Jason Statham for Details Magazine

Posted on March 20, 2012

Another day, another meathead, darlings.

 

Jason Statham featured in the April 2012 issue of Details magazine photographed by Norman Jean Roy.

Shirt and pants by Louis Vuitton. Shoes by Bally. Socks by Pantherella. Watch throughout, his own.

Suit by Prada. Shirt by Charvet. Tie and pocket square by Tom Ford.

He’s one of those guys who, the first time we saw him we squealed and declared him the hotness, but each subsequent encounter left us a little less enthralled. Physically hot; yes, but after a while the “looks like he might take his anger out on you” vibe takes over, making him considerably less attractive. The douchebag is strong in this one.  Still, we can understand the appeal and he can wear a suit surprisingly well. He looks gorgeous in that Tom Ford.

    He was an Olympic caliber diver… back in the day.  Which might help explain his physique.  I’ve always liked him, despite his increasingly stupid movies.
    He looks pretty darn great in these pics… though I’d love to see him clean shaven, just this once!!

  • Laura Korth

    Gorgeous is an understatement.

    So funny!  “The douchbag is strong in this one.”  I agree.  I don’t think he looks tough.  He looks sort of confused in every shot.
    Odd to see him and the headline “The haircut to get now” next to him.  But, he’s another one who makes a vest work.

    • JosephLamour

      His expression in that last picture looks like someone off-screen is playing the KONY 2012 video.

      • lovelyivy

         I think I still have that expression on my face a week later.

         ”WHYYYYYY?”

  • SpcilK

    I adore English men! Very clean and stylish editorial.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Poor man’s Bruce Willis. Always was, always will be.

    • drdirection

      I love that!

    • http://www.facebook.com/izzzyy Dixie Murphy Ross

       I dunno…something about the agility Jason has is attractive. Bruce, while fantastic, just makes me want to give him a big ol hug.

    • ChelseaNH

       Statham has had fight scenes with Jet Li in at least 3 movies.  He’s got moves that Willis had no prayer of pulling off.

      But yes, he’s still a meathead…

      • Pants_are_a_must

        Whereas Bruce Willis has charisma, charm and he can actually act if he feels like it. Gurl, don’t even get me started.

    Yeah, when did the stubble become a permanent thing? No likey.
    But he does fill out a suit nicely.

  • Frank_821

    It’s funny he’s done a mix of cheesy bad action films like the Transporter but also has appeared in some good and quirky british flicks like those Guy Ritchie Films and that movie the Bank Job

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      I would actually consider Guy Ritchie’s movies to be cheesy and bad, although a bit lighter on the action than The Transporter.

      • funkycamper

        Really?  I love “Snatch”.  Absolutely hysterical.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Karen-Stephens-Bassett/1503492602 Karen Stephens Bassett

    Oh…thud.  I swoon every time I see him.  I watch all his movies, even though most of them don’t make any sense.

  • http://profiles.google.com/hawkeye1978 Kristin Hanson

    The final photograph confuses me a bit.  What is the emotion they were going for?  Sadness?  Confusion?  I just don’t know what the look on his face is supposed to mean.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Constipation?

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=21413366 Evan Hart

       I think the photographer probably told him to be “pensive” and he got scared by A Big Word. That’s hopeless confusion right there.

    • calimon

      You guys, stop….heheheheh…making ….hehehehe….mee….heheheheh….laugh!!

    • littlemac8

      They all confuse me.  What is he supposed to be doing in this editorial?  Building a bomb?  I have no idea.

  • joe_tey83

    Douchebagness is indeed strong. Then again, who cares. I’m never gonna meet him and even if I did, nothing will happen. Since it’s all fantasy anyway, I’ll just imagine him being a non-douchebag and a sex beast – and that ‘douchebag’ is just a secret sex lingo between us that describes a perverse act involving our body parts.

    Lalalalala.

  • https://twitter.com/Gayer_Than_Thou Gayer Than Thou

    Yes, you’re in for hate fucks a-plenty with that one.

    • http://twitter.com/yankeefoxtrot Alex McGeagh

      you say that like it’s a bad thing! Hehe.

  • Jessica O’Connell

    He’s cuter when you can here him talk… Without the accent, not nearly as hot.

    • Tamara Hogan

      In the Details article, he pronounces FUCK as FACK. Which is totally hot.  

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

    He just doesn’t do it for me.  Sharp clothes though.

    • FashionShowAtLunch

      Yep.  Leaves me completely cold.  I find people of all types, shapes, and sizes attractive, so it’s not the meat-headedness that turns me off.   Maybe it’s because he reminds me of my sister-in-law’s ex-husband, who was a total self-satisfied douche.  Yes – that’s what it is: there’s something very self-satisfied about this guy. 

      Also, he’s dating Rosie Huntington-whatever, whom I also cannot stand.

