He Would Be The Real Dorian Gray If He Was Naturally Blonde  
 (Original art credit to brainmarsed @ tumblr)

Title: Jared Leto Is Dorian Gray
Artist: wincestuouslove 
Rating: Gen
A/N: Ben Barnes is beautiful but he is NOT Oscar Wilde's Dorian Gray.
Not to be disrespectful to anybody, I was inspired to manip the book cover just because I found that Jared Leto does not age!
That dude was born in 1971 but he still looks like a teenager to me.
Fuckin' scary!
See Jude Law's version here.


Still not good enough?
Let's try...


One thing that will never change.

I shamelessly took it as a compliment. Thanks :D

Can you believe he is almost 40?

Just beautiful and so possible <3

I love Ben Barnes, he's so dirty on so many levels and innocent at the same time, but his creation at "Dorian Gray" wasn't the best. Jared on the other hand would add this bit of madness that is in Dorian...

I love your manip, artwork! so much <3

I began watching "Mr Nobody" yesterday. This film is seriously fucked up. And beautiful. And Jared is just stunning. And there is Mars there. Maybe that's why he decided to take a part in it? no idea but.. so far this film just enchanted me.

According to the book, Dorain should has golden hair, blue eyes, red rose lips and probably looks pale like snow. It's not Ben Barnes fault that he looks nothing like that.

Why on Earth that the public has to fuck-up Oscar's definition of aesthetic? I'm so curious to know the reason.

I couldn't imagine how it would be if Jared did play Dorian Gray. But I trust his acting!!!!!!!!!!!

But have you finished the Mr. Nobody yet? 'cos I really want to ask you some questions.
Ines del Solinesdelsol on January 26th, 2011 01:49 pm (UTC)
I will finish this film today, promise, yesterday I passed out when something like 20 mins left.

As for Mr Wilde. I love this man, I went to Dublin to bow in front of his statue. He was so damn epic. He's my hero.

Dorian... he's always been a mystery to me. Watch "Velvet Goldmine" and you'll find Oscar and Dorian there as well. It''s a smashing film.

LOL. You passed out.
Some people cannot stand the servance and the constant jumping of the scenes in different time and spaces. I actully have to watch it twice to get the whole picture.

Wait. I remember the reference of Oscar Wlide in Vevlet Goldmine but where was Dorian? Jonathan Rhys Meyer is STUNNNNNNNNNING in that movie. OMZ!

Ines del Solinesdelsol on January 26th, 2011 02:12 pm (UTC)
Well I always thought JRM was in fact a kind of Dorian in this film. Maybe Im over interpreting ;)
wincestuouslove: omgwincestuouslove on January 26th, 2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
Oh I see. Never thought of that.
I just know JRM is David Bowie in the film, and... Ewan's penis ;)
Ines del Solinesdelsol on January 26th, 2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
It's not that it's David Bowie as a whole, well sort of it is part of Bowie's performance but in general the person JRM pictures is a combination of glam rock creatures. Same as Ewan is sort of Kurt Cobain. Ewan's penis, yeah, covered with glitter :P and him and JRM in bed. OHGOD

MMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm :)

I couldn't watch "Mr Nobody" yesterday to till the end because I .. .fell asleep. I know I'm horrible, but I'm exhausted recently. And as for this film I need to be focused, extremely *hugs*
wincestuouslovewincestuouslove on January 27th, 2011 07:59 am (UTC)
Don't worry hun, no stress. Tell me when you finish it.
Yes, the film exhausts the audience 'cos it needs us to be extra attentive, otherwise you will be fooled. Hope you'll have enough rest and will feel better soon.
Ines del Solinesdelsol on January 27th, 2011 08:13 am (UTC)
I just got load of things to do before the trip to London; maybe tonight I will finish this film, if I don't pass out again ;)
wincestuouslove: he ain't gay he's just englishwincestuouslove on January 27th, 2011 08:25 am (UTC)
LONDON! I love that place!!
Is it a vacation?
Hope you have a nice trip :)
Ines del Solinesdelsol on January 27th, 2011 08:28 am (UTC)
Kind of vacation yeah, pretty short, 5 days in London , week in Derby and unfortunately I need to come back to reality again :/
wincestuouslove: :Dwincestuouslove on January 27th, 2011 09:32 am (UTC)
Not very short. I had joined a tour that visit 9 Europe countries witnin 12 days. It means I've been London for... one day.
Ines del Solinesdelsol on January 27th, 2011 10:33 am (UTC)
9 countries in 12 days? It's a disaster, you cannot enjoy it I think? I mean... one day in London...?

Hey, that's really good! Great manip, it looks just like the real thing.

And I agree, I've seen pictures of the latest "Dorian Gray" movie and the actor looked all wrong... my favourite is the 1940s version. While the actor there isn't exactly blond either, at least it doesn't show much in a b&w movie. ^_^

And some people simply don't age... it's amazing.
wincestuouslove: he ain't gay he's just englishwincestuouslove on January 26th, 2011 10:08 pm (UTC)
Really? Thank you. I just made one with Jude Law as Dorian.

If you've watch the movie, you know everything in the plot is wrong. In the movie they focus on the romance between Dorian and Henry's daughter, which is not in the original novel.

If it is so difficult to find the right actor with blonde hair and blue eyes, I don't mind a dye job and some contact lens.
For example, Jude Law's hair is not naturally blonde but he still play the perfect Bosie.
However, it looks like most people believe/accept Dorian is a brunette with dark eyes instead of his original form. WTF?
spiderorchid81 on January 27th, 2011 09:15 pm (UTC)
Found it, love it! ^_^

They added something like that in the older version too, but it's only a minor plot point, not the main focus. This doesn't sound good at all.

Weird, just weird...
wincestuouslove: dearest of all boyswincestuouslove on January 28th, 2011 01:32 pm (UTC)
Maybe the producers could not take the homoerotic subtext in the original novel. But wtf make an adaption?Strange
spiderorchid81 on January 28th, 2011 11:34 pm (UTC)
Yes, especially strange in a 21st century adaption. I can understand covering it up in the '40s, but now...
