A 32-year-old Brit has recreated himself thanks to the faces of Hollywood's leading men - and a little help from a real-life Barbie.

Miserable MILES KENDALL desperately wanted to change his "boring" and "reclusive" life and was so impressed by Barbie wannabe Cindy Jackson's cosmetic surgery makeover he asked for her advice.

Jackson had undergone 47 surgeries to look like a living doll Barbie - and Kendall wanted to be her KEN.

He says, "I contacted her and I said, 'There hasn't been a male version of you in the world. Can I be it?'"

Together the couple decided to pick aspects of famous faces like those of Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and Russell Crowe to remodel Kendall's features.

Jackson explains, "We settled on Tom Cruise's eyes, Brad Pitt's nose, George Clooney's lips, Russell Crowe's chin, Johnny Depp's cheekbones and JUDE LAW's teeth."

Three months after the surgery, which included a nose job, brow lift, eye lift, lip augmentation and cheek and jaw implants, Kendall felt like a new man, although he had his reservations.

He explains, "It's no fun having surgery because who the hell wants to be bruised and stitched and bandaged and swollen.

"But it was all worth it. I now have a regular radio show. I would never have had the confidence before."
