R. Linda:

Yesterday I got a comment that I must be jealous of Kit Harrington. I didn't put the comment up because I thought I'd rather write about it instead. I had said to a comment on me story (Stomach churning daydream of a conversation with Trump, Farage and wondering about Jon Snow's birthright - 28 June 2016) that Kit Harrington (Jon Snow) was hardly a beautiful face as the commenter had written. That person replied that I must be jealous. Hardly. I have seen Kit Harrington in London as I have seen Tom Mison. The long hair and scruff along with theatrical makeup make for rather transforming countenances. I won't stop there, but British leading men are more known for their acting talent than their looks. In this day and age there be much that can be done to match the talent with the looks. Plastic surgery, botox, makeup, and that's not just for the ladies anymore.

I find this subject superficial but being a male who does not bend to botox, plastic surgery and certainly not to makeup, and lets the perfections and imperfections hang out, I felt for the rest of the men with the exception of Wolfie, that I must stand up for us. I have not personally met all the male followers on me blog, so I cannot speak for them, but honourable mention goes to the Weasil being a "cutie" according to me wife, until you get to know his personality be full of impish mischief, along with the Captain that if you are a Johnny Depp fan and like the Depp features, than the Captain be a fine looking man. The rest I can rely on their blog photos, but I don't know for certain who be really good looking and who be not. That goes for the women with the exception of one blond from Scotland, that I have met. The rest I have not a clue except for Tonya who be the most beautiful of all. And Fionnula don't even start with me on what you look like because at the moment you look like a tossed salad.

So in defence of men everywhere, I want to show you what a little tuck, a little nip, a nose job, botox, facial hair (yours or pasted on), hair dye, and lots of theatrical makeup can do to make one "beautiful."

Let's start with the subject that brought this all on, Kit Harrington (Jon Snow Game of Thrones).

Nothing to write home about UNTIL
We sit in the makeup chair and BAM!
For those of us who suffered through Night Manager, there is Taylor Swift's new squeeze Tom Hiddleston who with makeup makes a convincing candidate to play the next James Bond or . . .  Hamlet.

Before

After hair, beard, and makeup - SMASHING right?
We are on a roll so why stop here? How about that Sherlock Holmes heartthrob Benedict Cumberbatch, hum?

Before
BOOM! Transformed into a handsome Daniel Day-Lewis look
Heart-throbs by all means once the slight of face is pulled. Here are the exceptions who actually have looks to start with and don't need a lot of the Hollywood artistry to enhance their "beautiful faces." Tonya pointed out Jude Law has a lovely face but a bad hairline and be a natural in the good looks department so no need to include him. However, here are a few who have a foundation at least to start with.

A remarkable actor, Tom Mison can be transformed into a sexy (according to Tonya) Ichabod Crane
BOOM! Looking rather good in Sleepy Hollow
Lastly the current telly dreamboat Aiden Turner, who plays Ross Poldark in what else? Poldark

Not bad but with a little scruff and long hair
Voila!

There it is, all the "beautiful" faces that make women swoon, and for the rest of us, we say, ah-ha we see what's been done, jealous? Think again!

  1. i have been told I resemble winona ryder but i could never see it. now i look, according to you, like a tossed salad lolololol but these guys are in the business of being other people and are not what they seem. i think deniro who isn't handsome seems so because he is a good role player. same with matt damon, he looks good because he can act good.

  3. Gabe, I cancelled my old account and will have to start over. However, I wanted to comment on your story. While it is true Kit Harrington is not the end all, his acting (I agree with Fiona) and onscreen charisma make him handsome. Tom Mison is wasted talent on Sleepy Hollow. The man is much more than that. Tom Hiddleston has a certain charm that makes him appear good looking as does Shetland's Doug Henshall. Plus he's a very good actor and conveys a certain handsome demeanour. Cumberbatch, you have to like him, he's got everything but looks, but his boyish charm is captivating. Aiden Turner, head turner, LOL that man reminds me so much of someone on your blog that I think he's very super chouette, tres beau! And Fiona you do not look like a salad. Change your picture dearest.

  4. LMAO sorry, but I like actors for their acting some don't age well and after a few years, look like hammered poo. I like Tom Mison for his Ichabod and his hair ! And don't say winona. I hear that name, I think shoplifyer. I'm picky. You can lookiike quasimodo, but if you're smart. ..

    1. What would make you unique? If you resembled Speedy Gonzalez, that might do it.
