The dreaded sensible hair might’ve struck again. I got it cut last night, not crazy short, just what I imagined to be kind of choppy and sassy but once again it’s dangerously close to that mom hair. Not any mom, though. I keep seeing shades of Teri, Jack Bauer’s now long dead wife with a touch of the salty-peppery-golden Matthew Broderick as shown in those recent photos with his surrogate babies (the color, obviously not the sideburns).
Men on TV are so rarely paired with short-haired women. I don’t think if Jack Bauer were real that he would have a wife that looked like Teri. A more recent mismatch is also short-haired Nurse Jackie with her Queensy bartender husband. I didn’t even consider the age difference (this was pointed out on Gawker, and really? A woman being six years older than a man–the actors are six years apart in age–is a gap to be remarked on? Would anyone ever comment on a husband six years older than his wife?) the issue; their styles and personalities are what seem incongruous.
