Megyn Kelly in GQ?

posted at 4:45 pm on November 19, 2010 by Matt Lewis

Mediabistro reports that Fox News’ Megyn Kelly “is in the 2010 GQ Men of the Year issue, which hit newsstands this week.”

According to New York Magazine,

She talks about her fan e-mail: “Some of them just say, ‘You’re hot” — which, you know, I don’t find insulting. But the ones that go a little over the top get deleted right away,” she said. “My rule is, if anybody writes in asking for a head shot and compliments me or the show or just wants one, that’s fine, they can have a head shot. But if they write anything perverted, they’re not getting one … I know what’s going to happen to that head shot.”

Kelly is obviously attractive.  She’s also incredibly smart.

But while it’s not uncommon for TV personalities, commentators and even journalists to benefit from their attractiveness (hey — how do you think I made it this far?), I still can’t help but wonder if being this overtly sexy is a smart move.

Thoughts???

She’s smart (despite attending SU…),

Holy crap, I had no idea. We were there at the same time and I missed her.

Absolutely.

The one in the chair kinda looks like she tooted

Yeah, I was going to let someone else go first on that observation.

It’s like she couldn’t fit in the chair or something. More weird than sexy.

Yes. Shut up.

Jim-Rose on November 19, 2010 at 5:31 PM

IS that picture what’s her name? ‘cuz if it is there is something lacking; that twinkle in the eye, the enticing facial expression, the pout, the extra ‘something’ that lures men into the web, and it ain’t there.

What I see in that picture is the evil witch, the nightmare face, the lust for your wallet, the shrew that gets half of everything you have for one very small taste of her ‘stuff’.

Run, Run Boys, Run for your life…

It certainly does not hurt to use your attractive attributes.
And for those on the other side of politics and gender…remember when they made a big deal over Matt Lauer beach shots?

lwssdd on November 19, 2010 at 5:35 PM

You can tell she’s totally thinking of the New Black Panthers right there.

YYZ on November 19, 2010 at 5:36 PM

We should all mail her a “Don’t touch my junk!” T-shirt and ask her to wear it on the air. I’d pay good money to be a fly on the wall the next time she has to go through TSA airport security.

My collie says:

They’re probably afraid to touch her. She’s a lawyer, ya’ know. Hmmm. I wonder what size T-shirt she wears.

JetBoy on November 19, 2010 at 5:39 PM

In the 1943 MGM cartoon “Red Hot Riding Hood,” Red is a grown-up woman who sings in a nightclub and the Wolf is a tuxedoed Don Juan who goes bonkers when sexy Red slinks onto the stage to start her act.

If you remember the cartoon and the Wolf’s reax to Red, you’ve got an approximate idea of what happened over here in my own lair when I glimpsed that shot of Megyn on the HA landing page.

She looks… smart.

Thune on November 19, 2010 at 5:41 PM

I don’t know, AP. I think this is OK, given her husband has no problem with it. She portrays herself well on screen, with both dignity and modesty. Why not have some fun?

I’d do it if I had the body for it. :)

annoyinglittletwerp on November 19, 2010 at 4:58 PM

100% agree. – This serves no good purpose and diminishes her. It is rather sad – that (as a mom – and married) she felt comfortable doing this.

Just look at some of the reader comments about a married woman on this (conservative?) website – and one can see society’s lack of respect for another man’s wife – even here.

Everyone knows the beauty you are mesmerized by. Then she opens her mouth and she sounds like some bonehead at a reality show tryout. Then you have Ms Kelly. She is a stunner, but then she speaks and you are mesmerized by just how freaking smart and funny she is.

lorien1973 on November 19, 2010 at 5:50 PM

Megyn Kelly is a lovely woman. That’s a tacky, undignified photograph. It doesn’t do much to convey that she’s a smart, serious, and talented anchor. If Brit Hume or Bret Baier wouldn’t pose for a similar photograph, she shouldn’t either.

Fox News has really doubled-down on who gives a **** this week. First, Roger Ailes calls Obama a socialist and NPR Nazis, now this.

Talk about a take-it-or-leave-it approach to your audience.

She already has her own show. I guess the only thing left is a move to prime time on Fox. But otherwise she may already have everything she wants.

O’Reily had an interview with her about when she flew to New York for her job interview with Fox and the TSA guy wanted her to take off her jacket that wasn’t meant to be taken off. She said she was crying. That should be the next Hot Air story. Forget Merkow in Alaska and Palin stories or more Obama is a socalist stories.

juanito on November 19, 2010 at 6:08 PM

Cautionary note: Guys, when you pick up your copy of GQ and you’re leafing through it and have stopped at the Megyn Kelly spread, be sure that you’re NOT at that very same moment going through either the TSA “X-Ray Specs” machine or being treated to an enhanced pat-down — in such an event, the screeners will either recoil in stunned surprise or assume you’re just glad to see them (and may even be asked out on a date).

OkieDoc on November 19, 2010 at 6:24 PM

I bet she wouldn’t have done this at age 25, but now that she’s approaching middle age and also feels the pressure showbiz inflicts on photogenic women to remain so, changed her mind. The arguable male equivalent is a midlife crisis including Ferrari and/or trophy wife/mistress. Or at least a Harley. Would it be unseemly for Mike Huckabee or Mitt Romney to pose astride a Harley?

Used to be that hot women weren’t afraid to be a woman in all their sexuality. Think Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russel. When a woman turns 40–it’s nice to know you still got ‘it’. As for the prudes that are sitting with their legs firmly together, their lips pursed in disproving frowns–claiming that ‘only her husband should be seeing this”…what’s with the self-righteous condemning of the whistles from the HA gents? Did you really think HA guys are beta’s??? I’m glad to see red-blooded men that are still MEN, and conservative women that aren’t ashamed to be hot~

lovingmyUSA on November 19, 2010 at 6:39 PM

Has Ms. Kelly ever been polled?

She’s an asshat to do this. I find these cheesecake shoots disgusting to women & immoral no matter who is doing them, but when it’s a supposed journalist, this is absolutely undermining to her career.

Thank goodness, I stopped liking her a long time ago when she was on BOR siding with the ACLU in some case.

Idiot.

Why do people think being conservative means being a prude? Why so puritanical? There are a lot of sexy conservative women these days. Haven’t you heard sex sells? Should we trade her in for Helen Thomas? Should she be in a burqa? You can vote conservative and still enjoy looking at a nice rack.

deewhybee on November 19, 2010 at 7:01 PM

This is a horrible pic of MK’s face. She looks hard and rough here. She’s way better looking than this, IMO. That said, if my body looked like this, I’d walk around naked 24/7.

deewhybee on November 19, 2010 at 7:01 PM

I’d say a significant portion of the the HA hags are upset that they don’t look like that, or evidently they don’t enjoy looking sexual (because obviously that is not part of being “womanly”). I’d hate to see what their wardrobe looks like–those mom-jeans are not the same as the little black dress…
Reminds me of when woman’s lib wanted us to stop shaving and only wear pants and shapeless tops. Didn’t want us to be treated as “women” but as equals…FUGGLY…
