Tom Brady also only eats chick peas and kale now.

[–]Scary_Pineapple_3477 6032 points6033 points  (558 children)

Exactly, eat peas and kale and workout all day for 15 years and anyone will look a lot better

[–]warpedspoon 2349 points2350 points  (418 children)

you think he hasn't had surgery? he has at the very least had a hair transplant for sure.

[–]Hypogi 2372 points2373 points  (348 children)

That is not the same nose.

[–]drpepper7557 911 points912 points  (157 children)

He's smiling in the first pic. When I smile, my nose doubles in width. Here's a more recent pic of him with a wide smile. Doesn't look too different for 20 years apart.

[–]cortez0498 1153 points1154 points  (86 children)

It's also no the same camera lens

[–]Hamster_High_Dive 26 points27 points  (2 children)

He's just not smiling and stretching his nostrils. Dude just lost a lot of weight, postures himself better due to being insanely famous and knows how to set up his face for pics, and has a more complimentary haircut. He's also tan and aging did him well.

[–]sxyfish 125 points126 points  (28 children)

he is smiling in one and not the other.

[–]Pottymouthoftheyear 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Most peoples nostrils flare when the muscles around them are raised.

[–]Electricengineer 39 points40 points  (4 children)

Camera focal length trick.

[–]DragoonXNucleon 77 points78 points  (12 children)

Different focal length has a profound impact on nose. Also, being a football player for that long its highly likely his face has been rearranged a few times.

Not ruling out plastic surgery, but here prolly not.

[–]Scary_Pineapple_3477 104 points105 points  (29 children)

You're right definitely a hair transplant but I don't know about anything else. He doesn't seem like the kind of athlete that would take time off from football to recover from unnecessary surgeries. He and Bellichuk were famously obsessed with football and would watch film and practice 8-10 hours a day 7 days a week all year

[–]OldNewUsedConfused 21 points22 points  (3 children)

He’s been spotted entering the back door of one Dr. Robert Leonard in Cranston, RI

[–]Bruins14 53 points54 points  (6 children)

For plastic surgery, many procedures, you can have very little time off for recovery needed and can still do stuff.

[–]bucksncowboys513 26 points27 points  (7 children)

To a certain point. The wealth really becomes a factor when you look at the team around him. Trainers, nutritionists and dieticians, home chef, etc.

[–]DeadWishUpon 18 points19 points  (4 children)

That's more like it. It's easier to keep a diet when someone else is cooking and counting the calories for you and you don't have a 9 to 5 job. Also it's part of his job so there's extra motivation.

[–]VodkaAlchemist 209 points210 points  (73 children)

Exactly, eat peas and kale and workout all day for 15 years and anyone will look a lot better

As if he wasn't working out for 15 years beforehand? I mean lets be real here 15 years of NFL football isn't going to make your body more resilient. It's going to break it down. The fact that the dude is like 44 years old and STILL one of the best quarterbacks in the league is an unparalleled achievement.

[–]DeepJunglePowerWild 191 points192 points  (41 children)

I think more of it has to do with body fat %. If you see how Brady can put down beers he clearly partook quite a bit in college. Eliminating that from the diet will do wonders for how slim his face looks… + plastic surgery.

[–]paone00022 161 points162 points  (10 children)

Brian Hoyer: "We played up at Buffalo and we couldn't fly back into Boston because the weather was so bad, so we had to stay the night in Rochester. We drove there, and we all decided we'd go out to dinner together. Tom being who he was, he usually couldn't come to a team event like that. We might be at Capital grille and he is sneaking in the back door and then people realize he's there and he has to leave. But this was impromptu at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Rochester. The whole team is there. And it turns into a beer-chugging contest. You have linemen, Julian Edelman, they all think they are going to win. Then someone says, 'I heard Tom is really great at chugging a beer.' We don't usually get to experience him like this, but we finally coax him into doing it. He does it, and let me tell you, you couldn't have poured out the beer faster into a glass. It was unbelievable. And he slams the mug on the table and puts both fists in the air. He walks away with a look on his face that said, 'You really thought you were going to beat me on this?' The place went nuts."

Younger Tom definitely partook in some beers.

[–]socokid 42 points43 points  (7 children)

It's going to break it down

Joints and muscles, yes. Also, he's a quarterback. He's getting hit the least, by far. Especially Tom. He sits in a pocket and either passes or hands it off.

Tom wasn't a defensive lineman. Not even on the same planet.

