Jamie Bell in Venice

Posted on November 19, 2012

Jaime Bell, we hate you, you skinny little bitch.


Jamie Bell leaves Gjelina restaurant in Venice, California.


Yes, it’s just the jealousy talking. We love your look but we’re just self-aware enough to know never to attempt it.

    I’d wear everything here if I were young enough to carry it (as he does here) off as ‘Hip” and “Cool” instead of just ‘Old man heading for a chess game in the park.”
    I really mean that.

    • Oh, to be young, thin, rich, good-looking and famous again.  Or ever.

      • formerlyAnon

         I had young and thin and good-looking once.


        • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

          i was never thin.  once i was beefy and muscular.  but never thin.  

      •  I remember thin, vaguely.
        Memory of young is spotty at best.
        And I was never THAT kind of good looking.  I had my own “special charm”.

        • formerlyAnon

          A lid to every pot – there’s almost no brand of look that doesn’t have its fan base!

        • Louise Bryan

          My mom always said I was handsome.  Just what every little girl wants to hear.

          •  I’ve been called “striking” before, but I think that’s just a nice way of saying “strange looking.”

          • formerlyAnon

            When *I* call someone “striking” it means they’re not standard issue catalog pretty, but that I really, really like the way they look. That my eyes keep returning to them, and it’s darn sure not in horror.

            I feel like I’m spamming with all these comments on this, but I have spent my life preferring non-standard attractiveness in others and I hate when I compliment someone and they think I mean “~insert compliment~, for someone who isn’t really good looking.” 

          • “Different” she said “With a special something and a very very personal flare”

          • formerlyAnon

            I’ve always thought that that line would be marvelous in the passionate words of a lover. From Mom, not so much.

          •  Ah, Edward Kleban…..your lyrics live on. 

          • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

            “Everyone is beautiful at the ballet.”

          • formerlyAnon

            “Handsome” is wonderful & enviable (in my opinion) from 30-ish on up. Those looks wear so well, when pretty doesn’t. At 15, not so much.

          • My family’s been saying I’ve been looking more and more like my grandmother, who basically defined “handsome woman” to me when I was growing up. I’ma own it.

  • MilaXX

    Normally a guy with a ha like that would send me into a hipster rage, but I like his look.

  • formerlyAnon

    Skinny boys. They can be forgiven slightly too-hipster shades and hat. Even the calculatedly face & hair revealing angle said hat is worn at.

  • I was about to go all crazy and say, “That is NOT Venice.  Cars are not allowed in Venice.  And that is NOT an Italian restaurant name.”  And then I remembered there was another, lesser Venice, in California–which is where I assume the young man was photographed.

    Composure recovered, I can now comment on his look, which is pretty hip.  I especially like the hat.  Maybe he should be cast as Frank if they ever make a serious Sinatra biopic.

    • Snailstsichr

      I did the same thing when I saw the cars!

      I wonder what his T Shirt says?

    • Elaine Rodriguez

       Venice, California never even crossed my mind. I was about to write that this could not POSSIBLY be Venice, since there are cars behind him. Woops.

    • curiouserandcuriousest

      I was about to get all enraged that there was a Starbucks in Venice. Order has indeed been restored.

      I’d totally steal that jacket.

    • Susie Blackstock

      Me too! I was thinking “isn’t it flooding in Venice, we can’t hate him if  he’s at risk for cholera can we?” So now I can hate him for being hot, skinny, and in California. 

  • lulukittie

    He is serving us Ferris Bueller realness! 

    • MrsMaxPower

      Hahaha…I totally got a Duckie-vibe, so maybe it’s John Hughes realness.

  • uprightcitizen

    Wearing a stingy brim hat on the back of your head like that always signifies that A) you don’t have the right sized hat, B) you don’t know how that hat is supposed to be worn, and C) you’re just a tad douchey. But aside from that, he looks good. I love that quilted shirt-jacket, and living in SoCal, would wear the heck out of it as an alternative to a coat (which we pretty much never need). He gets extra points for actually looking for oncoming traffic before crossing the street, which is something people around here rarely do. 

