Andrew Sullivan has just given up on his looks entirely
Yesterday Anderson Cooper instituted a roundtable of experts at the end of his show, in the vain delusion it will somehow boost sagging ratings. The guests were pretty much the people you always see on those roundtables (e.g. Christiane Amanpour), and Andrew Sullivan was there sporting chemistry teacher glasses and a gigantic graying beard the size of one of the Smith Brothers's.
This is the only image I could find of what he looks like now: like a crazy mountain man holed up in Montana. He won't even bother to dye the unsightly white streaks in his beard. Why has he given up completely?
He thinks he's a hipster with a big Brooklyn beard, despite being several generations too old.
He's fully embraced bear culture (after criticizing it and its conformity some years ago). Pity, he was quite cute in his younger years.
Beards were around before hipsters my friend.
He thinks he is Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
At least he's not wearing a hat.
Hipsters in hats must die.

Thank you. I really had no clue.
*eyes roll to the heavens*
Sullivan allowed himself to get old and totally betrayed the gay movement by aging like that. Shave the beard, get botoxed and a peel/lifestyle lift, dye the hair, get a toupee and a nice wardrobe - be as gay as you can.
[R7] So are you a hispter or just another fat guy with a beard?
He committed the fatal error of not giving a fuck what you think, OP.
I'm just a 48 year old gay man with a beard, r9.
I don't need to ask what you are. I can smell it from here.
Doesn't he have some enabler at home?
We look forward to his cameo in "The Hobbit: A Very Tedious Essay, Part II."
He always looked like a pig. Now he looks like a pig with a beard.
Agreed that the beard is too long in my opinion, but he's had a (trimmer) one for years, which looked fine. He blogs about his intense beard fetish regularly, so it's not like he's going to get rid of it.

Only the kah-weens dye.
You guys need to lay off him. He doesn't care about what y'all think about him. Most of you will never meet him.
What could be less masculine than a dyed beard?
AC had this old people who share space with young people a new dumb relaity T.V. show. AC looked like he belonged with the older crew. Gosh AC looks alot older than 45. The grey hair, the wrinkles on his face when they do a close up. He used to be so cute when he was younger, pictures of him as a kid, teen, in his early 20's. Somewhere starting like end of 1996 he started to age beyond his years. AC only has his blue eyes and fit trim bod that makes him seem somewhat appealing.
He looks gross but his face and body have been ravaged by HIV/AIDs. So, I feel for him that way.
r20 = wat

Why does he get exempt?

If you knew him, you'd know how incredibly untrue that is.

