Struggling Actor Pays $5,000 For Plastic Surgery To Look Like Ryan Gosling
They say imitation is the highest form of flattery. But Ryan Gosling may be more disturbed than flattered to learn that a man by the name of Nicholas Ryan paid $5,000 recently to undergo cosmetic surgery to look more like the heartthrob. Nicholas, a 32-year-old aspiring actor, went under the knife for more than two hours in the hopes that his new face would help him land more acting jobs.
“I wanted more definition in my jaw bone, like Ryan Gosling,” Nicholas said, according to the Daily Mail. “I’m going for roles that demand a more rugged look in a man’s face. My favorite Ryan Gosling movie is Gangster Squad, a role that suits that type of heroic face. He’s got a look that a lot of people in America are looking for right now, especially in my line of work. I’m hoping I’ll get more auditions and roles if I look more like Ryan Gosling. That’s why I had the surgery.”
In an attempt to make Ryan look more like Gosling, Beverly Hills surgeon Dr Tim Neavin—who “specializes in Hollywood transformations and facial remodeling”—injected Nicholas’ face with Botox and other fillers.
“The patient already shares some similarities with Ryan Gosling, but has some deficiencies, so we built those areas out to give him that squared-off jaw Ryan Gosling made famous,” Neavin explained. “We filled out the temples and put a little Botox around the brow. Then we injected some product along the cheek junction, to make it a little smoother. The biggest issue I wanted to address was the hollowness in the face. We injected more product to blend it with the cheekbone. The patient’s laugh lines were also a little prominent, so we filled them in to smooth them out—this really gives the patient a youthful, well-rested appearance.”
Nicholas is happy with the results and says he has already gotten the attention of the opposite sex. “I went to a pool party this week, like we do here in LA, and this girl came up to me and she said, ‘You have a very Ryan Gosling look to you.’ I couldn’t believe it!” said Ryan. “After all the stuff I had gone through, it was amazing.”
