Did Chris Martin get plastic surgery at some point?

Ever seen very early college pictures of Coldplay? Ever seen the "Shiver" video?

Yes, he has brilliant stylists and photoshoppers. Yes, he cuts his hair differently. Yes, it was a huge improvement. Yes, he was sorta cute to begin with in a completely different way. Well, if you're a girl at least. Yes, when he turns his face sideways and catches the lights and the cameras the wrong way he still looks like a pretty fucking ordinary (shall we even say "sexy ugly"? or even forget the "sexy"?) bloke.

But... this man has low self esteem. He does. I feel insecure many of the same ways he does, so I won't knock it. But he has a very different life... and now, a different looking face, even if it's just thanks to those stylists. This is a serious psychological condition he has, and once he was flush with cash, it could have compelled him to do things he later regretted. He is fundamentally a dull person, but that monolithic insecurity is what makes him interesting to me, someone to pity and empathize with rather than jeer at (though that's fun too).

I'm no expert, pathologically uninterested in celebrities and their features most of the time which is why I cant put this in that forum. But no matter how bad his music gets, it feels like this is a guy I understand. I'm sure he hates the idea of surgical jobs (fan of "Fake Plastic Trees" that he is) but looking at those old photos it's just hard to believe this is the same face. Even the new photos where he looks similarly un-special or his hair is not in the ultra-short show-my-brilliant-cheekbones mode, he just looks quite different.

What do you think?

Oh, and if you dont believe about the self esteem... he was a virgin till age 22. The Chris Martin "please like me" persona is not a ploy.

If that's the result of plastic surgery I'd ask for my money back.

Interesting that losing your virginity at an age slightly above the average is interpreted as a sign of low self-esteem.

Many would argue the opposite.

Can I get some visual evidence?

I can't be bothered to go looking for pix, I'm not *that* interested, just a tad curious

Please don't view this as me siding with Chris Martin in any way, but could you tell me why being a virgin until the age of 22 is indicative of low self esteem?

a lot of people would argue losing your virginity at a younger age (i'm talking 14ish) might show some signs of low self esteem. at least in the pics provided, all i can tell is the man got a buzz cut and grew some stubble.

I am sure puberty played a role in this.
