Agreed. But in this case the actor in question does want to express it. If he didn't, he wouldn't wear the clothes he wears. The actors don't work for the publicists, the publicists work for the actors. The publicist might suggest something, but that's about it. Usually, (as in this case) the actor decides at least the direction they want to go in, and then things go from there.
