My theory as to how tennis star Andy Roddick lost his hair is that all the tennis balls zooming by his head caused it. Second theory is genetics. Who knows.
If you are bald/balding and a celebrity, we will find you, and out you.
Thanks to reader EK for this submission.
For a guy named Humphrey, Bogart did pretty well for himself. Became an Oscar winning actor, married the beautiful Lauren Bacall and made tons of money to support his rug wearing needs. You can see that he had different hairlines in each movie he did.
And now here he is without a hair piece:
When Mark Paul Gosselaar starred on Saved by the Bell as Zach Morris, his character was all about his hair. Even if that hair was bleached a bright blond on a regular basis. On Saved by the Bell it was all about a competition between Zach and A.C. Slater (played by Mario Lopez), and a big part of that competition was having good hair (mostly to impress the ladies). However, as time wore on, Mario definitely won that battle.
Mark Paul Gosselaar:
In his own words, "I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available. If you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body." Maybe he didn't die from this dangerous drug (street name CS), but it still had an impact on him physically.
Hats off to the end of Charlie's career!
Thanks to reader Richard M. for this one. Maybe KISS is short for kiss your hair goodbye. We have already outed Gene Simmons (although we were just stating the obvious).
Paul claims he doesn't wear wigs. Can we get him to submit to a lie detector test? Or take bets? That would be one sure bet.
Thanks to reader danteswing13 for this one. Karl Ravech, sportscaster for ESPN, isn't fooling anyone with his toupee. On one fan site a fan posted that if she ever meets Karl in person she will rip his toupee off. A follow up post asks "can I have it? I need a new area rug." It definitely looks like there is enough to go around:
Thanks to reader John A. for this submission (also for sending some of the pics below). John writes:
I thought something looked a bit different about UK "Gangsta" DJ Timothy "Tim" Westwood. By the looks of it, I think the 53 year old has had his hairline reconstructed. As in the last 10 years or so, his hairline has been getting away from him a little bit.
Tim Westwood hosts the UK version of Pimp My Ride, and has his own radio show full of Street Rap right from tha hood. Although the whole of the UK would agree that he is a bit of a prat that thinks he's from da hood, even though he was privately schooled in a very posh school.
Here's Tim in 2008:
Here he is in 2009 with Eminem:
And here he is now:
Wonder what he uses...
Thanks to reader JFRK for this submission and based it off his recent personal sighting of Ralph Macchio.
The original Karate Kid Ralph Macchio was able to stand up to bullies but is not winning the battle against his hair line. And if he thinks he is, he is sorely mistaken. I have no idea what is going on with his hair - your guess is as good as mine!
As they say - hair today, gone tomorrow. Har, har, har.
The latest James Bond may be able to kick butt on screen, but his hairline is kicking his butt in life. Reader James G. writes, "Do you think he brushes it forward to show a lower hairline or is it just filled in with something?" It seems in movies Daniel has a mix of hair pieces, comb-forwards and comb-sideways to make his hair line look fuller. However, lately, in his every day life Daniel is embracing his natural hair line, even as it fades away.
With a body like that I'll bet most of the ladies don't even notice the top of his head.
Thanks to reader Jimmy B. from down under for this submission. We all watched the kids in the Harry Potter movies grow up onscreen. Unfortunately, Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy, has been growing up a bit too fast. At age 23, he is already showing major signs of balding.
There is even a facebook page dedicated to this: Tom Felton is BALDING! NOOOOOOO!!! Guess we aren't the only ones who noticed Tom's hairline.
Thanks to reader David K. for this submission. As David writes "if I had to vote, I'd say it's a rug." I think that would be a unanimous decision, something all the parties could agree on. He has all the classic signs, an unnatural part, different hair colors on the top and bottom of his head, and hair that is way too voluminous to be his.
John Bolton has talked of running for President in 2012. Perhaps his hair piece would be his running mate? And, if his political career doesn't work out, he can always be a spokesperson:
HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — His widow says the only thing Tony Curtis ever wanted to be was a movie star.
Curtis died last night at his home near Las Vegas. He was 85.
He began his movie career in frivolous roles that exploited his looks and personality, but then moved to more substantial roles -- winning an Oscar nomination in "The Defiant Ones" for portraying a white racist who escapes from prison handcuffed to a black man.
Curtis, also starred in "Sweet Smell of Success" and in "Some Like It Hot" -- considered one of the top Hollywood comedies of all time. In that film, Curtis — famously imitating Cary Grant's accent — and Jack Lemmon play jazz musicians who dress up as women to escape retribution after witnessing a gangland massacre. Marilyn Monroe was their co-star.
After his acting career waned, Curtis reinvented himself as a writer and painter whose canvasses sold for as much as $20,000. His daughter, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, says he left behind a "legacy of great performances in movies," and in his artwork.