[–]CharonsLittleHelper 14 points15 points  (5 children)

He's getting hit the least, by far.

Less than the kicker?

[–]HALBowman 27 points28 points  (3 children)

Testosterone helps a lot fwiw. It's anti-inflammatory which makes a tremendous difference in the long run.

[–]MEANINgLESS_NUMBERS 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So like OP said, money. Do you know how much exercise I would do if I didn’t have to work? Me neither but probably some.

[–]leif777 269 points270 points  (53 children)

And Bündchen

[–]Niubai 144 points145 points  (33 children)

Fun fact: in Brazil Tom Brady is widely known as giselle Bundchen trophy husband.

[–]Qu1kXSpectation 66 points67 points  (16 children)

She did make more than him most of his career, if not currently still.

[–]EasyDezit 48 points49 points  (15 children)

Tom will be leveling the playing field soon with that $375 mill contract from Fox lol

[–]fruskydekke 41 points42 points  (9 children)

Not just in Brazil. I live in Europe, and before I started hanging out on Reddit, my knowledge of Tom Brady was limited to "that guy giselle married".

(Now I have Reddit knowledge and know that he's a sports dude. Playing, I think?? American football. And he kisses his son, which is significant somehow.)

[–]KaputMaelstrom 8 points9 points  (0 children)

We call him "giselo"

[–]Burrito-tuesday 86 points87 points  (4 children)

They’ve both had one heck of a nose job, amongst other things.

[–]thx1138- 32 points33 points  (4 children)

He said chick pee.

[–]HallucinatoryFrog 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What's the difference between a chickpea and a garbanzo bean? I've never paid $10k to have a garbanzo bean on my face.

[–]THEmandingoBoy 12 points13 points  (1 child)

And ass. He gets a hefty dose of ass too.

[–]bumbletowne 225 points226 points  (29 children)

Also his wife is a supermodel and has taught him about FOV and how to smile into a camera (chin down shoulder back relax top of face, flat too wide smile to show off your best tooth profile)

[–]RockerElvis 245 points246 points  (17 children)

The difference between the camera used for a team headshot and a modeling shoot are night and day. The camera in the first picture was probably 3 feet away from him like a DMV photo. The picture on the right was a high end camera at least 10 feet away with proper lighting.

[–]Wat3rtribe 109 points110 points  (9 children)

This! There’s a phenomenon in photography where shooting close up using a lens with a shorter focal length distorts your facial features. This can be corrected by shooting from further away using a lens with a longer focal length and zooming in. Not saying that he definitely hasn’t had work done, but that is likely contributing to the huge difference in his features here.

[–]bumbletowne 15 points16 points  (4 children)

That's exactly what I see, here. I'm not a photographer and I don't take pictures but my bestie is a pro portraiter and my husband is REALLY into cameras and I've seen night and day with their handiwork. Both my brother and sister have done modeling and they are constantly on about how you should pose.

[–]throwaway1975764 29 points30 points  (3 children)

Exactly. In the second photo, yes his face is leaner. But he also has a more flattering haircut, more flattering clothes (neck line), better lighting, and better camera, plus he's been taught how to pose his face vs a big goofy smile.

... but it kinda proves the point. Money can and does buy that kind of insight.

[–]LatterNeighborhood58 37 points38 points  (0 children)

And also has an army of stylists and photographers who eat peas and kale.

[–]dccorona 59 points60 points  (30 children)

True, but he can also afford to hire the kind of people who know how to make chickpeas and kale palatable and feel varied day in and day out.

It's amazing how much easier eating health is when 1. you don't have to worry about the cost, and 2. you can afford to have the food prepared for you by a professional every meal. Besides just tasting better, getting the planning, shopping, and cooking off your plate so you never end up caving for what's quicker and easier (and also unhealthier) can make a big difference.

[–]Unadvantaged 38 points39 points  (15 children)

I’ll admit, if I had someone cooking me health food every day I’d be much more likely to eat it than a box of processed garbage. Honestly, whatever is easiest wins most of the time, and food on a plate being handed to me is quite easy indeed.

[–]DeletedLastAccount[🍰] 18 points19 points  (13 children)

I'm constantly amazed at how much like black magic a large segment of the population finds simple cookery.

You don't have to be a Michelin Star level chef to make a palatable meal.

Decent meals aren't some arcane witchery, and yet people will spend more time learning a dumb TikTok dance than on making a decent pot of soup.

