Well, all I can say is that this photograph could have been made infinitely worse by the addition of...Nick Nolte.

Ugh...I don't care how good an actor he is, he gives me the creeps.

pennyarrow said...

I bet it takes him hours to pull off that look.

Oh, and when I think of how gorgeous he was in his youth, it just breaks my heart.

StyleSpy said...

Well, it's... memorable. He did at least try to inject a modicum of individuality, so I have to give him points for making the effort.

His current looks (mickeys) can be attributed to the fact that his faced was smashed up like a load of old plates when he tried his luck at boxing and he had to have much reconstructive surgery.

But it is still a case of Taxi for Mr Mutton..

Two expressions of Ma come to mind:

Aw, god love 'im.

And.

Lord love a duck!

Ah, the famous shot of Nolte. Gone are the days when people knew how to dress for mug shots. Capone, for instance, was always well turned out.

How did he get to be such a mess? Sex drugs and rock'n'roll?
