MAN ABOUT TOWN

Aaron Johnson is on the cover of the new issue of the magazine. The actor would probably be the Justin Bieber of the UK if he wasn’t a 19-year-old engaged to a 43-year-old, who’s carrying his baby. In the words of Megan Burns, “ughhhh such a waste.”

BUT he’s still nice to look at. Watch Man About Town‘s video of the shoot.

LOVE shares these banned 1995 Calvin Klein Jeans ads. God, the guy’s voice makes me so uncomfortable.

Is that a young Bijou Phillips?
