Viggo Mortensen spends time in Madrid with his girlfriend: would you still hit it?

We haven’t had any new photos of Viggo Mortensen since last September, when he was promoting a film at the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s been too long without some Viggo!! So here are some photos of Viggo and his longtime lover Ariadna Gil in Madrid last Thursday. The photos came in later in the day on Friday, that’s why I’m only getting to them now, but the important thing is that I eventually got to them, right? Because everybody loves some Viggo.

Since we last saw Viggo, he’s gained some unfortunate facial hair. I’m not saying this creeping mustache/Fu Manchu is a dealbreaker, but he does look better with either an all-or-nothing facial hair deal. Either give me a full-on beard or go clean shaven – nothing in between!

Viggo is currently promoting his new film, Everybody Has a Plan, in which he plays twins (he’s playing both characters, obviously) and people are comparing it to David Cronenberg’s Dead Ringers (which I’ve never seen). Viggo has done some interviews recently… let’s see. This one at Vulture has been getting wide play, probably because he gives some quotes about the new pope (they both love the same soccer team), playing Sigmund Freud (he wasn’t sure he could pull it off) and how he saw The Hobbit on opening day. Viggo also did this interesting interview where he discusses how weird it is that Spanish-language films aren’t shown more love by the studios. I hope this movie gets a premiere. I hope he shaves for the premiere. I hope we get more photos of Viggo!

    Sadly, no. He looks as though he ought to be wearing lederhosen.

    • Miss Jupitero says:

      There was a time when I lusted for Viggo. Those days are gone. Not just because of the weird hairy gone to seed look, but also because he seems to have become the type of guy who talks about football constantly. I admit I have a bias there.a little is okay, but when you are almost arrested in an airport because you are shouting about a dropped ball….

  2. Victoria1 says:

    He will be be forever hot as the King dude from LOTR, Aragon? Something with an A. Anyway… Yeah I agree about the facial hair. It looks weird. All or nothing!

    • V4Real says:

      He’s one of my forever dongs; loved him since the movie he did with Goop called A Perfect Murder.

      • bella says:

        how incredibly gorgeous was he in A Perfect Murder with Goop?

        i don’t think i’ve seen anyone before or after who was so gorgeous…except maybe Olivier Martinez in Unfaithful.

      • bella says:

        ^ THIS

      • V4Real says:

        Yes he is almost like the perfect man. The art work that was used in the film A Perfect Murder was actually his own pieces; a lot of people didn’t know that.

      • Belle says:

        ^^^This AGAIN. 🙂 Forever dong since A Perfect Murder… elevated to forever-permanent-ALWAYS dong with holy-hot Aragorn in LOTR. Such status cannot be undone with funky facial hair or bad photos!!

    • Stacey says:

      ^^This^^ And so much more. Love him!

      Actor, poet, musician, photographer, and poliically active. He publishes the works of little-known artists and authors.

      He speaks fluent English, Danish, and Spanish; he is also conversational in French and Italian, and understands Norwegian and Swedish. He also has some knowledge of Catalan.

      • bella says:

        didn’t know about V’s cultured talents or that the artwork in PM was his…
        makes him even lovelier.

        how do you feel about Martinez in Unfaithful…my knees get weak just thinking of his face in that movie…

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        This was why I once adored him. But he has gotten seedy. I dunno….

      • V4Real says:

        Bella loved Martinez in Unfaithful but he soon turned me off b/c of the way he treated Kylie M. But he’s still attractive, I just lost my lust for him.

  3. mom2two says:

    Yes. I don’t like the facial hair (the man has one of the most beautiful jaw lines) on him…but he just gets better looking with age.

  4. Liv says:

    I like her bag!

  5. mia girl says:

    I’d be more than happy to show Viggo some Spanish-language love…

  6. Oompa says:

    Enough with the nay-sayers, he’s still VIGGO MORTENSEN.

  7. Sarcasmo says:

    I will ALWAYS hit it. Viggo is one of my “Forever Dong” dudes.

    End of story.

  8. marie says:

    sadly no, with the facial hair he reminds me of one of my aunt’s exes and now I can’t unsee it..

  9. Andrea says:

    I only want to hit it with Viggo when he’s in character as Aragorn. He does nothing for me out of costume but as Aragorn he is a sexy beast. Weird, I guess.

