Ryan Phillippe in Miami

Posted on June 13, 2014

We’re heading out to Fire Island for the weekend, which requires no small amount of travel time, which means we have to keep things short and simple today.

It also means we’re in the mood for this:

Ryan-Phillippe-GOTS-Miami-Tom-Lorenzo-Site-TLO (1)Ryan Phillippe soaking up some sun in Miami, Florida.

Expect more where that came from today.

Now let’s all discuss his … style.

    Think he and Bradley Cooper drink the same juice each morning.

  • sienna elm

    What a great start to Sausage Friday! πŸ™‚ Thank you Uncles.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Re Fire Island: Does that mean we get a picture of the cat tank top?

    • @Biting Panda

      twitter stalking all day? check.

  • He’s in good shape for someone I haven’t seen poledancing in a while! But imdb says he’s got lots going on, so I guess his bikini body is ready to spring back into action.

    • Anna

      He wants everyone to know what he’s doing this summer!

      • Raspberry2012

        I see what you did there!

  • SugarSnap108

    I know it’s wrong, but I’m distracted by the tattoos that look like they were drawn by an untalented child. Does his arm say “WTF”?

    • I *think* it says WTE, but I don’t know WTF that means!

      • Sarah

        “Worse Than Expected.” Which is apt, considering the tat, which I believe to be a reference to the Mardi Gras Alligator King.

        • SugarSnap108

          Ah, mystery solved! The mystery of why he wants this permanently displayed on his arm remains.

          • Sarah

            Just guessing. Could be “Waiting To Exhale” because he loves Terry McMillan novels, and thinks that gators are regal…

        • sugarkane105

          Ah, I was thinking it was more along the lines of “Witherspoon Took Everything”

          • ROFL! πŸ™‚

          • Sarah


          • Raspberry2012

            For the win!!

            Aw shucks! Though I do see that KateShouldBeWorking’s plea for the cat tank is ahead – meaning, we MUST have proof of that shirt!

          • demidaemon


      • CakesOnAPlane

        I read that wrong and thought you said you didn’t know what WTF means, and for a second I was like, WTF? πŸ˜‰

        • shirab

          As Phil Dunphy explained in a very early Modern Family episode, when touting his ability to relate to kids today, it’s “Why the face?”

          • Jacqueline Wessel

            Phil also once said that LOL meant “Lots Of Love”, of course.

          • demidaemon

            It actually was the original acronym, amazingly. I learned this through my mom, when I was asking her why she put “Laugh Out Loud” on all her cards and little notes. The more you know. πŸ˜‰

          • Jacqueline Wessel

            Thanks, good to know more.

          • demidaemon

            No problem!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Yeah, the one on his back is pretty bad too. At first I thought it was a hand holding a gourd, but upon further inspection I think it’s an adult hand holding a child’s hand.

      • SugarSnap108

        Oh, I see it now! I thought it was a really poorly done dog’s head (I see a nose where the child’s fingers are.) I wish it were a disembodied hand holding a gourd, though.

        • I couldn’t decide between Afghan or Basset hound there.

      • fursa_saida

        Thank you, I could NOT parse it.

      • Constant Reader

        I thought it was a detailed drawing of the intersection of two bones — say, the humerus, elbow joint, and ulna in an arm. (Yes, I had to Google the correct names. I won’t lie to my fellow kittens.)

        • Patricia Groves Dobrowski

          I’m with you – thought it was a knee joint. Yikes.

    • KES4K

      Yeah I’m usually pretty live-and-let-live when it comes to tats, but those are awful, esp. the back piece.

      • Anna

        It also seems like a shame to mar THAT body with THOSE tats. Although I admit, I’m totally out of the loop when it comes to tattoo culture.

        • KinoEye

          I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE your avatar! Belle de Jour is one of my favorites. Come for the surrealism, stay for the Yves St. Laurent.

