Random Photos Part One - With Several Reader Photos

So, today, and for the rest of the week I have several reader photos for each day. If you want to have your photo in the big reader photo spectacular on the 4th, then make sure you e-mail me your reader photo by Thursday.

Why not start out with some Sean Connery. You really just can't say anything bad about the career of the man.

When you see a photo of Brendan Fraser these days it really is like your own front row seat to a mid-life crisis. I think he is going to be the James Woods of this generation.
Barack Obama made an appearance at the Pride Parade in New York. His face seems oddly enlarged.
You don't know this is do you? The man on the right is Benny Andersson. Still don't know who it is? I'm disappointed. ABBA. Executive Producer of Mamma Mia.
With anyone else, you would think the smirk would probably be interpreted as they think they are better than us. With Andy Samberg and Seth Myers I think it has to do more with one of them probably just farting.
The lovely, and I mean lovely Alexis Bledel. I can assure you that unlike Ben Affleck there has never been and never will be a blind item about Alexis.
If this was the only photo I had seen of Charlize Theron in a month I would say she's pregnant. Of course it could just be the fact she is standing next to the very pregnant Camilla Alves who is going into the 14 month of her pregnancy and her baby daddy Matthew McConaughey.

Chris Rock - San Juan
Well one can't say that Colin Firth's wife Livia doesn't have a sense of humor. At least I hope that is what she was intending.
Don't make me go through all of it again. This time it is Bjorn Ulvaeus. We really need to talk about your suit though Bjorn. I'm thinking Dancing Queen and the whole Mamma Mia thing have made a few bucks so maybe take more than $10 and spend it on a suit. You know I love you and so don't want people to laugh at you.
Bat For Lashes - Manchester

Eva Mendes has made this Monday a much better day.

Dita von Teese looks great. I notice that when I haven't seen her in a few months and then she is out again, she is always a breath of fresh air. She is just so unique.
The one and only Dominique Swain.
Do you feel like you are watching the start of Iron Chef? "Who do you want to shave against? Today's ingredient is papaya juice. Who will use it to shave the smoothest?"
Yes, D.B. you were in Eight Men Out. We got it. We also see that the uniform doesn't come close to fitting. Of course compared to the Grey Goose straight out of a bottle drinking, linen suit destroying Jeremy Piven you look like a million bucks.
Liv Tyler and her half sister Chelsea.

"For those of you who guessed that I actually died four years ago, you are correct."
The damn I'm a good looking couple photo of the day goes to Luke Goss and Anna Walton. You can claim your prize by looking in the mirror.
Who the else brings you Jeffrey Tambor? Larry Sanders show on DVD. Memorize them and your life will make sense. Not really, but I wish it were true since I have them memorized.
Josh Kelley - Chicago
I know, I know, and this was just the semi-final. After yesterday Princess Letiza probably had an orgasm. It's like a Christmas miracle in June. She's alive. She's alive. Thanks vicy.

I think this is the first time for Peter Berg in the photos.
Pierce Brosnan and his very lovely wife.
Olivier Martinez. So do all of you see in him what Kylie does? At this point she is practically stalking him so what is it about him that makes her do it? He kind of looks like a French David Spade to me.
I really thought about putting Meryl Streep at the top, but I think she has been there before. Plus, she made that film with Roseanne Barr so there needs to be some type of consequence for that behavior.
Our lovely reader is the one on the left.

Our lovely reader and breast cancer survivor.
This reader has been around almost from the beginning.
Unlike say, Jessica Seinfeld, Rosie actually did all these crafts with her kids and other kids and the kids from down the street. The woman loves crafts.
Radiohead - Manchester
S-C-I-E get the point.

Vanity Fair has their annual, take the young people out and show the world who is going to be shoved in their faces for the next few years issue. Their main criteria seems to be that someone is young and has a film or hit television show already out or about to come out. In this photo, from L to R, Amanda Seyfried, Emma Roberts, Blake Lively, and Kristen Stewart. I do encourage you to go to their site and look at the interviews. It is pretty easy to spot who the obnoxious, spoiled ones (Olivia Thirlby) and the "hey, she's down to earth" people are.
Kind of makes the two lumps I did with my bucket as a kid seem pretty insignificant. Well actually much of my life is pretty insignificant so why should a sand castle be any different.
I don't know how Selma Blair ended up at the bottom. Sorry Selma.

