Brad Pitt, or William Bradley Pitt in real life, has been in the acting business since the late 1980s. An Oscar nominee three times over, Brad is famous and powerful in the entertainment industry and he’s also regarded as one of the most attractive people in Hollywood.
No, actually, he is one of the most attractive people in the human race.
Fans and critics alike, however, think that Brad has had plastic surgery to achieve his good looks. This modern-day Adonis always managed to look dashing and distinguished even next to the gorgeous women he has been associated with like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie.
Starting off with playing bit roles, it was only a matter time before this man with a remarkably handsome face and hunky body was going to land unforgettable lead roles. And he did so with “Meet Joe Black,” “Interview with a Vampire,” “Se7en,” “12 Monkeys,” “The Fight Club” and a score of hit movies.
Brad, named the “Sexiest Man Alive” at one point, also made it big in Hollywood because of his immense talents. While blessed with exquisite and attractive features, he has also proven himself to be a cunning businessman by churning box office films like “Benjamin Button” and “The Departed” as an actor and producer.
Currently at 55, Brad looks to be aging well. While he has never admitted to getting help from cosmetic surgeons, some people find it hard to believe.
Before & After Photos
So, has Brad Pitt undergone cosmetic enhancements and does he even need it when he’s a Hollywood god? Let’s go over some evidence below.
Did Brad Pitt have nose job?
There have been rumors that Brad got rhinoplasty but looking at these photos of young and older Brad, I could say that there are no noticeable alterations to his nose. The size of his nose tip is the same and the bridge doesn’t seem to have any significant differences.
So, I don’t buy the rumors that Brad had a nose job as there’s no clear evidence to support the claims.
Has Brad had jaw surgery?
His prominent jawline has also been the subject of plastic surgery rumors. People have wondered if he had his jaw contoured, re-shaped and defined to improve his facial features.
Even with facial hair, Brad’s jawline is distinct and obvious. This is probably one of his best assets and I’m sure you’ll agree.
But I’ve watched Brad through most of his older movies and he’s had that prominent jawline since “Meet Joe Black” in the early 1990s. I don’t think he got his jaw cosmetically enhanced. I believe he was born with this well-defined feature.
Did he get botox or facelift?
How did Brad manage to be almost wrinkle-free all these years? Fans think he has regular botox and facelift to look ageless. In fact, after his divorce from Angelina, there were speculations he visited a plastic surgeon to get work done because his skin looks smoother, especially on the forehead.
I don’t think Brad had botox or a facelift because his expressions and smile remain natural as always. There are no obvious changes or difference to his face as well, which will usually stand out if he got something done.
I also disagree that he had a browlift to touch up his forehead. Those deep lines are always there, as these before and after photos will show. If anything, Brad might have had some peeling and non-invasive skin care procedures to keep his skin smooth, clear and young-looking, which celebrities do often since they’re always in the public eye.
Does Brad have hair transplant?
If Brad is suffering from hair loss and receding hairline, that’s understandable because he’s in his 50s. I don’t think, however, that he’s doing something to cover thinning hair, such as a hair transplant.
Also, look at his photo on the right (after) — he still has a full head of thick hair even if he’s aging. He won’t likely have to worry about thinning hair.
He probably pinned his ears back
There is one flaw in Brad Pitt’s physical features that may have had some correction with plastic surgery. To be specific, fans believe that Brad had an otoplasty, a procedure that pins, resizes and corrects the ear so that it doesn’t look odd. I’m inclined to agree with the speculations.
His old ears weren’t bad to look at, to be clear, but it was bigger and rounder that it was distracting from his pretty face. I think his appearance improved after the alleged nip and tuck as seen in these comparison pics. Not that he needed it but Brad definitely looks more handsome after the speculated enhancement.
Nothing wrong with his teeth
Brad didn’t have to worry much about getting his teeth fixed because he had a pretty smile even as a teenager. These before and after photos show that Brad’s teeth never needed braces or dental veneers. I bet this guy didn’t even have an awkward teenager phase. The gods obviously favored him, what a lucky dude!
Brad Pitt: Then and Now
Want to see how Brad has transformed from a young boy to one of the sexiest men in Hollywood? Check out these pictures below.
Teenager: Youth charm
Young Brad had this boyish and mischievous charm. He looked like the kind of kid who was well-behaved and well-loved by his friends’ mom but then he’s actually the naughty one getting the group in trouble.
Year 1987: Career debut
Brad started as an extra in the movies. The boy from Oklahoma, however, needed better style as this green loose tank top looks tacky. But hey, this was the ’80s after all!
With his good looks, however, he was never meant to be a background and bit player. Brad’s thick blond hair made him stand out even as a young up-and-coming actor and he’s got that muscular lean frame that girls would go crazy for.
In short, it would be hard to ignore Brad Pitt because he’s born to be the leading man and this photo proves it.
Year 1994: The Vampire
Brad wore his blond hair longer to play a vampire in “Interview with the Vampire.” He made the immortal look hot! I’m also quite liking the facial hair because he looks more manly even with long hair.
Year 1999: Fight Club look
Brad changed up his looks for the “Fight Club.” He sported a spikey up-do and colored his hair a bit darker. He trimmed his facial hair and kept a neat goatee under his lower lip.
This is actually one of my favorite Brad Pitt looks. It’s cool and casual and I do think he was wearing an earring on his left ear. Nice touch!
Year 2005: Short blonde
Brad went with a shorter blond hair after playing Achilles, the Greek god hero, in the movie “Troy.” I don’t particularly like this hair color on him but I think it made him look younger. He shaved off his beard but kept the rough stubbles around his jawline, which I think really worked for him.
He has a neat hairstyle, but he doesn’t look too clean and well-groomed like an altar boy because of the stubbles on his face.
Year 2009: The moustache
He had his hair darkened again but the mustache made Brad look somewhat older. Still, he’s handsome as always. Around this time, he also became a dad to a growing brood of six children so looking older, more experienced and full of wisdom seemed fitting.
Year 2013: Handsome zombie fighter
Brad was the handsome zombie fighter with this look for his movie “World War Z.” He does carry long hair pretty well, don’t you agree?
His beard has specs of white hair now and I love that he didn’t try to cover this up by dyeing or tinting it. There are noticeable wrinkles around his eyes as well. He looks ruggedly handsome in this photo even while appearing slightly older. He’s looking fine as he’s aging.
Year 2017: Losing some pounds
Does divorce agree with Brad? Because looks like he aged backward in this photo. Where are his wrinkles? But he also seemed to have lost some pounds because his jawline is more pronounced and there is no fat around his cheeks. In his early 50s, Brad still has a thick head of hair.
Year 2019: White beard
There’s a huge age difference to Brad’s face in this photo than two years ago. Maybe it’s the lighting that highlighted those wrinkles around his eyes. His beard has more white hair now than the last time and good for him for embracing this!

I have no doubts that Brad Pitt deserves to be named one of the sexiest man alive or the handsomest human being. He’s definitely a looker! I think that he’ll be in the same league with Robert Redford when he’s in his ’70s — gorgeous despite the wrinkles.
I also have no reason to believe Brad had plastic surgery like facelift or a nose job. Apart from the fact that he doesn’t need to alter his appearance, Brad seems to be taking care of his skin and body really well.
If anything, I think this Hollywood god is naturally gifted — in terms of appearance and talent. He needs little effort to look great and unlike us mortals.
