Time For Some Hairy Literature

Hot Fuzz

I can’t remember when was the last time I read a two-page article on the internet without blinking. Jessi Klein at The Daily Beast wrote an interesting piece of hairy literature appropriately titled “The Return of Chest Hair” and it was good because it’s true. Jessi is an avid furfan like me so we totally should start a fan club or something. Wait, I already have one. I also love that we already have posted most of her furry and not so furry references; Jon Hamm*, Steve Guttenberg, Daniel Craig, Clive Owen, Paul Rudd*, Steve Carell, Leonardo DiCaprio, Hugh Jackman, Harrisson Ford and Brad Pitt (circa Thelma & Louise). That being said, I don’t think Jon Hamm’s Dick Whitman picture in “The Gallery of the Hottest Fuzz” did him any justice. Like really. Jessi should use this picture instead! To make up for the lack of skin in this post and also to complement her fab article, I have included links and pictures of her hairy AND not so hairy references after the jump. They’re in no particular order, but as you can see I’m a tad biased.

Head over to The Daily Beast to read the article. Thanks so much Joe and Joe! 🙂

    I think Leo, Brad and Daniel have a combined 5-10 chest hairs. Daniels are all gone, so now sure how he makes the list. Brad and Leo have too few to count.

    Daniel Craig is a natural blond and is on the “only slightly furry” end of the spectrum. Hugh Jackman is on the “pelt” end of the spectrum. I like both. Together. At the same time. Right now. Dammit.

  • Cool post, square! It’s nice to see that Tina Brown’s Daily Beast is embracing your pioneering work.

  • DoverDavid

    Look at that side profile of Hugh in the yellow towel, makes me want to push him down and have at him!

  • WarpedRecord

    I love picking hair from my teeth!

  • jeffy

    Jesus, Brad Pitt looks amazing in that pic. If only he weren’t all dirty. I love his (very light) chest hair.

  • GB13

    God I love Harrison Ford. Especially the 80s version.

    I just looked at the Brad Pitt pic and all I could think was, “Damn, I’m so fucking jealous of that drop of water on trailing down his stomach right now that it’s not even funny.”

    Thought I should share. ;P

  • Mike

    Add Tim McGraw, Robbie Williams, and Barry Watson to that list and it’s perfect. But I will fight you for Paul Rudd. He’s my husband too. 🙂 He was a total Baldwin in “Clueless” and keeps getting cuter.

  • Patrick

    If you’ve got it be proud and flaunt it!

    (Sidenote: Nice background Square)

  • Thanks Patrick. It’s all kinds of tacky but I kinda love it.
