Daniel Craig might have won acclaim for his latest ventures as 007 in Skyfall, but he has been reportedly told his receding hairline might jeopardise the role.
Networks executives have warned James Bond actor that failure to curb his hair loss could his suitability for the part.
Skyfall is on track to be the highest earning Bond Film ever
Hair transplant surgeon Dr Asim Shahmalak recommended that Craig, who has played Bond on three occasions in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, should consider getting a hair transplant. The doctor also commented that the receding hairline could be a result of playing such a physical role.
“Like Sean Connery before him, Daniel Craig’s Bond is receding slightly around the temples. It’s obviously a very physical role, and Craig bulks up considerably to play Bond. It’s possible dramatic changes in diet, exercise and his body’s muscle mass will have a knock- on effect on his testosterone levels, and thus his hair,” he told The Sun.
However, he also went on to note that a number of his Bond predecessors, including Timothy Dalton, Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan, also sported slightly receding hairlines.
It has also been reported that Skyfall director Sam Mendes was keen to have the original 007 Sean Connery make an appearance in the film.
The latest film in the franchise is on course to be the highest-earning Bond movie ever, after taking £32.7 million in the UK box office during its first week alone.
Reality TV star Diem Brown has uploaded a powerful video documenting her hair loss after chemotherapy sessions. The 30 year old, who is fighting ovarian cancer for the second time, she explained that she wanted to provide a source for other young women losing their hair – something she felt was lacking when she initially did her own online research. She wrote on her People.com blog: “I was curious about the hair loss process. I wanted to see how the hair falling out actually happened.
She says she choose this week to publish her video because she had been “really quite ill and haven’t been able to think straight through the medication haze to write a coherent blog.” She also wanted to lift the lid on the reality of a young woman losing her hair after chemo, so that other women in her position have some idea of what to expect. “It’s a raw, real, no make-up or care of what I look like,” she blogs. “I justed wanted to make my google search contribution, so that future patients Googling hair loss during chemo can see exactly waht happens when you don’t shave it off.”
Diem Brown is founder of MedGift, a gift registry that functions as an online listing of a patient’s needs, wants and wishes during treatment and recovery.
A number of men have filed lawsuits against drug maker Merck after experiencing side effects related to the hair loss drug Propecia, and one former patient is taking it much further–Kevin Malley, who is a former public health researcher from Las Vegas, Nevada, has staged a hunger strike and protest outside of Merck’s headquarters, which are located in New Jersey. He says that he experienced side effects as a result of his use of the drug that have virtually destroyed his life, leaving him with complications lasting much longer than could reasonably be expected. A number of patients have brought forth Propecia litigation with the help of a personal injury lawyer, but Malley is going even farther by staging his protest outside of company headquarters.
Propecia erectile dysfunction cause of fury
Kevin Malley is 30 years old and claims that he began taking the medication in 2011 to combat his hair loss. Five months later, he claims that he began experiencing side effects from his Propecia use, including erectile dysfunction and loss of libido. Although he stopped his use of the medication, his side effects did not go away. He claims that even now, despite having discontinued his use for eight months, the side effects have not resolved themselves. He claims that drug maker Merck should be held responsible for the loss of his quality of life.
Malley claims that as a result of his physical and psychological ailments resulting from his Propecia use, he resigned from his research position and broke off his engagement with his fiancée after she learned that his sexual dysfunction might be permanent. Malley found that a number of other men had experienced the same side effects and complications as he has, and has decided to take action against the drug manufacturer as a result.
Studies support Propecia plaintiffs
Studies have been released that seem to show a link between Propecia use and lasting sexual dysfunction, including one conducted by Dr. Michael S. Irwig. He found that more than 90 percent of the men he surveyed in his study developed low libido and erectile dysfunction after taking Propecia and many of these patients experienced side effects for an average of 40 months after they stopped taking the medication.
