Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • Loved the Marilyn Manson joke :D

  • Xulux

    Don't know why you made Hendricks the poster-girl for this article. She's even more fetching without make-up.

  • Maille K Yarwood

    I love the Tom Hardy one.

  • The Effron picture should more accurately be labeled without makeup, with haircut and 10 years....

    not comparing apples to apples, is what I'm saying...

  • Lee

    RFLMFAO!!! Thanks for my big belly laugh for today, Dustin :)

  • Dominic

    they more look like a bad tan job , with only the top halves of their face darker ..can't put makeup on ur scraggly beard ... however there's a bit of a bait-and-switch going on , as u advertised the story with a picture of a woman , but only discussed men ...and whoever SHE is , she didn't need makeup either ....

  • Debra Kessing

    wait. is that last photo really Marilyn Manson? It's not, right? I'm being gullible ... right?

    **must read all comments before opening big mouth. TG though, I couldn't stop staring at him.

  • Coolg82

    This kinda makes me wonder what is going on with make-up trends, for everyone. Its gotten to the point where make-up is applied in an almost caricature way, emphasizing certain features instead of lightening/darkening skin tone and evening skin tone. Looking at the picture of Christina Hendricks makes me wonder what they do to her face to make it look like she is nothing but cheeks and lips in make-up, or why Hugh Jackman's eyes have to be as tiny as possible. Also, Bradley Cooper needs to fire his make-up person, because it is obvious where they got make-up in his beard, and then the rest of his face is a different color.

  • StellaBartois

    A lot of the make-up fails have to do with make-up application that is better suited for a photo shoot (with controlled lighting) than a red carpet (with the face subjected to multiple, simultaneous flashes of light). The Jon Hamm picture is a great example, you can see the wad of translucent powder on his upper nose. Translucent powder reflects light. In stable lighting, it will look fine, but in a blast of lightbulbs, you'll end up looking like someone flour bombed your face.

    There's also the whole other business of "contouring" that the likes of the Kardashians have popularized, doing theatre-style make-up for everyday application that ends up looking, in my opinion, bloody ridiculous unless you are actually performing on stage.

    Edit: Here's another example of a make-up fail on the red carpet from a couple months ago.


  • e jerry powell

    This is pretty much across the board, but I'd like to dedicate it just a little bit more to Jon Hamm. Seriously, whoever put blush over your rosacea should be shot.

    Also, I get not wanting foundation to bleed into the hairline, but Jeez Louise, the ring-around-the-forehead look is just....


  • Allijo

    Any particular reason why this list is all men?

  • e jerry powell

    Yes, but you'll have to research it for yourself.

  • John W

    That last one is a good one! :-).

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Oh my god, they're hideous!


  • e jerry powell

    Well, with the exception of Tom Cruise, who I wouldn't do even if he needed it for spinal correction, I would bang all of those dudes even harder without makeup. Particularly if Bradley Cooper still has that American Sniper booty attached to his backside.

  • manting

    its his I heart NPR sign that makes that picture awesome. He is a big Marty Moss Coane and Marry Cantell fan cause he is all about the WHYY Philthadelphia's own. Science Fridays motherfucker!

  • e jerry powell

    Yes, but it's still mostly about the ass.


  • tarqueeny

    Even Marilyn Manson?

  • e jerry powell

    Okay, you caught me there.

    HELL, NO.

    I don't take nasty-looking sloppy seconds from Rose McGowan, either.

  • emmalita

    We're all ignoring that one.

    RE: ON B.C.:

    The entire I was watch the Strain the other I couldn't get over how much Corey Stoll reminded me of Cooper.


    He's like the budget version.

  • e jerry powell

    But does he have the American Sniper booty?

    It's like a sunset...

  • Nicholas

    Wait..what? They put a rug on his beautiful head? SMH

  • $113152758

    I know, it's almost enough to make me not watch the show. It's to distracting.

  • Buck off

    I don't see it, nothing remotely resembling an emu.

  • stryker1121

    Gargoyles, the lot of 'em!

  • Benny Gesserit

    If you hate someone, show them how one of Tom Cruise's front teeth is directly under his nose, instead on one side.

  • emmalita

    I love this whole exchange. The whole thing.

  • Buck off

    Centre tooth is second only to bad kerning, with the persistent sounds of (insert local wildlife) a close third.

  • Benny Gesserit

    OH MY GOD there's a "cheeseburger" bird who perches outside my bedroom window every damn morning. I hate him SO MUCH!!!

  • Buck off

    So that's two and three covered, I'm sure a spambot will come along soon to grace us with number one.

    I love foxes, I don't lone foxes singing me the song of their people in my garden just as I'm dropping off to sleep.

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Foxes are assholes.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Like this?

  • Benny Gesserit

    You don't suppose Grant and Cruise are ... rel


  • AvaLehra

    That GIF never gets old. Seriously.

  • kirbyjay

    Looks like a controlled demolition

  • Mrs. Julien
  • BendinIntheWind

    Oh my goodness I'M LATE TO THE GIF PARTY


  • tarqueeny

    Cary Grant!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mrs. Julien

    Oh my gawd! My gif giffed. MY FIRST GIF!

  • emmalita

    How did you do that?

  • Mrs. Julien

    I have no idea.

  • ZbornakSyndrome

    Spencer and I are so proud of you!


