  • Turner Edwards

    Jude Law FTW!!! Just look at those eyes!

    • marco5ny

      Definitely.  It’s the only ad that suggests some sort of storyline for me.

  • Frank_821

    Oh that’s easy. Clive

    It’s naturally exuding from him

    although Ricardo Montalban will always be mas macho

    • ChristySchiff

       Ricardo Montalban forever!

      • maggiemaybe

        Look what they’ve done to his car!

      • Snarky_Amber


    • ChristySchiff

       Ricardo Montalban forever!

    • mixedupfiles

       Clive wants to have sex with me. I can tell.

  • Jude, definitely, hands down, no contest.

  • Jude Law!  and then Clive.

    • Clive looks, and seems, like a mature man who would make good choices.  Jude Law, on the other hand, is BAD, and we all know it!  Makes him more appealing.

  • Nikki Jeffries

    Justin all the way!

  • Clive Owen all the way – and Justin Timberlake rather than Orlando Bloom? 

  • Clive…sigh…..

  • Come to me, Clive!

  • Anathema_Device

    Jude Law wins in my book. Clive Owen looks like he just smelled a fart. Yes, handsome and all, but the expression is lacking.

    I just laughed when I got to Timberlake. Justin, if you can’t run with the big dogs, stay on the porch.

    • pattyw

       My thoughts exactly. I can’t take Timberlake seriously as a sex symbol.

      • But….he brought sexy back. 

      • I always think of D— in a box when I see him…snark….

    • “If you can’t run with the big dogs, stay on the porch” in regards to Justin Timberlake may be the best quote I’ve ever heard.

    • AwwwTrouble

      Timberlake has developed into a very good looking man (somewhat surprisingly, to be honest!).  But this ad is doing him no favors.  I think Jude Law wins, but mostly because the picture is the best one to be selling the cologne.  Clive is good, but there’s something off in his expression – not fully making eye contact?  And poor Justin – just wrong wrong wrong.  He coulda been a contender!  

      • Anathema_Device

        I think Timberlake is pretty funny and appealing. I love his stuff with Lonely Island. But he is soooo out of his league here.

    • Oh Snap!

    • Ha! That’s brilliant. I totally agree. 

  • JUDE! As soon as those eyes hit me, I melted.

  • hillmad

    Clive, with Jude a close second and Justin a distant third.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    Is this a serious question? Clive Owen for Supreme Winner of Everything!

  • Jude Law, but then I’ve always been a sucker for a nautical theme.

  • BazoDee


  • nancymae

    Clive es mas macho! But Jude is rather dashing.

  • Clive Owen, hands down.  The other two weren’t even competition.

  • I real life, Clive is the hottest, but Jude is showing them how they do it at the still pictures.

    • jane_bloggs

       Completely agree.  Clive is gorgeous, but Jude is SERVING IT.

  • TAGinMO

    Winner: Clive

    Runner-up: Jude

    Needs to be hit in face with folding chair: JT.

  • AwesomeMargie

    Ahaha!  I love it!  Quien es mas macho?  
    Jude Law is looking good but something about Clive Owen that just makes me feel all twirly inside.  
    JT looks like he just wants to piss on me in the shower.  Pass.

  • LongTall_Sally

    I’m having trouble picking between Jude and Clive.  I will have to flip back and forth between their pictures for a few hours to decide . . .

    • Stage_Left

      Yeah me too.  These pictures aside, I prefer Clive, but Jude is serving up some great face.  I call it a tie.

  • Julie Fountain

    Clive Owen.  This isn’t even a contest.  I mean, I love me some Jude Law, but he doesn’t hold a candle to Clive.  And Timberlake? Srsly?

  • filmcricket

    Clive, then Jude, then Timberlake waaaaaay at the back. I don’t hate JT, but there is nothing about him that’s macho. Clive on the other hand is making me drool.

  • Angel Ratliff

    Clive Owen, without a doubt.

  • Cheri Lee

    I’m giving this one to Jude. 

  • I generally like Clive the best but it’s kind of a wussy picture. I vote JUDE LAW.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Or is it just a great “Fuck, Marry, Kill” round?

    • TAGinMO

      I think they’ve already been placed correctly for that game. Is there even a remotely plausible alternative order?

    • Erica Magelky

      Fuck Clive. 
      Marry Jude. 
      Kill JT. 

      It took me longer to type that than it did to decide on the arrangement. 

