Kurt Russell has to be one of the coolest American actors of all time. I don't know what the secret to the man's longevity is, but I think James Gunn's behind the scenes photograph of the actor sitting with Zoe Saldana and Chris Pratt holds the answer to that mystery. He just seems to never age and each movie he does, somehow he seems cooler.
At first glance, yes, the picture just looks like a telling sign of a generation gap. Saldana and Pratt are typing away at their phones; I mean, they each have an adoring public to keep happy on social media. Russell appears to simply enjoy a nap. Hey working in show business is tough work, long hours and sometimes very little time to get in a proper nap.
But take another look.
Tiny. Hairdresser. Everything makes sense now. The confidence that Kurt gets from carrying around a miniature hairdresser to keep his thick locks looking perfect in every scene, no matter where he's shooting, is what gives him the edge over other actors. We knew something was off, cause you just don't get that sort of wonderful Kurt-Russel-hair without some sort of secret technique!
OK fine, it's definitely a depth perception thing that's going on with the photo, but that hasn't stopped me, and a bunch of other people online, from wanting this theory to be real. Pretty much everyone is buying in on it.
People even started coming up with their own theories. We wish some of these were real cause they're so good.
While others dreamed about having their own lilliputian hair stylist.
Lots of people were also impressed with Kurt's nap-taking abilities.
Must be nice to wake up and never have a bad hair day.