Selma Blair's hair is perfect for her face. She looks so tiny in that photo though.

love the princess.

I know Ent used to have a policy about only one photo per band. But I'm glad he brought back Bat for Lashes.

Charlize def looks preggers.

So Ent knows Lauren Graham *AND* Alexis Bledel. Must have some connection to Gilmore Girls then...

And I don't care what anyone else thinks, even with that scruff, I think Seth Myers is the hottest man on SNL right now.

RagDoll said...

Umm, maybe Selma's 1970's cocktail waitress-pantsuit (don't try to pee in a public bathroom, Selma, take it from me) getup landed her at the bottom. Naaah. Not with that bod...

Wow, our readers!!! A blonde with ELECTRIFYING gorgeous eyes, A BC survivor with a megawatt grin, and a sexy redhead. None of you guys stay single for long, huh?

I think Mrs. Brosnan looks beautiful!! And I love her dress, but I HATE the star-print. A gorgeous peachy-coral color would have rocked, with her hair color and skin tone.

Anna Walton looks like she's about to throw that drink at us. DUCK!

Meryl Streep looks fab....

lutefisk said...

Keeley Shaye Smith has a beautiful face. Not sure what's up with the massive weight gain.
This is the best Selma Blair has looked in years--I guess divorce agrees with her.

Kristen S. said...

"You really just can't say anything bad about the career of the man."

I beg to differ:

"I don't think there is anything particularly wrong in hitting a woman, though I don't recommend you do it the same way that you hit a man. "

"There are women who take it to the wire. That's what they are looking for, the ultimate confrontation. They want a smack. "

Mother Campfire said...

Are you insane? Selma Blair looks freakin' awesome. She's always thin. She actually has some color, people - let's give her some credit.

My goodness Liv has a LOT of random and beautiful siblings. Bitch.

I thought The Piv was overdosed by now.

Um, since when are we nice to Eva? Has hell prozen over? Are you on your death bed? WTF?

And are you calling Alexis boring? I'm sure there COULD be a BI about her, you just dont want to out her pervy/abusive ex, eh? Chicken.

Unknown said...

Sean Connery is known to be a sexist douche, but that has nothing to do with his amazing career.

Ent, have you SEEN Unfaithful? Watch it again and don't get all distracted by Diane's hotness and you'll understand the Olivier attraction. He's top 20 in my book.

Anonymous said...

More Peter Berg!

Ms. Taggart if You're Nasty said...

He said "the career and the man"...and I could find bad things to say about his career, like how he can't be arsed to learn any other accent except Scottish, much less another language.

SisterMaryHotPantz said...

Wow, how did you get an avatar???

I saw Will on 60 minutes last night and he was somewhat of an egomaniac. It made me not like him so much. He must be hanging with Tom too much.

Derek Jeter is easy on the eyeballs.

Yeah for musician photos!

Unknown said...

dagny, dude, no. it says "career of the man." but let's not argue semantics here.

and sure, i might be a bit biased b/c i met the man in the Bahamas and my bf has a man crush, but COME ON - it's Sean Connery. I rest my case.

califblondy said...

I saw Unfaithful and honestly didn't get the wife cheating when she had Richard Gere for a hubby.

Love Selma's jumpsuit. Not everybody can get away with that look, but she does it very well. I had a flashback of my disco days and trying to get the zipper down and wrestle out of a skin tight jumpsuit so I could use the restroom. I barely made it.

Unknown said...

califblondy- you take Gere, I'll take the hot French hit it and quit it

Inger said...

"Vanity Fair [...] It is pretty easy to spot who the obnoxious, spoiled ones (Olivia Thirlby) and the "hey, she's down to earth" people are."

LOL. Helloooo, Emma Roberts! ;-)

Do you agree?

Ariel said...

Aw. I love Brendan Fraser. Be nice.

Emobacca said...

How much work has Liv Tyler done on her face? She looks hideous.

califblondy said...

It's a deal, Marisa. Hot French guy is okay, but always looks like he needs a good scrubbing.

Gorgeous reader pictures again. Fess-up people, Who are you?

