Hot Or Not: Tiger Woods Shirtless On Vanity Fair

Submitted by on January 4, 2010 – 11:09 am5 Comments

A shirtless, somber-looking Tiger Woods is the cover star of Vanity Fair magazine’s February 2010 issue.

The feature is a “full portfolio” of “never-before-seen photos of a raw, unguarded Woods” taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz.

Here’s an excerpt from the press release:

Pulitzer Prize winner Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights and, most recently, co-author of Shooting Stars with LeBron James, reflects on Woods’s downfall and what his future may hold.

Woods “had always been the bionic man in terms of personality, controlling to a fault,” Bissinger writes. He calls the pre-scandal Woods “the perfect man and pitchman for our imperfect times, a charming non-person,” noting that “with Woods, everything was crafted to produce a man of nothing, with no interior–non-threatening and non-controversial.”

But “in the end it was the age-old clash of image versus reality…. He deluded himself into thinking he could be something that he wasn’t: untouchable. The greatest feat of his career is that he managed to get away with it for so long in public, the bionic man instead of the human one who hit a fire hydrant.”
