And we'd have to disagree.

In an interview for Mr Porter's The Journal, fashion mogul and Hollywood director Tom Ford made a confession sure to be startling to anyone familiar with his provocative work.

"I feel less sexy, now that I'm a father," he told the digital men's magazine, adding that "stopping drinking made me feel less sexy, too." However, when it comes to Ford, Hollywood's beloved go-to for all body-baring creations (think: Rihanna's sparkly nipple dress), we have a feeling that "less sexy" is a relative term when you're a leader in all things hot and steamy.

Among other revelations, including his affinity for pre-6 a.m. baths and his dislike of any warm beverages, Ford revealed that his new lifestyle, while less sexy, has been helpful overall in keeping the 54-year-old's waistline trim. Well, that, as well as a strict sushi diet and an unofficial no-eating-in-the-office policy.

"My assistants think I don’t like people who eat,” he joked. “It’s true I don’t like to see or smell food in the office. But I don’t like the staff to leave the office, either. I’ve never actually seen anyone here eat. Perhaps they eat under their desks, when I’m in here doing interviews."
