Who Is This Handsome Man?

I bet you’re never going to guess who this handsome man is. I will give you a clue. He’s famous.

It’s Anton Chekhov. Okay, he’s not a movie star, but I still find him very attractive. Seriously. Look at how attractive he is. And if that’s not enough, his friend Maxim Gorky once said:

“Banality was Chekhov’s personal enemy.  He waged war on it throughout his life…  Before him, no one was able to paint so remorselessly truthful and shameful a tableau of people’s dreary existence in the despondent chaos of bourgeois mundanity”.

So, basically, he was handsome and really cool. You should probably marry him. And get a lapdog.

    Omg he’s so hot. He’s pretty much how I imagine all Russian writers: sexy. But then I look up “pictures of Tolstoy” and am SO disappointed.

    Thanks for not disappointing, Anton.

    Knew he was a Russian writer! Guessed the wrong one, though. :(

    A hot writer who looks down on everyone. That sounds great.
