If Bruce Willis is the bald Jesus, Sir Patrick Stewart (yes he was nighted) is the bald god. He is mostly known for his role in Star Trek: The Next Generation, playing Jean-Luc Picard. For my money, he played a much better captain than that toupee wearing fraud, William Shatner.
In one BBC interview, Stewart discussed his balding extensively. As an aspiring young actor, he wore a toupee, but eventually ditched it when he realized it messed with his self confidence.
In Star Trek, Stewart’s character is highly cerebral. Everyone knows being bald is an advantage due to brain cooling. While a man with a full head of hair might overheat if he thinks too hard, bald men have no such problem.
With that shaved head, Stewart looks like a dude from the future. He has also played Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men series.
The bald look works white well for Stewart, which is lucky for him, because it looks like he lost his hair early on.
He looks like an absolute cheeseball when they make him wear hair for a role.
The latest Star Trek movie actually didn’t suck. I especially liked Zoe Saldana as Nyota Uhura.
She can beam me up anytime she wants.
