On My Mind

I don't know about the rest of you but Shane Warne's appearance has been on my mind lately (look I never pretended this was a blog about world peace). And I'm not the only one- the Today show practically dedicates a daily segment to his New Look. Say what you will about her, Ole Liz Hurley Burley's managed to get him to shed the kilos. Is it a face lift? Fillers? A spray tan? A combo deal of all of these things?

  1. hi FF Shane Warne has been troubling me greatly too.

    Mind you if there is anything more troubling than his shiny smooth face it is seeing him and Liz snogging at various public events in India, London, Brighton etc. Urrghh.

    I personally think he has has a bit of smoothing but it is obvious he has lost of a lot of weight so maybe that is it.

    And yes she has Bent Him To Her Will, hasn't she.

  2. Me Too!! He's starting to look a bit like an old fashioned h/bollywood movie star, well overtanned. Lisa W on today gives him such a hard time .

  3. My husband follows Shane on Twitter. Here is a rant he had not so long ago:

    "I have always taken pride in my appearance and an attack on EH is unfair. I'm proud of how I look and worked my butt of for 4 months ! I have always dressed nicely & have been dressed by Dunhill for the last few years ! I am now 41 and wanted to be fit for IPL 4.. Since starting fitness kick-lost around 12/13 kg's - feel great - am proud to be fitter, healthier and happier than any stage of my life !
    Has nothing to do with my girlfriend or her direction. It's a choice I have made a while ago and now are totally into my new daily routines So you hacks that keep reporting negative about EH or my face -enough dribble. Get off her back, all is great thankyou I Feel better now ! Rant over sorry guys - just not fair and had enough Big day at Trent bridge tomorrow. Food time-pasta with friends tonight Have a good one"

  4. Whatever it is, it scares me! He's like a walking wax sculpture. I think he's channeling Ken Doll, and likes the plastic look.

  5. I did not know who Shane was...after a bit of Googling, I found out he is a very famous cricket player.

    He FOR SURE had some work done. Looks like Botox, fillers, and he has no sag in his jawline so he must have had a mini-lift, at the very least.

    He looked so much better before! I don't even recognize him from his older photos. He looked much more masculine pre-weight loss and whatever else he's done. I am not very attracted to this new look. At all.

    I guess he won't be joining the anti-plastic surgery group Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet and Rachel Weisz formed. I love that they did that....

  6. I'm more worried FF with the unsightly stain on his shirt not to mention some liquid dripping down his face. I think he must have sculled one of his diet shakes and rushed out the door. Old Liz was filming Gossip Girl in New York and wasn't on hand to give his face a quick wipe and send him on his way.
    We all know what a scoundrel he was to his first wife Simone and I don't think Old Liz will be able to teach this old dog any new tricks.

  7. Truly I can't see this relationship going the distance, I mean our Warnie is a blokes' bloke after all.
    I read he attributes the new face to Liz's marvy estee lauder moisturisers. Pffft.

  8. Dear Ms FF, Is he a Stepford Husband? Lindaxxx

  9. He looks terrible, and I've noticed that Justin Theroux is going the same way.

  10. Wrong, just wrong! Somehow he looks like skinny version of Napoleon Perdis to me...

  11. I'm with Raine and Sage ... It's just too weird for me!!

  12. Oh he reminds me of one of those characters from
    The Thunderbirds TV show with those puppet type people from waaaay back!

    EEK!

  13. I have no problem with him being trim - my issue is the vacant, bored look he now sports. Along with the kilos, he has lost that larrakin sense of humour that made him so famous.

    He now looks like he has absolutely no fun. What's the point then?

  14. I heard on the news (I think, or maybe a mag?) that he is on one of those 'shake' meal replacement diets, and he has a shake in place of two meals a day. Doesn't sound like fun to me. I'm thinking he could be in the new cast of Real Housewives of London/Melbourne?

  15. I'm with Sonia, there is just something not natural about ole Shane these days. Maybe he's had one too many shots of botox.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Adrienne, I should have explained who he is for my American readers!

    That Napoleon Perdis comment made me laugh out loud.

    I'm not sure if he and Liz will last the distance either...I wonder if they broke up if he'd pile back on the weight?

