Our choice this week is Clive Owen. . . Because we loved him as a con in Greenfingers, a movie few people saw but that he made worth seeing. He's rough on the outside, tender on the inside, and totally cravable.
Because as King Arthur he became the epitome of what a man should look like in leather. Switch his horse to a Harley and he'd still look studly.
Because all the houseguests and their actions in Gosford Park revolved around his character, and he held his own against such consummate actors as Maggie Smith, Helen Mirren, Alan Bates, and Jeremy Northam.
Because he made a fabulous villain in the Bourne Identity. Even those nerdy glasses could not hide his hunkiness.
Because he's the thinking female's hunk. And we love his ugly handsomeness, or handsome ugliness.
Let's face it: He's just plain talented. And if we met him at a bar, well, no holds barred.
