We all know Mike Myers. How could we not — between Wayne’s World, Austin Powers and Shrek, he’s probably the most successful Saturday Night Live graduate of all-time, and a Canadian one at that.
We also have a certain image of him in our heads; can you picture him? Sure you can. Well that image was shattered, smashed and obliterated when he showed up at the State dinner alongside Justin Trudeau and Barack Obama on Thursday night. Because rather than the Mike Myers we’re used to, this one had white hair.
Yup, that’s right — stark white hair.
Not that we aren’t digging it. Myers totally sports the ‘do in a classy way if you ask us. We’re just kind of… shocked. It’s like going from brown to white overnight, without any of that classic salt-and-pepper sprinkled in between. That’s a lot to handle when it comes to recognizing one of our beloved icons.
It’s almost like he was wearing a wig. Um… was he wearing a wig? Or has he just been dying his hair this whole time and suddenly stopped? Or did he actually not dig that salt-and-pepper look on himself, and decide to just get it all over with by going completely white? Did something scare him so badly that his hair just randomly lost all pigmentation? What would Garth say?
So. Many. Questions.
Maybe he’s just been in hiding for the last little while. Because now that we think of it, we can’t remember the last time we’ve seen the actor out in public for something. Or on the big screen. Sure he had a small part in Inglourious Basterds, and showed up last year on an episode of Saturday Night Live. But white hair? Naw, that wasn’t a thing.
But we guess it is now. And good on him. With those glasses and that debonair look, we’d say it’s working for him.
