[ # ] Routh a Superdivo?
July 14th, 2006 under Kate Bosworth/Orlando Bloom, Superman/Spider-Man


As America’s favourite super hero, Superman is the epitomy of manliness. But it appears the actor drafted in to play Clark Kent in the new movie sequel is more concerned with his make-up than saving the world.American star Brandon Routh was left furious this week after he complained the make-up used on his face at a press conference made him look pale, artificial and ‘a bit wimpy’.The actor became annoyed when he saw pictures of himself posing up next to his Lois Lane, Kate Bosworth, who, he said, looked much more natural and sunkissed.After the Superman Returns press conference at London’s Dorchester Hotel on Wednesday afternoon, Routh’s aides had new darker foundation flown in for him to use in time for last night’s premiere in Leicester Square."To say that Brandon was livid with his make-up is an understatement," said an aide."The problem arose when he posed for photographs beside his co-star Kate Bosworth – who has a fantastic tan – and he realised that he looked pale and artificial in comparison."Basically there was a problem with the shade of his tinted moisturiser – it was slightly lighter than his natural skin tone – so he asked for an expensive fake tan moisturiser to be used instead."A waterproof, gradual build one which develops over time was eventually found and has given him a natural, all-over golden glow."This is Brandon’s first major movie premiere and in front of thousands of screaming fans, it is understandable that he wanted to look like a tanned, Adonis of a superhero and not a pale-skinned wimp."In stark contrast to his all-action counterpart, Routh refused to tackle the rather embarrassing topic head-on. Instead, he ordered his personal assistant to do it for him. So, within minutes the film company’s specialist make-up artist had been hauled in and instructed to make Routh more tanned.
