We drool over so many straight men from the entertainment and sports world. There's nothing wrong with that. It keeps the blood and other juices flowing. Bieber, Jonas, Usher, Beckham, Gronk, just to name a few. It's always fun to have a crush or a fantasy, no? What is also exciting is when we hear one famous person jonesin on another. With his new movie 'Nocturnal Animals' coming out soon, Tom Ford opened up to Vulture.com about one of his movie's stars he visually enjoys.
Fashion designer and director Tom Ford is a big fan of Jake Gyllenhaal's chest and pubic hair, and really, who isn't?!
Gyllenhaal stars in Ford's upcoming thriller "Nocturnal Animals" and the out filmmaker recently spoke with Vulture about the flick as well as its stars.
"We are physical creatures," he said. "Touch your chair – it's velvet. That feels good, doesn't it? A steak, if you eat meat, tastes great. A fur coat, or cashmere, feels good. Things that are beautiful, we enjoy."
"I want a movie to be a movie!" Ford later added. "We have enough reality. I want the score to be big, I want the characters to be big, I want people to be more beautiful than they are in real life!"
And apparently Ford wants Gyllenhaal to be Gyllenhaal! As Vulture writer Kyle Buchanan points out, the shots of the actor in the trailer for "Nocturnal Animals" shows with a hairy chest. Buchanan adds a number of Gyllenhaal's recent films, like "Nightcrawler," "Southpaw" and "Demolition," features a shaved-chest Gyllenhaal.
"It just never occurred to me that he should shave his chest!" Ford said. "I happen to like body hair. I think people should leave it alone – I'm not a fan of all this manscaping that goes on. I don't really get it."
Ford didn't stop there.
"If you like the chest, you should see what's down here," he told Vulture. "There is no manscaping." Ford repeated it for emphasis: "There is no manscaping."
Buchanan said Ford walked him to the door after their interview and winked, adding, "Nice talking to you. I'll get Jake to show you his bush sometime." – edgemedianetwork.com
Where is that list? Will we see some bush in 'Nocturnal Animals?' Crap! Now I will have to watch.
So what is 'Nocturnal Animals' about? I've watched the preview several times and I don't know! I have some ideas, but I'm still a little confused.
Focus will expand “Animals” on Nov. 23 and go wide on Dec. 9. It bought worldwide rights last year at the Cannes Film Festival in a deal costing more than $20 million.
Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Armie Hammer, Ellie Bamber and Laura Linney also star in the drama. The film is an adaptation of Austin Wright’s 1993 novel “Tony And Susan,” described as a two-part story within a story.
The first part follows a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband — a man whom she left 20 years earlier — asking for her opinion of his writing. The second revolves around the manuscript, titled “Nocturnal Animals,” about a man whose family vacation turns violent. – Variety.com
The YouTube description doesn't help me out more than the above. From writer/director Tom Ford comes a haunting romantic thriller of shocking intimacy and gripping tension that explores the thin lines between love and cruelty, and revenge and redemption. Academy Award nominees Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves in “Nocturnal Animals.” – youtube.com
So the possibility of Gyllenhaal bush and a confusing trailer and summations that don't tell the whole story. Thanks Tom Ford for building the excitement. Expect a ticket to be purchased in November.
