They're So Vain! Hollywood's Metrosexual Men

Celebs are generally known for being a little obsessed with their appearance, spending hundreds and thousands of dollars on the latest beauty, diet, or clothing fad. More often than not we associate this "vanity" with the female Hollywood population, but these days, you're just as likely to see a leading man going under the knife or indulging in a papaya enzyme facial mask. Call them metrosexuals if you will, but there are some Hollywood dudes who primp and preen their famous faces beyond mansome...

Brad Pitt

According to Star Magazine, Brad Pitt has been known to wear Man Spanx "to control his pudgy midsection." As if we believe that Pitt has ever had to battle the bulge! More convincing is the story that Brad indulges in a catchily named gadget, the ageLOC Edition Nu Skin Galvanic Spa System II, which supposedly cleanses, tones and rejuvenates skin, while reducing the size of pores and eliminating dark spots and eye bags.

And finally, for when he's a busy man on the go, Brad relies on basic baby wipes to, err, freshen those Pitt pits. While filming "Inglorious Basterds," costar Eli Roth told People that, at one point Brad remarked he was starting to smell a little "ripe" after a busy day running around. When Eli pointed out that he hadn’t had time to shower, Brad gave this bit of personal grooming wisdom:

"Baby wipes, man, baby wipes. I got six kids. All you’ve got to do is just take them, a couple quick wipes under the pits... I don’t have time to take a shower."

David Beckham

With a high-maintenance, fashionista wife like Victoria, David Beckham is constantly under pressure to keep up his hunky appearance. This means that he, along with Queen VB, regularly partake in the illusive Bird Poop Facial, which is a mixture of Nightingale excrement, rice bran, and water. But it seems Becks is taking a lot more beauty cues from his glamorous wife as he says: "I've learned a lot. Being out in the cold and rain doesn't help your skin, so moisturiser in the morning is a big thing. And at night it's the eye cream. A manicure is probably my favourite pampering splurge."

We guess a couple that preens together stays together.

Ryan Reynolds is never without his California perma-tan, well groomed hair or radiant trophy wife, Blake Lively. He's your classic pretty boy, but have you ever wondered about his beauty secrets? In an interview with Details mag, Ryan says one of his biggest tip is not to overpluck your eyebrows: "I see guys with, like, eyebrow art, and I wanna tell them, 'You don't have to go too crazy on your brows. Take it easy, man!'"

To keep his hot bod in shape he also runs "four to six miles about three times a week" and consistently tries to eat right.

Ryan Seacrest

If you ask American Idol judge Randy Jackson, he'll tell you that -- Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj aside -- host Ryan Seacrest is the biggest diva of all! During an appearance on The Talk, Randy opened up about Ryan’s beauty obsession: "I equate this whole diva thing to like, how many beauty products do you have? How long does it take you to get ready?" He added the reason Ryan and Simon Cowell were so close on Idol was "because they were both using products that weren’t even on the market." Which brings us to our next unmanly-man...

Simon Cowell

Over the years, Simon Cowell has been looking younger and younger, but his flawless face is purely a result of Botox (which he once gave out as Christmas gifts to his co-judges), fillers or drinking from the fountain of youth. It's said that Cowell also relies on... wait for it... $500 a pop sheep placenta facials. Ewwww, or should that be ewe?

The facial is carried out at the Beverly Hills Lancer dermatology clinic and consists of the stem cells from special, New Zealand-reared sheep, mixed with 24 carat gold flakes, which is then spread over Cowell's skin. Finally, a “galvanised metal probe” is prodded over the skin to ensure the product penetrates deeply.

Another starlet not ashamed to admit his indulgences is "Oz the Great and Powerful" star James Franco. He snapped a selfie of himself rocking eye masks (see evidence above) and went on to tell Ryan Seacrest's radio show: "I feel kind of ridiculous when they’re on and it makes me realize what a strange life I have so I like to just document it and share it and not hide that I live a slightly ridiculous life." At least he's aware of how foolish he looks.
