12:52 am - Ladies, is he really that hot?
So I'm watching a rerun of Saturday Night Live. Its hosted by Colin Farell. Pretty much every other joke is about how hot he is.

The other night beststephi and I were watching a Katie Couric special where they were talking about talking to kids about the fact that they're having sex younger than ever before (a rant I may save for another time). Katie was addressing the fact that the media is constantly bombarding kids with sexual images. The camera panned across a collage of magazine cut outs. Sexy swimsuit covers of Maxim. A sweaty shirtless Brad Pitt. Lingerie models. Usher freaking a girl in a bikini from behind. Madonna and Britney kissing. Huge boobs, legendary abs. And in the middle of it all...



a headshot of Colin Farell. Not in a sexually suggestive pose. Not modeling underware. Not making out with someone. Just a simple headshot. Apparently the NBC News braintrust decided that Colin sitting there smiling from a print ad was so unbarebly sexy that 15 year old girls are immediatly hypnotized into performing felatio on the nearest available penis.

So I'm wondering, is he really that hot? Seriously, ladies (or gentlemen, I don't judge). I mean, I'll even acknowledge that he's an attractive guy. But is he such the be all end all of sexuality that you swoon into such an uncontollable tizzy just at his smile? Does his smile really compare to Brad Pitts entire naked torso? If so, why? If not, is there someone who does? I rewound and watched the collage a couple times, and he's the only headshot there. There's not a single female one, there's no other male one. There are a lot of hot girls out there, but I can't think of a single one who would turn me on simply with a picture of their face. Am I wrong guys? I mean, I know the line is supposed to be that a woman's eyes are her sexiest feature or something like that, but really, be honest. If we're talking about a simple picture that's intended to titilate. Well, there should be tits in it, right? Guys like a nice rack. I'd think that something would be similar for the females as well. But I have a hard time thinking that the be all end all of sexuality starts at Colin Farrell's neck and goes up.

Honestly, when I see him I just think, "that there is a walking infection of herpes."

*shrug* anyone want to help me out here?

EDIT: Also, is there really anyone out there at all who gets excited by the beginning of the Arena Football season?

Oh Gawd.... I think I'm gonna need a tissue.

Is it me or did someone just mention "Arena Football"?

yeah... ummm... eww...

Given that it was NBC, it was probably shameless cross-promotion for Colin being on SNL. I just finished watching SNL. Colin's got a nice accent, but he's not in the same league as a shirtless Brad Pitt (especially, a la Fight Club).
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 29th, 2005 - 10:23 pm (Link)
if it was, it was really subtle. Really, I don't think it was though. Everyone is constantly going on about how hot he is. He gets a lot of hollywood tail too. He's probably more famous for that than he is for being an actor.
[User Picture]From: stephtoth Date: January 29th, 2005 - 11:51 pm (Link)
While Colin doesn't do it for me, I will admit that certain faces/personalities/smiles do, equally as much as I imagine a nice rack would for most guys. Ewan McGreggor comes to mind, and (somewhat younger) Sean Connery when I'm in that mood. Cuz, you know, guy's bodies just arn't that attractive. You got to go for the personalities, smiles and accents, it's about you've got going for you. ;)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 06:10 am (Link)
yeah, I mean I see your point. But it just struck me as odd that he was the only one. There were other men in the collage, mostly shirtless, but he was the only one that was just a head shot.

Thank you.

And then the image became too much for her, and she went off to find a 15 year old boy to make a man.

he's no davey jones, but he is kinda dreamy in a bad boy kinda way.
[User Picture]From: mamarayne Date: January 30th, 2005 - 12:14 am (Link)
That's exactly right. He's cute, but the appeal is in the Bad Boy persona. The girls know that he has that rep, so all they need is to see his face. They know the rest.

I would, if we still had the Gladiators. Arena Football rocks.

Eww. Colin Farell looks like archetypical guy at the Mc Donald's asking " Do you want fries with that?"

Sorry, I just don't see it. Now Kenneth Brannaugh, that's a sex symbol ;)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 06:19 am (Link)
So, is Kenneth hot enough that you'd be turned on by just a picture of his face?
[User Picture]From: pointparker Date: January 30th, 2005 - 06:36 am (Link)
I watched that snl too... and yeah he's def as hot as everyone makes him out to be. I don't think a picture of him would make me run out and have sex w/ someone, but a good-looking face is all a guy really needs. (Nice abs and arms and other stuff is just icing to the cake) And he's no brad pitt.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 06:59 am (Link)
thanx for answering. I'm sure jasongory is sitting around someone cursing Brad Pitt at this very moment.

So the question is, I'll buy your comment that a nice face can be sexy, but can a guy be sexy without a nice face. Some guys will use the term butterface for a girl where she's not all that pretty but has a killer body, can the same be true for a guy? Will you, as a girl, look at some boy and say "well, he's ugly, but look at those abs and arms. I'd hit that?"

