Oh.  Here's one more shot in case you haven't seen it yet.

Colin Farrell

I usually refrain from adding commentary to my Hot or Not posts, but this time I have to mention something. Do you notice anything strange in these pictures? Anything? Maybe it is just me, but the hands -- I can't stop staring at the hands!  His hands look so awkward to me.

But maybe that is just because I am hyper-sensitive to the weird hand issue. UGH.

In order to graduate from college, I had to take a speech class. I put this stupid class off until my very last semester. I was AWFUL at it. Just terrible. And it REALLY didn't help that the instructor insisted on VIDEO TAPING all of our speeches. We had to take home the videos and watch them. I brought the video of my first speech home, and my little sister and I watched it together. We were in HYSTERICS watching how truly terrible I was at the whole stupid thing. We were laughing so hard we were crying, and we kept watching it over and over again.  In the video you could tell I was so uncomfortable and that I would do ANYTHING to leave the front of the classroom and be able to sit down.

But the worst part of that first speech was probably my hands. They were EVERYWHERE. I was so nervous, and that was oh-so evident in my hands. I was GESTICULATING WILDLY. My hands were all over the place as I talked. During the in-class critique of our first speech, my instructor told me that my hands gestures were so distracting that I looked like a bird that was trying to take flight. That comment made me want to jab her with sharp sticks until it looked like SHE was a bird trying to take flight, but she was right. It was very embarrassing. But what can you do but try and learn from your mistakes.

In my next speech, I kept my hands in my pockets. Apparently that is a no no (and apparently I had never studied politicians or actors or comedians and learned that NOBODY stands up to give a speech and puts their hands in their pockets!!!!!!!!!!  DOY!!!).  So, I was busted for doing a crap job on speech number two. 

Needless to say, I never got the hand thing OR the speech thing right. I just sucked at it, and I am so relieved that I never have to give a speech again.  At least I hope not!*

*Side note: A while back we were having an event at the gallery where I work, and my boss told me I was going to have to give the introductory speech to a giant room full of guests. I told him that I don't do speeches. He said something like, "Well what if I told you to do it OR ELSE?" And I said something like, "Forget it. It is your gallery, you are the one that volunteered to host this event, so it is YOUR speech. Pony up, because I won't do it." Thankfully that shut him up.

So, so, so hot. Every single photo. HOT!

Hannah @ The New Black said...

Aye. Except when he looks like a greaseball.

Lorena said...

I keep looking at his hands and he just puts them in there... all the time.
It is odd.
This dude is hot but for some reason I see him and think his breath stinks, that his laundry is done incorrectly and that he has not showered in ages.

everythingisjustwonderful said...

Definitely NOT. He's alright looking if you like that scruffy, I've-never-grown-up look. Which I don't. And everything I've heard about him makes him sound like a total assface. So no. I'll pass. And thanks for that gratuitous bouncing junk shot. Ha!

And his hands are like...WAY TOO BIG for his body.

And I also hated speech and my professor made me cry in class.

blueviolet said...

I'm glad you stuck with your guns and refused to do the speech. Public speaking SUCKS!

Colin Farrell is hot. I like 'em with the dark eyes and hair like that. :)

...love Maegan said...

lol to the hands ...and "Pony up" to the boss!!!! lol!!!!

uhhhhhh ...he's tinier & dirtier in person than he seems on screen & in photos ...that kinda ruined it for me ...but sometimes he's hot, I suppose.

I am HORRIBLE at speeches. Dry mouth, horror.

Pretty Little World said...

He's definitely hot, but a little lacking in terms of acting ability. But thankfully that's easier to ignore, because he's nice to look at :)

I hate speaking in front of people also. My mom was like, "But you talk in front of your students every day." It's not the same though. My students come to class knowing that I'm the authority. Talking in front of my peers? I get all nervous and freaked out. Hate, hate, hate.

Morgan said...

Totally didn't notice the hands but I can see what you're saying. And I get that most people think he's out.. and he's certainly not bad looking.. but he doesn't do it for me.

freeteyme said...

I used to think he was. For some reason, I lost interest in him (as if! lol) too much of the grunge look - dirty bad boy image for me.

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Not bad but certainly not my type- he seems a bit too hard core for me-
I love talking- my husband not so much- I even did a speech at his grandmothers funeral as a 'from us'- I think his dad really wishes he was better at public speaking...

thisgirlbeck said...

ahhh sooooo HOT! Its so rare to find drunken man whores who actally look good..

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Nope. Not hot. Something about his lips ... they're too small, maybe? And he looks so petulant and pouty all the time. I couldn't be attracted to someone who appears that hard to please.

And I don't do speeches either. In fact, I refused to do one for the final in a college class and failed the stupid course. :(

ticklishfromadistance said...

You kill me.

Caroline said...

Yes Please...and I will take another. :)

OK..I was a Speech MAJOR in college and even went and got a Master's Degree in speech communication after that!!! The hands are critical. I took an entire semester on body movement in speech! Crazy, huh? If you ever need some pointers...let me know, I'm here for you ;)

Martina Rosenberg said...

