- This picture is evocative...so much springs to mind.
- After seeing him in "A Single Man" I''ve become quite enamored with him. He''s amazingly beautiful but also changeable depending on how they style him. \
- of course, he''s beautiful...but i find models totally off putting. they must be a human nightmare!
- Thanks for starting a thread on him OP, he is divine. He has gotten so thin though, I hope he is not having issues.
- He is very skinny, but some Hispanic guys are just naturally ''flacucho'' that way. I''m in my late 20''s right now, and eat normally, and yet I''m still rail-thin.%0D\
And yes, I know that metabolisms slow down, and that I''m probably a whore, and that you think I live in a Cheeto-lacquered basement. Trust me - I''m enjoying the skinny stage now, before it fades with time.
- As if skinny were optimal, R8. Especially on a man.
- R7, the only issues I think he has is working in the fashion business, unfortunately skinny is the new black. He''s possibly been told not to put on wait by agent or whomever....
- I''ve been a fan of Jon since I first noticed him in A Single Man. He is one gorgeous looking man and just oozes sex.%0D\
R8, yes, he is thin, but hasn''t he always been thin? I don''t think he''s too thin either. I mean, not dangerously anyhow. I saw an interview where he said he eats a lot, since he''s Basque. He works out by running, but he could never cut out eating. He loves food. That''s what he said, it might have changed, but..%0D\
Oh, and btw, OP.. Sorry to say, but I think he''s straight.
- I have never dated a fat guy, but he is too thin for me,
- I need some ASS on my men.
- re: the picture @ r7 ----- Tel him to please give return Snookie''s hair. STAT.
- Newish interview..
- There are people, like OP, who rattle on about sex in a way that makes me wonder if they''ve ever had any. For example, they seem to think being "a bottom" is some kind of immutable fact about a person -- like being, say, "a Negro."
- Some people like that, R9. Otherwise, all our models would look like Jonah Hill.%0D\
Most people would consider him too thin, R11, but I think he''s probably alright, given that some people are just naturally built that way - hence my previous post.
To me being a bottom means you like to bottom, you prefer to do so and given the option you''d rather do it than top someone because that''s what you enjoy. %0D\
I, on the other hand, mostly top ''cause that''s what turns me on.
OP, The Hedonist
- OP/R18 there''s no reason to even discuss this, since he''s straight.
- R19, and you know this because.........
- [quote]To me being a bottom means you like to bottom, you prefer to do so and given the option you''d rather do it than top someone because that''s what you enjoy. I, on the other hand, mostly top ''cause that''s what turns me on.\
Oh, me too.
- He''s possibly been told not to put on ""wait"" by agent or whomever....%0D\
Oh my Mary, please go back to school...
- R22, LOL%0D\
Just a little slip when you''re in a hurry....%0D\
R22, I promise not to do it again if you blow me.
- R20, I''m not saying it''s impossible that he''s gay. I''m just saying that everything I''ve read, seen and heard about him is that he''s straight.
- I''ve seen him around a couple of times in Madrid. Sounds impossible, but even more beautiful in person. It almost hurts to look at him!
- Yeah! and so was his boyfriend Alfonso Bassave until they were caught red-handed walking the streets of Madrid. Must say, they looked good together, I would love to see them in action.
- Get the boy some paella, rapido, por favor.
- WTF?!?! R26, more dirt, please! What happened? Who is his bf? Got a pic?%0D\
Weird.. He always claims he''s straight. He always flirts with girls. Why does he need to do that? It''s not like there''s zero gay male models.. I mean, come on! I would understand bearding up if he was an actor, but as a model? Why?
- How can anyone think this hunk is straight??
- You surprise me R28, why did Ricky Martin pretend he was straight all these years??%0D\
Because he had an audience he needed to sell to.%0D\
The same happens here, he''s a model he''s selling his image, he''s selling sex. %0D\
Like it or not the gays are still a small minority and he needs to have mass appeal, especially in Spain, where despite everything people are still very conservative.
- "... until they were caught red-handed walking the streets of Madrid."\
- He''s soooo pretty...
- Somebody translate this:\
[quote]Jon Kortajarena es gay, sale con el actor de Dieta Mediterr%C3%83%C2%A1nea, Alfonso Bassave, hace ya un tiempo.
- JK is gay and been dating Dieta Mediteranea actor Alfonso Bassave for a while now.
