@Weeny: I noticed that too, that in last few movies his robes were getting a wee bit tighter around the middle. Not that it really matters, so what if he has, as my mom calls it ’ a bit of tummy’. We still love him and his amazingacting. :)

@moglet, do you really believe that going to the gym several times a week is a sign of paranoia or vanity? I’d do it if I could only find the time! It’s all about staying healthy.

Just because I’m going to shave his head, doesn’t mean he won’t always be my little ninja love-monkey.

Can’t wait to see this flick. I would rather hear the soundtrack of this film than the bloat rock featured in ‘Rock Of Ages’. In fact, the reason I love punk and new wave is BECAUSE it was so much better than the corporate rock that was being played on NY stations around the same late 70s- early 80s period (amd it’s still being played there- thank God for CD burners). Of course, seeing Alan Rickman playing founder Hilly Krystal will be a treat, as well.

@Weeny, it was the combination of things! I know a few people who go to the gym, it rarely seems to be about fitness, often it’s about wanting to look good. It’s much cheaper to simply do plenty of walking instead of driving everywhere! (I know you go hiking, so I doubt you’d really need to go to the gym.)

However I was actually thinking in terms of those in the acting profession for many of whom body image seems to be the most important thing in life, but perhaps those are movie stars rather than actors. There is far too much emphasis on the way people look, I’m always glad to see people who don’t seem to worry about conforming. In much of European cinema there is a much greater range of different looks, many more ordinary looking people.

I was thinking about the whole ‘shaving the head’ thing; and I think that was a bit harsh. Instead, I’d like to take the wig to the Animal Rescue League, and find it a good home…much more humane.

@moglet, hiking does nothing for upper-body fitness, toning the arms etc., so I do need to do other things besides walk a lot to keep from getting flabby as I age. My gym membership costs me less than a dollar a day and I’m sure saves me much more in doctor visits. But I definitely agree with you about there being ‘far too much emphasis on the way people look,’ and that a lot of the blame for that falls on Hollywood – but probably the fashion industry even more.

Oh, I hope they are still filming in Savannah when I go there this summer!
