Blog Guy, I’m tired of striking out with the chicks. What do those big Hollywood stars have that I don’t have? Can you let us in on some of their secrets?

glamour combo 320Sorry, I’m not supposed to reveal any of them.

Come on. It’s not like anybody else will see it here in your blog.

Okay. It’s mostly their hair. You take a big star like Sean Penn, he pays fifteen, maybe twenty bucks for a haircut, plus a tip.

Twenty bucks? No!

glamor penn smoking 240Yeah, plus the big stars have folk in their entourage that do nothing but make sure they look good in public.

So that’s it? Just the hair?

Not exactly. It’s a whole package thing. These entourage people, they go everywhere with the stars, making the most of their rugged good looks and helping them project the right image.

Regular guys, like you and me, we don’t have that going for us.

Blog Guy, are you sure this is what gets them the chicks?

No, come to think of it, it might just be their fricking money.

Apparently smoking can be hazardous to your hair.

I really enjoy Gerard Depardieu attempting to remake the classic movie Weekend at Bernies, with him as the corpse (as seen in the photo). Now that’s method acting.

When will they learn that smoking does not attract chicks like moi!!
Not that I would want to be attracted to any of these guys anyways…

Cool hairdos, but… oh well, there’s no way the rest of my comment will make it past Mr. Spam Filter. ) 😀

@Nosmo: you’re on a roll today:)

The cigarettes are really a smoke screen. An effort to hide their hair. I find my paper bag to be a much simpler option when I am out in public. It doesn’t set off smoke alarms, either.

Hmmm, I wonder why Mickey hasn’t taken off the makeup he was wearing for Ironman II. Wait – maybe it’s the other way around, and he didn’t need any makeup for that part.

Do you notice how you never see good-looking guys with diy haircuts? Just saying …

I do my own hair cut although it’s not that difficult when all I do is buzz it all off.

I think some guys can really carry off a shaved head…
for example: Jason Statham….

DIY haircuts are a bad thing? Rubbish. I’ll hand the scissors to someone else.