Kortajarena Jon is gay, is dating the actor from Dieta Mediterranea, Alfonso Bassave, for some time.
- "Kortajarena Jon is gay, is dating the actor Mediterranean Diet, Alfonso Bassave, for some time."
- the lucky boyfriend...
- Madonna wanted to suck the life out of him (through his peen hole)\
[quote]Jon looked slightly uncomfortable with the attention but was, nonetheless, flattered. She has made some enquiries about him and has found out a bit more about some of his future modeling gigs in a bid to use her influence to his advantage. She is going to invite him to some social events in New York.
- Thanks for posting that, R32. He has a perfect face, and that hair, wow! I just can''t take my eyes off him. He is one gorgeous guy! The song was perfect too. %0D\
BTW, he is actually one of the top male models of today. He is very popular amongst the biggest fashion designers and has won many awards. %0D\
And to those of you who say he''s too thin.. Top male models are supposed to be thin. Only underwear models are supposed to be muscular. Most top male models are not muscular, only the "lesser" models are. It''s a fact.
- R37, the boyfriend is good looking, but not nearly as gorgeous as Jon. But to be honest, who can top that face, so to speak? lol. It would be impossible.
- Gorgeous. Holocaust victimy, but you know.
- Damn, I think the b.f. is hotter
- I am not attracted to Jon.
There, i said it!
- Jon and Alfonso
- Fine, I admit, he does looks a bit better when he''s not as thin as he is now, but well, he''s still hot imo.
- This is one of the rare times I agree w/ a hunk posting on DL.
- Do we know anything else about this gorgeous model?
- R47, what''s public knowledge:%0D\
He''s just turned 25. Comes from the north of Spain. I imagine, because of his accent in Spanish, his family is well off compared to your average Spaniard. He''s a taurus and he comes across as quite down-to-earth in interviews, no diva antics.%0D\
He''s also mentioned before -I''m not sure where-, that he''s happy he''s getting now where he wants to be in his modelling career. %0D\
I''m not sure he''s still going out with Bassave, ''cause he basically lives on a plane and has no time.
- Fan out DL Spaniards! We need to find out more about Jon.
- Thanks, R48. Interesting that he comes from a well off family. Can you tell that just from his accent?%0D\
Any other Spaniards here who knows anything else? Is he dating anyone now? Is he really gay, or bi? Why is he saying he''s straight?%0D\
BTW, nice pic, R50.
- not many infos, but a shitload of pics on his official site.
- I am almost never attracted to male fashion models. They look starved and emaciated. It baffles me other men could find men who look so unhealthy and sickly attractive.
- LOL, same thing hap[pened over in the Gerard Piqu%C3%83%C2%A9 thread. He isn''t gay. Gay spanish men are exclusivly into the circut clubs. \
Anyway Tom Ford is (as is D&G, Valinteno and Karl Largfeld) inamously self-loathing fags. There is no way Tom ord would hire a gay guy,no fashion designer would. And besides, there almost no gay male models, one famos model, can''t rerall his name, but he said there were only two gay male models, one is Nick Snider and the other one is some camp French queen.
- r54, if anyone thinks there are two gay male models, they are delusional! Two OUT gay models perhaps. \
r53, some of us agree that Jon would look better if he put on some weight. But fashion doesn''t call for that right now. He is still the hotness though.
- R54 = delusional straight fangurl troll. I''m not exactly taking her word for it. He might be straight, I don''t know. But R54 is a lame troll. Look at the writing style, same as all other trolling posts on DL. Definitely a delusional fangurl.
- Can''t wait for him to do a drag part in an Almodovar movie.
- queen :)
- Read in a magazine aprox. a year ago that they were searching a new house in Chueca(gay gay) There were even pictures of them together.
- Ok, In Spain which is the more trendy city, Madrid or Barcelona? Which is the city were all the cool hip people hang out.
- I don%C3%82%C2%B4t know , for me 50/50. Barcelona is a better city but Madrid%C3%82%C2%B4s nightlife is superb.
- r61, Madrid and Barcelona are both boring cities, Spain IS boring, trust me I was born there. People try to be PC about it and claim they have nice Paella or nightlife or whatever but it''s a conservative, poor, uninteresting place you go to for a couple of weeks or months and then you move on.
- WOW R63 you must be the soul of the party.
