- 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?
- Poor Jon, is he still in love with Alfonso? Did Luke cheat on him? With who?
- He may be in Barcelona since 080 starts on Monday but I've been unable to find info on whether he's walking this year. He probably will, he has been a staple for the week for quite some time.
Imo he was probably a bit nostalgic throughout the past Holiday season as it was seemingly his first in years without Bassave. Also, he's pretty young so Bassave may have been his first real love which can certainly add to some pangs of regret as one faces the first big occasion without someone they've had in their life for so long. The sparkle was gone from his eyes for a while after the Holiday, but it's back now so hoping that he is moving on and happy with life.
- R416 from the Luke Evans thread, seems like CarlaFromSanSebastian only came here to share the alleged messages between Jon and Bassave and then she disappeared. I wonder who she actually is...she popped in just a day or two before the trouble in the Luke/Jon relationship happened. Makes you wonder, does Luke visit DL and perhaps here is where he found out? I can imagine him asking Jon just what kind of game he is playing in an explosive phone call from Vegas, prompting Jon's "Game Over!" post.
- You really shouldn't believe everything you read online,R257
- r257 Before Jon deleted the Game Over post he edited it to say "Game Over bye bye to holidays." So it didn't appear to be about Luke unless that edit was just a cover up.
Never thought that relationship would last. Luke had a boyfriend when he met Jon and moved on pretty fast. That seems to be his pattern.
They unfollowed each other at the same time which makes me think they got into a big argument about something.
- Yes I actually know that R258. Hence the words "alleged", "wonder", & "imagine".
- What was Luke doing in Las Vegas anyway?
Luke is in Paris now. He was seen on the eurostar train on Jan 30. Probably he is attending another fashion event or party.
I agree with you R256. Alfonso was his first serious love and they were dating for many years. Jon is a romantic guy and he can't hide his feelings.
I admire CarlaFromSanSebastian because she is very observant.
- Some electronics convention I think, which is pretty weird and random but whatever.
A new pic of Jon, love the hat!
- How are Jon's fangurls reacting to his obvious gay life, I use to go on fashion forum threads about models and mentioned I thought Jon was gay, his female fans ran me, sorta scary.
- R263 They are probably happy. If they can't have him they're happy no other female can. Never doubt the level of crazy in fangurls.
- R263 I've never seen any negative comment from anyone about him being gay, maybe you're experience was several years ago? I mean, he and Bassave would hold hands while walking down the street in Madrid so anyone who has followed his career from his rise on the international scene already knew. I wonder if it's the "Lukateers" attention that put a halt to his relationship with LE. Now I bet there was definitely some scary shit coming from that strange crowd of teeyboppers.
- R262 His hat says "CUNT." It should be sold in the DL Gift Shoppe.
- R266 there really should be a DL gift shop, we could make so many awesome t-shirts and hats with famous DL terms....we should start one and let all the unemployed DL'rs get a percentage of profit just to help out our brothers. Nah. Fuck that, let's get rich!
- Jon looks adorable in this video.
- R268 check this one
- He is 30 this year, he needs to quit smoking soon.
- Jon seems very genuine and amiable, interesting his Instagram pics after the break up seemed very introspective ,while Luke posted well lit selfies living the high life.
- R271 because Luke doesn't give a shit. He's Happy damnit
- Very Happy!!!
- Jon needs to publicly come out now.
- Crisis averted! Jon has followed Luke again on Instagram. I'm sure this means happily ever after NOT
- How do you have time to eat R275?
Are there teams of fraus who monitor Jon and Lukes's Instagram around the clock?
Do you ever trade notes with Gale Harold's stalkers?
- [quote] Do you ever trade notes with Gale Harold's stalkers?
That can tricky. Wi-fi is restricted in "the Home".
- I don't know why the Luke-hater brigade has descended upon Jon's thread but please take your hate back over to the Luke thread. Here, we are all just admiring Jon's perfect beauty.
- Jon is becoming a DL fave BECAUSE of his association with Luke. His thread won't have legs without that connection. He's not Colton Haynes.
- This thread is older than Luke's
- R275 Jon unfollowed Luke again on instagram LOL
What a silly game they are playing!
- So maybe Jon was the one who caused the break up. He's probably very demanding and needy. And he has the time to be, considering modelling doesn't occupy much headspace.
- Jon will end up with Alfonso in the end.
- I bet he misses Alfonso in his end.
- Do we know if Jon dated any fellow models?
- R285 we really don't know anything here, but we can make shit up with the best of them! Which fellow model would you like to think he dated?
- He has supposedly dated Mat Gordon.
- Jon will be a presenter at the Goya Awards on Saturday. Felicidades!
- @ least Jon dropped Luke, Jon was way2hot 4 Luke.
- Jon has a tattoo on the back of his neck. What is it? Any pics availabele?
- [quote] @ least Jon dropped Luke, Jon was way2hot 4 Luke.
Yes, Jon dropped Luke - unfollowed him on IG, then refollowed him, then unfollowed him again - all while Luke seemingly did nothing. It's a more logical conclusion that Luke dropped Jon, probably for his career. He's a mercenary about it, we know that.
They're probably still together and trying to dial down the attention.
- R291 Yes, they are likely still together just keeping it quiet. The Paris trip last week, Jon going to London early this week and also how positive Jon seems to be now. When they seemed to be on the outs Jon was miserable and it showed in his posts. He's melodramatic while Luke is more guarded. Opposites attract or just a recipe for disaster?
- I think Luke shares a similar impulsiveness (cam4, anyone?) but he's become more circumspect, publicly.
- R293 how long ago did cam4 happen? I was watching his old interviews from a few years ago and he presented himself so differently. Lots of laughter, silliness. Now he interviews so seriously and lacks personality. It must be tough to navigate the Hollywood machine.
- cam4 dates back to his theatre days. He was doing it at least up until the end of shooting Three Musketeers.
- R288 - I saw some photos of Jon at the Goya Awards. Man, he is looking bad. Wrinkled, tired, disheveled hair, unshaven, black bags under the eyes...In constrast, the same night in London, Luke looked pretty good in his tux. I'm still loving the Welshman even though he hasn't been consistent in his personal life.
A Little Luke Love
- R232 suspect you say? I'm going to say it:
KATE MOSS is a plain English girl, who got fingered by someone powerful and that elevated her to model stratospheric stardom. This was coupled to the need of the British fashion industry to sell themselves, they couldn't use black Naomi, they needed a white girl to sell the idea of Britishness and voila!
- R290 it's a tree, mostly just an outline. Hard to find a pic of it but they focus in on it in this video.
- R296 you must have mistaken someone else for Jon, he looked stunning last night.
- Oh and for some reason the pic showing is not him, you will have to follow the link to see his pic.
- R290 Great, thank you. I noticed the tattoo when he kissed Rossy.
- I think Jon & Luke are over, they whole idea of faking a break up to put some fangurls off the scent, since everyone in the media already knows Luke is gay, seems pointless.
- [quote] since everyone in the media already knows Luke is gay, seems pointless.
It's not about whether they know, it's about how much they promote it.
There are still people out there who know NPH but don't know he's gay. Check out NPH interviews on YT. That's the kind of ignorance Luke's team are hoping will serve him.
