Laid Bare with Flair Contest – Day Eleven!

Today, how about some flair?

These are absolutely gorgeous earrings from a lovely etsy seller – Samantha33

I really can’t say enough about etsy as a community. There are SO many items in so many categories. I’ve never had a problem with a seller. My items have always been totally gorgeous, well made and have shipped quickly and efficiently. Bags? Candles? Cups? Glassware? Clothing? Paper products? Jewelry? Etsy has it all and then some.

I’m not getting a kickback or anything, I just really believe in this community and I love to tell people about things when they are so fabulous.

Anyhoodle, today’s question is: Clive Owen, Gerard Butler or Zachary Quinto? Why or why not? And no, you can’t have all three! Don’t worry, I’ll be following up with the female version of this question later on the contest.

I’ll choose a winner at some point tomorrow. I’m traveling to Washington DC for RWA National so it might be a little later than usual! Good luck and remember, you have three days to claim your prize or I’ll re-draw!

    Definitely Gerard Butler. Something so sexy about the accent. He’s so alpha. Loved him in PS I Love you and in the Lara Croft movie even though she had to kill him.

    They all have amazing qualities, but I would have to go with Gerard Butler. P.S. I love you made me bawl my eyes out, but it was just so beautiful…and he was so yummy! The accent. *sigh*

    Please don’t enter me in the contest. Those earrings are gorgeous, but I cant’ wear the dangly ones 🙁

    Gerad Butler – he was hot in Phantom of the Opera and 300 (and all his other roles too lol)… seriously I find him to be a charming and talented actor.

    Clive Owen. I have seen interviews of him and he seems so fun and charming.

    Wow…Clive…Gerard…Clive…Gerard…that’s a toughy. I’ll go with Gerard, that Scottish accent is to die for. Plus, he’s a bit more buff than Clive.

    I adore this man. He is cute, dangerous looking, smart, manly, gorgeous, I love his smile and his sexy, scottish accent…..oh my!!!!

    Clive Owen. Beautiful, sexy eyes. Hunky, georgeous body. Husky, sexy voice. Wonderfully talented on the screen. Makes for an awesome Alpha hero any day. 😉

    Don’t actually know any of them, so I’ll have to say none of the above. Can I pick George Clooney?

    Clive Owens , *drooling on screen and keyboard*. Oh, sorry, you weren’t supposed to see that last part!! 😉

    I choose Clive Owen because he’s a great actor and I love his British accent and he looks hot in a suit.

    Oh Gerard Butler….(sighs and drifts off to happy place) Oh, right, why? We’ve got that delicious accent, those indecently beautiful eyes. He’s such a manly alpha looking man (the trailer for the Gamer does delcious things to me) yet with such a kick ass sense of humor and there’s a sweetness under there too!

    Zachary Quinto….I’ve only seen pics of him in mags and excerpts from Star Trek, but man, he is sexy. Love his eyes.

    Clive Owen, hands down. I like my men to look a bit used.

    Clive Owen hands down. He was so hot as King Arthur, and loved him ever since.

    The earrings are lovely!

    Clive Owen but clean shaven 🙂 No reason but he appeals to me

  38. Cathy M

    Clive Owen for me too. He oozes strength and sexiness without even opening his month, then the accent just pushes him to the top of my list.

    Clive Owen. No doubt. Googled after I chose Clive — to see if any of them smoke. Clive quit in 1988 when daughter born (but smokes herbals for movies only). Gerard and Zachary both smoke still — and they’re younger! Sure turnoffs. Wish you’d include George Clooney in a list! Maybe have a Sexiest Man Alive list from past winners. Just a thought….

    July 13th, 2009 at 11:31 am · Link

    I’m not really a fan of the three listed. Can I pick a different one?(or two) How about Ryan Reynolds or Olivier Martinez? 😀

    Clive Owen becuase he is damn hot!

    Oh gosh – Clive Owen or Gerard Butler is a really tough decision for me. But… I think I like Gerard Butler more consistently (yes, even through the travesty of Phantom of the Opera. Though that, I didn’t like.) So… I’d go with Gerard Butler. I “discovered” him in Dear Frankie, so I’ve definitely got positive association with him.

    Oh- also, please don’t enter me into the drawing. I’m all sorts of allergic to random metal, so those earrings, while super cute, would make my ears explode.

    Everyone seems to be selecting Gerard
    Butler. After seeing all the movie promos
    recently shown on TV, gorgeous eyes not
    withstanding, I just would not choose him.
    Clive Owen or Zachary Quinto? Nice fellows but why not David Boreanaz? I’d select that handsome fellow any time!
