REAL LIFE

The pair of twins who spent £15,000 on cosmetic surgery to look like Brad Pitt

This is so bizarre.

It’s just days after an Angelina super-fan made headlines across the globe for her cosmetic surgery obsession to look like Angelina Jolie, but she was not the first person to go to extreme lengths to emulate their idol. 

Twin brothers Matt and Mike Schlepp from Arizona have spent £15,000 on cosmetic surgery in a bid to look like Brad Pitt. 

The pair endured months of agonising procedures that left them unable to eat proper meals as they desperately tried to change their appearance.

Mike had a nose job as well as cheek, jaw and chin implants while Matt had a nose job and a chin implant.

And between them they had 41 porcelain veneers. 

They underwent the makeover for MTV’s I Want A Famous Face, which they took part in when they were 21.

Speaking on the show, Matt said: ‘It was more than worth it.

‘I would do it ten times over. It has definitely helped me get more girls. I’ll walk and get that double-take from girls and hear the whispering that follows.

‘I’ve had such a dramatic change that girlfriends I hadn’t seen in a while couldn’t stop staring, and said they wanted to cry! If that doesn’t make you feel good, then what would?’

Mike added: ‘I never knew that I could be as happy as I am right now.

‘I feel on top of the world by the few tweaks that I went through. Go through with the surgery now because you don’t want to go through life always feeling down with the way that you look.’
