POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Aldis Hodge of ‘Leverage’ on TNT
Q: On “Leverage,” your character, Alec Hardison, has a complicated romantic relationship with fellow team member Parker (Beth Riesgraf). How did you two first bond as co-workers?
A: We went shopping all day.
Q: You did what?
A: Hey, you know what, as a man, you have to understand when to give a lady her time. I like clothes. I’m a shopaholic. But trust me, if you’re a guy, learn a little patience. Learn to take your lady out. Me and Beth are friends, but when I do have a lady, treat her to her time, because then you get your time later.
She may get tired of me shopping. Put a Barneys in front of me, AllSaints, John Varvatos -- I will stay in a store. I like a European fit, not super-boxy clothes that just hang on you.
Q: So you’re not the sort of guy to wear an Ed Hardy T-shirt, droopy pants and a knit cap?
A: I love my hats, but the thing is, a brother’s got to be clean. If you’re a grown man, dress like a grown man. I love to be in a suit. I live to be in a suit. Give me any excuse to be in a suit, I’m there.
I’ve never been like that since I was a kid. I’ve always preferred a different etiquette when it comes to styling. But the whole droopy, baggy clothes, my mother never allowed that in the house. If your pants were sagging beneath your butt, you’re going to get popped.
