'Us' Calls Out Fatties With Their 'Hunk To Chunk' Photographic Retrospective

For the first time in recorded history, we actually felt sorry for poor chubster Kevin Federline yesterday. After all, as those golfing pictures revealed, that he's now sporting a Buddha big enough to hamper his golf swing. But apparently the slideshow-happy folks at Us Weekly didn't share our sympathies; in the wake of the revelation of Fat K-Fed, they've posted a slideshow featuring other formerly thin celebs who've gone from "hunk to chunk" in recent years. But being the stubborn argumentative types that we are, we're going to have to disagree with their take on all of these pound-packers' alleged downfalls. Sure, Clay Aiken's no prize these days (was he ever?), and Alec Baldwin certainly looked sexier in Glengarry Glen Ross than he currently does on 30 Rock, but a few members of Us' Fatso Club actually look far hotter with some extra meat on their bones. Our rebuttals, with pictorial evidence, after the jump.

Here, we present the choices on Us' list which we happen to agree with; these guys either went a teensy bit overboard over the holidays or, in Tom Cruise's case, simply haven't been following L. Ron Hubbard's highly scientific detox plan:

But! We happen to find these so-called "chunks" far finer now that they've gone from stick-thin, skinny-jeans-wearing hipster wannabes to, well, the closest they're capable of coming to looking like a Man:

John Travolta, a controversial decision for sure, but we think Now is preferable if only for the absence of that horrendous hairpiece:
