According to Discover magazine*, George Clooney and Catherine Zeta-Jones cut their own hair. Can this really be true? Is it written into their contracts? ("Mr. Clooney will perform his own tonsorial duties.") And why? Are they paranoid? Do they fear a barber will slit their throats?
Does this happen? Do George and Catherine have inside information you and I are not privy to? Are Hollywood stars often murdered by beauticians? Is this the real story of Heath Ledger — killed while having his bangs trimmed? Then did the powerful hair-cutting lobby pay off the cops to make his death appear like an innocent drug overdose? Because otherwise no one would ever go to the barber again?
Or are Catherine and George just plucky, independent spirits who love to do everything themselves — even though it’s essentially impossible to cut your own hair? (The latest mirror technology still cannot reveal the top of your head.) Do they also sew their own shirts and bake their own bread? Do they paint their own houses?
And are George and Catherine getting better at hair-cutting? Do they ever trim other people’s hairdos? Do they plan, after they retire from Hollywood, to go into the lucrative barbering business? (Does anyone retire from Hollywood anymore?)
And why those two out of the whole pantheon of Hollywood stars: George Clooney, the "sexiest man alive" (twice) and Catherine Zeta-Jones, the "Cleopatra of Wales"? Do they believe, like the biblical Sampson, that no one else must touch their hair? That their vast personal powers derive from the follicles on their head?
