Squinty Eyes

These folks have employed the squinty eye with great success. I am wondering if I should try it.

I'm going to go with...maybe the squinty eyes are okay to try in your next big movie. ;)

And I'm sorry, but that picture of Ben Affleck? It makes me want to lick him.

I'm just sayin'.

Have you ever seen Tracey Ullman's Renee Zellweger impression. Tracey puts on a blond wig and her best "chronic narcissistic squint" and BAM! impression complete!

Penny said...

Most of these people can squint at me any time (aka,make sweet love to me),but some,like Renee just irritates the crap out of me.She always looks like she had a really sour lemon or something for lunch.

You are so damn funny! I swear I want to meet up with you for coffee everyday after work just so I can laugh and laugh. So forget the squinty eyes. What you REALLY need to employ is this 'scowly face' that a character from one of my seventh grade short stories. It's called, go figure, "Seventh Grade" by . . . oh crap, I'm drawing a blank. But the character claims if he makes this ridiculous scowl all the women will go wild. Ha!

Remember Claire Forlani in Meet Joe Black? Those squinty eyes drove me nuts!

Raina said...

Why does Renee Zellweger always look like she's having a shellfish reaction?

clorivak said...

Oh Renee.... always looking like your sucking on grapefruit

Diane said...

i should have no problem pulling this off right now. my allergies have been killing me and my eyes are all puffy already.

E.K. said...

I kept scrolling down looking for Clint and then there he was in all his squinty glory!

i think i just got the screen wet w/ drool. why ARE squinty people so hot????

gangsta bride said...

some are more successful (neve, clint, josh) than others (renee, mark, heather).

from these, i have gathered a few steps to successful squints:

DONT
- purse your lips with the squint
- have a big forehead
- over furrow your brow

DO
- have messy hair
- relaxed lips
- wear a bad ass hat
- be clint eastwood who will always be cool no matter what he does

fo real

Kellie said...

That last pic is hilarious. Now next time I get drunk I'm going to go around and take squinty eye pictures. What about Zoolander? :)

sexypoet said...

wow, you got some squinty, sexy boytoys on there.. LOVIN Leo!

Kierstin Bridger said...

Perhaps botox hasn't completely taken over Hoolywood!
Are they looking at all the neon white teeth there?
This pensive squint might make me look more chic but frankly, I can't see as well.

Diana said...

i think half of these people squint because they think it looks tough but they have no idea...

ASSHOLE BOYFRIEND said...

Megan Fox is a natural squinty eyes who looks like she's always half asleep. Someone needs to wake up that girl and tell her the pancakes are ready.

Zoƫ said...

you should add the guy from the spiderman movies james franco to that list lol

Chessa! said...

ah, yes...the squinty eye...sometimes sexy, sometimes scary, sometimes sweet...
I am guilty of doing it and catch myself in photos. I also imagine my grandmother saying "don't wrinkle your face..." good for the photo-op but not so much for your crow's feet, I guess:)

Staci said...

mm mm mm some of those squinty eyed men are HOTT!! my hubby is a squinty eyed sweetie....its one of the many things i love about him.

Andy said...

I'm a little skeptical of what you deem "success" if Neve and Jon Hedera are on there.

thereddeer said...

Hmmm some of those people aren't acutally squinting - they just have tiny eyes :D

Emz said...

Oh hotties!! (some of them) haha. but yea, it only works on some people! Plus, you don't want wrinkles too early haha

Awesome Sara said...

james dean is so sexy! my pic should be on this post. i rock the squinty eye.

It's Just Me said...

You had me until Steven Seigal (spelling?) Can't handle that man!

Gem said...

i've always HATED renee zellweger's squint-eyes. to be honest i think the squint-eye look works better for men. which makes me sound sexist... but i'm not!

one little simitopian said...

Like quite a few others here, I find Renee Zellweger excruciatingly ANNOYING.
But some of the guys look cool all squinty. Mike Patton sometimes gets that surly squinty thing happening, and it's so fucking HOT. But that's because he is already too sexy for his own good.
Hmmmmm...methinks that might be the key: sexy people can enhance their sexiness with this expression, but annoying people like Ms. Zellwegger only look more annoying.
Here, I've coined a catchphrase:
"Squinting: the way to a more extreme YOU!"
So....I'm thinking i probably shouldn't do it, as I already look pretty deranged.

Missy said...

A good look to try!

alissa said...

some of them look good. some look like they just need sunglasses :) but it could be a fun one to try

black vanilla rose said...

leo has well and truly mastered the art so why not give it a go!!

Char said...

james and clint are the kings of the squinty eye

clorivak said...

Here's a site you would prob a few giggles from : http://planethiltron.com/

Posh Adornment said...

I, like others think Renee is just ridiculous. Her whole being seems to be squinty and pouty. There's a combination for you!

I, on the other hand, have the squinty eye thing down perfectly, btw...and it's probably just because I am getting old and loosing my edge and can't quite see where I'm going most of the time because I left my glasses somewhere on top of my head. ;-)

Tikimama said...

Oh, Josh Holloway, be still my thumping heart! Poor Renee, she seems like she could be such a sweet girl, but she just seems to irk people. I do agree that it seems to be a look that men pull off much better than women.

BTW, I just gave you a dorky award. You can check it out in all its glory: http://atomicteaparty.blogspot.com/2009/04/my-first-award.html

You are so welcome!

Katie said...

In pictures, I always end up squinting one eye and not the other. REAL attractive! ::sigh::

Savvy Mode SG said...

Milly said...

frances said...

hahaha, I think I'd end up looking like a mole. x

Renee Zellweger always looks like she is sucking on a lemon.
