Check out the comments under the main article here:

Chris Pratt (movie actor) carries a Keg

The people leaving comments under the article are really ripping the guy apart and being very mean.

They're calling him fat and unattractive.

Here's just one or two samples from the comment section:

He's always had such a milk white DAD BOD. Even before he was a dad.

Needs to lay off the keg, he's starting to give the Stay Puff Marshmallow man a run for the money.

So annoying when an average looking cheesy actor hits fame and fortune. Just goes to show the business is all about timing; being in the right place at the right time, knowing the right people, and a LOT of luck.

Men become invisible at 39 - now they know how women feel
  • A new study suggests that men become invisible to younger women as they approach 40. Now they know how females feel, says Bibi Lynch

    By Bibi Lynch
    09 Jul 2014

    Now I hate other people’s bad news (that’s not wholly true — but I like to appear kind in print) — but this new DEVASTATING research did make me laugh. Quite hard, in fact.

    A just-out survey - conducted by Crown Clinic Manchester — a hair transplant place, so I think we know where we’re going here — declares that men become sexually "invisible" to young women when they hit 39 years old.

    That’s right, 39.

    The same age as David Beckham, Russell Brand, Leonardo DiCaprio and many men I’ve got off buses to follow, such has been their appeal.

    (I’ve never actually got off a bus* to follow a man. I’m making a fanciful point. *Always cabs)

    The study says 52% of respondents believe that men lose their allure as they reach 40 — and 39+ men are viewed as father figures rather than sex symbols (because no-one has ever wanted to f--- a father, right…? Go away, Hugh Jackman.

    You and your active sperm) and the most obvious sign of this change (manopause?) is that women no longer eye-up these sad old gits in bars.

    Of those surveyed, 54% said men not being chatted up on nights out was the clearest sign they no longer existed, sexually.

    The other "signs" are greying hair, double chins, thinning hair and having bad teeth.

    So far so utterly predictable.

    In fact, I’ve never heard such nonsense. Sexual attractiveness has never just been about looks — and looks do not go to poop at 39!

    It’s about attitude and confidence and intelligence and wit and charm and, subconsciously, fertility.

    And you don't have to be married to a Dimbleby to know that men can still father kids well into their seventh decade — so this study doesn't stand up to rigorous scrutiny.

    Me and the photo of Bradley Cooper I’m stroking as I type insist you 39-year-old men know what rubbish this report is.

    But if it has pained you, may I proffer a tiny HAHAHAHAHA?

    I’m no Miss Andry, but, boy, women suffer much more than men from such looks-ist attitudes.

    (Women’s perception of what’s attractive in the opposite sex is way broader and more forgiving. We will factor in personality etc; many men don’t.)

    A 41-year-old male friend of mine recently told me he doesn’t go out with women over 23 because of how good 23-year-olds look.

    I’m 48. Imagine what my freckly face did when I heard those bon mots.

    Still not convinced, though?

    Still worried you’re now invisible to the (sometimes) fairer sex?

    Then let me help you.

    Let me tell you how to make yourself not just visible but irresistible!

    1. Grow a beard.
    I hate to be that person, but… They. Are. Just. So. Sexy. Truly. They’re masculine and rough and ooh! It’s only men who think they’re trendy-twatty. Women blooming well adore them. Hirsutes you, Sir! (Sorry.)

    2. Step out of ‘broadcast’ mode.

    Listen, too. Nothing is as flattering as being really heard. (That’s why sweet intimate conversations melt hearts.)

    And nothing is as flattening as being talked over.

    I had a boyfriend once who would repeat what I’d just said - only loudly - and get the laugh. Megaphone-voiced git.

    3) Get a job at an Apple Store.

    I can’t quite put my finger on it (for fear of breaking it) but there is something so delicious and enticing about men who work at Apple. Is it their passion?

    Their in-depth knowledge?

    Or the "You saved all my photos and therefore my life!" gratitude they stir in you? I don’t know.

    But I know women (and men) love them.

    A friend of mine works in an Apple Store in the States and said half his staff are "helping" customers out of hours. If you know what I mean. I certainly fixated on "Tom" at the Regent Street store.

    To the extent that when my friend Baylen came to meet me and my poorly Mac there - to go on to lunch - "Tom" was simply repeating "I have to go now, Bibi. I have to go."

    Please don’t worry about this survey (or any survey for that matter). You are not invisible post-39. But to be on the safe side I suggest you stop shaving, quit talking and get yourself a bright blue T-shirt. Just in case

The Great Sadness of [Movie Actor] Ben Affleck

By Naomi Fry
March 24, 2018

...Since the split, Affleck has been photographed more than once by the paparazzi, looking despondent. 

...As his younger co-stars, the actors Garrett Hedlund and Charlie Hunnam, wrestled in the surf like purebred puppies, Affleck, who is forty-five, was photographed wading into the ocean carrying a small red life preserver, running in the shallow waters, and towelling off on the beach. The tattoo—so gargantuan that the bird’s tail found itself dipping below the waistband of Affleck’s blue swim trunks—was plainly visible.

 In one image, the actor stands alone, looking off into the middle distance. 

His gut is pooching outward in a way that, in a more enlightened country like, say, France, would perhaps be considered virile, not unlike the lusty Gérard Depardieu in his prime but, in fitness-fascist America, tends to read as Homer Simpsonesque. 

A blue-gray towel is wrapped protectively around his midsection—recalling a shy teen at the local pool. 

Staring at the water before him, his gaze obscure and empty, Affleck is a defeated Roman senator, or, perhaps, the most anti-Romantic version imaginable of Caspar David Friedrich’s 1818 “Wanderer in the Sea of Fog.” 

The image suggests not just the fall of Affleck but the coming fall of man. There is something about this exhausted father that reflexively induces panic. We’ve been living in a world run by Afflecks for so long, will we even know ourselves when they’re gone?
