RGIII Is Spending His Honeymoon Learning About the Largest Painting at the Louvre

The Louvre might be the last place you would expect to see the Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, but today the 6-foot 2-inch tall football player was spotted checking out the Louvre's largest painting, The Wedding at Cana by late-Renaissance artist Paolo Veronese.

RGIII visited the Louvre during his honeymoon with his new bride Rebecca Liddicoat, a trip that started in Saint-Tropez last week. Today, the couple browsed the galleries at Paris' iconic museum. The Washington Post wrote of a photo of Griffin and his wife (tweeted by a fan), "I think it’s time to admit that RGIII has some weaknesses, and dressing himself is one of them."

Well-dressed or not, the newlyweds are seen discussing Veronese's gargantuan masterpiece, which depicts Jesus's water-into-wine miracle at a wedding.  It's pretty cute that the couple is looking at a wedding scene on their honeymoon. But who is the white-haired mystery man gesturing wildly at the painting?
