Quote of the week: Bill Murray


Isn't this Bill Murray GQ cover brilliant? The 62-year-old actor looks very sharp, very Nick Wooster, with his slicked back hair and Burberry suit (the bra in his pocket is from Eres, if anyone's interested). As I haven't made any resolutions as such, I know it's good to take stock and embrace self-improvement, but I hate the gym and like to bookmark my days with a cup of coffee and a glass of wine. So, I'll leave you with a quote from the great comic actor (as Bob Harris in Lost in Translation), that I'm going to make my mantra for 2013:

'The more you know who you are and what you want, the less you let things upset you.'

And here are some more photos from the GQ shoot.





He looks a bit like Michael Stipe in the last picture, don't you think?

God, he does look great! Some people get better with age (lucky for us, huh).

This sums me up, too - "I hate the gym and like to bookmark my days with a cup of coffee and a glass of wine." Perfect!

Fantastic! I just love when style is shown through all ages, it just confirms that we can all be stylish at any age.

Patti said...

May I, along with Val, borrow that sentence about coffee and wine? It comforts me so. Bill looks great!

Kathy said...

He does look great. Perfect bookends to a day. In fact someone should make a version that actually held up books - would be very clever.

Fab article, actor and motto for life.

Ellen Arnison said...

Brilliant to see someone so comfortable with the age they really are - and looking rather wonderful for it too.

I love this quote and will join with you to make it a mantra for 2013...I also believe it to be true from my own experiences. I will always love Bill Murray...some of my biggest laughs occurred along with him on vintage Saturday Night Live. He does look great!

Lost in Translation is one of my favourite movies. Great post.

Thanks for reminding us the relevance of getting better with age. Murray proves that older is cooler.

WOW - what a transformation! I would never have recognised him. Totally agree that he looks like Michael Stipe in the last pic.

That's Not My Age said...

Brilliant idea Kathy - I'm on the case!

Jennifer said...

A bit Michael Stipe, yes, but the pose and glasses make me think of an early Elvis Costello album cover.
