Michael Sheen at the 2014 PaleyFest “Masters of Sex” Event

Posted on March 25, 2014

Hi, Michael Sheen? Did you take your name literally or something? Is that why everything you’re wearing is so…

It does not, however, explain why it’s so boxy. It’s all very ’90s, from where we’re sitting, Michael. It’s time for an update. Here’s a start: Don’t wear wine-colored shirts with a suit. You do not manage a classy strip joint. There. See? Off you go.

    Shiny suits should only be sold to dudes who can present proof of advanced suit-wearing abilities. (No, Jeremy Renner, that does NOT mean you.)

    • Crystal

      Michael B. Jordan should wear a shiny suit. Or maybe Will Smith? Or Idris Elba?

      *takes a step back and realizes she just suggested 3 black guys*

      Um…. Tilda Swinton?

      • lunchcoma

        Michael, Idris, and Tilda all get Shiny Suit Passes. Alan Cumming gets one too. I’d consider giving one to Jared Leto, who knows what to do with shine, but he’s more a blazer kind of guy anyway.

        I’m unsure about Will Smith. I never remember what he wears, which isn’t a good sign.

        • FridaStaire

          Jude Law? But he wouldn’t….maybe part of the qualification is that while they theoretically could, they wouldn’t.

          • lunchcoma

            I’m seeing a couple links for Jude on Google Images that suggest otherwise! He’s pulling it off, so I’ll issue him a permit as well.

            I think part of the qualification might be knowing that a shiny suit is something that should only be deployed on rare occasions. Everyone who I think of as a regular shiny suit-wearer would be instantly denied one. (Yes, that means you, Mr. McConaughey. You’ve convinced me you can act, but your suit-wearing abilities are questionable at best.)

          • Crystal

            I just feel like Jude Law has that borderline-sketchy vibe that would not be served well by a shiny suit.

        • fursa_saida

          JGL could pull it off. Probably he’s done it once or twice already?

        • Crystal

          Will rocks plaid suits nicely, but I can’t remember him ever wearing a shiny suit. It could be creepy but I’d be interested in seeing it.

      • kimmeister

        Colin Firth wears a suit like nobody’s business, but I don’t see him going for a shiny one.

  • KinoEye

    It’s very manager of an “upscale” strip club — something owned by the Mafia. Kind of like a classier version of the club in Sopranos.

    I’m just waiting for him to direct me to the “champagne room” in the back for more… intimate dances.

    • Sarah

      I was thinking more “chintzy limo service guy,” actually. I think I saw that suit opening the doors on a stretch Hummer for some scantily clad ladies the other night.

      • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

        I was thinking more “It’s my Bar Mitzvah, and Uncle Motel, who is a tailor, got me this suit. It should still fit me when I graduate college.”

  • Anna

    Yecchh, Michael, no.

    On an unrelated note, I LOVE that you’re dating Sarah Silverman.

    • MarissaLG

      Really??? I’m on board with that relationship for sure.

      • Anna

        Awesome, right? They would definitely be on my list of hypothetical dinner party invitees.

        • Sarah

          Have you seen her commercial for Orbit gum? What is she doing that for, I wonder. But then, I wonder why certain people have been the voice of Applebee’s over the years, so I guess a big paycheck explains a lot.

          • Anna

            I have not, but yeah must be a sweet paycheck. Similar to Amy Sedaris doing those Downy commercials.

          • I love those Amy Sedaris Downy commericials. At least in her case it makes sense because it kinda ties into her I Like You and Simple Crafts “hostess” books (which you should pick up if you haven’t because they’re HI-larious!).

          • Anna

            Didn’t know about those, will have to check them out!

          • You must! They’re full color coffee table books that poke fun at the those ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s entertaining and how-to books.

          • Anna

            That sounds like something I’d very much enjoy, thanks for the recommendation! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Sarah

            My friend got me an autographed copy of that book! It is one of my most treasured things, because she signed it “To Sarah, Sommer says you’d love this, so make her right!”