- Looks completely different (and better, IMHO) when he smiles.
http://www4.pictures.gi.zimbio.com/Dieta Mediterranea Madrid Premiere -iZk2dF5jEGl.jpg
- I found him very distracting in A Single Man. Not the good kind of distracting. I''m not sure why - maybe too contemporary-looking or modellish.
He''s a hot bitch, regardless
- Is that his girlfriend at r65, isn''t she the fanous Spanish modle that use to be married to Mark van der Loo? Esther Canadas.
- Also looks completely different when he''s not so ascetically thin.
- Just a little Jon
- I have to say, after seeing A Single Man, that print stills don''t do this guy have justice. He is truly beautiful, with a soulful magnetism that mere still shots don''t hint at.
- fuck, even his feet are pretty.
- R63, you sound like the most bitter, unpleasant queen in the world. In the first place, there is no comparison between Barcelona (a combination New York and San Francisco) and Madrid (a combination Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas).\
Conservative? They have gay marriage without even any argument. Compared to the U.S. or most other places, they are super-enlightened.\
What place do you like?
- You''re welcome. ;-)
- I normally don''t go for flat asses but Jon is a special case.
- 1 word: Perfection.
- He does nothing for me in photos but I could see he''s a real beauty in A Single Man. He looks really cheesy to me in photos. I really didn''t get those Tom Ford ads for years until I saw him in motion in A Single Man and was blown away.\
Oh, and gay. Liberace gay. Which is cool.
- [quote]Oh, and gay. Liberace gay. Which is cool.\
- All I needed to see, R58.\
- R28, I''m with you.\
Models hardly speak and they have to BEARD to stay in the industry?\
I don''t understand.\
It was funny, my brother''s girlfriend worked in fashion for years, and she said it was funny that people would say that no one of the male models were gay, because they were.\
Jon doesn''t have to be screaming from the roof tops, but give me a break.
- He''s beautiful. He has one of those giant Julia Roberts-like horse mouths...which I love.
- Jon in H&M!
http://www.tresdope.com/wp-content/gallery/jon-kortajarena/Jon Kortajarena H&M-3.jpeg
- More beautifulness
- and queeny-ness
- R83, talking on a phone makes you queeny?\
I want him to be a queen....just so I can imagine in my fantasies he''s have sex with me.\
(But they are only fantasies...he''d never have sex with my fat middle aged ass!)
- No R84 not speaking on the phone, just the attitude (please see R58 for further examples)
- He''s just skin and bones.
- Jon in the new H&M ad.. HOT!
- Jon''s hair has a mind of its own
- The World of Fashion is a weird place, R79.
- The only top male model that I absolutely know to be gay is the beautiful Cesar Casier. And then there''s the ugly Nick Snider. But Sean O''Pry and Jon Kortajarena definitely give off queeny gay vibes.
Jason Shaw''s closet
- I think Jon is gay too
- too girly, too thin...not enough masculinity and muscles.
- What is all this "too thin" bullshit?\
Too thin for what?
- I googled Cesar Casier, uber handsome. He must get plenty of who ever he wants.
- I''ve seen him at the gym.\
Not hung like a horse at all. Hung like a tiny mushroom in fact and he shaves making him look like he has a baby dick.
- Jon or Cesar r97?
- R97, at what gym? where?
- I can't believe this.. some reporter actually asked Jon if he had a BOYFRIEND... wow.. bold guy.. I wish more celeb reporters in Hollywood would ask that same question to the obvious closeted gays.
Anyways.. you can watch the video here.. so, what do you think? Is he gay or straight?
- Great face, so-so body.
- R102, he's supposed to be skinny. He's a high fashion model, not some cheap underwear model. Male models are supposed to be lanky and skinny, just like the female models.
- Male models - similar to ballet dancers or gymnasts - have to genetically possess certain attributes. Without these, they will not be competitive.
So it stands to reason that the 10% rule applies here. About 10% of male models seem to be gay. It's really more about symmetry and genetics with grooming and diet and exercise enhancing god given traits.
- I don't think the asking if you have a boyfriend or girlfriend is bold.
Reporters ask questions.
That said, it seems Jon thought the question was bold...which is strange because the Spanish tabloids have been printing pictures of him and his boyfriend on vacations and shit, so I hope he's not foolish enough to think he's hiding anything.
