  • Gabrielle Union isn’t the most famous actress around, but she is one of the most recognizable black actresses working in Hollywood today. As she moves up the ladder of success, Make Me Heal suspects she may have had a rhinoplasty to help her fit in.

    Gabrielle Union, Nose Job, Rhinoplasty

    35-year old Gabrielle has always looked younger than her age; portraying a high-school sophomore in the film 10 Things I hate About You, back in 1999 when she was actually 26-years old. Since then, Gabrielle’s nose has looked a little different.

    Comparing pictures, Gabrielle’s nose looks like it has been narrowed very slightly. Her bridge looks gently more defined and the tip slightly less round. The rhinoplasty is so subtle, it is very difficult to detect.

    In later pictures, Gabrielle’s face looks slimmer, so the appearance of a subtle nose job could be the result of the same nose on a slimmer face. Like many actresses, Gabrielle looks like she has lost a few pounds since she began her career. Also, different make-up and lighting can make a big difference in helping an actress’ nose look slimmer, so the extreme subtlety in her nose could be a result of cleverly applied make-up and flattering lighting as opposed to actual surgery.

    Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, California agrees that Gabrielle had a nose job, telling Make Me Heal, “It does appear from the photos that Gabrielle Union might have had a rhinoplasty. From the frontal view, Gabrielle Union’s tip looks a little smaller and defined, while her bridge looks a little narrower. However, the [sides] ala appears unaltered. If she did have rhinoplasty, her surgeon did a nice conservative and subtle job.”

    Gabrielle’s recent appearance on the TV show Ugly Betty is sure to help forward her belief that “Hollywood needs to recognize all shades of African American beauty.” On the show, Gabrielle played sister to Vanessa Williams (another African-American actress who Make Me Heal suspects also had a nose job), the show’s arch villainess. See Make Me Heal’s related story on Vanessa William’s Plastic Surgery.

    Look for Gabrielle’s new nose later this summer in the Eddie Murphy film Meet Dave.

    Make Me Heal enjoys the strong women Gabrielle often portrays and likes the way her nose fits her face, so we’re glad to see that the surgeon was subtle and didn’t make the beauty unrecognizable.

      I don’t think she’s had nose surgery. She’s put some make up to slim her nose down.

      I definitely think Gabrielle Union had a nose job. Did anyone see her on the BET awards show?

    3. Cher on July 16, 2008 4:55 am

      Forget her nose…did she plump up her upper lip? I remember it used to be paper thin.

      Gabrielle definetly did NOT have a nose job. The pictures are taken from complete different angles. In the first picture her nose looks smaller in the second picture her nose looks flattened out. WHY WOULD SHE FLATTEN HER NOSE OUT? It’s obviously the angle of the picture. Show me a picture where her head is the same angle and then maybe we could talk. Otherwise, this is pure crap.

      It looks to me like she just lost a little weight. Losing and gaining weight can make your nose look different.

      Gabrielle Union is just as beautiful nose job or not. She has amazing lips too…just like most African-American women do.

    7. chloee on September 24, 2008 8:57 pm

      she doesn’t has a nose job, she’s wearing a hollywood makeup secret to wear her nose smaller

      Gabrielle Union’s nose is her own, it is the result of an excellent makeup artist. I too am a makeup artist so, I know the method of contouring a nose, or cheekbones.

    9. Maggie on October 12, 2008 7:03 pm

      It’s pretty obvious that Gabrielle did NOT have a nose job. It looks exactly the same if you take into account that the lighting on all the pictures is different. It seems to me that this site thinks EVERYONE has had a nose job. Even if the difference is sooooo slight that it could easily be a result of lighting or makeup, this site will still swear that it’s a nose job.

      its pretty obvious that she did have a nose job. can’t any of these celebreties be real anymore? its a shame.

    11. JANEBLAZZE on January 27, 2009 10:58 am

      no she had a nose job but who cares she didn’t take it too far… the top lip is plumped and she got a chin implant

    12. Kensome on February 15, 2009 5:59 pm

      She defintely had a nose job

    13. mo on February 16, 2009 10:30 pm

      Gabrielle Union definitely did not get a nose job! All she did was contour her nose to create the illusion of a more narrow nose. I contour my nose, and in certain pictures, my nose looks more narrow depending on how much I contour. If you look at her nostrils, you can see that the bottom of her nose is the same size. Look past the contouring, and you can see that her nose is still wide. Make up does WONDERS!!! Thank god for make up!!!

    14. Lissy on February 18, 2009 7:14 am

      I agree, it doesn’t look like a nose job to me… i worked in fashion for a little while and it just seems like contouring and some weight loss. Her entire face looks slimmer to me.

    15. chris devine on April 7, 2009 4:47 pm

      I think she has been sniffing alot of coke or something because her face has lost loads of weight.

    16. Angela on April 27, 2009 7:08 pm

      Looks the same to me.

    17. Natalia on July 8, 2009 11:32 am

      she didn’t have a nose job. it’s called contouring, basically using makeup to shape your nose.

    18. Denia on July 21, 2009 10:01 am

      I can tell that is make-up. She used it to shape her nose. The last couple of comments are correct. You have to basiclly look through the two darker lines along the sides of her nose to see it is the same nose.

    19. Ellen on September 23, 2009 5:36 am

      Looks like Gabrielle and her peeps have been here several times to post under different names to say that she didn’t get a nose job and that it’s just makeup. I don’t know if she did or she didn’t but I did work on a movie with her and she was an elitist jerk. That much you don’t need to look at a picture for.

    20. lola on September 28, 2009 12:41 pm

      Yeah um, it’s PRETTY OBVIOUS that her nose is contoured with makeup you incompetent morons.

    21. EAI on December 3, 2009 8:10 pm

      Are you all blind? Her nose is different and her upper lip is bigger. Its not make up, its not lighting….its different. No doubt about that so stop saying otherwise.

    22. Clark on September 12, 2010 2:16 am

      Looks to me like her nose is contoured. It’s a common makeup technique and it this case it was used to slim the nose.

    23. Tee on January 4, 2011 8:54 pm

      I don’ think she had a nose job. I agree with others. It’s contouring with a dark makeup line on the edges of the nose, to narrow it. If you look closely at both photos, you will see this is so.

    24. jay on February 15, 2011 1:00 pm

      definitely the effects of lighting and make up. ITS OBVIOUS.

    25. Rita on February 19, 2011 5:41 pm

      Clearly it’s not a nose job but contouring… a makeup trick (dark shadow applied to the bridges of the nose and a highlighter applied straight down the center of nose which results in an illusion, hence why she looks like she has had surgery). All celebrities get this done; aka cheap plastic “surgery.”

    26. MMado on September 21, 2011 1:49 am

      Its make up, you can even see the make up lines. I even do this trick and I’m not a celeb.
