Seth Rogen in Ermenegildo Zegna

Posted on December 13, 2012

This post is all about Seth, but let’s take a moment and genuflect in front of Barbra.

Seth Rogen (pictured with Barbra Streisand) attends the premiere of ‘The Guilt Trip’ in Los Angeles in Ermenegildo Zegna.

She’s SEVENTY goddamn years old. We don’t think it’s remotely possible that she didn’t have work done, but we have to say, it was EXCELLENT work. Nothing about her face has changed. Usually, when a 70-year-old looks like she can pass for a couple decades younger, her face doesn’t actually look like it did when she was a couple decades younger. But she looks exactly the same. She must’ve paid top dollar for that face. Her outfit’s pretty great, too – until you get down to the hem and shoes.

Anyway; him:

Despite the neckbeard and the little peek of belly sticking out past the vest, we wanted to compliment him on doing a good job of finding a look that maximizes his best assets and doing the work of showing up looking put together. We like this cut of suit on him. Tall, broad guys should try the wide lapeled three-piece with a thick tie. It tends to work very well for that body type.  If his pants weren’t so voluminous and fit him correctly, this would look pretty much perfect on him. We love the polka dot tie with the checked shirt. Sure, he’s not impeccable, but we think it’s probably too much to ask a guy like him to be impeccable. He put the work in and mostly hit the mark, so this is a win, as far as we’re concerned.

    I give up.

      My mom is 70 and she looks at least 15 years younger. Wouldn’t you know I’m my father’s doppelgänger (mustache included)? Those pesky genetics… 

  • Seth looks adorable.  I give him a pass on the minor issues, cause well,…I , ummmmm.  Just cause.

    • mshesterp

      It makes me want to go home immediately and watch Knocked Up.  I don’t know why I find him quite as adorable as I do…but I do.  He’s really grown into himself and I love that vaguely rumpled, bearded, stocky guy look (and the Seth of now and the Seth of Freaks and Geeks aren’t remotely in the same cuteness range).  And I freaking love his curly hair.

      • e jerry powell

         Because Seth Rogen is adorable.  Period.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      i am with you on seth because ummm too.

  • charlotte

    Who wouldn’t put work in for an appearance with Barbra Effing Streisand?

  • AnnaleighBelle

    Aww, little Seth is growing up….nice (although it looks like he’s sporting some hot pink lipstick).

  • get the f*ck out of this town…she’s 70?? 

  • FrayedMachine

    Ahhh Seth Rogen, my forever crush. Ever the cutie patootie~

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Barbra is my absolute favorite.  She does look amazing.  I always loved how she embraced the “look” of every decade and always looked fantastic and real.  I just watched A Star Is Born again the other day – and besides lusting after Kristofferson, I was reminded of how naturally beautiful she was then – in an afro no less!!

    • e jerry powell

       Isro.  Or Jewfro.

      (keepin’ it real for the bruthas and sistahs.)

      • “Isro” is pure awesome. Writing it down for future use.

      •  ISRO. how have i never heard that one before?! amazing.

  • Imasewsure

    They both look great. Not perfect but nicely put together. Hope the movie does well too since it seems like a fun pairing. You go Babs!!

  • Qitkat

    As they like to say, that portrait in the attic…

    Have always loved Barbra Streisand, I think I still have her first album, bought when it came out. [When albums were vinyl, and records were releases to get excited about.]

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      I loved those LP’s…I remember A Happening In Central Park and beautiful on the cover artwork for A Christmas Album…

      • e jerry powell

         I still can’t quite get over a nice Jewish girl recording a Christmas album even this many years later, but there it is.

        • Derek_anny

           The Christians have some very nice music, says the polytheist who regularly sings masses in chorus.

      • We had that album growing up!  JinglebellsJinglebellsJinglebells!

  • miagain

    I LOVE his smile in the third picture!!
    Babs is great… though I don’t like her stick straight hair or her outfit!

  • VeryClaire

    Is he wearing lipstick?

  • Chickadeep

    She’s like BUTTAH.

  • Put. On. A belt.  I know that I will ever be a Cassandra on this point, but a suit requires a belt.  It just does.

    That aside, he is one adorable bear cub.  And I wonder if La Streisand looks so natural because she didn’t want to do anything major to her face that might have affected her voice in anyway.

    • Tatiana Luján

      I agree with the belt thing. 

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Barbs, you awesome, crazy diva. Rock that lady suit and bling. Sidenote: ever since I saw that tv special about her house, I’ve never looked at her the same again.

    He looks very good, neckbeard aside. I’m always impressed when bros get it right.

  • I just saw him in “Take This Waltz” (a lovely film), and he was extraordinary in it. Please, let him never do another Doofus Dude movie again. His talents are being wasted.

    •  I just saw that too. I was all, you chose that doucheschnozzle over darling Seth Rogan? What?

      • Well, the doucheschnozzle WAS hot!! But yeah, I think she finally Got It at the end.

