Gordon Ramsay might be able to take the heat in the kitchen but when Simon Cowell remarked on his deep facial lines, the celebrity chef decided enough was enough.
"My mother said they were smile lines," the Michelin-starred chef told Britain's Radio Times magazine, referring to the deep grooves on his chin. "I could deal with that at 21, but not at 42."
Furthermore, he said, "Simon Cowell suggested that now I'm a success in America, I should do something, so I had a filler put under the deep crevices."

Gordon Ramsay isn't about to get into an all-out food fight with fellow chef Mario Batali – but that didn't stop the outspoken Hell's Kitchen star from tossing a little mud at his rival on Wednesday.
"It's really sad. I have never met Mario Batali," Ramsay told reporters when asked about a supposed long-running feud between the two men.
On Tuesday, the New York Post's Page Six reported that Batali had banned Ramsay from eating at his restaurants – including Manhattan's Babbo and the Spotted Pig – after Ramsay made up an unflattering nickname for him.

Chef Gordon Ramsay has a new target for his famous temper: Prince Charles.
The Hell's Kitchen star, who has notched up 12 Michelin stars and a string of successful restaurants, has condemned some of the prince's line of organic produce for being "boring" and "processed."
The Prince, 59, established Duchy Originals to market a wide range of organic foods – from oatmeal crackers to meat.
But Ramsay, 41, tells the magazine of the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph, "I am upset with him. When I looked at his Duchy food I was gobsmacked, amazed, dumbfounded at what I discovered."
