Mel Gibson!

We haven't seen much of Mel Gibson lately. According to, the last time he acted was in 2005. Between then and now he has been behind the camera, directing films (Apocalypto, Passion of the Christ). Now we see why he has been spending so much time behind the camera:

All that beautiful hair is no more. Here's a shot of Mel hiding the hair loss, and below that, Mel forgot his hair piece or comeover or combination of the two...

John Travolta!

Ah, ah, ah, ah losing his hair, losing his hair. Maybe there was something in that greased lightning that did his hairline in...

Sure looks like a rug was glued to his head:

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow.

A flashback and tribute to hair that is no more. Here's to those who have been bald so long we forgot what they looked like with hair:

Andre Agassi

Phil Collins (Singer, Genesis):

Howie Mandel (Deal or No Deal):

Ron Howard (Happy Days)

Sean Connery

David Letterman's Top 10 - How to Pick up Women When You are Bald

Dave would know this first hand...

How to Pick up Women When You are Bald - by David Letterman

10. You’re beautiful, and that’s not just the Rogaine talking.

9. I will shower you with gifts with the money I save not buying shampoo.

8. Would you like to run your fingers through my head?

7. Your eyes are sparkling — or maybe that’s just the glare off my head.

6. Yeah, that’s right, I’m TV’s Paul Shaffer.

5. I don’t have any paper, but you can write your phone number on my forehead.

4. Close your eyes and pretend I’m Dick Cheney.

3. Wanna go back to my place and see my hairpiece?

2. There are two things missing from my life: healthy hair follicle growth and you.

1. Wanna buff me?

Edward Norton!

For years it has been said that Edward Norton (American History X, Rounders) had a hair transplant. It appears there may be some truth in this. Earlier photos show that his hair line is a different shape then it is now. Before, his hair line curved up at the sides of his head, now it is a nice straight line across his forehead. You be the judge:



Ralph Fiennes!

Best known for his roles in Schindler's List, Valdermort in the Harry Potter flicks, and most recently as Michael Berg in The Reader, Ralph Fiennes has opted not to join the hair club for men and instead is embracing his hair's natural state.

Al Pacino!

The bald spot:

The differing hair lines:

The possible hair piece:

Without the possible hair piece (see the thinning in the front):

Ben Affleck (again!)

After I made the entry here, I stumbled upon this picture, which just gives more evidence, from a different angle that all those rumors about Ben having a hair piece are true. Here's the back side, showing a nice bald spot:

There's also the story that Vince Vaughn and Ben Affleck were play fighting and Vince knocked off Ben's hair piece. Click here for that story.

Steve Carell!

Between seasons 1 and 2 of his hit show The Office, Steve Carell seemed to lose weight and gain hair.

Season 1:

Season 2:

So he either got hair plugs or wears a hair piece. I think he wears a piece. In the below pictures you can see his hair line better. It looks like there is a hair piece resting on the top of his head.

Garth Brooks!

Another country singer hiding behind a cowboy hat:

Eventually the hat will come off:

Tim Allen!

This famous comedian, star of Home Improvement, needs some hair improvement these days.

As you can see, his hairline is receding. He seems to be trying to puff his hair up to hide it, but he can't hide it from us!

Joey Lawrence Video

Here's a video of Joey talking about going bald:

Bald Fake Out - Pat Sajak

For Wheel of Fortune's April Fool's Day episode last year, Pat pulled the following trick on Vanna:

William Shatner!

Boldly going where no toupee has ever gone before! Since his early Star Trek days it has been rumored that William Shatner wears a hair piece.

- His Star Trek co-star Robin Curtis discusses William's hair piece (go to about 4 minutes in):

- His ex-brother-in-law is planning to write a tell all book with the following information:

"William Shatner's deceased wife Nerine’s brother is writing a tell-all book about his sister’s mysterious death in 1999, and he’s calling Shatner a liar. William Shatner’s wife Nerine was an alcoholic who was in and out of rehab, and her AA sponsor had warned Bill never to leave her alone. Shatner left her with a housekeeper one day and returned to find her on the bottom of their pool. He called 911 instead of diving in to pull her out. The brother claims that Shatner didn’t jump in the pool because he was wearing a new $25,000 toupee and didn’t want to ruin it! The former brother.-in-law insists “The normal reaction is to pull the person out of the pool and start CPR.” "(The Globe)

In the picture above you can see where his hairline is. In the one below you get a better look at the top of his head.

John Cleese!

Monty Python star John Cleese admits to having a hair transplant.

His reasoning: "Because I've got a very strange shaped skull, very pointy and I don't like wearing wigs."

Pete Wentz!

a.k.a Mr. Ashlee Simpson. Now we know how Fall Out Boy came up with their name and who the name refers to

Usually he combs all his hair forward, it hides the balding on the side of his head better:

Joey Lawrence!

All we can say is "whoa"

Out and proud baldie, Jude Law!

Since Jude Law's career started fading, so did his hair line. But he's not hiding it, he's an out and proud baldie.