- Sorry for bumping this up, but I can't start threads. Does anyone know a commercial or promotional video that Jon Kortajarena did where he was seen dressing in his bedroom: he slipped on some jeans, a shirt, and some mocassinswhile music played?
- Has he come out
- There was a rumor he had a fling with fellow male supermodel Matt Gordon.
- Does anyone know what the first commercial is in this montage of clips where Jon is getting dressed?
- skinny minnie
- when did he come out?
- Does anyone know the name of the commercial at the beginning of this clip where they show Jon getting dressed?
- Fuuuck.. is he fine.
- Caterpillar eybrows
- Jon's rumoured bf, Spanish actor Alfonso Bassave, is quite a looker too.
- Mr Bassave at work:
- Now some Jon-Jon hotness:
- Oldies but Goodies:
- Sorry, this link should work:
- Oops let's try again:
- Is he slowly coming out? He's been tweeting more and more gay stuff lately. Is he hinting at something? One can only hope!
- Maybe he is gay after all.
- R126, I wonder if that comes from the rumors/pics of them together at the beach, or if the Spanish press know something we don't. Are they just assuming they're together, or do they know for sure? Because I'm very confused. Honestly, I think that Jon is gay/bi (and imho I think he'll come out fairly soon), but I don't think the pics of them together at the beach proved anything. They just looked "European". The actor guy could just be a friend. Let me just say again that I do think Jon is gay (or at the very least bi). I'm just not entirely convinced yet that the actor is his boyfriend. That said.. more and more websites are outing them as a couple, so maybe I'm wrong.. who knows.
- R126, that webpage says that he is currently in a relationship with actor Alfonso Bassabe
- So he isn't dating Alfonso, I read Jon has a long term girlfriend.
- R129 you're an idiot. He's gay. Where did you "read" that? Cuz I'm pretty sure you're just making it up.
- When you google Jon Kortajarena, you see "Partner: Alfonso Bassave" right under his picture on the right side of the page.
- R127 I'm assuming the Spanish press know something we don't know. If they don't and they're just saying that from a few pictures three years ago, that's kind of weird.
- R130, PLEASE don't feed the troll. Trolls feed off attention. Ignore it and it will eventually go away. We all know she doesn't have any proof. She just keeps saying the same thing over and over again, that doesn't make it true.
- Maybe he could be Ricky's new bf.
- That would be hot, R134. I doubt Jon is Ricky's type though.. or that Ricky is Jon's type.
- Jon has just been photographed with Welsh actor Luke Evans at the Amfar's Aids Gala on the French Riviera.
- ^ Here's a pic:
- One more:
- I wonder if Jon and Luke went as a couple? Or they just happened to meet on the red carpet...?
- Sorry, I still don't think Jon and Luke are a couple. Don't get me wrong, I think they're both gay. It's just.. what happened to Jon's boyfriend, Alfonso Bassave? And it looked like Luke was dating his hot male assistant. So yeah.. both gay, dating each other? More doubtful. Sorry, just my opinion.
- He and Gale Harold are going to be starring in a new sci fi movie together - they're a hot couple!
- If you image google Jon Kortajarena Luke Evans for the past week, you'll find they seemed to hang out all night.
- That's something I'll watch, R141.
- He looks like he smells. Needs to lose the beard and facial hair.
Very nice face, and as lean a body as you're gonna get, but he's model good looking, but not boyfriend kind of good looking, if you know what I mean?
I prefer real guys, not mannequins.
- New pic of Jon from D&G
- R143 Gale's movies never get seen by more than a few fangirls but the idea of him and Jon together is hot!
- He made another reference to Luke Evans on Instagram. It was harmless and doesn't prove anything per se. He just said he can't wait to see Dracula. I get a feeling they might be going out.. maybe Jon did break up with his hot actor boyfriend, or maybe he and Luke are just friends? Who knows. They definitely seem very close though!
- If he hasn't modeled in drag, he should. He'd be stunning.
- I seriously think Jon and Luke Evans are a couple. It's basically official now. They're opening up and they're appearing at events together. I think it's just a matter of time before they'll come out tbh.
- Jon took a pic of himself in front of an Hedwig and the Angry Inch poster and said it was his favorite Broadway play. He's so obvious even the most clueless and desperate fangirls are starting to see the signs that he's gay.
- I think it's obvious from the Luke Evans thread that Jon is straight but good friends with Luke who is gay or bi and just might be dating bisexual singer Duncan James from England.
