Manly Men

So a group of us had this conversation yesterday and I'd like to open up the floor for discussion. It started off with me recounting to Ariana a recently-viewed FRIENDS episode where Monica is dating Tom Sellick. Bart chimes in that Tom Sellick is such a manly man- a guy's guy. To this Ari & I heartily agreed. So then we proceeded to come up with a short list of other "manly men."
  • Brett Favre
  • Bruce Willis
  • Will Smith
  • Wesley Snipes
  • Robert DeNiro
  • Al Pacino
  • Babe Ruth

Up for debate: Robert Redford, Richard Simmons (just kidding), George Clooney

So I'd like to hear from the peanut gallery. Who do you think qualifies as a manly man? (by definition, a man whom women adore, and guys admire) Do you agree with our choices?

I'm backing our decisions and I don't think Robert Redford should even be a question mark. He's a man's man. I'd also like to add Chris Meloni from Law & Order: SVU. Good guy and a Marine.

I'll add Paul Newman to the list.

Tom Hanks
Mel Gibson (love 'em or hate 'em--he's still manly)
Kevin Costner
Denzel Washington
Clark Gable
William Holden

What can I say, I like the classics...

Babe Ruth? Come on, an overweight womanizing drunk that plays a sport really well?


I mean, really?

You're better than that. You can do better. :)

I'm adding Jack Bauer to the list. And Mitch Rapp. But if we're going solely with real-live people... that may force me to think some.

nope, Babe Ruth stays. He's an American icon. And sorry E, only Real Men count. Go think some more and get back to me.
