We thought Jimmy Kimmel‘s latest viral video attempt, “Handsome Men’s Club,” where a bunch of Hollywood’s hottest dudes hang out and talk about how handsome they are (this isn’t a real thing?), was cute. Then we realized that it was a thinly veiled dig at ex Sarah Silverman, who said recently that Jimmy never called her pretty during the seven years they dated, and things got a whole lot more interesting.
The video itself drags on a little too long — probably because Jimmy scored half of Hollywood to make appearances. It’s not as epic as “I’m F—ing Matt Damon/Ben Affleck,” but it’s worth a watch — if not to see the stab at his ex, then to count the sheer number of handsome men Jimmy could round up. Dude has lots of friends in high places.
We still can’t get over the fact that he’s so blatantly responding to Sarah’s comments. Do you think this was a cute way to address the controversy? Or was it an inappropriate venue?
For reference, a complete list of the Handsome Men’s Club members (read after you watch so as to not ruin the novelty of their first appearances): Patrick Dempsey, Gilles Marini, Josh Hartnett, Sting, Rob Lowe, Jon Krasinski, Ethan Hawke, Matthew McConaughey, Ted Danson, Rob Lowe, Tony Romo, Keith Urban, Taye Diggs, Lenny Kravitz, and of course, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.
