If that's what plastic surgery did for him...

Are you kidding? He's 81. I think your picture proves my point. Have you seen many 81 year olds lately? They usually look like they maybe have a few years left to live. He could pass as a 60 year old easily.

Show me an 81 year old man who looks and seems younger.

Try this. Google image search "81 year old" and see what comes up. Then tell me you don't think Shatner looks young as hell for his age.
As do most people who have plastic surgery. I'd say 70, he couldn't pass as 60.

My grandmother's 73 and people guess she's 60 maximum. Some people look younger naturally. The only thing natural left about Shatner is his equator .

Specifically, the scene in Trek XI that was written for Shatner which never happened.
It's now been used in the comic adaptation.

I don't care how much plastic surgery he's had, plastic surgery doesn't give you the kind of non stop energy he has.

Normally it's very obvious when someone has their face surgically "enhanced" ... I can see no such thing in Shatner's face! Looks very natural to me.

I wasn't implying Shatner's on meds, I was just saying there are medications that increase energy. How am I supposed to know if he is or isn't doped up?

Honestly, I had to google it. Looks like she's still alive.

Preserved and well-botox'd, anyway.

If that picture of Shatner shows any evidence of plastic surgery, then the (beautiful-people) world ought to be beating a path to his plastic surgeon's door. Pretty sure, though, that Shatner's on record as saying he's never had any work done.

Re: William Shatner wants to return as Jim Kirk in Abramís Universe...

It's not an issue to me whether or not he's had plastic surgery, but I wouldn't be beating down his plastic surgeon's door if he did, that's all. No offense intended.

I know, it's pathetic. It's funny, for decades it was "cool" to hate on shatner because he looked fat or he was wearing a toupe or he was too old looking, but now that he's in his 80s and looks/acts the way he does, nobody does it anymore. Now people hope they are like him at that age.

Most people will be lucky to live to 75, and by then they are usually so broken down they can hardly get up and down stairs without complaining.

Re: William Shatner wants to return as Jim Kirk in Abramís Universe...

I don't know what the history is or anything about "hate," but I will say that it's not "pathetic" to state the obvious. There are things out there, some drugs, some supplements (even caffeine), that help to boost energy. It could be natural. Who can say? Same thing goes for his looks, regardless of whether any of us thinks he looks good for his age or not. Now that he's not on Boston Legal, doing major movies, or anything in the mainstream spotlight anymore, I'd guess that's why he's not as much of a topic. He did do a good job as original Kirk, though.
