Chris Meloni at the JoyROCKS Event

Posted on September 27, 2013

Chris Meloni, you hot little Daddy. Here are the things we are going to forgive in the following pictures, just because you light our sparklers:


Chris Meloni attends the Joyful Heart Foundation presents JoyROCKS at Milk Studios in Los Angeles, California.


  1. Your wonky collar.
  2. An all-around slightly-off fit.
  3. What looks to us like either too much makeup, bronzer, or hair dye. Something’s just not quite natural with the coloring around your face.


Other than that, you’re golden, Mister. You may carry on being hot. Even in your pink gingham shirt. With pretty blue stars hidden in the placket to make you feel special. Even in your My Little Pony shirt, you, sir, remain hot.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      “You light our sparklers” is possibly the best thing you’ve ever written. LOVE.

      • tereliz

        “Even in your My Little Pony shirt, you, sir, remain hot.” second runner up. :)

    • Meredith_P

      He really is the hottest Daddy. Thank you, Uncles!

    • Sobaika

      He will NEVER not light my sparkler. Woof.

      • JosephLamour

        When I lived in New York like 10 years ago, he almost ran me over in his SUV on Fifth Avenue and 30something street — anyway I was all ready to cuss him out and I saw it was him and honestly thought “Well if I had to be hit by SOMEONE’S car.”

        • Gayer Than Thou

          I would have sued in a heartbeat. And then proposed a “settlement.”

    • H2olovngrl

      Are the eyebrows dyed? Too much blush? I can’t quite figure it out. Incidentally, I love that cutsie shirt he is wearing! Bronies4ever!

      • YoungSally

        That’s what i was thinking….or maybe they need a little manscaping.

      • Fanny_Trollope

        I think you’re right. It’s the eyebrows.

        • sojourneryouth

          They seem thicker than usual, so maybe that’s why. They seem to be growing ever further towards his lids.

      • Heather

        Yes, something is a bit off with the eyebrows. They need a trim, certainly, and he may have eyebrow pencil on (or maybe the bronzer got clogged in his eyebrow hair?). In any case, otherwise yummy. Have always liked him.

    • Mismarker

      His hair color looks off. Eyebrows look dyed as well. Still, love him. Those eyes!

      • H2olovngrl


        • Mismarker

          Great minds!

      • TonyGo

        Can you just imagine him with salt and pepper? Mrowr.

        • Mismarker

          I think salt and pepper may be his natural coloring? Hoping this current look is for a role though he is a foxy, foxy man whatever his shade of Miss Clairol!

      • Gayer Than Thou

        The whole effect is a little Madame Tussaud’s, but I’d still hit it.

    • International Model

      Fact! I refer to Law & Order: SVU as the “Do Me, Stabler” show.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Wasn’t that the official sub-subtitle?

        There’s so little point to watching it now that he’s gone.

        • International Model

          Without Meloni, there’s so little point, period.

        • sweetestsith

          To my shock, I LOVE the show with the new characters. It freshened things up, and I think they’re pretty great without be completely literal copies of previous loved characters.

          Granted, I was always in it for Olivia, so that helps. I’d keep watching if/when she goes though.

          • BuffaloBarbara

            Yeah, and I always found Olivia a little annoying — my least favorite of the SVU characters. So the more it’s focused on her, the less I can bestir myself to watch it.

            • Heather

              Though I covet her wardrobe – love how she runs after a suspect in those cashmere sweaters – and I always appreciate any show, but especially one on network television, that features a Woman of a Certain Age, and nonstandard beauty, as a sexual agent.

            • BuffaloBarbara

              I do appreciate her in the abstract, and love that the show does this. There’s just something about her as an individual character that always rubbed me the wrong way.

      • Wellworn

        My ex-husband got me hooked on this show. He would sit there and lust after Olivia and I was all about the Stabler. Now I’m divorced and there’s no Stabler. Guess which I miss more? Hint – it isn’t the hubs, it’s the hubba hubba.

