Posing for 's Don Bachardy


Don Bachardy has painted Bette Davis, Angelina Jolie, and Montgomery Clift, among many others, and now former CBS News reporter Itay Hod writes for The Daily Beast about what it was like sitting for the artist who inspired A Single Man.

Hod writes, "I arrived at his house as instructed and sat on the only stool in the room, the same one Angelina Jolie had sat on, naked, only a few years before. (I asked.) After a very short greeting, Bachardy got down to business. I gave him my most troubled expression, enough angst and anger so that he'd have something to work with. I was doing well -- or so I thought, until my body started to play tricks with my mind."
