Okay, it's trash time. Does Julia Roberts' mouth scare the bejeezus out of you? Do you think Brad Pitt is actually a cleverly disguised gorilla, or Mr. Mojo himself? Do you pine for the days when men were men and girls were girls (allow me the patronizing premise, for the sake of the post, mm-kay, girls? ) when Dominique Sanda and Claudia Cardinale (insert suitable N. American analogues) exuded poised, exquisite femininity and Cary Grant and Marcello Mastroianni cut the figure of fully-formed masculinity? Or do you think men and women should both ideally look like fourteen-year old boys, as so many do now?

Actors, pop stars, your next-door neighbour, Fidel Castro, whoever. Who's hot, who's not. "Dish," as would say our incomparable moderatrix.

Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Matthew Broderick (in, for example, LadyHawke, starring also Rutger Hauer), Matt Damon, and, um, Lukas Haas. I forget the rest of the cute male actors out there.

If I HAD to name an asskicking female actor who looks halfway decent, Winona Ryder would top the list. She's like a female Rutger Hauer - always bringing just the right smartassness to her characters.

I like Winona Ryder and Sandra Bullock. As for the men, Sean Connery, Sam Neill and Mel Gibson. The younger guys I like are Matthew Broderick (especially in Ladyhawke) and Brad Pitt (in Meet Mr. Black). I've always adored Gene Kelly and he's still my all-time favourite dancer.

You've both mentioned Brad Pitt. I have to say I was not being totally facetious about Brad Pitt looking like a gorilla. He's like one of those visual psychology drawings -- you know, now it looks like a duck, now it looks like a rabbit. Sometimes he looks like crap, nostrils flat and flaring like a gorilla. Did you see that ultra-hideous Details cover of him in that wasted party-animal pose? Other times he looks hot, quite virile unlike most of the pretty-boy actors today. If that's your taste.

So much of how these people look is actually make-up and shots. In real life they often look like crap. It's interesting that N. American media do not expose this more, they like to play up the sexiness -- it creates more buying behaviour. In Japan there is a sort of gossip feature that specializes in snapping celebs as they come out of their home first thing in the morning after a raucous party, e.g., looking like complete sh*t. I think it would be healthier if we had that kind of scepticism. But less pleasurable, to be sure.

All-time female Alphas: Jeanne Moreau and Melina Mercouri, who convinced me, anyway, that if a girl could smile and purr (and sometimes growl) the way they did, then maybe she could let up a little on trying to turn herself out as a perfect pretty objet.

(Well -- I say they convinced me -- I still wish I looked like Audrey Hepburn -- but then I remember Sophia -- or Julie Christie, who always looked as though she'd slept in her clothes and looked great anyway -- and I take refuge in variety, maybe.)

So rasmus, Dominique and Claudia, eh? That helps to locate you a little ... (Don't get me wrong -- good place, good place, nobody gonna mess with you over those guys ... )

Men. Ezio Pinza in an open-necked shirt: skdadl out for count. (In real life he died last year -- skdadl still in mourning -- but you can still see him sing This Nearly Was Mine in South Pacific, or at his absolute meltdown best in that movie set in Venice where he courts Katherine Hepburn, who's playing a middle-aged spinster -- anybody?)

Morse (John Thaw) -- lives there a woman with soul so dead that she does not long to save him from himself?

I wish I could get a crush on a young hunk, but I just haven't seen one yet who can give even Cary Grant a run for his money. Tom Cruise, e.g., just looks like a blank slate to me -- Ralph Fiennes is getting there, ok ... Maybe no one's giving them the kind of lines the older actors could really play with -- they all seem to me to have the perfect pretty objet problem: where's the spark?

Oh I like Sophia too, skdadl.... I like most of the French/Italian ones. But I don't like how Sophia's aged, she seems spiritually depleted, not enriched. But there are no screen women now like that, you just can't find 'em. Can you?

Ditto on Tom Cruise, btw. Don't really like the way he looks, don't know why, just my taste. (Despite what I said about Brad P. above I'd have to come down on the "hot" side) Among the other young actors I like Johnny Depp not so much for his looks as for the fact he is a damn good actor who hasn't compromised too much on the quality of his work. We can't say the same for Keanu Reeves, can we? A certain kind of eye candy but not a good actor. (BTW, he's not gay. Just to clear that up.) Sorry, Kea. I used to buy pasta from him when he worked in the pasta store around the corner from my house when I was a kid. I remember he seemed kinda scary, don't know why. He was a little heftier back then, too, didn't work out I guess. Then he became famous. Who woulda thunk it?

