Eli Roth shows off 21-year-old GF Peaches Geldof “like a trophy”


Back in the post-Oscar coverage, we mentioned that Inglourious Basterds star (and Hostel writer-director) Eli Roth was now dating British “socialite” Peaches Geldof. Beyond the age difference (Roth is 37 years old, Peaches turned 21 less than two weeks ago), there is a very large gap in actual careers and… let’s call it “worthiness”. Eli is pretty established as a writer/director, and now actor. He’s got famous friends like Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt. He’s pretty hot, in a quirky/sexy nice-Jewish-boy way.

Now, Peaches Geldof is not really much of anything. Her father is Bob Geldof, the dude who organized Live Aid, and is generally in competition with Bono for the most self-righteous wanker out there. Peaches doesn’t have a career beyond “sometimes model” and “sometimes writer” and “celebutante”. She’s a professional party girl, basically, who sometimes slums it with paying gigs to give herself the whiff of legitimacy. She’s Lindsay Lohan without the child stardom. Ugh.

Well, anyway, it’s looking less and less like Eli and Peaches were just some random one-night fling. They’ve been spotted everywhere since the Oscars, and now we’re getting tabloid reports claiming nonsense like “Peaches wants to make this relationship last.” Shut up, Peaches!

Eli Roth and London party girl Peaches Geldof have been the talk of Hollywood lately!

The duo kissed and cuddled throughout the Vanity Fair Oscars bash in LA, and the next day Eli, 37, and 21-year-old Peaches, daughter of British music legend Bob Geldof, were spotted smooching at a Sunset Blvd. traffic light.

“Peaches has always dated rocker types before,” says an insider. “Eli is her first kind of normal guy. She says she wants it to last.”

But 17-years-old Eli may not be taking the romance quite as seriously, says another source.

“He shows Peaches off like she’s a trophy. I think Eli’s just thrilled to have such a cute, young girlfriend!”

[From Star Magazine, print edition, March 29, 2010]

Young, definitely. Cute? No comment. I actually thought Peaches was unattractive until this batch of photos – now that I‘m seeing her from different angles, I don‘t think she‘s unattractive. She’s working a sort of plain/pretty vibe. But she looks so much like her father, it’s a little spooky. But that’s enough bashing of this girl. Though she’s already a divorcee, I’m going to lay the blame for this dating fiasco right on Eli’s shoulders. What the hell are you thinking, dude? And what’s with all of these reports that you like really young girls, like, inappropriately young? You’re 37 years old. Grow up enough that you’re not picking up chicks out of high school. We have a name for those dudes. We call them Jeremy Piven.

    She is gross, now he is gross by association.

    Aren’t leopard prints out? Or at least supposed to be used in small accent areas? That dress is FUG!

  2. Jack says:

    she just wants fame… obviously.
    eli, get a real woman

  3. mslewis says:

    Well, they are sort of an odd couple. From interviews I’ve read, Roth seems kind of intelligent and Peachy is totally dumb, so I’m guessing they aren’t discussing Great Books of the World during their non-party times. Maybe Roth just wants to continue the publicity he got from doing a movie with Brad Pitt. I don’t know. My respect for Eli Roth has been greatly diminished.

  4. Kimberly says:

    I guess I’m out of contention … I’m 23 .

  5. Rose says:

    She’s only 21, what is she supposed to have done with her life? And it galls me to defend Peaches bloomin’ Geldof.

  6. Anon says:

    In the name of Xenu, I just hope that Peaches the new cult member, er..Scientologist doesn’t drag Eli into the cult with her. The cult can have Peaches but they need to keep their criminal mitts off of Eli!

  7. Roma says:

    Dear gawd. When I thought Eli was hitting and quitting it, I was kinda okay with him hooking up with Peaches. But dating her? She is a disaster and a mess with some party drug issues. Not you too Eli? Did you just want to find someone you could have crazy Ambien sex with?

  8. Celebitchy says:

    @Anon – Peaches is into Scientology? When did that happen! Post a link please. I didn’t think she could get any more idiotic, but it’s obviously possible. WTF is wrong with Eli Roth?

  9. gloaming says:

    She talked about Scientology in an interview on UK tv last year-:


    But I think this link provides a more intuitive look into her psyche.


  10. Kaiser says:

    Oh, I found it CB! Peaches told the Daily Mail that she’s been reading L. Ron Hubbard: “I’ve been one for a while now,’ she admits. ‘It’s like, I was confused about what path to go through and I feel like I needed a spiritual path. ‘I felt I was lacking something when I didn’t have a faith. In the end, all it’s about is making yourself a better person.


  11. gobo says:

    Eugh. God, I hate to admit this but Bob Geldoff isn’t British (as claimed by Star magazine). Nope. He, like Bono, is Irish. We hang our heads in embarrassment.

  12. e. says:

    her face is the shape of a canned ham. that is not cute.

  13. michellllle says:

    With or w/o her he’s a total loser & so fug.

  14. Celebitchy says:

    Thanks Gloaming and Kaiser! I hope Eli dumps this chick in about a week. She is so dumb and if Eli gets involved in Scientology he is dead to me.

  15. Kittypants says:

    I find this union so mindboggling, I’m actually a bit embarrassed for him. Here in the UK Peaches is seen as a complete joke, something he may or may not be aware of. But yeah, she’s in no way worth ‘parading’. Blech.