- R302 I also think they had a falling out early in the year and have patched things up. They are not faking a break up for fangirls; perhaps just laying low.
- The people who don't know Luke Evans is gay are people who don't care who Luke Evans is.
- [quote] The people who don't know Luke Evans is gay are people who don't care who Luke Evans is.
Disagree. He's mainly made action movies - who watches them, mostly? Clueless straight people.
Just like the clueless straights who watched NPH on How I Met Your Mother but wouldn't dream of watching the Tonys.
- Action movies? Luke Evans is B minus at best, deal with it bitches. While Jon is A list in his profession of male modelling.
- What is confusing you about the term "Action movies"?
- That you think Luke Evans stars in them.
- He didn't star in Dracula Untold? Is that a worthy costume drama in your eyes?
- More bland non-horror horror fantasy adventure than actual action movie.
- I think we're splitting hairs here.
- @307 if Luke Evans is bminus what is Matt bomer?
- Matt Bomer is a TV actor who's gotten some featured roles in movies.
- A golden globe winner.
- I don't think it's really a diss to describe Evans as B-List. Very few are A-List. If there were lots of people at the very top, it wouldn't be as venerated.
- Excess smoking, drinking, partying and constant travel have taken their toll on Jon's looks. He's not even 30 years old yet and he currently looks like a poster boy for the "heroin chic" model trend that was so popular a while back. He may have been attractive circa 2009 when he was in the film, "A Single Man" but I don't find him very appealing now.
- Jon has such strong features that he can probably still be hot while also "weathered". Luke won't be half as striking when he's 50.
- Sorry girls I don't understand why my thread has been co-opted by Luke Evans 'lovers'. This is NOT a Luke Evans thread if you are not prepared to talk about Jon, I'm going to have to ask to leave....
P.D. Luke Evans is monstrously ugly, he can only do fantasy and vampire films. What normal person looks like him. If you saw him walking down the street you would do a runner. I mean, let's be honest...is career will be short-lived whilst Jon will age quite well.
- Jon Kortajarena is beautiful. Luke Evans I never heard of before DL, and I never hear of except on DL.
- Funny you should say that. Jon has sort of a feral appeal - a little Wolvish.
You can't issue directives about no Luke. Their relationship is the main point of interest.
- [quote]You can't issue directives about no Luke. Their relationship is the main point of interest.
Maybe for you, R321. I could not care less about Luke.
- [quote] Maybe for you, [R321]. I could not care less about Luke.
I appreciate your correct use of not. Far too many people write "I could care less".
As for which of us in the majority, well, we'll see how the thread progresses.
Male model threads don't tend to go very far on here. People are more interested in who they're fucking than their hobbies, who they are, who they were, who they hope to be etc.
- R323, sure we'll see. But for holding no appeal to the 'majority' this thread has had an unusual long life, 3-4 years is a long time, don't you think?
- The letter k, along with the letter w, does not occur naturally in the Spanish language. Words that begin with k in Spanish and even words that contain the letter k have their origins outside the Spanish-speaking world.
So his given name is probably something like Juan Lopez.
Who cares? He's hot.
- He's Basque, and his name is Jon Kortajarena Redruello. I'm with OP, had not heard of Evans until Jon started dating him.
Carla in the LE thread mentioned a 'Gordon' that Jon dated, anyone know who she's talking about? Maybe Matt Gordon (whom I've heard rumors about)? I only know of his long relationship with Bassave...who btw was at Los Goyas last night, wonder if he & Jon had any interaction? Oh to be a fly on the wall...except without the disgusting shit that comes with being a fly.
- Alfonso Bassave was not at the Goyas, r326. He stayed at home and posted a pic from a previous year. He had a few people over. Check his instagram.
- What is "the Goyas"?
- R328 Los Premios Goya are the Goya Awards or Goyas for short. It's the annual Spanish a Film Awrds. A bit like Bafta film awards in the Uk. Winners get a statue of Goya.s head, hence the name.
- Gracias, R329.
- Spanish BAFTAs.
- Happy to have my friend in Lanzarote, he says.
Was he consoling himself with this 'friend' as soon as problems surfaced with Luke?
- Everything is back to normal now. Jon attended the 2015 BAFTA After Party in London.
- So he flew to Madrid then flew straight back. He must be exhausted. Hope he gets some decent sleep and some decent food.
R332 That "friend" is Sebastian Faena. He's a really successful photographer who works with Jon a lot. They really are just friends.
- 1st Feb-"thank you Paris"obviously there with Luke
patching things up.
2nd Feb- 080 Barcelona
4th Feb- London, Shoreditch house
7th Feb- Goya awards
8th Feb- London, BAFTA after party.
Wow! I hope Luke is worth it!!
- Omg I hope he gets some rest.
- R318 - When you compare Jon now with his 2009 face in "A Single Man", it's quite striking to me how considerably he's aged. Jon is looking haggard and it shows on his face. His body even looks fragile and ready to break (take a look at his bird legs). Fortunately, there is Photoshop to help with the ravages of time. Luke is only 35, already looks fifty and I still find him ruggedly handsome. I guess people have different tastes in men.
- R337 I don't really care what Luke looks like. He is going to have a short career and he's not gong to last in Jon's life.
- One of the model forums says that Jon has B.O. Like many Euros he does not bathe regularly or uses deodorant.
- [quote]Jon Kortajarena is beautiful. Luke Evans I never heard of before DL, and I never hear of except on DL.
I find a lot of male models leave me cold but Jon has an unbelievably hot, sensual look. (Comes across as sweet as well.)
LE, on the other hand, looks like Orlando Bloom's father although Bloom is actually a couple of years older.
- A lot of top in demand models have BO issues because they simply run from show to show, from plane to casting to show to plane to photo shoot,m it is rather hectic and hot. they have no time or place to shower. I've heard of supermodels washing their pits in makeshift bathrooms after shows or carrying wet wipes to refresh themselves during fashion week.
- Tatoo and BO... Jon gets less attractive by the day. Sorry, I don't care how busy you are, there's no excuse for BO.
- Is this the Luke Evans thread?
- No R343
- R341 don't worry Jon has no BO issues. I have no idea where some people came up with this rubbish.
- This is the MRS Luke Evans Thread, chico.
- Possible girlfriend?
- I'm sure he's bi
- R318, I agree, he really did age faster than his years, unless of course he lied about his age.
- So funny guys here botch about Jon's looks, when truth is if you say him you'd be floored by his beauty.
- R354. He seems to really just like people. It's a gift. And people like him back. There's a lesson there somewhere.
As for this European thing of having BO that keeps getting bandied about... That's crap. Probably the Bitterness Troll again who hates all celebs. I've read lots of people who worked with him saying that he also smells divine or words to that effect.
The Bitterness Troll just makes up anything about anyone who he feels hatred towards (which is anybody in the limelight, especially if they are good looking or successful. ) Just ignore him. He is on all the celeb threads being vile about them. It's the same poster. You think DL is full of vile people?
Its that one single person who sits at his PC getting fatter, and more ugly, and more bitter every day. Changes his IP every few minutes so it doesn't show on trolldar. Bear that in mind.
- I agree R359. Jon is well liked and comes across as being very sweet and sincere and that is a gift. Also, he is stunning, and in person even more so. Anyone putting him down here is clearly jealous.
