    Just read this :

    « Now, the world is full of gorgeous men who, despite their good
    looks and perfect bodies, are about as appealing as a dead fish. I've
    always found that there are pretty guys, and there are sexy guys, and the
    two aren't necessarily the same. Pretty is a combination of hard work and
    god given features. Sexy is a whole different matter. Sexy is an
    attitude. Sexy is the way a guy holds himself, and interacts with others.
    Sexy is in the eyes and the posture. »


    I was just surfing the web... Nice & true words.

    I always divided it into cute, pretty, and hot. You can be cute and pretty, you can be pretty and hot, but you can't be cute and hot. (Well, you can, if the person in question's a pedophile.)

    I must concur with major: I find the Bradster to be both pretty and sexy.

    So who's pretty, but not sexy? Hmmm ... maybe Cary Elwes in The Princess Bride days. He was pretty, but not not particularly sexy. That's not to say I wouldn't do him, but you know me.

    Not pretty, but sexy as fuck? Warren Cuccurullo and the Rock come immediately to mind.

    Another vote with Major7 here. I think Brad Pitt is pretty and sexy EXCEPT when he's playing a pretty boy role, ala Legends of the Fall.

    Same with Leonardo DiCapprio, sexy as fuck in Total Eclipse, but completely droll in Titanic.

    In the "not pretty but sexy as fuck" category, that's hard to find examples of in Hollywood, or maybe I just find too many things pretty.

    I'm a bit surprised; when I worked in a predominantly gay company (years ago!), my tastes matched up with them pretty consistently. I guess this is yet another example of the ravages of time, and maybe generational tastes, as well.

    What a freakin' GREAT LIST! :bounce:

    I could only switch a few "s" and "p" assignments, and that would be it! I was going to quibble about Gabriel Byrne, because I remember reading (*unsubtantiated*) that he was less than wonderful; but then I'd have to cut Russell Crowe, et. al. for similiar reasons, and that wasn't part of the deal.

    In the 1980's, a wore out the "pause" button on my VCR's remote control when Julian Sands showed frontal nudity in "A Room with a View."

    Ahhh, the good old days.... :)

    Even though I am a certified ass pirate (I have my union card and everything), I can find women pretty, and even sexy. However...

    I will never understand that one. What do straight men find pretty about that long, horsey face and big, horsey mouth? Not to mention those beady little eyes. I saw the movie poster that proclaimed Pretty Woman and asked, "Where? Surely not Julia?!" And did you see Mary Riley? She looked even homelier than usual.

    Want to see Hilary looking sexy and pretty? Take a look at her as Raquel Welch:

    Hilary as Raquel

    The likeness is not as amazing as Winona Ryder as Elizabeth Taylor, Isabella Rossellini as Barbra Streisand, or Lisa-Marie Presley as Marilyn Monroe, but pretty close just the same.

    I'm afraid I did. ;)

    Her legs certainly go ALL the way to the floor, but she does nothing for me. Except make me slightly resentful and hostile. :grr:

    Nice pic there, DMW! Maybe it's time for her to tackle a glamour-puss role? And that big mouth on Julia is sort of appealling to me. Not sure why, really.

    I'll now add another name to my "Sexy Not Pretty" list: Jill Scott

    I agree, Kim. Kevyn Aucoin was an artist and a hell of a sweet guy. You know, he was a Louisiana boy, and I've met him on a number of occasions. Twisted sense of humour! If you have his books, then you know what I mean about Lisa Marie as Marilyn Monroe. Is that likeness not incredible? And how about Amber Valetta as both Carole Lombard and Clark Gable? So beauty is in both in the eye of the beholder and the skill of the makeup artist!