Best wishes to our breast cancer survivor.

Unknown said...

califblondy- i'd give him a good scrubbing....among other things

kimmypie1 said...

You can tell Eva is off the coke, she has life in he eyes again. Not that dead eyes look. Good for her.

OG Gossipmonger said...

WHAT!? ent!!! i love the movie She-Devil!!!!!!! meryl streep should never apologize for that masterpiece!!!!
actually, i have it, & i think i shall watch it tonight! said...

Heart the reader pics. I want to know who it is that has been here almost from the beginning. I thought I was the seniorest member now. (in more ways than one)

The Bjorn guy just needs to invest in an iron and things would improve about 90%.

Ellen said...

OMG!! Luke Goss from Bros.

I loved me some Bros in the early-90s. Now I need to go dig through my cassette tapes. (yes, cassette tape!). Man, I hope I still have it.

Also, props to Keely!

WineGirl X said...

Olivier Martinez won me over after seeing "Horseman on the Roof". Seriously. O...M...G!!!!

Moonmaid said...

You have some extraordinarily good looking readers, Ent!

Colin Firth's wife is nearly as good looking as him, but that dress is ka-way-zee! But she is smart and gorgeous, so I am sure she was just having fun.

Unknown said...

Props to Pierce having a normal looking wife, and a cute one at that. Oh, you know what I mean, if she was an actress, you know she'd be sticking her finger down her throat.

Yeah we haven't seen Dita since...since those 8 or so pics during the Cannes week a month ago.

JJ said...

Wow, I am so honored! There's my picture! All it took was having my boobies cut off.

Much love Enty.

lutefisk said...

JJ--I'm glad to see you looking healthy & happy in that photo--I didn't know who it was--I start radiation tomorrow, so I always like to see the sucees stories!

JJ said...

Good luck Adrian. I'll send you positive vibes. I was bawling my head off in that picture.

lutefisk said...

I'm sorry--it looked as if you were smiling with the sun in your eyes.
Thanks for your good wishes!

duncanpowers said...

I hope the girls at gofugyourself get a hold of that Mrs. Firth photo. That's just an abomination.

I read in the paper today how the Smiths denied they were opening a Scientology school, because, hey, their teachers are of all religions, just like KatE is still a Catholic, and it just happens to be Scientology methods in every class. But it is NOT a Scientology school.


Winston Ono said...

Good luck Adrian!
Selma is hott!
Does anyone know where the picture sand castle is from?

lutefisk said...

Thank you eileen :)

Keeley Hazel has thyroid issues, hence the weight gain, I believe she declined the surgery because she did not want to risk dying and leaving behind her family.

Amy said...

I don't care why Mrs. Brosnan gained weight, they are both awesome people and gorgeous to boot!

Of course, they will soon start gay rumors about Brosnan for having a normal looking wife... just like they do with Hugh Jackman.

DetroitRocker said...

Olivier Martinez in Unfaithful was so dirty hot, he was the perfect french gigaloo for that back room affair. Of course his pants looked like they could have stood alone in a corner. But, yea I'd stalk him in a minute. He was just having a bad picture day here.

Richard Gere was the american gigaloo in his day. If I had to pick which one to have an affair with in my dreams, it would be hard to choose.

Of course this would only happen in my dreams, and after Big Al Bundy falls asleep. mmm it's my dream. I don't have to choose, I can have both Richard and Oliver.

lutefisk said...

Thanks Badfish-- I never heard that about her. I've heard a few other things, but never about the weight gain.

Unknown said...


My thoughts & prayers are with you, my dear.

lutefisk said...

Thank you Marisa--I am very fortunate--I only ended up neeeding radiation & tamoxofin, so I am extremely grateful to find this out after having a date last month to start chemo. I am just trying to look at it as a daily inconvenience for the next 7 weeks, & then I can go on with my life after a winter & spring from hell!!!

junglekitten said...

It's quite odd to see yourself on your favorite blog!!!!! Thanks ENT!!! You're the BEST!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Good luck Adrian and good for you jj.

Lainey has a BV- Just The Way She Is- that basically outed Pierce and his wife. He loves her and is faithful but according to the BV she swings both ways. Im pretty sure thats the way it went anyhow.

libby said...

yes, Betsy, she gave a clue the other day to the "Just as she is" blind item. It was Hawaii.