Posting that picture must have been a reference to the fact that he's a slut (look, kids, boys sleep around too!), and not that he's that hot. He's certainly not good-looking enough for the face alone to do it. There're only a very few guys who can achieve that status, and they have to be making some other face than the lovable-boy-next-door-who'll-screw-anything pose. Now Gael Garcia Bernal, that's a different story ...
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 08:06 am (Link)
to be fair, they didn't explicitly make reference to Colin in anyway. I just happened to notice him grinning in the midst of a collage of sweaty glimmering naked flesh, and he stood out to me, because he wasn't.

Anyway, so are you saying just that Gael García Bernal is hot and that you'd jump into the sack with him at the first available opportunity, or are you saying that Gael García Bernal is so hot that seeing him makes you want to get laid with anyone half way decent just to quench the insatiable thrist in your loins?

nbc news is crazy.

colin's hot, but he is hardly driving people into spontanious orgasm with a headshot.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 08:08 am (Link)
well of course not. If he were, then the kids wouldn't need to go out and have the sex. They're just saying that once you see him, then suddenly you need to have the sex. I hear that seeing Colin Farell's face is the number one reason that 14 year old girls blow R. Kelly and then let him pee on them.

Ok, I might have made that up too.

is he really that hot? ... is he such the be all end all of sexuality that you swoon into such an uncontollable tizzy just at his smile? Does his smile really compare to Brad Pitts entire naked torso?

i read this entire message out loud to my girlfriend, and when i reached the portion i've just quoted, she was nodding and saying 'uh huh" to each of the questions.

i myself totally don't get it... but i've been informed that his accent is hella sexy, and also allegedly the more you get to know about him the sexier he becomes, because his personality is very sexy (in a just-doesn't-give-a-shit kind of way, also i guess the bad-boy thing that was mentioned in previous comments, theoretically a mother-complex kind of thing where one may hope to be the one to turn him around or something.)
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 09:59 am (Link)
wacky. Keep your girlfriend away from him. I'd hate to see you end up with syphillis.

See, that's the thing. I think Carmen Electra is sexy. I've seen pictures of her naked and I think "wow" I'd hit that. Or something along those lines. And yeah, the sex-kitten repuation probably helps that somewhat. But if you're asking me which of these pictures turns me on more:



 
Full BodyHead Shot


It's unquestionably the one on the left. Even though she appears to probably be more naked in the one on the right. The one on the right is a better photograph. She has better makeup. etc. I just don't think that a simple headshot is all that titilating. The full body shot isn't the sexiest thing ever either. But, it at least feels a little naughty, whereas the headshot feels like something she'd send in because she's trying to get an acting gig.

Nope

no colin farrell is not that hot. hello he needs to do something with his eyebrows and what does he think he can just roll out of bed and not shave and every girl will swoon for him? let me tell you sexy med are humprey bogart, carey grant, and sean connery..they are actually reeally men men not ohh look at me men. as for a picture of females to cream over i like a nice rack but in this day and age they all look like mchookers or mcsluts r'us. the women have to use there racks or kiss other girls to get attention. the two females i cream over just to see her face is marlene deitrich or maybe mamie van doren( she just had to lick her lips in front of the camara for 10 minutes and every seat could be wet). so see there are females out there that a head shot could do for any guy its just they have been forgotten because those stars are long gone.

Re: Nope

eh... see... even with the women you mentioned, I don't so much get excited by their head shots as their body shots. No matter what she's doing, with a head shot, I'm much more likely to say how pretty the girl is than how sexy. That may just be me though.
[User Picture]From: marmal8 Date: January 30th, 2005 - 09:49 am (Link)
I'd hit that.

Well, unless there was a potbelly and crabs attached to it. Or a nasty attitude. But the smile suggests he's friendly.

The full body shots are nice to look at, but I wouldn't say they turn me on. Neither does the smiling face.

But I'd still hit that, given the opportunity.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: January 30th, 2005 - 10:12 am (Link)
dude... he would so give you crabs...

oh, and that's not the exact same head shot they had on TV. I just found a random headshot of his to show my point.

Nice head shot

I was going to say I have no idea what girls see in Colin Farell. But that's a pretty cute head shot! Honestly, though, I don't find him that attractive. Paul Rudd on the other hand... sigh! So, yes, nice eyes, hair, and smile are required; a guy's body just has to be not bad.

Contrary to what the kids on Dateline said, I do think images in the media influence desire. Watching the Young and the Restless as a kid and, later, reading Cosmo influenced me in terms of what I thought was acceptable (despite my parents' strict rules).

Re: Nice head shot

Noooo... another one is turning.

Yeah, I think obviously kids (and adults) are going to be influenced by culture. But its a feedback. Culture and the media are also reflections of the people. People aren't just becoming more sexual because there's sex in the media. There's sex in the media because people are becoming more sexual. The problem is older generations have a natural inclination to stave all progress and change. Its a survival instinct. Animals fight to maintain the ecology in which they have thrived. So while younger generations attempt to adapt to the changing world around them, older generations will try to maintain their environment as it always was. Of course this is all just conjecture on my part. I wish someone would give me a grant.
