Izzy has no idea whether this is true, but some New Yorkers are claiming that carrying some flab is fab again for men. As the above photo suggsts, Jack Black was apparently onto this years ago.

[New York] men are carrying an extra 10—hell, maybe 15—pounds in the midriff, haven’t even thought about the gym in months, and they are unashamed. Why should they be? The Hollywood box-office draws have stopped looking like the lithe and graceful Orlando Blooms of the world, delicate and emotive and who might possibly weigh less than an average female fan, and instead now look like guys you can recognize as being from the same planet you inhabit, who eat, drink, and smoke what they want, pack on the pounds and still get to regularly bed skinny actresses who can’t remember what carbs taste like. What’s more, the women don’t mind a bit—in fact, some prefer it.

Izzy never knew he was such a trend-setter.


  1. Uh huh – but has anyone noticed that the guys in sitcoms who look like this *still* have the trophy wife? Nothing has changed.

  2. I can’t wait for this “trend” to hit the actresses of Hollywood. I’m holding my breath in anticipation!
