Eli Roth shows off 21-year-old GF Peaches Geldof “like a trophy”

Labels: ,


Back in the post-Oscar coverage, we mentioned that Inglourious Basterds star (and Hostel writer-director) Eli Roth was now dating British “socialite” Peaches Geldof. Beyond the age difference (Roth is 37 years old, Peaches turned 21 less than two weeks ago), there is a very large gap in actual careers and… let’s call it “worthiness”. Eli is pretty established as a writer/director, and now actor. He’s got famous friends like Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt. He’s pretty hot, in a quirky/sexy nice-Jewish-boy way.

Now, Peaches Geldof is not really much of anything. Her father is Bob Geldof, the dude who organized Live Aid, and is generally in competition with Bono for the most self-righteous wanker out there. Peaches doesn’t have a career beyond “sometimes model” and “sometimes writer” and “celebutante”. She’s a professional party girl, basically, who sometimes slums it with paying gigs to give herself the whiff of legitimacy. She’s Lindsay Lohan without the child stardom. Ugh.

Well, anyway, it’s looking less and less like Eli and Peaches were just some random one-night fling. They’ve been spotted everywhere since the Oscars, and now we’re getting tabloid reports claiming nonsense like “Peaches wants to make this relationship last.” Shut up, Peaches!

""Eli Roth and London party girl Peaches Geldof have been the talk of Hollywood lately!

The duo kissed and cuddled throughout the Vanity Fair Oscars bash in LA, and the next day Eli, 37, and 21-year-old Peaches, daughter of British music legend Bob Geldof, were spotted smooching at a Sunset Blvd. traffic light.

“Peaches has always dated rocker types before,” says an insider. “Eli is her first kind of normal guy. She says she wants it to last.”

But 17-years-old Eli may not be taking the romance quite as seriously, says another source.

“He shows Peaches off like she’s a trophy. I think Eli’s just thrilled to have such a cute, young girlfriend!”""

Young, definitely. Cute? No comment. I actually thought Peaches was unattractive until this batch of photos - now that I‘m seeing her from different angles, I don‘t think she‘s unattractive. She’s working a sort of plain/pretty vibe. But she looks so much like her father, it’s a little spooky. But that’s enough bashing of this girl. Though she’s already a divorcee, I’m going to lay the blame for this dating fiasco right on Eli’s shoulders. What the hell are you thinking, dude? And what’s with all of these reports that you like really young girls, like, inappropriately young? You’re 37 years old. Grow up enough that you’re not picking up chicks out of high school. We have a name for those dudes. We call them Jeremy Piven.
