Where's Colin Farrell on the list of '10 Worst Movie Hairdos'?

Alexander_lThe Screengrab recently posted a list of the 10 Worst Movie Hairdos, prompted by Javier Bardem’s No Country for Old Men ‘do. And while it’s true that the bargain bob in question obscures the actor’s stone-cold hotness, I’d hesitate to file it under ‘Worst.’ After all, Bardem created one of the most frightening characters in recent screen memory with his Oscar-nominated turn, and his hair contributes to the overall mood, whether or not anyone ever goes into a salon and asks for "The Anton Chigurh."

I think The Screengrab’s list should have focused more on the kind of hideous that looks so wrong and incongruous that you end up skipping the movie (or failing to enjoy the movie) because of it. For me, the best recent example has to be Colin Farrell’s blond catastrophe in Alexander (pictured). What was that mess all about? And while we’re on this hairy topic, who else should’ve made the cut (badum-bum)?

    When you mentioned Colin Farrell, I immediately thought of Brad Pitt in Troy.

    Just watched Faye Dunaway in the original Thomas Crown Affair. Fantastic hair, but very unrealistic and very distracting.

  • Joey Jo Jo

    Josh Hartnett’s bed head in everything.

    Angelina Jolie in “Life or Something Like It”– and yes, I had to IMBD Ms. Jolie to recall the name of that stinker, yet the hair I remember, so go figure–think really bad Marilyn Monroe wannabe.

    antonio banderas – interview with the vampire

    Do you even have to ask? Nicholas Cage’s slow and horrifying arc of hair recession throughout his movie career is the hands-down winner.
    Or, wait…loser.

    For sure Hanks in Da Vinci Code. If we’re lucky, the hair won’t be making an appearance in the sequel.

    I totally second Angelina Jolie in that hideous movie. Ugh!

    Holy crap, thank you for posting that link. Something like 8 years ago, when I was around 14 me and my friends happened on a movie with Mexican gangsters running around shooting everybody and kidnapping people and human sacrifices and nudity and it was the most bizarre thing we’d ever seen, and we never knew what it was called. It made quite an impression on me back in the day, and it has haunted me not knowing what that moive was. But now, thanks to that link I know it was “Perdita Duranga.” Awesome.
    And if I had known that before I saw “No Country” Bardem would have freaked me out even more.

    Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing–1980s hair in a film set in the early ’60s.
    Bill Murray’s hair in Kingpin was pretty terrible, although that was on purpose.

    I can’t believe they didn’t add Tom Hanks in Da Vinci Code. That was 50 times worse than Nick Cage’s hair in National Treasure (which I really don’t think is so bad).

    I think Cara is absolutely right…the prize has to go to Nicolas Cage for his most recent work (especially “Next”). Any inclination I may have to actually see that movie goes away anytime I see his hairdon’t.
    As for the female division, I’ll just go off the top of my head with Julia Roberts in “Mary Reilly”.

    As much as I loved Dances With Wolves, Stands With a Fist’s hair was completely distracting throughout the movie – it’s always a big rat’s nest. There is even a scene with her brushing her hair before her wedding, but it’s still a rat’s nest during the ceremony… Could she not figure out how to brush it because it was different from everyone else’s in her tribe???
