Best known for his role as the cynical Dr. House in the drama TV show, heartthrob Hugh Laurie has recently agreed to become the male face for L’Oreal Paris Men Expert products, joining his fellow Hollywood stars Gerard Butler and Patrick Dempsey.
Laurie said “At first I thought it was a mistake, but then I realized that L’Oreal wasn’t looking for models but for people with strong personalities, who are worth it… and who aren’t afraid to proclaim that using cosmetics can be a very masculine decision after all.”
Indeed, the past couple years have seen a boom in the male grooming business. Laurie is arguably the best model to show that using cosmetics does not compromise masculinity.
Laurie’s role in ‘House’ is apparently coming to an end. He shared that “The end of the eighth season, right now, looks like the end of the show. That is as far as they have got me for.”
