I think he's banged up a little bit for that particular role, but it's rare when someone that beautiful in youth is able to sustain it without constant acting work. After Smallville, he didn't really do much, so there was no reason to maintain his appearance.

Denzel Washington was a Hollywood leading man who's sex appeal was part of his popularity. While Tom just does TV and is set for life from Smallville. He never seemed like he gave a shit about acting to me. He just keeps it up for extra money. He's one of those formerly beautiful guys who just had the accident of good genetic combinations. He never tried to sell his looks more than he had to.

A lot of people with wide babyfaces with pouty lips and well endowed physiques have some extra fat cushion I believe. A lot of them gain weight with age as the metabolism slows. People who are always skinny with long features age even worse. I don't think Tom looks bad, the extra fat softens your aging. He just needs to go to gym to burn a bit off.

He went from looking about 8-10 years younger than his real age to looking age appropriate in his forties. The same thing happened to be in my mid forties, a combination of time catching up with me + weight gain and I went from looking like age 32 at age 40 to looking like my real age by 45.

A lot of people made the Matthew Shepard connection because of the timing. I mean superheroes, vampires and werewolves have always been coded too as gay or ethnic minorities. Clark is clearly an outsider. So the writers knew what they were doing.

He never really cared for acting because if he did. Then he would have pushed for more film opportunities. Even though he was 34 when Smallville ended that was still young enough to try to get into Hollywood and he just left a big show that was on for ten years. He could have done better. He's not hungry for fame and his whole career is even the definition of the "right place, right time." He was working some blue-collar job and got discovered for modeling (which he didn't enjoy) and then just went on a few auditions and got the role of Clark with little to no experience. That said, he remained humble and down-to-earth and never heard any diva stories.

R84, yes, it does!

Your pores will never become tiny, but Retin A gel (gel, because you have blackheads) will give your skin a smoother appearance. If you have dry skin, use the cream version.

Also, blackheads need to be extracted. A good facial once a week, does the job.

Google how to do it at home, or pay an esthetician to do it for you.

[quote]According to SyFy Wire, the team behind Smallville instated a “no tights, no flight” rule before they even filmed the show’s pilot. The series was never supposed to be about Superman. Instead, the show was really supposed to be about Clark Kent figuring things out as a teenager. Welling explained that he and the production team all agreed the moment Clark put on the suit, his life was figured out. That’s not the story the show wanted to tell.

That makes complete sense to me, BUT even by that logic, wouldn't it have been true to the series and very effective to have Clark put on the suit at the very final image of the final episode? How would that have been a "betrayal" of what they were trying to do with the series?

Really, everything I've read about Welling paints him as kind of a dick and very difficult off set.

But yeah, casting usually sucks for these sorts of things because they don't treat the sources with respect. They're still stuck in the mode it's for the chil'ren and the unwashed masses, so it doesn't matter if it's utter shit... they'll buy anything and if they don't they're all the isms.
