Rhinoplasty Is Stupid

Updated on October 20, 2008

I am continually astounded by how much money people spend on having something as stupid as rhinoplasty done. A face can be perfectly beautiful with a less-than-perfect nose, and a slightly unusual shape can add depth and character that might not have been noticeable otherwise. Personally, I prefer my men to look natural -- and if that means his nose is going to have a slight bend, so be it! Honestly, take a look at Adrien Brody over there to the right. The man is absolutely gorgeous, and a bit of crookedness in the nose is not going to change that. Besides, can you imagine if he had a nose job and everything went all perfect? How utterly, utterly boring.

Uma Thurman has an unusual nose as well -- do you think a man would turn her down if she offered to take him home with her? I think not. She's beautiful in her own way, and that particular way just happens to appeal to men everywhere. Remember her in Dangerous Liasons? I do. I remember thinking she was stunning, and I never even realized that her nose was a bit unusual until some twattish snarky reporter wrote about it -- beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and I think you'd have a hard time finding anyone who thought Uma was anything less than beautiful.

Gerard Depardieu isn't really my type (although he does look pretty sexy in this photo here) but the man is lusted after by women everywhere. Do you think Frenchwomen look down at him because of that nose? I don't think so. I think they don't even notice it -- which is precisely the case with most people with that sex appeal quality he seems to have. Anyone can be sexy, you don't need a perfect nose to have women chasing you about!

Granted, if you've broken your nose and want to reset it to its original shape, no one is going to begrudge you that. But one only need to look at Owen Wilson to know that even a broken nose can't get in the way of sex appeal!

And what about Babs? I really admire Barbra Streisand for keeping her nose all these years, despite the snarking she's had to endure from the media. That nose might not work on anyone else, but it definitely works on her, and I think she's quite lovely -- her features work on her, and that's actually the case with most people, whether they realize it or not. Not only has her nose not hindered her career, it hasn't gotten in the way of her love life, either. I mean, hello? James Brolin? The hottie from Hotel? If you can land a man like that, you are not lacking in sex appeal. Go, Babs!

      watched Larry King 2010 with her and 100% did she have a nose job. Noses get bigger with age - NOT smaller. She does look better with her new nose....

      I suppose different strokes for different folks.its what make the individuals comfortable.May be their self esteem needs a boost and they think the nose job will do it. it would be nice to find out how they felt before and after

      I have so many friends that had their nose done and I still not understand why they did it. Most of them looked beautiful before the nose job and to be fear some of them ended up worst looking after it.

      I think that sex appeal has nothing to do with looks. In fact most of the male celebrities I like are not conventionally handsome. Gerard Depardieu, Jean Reno, Willem Dafoe, are some examples.

      Isabella! I agree with you 100%. As I also said in one of my hubs from a couple of days ago that today beauty and good looks is valued over health. Honestly how stupid just at the drop of a hat to go and pick a new nose. I really like Gerard Depardieu and as far as I'm concerned the nose doen not make him a less of an actor it's just part of his looks...

      smart hub regards Zsuzsy

      Excellent hub. I was so upset when Cher got her nose done. Oh, and when Jennifer Grey got hers done she just ended up looking like any of a number of dime a dozen starlets.

      I like my nose even though I have a bump in it...
