What makes Brad Pitt omnisexual, universal wanking material?

Somebody described him as being that on DL a while back, i.e., that he is sexual attractive to all sexes and orientations. What is it about him that has that effect?

by Anonymousreply 12203/07/2015

I never understood his appeal.

For me, he's a big "meh!"

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.

by Anonymousreply 805/19/2011

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.

[quote]Brad has had microdermabrasion done on his skin and seems to have good skin now.%0D %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 %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 %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 %0D The OP and her Amen chorus are hardly representative of most people.

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 %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.

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.

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.

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 %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 %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.

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.

by Anonymousreply 5605/25/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 5705/25/2011

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.

by Anonymousreply 6005/25/2011

First impressions are lasting impressions: In his first big break--"Thelma & Loiuse"--he showed off his abs, and people never forgot him.%0D %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 %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.

by Anonymousreply 6205/25/2011

[quote]Even straight guys are attracted to Brad Pitt%0D %0D %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 %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.

by Anonymousreply 6505/26/2011

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.

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.

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.

Actually, he is more attractive now than he was in the past. Much more attractive. I wonder how some people say that his looks faded. When he was younger, he was not as beautiful as he is now. There was something missing in his face. Now, he radiates. Now, he has an aura about him.

OP, are you posting from 1997? Brad Pitt is old enough to have kids in their twenties. Yes, he's still very sexy and still a sex symbol, but he is not "universally" appealing to all age-groups, let alone all genders.

A straight guy today might admit he could fuck Justin Beiber or Zach Efron for laughs, but I don't know any straight guys who would admit to imagining fucking a bearded, grizzled middle-aged man like Brad Pitt.

Okay looking when young, lost his looks years ago when he went hippie, now he is "wide" as the sisters say, and if he is still friendly with the Isis loving bearding Clooney, he can cram it.

He also has not made an interesting movie in years.