[–]galyndean 10 points11 points  (2 children)

There's a big difference between an hour and ten minutes.

To make even a simple meal from scratch still takes prep, even if all of the ingredients are portioned out exactly for you. To make a box takes significantly less time, especially if it's something like, add meat & water and your meat is already thawed.

[–]HallucinatoryFrog 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Usually just comes down to knowing your spices too. Made many a great meal using crock pots or instant pots with minimal work involved. One of my go-to recipes is a homemade "hamburger helper" where you just boil some water for some macaroni noodles while browning your meat of choice or sautee'ing some chickpeas along with a saucepan on a low simmer with some spaghetti sauce mixed with a jar of pesto. Drain the meat and macaroni, throw everything back into the pot you cooked the macaroni and stir. Takes 20-30 mins total.

[–]Subject-Plum-6638 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Hey Alexa, Add to shopping list: chickpeas and kale

[–]Beast818 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Hey Alexa, Add to shopping list: giselle Bundchen

[–]Hedonisticbiped 20 points21 points  (44 children)

Chick peas is my favorite fetish.

Wtf is a kale?

[–]Steve_the_Samurai 18 points19 points  (16 children)

Kale is what my local Pizza Hut used to put the pizza tins on in the all you can eat pizza buffet.

[–]joecarter93 11 points12 points  (15 children)

I used to work at a buffet in high school and my first year of college. We used to go through 2.5 huge boxes of the stuff every day just to cover up the ice on the buffet table. When eating Kale became popular I was perplexed because it tastes about as bad as it smells.

[–]fisticuffs32 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I've never paid for a woman to kale on my face.

[–]A_Rampaging_Hobo 2997 points2998 points  (62 children)

[–]kifl22122 774 points775 points  (30 children)

Ill have you know many a hockey player had that hair style in 1996

[–]n0_duuh 327 points328 points  (19 children)

[–]fancy_marmot 103 points104 points  (2 children)

My husband had that same Dwight Schrute haircut when we met. I credit that horribleness for our marriage, since it's probably why he was single.

[–]DapperCam 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Kudos to you for seeing past the haircut

[–]DaWhiteMandarin 83 points84 points  (4 children)

It’s also comparing a DMV photo to one from a professional that has also undergone post processing.

[–]graniteMtn 64 points65 points  (3 children)

And the bad vs. good portrait photography + staying in shape, was the other 50%.

[–]Walden_Walkabout 28 points29 points  (1 child)

And probably learning how to pose for a portrait. In the first photo he head is tilted a little back pulling his chin in, which makes your jaw less defined and face look fatter. In the second he has his head pushed forward just a little bit, which is slimming and makes the jaw appear more defined.

[–]priceisalright 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Ye-ye ass haircut.

[–]visionsofsugarplums 3207 points3208 points  (328 children)

In all honesty the photo on the right is super edited as well, to create a more drastic difference.

But hands down, dude looks better now then he did in his 20s for sure.

Probably any guy that can maintain their muscle mass and hairline while decreasing their body fat will look better at 44 than 22.

True facts. It’s wild to me to see how people can grow into themselves.

[–]gigawort 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Yeah, this is me (minus the hairline).

Despite the receding hairline, WAAAY more women hit on me in my 40s than my 20s.

[–]soapbutt 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Also focal length can have a huge affect on head shape.

[–]Floating0821 197 points198 points  (166 children)

Several plastic surgeries help

[–]Clemsontigger16 296 points297 points  (155 children)

Is there any evidence of this or just conjecture? I’ve never heard of Tom getting plastic surgery

[–]tyranthraxxus 168 points169 points  (63 children)


Unless they admit it, there can't really be any evidence, beyond the fact that his jaw and nose and hairline are all a completely different shape than they were 15 years ago.


There's no "evidence" that Mark Mcgrath has had plastic surgery either, and he vehemently denies it. What do you think? Should we take his word for it?

[–]kr580 167 points168 points  (21 children)

I think they're all being deceived by different camera focal lengths, the fact rookie Brady had some extra weight and wishful thinking. His jaw looks the same, he's just thinned out. His nose could be different but it looks just about the same throughout all the photos; losing weight and getting older will thin it out, too. His hairline is nearly identical in all the photos, so I'm not sure what they're getting at there. Why get plugs and make it uneven still?

People got too much time and now I'm upset with myself for letting myself get sucked into this, haha.

