What the happened to Billy Bob Thornton?!
Billy Bob Thornton: Aging in Reverse?
Billy Bob Thornton has been a recognizable face on the acting scene for years, from movies like the classic Tombstone to more modern flicks like Faster.
However, perhaps the most famous thing he’s ever done was get married to Angelina Jolie. However, many people have begun to wonder if Thornton has begun to follow her habits in getting plastic surgery to hang onto his youth, or to create good looks that some fans argue he never really had.
While he hasn’t come out and made a big deal out of it, and he’s garnered less attention because he’s a steady name rather than a big one, Billy Bob Thornton does look as if he’s had a little help from a plastic surgeon’s skills in keeping himself looking film fit.
Billy Bob Thornton has obviously been spending too much time at the plastic surgeons office and shows the signs of over usage of Botox. While he still has deep wrinkles around his eyes and mouth, his forehead is completely (and bizarrely) smooth and frozen. Billy Bob has also had hair restoration surgery (“hairplugs”) to fill in his once receded hairline. Remember when he was bangin’ Angelina Jolie in the back of limos and we NEVER saw him without a hat on? That is because he was bald. Ten years later? His hair is full, thick and dyed brown?
This makes me so sad!! Billy Bob Thornton is was one of my all time favorite, top 5 actors. Why did I love Billy Bob? Because he was a scrawny, weird, funny, witty, talented actor (that could move all parts of his face in order to express emotion) and could pull chicks like Angelina Jolie. Who is this new Billy Bob that we see now? I have no idea, but I want no part of what that guy is selling…
Billy Bob Thornton’s botox face is amazing, he’s making a movie about Angelina
This side-by-side comparison shot of Billy Bob Thornton illustrates how much his face has changed between a 2006 photoshoot and just one day ago, and it’s slightly mind blowing. Yesterday, Billy Bob attended the press conference for his new directorial project, Jayne Mansfield’s Car at the Berlin International Film Festival. However, I can’t even begin to consider this movie as either a case study or piece of art because Billy Bob’s face is … so weird. Even though his face has been looking ambiguously wonky over the past few years in terms of possible plastic surgery, it’s clear that he’s botoxed and spray tanned to the hilt right now, and it’s freaking me out because he used to have a very backwoods sort of appeal. Now he looks like a Madame Taussads waxwork:
Some of the suspicions are that he’s undergone hair replacement facial fillers, and possibly some Botox to keep his face looking younger and smoother over the years.
However, there hasn’t been a demand that Billy Bob Thornton answer whether or not he’s gotten surgery and it seems that, by and large, the public doesn’t register much of a blip on the radar.
However, an opinion stated as us says that if Billy Bob Thornton were to shave off his soul patch that might do just as much good as a cosmetic procedure.
Some people might ask why Thornton gets a pass.
Is it because of his second rate celebrity status? Or is it perhaps because people expect someone with his colorful history to have undergone a bit of cosmetic touch up between crazy relationships and over the top times off the set?
Or is it because the public only demands that those constantly in the spotlight lie to us about what they’ve had done and when so that the myth of natural perfection remains?
