The Oklahoma-born Brad Pitt went to Hollywood in the 1980s to pursue his dreams of stardom and managed to break through with a wonderful supporting role in 1991’s “Thelma and Louise”. From there, his career skyrocketed as he quickly progressed to an A-level superstar. Today, Pitt can choose his roles and create his own thanks to his production company.
Of course, Pitt’s stunning good looks have contributed to his success as much as his acting skills. So, it’s little wonder that Brad Pitt plastic surgery rumors have abounded during his career. The rumors escalated after his separation and divorce from actress Angelina Jolie became public in early 2017. The reasoning is that Pitt may feel devastated from the breakup of his marriage and is out to soothe the pain by keeping himself looking as youthful as possible.
Despite the rumors, Brad Pitt has never stated that he’s undergone plastic surgery, so all the rumors have yet to be officially verified.
Ears: The rumors of Brad Pitt plastic surgery ears have been around for a long time. For men, the ears are one of the most common areas for plastic surgery which is generally to tuck them closer to the hairline. It does appear based on photographs from 1990s to today that at some point Pitt had an ear tuck. It’s hardly the type of plastic surgery that gets lots of notice, especially when Pitt often wore his hair long and covered his ears.
Botox, Peels, and Facelift: There does seem to be some recent evidence that Pitt has undergone some facial treatments, especially in terms of the lessening of wrinkles, the more youthful appearance, and a tightening of the jawline. While clever makeup and working out can bring about a more youthful appearance, it is difficult for men in their 50s to sport a tight jawline no matter how hard they workout or diet. Therefore, it does appear that Pitt has at least had Botox injections and perhaps a facelift that has taken years off his appearance.
While there has been nothing official from Pitt himself, one aspect that has been overlooked is that for years before the divorce, Pitt often sported a scruffy beard and was not in peak physical condition. Cleaning up and getting into better shape may have contributed considerably to his new look in recent months.
Did Brad Pitt Have Plastic Surgery?
Apart from the ears where there is photographic evidence, the answer is still up in the air. While most of the changes seen to Brad Pitt may be attributed to makeup, a new workout regimen, proper diet, and generally cleaning himself up for public appearances, the sharper jawline and more taught face may be indications that he has undergone more than just chemical peels and Botox.
For actors, aging gracefully like Harrison Ford for example is considered preferable to having plastic surgery performed. Still, until confirmed the Brad Pitt plastic surgery rumors will have to remain rumors until there is more compelling evidence that it took place.
