I first became aware of Ryan when he did that mind-blowing David LaChapelle video with Amanda Lepore for Armani jeans back in 1991. But I REALLY fell in love with him when he landed the role of Billy Douglas on One Life to Live (left). He was the first gay teenager on a soap, and I will forever love him for it. I still hold out hope that when things get rough for Ryan, he’ll return. Anyway, all this is to say that he was adorable then, but NOW he’s just a WOW. And it’s VERY RARE for someone to look BETTER than they did 20 years ago. Especially a blond twink. You know: They have their day in the sun, and then quickly start to fall apart. But not him! So here’s to celebrating the eternal beauty that is Ryan Phillippe. It’s not quite enough to get me to go see MacGruber next month, but it’s enough that I’m excited about seeing him on SNL this weekend.