- He has a pig nose.
- R361 Ha ha ha ha ha! Seriously? One of the most beautiful men on the entire planet? Has a pig nose? Is that the best you can do? He has gorgeous facial features. People employ him because he is beautiful and can create chemistry with a brick wall with his sensual personality. Move on Trollipops, you're wasting your breath if you're going try to put down JK by picking on his physicality.
- He always looks like he smells. Scrawny little weasel.
- Is he Jewish?
- His face reminds me of Ratatouille
- R365 :
- Jon sure gets around! Barcelona for 080 then London mid last week then Madrid Saturday, back to London Sunday, now back in Madrid! It wears me out just to think of all that air travel.
- It's been like he's commuting from London to be with Luke. Good luck to them.
- Jon is currently in Spain rehearsing for a movie
according to his instangram.
- Could Jon become a movie star in Spain or would he be pigeonholed by his sexuality? I mean, the tabloids have speculated enough about him that a lot of people know...
- Both he and Luke are listed in Out Magazines top 100 eligible gay men, someone should let Out know that they're taken.
- They also have Lee Pace R371,someone should let
them know about him as well.
- how come Lee Pace'. Publisher are not suing OUT magazine?Lee Pace is not out yet.And his PR is very protective about his sexuality. ON IMDB board there are still lot of fan gurls who belive that Lee is not gay.
- Add Patrick Dampsey to that list too
- Why is the married Johnny Weir on the list of the most eligible bachelors? Did he and his husband break up again? If so, how many times will this be? Photoshopped Jon is in his underwear and Luke took his own selfie photo. "Out" mag is very original.
- R365 - thank you for giving me a much needed laugh today. Jon Ratatouille indeed!
- Lmao poor Lee, being outed over and over again, even though he's still in the closet.
- Patrick Dampsey R374 ??
- Patrick Dempsey, poster-boy for plastic surgery. Notorious cross dresser.
- Lee was on OUT 100 LIST even before you dimwits. If he didn't sue them before, he won't sue them now. Anyway Lee is a chilled out guy, he won't do such stuff. I wish they had Richard Armitage in it too.
- BTW who is this Matthew Risch guy on that list? He is smoking handsome.
- I don't think Lee cares, he doesn't have to say one way or the other.
Last I heard, Greg Araki had married a woman...I don't know why.
- Kortajarena seems like a good guy, unlike Luke Evans. I don't think that Luke is really cool. He seems very frivolous. He is surely handsome though and i think that in their relo, Kortajarena is the bottom guy.
- Jon has been listed on OUTs 100 hottest bachelors, so vote for him.
- Re: 384
So is Luke Evans.
- Thanks for the link R385. Lots of hot and/or interesting guys then you see that sicko Bryan Singer.
Who's voting?--Adam Lambert is #1...???
- I voted for Jon, of course!
- R221 R222 R225 R226
He said he'll work as a model until age 32
(2:49 - 3:34 min)
R231 R234 R325
Jon is a basque name (also a Hebrew name), it's one of the most popular names in the Basque Country such as Iker, Ander, Unai, Aitor, Markel, Ibai, Aritz..etc
Kortajarena is a basque surname
Redruello is a Castilian surname, on his mother's side of the family comes from Andalucia (Southern Spain) immigrants to the Bizkaia/Basque Country(Industrial region)
His mother Nuria (44:40 min)
Bassave's dog named Sua=Euskara(basque language) word for fire
R243 R287 R326
Yes, the model Mat Gordon was his rumored boyfriend before Bassave (before 07-2008 ?), It's a rumor I've heard for a very long time, I saw a photo of them on internet (7-8 years ago) I've never saw again. At the time Jon was not so famous yet and people didn't know he was gay.
R257 R261 :)
- He looks straight to me! Sorrry, gays!
- He's gorgeous.
- Thanks Carla!
- R290 R298
In his own words, it's an ugly tree (originally with one branch), he tattooed in London, he was in Nothing Hill with a friend (Bassave ??)and they were a little (wine) tipsy/drunk. He has added another branch=(An important experience in his life)
Tiene algún significado el árbol que llevas tatuado en la nuca?
Jon-"Es una especie de diario, el mapa de mi vida, de mi viaje personal. Simboliza las experiencias que más me han marcado. Y lo iré completando con lo que vaya ocurriendo en el camino".
- Thank you for translating that Carla, I have been wondering about it. Looks like he and Evans are still together but who knows. I really like Jon and he seems so genuine, not at all sure about Evans who seems quite fake and only interested in being famous, or so it seems to me.
- R366 & R376
- R394 It's a new video, Jon's tattoo HD
R395 Cute animal
- R395 you couldn't even get a date with the cartoon Rat that Jon looks nothing like, you're an idiot and you need to GTFO.
- R397 you need to get a sense of humor. Ratatouille is cute and charming.
- I have a sense of humor R398 but if you are the poster who originally said he has a rat face and pig nose, you're a jealous idiot and not at all amusing. Personality, I suppose yes, the rat is charming and of course JK is as well. Physically, NO, no resemblance whatsoever.
- Thanks Carla. Is Bassave Basque or Andalusian?
- [quote]una especie de diario, el mapa de mi vida, de mi viaje personal. Simboliza las experiencias que más me han marcado. Y lo iré completando con lo que vaya ocurriendo en el camino".
I speak French and some Italian but Castilian is hard. Carla didn't translate this part so here's Bing version:
[quote]is a kind of diary, the map of my life, of my personal journey. It symbolizes the experiences that have marked me most. "And I will complete it with what will happening in the way".
- I know Jon has a sister. They are full siblings or half-siblings? They share the same mother or father?
- Now that I posted that, I realize how simple it was. The word 《 marcado 》was throwing me off.
- R400 Bassave is from Madrid, he was not at the last show of the Goya Awards, he was with some friends in La Granja(country house owned by his family)near Madrid.
- R401 R403
Thanks, I apologize for my poor English.
- R390, straight my ass.
He showed his true colors in this photo.
- Hey Carla, want to know your opinion.
You think he still misses jon? Or he already has a new boyfriend?
- R406 - in that photo, Jon's resemblance to Ratatouille is striking.
- Thanks Carla for posting here and spilling all those details.
Would you say that Bassave is well off since he has a country house in the outskirts of Madrid? He doesn't come across as a spoilt rich boy to me, quite the opposite.
To mirror what another poster said, do you know Bassave misses Jon. Has anyone from his close circle of friends heard anything?
- R402 same mother
- Hey Carla, I too would like to know if Alfonso has dated anyone famous since Jon. Also, can you point me to a site that lists rumoured gay/bi Spaniards? I'm curious about a few but don't want to derail this thread.
- Is Bassave from a wealthy family?
- Mr Macarena wishes you all a very Happy Valentine's Day!!! He's sent all of his fangurls in a tizzy!
- R413, I'm not Carla, but I am also from Spain. He doesn't seem like it. He's not poor either, don't get me wrong but he seems like a normal middle-class guy.
- R263 "he and Bassave would hold hands while walking down the street in Madrid"
Also, during their relationship they kissed on the street, aeroport.., many people recognized and saw them.
