What Does It Mean To Be “Whipped”?
No, not literally, silly — like, in the sense where you’re a man and your lady has you wrapped around her little finger…or something? We ask because GQ has put together such a lovely slideshow of famous men who are, in their view, whipped by their wives (or husbands, in the case of Elton John and David Furnish). Included on the list are Guy Ritchie (Madonna got him into Kaballah and, maybe, strap-ons), Ashton Kutcher (he gushed about wife, Demi Moore, in interviews, the wimp), Ben Stiller (Christine Taylor always scores roles in his terrible movies), and John Edwards (Elizabeth defended him when Ann Coulter called him a f*ggot). Honestly, we don’t get it — is it that the men are very supportive of their wives’ endeavors? That they genuinely think they’re cool, talented, and funny? That they don’t get to make all the decisions? Or maybe it’s that they’re super smart, as is especially the case with Catherine Zeta-Jones, who arranged for a pre-nup before marrying Michael Douglas that ensured her $5 million dollars if he ever cheated.
