Tom & Michael: body language [Feb. 24th, 2010|08:26 pm]

Much as I enjoy posed photos of the guys, I really love candids. For actors, a posed photo is really just another form of acting, they're creating an image for the viewer; whereas in a candid photo, it's fun to speculate what less guarded body language may reveal!



Tom, not liking the paparazzi, ducks his head and shows some sexy tongue. (Reminds me of how a cat reacts when annoyed: paw goes behind the head, time for an affronted wash!)

Michael looks a little uncertain here, unusual for him. Why the lost puppy face, love?

This is a voyeuristic shot - Tom doesn't know he's being photographed. But I love this pic because it catches him in a very Tom-moment. He's not just looking at the board, he's considering it from all angles, bringing all his critical thought to bear on it.

Michael in fanboy mode, head and body tilted towards one of his idols.

Tom, always so great with kids, here ignores the hovering photographer to focus exclusively on Tyler James Williams

Michael, after a late night of convention partying. He really does look like the tiredest boy in the world!

Tom's happiest candid ever? There are thousands of eyes on him, cameras flashing....but on his beloved Red Sox mound, he doesn't mind the attention and seems ready to hug the world!.

Michael, caught mid-dance. A mystery photo. Where is he? Is he posing or so absorbed in his dance he doesn't notice the photographer?

Or maybe this is Tom's happiest candid? He looks, he sees Michael, and then he points with his whole body, just like a red setter!

Michael is at the other end of the stage, flanked by beautiful co-stars. Allison & Erica are looking towards him but Michael is looking away from them...

...and towards Tom, standing with Jared & Jensen. Does he want to run down the stage and join Tom?

I think he does! ♥

Shy Tom

In the video interviews I have found on TW, it was obvious to me that he was nervous and very much uncomfortable. He would in some of the early ones look around nervously and not at the interviewer and when he was with Michael in interviews he did seem more relaxed as Mike took the pressure off of him with his own theatrics.

I would also point out in the one audio commentary in SV he was in he really didn't talk much, though his Gollum impression was a nice little highlight.

The fact that he doesn't release much personal info only adds to the fact that he values his privacy and doesn't really like the media hype stuff. Not that I blame him.

BTW the first TW candid has him wearing the same hat he's wearing in the Olympics candid.

And yes Tom has said he like working with kids more than with adults. Maybe its when puberty hits all of a sudden they see how good looking he is and forget the person he is.

Yes, I think it's cool that Tom doesn't seek out the spotlight or care about being famous.

I keep going back to look at the pic of Michael dancing in the white shirt. There is just something so sexy about the white dress shirt, sleeves rolled up and top few buttons open. I could stare at that pic forever. ;)

The lady behind him sure looks impressed! (I'd be staring too.)

The first pic..very sexy but makes me wonder if Tom was a cat in a previous life, because he does look very feline from certain angles. And why does Michael look so sexy when dancing??? Tis not fair!

Tom does have rather cat-like features (and sexy green eyes!)

Lots of rhythm in that lithe body!

Ooh, lovely shots. I really like Tom's hats, they all look great on him. And that last one *sigh*. They love each other, they really do (*cough* not that I'm completely biased or anything ;)).

Tom is super-cute in hats!

Michael looks like he can't wait for the photo to be taken so he can tell Tommy something RIGHT NOW!

I've always loved that last pic---Kristen's looking at the camera, Tom's looking off to his left somewhere---and Michael's looking at Tom.

I love that high-wattage smile.

It's such a gorgeous smile, as though he's just thought of something funny and wants to share it with Tom!

This is a great picspam! I love that last photo - looking at Tom's face I'm imagining that he's trying his hardest to not crack up at something Michael just said, being professional for the camera and all - Michael's got that grin and expression that's just waiting for Tom to break any inevitable second now.

He does look very pleased with himself and highly mischievous!

Lovely picspam! I like your interpretation of the pics. Body language is an interesting subject, particularly if the bodies deserve the attention!

From this picspam, I am especially paying attention to Tom's calves!

very nice theme for a picspam. I just love it when Michael stares at Tom. And that smile kills me every time.

Aww, Michael looks so unsure of himself in that second one! And the one where he's dancing is fascinating - did he crash someone's wedding? Is he concentrating hard on remembering dance steps or trying to read something off his hand? Who knows!

Love happy yeti!Tom too - so nice to see him not bothered by the attention.

And I like the ones where they are apart on the stage - Michael looks like he's thinking 'Why I am stuck over here with the ladies? I wanna be over there with my boy!' And Tom's thinking 'Don't worry Michael, this boring work stuff will be over soon, then we'll have some fun!'

It's easy to imagine him wandering into a party and then just staying! I can't tell if he's doing "the robot" or attempting an authentic Indian dance there. The lady watching looks so amused!

Eeee, I think he does, too!

And now I wanna find out more about Indian (Hindu) weddings and RPS them attending one, as Michael's dancing pic...Maybe after they went to a surfboard shop because Tom wanted a new board that morning? Heee!

I do appreciate Tom's calves. That's all for now.

:P

We hardly get to see his calves and they're quite stunning!

such kind of pictures are sometimes the best ones. to see them like this, not really knowing that they are watched by others, just doing whatever they wanna do in this moment. makes the pics kind of special. and hilarious, some of them. but it's nice to see them 'off guard'.

thanks, bb ♥

Yes, I wish we had more candids of them together!