- [quote]Luke who is gay or bi
Really with this? Luke is gay, he freely talked about being gay, he never described himself as bisexual.
- [R153] He did describe himself as bicurious on CAM4.
Sexuality isn't always fluid and since some people are so sensitive with labels let's just say these guys like to fuck men more often than not.
- Jon is out and as of last year had a Spanish movie star bf. It was not hidden, the bf was in his profile as relationship. One of the most beautiful faces in male modeling.
- Jon has been with alfonso for many years. Its common knowledge.
- [R155] Jon isn't out. He refuses to talk about his personal life telling an interviewer it was none of his business when asked about it. He wasn't necessarily open with Alfonso, the paparazzi caught them together a few times but they never speak about it. And I wouldn't call Alfonso a movie star. He does more TV and isn't very famous.
- R157 Everyone in the business knows that he is gay. He has been with Alfonso for years and they are a stunning couple. Ad far as him being just a TV star or whatever you with in your dreams you were as well known . Hateful cunt.
- [R158] Closeted doesn't mean people don't know, it means you aren't open or forthcoming about it. He hasn't been with Alfonso for a while and I have no desire to be well known. Facts are facts and me stating them has nothing to do with being hateful or a cunt. Grow up.
- Now it's pretty much confirmed he is gay, he has to be the world's hottest gay man.
- Oh yes. Steaming hot.
- Too thin. Beautiful face though.
- He would make a beautiful tranny
- Wonder if he hooked up with any other male models? Which other male models are gay?
- Good question, R164. The only other model I know is gay is Nicolas Ripoll. I'm sure there's a ton of closeted ones though.
- Nicolas Ripoll is also Spanish-speaking. It seems only the Spanish-speaking ones have the big hairy cojones to be out of he closet.
- As I previously stated, Jon is smoking hot. How I would love to bury my face in all that lucious hairiness.
- Another for our viewing pleasure....glad he is one of us even though I am way too old for him according to the rules someone posted earlier.
- Nikola Jovanovic but he has been dating Chris Fawcett for a while now.
- Excuse me R169 but why are you posting pics of those little twinks on this thread? Those two are not at all worthy.
- he sublet my apartment. didn't know who he was until now.
- R171 Full address please?
- R171 spill some details...what's he like? Is he as stunning in person as in pics? When did he sublet and long or short term? Jesus man give us something.
- r170 Nikola Jovanovic is pretty hot, probably more classically handsome than Jon, but Jon looks sexier.
- Jon's anus smells like rich Corinthian leather...
- He fixed baby boy's eyes. And he fucks me.
- Alfonso Bassave is the most masculine gay i have ever seen. He is beyond this world. I can't stop thinking about him. Just so obsessed.
- Chris Fawcett not worthy, R170? LMAO. AYNWY.
- More "not worthy" Chris Fawcett:
- Does any one here have any update on Alfonso Bassave? Does he have any new bf? Is he gay or bisexual? Do people in spain know about his sexuality? Is he in closet or glass closet? Internet tells nothing about him. Please.......some update.
- R178 & R179 neither of the twinks in the pic at R169 look like the guy in the pics you posted - the guy you posted is most definitely worthy. Since R169 pic disappeared, here it is again - are you telling me that one of these guys is the Chris that your post pictures?
- Yes, R181 R170. The one in red appears to be Chris Fawcett.
- I know Jon seems to be naturally hairy, but does anyone know if Luke is?
- I can eat the shit of Alfonso Bassavo.Our hollywood actors are zilch in front of this ridiculous piece of meat. Seriously bitches, no one has any update on him?
- Alf is perfection. My baby....
- When I google "Alfonso Bassave cock," R184, I get nothing. The nudest pic is one from DL, of David Gandy holding his cock.
I agree. Alfonso's amazing.
- Here you go r186.
- Thank you, R188.
- And this from the scene r186
- R190, thanks again. You've reminded me that it's better to type "Alfonso Bassave [italic]nudo[/italic] instead of Alfonso Bassave [italic]nude[/italic].
- I can't believe Jon dumped Alf for Luke.
- R192 Why not? Luke more famous. He has more opportunities to hobnob with movie types now since he wants to be a actor. With Alf all they did was walk around the beach.
- The beautiful boy has been honored with the keys to his city, quite an honor, good for him!
- But when he was with Alfonso, R193, he got to go home and fuck Alfonso at night.
