Ryan Reynolds at “The Voices” London Screening

Posted on April 29, 2014

We don’t know what it is about him, but his clothes always look weirdly costume-y to us. Like they’re not really his style or something.

Honestly? We’d wear any of this ourselves. But somehow it feels a little precious with him. Then again, we’d probably never pair these pieces together. Great coat, but the absent-minded professor vibe of the rest of it feels too studied somehow.

We will stipulate that this is totally subjective on our parts. But come on, doesn’t he look like a poser?

    My first thought was to wonder if he has the lead role in a remake of Dead Poet’s Society.

    • Karen Belgrad

      PS His posture/posing is so odd. I literally can’t see if he has a neck beard or proper shave. All pics are so ‘face-forward’. Weird.

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        Right – the “selfie-side” posing bugs…

      • Virginia Lee

        Yeah I think the outfit’s super cute, but what’s throwing it off is that he looks super hungover or something. Like his facial expression seems to say he has a massive headache and feels sweaty, and he’s all hunched over.

  • Glam Dixie

    Mr Rogers at a movie premiere.

    • Lori

      You take that back. Mr Rogers doesn’t deserve to be associated in any way with this douche canoe.

      • Glam Dixie

        Tell the douche canoe to give Mr Rogers his outfit back!

        • Lori

          Are we sure that’s a sweater and not a vest? If it’s a vest he didn’t get it from Mr Rogers.

          That’s it. It’s a vest. The douche canoe is solely responsible for it and Mr Rogers, may he rest in peace, is totally out this.

      • “Douche canoe” is my new favorite phrase.

        • Lori

          I know, right? I can’t claim credit for it, but I love using it.

          • ecallaw1977

            The Bloggess?

  • Is he cosplaying Professor Lupin?

  • sugarkane105

    He just needs the 80’s-style frames and he’d be Indiana Jones in the classroom scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I don’t know if it’s Ryan’s style, but me likey.

    • Ginger

      Oh please don’t ruin Professor Jones for me! HF was so hot in those movies…

      Edited to correct: I should’ve called him Doctor Jones (said in Short Round’s voice, of course).

      • sugarkane105

        Haha not my intention! Agreed, Harrison Ford will always be the ultimate manly man for me.

  • Nicholas

    They doing a Sherlock 3?

  • Froggae

    I never notice what he is wearing because my eyes are always too watery from the douche fumes.

  • Lori

    If the voices told him to wear these pieces together he needs to up his meds.

  • crash1212

    I really like this look. *shrug* What I don’t like is the angle at which these pictures are taken. Did they put the photographer up on a ladder or something? Perhaps they had to put the step and repeat next to a hillside? I do not understand. Not flattering at all.

    • Grumpy Girl

      yeah, it looks like the ceiling must be really low and he has to hunch. All very strange angles that play none of this to an advantage. The clothes look like they would feel really nice, and they look good–but they do not look like they belong on him. He looks like he wants to wear a T shirt and sweats.

  • Danielle

    It’s the beard. He looks like he’s about to tie you to the train tracks and then check his pocketwatch to see how much longer until the 3:10 to Carson City passes through.

    • KinoEye

      All he needs is a more pronounced mustache, and he’s Snidely Whiplash.

  • another_laura

    He always seems totally insincere to me, and that may say more about me than it does about him, because he’s just an actor doing his job. Wearing thousands of dollars of beautiful, un-showy yet lovingly coordinated clothing, and a [email protected] face. Maybe it wouldn’t bug if it were a [email protected] face? I dunno…..

    • Kitten Mittons

      I dunno, I get the same vibe from him so I don’t think it’s you. I always just chalked it up to him being a decent but not great actor. If he were a better actor, then his insincerity wouldn’t show through as much. I guess I’m more speaking about him in movies and interviews I’ve seen, and not necessarily about his clothes.

      This outfit fits that mold, though. It’s not bad, per se, but I just don’t buy it as his style. He’s trying to sell it, and it’s just not working.

