GQ’s Men of The Year 2013 – Justin Timberlake, Matthew McConaughey, Kendrick Lamar and James Gandolfini

gq covers

For their December issue, GQ honored the men they thought shaped 2013, or at least parts of it. Photographer Sebastian Kim shot Justin Timberlake the “The Hastag of the Year” seriously, Kendrick Lamar the “Rapper of The Year“. Matthew McConaughey, “Leading Man of The Year,” and Will Ferrell, “Funnyman of The Year for profiles. The fifth cover went to the late James Gandolfini, honored by his best and closest friends.

Depending on who you ask, JT had the comeback of the year, releasing not one but two records, ‘The 20/20 Experience’ and co-starring in ‘Runner Runner.’ However, it was the reviews he received for both that made him question himself. He tells Amy Wallace that he felt “like a bunch of people just took a s*** on my face” when Variety ran an article titled “Why Justin Timberlake Should Stop Acting” and Billboard gave less than favorable critiques of the second part of ‘20/20.’

This face,” he says, circling it with one finger.

“This recognizable face that you work so hard to get—not because you want the recognition but because you know you’re made to do it.” This face, he’s saying, comes at a cost. “The movie didn’t do well at the box office, so I should quit? Hold on a second. If I was somebody else, you wouldn’t have said that. I have the number one album this week, and I shouldn’t have released it? Come on, man. You sound like a dickhead…. It just shocked me because, like, you’re trade magazines. None of your opinions count. And by the way, none of you can do it.” 

Ugh, JT, bruh. That wasn’t just the magazine’s opinions, that was a lot of people’s opinions.

But moving on…Kendrick Lamar also had a banner year, full of praise, made even bigger when he dropped arguably the rap verse of the year on Big Sean‘s “Control.” That, and declaring himself “The King of New York” made a lot of people mad, but gave the rap game the fire it needed, even if it only lasted a couple of weeks. If you want to know what’s going on between him and Drake, Lamar says things are “cool” but it would “okay” if they weren’t. Mmmhmm…

You can read the rest of JT Matthew and Kendrick‘s features now. The magazines hit newsstands on November 19.

‘Cause They’re Cousins! Identical Cousins All the Way…Sing With Me! Let’s Chat About Jared Leto, Glenn Close and Matthew McConaughey While We’re At It

A hotdog makes her lose control?

 

C’mon.  Sing with me!  Listen, even I’m too young to remember this show except for reruns…but I totally thought of the theme song to The Patty Duke Show when I saw the picture of Jared Leto (!) in drag for the upcoming film,  Dallas Buyers Club.  Jared TOTALLY looks like Glenn Close’s iconic character Alex Forrest from Fatal Attractionor at least a cousin, right?

 

 

You may have heard about this film already. The usually hot-piece of ass, Matthew McConaughey is starring in the film which is “loosely based on the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, a drug taking, women loving, homophobic man who, in 1986 was diagnosed with full blown HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live”.

In case you haven’t seen MM’s physical transformation from his perfect form in Magic Mike to the very thin and frail appearance for DBC, we’ve got a side by side comparison for you.

 

Matthew’s startling transformation…

 

Wow.  Matthew is certainly trying the DeNiro/Hanks/Theron-method acting pretentiousness trick to garner a few award nominations, isn’t he?  Sorry to be so jaded, but…

“Alright, alright, alright” had better be said in an acceptance speech.

We know what you’re listening to, Bro.

Hey now.  Look who is trying hard for an Oscar nomination!  None other than “alright alright alright” himself.  Matthew McConaughey is “in training” for a role in an upcoming new movie.

“…the usually muscular star’s body transformation is all for an important new film role in The Dallas Buyer’s Club, which tells the real-life story of Ron Woodruff, a drug addict in 1980s-era Texas who contracts HIV, and became one of the first AIDS activists.

 “I’m playing a guy who was sick and would have loved to have been healthier but wasn’t. For me, it’s more of a mental thing than a physical thing,” McConaughey told Us in August of playing Woodruff, who launched one of the first-ever AIDS support groups.

Hooooboy.

I don’t mind stealin’ bread watching Matthew hone his “craft” by pulling a Christian Bale on us, as long as we wears THIS to the Oscars.

Seriously, alright alright alright.
