Stewart jokes about the trend of men shaving their heads when he said It was a nice thing for a while. But then I started seeing bald head people everywhere, and it really troubled me.
In an attempt to curb his insecurity about balding before he shaved it off, Patrick would wear a toupee to auditions and casting calls in the beginning of his career.
Patrick was convinced that his old toupee looked good, but he couldn’t back up his claim when the casting director at the National Theatre saw him auditioning in front of his idol – Lawrence Olivier.
