Gollum is a harsh comparison and it doesn't matter if you're a man. Of course a man can see whether or not they think another man is handsome. Its why half of us are scrambling over Bond's styling. We know the Bond actors look damn good, men or women judging.

while i wouldn't say that Brozzo is ugly, I would never want to look like him.  The others on the other hand, if i HAD to look like them, it would be alright!

Well in the Novels, Bond is described as having a 'Coma of Hair' drooping over his left Eye.

Oddly enough, none of them have hair to that description. They all swept it to the right or straight back in most of the film still and promo shots I am seeing.

Actually, one of the things that got me stoked about Dalton was his wild hair, which I think was a nice 80's translation of literary Bond's unkempt "thick comma" during the 50's and 60's.

My input on this topic:  ...as some have said in terms of "classically handsome" looks I would think Brosnan and Moore had those and in their prime, one would actually consider them as "pretty," though that is not the best description for our rugged hero.  I would rank Lazenby next, then Dalton, then Connery, then Craig, again, strictly based on "classically handsome." 

The key though if considering the books, Bond was both "terribly" handsome and ruthless looking at the same time.  It's interesting to note, though that Christopher Lee, who somewhat endorsed DC when he was first announced for CR, did mention that based on discussions with Fleming (his distant cousin by marriage) about the character and appearance of Bond, Brosnan would be is the closest to his "vision."  I would analyze the tastes back then of what Fleming would have considered as ruthlessly handsome, would be an image of some guy that by our standards today may nonetheless be "pretty" and one of his Bond choices, David Niven, comes to mind.

Craig in my opinion is ugly but very confident in his portrayal.

Sir Rog was more elegant and refined that handsome.

Connery can be described as handsome.


As a woman I can confirm that we generally do find Pierce  extremely pleasing to the eye. I think it has something to with his hair... his hair is amazing! ajb007/tongue

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

Didn't Connery was his chest for Dr No? Not immediately before, but his chest hair seems quite short and civilised compared to his other films.

Not worth a thread on its own you see.

I think Brozzer did the same for GE, by the time of TWINE he has, as Germaine Greer distastefully put it on The Review Show, 'hairy bosoms'...

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

For 'handsome'

Pierce Brosnan - there's probably something psychological to say about the fact that as Bond he looked like my dad in his younger days

Timothy Dalton - I also really like his voice

Sean Connery

Roger Moore - ignoring AVTAK

Daniel Craig - sexy (THAT TORSO), but not handsome

George Lazenby - he is in no way ugly, but there is nothing to raise him up among the others

'Sexy':

Daniel Craig
Sean Connery
Pierce Brosnan/Timothy Dalton
Roger Moore
George Lazenby

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

As a guy:

The prettiest one, at least in his first two films, was Pierce Brosnan

The ruggedly handsome leaders are Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton.

Also, I'd say Connery and Dalton are the best sounding Bonds as well.

As for which one I most resemble? T Dalts. My jawline isn't as long, but I've got brownish hair, green eyes, the thick eyebrows, and the deep cleft in the chin. And I have the beginnings of his receding hairline which was more prominent in 'Licence to Kill'. I'm not disappointed in that either. If I can look as good when I'm in my 60s as Dalton does, I can die a happy man.

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

As a female, I personally think Connery (those eyes!) and Dalton were the most appealing for me (and then Daniel Craig in Casino Royale although he's unfortunately he's aged quite a bit in Skyfall).  I then say Moore (although in some of his films his
character's lechery was a bit of a turn-off).

Although Brosnan was probably the most classically handsome, he did/does nothing for me (too cardboard, like a male model - I know Lazenby was a male model!). I guess I personally prefer more rugged men. As well, I dislike Brosnan's voice (love Connery's and really like Dalton's).

