Johnny Depp Stays Young with Plastic Surgery

By on August 27th, 2010 13:04 GMT

At 47, Hollywood A-lister and overall beloved actor Johnny Depp looks almost as fresh-faced as he did when he was 20. Good plastic surgery may have had something to do with this, though it’s subtle interventions the star prefers.

Either that, or he’s a vampire, as several celebrity bloggers and occult specialists have been saying for years. According to Make Me Heal, though, Depp’s good looks are due to certain subtle tweaks he’s had.

One thing that never seems to change about the actor, aside from his talent and undeniable charisma, is his face. Even now as he’s nearing 50, he is still unbelievably fresh-faced.

Good genes must also be playing a part in this – but so does plastic surgery, two leading Miami surgeons believe. For the record, neither has worked on or been acquainted to Mr. Depp.

If the actor has had any work done to his face, it was either minimally intrusive or a procedure that is now considered “normal,” like having veneers put it or getting a chemical face peel.

“It would be difficult to say whether someone had veneers done without seeing them smile. Perhaps that is why he is often photographed with a straight face. Either way, Johnny Depp does not appear to need anything done or to have had anything done,” Dr. Michael Salzhauer says.

“Johnny Depp does not appear to have had any major work performed to his face. There is a possibility of Botox and fillers, but that is about all. His look is natural, and he would not benefit from any additional work at this time,” Dr. Paul S. Nassif, Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, shares for the same media outlet.

As also noted at the beginning of this article, another theory that would explain why Johnny Depp remains so young-looking even at his age is that he’s a vampire.

Let’s ignore the obvious theory for a second, namely that the star simply has good genes and has been taking good care of himself.

Albert Linkway, author of “Nosferatu: The Untold Story of Vampires in Hollywood,” for one, believes Depp is a vampire, just like Greta Garbo and Cary Grant also were. The signs are all there, he says.

“He’s a vampire. Johnny Depp has not aged visibly since he appeared in the TV series 21 Jump Street in 1987. We cannot discount the possibility that Mr. Depp was simply blessed with ‘good genes.’ Nor can we discount the possibility that he has joined the ranks of the undead,” the expert in the occult was saying a few years back, before the release of the book.

Suddenly, Johnny Depp getting plastic surgery probably seems a much likely theory, even if still based on speculation alone. 

*Update [September 8, 2010] – To commenters who took offense in the above story:

- at the time the article was written and posted online, buzz on the blogosphere talked about how incredible Johnny Depp still looked, suggesting he may have had “minor and subtle tweaks” throughout the years.

- two specialists (cited in the article) believed so, a conclusion they reached after studying photos of Depp. They never treated or met Johnny.

- another theory of how come Depp is still incredibly handsome and seems not to age is that he’s a vampire, which is perhaps just as ridiculous as the one he’s had surgery, which is made clear in the article.

- the author’s opinion is clearly stated here: “the star simply has good genes and has been taking good care of himself.”

Thank you for your comments and yes, personally, we too believe Johnny Depp is indeed a gorgeous man.
