In the interest of keeping feminist, transgendered web trolls from the UK happy

(you know who you are ParisIsPissedOff),

this is the thread to even out the
laughing at 50-something year old pop star women for looking manly and unattractive commentary

(if they left John Kerry and Michael Moore off the list, their anti-conservative bias ruined this list):

Top 100 Un-Sexy Males of 2008
  • [100] TOM BRADY
    SUPER BOWL-CUT

    Oh, how quickly we turn on our heroes! Once a loveable Everyman, he's now an overexposed, supermodel-dating, out-of-wedlock-fathering, big-game-losing metrosexual — with a bowl haircut.

    [99] JERRY YANG
    YAHOO COLLABORATOR

    Yahoo's Chinese-American founder allowed his company to give up the IP address of a Chinese Yahoo subscriber who'd criticized the Chinese government, resulting in that guy's arrest, torture, and imprisonment. May your wang get run over by a Communist tank.

    [98] FAT EMINEM
    ROTUND RAPPER

    It's entirely possible that the rumors of Mr. Mathers's weight problem have been taken — pardon the pun — out of proportion. But
    if packing on a few pounds is keeping him out of the spotlight, then we can't really say we mind all that much.

    [97] QUAGMIRE
    UNFUNNY CARTOON

    Note to Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane: nothing screams hilarity like jokes about date rape!

    [95] DREW CAREY
    GROSS HOST

    Since being demoted from unfunny sitcoms to warmed-over game shows, Drew Carey has been a walking advertisement for misery.

    [92] ADNAN GHALIB
    EX-BRITNEY BEAU

    One of the saddest small details of Britney Spears's recent downward spiral was her being spotted dating the very bottom-feeding parasites who've turned her life into a horror show of never-ending surveillance. In this celebrity version of Stockholm syndrome, Adnan was puppetmaster general.

    [76] JOEL OSTEEN
    PENTECOSTAL PEST

    An enabler for religious extremists like Mike Huckabee, this unusually creepy empire-building Bible thumper and his wife, Victoria, have turned the word of the Lord into a self-serving virus of positive thoughts and financial-planning advice. Oh, and he looks like a flesh robot made from the worst traits of Martin Short, Tony Robbins, and Steve Guttenberg.

    [42] GENE SIMMONS
    TONGUE KISS-ER

    Dude, put the makeup back on! Seldom has a man whose sole raison d'être seems to be seducing the opposite sex been so profoundly unsexy. The towering arrogance. The creepy lasciviousness of that serpentine tongue. The long-standing rumors that he wears a wig. The Gene Simmons reality show, the Gene Simmons magazine, the claims that he has bedded 4800 women, and the accompanying lie-detector test. And if you think any of that is gross, don't even bother googling "Gene Simmons face-lift."

    [41] BILL CLINTON
    CIGAR AFICIONADO

    It's not just that he rhino'd his wife's sure-fire shot at following his presidency — after all, the last time Bill screwed over Hillary, his approval ratings (and his sex appeal) went through the roof. No, it's also that Father Time has not been kind to him. The alabaster ex-prez's grandmotherly demeanor — that bulbous nose! that wiry white hair! — now conjures none of his notorious past as Oval Office blowjob king, but instead reveals a souring senior citizen sapped by a soul-sopping marriage — seemingly a sexless one. And rightly so.

    [31] CHRIS CROCKER
    TOO MANY TEARDROPS FOR ONE HEART TO BE CRYIN'

    An androgynous vlogger — there's an appealing phrase, eh? — piled on a disturbing amount of eyeliner and turned on the sprinklers in his shrieking YouTube plea to "leave Britney alone!" It was an act that suggested Edmund Muskie in a Madonna video. Somewhere, John Waters is writing his next movie.

    [10] PEREZ HILTON
    YENTA SKEEZE

    Responsible newsman Perez Hilton (née Mario Armando Lavandeira Jr.) operates a cruel, bafflingly popular Web site about celebrities on which he posts unflattering photographs and defaces them with childish lettering and crude insults.

    The poodle-faced, pudgy, sometimes-pink-haired, openly gay blogger also has a penchant for outing actors who don't exactly want their sexual preferences discussed in the public sphere.

    We don't know who loathes him more, the closeted gays whom he shuns for wanting privacy, or the straight stars whom he mocks for being fat, ugly, bitchy, or all of the above. On that last count, at least, pot calling the kettle black, much?

