Man Talk: Has it?

So I’ve just watched a film called Grand Tourino, a new one from Clint Eastwood. It’s good. Halfway through the film, the other half asks me, does Clint, at 78 still “have it”. Yes, I say, I think he does.

I don’t know what “it” necessarily is. What I think it is, is a kind of integrity and manliness, intelligence and wit. It got me thinking about who I think has IT. MandyPandy, I await your vitriolic disagreement..

Orlando Bloom
I had a crush on him when he appeared on LOTR as the elf – like the biggest crush but he’s such a puny little weasel and he’s a crap actor.

Christian Bale
You know I have a crush on Bale, even though he isn’t conventionally good looking but I think he’s talented and er, has nice pecs.

Paul Newman
RIP Sir, but I think he’s a fine example of a man.

It annoys me when people start up on the Angelina/Chinnfer thing because ultimately, if a married man cheats, its 99% his fault, cos baby, he’s the one who is committed. However, that doesn’t mean bloodsucking women should go round sucking the blood of married men without abandon and feel guilt free…but that’s another topic entirely.

Liam Neeson
Irish men are the best, dontcha know? I just like him and his down to earth quality…

George I-would-eat-myself-if-I-were-praline Clooney. He just loves himself too much and he looks OLD. I don’t see the appeal of dating a (rich, famous, sucessful) man who looks like the dude from Just For Men.

Finally one more, for the gays –

Stephen Fry. Love him. Amazing voice, amazing writer, actor, comedian and a very clever man.

Agree or Disagree? Don’t tell me off, I’ve got PMT.

    George Clooney! Lol! Totally agree! And what’s with only dating waitresses and not professionally successful types? Is he scared? Someone has self-esteem issues me thinks… Mr Bale has IT, though.

    Oh no no no to all of the above! However, I’m afraid I may have a little something with that Robert Pattison bloke off perhaps the most embarassing film I’ve seen (well streamed a very bad copy of) in a while – that being Twilight.

    But here he just radiates perfection. And the girl has beautiful hair.

    Ewan Mcgregor in moulin rouge also hits the spot. Possibly Gael Garcia Bernal too but he’d need a few more inches to match my 5’10 length.

    Gosh, I hope OpenID doesn’t immediately chew up this comment like it’s done with all of my other ones… So far, OpenID isn’t allowing me to post comments. :-(

    ‘Vitriolic disagreement’?!? I actually agree with you 100%! Ok, more like 89%; Clint Eastwood is an old-ass Republican pepaw and an enemy to our liberal, Obama-loving ilk. But otherwise, I’d say you have it spot-on. We need a new category, though: Used to Have IT (But No Longer Does).

    On a side note: why are all of the Obama photographs out there so damned unflattering? They don’t do him justice! I hope Obama includes higher quality pictures in his annual swimsuit calender.

    Christian Bale is just YUM.
    I’m not a 15 year old goth but Brandon Lee – in The Crow or in his earlier amazingly bad but good action/martial arts films is for me the most gorgeous man who has ever walked the face of the Earth.

  5. Phyl says

    Haha, Obama does have it! Whatever it is 😛
    Also, It’s funny how all the guys “without it” are semi-naked

    Hey Medina

    Is Clooney gay or not? He does seem to have quite poor taste in women, almost a bit too obvious – the Las Vegas waitress, the topless models. He seems to not want a women who will answer back!

    Hi Elizabeth

    Of course! Gael is indeed cute but short :/ Have you ever seen Yu Tu Mama Tambien – I prefered his friend back then, not sure why.

    I do think Robert is very handsome as a vampire! Wasn’t he a little geek in Harry Potter! Well he’s hot now!

    Hi Pandy

    Openid eh? I was thinking about signing up myself, but I don’t know what it is!

    Obama’s photograph looks like a bad school picture but at least he manages a genuine looking smile?!

    Clint is a republican…ooh. I don’t know much about him to be honest, other than he has a much younger wife…but DAMN!

  9. Row says

    Hey Chica!

    Oh yes! Brandon Lee! Gone too young….he was the perfect example of a mixed race child I think, the dark hair and eyes from his dad, the sort of creamy skin and softness from his mother.

    Don’t like. You know you get out the goth at the weekends and hang around shopping centres!

    Ewww i see the nipple! I think Orlando had a nosejob too. Infact I know cos I found the old pic somewher on the net and he was NOT so pretty before with a big conk.

  11. Row says

    Hey Phyl

    Yeah! I think women are less impressed by male nudity anyway – I mean a man can see a woman in the street and she can just be semi naked or blonde and a man will go ‘coorrrr’, whereas a woman may see a decent guy in the street and think, ‘I wonder if he has a good job…I wonder if he wears good underpants…I wonder if he’d take me on holiday and be nice to my nan…’

    What do you mean, that’s just me?