    I also wonder what Simone makes of it all. (she's the 1st wife for those who aren't from round these here parts)

    ReplyDelete
  17. he's looking a bit too much like a Madam Tussaud version of himself (albeit a much slimmer one!)... too much tan... too much botox....can you imagine them both in 20 years what they will look like? she'll still be getting about in her safety pin outfit no doubt. But i agree FF.... the power of that woman! I can barely get Mr E to pick up the bathmat.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hello Lizzy? Madame Tussauds here. We'd like our Shane back if you've finished with him. Thanks.

  19. Definitely plastic, or could it be wax?! Kerri's comment pretty much says it all! Apparently, as I am informed by my older two who are qualified to say, the teenage set are going with the definitely plastic opinion too. And they would know, definitely! Even the fake looking hair troubles me no end! Beck x

  21. I'm not sure what it is, but he is starting to resemble an ageing Ken doll. Oh and his nipples in that shot - what is with that?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm with the other Tiffany who said he looks like a skinny version of the Hideous Napoleon Perdis. I liked SW better chubby, to be honest. Not that I ever found him terribly appealing, but now he's just horrible.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think he looks like a male version of Liz Hurley. Put a brown long-haired wig on him and a pair of white jeans and see what i mean!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Now if only he could get an IQ lift as well..

    ReplyDelete
  25. There is general consensus amongst those who follow this closely that he is resembling Ken a bit these days.

    Do you think Ken deserves such a comparison?

    Love the blog. If I wanted to read (more) about world peace or the lack thereof I'd pick up a copy of some newspaper that hasnt yet had its reputation sullied by a phone hacking scandal.

    Keep it up FF! We LOVE IT!!!!

  26. Thumbs up for the weight loss, two thumbs down for the funny looking face.
    I can't wait for Liz Hurley to get sick of him and dump his arse.

    Hopefully Simone won't take him back next time.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Scary.

    I feel so sorry for his poor kids. Imagine the shame - they are all old enough to read the papers/ headlines (not to mention having difficulty recognising their Dad in his new incarnation) and he's clearly not spending much time with them. Melbourne to London is not an easy commute, is it?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am loving this post sick. The comments have had me laughing out loud...Napoleon Perdis, Stepford Husband, Thunderbirds, Madame Tussauds, Ken Dolls, IQ lift...brilliant comments by one and all. Thanks FF, FF followers and Warnie for the laughs xx

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm with Sonia from Raine and Sage, some definite chanelling of Ken doll. Very plastic looking indeed! Now that Liz has her mitts on him perhaps there is only a plastic mound? ;-)

  30. I saw this photo the other day and couldn't believe how ridiculous he looks! It has been troubling me too. Maybe he goes to the same 'dermatologist' as Kylie and Madonna?

  31. He has turned into David Furnish.

  32. I think they're both drinking goat's blood!

    I am the same, FF. I complain about old Shaney, his horrible ways, his cheating tendencies, his smoking, his lies, his cries of "my mum gave me the diet tablet!, his perchant for menage a trois with Page Three girls...and my husband, while he agrees with me, always manages to counter with the retort: "He's the best spin bowler, the BEST leggie, that Australia has ever had".

    *sigh* Sometimes, even the best man just doesn't get the depths of my disdain...

    ReplyDelete
  33. How creepy is that photo? I think it is not helped by the 'vacant' look his glasses give him.

    He is heading for a train-wreck here (thanks Dr Phil!) as this behaviour surely can't be healthy. Surely. Maybe he is averse to carbs now.

    ReplyDelete
  34. He looks nothing like the Warny of old... he should change his name to 'Scrawny'...or maybe even 'Tawny'

  35. I celebrate a cinderella story every time. Nothing better than a makeover, I say. But there is something definitely strange about his face. I have only discovered in recent times that when people in the public sphere start to look strange it is always down to the cosmetic/plastic surgeon. I don't think there is anything wrong with a bit of plastic surgery, but it should be subtle, not startle you like a slap to the face. I will never forget seeing a bit of a Katie Price interview once where she was crying and I thought to myself that she was being insincere because only her mouth and eyelids were moving. It looked so WRONG. And then I realised that it was because she couldn't move her whole face. That is when it occurred to me that you could definitely go too far with botox.

