Norman Reedus in West Hollywood

Posted on March 25, 2013

If any fan boys or fan girls feel they need to comfort Darryl after last night’s Walking Dead, don’t worry about it, darlings.


‘The Walking Dead’ star Norman Reedus with his dog in West Hollywood, California.

He’s got it covered.

Oh, shit. We should have warned you, right? All those wasted ova dropping unexpectedly, and it’s all our fault. Sorry, darlings. But really, it’s Norman’s fault. And that adorable little bitch’s.

While these pictures are adorable and we find nothing objectionable about his clothes, that hair pains us. We actually mentioned it last night while watching the episode. “Wait. How does Darryl find time to style his hair like that?”

But why are we even bothering to type words here? You’re all drooling, fan girls. We can hear you from here.

  • I want to be that dog. I wanna be Norman’s little bitch.

  • meh

  • gabbilevy

    Meh. He looks like he smells bad. But I’m not a fan of TWD, so what do I know? Puppy’s cute.

    • You’re not the only one.

      • mjude

        thats fine, there are plenty here that will take him…:)

    • NaTalie EZdalga

      Your logic just gave me STD.

  • My ovaries weep.

  • Maybe they’ll finally let Daryl have a big dog now.
    That’s also a very fat chihuahua. In fact, enough that maybe it’s not fat but is rather a chihuahua-corgi hybrid? Is there such a thing? A corgihuahua, as it were?

    • Alyssa

      I would love to have a corgihuahua…please let that be a thing!

      ETA: I checked, they do exist, but they’re called chigis. I like your name way better.

      • Thanks! Though I kind of want to bastardize the spelling a little, into corgiwawa, because it amuses me.

    • Jessi03

      I was wondering if it’s a daschuahua. Dachshund/chihuahua? Is that a thing?

      • It is a thing. They’re called Chaweenies, and they’re adorable.

    • StellaZafella

      I have a Big dog and also a Chihuahua that size and shape and, at 10.5 pounds he seems ’round’ but the vet says it’s his ideal weight. It doesn’t help that he’s also long haired so he looks like a robot dust mop walking down the street (he struts, he doesn’t waddle). It makes me, personally, more aware that animals AND people come in all shapes and sizes and it doesn’t automatically mean something’s wrong with them.

      He was an adult puppy mill rescue and we’re inseparable -his name is Oliver Underfoot.

      • I have a ten pound chihuahua too. Some people don’t know anything about them but feel it’s necessary to tell me that he is “big” or “fat.” 🙁

      • editrixie

        I love that name! I do dog fostering for a rescue group, and that is very very true — they come in all shapes and sizes, and they all have something to give you. Every time I walk one of the small dogs I have, I have to listen to people making stupid remarks about their size and how they’re not “real” dogs, or going “here kitty kitty” or whatever dumbass thing they think is clever. I love my cats, but dogs give you a different kind of love.

      • formerlyAnon

        Ourstanding dog name. Most particularly for a dog described as looking like a robot dust mop!

      • That’s more what I was trying to get at by talking about the dog possibly being a corgi hybrid – some dogs are naturally roly-poly cuties, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. I do feel like I see a lot of overweight dogs being walked by rich people in Manhattan’s upper East side, but that’s another story.

      • angryparsnip

        I wish there was someway for you to post a photo of Oliver Underfoot !
        Daughter works at Humane Society clinic and is a short term foster Mum…. you should see the sweethearts she has taken care of big and small.
        cheers, parsnip

    • There are chihuahua-corgi mixes, but please do not give them a cutesy name that combines the two. It would be a chihuahua-corgi mix. Just like a “puggle” is a pug-beagle mix, and so on.

  • Alyssa

    *drooling* That dog is so cute, and I’m super jealous of it right now! I love a man who can rock plaid!

  • AnneNotHathaway

    I’m sure it’s sweet (well, actually, I’m not sure), but that is one unattractive dog. Moreover, that hair is enough to keep my ovaries firmly in place, thank you.

    • Not true!!! That puppy is so cute! Could care less about the man though.

      • AnneNotHathaway

        I respect your opinion, but when I look at the dog, I can’t imagine it smelling of anything other than recently-ingested cat litter and despair. To be completely fair, though, I’m of the opinion that a dog isn’t really a dog unless you could put a saddle on it and ride it in a dire situation.

        • call_me_schmeg

          we call my brother’s dog ‘the cutest ugly dog in the world.’ (alternately, ‘the ugliest cute dog in the world.’) he’s had different total strangers tell him, in the span of 20 minutes, that his dog was either “so cute!” or “whoa, that’s an ugly dog.” thankfully, i don’t think he’s ever been told the unfortunate fella reeks of “recently-ingested cat litter and despair.”

