Paul Cram's Got An Ugly Face But Alright Body
What is a Chestnut Face, I wonder? I consider myself to be fairly well read, but I don't recall having heard this term before.
Do once out of the casting offices, I look online for the term.
The online Urban Dictionary definition:
A term referring to a man who has a hot body, but has an ugly face. It is a play on words, implying the phrase 'chest, not face', meaning his body is attractive, but not his face.
It is the male equivalent for the commonly used term "butter face" used to describe girls with attractive bodies and ugly faces. Both terms use a food word before the word "face", but sound like another word describing the looks of the person.
Though in the director's defense, he thought I was gone from the room when he made the comment.
Though I'll be honest, I do get a big grin about the buried compliment. Having been called Gollum before by a casting director- this seems to be a few steps up at least. And it is a great reminder to be kind with my own words.
