Quite possibly the sexiest man alive, fashion icon and now director Tom Ford, stated this in the December/January 2010 issue of Interview Magazine: "For most photographers today—I won’t necessarily mention names—you see a picture of 10 people in a magazine, and none of those people were shot together. They take the best head from here, stick it on the best body from that shot, move that over there, and you fill in, which is fine, but that’s a different kind of art—an impressionistic way of interpreting something. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing, but it’s a different way of working."  Read the rest of the interview by director Gus Van Sant here.

My guess is he's referring to financially-troubled celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz? But wait, wasn't Leibovitz the same cut-and-paste photographer who shot this iconic photo of Ford for Vanity Fair with Scarlett Johansson and Keira KnightleyHmm.

Ford is still actively promoting his Oscar-contender film A Single Man, which is also his directorial debut.  Click here to see more pics I got of Ford, in addition to the one above, plus a review from the TIFF screening and press conference of the film back in September.
