Hump Day Hotties: The Men That Got Away (From Tom Ford)

I've already mentioned that the new Vanity Fair cover is, if "controversial", still completely traditional and par for the course: Objectifying women for the pleasure of men? Revolutionary! Still even if we've been there and done that 3 trillion times... it still works, doesn't it? As I said earlier it's hard to imagine them asking recently legal male actors to appear in their birthday suits. So for today's Hump Day Hottie, you choose. Here are five boys men who act and who were, like Keira & Scarlett born in the mid 80s and are therefore old enough to be naked on Vanity Fair's cover. Which one's shoulda stripped down with Tom Ford? Vote in the comments section.

How about Kevin Zegers who already exudes slut power (Transamerica), or the thinky/sexy brooding of Max Minghella (Syriana, Bee Season)? Maybe you love the energy of Billy El...Jamie Bell (King Kong, Undertow) or the bravado of Victor Rasuk (Lords of Dogtown, Raising Victor Vargas)? Finally there's budding thespian Lou Pucci (Thumbsucker, Chumscrubber)? So many choices for this alternate reality VF cover.



Previous Hump Day Hotties for your distraction... Capote Boys, "Starbuck", Newton, Rhys-Meyers, Penn,Madonna, Murphy, McAdams, Jake & Madonna, Bloom, "Lady Tottington", Craig, Viggo & Maria , Béart, Kaneshiro, Fiennes & Weisz

My friend nearly had an orgasm next to me every time Zegers turned on his promiscuous predominance in TransAmerica, so I am guessing she'd throw her ballot in his direction. He frightens me, frankly; he's way too much of a Leonardo DiCaprio doppelganger.

Oh and, ummm, so what did you think of Andrew Bird?

Victor Rasuk seems so cool! I keep on reading that he was in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Where was he?

Oh, and Lou Pucci is from a town within 10 minutes of my hometown. He went to highschool with a handful of my friends. It's strange to see him in films, even though I was able to objectively appreciate his perfectly angsty performance in "Thumbsucker."

Zegers should appear naked... anywhere

Zegers and Minghella-yummy...

Nathaniel, what a choice.

If we can't have all five on the cover I guess I'd have to go with Bell and Pucci. But if we can ditch that old queen Ford (who's starting to look like he's channelling George Hamilton) add the more deserving Victor Rasuk. Oh what the hell... throw in Minghella and Zegers on the pull out page.

If I didn't know you better, I'd say you have quite an eye for the boys.

Tough call between Zegers and Bell... Zegers is just plain sluttastically beautiful, and Bell... I don't know what it is that makes me like Bell... maybe that he seems more manly? Plus there's the "he played a gay guy's straight best friend back when he was not even legal" angle which is kind of dirty and kinky and wonderful... maybe it's the Billy character I respond to?

Regardless, though, I think Zegers has my vote... and I think he's more of a Michael Pitt doppleganger than a Leo one (and more attractive than either, frankly).

nick m... hmmm, i have to seee that slut power usually turns me on but in Transamerica he all but frightened me away

adam -he was? don't remember that.

david m -don't be knocking delicious Tom Ford of the chest hair and the taking-personal-branding-WAY-too-far by never appearing anywhere in anything other than a black jacket and an open white shirt.

an eye for the boys? what gave you that idea? heh. i'm just trying to point out the hypocrisies. and i think it's worth noting that these guys seem WAY racier to suggest going naked than Keira and Scarlett which only goes to show you how pervasive sexism is. Here I am gay, movie obsessed, and still feeling more prudish about suggesting 20 year old men go naked rather than 20 year old women.

adam k -i don't know who my second choice is. But definitely Minghella. *sigh*

adam k. said...

Wow, Minghella? I think he would actually be my last choice among the five, but I do see the appeal. Really, the more I look at them, the more I feel that all five are supremely attractive.

have to go with Zegers on this one...

wow you certainly ARE devoted.

Jamie Bell and Scarlett Johansson on that cover would've been awesome. Minghella looks okay, I have really no desire to see him naked. Very geek-chic though.

Kamikaze Camel said...

OMG JAMIE BELL NAKED NOW!!!

Whoa, sorry, i got a bit carried away there. And, yes, Billy being best friends with that gay kid was super adorable. The kiss at the end is just so smile enducing. Loves it!

I'd say Zegers but it scares me because he's such a Z-grade actor. Have you even seen Komodo?