      •  Yes please.

        • Ew, no. Jude’s a skeezy cheater, isn’t he? Didn’t he get the nanny pregnant or something similar? Fuck him but marry Clive.

          •  Huh, I hadn’t heard that.  But even if it’s true, I couldn’t marry Clive.  With those bedroom eyes, I’d never make it into my wedding dress.

      • butterflysunita

        Poor JT.  He looks so adolescent and hopelessly outclassed that I don’t even want to kill him.  Let him just drive off.  

      • butterflysunita

        Poor JT.  He looks so adolescent and hopelessly outclassed that I don’t even want to kill him.  Let him just drive off.  

      • tsid2012

        Hmmmm…. since it isn’t legal for me to marry a man in my state, I’ll have to fuck both Clive & Jude, marry no one and kill JT.  I’m ok with that…..

  • Rebecca Johnson

    Justin appears to be driving in the ocean, and Jude looks like he’s checking in with his wingman before going after the girl in the hat. Clive, on the other hand, is giving major bedroom eyes. If the idea is to appeal to women, Clive all the way.

    • Sobaika Mirza

      They are men’s colognes, so I don’t think the idea is to appeal to women. They all seem that way, don’t they?

      • Summer On The Beach

         I’m pretty sure that most men’s cologne is purchased by women for their husbands or boyfriends, so yes, the ads would be aimed at women.  I would like to smell Jude Law.

        •  Exactly. I think very few men buy their own cologne.

        • Jackie Lorden

          Clive.  No Question.

      • Father’s Day is just around the corner! And what better gift for hubby than to ask him to smell like Justin Timberlake! Not!

      • moppet

         I think I disagree. Who mostly buys men’s cologne? I would bet that it is women, on behalf of their menfolk. We’re supposed to think, I guess, that if we buy the right cologne, our boyfriends/husbands will turn into Ciive Owen. If only.

      • muzan-e

        I think they’re supposed to appeal to men’s idea of what might appeal to women.

        … goodness, that’s a pretzel-shaped bit of reasoning.

  • Clive, then Jude.  Justin just doesn’t come close.

  • I like the use of blue in Jude’s ad (those eyes!), but I want to go where JT’s going! I’ll always love Clive, but his ad is boring. Not only do I not know what he smells like, I don’t really care.

  • sarahofalessergod

    Jude.  The JT one just makes me laugh.

  • CLIVE!!  Jude is a very close second.  Poor Justin just pales in comparison. 

  • Pennymac

    Toss up between Clive and Jude, but leaning toward Clive. Justin?  Hahaha….NO.

  • msftmargarita

    Clive Owen hands down

  • Patricia Hoffman

    Clive Owen. Always.

  • Jude Law had the best photo with that intense gaze, but Clive Owen is my favorite in other contexts.

  • AnaRoW


  • As much as I wish I could say Jude Law because I love him, I gotta give it to Clive!  WOW.

  • bookish

    Clive wins!

  • Clive by a million miles…

  • beebee10

    Hands down Clive. Classic smolder. No frills. 
    That girl and the boat with Jude moves it into douchy-territory and Justin looks like a 11 year old behind the wheel. 

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Clive Owen FTW!!
    Jude looks pissed. He’s looking back at me saying “NO I did NOT sleep with her already, OK?!?” 
    Justin looks like a 14 year old taking dad’s car for a joy ride.

  • Clive all the way.

  • pattyw

    Close call between Jude and Clive. I gotta give it to Jude’s blue eyes.

  • Clive Owen. Difficult to decide who comes last between young douche and ageing douche.

  • In these shots, the order is exactly as posted. Jude is definitely the most intense. Justin looks like a boy next to the other two men.

  • GorgeousThings

    You know, Jude is getting better as he gets older, but I still give the edge to Clive.

  • poggi

    I am going with Clive.  Jude needs a boat, a girl, and his jacket casually thrown over his shoulder to achieve the same effect.  And Justin,even though he is driving a car with a manly wooden steering wheel with license plates that probably say “IMASTUD,” is a distant third.  

  • Carrie Levin

    Clive, Clive, Clive!!!

  • Kayceed

    Clive, then that cad, then that mouseketeer.

  • I gotta give it to Jude.  Normally I would be all over JT, but I think he looks so douchey in that picture.  Clive is a close second for such a great smolder.

  • Annie Leung

    Clive Owen!!! If Troy Barnes understands why women find him attractive to the point where he might as well be attracted to him, I can really see no other. 

