My opinion may not be the most popular, but aesthetically speaking, I'm drawn to guys who are -- to use the euphemism that's all the rage on salad dressing labels these days -- full-flavor. Some people just look decidedly sexier with a little meat on their bones. Ignoring the obvious cases (the luminous Ms. Winslet!) and celebrities who are tragically gaunt due to eating disorders (poor Lindsay Lohan -- remember when she used to be beautiful?), here are a couple famous dudes I'd encourage to order their French toast a la mode.
Alec Baldwin. The platonic ideal of a hot older man. Sure in his brash youth he boasted enormous biceps and chest hair you could practically get lost in, but a few years and many pounds later, he looks polished, powerful and utterly beguiling. I'd still get lost in your chest hair, Alec. You just name the time and place.
Alexa Vega. When Alexa Vega first appeared on the scene in Spy Kids (don't judge me) and a few forgettable teen movies, she already had the makings of a striking beauty: gorgeous face, quirky features, dramatic hair. Now she's just another blonde Hollywood preying mantis. Oh what might have been.
Jennifer Connelly. Don't get me wrong: you could dip Jennifer Connelly in mayonnaise and roll her in pork cracklin's and she'd still be a radiant goddess, but I much prefer her when she's looking soft and femininely curvy.
Vince Vaughn. Oh Vince, with your double chin, receding hairline and general air of mugshottiness -- you wear your dishabille like Dior. Like Hollywood really needed just another strong jawline.
Oprah Winfrey. Why do I, in my heart of hearts, prefer Fat Oprah to her intermittently svelter self? Is it that Skinny Oprah wears a lean and hungry look compared to the self-affirming empress she is now? Or perhaps that her weight gain shows her acceptance of her true self? Maybe it's just the fact that she's rich enough to hire a new trainer and personal chef every single day for the rest of her life and girlfriend still can't get any smaller than a size 12. Either way, Oprah, I salute you.
You guys, go eat some onion rings. I promise you'll still be hot afterwards. In fact, they may just make you hotter. Any celebrities you think look mouth-watering when they're carrying a few extra pounds?
