Portia De Rossi, who plays self-absorbed Lindsay Bluth on "Arrested Development", is getting quite a bit of attention lately for her looks.

The 40-year old actress hasn't spoken publicly about whether or not she's had work done, but since new episodes of the show have been brought back by Netflix, fans have taken to social media to talk about what appear to be significant changes to her face.

However, photos of De Rossi on the red carpet don't seem to mesh with what we're seeing on the show, so now the question is, did she really have surgery or is it just that she's made up to look that way because that's what Lindsay Bluth would have done? According to Jezebel, it's a possibility:

"Lindsay's plastic surgery is something that's been repeatedly referenced on AD -- it's easy to imagine she'd get work done in the seven years since the show's final Fox season, and It's just the kind of subtle joke [creator] Mitch Hurwitz and co. would let go unmentioned."

A fair point. But a "source" says something else is to blame for her altered appearance.

"She's absolutely not had plastic surgery," the source said. "Her character is clearly wearing a wig, which ended up altering her entire look."

Take a look at the pics of De Rossi below and judge for yourself.