  • Clive!
    Jude looks fine here but Justin can drive off a cliff for what I care.

  • kimmeister

    Jude’s “Blue Steel” is better, but Clive looks more macho.

  • Clive all the way. Jude’s hairline is looking a little over airbrushed. Justin looks like a little boy in comparison to the grownups.

  • Jude Law.

  • jude. jude. jude.
    nicely done 🙂

  • MrsJude

    Sitting in a puddle, must say it’s Jude Law

  • clive

  • guestela


  • ChaCha_70

    Gotta give my vote to my boy, Jude Law. He’s got those dreamy, bedroom eyes. *sigh*

  • Scarlet39


  • quiltwombat

    No question – it’s Clive all the way.  Yummo!

  • Kate4queen

    so torn… Jude just over Clive.

  • Jennifer Coleman

    Tsk. Justing clearly cannot hang. He can’t even get a closeup & has to share the add with a convertible.

    Clive in my book.

  • Jude, always Jude.

  • StillGary

    I like the old spice guy — I gotta picture of him on my desktop — shirtless, wearing a fair Isle scarf!

  • Michelle Wann Haynes


  • Clive.
    Jude’s face says, ‘I’ma bone that lady.’
    Clive’s says, ‘I’ma bone YOU.’
    Also, Justin’s is called “play sport”
    Jude’s is “sport”
    and Clive’s says “Man.”
    So I mean….really. Man.

  • Jude would win if he didn’t have his hand appearing oddly under his chin. So Clive wins instead.

    Now, I’ve had varying levels of crushes on JT, but he’s pretty laughable giving Blue Steel.

  • Jenna Kuhmann

    I love me some Justin.  He looks hot.

  • Cathy S

    Jude, with Clive a close second.

  • VicksieDo

    JUDE!  So hot

  • Joyce VG

    Clive Owen please.  *swoon*

  • Jude Law gets me everytime. 

  • Clive.

  • I see Jude’s and I think, “Sold.  Wrapped up.  Don’t even see the others.”  But, out of curiosity, I scroll down to Clive, and I think, “HELLO!”.  After that, I kind of want to scratch Justin behind the ears and give him a treat for trying so hard.

  • Derek_anny

    From a modeling standpoint, as posted.  Jude, then Clive, then Justin.
    From an advertising standpoint, these are all rather bad.  Justin’s is the best of the three, because James Dean isn’t going anywhere.  Jude and Clive are a bit too Rico Suave.  They should have used a shot of Jude walking down the dock and looking over his shoulder.  That would have been actually good.

  • Clive.  The only one with any sense of proportion/humor.  “Oh, yes, we both know this is very silly–but seriously, I smell awesome right now.”

  • carpediva

    Clive. Clive. Clive.

    Also? Jude Law doesn’t look like that anymore.

  • Clive all the way!!!

  • brookeinmn

    Clive FTW! So hot!

  • AlexisPayne

    Clive, Clive, Clive!!!!

    Jude, a close second.

  • Of these three, it would always be Clive Owen. BUT I gotta say he isn’t looking his most steely in this photo; he’s been steelier (and what’s with the hand?). So I think Jude Law wins it with his blue eyes set by the sea.

  • Justin Timberlake looks like a digitized version of his wax statue. 
    Jude Law is doing something weird with his hand. Are you crushing my head, Jude?Clive Owen clearly wins this.

    • OK, I get now that Jude is slinging his jacket over his shoulder, but still… awkward.

  • Really?  This is a question?

    Clive Owen.

  • Totally Clive!

  • j_anson

    Clive Owen, clearly.

  • Can we just call it a tie and have a happy love fest with all of them?

  • gsk241

    As handsome as Clive is, I’m giving this one to Jude!

  • lordandtaylor

    Jude Law to win. The devil in his eye…
    Clive just looks sooo, hmmm, ummm…empty. Like an episode of SMASH.
    Justin tries to look Macho, he ends up looking like a kid playing dress up.

  • Carla_Charlton

    We have a winner — there is just something about Jude Law….

    Clive Owen reminds me too much of Nicholas Cage.

    I can already picture Justin Timberlake as a retiree in La Boca Vista, so no.

  • While I love all 3 Clive is eye-fucking the shit out of the camera!

