Here I sat piecing together thoughts on the Great NY Adventure, when I suffered a terrifying visual hallucination. From what I recollect, TORn released its Monday interview of our boy. They quote RA as saying this:
“God I can’t wait! I miss that beard! It was really weird. I hated it when I had it, and then when I shaved it off, I was like, ‘Where’s my chin?!’”
I couldn’t believe my eyes. But after ascertaining I had not suffered a stroke, my outrage turned to TORn. Slander! Libel! They blaspheme! But reassured that TORn is a reputable outfit which would never misquote RA, I had to turn sadly to the source. My disappointment has been deep, my conviction shattered. So after prolonged chanting and centering of my chi, I solemnly compose this letter:
WTF is wrong wit choo???!!! Are you serious?. Did you forget the itching and scratching involved with growing a beard already? Your chin is right there on your face, luv. Right there clearly defined where we can see it, as it is intended. I know it was nice not shaving every morning, but let’s not go crazy! It hid your chin! I also realize you find talk about your looks hilarious, but it is what it is, dude. The last I looked, the Grizzly Adams look is not the thing nor the best look for you. If anybody tells you otherwise, they are deceived, Rich. Deceeeeived!
Just grow the beard for the last bit of filming, shave Fuzzy Wuzzy immediately afterwards, pull up your big boy pants and move on. That weird feeling too shall pass again. I’ll just put this down to delirium caused by fatigue along with the reference to being 6 feet 3.5.
PS: Don’t even think about keeping it!
PPS: Call your stylist!
PPPS: Erm, please.
PPPS: Just wear George, Lex or Fernando again and we can put this behind us. Scout’s honor. *
Ahh, I feel better now. Hopefully, the NYC adventure will be posted Friday or over the weekend.
