denim jacket in an appearance with her mother on the red carpet in 2001.
Chloe shared some pictures of the Las Vegas festivities with her mother.
Chloe Lattanzi is also getting attention for the release of her music video for the song “You Have to Believe,” which is actually a remix of her mother’s hit song “Magic” from 1980.
Lattanzi has had a difficult path in the entertainment industry. She signed her first record deal when she was still 15, but at the time, Chloe was also struggling with an eating disorder.
Lattanzi said the spotlight contributed to her problem, but doesn’t blame the attention that came with her famous mother.
“Fame totally messes you up,” she said. “I don’t blame my mother for my problems, but I would never want to be famous or raise a child of my own around the cult of celebrity. It ruins lives,” she explained to the outlet.
Lattanzi added, “I had anxiety attacks and needed to find a way of feeling in control of something. Food was the one thing I could be in control of.”
Lattanzi moved into mixing alcohol and prescription drugs, which led to what she called a “semi-psychotic breakdown.” She later went to rehab and said today she is aware of just how difficult it can be as a child star.
“If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it is that you can’t be fragile in this business, or else you end up like Lindsay Lohan. That’s not meant as an insult: I know she — and a lot of celebrities and celebrities’ kids — are struggling with demons and addictions, just like me, and not all of them are brave enough to address them. It’s disturbing that everyone wants to be famous these days. Our culture is sick.”