[–]Michelanvalo 28 points29 points  (0 children)

A picture of Mark without him scrunching his cheeks would make a better comparison though.

[–]giga_69grind 63 points64 points  (3 children)

Doesnt look like he got any plasric surgery, looks like he lost a lot of fat. And aged, wich naturally makes tou cheek fat didsapear and make your cheeks more hollow, the only thing I could see him having is a hair transplant

[–]JRSmithsBurner 7 points8 points  (1 child)

He lost weight and finished puberty

Doesn’t look like he had surgery at all. I’m frankly bewildered you even think so tbh

[–]gcfio 1353 points1354 points  (131 children)

His parents had season tickets to the 49ers and took him to the playoff games. I don’t think he grew up poor.

[–]Um5acentric 550 points551 points  (42 children)

Someone found his resume from college a few years back. He had summer jobs at a golf course and internships with Merrill Lynch. Even if football didn't work dude would not be hurting right now.

[–]Bearwoods 215 points216 points  (18 children)

I mean the Merrill Lynch internship was much more likely due to him being the QB of the university of Michigan. If you’re a publicly well known athlete at a major university you’re gonna have a ton of doors open for you.

[–]corylol 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Yeah and summer jobs at golf courses aren’t exactly hard to get or high paying lmao. Not saying he was poor but his summer jobs don’t mean shit. The fact he was working summer jobs says a lot though

[–]oryes 104 points105 points  (10 children)

Yea and it's not just name recognition. Being the QB at a D1 school also means that you are driven, you work hard, etc. These are things employers look for.

[–]worldssmallestfan1 21 points22 points  (2 children)

Will work unpaid and work until midnight and barley blink an eye.

[–]beigs 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I worked at a golf club for years because they paid well. Not because I was rich.

[–]nizzy2k11 29 points30 points  (6 children)

maybe, but i know several people in my high school who worked at the local country club, its not exactly a hard job to get, and they mostly work for tips of the well to do members.

[–]RIFLRIFLRIFLRIFL 42 points43 points  (12 children)

The fact that he was working summer jobs makes it sound like he wasn’t so rich. “Worked at a golf course” sounds like he sold apparel in the pro shop and drove around the course making sure people followed rules.

[–]NDEYSAYshiveryisded 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Eh rich ppl like resume experience too

[–]Stogie_Bear 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Lots of rich people make their kids get jobs that will either help them make connections or look good on a resume.

[–]TheMrSomeguy 22 points23 points  (4 children)

Selling apparel in a golf pro shop is the exact type of cushy gig that rich kids have in the Summer. It's not like he was working the grill at Wendy's.

[–]RIFLRIFLRIFLRIFL 24 points25 points  (0 children)

It’s the exact type of cushy gig you get when you’re the starting QB for one of the best college football teams in the country. Perfect setup for boosters.

[–]James007Bond 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]SirFrancis_Bacon 49 points50 points  (31 children)

When the majority of your income stops coming from your work.

Edit: There seems to be a lot of people confusing income from capital investments as income from work.

They are not the same thing.

Yes, at one point in his career Tom Brady would have been working class. At the point when his income from capital investments overtook his income from his work, he would cease to be working class and be considered capitalist class, by the definition I gave.

[–]Shutterstormphoto 21 points22 points  (5 children)

Using a photography studio as a model here: Photographer has assistants. They help set up etc, but the photog does all the major work of shooting and editing and booking. Then gets a booking agent to handle that. Then gets an assistant photog. Then gets an editor. Every customer is still coming because of the photog’s name, but they are doing less and less of the work.

Eventually the photog is not shooting and is busy doing marketing for more gigs. A bunch of other photogs do all of the shooting but the owner still picks the final shots for editors to work on. Customers still come for the name.

This still sounds like the majority of income comes from their work to me, but they are not doing the actual work. Do you agree? Where do they fit?

[–]Clear_Ad6232 23 points24 points  (5 children)

So Tom Brady’s billion dollar fortune still means he is working class? Hmm I think the definitions suck.

[–]1eris1 4 points5 points  (3 children)

So Tom Brady is working class but a retiree living off their investments is part of the ruling class?

[–]epenthesis 10 points11 points  (8 children)

So, by your standards, someone who has a net worth of 2 M$ (60 k$/yr in safe draw down) and a salary of 100 k$/yr would not ruling class. But if that same person were to quit their job, they would be.

Not sure that makes a lot of sense.

