...without the aid of mirrors or advise of personal assistants.

Now, I want to know how this happened to Val Kilmer! This hardly seems right or fair.

...And, this just KILLS me -
Noooooooooo!!!! True, she is 65. But, Noooooooo! ...maybe it was the smoking?

This posting is mean. I'm sorry. But, all my faves are getting old. Which means I am getting old. Which sucks! The ways of the human flesh can be so cruel!


Blogger Lubin said...

It's not age that's cruel, it's culture. We're just socially conditioned to think of some types of bodies as more attractive than others. In other societies and at other times, Val's big tummy would be seen as sexy. Or something. Oh I don't know! It looks pretty gross to me too.

Blogger matty said...

Lubin -- Honey, I agree. I really do but I don't think any culture is going to embrace Val's new look. LOL! I mean, if that should happen to me I would get myself to a gym! Pronto! But, it wouldn't be as shocking cuz I've never been such great shakes anyhow! This is Val Kilmer! The face and bod that could launch a thousand ships of desire!?!?! What's he thinking? And, I just realized. ...he isn't as old as I thought he was. I believe he is 46! Sigh.

But, yes. Our culture has become far too socially conditioned to believe that everyone should be young and in either scultped perfect shape or painfully skinny shape. Yes.

Still, can I have the Val of just a couple of years ago back? You know where he played the blind massage therapist who woos Mira Sorvino?

I just don't particularly find Kilmer attractive at any age, or Streisand. But it is somewhat out of character for you. Sort of Perez Hiltonesque. Not that I would dare compare you to him. Whoops.

4:51 PM  
Blogger matty said...

Kalvin -- I know. I am ashamed. Tho, you hurt me deeply. How can I be like Paris Hilton. ...or, wait. Perez Hilton???? Is that in ref to something she has done that I missed. I'm confused.

No, I was just totally bummed to see two celebs I've always enjoyed looking at look like that! It forced me to face the fact that time stands stil for no one. See? I'm an orginal thinker!

Fear not. I will most likely be putting up another post very soon. and, I hope it will not be mean or shallow.

color me "ashamed"

He still looks kinda gay, although he gained a few pounds in his stomach. I used to think he was so sexy .....

Matt -- You know, I was in love with Val. He spurned me -- now, look at him. It is so tragic. (sigh)

And so we go. . . I think it's harder for those of us who weren't good looking celebrities to begin with. This posting depresses me, Matty.

Yes Val's not looking so good these days. And Babs does look incredibly old, that picture was quite a shock! Makes you realise the power of make-up and studio lights!

But c'est la vie as they say. And keeping in shape can be an incredible chore sometimes and something that gets harder as you get older. I'm certainly podgier than I was in my 20s...all about the metabolism change really. For me, once I got past 30 it was easier to put on weight rather than lose it! Pah! Mother nature, you are sooo cruel!!

The obvious way to fight the flab is to eat healthy and exercise but as I said that can be an incredible frickin' bore ... And lipsocution just ain't an option for me, honey pie.

Poor Babs!

Blogger matty said...

Old Cheeser -- Yep! Mother Nature can be quite mean. And, I find, the harder it is to lose the extra weight --- the more tempting the bad food is! I used to not care so much about food as I do now! Lipo is not a choice pour moi, either.

Minge -- Yes, poor Barbra! Still stick on some tape, plop on a wig, string up a corset, apply the right make up and fix the lights and she's good as 55! Still has that voice! ...and, James Brolin. Tho, I've not seen him as of late. (shudder)

Blogger Me said...

I'm all for the natural processes of aging but Val is just being fat and lazy. That's just slovenly. I swear I thought he was a seal (and NOT the Navy kind) sunning himself on the beach. I expect him to flap his flippers and waddle back into the water. As for Barbra, I forgive her. She's makeup-less, she's in her 60s, even Barbra is allowed to have a lazy day. A bra would have been a nice choice though. Now, if you'll excuse me I think there's a box of Meow mix with my name on it.

Culture, Cigarettes, Nature, Nurture, Whatever - THIS POST MADE MY FREAKING DAY!

LOL! I LOVE IT! Making me feel waaaay better today! Ha! Thanks Matty!

Blogger Karyn said...

And ps, age schmage. You and I might be aging (behind Babs & Val, of course) but you look eleventy hundred thousand times better than he does! So you out-hot Val Kilmer. Rock on, Baby!

11:57 AM  
Blogger matty said...

Lovely Meredith -- How true. Can I have a bit of that mix? Perhaps I shall pick up a box while out and about today.

Karyn! LOL! Well, you made MY day!!! Tho, I am not nor ever will be at the level of "hot" once inspired by Val Kilmer. ...I still think he could be hot if he would stop eating and move about a bit. Well, maybe. Not sure. Genetics factors in, does it not?? ...look at what happened to Marlon Brando. (shudder down to my soul)

Blogger Matt said...

You know, this reminds me Alec Baldwin...I used to be soooooo in love with him and that furry blanket of his chest. Now he must have gained 50 pounds. *sigh*

6:09 PM  
Blogger matty said...

Matt - Yes, The Baldwins don't seem to age well. Not sure why that is. However, they all retain that sexy charm when they smile or get arrested.

I agree with Lubin in a way, it is culture. Celebrities have to fit a certain way in order to be beautiful to the people. I say if Val and Babs see these pictures and they don't give a shit, then fuck the masses. Good for them! I applaud them! :-)

6:36 PM  
Blogger matty said...

Robert -- I like that. I wonder if they do care. It would be interesting to know. I would guess that Val Kilmer doesn't care. ...the photo of Babs was probably taken with one of those horrid telephoto cams from a mile away. ...from what I am told it was snapped as she was checking on some work being done on her home in LA. Poor thing. Still. I wonder if they really would care.

...there are certainly moments (many) in my life/day I would not want the www to see. Of course I am not a multi-million dollare celeb. But, should that matter?

I probably should have never put this post up. It's mean in spirit.

Val Kilmer's gut, unbelievable. Now I'll have to do 30 extra crunches. Hopefully Val can still see his feet.

Thanks for sharing. Big hairy muscle hugs for a super New year.

And thanks for commenting on my blog post at GayMenRule. The train and trolley are cool. I can always share.

Blogger matty said...

Buff! Hi! Thanks for stopping by! Yes, isn't that tragic regarding Mr. Kilmer. I mean I rather like a little extra meat on the bones but that is taking it a bit too far -- and he was always so pretty! The trains sound really cool!

Joshua -- Just take a big sip of wiskey and just don't think about it! LOL! Scary isn't it?!?!!? And, I just saw Diana Rigg in a movie last night. ...she looked like Golim. oy! Movie stars should not have to age!
