Did Andy Roddick get a Photoshop workout?

Andy1 Andy2

Some earth-shattering news for your Friday afternoon: TMZ thinks Andy Roddick's arms may have had a workout with something other than barbells. A mouse and a Photoshop program perhaps? We (and over 90% of TMZ's readers) would have to agree, although I doubt that routine is an option in their "How to Build Big Arms in 5 Easy Moves" article.

  1. Yeah, as soon as mine came in the mail, I thought "Photochop!" Same thing last month with Carl Edwards, who is hot enough already, but MF made him look ridiculous. It's just another sign of the piece of crap the new editorial team is making out of what was once a great, informative magazine.

    Having said that, Roddick looks even hotter with bigger arms.

  2. I will admit to seeing the cover and not knowing who it was at first but who cares, Andy is HOT!

  3. Ok. I posted this to TMZ, too, but I'd like to point out that the arms are definitely Roddick's. If you ever see him play, his right arm is much bigger and better defined than the left. This is from his serving action and forehand. The left pretty much only gets used during his backhand. In fact, the underdeveloped left highlights some of the problems on his backhand. Being a two handed backhander, the left hand becomes dominant in the swing, but with it so underdeveloped he lacks any real pace or power on the backhand.

  4. I thought it as soon as I saw that cover. He's a cute guy, but he's just NOT that beefy. the arms are the worst giveaway, but the chest and neck are notably enhanced too. That, I do agree that this is commonplace, but it should be quite so noticable.

  5. Yeah I'm not convinced that they stuck his head on someone else's body. I think they SHRUNK his head and enhanced his arms to look bigger than they are.

    Believe NOTHING you see in photography these days.

  6. Check out the official ATP Tennis website. It has an article on Roddick's cover shoot. Andy admits in the write-up that the magazine cover was totally photoshopped. He jokes he didn't recognize his arms or chest but gave props to the computer guy that "enhanced" his look.

  7. The mag is apparently shameless about enhancing the assets of its cover men. I wrote a letter to the editor about it some months back (to no response. It's challenging enough to have the real "fitness models" as examples, let alone guys like James Marsden, Edward Burns, Josh Holloway, and the other cover subjects who have been pumped up not by physical workouts but by mouse-clicks in Photoshop. The Roddick cover is just the latest -- and most blatant -- example. Shame on the magazine for cheating.

  8. I can't believe some of you queens buy that crap magazine! It's awful, a Cosmopolitan for men.

  9. " la sangre es el semen perdido/
    el semen la sangre destilada"....

    James Marsden
    como el pan y el Vino
    poema de Oscar Portela


    Tú me mueves,
    tu me levantas,
    tu me vuelves ingrávido a las hiervas,
    tu me devuelves dinastías antiguas,
    - realezas dormidas -,
    tu, James Marsden,
    surgido de las áureas regiones
    rasgas mi corazón
    y lo abres a los espacios
    cósmicos de los antiguos
    mitos, a los cetros de
    diamantes y el oro del Paytity,
    tu, hermoso como el sol
    de Chichen Itza,
    - eternamente joven
    como el sonido del agua
    sobre la piedra....

    tu, ojo del omnisciente,
    centro del Universo,
    pones alas a mi corazón
    sexo al habla de mi boca,
    y miel a mi frente.

    Deste modo el mundo ya no es solo mundo
    sino diamante de infinitos caras
    y un solo centro,
    y tu el centro sin centro
    de la cósmica fuerza
    que ahora mismo hace girar
    mis manos en torno de tu nombre,
    y me devuelves al sagrado fuego
    de la libertad que me hace verdadero
    y de la verdad que me hace libre
    para el ser y la desposesión de todo,
    entre los brazos del amado.

    James, perfecto, adorado
    como el Edén perdido,
    laberintos de Dedalus,
    tu cuerpo – templo para mil sacrificios
    en aras de la aurora está a la mano
    ahora como la recobrada vid
    en sangre, semen , vino,
    y este recuperado sentido de la tierra .

  10. Andy es un REY. un campo de enrgías: su belleza fisica deslumbra. Nada le falta para ser un Emperador. Es verdaderamente un estadio exitante: sumamente deseable- Oscar


    Rex Pachuta
    Poema de Oscar Portela

    En verdad eres solo desocultamiento
    que enceguece por su hermosura
    de primavera que se repite
    en los almendros florecidos,
    y es tu rostro de puresa y encanto
    un adagio para poetas solitarios.
    Oh joven Dios, oh Rex, me rindo ante
    tus plantas y beso con pasión
    inacabable la piel dorada
    del tallo que florece
    entre tus piernas solitario
    y abres mares, solsticios,
    haciendo amanecer un sol nuevo
    en las vidas y en tu boca
    que es aurora de labios
    como pétalos tú haces
    amanecer toda pasión
    mortal mirifica y sálvifica.

    RYAN Reynolds
    Poema de oscar Portela

    Esa es la presición de la escultura
    que siempre estuvo allí
    para adórala en carne y mármol
    y agotarnos en ella.


    Ryan Reynolds el Dios
    por Oscar Portela

    Oh tu mirada que penetra
    y cala, tus sensuales labios
    donde liban mis labios
    los sueños de lo eterno,
    tu magnifica frente
    de Partenón abierta hacia
    los Dioses, hazme tu esclavo,
    libérame de la osadía
    de ser mortal matándome
    de amor y de pecados.


    Salvatore
    poema de Oscar Portela

    Antiguo y siempre "recomenzado"
    mar, - amor- oh Salvatore, redímenos
    entre tus brazos
    de todo tiempo los tesoro ocultos
    entre los pliegues
    de tu cuerpo.

    David Galindo
    poema de Oscar Portela

    Amanece. El día efímero
    se eterniza en tu cuerpo.


    Andersson Schneider
    poema de Oscar Portela

    Infinita belleza
    jamás abandonada
    a la intemperie
    tú lo devoras todo
    y nunca eres igual
    a tus espejos.

    Daniel Crouch y el mito
    poema de Oscar Portela

    Solo nombrarlo nos borraría
    desta tierra
    tanta la plenitud
    de su belleza.


    Andrew
    poema de Oscar Portela

    Apolo no retorna. Andrew es su
    templo y su via: su cuerpo es la lira
    del dios de vida y muerte.


    Daniel Costa
    poema de Oscar Portela

    Ni las doradas Islas de Angra
    donde brillan las perlas
    en el azul del mar
    caben en la belleza del mancebo
    que exhala del aliento de Eros
    en su naciente y ya madura aurora,
    el incontaminado aliento de su sexo.
