Challenge: Manly Men

As usual, Buddy and I are going at it.
Our most recent "feud" is in regards to the manliest male actor out there.
Turns out he has his version of manly and I got mine.
Clearly I have way better taste in manly men than my straight, male Buddy.  Just sayin...

That being said, we turned our friendly argument into a real life bet.
...and we're talking high stakes here, people!!  Loser buys lunch...

Who better to turn to during this grueling competition than my trusty followers?
I'm leaving my fate and lunch money in your hands!!!

This is how the challenge is going to work.
Buddy and I each picked 3 actors that we feel to be one of the manliest out there.
I'm going to keep our picks anonymous and will list them all for you.
I'm only being anonymous because I know my followers will feel obligated to be loyal.  Right?  Right?!?!
Then, in the comments section you can cast your vote for the manliest actor from our picks.
On Monday I will tally all the votes and announce the winner.

Ok, let's get started!!

1.  Christian Bale


2.  Gerard Butler


3.  Russell Crowe


4.  Chris Hemsworth


5.  Mel Gibson


6.  Dwayne The Rock Johnson


Which of these 6 actors do you think is the "manliest"?

90 comments:

  1. Gerard Butler is def #1, with Russell Crowe as a close 2nd. I'm guessing 2, 4, and 6 are your choices.

    1. One vote for Gerard!!!!!

      I apologize, but the rules of the contest does not allow me to disclose that information. :0)

      Have a lovely weekend, Youngman!

  2. Huh? What was the question? Oh, sorry, got distracted on account of all the manly beauty :) Thanks for that!

    Well, we know how I feel about Russell Crowe, so he is out. I would have to say, in that list, I'd pick Gerard Butler. Lots of testosterone, that guy.

    1. LMAO I don't blame...I totally scrolled up a few times just to look at the "manliness". Oh YUM!! hahaha Nice gift for a Friday, no?? lol

      Vote 2 for Gerard!!!!

  3. Russell Crowe. He owns a farm, a sporting team, he's punched a man, in a band, has many phones to dispense on call, and is a dude. He set the scruffy down to earth aussie image that everyone from this country has been copying since.

    Probably a wanker, I have never met him despite Australia only being 22 million people, but he is manly and I still enjoy his movies (except Robin Hood). If he was any more manly he would own Manley and not the South Sydney Rabbitohs. (Australian joke. Two actually if you include South Sydney. Go the Tigers!)

    1. Rusty, only because I read that imagining your sexy accent am I go to pretend like I know what that means!! hahahaha I don't know what a Ribbitoh is or a South Sydney. I know what a tiger is, but I don't think we're talking about the same thing ;)

      Vote 1 for Russell Crowe.

  4. Bruce Willis should be on this list. But I would say Russell Crowe, even though Mel Gibson is my favorite of the bunch.

  8. I'm going with gerard butler. I first fell in love with him when he was the very manly phantom of the opera. And then 300? He wins. (Christian Bale in second)

    1. I never saw his manly adapation of Phantom of the Opera, but I'm sure he rocked it :)

  9. actually, and let the expert tell you :), the manliest man is Jason Statham! Men love him, ladies would die for him, both would marry him if they could :)
    From your list Gerry Berry is the manliest, trust me, he saduced tones of ladies in my country while shooting CORIOLANUS. He also enjoys life and has a lovely humour, which men love too.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Jason Statham was mentioned, but got beat out by one of the above contenders. Mainly because I am very unfamiliar with his work and when his name was brought up I said, who?? lol

      Omg...why didn't you tell me he was filming there!!! I would let him seduce me ;)

      Vote 5 - Gerard Butler

      Delete
    2. I'll second Jason Statham - hello yummy!!

      Delete
  10. I don't even have to think about it. Gerard Butler. I'm almost ashamed to tell you how many times I've watched 300. Russel is gross, not manly and the Rock is handsome and manly but not as manly as Gerard. It's not scientific but it works for me!!

