Because sometimes grooming can go south…
With the release of the anticipated space drama “Jupiter Ascending,” another reason why male grooming can go horrible will be shown. Awkward male grooming is in full display here, with Tatum Channing’s platinum blond facial hair easily takes the cake. The movie was supposed to be shown last summer but was pushed back several times to finish some special effects, and yet they completely forgot to correct Tatum’s hair. That blond facial hair lessens his street cred as an interplanetary bounty hunter. But Tatum’s hair is not the only one. Here are some questionable male grooming decisions on some movies.
John Travolta, “Battlefield Earth”
This film almost killed John Travolta’s carrer. The movie is about a future where the human race has been enslaved by Psyclos, an alien race. Travolta plays the evil Terl, a member of the alien race who works as security officer who is in charge of earth. Sporting dirty dreadlocks confused us more than the film’s drawn-out plot, Terl looked more like a stinky hobo backpacking all over Europe than an alien oppressor of earthlings.
Gary Oldman, “The Fifth Element”
There’s a quote that we’ll paraphrase that goes “in looking into the future, we must look back to the past.” In Luc Besson’s futuristic movie, he went for a more emo, gothic look in presenting Gary Oldman’s character, the villain, Mr. Zorg. Oldman’s character had this straight combed to the side black hair with a hipster side shave. It seemed that Mr. Zorg’s design has been inspired by the bad profile pics from Tumblr. But hey, being villain means having no one telling you that you have a bad hair.
Tom Hanks, “The Da Vinci Code”
Tom Hanks is brilliant actor. He’s able to put his Tom Hanks-ness in every character that he plays. He always had his curly hair and a laughter that brings warmth in our hearts. But in “The Da Vinci Code,” Hanks departed from this tried and tested formula and went for a long, Harvard professor-ish hair. From looking like a guy who’s been with his wife for a long time, he became a man who looks like he’s been divorced three times.