I see you've mentioned Fiennes -- yeah, the older, with age, may look good. The younger (Joseph) gives me bad vibes. Don't know why.

The Good lookin' Guys
Brad Pitt
Gale Harold Queer as Folk
Adam Beach North of 60, Smoke Signals
Gary Oldman I like the looks and style of the parts he plays Dracula, Sid Vicious, Beethoven and the dope dealer in True Romance
Ian Hanamansing Canada NowAverage lookin' dude but always dresses sharp.
Not so cute
Loyd Axeworthy. I saw him in real life once. He was short and has a huge pot belly.
Most people in the world. That is real life. Short, fat, big, skinney, moles, pimples, B.O., sagging breasts, bere guts,greasy hair etc.
Good looking females
Laurie Brown On the Arts with LB
Tina keeper North of 60
Pamela Wallin cute with a warm TV personality
Adrian Clarkson "I'm Adrian Clarkson and your're not"
I watch way to much CBC.
Most people in the world. Just look at them. The little old ladies, the hard working men and women on the job. Babies teenagers, geeks, nerds,the wino on the street as he or she picks through the trash, the big noses, big feet, bald heads, tatoos, scars, wheelchairs, so on and so forth.
Smoking is not cute at all, by anyone.

Can any of you think of any physically attractive female's with revolutionary tendencies? No offense to Mother Jones or Emma Goldman, but they're not exactly my idea of drop-dead gorgeous. Whereas on the males side you find Che and Kerouac and the ones Eddie mentioned.

I guess Ani Difranco's pretty rebellious and I've always thought she was attractive, but are there any others?

Oooh, a shallow topic! Regarding the whole attractiveness thing, I find that as a prerequisite the beautiful people must in most cases do or create something that I find interesting or intriguing. Ergo, somebody like Pamela Anderson may as well be a bog monster to these eyes. Mira Sorvino is attractive and a fine actress, but whatever happened to her?? She seems to have dropped off the face of the planet. I loved Kate Hudson in Almost Famous (although the fact that she married that anorexic-looking Jesus clone from the Black Crowes is unsettling to say the least), and Catherine Zeta-Jones is a classic beauty (her Welshness is a factor too...accents melt me into a puddle of goo for whatever reason). For a time after seeing them live a while back, I had a mad crush on the Dandy Warhols keyboard player, Zia something. Oh, and of course Ani DiFranco is attractive, gang! Regarding that other gender: Rufus Wainwright is a swashbuckling fellow. Kevin Spacey is handsome in an everyman kind of way...is that a weird choice? David Bowie and John Lennon back in the day (although Bowie doesn't look bad at fifty-whatever now). Kerouac - at least he died pretty, which probably makes for a better book jacket. There has to be more on both sides, my brain is just temporarily vaporlocked.

As we celebrated our nation this weekend, I'd be remiss if I didn't proudly state that as a kid, my first real crush was on the Caitlin character from that venerable angst-ridden slab of teenaged Canadiana, Degrassi Junior High. True patriot love!

Obviously I'm not putting her into the same political stratosphere as Emma Goldman or Mother Jones, but Sarah Polley could be counted as a neo-lefty stunner.

Oh, and last year I sat directly behind Ian Hanomansing at a Canucks hockey game. I accidentally kicked his seat a few times, but alas, the Corporation's can't-miss-kid handled it with outward class and a doubtless inward-looking irritation.

I think it illustrates how shallow I really am when I can post something this long-winded regarding this particular topic!!

Sarah Polley: yup.
Caitlyn from Degrassi, oh my Caitlyn.
Spike from Degrassi (possible fodder for a new topic: did you know that "Degrassi: the Next Generation" will feature Spike's now teenage daughter? It will also feature an android who yearns to be human and the first ever Klingon in Starfleet. Oh wait, that's "Star Trek: the Next Generation." Never mind.)

other Canadian actresses who are cute:
Pascale Bussieres
Molly Parker
Mary Louise Parker (technically American but has a habit of showing up in Canadian movies)
Sandra Oh (as in Oh My God she's funny)
Sandrine Holt (from "It Takes a Thief")
Jen from the Chatroom (technically not an actress)

Lorenzo Lamas catches EVERYONE'S attention as far as I can tell.

Good looking revolutionary women? How about Gloria Steinem? She was good looking enough to infiltrate the Playboy club as a bunny-waitress. And I saw a recent picture of her - still pretty nice looking for 60. Must be all that good living.

Ian Hanomansingh: be still my beating heart. Not bad at all. Him and Mark Kelley from the morning show on CBC. (wolf whistle). Then, as mentioned by Dr. C. elsewhere, there is Avi Lewis. Not classicly beautiful features, but his face is interesting and it lights up with intelligence and personality.