    • Kate Andrews

      Yes, but they both need style interventions! But I’m impressed to see a Hollywood actor dating someone in his age group. That’s rare.

  • JP

    Now THIS is a guy who needs a beard. When he was in the UNDERWORLD movies, he was delicious. Without the facial hair I wouldn’t give him a second look.

  • Little_Olive

    Michael, darling, have your lady feed you some chicken broth and sweat it off by sleeping under 10 covers for a good 8 hours. You’ll feel much better in the morning.

  • Capt. Renault

    Appropriate, given that yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez spill.

    • demidaemon

      I wrote something similar. Brilliant minds think alike.

      • Capt. Renault

        Brilliant minds think alike, but I have no idea what happened in my case.

        • demidaemon


  • He’s such a cute little pixie. He should take style tips from Alan Cumming – he could do a lot more and a lot better.

  • Crystal

    Just because Matthew McConaughey paused his stream of constant dressing-like-a-strip-club-owner-in-Vegas attire does NOT mean you have to take up the torch, Michael Sheen. Stop it. STOP THIS.

  • demidaemon

    Like an oil slick. Or a head emerging from a tar pit.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Who made this shimmery suit?

    • Capt. Renault

      DuPont? Dow Chemical?

  • uprightcitizen

    When Joe Pesci sees that Sheen is wearing his suit, he’s gonna be pissed. I’d kind of like that jacket to wear with jeans, but as a suit? No thank you. Still think his Wesley Snipes on “30 Rock” was adorable.

  • Hysterectomypants

    Oh, he is far too charming and handsome to be wearing this. Someone help him!

  • Kate Andrews

    Well, and I’m not sure he needs to wear burgundy near his face at all. As a fellow pasty person, it washes me out (even more) and also emphasizes blemishes. Not good.

  • MartyBellerMask

    What is love? Baby don’t hurt me….
    (ETA- sorry if someone already said it. It had to be said. And I can’t see comments. AGAIN.)

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    Fashions by Hefty….

    And what is with the ears?

    • Marcia Taylor

      macro lobe syndrome…

  • MartyBellerMask

    Also, the lighting at PaleyFest is horrible. HORRIBLE.

  • Gatto Nero

    Yes, he’s very shiny.
    But still fabulous.

  • Danielle

    I must resist the urge to blot his jacket with a napkin.

  • decormaven

    This is what the oily bohunk wears, not this man.

  • ScarlettHarlot

    He is just so British.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      In a good way or a bad way?

      • ScarlettHarlot

        Neither. He just is. ๐Ÿ™‚

        He and Bill Nighy both just exude Britishness so much that it’s difficult for me to buy them as anything else. (Though I adore them both and will watch them in just about anything.)

        • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

          The Science Guy is British? ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • helene

            no that’s bill nye (sp?) bill nighy (sp?) is the british singing guy in Love Actually. and s.harlot is right about the britishness, in my book!!!!

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    Wow. Everything about him, from his hair to his suit to his skin seem very gray.

    Michael, I know you have a new girlfriend and everything, but come up for air and sunshine!

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    I can’t unsee Cruella de Vil hair in that last picture all of the pictures.

  • VicD

    Oh, who cares?!? LOVE HIM! His salt ‘n peppa hair is to die for.

  • It’s not even and in or out post, but OUT. The only saving grace here is I find him kind of attractive.

  • MilaXX

    and yet it’s not even close to the worse thing an male celeb has worn on the RC. In fact if he had a better shirt and a non shiny shoes, I would be okay with this boxy fit and all.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    That suit looks hard, like it would break if you sat down in it.

  • Tatiana Lujรกn

    I love this man and find him absolutely sexy, adorable, smart and intriguing.
    That being said, everything he’s wearing is ugly.
    His hair looks nice.

  • formerlyAnon

    I can tolerate a good bit of shiny, it has very positive, dapper, Rat Pack-era associations in my mind. But this was a big mistake.

    Nice shoes, though.

    (Edited for basic grammar.)
