Sad Michael Sheen is sad in the first pictures released today from his upcoming film Beautiful Boy, so I’m not posting any of those (you can see them here). I want to see nice pictures.
I didn’t used to think that Tony Blair was sexy, but then Michael Sheen as Blair came along:
Not a lightsaber… but it could be (and Sheen is just the right age to wish it was):
I interviewed Sheen last year (and yes, I must get around to transcribing that and posting it), and while often the case is that you meet someone famous and they end up disappointing you by failing to live up to whatever absurd expectations you’ve accrued around them, this isn’t how it was with Sheen. He was exactly as thoughtful and as smart and as funny as I imagined he would be. And as himself — as opposed to to the characters he always disappears into, chameleonlike — he’s even more attractive, purely on a physical level.
He’s taller than I thought he’d be, too!
I’m posting pictures like these every weekday, of a man who is attractive and desirable, because I like to look, dammit — and because the female gaze doesn’t have to be such serious business.
(If you have a suggestion for someone we should female-gaze at, feel free to email me with a name or a link to a particular photo.)
