Tobey Maguire for Prada

Posted on June 14, 2011

So much girlstuff lately – and more in the pipeline for today, kittens. Let’s all center ourselves, take a cleansing breath, and look at a boy.


Tobey Maguire for Prada Fall 2011 ad campaign, photographed by David Sims.

Tobey sez:

“A great supporter of the Arts, Miuccia Prada has inspired a culture of creativity that is woven through every aspect of her company, from her collections, her campaigns, to every design detail in her stores. I have such admiration for her artistry and I’m thrilled to be a part of Prada’s fall campaign.”

Well, he doesn’t actually look thrilled, does he? In fact, he looks like he just got a bad diagnosis of some sort. Tobey? Why so serious? Beautifully shot pictures and great clothes, but that puss is off-putting.

    What in the hell is he wearing under the gray sweater in the first shot? Looks like his spidey costume! I just never understood any “hot” vibes with him. Gak!

      Spiderman is not supposed to be hot…

    In these pictures he looks a little like Kristen McMenamy. Which I’m pretty sure was not what he was intending. But maybe the art director was..

    I saw “Brothers” recently and although I have a newfound respect for Mr Maguire as an actor, I still can’t get past how gorgeous Jake Gyllenhaal looked in that film. The clothes are great but as a model he does nothing for me.

     Love the argyle sweater, but in the first one that orangey-red shirt just looks like a rash.

    • Anonymous

      Oh! Y’know, all this time I’d thought the orange bit was actually part of the sweater.
      Because who the heck would wear an orange undershirt.

      Doh. Concurred.

    Um..why?   Him, the clothes, the ‘my life is over’ look on his face, the horrific quote. Why?

  • Anonymous

    They just told him he can’t keep the clothes.

    He’s so sad because he just realized that despite wearing gorgeous, beautifully taliored, masculine clothes and yet….. he still has zip sex appeal.

    Boy is the operative word when discussing Maguire.  I know he’s in his 30s, but when will his adolescence end?

    I’m all for looking at cute boys with pretty blue eyes. The clothes are nice too.

    Why so serious, Tobes?? Worried about Andrew Garfield taking all your Spidey glory?

    Those turtlenecks are questionable at best….

    I guess his right side is the most photogenic! I never thought in million years that Tobey would be modeling clothes. Prada should have given this assignment to some real poor male model. You know handsome male models need to eat too.

    Wait. I missed something. Why is k.d. lang posing as Tobey Macguire, posing for Prada?

      ooooooooooooh …. COLD. 

      lol yikes.

        ditto! But I cannot stop laughing.

      I knew there’d be a reason why I was finding him so uncharacteristically fetching!

      No, no – he’s distinctly prettier than Ms. Lang has been in years.

      I enjoyed the pointless broodiness. Ya just wanna offer the poor dear a hot cup of tea, and then escape before he starts telling you his problems.

    ick to that mock turtleneck in the dark beige-y color in the first picture. And tot he barrel like jacket in that pic and on the middle model.

    Also not a fan of the pants in any of the pics.

    I like the clothes, but they picked the wrong boy to handle a man’s job.

  • Susan Foster

    He never seems to look older.  Just weird.

  • http://profiles.google.com/galalefey Gabriella Ripoll

    I’ve never liked him, especially not as Spiderman. Far too whiny. 

  • http://profiles.google.com/angelarosesarno angela rose sarno

    a resounding yawn.  sorry tobes, everything about you is forgettable.

    He belongs to a rare breed of actor for me: people who make me actually avoid the projects they are in.  also on this list: j.lo, e.pompeo, and harrison ford. (star wars excepted)

  • Pristine Ong

    Anyone else getting Edmund Tyrone vibes, what with the spiffy outfits and just-got-bad-news expression? Maybe Tobey Maguire is angling for a role in an upcoming Eugene O’Neill production?

    I’m sorry. I’m too distracted by that weird orange undershirt in the first picture to see anything else.

  • MilaXX

    Something about his neck doesn’t work for me. Maybe it is the sour puss. The clothes are nice, but I think it needs a long angular body to really make it work. I’d love to see Matt Smith in these clothes.

      “I wear argyle now. Argyle is cool.”

      Actually, I’d like to see Matt Smith *out* of these clothes…

    I don’t think Tobey knows how to look happy. All he does is whiny emo kid.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    He’s still got that Spiderman 3 weirdly Emo look… Hated it then, hate it now!

  • http://vhanna26.typepad.com Vera

    He’s channeling James McAvoy here. I like the clothes.

    Tobey’s done nothing for me as an actor nor as a model. The blue sweater with pinkish underlay doesn’t work with his coloring. He’s washed out. I don’t think these clothes are particularly earth shattering, and the dark lighting in the photos certainly aren’t helping sell the dark clothes at all. And what a sour puss of a face!

    all i can think is that he looks pissed that he’s not spiderman anymore.

    Whenever I look at Tobey Maguire, I can only think of my dear elderly father’s (may he RIP) reaction to him after seeing “Cider House Rules.” My dad seriously asked me whether they hired a mentally disabled actor to play the role. Poor Tobey.

    Not a bad model here, but not great either. I’m not digging the high/mock neck on the shirt and sweater.

      I just died, remembering how weird he was in that movie. *Snarf*

  • Beth G

    the first picture looks like he stole one of my grandma’s lace dickeys…..

    Looks like he’s trying to do the Stephen Moyer on TrueBlood brood.

  • kim i

    otoh, i’m assuming he didn’t direct the shoot, or select the photos used.  i’d put this one on the shoulders of prada’s creative and/or marketing director.

    I gotta disagree. HOTNESS. Tobey, where ya been? I didn’t realize how much I missed ya!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

    he’s not my type either, but I think both he and the clothes look great.  He could have tried a different expression….

  • Jill Roberts

    He looks kind of sexy in that first shot, but the second one takes me back to Middle Earth.

    I’m having a hard time with broody, pondery Tobey.  I like nerdy, smiley Tobey.

    The undershirt in the first photo is a hair too close to his own skintone, it looks like a hairy sunburnt chest.

    I’m sorry, I can’t support turtlenecks on anyone except Magneto.

    Blergh.

    He’s very cute, but the turtleneck, the blazer, and the sour smile are all very “Frankenstein” to me.

    now, not every editorial has to sexualize its male subjects. its ok for them to be chic in an icy and androgynous way too, sometimes. but here, maguire not only looks sexless. he looks kinda dead. is this supposed to be vampiric-zombie-themed or something?

  • Anonymous

    I feel like this is the serious, grim expression on most male models, and I think he looks good.  Can’t get behind the double neckline sweater thing of the first look, though.

    I love the second shot

    TOBES. Hello, Tobes. Wow. Yum.

      I can’t help it. I grew up in New Canaan, Connecticut where “The Ice Storm” was filmed and he was so great in that.

    I was so disappointed when I scrolled down and saw that it wasn’t bondage wear, it was argyle.

    A big WTF all around. Eww.

    He bugs the ever living crap out of me.  I sorta like the clothes but he ruined it for me.

    Is he wearing a meat shirt in the first photo?