  10. ParisPucker says:

    anybody know what brand is her purse and where to get it?? It’s exactly what i’ve been looking for! thnx:)

    • Spider says:

      It looks like an older Coach bag (circa late 90’s). I have one like it in black.

      • Jilli says:

        I belive you may be right about that bag. I have a brown Coach bag that looks just like hers from about 10 years ago. The leather aged nicely.

    • Nan says:

      It’s a vintage classic Coach shoulder bag and could be 1970s.

  11. Ann says:

    Nope. He’s getting chubby, too.

    • ClFraser says:

      I’m glad he’s getting a little more meat on his bones. He is gorgeous. He will look good no matter what.

  12. Dizzybenny says:

    the guy is 55!! I’m 10 years younger and I don’t look half as good,with or without the facial hair 😀

  13. Miss M says:

    Yes, I would. As I said before, I saw him up close and he is so handsome and he came off as a really nice and down to Earth person during the Q&A.

    “I hope this movie gets a premiere. I hope he shaves for the premiere. I hope we get more photos of Viggo!”

    Can I also hope that I will be his next girlfriend? hahaha

    • marthe says:

      je suis sa prochaine “fiancée”, désolée miss M

      • Mr.Smurf says:

        “I am his next fiance, sorry Miss….”
        Did I translate correctly? I’m in my second year of french class.

      • Miss M says:

        @Mr. Murff: I think you are correct! I took some French last year, but stopped it. I will go back to classes this Summer.

        @Marthe: nous allons voir à ce sujet …
        Je suis désolé si je ne parlais pas correctement.

    • marthe says:

      miss M your french is correct, my english not so good

  14. Beth says:

    I love him, but I’m not crazy about his movie choices since Lord of the Rings. Maybe it’s Aragorn I love…

  15. GeeMoney says:

    He’s hotter without the facial hair. I keep forgetting that he’s 20 years older than me… I’d hit it any day of the week.

  16. Quinn says:

    I always forget how old he was when he was when he played Strider. There’s nobody hotter than him in that role. These pics make me a little sad, but he’s still a handsome man.

  17. moon says:


  18. elceibeno says:

    Yes I would hit it.

  19. Simmy says:

    He only does it for me as Aragorn. And in these photos he looks like the guy who plays Johnny Crowder on Justified. Only less attractive. So no.

  20. Doofus says:

    For those asking, her bag looks like a very traditional/classic Coach style.

  21. B says:

    I would hit that from every angle and then some. And I’m even willing to overlook the fact that he’s my dad’s age.

  22. serena says:

    Yay for some Viggo!

  23. TG says:

    Viggo is so freaking hot. He is one of the few manly men in Hollywood. His girlfriend isn’t very pretty so there is hope for me yet! Someone else I am getting attracted to more and more is Sir Richard or whatever his name is the guy who played Lady Mary’s fiance and I see him in previews of Game of Thrones. I have nver seen an episode of Game of Thrones but hearing Sir Richard say, “There is a beast in every man, and it stirs when you put a sword in his hand”, is so hot. He has a really good voice. Lady Mary should have settled with him rather than boring Mathew.

    • Troof! says:

      Iain Glen.
      Yes, he is rather yummy…his voice “does things” to me on a Rickmanesque level :P~~~

  24. Chris says:

    Has his “tail” been discussed here yet? Google “A History of Violence staircase sex scene”. It’s very graphic and NSFW. But you get a really good view of his tail–I kid you not. I don’t think I’m down with the tail. No can do.

  25. roxy750 says:

    Wow, lots say no, they would not hit it but on last weeks post of Christian Bale looking like a creepy pervert guy from the 70/80’s everyone dove on that! Not sure what it all means, but it’s funny. I DO like VIGGO and I think his GF is massively lucky! I wish I could say yes to last weeks Bale bc I find him incredibly sexy but ….that was not a good look.

  26. Janet says:

    Would I hit it? Not any more.

    • Christina says:

      Have to agree. Hate to say it, but Viggo is starting to look his age. Not that it’s a crime to look your age, of course, and I’d like him much less if he started tweaking and trying to dress ‘young’, but there’s no doubt that his hotness is fading.

      • Miss Jupitero says:

        Maybe that’s why my biscuit tingles have cooled for him. I agree though if he started tweaking, I would be crestfallen. One tho g I live and respect about him is that he has always seemed completely outside the Hollywood thing.

