Hot Hunk of Male Super Modeldom, Tyson Beckford, reveals that there is a lot more work involved when using a celeb for a cover shoot than using a legitimate model.
“One day some designer will wake up and say, You Know what? I don’t want to use Gwyneth Paltrow” and will opt to “go back to high fashion.”
Accrording to AP Tyson explains, “You have to do a lot of tweaking and airbrushing to get the same from a celebrity that you would get from a model. A lot of celebrities — I’m gonna tell you right now — they’re not 5’11″; they’re not a size 2 to fit into these designer dresses, but the designers want exposure so they’re willing to make the specific dress for that actor or actress to get them to look good on the cover.” Take that George Clooney!
With Justin Timberlake on the cover of GQ’s Most Stylish Man Issue, it is clear that this really makes his pecs sweat. One thing for him to consider, though, is that it certainly takes a lot of work, time, and money trying to get a model to act (and a lot of them try). He didn’t exactly win an Academy Award for his role in the 2003 blockbuster flop Biker Boyz. Hopefully Pecs Beckford doesn’t plan on continuing an acting career, after these comments, he may not have so many friends left in Hollywood!
