Hugh Jackman now owns the most popular look in Hollywood, and has become the leading inspiration for men's cosmetic surgery.Australian website news.com.au reports that Hugh's accolade of 'Sexiest Man Alive' has seen the X-Men star overtake the former most popular male cosmetic surgery inspiration Brad Pitt, as Brad's pretty-boy features now take second place to Hugh's more natural, rugged appearance. LA plastic surgeon Dr Robert Rey revealed: "Hugh Jackman just passed Brad Pitt in my list of what men ask for." According to Dr Rey, more of his patients are requesting cosmetic surgery procedures to emulate the Australian star such as nose reshaping procedures, with patients asking: "'Doc, can I have a gut ripped like his. Doc, can I have a nose like his?'" Although many men and women are still inspired to undergo surgery to emulate Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - the so-called 'Brangelina effect' - Dr Rey believes it's Australian stars who are now making the biggest impression. "Australians have really made a huge impact on the world, especially in Hollywood, with their standard of beauty," Dr Rey explained, and revealed that women frequently ask for nose jobs to look like Nicole Kidman. With his reprisal of Wolverine in this summer's blockbuster smash X-Men Origins: Wolverine being followed up by other exciting projects, it seems likely that Hugh Jackman will continue to be an inspiration for men's cosmetic surgery choices for many years to come.
