Aspiring actor Nicholas Ryan, 32, spent over $5,000 in an attempt to look like Ryan Gosling. Effing LOL, am I right? Looking on the bright side, he's only spent 5 Gs, but still, that's a lot of money to spend to look absolutely nothing like Ryan Gosling. Nicholas says he is happy with the results and goes on to add this little nugget of delusion, "Ryan Gosling does well with the ladies, hopefully so can I." Oh Nicholas, I just can't with you. I wish you well. Especially when you wake up to reality. I'm guessing those are going to be some rough days.
Remember that show on MTV 'I Want a Famous Face" ? MTV has the best worst shows, am I right? One of my absolute favortie episodes was the one with twins Mike and Matt who wanted to look like Brad Pitt in order to make it big. Both underwent multiple painful procedures in order to look absolutely nothing like Brad Pitt. They seem happy with looking like they went to Keith Urban's hairstylist though. "It will change your personality," Mike said, "The way you act and carry yourself forever. I never knew that I could be as happy as I am right now."I guess I'm happy for them. And I will say that their skin does look much better. So there's that...
Since 1998, 35-year-old Hebert Chavez has had around 17 plastic-surgery procedures to make him look like his childhood idol, Superman. And suddenly all those internet babies lamenting the casting of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor don't look nearly so fanatical. Chavez is happy with the results and has even become sort of a celebrtiy in his country, "I don't have any regrets at all. People come up to me in the street all the time and want their picture taken with me. They are all really excited to see a real-life Superman in the Philippines." I guess he's no more disturbing than the creepy superheroes I see at the Hollywood Boulevard tourist traps. Well, maybe just a little bit more.
