No shit, R10, R11. I don't really see much difference between your ideal muscleclone and the ones at the Weber link, except that yours if 50 y.o.
When he was young, he'd probably have given his left nut to be photographed by Bruce Weber.
I love that you found him at bathhouseaddict.com, btw. Who knew there was such a thing?
"I love that you found him at bathhouseaddict.com, btw. Who knew there was such a thing?"
I certainly didn't as I have never even set FOOT inside a bathhouse!
Anyway..you can keep the barely legal,insipid twinks for yourself with my blessing...just save the handsome,hairy men for me please.
Even if they DO look 50.
Is Bruce Webber jewish? It's always funny to me that jews like Ralph Lauren so idealize that WASPy ideal.
On the outside looking in, R18. I'm that way with Jewish stuff. I grew up in a neighborhood in NJ that was equal parts Irish, Italian, and Jewish. I loathed Catholicism from an early age, and so the Jewish "other" was my idea of the coolest thing possible.

Yes, how dare they? They should stick to this >>>
I was watching one of his movies. His favorite singer is Doris Day!
Loved his house. Is it in Montauk? Very unfussy place. Nice small pool in the garden and a sandy pathway through a picket fence onto the beach. Heaven!...and here I am stuck in London.
Are the orthodox/traditional jews the ones that only marry each other inbred? My friend was telling me this. He said that's why so many of the Eastern Euro jews look a like and have odd features?

OMG, I don't know.

How come he knows so much about this?
R29, Very religious Jews marry within their culture, believing that those raised with similar values have the best chance of happiness. Of course the couple must not be even distantly related. Physical appearance is not considered as important as inner beauty.
Less religious are also strongly encouraged to marry other Jews, and to raise Jewish children.
Many immigrants of all backgrounds idealize WASP images that they constantly see in the media. That doesn't mean they would be very happy partnered with one of them.
Miss Weber is an adamant heterosexualist.
His pictures are obviosuly taken for the "male gaze." Females wouldn't sexualize an image like this one.
If you watch the Pet Shop Boys documentary, in the Bruce Weber interview he comes off like a fat, bearded Liberace.
Why would such an intense "artist" feel the need to marry if he were strictly homosexual? He wouldn't; he's bi.
What I found odd, R41, was during the PSB interview, he surrounded himself with beautiful young men, but nary a woman in sight. For a het, he really loves to hang out with cute young men.
If he's straight, then I'm a pussy-hound.

So am I, and I can affirm Mr. Weber's raging heterosexuality!
Who was that photographer who took homoerotic pictures much like Bruce Weber's? I think he was also Jewish, but he was in great shape and had glasses and was pretty handsome. He may be dead now. I think he lived with his mother.
R45, Herb Ritts.
"Why would such an intense "artist" feel the need to marry if he were strictly homosexual?"
Why not? I get the impression that it's basically a platonic relationship between two pals.
Herb Ritts was gorgeous.
Whet Herb Ritts? Is he dead?
Ritts died of AIDS. Such a shame, I really loved his photography.
I read the Ralph Lauren biography (it was unauthorized), Genuine Authentic. Bruce Weber is NOT straight.
I'm guessing bi, that seems like the most likely case. There are a lot of bi celebrities (like Freddie Mercury, Frank Ocean, Gore Vidal) that get labelled as gay by default by the media.
Bruce Weber is gay...why in the fuck would you think he is straight? That's the damn dumbest thing I've ever heard of.
Why did Barry Diller marry? Barry and Bruce are a couple of fucked-up assholes.
Two things I know for sure, Bruce Weber and Barry Diller are gay men.
"There are a lot of bi celebrities (like Freddie Mercury, Frank Ocean, Gore Vidal) that get labelled as gay by default by the media."
If by "bi" you mean "guy who slept with one woman and 300000 men"
I think Barry Diller married because he wanted DVF's children to inherit his estate.
Has anybody really interrogated him about the Leni Riefenstahl-esque imagery he adores? It's so fascist, and the models look RETARDED. In a mall, I once walked past an Abercrombie and Twink store with a giant - I mean, giant - wall-size photo of a big, dumb platinum jock gazing down with his dim eyes. He looked so stupid I started laughing. A family of tourists saw me and started laughing too. The dorks with their shirts off at the entrance - do they still DO that?
