Jonny Lee Miller looks hot, wins Olivier Award, doesn’t discuss his ex-wife

These are some photos from last night’s Olivier Awards in London – they’re like the UK version of the Tony Awards, for British theatre productions and such, although the whole affair seems much more low-key and sedate as opposed to the Tony Awards. I’m leading with Jonny Lee Miller, one of my favorites, because he won Best Actor last night for Danny Boyle’s production of Frankenstein. Jonny and Benedict Cumberbatch shared the roles of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster, trading the roles night after night – much like Philip Seymour Hoffman and John C. Reilly did a decade ago with True West on Broadway. So, Jonny and Benedict shared the award, but the Cumberbatch was not there to dazzle us with his bizarre beauty. But Jesus Christ, this is the best Jonny has looked in YEARS. He had his head shaved for a while, and it was doing him no favors, but this look… God, he’s sexy. Do you think he got hair plugs? I think he might have gotten plugs. Here’s Jonny accepting his Olivier (how much do you love David Suchet?):

Very sweet. I don’t like it when actors take out their list of people to thank, but I like that Jonny wanted to thank all of the makeup and lighting people and everyone involved. He seems like a nice guy. And isn’t it interesting, just as an aside, that in the wake of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s engagement, no one is asking if Angelina’s exes are okay with the news? Probably because Angelina still seems to have a good relationship with both Jonny and Billy Bob Thornton? And presumably BBT and JLM have moved on and they wish her well?

Additional photos – James McAvoy and his wife, both looking lovely. Ruth Wilson in that black party dress – she’s allegedly Jude Law’s newest girlfriend, you know. And Hayley Atwell, who is a beautiful girl with a bangin’ body, but that nude dress is doing her no favors.

    Oh I quite like the nude dress, imagine it in emerald green….lovely, she so sexy!

    • Cherry says:

      Strangely enough, I like this nude color, too.. My eye was immediately drawn to her, like ‘who’s THAT?’- in a good way. It’s a bold choice, but she pulls it off.

    • Kristen says:

      I like it also. She looks gorgeous.

    • ema82m says:

      Agreed! I think she looks stunning!

    • ViktoryGin says:

      Co-sign. It’s a pink-based nude which adds a very subtle coloring to her skin and ironically doesn’t wash her out.

  2. jamie says:

    Angelina Jolie is crazy. I’m probably alone on this but I’d take Jonny Lee Miller over Brad Pitt any day of the week, hair or no hair. Also, I LOVE how they gave the award to both JLM and Cumberbatch.

    Hayley Atwell is looking a little Sofia Vergarish, her boobs are out of this world, damn. Too bad about the dress color, don’t think I’ve ever seen a nude dress look complementary on anyone.

    • French says:

      You’re not crazy, I totally agree.

    • Ela says:

      Agreed, I would take jlm over a lot of guys anyway. Love him and not a huge brad pitt fab

    • Ell says:

      Agree, I find Jonny considerably more attractive than BP. And he’s a real actor too, great to see his work recognised.

    • cara says:

      WORD. In his heyday, Jonny was so much hotter than Brad in his heyday. And on top of it, he’s such a smart, decent guy by all accounts. Even how he handles the angelina questions is classy-he always shows respect for what they had but then always mentions his wife now and her as his future. Love him, wish he got more work.

    • LucyOriginal says:

      I always admired JLM and I never understood why AJ divorced him. Well, I guess they were too young when they married.

  3. brin says:

    I think he and Angelina are on good terms as are she and Billy Bob. That’s refreshing!

    • Janet says:

      I agree. I think he and Angie were just too young and emotionally immature when they got married to make it work.

      But it’s nice to see divorced people acting like adults and able to relate amicably toward each other.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    JLM is hawt!
    but McAvoy… lawd! blue eyes! excuse me while i melt into a puddle in a corner.

    • Shay Kay says:

      I will try not to step in you on my way to same corner…..McAvoy over JLM or Pitt.

    • Kara Ann says:

      Well Deb and Shay Kay,
      McAvoy just… it’s gonna be one hell’uva a squishy corner b/c I’m dripping my way to that spot too!!!

      JLM does look really good here too.

  5. Jayna says:

    Are they okay with it? I feel like I am in the insane asylum. They have six children and have lived as essentially husband and wife for seven years. Why would any ex be bothered by them just formalizing that?

  6. foozy says:

    hot hot hot

  7. Alaina says:

    Why oh why oh why does Jolie have to get a mention here? The whole world does not revolve around her. She’s been with Pitt for 6? years, they’re together in every way that matters, this engagagement is nothing but confirmation of what is already known. So why would any of her exes give a flying fart about it or even comment on it?

    Sorry but really, is it too much to ask for a Jolie-free thread?

  8. Hubbahun says:

    Oh JLM and McAvoy – COME. TO. MAMA. Gorgeous boys 😀

  9. M3l says:

    So happy Jonny and Benedict won! They were both amazing in Frankenstein.

  10. mln76 says:

    What a cutie. And yes its true that they are still friends. He even attended the premiere of her movie with his wife. That’s why the press doesn’t bother him about Angie.

    • Toot says:

      Yeah, I was about to post that I remember seeing pics of him and his wife at the after party for ITLOBAH.

  11. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Yet why oh why did JM name his child Buster?

  12. D1 says:

    The gossip press is not asking if Angelina’s exes are okay with the news because neither they nor their readers give a damn about Billy Bob or JLM. No one is buying Star magazine to read about BBT’s or JLM’s feelings.

    If Angelina’s exes included high profile celebs like Depp, Clooney, etc. that the public is actually interested in gossiping about, believe me, we’d be bombarded with headlines about jealous & pining former lovers.