  • mozzer0906

    Rank:  1) Clive (hands down) 2) JT 3) Jude Law

  • OH. MY.  I think I might linger on this post all day.  It might take me that long to decide 🙂

  • Clive. No question.

  • RoxieRider

    Going just on the ads, Jude gets this one. He’s bringing it. I can take or leave Jude in general, but that spot is excellent. Clive trails by a hair. I blame whoever picked this picture.

    Justin looks AI.

  • Jude Law! 

  • MilaXX

    Clive for the win!

  • calimon

    Bulgari….oh, I mean Clive O. for me, purrrr favorrrr!

  • Judy_J

    Clive Owen gets my vote.

  • Aly Light

    Jude Law all the way. You’ll announce the results of this, yes?

  • Aiiiyyeeeeee.  Jude.  Clive is a VERY close second.  Poor JT just isn’t cutting it here. 

  • Close between Jude and Clive, but I give the edge to Jude.

  • moppet

    Clive Owen. I mean, let’s be serious. 

  • TieDye64

    Jude’s giving the best Blue Steel. Clive is bringing the macho. Gee, what a surprise. Ha.

  • Allyson Wells

    Clive and Jude are a tie for me… poor Justin doesn’t come close. 

  • Nithya Subramanian

    Jude’s got the blue eyes and he’s helped by the setting, but Clive, oh my God. All he needs is that stare. And he’s not even trying. 
    JT: go sing a song somewhere. 

  • without doubt, clive owen.
    hot damn, his face should be illegal. 

  • MissAnnieRN


    Why does JT even bother?  He looks like such a cheese dick compared to the other 2.

  • I love me some Jude Law, but I gotta say he looks a little predatory here.  I’m going to have to give it to Clive.  Like many of the other posters here, JT just kind of made me cringe.  It’s almost like his inclusion was a joke, just for a good guffaw.

  • Wow, Jude is definitely giving some grade A Blue Steel there, but the smell of douche still comes off too strongly.  Timberlake might win in a round with Justin Bieber and one of the Jonas Bros, not with these two though.  I have to go with my man Clive.

  • J Law, Cee O and J Tizzy in that order.

  • Joseph Davidson

    Clive Owen.  Always and forever.

  • If I were judging the people alone, Clive would win.  If judging the photographs alone, Jude would win.

    Was Justin supposed to be a serious candidate?

  • carolynmo


  • BeeBeauNYC

    Jude’s giving the “I want to seduce you on a boat before we do it” look, while Clive is giving the “get naked and get over here now” look. Both looks are perfectly acceptable, but I’m kinda in the mood to get seduced, so I’m going with Jude.

  • kam_11

    I miss Virgins v. Vixens!

  • As much as I hate the guy, Jude is giving some serious attitude in that photo thus making him the winner. JT is looking at me like I just said something stupid. SHUT UP, JT. STOP JUDGING ME.

  • lilibetp

    Clive Owen.

  • deathandthestrawberry

    Clive. Always.

  • Clive Wins! 

    Jude is a pretty close second (and I cannot stand him usually), but Justin just looks a bit weird frankly. 

  • ChristySchiff

    Jude Law *is* burning his eyes right into my soul (where he can see that we are meant for each other), but I’m going to have to go with Clive on this one.  I never thought I’d nominate a “Clive” as Most Macho – but he’s the most manly of these three (as his bottle clearly states).

  • Clive Owen, obvi

  • Judy_S

    I’m a sucker for Clive Owen. The others look fine but he looks FINE.

  • paultoes






  • Jessica Eveland

  • For me, it’s Jude.

  • For me, it’s Jude.

  • PastryGoddess

    Jude and Clive need to get naked for me to make a final decision.

    Pippy doesn’t even come close

  • PastryGoddess

    Jude and Clive need to get naked for me to make a final decision.

    Pippy doesn’t even come close

  • mayavaly

     Honestly, this just made my day.

  • mayavaly

     Honestly, this just made my day.

  • Jude Law! Why is this even a question?

  • Jude Law! Why is this even a question?

  • SEK

    Clive Owen. Definitely.

    Shame on you for even including JT in this! He looks like such a kid, trying way too hard to be in the big leagues.

  • i need to know who is bigger, something tells me it’s Owen

  • jw_ny

    I gotta say Jude in this case.  Love me some Clive, but Jude has got the look in his eye that just says “yeh, I’m about to get me some of that!”   That ad tells a story and his blue steel is what sells it.  The others kind of fall flat in that way…although Clive does look amazingly handsome and sexy.  I’d never have recognized Justin in that pic…he actually looks hot there…lol.

