Rugby star puts wrinkle fears to bed

Welsh rugby star Gavin Henson has revealed he constantly changes which side he sleeps on – to avoid getting wrinkles.
The Welsh rugby pin-up said: “I change sides quite regularly otherwise you get lines. And you can end up with one eye higher than the other.”
Gavin’s girlfriend Charlotte Church recently complained that he takes longer getting ready than her, reports the Sun.
She outed the ladies’ man for shaving his legs to make them extra “lush”. Gavin also spends a fortune on fake tan and gel for his trademark spiky haircut.
He said last month: “It takes two hours to get ready – hot bath, shave my legs and face, moisturise, put fake tan on and do my hair. I need my fellow players to say I’m looking good.” – Ananova
In fairness, the younger players on the Welsh men’s team that came on tour here in May were shellacked in hair gel, clubbin’ clothes and what I would deem “metro” stylings. So maybe, that’s just the thing over in the UK. I’ll stick with our less-metro American men here in the Midwest though.