    You know what? Let’s take a moment to mentally thank Jolie for not marrying men whose fame & ability to sell tabloids equals or surpasses Jennifer Aniston’s. Because then instead of the fake love triangle we’ve had forced down our throats over the last few years, the tabloids would have created a love pentagon.

    I’m shuddering just thinking about it.

    • mln76 says:

      eh it has to do with more than that. First off the media is sexist.
      Second off Angie had a huge space of time between her marriages and her relationship with Pitt.
      Aniston made public comments bashing Angie and her kids as have several of her close friends. This egged on the media. On the other hand both of Angie’s exes have made very few comments and in the case of BBT most of what he’s said about Angie and Brad publicly is glowing.

      • D1 says:

        Well, consumers of media are sexist – if women didn’t like to read stories about female celebrities catfighting over a man and take sides, tabloids (and sites like CB) would not constantly print them, as their only goal is to make money.

        I don’t believe tabloid coverage reflects reality – it just reflect what sells & what gets readers excited. I don’t care if BBT had challenged Pitt to a midnight duel on the red carpet at the Oscars – for obvious reasons, the public is not interested in him at all, so tabloids had no incentive to create & sustain a narrative that involved him. His Q score was the deciding factor, not the reality of when & how his relationship with Jolie ended.

        Nor will reality be a factor for the tabloids the next time Jolie is cast opposite a sexy, high profile celebrity people can imagine as a rival to Pitt.

  13. Talie says:

    There are pap shots of Angelina making out with Johnny as early as 2004…he was definitely one of her “lovers” before she moved on to Brad full-time.

  14. grabbyhands says:

    Add me to the list of women who would have picked Jonny Lee Miller over Brad Pitt any day. It seems like he did get plugs because I swear he was pretty much bald (I assumed that was why he shaved his head), but nevertheless, he looks good and if they are, his doctor did a good job. But I’d hit it either way.

  15. Bree says:

    Probably because Johnny is actually respectful towards Angelina & Brad and doesn’t have a PR team working hard to gain the public’s sympathy.

    He didn’t go cry to Vanity Fair and tell them how he screams at the ocean and has pity parties to gain everyone’s sympathy. He did not break down in tears when an interviewer mentions Angelina was pregnant, like Aniston did. He didn’t have his friends bash Angelina & Brad like Aniston does through C.Handler etc.

    He doesn’t name their kids in interviews like Aniston did in GQ (It was creepy when she just brings up Zahara & Knox).

  16. Sugar says:

    Jonny Lee Miller u had me @ hackers:)
    u are a beautiful guy & obviously a class act in life & on stage!

  17. Original Lucy says:

    okay, is it me, or does McAvoy’s wife look like his mom?

  18. Thals says:

    I was at school with Jonnie Miller (well sort of he was at the boys school and I was at the girls and we shared classes et in the 6th form, but you know what I mean).
    Super sweet and very quiet. Got the Lee in his name because his grandad was Bernard lee who was Q in the Bond films.

  19. aud says:

    damn, mcavoy looks happily married 🙁

    i would hit that so hard

  20. blah says:

    Augh JLM is no longer Sick Boy- he’s just some old British actor now!

  21. cara says:

    God, him and angelina were so hot in hackers. He was so beautiful, and he’s still a hottie now.

  22. TG says:

    He is really cute.

  23. Greta says:

    And the award goes to Kaiser!
    For posting Jonny Lee Miller in his acceptance speech. My heart throbs for such a man! A real man! He won my heart in Emma, and now I see he is not just an actor pretending to be a real man. Kudos to Kaiser for giving us more than million dollar celebrities! What a fool AJ was for letting this one get away!

    • Jayna says:

      Like he would want six kids and moving from place to place to place year after year. Few men would find that appealing.

  24. skuddles says:

    Why on earth would he talk about Angie at the ceremony? Is he the male version of Aniston??

  25. Kim says:

    He is handsome but his plugs are bad. Men need to embrace hair loss/baldness because plugs and wigs are hideous!

  26. lani says:

    Jonny and Angelina kept hooking up right up until Brad happened. He was one of her steady lovers once Maddox was adopted, and she said he was the only man she’d ever let around Maddox pre-Brad. And angelina even said she was an idiot for divorcing him, because he was such a good and loyal man and she was just in a dark place personally.

    So it’s nice to see him married and happy and hot still and doing great things still.

  27. d says:

    Glad to hear JLM is a good nice guy…I do wish all the best for him. He’s always been a joy to watch. First saw him (and AJ) in Hackers. Not a movie that stands the test of time necessarily, but it’s still entertaining.
    As to why the whole Triangle That Shall Not Be Named continues to get press? MONEY. It’s always all about the money.

  28. waq says:

    Jonny Lee Miller over Brad any day, anytime. JLM is hot, humble and talented. Angelina is a fool. Nice to see JLM getting recognized for his work.

  29. Samantha says:

    There was a time when I used to find Johnny Lee Miller quite attractive,those days are no longer!

  30. Ta says:

    Frankenstein looks great! Its just a shame that when an exciting production like this comes along its 10x more diffcult to see.

    Give me more Jonny Lee Miller

    He is HOT….

  31. Ta says:

    And Jonny has several cool projects after the success of Frankenstein, Danny Boyle’s stage version of Frankenstein Alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, the CBS of Sherlock Sherlock. Also the actor has roles in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows and Saoirse Ronan Alongside in Byzantium.

  32. ViktoryGin says:

    He’s definitely been “altered” in some fashion. I used to just adore JLM. These days I just sigh in the wake of a now defunct attraction. *Sigh*

    James McAvoy can have it any day of the week. Not that he’d want it. He is one of the few actors that I sense legitimately adores his wife and is above philandering debauchery.
