Deeply-creepy chest-hair advocate Tom Ford, who left fashion to make a movie then erratically returned to fashion (did he think we didn't notice?), will finally make his movie. Principal photography begins this week in L.A. and, interestingly, the production designers of AMCTV's "Mad Men" will be collaborating with Ford on the film's 1960's-themed look. From TheHollywoodReporter:
"Ginnifer Goodwin and Nicholas Hoult are about to make Tom Ford less of 'A Single Man.'
The pair join Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode in Ford's directorial debut, an adaptation of Christopher Isherwood's 1964 novel.
"Goodwin is Mrs. Strunk, a suburban mom who doesn't share her husband's dislike of their neighbor, a gay professor (Firth). Hoult will play Kenny, a sexually ambiguous grad student who shows an unusual interest in the professor."
And when that principal photography on that badboy begins, you can be sure Tom Ford's shirt will be unbuttoned to halfway to the waist. As Oxfordstudent wrote about his personal crusade to liberate men's chests, "Tom would appear at the end of each show with a liberally unbuttoned shirt, exposing his own mat of thick, perfectly conditioned black chest hair." Eew.
