Food, Celebrity Portraits, and Food Culture

Men Are Cool or Funny with their Food

I want to see a pin-up magazine spread with my favorite male entertainers, I’m just saying. But, no, I just gotta settle with men doing funny poses and faces with their food~ Not like I can complain with Conan~ or Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie.

But it seems the only way a woman gets to be silly in a photoshoot is when it’s with a dude, but I’m only making silly conclusions with the photoshoot of John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer for Entertainment Weekly. Maybe I’m wrong and all women don’t need to be sexualized with food. Maybe they can be just like the everyday Joe and munch on that sandwich.

Or… that watermelon slice.


What are your favorite celebrity shots with food?

    The most interesting thing to see is how different the Bon Appetit cover looks to any other cover. Gwyneth has FRECKLES??? When did she ever have freckles?

    Can Bjork’s Swan dress count as food? Do people eat swan? Maybe someone should get a goose dress next.

    About Classic Hollywood, I think… Marylin did like eating, so there’s a big chance she’s eating that burger. Then again, the Hollywood machine could have fabricated that idea as well. We… may… never actually know.

      @ghost, That’s why I don’t usually go for fashion shoots. American Vogue, Bazaar, etc. They all apply a HEAVY layer to erase imperfection that… it makes them all look flat and plastic. I mean, a little photoshop it’s okay, I don’t mind a little bit of clean up, but things have gotten so out of hand.

      About Marilyn… PR machine? xD I think it’s hard to tarnish the PR of a star that has already gone. PR is an interesting thing to study, but a precious thing to just stay away from. xD