    • MrsMaxPower

      I’d go with D) All of the above 😉

    • Vanja

       All I can see, is “Who’s that girl/Open your heart” era Madonna (hat&hair).

      • uprightcitizen

         LOL. Exactly. Papa Don’t Preach!

    •  I’m pretty sure we’ve seen ERW wear this hat, so I think he just borrowed it from the missus.

      • glennethph

        Oh yeah, I forgot that they just recently got married.

    • RebeccaKW

       I agree.  I like a fedora (most hats, really), but they must fit properly, otherwise I think you look ridiculous.

      But that coat is pretty great.

  • MrsMaxPower

    I do not like those pants…when I see guys rocking what appears to be a jeggins equivalent it just makes me think of the bassist from Fall Out Boy. 

    And maybe it’s just me, but I like it when guys thighs actually touch.  I prefer a guy with some thigh girth…like if he was in cords and started running he’d be at risk of starting a fire.

    • 909girl601world

       It’s not just you.  I like a man with some girth period.  These thin-boys are just not my speed at all.  I like a man to look…manly, not like a prepubescent kid.

    • RebeccaKW

      I’ve seen it several places, so I don’t know the origin, but to paraphrase “a man in skinny jeans is advertising ‘ladies, if it can fit in here, you don’t want it.”  So true.

      I want a man that looks like a man.  Not like I’m babysitting.  Also, agree on the girth issue.  I don’t want to have to open jars for the both of us.

      • MrsMaxPower

        I’ve never heard the “if it can fit in skinny jeans, you don’t want it” line, so thank you for introducing me to that. That is brilliant!

  • Jamie Bell is going to grow up to be Damian Lewis. Yum. Also, nice style. 🙂

  • DCSheehan

    Head to toe douchebag clothes.

  • margaret meyers

    Another quilted piece in neutral colors.  So manly.

  • snarkykitten

    are quilted coats a thing now?

  • quiltrx

    I was trying to understand what part of Venice this is LMAO…obviously I’m VERY tired from my boring work day!

  • mmc2315

    Take away the hat, and it’s all good.

  • Carrie Barnes

    Any guess as to who makes that quilted shirt?

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      The Amish?

  • To be skinny legged enough to pull of those jeans. Forget the quilted jacket, who do I have to cut for the suede shoes. Those look boss

    • no one? They are fantastically similar to Clarke’s desert boots. AKA the comfiest and most versatile shoes ever. Smart enough for nice trousers, casual enough for jeans. Cute enough for girls with shorts (or dresses, or jeans) manly enough for men (they were made for the desert!) and kickass for anybody in-between. OK, so the sole is a little different but for the price of the desert boots and how long they last a very real no-cut-necessary option 🙂

  • 3boysful

    Illustrates for us the importance of proportion.

    And having a presumably tres cher quilted shirt.

  • decormaven

    Great look; too bad the visage is set on scowl. Mad toddler!

  • l_c_ann

    I thought Venice was rather severely flooded right now.

    He’s not walking on water.

  • Jecca2244

    unrelated, but i must have a serious case of the travel bug because I kept thinking “that doesn’t look like Italy to me.” DUH. That jacket is perfect for him.

  • notterriblybitter

    I cannot abide the hat perched on the back of his head like that. That look belongs in some hipster’s OKCupid profile picture.

  • BR777BS

    Jacket and glasses. Where are they from? Where can I find poor-college-kid versions?

  • jw_ny

    It is a great look…on him.  Really though, any guy could wear that quilted shirt and those shoes.  It’s just the skinny pants that most guys can’t wear…switch to to a black denim that fit and ditch the hipster fedora. 

  • glennethph

    When you featured Andrew Garfield, it had me thinking who had a similar look — JBells (only a bit more grungier).  And if I’m not mistaken, they’re friends.

  • Mike Owens

    He is adorable. W-A-Y too adorable for Evan Rachel Wood.

  • Sorry-never been a fan of skinny jeans on men.  They remind me too much of leggings.

  • Truly_Outrageous

    Awww he’s a cutie. And I LOVE his shirt jacket.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    that jacket.

  • Oh those thighs..!
