WHO'S HOTTER: (for the bronze)
Ewan McGregor or Ralph Fiennes?
One of these men will be given the bronze medal for hotness. The contrasts could not be more stark. Ralph (left) is known for villians and anti-heroes. He's a brooder. He offers the choice of a dark, tortured, intellectual, unattainable man. It's a definite "type." He's also British. That adds its own layer of mystique and intrigue (at least for those of us who aren't). And he has an old-fashioned, classical sensibility. If you like 'em brooding, stewing, contained and mysterious, Fiennes is your man.
EWAN GORDON McGREGOR
If, however, you prefer a boyish effervescence, Ewan McGregor is your boy. The polar opposite of Fiennes, Ewan offers a more heart-on-his-sleeve sort of appeal, with a grin on his face and a glint in his eye that could melt even the coldest of hearts. Fearless and versatile, Ewan's just as at home playing with lightsabers as he is being drawn on in the nude. His playful Scottish lilt offers a striking contrast to Fiennes' harsh British cadence. Ewan may not be able to quite pull off the brooding thing (though he tried his damnedest in Young Adam), but he can sing, dance, laugh and fight with the best of 'em.
Interestingly enough, each of these actors' most famous roles saw them in doomed affairs with conflicted women. Fall in love with one of them, and you die... the bliss just can't last. Who'd you die for?