          • Anna


        • fursa_saida

          Nah, a bad tat is a bad tat. This is why I’m so cautious about getting a new one. I sit on every idea for MONTHS to make sure it’s just so, because I simply refuse to have a regrettable tattoo. I put my foot down. Spontaneity is not worth it, no matter how drunk you are.

          • KinoEye

            I’m thinking of getting my first, and thought it would be wise to wait and think about the design/research artists for several months before I commit. I know what I want, but not the exact design. I figure, it’s permanent — I can take my time to make sure it’s perfect.

      • SugarSnap108

        Yeah, nothing against tats — I have a few. But when a tat is bad, it’s bad.

        • Kimbolina

          I never understand how celebrities manage to get such terrible tattoos. You’re a millionaire. You can afford to go to any artist in the entire world. Hell, you can probably afford to personally fly them out to your house to do the tattoo. So why do they all look like crappy scratcher prison tattoos???

    • Danielle

      The back one looks like a scrotum in a deformed hand.

    • smayper

      I’m generally down on tattoos, so I discount my own “ick” response….but I was noticing that he has beautiful skin, and the tats kinda wreck it.

  • I have one word for you, Ryan. Speedo. Get one.

    • homofascist

      If I had that body you couldn’t get me out of a Speedo! Well, on second thought…

    • Trent

      Honestly, I’d rather see him in some Bob Benson shorts…

      • TO each his own, my friend. We all have our own little fantasy worlds. (grin)

        • demidaemon

          I’d like pictures of bboth, actually, so we can spread the love around. πŸ™‚

  • In_Stitches

    …he’s almost 40. How is this possible?

    • Trent

      WORD. And looking SO much hotter than when he was a 20-something twink. **wipes away drool**

      • Raspberry2012

        I know, this is downright yummy! Who cares about 40?

  • decormaven

    Just one of the regulars, toting his loot from CVS.

  • sugarkane105

    Sebastian’s still got it. Be still my preteen heart.

    • Deac82

      That swimming scene where we get a peek of his derriere confirmed my status as a big ole homo at the age of 16.

  • MarieLD

    It’s so foggy and wet on long island today. and we expect thunderstorms. but tomorrow is supposed to be lovely. happy travels. new york loves you.

  • queen b*tch

    The tattoo on his shoulder looks like a hand squeezing a ball sack.

    • It really does – but according to something I just found on Inked, apparently it is his son’s hand holding his grandfather’s hand?

    • kmk05

      I thought it was a sad cocker spaniel.

      • Sarah

        I thought it was a long-haired woman with weird lips and no eyes.

        • kmk05

          …And now it cannot be unseen.

        • KinoEye

          HAHAHAHA. When a tattoo looks like so many different (lame) things besides what it actually is, you know it’s a bad tat. A good example of what not to do as I explore my options for getting my first (!) tat.

          • Sarah

            Good luck! And if you are picking fonts, DO NOT choose a font which has a “T” that is uncial. I had to get that fixed because people thought it was a “C” and “Mama Cried” is not at ALL what I meant.

          • KinoEye

            No words for me, at least not at the moment — I’m trying to give myself a lot of time to think/save money before I go through with it. But, I’m 99.9% positive I want a black cat, for several different reasons πŸ™‚

            Ahahaha, “Mama Cried.” She cried after she tried, I guess.

          • Sarah

            Particularly galling because my moms was not a weeper, and I certainly regret every time I made her do it. What’s sad is my fiance has “Hard to Handle” on his forearm and it’s in cursive. Some people can’t READ cursive, these days. Tragic.

          • KinoEye

            Sigh. We live in a benighted age.

          • decormaven


          • Jacob Bowen

            Good advice, I’m hoping to get my first tattoo when summer ends (cause who wants to not be able to swim in the summer?)!

  • Wink

    Looking good. It’s time to see him in a film.

  • Jessica Freeman

    And good morning!

  • Vanja

    We’re heading out to Fire Island” Is it that time of year again?
    I’m always side eyeing people for choosing a tattoo artist who doesn’t know how to draw hands.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Love a man who shops at CVS

  • That’s some pretty terrible ink he’s sporting.

