Hugh Jackman looks like he is married to his overweight mother. No way in hell would a straight guy stay with a woman like that. She is quite lucky though, doesn't have to worry about him straying with hotter chicks, can eat whatever she wants, doesn't have to go the gym and lives in the lap of multimillionaire luxury as his beard. I always thought she is a lesbian.

Agree with R3 that Goopy could do better. Chris Martin looks like a dumb donkey and his music is shitty too.

R42, You really need to get out more. I know many handsome straights that date and are happily married to objectively far, far less attractive ladies. Sometimes their overweight wives remind them of their Mothers or sisters, other times there's a strong emotional and intellectual connection. It also could be the case that the man doesn't want competition from other straights, and wants to be adored and even worshiped.

I've heard straights tell me that less attractive ladies are usually much better in bed because they try far harder to please. That's what almost every man wants.

by Anonymousreply 4707/21/2013

R47 I don't want to harp on appearances, but if one partner in a relationship does not care about her or his looks it is just very disrespectful toward the partner who does. Letting yourself go is just not cool.

by Anonymousreply 4807/21/2013

r52 I think your post is ridiculous. Lots of straight men end up with homely wives. If anything, they might cheat on their wives, but the idea they would never marry them or love them is strange. Especially since straight men are also looking for women that can be good mothers, and finding that it in attractive women doesn't always work out.

by Anonymousreply 4907/21/2013

r48 I agree. But many of these attractive partners got together with homely and unkempt people from the get go. It isn't always about people "letting themselves go." These people were always homely.

R48, Of course partners should focus on health and physical fitness, as well as grooming and flattering clothes, to look sexually appealing to each other. Just that there are many factors besides one's looks of why partners match up and happily stay together.

r56 - I halfway agree; Rob Lowe's older son is just sort of average looking. And the younger one will probably outgrow the ugly and turn out average as well. But neither got their dad's pretty genes.

Didn't their nanny or someone like that sue them for sexual harrassment? I think it got hushed up eventually, but I got the impression they are some major swingers.

Pierce Brosnan and Moby Dick

by Anonymousreply 6507/21/2013

Over half the relationships mentioned aren't real and are straight up bearding arrangements, so there's not much that needs explaining. With the others, well, one would assume there are other factors, like love, compatibility, loyalty and shared values. Most of these guys married when they were struggling actors, and maybe the hot women were looking at men with more money, or, these guys just have different taste, and they find these women hot, even if other men don't. The fact that these women stayed with them through lean times and showed devotion and loyalty is in their favor. I mean, the actors have to know those women love them, whereas some guy chasing after a young pretty thing is probably always wondering if she's a gold digger, or a starlet using his fame and publicity to get ahead in the business.

I vaguely recall reading an interview with Brosnan in which he said that, after watching his first wife waste away from ovarian cancer, he found very thin women unattractive. His adopted daughter just recently died of cancer as well. Maybe being surrounded by loved who were emaciated due to illness has something to do with it.

Plus, it's not like he himself hasn't packed on the pounds recently. Granted, he still looks attractive, but nothing like he did 15 years ago.

Now that she's a mother she totally lacks self-control and gorges herself with fattening food instead of eating sensible meals. Was it having children that turned her into a glutton, R72? Are you speaking from a similar experience?

by Anonymousreply 8507/21/2013

r72 - Having children didn't make her obese for life. And it's silly to pretend that the only choices are fat or anorexic. But obvs both she and Pierce are cool with her looks, so good on her.

This 2008 blind item was revealed as being about them. It's from Lainey, whom some of you hate, so take it or leave it:

Just As She Is

And many find this man perfect. Dashing, debonair, scandal-free, which is why some of late have been questioning his devotion to his wife, baffled by the attraction. Still… he remains happily married and committed, he loves her just as she is, but it turns out, what she is is a girl who likes other girls. With his permission.

A classic marriage of convenience... their commitment runs deep, they care for each other dearly, but they just don’t sleep in the same bed. As for his preferences – oddly enough, he doesn’t seem to have any. The easy assumption would be that he’s meanders about like John Travolta at a massage parlour, which isn’t the case. Not even close. No affairs, no gay hook ups, nothing. Just happy that his wife is happy… true love indeed.

Having children doesn't make a woman obese, but some people gain more easily than others and having children can increase that tendency.

Having children can also make a woman realize that there are things more important than having a perfect body, something some Dataloungers could stand to learn.

You're the one claiming people think she should have "a perfect body." Nobody has made that claim. Do you ALWAYS stray so far from the truth or just when it's hitting home, Tubby?

She's morbidly obese and placing herself at risk to not even see her own children grow into adulthood. What kind of parenting is that????

by Anonymousreply 9807/22/2013

R57 I am definitely a believer in feminism, but honestly I also truly believe that still a large number of women only want to get married because they are after financial security. Once they got a man they just don't care about their appearance and their looks anymore (same goes for men btw!) I don't get that kind of attitude, I find it selfish, unsophisticated and careless. Not only want I look good or as best as I can for my partner and my children, but I also want to see something nice when I look in the mirror. Humans have a desire for beauty. It's not just a thing of today's media saturated times, it has always been that way - and it does not make us superficial individuals when we still do care about our looks!

Falling in love encompasses more than just physical attraction. You fall in love with the person and have an emotional and intellectual connection as well. I'm objectively better looking than my boyfriend, but he's the best man I've ever dated. I've dated very attractive guys who turn out to be not-so-great boyfriends. I'd rather have what I have now.

r99 My comment wasn't misogynistic at all. Quite the opposite. People being shocked that a rich and famous straight man is with a less attractive women(which is subjective, these men could actually think their women are gorgeous) is odd. It assumes that they ONLY consider the looks of their partner. They are also looking for personality and who can be a good mother(if he wants children).

Ref Pierce Brosnan's wife, some men REALLY like the chubby girls. My next door neighbor is 54 and overweight, she's Italian with a big beautiful smile and she looks almost sloppy overweight but men are just drawn to her. She radiates warmth and confidence and she NEVER says anything nasty or mean about people. One night at a neighborhood BBQ I overheard a good looking 30 something tell another young guy "God she's great, I would love to fuck her".

Some of the guys I work with really go for the chubby girls if they're pretty and well dressed. Probably the same reason some guys like bears.

R76. I had not seen that interview but I did read the one where he talked about how wonderful the 2nd Mrs Brosnan because she accepted the fact that he and his children had loved the first Mrs Brosnan so much. I am not describing it well, but it made me have a lot of respect for him. He must be a real, level headed, thoughtful person to be so mature and respectful. I was sorry too about his daughter. Dreadful thing to lose a child to the same disease.