Keely Shaye Smith and Pierce Brosnan live in Hawaii.

She had a t.v. career---She was on "Unsolved Mysteries" back in the day.

She got married, had some kids, and gained weight. So the F. what?

I have always thought she is absolutely beautiful, and it's really obvious in all their "candids" that he genuinely loves her, just as she is.

I'm genetically thin myself, but Pierce is a REAL man---he married the woman, not the 25-year old body.

(It's no secret that many, many men LOVE BIG GIRLS!)

Anonymous said...

Thanks Libby for the help with the BV especially for a newbie but lurker. Here it is if anyone was interested:

I will always love that part in Bridget Jones’s Diary – when Mark Darcy tells her at the bottom of the stairs that she’s a mess but still he likes her “very much… just as you are.” And that little song is playing in the background, cut to Jude and Shazzer contemplating the profundity of his words…


Some men are perfect.

And many find this man perfect. Dashing, debonair, scandal-free, which is why some of late have been questioning his devotion to his wife, baffled by the attraction. Still… he remains happily married and committed, he loves her just as she is, but it turns out, what she is is a girl who likes other girls. With his permission.

A classic marriage of convenience... their commitment runs deep, they care for each other dearly, but they just don’t sleep in the same bed. As for his preferences – oddly enough, he doesn’t seem to have any. The easy assumption would be that he meanders about like John Travolta at a massage parlour, which isn’t the case. Not even close. No affairs, no gay hook ups, nothing. Just happy that his wife is happy… true love indeed.

And before you go there, it’s not Colin Firth.

liveunderarock said...

Adrian & JJ, you both will be in my thoughts and prayers. I am sending you lots of good wishes and positive thoughts.

Even before reader photos we could see how beautiful you are through your words. I hope that everytime you two ladies look in the mirror you will see the beauty that we see in you everyday.

Jokerista said...

The princess actually jumped up fro her seat and cheered in one of the matches - dont remember which one, though

surfer said...

Great reader photos.

Adrian - all the best today. You're very strong, and have a great family, and that, will get you through the next little while.

Congrats JJ - I love to hearing stories of triumph.

lutefisk said...

Thanks everyone for your very good thoughts & wishes. Like I said, considering what could have been, I am very lucky that I caught it when it was just a lump, & never went any further. This will be nothing after waiting for each & every test result, & wondering if this was the bad news report.

OG Gossipmonger said...

adrian, now knowing your personal struggle makes me appreciate your sense of humor even more! you are a strong woman!!!! with kids in high school to boot!!!!!
May good luck always be with you! & I'll definitely be sending you good thoughts, like the ones I send our Affleck to help him kick the drugs!!! lol :):):)

ok, so i totally thought the radiohead pic was david cook for one second, HAHAHAHA. funniest part of my morning so far!

lutefisk said...

OG-- I am not that strong & not that old!! My oldest had just started H.S.
But when you look at a husband & 2 kids everyday, you have to keep yourself pulled together. And a sense of humor!!! It is very surreal, very out of body--you just kind of listen & kind of remove yourself from what they actually say to you. I am of Eastern European background, so right away you get sent for a test to see if you carry a gene for ovarian cancer & breast cancer--if you do, you get a double masectomy & a hysterectomy. You have your lump removed, lymph nodes removed, it's crazy. Then you have bone scans, cat scans, mris, xrays, you name it, they do it to you. Then the bills start pouring in. Then you get a date for chemo--but, I was able to have a very new test that tells you just what your treatment should be & your chance of reoccurrence--thankfully, I have only a 7 % chance with radiation & tomoxofin, & the chemo won't change that. So like I said, I am very lucky---AND--anyone who is due for a mamogram, please go--I had a baseline, & never went again because we have no history in my family of any type of cancer. If you named any other illness, I would have said OK, but never did I think I would be 1 in 8 women out there. So everyone--get checked!! Sorry to ramble--this was my public service announcement!!!!!!

bionic bunny! said...

and THAT, ladies and germs, is why adrian is my hero!

lutefisk said...

Buns!! I am so 'hoppy' to see you!!
I loved Tom's trailer.