  • MilaXX

    I think he and Carol are sharing hair tips because they are both working a variation of Jane Fonda’s Klute ‘do.

  • Jessi03

    The hair is awful, but zomg puppyyyyy!

  • lilibetp

    I would never drop an ova on a man who looks like he seldom bathes. And has such an imbecilic hairdo.

  • Allyson Wells

    Darryl/Norman seems much better looking in zombie apocalypse world, where he’s a huge badass. In the real world with his little pooch, he doesn’t do it for me. Great actor, though!

  • He has a kitty too that he puts all over his twitter and instagram. I don’t find him hot, really, but I kind of want to snuggle him anyway.

  • MK03

    Chubby chihuahua!! Chubby, squinty chihuahua!!

  • I can’t drool over him because I’m too distracted by the hair. HATE IT.

  • ccinnc

    He does nothing for me.

  • korilian

    He’s probably one of those actors that you have to see in action to get and I don’t watch WD, but the pooch is adorable.

  • I actually love the hair. And him. And the Walking Dead.
    And that he also has a cat.

  • He looks like countless guys you might glimpse across America . He’s got some scruff; he’s got greasy unkempt hair; he’s got an untucked plaid shirt and jeans on. He doesn’t look particularly remarkable to me, and he isn’t wearing the clothes or carrying himself in a way that makes him swoon-worthy.

    Since I don’t watch TWD, I must be missing something, but my pants remain unmoved!

  • Spreecord

    He just looks so. fucking. dirty. And not in a hot way. In a greasy, smelly way.

    • NoGovernmentName

      What exactly looks dirty to you (in a bad way– plenty looks dirty to me, in a good way). His hair looks clean. His facial hair isn’t gorgeous, but it is at least groomed. Clothes are clean. I don’t get this criticism of him.

      • I can see this point of view. His hair looks greasy to me (it’s shiny, uncombed, and matted, which reads “dirty” to my eyes), but even beyond that, I think there’s a certain messiness built into this look that makes it seem unkempt, which can come across as dirty. The fading jeans with the pocket bulges, the untucked shirt, the stubble, the heavy shoes: all of these things make him look ungroomed from head to toe. I don’t think any of those things mean “dirty” on their own, but when combined, I do see why some would see it leaning too far in that direction.

        • NoGovernmentName

          Matted? I don’t see matted. I see stringy, sure, and I’m pretty sure the shine is from product, not unwashed hair grease. The whole hairstyle reads as artifice to me: an unkempt (but as we know, perpetually maintained) cut, with product and styling used to make it look like bed head when really, it’s very much a deliberately created look that I’m sure he spends time on every day. The facial hair is not all that great, but again, it’s maintained because it is always the same shape and length. The shirt looks clean to me, untucked sure, but the front has been pressed or it would be wrinkled and not laying flat as it is, and is has an unstructured collar. The pants, really? We’re criticizing it as dirty for having bulgy pockets? Every straight man I know (and several gay ones) has jeans like this that he wears when walking the dogs or whatever he is doing when he doesn’t care how he looks. I would not call him ungroomed. I’d call him studiously (questionably, but studiously) groomed from the neck up and casual Sunday from the neck down. “Dirty” is unsupported IMO. Unkempt I’ll give you, but hey, I like unkempt. De gustibus.

          And I just spent WAY MORE TIME than anyone should analyzing this throw away look… My apologies.

      • Spreecord

        He just looks dirty and greasy. It’s a look that he has. Just like Jennifer Lawrence looks like she would be fun to drink with, or Nicole Kidman looks like she has plastic covers on her furniture, or Anne Hathaway looks like she smells of Earl Grey tea and talks endlessly about Nietzsche.

        • NoGovernmentName

          I wrote a book about this down below, which you might want to skip 😉 but overall I don’t find him dirty looking. Unkempt, a little rough looking, all of those are hot. I don’t personally find dirt and grease attractive. To me, James Franco, Robert Pattinson, and Kristen Stewart always look several days away from their last shower, but not Norman. I think he looks clean but scruffy. I find him overall to be very deliberate in his scruffiness. That hairstyle that people are saying looks greasy and gross to me looks like an hour in the bathroom in front of the mirror for that very effect. Perplexing, maybe, but that’s my take on it.

        • fiestyfashionfem

          If I could I would like this a 1000 times.

    • oohsparkley!

      The hair looks clean and shiny to me. But it is a very strange haircut. I suppose he cuts it himself in the Zombie-verse. I’ve seen enough of Walking Dead to be strongly attracted to him even with that hair.

    • Be careful, someone on this site is trying to make “hygiene shaming” a thing.