Anyone watch The Passionate Eye? Michaelle Jean (did I spell that right?) is absolutely beautiful in my opinion.

I am cute: ask Matrix! She's seen me!

Why, I'm so cute I have to wear sunglasses everywhere I go because I can't have people recogniIng me.

What's cute about me? Well, I have a nice complexion, a great pair of green eyes and a distinguished bald spot on my head. I can grin a racoon out of a tree and I am genuinely fun to be with.

Yes, I am the benchmark for cuteness. I am the cute, too cute, beyond the valley of cute, son of cute, bride of cute and even ghost of cute.

I am cute. Believe it.

It just doesn't come cuter than me.

Why did I not see this thread until now?!?! Oh, where to begin...

quote:
Does Julia Roberts' mouth scare the bejeezus out of you?

I knew I wasn't the only one!!!

quote:
Do you pine
for the days when men were men and girls were girls

Not at all. And not just because I wouldn't be getting any action in those days, either (not like I'm getting any now. grr...). The "John Wayne Type" just doesn't appeal to me. Some of it probably is politics, as I realize, since I'm one of those unfortunate people who just don't have the ability to fully remove political analysis from their situations- it's just always there, no matter where I am, or what I'm thinking. Anyhow...

quote:
Or do
you think men and women should both ideally look like fourteen-year old boys,

heehee, far be it from me to suggest women should look like fourteen year old boys Anyway, I don't like that trend very much. In fact, whenever I see someone on TV that fits that profile, despite being at the very least 18, I think to myself "get back in class, smalls! Teacher wants youre 'what does freedom mean to me' assignement handed in." Which is kind of sad, since a) I'm in high school, myself, and b) I had to actually do a very similar assignment to the one I attributed to be third grade material, for grade 10 Civics this year.

Anyway, as for who's hot in the male actor/pop-star/media figure category, I'd have to say one of the sexiest men in the world would have to be Jakob Dylan, IMO. And I'm not like the rest of these bums- oh no, I've got photographic evidence to back up my claim:

Click!
Click!
Click!

There are many, many more pics where those came from, but I'd just be wasting space if I posted them all. Actually, I don't think I would be, but that won't stop other people from getting mad at me, so anyway...

Other folk who fall into this category would be Jian Ghameshi of Moxy Fruvous and Play fame (even though he kind of looks like a fraggle. Please say I'm not the only one who knows what a fraggle is...), as well as Fabrizio Filippo and Peter Paige (Queer as Folk), Jimmy Fallon (SNL. mmm....) Ben Affleck, and Ben Stiller.

As for politicians, former BQ MP turned PQ MNA, Stéphan Tremblay, as well as, from certain angles, Mario Dumont of the ADQ (*shudder*). Bernard Lord's okay as far as politicians go, I guess...

As for women movie stars and blah blah blah, I'd say Drew Barrymore, Ariana Huffington, Laurie Brown and Suhana Meharchand of Newsworld (can you tell I watch a lot of Newsworld?). Oh, and Michelle, I agree. Michaelle Jean is quite beautiful, as well as Jan Wong, of CTV and the Globe & Mail.

As for political figures, in Canada, Wendy Lill, Francine Lalonde, Sophia Leung, and Adriane Clarkson are positively elegant. Elsewhere, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, President of the Philipines.

quote:
So much of how these people look is actually make-up and shots. In real life they often
look like crap.

That's true of many, however, to get back to Jakob Dylan, it's not true of all. For instance:
Click!
rrrrrrar!

But that leades us to another point, which is that the most beautiful people are the ones we actually see, not in photos or magazines, but in person- as you mentioned, our neighbors. However my picks for that criteria are only for those with MSN messenger and strong stomachs to put up with my gushing. Dawna knows what I'm talking about

I can't believe no one has mentioned the most beautiful man who ever lived... Jude Law. He takes my breath away every time I see an image of him... He is perfection, truly...

JUDE

But then, beauty does not always equal attractiveness. Yes, I'd be compelled to stare at Jude walking down the street, and if he was a god I'd worship him. But he inspires sighs, not growls...

Now, Luke Wilson- there's a guy who I find growl-able and so perfectly cute he can't be real...

Luke

Hardly the best photograph of him, but the first time I saw him was in X-FILES the "bad blood" episode and I was just bowled over... You can see some of the "model" shots if you look

here


Women?

Cate Blanchett has to be the most gorgeous woman on the screen these days... She's devestating...
Hard to find a decent picture of on the net, though, which actually makes me like her more...


