Shia LaBeouf brings back the slacker 'stache
There's a fine line between fuzz and a full-on 'stache. And Shia LaBeouf is pirouetting on the precipice. In this poster for the new movie "Eagle Eye," LaBeouf's sooty upper lip dominates. Look at every shot--from the center picture of him looking ready to rabbit punch someone to the shady silhouettes--and all you see is 'stache, 'stache, 'stache.
The slacker 'stache reminds me of those pervy guys in high school who lurked at the bottom of stairwells to catch a few upskirts. Or those dudes at convenience stores who unabashedly ogle Hustler. Does it make LaBeouf look tougher? Not exactly. Does it make him look older? Maybe by 11 months.
Over at bringbackthestache.com, a small but determined movement is growing...about as fast as LaBeouf's lip cozy. They also sell these cute tee shirts for $21.99. -- Monica Corcoran