        •  Yeah, but hot in a douchey way. Did she really think she was going to go live with/marry/life-partner-up with that guy? He had seven year itch written all over him.

  • SapphoPoet

    SEVENTY? Wow. She must have a picture in her attic (in addition to a really good surgeon).

  • Tatiana Luján

    he looks absolutely adorable, I think I just fell in love with him.

  • jilly_d

    He’s adorable and that is a great suit. A+.

  • alyce1213

    My 20 yr old son bears a resemblance to him, so I think Seth Rogen is just the most adorable guy in the movies.  
    I have the same facial grooming problem with my kid. He likes to grow a beard on and off, but doesn’t want to put in the work.  I picked up the expression “neck pubes” from this blog and used it on him (horrors) — and that did the trick! I have to keep reminding him, but hey, it works.I’m a decade younger than Barbra, but I’m from NY, Jewish, blondish, in good shape . . .
    We’ve got to see this movie together! Hope it’s good.

    A note about Barbra’s face — yeah, she’s probably had a bit of gorgeous, expensive work done, but she’s been taking care of her skin really well for a long time.

    • Sara LaBatt

      I absolutely adore that you said “neck pubes” to your son.  I need to take some parenting notes over here!  Brilliant!

  • nannypoo

    She looks fabulous and that is not a surprise. But he also looks fabulous and I’m really impressed, not so much that he looks good but that he knew he would be photographed with her and he had the courtesy to dress appropriately. He looks like he’s proud to be escorting her.

    • e jerry powell

       More than Andre Agassi ever did.

    • MRC210

       And I was going to add that he is managing to pose without his hands in his pockets, then I scrolled down to the last photo.  When you are giving your arm to a lady, Seth, don’t put that hand in your pocket!  But otherwise a stellar effort. 

      • Derek_anny

         Every single picture his hand’s in his pockets.  Which isn’t helping the drape of his old pants.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    I’m giddy at the fact that Seth Rogen is here!  It’s like my two worlds are colliding and it’s everything I thought it could ever be!  

  •  So many people could learn from Barbra – as well as the quality of the work if it has been done, she has great makeup (no heavy lower eyeliner *ahem* Kate Middleton & SJP) and dresses for her shape.

    • e jerry powell

       I dunno.  Sometimes something in me wants to see the Barbra of the Egyptian cat-eye liner look.

      •  There is still room for that in her wardrobe! Just not every appearance.

  • My husband wore almost EXACTLY this to our wedding.  I picked well 🙂

  • Dorothy & Michael n/a

    I bought Babs’ “Passion for Design” book at a ridiculously low price on last year and even though I assumed she had more money than Oprah, seeing what she did to that home in Malibu cemented that assumption.  If anyone could afford to pay the highest price necessary for unrecognizable plastic surgery, she’d be the one.  And yet, she can’t get a tailor made pair of pants where she’s not tripping over the hem!

  • CeeQ

    Babs to plastic surgeon: “Doll, if you make me come out looking like my forehead is perpetually frozen or that my cheek bones can double as mirrors – you will never work in this town again. I want my face – just freshened up, hear? Now, proceed”

    Seth is all kinds of adorable here =)

  • kimmeister

    What I love about Barbara is, whatever work she’s had done on her face, it hasn’t been on her nose.  But is she wearing tights with open toed shoes?

    •  Isn’t there an old story that she was asked to have a nose job early on but she was worried that it would hurt her voice?

      • alyce1213

        Old story and true.

  • I don’t think I’d like a sleek and shiny Seth Rogan, he needs to be a tiny bit mussed up.  Barbra looks fab.


    Great suit for him.  He and I share the same build and I had the same issues (pre-80lb weight loss). We carry the bulk of our bulk above the waist which makes fitting a suit hard.  When you have a thicker midsection and very little ass, your pants tend to ride down pretty easily exposing the mid section peek a boo effect.  I found a pair of braces was the only way to correct this issue well. Or lossing 80lbs.  Which he doesn’t need to do, he carries his little extra very well most of the time these days

  • He looks great. And bangable (just sayin’… I’m in to those goofy types).

  • MilaXX

    She is Babra & can do no wrong as far as I am concerned.
    He transformed himself from the sloppy, stoner image a few years back and has maintained a look that merges his former stoner persona with a more grown up look. He gets major points for putting in the effort.

    • e jerry powell

      I’d ask Oprah about that “doing no wrong” thing, after the whole painted microphone incident.

      • MilaXX

        yeah that was a diva move

        • e jerry powell

          Serious diva move.

  • Love that you guys featured someone different!

  • I want Seth dressed like this when we walk down the aisle. Swoon. <3

  • Janet B

    Love that Seth isn’t wearing a dark suit, dark shirt and a dark tie.

  • isn’t seth considered a….uh…”bear”?  is that the name for it?  he looks adorable.

