  • shoes4life

    He probably has the full beard for a movie role. Anyway, I like him he is a great actor climbing his way to the top role by role.

  • oo la la

    gorgeous sexiness

  • brutus

    I’m sure the beard is for a role. I saw Eastern Promises, but didn’t like it. He was good in it though.

  • yES YOU aRE

    I DONT UNDERSTAND WHY HE IS NOMINATED??? CAUSE HE WAS TRYING TO SPEAK RUSSIAN???? I WOULD UNDERSTAND IT IF HE MADE HIS RUSSIAN UNRECOGNIZIBLE AND WE WERE IMPRESSED BY THAT….BUT HE DIDNT..HIS RUSSIAN WAS ABSOLUTE CRAP.NOT EVEN ONE SINGLE WORD SAID PROPERLY !!! SHAME! THEN IF NOT THAT I REALLY WONDER WHAT WAS ABOUT THIS MOVIE??THE NAKED SCENE?

  • Kate

    id let him eat my baby though.
    history of violence bitch

  • http://the-grynne.livejournal.com The grynne

    He’s playing the father in the adaptation of Cormac Mccarthy’s “The Road”. I imagine that’s what the beard’s for.

  • Sara

    So Kate gets the award for most ignorant poster. Congrats.

  • jeeze

    Viggo is a great actor. I’m sure the beard is for some movie role or either that he rushed out of the house. Who cares, he’s still great.

  • Orange soda

    He is handsome, an awesome actor and awesome artist.
    He’s dressed very classic and gorgeous.

  • nana

    He is making the Cormac McCarthy ” The Road” and he needs the to look like a survior of the end of the world. He was playing a Russian mobster who is also something else, so the dual role was very exacting. It was alot harder to portray than George Clooneys role.

  • movie fan

    By the accounts of Russians, his accent and mannerisms are dead on. He was amazing in the role, but someone who screams in posts probably can’t understand subtlety. In any other year, he would have won, but Daniel Day-Lewis is a phenomenal actor.

    Viggo is so talented, and watching his face and eyes in a movie like this where so much is said without speaking, you need some intelligence to understand it. He is getting better all the time.

  • perceval viggo

    I agree Viggo is incredibly talented. I heard the same, that his accent in Eastern Promises was dead on. Plus it was much of his research that influenced many revisions to the script.
    The beard is surely for a role. I’m just wondering who the girl is, she was sitting next to him inside. I thought for sure he would have brought his son…

  • Ana

    wtf???!!!

  • lotte

    WE ARE VERY PROVE OF YOU IN DENMARK ;D..

  • Teri

    The young lady with him is his niece Sydney.

  • kim

    Why is Yes U R yelling?/
    if you don;t like his acting then don;t watch Viggo’s films

    this man can act.. he has talent in his pinky finger alone which can outshine other actors in La La Land..

    yeah the beard does not suit him but I am sure it will be off soon
    but he sure does ROCK!!!!!

  • http://www.bearotic.com/ Bearotic.com

    Viggo looks so hot this way!

  • DK

    I love Viggo….I loved him in Lord of the Rings, i loved him in History of Violence and now in Eastern Promises…he is a great actor, and those blue eyes are mesmerizing

  • sk8r girl

    I loved him in the lord of the rings. and no he dosn’t eat babies!
    Kate why do u question him?! PEACE OUT!

  • Moon

    Who is that gorgeous girl he took with him – someone mentioned his niece? What’s the story there?

    I guess he broke up ages ago from Lola Schnabel….he could say hi to her dad there though…..

  • sk8r girl

    HE IS SOOO CUTE. WHEN I GOT LORD OF THE RINGS I SAW IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. I LOVE HIM. HE ROCKS. WAS HE GOOD IN A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE OR NOT. I NEED OPINIONS PLEASE.

  • sk8r girl

    WHATS UP MOON. I HEAR ABOUT HIS NIECE TO.

  • sk8r girl

    hi moon!

  • sk8r girl

    :) do dat kirby dance! (>”)> <(“”)>

  • leigh

    Viggo is filming amovie in New Mexico called Appaloosa, which is why he has the beard. I didn’t think he’d win the Oscar for this performance, although it was brilliant. He is one of the finest actors working right now. He is unique, intelligent and extremely diverse. He is one of the few people in movies who I would love to meet, because there is nothing artificial about this man. He is a real man and stunning to look at.

  • me

    Hey if you guys don’t want him, more Viggo for me.

  • afan

    Appaloosa is a western that was directed by Ed Harris. It wrapped awhile ago. Vigo’s beard may or may not be from the film. But I do suspect
    that his long waste coat was a influence from having worked on the film in that period. The man has class, taste, style all on top of real talent.
    By the way his jacket is dark, dark green. Look close. But over all it
    reads as black. Subtle & sexy.

  • G550

    According to photo captions in news outlets , the (very pretty) girl is his niece Sydney. Don’t know if she is daughter of a brother or sister but she has the same chin as Viggo! What a cool uncle.

  • Tish

    The full grey-toned beard and the long hair are for the film “The Road” (also with Charlize Theron and Robert Duvall), whose filming will begin tomorrow, 02/27. Too bad that beard hides so much of him :(
    Viggo deserved this nomination so much, although it is a pity that the film was ignored. Viggo is a brilliant actor, and only he could nail that part!
    If it wouldn’t been for Daniel Day-Lewis, and the fact that Viggo once declined an invitation to join the Academy as a full member, I guess he would have won. The faces of the other non-winers froze when Daniel was announced, but Viggo’s lighted up.
    Viggo’s next film that will come to the screen should be “Good”, a blond haired, clean shaven, bespectacled German professor. I wonder how he dealt with that language.

  • rosanna

    Viggo, you are one fantastic actor, fascinating as well. and of course gorgeous

  • ASHLEYVANESSA FAN :)

    :O omg!
    wtf???!!!!

  • Micky

    I love him he was fantastic on Lord of the Rings and A history of violence.
    He is such a gerat actor and a talented artist.

  • tutu

    Thank you Teri! I’ve been searching all over for who the little girl with him at the Oscar’s was. I thought’ maybe she was a daughter. But a niece is close enough.

  • INXS

    but anywone knows who is the blonde haired woman in red dress that arrived with him and sydney ????????

  • http://uwrhfoklde.com ht78ufyugfyuyuie6ytytyftutu

    He is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hoooooooooooooooooooooooot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE U VIGGO!!
