Favorite Leading Men


Recommended Posts

When I was a child I loved musicals and classic American movies. I've seen them all. Before the age of 10 I liked Cary Grant and had a slight preference for Gene Kelly over Fred Astaire.

 

These days, I'm not sure. Daniel Craig looked really hunky and tasty in Casino Royale.

Never saw that thread. Besides I make a distinction between favorite leading men and "bonk list". :lol:

 

My bonk list would be more Mediterranean, African and Latin American. I'd take Cary Grant, Gene Kelly and Daniel Craig off the list.

 

Very good point - my bonk list is way different than my leading man list. I would bonk Gabriel Byrne in a heartbeat, but I would want to seduce Franchot Tone... :lol:

I'm fond of both Dana Andrews and Cary Grant.

 

As for today's crop, Johnny Depp, Jack Black (!).....and tho I've never seen any of his films, I find Vin Diesel quite attractive. Also Zach Braff.

 

As you can see, I go for humor and personality in characters. As for Depp, he is fascinating. I respect his choice of roles. He always seems to be having a great time.

 

And here's a twist to the list: If I were gay, I'd be hot for Mariska Hargitay. And, interestingly, like many other gal friends when asked to compare the "L Word" characters, I would choose the slutty yet sensitive Shane (Katherine Moennig) as my hottie.

Sooooooooooo, on second thought I'd reconsider Daniel Craig. :lol:

 

I have a weakness for British leading men, but most would not be on the bonk list. Gerard Butler, YES! I know, I know, occassionaly he has this Tom Jones cheesy thing going on when he has a bad stylist or maybe the wrong woman in his life. But when he's more toned down he's incredibly hot.

 

Like as leading men, but not on bonk list:

Ewan MacGregor

Christian Bale

Jude Law

 

 

Maybe:

Clive Owen (but the paunch in Children of Men is a bit of a turn off for me)

Charles Boyer

The young Rex Harrison

Gerard Depardieu (I have no problem with paunch. If I'm forgiving, may they be, too).

Cary Grant, but I see he's spoken for

Gene Kelly, yes

George Clooney

Burt Lancaster

Peter O'Toole circa "Florence of Arabia"

Well, Christopher Walken as "The Continental" might be stretching it a bit....but I guess none of us could really resist such a charmer offering us the requisite MAssage and glass of "cham-pon-ya." :lol:

Oh, good Lord, I've fallen under your spell. Except for Daniel Day Lewis - - he's way too prissy and mean spirited. Howse come nobody has mentioned my favorite two: Rutger Hauer and Wilford Brimley.

 

And, I recently threw a fit when an actress called herself an actor. Little too butch for me. Until I realized we no longer call our women doctors what they were last century: doctresses. Somehow losing actress doesn't bother me so much anymore.
