Here's Joanie: Plastic surgery addict Joan Rivers' multiple cosmetic procedures have left her looking a lot like Batman's adversary The Joker

But it was her strange appearance which garned most the attention, as her wide mouth and surprised eyes reminded onlookers of the character from the famous films, which was played most recently by tragic star Heath Ledger, who died earlier this year.
