Re: Best looking/handsome/attractive Bond 1-6

Brosnan, as has been said, it very handsome in a bland, generic sort of way.

He, along with George Clooney, leave me cold but I can see why they are referred to as very handsome. A classic case of 'handsome but not attractive.'

Craig, on the other hand, I wasn't fond off at all when he was first announced as Bond but he has since grown on me and I would regard as 'very attractive but not handsome'.

Dalton ( no surprise to anyone here ) I find the most attractive. His look is quite 'dangerous' which is very appealing.

Connery,Moore and Lazenby I am a bit blasé about.

totally agree, but I would switch your Craig, for your Dalton.

Dalton is up there for me, for sure....

But Craig... well I can't put my finger on it (wish I could  ajb007/shifty ) but he has that brooding, menacing look. He wouldn't be scared of anyone, and to me, that is such a big turn on!  ajb007/embarrassed

Quoting the opening post, above.  Considering that fellow AJB member DanielCraig007 is an obvious Craig fan, I applaud him for being a realist in polling Craig as the least in the Bond looks criteria.  It doesn't need to be a case of the Emperor's new clothes, in which it's necessary to force individual perceptions to conform to the prevailing popular view.  If I learned anything about the film series particularly at this stage, is that the role must be given flexibility in interpretation for the series to go on as long as it has and Bond's current incarnation is the boldest divergence ever taken.  I enjoy DC as Bond, just as I enjoy RM in the role, and appreciate DC for his unique contribution to the character as the brooding/brutal version of Bond.  I think that DC blossomed in the role when he let go the pressure to become something he wasn't and has since gone in his strength.

Re: Best looking/handsome/attractive Bond 1-6

Daniel Craig looks far too craggy for me. He is in the best physical shape out of all of them so I guess that's something.

For me, the Bonds fit into sexy/seductive category and cheesy charmer. Craig, Connery and Dalton as Bond could plausibly bed the women in the film; Brosnan, Moore and Lazenby are comically charming but don't really have any sex appeal. Moore's flirting is just too creepy.

So my list:
Dalton
Connery
Craig
Brosnan
Lazenby
Moore

Re: Best looking/handsome/attractive Bond 1-6

Craig hasn't aged well, although I thought he was attractive in CR.

Re: Best looking/handsome/attractive Bond 1-6

1- Nothing can compare o Lazenby in a wet dress shirt. Yummy. 
2- Dalton. His eyes make me swoon.
3- Brosnan is one pretty man.
4- Craig. He fills out swim trunks well.
5- Connery also looked pretty good in tiny shorts.
6- Moore looks like a weatherman.

It's funny that how most of us men have our way of perceiving which actor would be the most handsome or attractive to a woman in our eyes, yet when a woman shares her oppinion it's usually very different than what 'we' would think.

Which is why a female oppinion like yours is actually a lot more valid towards this topic I would say. I was very suprised to hear my own girlfriend didn't think much of Brosnan and thinks Craig is one of the hottest Bonds. I would have expected Connery and Brosnan to be at the top of every woman's list and Craig and Lazenby to be dismissed immediatly. However Lazenby suprisingly enough wins it for you! Women man, they never sees to amaze me....

P.s the weatherman thing cracked me up

Craig and Lazenby both look like boxers. Lazenby even has the crooked nose (a potential bar fight?) I just can't resist a boxer. Stallone in Roky I is basically the perfect man, turtles and all.

Like I said, you need a woman's perspective to come up with stuff like this!

Out of curiousity, does that mean you also find Robert Di Niro attractive because of his role in Raging Bull?

Still I'm kind of suprised to see Connery so low on your list, I would say he fits the rough type of man you're talking about too, but then  again, I don't look into details like a crooked nose, so what do I know ajb007/tongue

Re: Best looking/handsome/attractive Bond 1-6

It comes down to being sexily damaged. While Connery has the boxer body type, he does not have the brooding eyes. Lazenby, Craig and Dalton have a look in their eyes that says "I am damaged and you can never have my heart." That of course makes me want them!  They key is they do not come across as so screwed up that it is hopeless. Connery and PB are just too smooth. They look like they linger around sorority houses and buy chicks Goldschlager.

And yes, Di Niro, today, tomorrow, forever. Sexily damaged.

Agreed!

But in all seriousness though, I think she did hit the essense of Bond's character there. (Even if we were just looking at the actors) Bond is indeed supposed to be sexually damaged, weither that happened with Tracy or Vesper. (or both if you take the original novel Bond into account) Even as a man I always found that to be one of Bond's most intresting sides. Like Barbara Brocolli once so wonderfully said: "Bond can't have a wife or a family, he has to go out there and protect all of us..."  ajb007/martini  -

He is sexily damaged way before Tracy or Vesper. I think it is from his childhood (shades of Skyfall) and it makes him unable to attach to anyone on a romantic level. And then when he does attach to someone it is contrived (as in it does not seem natural.) I am not sure if he really loved Tracy or if he just really wanted to. I got the feeling with time he could have. Then with Vesper... well I do not now where to start with that. The only other females that he "loved" were Moneypenny and Q. His love of Moneypenny is best seen in OHMSS when he tries to quit and she will not let him. It is a Orphus Rex mother/lover kind of situation that Freud would have loved. Then Q is the mother he never had but he was never really able to express that.
