Shakeaspeare's True Portrait

According to scholars, this is what Shakespeare may have looked like after all.... more a handsome bard than the "hippie uncle — balding, moustached, longish hair in back." we usually imagine. This is may be no less than "the only true likeness we have of the greatest writer of the English language" (Time)
(looks smart too - must have to do with the large forehead....)

Doesn’t look at all as I pictured : older, short and strong, broad head, black beard and curly hair on the shoulders. Not a handsome man in fact but it doesn’t matter, does it ?
