I’ve been tied up on TIFF business for days so I’ve had to catch up on all the non-TIFF I’ve missed including the new magazines, etc.

Was digging this Justin Timberlake spread in the new Esquire when I first saw it. He looks good. The article itself, about when he went to Comic-Con and dressed up as Ernie and how liberated he felt and eyeroll eyeroll eyeroll is predictably insufferable. The photos though... I do like the photos.

And then Leonardo DiCaprio came along. And took JT to school.

Leo covers the new GQ. And pretty much tells Justin to have a seat, son. After all, Leo brought Clint along with him. Clint Eastwood, of course. Who directed him in the upcoming J Edgar. I LOVE the picture of them together. I LOVE it. And I love the conversation they have, or at least the brief excerpt we get from it online. Or maybe that’s just because it makes me happy when old people curse:

“I was an Eisenhower Republican when I started out at 21, because he promised to get us out of the Korean War. And over the years, I realized there was a Republican philosophy that I liked. And then they lost it. And libertarians had more of it. Because what I really believe is, let's spend a little more time leaving everybody alone. These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don't give a f-ck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We're making a big deal out of things we shouldn't be making a deal out of.”

Word UP.

It’s just a magazine comparison but they’ve inadvertently given us a really great comparison here. They all want to be Leo. Pip wants to be Leo. So badly. Pip will never be Leo. Ever.
