It has been almost twenty years since Indiana Jones and his crew took on the big screen. With a new movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, hitting theatres this week, Make Me Heal decided to see whether or not any of the old and new cast members had undergone plastic surgery in the meanwhile.
Harrison Ford’s adventuring archaeologist alter-ego Indiana Jones is known for his rugged good looks. Make Me Heal thinks that Harrison has preserved his rugged good looks the natural way although his skin and muscles are starting to loosen, so he might want to consider tightening up for his next movie role. Plastic surgeons, Dr. John Di Saia and Dr. Paul Nassif agree with our assessment saying that he most likely hasn’t had any plastic surgery, but is beginning to look his age and would benefit from a turn at the scalpel. Make Me Heal thinks that if 65-year old Harrison continues to date much younger actress 43-year old Calista Flockhart and her possibly augmented lips, he will continue to look old enough to be her father without some plastic surgery procedures, like a facelift for the jowls along his jawline and crepey neck, a blepharoplasty to remove the pockets of fat under his eyes and the hooding over the top of his eyes, and some Botox, Restylane or Juvederm to iron out some of the tapestry of deep furrows on his forehead, nasolabial folds, and crows feet.
Harrison Ford seems like he subscribes to the old school philosophy of fellow actors Jack Nicholson and Robert De Niro whose acting chops are as youthful as ever, but who insist on aging gracefully and will likely never have plastic surgery. Harrison and the above-named celebrities are iconic actors whose unique, trademark looks could be affected by going under the knife, as if they end up looking different post-surgery despite the results being aesthetically great, this could ruin their careers. This is probably why actors like Harrison are less inclined to want to mess with their career-making faces. But even if Harrison does not want to risk altering his look with an invasive procedure, there are low-downtime laser treatments (i.e. Fraxel, Palomar’s Starluxe, CoolTouch, and Active Fx) that can improve the texture of his skin without putting him at risk of looking different. The same goes for temporary dermal fillers like Botox or Restylane, which will not change Harrison’s look in the bit, but relax some of his wrinkles.
Fans of the original Indiana Jones adventure have been looking forward to seeing actress Karen Allen reprise her role as the feisty Marion Ravenwood. Although Karen hasn’t been seen in much, she remains a legend in her own right. But Make Me Heal suspects that between movies, Allen has had plastic surgery in the form a nose job and plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Nassif agrees, saying Allen’s “pinched nose is indicative of a bad rhinoplasty.” Make Me Heal is looking forward to Allen’s appearance in the film, but does wish she hadn’t messed with her nose as it looked fine before and now looks overdone.
The femme fatale in the new movie will be played by the 39-year old, Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett, who has repeatedly been firm on her anti-plastic surgery stance, saying that she would not undergo plastic surgery.
“I see someone’s face, someone’s body who has had children, and I think they’re the song lines of your experience, and why would you want to eradicate that?”, says Blanchett. As plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn reported at Cate’s Oscar appearance, “She has been blessed with great genes, which have caused the 37 year old actress to age very gracefully.” But don’t be fooled by Cate’s stance on plastic surgery, as she most likely has had some sort of help in looking so good, including laser treatments and peels.
“Her skin is nearly flawless, and may be aided by top-of-the-line skin care products, chemical peels, and lunchtime laser treatments,” says Youn.
Finally, it comes with no surprise that the 21-year old Shia LeBeouf has not gotten any plastic surgery, although it’s quite likely that his current girlfriend, model Lauren Hastings may have gotten a nose job or will be getting a boob job.
Along with the rest of the action adventure movie loving fans, Make Me Heal looks forward to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, hitting theaters this week and spotting old and new members of the cast.none
