Pairs Division: Eckhart and Butler

Posted on April 04, 2013

We get to keep Aaron. Y’all can fight amongst yourselves for Gerard.


Aaron Eckhart and Gerard Butler attend the UK Premiere of ‘Olympus Has Fallen’ in London. Gerard in wearing a Dolce&Gabbana suit.

Boy, the camaraderie is overwhelming. We don’t know if we can handle such open displays of dudely respect and affection.

But as dreamy as we think Butt-chin’d Aaron is, it pains us to say that he fails on the style front. Taking it from the left:

HE: Looks like a bank manager in a cheap suit. An uncommonly good-looking bank manager, and one that would likely get us all flustered and making inadvertent double entendres about withdrawals and deposits to our internal horror, but still a bank manager. This is a classic “pulling a Jolie” move. Just because your face looks like it should be carved on the side of a mountain doesn’t mean you get to slack off on the style front, sir. Also, whoever powdered your face went at least a shade too light. But, even though those balloon-y, tree trunk pants make us wince, we have to at least give props for the correct hem length. Score: 5/10. We won’t admit how much of that is due to the butt chin.

HE: Hasn’t looked that impeccable in quite some time. We can’t even begin to say how grateful we are that he wore a white shirt. That whole lint-inspired trend of grey suit, grey tie, and grey shirt needs to be retired. The white adds some contrast and crispness to the look. Those are too many breaks over the hem for our tastes, but others would disagree. The slight neckbeard bugs, but at least he’s sporting a full beard instead of 4-days’ scraggly growth. And his hair looks good. Score: 8/10.

Combined score: 6.5/10, which is a crime when you’re dealing with this kind of raw material.

Now why don’t you boys both turn toward each other and make out for a few seconds? Just for T Lo.
