Nobody, not even celebrities, are immune to developing gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts), a condition that affects up to half of all men at one time or another in their life.
While female celebrities are often criticized for their lack of breasts, many people keep tabs on which male celebrities have “moobs” (man boobs). We’ve collected a list of 10 famous men who have an appearance that resembles this condition.
10. Jeremy Piven
While Piven has joked that his man boobs were caused by too much soy milk, there’s no medical evidence that soy-based foods could increase estrogen in the body to the point of triggering gynecomastia.
9. Jack Black
Unlike the majority of men who are embarrassed by their enlarged breasts, Jack Black embraces his moobs. He takes pride in his bust, and shows no sign of confidence issues!
8. Ice T
Though not as buxom as his wife, Ice T has noticeable moobs he’s not afraid to show off at the beach.
7. David Hasselhoff
Though fit, Hasselhoff has not escaped man boobs as he’s aged.
6. John Travolta
Another victim of aging, John Travolta’s man boobs have become more noticeable in recent years.
5. Simon Cowell
Though he’s gotten fit and toned, Simon can’t shake the moobs he has that show through in tight T-shirts.
4. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Aging can trigger gynecomastia, and bodybuilders often develop the condition as well, so it’s not surprising that Arnold Schwarzenegger, a former bodybuilder, is sporting some moobs of his own.
3. Hulk Hogan
Aging and excessive tanning have not been kind to Hulk Hogan’s skin, whose moobs are quite noticeable.
3. Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke has had some plastic surgery over the years to repair damage done from his boxing career, but he hasn’t gotten around to surgery for his moobs just yet.
1. Jack Nicholson
Nicholson tops every “moob” list, and for good reason. Even under clothing, his man boobs are clearly visible, and at the beach they’re out in the open for everyone to see.
You Have Treatment Options
If you have gynecomastia, you’re not alone. The condition is caused by a hormone imbalance and can affect all men, young or old, depending on a variety of factors that control estrogen in the body.
While established gynecomastia will not go away on its own, gynecomastia surgery is an effective method for getting rid of man boobs.
The surgery consists of chest liposuction and excision of male breast tissue, and when performed by a qualified surgeon, such as our New York gynecomastia specialists, should produce permanent results.