"he has a country house in the outskirts of Madrid"
House in a small village
His parents are lawyers, Alfonso estudied first year Law at university
How much money do they have? I don't know
His brother (same mother)
I think he has not a new boyfriend and he still is heartbroken
Happy Valentins Day pic on IG
He and that model from Puerto Rico only friends with benefits.
In my opinión he misses Jon, CLEARLY (no information about that in spanish gossip press)
I think they are full siblings.
- R416,what model from Puerto Rico?name please!
- It would be interesting to see if Dataloungers prefer Jon to Luke, or the opposite. A poll would be yummy.
- "No te metas con la masturbación, es hacer el amor con alguien a quien yo quiero"
Woody Allen. #AnnieHall
Pues eso, #FelizSanValentin 💔
Poor Basaave - I guess he had no one but his right hand for companion on Valentine's Day.
- Has Jon always been such a media darling? He seems to always stand out at events that have even more high profile people than him. He gets attention every event he attends. Good for him!
- He work it hard R420
Most actor no like to do this and Jon do, so photographer take his picture a lot. Also very handsome because is model, so photograph look good too
- The woman next to Jon in this pic from last nights Save the Children benefit, Esmeralda Brajovic, is, I believe, Luke Evans assistant...was he at the event as well or did she go in his stead...?
- Jon's new pal Gale Harold was also at the Save The Children event. He's still as hot as ever.
- R422,yep I think you are right,I was wondering
where I've seen her before.It was at the AMFAR
after party last year.
- She was also with Luke in Hong Kong in January. Maybe Luke sent her to keep an eye on Jon for him.
- R425 - Let's hope that's not the case. If Luke has to resort to sending his PA to keep an eye on Jon when he travels, that implies there may be an underlying mistrust. This relationship seems like its on a slippery slope.
Maybe they're sharing her services. No, that didn't sound very good. Let me rephrase...maybe she's personally assisting both men...nope, Ok, I give up.
- I think Esmeralda is Luke's agent. Not sure she has any interest in babysitting a grown man.
- R427 - the two men share clothes so maybe they're sharing an agent too. Jon wants a film career very badly so Luke's connections could help him.
- Anyone know if Luke or Jon will be at the Oscars or the parties this weekend?
- r428 or maybe they are sharing friends because they are couple.
- I was actually just joking. Pretty sure no one needs to babysit Jon, he seems quite taken with Luke.
- Jon seems very sentimental. I doubt he's sticking it in everything that catches his eye. Luke, OTOH...
- Jon brought Luke's agent along for the sake of having a female on his arm. Appearances are everything. He's gay but doesn't want anyone in homophobic Hollywood to know so he brings a female "date" to the event. Also, she may come in handy for getting him some acting jobs as they hobnob in LALA land. That's his cunning plan.
- [quote] He's gay but doesn't want anyone in homophobic Hollywood to know so he brings a female "date" to the event. Also, she may come in handy for getting him some acting jobs as they hobnob in LALA land. That's his cunning plan.
Hollywood knows he's gay. If he were straight, he'd have booked something significant after Single Man.
Bringing a female date is a way of saying he'll be a "good" gay actor, i.e. he won't make "a show" of his gayness by not trying to blend in as a straight guy.
- R432 - ok, so Jon is a loyal and dedicated partner and Luke is a slut. If Luke is so horrible then why is Jon hanging around him at all? Does Jon know something that you don't? Is he so in love with Luke that he doesn't care? I guess love is blind (deaf and dumb)!
- R417 Daniel Duboy
- Who said he brought her as a date? Pretty sure he arrived alone, as he usually does for such things. Jon doesn't play that bullshit game of pretend. He did arrive with a woman to Los Goyas, but she is an old friend and everyone knew they were accompanying each other as such.

with Fernando Llorente (Footballer/Former Athletic de Bilbao FC striker)
In my opinión he is straight.
- They both travel a lot for work. They may have a "love (fuck) the one you're with" policy.
- What was the deal with kissing Rossy De Palma? Did she just request or lean into him at the podium?
- R440 First she kissed the other guy, then said "Jon...." And went for it. You can see it at the beginning of this video.
- Thanks Carla for the info & links. Please continue to share what you have heard about Jon. Any idea when he and Bassave broke up? Looked like it was January 2014 just going by his IG posts but is that correct? And any gossip as to what broke them up? Who dumped who?
- Does this mean Luke and Jon are still together, darn!
- Why darn R443?Did you think you had a chance
with either one?
That model friend of Bassave's
is hot,he is a good replacement for Jon.Why are
they only just friends, I wonder?According to Carla
- Jon liked photo of Alfonso on IG :)
- Hi dear Carla, really appreciate all your very helpful input.
Just a little suggestion: you know you can make the link clickable just by putting the URL inside the box that says 'URL:' (it's just above the box that says: 'Author').
Thank you so much again dear!
- Jon blocked a girl who ships Jon and Luke
then he liked a picture of Bassave
I guess Jon and Luke broke up again
The last time they broke up (at least we taught like that) he did the same thing.he liked two of Bassave's pictures.then he started to follow the girl who he blocked today.plus,a long time ago at instagram he blocked an account who ships them.i don't remember when he did it but i don't know why he hates that people ships him with Luke.I mean they were together.
If Jon/Luke broke up again I hope they won't be together again.
sorry but if he still misses and loves his ex-boyfriend why he was with Luke?I liked Jon at first but now I started to hate him.
-btw English is not my first language so forgive me if i made some mistakes-
- He was probably stalking Alfonso's instagram and accidentally liked the pic. It's very easily done.
Or maybe they didn't have a terrible break up and have remained friends.
- [quote] i don't know why he hates that people ships him with Luke.
Because he doesn't want his relationship to fuck with his money. It's hardly complicated.
- @448 lol.I don't think he accidentally did it.plus this is the second time he did it.
Yeah,I hope they remained as friends and Alfonso seems like a cute guy.
@449 but when he blocks someone who ships them it causes more problem and gets more attention.I mean at Tumblr they're shipping everybody with everybody and none of these people care about it.he should act like he doesn't care about it so nobody would care.
Maybe they broke up because Luke wants a private relationship or maybe Jon just used him to make Alfonso jealous and they got back together.I don't know.Actually I'm feeling so strange right now because i made this theories,lol.They were together just 3 days ago and Jon went to party with Luke's agent yesterday.It would be so crazy if they broke up.
- Maybe he feels guilty.
I just know that Jon is madly in love with Luke.
Thanks ;), I've tried "the URL inside the box that says 'URL" in the past but I could not post it.
- Why do you think he might feel guilt Carla?Was
he responsible for them breaking up?Did Jon cheat?
- Jon takes everything a bit too seriously and is way too emotional. I think he accidentally liked Bassave's pic and once he discovered that he liked it and that obviously people can see, he started liking all these pics so it would get off his "Photos you have liked" list. Then he takes it so seriously that he makes a post about "his past returning". He needs to chill the hell out.
- Jon's work is so mindless that it's not surprising he's so in his feelings all the time. I don't think he's a cold hearted cracka like Luke.
- I believe Luke's agent is either dating or close friends with Jon's agent. They are always together even when Luke and Jon are not around and they have known each other longer.
Jon isn't following his ex right? So he searchs his name to get to his page and like pics? Personally I don't think he's over him.
