Ewan McGregor at the “Mortdecai” Los Angeles Premiere

Posted on January 22, 2015

It’s happened, darlings. The day has finally come. There is nothing you could have done to prepare yourselves for this, so we suggest you just hold on to each other closely and help each other get to the other side of this nightmare.

Because Ewan McGregor is trying just a little too hard.

Don’t hate us for pointing it out, darlings. Hate the cruel world that forces us to do so.

We’re trying to point to the one element that pushed this a little too far. Is is the tuxedo pants? The biker jacket? The bow tie? The entirely-too-young (and flatly dyed) boy band hair? The answer is yes. It was all of these things in combination. With the exception of the Miss Clairol razor cut, he can still get away with wearing any one of these elements – and possibly even more than one at a time. But the combination of all of them is just a bit too much for someone of his age.

THAT’S RIGHT, WE SAID IT.

Look, he remains gorgeous and looks years younger than he actually is, but this is the equivalent of Sarah Jessica Parker when she went through that tragic period of wearing adorably twee little ballerina-inspired Carrie Bradshaw looks a couple years back. Even if you can pull it off, there’s a certain … loss that comes with it because everyone can see it’s just not as effortless for you as it once was. People get really angry with us when we say things like this but we’ve always stuck to our guns because true style means knowing what works for you and it’s simply a fact of life that as one ages, certain things either no longer work for you or don’t work for you in the way they once did.

Yes, he still looks cute and hot, but that hair and that tie just sent it spinning off in the wrong direction. He needs to lose them both. Especially the hair, which wounds us.

Oh, we’re in so much trouble now for saying this.
