This is how it should read:

'TORONTO, ON - SEPTEMBER 10: Badass Michael Shannon attends showbiz party he probably doesn’t even know the name of after a long ass day in Toronto, Canada dressed like the kid who kicked over your lemonade stand before insisting it ain’t no thang and skateboarding off into the sunset.'

Shannon is in Toronto for the film festival (TIFF) where his new film Nocturnal Animals is showing. He wears a Stetson in the film and usually turns up to premieres dressed like this:

For reasons unknown, however, at Toronto he went for a floral Hawaiian shirt, aviators, cut-off jorts, striped socks and mix-and-match Converse.

This person put it best:

This has to be my second favourite Michael Shannon moment, after his dramatic reading of a sorority letter (below).

As premiere outfits go, it tops even Woody Harrelson's PJs at The Hunger Games.

Nocturnal Animals, which was directed by Tom Ford and looks great, opens in UK cinemas on 4 November, 2016.
