omg....I've loved this man since I was 13 years old!! he's soooo effing sexy I can't stand it!
He's very nice looking, imo, and has a smoking hot wife (Natalie Imbruglia). I just love those two together.
He looks delicious in the OP I want to be his guitar.
I've never found him particularly attractive, but I am a big fan of his.
One of my best friends used to be completely obessed with him, and as she tried to be more and more like him, she even began developing anorexia just to have one more thing in common with his past. Crazy teenage shit we ended up talking her out of...
my ex-spanish teacher used to teach Daniel and the rest of the Silverchair band members in NSW. She said they use to practice their music at the school during lunch break but they were never any good.
But what the hell i love Silverchair but i'm not really liking the Dissociatives.
Alicia Silverstone: "I think that the film Clueless was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it's true lightness."
He looks so hot there. Love most of his music too.
His interview was raw and honest with Denton about his years of anorexia hell.
Anorexia Almost Killed Me: Daniel Johns

He's a much loved rock'n'roller who's married to one of the world's most beautiful women. But singer Daniel Johns has finally revealed the horror behind his teenage anorexia - a condition which nearly left him dead.
Johns has admitted he was close to suicide a number of times as he battled the eating disorder in his late teens. It is the first time the singer has spoken at length about his anorexia, a problem which is affecting increasing numbers of teenage boys in Australia.
Speaking about his hatred for food during the worst stages of his illness, Johns told ABC interviewer Andrew Denton: "I could somehow convince myself that apples contained razorblades and wouldn't go to restaurants because I thought every chef in the world wanted to poison me.
"It [food] was just the enemy. I just hated the look of it, the smell of it. If anyone talked about it, I'd leave the room."
In an interview which airs on Enough Rope tomorrow night, Johns gives blow-by-blow details of his psychological suffering, which prompted doctors to warn him repeatedly he was going to die. At his lowest weight, the singer was just 50 kilograms.
"Kinda when I stopped eating was on our second album, just as it felt like everything was so out of control," he told Denton in the pretaped interview. "The reason I think [I did it] was just to gain control.
"I have a theory because I was being beaten up a lot by people outside of school, it was almost like if I could make myself sick enough they'd take sympathy on me."
Johns became so seriously ill he was treated for anorexia nervosa, but it took him some time to take doctors' warnings seriously. "I don't know how I pulled myself out of it," he told Denton. "I think I definitely got scared by the second or third time a doctor told me I was dying."
Johns said he wrote the songs for Silverchair's Neon Ballroom (released in 1999) in the midst of his anorexia battle. "I wrote . . . Neon Ballroom in that time where I hated music, really everything about it, I hated it. But I couldn't stop doing it and I felt like a slave to it."
The singer admitted he had considered suicide. "There was three or four years of my life where I hated myself and you know, would have quite happily ended it. But I'm just not like that anymore . . . like [I've] got this amazing life, amazing wife."
These days Johns, now 26, is happily married to singer Natalie Imbruglia and preparing for a tour with his new band the Dissociatives, formed with Paul Mac.
He is the picture of good health, which is remarkable given his private battle with anorexia and his relatively public battle against reactive arthritis only a few years later.
"The arthritis just went from bad to worse and went through all the bones in my body, through my spine, up into my neck," he told Denton. "I just couldn't move . . . I couldn't have a shower because it felt like I was cracking my spine."
After more than 12 months of rehabilitation treatment, Johns made a full recovery. He married Imbruglia at a ceremony near Port Douglas earlier this year and credits her with providing emotional support.
"It just makes everything more pleasurable when you've got someone that emotionally is there to rely on," he told Denton.
Johns, who said he is likely to record another album with Silverchair, will start his first tour with the Dissociatives this week, with shows starting in Tasmania on Tuesday night. He will be back on stage in Sydney on June 19 and 20.
First of all, DAMN is that man GORGEOUS!
Just PIPING hot!
Anyways, I think Daniel was very courageous for being so open in sharing his personal struggle with anorexia...(believe it or not there are STILL people today who believe that boys and men can NOT get eating disorders...wrong! In fact while around 10% of ED sufferers are males- the numbers of males developing EDs are growing...) but yeah, anyways back to Daniel. I think he hoped that his coming out with his anorexia would help encourage more men to come out of their 'eating disorder closet.'
But bless him, Daniel is so beautiful and he is a fantastic song writer! His lyrics are truly beautiful and so emotional...so raw and real...that's what I love about him!
By the way, I LOVE Ana's song, (If you haven't heard it or seen the video go to youtube.com and type in 'Ana's Song'- It's so touching and...there really aren't many words to describe the song...it's just...breathtaking imo and as someone who has suffered an ED I can relate to the song...)
Anyways, I'm done rambling! lol...
The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.
I am listening to Freak right now! Love it.
Holy crap he grew up! I had such a crush on him when I was a teenager.
hello lover *sigh*
"Don't think that sticking your boobs out and trying to look fuckable will help. Remember your in a rock and roll band. It's not "Fuck Me", It's "Fuck You!"