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

I don't think I resemble any of the actors in any way - I couldn't even pass as a relative!  Some have said I could pass as a brother of the late Christopher Reeve - which I don't see but still appreciate the compliment.  As far as the actors ranking, it depends on one's perspective.  From a purely photogenic one, it would be Brosnan/Moore/Lazenby/Dalton/Connery/Craig. From the point of shear testosterone - Connery/Craig/Dalton a tie, with Lazenby close behind then Brosnan and Moore.

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

Pierce Brosnan is probably the best looking Bond if you ask me. Especially the way he looked in Goldeneye. Young and badass.


The way Brando looked when he was young would fit the classic Bond discription perfectly in my oppinion! "Handsome and Ruthless".

He's too old when you factor in how many more years Craig is planning to be around and how many years EON would want a new actor to last.

Most likely true, though must say, Craig looked a lot older then his age in Skyfall.  And I am the first to admit that the only way that he would get the bond role is somehow it came open in the next year or two, and even then, with the X-men and Prometheus and other projects, he might be contractually unable to do bond.    Still I think he would make a great bond.   

Most likely the next bond is not a star now, as the role will most likely not be open for another 5-8 years and EON will want to pick someone who can do 3-5 bond movies.

Being a fellow man "of a certain age," I sincerely feel for him.  He must be taking sufficient nutrients to support his muscular physique, but I wonder what he's doing or not doing healthwise to make him look so aged.  Sometimes I think what he really needs is a peppering of botox shots on the face and daily, whole bottle applications of Oil of Olay with a car buffer.

In Inglorious Basterds, many people say his delivery of a British Officer and OSS operative resembled George Sanders, but it seemed to me that he was channelling Sean Connery's portrayal of General Roy Urquhart in "A Bridge Too Far."  That role in Basterds tells me he's capable of the gravitas needed for a Commander Bond and his other roles like in Haywire, show me he can be ruthless too.  I just think he'd need to be dark and ballsy in tone like Dalton, like when he was being interviewed in Sanchez's office in LTK.

I think his craggy and worn face are genetic. Kevin McKidd has some similar aging, but there is no suggestion that it is his own fault. His face has just been headed in that direction for many years. And frankly, I don't think Craig looks all that old when the stubble is shaved and he did promotions for the film.

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

I thought Craig seemed to get younger as the film progressed. After his return from 'enjoying death' he was meant to look knackered, eg with red eyes, looking tired. But when he gets into the spirit of doing his job - gets his teeth into chasing Silva - it enlivens him.

In general though, i thought in Skyfall that his short hair doesn't help either, and his lack of body fat and training regime have aged his skin (I know, I'm the same) - as they say, 'face or figure, you can't have both' when you get over 40  ajb007/crap

Re: Most Handsome Bond?

I'm surprised at the low ratings for Lazenby. Maybe it's because his film is rather old but wasn't he wowing people all over Europe with how good looking he was?

Here's my thoughts on each one:

Connery: Had the tough look going on. Very dark look (Like Dalton and Craig have/had) which can be appealing to women but not all. Handsome dude though definitely

Lazenby: Was "prettier" because he was a model. Didn't have a dark look like Connery which I think hurt him. Very open face but I can understand why he was a model.

Moore: Didn't really have that dark look that Bond is supposed to have either. Had the classically handsome thing going on and had a mature look even in his early films. Still looked good in AVTAK though.

Dalton: Going back to the dark look again and completely fit the Bond mold (And how he played it). With this look he looks more like the guy who is going to shoot you in the heart and walk away from you. Tough looking guy and relatively handsome.

Brosnan: Probably the best looking Bond ever but didn't really have the dark look that Dalton or Connery have. Handsome dude could of made a lot of money as a Model if he wasn't an Actor. I actually saw a video of him just the other day that was semi recent and he still looks awesome for almost 60

Craig: Has that dark brooding look which I believe Bond needs. Not really handsome per say I think if he didn't work out and hit the gym women wouldn't even be into him very much. Has dark piercing eyes though which adds to the role.

If I had to rank them all I'd probably go Brosnan, Lazenby, Connery, Moore, Dalton, Craig in that order.