  • Jacob Bowen

    I don’t care how his clothes look because YES PLEASE he is looking FINE!

    • holla

      I’d say, if it’s not his style, maybe he should take those clothes off.

  • CPK1

    total poser!

  • homofascist

    YaaaaaaaS! Me wantee it all (beard burn included).

  • Imasewsure

    Blimey, if it ain’t ol’ Profesor ‘enry ‘iggans as I lives and breves…

    What a tool

  • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

    I don’t know if he looks like a poser, but he still looks like a douchebag.

  • Dandesun

    He is serving Freud realness.

  • Eric Stott

    There’s a lot of affectation here- loosened tie AND sweater vest AND jacket collar flipped AND the carefully scuffed shoes. You’re right – a nice costume but a costume.

  • Nicole

    He suits jeans and a t shirt, which doesn’t really work for the red carpet.

  • @Biting Panda

    Gah. I’m in morning for the hawt guy he used to be. Funny, built, seemingly sensitive. But that’s all faded away. Now it’s all gerbil face, product placements and rumors of controlling, whiny pants behaviors.

  • Inspector_Gidget

    I think it might be because he himself is an action figure.

  • Mothra

    Who designed that perpetually furrowed brow because he is NAILING IT!

  • Posture & facial expression: this is how my boyfriend looks when he’s somewhat embarassed (usually about something he needn’t be embarassed about).

  • SophieCollier

    That facial expression is pure smarmy.

  • didgerdoni

    I don’t get this guy. He seems like such a tool. When people refer to his hotness, I go all Nipper/Scooby Doo, “Hurrr-rr?” I guess, objectively, he has qualities that should make him physically attractive, but they cannot overpower the strong douche miasma.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I think he is beautiful and I think this outfit is beyond hot on him.

  • Qitkat

    He’s just bummed because he wanted to be the first American to play The Doctor.

  • dickylarue

    He looks like he’s ready to talk to me about time travel.

  • MilaXX

    Yep, poor college professor seeking tenure.

  • fungstyle

    I think it’s cause he just looks like and has a long history of playing dudebros. Dudebros don’t dress like this.

  • latina fey

    could he possibly look more smug? ugh.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I have never liked him. Seems too generic and bro-ish to me. I have to say, the beard really works on him. Removes one layer of smarminess off the top. There are still several layers beneath that, as evidenced by his professor drag here. But thumbs up to the beard, though.

  • decormaven

    There’s something unfortunate about the face bronzer.

  • greymain

    just no…….ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  • LadyVimes

    Is he drunk? He looks like he hit the sauce hard before he showed up.

  • Whoa, Ry needs a vacation, or at least a lie-in. Catch up on your rest, bro!

  • Ashleigh

    He’s interestingly disinterested like so many other male stars…he looks like a newsie

  • Erica

    I have a friend who thinks he’s the bee’s knees. She maintains that he’s somewhat cross eyed, which makes his expression look like that in every picture. I’m not seeing it–either the crossed eyes or the attraction on her part. He’s tall… and that’s about all I can say about him.

  • CT14

    Every look is a douche-face. That adds to the costume-y feel.

    He doesn’t look like “himself”.

  • marlie

    High School history teacher on his way home from work. A hot, mostly-well-dressed HS history teacher, but still…

    • demidaemon

      She does have that effect.

  • GeoDiva

    Why does he look so boring? How did he manage to marry two of the hottest starlets? I just don’t get it.

  • malarson2

    He’s a bro, fo sho. But he IS from Canada…so maybe this is The Look there…?

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    oh my god i hate him so much, kittens.

  • quiltrx

    I don’t think he HAS a style, and that’s why it looks like the clothes are never right.
    But I will say, my heart will almost always pitter-patter for a curly forehead lock, regardless of the wearer.

  • sk8tfan

    Biggest problem I have with the coat is that it’s covering up those mighty fine abs.

  • IAmJ

    I can’t be trusted to judge any of his clothes because I’m preoccupied with hating his smarminess. Never see the hotness with him.

