Hugh Jackman looks grizzled at the UK ‘Les Mis’ premiere: would you hit it?

Here are more photos from the Les Miserables premiere in London last night. This post is devoted to the men of Les Mis, although you will see the occasional lady too. Let’s start with Hugh Jackman, shall we? He looks good… but he should have shaved. The five o’clock shadow is making him look OLD. Almost haggard, and Hugh rarely looks haggard (to me at least). There’s been a slow but steady groundswell of support for Hugh recently, have you noticed that? I think this year might bring him his first Oscar nomination. I would like to see that very much, because unlike so many actors, I think Hugh would be so, so honored to be nominated. Like, truly, it would make his life.

He’s not in the movie but Idris Elba was at the premiere, and I think you would all agree that whenever I get new Idris photos, I use them. This man…

I’m not a huge Eddie Redmayne fan, but I’ve heard him talk on and on about how much he wanted to get a part in a musical and how jazzed he was to get this, and it made me kind of like him. He seems kind of film-geeky and sweet now. Usually I find his eerie handsome-ness to be off-putting. Like, sometimes he’s beautiful and sometimes he looks psychotic. I like his velvet Burberry suit! It suits him.

Russell Crowe… I’m sorry, but I would STILL hit that. I know, I know. I can’t explain it. I’ve seen LA Confidential too many times. I’m not a big fan of his buzzcut, but I’m sure it’s for a film. It’ll grow out.

Sacha Baron Cohen is extremely tall, and Isla Fisher is very short. They know this. They’ve been together for a long time, and they know how different their proportions are. So why did she dress up like Sacha’s child-bride? Weird.

    Isla’s dress!!! Horrible!

  2. Christina says:

    ”Would you hit it?”

    Surely that’s a rhetorical question only. Because with Hugh, the answer is, and can only ever be ”God yes! And then some.”

    Or something along those lines.

    BTW I disagree that Hugh should have shaved. I said on one of the Eric Bana threads last week that Hugh and Eric are among the few men who look better with some facial hair. Not a full beard, mind. But both look a bit goofy when completely clean-shaven.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      The beard is brills, I’m so hot for Hugh right now. I was so devastated because I missed the Eric Bana posts and he too is amazing with a bit of scruff. That’s the perfect length, not too fuzzy but enough to scratch you up just a little. Can you tell I’ve day dreamed about this alot?!

    • V4Real says:

      COME ON HE’S AUUSIE, HE’S HOT, HELL YEAH I”LL HIT IT. Sorry for screaming but I got excited because of another hot Aussie and the extra eye candy Idris Elba.

      I love the scruff on Hugh as well as Eric Bana. Aussie men are owning it right now. I totally agree that Hugh and Eric looks hot with the scruff; it’s not too much but just the right amount.

      Also thinks for the photo of Idris. I’ll hit that too.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      The screaming was totally understandable I mean look at what we’ve got, Hugh Jackman AND Idris Elba in one post. If that doesn’t you scream then you are an empty shell! Who is Eddie Redmayne? The name is not familiar, I’ve got to say though, I despise velvet but I’m enjoying that suit.

    • Elle Kaye says:

      Yes, I would, I’ll sing it from the rooftops!! Bald, hairy, clean, or dirty, I love that man and I will until I take my dying breath.

      Whew! I got a little carried away….

    • MW says:

      Who wouldn’t hit it? My Mother would hit it and she is in her 80’s. She is absolutely crazy about Hugh Jackman, and that is not a put down in any way. Young and old love him.

  3. lucy2 says:

    I don’t know, I kind of like the grizzled…oh wait, Idris! Hugh who?

    Isla is so gorgeous, but oh that dress is awful.

    Eddie reminds me of Dennis from It’s Always Sunny.

  4. Calimero says:

    Of course, and my mother also 🙂

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    YES!!!! Like a house on fire, like it was last night before the apocalypse, like…well, you get it.

    And of course, I wouldn’t want Idris to feel left out, so…

    I like the scruff. Some men pull it off, and he’s one of them. (The ones who can’t shouldn’t even try. It just makes them look pathetic.)

    ETA: WTF is up with the bust of Isla’s dress? It looks like frosting melting off her boobs. NOT a good look!

    • julia says:

      Did I understand you correctly,you would hit, wouldn’t you? I wasn’t quite sure if I got that right 🙂
      And I can just agress with all my heart: YES YES YES! All day, every day. Yesterday, today and always – yes!

  6. serena says:

    Russel is a handsome man but he needs to slim down a little bit to make me feel hot again.

    I really really hope Hugh will be nominated, he’s great, I can’t stop loving him since the first x-men.

  7. carrie says:

    the “son natural” fake smile of Anne !
    every one seems to have cold

  8. Xogami says:

    I’m with you on the Oscar thing! I think that the ungrateful ones that insult awards and that say that they don’t care about them should be banned from being nominated and from the ceremony. I bet they would throw a hissy fit!

  9. Ms Kay says:

    Sorry but Idris Elba über handsomeness and charismatic manly presence blinded me from the rest of them…

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Don’t even talk to me about Idris, the man is a dream. Even Mr Kiki accepts defeat on that one.