    [8] DR. PHIL
    TOUCHY FEELER

    As if Britney Spears's sorry-ass life couldn't reach a lower low, her parents apparently foisted TV celebrity-parasite Dr. Phil McGraw on her while she was checked into a mental hospital. Could that get any worse?

    If you already felt like heaving yourself repeatedly onto a rusty pile of sharp nails, how were you supposed to have been helped by the unwelcome appearance of a self-serving mustachioed blowhard with a "Dueling Banjos" drawl?

    [4] TOM CRUISE
    MAD SCIENTOLOGIST

    No matter if he's chiding other luminaries for their birthing preferences, or establishing vertical-leap records off sofas, we already knew Tom was nuts — he had us at "Hello, I'm insane."

    Now, though, it seems he's gone fully Cruisazy, starring in an off-the-cuckoo-charts, straight-to-YouTube promotional vid for Scientology. Highlight, among many: "Being a Scientologist, when you drive past an accident, it's not like anyone else. As you drive past, you know you have to do something about it, because you know you're the only one that can really help."

    That's great, Tom. Now if you'll just bust out the Google Maps and plan a field trip with some of your Scientologist buddies to drive past Darfur.

In some thread in the MBC forum, I've been keeping a collection of news stories that poke fun at men for getting older, for looking older, for gaining weight etc, because contrary to popular Madonna fan opinion, famous males sometimes get laughed at and ridiculed for their physical appearance, not just women, and not just Madonna in particular.

You can see some examples of male celebrities getting criticized for looking old and fat by scrolling down this page.

This following page, from This is London mentions the veins of Rolling Stones rock band members Keith Richards and Mick Jagger:

You're so vein: Celebs who take fitness too far

The caption below the photo of Richards and Jagger on that page reads:

Keith Richards and Mick Jagger rock the wrinkly vein look
Pasted in from other threads at the board:

I thought this was interesting, and in my view, this does fit in the context of our thread here about Madonna here.

People don't just judge women by age/appearance, it happens to men, too.

I was reading this review of X-Men Wolverine (the film starring Hugh Jackman), and the male reviewer, Michael Smith, made this comment:
  • That said, Jackman is a pillar of strength, both in his emotional intensity and his physique (age 40? wow), and Schreiber does a delicious villain turn. But "Origins" falls fourth in the film series, even behind the mediocre "X-Men: The Last Stand."

    [review posted on May 2, 2009]
The older I get (I'm in my late 30s), the more amused and somewhat bewildered I am by people's reactions to age and appearance.

There also seem to be two trends at work in society:

(1) On the one hand, there are people running around declaring age 40 "the new 30" (or age 50 is 'the new 30', or age 60 is, etc), so 40+ is not viewed as being old...

(2) And on the other, I see another group of people who are lowering the bar all the time on what is considered "old," so if you're age 40, you're considered a Grandma or Grandpa.

Clearly, this Michael Smith guy thinks that age 40 is pretty ancient.

Why else would he express amazement that a 40 year old man can have a great body and be in shape?

As for people in this second group, it's only a matter of time before the bar on what is considered "old" gets lowered to 35, then 30, then 25, and before you know it, if you're over age 15, you're a 'senior citizen.'

Either reviewer Michael Smith is-

(a.) 25 years old and has this view that anyone over 29 is really old; or

(b.) he is age 40+ himself, is out of shape, maybe flabby and chubby, and he looks at another age-40 guy and wonders to himself,
"How does this guy do it, how does he get or maintain that ripped body at this age?"

If it's "B" above:

All it takes is dedication. Make the time to exercise.

Instead of sitting your butt down on your La-Z-Boy recliner and watching TV when you get home from work, go out jogging for 30 minutes - and cut your calories.

You'll at least get thin if you stick to that plan. If you want Jackman's body, that will likely involve weight training on top of the aerobics.

I am just not understanding the mentality held by some folks that 40 is ancient - that a reviewer would express surprise that a 40- year- old male can be in shape, as though this is really rare.
I just got an e-mail from a friend that has 'before and after' photos of several male celebrities.

The photos show the guys when they were hot, studly, and in shape, alongside photos where they have "let themselves go" and have beer guts, balding heads, or what have you.

People do notice what males look like and pass judgment.

All these Madonna apologists who keep saying people give males a pass and single Madonna out due to her gender are simply wrong.

