Jeremy Piven used cat urine on his head in an attempt to stop balding

Let me preface this story by saying it’s probably not true that Jeremy Piven actually put cat urine on his head. The source is Star Magazine, and while it may be accurate that he’s trying to stave off baldness it’s up to question whether he went to the extreme of applying cat urine to his scalp. Since it’s asswipe Jeremy Piven we’re talking about, I’ll give Star the benefit of the doubt.

Jeremy Piven, 42, revealed his insecurities about going bald (again?) to a friend and told her that he has tried absolutely everything! “He has experimented with all sorts of folklore remedies, like cat urine and bee pollen, as well as all the organic hair restoration formulas,” the source says. “He had literally 30 types of hair vitamins in his bathroom. It looks like a pharmacy in there.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, May 5, 2008]

Star probably figured, “what the hell, it’s Jeremy Piven, he could have done this,” and that’s pretty much my opinion on it too.

It was hard to google to find out more about this supposed cat urine homeopathic balding treatment, because most of the results had to do with balding in house cats. Balding Blog has a Q&A with a doctor about washing your hair in urine – the human type, not the cat type, which somehow sounds less disgusting. The doctor points to a site that claims that heated urine mixed with potato and sulphur powder is a treatment for hair loss. Instead of trying such drastic remedies, a consultation with a medical professional is recommended.

As a woman who finds balding men sexy, I would suggest that if you’re a guy with a decent-shaped head you may as well shave it off or cut it super short. Balding is a sign of virility and men seem to be more worried about it than necessary. In Piven’s case, he probably has some sort of artificial hair coverage going on. Even if he did proudly shave his head there’s no compensating for that obnoxious personality.

Jeremy Piven is shown at the Broadway premiere of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” on 3/8/08, thanks to WENN.

    I saw this on SOUTH PARK. Piven was trying to get high by “cheesing” on cat urine.


  2. Syko says:

    That would be desperation.

    Personally, I love bald men. I can never understand why they worry over it so much.

  3. Bodhi says:

    How do you get a cat to pee in a cup? Or do you just squeeze it over your head?

  4. Celebitchy says:

    Bodhi the logistics of this didn’t even occur to me, that’s so funny!

  5. geronimo says:

    lol bodhi, lovely image, that!

  6. Bodhi says:

    Glad I could provide a laugh! :D The 1st thing I thought of was Piven holding a kitty over his head trying to sweet talk it into wizzing on his head…

  7. Diva says:

    His head would glow under black light!

    Bodhi… LMAO!!!

    My husband is bald(ing) and I love it! Sooooo sexy when he shaves the whole thing!

    He’s doing something alright – it’s easily noticeable that he’s got way more hair now than he did in the 90′s. Just check out a copy of PCU if you don’t believe me.

    I could not agree more with this article, namely on two particular points: 1) Jeremy Piven is an asswipe, and 2) Balding men should let nature take its course and keep their hair short! I love, love, love a close-cropped balding man. I’m all a-twitter just thinking about it! High testosterone levels cause men to go bald…so in theory bald guys are the most manly men of all!

    I’m not sure if the mental image of a cat on a toilet peeing in a cup or Jeremy Piven holding a cat over his head desperately imploring it to pee is funnier! Thanks for the laugh! :lol:

    Jeremy Pivens is a little bit “obsessive” about most things! Plants won’t grow and will wither up and die where cats potty at, so how on earth could something so FOUL POSSIBLY grow hair? No wonder he can’t keep a woman, who could stand being around that smell! :roll:

  11. Rob says:

    Key words: Shape of head! I am losing my hair, and I keep it short but I would NEVER shave it because I dont have a good shape. leave the guy alone, its really devastating going bald, especially in this materialistic, shallow cesspool of a society we have created! I would go to Bosley in a second if it was affordable.

  12. Robin says:

    Jeremy Piven is the hottest Jewish guy alive and the best balding guy this side of Ed Harris…if he has had hair transplants it is probably a bad idea for him to shave his head because of the scarring in the harvest site…wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating matzoh though

    I would take Jeremy anyway he came! He’s gorgeous!
