Viggo Mortensen, 55, wears jeans at the Berlin Film Festival: would you hit it?


Yay, we so rarely have new photos of Viggo Mortensen. It’s always an event when he shows up somewhere! These are photos of Viggo at the photocall for The Two Faces of January, his new film starring Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac. Neither Kirsten nor Oscar were in Berlin for this though, which is weird because this doesn’t look like a film either should be ashamed of. Oscar Isaac is everywhere these days, just on the verge of becoming a big star, and Kirsten is slowly coming back to Hollywood relevance. That being said, I just watched the trailer and I’ve already figured out the weak link:

Viggo clean-shaven and in period clothes? YES. Oscar Isaac turning in another solid performance? Sure. Kiki as Viggo’s wife-on-the-run? Eh. I guess I don’t really buy Kiki as Viggo’s wife in any possible film though.

As for these photos of Viggo… mm… he’s looking good. As he’s aging, he’s reminding me a bit of Sam Shepard. Right? They both seem like cowboys, more comfortable on a ranch than at a film festival photocall.

PS… Do you realize that Viggo is 5 years older than Johnny Depp? And Viggo manages to still look rather bohemian without all the scarves and rings.



Oh, and here are some pics from the Berlinale premiere. The girl on his arm is Daisy Bevan, his costar. She’s also Joely Richardson’s daughter!

    YES. I would. I love Viggo. Permanent place on my list, mostly down to poetry and languages.

  2. Lilacflowers says:

    Don’t get the red vest, but Viggo is welcome here any time, any day.

      i’m not into older guys, but he seems a decent block. Also, the differnce between him and Depp – he doesnt give a shit. He doesnt “manage to look bohemian”, it’s just a natural effect of not giving a f-k.
      Although, Viggo could look better. Does he have an unhealthy lifestyle?

  3. Maya says:

    He is Danish – it’s in his genes to look cool without actually trying.

  4. spaniard says:

    I love how he always shows off his support for San Lorenzo De Almagro club. No wonder why argentinians adore him.

  5. Josephine says:

    I agree with the rest – despite the questionable fashion, and despite the fact that I loathe his hair like this, he has got it going on. He just oozes sex appeal!!

  6. Ice Maiden says:

    Yes. Yes, I would. Funnily enough, I re-watched ”A History of Violence” yesterday, and was struck by how gorgeous Viggo was. I saw photos of him recently which suggested he might finally be looking his age – not that that’s a crime, but Viggo always seemed forever young – but these photos have happily demonstrated that he is STILL hot.

    Daisy Bevan is lovely – like a brunette version of her mother. Same height, same nose. BTW her father, Tim Bevan, is a well-known producer, so I can’t see Daisy having any trouble making her way in the acting world.

  7. Lark says:

    Definitely. As far as the film, it’s been sitting around for two years and with those names attached—-for it to not be in theaters/have a distributor yet means there is probably something really, really wrong with the film. That’s what Kiki and Oscar are probably staying away. And Kiki is a great actress, but she looks way too young to play opposite Viggo even as a trophy wife type of thing…it’s the baby face thing she has going on.

  8. mia girl says:

    I would hit it in every language he speaks.

  9. ncboudicca says:

    Yessssssss. Of course, he admits to not always placing a priority on showering, so I’d have to run him through a car wash first, but definitely yes.

  10. Gorgonia says:

    Always and forever, Viggo, Viggo, Viggo!!!!!

  11. sqs says:

    All the way to Gondor and back again.

  12. Neffie says:

    Love Viggo. I would hit like he stole something.

  13. Froop says:

    There’s something about him… YES.

  14. Ann says:

    10/15 years ago, yes. Now, nooooooooooo.

  15. TG says:

    I would hit it and never stop. He is on my forever list as well. One of the few Hollywood guys who seems like a real man. Like he belongs out west somewhere 150 years ago or something.

  16. Jenns says:

    Love Viggo. He gave one of the best celeb interviews to Vanity Fair.

  17. Luna says:

    ARAGORN FOREVER!!!!!!!!! My god loved him to bits in LOTR!!! Especially when he just AHHHHHHHHHHH and ran in to kill all those bloody Orcs!!! What a MAN!

  18. Deanne says:

    Viggo never fails to impress. The Sam Shepard comparison is good too. Love them both.

  19. Jen says:

    Wow, that girl looks EXACTLY like Joely.

  20. M.A.F. says:

    Every day at every hour. Yes.

    Cute dress but I hate the shoes on his co-star.

  21. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Oh yes, forever and always, particularly in his “A Walk on the Moon” Blouse Man days. Take me to the back of the bus Viggo! I prefer his hair longer and a bit of scruff, LOTR style. The limp curtain hair isn’t really doing it for me. This makes me miss Hot Guy Fridays, why did they have to end?….sigh.

    Joely’s daughter is so pretty, she looks like both Joely and Vanessa somehow – those Richardson genes are strong. I am not nuts about her dress/pants combo though.

  22. Mandy says:

    Yes. Over and over again. He is so freakin’ HOT.

  23. serena says:

    I would hit it, always and everywhere.

  24. seVen says:

    Honestly…. I’d do things to him that would make a hooker blush. Good Lawd have mercy!

  25. dcypher1 says:

    Even if he was a hundred I’d hit it still lol.

  26. HadleyB says:

    He looks so much better now that he’s gained some weight back. I hope he doesn’t do any more movies like The Road? He gets so into it and at his age he can’t bounce back as easily. He was looking pretty bad a year or so ago.

    Christian Bale take note — it’s showing up in his face too… all the dramatic weight loss / gains in so many movies.

  27. j.eyre says:

    Absolutely yes – and I would be wearing those shoes Daisy has on whilst I did.

  28. daisyfly says:

    Give me a Y. Give me an E. Give me a S. What’s that spell?


  29. Mom2two says:

    Yes 100 times over! I adore Viggo. Whatta man, as Salt-n-Pepa would say…

  30. Kristen says:

    Yes i would!!! King Elessar forever!

  31. MacScore says:

    Thank you, Kaiser, thank you! Made my day!

  32. Penelope says:

    Yes, please.

    And I wish we could see his butt in those jeans. That would determine whether the jeans are a Do or a Don’t! :)

  33. Bria says:

    The Regrave/Richardson family is filled with gorgeous women. I would love to spend a day with Vanessa Redgrave and watch “Julia” with her

  34. PerfectDate says:

    Well apparently I have found my people. I had no idea there was so much Viggo-Love here on Celebitchy. First saw him as Aragorn in LoTR. Have bought things from Perceval Press. He is just the whole package. I wouldn’t know what to do if I heard an unflattering story about him. From what I have read and seen in interviews, he seems grounded and genuine. I enjoy watching him in movies the most though–he is so talented.

  35. GeeMoney says:

    Yep… I would TOTALLY hit it. The man may be 20 years older than me, but damn. I’d be all over that!

  36. cubfan34 says:

    I have never found him attractive and he has an ugly speaking voice.

  37. bagladey says:

    I don’t care what Viggo wears – I WOULD HIT IT!

  38. pru says:

    Forever yes. And he always looks so masculine, like there is little to no manscaping going on.

  39. Twez says:

    I would hit it like the angry fist of god.

  40. MSTHANG says:

    Oh yes, I would most definitely hit that!