As much as you'd like to draw sharp lines between the classes, the fact of the matter is, the majority of Americans make some money from capital returns (ie, own their own house or own stock), and there's a smooth continuum in terms of what percentage of their income comes from it.

To put a finer point on it: 60% of income for retirees comes from returns on capital (as opposed to social security). Does that mean the majority of retirees are "ruling class?

What's the deal with reddit and calling average looking people "ugly"?

[–]LuftWaffle1305 115 points116 points  (13 children)

Most Redditors aren’t very good looking so they have to drag the average ones down to their level to feel better about themselves.

Also black pilling and all those shitty internet “philosophies” that have gotten popular lately make some men think that if you don’t look like Brad Pitt women see you as worthless insect

[–]DenverPuckhead 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Hah, I was just talking to my friend about these weird internet phenomenon. Another one I've seen a lot is the "sigma male", though I've been too lazy and disinterested to learn what it means.

I can't say much about looks, because "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and so forth. But having been to a handful of reddit meetup groups, I can certainly attest to their general social awkwardness. They are weird and awkward and believe in the most bizarre shit as it pertains to social constructs. They are hyper focused on things that regular folks just don't care about or think that much about in their daily lives, like biological superiority and social hierarchies. Like, when I met my wife for the first time, I wasn't thinking about how I was going to go alpha on other surrounding males to gain her attention. I just smiled and said 'hi' and was nice to her.

[–]keepthepennys 4 points5 points  (3 children)

It’s insecurity that ferments and rots. The sad thing is most of these people can easily get a girlfriend if they weren’t insecure and were instead confident in themselves, but instead they can only feel secure in themselves if they are a 6’6 genetic god that makes women wet with a glance and give up because obviously if you aren’t giga chad you have no chance

He wasn't even average before. Sure, he had a bad haircut, some fat on his jaw and a weird smile on that picture, but other than that he was definetly above average (and light years away from the reddit average)

edit: typo

[–]_OldManYellsAtCloud_ 41 points42 points  (3 children)

First picture kinda reminds me of Handsome Shrek

[–]Kramerica5A 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Exactly what I thought too

[–]kopecs 64 points65 points  (12 children)

Title should read: “I sniff peoples farts compared to people sniff my farts.”

[–]eiafish 17 points18 points  (2 children)

Yeah honestly, I actually prefer them before.

[–]MD74 24 points25 points  (2 children)

Tbh, I can’t even really tell who’s a better looking guy.

[–]HCJohnson 21 points22 points  (1 child)

It's you, you're the better looking guy.

[–]MD74 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Aww shucks ☺️

[–]blueday7 586 points587 points  (37 children)

Nice try. That chiseled bone structure was just hidden w/ baby fat. Born handsome

[–]stnrnts 206 points207 points  (27 children)

Or exercise and a haircut

[–]thisiswhatsinmybrain[🍰] 247 points248 points  (9 children)

And a tan. And some photoshop.

[–]phabphour20 34 points35 points  (0 children)

Definitely some photoshop

[–]SourceCodee 67 points68 points  (0 children)

And professional lighting and cameraman

[–]lunchpadmcfat 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Nose and chin exercise, def

[–]yougotitdude88 12 points13 points  (6 children)

And a professional chef

[–]srjohnson2 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Lol. 100% hair transplant.

[–]Jahbroni 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Brady followed the 3 rules:

  1. Be handsome
  2. Be attractive
  3. Don't be unattractive

[–]redthunder49 56 points57 points  (1 child)

The dude on the left looks better than most people in this comment section….

[–]holmyliquor 124 points125 points  (3 children)

You’re not ugly you just eat like shit and acquired many pounds of fat

[–]Herodotus_9 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Eh it’s true back to munching on ice cream

[–]AFewBerries 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Hey some of us are skinny and ugly

[–]Esselon 59 points60 points  (5 children)

I mean yes he looks like a model in the right hand picture but is anyone really arguing he's ugly on the left?

[–]materialdesigner 58 points59 points  (4 children)

Yes, and.

The photo on the right is well-shot.

On the left photo: The lighting is flat and washes him out. It’s shot from below and you can see the underside of his jaw. His haircut is flat and shapeless and covers his forehead. His pose is straight-on (vs 3/4)

[–]qdtk 34 points35 points  (2 children)

Some people drastically underestimate the power of different camera lenses, posing, and dramatic lighting. OMg look it’s plastic surgery https://www.reddit.com/r/interestingasfuck/comments/q5g25c/the_difference_a_lens_can_make_in_the_appearance/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf

[–]FrostyD7 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Also 20 years of aging. I'm guessing most redditors just haven't lived long enough to witness it.