    • hughman

      I LOVE his shirt!! There has GOT to be a Geigh lurking somewhere that recommended that to him.

      • Shawn EH

        He’s open to a lot.

    • frannyprof

      Love those baby blues of his. Never noticed them before! Sometimes all it takes to bring out a guy’s best feature is too much bronzer and a Pretty Pony shirt.

    • veriance

      He’s delicious! Where is the wedding band?? Hmm??

    • EdithP

      He will forever be Chris Keller, naked in the shower in Oz, in my mind.

      • carpediva

        Add “super hotly making out with Beecher” to this description and we’re golden. 😉

        • editrixie

          I hate prison-set things generally, so back when that was originally airing, I had my friends bring over the tape of that week’s episode and fast forward through everything that wasn’t Beecher-Keller Romance Theatre. I loooooved them. I still think their kiss in the laundry room was quite possibly the hottest kiss I have ever seen on film.

          • MartyBellerMask

            OK, I realize this is a super old comment, but I just binge-watched a 20-part supercut on youtbe of the Beecher-Keller “romance”. Look for user “GooferDusty”. It’s like 5 hours long all told.
            I had never gotten the Meloni thing before but I TOTALLY GET IT NOW. Keller is a sociopath, but shit he is hot.

            • editrixie

              Oh, thank you so much for the link. I’d actually love to watch it all again, since that kiss in the laundry room is still one of my all-time favorite, sexiest kisses in the history of ever.

              I always felt so guilty about my love for Keller because he’s such a horrible horrible person. But my god, yes, he’s scorching hot.

    • mjude

      my little pony shirt…..LOL!

    • Danielle

      Hoo lawdy *fans self*

    • kirkyo

      That wonky collar thing happened to me last weekend. I was traveling and just had to power through it.

      Also my face looks pink when I wear pink.

      See Chris. I get you.

    • LittleKarnak

      “My Little Pony shirt” LOL!!! I just love him, gingham and all!!!!

    • Tanya Wade

      One can forgive Freakshow anything.

    • wisenhar

      What I’m willing to forgive, nay, encourage, is the fact that his zipper appears to be down. Guh!

      • Frank Butterfield

        I do believe you are right. And I second your encouragement!

    • Clueless_Jock

      C’mon, how can pink gingham be hot?

      • conniemd

        Pink in general is a pretty hot color for men. Does something nice for their complexion when paired with navy, black or gray suits. It just is, and who cares if it’s gingham?

    • MilaXX

      I forget he has that body builder build under his suit. That requires quite a bit of tailoring and many be the reason for the wonky fit on the suit. The hair looks to be the culprit with the face. The top bit is either a rug or a bad dye job. Still I kinda flove those baby blues.

      • ewes_urn_aim

        I could be wrong but I think the pin represents domestic violence awareness. I saw Mariska Hargitay on Katie Couric’s show and that was the subject and they were wearing that pin, too.

      • cocohall

        The pin is for the No More Campaign. They are hoping it will become like the pink ribbon for breast cancer. She was on Katie Couric and the statistics she was quoting about domestic violence/rape/abuse were horrific. I find her a bit much on SVU, but she was impressive on Couric (and for once Couric did an entire show on one topic instead of flitting from segment to segment like all her ADD meds had run out). Hats off to Mariska for using her platform to raise awareness and make change.

    • Matthew Davie

      He’s a panty-dropper, full stop I don’t know any woman or gay man who doesn’t swoon at the mere mention of his name. And the fact he left his fly undone is insane. In the best possible way.

    • Shawn EH

      Maybe he just got some sun? Perfection in face and hair to me.

    • GillianHolroyd

      Isn’t that dark suit too formal for the shirt? I like both on him, but not together. (Trying to keep focussed here)

    • SublimatedRage

      {clutch the pearls}……….{swoon}……………{thud}

    • julnyes

      He used to do it for me until I saw him naked one too many times on Oz, which is an odd reaction, but there we go.

