Ethan Hawke no longer hawt

I saw “Before Sunset” on cable a few months ago, and emo Ethan Hawke melted my heart. He was so cute as he blathered on about politics while contemplating leaving his wife and child for a hot little Frenchwoman who stood him up years ago, haunting him ever since. What a difference two years makes.

Leaving Uma didn’t do wonders for his career or looks. Maybe a better hairstyle, a shave and some fashion can restore him back to a shadow of his 2004 self.

Ethan says that he’s grateful that things in his life have slowed down since his split with Uma, but seems to be all too aware of what he’s missing:

Actor ETHAN HAWKE is pleased he is no longer married to an A-list star, because during his relationship with UMA THURMAN he was constantly pursued by the paparazzi. Hawke split from KILL BILL beauty Thurman in July 2004 after six years of marriage. He says, “One of the nice things about no longer being married to a movie star is that it quietens down a lot. “I never meant to complain about the photographers – if the paparazzi are bothering you, it probably means you are having a wonderful life.

Ethan is shown on September 2 at the Venice Film Festival, where he is promoting his film “The Hottest State” based on his novel of the same name. He directs and has a supporting role in the film, a drama about a struggling young actor who is jilted in love. He directed “Chelsea Walls” in 2001, to mixed reviews. Some called it pretentious, self-indulgent and overly ambitious, while other critics lauded its character development and intelligence. I didn’t see it, but I love Linklater’s films and bet “The Hottest State” will be an enjoyable thought-provoking film as long as Hawke keeps it from being too depressing.

    “pretentious, self-indulgent and overly ambitious”–well, that’s exactly how I feel about Ethan. I hated him since “Reality Bites” and always felt he was playing himself in it. Loved the Sunset/Sunrise movies but mainly because of great script and Julie Delpy. Real Ethan is not such a gem, I’m afraid. I was always on Uma’s side, particularly after those awful comments about her being “big” (you know where) after the kids were born. Maybe this is Karma face, after all?

    He looks like an older, sleazier Johnny Drama.

    randi – you are SO right about Johnny Drama

    Excuse me, but when was Ethan Hawke EVER hawt? Anyone who would f@#$ around on his wife and 2 kids with another woman is anything BUT “hawt” in my book!

    Ethan Hawke’s a excellent actor that’s because the people have always fell he’s playing himself so hate him. Besides he got married Uma Thurman what jerk fans don’t forgive. Ethan Hawke’s a romantic man, excellent actor, writer and proved right now that can directed too. So… the people go on hate him. I pity them.

    Ethan Hawke doesn’t pretentious. He’s a genuine man. He says what he thinks and this bother a lot of persons. I love him since Reality Bites and always feel people don’t forgive his marriage with Uma Thurman. Why? If they are in love so much? Why if he’s such good actor. There’re those jerks for Uma but they forgive that Ethan refused movies to be with his kids, all the time. Meanwhile Uma was in set the films doing What she loved, her career. Now she says that want be good mother and give up her career. Why now? Why she didn’t it when they were married? This was all he want. Go on Ethan be happy. Don’t matter with those person that don’t understand your feeling and your lifestyle.
