Walton Goggins’ Justified character is absolutely fascination in its evolution. The Boyd Crowder we met in the pilot episode of Justified — the character who was originally supposed to be killed off — was a rocket-launching, born-again white supremacist. Over the course of the series, however, as the audience became more invested in Boyd Crowder, he’s evolved from a racist miscreant to a charming anti-villain who, at times, borders on anti-hero. Ahead of the debut of Justified tonight, the man behind Boyd, Walton Goggins, gave a fascinating interview with New York Magazine (read the whole thing), but the most fascinating tidbit is Goggins’ affection for sprawling, old-school pubic hair on ladies.
From New York Magazine:
“Can I tell you how much I miss pubic hair?” Goggins confides. “My mom was a bit of a hippie, and I grew up seeing it on her and her sisters. It’s so beautiful, so feminine. To me, if the size of a penis dictates virility, the length of a woman’s pubic hair dictates her femininity.” I suggest that this might be a minority opinion in the era of the Brazilian. He shakes his head. “Men don’t even want hair on their bodies anymore. What’s going on? We’re animals, man! It’s really f*cking weird.”
There’s a lot to process and unpack from that statement, but I’ll let you all draw your own conclusions. I don’t know what to think about Walton Goggins’ tastes in pubic hair, but I’m glad he said it, and now I’m awfully curious about Ava Crowder. The scene from American Pie 2 is likely the closest we’ll ever get to finding out.
