Douglas bears plastic surgery scars

[World News] BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, April 2 : U.S. actor Michael Douglas is showing unattractive scars that indicate he has undergone facial plastic surgery, The Sun reported Saturday.

Douglas and wife Catherine Zeta Jones have been vacationing in Barbados for the past two weeks with their two children, and earlier this week, Douglas suddenly appeared in public with scars and bandages by his ears.

The 60-year-old "Basic Instinct" star had a bandage beneath his left ear and what the newspaper described as "a weeping wound" by his right ear as he left a restaurant with his 35-year-old wife.

The Oscar winner reportedly had an operation to tighten the skin around his eyes before his wedding to Zeta Jones five years ago.

She also had work done to her eyes at a clinic in Beverly Hills in 2001 and hid behind dark sunglasses until the scars healed.
