The National Enquirer points out that Kevin Costner’s got a fuller head of hair when compared to just six months ago. He also put on a few pounds. They quote an expert who say the aging actor had a hair transplant:
The 52 year-old actor was photographed on Sept. 11, 2006, with a visibly receding hairline, but just six months later – on March 14 – Kevin showed up o the red carpet with a full-looking head of hair. And insiders wonder if he underwent the procedure to keep himself looking young for his 33-year-old pregnant wife.
“In my opinion, there’s definitely a chance,” hair transplant surgeon Dr. Craig Ziering, who hasn’t treated Kevin, told The Enquirer…
“The only thing that woul make this kind of change, in a six-month peroid, would be a hair transplant procedure.

I think he looked much hotter before. I’ve always had a thing for bald guys, and too much hair is unattractive to me. There’s something really sexy about a receding hairline that’s done with style and a bold close cut. Men who are balding are said to have more testosterone, and maybe that’s why I’m into that. Back when I was single my friends would point out a cute guy and I’d be like “You can have him, he’s got too much hair for me.”
TMZ had a feature this weekend, “Fake or Real,” in which they pointed out Matthew McConaughey’s well-done hair transplant. Now that’s a guy with hair I would make an exception for.
Last year the expanding Costner was accused of jerking off in front of a female masseuse while on his 2004 honeymoon at a Scottish resort. Kevin’s wife, Christine Baumgarter, 33, is currently pregnant with the couple’s first child and is due in May. Costner has three teenage children from his last marriage and an 11 year-old son from a previous relationship.
