Is It Just Me or Do Male Actors' Heads Get Bigger as They Age?

By Tiffany White

The media spends a lot of time judging the appearance of aging actresses, from pointing out their botched plastic surgery to tearing down the ones who have the audacity to not look 25 when they're 45.   

However, one thing everyone likes to conveniently ignore are male actors, which is hilarious because they change with age too, and not always "like fine wine." 

In fact, you may not have noticed, but many male stars' heads start growing as they get older, taking on an expanded, bloated look. It's a condition I like to call "bigger head syndrome," and it usually hits actors when they're in their late '30s.
