“This is what has happened. I’ve been blessed with glutes that have an attractive shape. But I have a trainer, and we’re going through bodybuilding phases, and where everyone kind of caught me was that I’d been preparing for one year in a very high-intensity weight training program that actually focused on legs. So I guess you could argue that the glute-peeping public are now reaping the benefits of all that hard work.”
“I’ve been called that a lot, and who am I to argue with it? Sure, I’m a zaddy.”–Actor Christopher Meloni shares his thoughts on these topics and many more in an Interview Magazine feature.
I learn a new, useless term every day.
For 60, Christopher Meloni is hot. Born April ,2 1961 he just turned 60. How many gay men look this good at 60? And for that matter, how many straight med look this good at that age?. It’s evident he takes care of himself and eats right and it shows.
Slow learners are sad.
Who determines what is useless? Language reflects how humans communicate. New words reflect its evolution for better or worse. Is the term “zaddy” really that problematic when the meaning of words like “truth” and “reality” are up for debate?
New words arrive all of the time!
No kidding. I’m still working on “thirst trap” and “gas lighting.” My parents were adults when all of the 50’s and 60’s slang arrived.
So, what exactly is a “zaddy”? The only thing I can figure is a “hot grandpa.”
Definitions from Oxford Languages
a sexually attractive man, especially an older one who is fashionable or charismatic.
“so many people go for Geoffrey—he’s a zaddy”
Gaslighting? You are just figuring that out? It’s not a new term. It’s been around for decades. It’s the theme of a popular movie. Gaslight is a 1944 American psychological thriller film directed by George Cukor and starring Charles Boyer, Ingrid Bergman, Joseph Cotten, and Angela Lansbury.
@D_Bro, has it really been “around” that long? I kind of skimmed the article and I honestly thought Meloni (who I adore) just jokingly coined it. Oh well. I’m always behind on these things; usually not “decades”.
And “Gaslight” is a great movie. I’ve seen it several times; years ago I and a friend watched it and the 1940 British version as a kind of DVD double feature. Interesting to contrast the two, but definitely preferred the Bergman/Boyer one.
So AWESOME for a straight man to be comfortable in his own skin just being HIMSELF – AND in possession of the GRACE to be confident and appreciative in being admired by his fans (females and males).
Now if only gay men could do the same!
I want him to murder my mussy and pull my hair.
Zaddy? No. Daddy? Yes. Yes, daddy.
I’ve loved him and his peach since Oz. He’s so dreamy
Zamn záddy indeed!
He’s owned that status since he first appeared on Law and Order SVU, and Ox. Where the hell have you been for the last 20 years?
I’ve seen his new law&order show, and he is fantastic. What an expressive face! And a great voice. He makes Hargitay sound like she’s phoning her lines in (with a bad connection). And that’s not even taking into account her frozen face.
He’s in pretty good shape. But if I was getting paid as much as he was and had a personal trainer and knew I was going to be the star of a tv series, I’d be in better shape, too.
The man is proud of all his hard work at gym pumping up those glutes! Where are the pictures?!?
What’s a Zaddy. I get the daddy part but what is the significance of the Z?
Got it. An attractive older man! But the Z?
I’ve had a crush on him ever since he was on Law & Order SVU, he gets hotter with age
Not one mention here in these comments about his nude episodes on OZ only mention of Law and Order…. Come on people get with it!
