Liev Schreiber is no longer a bear

I actually preferred him in his bear state.

by Anonymousreply 8607/02/2013

Love him. He looked best in Clear and Present Danger.

by Anonymousreply 103/04/2013

I don't recall his being in Clear and Present Danger.

Sorry, Sum of all Fears. I get those movie titles mixed up.

What is it with guys who want to have their chests waxed?

Liev in more bearish days.

by Anonymousreply 503/04/2013

He must be preparing for a role. He is naturally chubby.

by Anonymousreply 603/04/2013

In some of his films where he had to be shirtless, he was a lot more hairier than that R5

by Anonymousreply 703/04/2013

Prodigious bulge in his wet suit.

by Anonymousreply 803/04/2013

R5, bears do not have visible abdominal muscles.

by Anonymousreply 903/04/2013

Looks like his head is photoshopped onto someone else's body in the first picture...

The chubby version is much familiar and better.

R8, pretty sure he's Jewish, he was on "Inside the Actors Studio" and I seem to remember him saying his mother is Jewish but he wasn't raised with any religion, but I  couldn't remember all of it. So i looked up his wiki page. Quite the unusual childhood.

Schreiber was born Isaac Liev Schreiber in San Francisco, California, the son of Heather (née Milgram) and Tell Schreiber, a stage actor and director. Schreiber's father, who is of Austrian, Swiss, Irish, and Scottish descent, was from a wealthy, Protestant, society family from Bucks County, Pennsylvania; he graduated from Hampshire College and was a wrestling and football star.[1][2][3] Schreiber's mother, who now lives on an ashram in Virginia, was born into a Brooklyn working-class household of Jewish Communists, descended from immigrants from Poland, Ukraine, and Germany. With a firm knowledge of classical music and Russian literature, she has been described by Schreiber as a "far-out Socialist Labor Party hippie bohemian freak who hung out with William Burroughs."[1][2][4] When Heather was twelve, her own mother, Liev's grandmother, was lobotomized.[1] His mother has said that she named him after her favorite Russian author, Leo Tolstoy, while his father has stated that Schreiber was named after the doctor who saved his mother's life. His family nickname, adopted when Schreiber was a baby, is "Huggy."[1]

When Schreiber was one year old, his family moved to Canada.[2] According to Tell, at the beginning of their marriage, in San Francisco, Heather had a bad experience on LSD. Over the next four years, she was repeatedly admitted to hospitals and underwent therapy.[1] After Tell threatened to admit her to a mental institution, she left. As Tell pursued his wife, Liev and his mother were trailed by private detectives in various states; when he was three, his father kidnapped him from an upstate New York commune to which Heather had decamped.

By the time Liev was four, he was living with her on the fourth floor of a dilapidated walkup at First Avenue and First Street in New York City (his half brothers from her first marriage were with their father in a duplex on Central Park West), and he was the object of a fierce custody battle, which bankrupted his maternal grandfather, Alex Milgram. (Milgram was the significant male in Schreiber’s youth. He played the cello and owned Renoir etchings, and made his living by delivering meat to restaurants.)[1] When Schreiber was five, his parents divorced; his mother won custody, and the two moved to a cold-water flat on the Lower East Side in Manhattan, New York City, where he was raised.[2][5] They frequently had no electricity, hot water, or even beds.[5]

His mother was "a highly cultured eccentric" who supported them by splitting her time between driving a cab and creating papier-mâché puppets."[1] On Schreiber's 16th birthday, his mother bought him a motorcycle, "to promote fearlessness."[1]

The critic John Lahr wrote in a 1999 New Yorker profile that, "To a large extent, Schreiber's professional shape-shifting and his uncanny instinct for isolating the frightened, frail, goofy parts of his characters are a result of being forced to adapt to his mother's eccentricities. It's both his grief and his gift."[1] He endured her mood swings and bohemian proclivities (she made him take Hindu names, wear yoga shirts, and he was forced, briefly, to go to an Ashram school in Connecticut when he was 12).

Schreiber's mother also forbade Schreiber from seeing color movies. As a result, his favorite actor was Charlie Chaplin. In the late 70s and early 80s Schreiber, known then as Shiva Das, lived at the Satchidananda Ashram, Yogaville East, in Pomfret, Connecticut. He also abided by his mother's vegetarian diet. In retrospect, Schreiber said in a 2008 interview, he appreciates his mother's influences, saying, "Since I've had Sasha, I've completely identified with everything my mother went through raising me...And I think her choices were inspired."[7]

I love it that his nickname is Huggy

by Anonymousreply 1103/04/2013

He's shaped up but he still looks like a chipmunk.

by Anonymousreply 1203/04/2013

I see him weekly OP and he owns a unit in my building; While I find him extremely sexy, yes, he's indeed a bear. A hot, fit-fat bear daddy.

(but sadly, a dick. A massive DICK.)

by Anonymousreply 1303/04/2013

He's an amazing actor -- more than any of this era, he brings it.

His name is Liev Shreiber and you're only "pretty sure" he's Jewish? What else would he be? Chinese?

by Anonymousreply 1503/04/2013

Liev had a VERY bad nose job. Nose is much too small and "cute" for his face.

he hs the same trainer as Ry Seacrest

Long rumored to be QUITE well hung.

I'd take him any way I could get him. DAMN he's hot

I like his brother Pablo better.

by Anonymousreply 2103/04/2013

I caught a glimpse of him on the red carpet at the Oscars, walking behind someone else getting interviewed ("Who are you wearing?!") and he had a hateful look on his face. I bet he's a humorless bastard.

Dear Leiv Shreiber, You don't need to tolerate this negativity. Call my lawyer, Allison Hart. The law firm is Lavely and Singer. She will send threatening letters to the webmaster and this harrassement will be deleted immediately.No one needs to be so abused like this.

