American film star Bruce Willis has stated unequivocally that he is not willing to have plastic surgery and will continue on with the face he’s got.
The 54 year old actor says he doesn’t have any sort of skin care routine and he would never consider altering his appearance through cosmetic surgery. In an industry full or pressure to look younger and fitter, Willis is an example to other stars of a man who is comfortable in his own skin.
In an interview with Fox News Willis says “Cosmetic stuff, I am not a fan of it and I know a lot of people who are. It’s a big business and anytime you can make a lot of money of something it is going to stick around.” Willis’ words affirm the belief of many that the cosmetic surgery trend is not merely a momentary flash, but a big business that is here to stay. As more and more Hollywood stars alter their appearance through cosmetic procedures the negative stigma against the plastic surgery industry lessons as it becomes an accepted option for anyone not happy with heir body.
Willis is a welcome exception to the norm of Hollywood as he reveals that it’s not just the women in the movie industry who think about cosmetic procedures: “I don’t plan on cutting myself up, you would be surprised, there are a lot of male actors that think about it as much as women do. I don’t think about it very often. I don’t really care.” This exhibition of positive body image is an encouragement to advocates for teenagers who are worried about the influence Hollywood and the media are having on the self image of young people today.
Though Willis isn’t willing to go under the knife to look good, he isn’t ready to become a couch potato and let his looks go altogether. A fan of staying in great physical shape, the actor who is married to a thirty year old model states, “I’m surprised when I’m reminded of my age. Still feel like I’m about twenty four years old. I could whoop a lot of guys assess if I have to.” Willis is an old fashioned Hollywood tough guy determined to keep his physique and movie star good looks the old fashioned way.
