Benicio Del Toro Holds A Naked, Unconscious Woman On A Magazine Cover (NSFW)

Rachel Krause / December 11, 2012

Can we all agree that Benicio Del Toro is the hottest? Okay, now that that’s out of the way ― there are two narrative scenarios that could plausibly have led to this L’Officiel Hommes cover. One, he’s a hero! Our distinguished knight-in-a-Dolce & Gabbana-suit Benicio discovered this girl, naked and vulnerable, perhaps in the forest, jungle or along the beach, and has come to her rescue. Which is sexist. (However, Benicio, if you feel it might be appropriate at any time to come rescue me, I would hardly object.) The other: he has murdered, bludgeoned, drugged, or otherwise rendered her unconscious himself. Not necessarily sexist, but definitely terrible. Which story do you prefer? Either way, I don’t suspect the magazine will be stirring up much controversy with this photograph. L’Officiel is French, after all.
