Heb 4:15-16
New International Version
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin. Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Wow… that first photo…a rather scrawny look to him. His arm…and then the shirt looks too big.

What’s goin’ on, G???

@she: nooooo, I’m not the one celebrating, I’m just a guest. :-) Still trying to do something with my hair. *slouch* At present I look like a real easy lay, I don’t dare to go out like that. Next round with the blow-dryer. In the end I’ll don a ponytail and think of Mike Chadway “you look like you operate heavy machines or want to clean the cat litter”. :-)


Unfortunately if you want to quit or are trying to quit smoking, Italy is one of the worst places in the world, very heavy smoking culture.

You know in some pictures he can look thin, but in those wet suit pics, he looked very muscular. I can’t remember seeing anyone look that good in a wet suit…I hate he is smoking too for his health, but I know he will quit again when he is ready to do it. Just too much on his plate right now to try. I hope he enjoys himself in Ischia.

Peacesister, Nuts- I am glad it is not my imagination. I think he looks strange lately as if something is not right. I’m sure living in a fishbowl would play on your anxiety even if that is what you say you want with a career in the public eye. I hope he is able to find peace soon, maybe he can go home to Scotland and get away from the madness soon.

Okay I’m a fan hanging by a thread here. He looks like a dirt bag. Sorry girlies. I’m not feeling the hot. Dragons were never my taste.

He is looking unhealthy lately. Gee I wonder why???

It hasn’t come up yet on this thread but did on the last and has before. So I am going to pick a couple of nits before they appear.

Why do people criticize his hair? And his shaving habits? It should be clear that how an actor looks, hair long or short, dark or light, face clean shaven or bearded, can depend a lot on what role he is currently preparing for.

@she: I suspect there was a lot of money involved, and since it was Jennifer A, he may have thought (as did his agent, I am sure), it could be a good move. They never know for sure until there is a finished product, I am guessing…

They were not good together, although the shower scene is worth waiting for.

He has lost a lot of weight, for the soccer pic he just finished. About 15 or so pounds underweight for 6’2″, I think. Even his neck is smaller. But he does say he changes his body look all the time.


“@Sharp: Will you still think that he is hot if he will breath near you? I will faint…from the smell.”

I may offer him a mint but yeah I would. “faint from the smell”? That’s a little melodramatic isn’t it?

hellotheregb @ 07/09/2011 at 9:51 pm

wow I have been out of the loop lately. just passing by. he is not looking so great? last summer he was doing the sports car race etc. this summer back in Europe but not looking so happy…. I have not seen the last few threads will have to take a look.

I am really surprised about the actor of the year award. Cooty hunter? oh dear!!!

what year is he up for?

At old and she. I recall that the first talks between GB and JA were about a movie of “Goree Girls,” an extraordinary true story about women in a Texas prison who formed a band, learned to play instruments and became so popular on radio years ago that they became famous, some won their freedom, some got marriage proposals, etc. It’s a great story, look up the original magazine article and read it. You’ll be blown away. Hell of a great story. I don’t know that it would have been any good with the fluff-puff HW treatment it might have had with JA”s company, but the real story is a winner, and that was the project she originally enlisted GB for. I assume she was going to play the woman who organized the band and he the prison guard who helped her and whom she married. (And later divorced, but they probably would have left that out.)
It fell apart for reasons we may or may not ever know and suddenly they were doing Bounty Hunter. Who knows what backroom deals were made? What commitments? Whose money got involved? Who said no to the original project?

I’ve been told I am not a typical American moviegoer and probably not. I love movies like “The King’s Speech.” I loved “Dances with Wolves,” “The Whale Rider,” “Apollo 13,” “The Right Stuff,” I could go on, movies whether factual and historical or fictional that expose me to other cultures, history, real events. I am on the fence about “300″, there were good things in it but it was bottom line a comic book version of a major historical event in world history. there is a documentary that’s much more compelling, truthful and complete.

I was excited when I hear Aniston was going to do “Goree Girls” because it is such a powerful story (and if you just google Goree Girls you will find it) but wondered if she had the chops to pull off something like that. Or would it become frivolous and cute. Maybe suits with $$$ didn’t see it as “high concept,” a story from the age of radio. Well, it seems GB couldn’t get Burns going either.

It’s a truism that a lot of film producers and writers too put out popular schlock to raise the money to make the film they really want to do. Does GB have one in mind?

I think he looks great. especially in the third pic. why is that woman eating a pepper like it’s an apple? :-)

He’ got it all!! Talent (big time), brains (and then some), looks (most beuatiful eyes) and he’s funny (the rarest of all!!)
Go get them Gerry

Most need to know he is playing a role as a drug dealer turned missionary to refugee children in Sudan and needs to be, and look, in character when on set. He isn’t doing a cologne commercial here. :)
