In light of International Men’s day we at From Mars decided to look at national treasure Louis Theroux and 5 times he encompassed every facet of masculinity.
When He Got A Makeover:
“I feel like a beautiful woman”, utters Louis, face caked, hair preened, as makeup artist and aspiring infomercial star, Chesireé, holds up the mirror. Louis feels like a beautiful woman and he doesn’t care what you think, and that’s that.
When He Stripped Off For a Bodybuilder:
Stood in a promoter’s kitchen Louis stands stoic and proud next to a professional bodybuilder. Not to be outdone by a bronzed behemoth, Louis flaunts his translucent skin, wiry nipple hair, and knot-in-string biceps as if he’s as shredded as the man next to him.
When He Was In A Gay Porn Film:
Louis puts the ‘comfort’ in ‘uncomfortable situation’ and it’s never more prevalent than here. Here’s a man with a wife whose only acting credit to date is in a gay porn film. He really gives ‘security’ a new definition.
When He Was Taking Nudes Before It Was Popular:
An unlikely bastion for body positivity, Louis takes a full frontal nude picture and makes it his mission to show it to everybody in California’s pornographic sphere. He gets knocked back, told he hasn’t got what it takes, but does it phase him? Of course not.
When Professional Wrestlers Made Him Vomit:
Professional wrestlers take offence to a comment Louis made and forced him through a rigorous workout routine rendering him jelly-legged and heaving in the car park. It’s a testament to his character that he gave it a go, not because they forced him, but as “A token of respect”.
