Colin Farrell in New York

Posted on August 02, 2011

Colin Farrell sauntered over to The Late Show with David Letterman wearing this:

… which leaves us intensely confused. He’s all “I’ve been cutting bog all day” from the waist down; “I can’t wait to get to SPLASH later so I can take my shirt off on the dance floor” from the waist to the neck, and “’90s boy band member” from the neck up. To be fair, that last one is pretty standard for him, and the faux work boots and distressed faux dirty jeans can’t be laid at his feet, since there are thousands of other men in New York working the same faux manly vibe. But we’re just gonna say it: we know the male chest is having a little moment right now with the plunging necklines and all, but MAN, is this look UBER-GAY or what? Don’t get us wrong, we’re enjoying the cleavage, but it’s so… well, “LOOK AT MY CHEST.” Which, when combined with LOOK AT MY ASS  and LOOK AT MY CROTCH, is the essential Muscle Mary look in every gay neighborhood in every city in America. When the somewhat vain top is paired with the faux working man bottom (top and bottom meaning his clothes, dirty girls), it just looks a little … off. Especially when you consider he’s wearing a cardigan over it and it was in the high ’80s and ’90s the entire past week in New York. He looks pretty hot, but that’s because he’s Colin Farrell, not because of the slightly odd outfit he’s wearing.

Oh, and that “shoving my hands in my pockets while flexing my pecs” move is a gay bar CLASSIC.

      I’m taking notes on the gay culture lessons here.  

      I can’t get behind this outfit from Colin – he really looks a wee douche-y.

      Did someone shave him and cut his hair while he slept? Or does he have a new woman? I feel like I haven’t been attracted to him in years and to be honest, he looks so hot there I have no idea what he’s wearing.

      • http://theskippyreview.wordpress.com/ Skippy

        I know, right?  For a while there, he was looking absurdly skeevy, like he hadn’t seen hide nor hair of a shower or a Norelco; he then fell off my “celebs I’d do if fate were ever so kind.”  Now?  He’s baaaaaack…

      Yes he looks hot in spite of the outfit. I dont mind, the man is pretty self-effacing when it comes to his former bad boy ways

    • http://twitter.com/CFFdotCom CFFansite

      He needed the cardigan.. he was taping Letterman.. who is FAMOUS for keeping his studio at below freezing temps. Other than that.. the shirt, jeans and boots.. are what Colin wears pretty much every day of the year.

      • Anonymous

        That’s what I was about to say. The sweater is probably just a practical thing, hopefully he took it off once he left the studio.

        That’s a bit too much chest for me, but he’s still hot to me.

      Yes, the white shirt opened that far definitely looks gay.

      I get the appeal of distressed jeans, but not faux dirty.  Why would you want to look dirty???

    • Tamela Allen

      He could be in a rainbow spandex jumpsuit, and I would still find him hot.

    • scottyf

      You forgot the double earrings.

      C’mon, you Photo-shopped out the downstairs bar at SBNY that he was leaning on, and Photo-shopped in the Ed Sullivan Theater. Right? Right?

      Since it’s a look I could never pull off, I’m not really hot on it. Still with the right body type (which he has), the combination has a real cool devil-may-care vibe. But you’re right: it is a standard issue Gay Uniform.

      Either way, I’d do him in a minute and 59 seconds.

      Kind of a shame actually. I like this look – with a few more buttons done up top. Not usually attracted to him, but this, I like. Of course, my first ‘boyfriend’ turned out to be gay….! Also, onlooker man in back with shades?….your pants are too long.

    • Isadora Paiva

      The too open shirt and the bulge (and not the good kind) in his right thigh are horrid, but I have to agree that I’m finding him attractive here for the first time in a while, so… HOT but not IN.

      The gay is only accentuated by the International Male leather wrist cuff.

      That being said, not complaining one bit. In fact, I hope he gets to Splash pronto so he’ll lose the shirt.

      I’ve never found him the least bit attractive.  He always just seems skeevy and dirty and not in a hot way.  This is just more of the same from him even though I’ll concede that his face and hair are better groomed than usual.  The double earrings are douche-tastic!  You’re not a pirate, dude.  And if I didn’t know better I’d swear he was gay.

      I hate (HATE) to admit it, but he’s looking cuter here than he has in a while. (Cuter, not hotter, because he’s Not My Type).

      I hate to admit it because he looks sooooo Artificially Casual and because I’m not a fan of that many un-done buttons (that look will forever have a small town wanna-be disco-drug-dealer vibe for me, no matter how crisp, white, and non-polyester the shirt. Even if the shirt is covered with a sub-fusc gray cardigan.)

      And I especially HATE to admit it because of the super styled, neat and tidy appearance between waist and neck **with the stupid shirt tail hanging out.**

      But, I’m getting the distinct vibe that HE’s very happy with his appearance.

      Is that a hole or a milk stain on the left side of his cardigan, or did someone rip the logo off?

      • Shawn Hill

        It is the logo … looks sort of like a bunny?

        • Anonymous

          When I first saw it, I thought it was a hole in his sweater!  Then I looked closer and saw the logo.  But if you have to look that closely to distinguish a logo from a hole, some designer is doing something seriously wrong with his/her logos and their placement.

      I know we’re living in a society where publicity & TV exposure is not nearly the big deal it was years ago, but if I were David Letterman I’d be insulted that one of my guests showed up looking like this.  I mean, c’mon.  You don’t need to do the full Wall St. Banker Look but take a little interest—shower, shave, wear clean clothing and shoes, and comb your hair.  He looks totally unacceptable for a national TV appearance.

      Serious question – what does “cutting bog” mean?

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_T53WBEPGJZ7MMMZC4O563YU5HA Observer

        In the British Isles  the marshy areas are referred to as bogs.  That is where they cut peat which is used for fuel.

      he reminds me of this male stripper i met once at a strip club…he was gay so it was ok for him to shave his chest and all and get his junk too close to me…I feel that it would be the same with Colin, but I would wish that he wasn’t gay…

      All of the comments have piqued my curiousity as to whom T-Lo find irresistible.  Occasionally, your comments will indicate your attraction-or lack thereof-to certain celebrities and it makes me wonder if T-Lo have a “type” or a Top Ten list of “Would Do In A Heartbeat”.  Care to enlighten us minions?  You could make it a whole post!

      I don’t want to go overboard with the “he is gay” commentary, but what about the leather cuff and earrings? Sure it is not on his forearm, but still considering the context of his clothes. Also are small earrings like the ones he is wearing still considered “gay” although I am from a different gen so I don’t see many earring on younger gay guys.

      In a moment of very poor judgment, Mr. O and I watched Alexander, featuring this young buck, with blonde locks, doing some of the worst acting we had ever seen.   I have since experienced the same feeling I had when Hugh Grant got caught getting the BJ in his car.  I cannot look at this guy without thinking of that silly movie and his silly blonde hair.  He looks better here…albeit rather gay, but better.
