Tom Ford Fights “Gay”

The Out staffers love their aforementioned Tom Ford feature so much, they’re sharing some exclusive Terry Richardson snap shots. And some quotes:

I have to say that I don’t think gay is the most attractive word… Gay makes us sound silly and frivolous, which is probably where it came from – it was first used in a Cole Porter song in the ’30s – and I think it was probably a bit derogatory, and so it’s not a word I necessarily like, but it’s what I am, whatever.

Ford also tells the gay glossy that most of his friends are straight men – and he has crushes on them.

Check out some more pictures – including a steamy shower scene – over at Out.

    He is soooo hot

  • WWH

    Woof: which one? I want all three of them at once!!!

  • Paul Raposo

    Tom Ford is the worst kind of homosexual. No wonder he’s alone and jaded. Clearly, money does not guarantee good taste, nor wisdom.

  • Allen

    Yeah, those two totally don’t have their guard up. I would so tag them with a left jab.

  • WorkOutGuy

    A feature on Genre’s Editor Neal spoke of his boxing – months ago. Can’t anyone be original?

  • Toby

    Er, Tom Ford is alone? You obviously just pontificate without knowing what you’re talking about. He’s been with his partner, Richard Buckley for over 20 years. What’s your claim to fame Paul Raposo? Being a bitch?

  • Paul Raposo

    “He’s been with his partner, Richard Buckley for over 20 years.”

    Funny Mr. Ford didn’t bother to mention Mr. Buckley in the interview GQ did with him for the October 2004 issue. He did however go into detail about his first sexual experience with a girl. Tom Ford is the kind of homosexual who clearly wishes he were straight, but is far too addicted to cock to give it up.

  • afrolito

    Tom Ford seems like the kind of guy who would be in an “open relationship”. He’s also given the impression many times that he’s not the most well adjusted homosexual.

  • Dawster

    umm… that’s all nice, but anyone want to talk about Tom Ford… THE DESIGNER? his awesome design, reinvention of the use of black, attention to minute details, and absolutely gorgeous ass.

    he’s an fantastic designer, he’s totally hot, and he has a great life. he’s not really doing anything wrong…

    and people STILL find a reason to bitch.

  • Dawster

    the vagina scent… that was close to being wrong.

    (mix with a cocaine scent and you smell like a straight man coming home from a strip club!!)

  • Leland Frances

    Puh-LEEZE! Now Ford is a linquist, too? NOT! It was not “first used in a Cole Porter song in the ’30s.” What a ‘tard! “Reinvention of the use of black”? Try Googling Armani, child. And where is that “absolutely gorgeous ass”? I see a tan line across what could be the tiny rear end of an eight-year old tomboy [pun intended]. His aging knees are bigger than his buns.

    As for the flip side, ladies and germs, place your bets about how long it will be………..before we see Little Tom. Or is he like that other tireless meat puppet, Reichenella, so metrically challenged that that Ford will never be taken out of the garage? At least they both have super hung egos.

    In any case: YAWN! The darker young man on the right seems to be thinking, “I am NOT getting paid enough to let this old queen slide his shit-stinking tongue all over me!”

    Ford is the white fag male version of pathetic Mariah Carey: so insecure about his sex appeal and accelerating aging and thinning hair that he has to rub his body in the world’s face. Carey does it with her ever-skimpier drag and ever-enlargening boobs as if we’d never seen any before; Ford with his increasing acreage of exposed skin; both virtually screaming, “Please think I’m hot! Please love me!” Sorry. The request comes at least 25 years too late and devoid of class from birth.

  • Leland Frances

    Make that linGuist. He’s not that either.

  • donsnyc

    Tom Ford is soooo self absorbed and soooo insecure about his homosexuality. He is not the role model the younger gay people can look up to.

  • animal

    does anyone else find this guy creepy….these photos are almost as bad as that vanity fair cover he did…

  • Dawster

    yes… i’m sure he was a designer at YSL and Gucci because he was “pathetic”.

    and his use of texture and cut is “25 years too late and devoid of class”.

    of course. how silly of me.

    and what is it that you design, Leland?
