WHO'S HOTTER: (round three)
Monty Clift or Daniel Craig?


Why is he hot?
Monty has reached the kind of iconic status where you stop asking why he's hot, and just worship him. But it has something to do with his being a great (and great-looking) actor who happened to be gay in old Hollywood. Tortured souls are sexy. Being gay is sexy.

Hotter than:
Jamie Bell
Rock Hudson

Hottest role:
I have little direct experience with Monty's work, but I've inferred that the answer is either Suddenly Last Summer or A Place in the Sun. Monty + Liz = ouch, too hot for my eyes! UPDATE: I've been told Sun is where Monty burns brightest; Summer is Liz's show.


Why is he hot?
For reasons entirely different from Monty's; Daniel's more of a badass than a tortured soul. And anyone who can work a tux, a speedo AND full-on nudity this well has my love. Plus, when he looks at you, you feel dirty. That's always a plus.

Hotter than:
Chris Evans
Cary Grant

Hottest role:
This is hard. James Bond would be the obvious choice, but there's really a LOT of other stuff out there: his brooding killer in Infamous, his manly poet in Sylvia, his all-brawn younger man in The Mother. Plus, he played Francis Bacon's oft-nude gay lover in Love is the Devil: Study for a Portrait of Francis Bacon. That's hard to top.

Tough one. They're like... opposite kinds of hot. One is classically gorgeous and the other one's just oozes sex.

I guess I'll go with Craig.

I really love this picture of Monty. I'm not sure what it is - maybe that little bit of facial hair? - but something about it makes him hotter than ever before, IMO.

Monty. Daniel can be hot but a lot of the time he looks like he just swallowed the contents of an ashtray and followed that with a bucket of lemons.

Monty is always sexy though.

Glenn, you crack me up. And the best part about that comment is that it's true.
