What if you are a Justin Bieber fan and you want to look like your idol? There are few options:
You can wear the same outfits, can have similar hairstyle or usually you can wear a mask. But this 33 years old Bieber fan takes it to the new heights. Toby Sheldon, a Los Angeles songwriter, has set $100,000 on cosmetic surgery over five years to look like the 19-year-old pop singer Justin Bieber. This is what Sheldon looks like after all that plastic surgery he had done to resemble the Canadian crooner
“It’s Justin’s smile that gives him his youthful look. So I had my upper lip lifted and my bottom lip plumped out. My smile surgery took more than a month to recover from. And, after my eyelid surgery, I couldn’t open my eyes for a week.”, Sheldon said. Before all this Sheldon went for botox injections and hair transplant.
Gravity has soared to the top of the box office with a record-breaking $55.6 million in North America, which is the highest October opening of all time, surpassing Paranormal Activity 3’s $52.6 million debut, as well as being the career-best for Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity is already a hit with critics, but this weekend it saw box office to match,
“In two days, this movie has become a cultural phenomenon. People that haven’t gone to the movies in years, or who only see one or two movies a year, are going to see Gravity. It’s a film that’s played well with the press and also equally well with the public,” said Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution.
