This is the sure bet. This is the PROBABLE choice. If you were forced at gunpoint to bet your mortgage on a candidate, it would be him, it would be the safest. People Magazine likes pleasing people. Pattinson is the Goliath. It’s his to lose. But I am a gambler… Take it easy Twi-Hards, it’s not because I don’t like him. Full Story

Brad Pitt

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 5, 2009 06:12:03 November 5, 2009 06:12:03

Arguments for: Always in contention. For many women, he is still the sexiest ideal. Even with that f-cking beard. The father factor. Brad is a doting dad. This gets ‘em moist. Inglourious Basterds did well. Some say it’s still hanging around, lingering on the edges of Oscar consideration, especially now that the Academy has opened up Best Picture to 10 slots. Full Story