  • Sarah

    I remember visiting my friend in NYC about 10 years ago and mistakenly asking him if he was kidding with his haircut. It was SO BAD, I thought it had to be a joke. It wasn’t, and he earnestly meant it, in a fashion-y way. It was equally as awful as this hair is. So this hair is both incredibly unflattering AND passé.

  • mjude

    sigh…thanks tlo (said in a hushed voice).

  • he can wear, or not wear, whatever the hell he wants.

  • I agree with you re watching the show and this haircut, it was a little distracting.

    We probably buy entire shopping trolleys full of groceries that cost less than that haircut. Costco trolleys, no less!

    The shoes don’t match the hair, the jeans, or the shirt. The shoes are more computer geek from the 80’s.

    But j’adore the Daryl, and Norman by extension. 🙂

    • NoGovernmentName

      Yeah, with all the bitching on hear about everything else, the only thing I find really repulsive in this photo is those shoes. Hideous, but maybe they’re his comfy pair.

  • He might be a mighty fine television hero, but in the dream boat category, he’s missing a few ingredients I promise you.

  • cornpicker73

    drool, indeed.

  • Damien W

    The mystery that is Norman Reedus’ hair has been a constant in his career. It goes back to the very beginning, with Floating and Six Ways to Sunday. It just ain’t gonna do what you want, so don’t ask it.

  • Imasewsure

    Don’t watch the show but this guy looks grotty to me. Love his little rescue Pug-Huhuha though

  • NoGovernmentName

    To me it looks like a hair style that grew out like 4 months ago and was never recut, so it works for me as Daryl’s hair. As Norman Reedus’ hair, well, it wouldn’t cause me to kick him out of bed for eating crackers, put it to you that way.

  • rumcg66

    I do hate the hair. But otherwise he’s SO dirty-hot. Mmm.

  • formerlyAnon


  • MsBusy

    No, never. Not with that hair and in such bad need of a shower. He looks disgusting.

  • miagain

    I’m not drooling… he looks gross and dirty….

  • nannypoo

    I, for one, am not drooling. He looks filthy, his clothes are a mess, his hair is ridiculous and his goatee makes him look like a vagina. The dog is not even particularly cute.

    • Jen

      stated so well.

    • harlowish

      Awww… say what you want about Reedus, but leave the doggie out of this!

  • Jen

    I don’t know who he is or why the male-inclined are drooling, but goodness that is a plump dog.

  • barbarienne

    Wookit the gweat big man wif the widdle tiny doggie! Squee!

  • LittleKarnak

    Love him but he needs a more manly dog…..and I have actually met him a few times and I can vouch for his clean smelling-ness….

  • julnyes

    I think this is the kind of post you have to watch The Walking Dead to get, so I’ll just slide on over.

  • Pennymac

    I noticed his hair last night as well. I thought it looked a little –colored–as well? But you’re right, le’sigh….

  • PastryGoddess

    Big men and little dogs are just weird. I fully accept that I may be crucified for that statement

  • MsOlympia

    Good god, that haircut is awful.

  • kathrineb

    Hair is the stuff of nightmares. I keep telling my boyfriend to cut his hair. This is why!

  • gubblebumm

    i love people who adopt the “ugly” dogs, there really isn’t such a thing, by the way…

    • RebeccaKW

      Animal Planet will sometimes air the ugly dog contest, usually won by a chinese crested. I watch those and think “those puppies are adorable, who would call them ugly?”

  • Vfor

    Darryl who? Boondock Saints irish brogue Norman Reedus 4EVA.

  • snarkykitten

    that’s a chubby dog :/

  • DeeGeeK

    You people sure are pretty hateful about someone you don’t even know at all. Shameful.

  • BookishBren

    I love me some Daryl Dixon. He needs a trim and I do like his hair better shorter. If you don’t think he looks good, google some proper pics of him, definitely from his modeling days. He is quite nice in a gritty way.

    • RebeccaKW

      Oooh, yes, ‘a gritty way.’ Perfect. There is just something about NR that makes this look work. As fine as George Clooney is, he would look a fool dressed this way. I do agree, though, that the shorter hair is better on him than this longer version, but I understand not everyone can get a trim every 5-6 weeks while on the run from zombies. Off to google some more NR pics.

  • ccm800

    Wow. That’s an ugly cat.

  • He doesn’t look dirty to me, just a little unkempt, and the hair looks like a Hollywood version of Redneck hat hair on someone who badly needs a haircut (If he hadn’t so carefully zigzagged that part it would anyway). That’s perfectly appropriate for the role he’s been playing so I’m forgiving. It’s always good to see a man taking such good care of an aging pet.

  • hailtree

    uhm, i’ll take Steve Yeun anytime. 😀 I like my men clean and smelling fresh, thank you.
