chainiewen said: Oh THANK YOU for speaking the truth. What you said about Gotts ruined Tom's beauty. I mean seriously, I just message the other blogger about how Tom looks like aging so much. How could no one notice that? Even the styling is wayyyy off. Why don't they just let the shirt hanging outside of his pants? Put slip it in. It makes his waist looks so short and kind of awkward look for a grown up man. They ruin my HIddles!!! And Gotts have the gals to ask for more followers be4 he release other shot. Meh
I like the b&w edit better than the colored one, but he looks old in both. Which is not a bad thing, is just a fact. Not old like in “tired and wrinkly and ugly”, just old like “hey, he’s not twenty anymore”. Still sexy though. The b&w one sort of looks like a modern greek statue.
Which edits are we talking about?
The “Save the Arctic” photo:
Wow, I actually haven’t seen this. It’s fucking bad lighting and REALLY bad photoshop. Seriously, what the fuck is up with the weird desaturation on his skin?
Someone (or a lot of people) colored it. I like the colored one, but the saturated one makes me think of a modern greek statue, an Adonis Tom… I like it.
I’m sorry. When I first saw this, I was not thinking old, wrinkled, bad lighting, crappy photoshopping. I was thinking Arm Veins, nom nom neck, and how fast could I get that belt off.I was thinking the EXACT SAME THING
Yes! I think Tom looks amazing. And so he’s got a few laugh lines? Big whoop. Still sexy as hell. He’s still human. And yes, he will get older. If we’re all about embracing our own imperfections, each other’s imperfections, we need to embrace his too.EXACTLY! That’s why we’re BFF,beautiful! 😽 He still LOOKS GOOD. And he’s my sisters age…and my most recent exs age…and Kat Dennings is my age and they went out… And there I go again…off on a tangent… STOP IT BRAIN! YOU HAVE NO CHANCE WITH HIM. Aargh
Wait, someone is upset because he has laugh lines?? Have they even SEEN ho much this man laughs and smiles and just enjoys the everliving hell out of his life? And rightfully so! To me, his lines make him beautiful. They tell a story of how hard he’s worked to get to where he is in his life and his career and how much he had enjoyed every moment of it. I hope my lines portray that same lust and joy and zest for life. He is damn beautiful, and I hope we get another shot soon :-)that’s what I was gonna say!!! He looks AMAZING! And laugh lines are a sign someone is enjoying their life!!!! I still think he’s one of the most(if not the most) gorgeous men I’ve ever seen
Oh God, yes. Bring on the laugh lines. It means you’re happy and enjoying yourself. Far better than botoxed frozen-face. I think he looks stunning…
If he’s old… man, there’s no hope for me. I could have been his babysitter when I was in HS.
Um…he’s not a spring chicken. Boyfriend is pushing 34, y’all. Nothing wrong with aging. He is STILL as fucking beautful as always. IMHO that shot is sexy as hell.
I know. I’ll be 40 soon enough. 34 is the right age guy for me. Seriously. Old enough to know what he’s doing, still young enough to do it (and more than once).
Hellllllz yes. Old enough to teach an old dog a few newfangled tricks, amirite? Not that 39 is old, I’m 36 next month….
I cannot tell you how tired I am of all those “he’s aging so fast! He looks so old” bullshit posts. Get lost, you morons. Seriously. Just go away. He is 33 and looks his age. Nothing more and nothing less. If 33 is “old” to you and you would rather have baby-faced, wrinkle-free pretty boys, stick with, I don’t know, Justin Bieber or Harry Styles or whatever. Leave Tom for people that know a bit about life and appreciate the signs of it in one’s face and body. But here’s a newsflash for you: your pretty boys will cross 30 too. And they may not age well or gracefully. It will be funny to see you grapple with that. Tom has never looked better than right now, and that’s because you can see how comfortable he is in his own skin. And you can see how much he is loving his life, no matter how stressful or exhausting it may be sometimes. Every line in his face is deserved and earned. If you cannot celebrate that, then you are in the wrong place.
^^^^^ Reason #53 why I fucking love zhora-salome.
so I’ll just copy paste:
I have to say I really dislike that first shot, I think it’s horrible, everything, from the ridiculously boring posture to the editing and filters and I don’t know what’s been done to it. His face is ruined there. It’s not that it looks unnatural or anything, because I appreciate experiments, it’s more like…. the apathetic, divorced expression, bizarrely hooded eyelids… actually, if we look at it better, his naturally playful, storytelling eyebrows as we know them are here conveying a message of concern, sympathy (cover his eyes, you’ll see it), but the hooded eyelids are delivering disdain, arrogance, condescension - which is highlighted by the way his head is tilted.
I suppose it’s the clash of the two (was it the editing?) which makes me feel uneasy.
Also, I don’t think the lighting and the mentioned tilt of the head with the posture highlights best things about Tom’s physical appearance. And I don’t just mean that in a purely conventional, like sexy-bits-i-love-about-him way, but the sharpness of his bone structure, the certain elegance that comes naturally to him is totally killed here.
The only good thing about it is the cause mentioned on the shirt.
I’m not very impressed with this particular one, Mr. Gotts.
We’ll just have to wait for the rest of the shots. or that book you were mentioning.
