Michaeldouglas_oceans12pr_240 Speculation that Michael Douglas has had a facelift have been revived after pictures taken some years ago have started to circulate on the Internet.

The photos, which were reportedly taken in 2005, show the Oscar winner in profile from both sides leaving a restaurant. While the skin near his left ear is bandaged, the area around his right ear is still bloody and scarred.

Representatives for Douglas could not be reached for comment in light of the Good Friday holiday.

Recent photos showing some scarring around Douglas' ears are probably what prompted the older pics to resurface. The sudden interest in whether or not the actor has had plastic surgery is puzzling, but perhaps the double standard is at play here.

Women in the entertainment industry are almost expected to retain their looks through any means necessary, including going under the knife, whereas men are expected to become more distinguished as they age, like Sean Connery.

Yeah right, just tell that to Mickey Rourke.

At 64-years-old, Douglas is 25 years senior to his wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, 39. They have two children together.

Douglas' next film is the Matthew McConaugheyJennifer Garner comedy "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past," which opens nationwide on Friday, May 1.

What we really want to know is, who really cares?