  • Moondancer5

    Clive. Oh baby. He’s the only MAN there….

  • Please.  No contest.  Clive Owen.  Though I must say, I don’t think Jude Law is macho in the least, and he’s giving some great Blue Steel here.

  • rainwood1

    Another Clive vote both in the ads and real life.  The photo of Jude Law is good, but only a strong second and I don’t think he’s at all hot in real life anymore.  I’ve never thought Justin Timberlake was hot so he’s my not so surprising last place.   

  • Jude Law. No contest. Timberlake will always look like a cute little boy to me and Clive is my pick for boyfriend but he always has a look on his face like he is just waiting for me to sit down on a whoopie cushion. Works to have him around the house and keep me entertained but doesn’t sell me cologne. I can’t be the only one who thinks he always looks like he is up to something. 

  • sleepycat

    Jude law

  • Oh, and can we please have a “Quien es mas macho?” every week?  Please?

  • Jess5628

    I love Clive, but I’m going to have to give this one to Jude. Poor JT.

  • joolyz

    i gotta go with jude law and his gorgeous eyes.

  • It’s Jude Law.  And it don’t even think he’s that good looking.

  • SpcilK

    Clive Owen Please!

  • JUDE LAW ! Then Clive Owen. Justin Timberlake is nothing here.

  • PaulaBerman

    Clive Owen hands down. Jude Law looks douchey and Justin Timberlake looks 12.

  • Adriana_Paula

    Oh please: Clive!  Timberlake looks like a mewling boy next to him.

  • Jude Law and he’s never been one of my favorites.  I don’t care how hard Justin tries, he is forever in my mind a Mousketeer and not macho to me.

  • Julaine Morley

    The only possible one: Clive

  • Jude and Clive are equal to me here for different reasons.  Justin just looks silly.  no es macho.

  • Clive, by a mile. Timberlake looks like an idiot.

  • Definitely Clive.

  • Lisa Kramp

    Timberlake looks like he’s mad at you. I have long adored Jude, but the clear winner here is Clive. Makes me glad, do you hear me? GLAD to be a woman!

  • I love me some Jude Law, but Clive Owen is the winner in this race.

  • Terence Ng

    Jude Law, which is sad…

  • Pshh…Jude Law & Justin Timberlake don’t hold a candle to Clive Owen!

  • Clive Owen is mas maccho

  • hmariec19

    Clive FTW, but Jude looks good too.  JT exudes nothing but douche.

  • Jude Law, although Clive is a strong contender. Who let Justin Timberlake in this competition?

  • Definitely NOT Timberlake. I will always say yes to Clive Owen, though. 

  • RebeccaKW

    Jude Law.  His eyes are drawing me in…Clive is looking good, but he can’t beat the Jude Law baby blues.

    Normally, I like JT, but that ad is laughably bad.

  • Amy

    I say Jude “look at that woman on the end of the pier I am about to grab and have my way with while smelling of machismo before I do a Michael Bay choreographed leap into the boat that is “safely” docked and ride off into the sunset shirtless” Law.

  • giiiirrrr

    Clive is looking hot.  I’m looking forward to JT aging a bit more.  He’s already pretty damned fine, I just like my dudes a little craggier.  Jude Law, really?  He’s about as macho as my chihuahua-terrier mix, and not *nearly* as cute.

  • Elaine Wiles

    Jude/Clive tie

  • megohd

    It is NOT Timberlake, that’s for sure.

  • rumcg66


  • I have to vote for Jude Law even though I like Clive Owen better. They shouldn’t have made Clive clean shaven. Tsk tsk.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    Yep, just took another look at the guys and it’s still Clive for the win!


  • wow Justin Timberlake barely looks recognizable …

  • Yosa Addiss

    Clive Owen for the WIN!

  • DinaSews

    Clive.  Old school sexy.  Jude looks good but I’m not into bad boy sexy anymore.

  • Hetha Innis

    Clive Owen!

