Is Bradley Cooper’s million dollar face the result of plastic surgery? He was the third-highest paid actor in 2014, right after Robert Downey, Jr. and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Cooper is known as much for his boyish good looks as for his acting talent, even though he turned 40 in January 2015. Is plastic surgery the secret to his handsome, youthful appearance?
NOT THE FIRST TIME
Bradley Cooper admitted in a 2013 interview that he had plastic surgery as a teen, but not to change the way he looked. When he was 15, he had corrective surgery on several cuts and gashes on his face. He injured himself when he accidentally walked into a glass lamp, which shattered. How lucky for the rest of us that the surgery left him whole and handsome!
JAW AND CHEEKBONES
From pictures of Bradley Cooper from high school and early in his career, it’s clear that his strong jaw and cheekbones have been there since the beginning. They show little sign of being enhanced through plastic surgery.
EYE LIFT & FILLER INJECTIONS
One of Bradley Cooper’s most distinguishing features is his baby blue eyes. Rumors have swirled about him wearing color contacts to make them look bluer. Some of his movies seem to have used computer graphics to make them bluer on screen. It’s no surprise, then, that Cooper’s eyes would be the features he wants to keep looking their best. Comparing pictures of Cooper from 2010-2011 to pictures from late 2014-2015 makes it clear that something happened to the cute wrinkles at the corners of his eyes. While it doesn’t look dramatic enough in his brows to have been a full eye lift, Botox or collagen fill around the corners of his eyes to smooth wrinkles is likely.
It’s no secret that Bradley Cooper has a high hairline. What does seem to be a secret is how the 40 year old star keeps his forehead smooth and wrinkle-free. The lack of any lines on his forehead seems to suggest that he’s undergone Botox procedures to smooth wrinkles or, at the very least, undergone a chemical peel to remove the top layers of age-damaged skin to leave him so smooth.