Not for me. Too much...um... hair someplaces. And I agree, he looks kind of non-showered, ungroomed etc. Yes, he seems to have a hand thing :-) and no, I even do NOT want to meet his father ( as the latter's age should be fitting me more properly. I am not a cougar...) Though I am good at speeches and maybe even "ad hoc" I do not _want_ to hold them. I feel with you !!kind regards from hot and steamy Duisburg, Martina

drollgirl said...

YO BLOGGER. WHY AREN'T MY COMMENTS SHOWING UP?!?!?!?!

fishy said...

Hot in a psychotic scuzzball sorta way.

Kirsty said...

Oh yes. He's so naughty, but the naughtier he is, the more I want him to be naughty with me. Sigh.

adrienzgirl said...

He doesn't do it for me. Not even the accent works for me. He's too little number one and he might have been hot when I was 15 or 16 in that bad boy momma says stay away from kinda way, but as a man? Blech!

sealaura said...

i like that he is a bad boy, I know I am that cheesy but that's how I like 'em! I had to go back and look at the hands, very smooth and now I do think they are a tad odd, hadn't noticed before.

Quirkyloon said...

I don't feel excited or blah about him.

I guess I'm Switzerland: neutral about the Colinator.

hee hee

Phoenix said...

YES FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.

Sorry, calm again. I'm pretty sure that was my hormones typing.

I'm not as big a fan when he's bald or got long greasy hair (showering is sexy, Colin! Do you hear me??) but the rest of the time... Hells Yes.

Love me some dark Irish men.

tulpen said...

Dirty Hot. Looks like kind of an ass hole, he'll get drunk and treat a girl badly, but the sex is so good it's worth it.

Kristin said...

I like your moxie lady! And Colin...I can never decide...

Ellie Grace said...

Colin Farrell is a "mehh" in my book. Not hot, but not ugly. And I didn't even notice his hands, I was too distracted by his eye brows. Do they every leave that squished in position??
And I'm glad I'm not the only awkward speech giver in the world. I was asked to pray in front of the church a few weekends ago and to pray over the pastor. I freaking forgot my pastors name in the middle of the prayer. Awesome. Needless to say, they stopped asking me to pray for them.

Prairie Chicken... said...

he is absolutely perfect in every way and its quite possible that I'm going to roundhouse your ass for implying otherwise.

Alisa said...

Normally, I go for the brunette, handsome, bad boys, but something about him is a turn off. Some of those photos are really Hot, and others really Not!

Missy said...

HOT! Watch Oprah for hand preps!

Ana said...

I just watched him in Crazy Heart and have to say, Hot.

Don't give up on the speeches/presentations. It's a good thing to know how to do. And for what it's worth, they get easier with each one.

Do what you're most afraid to do.

pearls said...

ok, so I thought he was sooo hot, then I sat next to him at a bar and couldn't understand why someone so famous could smells so baaaadddddd... like a rotting shoe. and YES i'm with you on the public speaking... way too shy for that. good for you for standing up!!

bananas. said...

Is that a wild turkey in his pants or is he just happy to see me? And you...and every person with a vagina. The guy is a MAN WHORE! Didn't he fuck lindsey lohan? Nuff said.

Therefore my answer is no. He reeks of STD. No thank you.

anotherfishinthesea said...

ugh, he is so a not for me. he might be my most hated actor. i dont really know why, but he repulses me. ew ew ew.

(and i have commented on a lot of your hot or nots and i think this is my strongest reaction either way. ew.)

vint junky said...

Firstly Colin...i used to think not but i seen him on a talk show recently all tamed and manly and i thought oh hang up a minute... HOT!

Secondly...No way, we've obviously been seperated at birth because public speaking, actually even in a large group of friends (unless i've consumed a half bottle of JD) is my worst fear. Had to do it once, thankfully wasn't video taped and i have happily wiped the memory from my mind...ok i remember abit...even my bottom lip was actually shaking...

J. said...

HOT. HOT, HOT, HOT, HOT.
Add in that smokin' Irish accent, and I'm melting.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Weird hands or not - he's MIIIINE! (another one, yeap, I want to have a whole harem of gorgeous men - dream on, you say? ... oh god, now I'm making up my own dialogues...sad, so sad.)
Public speaking? HORROR! I was once video taped as a student and to my utter embarrassment I kept using the same stupid fill-in phrase over and over again, and I didn't dare to look at ANYONE... Needless to say I NEVER ventured to public speaking again. (and this is a comment wit lots of CAPITAL letters.)

Kristine said...

Only luke-warm for me. His eyebrows are just too expressive for my liking. And public speaking? Never ever ever. I avoided any classes in university that involved any type of public speaking or presentations.When I went on to massage school we had to do oral practicals a lot which always involved me crying and having diarrhea the night before. Nightmare. It was so bad that I had a few of my examiners suggest I consume alcohol before my oral exams.

Fragrant Liar said...

