Manolo says, Jack Nicholson wears Crocs!
Manolo loves the shoes!
Yes, but at least he’s at the marina. He’s using the beasts for their intended purpose! I say his punishment is lessened due to this.
OH NO! Jack Nicholson is my super-secret, hot-old-man, evil-smile, sexy-because-he-looks-like-he’d-be-kinda-mean, celebrity crush! RUINED FOREVER! Geeeeeez, thanks Manolo! THANKS FOR NOTHING! (Okay, just kidding, I still love you.)
Um, did anyone notice he looks DISTINCTLY crocodile-like in this photo? :\ Maybe I’m not in love with him after all.
I think outside of his Croc-wearing-hopefully-it-is-just-on-a-boat time, back in a sharp suit – he could still raise those eyebrows and grin and be the same evil old man hotness.
You’ve heard of “Sexy-Ugly”, Jack is definitely “Codger-Sexy”.
Gimme some Sug-ah!
Ugh, can you hear it? That’s the sound of my admiration for the man, being flushed down the toilet. You lose your cool when you wear crocs.
Gala & Poochie,
Here I thought I was the only one with a secret Jack fantasy. So nice to find others who can appreciate his wicked, wicked ways. He may be a codger, but I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eatin’ crackers, but for wearing crocs, well just maybe.
but now he’s a FAT old man wearing crocs! not charming at all…
At least he’s comfortable, and I love that they are Carolina blue!
He’s got moobs as well.
Ah well, I guess we’re all just looking for a few good men..
Only mine will be wearing Sperry top-siders.
AAAHAHAHAH! You can’t handle the truth! That is classic, Manolo dear!
Thanks for the Monday morning laughs! =)
At least he was boating. That’s the whole purpose of those shoes. I hate seeing them on the street because they are for gardening or boating. Outside of those activities it is totally a f-p.
Gardening? Boating? I was thinking deep sea fishing lures.
I feel bad that Jack can’t afford the real shoes. I guess his hollywood cache is on the decline.
Jack Nicholson is a big bad boy on the outside (“Five Easy Pieces”) and a marshmallow softie in the inside (“Something’s gotta give”). Either way, he is a Devil-may-care character whose core appeal is in shunning conventional expectations and pretense. So he is a seventy year old man and he looks it and behaves with all the assured indifference that behooves his reputation.
As this comedian described it so well in the epilogue to one of his sit-com episode:
“What is that age that old people reach when they decide
when they back out of their driveway, they’re not looking anymore.
You know how they do that? They just go:
“Well, I’m old and I’m coming back.”
“I survived. Let’s see if you can.”
So, Nicholson is not looking anymore… And the ladies can tear their hair in sheer frustration for all that he cares…
As long as he doesn’t wear socks with crocs when he is at a marina.
Haha. Has everyone forgotten The Witches of Eastwick? He was really…something…in that movie!!
I’ve never found him to be the hot old man though. That will always be reserved for Sean Connery….
Manolo! Say it ain’t so! My image of Jack will always be as he was in 5 Easy Pieces, not wearing crocs. Ayeeei!
On vacation this past week I saw a fashion crime so heinous it hurts to type it: adults with jibbitz. Jibbitz are those plastic things that kids stick in the holes of crocs. Adults in crocs were everywhere and it was horrible. The worst were adults in faux-crocs that were tie-dyed. And can I just add one more fashion crime from our vacation: a tankini top folded under your boobs does not a bikini make. Seriously.. stop it.
Crocs and fat pasty white legs – not bringing sexy back today
Ayyyy! Stephen Tyler also wears crocs of a hue I call “industrial beige”, with leather pants and while partying. Why did I not have the foresight to get photographic proof of this?? You’ll just have to trust me. It was SHOCKING.
yummm. Sean Connery….
And Patrick Stewart!
But I digress
fun article in slate.com about crocs 7/13/07. they were described as “heinous” among other descriptives…
Ohh, how did I forget about Patrick Stewart…
Allow me to agree with JQ.
The crocs were originally designed for the boater (perhaps the gardeners are allowed). The non-slip shoe which does not grow immediately into a nasty bacterial garden on the outside, like canvas shoes do when exposed to seawater, nor holds water in close to the feet to create fungal problems, is a grand innovation for that market and is a fine idea in its place. It only becomes an eyesore when people mistake those shoes for appropriate streetware; it is akin to those who mistake bikini tops for “shirts” or spandex bike shorts for “pants”.

Elaine: This woman has never, not once,
ever, as long as I have known her, worn a bra.
George: Ah, that is disgusting–
Jerry: That is just shameless, I don’t know, There’s no–
George: The woman’s a pig, what wrong with her–
Jerry: It’s wrong, it’s rude, and it’s–
George: It’s disgusting–
Elaine: Her birthday’s comin’ up, so I decided to get her a little
Jerry: What are you going to get her?
Elaine: A very traditional, a very supportive, brazier.
Jerry: There’s nothing subtle about that.
(Scene: Elaine’s office at J Peterman)
Receptionist on Intercom: Sue Ellen Mishke to see you.
Elaine: Sue Ellen Mishke? Ah, alright, send her in.
(Sue Ellen enters, wearing the brazier as a top, with a black blazer)
Sue Ellen: Hi Elaine.
Sue Ellen: I happened to be in the neighborhood, so I thought I’d stop
in, and thank you for your lovely gift.
Elaine: Ohhhhh. You’re….welcome.
Sue Ellen: Is anything wrong?
Elaine: Well, Sue Ellen, it’s a, it’s not a top, it’s a bra.
Sue Ellen: Oh, I know. Thanks again.
I’m surprised at good ole Jack! He’s an awesome actor. I can’t say the same about his choice in footwear. I may be biased simply because I’m a woman who wears size 11 shoes and can’t ever see myself adding more square footage to my size 11 feet.
Andrea, Your Feet Make You Unqiue
I just saw a whole family in Crocs. The two year old looked cute…
oh god i hate, HATE crocs. they are the ugliest things i have ever seen and i cannot imagine WHY people would even wear them. YUCK.