  • Some pedestrian-like tattoos going on there. Besides that, Ryan’s looking good.

  • marlie

    He’s in great shape, but I can’t get past the “eau de douche” to really appreciate it.

    (Edited for incoherence.)

  • ChaCha_70


  • Edward Thomas-Herrera

    Thank you. That’s all I want to say.

  • Introspective


    i’ll take all of this with a side of fries.

  • Glam Dixie

    Well Happy Friday the 13th Birthday to me and may I say, Dat Ass!

    • Happy Birthday!

      • Glam Dixie

        Thank you, I completely forgot about my Sausage Friday present from the Uncles. Nice bonus!

    • Sarah

      Happy Birthday, Glam! It’s gonna be wet but not so hot in VA today, so that’s nice.

      • Glam Dixie

        My hay fields are happy about the rain and thank you!

    • marlie

      Bon anniversaire!!

    • KinoEye

      Happy birthday! I’m sending virtual cocktails (or whatever your drink of choice might be) your way.

    • BLauD

      Happiest of days to you!

    • ashtangajunkie

      Happy birthday, Glam!

    • Raspberry2012

      Happy Birthday, Glam!

    • Glam Dixie

      Thank you, everyone!

    • Have a great day and Buon compleanno as they say in Italian!

    • decormaven

      Happy birthday to you! [Raises glass in your general direction.]

    • Jacob Bowen

      Happy Birthday!!! That ass is a GREAT birthday present!

  • Emily S

    It seems like a lifetime ago that he was with Reese Witherspoon. I know Reese isn’t T & L ‘s fave, but I’ve been turned off by him ever since he cheated on her.

    • Anna

      Same, I actually liked him better with Reese. The only role of his where I’ve ever found him endearing was in this movie called “Playing By Heart,” which had a fantastic ensemble cast (he played Angelina Jolie’s love interest!).

  • @Biting Panda

    That right there could take me away from all my woes.

  • joancarol

    Are those his prison tats?

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    Breakfast sausage!

  • kmk05

    I may be having palpitations. It’s great to see he outgrew his Justin Timberlake phase.

  • MilaXX

    Never realized he had so many tats

  • boweryboy

    Joe Jonas lite. I like his swim trunks and practical use of flipflops. The sunglasses are not doing it for me, nor is the rest.

    • marlie

      Actually, it’s the other way around. RP has been acting almost since before JJ was born. πŸ˜›

      • boweryboy

        Yeah, but it’s other way ’round for me. I think Joe Jonas is hot in a weird way. Ryan Phillippe not so much

  • LilyVanessi

    Looks like he might be getting a little sunburnt on his chest. I’ll volunteer to apply ointment….

  • Gatto Nero

    This will do nicely.
    Have a fabulous weekend, TLo!

  • Danielle


    • @Biting Panda

      i want to tickle them with my hair.

      • demidaemon


  • Leah Elzinga

    damn. those tats are TRAGIC. spoken as someone that loves ink, but fo’ real.

    • Anna

      Reminds me of how bad Jolie’s dragon tat and “Billy Bob” tat used to be – before she had the sense to laser that shiz. Bad tats are always bad…but they’re so much worse on pretty people. Maybe that makes me sound awful, but I can’t help but feel that way.

    • The tattoo’s ruin it for me. They are absurd. I love someone with some good work. I have a friend who has possibly the most beautiful tattoo I have ever seen, but this looks like his kid drew on him and he had it permanently inked on. Actually I hope that’s the case.

    • BLauD

      No joke. His back one looks remarkably like a pair of hands reaching through a vagina. I wonder if it’s for one of his kids…

  • Danielle

    By the way, can we put in requests for Sausage Friday? We need to objectify Chris Pratt’s new body for that tragic Jurassic Park remake.

    • Anna

      They had me at “Chris Pratt” and “male lead, rugged ex-military man.”

