Sam Worthington as a modern character: still hot, or do you miss the loin cloth?


Sam Worthington is one of CB’s crushes. I hesitate to call Sam one of her “forever dongs” just because I think Matt Damon’s dong is The One. But CB definitely has a problem, and that problem is thinking Sam Worthington is some kind of hot piece of man meat. Should I make fun of her for this crush? Gently tease her, perhaps? I wish I could, but girls who get turned on by Gerard Butler’s moobs ’n mullet have no right to cast aspersions on ANYONE (“People who worship at the altar of Butler dong shouldn’t throw stones.”) Plus, there are a couple of things about Sam that I actually think are okay.

Take these photos are of Sam filming his new film, Man on a Ledge. Shockingly, Sam does not have to wear a loincloth, carry a sword, or be dependent on CGI for this role. He’s playing a normal guy, wearing normal, modern clothes. And it’s not bad, is it? He actually looks rather nice and attractive… accessible, even. In these photos, you can’t even tell how short he is. And I’ll give Sam credit – he has that movie star ability, where his face really changes in different lights and different angles. Like Blanchett, or Meryl Streep. In one angle, he’s a normal guy. In another angle, with a different light, he’s gorgeous. In yet another light, he looks like a Neanderthal.

In case anyone is interested in the plot of Man on a Ledge, Cinema Blend summarizes:

Worthington stars in the film as a cop threatening to take his own life, with Anthony Mackie as his partner, Jamie Bell as his bank robber brother executing a heist across the street, Elizabeth Banks as the psychologist trying to talk him down, Ed Burns as the rival hostage negotiator challenging her, and recently added Ed Harris as a businessman with some kind of role in Worthington’s suicide attempt and Titus Welliver as the detective in charge of the crime scene.

Hot damn, that’s an interesting cast! Anthony Mackie, Ed Burns, Ed Harris and Jamie Bell! Elizabeth Banks is… meh. Just in dramatic roles, I do like her when she does comedy. I’m getting an Inside Man vibe from the plot, like there are a lot of moving pieces to the plot, and like it could be an interesting action/drama. We’ll see.

    he doesn’t do if for me either way…

  2. neelyo says:

    I always thought he was pretty ordinary looking and wearing contemporary clothes just emphasizes that.

  3. roguesiren says:

    Nothing like a guy who looks like a real man. I’d worship at that church any day (twice on Sundays).

  4. K says:

    It may just be my hormones talking, but I *love* a rough looking man. Rough features, especially. Like the bones were carved from granite. I so agree with CB on this one.

  5. PrettyTarheel says:

    His jawline is a little weak for me, but he’s sexy because he’s NOT a pretty boy with a delicate face.

  6. ruru says:

    He is a massive yobbo

  7. roguesiren says:

    @#6: I know I’m from the time the earth was cooling, but I’m curious. What’s a yobbo?

  8. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    I’d hit it, spank it too!

  9. Anne de Vries says:

    I like that he’s fairly ordinary looking – much more accessible

  10. Stronzilla says:

    He was great in the last Terminator film with Christian Bale.

  11. Celebitchy says:

    It’s because he’s Australian! His accent kills me. Plus he’s so damn cute. Yes he seems rough but that’s part of his appeal. I am so going to rip on Gerard Butler the next chance I get. 😉

  12. Laura says:

    Oh look, it’s Sam Borington. *yawn* Time to go back to bed.

    Dude has the charisma of a cardboard box.

  13. Jess says:

    I like him with a little less hair. Still a yummy piece of man-meat!

  14. ruru says:

    roguesiren- sorry for the confuson, ‘yobbo’ isn’t a term known outside of Australia, but it’s the best word to describe Sam Worthington! A yobbo is our version of a redneck/meathead. You can tell by the accent- and yes, we have different ones.

  15. Bunny says:

    He is cute, but he seems kind of boring.

  16. aenflex says:

    I love him

  17. DelBocaVista says:

    So Freaking Hot!

  18. roguesiren says:

    @14: Thanks for the edification, mate! You learn something new every day. Well, yobbo or not, he does it for me. Have a soft spot for the Aussies.

  19. Deniz says:

    I can’t wait to see this! It’s actually being filmed next to my job. I hope I can peek a glance at him. He’s pretty sexy I must say.

  20. dj says:

    I like him. He’s manly man. But I have to agree I don’t really like him with so much hair either. Weird, huh?

  21. LT says:

    Who is this guy again?

    Can’t STAND Elizabeth Banks. Blech.

  22. lala in nYc says:

    H-O-T! I’m with CB on this one.

    not used to the longer hair but still like : )

    here are photos of Sam being doused with water. mmmmmm

  23. bereal says:

    I wonder if he has to wear high heels like Tom Cruise?

  24. VV says:

    Love him. He’s a great actor and I love his rough look, the stubble and something about his eyes. They are very expressive which caught me off guard when I first watched him in Terminator Salvation. I mean it’s Terminator, not Oscar worthy material at all, and yet he gave a certain depth to that character.

    I just love watching the guy and not in a total lusting sense either. Ordinary he might be to some but he draws you in, somehow…

  25. Isa says:

    Liked him better as an Avatar.

  26. Anoni Mus says:

    Don’t care about the hair at all, but the man does rock the stubble like it’s nobody’s business. I’m veering toward a thumbs up.

  27. Rose says:

    Worthington is blaa to me. I wouldn’t give him a second glance on the street. Butler on the other hand is just my ideal man.

  28. Anj says:

    He is so ORDINARY looking that he is almost Invisible.