Cate

I think half of the reason I fall for these people is they are exceptionally gifted actors, as well. On top of eternal "cuteness", they have talent - something that's a must if my opinion of cute is going to be sustained for any length of time...

How embarrassing. I see I made a mistake last year when I named Ezio Pinza instead of Rosanno Brazzi, who melts me still in South Pacific and Summertime (the Venice movie with Katherine Hepburn). (Maybe Pinza was doing the singing for Brazzi in SP.)

Other folk who fall into this category would be Jian Ghameshi of Moxy Fruvous and Play fame

Hee hee. Jian Ghomeshi is my most memorable "brush with fame", meades. When I moved to Toronto, I worked for a call centre, not one where you have to call people, but where you wait for people to call in to request your services. He called in and bought one of our products and I got to talk to him for about 10 minutes. I didn't recognize his name, though. I had to ask him who his employer was because of a credit check or something, and he told me his record label, and then I said, "Are you in a band?" Then he told me yes, he was in Moxy Fruvous! I was so thrilled, because I love that group, but I tried not to gush too much.

And you're right, he IS hot - but what's up with the hair? I like it much better long and tied in a pony-tail. I don't understand this new style of haircut where you try to make your hair look as much like a wig as possible.

But very cute, and actually he's very pleasant too - none of the "snob" stuff you might expect from someone high-profile, at least not when I talked to him. I figure if you treat a call centre person decently, you must be a decent person, considering how many rude clients we had.

Re: mouths. I am strangely awed and revolted by Cameron Diaz's. Hers, even more than Julia Roberts', seems more like a wound than a mouth. Combined, their mouths don't merely dominate the visual scenery in My Best Friend's Wedding, they are the setting.

All the same I wouldn't--how shall I put this--dismiss either mouth from the boudoir for eating crackers.

Woman I would live in Venice in blissful obscurity with: Licia Maglietta (from Bread and Tulips).
Woman I would most like the sound of: Kathleen Turner.
Woman I would most like to (nevermind) with: Julianne Moore.
I also adore Stockard Channing, Diane Keaton, Michele Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Jennifer Jason Leigh, Cecilia Roth (All About My Mother)...the list is endless, and not an enormous mouth among 'em.

Jean Arthur -- I haven't thought of her for so long, but I loved that voice, and the shrug and the slouch and the faint battiness. She was what I think we used to call "plucky" -- that was about as daring as nice grils of her generation were supposed to get (before they turned into Barbara Stanwyck, woo oo).

And Annie Lennox -- yippee. A supergril, indeed.

If I had to choose which actor I'd spend a weekend in bed with... it would have to be Nicolas Cage. I know I know - but I think he's hot. Brad Pitt is TOO pretty (looked damn good in Fight Club though). Tom Cruise is too not my type. And even though the movie wasn't the best... I had no problem watching Mark Walberg (it's Marky Mark!) in long hair pretending to be some rock n roll legend.

As for da women, I find Helen Hunt to be an attractive actress. Reese Witherspoon is adorable, maybe she'll grow up soon? Must be hard to be "cute" all the time. Sandra Bullock is pretty good looking too.

I've heard many of my favourites, but I don't think anybody's mentioned Daniel Day Lewis....

I think he's fabulously good-looking.

Also, Lillian Gish as a young woman was ethereally beautiful. She aged interestingly, too.

rasmus, I totally agree. Not only that, Cage kind of creeps me out- it probably has something to do with him always looking depressed- even when he smiles. Plus I just don't think he's all that good looking. Same thing for Tom Cruise, though he's looking better with the short hair.

On a nicer note, I'm listening to Jakob Dylan (well, The Wallflowers), Mr. Sexy Voice, right now! "I'm lookin' through you..."

Bjork, Audra? The last time I heard Bjork mentioned, it was on T.V., and Carole Pope was saying Bjork was the only one trying to do something original in Pop Music. I wouldn't know Bjork to see her, but I'm intrigued.


Okay, I'm crapy when it comes to names of actors and actresses, but the woman who was in "The Virgin Suicides" and starred in this years "Spiderman" is really neat.

I think the people that catch your attention are the ones that you really don't know why they do.

Like 50's pin up and fetish star Betty Page, you can look at photograph after photograph, and still not quite be able to put your finger on what it is that makes it work, and maybe that's the key.

If I had a gun to my head and had to say what it is in these cases, with women cellebrities it is the ability to smile with more than the mouth, but with the eyes too. Yes, Julia Robert's mouth is funny looking, but when she smiles, she smiles with her whole face... unlike, say, soft core child porn star Amorica Spears. (I can never spell her first name right, so I'll revert to the old name for that region of France..... )

With male celbrities, it's actors who can manage to convey a thought process without words. Gregory Peck was maybe the best at this. Nicholas Cage can do this, but unfortunately, the thought process is often "My Cat's breath smells like cat food." and this does little to inspire.

