THEORY: THE QUALITY OF A JAVIER BARDEM MOVIE IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE CRAZINESS OF HIS HAIR
Oscar winner and aspirational hairstyle possessor Javier Bardem may have been working steadily at this acting thing for whole decades before rising to Hollywood prominence over the last few years, but it’s a wicked combination of talent and willingness to lop at his locks that have placed him a cut above his acting brethren. Sure, the man has talent to spare, but we dare you to name another working actor so willing to change up a large part of appearance by way of unforgiving scissors and dye.
At the very least, Bardem is willing to mess with his tresses when it serves the character at hand – and it’s becoming increasingly more acceptable to assume that the wackier his hairstyle, the more totally bonkers and thematically rich its hosting film will be (even if the rest of the film around him is more straight-laced, or straight-locked, given our subject matter). But just how closely does that correlation hold upon further reflection?
