Robert Redford’s pedestal to preach from called into question
Born in the 1930s, Robert Redford is known for being a Hollywood heartthrob. His career is long and illustrious and he has seemingly aged well. He even speaks out against the use of plastic surgery, touting it as a poor choice for people to go in their senior years. He claims adamantly that he for one will age with grace and dignity. While it is a noble cause and for the most part it would seem he has kept that promise, there is still a larger belief that he has had at least one cosmetic procedure done.
The big question for Robert Redford; plastic surgery or great genetics?
The most obvious answer is a bit of both. Overall, he has been aging like a fine wine, but even a good vintage needs a little help setting up before it ages. His long years under the Californian sun have paid their toll on his skin and he has had some subtle but very obvious treatments when view by the professional eye. The smoothness in some areas is not natural for his age and many suggest Botox, facelift or a touch of fillers. There is also talk of chemical or laser treatments at times.
The biggest point where Redford has had some actual plastic surgery though is his eyes. There has been work done to reduce the sagging appearance of the lids. A lifetime of squinting and natural aging can lead to baggy and droopy eyelids that actually affect sight to some extent. In examining his photos over the years, it is evident to trace the subtle backwards stepping of time around his eyes. There is also the issue of moles going missing as well.
Why is plastic surgery such a big deal for the actor?
His open protesting and campaigning against the use of plastic surgery in Hollywood is made hypocritical without honesty. People would credit him more in his endeavors if he admitted that he had undergone some plastic surgery procedures. People love to hear a good story about something going awry and the struggle to recover from it. Or the personal feelings of going through something they ended up regretting. It’s the fact that he denies having had any procedures that takes away from his potential influence other stars.
