Post subject:  Mark Ruffalo's Sunglasses

Hi all. I'm new to the forums and have lurked for over a couple months. I've enjoyed reading everyone's posts about BB and look forward to staying up to date about Looper. Have yet to view Brick, but it's on my list of must see movies.

One question I've had since my first viewing of BB is, what brand of sunglasses does Ruffalo wear throughout the film? The costume design in the movie is absolutely superb. I'm a regular guy who could care less about my usual daily attire, but after I saw BB I had to get a hat and those shades! Any help?

Hey, GeekDrifter! It always pleases me when a lurker joins the ranks of Actual Real Posters on the forum. Welcome!

I think Rian or Mark said at some point that those were Mark's own sunglasses that he just happened to wear on set, and Rian liked them. Now, the question is this: after Joe wore his own shoes in Brick, does this constitute a "director trademark"?

Also: good call on the hat. I'd been meaning to get a porkpie for years, and Bloom finally tipped the scales. What did you get?

Here's a link to a (very) large screenshot that captures them well. I don't recognize them particularly, but as a refugee from the optical industry I can comfortably say the tint is classic "four year-old black dye faded to a weird shade of red", so given that, I'm slightly willing to bet that they're prescription. I say slightly because there's no distortion of his cheek through the lens, so the power of them (if any) is very very mild.

But the odder thing about that shot is that he's wearing a wedding ring. Subtle backstory or does he just never take it off, even while acting?

OH MAN I NEVER NOTICED THAT. I am now extremely tempted to rewatch the entire movie and see if he's wearing it in any other scenes. </ nerd >

Big thanks on the link Justin. I've been trying to find a good high quality image for closer inspection. Appreciate it!

Thanks for the welcome Sarah. It would be a unique trademark, but one I would assume actors wouldn't mind at all. People do some of their best work in comfortable environments. I have yet to purchase my hat, but I will very soon. I'll definitely post a pic of what I come away with.

I never noticed his ring either. Sarah I'm with you, I'd have to rewatch it again. I've seen this movie countless times and can't believe I never noticed that!

Everyone on set was drooling over those glasses. The lenses were (as far as I can remember) not prescription and they were definitely red red, not just faded black. Mark was mysterious about it. He said they were "custom made." I assumed this translated to "very very expensive."

Or "found in a thrift store" and he wanted to preserve the mystery.

I noticed you follow Rob Sheridan, so I just needed to tell you that I went to high school with him. Wacky!

Please return to your regularly scheduled Internets.

Now now, no one really cares who went to high school with whom around here. Has little to no bearing on things.

I know the costume design was completely phenononal, phenononal? Phenomonal. Gutted Beatrix Aruna Pasztor isn't working on Looper although isn't there a character called Beatrix? Anyway does anybody (Rian) know what brand those white shirts were with the two buttons on the collar that Ruffallo and Brody wore? This probably sounds really sad, but I thought they were really cool. 8) Thanks!

Are we saying he's a vampire? Is that the consensus? Because I'm definitely getting that vibe.

Thanks! I'm not sure the shirt brands, but at some point Beatrix told me how much one of Adrian's white button up shirts was and I choked. It was pricey.

Wait, you crashed how many Lamborghinis in the film and you choked over the price of a dress shirt?

That's what he's saying. Lamborghinis, pfah, we've all crashed a few in our day. Quality menswear? That shit'll cost ya.