Colin? Sssssssssmokin' HAWT! No doubt about it.

No, the hands don't bother me, nor do his feet, and the other things I can imagine.

Asylum Dolly said...

When he is looking scruffy and unshaven, HOT. I love the scruffy hot thing. However, when he is cleanshaven and doing Blue Steel facials it makes me go BLUUURGH! Also he seems like a bit of an immature douchebag in real life, so i think NOT is my choice. Nice eyes and skin though. He just needs to grow a brain along with the beard, and then he can have me.

I loved your story too :) I hated speeches when i was really young, but then suddenly in my senior years at school i started being good at them for some reason. I didn't mind them at university , but yeah, i know what you mean about the hands! I am a very expressive person, and tend to use my hands a LOT when i talk (i even do it on the phone!), so it is hard for me to control it.
I would HATE to be videotaped doing a speech!!!!! Eeek! It's one thing having people watch you speaking, but another having to watch myself speaking! Even when i hear a recording of my voice, i'm like "Do i really sound like THAT?" I sound really aussie. So unsexy :( Why couldn't i be italian or something??? Sigh. But it is good to be able to laugh at ourselves :D

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Maybe? But he also seems kinda slimey so I'd want to sanitize him a bit.

Aahh the hands. I'm ok with that but I lost a story telling contest for my district because I didn't have enough eye contact with different people. Sigh, so close...

Erin Elizabeth said...

Dirty hot. Like..."let's do it in an alley and i might give you hepatitis but oh boy won't it be fun up until you figure that out" kind of hot.

Wait.

I think I just talked myself out of it.

No. He's hot. He just needs a shower...and anti-biotics. And penicillin. Then we're in business.

Dancing Branflake said...

Hot with awkward hands coming through! Love it!

the spectator said...

Not.

Claire Kiefer said...

First of all, DEFINITELY hot. No question. I was going to vote "definitely hot" before I saw that final picture in the link you so kindly provided . . . but now I'm voting ABSURDLY hot. And wow, looks like he's packing. FOR REAL.

I wanna see your speech tape :)

Iva said...

umm no. STD galore going on with him.

I dont think I ever noticed his hands before LOL...now every time I see a picture of him, all I will look at are his hands LOL

speeches are rough!! oiy. here's to the next one being day after never!

"pony up" LOL hahahhaha. hilarious and so awesome!

Heather Taylor said...

Not hot at all. Ew.

asweetcakes said...

OMG!! Colin Farrell is ALWAYS hot to me! HOT HOT HOT. Can't touch him!

Ashton King said...

I once gave a speech in a contest where the guy who beat me in the previous round lost points for putting one hand in his pocket. That was before he was disqualified for failing to cite his sources. Which meant I had to talk in front of 4,000 people. One of the scariest moments of my life.

Jill said...

Mostly Hot...

I took a Speech class in Design school...only because I was forced to. It was actually a good experience and helped me in my "career". Although the first speech, I'll never forget...my hands were shaking so badly I couldn't hold the paper.

Sam said...

Noooooooooooo! Not sure why but no, no, no! Love your story though! :0)

cerebral e said...

I love that you said that to your boss! You are awesome.

Colin Farrell looks a bit to boy-band for me, even if he is supposedly a bad boy. I wouldn't say no, though.

Laura @ EdenRose said...

Oh I certainly wouldn't kick him out of bed but what I liked most about this post is that underneath it directed me to a pic of him in celebrity schlong!!! LOL xx

love jenny xoxo said...

HOT! Definitely hot..! Except I'm not a big fan of the facial hair.. a little scruff looks good though. And I don't like him with the long greasy hair, but he is overall a hottie :)

Rachael said...

I have never thought of CF as hot, not in the least, UNTIL you pointed out the HANDS lol. I have a thing for big beautiful hands. *sigh*

Diana said...

No, the whole bad boy image gets old really fast.

Did you ever watch that Seinfeld episode with the hands? You totally reminded me of that :)

Krystal said...

way to stick up to your boss man, that is hilarious :) also my favorite picture is the bald one with the army pants which is weird because I like a lot of hair. but he's too typical with all the hair. so i like the relaxed bald look..

Jennifer DeDonato said...

I don't like the long hair and the eyebrows. However, if he knocked on my door I wouldn't slam it shut!

Heff said...

Holy LACK OF TESTOSTERONE on this blog, LOL !


Heff HATES the Colin Ferrell !

Juanette said...

I say HOT except in some of those pics he resembles Mel Gibson who is definitely NOT HOT these days, lol...

Anonymous said...

Hot, only with short hair, and no damn jewellery! Ugh, maybe a necklace or a watch, but not a ton all together.... He just wears too much jewellery for my taste. Never liked a man with jewellery.

todayandeveryday said...

No, no, no. Not at all. In fact, the reaction I get when seeing him is the urge to slap the shit out of him. Weird, right? He just seems like one of those guys that thinks he is all that and really, he is absolutely not~ no how, no way.
Again, Not Hot.

frenchie said...
