Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t hot anymore and men want to look like Jon Hamm, according to the latest plastic surgery trends. Details has some interesting stats on cosmetic procedures for men, including one unnamed famous actor who changed his “monster nose.”
In faces, as in fashion, what’s hot changes. Square jaws (think Jon Hamm, Michael Fassbender, Daniel Craig) are in, replacing yesterday’s pert-nose-and-dainty-chin combo (Leonardo DiCaprio, Zac Efron, Tobey Maguire). “There’s less of a desire now for a conventionally beautiful white-bread face,” says Dr. Steven Teitelbaum, an associate professor of plastic surgery at UCLA School of Medicine. “People are embracing strong features like ethnic, nontraditional noses.” For example, in lieu of full-on rhinoplasty, many men are balancing their naturally big noses with chin implants (which have recently spiked by 71 percent, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons) or opting to have their noses trimmed back.
“I did a rhinoplasty and a chin implant on a famous actor who had a monster nose and no chin. We left a bit of a bump in the nose, so it still looked like his, just a better version,” says Dr. Darrick Antell, assistant clinical professor of surgery at Columbia University. “No one, including the producer on his next project, noticed he’d had a nose job.”
Who do we think it is? Anyone want to make a guess? Our clues are “monster nose” and “no chin.” Which means that after the surgery he had a chin and a nose with “a bit of a bump left so it still looked like his.” I’m guessing Bradley Cooper, because f-ck it.
Also if you thought there was any chance in hell I was going to mention Jon Hamm in an article and not mention his dong, you’d be wrong.

I’m still reeling from the Oscar nominations; among others, there is the distinct exclusion of Michael Fassbender. Maybe Shame isn’t the Academy’s style—it’s a relentless sex nightmare about one man’s existential emptiness—but word on the street is, Fassbender deserved a mention for his revelatory, uh, performance.
(And, well, you know, people did mention other things about Fassbender, but I still haven’t seen Shame; I am having trouble weighing how much I won’t enjoy the movie against how much I would enjoy looking at Fassbender. Heh, heh.)
Actor John Moraitis recently penned a column for The Guardian, “How I added sex noises to ‘Shame’,” and it is (ahem) eye-opening:
I’m an actor, and when I’m between roles, my bread-and-butter is something called ADR—additional dialogue recording—where I go to a studio and record background conversations for scenes from films in post-production. It’s often a restaurant scene. You stand at the microphone with another actor, watch a video of the sequence, pick two characters at a table in the background and improvise.
Last summer, I was invited to do ADR for Shame. At the time, we knew nothing about the film. My agent said: “It involves sexual sounds. Do you mind?” I said: “No, it’s just a job. It’s fine.”
The sound engineer kept the sexual stuff till the end. There’s a scene where Michael Fassbender’s character goes to a gay club. At the back of some shots, couples were at it. So I stood at the microphone with another guy and we improvised.
I’d honestly love to reprint the entirety of the Guardian piece (it’s short! And possibly NSFW!), but I arrived at a moment where I was blushing too furiously to go on. Let’s just say that I can barely type “penis” without giggling; the idea of “evoking” a “penis sound” makes me totally unable to function.
You guys, I really probably shouldn’t even try to watch Shame at all, huh.

Michael Fassbender, who looks hot in pictures and who I guess was in some X-Men movie, was photographed having sex with a fully naked women up against a window in New York’s The Standard Hotel yesterday. Unfortunately, it wasn’t just some random act of practically public fucking, Michael and his co-star (who I can’t identify, can you?) were filming a scene for his new movie, Shame, which also stars Carey Mulligan. I would be shocked if she’s partaking in a scene like this, though.
For the TOTALLY NSFW (if you work at one of those kinds of places), full-frontal, basically pornographic photos, click through for the gallery… (more…)
