Natalie Portman

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Oh yes, I was trying to think of Portman and couldn't pull her up in my memory.


Also how about Ashley Judd?

Definitely Aishwarya Rai!
The young Elizabeth Taylor.
Rita Hayworth
Sophia Loren
Claudia Cardinale
Capucine
Grace Kelly
Catherine Deneuve
Pier Angeli
Yvette Mimieux
Natalie Wood
Shirley Jones
Audrey Hepburn
Jacqueline Bissett
Jane Seymour
Julia Roberts
Demi Moore
Gwyneth Paltrow
Julianne Moore

I am not at all drawn to male actors younger than I am, and cannot be objective nor subjective about whether they are good looking or not, so cannot comment on the likes of Jude Law, Brad Pitt, Mel Gibson, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, and other young'uns that many find attractive today. Since some of them are the same age (and some younger than) my own children, I look at them as just kids!

However, I was gaga over
No. 1 -- Fred Astaire!!! (talk about "je ne sais quoi"!)
and...
The young Albert Finney, Richard Burton, and Sean Connery
Paul Newman at ALL ages
Robert Redford
Tom Selleck !!! (of 20 years or so ago)
Harrison Ford
and I would've keeled over Patrick Swayze had he been just 5 years or so older!

Limiting myself to Most Beautiful, as opposed to Sexiest or Most Attractive, and in no particular order:

Jean Marais
Robert Taylor
Montgomery Clift
Gary Cooper (check him out in those early thirties movies with Dietrich; he's stunning, with beautiful eyes)
Marlon Brando
Robert Redford
Jude Law
Antonio Banderas
Gael Garcia Bernal
Gordon Warnecke (he played Omar in My Beautiful Laundrette)
Tony Leung

Vivien Leigh
Greta Garbo
Michele Morgan
Elizabeth Taylor
Kate Winslet
Rita Hayworth
Sophia Loren
Madeleine Carroll
Dolores Costello
Francoise Dorléac (just as pretty as little sister Catherine D. for my money, and a lot livelier)
Hedy Lamarr
Gong Li

Thanks, Old Fashioned!

Jean Marais

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I knew I was missing someone from my men's list! While I'm at it, I'll add two of his leading ladies to my women's list: Josette Day and Lee Miller.

I've never understood the fascination with Zhang Ziyi. Gong Li by far outshines her. Chow-Yun Fat is another attractive Asian superstar, and newcomer Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior) is not bad, either.

IMO, no actress has every been as alluring as Garbo. That voice!

Others:
Rita Hayworth, Hedy Lamarr, Ingrid Bergman, Grace Kelly, Anita Ekberg

Thanks to perky and dirac for reminding me of two I missed: Renee Zellweger and Gary Cooper.

I first saw Zellwegger in a movie called The Whole Wide World, in which she played a schoolteacher to Vincent D'Onofrio's Bob Howard, and I've been hooked on her beauty ever since. Gary Cooper looked great in his early 50's in High Noon.

No. 1 -- Fred Astaire!!! (talk about "je ne sais quoi"!)


I, too, have always had a little thing for Fred, but I was going strictly by beauty, so I couldn’t include him. Astaire’s secret is charm, I think. Immense charm, greater even than Cary Grant’s. (I recall reading that Fred’s sister, Adele, was possessed of even more personal charm than her brother, a frightening thought.)

(Clark Gable, who may not have been classically beautiful but who oozed . . . something,)


Gable always struck me as very likeable, but not that sexy. Until I saw a casual photograph of him from the early Forties. He’s astride his Harley and wearing a black fitted shirt (this is from memory), and suddenly I took a different view. I saw him again recently in It Happened One Night on Turner Classic Movies, and was struck by his warmth and humor, too.


The third Mrs. Gable, Carole Lombard, was one I forgot.

And how could I have failed to mention Tyrone Power?

The young Albert Finney, Richard Burton, and Sean Connery

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Young Finney, Burton at all ages (although he didn't have enough), and Connery more as he gained maturity.

Paul Newman at ALL ages

Well, at least until he became yet another poster child for too many face lifts.

I've never understood the fascination with Zhang Ziyi.  Gong Li by far outshines her. 

I couldn't also, then I watched the Echo Dance at the House of the Flying Daggers. After the Echo Dance she improved considerably in my eyes...
But you are right, Gong Li is simply stunning.

Zellwegger? Really? To me she has turned into a horrible parody of her earlier self with those lips scrunched together like a chipmunk.

But as always, different people see things in different ways!!

It makes the world go round!

Armin Mueller-Stahl. Yes, I know he's ... erm ... not young but those eyes, those lips, mercy me! Turns me into a puddle.

Runners up: Henry Simmons & Goran Visnic. Younger, gorgeous, but less charismatic, less powerful, less ... (fill it in)