The wife of Bukharin, Larisa was more gorgeous than life itself. (This was before she spent ten years in the Gulag, though.)

Those interested should pick up her recent autobiography, with introduction by Steven Cohen.
It is called "This I Cannot Forget". Lots of photos of Larisa.

It's called having a face that "reads"... Very important in film, which is a show-me medium (as opposed to tell-me, like theatre or literature). Works the same way with women. Winona Rider, Emma Thompson both have "readable" faces.

Jeremy Irons has a wonderfully readable face.

Who's Nadia Cole?

I'll call with Carole Laure.

You might remember Warren Beatty, but would he remember you...?

Readable faces? My favorite non-verbal moment in film is the scene immediately following the "horse's head" scene in The Godfather. There's a shot of Marlon Brando raising his eyebrows as if he got caught stealing a cookie but wasn't worried about what mamma would do. It cracks me up.

Another great non-verbal scene is the three-way draw near the end of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Ennio Morricone's music plays a large role in this one.

Well, there's a subtle difference between being "readable" and non-verbal. The difference being, in fact, subtlety itself.

I find most American actors (especially the method types -- gawd, I hate method!!) have a terrible tendency to mug, which they take as good acting. Ick.

Being readable is more like being able to convey something with no more than the flick of an eyelash -- it's the cultivation of stillness....

Ever seen the scene with Lillian Gish in "Way Down East" when her child dies? There's this moment where she winds down all movement, and there's this moment of absolute mute stillness that screams louder than any action could... You can feel the pain. It's almost tangible.

Ingrid Bergman could do this, too, as could Audrey Hepburn. Katherine Hepburn, too, for that matter.

Is this making sense to anybody but me?

Film star I most want to look like when I hit my 40s -- Isabella Rosselini....

PS: Men With Brooms was directed and co-written by Gross. The "Music" credit is his, too--dunno what that implies, maybe that he picked it. The movie was supposed to be a break-out Cdn. film, was advertised a lot...and only did moderate box-office (or B.O., as the trades say (!)). According to the Telefilm booklet in my possession, Gross also starred in Stratford's 2000 production of Hamlet.

I know it is post 9/11 and no one has any rights any more, but doesn't anyone at least believe in
actual proof anymore?

If not, let me know, as there are several people I would like to slander.

Luck I wasn't knighting him. He would have got a whack with the sword where the sun don't shine.

The wackiest thing just happened.... After swearing off auditions about 3 years ago, I make one little mention on this about I used to be an actor, first comment of the kind I've made in years... Local casting director just called me up and offered me an audition for a paying gig...

Dunno if I even want it... Apparently they still think I'm cute...

Bizarre....

Afterthought -- Saw Lord of the Rings a couple of nights ago... Sean Bean is definitely cute. In a rugged sort of way.

jeff: I don't like his comments, but I wouldn't say that he's a for-sure wife abuser. I'm just sayin'.

Yes, but now Rebecca has decided to stop dating Connery, on the basis of this article. That seems excessive to me.

You should compare notes with Maria. She watched practically every episode of Sharpe, calling out "Seen Been!" (rhymes, geddit?) when the credits came on.

He'll never displace the Cuban actor Jorge Perrugoria (sp?) at the top of her list, but he was definitely added to it.

Anyone see John Sayles' Lone Star? I think Elizabeth Pena, though a trifle thin, is majorly attractive.

Only caught snippets of Sharpe...

But I have to say, pretty boys don't do much for me. I like strong-looking, strong-featured men. Preferably very tall. Tall is good.

Audra! Oh my god! I can't believe I didn't see this until now! Lucky you!!!

Also, I just have to add Nick Valensi (1, 2, 3) from The Strokes. I saw them on SNL tonight and had to add him.

I read all the "Sharpe" books, and watched the series that suffered at times from an obviously constrained budget.

I had seen all the episodes at one point, and my wife at the time asked me if I was going to watch "Sharpe".

Me: "No, it's a re-run"

then wife: "Oh, but sometimes you watch things twice, why not tonight"

Me: "Since when did you develop an interest in Napoleonic history?"

then wife: "Who is 'Napoleon'? I want to watch Sean Bean."

Me: "ah."

My teenaged niece has developed a "thing" for Orlando Bloom (Legolas in Lord of the Rings), a real pretty-boy. I have been teasing her mercilessly that Sean Bean is much better looking, definitely not going to be mistaken for a girl. Oh, the roars I get! Hee hee heeeee!!!!
