Last week, starlet Megan Fox attempted to put to rest once and for all speculation that she'd had Botox. The 25-year-old Jonah Hex star has been accused of transforming her appearance with the wrinkle-freezing toxin and getting plastic surgery. So in order to put those rumors to rest, Fox posted several pictures of her face as she displayed expressions such as frowns, raised eyebrows and furrowed brows. The idea was to show off all her wrinkles, disproving her speculated Botox use - she even captioned the series of pictures "Things You Can't Do With Your Face When You Have Botox." But many experts are recaptioning the series "Things You Can Do With Photoshop." California dermatologists and a plastic surgery Web site suspect Fox is faking her expressions. They describe the arc-like wrinkle patterns as Fox raises her eyebrows as "unnatural." "Looks like Megan is just as talented with Photoshop as she is in entertainment," said plastic surgeon and blogger Dr. Nicholas Vendemia of New York. "Those lines on her forehead are totally fake. ... Muscles in the forehead and brow simply don't create curved wrinkles like that. The wrinkles Megan is showing us don't coincide with brow anatomy, nor do they match the facial expression she is making." California dermatologic surgeon dermatologist Dr. David Sire added, "I have never seen the frontalis [forehead] muscle do this unless the muscle was surgically cut. It appears as if she is frowning and elevating her brow at the same time. Quite a feat!"
