June 2 (UPI) --
"Arrested Development" fans have noticed that Portia de Rossi's self-obsessed character, Lindsay Bluth-Fünke, looks different in episodes of the show's fourth season, currently airing on Netflix.
Buzzfeed put together a side-by-side comparison showing Lindsay seven years ago and Lindsay today.
wondered whether de Rossi's character got some work done as a sly nod to her vanity: "It's just the kind of subtle joke ["Arrested Development" creator ] Mitch Hurwitz and co. would let go unmentioned."
"She's absolutely not had plastic surgery," an E! News source said of de Rossi. "Her character is clearly wearing a wig, which ended up altering her entire look."
The source credited the actress' youthful appearance to "being a vegan for the last five years."
De Rossi told People in April that she had no plastic surgery plans.
"The one thing I don't wanna do is chase what I looked like at 20," she said.
