Unbelievable As A "Lady's Man"

Larry from "Three Is Company" is too ugly to attract the women he had

Barney Stinson on HIMYM. The actor playing him was also too plain to attract women.

Walter Matheau was ridiculously poor casting for the film where Ingrid Bergman was in love with him and Goldie Hawn was suicidal over him leaving her ( I'm having a momentary blank on the films title and am too lazy to google).

The film was Cactus Flower

I disagree in part but I can see what you mean. Goldie was playing the part of a girl attracted to an older man who was rich, stable and well off, things she was not.

On the other hand both Goldie Hawn and Ingrid Bergman is way out of there. If the older woman had been more realistic, I think it would be better.

Didn't Larry just wait for the ladies to get super liquored up at the Regal Beagle?

I always figured the ladies in that dive would consider any man a "Ladies Man" when he's not a midget, has all his teeth and hair and it's Last Call for the night.

I could see Morse's appeal. He was smart, classy, not unattractive, soulful, and wounded. John Thaw was only 60 when he died, but yes, Morse always seemed older than that.

To be fair, that sort of mirrors Rex Harrison (aka Ugly as Sin) and his relationships with women (he was married six times), in particular blonde starlet Carole Landis (who committed suicide when Harrison wouldn't divorce his wife and marry her.) All of his wives were fairly attractive, and his fourth also killed herself after Harrison divorced her.

I never follow baseball, but I had a thing for Alex Rodriguez in the late '90s, when he was in his twenties and on the Seattle Mariners. My brother is a sports nut and I sometimes would watch with him if I found a player attractive. A-Rod was baby-faced but masculine, with green eyes, luscious lips, and a nice butt. For some reason, he became really hideous (in looks and behavior) after he moved to NYC to play for the Yankees. Go figure!

I don't think Frasier was considered a ladies man. He was rich, successful and cultured but managed to fuck up and sabotage most of the times he tried to get laid. That said, straight women can get past looks for the aforementioned qualities and he wasn't hideous. Frasier was actually presented as bumbling in the love department.

Some of these are ridiculous. Matt LeBlanc is stunningly handsome. So is Mikhail Baryshnikov, plus he has a ballet dancer's superass.

But even so, gay men always make the mistake that being a ladies' man has to do solely with being handsome. It does not: straight women are mostly not as obsessed with looks as gay men are. They are more turned on by confidence and charisma.

It didn't help that he was often referred to as being 'gorgeous' by Diane and the other women he bedded. It's one thing to be attracted to his personality, but the show tried to sell Sam Malone as a studly jock, too.

Me, too. I was one of those gaylings who watched old movies from the '30s/'40s and Stewart was an early crush. Handsome, affable, lovely smile, and beautiful eyes that you could tell were blue even in black-and-white. The crush is still there over twenty years later, but it has to be young Jimmy Stewart.