I'm too lazy to upload every single photo that was in this e-mail, but I'll include several so you can see-

Alec Baldwin, from stud muffin to sagging:

That's right. The media pick on ugly and fat men, including aged and/or over weight male entertainers.
Madonna is not singled out for just being Madonna or for being female.

Another example:

Is that Meat Loaf? No its 'fatman' Val Kilmer (admiring a painting of fat naked lady)
  • By Daily Mail Reporter
    06th December 2009

    He's played one rock star renowned for this charisma and good looks.

    But it appears Hollywood actor Val Kilmer is taking less inspiration from singer Jim Morrison these days - and more so from Meat Loaf.

    Former heartthrob Kilmer, who has dated the likes of Cindy Crawford and Paris Hilton, looked a far cry from the man who women swooned over in his portrayal of Morrison in the 1991 film, The Doors.

    [snip Kilmer photo]

    [caption for snipped photo:]
    Val Kilmer did a good impression of Meat Loaf as he attended an art festival in Miami Beach on Friday

    [snip Kilmer photo]

    Aptly, the Batman actor was admiring a drawling of lady with something of a similarly large physique to is as he mooched around at an art festival at Miami Beach on Friday.

    At one point he was seen freshening his breath with a spray and according to onlookers was keen to dodge photographers inside the venue.

    The 49-year-old star's next project is reportedly to be a film with U.S. rapper 50 Cent, The Gun.

    View Kilmer Photo
    [Their photo caption for the above photos reads:]
    He appeared to have piled on the pounds, but ensured he had minty fresh breath with a quick spray

    Producer Robert Jackson is heading up the film about two friends who get caught up in illegal weapons dealing.

    50 Cent is said to have signed a deal to make three screenplays into movies, WENN reports, with Kilmer tipped to appear in the first one.

    'When you write a song, you need to say it in three minutes or it is overkill,' 50 Cent said.

    'But I like creating stories and going in-depth with characters.'

    [snip side by side comparison photo - Meat Loaf vs Kilmer as Doors lead singer]
    [their photo caption for above photos reads:]
    He appears to have morphed into Meat Loaf these days (seen left) and (right) in his heyday portraying Jim Morrison in the 1991 film The Doors

Photo gallery of over-weight male celebrities (also shows a few females):

Slideshow of overweight celebs
-includes Val Kilmer, Jon Gosselin, Boy George and many others

From the slideshow above:

Val Kilmer
  • Once a Hollywood heartthrob, Val Kilmer has piled on the pounds as of late, going from "Top Gun" to Top Gut. At the AMA Awards this year, Kilmer was virtually unrecognizable (above, far right), and not because of the hat and shades he wore on the red carpet. The 49-year-old "Batman" actor bulked up for his role in "Felon" last year, but never seemed to lose the weight. Bring on the character parts!
Jon Gosselin
    It seems the stress of the media circus surrounding him has really taken its toll on Jon Gosselin. When we first met the "Jon & Kate Plus Eight" star in 2007, he was a lean looking guy. But as the years have passed and the drama surrounding the Gosselins has snowballed, the stress has taken its toll on the 32-year-old's waistline. Hopefully the octodad can get his act together, at least for the sake of his brood. [/li]
K FED (#15 on their list)
  • K-Fed might want to take up back-up dancing again. While Britney's back and looking better than ever, K-fed's new career - Dad - has not been so good for his waistline. And while their breakup (and her comeback) eventually got his ex back in fighting trim, Federline may have used his exodus from the spotlight as an excuse to let himself go. His ex Shar Jackson told US Weekly the added pounds were 'daddy weight! When you are a full time parent, sometimes you can't focus on you.'

    But his most recent weight gain in 2009 has gone above and beyond daddy weight. The former dancer reportedly drew stares when he attended a celebrity sporting event looking large-and-in-charge with a big belly. Is he hoping to join "Celebrity Fit Club"?
Marilyn Manson (#17)
  • Marilyn Manson is known for his controversial on-stage antics and shock rocker persona. But the 40-year-old's latest shock is his 2009 weight gain after his messy break-up with 21-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood. After two years of dating, Manson sings about the painful split on his new album "The High End of Low."

    But in an interview with Spin Magazine in June, Manson seemed to be in a better place, saying, "I can laugh about it now because it's a process I went through, and I need to have a sense of humor about it."
Russell Crowe (#24)
  • Russell Crowe is back in fighting shape!

