Gibson tops Hollywood ‘Frigid 50’ list
LOS ANGELES: George Clooney might be hot, but Mel Gibson is freezing, according to a list of Hollywood’s ‘coldest’ celebrities published by a movie website on November 17.
While Clooney was named ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for 2006 by People magazine earlier this week, Gibson had to content himself with topping Filmthr-eat.com’s ‘Frigid 50’ list of movie stars who are out of fashion. It followed Gibson’s arrest for drink-driving earlier this year and his subsequent anti-Semitic tirade to police officers. Second on the cold list was Jennifer Aniston, the website said, citing a string of disappointing box-office performances as she attempts to make the jump from the television sit-com Friends to the big screen.
Surprisingly, the comedian known as ‘Borat’, who has taken the US box-office by storm, was third. “The surprise-faux-documentary filmmaking style won’t work a second time,” the website estimated.
Rounding out the top five were Lindsay Lohan, whose party-going lifestyle has attracted criticism from studio bosses this year, and Wesley Snipes, who was facing an investigation into alleged tax fraud.
