Memo to Robert Redford

Get a better class of rug. Yeesh. Did you buy that thing on Ebay?

That is awful.

Redford seemed to go from full thatch to hair helmet without any intervening thinning. Usually some harsh lens notices a superstar's 'imperfections.'

by Anonymousreply 304/29/2012

He is also wearing a ton of makeup in that pic. Why not just wear a cap like Ron Howard? Or own his baldness like Sean Connery?

To go from being one of the most gorgeous men in Hollywood to looking like Don Imus' long lost twin must really be stressful.

He needs a lighter, blonder wig, or a grey/blonde combo. The unnatural red color is what screams 'piece'. A tan would help him too.

He's 73; he needs to let go. All he is doing is accentuating his age with an dead red panda on his head.

There is such a huge difference between the pic with Demi in 1993 and the more recent one. He's really again badly though blondes are well-known not to age well. The bad plastic surgery doesn't help.

The hair color with Demi would be so much better - though all grey would look spectacular on him - a la John Slattery.

The real problem with longtime celebs is that there is no one around them to give them the harsh messages and just say 'no' to bad ideas like dark red hair.

He was hottest in The Sting. Newman Redford sandwich...

by Anonymousreply 1407/31/2012

I'll take your word for it since you queens know this stuff, but I truly thought it was just a bad dye job, not a rug. Through the years, it's never seemed that his hair was thinning.

Here he is in Oct 2010. His hair looks bad (better than OP's though), but doesn't look like a rug to me. I mean, why get a rug with an obvious dye job and grey roots?

Also, with this level of demonstrated vanity, why wouldn't he put some product in his hair. It could easily be styled as it was in the Demi pic from Indecent Proposal. It astounds me that these celebs will go to enormous length like botox and surgery to look younger, but won't do something as simple as, oh I don't know, comb their hair.

by Anonymousreply 1507/31/2012

I think he looks good in the Daily Mail photos posted by the OP.

There are other photos from a year or two ago where he was wearing a much worse looking wig perched on his head and askew.

The previous wig looked more synthetic and even more fake.

I think the color is okay in the Daily Mail photos. Doesn't look terrible. He could try other colors, but I'm not sure they would look that much better.

He could try a wig with some gray in it - but maybe he tried that on and it didn't look good.

I think he looks fine for his age. It is difficult to be photogenic in one's 70's and he still manages to look good.

Several years ago, the deep crevices and deep grooves were very extreme on his face. Then he had some facial work done a couple of years ago, and he now looks better.

by Anonymousreply 1607/31/2012

I think it is a good idea to keep your hair short as you loose it and it goes grey and wirey. That is my strategy. The plastic surgery is not great either. I think its best to avoid that as well. One exception- eyelid droop and trouble closing eyes completely associated with age. But that is more practical than a matter of looking younger.

by Anonymousreply 1707/31/2012

He no longer has a young enough face for long and floppy-banged hair, be it his own or a wig. His face and skin tone (wrinkled and liver-spotted!) also can't support that much hair color, be it natural or dyed.

He would also benefit from a shirt with a proper collar. Again, too much wrinkling around the neck and jaw line to expose so much worn-out skin. His neck looks very vulnerable going into the lapels of his jacket without the frame of a crisp shirt collar.

If you take someone like Cary Grant, who aged magnificently, as the gold standard....well, just imagine Cary with Redford's hair and tee-shirt and you can see even Cary couldn't have pulled it off.

Eventually, EVERYBODY is too old for certain styles.

by Anonymousreply 1807/31/2012

It's so great that a man of Bob Redford's age has such a full head of hair, and he hasn't gone gray yet!

by Anonymousreply 1907/31/2012

Totally agree about the T-shirt, he's too old for that look. If he wore a collared shirt it would look much better. Overall, he looks pretty good for 73, he just needs to dress more age-appropriate. And cut his hair short, or wear a toupee that's short-haired.

by Anonymousreply 2007/31/2012

"The previous wig looked more synthetic and even more fake. "

Was it molded out of plastic, or painted on like a Ken doll's?

Seriously, his plastic surgery has settled, and his face is so recognizable that he doesn't need to wear a wig. If he appeared with short ginger-gray hair, he'd look great for his age.

by Anonymousreply 2107/31/2012

Even in that tucked in black tee I can see his nipples have fallen about 2".

But then he is 73.

by Anonymousreply 2207/31/2012

Bob has RED HAIR ! Everyone forgets, because in almost all his films, except " Electric Horseman", it was colored on the blonde side - like in " The Way We Were". Even there though, when Babs beds him, and his shirt is off, you can see his beautiful RED hairy chest fur. We all think of him as a blonde, but he's Red. In his case however, the comment my friends say "better dead than red", re who you sleep with, doesn't apply - when he was young, he was beautiful.

by Anonymousreply 2307/31/2012

Well, if we're also commenting on the overall effect of the clothes, let's discuss those baggy mom jeans pulled up to his belly button.

