"I wonder why?"%0D\
That''s what I''m wondering as well. %0D\
R6, thanks for the link to that thread. However, the description I used in my thread title was from about a year or so ago. I doubt the thread exists any longer.
He looks like a pretty-boy lesbian. I would have fucked him when he was young.\
Of course, my main man-crush was another pretty-boy lesbian type, the young James Spader.
It used to be that he was pretty, but now he''s not even that.\
He is one of those actors getting roles merely off their name. He''s not a pretty boy pin-up and he''s not a heavy weight talent. He''s just "Brad Pitt". An A-lister for no reason but that he''s been one for so long.
I can''t believe that someone with so much money couldn''t get the pock marks off his face. Why is is face still scarred? It''s not a good look when you''re past 40.
Same as R1. Pitt is attractive, but he just never "did it" for me, even when he was younger. Sure, I''d fuck him if given the opportunity but he''s not someone I would ever obsess over.
He never did it for me either. I think you''re exaggerating his appeal OP.
Brad has had microdermabrasion done on his skin and seems to have good skin now.%0D\
He was adorable when he was younger, masculine and pretty.%0D\
He seems like a pretty cool guy.
[quote]Brad has had microdermabrasion done on his skin and seems to have good skin now.%0D\
I''m glad you mentioned that because I thought his skin looked smooth the past couple years. When r10 posted saying he hadn''t had anything done, I thought maybe my eyesight has been fading.
Brad was a gorgeous young man with a body to kill for. This was pretty universally felt.%0D\
I personally could objectively admire his looks then but it didn''t do it for me. I always preferred older and less pretty men. Now he is much more masculine looking with a handsome face and still has that beautiful body. I prefer the lines and maturity on his face now. %0D\
As for straight men, I think it has a lot to do with Pitt''s cool and that they all want to BE him. That makes them feel they can say they''d fuck him if they were gay. %0D\
The OP and her Amen chorus are hardly representative of most people.
I think it''s just one of those cliche things to say without much actual thought given to it. There are much more feminine, prettier men than Brad Pitt.
I remember seeing an interview years ago. I think it was right after Kalifornia. He was as dumb as a box of hair. Or maybe just stoned out of his mind. My once lusty crush was crushed.
Brad does not look particularly good looking thess days, especially with the crummy, scraggly, ugly, ghastly beard.%0D\
He even braids some of the beard scraggles.%0D\
Disgusting and putrid.
He looks homeless, he''s not attractive in the least.\
OP & other Bradfangurls haven''t you seen pix of him with beard beads in his grey beard? \
He''s vomitous looking.
"There are much more feminine, prettier men than Brad Pitt."\
Names please, R16. Thanks.
I can recognise that he''s attractive but I''m not attracted to him. Dumb and talentless.
No OP NOT universal at all.
I like the fact that he doesn''t keep all his riches. He donates big bucks to those who are less fortunate. Plenty of film stars hold on to all their money. He sets a good example.
I have always thought he''s incredibly sexy...and IMO he gets sexier with age. His "Legends of the Fall" period was my favorite. YUMMY. I guess it all boils down to taste. For those of you who don''t think he is "all that" it is likely that I may not find your "it" guy sext. Different strokes for different folks.%0D\
I have the "thirtysomething" DVDs (yea flame me all you want) and on the commentary for the episode he was in they kept talking about how he had "IT" and everyone around him knew it. He''s just got that extra something...charisma, sex appeal, whatever, but it seems to work for him.
Keanu beats him by a mile, when it comes to being sexy and handsome. Keanu has always appealed to both sexes and as far as I know, has sex with both.
You are kidding right?\
He has the appeal of a roll of wet paper towels.
I remember one interview Brad did when he was young and he was drunk...but he still didn''t come across like an asshole, the way Charlie Sheen did, when he was interviewed drunk.
OP here. I am not saying that he is "onisexual, universal wanking material". I''m just quoting someone on DL that used that phrase. That being said, he does seem to be attractive to people of many stripes, including lesbian. I think it was Melissa Etheridge who expressed an attraction to him.
"There are much more feminine, prettier men than Brad Pitt."\
Please do name some.
He was very sexy but I think a lot of it was just hype. There were a lot of guys sexier than him. A lot of unimaginative straights fall for the hype. Just like all the dumb straight girls would go lesbian supposedly for Angelina or now Megan Fox...or the more "sophisticated" ones for Kate Winslet. *yawn* Think of someone more original.
Even Helen Keller said "Wow!" when he rode in on that horse in Legends of the Fall with that blonde hair flying in the wind.
[quote]What makes Brad Pitt omnisexual, universal wanking material?%0D\
To me? Nothing. I''m a girl (who likes dick) but never understood his appeal. He''s nice but I never felt he was that hot.
There''s a facebook page dedicated to guys going gay for Brad Pitt.
