Damn, Tilda Swinton looks like a stunt double from Grumpy Old Men

Tilda Swinton is one of our finest living actors. Her performances have won her an Academy Award, a BAFTA, a European Film Award, and many more. She’s appeared in performance art pieces in the Museum Of Modern Art and elsewhere. She’s a fashion icon and has collaborated on high-fashion lines. She founded a film festival. She’s one of the most recognizable faces in cinema. So let’s just take a moment and think to ourselves, “Damn, Tilda, you look like someone who is still irritated The Lawrence Welk Show isn’t airing any new episodes.”


No, it’s not just how she looks now after enduring a Marvel press junket for Doctor Strange. Swinton is in costume for her newest film, a remake of the Dario Argento horror classic Suspiria. When last we reported on the film, it had been rescued from the jaws of certain death by I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino, who most recently helmed the delightful A Bigger Splash and is basically reuniting that cast for this project. Only it seems Swinton will look just a mite different than she did in that film. Here, let’s see another shot of her current appearance.

Good lord. It’s like someone fed Mitch McConnell through a juicer. Even her makeup job in The Grand Budapest Hotel was more recognizable.
