John Kerry’s face causes people to wonder. His taut skin forced his campaign team to flat out deny rumors of Botox use during his presidential run. No less a source than the Washington Post did a 2013 article on Kerry’s face that quoted a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic dermatologist speculating that Kerry may have had a “little work done,” as they say in the business. (The dermatologist pointed out the stress alone can change your face–and Kerry is in a pretty stressful job.)
Kerry seems imperturbable these days talking about his ongoing negotiations with Iran on a nuclear freeze. And his face is remarkably unlined for a 69-year-old man who served in both a war and the U.S. Senate. The good news is that Kerry’s remarkably preserved face is about the only thing both parties in Congress might agree on. Everybody agrees the kind of face Kerry should show Iran is one that doesn’t blink.