Male beauty coupled with the right amount of masculinity. He also has an easygoing personality.
Even straight guys are attracted to Brad Pitt.
He is bland, vanilla, boring, dumb, passive. Has no own personality and becomes like the women he curently dates. He looked like Goop''s twin when he was with her, the same with the other women.\
His "beauty" is nothing but HW PR.
"Even straight guys are attracted to Brad Pitt."\
I think he''s actually gotten sexier as he''s aged although I don''t like the unkempt, greasy look he has favored.
I think guys were embarrassed when they watched Point Break that they were all attracted to Keanu Reeves. Pitt is a girl. Keanu is a just a gorgeous man.
Apparently Brad Pitt''s hometown of Joplin, Missouri was severely damaged by a tornado today. Do you think New Orleans-style "Pitt homes" are on their way to Joplin?
I find Keanu attractive but he doesn''t have that "it" factor. And if you think Pitt looks grungy at times, Keanu looks homeless.%0D\
Brad has a better body and has managed to stay in good shape. He seems very easy going not a combative guy at all. I still find him sexy and I am a lesbian.%0D\
At times Pitt can come off as a mental light weight but I think that is because he is stoned most of the time.
R1 = Red Dragon Cheese Queen
"I still find him sexy and I am a lesbian."%0D\
What is it with Brad Pitt and lesbians? Why do they (and straight men) find him sexually attractive?
Brad Pitt is the only actor that can make moody David Fincher relax and be a kid on set.
It''s like the board has been inundated with an army of Mincing Prisspots !!!!!
He''s never been sexually attractive to me, OP. Even with the whole homoerotic vampire PR shit with Tom Cruise when I was a teen. So don''t be so presumptous as to assume everyone thinks like you do.
Don''t find him. Sorry.
Not my cup of tea. I have always found him to be an ugly little troll. He has some talent as an actor but never Oscar worthy. And his taste in companions is tacky and unacceptable.
Perhaps if you are turned on by blond, blue eyed guys, you prefer Pitt. I find him attractive but when Keanu Reeves is on screen, I can''t takee my eyes off him. Luckily we aren''t all turned on by the same thing.%0D\
I have met at least one person who met Brad in the flesh, she said he wasn''t as attractive off camara as on. I have read many accounts of people seeing keanu in person and they said he is more attractive in person than on film...which is kind of hard to believe.
I don''t think Pitt is universal wanking material at this point. That ship sailed when sometime around the final Oceans film. He just looks like a suburban dad now.\
It''s hard to think who''s taking his place as universal wank material.
Your promise is wrong, OP.
Ryan Gossling gets my vote, R50.
r49, you are correct about Keanu. I saw him a few years ago sitting outside of a sushi restaurant in Venice, CA. He was beyond beautiful. And completely aware of it. Btw, he was with a hot, dark-haired guy. I couldn''t get a vibe on whether they were just friends or more but they were both beautiful.
[quote]Brad Pitt is the only actor that can make moody David Fincher relax and be a kid on set.\
Brad Pitt has the only package that can make David Fincher''s sphincter relax and release his uptight moodiness.
There, I Rewrote That for You
I used to love Brad Pitt. He still looks decent for his age, but his most alluring days are behind him. I think his overexposure has a lot to do with that. \
R9, I know someone who saw Brad in person and was unimpressed. This was in his heyday too. She said his bad skin ruined him. \
I don''t know if he is everyone''s cup of tea, but I am with R52, Ryan Gosling has replaced BP in my affections.
r56, If he ever got away from Jolie it might take years off him.\
Living with a bi-polar heroin addict is bound to age anyone.\
Gosling is too bland for me. There''s no ''it'' factor, and something about him bothers me I can''t place. To each his own, of course.
Enough, R57. Enough. %0D\
THIS is a frau.
A frau or a queen R58
I saw Gosling interviewed during the Oscar season. I didn''t find him sexy, but I liked his personality and he was handsome, if not gorgeous like Bomer or hot like Hemsworth.\
I see him as more relationship material than hot fuck material.
Not That I''d Have a Chance
Nah, 59. That is pure frau-speak. Queens don''t give a shit who someone is with. They certainly don''t rant about them like a recycled tabloid magazine.%0D\
Brad is aging very nnicely. He''s almost 50. I never minded rugged faces with the lines of age even in my pup days. When your body is still mighty fine then I''m all yours. %0D\
First impressions are lasting impressions: In his first big break--"Thelma & Loiuse"--he showed off his abs, and people never forgot him.%0D\
He''s still good looking. He doesn''t say too much and hasn''t been in crazy scandals, so he''t not overexposed. His partner, Angelina, is beautiful and glamorous.%0D\
Women want him. Men want to be like him. And some men want him. Okay, so he doesn''t look like he did when he was 22, but there''s still a lot to like.
He''s a beautiful man.\
But I''ve never found him sexually exciting.
