Jude Law is a brilliant actor and one of our most popular movie stars.
There is no denying that he has also traded on his 'heart-throb' status over many years.
But the recent pictures of Jude published in the media show he is suffering from the the advanced stages of male pattern baldness.
Approximately 25% of men begin balding by the age of 30; two-thirds begin balding by 60.
Jude, at 40, shows appreciable hair loss around his hairline.
As our surgeon Asim Shahmalak made clear in a recent piece with the Daily Mail, if Jude doesn't act quickly to combat his hair loss, it could be too late.
Read the full article here:
Dr Shahmalak said: "He will need a fairly large medical procedure to sort it out. If he does not take action in the next few yers, he lose the remaining tuft of hair he has at the front of his scalp and be completely bald at the front of his head. His problem could be easily remedied with a hair transplant.
"It would be a similar procedure to those undergone by Wayne Rooney. If Jude leaves it any longer, the bald patch will be too large to fix. The transplanted hair will be permanent and last him for life."
Other Hollywood stars have taken action to cover up their hair loss.
Kevin Spacey has started wearing a hair piece.
You can see pictures of Spacey with his new hair in this article from the Daily Mail which also features Dr Shahmalak.
Spacey's hair piece looks great but this kind of remedy is not for everyone.
As Dr Shahmalak, points out: the only permanent solution to male pattern baldness is a hair transplant.