    • Sarah

      WHUT? No, say it ain’t so. Why Jurassic Park? That is ridiculous.

      • demidaemon

        Because dinosaurs always sell, even when the first version will be infinitely better. That’s how I explain it, at least.

  • I will like to point out that, Ryan has recently finished shooting a pilot for a TV show which we saw here in Australia called Secrets and Lies. The good thing about the US version if it does go ahead, it has Juliette Lewis as the detective.

    I do hope they change the storyline somewhat from what it was here, but either way I’ll tune in to see these two acting up a storm. I think Ryan is pretty fabulous in almost everything he acts in, and of course Juliette is incredible πŸ™‚

    • Juliette Lewis as a detective sounds very promising!

  • Jeremiah Capacillo

    The Jon Snow is strong in this one.

  • Ashley Ellen Wilson


  • ashtangajunkie

    I had no idea that he was hiding that business under his clothes. Did he let his children draw his tattoos?

  • Raspberry2012

    Can I just tell ya how much I truly love Sausage Friday? Not that I don’t love seeing gorgeous clothes and fabulous shoes and bags. But sometimes Sausage Friday just makes the week totally worth it.

  • BazoDee

    Oh I think my heart literally skipped a beat -although admittedly it was from the thumbnail and my long standing crush on Ryan Phillippe. The full pics aren’t bad but my imagination was better – I liked him a bit leaner/brawnier than bulky.

  • KendraMR

    Mm,mm good. His hotness outweighs those gawd awful tattoos.

    • Shawn EH

      The left shoulder one isn’t so bad.

    • FibonacciSequins

      My thoughts exactly.

  • stubbornthoughts


  • Shawn EH

    Nice tattoos. Only I don’t get the one on his back: what’s that hand holding?

    • raeb23

      it looks like a large hand holding a smaller one to me

  • macwell

    Wow. Just wow – again. I’ll have some of him and James Madsen please….:)

    • t bell

      Lord, can you imagine a double dose; I might not survive but it would be worth it.

      • macwell

        ****Spontaneously explodes****:)

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Love that shot where his glasses are reflecting orange. (And all the other shots, too … especially the wet ones!)

  • I could throw an angiocath from 30 paces and start an IV in one of those veins. (Once a nurse……)
    The tattoos are hideous. The pecs are glorious.

  • traceyishere

    Sand is now an accessory.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    TLO – Pines or Grove? I’m out this weekend as well.

  • txngyrrl

    This is a very nice way to start the Friday….but his style says douchebaggery to me all the way to the shoreline.

  • MoHub

    Sorry, but waistbands completely under the belly scare me.

    • If he would pull the shorts up, we could see more thigh. I see where you are going. πŸ˜‰

  • JG

    From a distance, the back tattoo is hard to decipher, but for all those saying he should get a better artist: it was done by a very well known artist named Mr. Cartoon. He did “pay for the best.” I’m hoping that up close it looks better…we are at a distance in a glare? Maybe?

  • LadyVimes

    Mmm. Thanks Uncles.

  • julnyes

    Those are some of the worst tattoos I have ever seen.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    He is just a big pile of MEH to me. Even the pecs don’t outweigh the overall waft of douche.

  • unbornfawn

    I’d call this a WERQ.

  • alyce1213

    He’s meh to me. The thought of you going to F.I. excites me more than pictures of Ryan. I love Fire Island and I’m so glad it’s come back after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. HAVE FUN!!!! Wear plenty of sunscreen (especially T).

  • ktr33

    yuck. he always looks dumb and pompous and boring.

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    “I’d rather kiss a tarantula.”

  • AnneElliot

    He’s cute but I’m so over tattoos.

  • You’d think he’s famous enough to afford a decent tattoo artist.

  • Question: what the hell is that tattoo on his R shoulder blade. A Star Wars Muppet? Anyone??

    • bringbackbeatles

      I was trying to figure that out too. When I zoom in on the tattoo it kind of looks like a dog,
