Russell Tovey: I'm Not A Sex Symbol

According to this New York Times interview, Looking (and Being Human) star Russell Tovey doesn't think he's a sex symbol.

Do you agree??

When asked about his potential sex-symbol status, Tovey tells NYT's Kathryn Shattuck:

You tell me. [Laughs.] I’ve got ratty curly hair. I’ve got sticky-out ears. I‘ve got a little troll nose. I’m like a little pale street urchin. I’m lucky that I’ve sort of aged well into my face. I don’t think people are repelled by me. But one never sees how other people see you in a mirror at all — ever.

There's charm in self-deprecation...

What do you think, Instincters? Tovey, or not Tovey, a sex symbol? That is the question.

(And a terrible pun.)

His self description sounds like my own, how come I don't look like him? 

Actually, the British accent alone is sexy.

Any guy who denies his sexiness is even more sexy, and he is really sexy. I am so in love with his ears.

We both something in common, we both have big ears, but mine are ugly, and his are adorable.

The fact that he doesn't think he's a sex symbol, makes him even more adorable.  Maybe he should think of himself as a "romantic symbol", because I want to marry him!

Russell, YOU don't get to declare yourself a sex symbol - the public does that.  Anyway, if you did, chances are the reaction would be less than positive, i.e. disparaging "Who does (s)he think (s)he is?" stuff.  As it is, I think you're cute as pie . . .

He is so wrong about all his 'defects'. He's hot and he's just perfect! I don't even see anything wrong with his ears. Sexy? Hell yeah - like nobody's business

He's a cute guy. But maybe he want's to be seen as sexy for his personality too!

I agree. He's average. Also, sexy is not just about being good looking. You have to back it up with some "game". :-)