      • Christina says:

        Yup. Very few men could be in a photograph next to Hugh Jackman and not look a bit sad by comparison.

        Idris is one of those men.

      • Miss Kiki says:

        Am only the one that finds SBC pretty attractive as well? I mean he’s no Hugh/Idris but I totally wouldn’t kick him out of bed.

      • Christina says:

        SBC is definitely handsome but I find something off-putting about him. His ‘humour’ is borderline racist and he has that ‘elite public school boy making fun of the little people’ aura about him.

        So, no.

      • GoodCapon says:

        SBC actually looks pretty good here. I’m not just attracted to him at all though. I guess I’ll always see him as Borat.

    • GoodCapon says:

      I’m currently rewatching The Wire again these past few weeks and he was really, really hot there. M-E-O-W.

    • BooBooLaRue says:


  10. Joanna says:

    re hugh jackman, are you serious? the answer will always be yes. if he didn’t bathe for a week, i’d still hit it, we’d do it in the shower, why ask silly questions?

  11. marie says:

    over, and over, and over again-although I’m not a fan of the long coat.

    you know what, every single one of them but Russell Crowe and Cohen (I just really love him with Fisher)

    I really like Redmayne’s suit, I wanna touch it..

  12. Christina says:

    That’s Russell Crowe in the first pic? Glad you pointed it out as I’d have never recognised it. Let’s just say his Maximus Decimus Meridius days are behind him. Well behind him.

    Eddie Redmayne looks great. THAT’S how you do smart male red carpet dressing. Great suit.

  13. chloe says:

    I think Hugh looks great with a little five o’clock shadow, I think if a man wears a little stubble and he keeps his hair and appearance neat it looks good, which is exactly what Hugh is doing here. Russell I agree with a poster above if he could lose a few more pounds a grow out his hair (I know it’s for a movie right now), Isla’s dress makes her look like she doesn’t have a waste, but Sasha looks good.

  14. Sisi says:

    That blue suit is the most gorgeous color, I’d like a jacket of that please 😀 and forever yes to Idris Elba

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Eddie’s blue velvet suit is mouth-watering. I need something that color, & quickly!

  15. Miss Kiki says:

    I would alternate between Hugh and Idris. They’re both sooo beautiful. Also I totally have a thing for SBC is that weird?

    • j.eyre says:

      May I work into the Hugh Idris rotation? I can handle both of them while you have your dalliance with SBC. yes, I am willing to do that for you…

    • Miss Kiki says:

      We can arrange a time share. Unlike a certain Eve and Mrs Kay, I’m not that selfish, beauty like this has to be shared with like- minded people. I’m fine having SBC to myself, he’s not high on the list but I wouldn’t kick him out of bed.

      RE your acquaintance that boned The Crowe, is this whilst he was married? He got edged off the list a few years ago when he got fat because I’m very shallow with my fake boyfriends. How good did she say it was?

      • j.eyre says:

        Excellent! I shall make a chart up at once.

        Re: Russ – no, YEARS ago… possibly before Meg, I can’t remember now. The best way I can put it is that it sounded like what you are thinking of every time you read an interview with Michael Fassbender – rough but not painful, dirty but not bleach-worthy, dominating but without the need for a safe word – you get the idea. And enduring – LONG into the night.

  16. Green is Good says:

    Is there a lady-like, classy way to say I’m saving this post to my “spank bank”? There’s a whole lot of hot man action here.

    TMI! (Blush)

    • Christina says:

      ”Is there a lady-like, classy way to say I’m saving this post to my “spank bank”?”

      Probably not, but I wouldn’t worry overmuch.

      ‘Lady-like and classy’ has its place, but not on Celebitchy lol! And certainly not where Hugh is concerned!

  17. andy says:

    OMG! I scrolled fast down the last pictures and mistakenly thought SBC/Isla were SMG/Freddie Prinze Jr.

    Surprisingly, I like Redmayne’s velvet suit.

  18. mia girl says:

    Hugh… I would hit it so hard that It would defy the laws of dong-physics, creating a new time space continuum in which a perpetual state of “hitting it” would be formed, exploding into a never ending energy source of “more, more, more”.

    So, um… Yes

  19. GoodCapon says:

    IDRIS ELBA!!! …I’m sorry, Hugh who? 😀

    Eddie really pulls off that suit. Off-topic but I think he looks better with red hair. Has anybody watched The Pillars of the Earth? He was incredibly cute there.

  20. GossipG says:

    I can and would hit that: All day every day…the only ‘vanilla ice cream’ i like,PERIOD!

  21. Mia 4S says:

    In fairness to Hugh, isn’t he still working on Wolverine? That would explain the scruff. In any case the answer is dear God yes!

    Oh Russell; LA Confidential and Gladiator, the days before we “knew” you better. Back then would I have hit it? Anytime, anywhere.

    • Christina says:

      Remember that scene in SATC when one of the girls asks who they all fantasise about, and all four of them say in unison ” Russell Crowe”!

