There’s a reason for Robert’s new look – his role in HBO’s The Sympathizer.

Robert posted a video on Instagram in which he got his children’s hair cut at home before the new movie at the end of October.

Speaking to their children Exton, 10, and Avri, eight, they said: ‘I don’t want to wear a bald cap so will you shave my head?’

The kids were then given a pair of electric clippers to shave off dad’s locks in the video, which was captioned: ‘Things we do for our jobs… and our kids.’

Robert debuted his shorter hair at a special screening of Sr, a Netflix documentary about his late father, earlier this month.

He was wearing a graphic print t-shirt and a navy blazer.