  • Mrs. Julien

    So now you are Katharine Hepburn AND Bea Arthur. That just seems greedy to me.

  • e jerry powell

    Throw in some Rosalind Russell or Angela Lansbury and then we'll see...

  • ZbornakSyndrome
  • Mrs. Julien


  • ZbornakSyndrome
  • Mrs. Julien

    Someone told me I looked like her once and I quipped back, "With the same haughty demeanor?"

  • ZbornakSyndrome
  • Benny Gesserit

    Your president has a message for you.


  • Mrs. Julien

    I'm Canuckian.

  • Benny Gesserit

    Well, ok, THEIR president has a message for you. I don't believe there is recorded evidence of Harper clapping because he's afraid it'll lead to dancing and perhaps even naughty times.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Harper's the best middle management employee that insurance company ever had!

  • Benny Gesserit

    His spreadsheets are works of ART.

  • kkirkpat

    Hey, I love me a good spreadsheet. There's no way anything Harper produces could be considered art.

  • Benny Gesserit

    Art vs Garbage - sometimes it's hard to tell. Though I would rather he stick with Excel if I had my 'druthers.

  • Buck off
  • Mrs. Julien

    When Mr. Julien makes that face he always asks, "What news from Mordor, my lord?"

  • BWeaves

    OK, so I know the last one is supposed to be the punchline, but I have no idea who it is. The without make one is not Marilyn Mason, but someone else, because I've seen MM without makeup and he looks like Alan Rickman.

  • Ryan Rebalkin

    BWeaves •The last person is this;


  • BWeaves

    Thank you! Monson / Manson, I get it now.

  • pajiba

    Holy shit. I can't believe someone actually identified him!

  • All the (ex) Mormons in the house got it.

  • Irina

    Last pic: #CreepyMassMurderer

  • asherlev1

    Idk, that DanRad pic without makeup doesn't look natural.

  • tarqueeny

    It's not, it's from a photoshoot. Surely all photoshoots include hair and makeup. Some of the "without" pictures are from shoots, so shouldn't be included. But then, I don't think we can be logical about this list.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    and I'm not sure if all of the "with" photos involve makeup, like Bradley Cooper's or John Hamm's. But I'm down with the spirit of the exercise.

  • e jerry powell

    Mmmm, I'd disagree. Check the gaps between foundation and hairline on most of these.

  • tarqueeny

    How else can you explain the Cooper "with" picture? Does his face selectively tan? I think men get tanned even with beards? But then, he did have a pretty full beard for a while, so maybe that picture was taken after he shaved, hence the tan line?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    He might've spray tanned, is what I was thinking.

  • Benny Gesserit

    Unless it's cut very close, it doesn't tan well or at all. The rule is you decide whether you're keeping the beard before the first good 'sun' of summer.

  • asherlev1

    Oh, I totally agree with you! But then I'm also completely irrational when it comes to DanRad, so I couldn't refrain from commenting. Oops.

  • tarqueeny

    No probs. I'm really looking forward to his next films. Very excited for Horns especially.

  • Ryan Ambrose

    [lowers mace and hide shield]

    Well played, Dustin. Well played.

  • Legally Insignificant

    The Tom Hardy one made me LOL. Bronson is such a great film.

  • Alicia

    Dang. I don't think I've ever seen Marilyn Manson without makeup before. Not sure what I expected him to look like.

  • guyminuslife
  • e jerry powell

    It's not really all that stark a contrast, except that boyfriend gets busy with some lip liner, because his top lip is so thin otherwise.

  • vivkane

    Bradley Cooper: Guys, does it look weird that you just makeuped around my beard?
    Makeup artists: No way, Brad. Nooooo one will be able to tell.
    Brad: Okay, I'll trust you.
    MA: *snicker*

  • Mrs. Julien

    Thank you Dustin, I enjoy any opportunity to say, "That's a lot of slap."

  • Zac Efron without makeup looks like some kind of Vegas lounge singer 20 years and 5 face lifts past his prime.


  • Mrs. Julien

    He looks like what Wayne Newton THINKS he looks like.

  • e jerry powell

    Wayne Newton did look just like that before his voice dropped and he stopped sounding like Brenda Lee.

  • THANK YOU. That's it EXACTLY.

  • Pete Arado

    I'll proudly admit I love this movie. Chris Evans is hysterical.

  • Buck off

    I watched it recently, brilliant.

  • tarqueeny

    Evans is really quite a versatile actor. I think because he's a pretty boy his talents tend to get overlooked.

  • tarqueeny

    This film is so bad that it's actually almost good compared to most teen films.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    Why would anyone put makeup on a Hamm?

  • Buck off


    I mean penis.

    Ah bugger, anything related to Jon Hamm just penis penis penis.

    Pipe down there, lions.

  • Maguita NYC

    I apologize in advance: The camera lens refused to go wider for this shot.

  • Benny Gesserit

    Memo to self: country sausage for Sunday breakfast

  • Lee

    With meatballs

  • Maguita NYC

    Funny thing, we only see the sausage. I bet @ejerrypowell:disqus could explain why?

  • e jerry powell


    My good goodness.

    I think I need a little me time now.

  • Benny Gesserit

    You don't make up on a Hamm, you get make up off a hors... crap.

  • Because you're out of cloves?

  • Mrs. Julien

    Powder for the red carpet cameras, sweetie darling.
