Balls To The Wall: Tom Hardy For ESQUIRE Comments (0)
  Tom-Hardy-Esquire-1 Tom-Hardy-Esquire-2 Tom-Hardy-Esquire-3

Tom Hardy is looking unbelievably hot on and in Esquire (May 2014). The magazine identifies him as genuinely dangerous and possibly the greatest actor of his generation. For some reason, they asked him to shave off his beard:

“We asked Hardy to shave his beard. His response: 'I ain't shaving my beard for you. To shave my beard off would be to cut my fking [sic] nuts off...and give them to you to sell.'”

I wouldn't sell them.

Chris Hemsworth Tries Getting F*cked Comments (1)

I prefer Liam, but damn, Chris Hemsworth gives him a run for the money on Esquire (September 2013).

In the interview, Hemsworth recalls his first job, as the father of "Captain Kirk" in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot:

"I got to crash one spaceship into another, which is undeniably fun. At one point, I was trying to react to the moment of impact, kind of throwing my hands in the air, expecting to be sent spinning forward. JJ. came up to me and said, 'That's great. Now let's try it with a little less flight and a little more fucked.' So thats what you sere in that moment, me doing my best 'fucked.'"

The $15 Million-Dollar Man Comments (1)


Bradley Cooper and his magic hair take over Esquire (December 2012). Anyone seen him in Silver Linings Playbook? Totally Oscar-worthy and his acting chemistry with equally Oscar-worthy Jennifer Lawrence is phenomenal. A truly offbeat and interesting film.

Cooper says of his $15-million-dollar payday for Hangover III:

"It's afforded me the ability to do the five movies I did between Hangover II and Hangover III. And you can solve people's problems. To be able to say to someone, 'You know what? I'm gonna buy your house for you. You don't have to worry about your mortgage anymore.'"

Hamming It Up Comments (0)

Jon Hamm Esquire

Devilishly handsome Jon Hamm, 40, is on the cover of Esquire (March 2012), in which the writer fawns over him the way I might were I to be assigned the gig. Some tidbits—he taught high school drama in '95 to students including The Office's Ellie Kemper, he's been pals with Paul Rudd since high school and he once auditioned for "Jack Donaghy" (Alec Baldwin's role) on 30 Rock.

More pix here.

Robyn Crawford—Whitney Houston's former assistant and beyond a doubt her former lover for many years—has contributed a truly touching and honest piece about Houson to Esquire via Tom Junod. (Ironically, the man behind the infamous "Kevin Spacey Has a Secret" cover in which he openly talked about the actor's glass-closeted existence in popular culture.)

Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Asshole Comments (5)

My main man James Franco looks dapper on Esquire (September 2010). Inside, he says that when he showed one of his student films at NYU:

"It got a little ugly. One faculty member—she's always tough on me, but she flat-out called me an asshole. She jumped me. She was muttering it the whole time: What an asshole. What an asshole."

Several more pix of this gorgeous, artsy-fartsy (in the best sense) asshole after the jump...

Please Do As I Say & I'll Do As I Please Comments (2)


Newt Deep within Esquire's eye-popping (as opposed to eye-rolling, though there is plenty of that, too) profile on sure-to-be 2012 presidential contender Newt Gingrich is a fascinating, honest and insightful exchange he had with his second wife after she found out he intended to repeat history and divorce her for a newer model.

He'd just given a high-profile speech touting family values when second wife Marianne Ginther asked him point-blank how he could give that kind of speech in light of what he was actually doing in private. Gingrich, she remembers, said:

"It doesn't matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live."

Wow...that completely sums up all the hypocrisy of our leaders (not exclusively, but especially, the right-wing ones) both political and religious who do as they please while asking us to do as they say.

And this clown is back to haunt us a legitimate potential candidate for the presidency.
