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

Robert posted a video to Instagram of himself receiving a haircut from his children at home at the end of October ahead of the new film.

Talking to his children Exton, 10, and Avri, eight, said: ‘I don’t want to have to wear a bald cap, so will you guys shave my head?’

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

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

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