[–]supergnawer 30 points31 points  (1 child)

IDK what's this about, but 75% of the difference here is facial expression. And half of that is because the right photo is by a good photographer.

[–]syrenashen 10 points11 points  (2 children)

I'm not poor, but I'm still ugly.

[–]cs1maniac 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The second one is literally a photoshopped picture from an advertisement wtf are you comparing right now

[–]powerkerb 62 points63 points  (18 children)

one was taken by regular sports photographer, other one was taken by pro portrait photog. just diff angle, lighting and facial expression.

[–]habb 8 points9 points  (0 children)

or lost a lot of weight?

[–]Murky_Fennel_416 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Don’t get a nose job , lip fillers and chin reduction . Just workout and eat peas

[–]MadroxKran 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Why is his head a different shape?

[–]sciencebased 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I don't care much about Brady's face comparisons but I think we all know what Chuck is talking about here.

I'm not from Los Angeles where celebs are dime a dozen, nor have I ever been one to fanboy hard upon meeting/seeing one. In fact it's usually the opposite. I was a bit of a political buff during high school and me and another kid had the chance to meet Hillary Clinton for like ten minutes in 2005. She was terrifying looking up close. (sorry, teenage boy judgemental but I was a fan). However, in contrast to that several years ago a girl I was seeing helped run a local comic con and they had Nikolaj Coster-Waldau meeting peeps- she knew I liked goT and offered to have me skip the line for a quick bit. Figured, sure whatever might be cool.

JESUS CRACK BABY CHRIST you wouldn't think it possible but that man is SOOOOOO much prettier in person. Still can't remember exactly what kind of sounds I uttered about ski resorts but it was bad. So majestic. That convention center smelled like BO & cosplay but not within twenty feet of him. Bet he wasn't wearing anything either.

[–]Ill-Associate3699 22 points23 points  (8 children)

Also proof that certain expressions, facial hair and haircuts are deemed more attractive.

[–]poopooplatypus 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A mix of him being young and more bulky, and the fact that men look better with age/photoshop lol

[–]monkeyhead04 68 points69 points  (13 children)

New nose too.

[–]BoisterousLaugh 31 points32 points  (10 children)

Looks like smiling nose vs smolder.

[–]FrostyD7 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Reddit detectives are really embarrassing themselves on this one trying to convince themselves why its not normal for someone to look more attractive in their 40's compared to what is effectively their high school yearbook photo.

[–]mrellenwood 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Maybe it’s the smile, but I actually prefer his before so… point not proven.

[–]gentleman_Callr 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So what I get from this is even if you think your ugly you can get out of your house, learn a skill, make millions and marry a super model. So what is everyone in this subs excuse then???

[–]TheRealLestat 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Lmao anybody can eat clen and tren. That's all it takes

[–]niallw1997 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Literally got a haircut and a tan, and grew out of a babyface. How tf has this got so many upvotes

[–]Adarkes01 18 points19 points  (5 children)

This isn’t about money. The lesson here is what a healthy lifestyle and a trip to the barber does for a man.

[–]BlintzKriegBop 7 points8 points  (1 child)

He still looks like a potato.

[–]justabill71 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's the eyes.

[–]Powerful_Ad4017 29 points30 points  (23 children)

Actually it's proof that a consistently active lifestyle and healthy diet can improve your looks immensely, yet people want to keep pretending it doesn't matter at all because it takes away any personal responsibility for themselves.

Also, first pic he was a lot younger with a round baby fat face and a haircut that didn't flatter him. The second is after years of physical training, strict dieting and marrying a model who's obviously going to make sure you look stylish

[–]Druid51 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Ok a quick breakdown.

  1. Different haircut making his face appear not as wide.
  2. Losing fat again making his face less wide.
  3. Smirk instead of a smile improving the jawline, and making his nose not as wide, yet again making his face less wide.
  4. Much tanner on the right bringing out the the face contours. Same reason why bodybuilders spray tan.
  5. Better lighting. The harsh white light on the left kills all the shadows that accentuate the face.
  6. Sports portrait camera vs modelling portrait camera. Both serve a different purpose, the camera on the right is to make someone appear as attractive as possible.