He seemingly still has a nice build. While I'm not suggesting skinny jeans, he might select a more modern cut, worn lower down on his hips.

by Anonymousreply 2408/01/2012

He wears it so Barabara can still walk up to him and brush the hair out of his eyes.

by Anonymousreply 2508/01/2012

The Mom jeans would be helped immeasurably simply by wearing the tee shirt untucked.

He was sooooo handsome and beautiful. Which is your favourite Robert Redford movie?

by Anonymousreply 3011/20/2012

Yes R30 he was once beautiful but a lifetime of skiing without sunblock will do that to a person.

by Anonymousreply 3111/20/2012

R23 is correct. Redford used to have a lovely head of hair, but decades of bleaching it within an inch of its life could only have contributed to its loss. Of course, the California blond thing was central to his appeal. (When you see him in THE WAY THEY WERE, there's very little effort to make him look "period" at all.)

It's funny how in denial the moviegoing public is about male stars and their appearances: most of them color their hair for specific roles; many over 35 wear hairpieces or wigs; many of them wax or shave their body hair. This has been true for many, many years. It's Hollywood, kids.

75? He looks 85!

by Anonymousreply 3311/20/2012

His skin looks like shit and that beady-eyed look resulting from his surgery just accentuates it. Two raisins stuck in a wrinkled blob of dough. Laser resurfacing would do a lot of him.

The hair looks like a scruffy bathmat, but I think it's his own. He's one of those guys like Trump with real hair so bad you THINK it has to be a horrible rug.

by Anonymousreply 3411/20/2012

Those photos are not only the definition of not aging well, but also the prime reason why people should not suntan to much. His face has been horribly wrinkled for years and years.

by Anonymousreply 3511/20/2012

What's funny is that OP's link in my browser opened as, "Robert Redford reveals his t..."

Sadly, for all the many decades of owning his gazillion acres of land at Sundance, he obviously very rarely used sunscreen or moisturizer. Maybe he thought it was too girly to be caring for his skin while out riding horses in the Utah backcountry.

by Anonymousreply 3611/20/2012

He hasn't had his real hair color since Downhill Racer. And NO man, not even Ronald Reagan, had so much hair on his head after age 70.

Just because the wig's ugly, Bob, doesn't mean we'll think it's not a wig.

Although he was genetically blessed when he was younger, and he aged pretty well into his 40s, he did not age well beyond that. He is a ginger and the liver spots and withered skin is typical for gingers. The hair--I just can't with that.

by Anonymousreply 5301/15/2013

The toupee itself is probably very high quality (individual human hair, etc) - he's just delusional as to how mismatched it is. Healthy, young looking red hair on the wig vs an elderly, grey-white haired, sun-damaged codger beneath it.

Look at, or for, a part in the hair. Look for the scalp. If you never see it, chances are its a wig. You can't compare a movie coif to an off screen pic because its done for the movie.

Redford looks like his hair has gotten FULLER over the last 20 years, which is absurd. It's a wig.

Sydney Pollack was an example of a man who aged gracefully. He got better looking as the years went by and I thought that he was a very sexy man too.

Stayed in shape and always delivered a great performance whether it was comedy or dramatic. I miss him.

He's clearly wearing a wig in OP's picture. Very few would speak up and tell him he's not a sex symbol anymore (in any way.) Burt Lancaster owned his age and looked handsome as he aged.

I always felt Bob was an overrated actor like Warren Beatty (sp?)

Indecent Proposal was a B movie. Perhaps he needed the money at the time. The script was horrible too.

First time one saw a "young" Robert Redford was a few years ago watching an episode of Twilight Zone (Nothing In The Dark)and was gobsmacked. I mean had supposed he was hot in his younger days but had no idea.

A few weeks later happened to catch "Barefoot In The Park" also being shown on television. Never saw anything like *that* in Washington Square Park, barefoot nor no.

Three Days of The Condor was on a few weeks ago, and though filmed in 1975 RR still had it. However one noticed many shots were taken from far away. On close-ups you could see things were happening to his face. IIRC RR also wore glasses on and off during the film which is something hitherto leading men didn't do unless role called for it.

WASP males tend to be all over the place in terms of aging one finds. Some retain a full head of hair and look great well into their sixties. Others look like who did it and ran by age 50.

Kyle MacLachlan still looks good, but there is a bit of German mixed in with that Irish and Cornish ancestry.