Maybe Jon blocks ppl who mentions their relationship because when they get in arguments he doesn't want to be reminded? Or he's just overly dramatic and petty. The girl he blocked wasn't being mean or rude at all.
- r455 Luke's and Jon's agents are both gay.
Instagram populates your personal dashboard with pics that your the people you follow have liked. So it's possible, he wasn't stalking Bassave but the pic showed up in his dashboard and he looked and liked accidentally. It's very easy to like random shit without much thought. Trust me, I know. I'm the worst.
- Tom Ford just announced that is he directing another movie that is going to film later this year and is supposedly casting now I suspect that may be what Jon means by the past returning, since he is in LA this week.
- If Jon's agent is Juan Carlos Tubilla,he is most
probably gay and in a relationship with a model
he is frequently pictured with.Check out his
- r457 Your explanation of his IG post is much better than my interpretation (r453).
- I have a feeling that these two guys are way too fickle and impulsive for a long-term relationship. I'd be very surprised if it lasts. I'm getting dizzy just reading these posts. Unfollowing, blocking, liking old BF's photos...it's getting silly.
It looks like Luke is influencing Jon in a bad way by trying to hide their relationship. Let's hope that Jon doesn't suddenly start "bearding". Jon was pretty discreet with Bassave in the past but I think this relationship with the paranoid Luke has gone to a heightened level of privacy.
- Was Jon fully out when he was with Bassave? I think both Luke and Jon understand the economics of keeping things somewhat undercover. It's not the principled thing to do but getting that money while you has its allure.
- When he was with Bassave they were often spotted holding hands and had no qualms about kissing each other in public places so I'd say yes, he was quite out. I realize that Luke has a very different career goal than Bassave did, as it seems that he wants to be a Hollywood action hero, so clearly it's Luke who is freaking out about them being known as a couple. I hope that Jon soon gets tired of such BS, it must be so draining. He deserves a man who is proud to be on his arm.
- I.E. Bassave
- R462 were they posting pics of each other kissing and holding hands or were these pics paparazzi pics? People seems to over romanticize their relationship but clearly it wasn't that good since they broke up.
- I agree R464 obviously it didn't work out. No, they didn't post pics - just people would see them out and about in Madrid and talked about it. They also often posed with fans together, weren't afraid to be seen as a couple. As for posters who think they should get back together, that's probably not realistic after a year. I just don't think Luke Evans is the best fit, and seems so paranoid now about being seen with him...this after having casually been photographed together numerous times throughout 2014. Very odd actually.
- R465 it is very odd. There was clearly a deliberate decision made to tone it down following the holidays likely driven by Luke's side. we have to keep in mind that they haven't been together for even a year so there is hopefully time for them to figure out what's important to them or call it quits.
- While the shenanigans seem to be driven by Evans, I doubt Koratjarena is an unwilling participant. He also has his eye on acting fame, especially as his modelling career is likely to slow down in his 30s.
- Muchas gracias for the information @r448, Carla (even though I was kinda hoping a few footballers would've made the list 😜). Such a treat having you post on this thread, you're the best.
I know this is somewhat vague and not easy to answer, but what was the general reaction in Spain when Jon and Alfonso were first papped at that beach and it emerged that they were, indeed, dating? Did it cause a media storm or was it more of a calm/indifferent reaction? Did people know about them being possibly gay/bi before? And has Bassave ever publicly dated a woman? Thanks.
- Does Alfonso speak English? Anyway Jon and he made a such hot couple.
- Jon is acting this way because...
a) he's so in love with Luke he can't think straight (no pun intended).
b) he's so desperate for a successful acting career that he'll put up with any "rules" that Luke imposes if it helps in that regard.
c) he's a famewhore who believes that any publicity is good because it keeps his name in the news.
d) all of the above.
I Choose "D"
- Jon posted this
- Tom Ford in turning Japanese. I think he's turning Japanese.
- Jon thinks Tom Ford is a "genious" (sic). He must have some low standards to bandy that word about for this man.
Tom Ford is creative, yes, but he ain't no Einstein or Da Vinci, is he?
I wonder why he's kissing Ford's ass? Hmmm...is he sucking up to him for work?
- You guys think these two hooked up after the show? I am just drooling at the thought.
- Leto looks like a Hasid in that picture
- R475 I think they must have at some point. Look at Jon's face... It says it's going to happen ;)
- Probably Jon has eyed up his next conquest.
- R478 - yeah, Leto has won an Oscar so he's better for Macarena's acting ambitions rather than a guy who was voted the "Sexiest Man in Wales".
I Have Bigger Fish To Fry
- Alfonso Bassave could do some pretty grim things to me, you know what I'm saying?
- I don't find the hawk nosed, swarthy Bassave attractive in the slightest. Even if I was desperate, I would defintely pass on the oppotunity. He has a very "mean" look about him.
No Thank You
- Ugh, I hope nothing happened. Leto looks nasty now and is grotesquely proportioned; he'd stretch out poor Jon's sweet Spanish slit.
Of course, if Alexis Arquette is to be believed, Leto bottoms with guys so that could solve two problems--the pain and Leto's face.
- Macarena can't seem to piss without posting a photo on Twitter or Facebook. I can't stand this guy. He's way too self-involved for me to even find attractive. I like a little mystery.
Run Luke Run
- Jon's lost a lot of weight
- R484 just described 97% of famous, semi-famous, and unknown people. If that's the worst you can say about Jon, that he's self-involved, then he looks like a catch to me.
- R486 - that's a pretty sad commentary on the human race. I guess I'll stay in my little 3% corner and leave the narcissists to you, shall I? I could have said more but I didn't want to waste any more time on Macarena.
- r482 couldn't have said it any better.
- Oh R487 I suspect you'll find time, in between all your charitable works, to come and make nasty comments about Jon.
- Heres R487 licking Jon's feet...
- R490 - Why would I lick the feet of a guy I don't like? Is that what you do when you're desperate? Just because I think people should practice a little more "selfie-control" is no reason to get on your high horse. I'm happy to report I look nothing like the guy on the floor so your cyber bullying is wasted on me. Nice try to no award for you. Now, be sure to spread bad karma around. But remember, what goes around comes around.
- R491 why would you post on the thread of a guy you don't like? Guess the same reason you'd lick his feet haaa, hit a nerve did I gramps?
Anyway, seriously, you have made it clear that you like nothing about Jon so wtf are you still here? Perhaps you got lost on your way to the Evans thread? Let me help you find your way back with the link below...
- R485 -
Lost a lot of weight = heroin chic
- [quote]so your cyber bullying is wasted on me. Nice try to no award for you. Now, be sure to spread bad karma around. But remember, what goes around comes around.
Hilarious. This from the psycho freak who trolls DL 24/7 to denounce "Macarena" every chance he gets.
- Luke is in LA for filming a new movie. He is living with Jon. A friend of mine catch a glimse on them yesterday night.
- R495,any more details?Why didn't your friend take
a pic.That would have really pissed Luke!!
- Jon posted a pic having dinner with friends in
London.Is he trying to throw us off?Are they really
- Jon was at Mr Chows in London last night not in LA.
- Madonna was having a pre-dinner before her party last night at Mr Chow. A bunch of celebs were there. Jon most likely went to the party too.
