Does Lance's Love Life Hurt His Reputation?

Does Lance's Love Life Hurt His Reputation?

Lance Armstrong and Kate Hudson managed to squeeze in dinner and drinks at the museum in addition to their tennis time this weekend, while the NY Times was comparing Lance the philanthropist to Lance the serial dater. The question is whether his personal life gets in the way of his work as a role model and spokesman for fighting cancer, so what do you think — does Lance's playboy lifestyle hurt his reputation?

I don't mind a healthy single guy dating women he finds attractive. I DO mind seeing a man's wife and children stand by him through cancer and negative press, only to get ditched as soon as he gets a taste of celebrity. That's not a man "living strong" to me.

Honestly, it is no ones business. However he has never been my hero and I have always liked her until I see her with him.

It might. I think he dates celebs to keep his name out there. I'm sure it doesn't hurt that these women are gorgeous either.

NYT articte sorry...

I certainly thought so, even before the NY article...there must be something to this. I just do not take him seriously anymore. He has kids for crying out loud. He should not be dating like he is a 17 year old boy, nor date people in that age range ( Hello Olsen twin). Yuck, he has no credibility for me for some reason anymore.

i can't believe that the fact he has gone out with different women would at all be an issue for his reputation. it's not like he's having one night stands with prostitutes. his philanthropic work stands alone. oh and it's true kate does look like her son without eye makeup.

You must be joking. The news is that Lance Armstrong is hurting his reputation?! Impossible. The man has survived against all odds CANCER!! He dedicates his time and effort to a CURE FOR CANCER! If Lance wants to go out for a few beers with a beautiful and talented actress like Kate Hudson, who the Bleep are you to judge? Let him live his life, he's earned more than that!

I think it damages the reputation of the girl who's with him (at the moment) more then his own reputation. Same with John Mayer. Simply because I'd expect them to be smarter then that!! Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson look like little girls who fell too hard and the guys look like jerks taking them along for the ride. I don't know why - but all the pictures (of both couples) always look like the girl is trying harding then the guy (and that they care more). Obviously, I could be way wrong, that's just how I see the pictures.

I agree SilverLining. I am more disappointed because i thought he was above the whole hollywood scene

I really respected him as a cancer survivor and athlete, but after dumping his ex-wife for Sheryl Crow, then going around dating any celebrity that would sleep with him, I'm disappointed. I thought Hollywood wouldn't phase him, but one ball or not, that man is still a dog.

I don't think he some great guy anyway so I don't think it's hurt his reputation with me. I haven't been fond of him since he left his wife who stuck with him through cancer and his child to date rockstars and actresses. I don't think that points to signs of good character, but that's my personal opinion. I'm glad that some people don't care about such stuff and are stillinspired by his story because I think he may be helping some truly worthwhile people

Lance is single and dating like any other single guy, and yeah less than 5 women in 4 years is NOT a Playboy. It's just a big deal because he and the ladies are celebs. The guy has been through so much in his life and is doing so much good for soooo many people, let the man have some fun for Pete's sake.

to be honest, i don't think that it hurts his reputation at all. his choices are a little interesting at times (i.e. the olsen) but being with sheryl crow and now kate hudson - those are two GREAT women.

Being a cancer survivor myself I was blown away by Lance and his story. His book is BEYOND inspiring. I refuse to comment on the "doping" rumors. They're just that...rumors...! I will say though that Kate can't seem to commit...very sad considering she shuffles her kid between potential step-dads CONSTANTLY!! As for a coupling...they just look WIERD together! Doesn't work at all for me!!

I don't really care much for his love life. Never paid attention to it.

He would have to exciting, mysterious and handsome to be considered a playboy. He is none of those. I think people are put off by the way he handled his first marriage. He just conveys this sort of male desperation of having to serial date (aka bang) a slew of chicks. As far as Kate, she just embraces hippie vaginal freedom.

I think calling him a 'playboy' is generous. He has had a couple girlfriends...who cares?
emilyagogo emilyagogo 9 years
I'm agreeing with many above - what about his dating life makes him a playboy? He doesn't date any more than normal, and it's not like he's out dropping engagement rings in the laps of all his girlfriends. I think it's just unfortunate that people assume anything about anyone through photos - and all we really know of celebrities comes to us in just that way...or through the tabloids. Just imagine what sort of "reputation" you'd develop if the world could see the contents of your camera's memory stick after a fun and rowdy weekend...

They've both been dating others like crazy since they had their respective divorces. I think their equals in that respect.
