The Word: Robert Pattinson rocks a goatee in Paris
Quit playing games with my heart, Robert Pattinson’s facial hair.
These photos of the star sporting various beards and goatees over the weekend are the photographic equivalent of putting ketchup on a fine cut of filet mignon: Why ruin such perfection?
On Saturday, the star was snapped with a full beard and, might I say, horrific sunglasses (was he going for the “chubby John Lennon” look?) at the Roissy Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, where he met up with “Twilight” co-star Ashley Greene. The two are in town to do promotion for the latest tween blood-sucking installment of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1.”
Luckily, on Sunday night he cleaned up for the red carpet for the film’s Paris premiere by shaving his beard down to a goatee (he also donned a sleek Dolce and Gabbana suit, which helped). That goatee, we ladies can live with. But if you go full-on Brad Pitt/Mark Twain goatee, we’re going to have to talk, Robert.
Winslet: First bra, then granny
For Kate Winslet, first goes the bra, then goes the old people. It seems that in an emergency, the actress’ first instinct is to cover up (she is British, after all).Winslet revealed that when she awoke on Richard Branson’s private island to find the house on fire in August, she thought, “‘Now what do I do?’ So I ran into the bedroom and put on a bra,” she says in an interview with talk-show host Graham Norton. “In disastrous moments like that, you do the strangest things. I started to put on a bra and thought, ‘No, that’s going to take me too long,’ so off came the bra, on came the T-shirt, then I grabbed the children and I picked up granny.” Winslet is credited for carrying Branson’s 90-year-old mother, Eve, to safety as the compound was destroyed by the blaze.
