Oh, Rupert! Et tu?

In the category of crimes against men, I present the case of Rupert Evertt. I have always thought he was handsome, and as he aged, well, it was like fine wine. Then I saw the picture from Star recently and it stopped me in my tracks. Have you seen this?

ย OMG! Can you believe that scary, line free fellow on the right is our Rupert? I sort of sobbed a bit, and then thought that whoever did this, whoever suggested that this was a good idea all ought to be taken out . . . well, taken out somewhere and left.So last night as I was writing late into the evening at the local B&N cafe, I was sitting looking directly at the magazine rack and what faced me? This issue of Esquire with George Clooney’s face, unadorned and aged perfectly.
This picture had me dreaming of Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, and Clark Gable. Guys who only continued to get better looking. Guys who never went under the knife to chase after something elusive, something that eventually will catch up with you no matter what you do.I have only one thing to say to George: Please don’t. Ever.

Well, I supposed some things need to be said twice. What do you think?

    What a shame! He looks likes he could be anyone, as if he’s a person without a past, without a story to tell now that some doctor has made him ten years younger. I will go on record and say that I will stop watching George Clooney movies if he ever tries to freeze his handsome face into a time-wrapped, smooth surface. And I have no idea what I’ll do if Hugh Jackman goes in for the “years younger” look, but I’m fairly certain it will involve tears.

    Poor Rupert, he’s become a plastic copy cat. Must be that male menopause denial stage. Hopefully he’ll get some character back and age fast.

    Thank God for George! Even at 17 my daughter thought he was the sexiest old guy. Harrison Ford is #2.

    I feel I’ve earned my lines, shows I’ve lived life, not lived for my face.

    Really? The guy on the right is also Rupert? Really?

    Oh dear. I hadn’t seen this new Rupert. What a shame. He’s actually sort of scary looking now, isn’t he?

    I’m ashamed to admit this, but one of my guiltiest pleasure websites is awfulplasticsurgery.com. ๐Ÿ™‚

    No! That can’t be him. It doesn’t even look like a younger Rupert. What a shame.

    I think most men improved so much with age. I know there have been a few “stars” that when they were younger they were okay, but the older they got the hotter they got. Leave alone the work God already created and made look so great on its on!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I want to take a wait-and-see attitude on this one. These pics were posted by STAR magazine for starters – not the most reliable source. I found a pic from a 4/19 appearance on Rachel Ray that shows him looking a tiny bit more rested and line free, but nothing this drastic. My money is on the STAR doctoring their pics a lot more than Rupert doctored his face.

    Rupert looks a bit like Simon Cowell minus the winkles. I never really noticed how well winkles look good on men until Kenny Rodgers. Did you see his plastic surgery make over? HORRORS!!!!

    When will people notice that we like them with their original face. Let’s hope that George Clooney will keep his face and let himself grow old gracefully. George has always been handsome and he IS like fine wine – gets better with age. Definitely Cary Grant material there.

    Rupert Everett was on the Today show this morning (during the 10 hour with Hoda and Kathie Lee). The whole time I watched his interview I was feeling the same as you — why?!?!?!? It is truly tragic what he and the surgeon did to his face. As he talked, there was very little movement in his face. So sad.

    Wow, Rupert looks really different. The photo on the right doesn’t even look natural–it looks like some extreme air brushing. I wonder what he’s going to do as he ages more–more plastic surgery? Or is the skin so tight that it’ll stay wrinkle free?

    off topic – i just went to one of my local big box stores (so it was last night), and they had Red Dress for sale (well, at first I saw Suzanne Enoch’s new release, then I saw Rachel Gibson’s, it took a while, but I finally found Red Dress through some searching). I have so many questions, but I shall wait. Oh my. Now what to do until the next installment of the Bachelor Chronicles….

    I hate it when celebrities get plastic surgery and then don’t even look like themselves. Bruce Jenner and Kenny Rogers are examples of total changes in appearance(and not in a good way!).

    Isnt it just a down right dirty rotten shame when they do that? Men and women! Just a shame. He looked so much better before. Now, so totally fake and not someone I would look twice at except to maybe think, “something is just not right with that guy!”

    OMG this cannot be Rupert! Plastic and a stranger – I’ll have to start building the memories all over again – not sure if there will be same appeal for an older/younger guy (hair just is not right) as usual for me I have to hold off on final comment until I hear his conversation or see him in character. Salt and Pepper is just plain earthy basic essentials.

    Still checking Aussie Kindle for your latest titles. I’ll be in North America at Christmas so I can stock up.

    Congratulations on Japanese market
