TOM CRUISE AND SYLVESTER STALLONE LEAD THE PACK OF HOLLYWOOD GUYS WHO WEAR GIRDLES
Variations of Spanx for men are becoming a hot commodity in Hollywood. A New York underwear line with the annoying name of 2(x)ist (pronounced “to exist”) is selling out on their tank top with a “hidden compression lining,” and trunks with a six inch fitted waistband to minimize muffin tops. 50 Cent, Justin Timberlake, and Mickey Rourke are already customers of the line. And don’t forget, Tom Cruise wore a girdle under his Armani wedding tux! Maybe Sylvester Stallone will be interested also – this reminds us of an old story about him. Sly had to gain around 30 pounds for a movie and struggled to take it off. He shopped at Bergdorf Goodman for clothes to make him look thinner while he lost the excess pounds. After he left they found some kind of male “girdle” he left behind in his dressing room! Nobody wanted to mention it to him, and he never called to get it back.
