  1. Jess, I believe this was taken just after he had a nervous breakdown. You can see how fatigued and worn he is here. Am I correct, or possibly mis-remembering?

    1. You are correct. This may have been the same day he met with the press and there were a number of still photos taken. Even though he manages a bit of a smile, there is a gloominess behind it.

  2. Thanks! Yes, there's something a little eerie about it.

  3. The smile kinda freaks me out because it isn't his usual big, bright smile. Its a half-smile, like something that he never wanted to put on.