LOL, like he is Elizabeth II! He's hardly a huge untouchable celebrity. In fact, I've known him for twenty years--we met back in the late 80s and I've seen him around (and spoken to him) several times since in DC, Provincetown and NYC.
R22 AC looks older beyond his age. Last 16 years or so he has aged alot.
I saw Sullivan at Rockbar last Sunday wearing a flat cap and sporting that hideous beard. He's a decent human being (with flaws and stupid opinions, like we all have) but he looks like a mountain man. And he's a midget too.
I don't like his "opinions", his looks, or his writing. Never have.
He's an elderbear.
With all that money isn't there anything AC can do to stop the aging? You'd think he'd be able to buy some special treatments to preserve his youthfulness forever. I think I saw once that Streep and Hawn were pushing some vitamin injection that worked for them. Hawn still looks great.
Oh jeez another AC bashing thread disguised as something else. Do you never shut up with this obsession OP?
The show was actually interesting with Sullivan really going after John McCain and Christianne Amanpour over the Iraq war and their hawkish attitude on Syria. AC and Sullivan were fighting about how "fag" is used as a slur, AC thought it was unacceptable and Sullivan was saying he didn't really give a crap about it. I hope they keep this format regardless of the ratings, it was a good change.
And AC looks great for his age. Yes, I'm a fan, so what? If the haters can voice their opinions, the non-haters can to.
hope he's still able to get trained under the Dick Dock in Provincetown
Andrew's beard was hysterical, but I liked the show.
He's trying to cover his facial wasting from HIV.
It was an interesting panel. Sullivan and Amanpour were really going after each other over Syria. I had always though Amanpour was a liberal, but she out-hawked most Republicans on this issue. John McCain called in and was very dismissive of Sullivan. Jeffrey Toobin was perplexed by Andrew's nonchalance over the f-word.
Anderson Cooper has been in the sun way too much without sunscreen on his face and without wearing a hat to protect his face.
Andrew Sullivan looks absolutely hideous.
John McCain hates Sullivan.
Sullivan was NEVER CUTE!
Anderson looks fine. He's got good skin and a nice body. Still a hot man at 45 or 46.
I loved hearing John McCain getting told off by Sullivan and I could sense how angry the vile McCain was and how he probably wanted to curse Sullivan out and unleash a bunch of homophobic slurs on him. Someone needs to stand up to that nasty old man and I'm glad Sullivan didn't hold back.
Obviously he can't go on t.v. anymore with that beard, people will think he from ZZ Top.
[quote]Jeffrey Toobin was perplexed by Andrew's nonchalance over the f-word.
So was Anderson, it got kind of heated between him and Sullivan on this and AC doesn't usually like to get all out of sorts and worked up, but he was pissed.
You can't polish a turd! Besides, he's a rotten person whose looks match his personality.
I know, R37. He never had any looks to lose.
"You guys need to lay off him."
No. We need to continually pile ON him for his unrepentant hypocrisy and slathering analingus of the Bush crime syndicate.
"He doesn't care about what y'all think about him."
No, because he's a bottomless pit of self-absorbed narcissism.
"Most of you will never meet him."
I wish I could have been so lucky.
I'm pretty sure Sullivan does dye his beard. A couple of years ago he started dying it a far darker tone and was roundly criticized for it by his blog readership, in particular after a Maher appearance. He relented and it grew out rather grey and patterned(and looked great), quite different in appearance from the current version.
As someone who didn't know of or read him back in the day, that photo posted by r17 is startling (is that really him?).
It's like a real life Portrait of Dorian Gray
I think Sullivan hates Bush and the stance he himself took on the Iraq War, I give him credit for realizing he was dead wrong. I don't know what's wrong with Amanpour, she's a total hawk on Syria. I wasn't expecting her to agree with McCain.
[quote]Update: It looks like the panel format may be worth repeating. 10 PM’s “AC360″ placed first among all the cable news channels in adults 25-54, though it remained third in total viewers.
Demos are good so if they do a bit of promotion to get more viewers, they might continue the format. I didn't even know they were trying something new until AC tweeted right before the show aired.
I'll never forget his appearance on Bill Maher a few years ago. At the end the guests stood up to shake hands and chat while the credits rolled. Sully stood up unaware that the camera was catching him dig into his ass with one hand, scratching some itch.
You desperate cunts keep evoking the ghost of David E., as if he were the sole critic of this pompous stoner twat.
You're stupid and desperate.
He's old, fat, positive and known as a slut. What do his looks matter anymore?
He's absolutely vile.
I completely disagree with those of you who say he was never good-looking. He was actually quite handsome back in the day. All the pictures of him we've had so far have been very small: here's the Gap Ad he did when he was in his 20s when he was photographed by Annie Leibowitz.
Just about every gay guy I knew at Harvard desperately wanted to get into his pants back then (he had just taken time off from his Ph.D. back then to start work as the editor for the New Republic--he later went back and finished his doctorate).
He was my neighbor a few summers ago in Provincetown. We passed by each other numerous times in a day and he parked his bike right outside my unit. Never once did he say hello. Then one night at the end of the summer when I was having a few friends over(we were on the deck) he made a big deal of saying hello as he went by. Strange dude. His bf at the time was acting in some lame Provincetown productions; he was very handsome and really tall.
Come on guys, we all have let ourselves go at some point. Because when you feel like shit, you typically allow yourself to look like shit. The poor gal is probably just going through something. Nothing a stiff drink, clippers, a razor and a bottle of clairol can't fix.
He is so fucking GROSS
Can you imagine [R11's] back rolls.
He was a prissy twink. Once he seroconverted his doctor but him on testosterone therapy, that's when he got bearish. I don't have the link but I know I read an interview where he spoke about it.
AC needs to dye his hair brown atleast. That will make him look younger. On all things anderscooper.com They recently put up close ups of AC's face and boy does the man look weathered...
I don't think that was Andy's boyfriend R63. I think that's that 7 foot guy who has done virtually everybody in P-town.
Andy should make his dilettante husband share some of the steroids he's paying for.
Eighth hottest guy to have ever lived? I think not! One wonders whether their relationship is (partly) based on Andy's having to reassure himself that he hasn't had to "settle" for something "lesser"?
[quote]Come on guys, we all have let ourselves go at some point.
First of all, that's not true. Second of all, even if it were, we would hardly be clamoring to appear on television.
[quote]Nothing a stiff drink, clippers, a razor and a bottle of clairol can't fix.
Don't think that's going to get rid of either the fat or the facial wasting the beard is hiding.
He would also need a rug if he's going to be attractive. Baldness does not look good on fat short men.
No wonder Annie Leibowitz is bankrupt if that's the best picture she can take
R68, give it up. You're dying for more people to pile on and say how "ugly" and "old" Anderson is, but screw you. He still looks damn good for his age and judging from all the comments from men and women of all ages and races who say he's hot, you and the DL haters are in the minority.
Wasn't he with some younger guy with dark hair a few years ago and they were going to be married? Am I having memory loss?
R79, see R70.
Andrew wanted him to be an actor? Are they still together? I met an old boyfriend of AS. They all look the same. Also a bit snobbish for someone of humble origins.
He's a walking HIV virus at this point, just brimming with viral particles.
I thought he said he was undetectable R82
yes, the guy in the pic that (70) posted is the man I refer to.
[quote] Beards were around before hipsters my friend.
I'm a hipster beard
It's odd that considering how buttoned-up he used to be that he would turn into one of those people who wears his sexual fetishes on his sleeve.
