Zachary Quinto at LAX

Posted on November 11, 2011

We really, REALLY hope Zachary Quinto hasn’t adopted a baby.

Not because we’re opposed to newly out and proud gays starting a family. Heavens, no.

It’s because he clearly needs a couple lessons on how to carry the poor thing.

But then we saw that he was simply at LAX, sporting  his favorite travel pillow.

And that’s so adorable we can’t even stand it. Isn’t coming out so liberating, Zachary? Now you can tote your big gay pillow with you wherever you want!

Also, your traveling outfit’s kind of cute.

    AHH HIPSTER NO BAD

    That’s all I can think when I see that. 

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      Oh, you clearly have no idea what hipsters actually look like. Scarf + skinny jeans + hat is the stereotype, but that’s “hip young people”. Hipsters, the kind that people so vocally hate, are rich urban kids who spend lots of money to look like poor rednecks and various other things that people typically spend money to NOT look like. Plus a bizarre love of spandex and neon.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Spending a lot of money to look poor. So hipsters are essentially the Olsen twins?

          no the Olsens are Boho

          • Sobaika Mirza

            That was a joke. Because they look like poor attempts at bag ladies and all.

            Oh sorry. It’s difficult to tell people’s tone sometime on internet comments haha.

          go figure

            I know, I saw the cover of Vogue. I seriously do not understand things sometimes.

      • Scott Hester-Johnson

        Wrong. He is, sadly wearing the hipster uniform: Wooly hat, Chucks, scarf (regardless of the weather), two days stubble and nerd glasses. You need to visit Grounds Zero of Hipsterlandia, Bridget, Brooklyn or the Mission in SF.

          I live in New York City. I went to Brown. I know what hipsters look like. I also know that there’s a difference between this outfit – a.k.a. what every vaguely style-aware (or not, even) guy in his 20s wears – and what actual hipsters wear. This is cool, easy, young, and certainly not deserving of the yelling “NO BAD” response.

          Maybe the problem is that I’m actually TOO used to hipsters and so this looks normal to me?

          • Anonymous

            I think you and I may be in the same boat with Acquired Hipster Tolerance. Hell, I myself have been developing an insidious love of neon lately. It’s gotta get into stupid mullets and terrifying dead-squirrel mustaches for me to get really upset.

            Besides, he looks hygienic. Many hipsters…do not. (When and why did severely unwashed hair become cool? I repeat, WHEN AND WHY?)

          • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

            NO. Resist the neon! It has a tantalizing siren song (to mix some Greek mythology metaphors), but you won’t look like an American Apparel mannequin, you’ll look like an American Apparel MODEL! Don’t do it!

            And I’m gonna blame Aragorn for that one. Note to all men: if Viggo Mortensen as the archetypal fantasy hero only just barely pulls it off, you don’t have a chance.

          • Anonymous

            My only consolation is that so far I seem to be doing neon in a tasteful and successful way? I say this because not only do my parents like my neon orange shoes, but so do many random strangers. Who are not hipsters.

            “Just barely?”

            I think not. Sweaty filthy rangers for the win.

          • O Superman

            Thank you! This is just young and stylish. There are plenty of times I walk through Brooklyn and want to grab people to keep in my pocket that I can pull out in this sort of situation and say “NO THIS IS A HIPSTER. SHUT UP.”

            Agree! Quinto doesn’t look pretentious, he looks stylish. If he were going for “hipster” he’d be wearing oversized pink-tinted librarian glasses from the 80s, a headband, and his grandmother’s baby blue cardigan.

          I live in the Mission and I say hipster not.  There’s no irritating irony except for the nerd glasses  It’s too expensive and the striped scarf with the striped shirt is too cute and stylish.  Hip, yes.

          • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

            I’m so beyond irritated by the glasses thing — I’ve worn glasses for years, and heavy frames and/or nerd glasses since 1997.  It had nothing to do with irony and everything to do with the fact that I loved Lisa Loeb and thought she was beautiful.  I liked the look.  Now I’m suddenly pegged as a hipster!

        Really well-said!  When people were accusing Jennifer Aniston of being a hipster I was so annoyed.

    LOL — there should really be a PSA encouraging young gays to come out with the tagline “You can tote your big gay pillow with you wherever you want!”

  • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

    I find it totally hilarious that his scarf is almost exactly the same as his shirt, but it’s a pretty great outfit all the same. Nothing special, just cool and easy.

    When I first saw the post, I imagined Katy Perry pouncing into frame trying to steal the big gay pillow.

      That is a very Katy Perry pillow.

      That’s it! He doesn’t look like a hipster, he looks like an emo kid from 2004! (I mean this as only a good thing. I liked 2004.)

      If you have no earthly idea what I’m talking about, there’s a hipster/not hipster debate going on upthread.

        MilaXX, my dear, let me tell you, from experience, all you have to do is google “K/S fanzine” or “Kirk/Spock” & you will see & read some of the most graphic art & literature in fandom centered around the relationship between a certain captain & his 1st officer. Some of it’s quite well done.

        • http://twitter.com/Revieloutionne Arcuatus Irrutus

          Some of it uses spliced audio from Zachary Quinto himself, audio-booking the novelization of the recent movie.

          They are the original slash couple

            Even have their own Wiki page. Awesome! I had no idea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirk/Spock
            According to Henry Jenkins of the USC Annenberg School, you are quite correct, they are indeed the 1st slash pairing.

    Boy, the way Zach and everyone in the background is dressed, you’d think they were in Vermont or something.  It’s Los Angeles people; it’s probably at least 60 degrees.  You don’t need layers and knit hats!

    • Anonymous

      It’s camera readiness.  Easy layers that cover most of your body make it harder for random photographers to snap photos of you where you look cracked out/bruised/insane.

    Honestly, we should have a moratorium on “…at LAX”.  The last place on earth I want to have my outfit judged is getting of a plane after a 4 – 6 hour flight, it’s just not fair.  That said, he looks very cute.  I say, enjoy this look now because all to soon the time will pass that he can pull this off without looking like an ass hat.  And the pillow?  I just can’t go there, none of the gay men I know would be caught dead carrying that thing around.  And was anyone, anywhere surprised when he officially confirmed what EVERYONE knew already?

    Guys. This is not hipster. It’s way too classic-looking to be hipster. He is not even in skinny jeans and he’s in blacks and greys. The only issue I have is the striped scarf/striped t-shirt combo.

    Let’s be real: I’m pretty sure any man who has worn half the stupid-ass hats Quinto has worn has never had any qualms about carrying giant gay travel pillows. Oh, Quinto. I am happy for him, I just also find him kind of hilariously ridiculous.

    The get-up is standard California winter wear (translation: thinking it’s cold outside when it’s really 50 degrees). The pillow adds the gayness factor.
