I'm here! I have been reading this thread but it has just been following the usual path. However, seeing as you asked for my opinion ...

Of the four of us you mentioned , we know were Monique and MBE are on the whole Craig thing and I am pretty sure Mrs Dalloway is pro Craig, so, so far, that splits the board down the middle. As Alessandra has rejoined us, that has just tipped the scales in favour of the anti Craigers.

I think we are the only regular female posters here, which is a shame but I actually think it is a fair indication of public opinion with Craig. 

Of my friends and colleagues I really haven't heard anyone say a bad thing about Craig. There are few that are sitting on the fence but I really don't see any out and out negativity and I have heard many say they think he will be really good. 

As for the actually kissability ratings, I would take Craig over Orlando Bloom or Brad Pitt anyday. I have turned full circle with Craig,based on pictures of him I really did think he was awful but after watching him and listening to him he definitely has grown on me. He has a sexiness about him and glint in his eye that is very attractive.

Re: Craig voted 2nd most kissable male

Perhaps the anti-Craigers would consider Craig the #1 most-kissable if it meant kissing him goodbye?

Re: Craig voted 2nd most kissable male

Well, I find Orlando's looks much more pleasant and sexy than Craig's, so you see Highhopes it is all a matter of taste. Not to mention Hugh Jackman or George Clooney. And as I said Patrick Dempsey and... my Marat Safin. I'd never put Craig in a list of people I want to kiss. As Loeffsie knows. ajb007/lol

The first of the list remains the guy I know. Not a celebrity. Just a guy I know. A much more kissable male than Craig is, as far as I'm concerned. Kissing is not simply about looking good. It's about having what my friend Wendy and I call "IT". That undefinable mixture of sexiness, manliness, charm, style.. what the French call "allure". If I see "IT" in a man, then I definitely have the desire to kiss him. If a man doesn't have "IT" in my opinion, then there's no way I can be interested in kissing him whatsoever. And I don't see "IT" in Craig. And Loeffsie, no more indiscretions please! ajb007/embarrassed ajb007/lol

Aaah, Highhopes you make me blush! ajb007/embarrassed Those women are icons of beauty! ajb007/biggrin Afraid I can't compare, but one thing I can say beyond doubt: my English is much better than theirs! ajb007/lol I don't want people to perceive I'm Italian when I speak English, often when I am in the US people don't believe I am Italian and I have grown up in Italy and such. They insist that I must have one of my parents from the US, because I speak with an American accent. Of course, you can detect I'm foreign.. and by looking at me, I believe I can only be mistaken for a Spanish person if not Italian ajb007/lol

But I will gladly put the accent on for you Highopes, since you seem to like it! You'll have to make do with the rest, I am no Sophia and most of all no Virna Lisi (she's my favourite. And even now, she has a class and a beauty that younger women can only dream of!) ajb007/biggrin

And Monique, you are right about the kissing, it's what I was saying about a man having "IT". If a man has "IT" (sexiness, manliness, charm, style, that "je ne sais quoi"), then he's kissable, otherwise not. And IT includes everything: looks and all the above things. Being only goodlooking is far from enough to be "kissable". I have to be attracted to this person. As you said, a pretty face with no brains doesn't really inspire me much. ajb007/lol

Hey Alessandra, do you think there's a chance you upgrade Craig's kissability quotient after seeing him as Bond?  Just curious...

Hey blueman! ajb007/smile Hmm.. who knows. Never say Never. From what I've seen so far, I would say no. But I haven't seen the whole movie, so you know, there may be that moment, or scene when I see him having that "je ne sais quoi" I was talking about. And that may make me change my mind! To me, he doesn't have "IT" at all right now. But again, I haven't seen the whole movie, so I don't want to say no before having seen all the faces of the "product" ajb007/lol Who knows.. one day I may be Daniel's girlfriend. ajb007/lol Ok, I think I've had enough mojitos over the weekend. ajb007/lol

Really? 'Cause I look just like Marcello Mastroianni. The schmuck in the avatar is just some loser I happened to have a picture of.

Seriously, Alessandra, I'm sure that you more than hold your own against Sophia, Claudia, et al, to the only one that matters: That most kissable guy you talk about.

Re: Craig voted 2nd most kissable male

I like him as an actor but I think he looks older than his age and I don't think he fits a bond begins scenario.

That said I think he's facing an uphill battle only 2 movies have made $100 mill U.S. since July.

only 1 of the 12 movies that have reached $100 million this year made less than $38 mill its opening weekend. Casino Royale won't open near that.

If it doesn't hit $100 mill, it won't reach the dollars of any of the Brosnan films.

Aw. This is such a cute, nice thing to say that you deserve a kiss! ajb007/embarrassed Well, we'll see if I can hold my own ajb007/biggrin

I can't see the photo very well since it's kind of small, but.. do you look like that actor who is hilarious and was in "Meet Joe Black" playing the husband of one of the girls? I can't remember his name. I love him, he always plays caring, funny men. And is a good actor.

Hey, Marcello was the epithome of class and beauty, Italian-style. So if you even remotely look like him, you should be proud! You chose a good icon to look like!

As far as upping Craig's kissability factor, the new photos don't work for me so far. I'll have to wait for some actual footage to give my final judgement. ajb007/biggrin