  • Total poser. But I wouldn’t kick him out of bed either.. 😛

  • gefeylich

    Total poser. But as he is married to a “fashion icon…” Ugh.

  • sleepycat

    3 things:

    1. LOVE the outfit and can’t wait to dress this way when I become a professor.
    2. I LOVE the beard. I think it gives him character, which I think he lacks when cleanshaven and while acting
    3. Clearly lacks talent to extrude any charisma. He is a hot body actor and that is about it. Still would tap it, though.

    • frenchette

      1. I’d sit in the front of your class.
      2. Love the beard for the same reason, but hate his haircut.
      3. Clearly you haven’t seen his work in films like Buried, The Nines, Smokin’ Aces, or his latest that he’s promoting here, The Voices. That’s ok, most people haven’t. But if you had you would know he is much more than a hot body.

  • Anne Elliot

    his eyes are to tiny

  • LadyLuck777

    See, I think he is a gold watch and a top hat away from being a hit at the local Steampunk party.

  • Jackie4g

    On my monitor, the colors are coming up grey and brown, and I don’t care for the combination. I like the individual pieces of this outfit, and the layering, but not the colors.

  • Ron Zank

    Looks a bit like he did a shoot for GQ and then negotiated to keep it. Doesn’t make it advisable. Add a different jacket and I might get on board.

  • Wink

    Looks like he’s playing the professor in a remake of “Lolita.” Quite handsome … in a mannequin sorta way, but I never got the whole ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ thing. Still don’t see it.

  • Susan Velazquez

    what the hell is up with his posing?

    • lalahartma

      Ha, all I thought was: Lol!

  • Lilithcat

    But come on, doesn’t he look like a poser?

    It is, I think, a matter of “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts”. If he just had one of the pieces, or even two, it wouldn’t be so bad, but put them all together, and, yes, he looks like a poser. Particularly with the jacket collar up. My fingers are just itching to reach up and fix it.

    And what’s with wearing one’s tie loose like that? I noticed Seth Rogen doing the same in this post: http://tomandlorenzo.com/2014/04/neighbors-la-premiere-les-boys/ Is this a new thing for guys? If so, make a note: Lilithcat does not approve.

    • formerlyAnon

      With you on the tie thing. Which someone remarked upon as a trend, recently. Shocking.

  • Shawn EH

    Total poser, including fake cowlick. But also hot.

  • KinoEye

    He looks a little off here, but it’s not the clothes… it’s that bizarre posing. The last picture is giving me creepy, drunk uncle or BOB from Twin Peaks. As boring and uninteresting as I find him, he can do much, much better than this.

  • Alexis Wenceslao

    He looks adorable.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Pack it up and send it to Benedict Cumberbatch.

  • NeenaJ

    Those grays and taupes are doing nothing for him. Color theory – it’s not just for Bitter Kittens, Ryan!

  • MannahattaMamma

    Why is he so hunched over, why the little itsy bitsy curl (TOTALLY accidental, I’m sure), why all the tweed? Just because a person is in London, a person doesn’t have to dress like bleedin’ ‘Enry “Iggins.

  • JP

    Love the coat, but yeah, he doesn’t strike me as a cardigan type. Benedict Cumberbatch rocks a cardi, but Ryan? Not even with the beard can he pull it off and look like it’s natural.

  • formerlyAnon

    For a perfectly good looking man, he bears a weird resemblance to Little Women‘s Professor Bhaer, somehow. Though he’s too young and too slim for my mental image of the character.

  • Pound of Salt

    The upturned collar was a step too far, I think

  • Michelle Gennari

    He just needs the patches on the elbows.

  • demidaemon

    I find more problems with the fact that everything is a different shade of gray. It’s making me twitchy, along with the weirdly shaped facial hair.

  • boldprint

    What’s with the douchebrows?

  • GinaGeo

    He looks like a guy who time-traveled to Tombstone in the 1880’s and is trying to look like he fits in using just the clothes in his suitcase.
