Nathan Lane’s eyebrows

You may be familiar with the actor Nathan Lane from The Birdcage or The Producers, or from his recent guest spots on Modern Family. He voiced Timon the meerkat in the Lion King franchise.

He’s in possession of an incredible pair of eyebrows.


The right and center photos reflect fairly common eyebrow positions - “normal” and “raised”. But the photo on the left features the Nathan Lane trademark eyebrow expression. The left eyebrow arches up and forward, while the right one dips inwards, giving a plaintive effect that would melt the coldest heart. (Melting hearts would be an awesome supervillain power, incidentally.)

If I had eyebrows like Mr. Lane’s, I might go for days without speaking, communicating only through eyebrow expressions.
