    Just wondering? If you say neither or both, that's fine. Your opinions are welcomed.

    River, River, River, River. Did you know he grew up in a cult community where parents swapped their kids with each-other for sex? He is cuter, a genuis actor, and fixed in my mind forever as a beautiful young man.

    I like them both. River was hot looking. Joaquin is sexy in his own way.

    I like Juaquin he has an odd attraction I think. But he also looks like the kind of guy that constantly says things that are a little stupid. I don't know maybe it's just me.

    A little trivia on Stand By Me: The role of Chris Chambers was originally suppose to be played by Corey Haim. Good thing someone at the cast department changed it to River or it would have been a disaster.

    RIVER!!! Juaquin's only attractive attribute is his eyes.

    River is the only one that does not resemble his siblings. He kind of resembled a little like a very young Dean Stockwell. That is if you seen Dean as a teenager, he looked exactly like River Phoenix when he was in his teens. They could have been distant brothers.

    Agreed. I like Joaquin--I think he's handsome and a good actor--but River really had something special. His death was a great loss.

    I never thought River was that hot. Joaquin on the other hand? There's something about him I find attractive. I think River looked like a undernourished kid from the wrong side of the tracks whose parents just might have been cousins. I think Joaquin is a strapping, wholesome dude (for a vegan) who looks like a man. Or, maybe it's just because he has a larger body of work than his brother left behind.

    In terms of talent, I think Joaquin is a fine actor, loved him in Walk the Line and Gladiator. I think Phoenix would have had an outstanding career and probably would have developed into one of his generation's most accomplished actors.

    But still, looking below, I'd still say Joaquin got the better end of the deal in terms of genetics:

    We did see a nice butt shot of Joaquin in the movie, The Yards. Did you see that one, Branleur?

    Joaquin is by far the better actor.

    Besides, he is hot AND vegan. :rolleyes:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for that pic River! Where, oh where, did you find it?

    Many years ago I saw a pic of River in a magazine in which he was sitting down in a chair and his pant legs were just short enough that you saw a glimpse of his hairy legs. I thought it was sooo sexy. I've looked many times for that pic but have never been able to find it. The pic you posted is different, but it's in the spirit of the photo I recall.

    I'll agree that Joaquin has a more rugged, "manly" look, but for a lot of people the heavy eyebrows, crooked nosed, and asymmetrical features detract from his looks. I don't agree that River looks undernourished or that thing you said about his genetics. He's just thinner and prettier.

    However, I must say that I love the color of Joaquin's eyes.

    As a matter of fact, Meniscus, you do see River's hairy legs as a teen in a very rare B&W pic.
