If a nose breaks in Hollywood, does it make a sound? Josh Hutcherson, better known as Peeta from Hunger Games, tweeted that he recently had surgery to fix his broken nose, and that "recovery sucks." Poor guy.
I don't know about you, though, but I feel like there's a lot of people who "break their noses" in LaLa Land without so much as an audible whimper. Which is to say, they don't really break their nose at all, they just say they do so they can explain the bandages and the black and blue eye sockets for the next few weeks.
Who knows (nose? tee hee) whether or not Josh had a little acky dink and needed to undergo rhinoplasty, but I'm not willing to give him more of the benefit of the doubt just because he's a guy.
Men in Hollywood are under pressure to look their best, too. They're not under as much scrutiny as the women, but I bet they're getting unsolicited advice all the time about how they could tuck this, or nip that.
Again, no idea whether or not Josh went under the knife for superficial purposes, but I'm just saying that I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't really need that surgery, because, well, that's just the way things work out there. And I would know. I once had a connecting flight through L.A.X.
Regardless of my brazen lack of actual expertise, I'm going to go ahead and call Josh's nose job a fake out. I bet he's pulling an Alexis Bellino on us, saying he needed the operation, but really was in there to fix up something that only he thought needed fixing.
But I'm just butting in here, sticking my nose where it does't belong. As long as Josh is happy, and ready and willing to play Peeta in the next movie, that's all that matters.
Hollywood nose jobs. Discuss.