      But that was then. This is now.

      • GoodCapon says:

        I remember the shrieks that came afterwards when they realized they all uttered a single actor’s name. 😀

      • Christina says:

        And in the same scene, they also simultaneously shout out ‘George Clooney!’

        God, it’s making me feel old that I can remember when Clooney and Crowe were fantasy figures. Seems soooooo long ago….look at them now.

      • GoodCapon says:

        I actually went to YouTube to check if someone has uploaded that scene but alas! No such luck 🙁

  22. EscapedConvent says:

    Hugh Jackman is a dreamy dreamboat & that’s all there is to it. I have adored him since Kate & Leopold & will continue to do. Ladies, for best results, watch Kate & Leopold, ignore that annoying little Meg Ryan person, & imagine the lady is you.

  23. Micki says:

    I’ll never hit Russell Crowe but Hugh, oh yes, for both of them.

  24. jinni says:

    Am I the only one that thinks Hugh did something to his eyes? They look kind of tight at the bottom; not bad just pulled a bit.

  25. Ann says:

    Hugh looks great as always. Love him.

    Eddie Redmayne looks great, love the suit on him. Just wish he’d worn black shoes, and it would have been perfection. I’ve been fangirling for him for awhile now, really hope this is his breakout role.

    Russell Crowe – I don’t get it. Totally meh to me.

  26. Dani says:

    I actually kind of love Isla’s dress…

  27. Sloane Wyatt says:

    No, I wouldn’t hit it because I’m female.

    Hugh plays for the other team; however, he’s great looking and has terrific charisma.

    • Christina says:

      Sadly, I suspect you’re right. I also think Hugh is very likely gay. And no, I can’t prove it, but I deffo get those vibes from him, and I’m not one of those people who think every handsome actor is gay.

      But a girl can dream…. can she not?

  28. Rachel says:

    Eddie Redmayne… that suit… the Blue Steel face… that JAW… *wow*.

    I think it’s hilarious that Hugh and Russell are buttoned up in the cold, but the ladies are all “Here I am freezing my ass off, so I can show you my ugly gown!”

    • taxi says:

      +1. “Tess of the D’Urbervilles”, “The Other Boleyn Girl” and “My Week with Marilyn”. He’s done stage work & has an Oliver & a Tony.

  29. KellyinSeattle says:

    I’d hit Hugh,all right, but in the first pic he reminds me of Eddie Cibrian, so that kind of spoils it for me.

  30. Aubra says:

    Hugh and Idris…..YAAAAAS!!!!

  31. RobN says:

    Aside from the good looks, I just really like Hugh. Seems like such a good guy, nice family, nice kids, nice dog, smiles for the camera when he’s walking down the street and seems to realize how lucky he is. I find that all very attractive.

  32. Stubbylove says:

    Good God I would hit that all day long. Hugh has taken over as my favorite Aussie – although Russell’s still got it cuz he’s such a hothead knob. Can’t wait to see this movie.

  33. Michele says:

    Love Jackman, Crowe and Redmayne. All three men are so handsome and talented. Love Anne Hathaway’s white gown. She pulls it off beautifully. Not too keen on what Amanda Seyfried is wearing though and Isla Fisher’s boobs should not be on such obvious display considering she’s not even in the film. She should have toned it down instead of trying to steal spotlight away from the actual actors involved in the film. It’s their night to shine, not hers.

  34. Isla says:

    I totally disagree, Kaiser – Hugh looks good with the scruff, not haggard and old – not even close. He looks pale maybe but even then he looks good.

    Why not mention Crowe’s scruff and comment that he should have shaved as well?

  35. j.eyre says:

    I would hit Hugh so hard not even Wolverine’s mutation would put him back together. Hugh is on the permanent Hit List.

    Eddie – I love that suit, I love that he wore it, I love that he looks good in it – he is being moved onto the Consideration for Hit List as a result.

    Russell Crowe – @Kaiser, I know someone who did hit it; if her account is to be believed, you should never remove him from your Hit List. It was several years ago, one night only, she is happily married now and she still goes a little limp when you mention Russell’s name. Just FYI.

  36. Reece says:

    Oh Isla, you are so much better than that dress. Not so sure about Anne either. Everyone else looks good though.

  37. Grace says:

    Good god, Russell Crowe needs an eye-lift! How can her see with all of that skin hanging over his eyes?

  38. Rant says:

    I’m not sure if I would label his look as “grizzled”. He looks like GROWN man. Nothing wrong with that, in this age of metro-sexuals. You just HAD to post a pic of Idris, as well? Good lord.

  39. Mew says:

    Oh no, he looks good and yes, I wuold definitely hit it, hard, every day and night… mmmm…

  40. Diana says:

    I would hit it alright! I would hit it in a second!

  41. Jennifer says:

    Hugh’s wife annoys me. I can’t get over how unmatched they are.

    Russell still gets to me too.

  42. Ka says:

    I’d hit him big time!!!

  43. Vickie Onderdonk says:

    Both Hugh & Idris without a doubt!
    Russell Crowe not so much