  • Rand Ortega

    Sorry Justin. That “Look! Ain’t I cool?  My dad let me borrow his car!” look doesn’t work for me.
    Clive says, “2 more drinks & I’m Richard Burton”, so, no.
    Jude is the only 1 that exudes the right amount of bad boyishness (“You know what I’ve done. Are you still game?”) w/ maturity (“I don’t trust you, either. Let’s go”).
     Jude FTW

  • Snailstsichr

    Jude Law. Those eyes…

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    why is justin timberlake driving? where is he going? is he supposed to look like he’s thinking about me? he’s not thinking about me, he’s never met me. it looks like he’s thinking about what’s on the radio, or maybe that he wants a sandwich. he doesnt even look like he’s thinking about jessica beal. mostly, actually, he kind of looks photoshopped in there or, at the very least, that the car is on set somewhere & he’s sitting in it against maybe a blue screen.

    otoh, i have a harder time separating jude law from sienna miller than he did & i cannot stand sienna miller. so theres that. also, clive owen’s been married for nearly two decades, correct? he wins for winning the decent human being stakes. i dont care what any of them smell like.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    Jude Law. Ai papi.

  • TSkot

    Jude FTW!

  • Clive Owen no contest.

    JT looks like he broke out of the nursery school and is making off with some old lady’s car.

  • Gotta go with Jude, hands down.  Clive gets some golf claps for a strong second.  Love me some JT normally, but he is not on his game here at all.  

  • Snarky_Amber

    Clive. Related: Hummina hummina.

  • Emily Scott

    I had to break it down by what I thought was sexier, Jude’s intensity or Clive’s confidence. Had to go with Clive. He’s channeling that easy suaveness that Cary Grant had and George Clooney inherited, which is HOT. And mas macho.

    Justin doesn’t do it for me anyway, but that ad isn’t remotely macho or sexy.

  • Jessi03

    Looking at these I’m curious as to how Clive Owen has not yet played James Bond.

  • meridian5

    Clive for the win!

  • Justin??????


  • Rachel Dudney


  • Clive. The other two don’t look like men at all, they look like boys.

  • ClevelandburbsBeth

    Clive, Clive, then Jude. Even Troy from Community would agree…
    “I can see why women find Clive Owen attractive, to the point where I might as well be attracted to him”

  • julnyes

    The order posted is correct. Jude Law is best, but Clive is a close second. Justin is a very distant third – I find him amusing, but he is really a babe in the woods compared to Jude and Clive.

  • Sara__B

    Clive. No contest.

  • Jude looks like he’s about to hop in a boat with Ripley. And we all know how that turned out!

  • Ogden1990

    One of these things is not like the others, one of things doesn’t belong…………..ahem….Justin….

  • PeggyOC

    Owen.  Jude looks good there, but he’s got just enough eud d’douchbag in his general nature that my vote goes to Owen.  JT looks like a Ken doll.

  • out for a walk

    Jude. Clive looks too much like Mel Gibson in that shot, and while I do like JT he just looks silly here.

  • StrandedFashionista

    Jude law for the color contrast of his eyes against the blue background alone. What a stunning photograph- what a sexy man.

  • Jude Law!

  • Clive.  He also benefits from the elegance of black and white imagery.

  • SapphoPoet

    Jude Law. No question. He’s really giving that camera what-for.

    Clive is handsome, but not commanding. Justin looks like a little boy pretending to drive Daddy’s car.

  • Jasmaree

    Jude Law. Definitely.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    All I can think when I see JT is some corporate suit saying “I understand that he tests very well with our demographic, let’s do it.”  No me gusta.

  • Kristy Evans

    Oh, Clive. Swoon.

    I prefer Justin in motion – singing or dancing or being funny.

    • ClevelandburbsBeth

      Yep, you nailed it. He is sexy in motion. Which is better than what I’ve got goin on – sexy IN THEORY, but not necessarily in practice 😉

  • Jude all the way!!

  • Elizabeth Silverstein

    Clive, always Clive. 

  • SapphoPoet

    TLo, will you tell us who wins?

  • padma s

    Jude Law. As if there were any other. Though I would expected Clive Owen at least present some form of competition. I guess I should feel bad that JT does not even figure in my consideration but I don’t.


    Clive FTW!  Man o man o man!  
    Jude is giving some good fierceness, but I am distracted by the abundance of photoshopped hair.  He just isn’t rocking that much hair anymore.  Even the menfolk are being messed with by photoshop!  When will the madness end!  And JT, you are hilarious and should not be trying to be so serious.  I can’t help but picture him as Beyonce’s backup dancer, or with his dick in a box!!!

  • TheLaurenJean

    Going with Jude on this one.