  16. Hannah says:

    I loved this guy. I’ll still watch his films – he’s very talented. But I have lost some respect for him. I even stopped following him on twitter.

    She. Is. A. Joke.

    But like Kittypants says – maybe he doesn’t realise. He may as well be dating Paris.

  17. GatsbyGal says:

    He wrote and directed Hostel. That enough should turn off every women in existence. There’s something very wrong with him, like deep inside. I watched the preview for that film and I had problems sleeping that night.

  18. Exiled says:

    Her posture (or lack there of) rivals Kristen Stewart.

  19. Rachum says:

    Can you say BEARD!

  20. sasha says:

    Trophy girlfriend? To quote Frank Barone –
    “What contest in hell did I win?”

    And you hear that whooshing sound? That’s Eli’s hard-won credibility going right out the window.

  21. Cor says:

    See this seems like a match to me, but I’ve always hated Eli, I think his movies are gross

  22. girl says:

    This makes me think of those rumors that swirled around the blueberry incident that he was talkin’ dirty to underaged girls.

    It also reminds me of when Nicholas Cage (eww) hooked up with (maybe more, I can’t remember) Lisa Marie Presley. Like he couldn’t meet her father but at least he could be bumping uglies with her. Ewwie.

    I stopped following him on twitter too.

  23. LolaBella says:

    I like Eli Roth, but all I can think to say is:


    Eli being with her just doesn’t make sense to me. He is funny, talented and sexy and hooking up with Peaches just doesn’t compute.

    I hope she doesn’t break his heart.

  24. Ash says:

    I am a hardcore horror fan. I have been ever since I was a young girl growing up in the 80’s. I found Cabin Fever to be enjoyable, Hostel to be insanely overrated and Hostel 2 was just unbearable. So I am really not a huge fan of Eli’s contributions to the genre. However, I respect that he knows the genre very well. And he is crazy hot. I also really enjoyed his performance in “IB.”

    So I cannot possibly understand why someone who is obviously creative and intelligent would pick someone like Peaches to date? Isn’t this the same idiot who twittered about nearly dying in a car accident mere moments after it happened?? I just don’t get this hookup at all. Mira and Quentin made way more sense than this…

  25. Kim says:

    EWWWWW! beard or he is to immature to land someone his own age.

  26. Mairead says:

    “RAT TRAP – he’s been caught in a RAT TRAP”


    Any day I get to paraphrase the Boomtown Rats is a good day 😆

  27. Beth says:

    How is Peaches a trophy? I doubt even in England men are begging to date her. She’s not even known in USA so I don’t see Eli showing her off. Especially in LA where every other man is dating a barely legal woman and who are also better looking.

  28. gg says:

    He has that dum-dum prettyboy look to his face. And we already know what a genius she is …

  29. Mistral says:

    His films are misogynistic bullshit. NOT smart. NOT talented.

    She is a moron to seek spiritual guidance from one of the most morally bankrupt characters of the 20th centure–L. Ron Hubbard. She has really nice skin, though!

  30. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    Scientology? Whoa-oh. Methinks someone needs to read a certain Playboy interview granted by her ‘spiritual leader’s’ son. That cult lunacy cuts no ice with me. If that’s with what he’s consorting, then she may be a ‘trophy’, but she is no prize. I can’t make any personal judgments on his films as I don’t have the constitution for any kind of horror; I’d take a barium enema before watching one of his pieces, sorry kids, just can’t do it.

  31. girl says:

    I think Shar Jackson and Quentin Tarantino made about as much sense as this.

  32. Shay says:

    He looks like a tard in these pictures. She looks embarrased. I wonder who’s getting the pay off in this relationship.

  33. Midlife crisis, for sure.

  34. abby says:

    It’s probably the thing hanging in the middle of the dress (I’m SO fashion knowledgeable :p ), but in the top picture, she looks a little pregnant. She looks normal (not pregnant) in the lower photo, though.

  35. Hepzibah says:

    Let me be clear: I only know Eli Roth from IB, and I’ve never heard of this chick before this article.

    I am ONLY commenting on the age difference remarks that have been made.

    It really isn’t always a big deal. When my husband and I met, he was 35 and I was 18. We’ve been together 24 years and still going strong.

  36. outsider says:

    to be a trophy one must be hot. I really cannot picture ANYONE IN HOLLYWOOD to be jealous of Eli.I guess for Hollywood standards she’s pretty ‘below average’ (bad bady, silly face, geldof eyes, shark mouth). He probably just likes to have a girl that adores him and worships him, because he’s an immature guy who’s costantly trying to live up to Quentin’s success and genious. Of course, drugs and sex-addiction might have helped (not many loving girls are in for both). I really wonder what his shrink father says? I mean: it’s pretty clear to me that she has father issues and he has something wrong, because she’s an immature/stupid 20 years old. They look creepy together.
    Midlife crisis is another option, yes. But usually men buy new cars and get their ear pierced. they don’t date a girl barely out of puberty.

  37. Alice says:

    Nice to see a young girl out with her dad, err I mean boyfriend. LOL!!

  38. reggiebot says:

    I think they are on their way to splitsville! He is getting producer cred again and secretly filming, and reported to be helping RZA with the Kung-Fu flick. I don’t believe Papa Geldolf APPROVES Of them either! Since Papa left, the public pictures have stopped ASAP! Only twitter for her.