      • Bexxx

        Every time I see him all I think of is that scene where he’s in the hole and you have to watch him take like, a two minute naked piss into a bucket.

        • Daxx2513

          I have that scene saved.

    • marlie

      He looks mighty fine here.

      Also, is his fly open?

    • ErmengardeGreen

      LOL. Fantastic.

    • Orange Girl

      oh. that’s why SVU was so popular.

    • alyce1213

      I’m usually on here kvetching about jackets being too tight, which my TV boyfriend Chris has clearly been following, but he’s overcompensated. It’s just too big — in the shoulders, length, even the sleeves look too wide for his arms.

      Nonetheless, he is so great looking, so charming. I’ve missed him on SUV. And I adore that shirt.

      • conniemd

        I love that shirt too. Men need their own pop of color as well and a lot of men look really hot in pink.

    • jjtxgrrl

      Smells like hair dye to me!

      Men look so sexy with the grey hairs….its almost a travesty to dye them!!!

    • Linda LaPaz

      4. Your fly is open.

    • boweryboy

      Never heard of him, but he’s fuhine! I’ll take one Meloni with a side of Diggs please.

    • largishbearishAtlish

      “hot >>little<< daddy"?? I somehow suspect there is nothing "little" about this man….(drool)

    • JaCory Deon

      Looks like the beginning of a dye job but then they stopped at the sides. He is sexy though, under all of “that.”

      • liz crush

        Yes. You can see the stain on his forehead at the widow’s peak.
        Brows also too “done”.

        Swear off the color and go all S&P (or get a more masterful colorist).

    • Boobs Radley

      Woof! That shirt would look amazing on my bedroom floor. It will match the walls.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Oh yes. Oh yes he does. Yummy hot.
      ps TLo: I’m going to borrow ‘light our sparklers’ but promise to site you as the source

    • bellafigura1

      You know, I was really hoping he would turn up on the Season Premiere of SVU, to help Liv through her horrific trauma. Only El could have helped her feel safe again.

      I can see he was too busy being so HOT.

      • nancymae

        I just KNEW that Stabler would come barreling in and save the day. Oh, how I miss him.

    • e jerry powell


    • marshmallowjane

      Although I love the cast on SVU, it’s not the same without Chris Meloni. Benson is the show but so was Stabler.

      I’d love to see him in a perfectly fitting suit.

    • up with pod people

      His shirt needs 3d glasses to be viewed properly.

    • macwell

      He is a ‘daddy’ isn’t he? A hot daddy indeed . . 😉

    • Kristin McNamara

      I can haz him back on my TV now?

    • AnnaleighBelle

      I don’t know what it is about this man…

      There is a scene in SVU where Christine Lahti slaps Stabler across the face and he laughs…that always lights my personal sparkler.

      • bellafigura1

        Oh yes, know it well and yes, it’s re:mix to ignition for me too.

    • Veronica1022

      Yay for featuring Chris Meloni! I like my men big & alpha with a side of sexy

    • andi56

      I’m glad someone else mentioned the fly being down, because I noticed that, too!
      Anyone out there read Daniel Silva’s thrillers? Meloni is the only actor I can think of that could possibly play the Israeli Mossad agent, Gabriel Allon.

    • PastryGoddess

      There were words?

    • Gina Mondzelewski Small

      Sweet baby Jesus, he is so smokin’ hot

    • Wellworn

      Hubba hubba. I miss him on SVU. I didn’t even notice all the wonkiness and weird shirt until you pointed them out. Because it’s your job, I know. Carry on with your sparklers boys, just remember your fire safety rules.

    • quiltrx

      I actually love his MLP shirt. Somehow makes my sparkler shine a little brighter.

    • Call me Bee

      Yeah he’s cute. But he was such a dick on L&OSVU. Hated him. It was always about Elliot.

    • tmchale

      The middle of his hair looks like it was stained with Indian food.

    • ConnieBV

      I named my son after his TV character. Because I wanted him to be hot and I’m a good mother.