    The Aussie actor was seen sporting a hefty belly in 2008 - a far cry from his chiseled "Gladiator" look in 1999. The actor packed on the pounds to play a CIA agent opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in last year's "Body of Lies." But it looks like he's gotten back into shape for his role as Robin Hood. The actor ate food with a low glycaemic index to curb his appetite and cycled daily to lose the weight, according to the UK's Daily Mail.
Ed Westwick (#27)
  • 'Gossip Girl' star Ed Westwick may be getting too big for his Upper East Side britches. The British actor has reportedly packed on a few pounds since he first took on the role of Chuck Bass a year in 2007. "The costumers even requested that producers talk to Ed," a source told In Touch Weekly. "They don’t want [his character] Chuck to be fat!”
Jesse Metcalfe (#28)
  • Former "Desperate Housewives" hunk Jesse Metcalfe is covering up his washboard abs these days and a bit of an apparent belly hanging over his jeans may be the reason why. Metcalfe played a teenage gardener on the ABC drama whose chiseled good looks tempted Eva Longoria's housewife character into an affair. Since Metcalfe left the show, he's shown off his abs in "John Tucker Must Die," above l., but a trip to rehab in 2007 has received more buzz than his acting career.

    Metcalfe was recently seen shooting scenes for a return to "Desperate," and it looks like he may be bringing a bit more weight to his character this time around.
Seth Rogen (#29)
  • What a difference a year makes! Actor Seth Rogen showed off his slimmed-down physique at the recent 'Monsters vs Aliens' premiere, above r., in Sydney, Australia. The "Knocked Up" star looks noticeably thinner than even last fall, when his dramatic weight loss first hit headlines. The actor said at the time that he was dropping pounds for an upcoming role in "The Green Hornet," which begins shooting next month. But Rogen insists it's just for his role. He told Us Magazine last October, "I personally do not care how I look or physically feel."
Chris Tucker (#31)
  • Even action stars are scrutinized under the paparazzi lens close-up. Comedian Chris Tucker's recently filled-out figure on the red carpet sent the blogs ablaze, a decade after he showed off a slender physique in 'Rush Hour.'
Joaquin Phoenix (#34)
  • Has Joaquin Phoenix crossed the line?

    After an Oscar-nominated performance as Johnny Cash in the 2007, Phoenix appears to be walking a thinner line. The talented actor's disheveled look is just part of a 'traumatic year,' a friend told the Daily Mail online, which recently got even more bizarre with the news of a (faux) rap career.
Regarding the female celeb on their list at #47 (her name is Shaye Smith) (view photos), the author had this to say about her famous husband, movie actor Pierce Brosnan:
  • Brosnan, for his part, says he adores her figure. And in the bikini photos, taken in Hawaii in January 2008, Brosnan is sporting a few extra pounds himself. Looks like what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Vince Vaughn (#56)
  • It starts to catch up to some men in their twenties - some get a reprieve until their thirties. All of a sudden that teenage boy metabolism is gone with no warning, and presto - you eat a lot, you get lovehandles. Vince Vaughn comes off as the kind of guy's guy who'd rather wear a skirt that spend time worrying about something vain and girly like his weight. But the body he had in 'Swingers' is then most certainly a thing of the distant past, as a Esquire magazine profile in Nov. 2008 pointed out almost as single-mindedly as Tina Fey's Vanity Fair portrait pinned her success on her downsizing, referring to him as 'puffy.' Better his face than his ego.
Matthew Perry (#58)
  • As one of the five 'Friends,' Mathew Perry's weight was on full display for 10 TV seasons, in all its fluctuating glory. He later attributed the ups and downs to his addictions to alcohol and Vicodin. 'With the drinking. I got very thin, deathly thin. . . . I got very thin on this pain medication I was taking, Vicodin,' he told Larry King in 2002, adding ' . . . you would rather take that drug than eat.' In Perry's case, a fuller face and heavier frame may be signs of health and well-being, rather than the opposite.
Boy George (#59)
  • Whatever his crimes, it's hard not to pity '80s pop star Boy George, now pudgy and forlorn in a prison cell. The 47-year-old, who was convicted in 2008 of imprisoning a male prostitute in his apartment and whose real name is George O'Dowd, is serving time in Pentonville prison in North London. He hit rock bottom after years of addiction; he was in a drug-induced rage when he chained his victim to a wall. His hit songs, including 'Do You Really Want to Hurt Me?' are still instantly recognizable pieces of pop culture. For this fallen '80s icon, his weight is probably the last thing weighing on him now.

