Viggo Mortensen at the A History of Violence
premiere in Cannes, May, 2005.
is rude enough to post this picture with the following caption:
Abracadabra! Watch Me Make My Sex Appeal Disappear:
Take the bushy moustache and droopy 'do of '70s uber-magician Doug Henning, mix in a touch of foppish Spanish matador and what do you get? The utter destruction of the sole source of manly-man hunkiness in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Viggo Mortensen (yes, that's really dashing Aragorn), who apparently arrived for his Cannes photo op straight from the running of the bulls at Pamplona, styles a stiff and bizarre black bolero costume that's just a red cape away from making us cry, "Ole!" Scratch that ... it's actually just a red cape away from making us cry, "Oy vey!"
For the record, your webmaster has become quite fond of that mustache, and believes that Viggo is welcome to wear whatever he pleases.