- lol @ R495
- They've broken up, there is no point trying to throw people off the scent. Two reasons:
A/ No one really cares about a b-list actor and a male model.
B/ If they didn't want people on their scent in the first place why be so obvious they are dating.
- R501 - I don't think they broke up (yet). Since LE had a meltown over someone taking their photo on the Valentine's Day weekend in Bath, they have been keeping a low profile.
Luke is paranoid so now he doesn't even want to be seen with Jon. Why Jon puts up with this arrangement is beyond my comprehension.
- Agree with R502. They haven't broken up, Jon is still wearing the 'wing' necklace, wore it at the chow party just last nite. Luke is just paranoid about being seen with Jon and like you, I am amazed that Jon puts up with such bullshit. Why be in a relationship if you can't enjoy time together except behind closed doors? Shame.
- How do you know all these R503?Do tell!!
- R504, this is from last night, will post another one next from the night before where you can see the whole necklace.
- Necklace...Jon sure looks happy!
- What does the necklace mean...?
- R507 -
Your the wind beneath my wings
You make me soar like a bird
We're always on airplanes
How the hell do we know what it means? It may not even be from Luke. Unless someone knows the couple or heard them speak of it, your guess is as good as mine.
- The consensus is that Luke has the other wing - he has been spotted wearing it soon after he spent the Holidays in Spain with Jon.
- From sharing clothes to matching necklaces, this is getting too creepy for me.
- Creepy R510? Aren't you the romantic. Fact is, Jon has said he is a 'hopeless romantic' and I've no doubt that he gifted the other half of the necklace to Luke, who probably has your kind of attitude about the whole thing. However, I'm sure he enjoys having Jon in his life so he will appease him when he can, it's the little things after all. Luke's NEw Years selfie shows that he is wearing what looks to be the other necklace....it's all deduction of course, but based on pretty clear clues.
- I've seen similar necklaces described as wings of Eros, which is what makes it a couple thing. I think it's like those old school BFF ones where you each have half. And Jon posted an Instagram pic of just his necklace (with the caption "Can't fly") right around the time they appeared to have broken up in January.
- Eros is the Greek name for the Roman Cupid, god of love. Ah, two pagans in love. Luke's Jehovah Witness parents would be thrilled.
- Exactly R512. Jon posted quite a few forlorn looking pics up until the weekend that they clearly made up, Jon's post below along with the fact that he's wearing Luke's coat in the pic points to a reconciliation. They are still together, even if not in the same city at present.
- I wonder if they put on their very own porn show on Skype to pass the time when they're away from each other? Luke loves his gay porn since adolescence.
- R514 They appear to get along better when they're apart.
- R503 - the investigative sleuths on DL never cease to amaze with their stealthy, sharp eyes for detail.
- where was Luke?
- R518 Supposedly in LA to start filming some awful sounding movie.
- Jon is wearing Luke's leather coat at the Mert-Madonna party. JustJared has pics of Jon and there was a pic of Luke posted by @Fabric_PR in the same coat.
Jon is not an idiot nor as naive as some of you portray him. If he wasn't getting what he wanted from Luke he wouldn't be with him and criss crossing around the globe to spend all his free time with his man.. Maybe he also likes the privacy as he attempts to launch his own acting career. Oh well. Let's see how this happy phase lasts.
- [R520] why assume it is luke's coat?The green coat, in my opinion, was jon's (who wore it a lot) and not luke's, who was only seen wearing it once. Not to say that jon is innocent.
- R521 agree it could be Jon's. My point is that they like sharing clothes.
- R520 Seriously get a life.
- R521,the green coat is Luke's,it was discussed here
before and someone posted that it was given to him
for promotion ? or something and he posted evidence
as well.It was an article in a Welsh newspaper I think,
- Luke arrived at Lax yesterday wearing the black leather jacket.he has a necklace but no wing visible.
- He can make his hole clamp down on your cock while you are fucking his cunt. Good times.
- Why would such a stunningly handsome man like Jon date jerks that treat him like shit?
- R527 I really like Jon. He wears his heart in his sleeves and is very (too much) open about his feelings with his fans and LE seems to be colder and a control freak. But Jon is old enough to know what he is doing and with whom.
- What are you talking about? He doesn't treat him like shit. They both CHOOSE to keep their relationship private. Ie not discuss it with the press. It really is nobody else's business really and that's up to them. Stop trying to make out that Jon is some weak victim character. He really isn't. They are both successful and they seem to be very happy. Good for them.
- [quote]Jon is wearing Luke's leather coat at the Mert-Madonna party. JustJared has pics of Jon and there was a pic of Luke posted by @Fabric_PR in the same coat.
Post links, please, because all I see is a long typical black trench coat.
- [quote]The consensus is that Luke has the other wing - he has been spotted wearing it soon after he spent the Holidays in Spain with Jon.
Consensus my a@@!
I haven't seen Luke wear wings. Either post or shut up with the lies.
- [quote]They both CHOOSE to keep their relationship private. Ie not discuss it with the press. It really is nobody else's business really and that's up to them. Stop trying to make out that Jon is some weak victim character. He really isn't.
- No Luke chooses to keep their relationship hidden, Jon would probably be more open about it is he weren't with a closet case.
- R533 You are completely and utterly wrong. Jon is on record telling someone from the press that his private life is none of their business. He does not discuss his personal life.
Are you the Bitterness Troll just making up shit again? Its pathetic.
- [quote]Luke arrived at Lax yesterday wearing the black leather jacket.he has a necklace but no wing visible.
Luke is wearing a chain in the LAX pic.
Regarding the leather jacket, how can they both wear the same jacket on two different locations?
On the same day:
Luke is in LA wearing a leather jacket.
Jon is in London wearing a leather jacket.
As I type, I am wearing one of my two black leather jackets.
- R535 Agreed on the leather jacket hence why I said that he had arrived in lax wearing it. The same for the necklace... I'll believe it is the same when I see it. there is a limit for speculation...my leather jacket is brown so at least I'm sure it is not the same... jon seems to have returned to spain/madrid according to his twitter/insta account.
- [quote]The same for the necklace... I'll believe it is the same when I see it.
Luke is wearing a chain in one pic and a leather/strip necklace in another, how are they the same?
- R537 in the lax pictures from yesterday it is not a chain, at least to me it seems like a leather necklace, but like I said no wing visible...
- R535. Luke arrived in LA on Friday afternoon wearing the leather jacket and Jon wore the same jacket in London at the Mert-MadonnaParty on Thursday night. Different days same jacket. Or maybe they buy stuff in twos.
- Chain necklaces, leather jackets, green coats... I am feeling dizzy with all of this shit. I don't mind attention to detail but you're all getting yourselves in a tizzy over something that's already established.
THEY SHARE CLOTHES. WE ALL GET IT NOW.
LET'S MOVE ON, SHALL WE?
- Does anyone know when jon's movies will premiere? I read somewhere that versus would be in march, but no idea about andron_the black labyrinth or ma ma.
- They're probably being shopped around for a distributor...can't find any info on them other than Versus which looks pretty cool. Maybe it will turn into a larger movie deal, it looks promising.
- I'd be very surprised if any of Jon's films become successful. I don't think he is much of an actor.