This slide show at ABC news is critical of William Shatner's physical appearance.

Ho, Ho--That's not Santa!

They have a photo of William Shatner with a big belly (he's on the beach wearing swim trunks) and their caption reads:
  • No, Santa hasn't taken time off to hit the beach before his big night. This little round belly belongs to actor William Shatner, 78. The star, best known as "Star Trek" legend Captain Kirk, and more recently as Denny Crane from "Boston Legal," was vacationing in Hawaii with his wife, Elizabeth Martin, Dec. 19, 2009. (Splash News)

Series of news stories about Butler's chubby physique and flabby tummy:

Gerard Butler's Belly Will Be the End to Hollywood's Beauty Double Standard
  • Paparazzi pictures of 300 stud Gerard Butler looking all fat in Barbados have everyone in a tizzy.

    Finally it seems male celebrities will be held to the same impossible body standards as their female counterparts.
    Thank G*d.

    For so many years Hollywood's leading men, even of the leading and romantic varieties, have been allowed to fall into a state of disrepair after first seducing fans with their svelte physiques.

    Just look at Russell Crowe, Luke Wilson, and Vince Vaughn. This was acceptable behavior, to get all big and bloated and still play men who women fawn all over in the movies. It seems like Fatty Butler is putting this to rest.

    "From Spartan to softie: Gerard Butler packs on the holiday pounds and shows off his new beach body," reads the headline in the New York Daily News.

    "Gerard Butler packs some paunch on his Barbados holiday as his Spartan muscles become a distant memory," says the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

    Celebitchy cuts right to the chase with, "Gerard Butler shows off his gut & moobs in Barbados."

    These are the types of headlines usually reserved for female celebs like the Olsen twins, who are a constant source of speculation for being either too fat or dangerously thin.

    Jessica Simpson, who got the "Fat Jessica: Still Hot?" treatment when she gained a couple pounds last year.

    Britney Spears is only in the tabs good graces now that she has lost the weight from her Video Music Awards debacle in 2007.

    Butler needs to follow Britney's example (did you ever think anyone would say that ever?) and get back in shape and remind the public that he is a hunk of burning love.

    After all, look at what we fell in love with? His role in 300 was predicated more on his abdominals than it was his acting ability, and that's what we want.

    Sorry, we're not going to lobby for more lax standards for celebrities. If they want to be famous, they have to pay the price by being famously fit.

    After all, if we want to look at people carrying a bit of fat around the midsection we'll start following politics. Other than starring in movies and TV shows and making albums, stars have nothing else to do but go to the gym and eat right.

    They also have money and the access to afford the best trainers, nutritionist, yoga instructors, or surgery, if it really comes to that.

    And part of their job description is to be more beautiful than the fatties that we see every Saturday at the mall buying bigger sweatpants.

    No matter what you might say about Madonna's scary arms, she managed to keep a stellar body into her 50s. Same with Jamie Lee Curtis, Demi Moore (not quite fifty), and even Sally Boniva Field!

    These women know that maintaining a career as an actress means being held up to nearly impossible standards, and it's finally time for the men to join in.

    Hear that, Val Kilmer? Better get to the gym, Alec Baldwin. Robert Downey Jr and Brad Pitt are still rocking killer bodies well into their prime, and that is going to be the standard for the future. That means Zac Efron will never eat another piece of chocolate cake in his life, but such is the price of fame.

    The Star cover above, while predominantly concerned with women, also includes some men, which shows that they are starting to get the heat for looking good in public as well.

    Let's hope that Gerard is the final nail in that coffin. We're just sick of seeing man boobs with the men behind them getting a free pass from public ridicule.
Gerard Butler Is Sparse On The Muscles
    [snip photo]Looks like ©hunky Gerard Butler dipped a little too much in egg nog over the holidays! If you recall, it wasn't too long ago when he ripped onto the scene as the hunky Spartan in 300 which caused millions of women to swoon. But, like the rest of us, Butler has a food weakness and has packed on the pounds. We snapped him vacationing in Barbados with a paunch and moobs. But, if you look closely to the pics (like we have) you can see the faint traces of his former six pack. We're confident though that Gerard will be back in fighting form soon enough. [/li]
Gerard Butler Shows Off Barbados Beach Belly

Gerard Butler packs some paunch on his Barbados holiday as his Spartan muscles become a distant memory
  • Only three years ago he was the hunky Spartan whose rippling torso caused an excitable frenzy among millions of women.