- R195, Bassave was hot but hasn't aged well IMO.
- Alf is Spain's answer to Ryan Gosling. That swagger..wow.
- Is Alfonso openly gay in Spain? Or glass closeted ? I am not sure , according to his Instagram, he seems to be with a girl!!
- Alfonso maybe bisexual, that's why he and Jon split.
- r199 Did he date any other guy? He gives no gay vibes whatsoever. If he is gay, he will shatter every possible myths and stereotypes about gays.
- Jon Kortajarena is stunning!!!
- He has the type of look that gets real "ethnic" real fast as he ages. Same way gorgeous Nick Scotti turned into David Brenner.
- r198 According to his instagram, he does not appear to be with a girl. He's posted lots of photos with many different women and many different men, and no one more than any other.
- ya I found that fter checking all his posts. But neither does he seem to have a BF. Is he deep in closet?
- It's such a shame they are not together anymore: Bassave and Jon made a great couple. You should have seen them in Spain on the beach on holidays....
- R204, lots of people in Spain know he is gay. Spain is not he US no one cares
- here is Alfonso's Instagram.
- Those nipples. Awwwww....
- Is there anything cuter than this? This just made my day.
- Can anyone please tell me what he says in spanish at the beginning of the video @ r209 ?
- Who does he play in "A Single Man"? I haven't seen that film since it was first released in 2009.
- Supposed to be known for having a foot fetish. He was hired to worship women's feet in ads for Tom Ford and Brian Atwood; he then went the gay route and had his sneakered feet worshipped by an elderly male slave for DIESEL:
- R212 Beautiful face he has
- [quote]Who does he play in "A Single Man"?
The guy Colin's character meets at the 7-11 and smokes a cigarette with.
- I love the way Alfonso moves.
- He was hot in his prime around 2007. But now? Not so much imo. I'd still do him though.
- Jon is so hot I get hard looking at pics of him fully dressed.
- He's over the hill in model years now.
- R218 His career is flourishing and I'm sure he will be in demand for years to come. Female models have a short career window but male models, especially ones as hot as Jon, have much longer careers.
- Other than his face, I'm not impressed. His body is meh. He looks like he summers at Bergen-Belsen.
- R219 Clearly you know nothing about modeling. Female models make way more money & have way longer careers than male models. The top paid male model doesn't even match the salary of any female model in the top 15. Check Forbes list, most the top models have been highly ranked for 10+ years. Male models popularity and ranking change yearly.
Jon is doing well but he's past his prime. He's in that phase where he's kept around for nostalgic reasons.
- R221 Kept around for nostalgic reasons? Seriously? You think the fashion/advertising industries keep anyone around for nostalgic reasons? Really? In an Industry where literally everyone from designer to tea boy is profoundly insecure?
Nobody is kept around for nostalgic reasons. Jon Kortajarena is a fucking genius at giving the director/photographer exactly what he needs artistically and will pull out surprises that they didn't expect. He photographs BEAUTIFULLY in every kind of light. He brings a presence and an atmosphere to everything he does. Have you actually seen any of his work? Vogue named him one of the to 10 models of all time. There's a reason for that. He looks stunning. All the time. Even when he's goofing about. Maybe he's not your cup of tea (I'm sure it will very reciprocated) but no one could say he isn't profoundly good at what he does. He's in a position to pick and choose who wants to work for and very few models can say that.
- R220 = Luke Evans
- R223 I think you mean R219.
- R22 modeling isn't about always looking good. Remember the heroin chic phase? Kate Moss isn't a bombshell, neither is Cara D but they are very successful. Look at the other top male models, not all good looking. And of course models still get hired for nostalgic reasons. Donatella Versace brought back several retired models for one of her shows to return to the old glamazon model days.
Jon has a loyal following especially in Spain so I'm sure part of it is that he still garners attention (his new bf certainly helps in that regard) but he peaked a few years ago. And beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think Jon looks like smelly Elf half the time.
- R221 clearly you are wrong - see link below. Yes, female models make more than males, I suppose that's because women buy more clothes, more often, than men. However, the vast majority of female models are washed up by 25. Male models, and I mean the ones of Jon K's stature, can be successful well into their late 40's and even into their 50's. As R222 stated, Jon K has a gift - the camera loves him, even when he isn't modeling. He has a long career ahead of him, no question about it. I also hope he gets into acting, his short film will be coming out soon and maybe will help catapult him into more acting roles.
