"Jude Law's First 100 Days As People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive."

"According to [Veronica Giulletti, associate editor of People], the Sexiest Man Alive receives the most media attention at the very beginning of his term. While some sexy men use the news coverage as an opportunity to introduce radical changes to their looks, Giulletti said that Law chose to stay the course. 'Jude came into office with a big, sexy plan in place, Giulletti said. 'He'd spent years tweaking and refining his dapper image, so it was wise that he chose to stick with it.'"

Nice to see that staying the course is socially acceptable again.

Synova said...

I have to say... he doesn't do it for me. I mean... really.

Synova said...

Sexy ought to mean... sexy. Like... sex. Why does it seem to mean metro? Or even, heaven help me, neutered?

Synova said...

Sam Worthington.

Or Zachary Levi when he's not playing a nerd.

Brendan Fehr.

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine or Van Helsing.

Sexy?

I'm no great judge of sexy men, but prissy is a better description.

Young John Wayne (I was watching Fort Apache last night) was sexy.

Jude Law looks like an overbred poodle

but hell, what do I know :)

"Who is Jude Law? Why's he in every movie I have seen for the last four years? He's in everything. Even in the movies he's not in, if you look in the credits he made cupcakes or something."

Chris Rock. Oscar Host routine. 2006.

I know no one else liked that routine, but I was on the floor laughing. Sean Penn was not amused.

The Drill SGT said...

Me thinks Synova likes her men with at least a bit of testosterone showing :)

Sean Connery could wear a tux with the best of them, but he was a man.

Ralph said...

So it's sexy to cheat on the mother of your children with their nanny? Celebrity forgives us our sins.

Synova said...

Oh... it's the ONION.

LOL!

As such, they certainly included this bit: ."Jude came into office with a big, sexy plan in place," Giulletti said. "He'd spent years tweaking and refining his dapper image, so it was wise that he chose to stick with it.". *because* this is clearly, entirely unmanly.

Yes, some testosterone ought to show, or what is the point?

Hm?

Its all about celebrity and People trying to find an actor and only an actor that their dwindling readership, targeting the person with model looks and in inch of acting or personal depth to their most shallow deographic of the age 8 to 24.
The people making the selections tend to be liberal, homosexual, and on the fringe of the Beautiful People in Manhattan and LA.

Imagine their latest prettyboy, Jude Law, paraded before a group of average women of all ages. Followed by 50 guys in Spec OPs, 40 guys who are entrepreneurs worth over 10 million (at least a year ago, that is) in their late 20s, early 30s. Followed by 10 firefighters from Miami, 30 MBA or law school valedictorians. 10 Aussie beach lifeguards, 10 Alaskan outdoorsmen, 10 European archaeologists, 10 recent male med school graduates. 20 Philadelphia garbagemen and construction workers.

Bar homosexual men from judging. (Tell them they get to judge the sexiest most chiseled gym rat or actor with shaved pecs the next week.)

Ask the women to vote on "Sexiest Man Alive" from their little parade of hunks.
My guess is Jude Law doesn't finish in the Top 25%.

As they say over at Ace of Spades...

I'll be in my bunk.

Ah, l'Oignon, ce qui explique.

Hé hé hé hé.

Hoosier Daddy said...

I'm no great judge of sexy men.

Drill Sgt, that great sound of wind you heard was the collective sigh of relief of every male commenter here.

Well ok maybe not every male ;-)

Christy said...

And I'll join Adam Baldwin in that bunk any time.

Johnny Depp has a fey vibe, but he is also tremendously sexy. YMMV.

I know I'm old because I didn't recognize half of those beautiful people in People.

David said...

I thought John Edwards was the sexiest man alive.

traditionalguy said...

David...LOL! Edwards hair won a separate prize in the Daddy's hair today but gone tomorrow category. But this is a Law Blog only.

Penny said...

Isn't anyone else surprised that Obama was not the winner? I think Michelle made the top ten sexiest women list.

NKVD said...

I am surprised that lard assed bitch didn't win the men's category, with her world famous arms. Huzzah!

Trooper York said...

What a crock of bullshit. Everybody knows that Meade it the worlds sexiest Man. Poet, gardener, and smoochy face all rolled into one.

traditionalguy said...

nkvd... remember that Michelle is First Lady and has not attacked anyone.... a little respect is in order under the Scalia rule not to go after the wife and kids.

Trooper York said...

Plus he doesn't tweak anymore.

Well at least since the Meth lab in Covington got busted.

NKVD said...

Good point - so I guess I can't mention the crack whore that Biden produced.

NKVD said...

Or Edwards' vomiting wifey. Reille threw up, too - only her vomitus was due to morning sickness.

Edwards makes plenty of people puke.

I can hardly believe I'm saying this...

That was the best Cedarford comment EVAR.

/lurk

MadisonMan said...

Can I just say something that some commenters have obviously overlooked?

This is from the Onion. From 2005.

Did I load the blog that time forgot by mistake?

Michael Hasenstab said...

Will there be an Althouse press conference on the first 100 days of engagement?

Synova said...

I did (eventually) notice that it was the Onion... didn't notice the 2005 part.

I imagine that someone has been google searching "100 days."

It may be old, but it actually was terribly funny to read about Jude Law and his "administration" and "leadership" choices in conjunction with the Obama "event."
