With Scarlett Johansson planning to sue US Weekly for its just-released story speculating that she had a nose job, Make Me Heal thought it noteworthy to revisit its analysis of Scarlett’s nose that it published in a article on October 19 of this year on the Makemeheal.com website (read the full article on Scarlett Johansson’s Nose Job Rumor). The determination made by Make Me Heal has always been that Johansson’s nose is completely natural and plastic surgery-free.
Looking at photos of Scarlett from her teenage years to present, one commonality is a rather wide bridge complete with a bulbous tip. In her teen years, Scarlett’s nose seemed to overpower her face and appear wide in proportion to her face. As Scarlett grew older, her nose appeared to become more refined, the bridge slimmer, and the tip less bulbous. In her recent appearances, Scarlett’s nose has appeared narrower than before and the bridge more refined. This is the basis for the rumor supporting Johansson having gotten a nose job to refine and slim down the bridge.
But the photos are misleading, as a closer look at them shows that Scarlett’s nostrils remained the same and that her bulbous tip is still present, although it is well disguised by artful use of makeup. In some photos, the bridge is slim and in others the bridge is just as wide as before. The optical illusion at hand is both the result of Scarlett simply growing into her new nose as the shape of her face changes, with her nose seeming big when she is a teen and then appearing smaller as an adult. Additionally, Scarlett’s makeup artists have simply concealed some of the “bulbousity” of her tip and the wideness of the bridge, making her nose appear surgically enhanced.
For the above reasons, Scarlett Johansson’s nose is completely natural and she does not appear to have undergone any rhinoplasty procedure.

“From what I can tell from looking at photos of Ms. Johansson, it doesn’t look as if she has had a rhinoplasty,” says Nassif.
“Overall, her nose looks the same. Make-up applied specifically to certain places on the nose may make it look smaller. Her bridge appears mildly wide, her tip has a “cute” bulbousity to it, and her nostrils flare slightly appear to be the same as per when she was younger (minimal make up on photo) to now. Overall, her nose looks “cute” on her face.”
“I have always been straightforward with the press regarding my body image and I am very concerned that my fans (and perhaps even my employers) will feel misled. Thus, I feel compelled to take immediate legal action against US Weekly,” says Johansson.
Johansson’s representative discredited the sources and photos used by US Weekly, claiming the photos were taken years apart in different lighting and makeup, which led to the false impression of a nose job.
In a statement made to OK! Magazine, the rep says “US Weekly’s cover story regarding Scarlett Johansson and its clear implication that she has had plastic or cosmetic surgery on her nose is an outrageous and defamatory fabrication lacking any conceivable basis or proof, despite vehement denials by Ms. Johansson prior to publication.”
Interestingly, Johansson is a supporter of plastic surgery and has gone on record before to say that she would have plastic surgery when the aging process kicks in.
“Oh I definitely believe in plastic surgery. I don’t want to be an old hag, there’s no fun in that,” says Johansson.
