post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
For Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Larry Ellison in high tech for their incredible discernment, intelligence, savoir faire that made high tech a household name.

In cinema Joel Coen for his incredible talent.

In music Wynton Masalis for his knowledge about Jazz and his incredible talent.

Joel Coen would get my vote, or any other Joel for that matter.

Jane, shouldn't you be posting outrageous beefcake pics in this thread?

Me of course. If you like 6 feet 4 inch tall gorilla analogues. Yes, I can touch my fingers to my knees without stooping. And I can't knucklewalk, unforuntely. I can do it in my dreams, for some reason. Talking to a dream-character, wlaking down the street, he's on his feet only, I'm 4-footed and loving it.

As someone secure enough in his sexuality/masculinity, I can say the following without appearing to have "joined the other team":

I don't know about "most beautiful" or whatever, but say I was in an horrible accident and had to have my face and all reconstructed and I was given the choice of who I could look like; I'd be more more than happy to return to single life looking like Alec Baldwin.

He's a handsome enough guy with a bitchin' head of hair. Has that old-time movie star look to him and is still a fairly manly "guy's guy".

Plus, my ex roommate Gina used to google over his eyes and chest hair all the time and she was a TOTAL hottie. So if SHE got all torqued up over him, then I'm guessing that's not a bad way to go through life.



I can certainly see why women would dig on him, Harrison Ford and George Clooney more than I can some other supposed "sex symbols" who exhibit more of a foppish, pretty-boy vibe, such as Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Hugh Grant, Tom Cruise, Pierce Brosnan, etc.

Pencil necks.

Be a MAN!

George Clooney is the most handsome. He's got a good look, semi-rugged and looks good with stubble.

For "beautiful" I'd have to go with Johnny Depp, he's beeyooootiful.

I've always thought that Beck was quite pretty; he's also got a great sense of style IMO.

Paul, if those guys you named all qualify as "foppish", then the rest of us might as well be Zsa Zsa Gabor! :eek: I mean, one of them even plays James Bond.

They are all, however, crummy actors. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

Assuming you mean Wynton MaRsalis...as a trumpet player I don't really like his Jazz. His best quality is his legit technique (classical is the term most would use).

He also plays with about zero expression.

Well Pierce Brosnan always had that swoopy soap opera hair that was just a bit TOO in place, plus his head pivots on top of one of the most skinny, "barely there" pencil necks I've ever seen!

I said from the beginning (with "Goldeneye") that for the otherwise handsome Brosnan to pull off a good James Bond, he should work our just a bit and get a LITTLE bit of a neck to him, in addition to maybe a shorter, more clipped hair cut.

He looked a lot more rugged in "The World Is Not Enough", but those first two movies, I couldn't get past how much he looked like a foo-foo necktie salesman at some posh, snooty men's clothier.



I've always thought Brad Pitt looked like a woman or a Duran Duran reject.

Hugh Grant? Oh God...don't even get me started. Floppy-banged, stammering doofus who - like Joe Pesci and Meg Ryan - apparently possesses one level of acting skill and can only play one type of character...OVER AND OVER AND OVER...

The rest (Cruise, Damon, etc.) just have something about them that, to me anyway, keeps them from appearing handsome in a manly sort of way. They either look too feminine or too boyish.

Although some women dig that look, so that's cool.

My wife has a thing for Jon Bon Jovi. He's actually a pretty cool guy... much improved over the "80s" version with the teased, back-combed big hair and hint of makeup that most of the rockers had at the time.

'cates has a point.

If I were going to be facially reconstructed (somewhere other than in a hockey rink) as someone else, Harrison Ford (in his younger days) or Brad Pitt would probably do the trick as far as becoming a chic-magnet. As it is, I only seem to attract my existing SO and a bunch of puck-bunnies...some of whom are hot enough, others of whom make me fear for my life.

Wait a minute, 'scates, you're telling me that hot women like all that chest hair on Alec Baldwin?! And I've been hiding my rug all this time! Seriously, though he apparently has a big temper, he also has a great sense of humor. Frankly, he's always been one of the better SNL guest stars to have on.

