Taking Nitty Gritty Too Far

man scratching hair[The Mirror] Which celeb took the nitty-gritty of his persona a bit too far? I hear he was sent home from a modeling assignment in Paris after bosses discovered his barnet was infested with lice. Eeeew!

BG Note: “Barnet” is short for “Barnet Fair”. Barnet Fair is Cockney rhyming slang for “hair”.

    I’m going to say that this is the new face of Dior, Robert Pattinson. Think i saw a new pic where his hair was cut super short…

    • Lou12

      Pattinson doesn’t fit the clues. He hasn’t done any modeling gigs in Paris. The only modeling he’s done was for the Dior shoot, and that was in New York.

      It’s more likely to be one of the celebs who visits Paris Fashion Week, or one that lives in Europe and would shoot over there.

  • Vinnie

    Maybe Rob P.?!

    • senseandsarcasm

      Makes no sense. He hasn’t been to Paris. The modeling he’s done for Dior was done in NYC and completed back in December.

  • wfreshie

    how do you not know you have lice??? no guess at this time

  • kitteekat

    Has to be Russell Brand

  • 4sixx2

    Depp modeling? Maybe a magazine cover during his Tonto Tour…

  • ILoveLucy

    Robert Pattinson. He just did a modeling gig for something . This is disgusting. But has to be him. Ewwww!! U better do a reveal.

    • Kekskuchen

      how is having lice disgusting? you don’t get them from being dirty, you get them from being too close to someone who has them. Kids often get them at school. and before they spawn, you usually don’t notice. I mean the lice not the kids.

      • ILoveLucy

        Well, hey, they DID send him packing. Doesn’t sound like they were too thrilled either. That stuff jumps onto others who share seating, clothing(photo shoot), stand very near each other, share pillows etc. It’s disgusting that he he has to know and yet exposed others to it. And clearly he IS a dirty bird. I know kids get it at school etc. But he’s a knowing adult. & that, to me IS disgusting. His hygeine is the worst. His B.O. is legend.

    • senseandsarcasm

      He did a gig for Dior in NYC back in December. He hasn’t been to Paris lately. Sorry, this isn’t him.

  • ValleyOfTheGalls

    Robert Pattinson. He’s a really dirty smelly guy. Cute though. I thought of Joachim Phoenix at first but the blind is too British.

  • ethel skinner

    Russell Brand?

  • real313

    Rob pats.

  • dorrie

    Johnny Depp, because of that accent used in the Pirate movies.

  • scumby

    Russell Brand?

  • bbel

    Rob Pattinson

  • sabrina325

    Rob Pattinson?

  • lobsterbabe

    Robert Pattinson?
    He just became the new face for Dior and he has be known to be dirty

  • FreddyCellophane

    Wacky Joaquin Phoenix

  • byjove

    Danny Dyer

  • clarkster

    Robert Pattison (Dior) He looks like he has fleas, so why not lice?

  • dorisday

    Rob Pattinson

  • mrsjaymack

    Robert Patinson

  • mizzavrid

    Ewww, maybe Johnny Depp?

  • suziq24

    Robert Pattinson

  • mads

    Russel Brand? Picture reminds me of Noel Fielding though.

  • lily is my puppy

    All I can say is: Ewwwwwww!

  • kbd61186

    I’ll guess Robert Pattinson since he’s British and seems dirty and has been doing modeling lately.

  • CanaryCry

    Rocker or actor?

    I’d guess Pete Doherty.

  • dannygirl

    It’s Pattinson. The guy in the pic is wearing Gryffindor colors and that was the house that he belonged to in the Harry Potter movie.

  • kisstew

    You have to be clean to have lice they won’t go in dirty hair so who ever is saying its a dirty person is wrong it’s some one who has clean hair. But as for a guess no clue but grossed out that wrong

    • mcwmomma

      this is true. lice do not like clean hair.

      • bamazalea

        Lice do not like dirty hair. When there is an outbreak at school, we don’t wash the kids hair, we mousse it and gel it and braid it every morning to keep the little critters at bay.

  • LeahLynn28

    Must be Robert Pattinson.I heard he’s not exactly clean,doesn’t like to bath and stinks very bad sometimes.He’s a cute guy,but has bad hygiene.And that’s sad.
    But lice…?One word…ewww!

  • tru leigh

    RPatz for sure.

  • VodkaSoaked

    Ian Somerholder was seen in Paris recently. And he does come off as a bit scruffy, IMO.

  • slantrhyme

    If it’s about a filthy celeb, people will guess Johnny Depp but I am quite sure he smells like lollipops and rainbows and roses and moonbeams. In my dreams.

    I will say Russell Brand because just looking at a picture of him I feel like I’m crawling with lice.

  • PinkCrayon

    Robert Pattinson. Eww.

  • january

    News for you folks. Dirty unwashed hair does not equal lice. Trust me. I am a hairdresser and I’ve had prissy people dressed to the nines arriving in their fancy car sit in my chair. I had to send more then one ( privately) on their way to take care of their problem before doing their hair. That being said. I would guess Johnny Depp. Sounds like him.

    • MademoiselleRose

      January is right – lice like clean hair. I’ve never had it, but I know a lot of people who have – it quite often comes to poor unsuspecting people via their kids at school.

      You are all barking up the wrong tree by picking actors you perceive as dirty.

  • flower

    Daniel Radcliffe. Any celebrity can model for anything, and the photo reminds me of him. He has a history of addiction issues, maybe he was in a rough place at the time?

  • lily is my puppy

    A lot of times people get lice because their kids get it from another kid at school. That happened with friends of mine. So perhaps whoever this is about has kids…. if that narrows things down any.

  • FairyMay9

    I love how it’s the Harry Potter talk that gets all the play. I’m not sure who, but the clue is fun, cuz a nit is a single lice egg. Dirty or clean, doesn’t matter. I’d never have guessed rPatz, but whomever now has the shortest hair, it’s him. Easier to cut it way off than to deal with the long stuff and get the nits out.

    FTR, he was Cedric Diggory, Hufflepuff, black & yellow, kudos to Cindy Louhoo

  • apeygirl

    Michael Pitt is the “face” of Prada menswear. Could be him and nitty-gritty could be referring to Boardwalk Empire and all the grittiness of that show.

  • JennyJustice

    Leo. Perhaps has was at a modeling agency to pick up his latest or just to scope, but he’s known to advocate a lack of hygiene.

  • DreamyVelvet

    Shia LaBeouf

  • kermit1969

    Clive Owen.

  • stacat1

    Has to be Pattinson.

  • dannygirl

    Cindy Louhoo is right. He was in Hufflepuff. My mistake.

  • guestimation

    I don’t think it’s rpatz, I agree with brad pitt.

  • JenJenJen

    Bradley Cooper? He was in Paris recently

  • UKGoss

    Pete Doherty? He lives in Paris these days doesn’t he? Modelling, acting in films, writing scrips and making music apparently (according to a recent interview). And he always looks like he needs a good wash.

  • luv the beach

    not Rob. Dior filmed in NYC, not Paris. Depp for sure. he always looks dirty

  • Sarah_Says

    After a bit of research I discovered that;

    – Ian Somerhalder

    was in Paris recently! So – I will go with the sexy Vampire Diaries guy!