- What do you base that conclusion on R543? His, what, 10 minutes in A Single Man? (Which btw, I thought was awesome and not just because of his astounding beauty). He actually is a good actor from what I've seen of him, guess we won't really know until he has an opportunity to show us.
- He's had many years to show us that he's a good actor. What happened?
- You girls are easily impressed.
- He has a full career as a sought after model. He's only 29 for fucks sake.
- R510 - I wouldn't share clothes with a guy who has body odour and smokes like a chimney either. All of this clothes sharing just seems like something immature adolescent girls do.
- R547 - we're talking about acting not modeling.
Jon has wanted an acting career for years but thus far it's all amounted to nada.
- R548,how do you know he has body odour,I don't think
you have been any where near either of them.
And if they both smoke I don't think it would bother
them if clothes smell of smoke.Besides I'm sure they
wash every now and then.
- [quote]All of this clothes sharing just seems like something immature adolescent girls do.
Yeah, we get it Simon.
- R545 he's been modeling while he is still wanted in the industry and young. It was a smart career move in my opinion. Now that he is getting oLder he's started investing more in movies. They may not be blockbusters but at least he is gaining experience.
- I've been waiting since "A Single Man" for Jon to show us what he can do.
I have an uncanny feeling that I'll always be waiting.
The Clock Is Ticking
- Jon, I hired you because I liked you but you're not Lee Pace and Colin Firth.
- So... jon is in la? Considering the photo posted on insta not alone probably.
- Jon' back in Europe. Luke's now in LA, filming.
- R556 on the new picture posted by jon on teitter and instagram he wrote happy days la. Is he confusing people and he is not there? What's the point of that?
- The pic he posted #Happy LA doesn't look like LA at all.
For one thing, the white brick buildings are big tell tale sign that he's not in LA.
Due to earthquake regulations, you rarely see brick buildings in CA. The only place you'll see them are in old dilapidated places such as downtown LA, and I don't know why he would be there.
Now, in my neighborhood, there is a brick frame firehouse, but it's newer, basically one story, and it's only framed with bricks -- not all brick.
So, you will find a rare one story brick building, here or there but not that many. In Jon's pic, you can tell he's in a building that is at least a couple of stories. There's no way he would be in a run down skid row building in downtown LA, which is the only place that could be.
Jon is still on the closet. He EVER refuses to talk about his private life in the medias. “Shangay”, the most distributed gay magazine in Spain, asked him several times to grace its cover, but he ever refuses. As Bassave does. And not ony LGTB personalities had appeared in its cover. Also gay friendly celebrities. When the gossip mags published the pictures of Jon and Alfonso spending their hollidays at the Ibiza coast. Both of them get angry and they threatened to to sue the mags arguing “intromisión ilegítima en la intimidad”. But since the pics where taken in a public beach they can´t do anything. Jon has a beard for years, his friend model Almudena. And also where rumors in the press about him having affairs with other women (Esther Cañadas and Blanca Romero) and his PR never denied anything. Still his fangurls think he is straight and Luke is ony his friend. Jon said a few years ago that he wants to be in the news for his work and not for be the boy in the gossip mags.
Luke and Jon are equally paranoid about their relationship. In this relationship there aren´t a good one and a bad one. They are very similar in more things than we can imagine. As we say in Spain “son tal para cual”.
But according brithish tabloid “The Sun” : “A source told the paper: 'It's a long-term, serious relationship and Luke is besotted. He loves introducing Jon as his boyfriend. “
- R559 - yes, they are similar. They are both into mind games and deception. One is the leader and the other is a follower. One is bossy and the other is needy. A relationship based on co-dependency is rarely healthy.
- I'm getting bored of the whole thing. Both have peaked in their careers, really who cares if they are dating. Jon is gorgeous, no denying, but Luke and he seem to be teasing and attention seeking. Either way if feels as if the are slyly pimping out their glass closet case relationship for attention with out being brave enough to actually be out and open.
punch and delete.
- R561 I somewhat agree. But, damn you're cold.
- R561 I partly agree... being a couple one would expect jon to go to elle style awards to suport luke...let's see if luke will go to the premiere of versus that people were talking about being in march. It's their life but really I feel that this hide and seek game they're playing is doing more harm than good to both their images. Or not... fangirls tend to ignore whatever goes against the image of their (supposedly straight) idols...
- R563 not just fangirls. The General public does not care one bit about these games and deception. They cannot even begin to care at this point unless Luke and Jon decide to be very public about their relationship. The glass closet is a sensible compromise. its better than their past boarding nonsense.
- [quote]The pic he posted #Happy LA doesn't look like LA at all. For one thing, the white brick buildings are big tell tale sign that he's not in LA.
I agree, the houses look English, like they belong in London or something. But maybe he took the photo before he went to LA and posted it while he was in LA and captioned it with LA? Or maybe he went to LA just after he took that photo, hence he captioned it with LA? Or he's not in LA and is trying to throw us off. Who really knows at this point?
- I think they are being rather manipulative about their relationship via instagram and titter. If they don't want anyone to know and they don't want to be public why post clandestine code pictures like the Luke posting a Christmas tree from Jon's jumper. They know what they are doing it's teasing and throwing out fishing lines know it's will create interest, hence Jon's rapid rise in intagram followers.
- The gif made me laugh and sums up this discussion... together but not together. Hiding in plain sight. But i agree with R566, sometimes it seems they are trying to create a buzz around them just to be talked about. I would like it to be an attempt to come out as a couple to the general public but i doubt it. ..
"He EVER refuses to talk about his private life in the medias"
"Jon and Alfonso spending their holidays at the Ibiza coast"
"Jon has a beard for years, his friend model Almudena. And also where rumors in the press about him having affairs with other women (Esther Cañadas and Blanca Romero) and his PR never denied anything"
That's not true.
Almudena Fernandez never was his beard, she and his longtime boyfriend the model Cameron (currently they are not dating) are just his friends.
Esher Cañadas, Blanca Romero..etc : At that time, no one knew he was gay and the press adjudged romances with models, he always said they were just his friends.

- At least he doesn't deny anything, and at least he doesn't beard. I agree with Carla here. Honestly.. to me it's more like he's in the glass closet. I'm fine with that. Of course I wish he was fully out, but at least he doesn't support anti-gay causes, at least he doesn't have a beard, at least he doesn't lie. It is what it is. Maybe some day they'll both have the courage to come out, not only as a couple, but as gay too. I don't see it happening in the near future though. Jon wants an acting career, being openly gay will get him nowhere. Luke has come out and gone back in more times than I can count, he's made it abundantly clear that he does not want to talk about his private life.
- Apparently Jon blocked some girl on twitter just because she asked if the la pic was taken by luke... what's the point of this...?
- B570 - Both men have hissy fits on occasion. They want to be masters of their destiny but they're just two silly schoolboys in love.
- I'm going to sound like a total stalker here (I'm not!) but the teenage girl is a shipper and since I've followed JK for a while I saw the shit that went down there...I am pretty sure he accidently followed her about a month ago which can easily happen when on Twitter on an iPad - anyway she went ballistic over it and made a big deal of it; after a short while it looked to me like many of her followers just assumed she knew him (since he was following her) and when he re-followed Luke on IG she screenshot the follow and tweeted that they were back together and all was fine. Her followers took this as insider info of course. He subsequently unfollowed her and she again went ballistic only in a negative way of course. Then, a short while later she tweeted something about Luke being the dominant one and Jon the weaker one in the relationship (basically said Jon's the girl which of course these fan girls seem to want to believe that one guy has to be the girl in gay relationships) and that's when Jon blocked her. I don't blame him a bit.
