    First it was Ethan Hawke going grunge, and recently it seems that Josh Hartnett is doing the same thing . . . Is there some kind of hetero world, dark side compact that they sign in blood? . . . Or is it just bad taste? . . .

    One of the mysteries of straight men. I think a lot depends on whether they have a girlfriend or not. It's usually the lady in their lives who smartens them up. Or perhaps they think people will take them more seriously.

    I *think* it's because straight women find the whole grunge thing sexy...

    I don't get it.

    I think Ethan Hawke wouldn't look good if he had Josh Hartnett wrapped around him

    Josh Hartnett on the other hand would look hot in anything

    Ego.
    It's the "I'm-so-hot-I-don't-have-to-bathe" syndrome.

    It's because too much attention makes us uncomfortable. icon_confused.gif

    I try not to judge people over things that don't really matter. I prefer to appreciate and enjoy the uniqueness or eccentricities of people.

    Exactly right!

    I'm pretty sure most of these guys want to find a girl who loves them for who they are and not just how they look.

    Or maybe they just want to look that way which is completely cool.. because it doesn't effect my life.icon_rolleyes.gif

    Because a powerful, mysterious man is sexier than a pretty boy. Pretty boys are like girls, they're always being judged by how they look. Power comes from the freedom of not being judged. Constantly being judged on superficial things is what makes women less powerful and more insecure. You feel powerful when people can't tell you that your eye shadow should be a little more blue, your tie is too patterned, stuff like that. When you look like you don't give a shit you exude confidence and power, people will shut up.

    They're rich. Money trumps looks. Ethan's crooked teeth always had me wondering why he never got them straightened out.
    Side note: Ethan wrote and stars in an interesting Vampire movie coming out in January called Daybreakers:

    To be taken seriously for their talents, not their faces. Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt both did this, with mixed results...

    There speaks a man who has not seen Brad Pitt in Troy.

    He maintains this expression throughout...

    I agree with MICHAEL_MCCARRY.
    Not so sure they find that as sexy as the fame and money that comes along with the celeb.