Take care, Tig Notaro

by Anonymousreply 2303/04/2013

But does he still lounge around the pool nude?

by Anonymousreply 2403/04/2013

Having seen him in NYC a number of times, I can confirm that he is insanely hot in person: far hotter than on screen. He's quite tall and surprisingly muscular. And that voice...

I prefer him with a bit more beef on him.

by Anonymousreply 2503/04/2013

And don't forget, his name is pronounced Lee-ev, as in chicken Kiev, and not Leeve, as in leave me alone.

Clearer view of Liev's nice fat dick and big low-hangers.

Thanks R27 - Liev does have a nice looking cock - hopefully Naomi appreciates that meat.

by Anonymousreply 2803/04/2013

I think Naomi prefers her gal-pal Nicole's ladyham.

So who is meeting Liev's needs, I wonder?

by Anonymousreply 2903/04/2013

He was so hot in "Goon". He is utterly dreamy.

by Anonymousreply 3003/04/2013

Which movie is the nude shot from?

by Anonymousreply 3103/04/2013

R31, that's a tabloid shot of Liev sunbathing with his girthy penis exposed.

by Anonymousreply 3203/04/2013

I was downtown a couple of years ago and there was a cute guy walking a really adorable dog. I stopped and patted the dog who was all bouncy and excited, then went on my way. My friend then told me that the guy was Liev. I didn't realise it was him as I was busy playing with his dog. He seemed very sweet but I wonder if he was surprised that I made such a big deal about his dog and never even recognised him.

by Anonymousreply 3303/04/2013

I thought that shot at R27 was a fake.

Liev is great in "Party Girl", where he played a guy with a British accent.

by Anonymousreply 3403/04/2013

Did Naomi marry a homo too?

by Anonymousreply 3503/04/2013

Isn't that a NYC thing? To play with a dog while ignoring the person holding the leash?

by Anonymousreply 3603/04/2013

I didn't totally ignore him, R36, I just didn't recognise him. I told him his dog was sweet and adorable but that's all.

by Anonymousreply 3703/04/2013

My ideal man. Especially after seeing his dick.

by Anonymousreply 3803/04/2013

That's a SEXY man, who works to keep relatively fit, but obviously isn't so wrapped up in his body that he can't enjoy a good plate of food now and then. The best kind of man.

by Anonymousreply 3903/04/2013

Why is he showing his underwear? Isn't that somethink kids did about 10 years ago?

He is the same degree of hairiness as ever but the chest hair has now mostly turned grey which makes it less visible in those photos.

[quote]He looked miserable trailing Naomi Watts on the red carpet at the Oscars.

His ego can't deal with the fact that Naomi is the one with the bigger career. And he is known to cheat on her. He's also dismissive of autograph seekers and most of the H'wood trappings. Very much an intellectual snob. Think baby Mandy Patinkin.

by Anonymousreply 4803/04/2013

I noticed at most of the awards shows recently...he had to also be a presenter and not just Naomi's husband.

by Anonymousreply 4903/04/2013

He was never attractive. He's fine as an actor but he simply does not have a pretty face.

He actually has a show premiering in June on Showtime titled RAY DONOVAN. Sadly, Jon Voight co-stars, but I'll watch it anyway:

Yes. He played one in MIXED NUTS with Steve Martin, Mrs. Tom Hanks and an annoying (as usual) Adam Sandler:

He also played a cross-dresser in Taking Woodstock, a charming little Ang Lee movie.

He's doing his pec workouts wrong, his nips are almost on his stomach.

There's an exercise you do to fix this.

He's in some bad indie film with Helen Hunt where Ezra Miller plays his gay son. He has the best swimming pool scene ever!! So hot.

R54 [quote]The posters who are asking if this guy is Jewish? Uh? HELLO! The name,Liev Schreiber?!!Please!

Please what? Liev is a Slavic (i.e. not Jewish) name and his father is of Austrian Protestant descent. It's not like he is called Manny Goldfarbowitz.

R68, I think you mean Goldfarbowitzberg.

Why does he have a body like Justin Bieber?

I saw him in Ray Donovan which was good except I never thought he was attractive.

by Anonymousreply 7605/18/2013

So none of you bitches watched RAY DONOVAN? I think it has the potential to be the next SOPRANOS... or at least a very, very good show. I was very impressed. Everyone was excellent, even that guy from JOHN FROM CINCINNATI. The story seems to have a lot of weight and there is a lot they can do with this ensemble, I think.

by Anonymousreply 7707/02/2013

R77, they feature him kicking a door in all of the commercials. Unfortunately, it looks more like an old man bumping into a door as it opens.

When the midget did it in "The Transporter" it was cool. When Liev does it, it comes off as grumpy/grouchy.

by Anonymousreply 7807/02/2013

He shows his ass briefly in Walking and Talking IIRC

by Anonymousreply 7907/02/2013

So how he opens the door in the commercial is how you judge the show? The stupidity astounds.

Glad to see it is getting very good reviews for the most part. I've seen even a few four-stars.

by Anonymousreply 8007/02/2013

My cousin's friend who is a stylist to ALL the big names in Hollywood heard that Tony Danza and Danny Divito took turns giving Liev Shreiber Cleveland Steamers on the set of "Charles in Charge".

And, yes, a bad promo played over and over again turns me away from a show, R80.

by Anonymousreply 8107/02/2013

He reminds me of a badger.

FWIW, Pablo is his half-brother.

I wonder what kind of relationship they have, if any.

Liev Schreiber has given superb stage performances in BETRAYAL, TALK RADIO, and in Shakespeare.

by Anonymousreply 8507/02/2013

Pablo and his friend James Ransome were the best part of THE WIRE. I wish they'd kept them past the season they were on (2nd?).
