After years of playing similar characters, legendary actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro finally appeared in the same film after decades in the business. Although their film Righteous Kill wasn’t a success, it was interesting to see how the legendary actors have aged, with or without plastic surgery.
68-year old Al Pacino has come under the Make Me Heal radar before for his facial plastic surgery. Most likely beginning in the 1990’s, when the former Michael Corleone would have been in his 50’s, the actor began undergoing a series of subtle cosmetic surgeries to reduce the sags and bags that can come with aging.
Pacino looks to have had a browlift (forehead lift), facelift, and potentially a blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), not to mention skin laser treatments and dermal injections such as Botox, Restylane, or Juvederm.
This is evidenced by recent photos showing Pacino’s sunken eyes becoming more refreshed, less sagging around the lower lids, a rather unusually tight neck and jawline without any evidence of sagging that is typical of his age. Moreover, Pacino has a rather tight forehead free of horizontal creases, no nasolabial folds (those are the smile lines that emanate to the corner of the mouth to the edges of the nose) which are improved with a facelift, and his crow’s feet around his eyes appear to have improved over the last decade.
The relatively wrinkle free forehead, mouth and eye areas suggest continuous use of injectables such as Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm, as well as the possibility that Pacino had a laser skin resurfacing procedure using some ablative or non-ablative laser. Finally, it is possible that Al Pacino had a rhinoplasty to lift up his tip as his nose tip appears to be narrower than before. (See Make Me Heal’s original story on Al Pacino’s plastic surgery).
On the other hand, his co-star 65-year old Robert DeNiro’s deep wrinkles seem to be untouched by knife or needle. Not enough the large mole on the right side of his face seems to have been touched.
The lines going both horizontally and vertically across his forehead indicate that DeNiro doesn’t use dermal injectables like the ever popular Botox. The loose skin around his neck and his sagging cheeks indicate that he has likely not had a facelift or injections to keep his skin firm.
Even though Pacino and De Niro finally gave fans a chance to see both legends together in action in their film, Righteous Kill, it seems they would have been better off taking better care of their skin or investing in some good plastic surgery.