  • http://profiles.google.com/jgonz85 Jasmine Gonzalez

    May I suggest Meathead Mondays?  If you’re feeling extra generous, the precious unborn fawns would love for Thursday Thighs to make a return!

    • JosephLamour

      YES.

    • joe_tey83

       Thursday Thighs is sorely missed.

  • JosephLamour

    I don’t really find him attractive anymore. My british friend used to do an impression of him every time I bought him up, and he told me he’s basically a Kris Humpries in his country. LOL

  • jjfg

    He does look good in that second to last photo… He can wear a suit but I prefer him dirtied up.

  • J D

    He is really, really good looking but he always looks unfathomably stupid in pictures.

    Also, I wish Details and GQ would do a spread with a celebrity that didn’t involve cars.  Just once.

    • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

      I was going with “dumb as a box of rocks” but “unfathomably stupid” works too. Do you think he can read without moving his lips?

  • piecesofconfetti

    I never got the douchebag vibe off of him. I think he’s probably more intelligent and quirky than he comes across in photo editorials. He was in Gnomeo and Juliet – seems like he has a sense of humor.

  • BeeBeauNYC

    The first thing I think of when someone says Prada and Tom Ford suits is an auto parts store. 

  • http://twitter.com/melo_jelo melo_jelo

    I can’t focus on the handsome man because of this:

    “EAT CARBS!”

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_64HSRZWCSJ5RBFGCWDLFQOICYM G

    My idea of fun:  watching him going mano-a-mano with Woody H from Friday’s post. 

  • allisankelly

    Statham does talk with his forehead, huh? Is he really dating Rosie H-W? Isn’t he old enough to be her rich uncle?

    Woody Harrelson looked hotter and gave much better FACE in his layout.

  • PRFan

    I just can’t give up on this guy – for every couple of stupid movies he does, he makes one good, weird one.  And I agree with everyone about the stubble, the douchebaginess, and the dumb expressions.  I can’t explain it, I still
    think he’s hot.

  • serenitynow02

    I used to like his looks, but in this spread he really looks like an English gangster from a PBS Mystery series.

    I think I am definitely over him.

  • Rand Ortega

    I totally get why Rosie Huntington Whiteley is so besotted w/ him, but he scares me. But then, back in the day, I was so in love w/ a boy who could be his twin (covered in tats & mostly wore kilts from his clan in Edinbugh) & he was gentle as a lamb.

  • hughman

    He’s incredibly tiny IRL. Like Pocket Gay tiny. So he has that man/boy hotness going which, you know, yay for him I guess.  

  • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Oh, man.  I got Homer Simpson in the pink shirt picture and now I’ll never be able to unsee it.  None for me, thanks!

    • harlowish

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

      Now I can’t unsee it!

    • alyce1213

      Brilliant! Spot on.

  • calimon

    Couldn’t they put him in like an architect’s office?? It would be a more an interesting juxtaposition and take some of the edge off. Right now he’s reminds me of the menacing villain in the Allstate Insurance commercials and it’s making me uncomfortable.

  • nannypoo

    I don’t know who this guy is, but I think he’s sort of hot. Much hotter, in fact, than that other guy you occasionally feature, the one with the big neck who really does look like a meathead.

  • Jennifer Hejtmánková

    I much prefer him over that Channing Tatum meathead….

    • MilaXX

       THIS! At least he has a neck.

  • Sunshine16

    probably my favorite meathead of all…better live than in still shots

  • alyce1213

    Thugly.  Ick.

    • Lisa

      Yeah.  Too meaty for my type.  

  • http://twitter.com/mediapileup mediapileup

    What is wrong with you people not loving the Statham! Seriously, I will admit I find him totally hot and could care less what vibe he’s giving off as long as he looks that good doing it. I was annoyed, though, in the last movie of his I watched that he didn’t take his shirt off. I thought that was SOP for any of his roles.

  • quiltrx

    Mmmm, yummy.  I have a mental collection of ‘dirty hunks’ and ‘clean hunks’–Jason is very high on the dirty list!

    (the only thing better than looking at him is looking at him WHILE HEARING HIM TALK.  Rawr.)

  • ccm800

    Looks like stills from a warehouse training video. 

  • aristida_girl

    Thank you TLo, he is one of my faves, douchey or not…

  • boweryboy

    Oh.

    He. is. de.lish.ous.

  • kingderella

    hes hot to death and i love him as an actor.
    i have no opinion on his public persona, since i dont really read interviews with actors.
    this editorial is nice. not great, but nice.

  • lordandtaylor

    Poor guy looks constipated in every shot. Let’s send him some bran muffins.

  • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

    He is sex on a stick in that Tom Ford, but he does consistently make all the wrong career moves.

  • CatherineRhodes

    Not seeing the hotness whatsoever…

  • Larkin21

    I like this meathead much more than Channing Tatum.