    • Catiline

      He is, and he knows it.  He did a hilarious interview on Conan where they showed naked fan art of him drawn by a bear aficionado.  I liked his attitude, he seemed to find it really funny in a not remotely mean way.

  • ellabob

    She looks f…. amazing!

  • B_C_J

    Love the combination of checked shirt and polka dotted tie. It’s visually striking and raises the  sight line to his charming face.  As for Barbra, she is a goddess. 

  • neofashionista

    i genuflect to barabara as well but still take exception to her dog collar even if it costs more than my car

  • maggiemaybe

    I love the polka dot tie with the checked shirt too! I want to go out and get them for my husband. Barbra is a goddess.

  • For him, this is a win- all he needs is just a little adjustment here and there

  • Anathema_Device

    Agree with everything you said, T Lo, but I just want to add that these two make an adorable pair. I might have to see the movie as a respite from the other, heavier holiday releases.

  • I can forgive a lot of things over a polka dot tie.
    I bow down to Babs. Seventy and killin’ it.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    She’s ‘like buttuh’. He is my favorite voice in Hollywood right now…so distinctive.

  • I am so in agreement with you on all points it probably just sounds like I am blowing sunshine up your asses. Seriously though, I was  having the EXACT same thoughts about Babs’ face. 70? She does not look 70. I don’t like her hair color much but that could be the lights and yes, it’s only the hem and shoes that are a little uncouth. The rest is fabulous. Oh yeah, that boy standing next to her looks good too.

  • traceyishere

    Yes, most recently she had a neck lift. She started with little tucks several years ago so the change is never drastic.

  • Scott Isaacs

    Seth is all kinds of adorable. That toothless grin makes me weak in the knees. He sure cleans up nice, ain’t?

    That tie dimple is giving ties around the world huge inferiority complexes.

    I wonder how Seth could wear a vest that doesnt show a peek-a-boo belly without the vest looking too long. Hike the pants up higher?

    And, um…who’s that woman on his arm? His mom? A costar of some sort?

  • formerlyAnon

    I find it reassuring that SOMEbody (besides Helen Mirren) has found a surgeon that can keep them looking younger-than-their-years and still like themselves.  I always find it kind of depressing when someone who is rich and connected shows up with recent “work” and looks strangely unlike any version of themselves that I remember from their  20/30/40-some years in the public eye.

  • Not bad Seth, not bad.  Barbra looks great too.

  • glennethph

    And at least he didn’t gain back all the weight he lost for The Green Hornet.  He looks great.

  • Belvane

    It wouldn’t surprise me to find out that she’s had NO work done. Her skin was always flawless and she’s well-known for eating healthfully and using top-dollar cosmetics, from an early age. And she’s let herself gain some weight, which always helps, as Catherine Deneuve famously said: At a certain age, you have to choose between your ass and your face.  Looks like Babs went with face.

  • It helps that she isn’t trying to pass for 20 — she has some lines, some sagging, some collagen loss, and she is wearing something that suits her looks, her personality and her age.  That will always make you look younger.

  • quiltrx

    I’d rather talk about Babs, so I’m going to.  She looks fabulous!  AND she looks like she’s having fun, which is the most important thing.

    But I’m afraid she saw Queen Helen in the dark hose and peeptoes and thought that was “a thing.”  Please no, you fabulous thing.

  • Barbra looks fabulous!  If you got the fame and you got the money you go get a top-notch plastic surgeon and get the face lifted and just say HELL NO to the Botox!

    As for Seth Rogen, I thought he was sexy back when he was rockin’ the chubby stoner look.  I like the suit on him; he looks classy.

  • KatieKissinger

    Clean up the neck beard and get a better fit on the pants, but overall he cleans up pretty well.  I love a man with facial hair but there is something about neck beard that I cannot stand for.  

  • sk8tfan

    I had no idea she was such a teeny thing, she has such a larger than life personality and talent. She looks great. I’ll even forgive the hem on the pants. just cuz it’s Barbra.

  • Above and beyond the whole Barbra’ness of it all (DIVINE) can we have a moment for her neckline?  I’m decades her junior and would kill for décolletage that smooth.

  • e jerry powell

    Do we know if this is a Donna Karan look Babs is in?

  • justice3003

    Jew also don’t crack too bad, especially since she kept weight on her. My mom is almost seventy and has no wrinkles. She’s chubby tho. 

  • amf0001

    I love their body language together,  she’s just like a real mother would be around him!

  • Cathy S

    He looks pretty good. How hard is she trying to show off her nails? They’re visible in every picture. 🙂 She looks great.

  • warnerave

    he is adorable, she is fab!

  • ccm800

    Agreed. Impeccable would be a misstep for him and his whole thang. 

  • I’m genuflecting in front of Barbra’s plastic surgeon, is what I’m doing! I hate the choker on her but I assume there are, uh, tactical reasons for it being there. And the nails. Let us praise the nails of Barbra.