    1. Girl, I want to comment SO BADLY at what you just said, but I can't... You have been reading my blog for a while though so you may be able to pick up where I stand ;)

    2. Rock is nice manly, Gerry is naughty manly :) Rock is family material, Gerry is bedtime material. And Dezzy is the mix of both LOL :)

  11. being a heterosexual man, maybe you should only count my vote as a 1/2 vote--but I would go with Crowe.

    1. LOL You get a full vote, Anthony. No worries!!

      Vote 4 - Crowe

  12. The Rock... because he was a legit athlete before he became an actor. Plus he's Samoan. Do they NOT make manly men?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Samoans are a very manly breed ;)

      Vote 2 - The Rock

  13. Christian Bale and Chris Hemsworth, sorry not that I am anti-American.

    I remember Rock adorning our house during my teen years, my brother used to fan of him bigtime, did you see his movies and jazz dance moves? Mel Gibson is brutally awesome too.

    Gerard Butler? Seriously? I am sure everytime he raises his voice he farts. What has yelling and talking with pebbles in mouth have got anything to do with manliness? Just kidding.

    Chris Bale and Hunksworth get my vote.

    ReplyDelete
  14. LOL I think you just said the definition of a man when describing Mr. Butler ;) Just sayin... LOL

    You can't vote for 2 men!! Only one can be the manliest. Who's your pick??? I'm dying to know!! :) :) :)

    1. Got to be Christian Bale, forget his "peas in pod" teeth, I got to give it to him, he scores 9.9 in scale of 1-10.

    2. Ok...vote 1 - Christian Bale.

      Peas in a pod teeth?? hahahahahahaha Did I mention I L-WORD you? lol

  15. I'm all for Jon Hamm and whatever that guy's name is that plays Alcid on True Blood. I don't know how manly I think Christian Bale is, but I do love him and think he's a mighty talented actor. Mel Gibson I wouldn't call manly, 'cause real men don't have to hate whole portions of the human race. Real men have the self esteem to have compassion. I guess my version of manliness is different from most folks' too. Out of your list I think I'd choose Russell Crowe. That guy has been uber manly since I first spied him in LA Confidential and fell in love.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's one thing I can agree with...Bale is certainly as excellent actor. His performance in Fighter was AMAZING!! He may take his job too seriously, but he gets results ;)

      Vote 5 - Crowe

      You fell in love with Crowe? Totally did not see that coming girl!!

  16. None of them! Chuck Norris is the manliest! DUHHHH!! (I didn't even know "manliest" was a word until today. Shows how unmanly I am!)

    1. Hmm, so are you going with Russell Crowe or Chris Hemsworth? You need to pick one for your vote to count ;) Ahh, I want to say something so badly, but I can't without giving it away!!! lol

    2. Ugh! I'm gonna go with Gladiator Russell Crowe. Because damn.

    3. Okk, you're vote #6 for Mr. Crowe ;)

      Delete
  19. LMAO well I know which ones are yours, but I'll keep it to myself. Yes! Bruce Willis should have been on there.

    Hemsworth is too much of a pretty boy, same with the Rock, oh so flashy. Bale umm no, he's just too I don't know but he is it haha. Gerard yeah and Crowe, hate him but yeah. Gibson is my favorite of the bunch but he has too many issues, as does Crowe. So I guess Gerard wins.

    Still want Willis though, hmph.

    1. Yes, Bruce Willis is pretty manly, but he didn't make the cut ;)

    1. Fair enough, Bama. But, assuming you're correct and they can only act like men...let's put it to you this way. In comparison to each other, who would you say is the manliest?

      vote 3 - The Rock

      Enjoy your trip home girl xo

  26. I have to go with The Rock. He can be brutal and tender and is very charming and funny and doesn't intimidate me. I had a buddy who was the ninth child. All boys and one girl. They all were handsome as fuck. Movie star good looks and charm up the wazzooo. One was a european fashion model. They were the coolest guys I ever knew because they knew that being good looking meant making everyone else feel comfortable. They knew the power of their looks. The Rock seems to be the guys who most understands that. Man, I have ISSUES! lol

    What happen to cock-o-the week Michael Fassbinder?

    1. LOL It's true that very good people could be intimidating and immediately conceived as "cocky". Kudos to your friends for recognizing that!!! :)