  27. Madpoe says:

    He’s forever my dong 😉

  28. aligirl says:

    After seeing Viggo in ‘A Walk on the Moon’ with Diane Lane….I would hit it ALL DAY. He is so hot in that movie its just wrong. This is a clip from the movie. I couldn’t find a clip of their waterfall scene….hot.

    • Belle says:

      Oh my…

      I almost forgot about that movie! How could I have done such a thing?? Thanks for the lovely reminder. 😉

    • NEENAZEE says:

      Yep, he’s awesomely sexy in that movie. And in A Perfect Murder. And in GI Jane. Yummmmm…..

      • aligirl says:

        Forgot about A Perfect Murder….he was very hot in that movie as well. BAD person
        ….but hot.

      • ClaireFraser says:

        In A Perfect Murder he is so gorgeous in the subway scene after he takes the money from Michael Douglas and so tall. There is even a scene when he is on the train after he talks to the conductor where he still looks like Aragorn.

  29. lambchops says:

    He can never not be attractive. This man is pure sex appeal.

  30. KellyinSeattle says:

    I hate the mustache – I’ll pass. But, I like the way he gazes lovingly (from Harlequin Romance), at his girlfrine,

  31. Cerulean Skygirl says:

    Sadly, not. My husband resembles him, is 15 years younger, and writes poetry, too. As much as I loved V in his Aragorn years, now I see him as a talented actor, writer and musician, and not so much as someone I’d lust after. I’d still see his films, though.

    I also think it’s wonderful that he and his girlfriend seem so committed and in love, as opposed to many “celebrity” couples who are either together for publicity reasons, or else have rampant infidelity issues.

  32. NEENAZEE says:

    He’s barely recognizable… that’s one way to avoid all the LOTR fanboys!

  33. superfly says:

    like a runaway freight train! yes, yes, YES!

  34. Debbie says:

    Girl in background of fourth picture: “Why can’t that be meeeee?”

    I hear you, Background Girl. I hear you.

  35. c'est la vie says:

    I would it – sans facial hair.

    Oh forget it – I would still hit it like a mack truck.

  36. Ginger says:

    I dig him for his hotness and intelligence. I guess I could overlook weird facial hair. It’s like a trend guys try on but rarely permanent. I’m thrilled he is with a beautiful but also regular gal. What a lucky lady!

  37. Mazunte says:

    ABSOLUTELY. There’s something unique and special about Viggo. That’s just facial hair. Who cares!

  38. Tinker831 says:

    Personally, I think one of his most powerful movie’s was The Road. I’ve never cried so hard in my life. I’m not sure about if I would still hit it right now, but I would LOVE to sit down with him and peck that brain of his over a cup of coffee.

  39. silly you says:

    that shirt sucks, but i’d hit it.

  40. silly you says:

    that shirt sux, but i’d hit it.

  41. libra says:

    yes they do look great together, both smiling, all perfect. the way its supposed to be when hes promoting a film just these days. what a councidense… why do they never get fotografed together when they got nothing to promote? well, they might be a couple, but one that sells themselves. thas clear.

    • libra says:

      do they go through madrid looking like this all the time? i dont think so…

    • Debbie says:

      Don’t be a sore loser, Background Girl.

      • libra says:

        it`s a dirty game. They have to somehow promote themselves and love-photos always does. there are seldom couinsidences with hollywood actors. they know the game and how to play it. matching clothes, arm in arm just when they need promotion.

  42. Mouse says:

    What an adorable couple. They look happy and comfortable.

    Hm, I have to say I like Viggo clean shaven and shaggy haired best, but he’s got a sexy Sam Elliot thing going on here. Rowr!

    • ClFraser says:

      Oh my God Mouse! You mentioned Sam Elliott too. I LOVE Sam and Viggo. I would just die to see them in a western where Sam turns out to be Viggo’s long lost dad or something. Viggo and Sam are my top favorites. They both are so hot no matter how much they age.

  43. Embee says:

    I think it’s sweet the way his arm is looped through hers in some of the photos. Like he isn’t hell bent on being alpha all the time.

  44. TheOriginalVctoria says:

    It’s hard to say really. I heard he was home wrecker. That deflated the lust a bit.

  45. normality says:

    *le sigh* I want hot Viggo back.

  46. ClFraser says:

    I think he has the look that he has right now because he might be getting ready to film that movie The Last Voyage of the Demeter after all. He kind of has the look of someone at sea in the 1800’s. I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that movie. Ariadna is a lucky lady and they look so comfortable together.
