6 Owen Wilson Color Coordinates With His Posters
Either Owen Wilson is obsessive-compulsive about colors matching or he's trying to blend into the background of his posters like a chameleon. It started all the way back in the military drama Behind Enemy Lines and continues in his present day comedies.
And in Drillbit Taylor, which falls into neither category.
For Midnight in Paris, he even wore yellow pants and a blue shirt to match the Van Gogh painting used in the background -- they tried a Picasso first, but Wilson's body parts kept painfully shifting place.
But still, this is clearly a deliberate aesthetic choice -- it's not like he actually has mutant powers that allow him to blend into any environment, right? Except that, even when there are more people in the poster, he's the only one who matches the background.
The costume designer who gave him bandages that didn't match was summarily executed.
A red, black, and white jacket in Starsky & Hutch, a blue shirt in Hall Pass, and a green coat in The Darjeeling Limited (the beige shirt is probably a printing error). And then there's the poster for How Do You Know:
You may recognize Jack's expression as classic "I have 12 Oscar nominations to my name, and yet here I am" disdain.
Now, that's impressive. Here we have four characters: two who don't match the background at all, one who is vaguely in the same color family, and then Wilson, who appears to be wearing a shirt made out of the curtain he's standing in front of.
This just makes us appreciate Wilson's accomplishments even more: It must be hard to get noticed in Hollywood when your greatest talent is to not get noticed. This might explain why they snubbed him and he didn't even appear in the posters for the Night at the Museum movies.
But wait a minute ... who's that down there, wearing an outfit matching practically every color in the poster's shifting background?
It's Owen Wilson, right? Right?
5 Christian Bale Can Only Let You See His Right Eye
When you're an internationally adored actor, it's hard not to become a bit vain. When you're also Batman, it's impossible. Case in point: Christian Bale knows which one of his eyes is more attractive, and that's the one he wants to appear in all his movie posters.
Twice, if possible.
Seriously, the dude has something against his left eye and has apparently banned it from promotional appearances. It's not like this is the result of a Tom Cruise-like obsession with only showing his face from a certain angle, because Bale has employed many different eye-hiding techniques over the years, from covering it in shadows (as seen above) to just turning his head.
It doesn't matter if he's fighting robots in the future ...
There's no face but what you make.
... performing magic tricks in the 18th century ...
We can make do with just the right half of Scarlett Johansson.
... starring in serious historical dramas ...
... or singing and dancing in while delivering newspapers ...
And trying to nail his best friend's sister.
... he'll only let us see one eye. Wait, is the other side of his face horribly disfigured? Do they have to digitally alter it in movies?
The left side of his face features a deformity known as a "second dick."