(even weirder: both "weirder" and "Baldwin" are apparently in the Apple spell-check dictionary)

Me? I don't see the appeal in big chiseled monkey boys, like so many soap opera actors. On the other extreme, I don't see the appeal in waif-ish androgynous boys like Leonardo DiCaprio either.

Where are the beefcake pics?
post #21 of 38
Baldwin has been, consistently, the best host SNL has ever had. He seems cool in that he doesn't mind sending up or mocking his studly image or looking less than cool and suave (example: he played Charles Nelson Reilly in an "Inside the Actors Studio" sketch and he totally went for it, which I admired).

Not to mention, Pete's Schwety Balls. "They're quiet salty...do you like the taste of my balls?"



And - like Kevin Spacey - he does good impersonations too, which I'm always a big fan of.

But I've heard about his temper and all and I DEFINITELY don't agree with his politics and so forth.

About the chest hair thing, Gina and I were watching "Malice" one night on TNT or whatever and there's a scene where he has his shirt off and I'm like "dude, buy a weed whacker for God's sake!"

Then I look over at her and she's all "DAMN! I'd like to run my fingers through THAT! Mmmm-mmmm...I'd climb on him for a couple of days...".

Women...

What...was Spacey one of those Hollywood types that said they would move to Canada if Bush were elected? He doesn't seem the type, but what the hell do I know...the guy pretends to be someone else for a living.

No, I don't think so. Think it was Baldwin, Cher and a few others.

Who, by the way, NEVER did.

Don't tease us, people.

I had the pleasure to speak (sort of) to Michael Douglas a few weeks ago, and it has to be said that I know understand why my mother thinks he's so nice. Although he spoils it all by smoking. Stupid habit.
Hugh Grant on the other hand. Total mazda. But all the women there were more bothered about him than MD. Although it has to be said, MD chatted up my academic mother three years ago, and the papers had a field day with the eightwomen he slept with that week.

Why am I not surprised that only one woman has posted in this thread?

"Gentleman" Jim Rice was a handsome fella in his prime, George Clooney is classically handsome, and D'Angelo is very handsome.

For their contributions... let's see, most of the men I admire for that are dead. I'll nominate Woz.

We've been hoodwinked, fellas!

This "Jane" chick (yeah, right...) comes in and gets the ball rolling and before long, we're cooing over Clooney like we're at a slumber party.



Meanwhile, "Jane" is sitting back and laughing her ass off at our "well, I'm not gay - not that there's anything wrong with it, of course - but if I had a gun to my head and was forced to fellate one guy in Hollywo..." shenanigans.



Notice, she ain't been back. She's sitting there in her flannel shirt and meticulously recording all this for our future embarrassment.

We've been hornswaggled! Good googley-moogley!

:eek:

I always thought Cary Grant was "The Man".

Jimmy Stewart was a beautiful guy.

Ok, I'll pitch in...Hugh Jackman.



He was Wolverine in X-Men. Also in some romantic caper with Meg Ryan out now.

He can act, sing and dance. Seems to be a good Aussie bloke. He was on SNL last weekend and was funny. Oh, and the girls go nuts over him.

Ok, this may be cliche but Johnny Depp is the most gorgeous man on the planet! He keeps getting better looking with age.
Brad Pitt is a god as well.

David Bowie is also a damn handsome man. It's amazing how good he has managed to keep himself looking all these years. A friend of mine says that he has had plastic surgery. I don't think so though. I could be wrong.

heh, listen to me...I'm babbling on like a school girl
*tee hee, giggle giggle*

Oh yeah, I'm a hottie as well.

There are very few men I'd have any desire to stare at for more then a few seconds, but Kevin Bacon really is a work of art. Not quite as beautiful as a German Shepherd or a Husky, but definitely nice to look at. Axl Rose is pretty good looking and I thought the singer Jackson Browne was very handsome when he was younger but I haven't seen him recently.

Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, and in a charsmatic sort of way, Robbie Williams. That guy has come a hell of a way from the boy band he was in... heck I cant even remember it anymore.
