JOSH LUCAS TURNED DOWN A DOCTOR WHO OFFERED TO GIVE HIM KEVIN COSTNER’S NOSE: Josh Lucas revealed to Extra in a recent interview that he turned down an offer to have his nose look like his Yellowstone costar Kevin Costner’s nose. “Earlier this year, I got a wood splitter… and one of the pieces of oak exploded and it hit me so badly in the face that it badly busted my nose. I had to have complete reconstructive surgery on my nose. I had to have it rebuilt,” he told the outlet. “So I went to the plastic surgeon and he showed me photographs of myself and photographs of Kevin Costner… He showed me Kevin’s nose on my face and he said, ‘We can give you Kevin’s nose.'” The Sweet Home Alabama actor replied, “No, I don’t want Kevin’s nose. I want my nose!”