Ryan Gosling is merely attractive at best.%0D\
Too much of a horse face. Could never compete with Pitt in his heyday.
[quote]Even straight guys are attracted to Brad Pitt%0D\
No they aren''t. Sorry. OP, you seem so desperate to believe this-- starting threads about it every week. BP has no magic, elusive quality that you yourself can acquire to be attractive to straight men. They don''t want him and they don''t want you. Get over it.%0D\
If you ever heard that straight men want to fuck Brad Pitt, it''s because that''s the answer they always give if someone says, "if there was a gun to your head, which man would you fuck?" They just pick the most likeable, pretty man they can think of in the moment that they know most women find sexy. They''re just parroting what they imagine to be a good candidate. It''s the same with straight women. They all pick Angelina Jolie. Not because they want to fuck her, but because they know she is ''supposed'' to be some paragon of female sexuality. It''s just a knee jerk response.
I''ve never found him all that attractive. He''s ok, but I don''t think he''s as amazingly gorgeous as he''s always portrayed to be. I''m not saying it to be a contrary smartass, it''s just something I''ve always thought about him.
Same here, R63.
When he was at the height of his heartthrob status in the 90s, I thought he was incredibly sexy in an almost magnetic manner.
Goodlooking guy but I don''t find him attractive. He has a nice personality in that he doesn''t seem to take himself too seriously.
I''ve never quite gotten the appeal of BP, maybe because I prefer darker haired men, but My sister and best friend were extras for the upcoming Moneyball movie, and that turned them into Brad lovers. They spent a couple of evenings at the Oakland Coliseum and one night, my friend was able to get Pitt''s autograph. She was only a couple of feet away from him while he signed for her and other fans. She says he is unbelievably good looking in person, much hotter than he is on camera. I asked about the skin, and he must have had some work, because she said he didn''t have any pockmarks, and that the skin was very smooth. My sister said much the same thing, that he was much more attractive in the real world, and neither of them were what I would call Brad worshippers prior to that.
Found this old fossil.
R54, You are so correct about Keanu. Isaw him last year on the street and he is remarkably handsome and tall. More handsome in person.
Never had thought him Hot in films, however in person, Wow!
David Fincher wrote an article on Brad in last week's Entertainment Weekly Oscar issue.
Forget about Mara..Pitt is still his #1 muse
[quote]He has a nice personality in that he doesn't seem to take himself too seriously.
I really think this is the key. He's good looking but he's not the world's best actor. He gets along with people.
OP, don't include me in you embarrassing fangurl obsession. I have never - and will never - find anything remotely interesting or sexually attractive about this man. I got his appeal to people early in his career, but I really don't know how he kept that interest through the years.
Just had to drop in and add my two-cents after reading your heading, because you included me in it.
Add me to the list of people who don't care for him. I think he's a weak actor, and he's never been that attractive IMO. Too skinny and too prettyboy for my tastes--I like my men more masculine.
I can see Brad Pitt's appeal and his easygoing personality is a plus for getting along with others, but you can't help who gets your motor running. For me, Keanu Reeves, Rob Lowe and Alec Baldwin are more appealing, but I guess I'm more attracted to dark haired men who have a certain intensity about them rather than that easygoing thing.
I have a bisexual male friend that finds Brad Pitt to be very hot or sexy but he likes the younger Pitt and he likes the "jock" type.
Another bisexual male friend of mine told me how he found Brad Pitt hot in a trashy way in Thelma and Louise.
I can see the appeal to some people but personally he does not do anything for me.
[R5] Here's what I like- winning smilie, beautiful blonde hair, soulful eyes, washboard abs. And he's a really good actor who make a ton of money.
He was never my cup of tea, however, I did get what others saw. I do like his ass and his modest sized penis looks cute. I am no size queen.
DL loves its Wonderbread
I've always thought he was handsome and he looked really hot in both Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but I've never been HOT for him....He was really good in World War Z, and looked really sexy and more mature than I'd seen him.
Will he ever play a gay character?
I have never met a man his age who looks as good as he does. Indeed, in show business, only John Stamos is in his league for actors his age.
I agree, R22. He looks like a homeless goat a lot of the time, apparently intentionally to play down his looks and make him seem real and serious, but when he cleans up he is almost ethereal. In hi prime, he was ethereal.
R96 Rob lowe still looks good.
[R98] Good point, I forgot about him.
I meant, R97, not R22.
Now,I know he was SUPPOSED to be the hot young stud in "Thelma and Louise" and I'm not being a jealous bitch when I say that physically, he looked like a skinny little rat to me.
R101, about the time of Troy and Fight Club something changed about Pitt's body that made him, dare I say, curvaceous and thicker. He went from being thin or lithely muscular to something beyond that. I was pleased with that development.
The answer to the question, blonde hair, soulful blue eyes, lean, boyish body. He was hotness personified and is still attractive even at the age of 50.