- R572 oh... in that context any person wouLd do the same. I fully admit my guilty pleasure of occasionally stalking some celebrities Online and silently rooting for them. Curiosity always gets the better of me. But i have never posted a comment to them (i don't have twitter even) nor would i ever dare to tell them how to live their lives.some people say things that give me serious second hand embarrassment...
- R573 I'm with you! At the most I may favorite or retweet a tweet of a celeb but never comment and it's amazing to me when I see some of the comments those fan girl/shippers post.

He doesn't say "I am gay man" but.....
The conversation took place in a joking manner / had a jocular tone.
I: Y eso que tu debut en el cine no fue facil, por que el papel que te toco hacer era el de un chapero.
Jon: "A mi hacer de chapero se me dio muy bien jajajaj"
I: En quien te inspiraste?
Jon: Pues con intuición, supongo que tengo más de chapero de lo que pienso, no se jajajaj"
I: Nunca se sabe
Jon: Nunca se sabe, eso todavía no lo he desarrollado, pero...jajajaj
I: Your debut was not easy because your role were a hustler
Jon: I was good at being a(hustler/male prostitute/rent boy/escort) hahahah
I: And who inspired you?
Jon: With intuition, I guess I'm more like a hustler/rent boy what I think
I: You never know..
Jon: You never know, I still I have not developed that(profession), but...hahahah
- Querida Carla,
Yes, Menorca, a lapsus, very near anyhow.
And you have to recognize there were a time when Jon and Almudena were going togeher everywhere and everytime. And there were lot of gossip (mags, TV) assuming there were "una parejita". And when the reporters asked Jon he simply giggles and say " I don´t talk about my private life". He never said "no, she isn´t my girlfriend because I prefer men".
And still all his fans believe he is straight because he never ever say he is gay.
I don´t agree with the common consense among the datalungers. Jon isn´t dumb or naive. He isn´t an inocent teenager. He isn´t weak or needed. He is almost 30 year old, a mature man. And Luke is only 6 years older. This is not a Matt-Simon type of relationship. Jon & Luke have lot of things in common (no, I won´t do another boring essay). It´s not oposite atract.
- I like your essays. It's so nice to have someone new on here who's sensible and normal. Helps to balance out the crazy. :)
Querido Make Love No War:
So Madonna was also his beard, because a female reporter(who knew perfectly well that Jon was gay, all reporters knew/know)asked if they were dating and Jon replied "I don't talk about my private life"
"a time when Jon and Almudena were going togeher everywhere and everytime"
Because they are good friends.(Ellos nunca se han hecho pasar por novios)
"And there were lot of gossip (mags, TV) assuming there were "una parejita""
They didn't write that, they were not "journalists", they were not to blame (si a los supuestos periodistas que escriben en algunas revistas..etc les regalaron el título en una tombola)
"And when the reporters asked Jon he simply giggles and say " I don´t talk about my private life". He never said "no, she isn´t my girlfriend because I prefer men""
Because It's obvious he refuses to talk about his homosexuality
"And still all his fans believe he is straight because he never ever say he is gay"
Are you sure?
Fans? have they internet, electricity? Do they live in a cave?
I remember when Jon kissed Paula Prendes in the V Magazine party photocall (video 2:56)
- I've actually started to lose interest and "go off" him somewhat , the relationship with Luke is just two closeted attention whores trying to milk their closeted relationship.
I'm like, ok whatever.
- So... where is our dear jon now? He's been awfully silent lately.
- He's getting boned out. Leave him be.
- R580 we've been discussing that over on the LE thread. Seems he gets pretty quiet on social media when he's off hanging out with Luke.
- So the general opinion is that he is in la? I'm not so sure... If he was someone would have seen him by now. And he liked a photo of friends on instagram that were reuniting in la and wrote that he wasn't there. If he was in la wouldn't he meet his friends? Anyway... I was just curious because of his quieteness on twitter.
- I might sound paranoid here but what the hell.. do we know Jon and Luke are back together after the supposed fight they had? Have they followed each other on twitter/instagram again? Have they been seen together? Or is it all hersay, like Jon looks happy, he's going to LA where Luke is etc? I mean, to me it does seem like they're back together, but I'd still like it to be confirmed. It would be nice to see a pic of them together. Hopefully some fangirls will give us an update if indeed Luke and Jon are both in LA and if they are back together.
- Jon just posted on Instagram, something about the production of a movie? I have no idea, sorry. My Spanish is not very good.
- He posted that they start filming in Gran Canaria next week, Monday to be exact.
- He looks too pretentious to be hot.
- Carla, No creo que Jon es gay.
- I find it amusing that the author of the book that is being adapted to film is commenting on jk instagram asking for a naked kortajarena, and a kortajarena baby with her... sounds like she is a fun person =p i think She just gained a fan
- What is this movie about and what is Jon's role?
- Jot sure what is jk role, but he is one of the main characters. The story is about a missing girl that joined a cult from what I understand from the article
- R586 - it's good to hear that he'll soon be working instead of tagging along with Luke like a panting puppy.
Time For A Breather
- R592 Give it a rest trollipops ... Two grown men trying to have a sensible adult relationship while simultaneously dealing with successful careers. Sorry your life is so shit that you have to try to denigrate them to feel better about your own miserable existence, but it's getting kind of pathetic now.
- R593 - I call it like I see it.
- R592, stfu. We don't even know if he was in LA with Luke this past week. Seriously.. the buildings look nothing like LA, and nobody has spotted him in LA. He could just be throwing us off. I'm just saying. I'm also sure they'd be on the same flight. They're not THAT paranoid. Also.. we're not even sure they are together. I know they had that fight and possibly break up. All we have seen after confirms nothing. Yes, Jon looks happy. Yes, he wears a necklace. Yes, he did write #LA as a possible quip to Luke being in LA, and him possibly being with him. But that's all hearsay. I won't believe they're back together until we get a new pic or some sort of confirmation. They still haven't followed each other back on twitter and instagram either.
- R595 - they were together as of Valentine's Day weekend. Why do you think they're not a couple anymore? Maybe they're just lying low.
And don't be rude and try to stifle someone's opinion. Did someone die and make you boss?
- R592 I personally like this thing you refer to as panting puppy that Jon is doing. They are both besotted. Luke: "I will die if you don't come to LA with me. I can't go 2 days without seeing you!!!!" Jon: "Of course I will come to LA. Fuck everything! I don't care if I haven't had a good night's sleep or rest in 22 years due to jet lag! Which time zone is this again?"
- New thread for when this one is full...
- R597 - the impression I get is that Jon wears his heart on his sleeve. Luke is more careful in showing his emotions. There are times when he can get emotional (as some fans who want to take his photo can attest) but for the most part he seems more guarded and plays it cool when he's in public. It could have something to do with his Welsh nationality and Jehovah Witness childhood. Jon is Spanish/Basque and as a rule the people from these cultures are not afraid to express their emotions.
- Wow, it took almost five years to get through this thread.
