Maybe I’m just covering this non-story because I wanted to look at more pretty pictures of Jude Law. Jude looked incredible at last week’s UK premiere of Anna Karenina, and then he continued to look awesome when he was in Toronto last weekend (also for AK). As I briefly discussed in the UK premiere post, I didn’t know what exactly Jude has been doing to look so flat-out awesome these days. Perhaps it’s a new rug (doubtful), perhaps it’s good genes (sure), or perhaps it’s a hair transplant system that works? Ding ding ding! No!! Of course not. Not that it matters, but I was examining these photos, and I think it might be that Jude has just grown out his hair and done a jaunty comb-down. That’s basically what Radar is saying too, shockingly enough:
Don’t believe recent reports that British actor Jude Law has undergone a hair transplant, the follically challenged star is still au natural, an expert tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
The 39-year-old Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows star was recently pictured with what appeared to be a fuller head of hair – prompting speculation that he could have undergone treatment for his thinning thatch.
However, leading Hollywood hair transplant expert, Dr. Sean Behnam, tells RadarOnline.com that despite the appearance of thicker hair, Jude’s hairline is an unnatural shape and hasn’t been tampered with. But in two years time, if it continues to go untreated, his ‘island’ will disappear!
“I continually get asked by my patients if Jude Law has ever had a hair transplant,” Dr. Behnam reveals. “But, by looking at recent pictures, you can see he hasn’t had one just yet. You can tell his hairline is at an unnatural state; if he was to receive treatment his hairline would be more rounded. My guess is that it’s the angle in which the pictures were taken that gives the appearance he has more hair; he’s got Grade 3 hair loss so it’s still very thin.”
“In my opinion, Jude should definitely consider having a hair transplant now though; it will make him look just as handsome as he was when he was younger. Two years from now, the ‘island’ that you see on the top of his head will completely disappear. If he got the procedure done, it would also likely benefit his career. I’m convinced he would get more leading roles if he fixed this problem. Jude has absolutely nothing to be ashamed of – 80% percent of people I treat for hair loss are in the acting profession. I’d gladly fix Jude’s hair if he wanted a hair transplant,” Dr. Behnam said.
Jude Law showed off his longer locks last week at the Toronto Film Festival promoting his new movie Anna Karenina – an adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s 1877 novel – also starring Keira Knightley. Anna Karenina hits theaters on November 16.
*looks through more photos*
Hm. I need to go to the Gossip Laboratory and crunch some data. In some photos… I would believe that Jude does have some kind of superior hair transplant system working. But in others, maybe he just grew out his existing, natural hair. I don’t know. I’m pretty sure it’s not a rug. And I’m grateful for that too – it would be a shame to see Jude go Full Travolta.
