Charlie Day at the “Pacific Rim” Premiere

Posted on July 12, 2013

Drunken financial manager. Yeah, that’s a great look, Charlie.

 

Charlie Day attends the premiere of “Pacific Rim” in Hollywood, California.

He’d be perfect rocking a lighter version of Elijah Wood’s hipster nerd look, but we suspect it’d be easier to get him into a dress than into something so twee and precious. We can see he’s not a fashion guy, but our take is this: if you’re going to go to the trouble of wearing a suit, tie, and slightly uncomfortable shoes for pictures, why not wear something that looks good, rather than something seemingly designed to fade into the background. He looks like he’s working security at this event. See the guys behind him with the earpieces? NO DIFFERENCE.

For fuck’s sake, wear a purple tie or something. No one will think you’re gay. And neckbeards are still NO. In short, Willis it the Fuck UP,* boy.

      “Willis it the FUCK UP” is now in my daily speech…It sort of rolls off the tongue..

      • holzfaellen

        I’m just reading a German novel where the author is writing emails to
        Bruce Willis imploring him to save his main character from a tricky
        situation. Maybe he could also save people not only from burning houses but also from bad suits…

    • Squarah

      Don’t care, still adorable. Could only be made better if he was carrying his rat stick. /biased

          Or milksteak boiled over hard and your finest jellybeans, raw.

              Love all the Sunny nerds.

      boring…blah blah…neck beard…blah blah…

      Charlie – you inspire the blahs. Be ashamed.

    • kimmeister

      I suppose it’s an improvement over his wardrobe for ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,’ but that’s not much of a compliment.

    • xmixiex

      I LOVE HIM AND HIS SCREECHY AWFUL MELTDOWN VOICE.

        Does your cat make TOO MUCH NOISE????

        • Angela_the_Librarian

          ROCK, FLAG, AND EAGLE!!!

      • MK03

        THERE IS NO PEPE SYLVIA!!

    • hughman

      That suit should Die Hard. It makes his waist look like Pulp Fiction. You’d think his people would have had a Sixth Sense that this looks like Armageddon. The whole look is Sin City and makes him one of The Expendables.

      • MikeW_Vegas

        I see what you did there. Well done, sir!

      • Adriana_Paula

        Makes you see Red, don’t it? Makes me see Red 2.

    • kmk05

      Just saw the movie, and it’s made me crabby. SCIENTISTS WOULD BE FIRED IF THEY ACTED LIKE YOU ACTED, SO FOR THE LOVE OF WILLIS SHOW UP WELL-DRESSED TO MAKE UP FOR THAT SCRIPT. That’s a perfectly valuable £15.60 down the drain and that sloppy suit is compounding the pain.

      • MilaXX

        You pay that much for movies in the UK? yowsa!

        • kmk05

          It was in one of those megaplexes managed by Westfield, since they have the best 3D (which is the only reason to watch this movie, really. Why would you ever rent/buy it for your own small screen?). I am now even more annoyed since he was clean-shaven when running around yelling in the movie. Now that I can actually look at him in peace, I have to suffer this neck-beard and ill-fitting banker suit indignity.

    • MilaXX

      Come on now. You’ve had a regular job for several years now. You can afford a properly tailored suit. Willis it the F**k UP or stay home.

      • Airkisses

        he doesn’t even look like an actor/celebrity/famous person. He looks like any random schlub I might pass on the street.

    • Miss WKS

      Because I have only ever seen him in his TV show dressed like he just crawled out of a dumpster I think he looks fuckin DARLING here….

    • nannypoo

      I thought it was Steve Carell. Not a compliment.

      • HengRu

        My celeb connection was “Christian Slater with out-of-control facial hair.”

    • Rand Ortega

      WiTFU! That’s going on my tombstone.

      Not a Charlie Day fan, have a hard time w/ dirtbag comedy, like “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia”, though it does have moments; I did enjoy his slightly shrill performance in “Horrible Bosses”. I must admit I did not like him in “Pacific Rim”, but that’s probably because many of his scenes did not contain Idris Elba.

      He looks like his mother guilt tripped him & he fell into that suit.

      • kmk05

        Also because he was a terrible scientist. The person who wrote his scenes must have had input from the people behind the Prometheus crew.

      • Leigh David

        Worse, it looks like his mother picked out his suit. Dude, if you don’t want to wear this than at least WiTFU.

    • conniemd

      Apparently ties that are not black, blue or grey have gone out of fashion, alas.

      • sekushinonyanko

        Maybe the men are looking at the runway shows and going “oh gosh! I absolutely cannot buy any of that and recoiling into grey as a direct reaction to that.

    • kirkyo

      +1 for the sheepish grin. It’s like he’s silently acknowledging our judgment.

    • JauntyJohn

      You know we didn’t have to put up with this shit under the old Contract System.
      You reported to hair and makeup for your red carpet appearance like you did for shooting your scenes.
      Sure, it was a heinous, one-sided system, but our stars looked like stars!

      I’m just sayin’.

    • decormaven

      No joke, he could sub for security in a nanosecond. Not a good way to promote your acting career.

    • Sara__B

      Dull. Ordinary. Neck beard. NEXT!

    • Cynica

      He looks like he’s working security at this event. See the guys behind him with the earpieces? NO DIFFERENCE.
      Oh, but there is. Security took the trouble to freaking SHAVE.

    • Sushy Gooroo

      This is the “Funeral of my unloved mother-in-law of someone who usually never wears a suit” look

    • largishbearishAtlish

      Rare is it I find a man with a beard I don’t like…but I will actually PAY for the shaving cream for this twit.
      And what object is up his backside tickling his prostate? That is the only reason I can come up with for that creepy-icky “smile” on his face. (at least the guys in the back ground have something to do..this guy? no clue…).

    • putacorkinit

      I think you’re being too harsh. The only thing he needs to make that look work is a blue or briar rose coloured shirt.

    • jen

      Aw, poor Charlie. He’s new at this and looks like he tried. I love him.

    • altissima

      “See the guys behind him with the earpieces? NO DIFFERENCE.”
      I actually think the guys behind with the earpieces look better fitted and better groomed!