    But Gerard Butler appears to have succumbed to the calorific excesses of the Christmas period and alarmingly piled on the pounds.

    View Butler out of shape Photo

    Butler, 40, was snapped on the beach in Barbados yesterday enjoying a warm and sunny start to the New Year after spending the Christmas period skiing in Aspen and a cold New Year's Eve in New York.

    But long gone is the taut and toned abdomen he showed off with pride in the film 300, and in its place is a flabby big belly that hung over his swimming shorts.

    In a pair of loud pink patterned shorts, he wandered down to the ocean's edge with a female friend for a dip and there was no denying the paunch that hung over the top of his trunks.

    It was certainly a far cry from his role as muscular Spartan King Leonidas in 300, the film adaptation of the graphic novel, in which Gerard's Leonidas go to war against the Persians.

    But the only battle Gerard will soon have on his hands will be one with the treadmill.

    The actor will surely be ordered to get back in shape ahead of international promotional work for his upcoming films.

    However, for now he's letting it all hang out - quite literally - on the Caribbean island with some friends, as he spent his first day of his holiday relaxing on the beach.

    But he seemed a little embarrassed to be caught by the paparazzi as he made his way back to his resort and rubbed himself dry.

Males also feel pressure to stay skinny, and they get hounded for extra weight, it's not just the females:

Federline: 'K-Fat' nickname was a wake-up call

Kevin Federline: Being Called 'K-Fat' Made Me Lose Weight

Kevin Federline: Depression Led to Overeating

Kevin Federline: 'I was way, way overweight'

Kevin Federline: I Weighed "Over 240" Lbs!
  • Kevin Federline says it was hard seeing flabby photos of himself, especially the much-published shot of him playing golf last July in California.

    "When I saw this picture, I did not think that I was that big," he tells Entertainment Tonight. "I thought it was Photoshopped, you know? And then I realized that I was just letting myself go."

    Adds the dancer-rapper, 31: "I looked pregnant. When I see pictures [of me] like that and people are calling me K- Fat, I had to do something about it. At my biggest, I was over 240."

    He says he packed on all the pounds due to personal stresses, including a 2006 divorce from Britney Spears. "I went through a lot of things," he says. "I definitely say that those things contributed to me gaining weight for sure."

    He says his children were one of the main reasons he signed on for VH1's Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp, which premieres Monday. He says he couldn't keep up with them during play dates. Adds the rapper, "I could barely make it up the hill on the side of my house."

    Though he can't reveal how much weight he has lost, he says he is pleased with his new shape.

Spanx for Men: Spanx Men's Line Now Available for Pre-Orders

Spanx For Men Coming Soon
  • Men, stop sucking it in!

    It's hard to find a woman who isn't totally in love with Spanx. Even the super skinny ladies need to hold it all together when wearing an uber-tight dress. But nobody ever thinks about how the men feel in their clothing. Until now. Spanx for men will soon be available!

    Would your guy wear Spanx? You have to admit, he has a bit of a beer belly. Or maybe his undershirt just always looks rumbled and bulky under his nice button-down shirt. There's absolutely no need to be ashamed- Spanx for men are here to help!

    According to the Spanx company, the undershirts will "comfortably firm the chest, flatten the stomach, improve posture and eliminate bulk under clothes." They look like your typical men's undershirt, but are cotton compression, making them super functional.

    Apanx founder Sara Blakely says she developed Spanx because the men in her life have been asking for a shirt that will help eliminate the appearance of love handles. She says, "Men's undershirts have been underperforming for as long as they've been around, with stretched-out necks and bulky cuts that do nothing for the male physique." It's so true!

    Spanx for men will be officially launching in Nordstrom's on March 15, but you can already pre-order on the Spanx website. The undershirts come in three styles: tank for $55, crew-neck for $58 and V-neck for $58 in black or white. Totally worth the price if you can convince your guy to wear them. Hey, at least they're not panty-hose. I don't see why a guy wouldn't want an undershirt that makes him look a little sleeker!