- R225 Donatella Versace did not use older models for nostalgic reasons. She hired them because it was novel and attention grabbing. They do whatever it takes to make the clothes look good, to be breaking new ground artistically, to create the right atmosphere and to garner the most attention. Those are the only reasons they hire people. They are constantly under pressure to be continually successful. Nobody hires people for nostalgic reasons.
- Now he maybe single, yay!
- He needs to add a few pounds.
- I guess this means the break up could be true.
- Since he's from Spain, is his first name pronounced HAHN?
- Anyone who says "Kate Moss isn't a bombshell" is immediately suspect - Kate's always has astonishing features, just because she was two pounds skinnier than the other obscenely skinny girls and they gave her stringy hair doesn't change the fundamentals - there's "ugly" and then there's "model ugly" -- "model ugly" is a whole other thing than real ugly
- There are few female model who last beyond age 30 but there are no hard and set rules.
Isabella Rossellini didn't start modeling until she was 28. At 30, she became the face of Lancôme, in 1982, and remained until 1996. Even when she was "retired"--fired--in her 40s, there were widespread complaints.
With male models, time is even less of an issue. The 18-22 A&F type models aren't as in demand as previously...as we've seen by the collapse of A&F. Hell, even Shake-n-bake still gets work occasionally though he hasn't aged in the way that "old" male models should.
- R231 more like 'yon'.
- Thanks, R234.
- So uber gorgeous Jon is single and gay, who should he date next, can he turn Armie Hammer gay?
- R236 That would be a hot pairing but Jon would have to get used to getting slapped around. Armie has said he likes rough sex.
- Now that he's single again and perhaps both he and Alfonso Bassave have learned what life is like without each other, it would be perfect if they got back together. It's just a little over a year since their split...they were hot together, and both being from Spain at least they speak the same language. Jon is way too good for LE.
- I wouldn't be surprised if Alfonso made a play for Jon, why it's all just fanboi conjecture, I doubt you'd see Jon being slutty like his ex Luke may be. Jon seesm to be a hopeless romantic.
- He has said that he is a hopeless romantic actually, and yes, I agree, I don't see him slutting around. He obviously wants a committed relationship, having been with Bassave for 5-7 years depending on who to believe.
- Bassave wasn't afraid to have his pic taken with Jon either, unlike Luke.
- There were also rumors Jon dated fellow model Matt Gordon.
- Wehn did Jon and Luke break up> And any idea why it happened? Did Luke cheated on him with another guy(or girl)?
There were several pics of Luke Evans and Jon on Just Jared having vacation together .And yes Just Jarred mentioned Jon as Luke 's boyfriend .So I don't think Luke was ashamed of pubic appearance with Jon.
- Just after the New Year, why I don't know.
- R246 there have been no pictures of them together since the November NYC pics when Jon was first referred to as Luke's "rumored boyfriend". Luke forbade any photos of them together the night of the Illustres ceremony in Bilbao according to all reports, and during the Holidays the photos taken were of them separately. By all accounts, Luke Evans avoids being photographed with any man that is rumored to be his boyfriend and this goes back a while. I respect tht they want their privacy but arriving/leaving separately to events etc. is pretty cowardly and simply serves to feed the idea that we, as gay men, should be ashamed of ourselves.
- Luke probably cheated on Jon, why I have no idea? Why cheat on one of the worlds most gorgeous men?
- [quote] Luke probably cheated on Jon, why I have no idea? Why cheat on one of the worlds most gorgeous men?
You think men cheat because their partner isn't gorgeous enough?
- You're probably right R249, clearly he did something that hurt Jon and let's face it, Luke has a history of not being able to control his, ummm, impulses (cam4 is a good example of this). Having followed Jon on Twitter for quite some time, I know he kind of wears his heart on his sleeve so to speak, and posts what's on his mind at the time. Luke was in Vegas the day that Jon posted the game over meme, followed by a few other posts that could have been interpreted as meaning a break up, with the final one being pretty clear ("Life always goes on"). Whatever actually happened I'm sure we'll never know but my money is on skanky Luke being the one who fucked up.
- It's probably less to do with skanky goings on than career worries.
- Luke was never into Jon he was just excited to add a model to his conquests.
- Does anyone know where Jon is? Is he still in Vienna?
