Eric Bana: Salt-and-Pepper Beard!

Eric Bana: Salt-and-Pepper Beard!

Eric Bana sports a little salt-and-pepper beard at the L’Oreal Paris 2008 AFI Awards at the Princess Theatre on Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.

The 40-year-old Aussie actor was accompanied by wife Rebecca Gleeson.

At the ceremony, the Australian Film Institute gave out awards to recognize excellence across the film and television industry, and to celebrate AFI’s 50th anniversary this year.

According to the Herald Sun, there was also a tribute to the late Heath Ledger from his family as they received the International Best Actor award on his behalf.

Heath won for his role as the Joker in the The Dark Knight and his sister, Kate, said: “It’s been without a doubt the most difficult year, losing such a loved family member. We are so proud of him and humbly accept this award on behalf of his beautiful daughter, who we will cherish forever.”

    I love Eric Bana, but my thoughts are with Heath’s family right now. This year has gone by too fast and I still haven’t got used to talking about Heath in the past tense. It’s like some terrible mistake. In my mind I know he is really gone, but I can’t accept it yet.

    I am glad he won this award. I hope they will nominate him for Oscar, too. He should get a best actor nomination, not supporting actor. The Dark Knight was his movie. Without Heath’s Joker, it wouldn’t have been as exciting. Heath is real quality. The best. R.I.P. Heath. Where ever you are, know that you are still loved.

    Excuse me but Heath Ledger would be nominated for best supporting
    actor …Christian Bale would be nominated for best actor..!!!

    It is terrible that they would spend so much money to make Batman
    The Dark Knight be nominated for best picture when only
    Heath Ledger should be nominated … forget about the rest of the
    cast… Aaron Ekhart , Michael Cain etc… don’t bother nominating
    it as a best picture when all any one wants is Heath Ledger for
    best supporting actor since he didn’t get it for Broke Back Mountain
    again best supporting actor nomination

    Why am I thinking Jared meant the black and white beard thing as a double entendre?

    why are we talking about Heath Ledger in an Eric Bana post? give this man some credit, he’s hot, a great father, a terrific actor, and not a drug addict.

    Chrissie Says:

    Well, I don’t know that Heath Ledger was a drug addict either. He may have been a little cavalier with his PRESCRIPTION drugs, but that doesn’t make him a drug addict. Very sad that he is no longer around.

    Anyway this IS meant to be about EB, and now for something totally shallow: I wonder why he is suddenly wearing a beard. He seems to only grow a beard for specific film roles, but I don’t think he is doing any acting at the moment. Anyway, he looks great as ever, salt and pepper and all.

    Just checked my post.

    I HATE those hypertext links. I did NOT intend for my post to provide links to two advertisements.

    I think this is unethical. I’d really appreciate an explanation as to why this is appropriate, but I guess this post will just be ignored.

    He looks hot. His wife is pretty, but I don’t think she’s pretty enough to be with him.

    Not that I dislike Edward Norton, but I liked Bana best as the Hulk. It’s a pity they decided to redo the whole thing, because Bana and Jennifer Connelly were right on target as Bruce and Betty.

    This is a great actor. See “Chopper” and you’ve got to respect the guy.