  36. I agree with BusyBrissieMama - he's a male version of Liz. He even has the same posture, and coming out of a posh London address just adds to it.

    Good on him for losing the excess weight, but I do wonder if it's sustainable. Wish we could fast forward by 12 mths and see how he looks and if Liz is still by his side.

    love

  37. He looks ridiculous. Like a Ken doll!!

  38. Formally known as 'warney' now referred to as 'scrawny' by the vicious but witty British tabloids.

  39. I find him very upsetting I guess I am afraid all Australians will be judged as being similar to him. Re what is going on with the look as you would say - I think it is the whole shebang - facelift, fillers, botox and fake tan. I would call lyposuction too.

    He is quite a vain and silly creature. Remember when he was banned for drugs rather than fess up that diruectics help 'shed' traces of steroids he said his mum gave him diruertics to help him appear 'slim' i.e. his excuse was 'I took the banned drug to wee myself skinny.'

  40. I know nothing about him, I can only tell by what I see . he looks so gay. There is a public pool in Vienna where all the gays meet - he would blend in the crowd perfectly.
    Maybe it's just because men in Vienna are usually less styled and it's mostly the gays that care that makes me think he is gay. Also his haircolour (which is apparently not his natural colour). Besides I dont really care ;-)

  41. I thought Shane looked much better when he was a bit on the beefy side -- more manly and a bit of a rogue. That said, I wouldn't want to date or marry him as he's too much of a player. Any man who looks like he spends more time in front of the mirror than I do, isn't appealing.

    I find the tossled, casual Aussie style very sexy (that's why I married one).

    ReplyDelete
  42. He and Liz look like Barbie and Ken. And he might melt, just the same as Ken if you leave him too close to a bbq.

    What has he done to himself?!

    The only thing that reassures me that it is Shane Warne are the stains down the front of his t-shirt.

    Liz has RUINED him.

  43. I adore Liz Hurley and this latest chapter in her love life is keeping us all entertained. Shane is probably v. good company, but perhaps not a good bet for the long term. But I'm certain Liz knows what she's doing! I feel a diet book coming on! xxx

  44. The media is calling him scrawnie warnie. Enough said

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love how tabloids are calling him 'Scrawnie' now instead of Warnie. Genius.

  46. Wishing you a belated happy birthday, FF!

    Ha! Ken doll - yes, I see it...

    Before I read the Ken comment, I was actually thinking he was channelling a character from that old cartoon, Thunderbirds...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Whatever he did, I hope it can be reversed? A-M xx

    ReplyDelete
  48. I find this is what intrigues me mostly: The exact type of plaso ole Scrawnie Warnie has had and whether he had to pay for it, as EH seems to be the last of the great freeloaders. Come on Sun/Mirror et al, can't you just photocopy his Medicare statements or something? Oh that's right, we don't do that anymore. Also am loving this post and comments SICK.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It's all of the above & it scares me, he is plastic unfantastic. Was she not attracted to whatever the hell she saw in him before, this is pretty drastic. Sorry, just can't admire a bloke THAT into his look. I'm embarrassed for him, love Posie

    ReplyDelete
  50. He seems like he has some sort of "wasting disease", very unwell appearance. I would think he has lost some of his bankability as the Aussie larikin - homogenous, no personality in his face. Sort of like that weird thing that Paul Hogan and Robert Redford did to their faces. Yuk. Preferred to the old Warnie the world's greatest "leggie"! Very sad.

    ReplyDelete
  51. What's fair I wonder about you and your readers criticising Shane Warne's appearance, when you cry foul if someone dares express a negative opinion of your appearance?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I hate to admit it but I'm with Paula, if he wasn't such a player I'd think he was gay. Over groomed and looking a little Nancy but my gaydar isn't what it used to be! That Aussie bloke look is gone! Too bad

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Anon, I'm not criticising his appearance, I admire anyone who can lose weight and keep themselves trim. This is a post about how I can't stop thinking about his appearance. Best wishes, FF xx
