Did Justin Theroux freak out on some fans after they mentioned his thinning hair?


If you ever want to see a man’s vanity, just say something about their hairline. Even the most IDGAF men worry about losing their hair. I think most women don’t really give a crap though. If a man loses his hair, most of us are like, “You should just shave it. Patrick Stewart is sexy. Bruce Willis is hot.” But men still worry. And when they really obsess about it, then we get stuff like Donald Trump’s sad hair situation.

And we also get whatever is happening to Justin Theroux. I remember back when Justin and Jennifer first got together, there were photos of Justin with his BFF Terry Richardson (yep) and I first noticed Justin’s small bald spot, which he tried to hide with hair dye and comb-back. Since then, Theroux has undergone a makeover (which I believe involves eyebrow waxing, nicer watches and guyliner) and mysteriously, his bald spot has rarely been seen since. But The Enquirer says that Justin is still concerned and that he freaked out recently when approached by some fans.

Justin Theroux always looks meticulously well-groomed, but now he’s obsessing over that post-40 affliction most males finally face – a balding spot in the back and a widow’s peak in the front! Said a friend of the couple: “Jennifer’s told him she couldn’t give a hoot – pointing out that he looks like Daniel Day-Lewis, who’s also got thinning hair, and girls think he’s gorgeous. Justin accepts it, but he can be a bit sensitive about it.”

Said the source: “He was exiting a gym in West Hollywood when two men approached, said they were fans and asked him to pose for a photo – but once it was clicked, one guy handed Justin a card that ID’d him as the manager of a hair restoration clinic, and told him they could beef up his thinning locks. Justin went NUTS, barking: ‘You pretend to want a picture so you can hustle me? Pretty devious, man!’”

The thing is, I’m almost positive that Justin has already been to a hair restoration clinic. He didn’t get anything major, and it’s not like he’s out there, wigleting into the night like John Travolta. But Justin’s small bald spot (circa 2011) was quietly “fixed” at some point. Like Ben Affleck’s hair too. Plugs, I guess?

Here’s a photo of his bald spot in 2011:

    Doesn’t Living Proof have a product for that?

    Ha haha…that’s funny. I think I believe the story. Because I want to.

    • Jessica6 says:

      I believe it, too. I also think he needs to lay off the jet black shoe polish hair dye and opt for a colour less severe. And that “guyliner” makes him look ridiculous. I don’t believe for a second he’s not applying it.

      While I’m at it, his “hipster” look with the tight jeans and boots is looking a tad old on him. But, that’s just my opinion.

      I’m sorry–I laughed HARD. I shouldn’t because my dad’s freaking about his hairline too (he doesn’t have a bald spot, but the corners of his hairline is starting to recede) , but God.

      But I’d be mad if I was him–have all this hair in the front and the sides, and you got a little bald spot right in the back. Just shave it. Seriously. I knew this guy in his sixties who had lost ALL of his hair, except for a two inch long fringe on the sides and back, like a headband.

    The hours he and Aniston must spend talking to each about their hair. And their tans. They are perfectly matched.

  4. Chinoiserie says:

    I like men with bold spots better than those who have no hair at all (unless they only have very little hair and still try to do comb-back). But I feel many think differently.

    But I do not blame him if he got agry if these people were just trying to make him by something by posing as fans.

  5. Kaye says:

    I can’t stand his faux hipster persona, but I have to say I’d be annoyed also if someone pretended to be a fan only to turn around and try to sell me something.

  6. Jac says:

    I’m LOL at his “pretty devious, man” comment. A little surprised he didn’t use the term “uncool”…

  7. kri says:

    LMAO. Anyone who even speaks to Uncle Terry, let alone full-body hugs him, should expect his hair to fall out. and deservedly so.

  8. Talie says:

    Holy crap! I never noticed that spot… I’m more in the camp that I think it’s OK for men to do something with their hair if it thins. Not all guys look good bald or with a shaved head.

  9. Mike says:

    He better stay pretty or his meal ticket will drop him for a younger guy with a better hairline. (kidding)

  10. Jen2 says:

    But it is OK for his fiancé to shade her friend’s tweeking? I am convinced that he was not visiting her at the hairdresser, he was going in for his own appointment.

  11. Sullivan says:

    In certain photos, Thereoux looks like a tiny, hipster Jimmy Kimmel.

  12. TheRealMaya says:

    Jennifer has always only cared about the outer beauty of people. Everytime she is with a man she changes them into ken doll and makes them pretty to look at. From Brad to Vince to John and now Justin – they all had to be polished and perfect looking whenever they were with her.

    That is the reason she ends up being dumped by these men and they move on other women with substance and who loves them for their inner beauty.

    The only reason Justin has lasted for four years (3 official + 1 year if cheating) is because he is not successful and doesn’t have the fame and money the exes had/have in their own field. Plus a Justin seems to be equally vain, narcissistic and fame hungry as Jennifer – so really a match made in vanity heaven.

  13. GIrlyGirl says:

    Justin Theroux has fans?

  14. Greata says:

    WHAAAAAT!!!!!! He’s not completely natural and perfect in every way?

  15. Chris says:

    Anyone familiar with that double portrait of Philip II of Spain and Mary Tudor? ( a link seems to require pages of cryptic symbols)
    Whenever I see it I think of Justin and JA,

  16. Phenix says:

    Thank god he has beautiful eyeballs.

    Everyone’s laughing but it’s not so funny when you start losing your hair. People stare at your scalp and it’s mortifying. As a 29 year old woman going thru this, I have sympathy for men. It’s absolutely horrifying and just because it’s more common in men doesn’t mean it’s any less horrifying.

    At least guys can just shave their heads. Women have to find wigs which are so obvious and are really expensive.

    Losing your hair is the worst.