  • Elena Krafcik

    Jude Law, not even close. Clive Owen does nothing for me, and Justin’s ad just seems like a joke next to the other two.

  • annrr

    Clive by a landslide. Jude looks great but Timberlake, not so much.

  • In this set of pictures, Jude all the way. (In day-to-day life, a closer call between Jude and Clive, but I don’t like this picture of Clive. There’s no “there” there)

  • Clive Owen!!!

  • ErmengardeGreen

    Tight race between Jude and Clive; I give Clive the edge. Justin is nowhere. 

  • Maribeth Foley

    CLIVE, hands down!!!! 

  • reddhouston

    I don’t even like Jude Law but I’m going to have to vote for him on this one….that’s a serious look he’s giving.

  • M Carlson

    Oh Clive Owen, puh-lease. He has a face that says, “I’m a macho cologne man who will break your heart and leave my scent on your pillows. You’ll cry even harder when you bury your face to sob over my goodbye.”

  • joything

    Jude is the LAW, but Clive Owen is MINE.

  • Definitely Jude!

  • Alexandra

    Jude Law, no doubt!  His eyes are by far the most piercing 

  • Clive Owen, always.

  • closetfashiondiva

    I see Clive Owen and a I see a man.  I see Jude and Justin and I see boys, most likey whiny boys at that.  Give me a grown man every single time!

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    Oooooh – torn between Jude Law and Clive Owen…

    Clive Owen

    He wins purely on the basis that I bumped into him and his wife at a Buster Keaton screening at the Barbican Centre in London many moons ago.  If he’s a Keaton fan – he’s okay by me.

  • Jude Law…

  • Elizabeth Wiggs Maas

    I think it’s J-Timbs. Jude Law…feh. And then Clive is giving this weird face, like there’s something on his upper lip that smells bad but he’s trying to pretend it’s not there.

  • EEKstl

    Jude made me pause my scroll but Clive made me come to a full dead stop.  Clive all the way.  Oh, there was a third contestant?  Sorry, Justin.

  • Greg Yoder

    Jude.  Clive has the stuff, but he is not bringing it in this ad.

  • Nariya

    Jude was looking great, until I scrolled down and Clive’s eyes SLAYED me. I guess Justin’s probably supposed to appeal to my demographic but he really drew the short end of the stick, appearing behind those other two.

  • The only one who does even a little something for me is Clive. I’m voting with my loins, sue me.


    Clive, Obvi. The other two look like very pretty kid brothers.

  • PaperPusher2


  • The American boy child can’t even compete against the two panty-dropping Brits.

  • guest2visits

     Has to be Clive.  No contest-o.

  • OmegaMu

    Jude has the boat, Justin has the car… Clive is the only one that can stand on his own!

  • clive.  no doubt.

  • another_laura

    Clive Owen.  Now and forever.  Followed by Jude Law.  Timberlake does not register.

  • achristmascactus

    As if! Clive all the way!

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    Oh, no question – Jude Law.  Always and forever, Jude Law.  Over just about anybody – Jude Law. 

  • benjamin478

    clive then jude then justin.

  • jjfg

    I have to go Jude Law, although Clive Owen’s photo isn’t half bad.  Although if Jude Law were Christopher Meloni giving that look (as only he can)- game frikin’ over. 

  • PeaceBang

    Totally Jude. No question. That Justin Timberlake thing is squicky. 

  • tsid2012

    Clive Owen!  He’s the mostly “manly” of the three here.  I, for one, do not get the appeal of Justin Timberlake at all.  And jude law is certainly an attractive man but mostly I want to feed him pasta and put a few inches on his waistline.  I could snap him like a twig….

  • I wouldn’t kick any of these guys out of my bed, but Clive is definitely winning.

  • Jude Law for sure.  Clive is coming in at a close second.

  • mjude

    i think i must do 🙂 clive, but jude is a close 2nd.

  • splix71

    Jude, then Clive, then….no. Just Jude and Clive.

  • Clive. Justin wishes he were that hot.

  • Andrea Rossillon

    That Jude Law one is just too “Talented Mr. Ripley”, which isn’t really fair, because that was Matt Damon. Anyhoo, CLIVE CLIVE CLIVE. That sexy sonuvabitch.

  • crh

    Mr. Owen, fo shore.

  • Jude Law! 

  • I’m normally a Clive Owen woman, but Jude Law looks like he is going to go ravish that woman. so Jude Law it is!

  • Clive! Clive! Clive!

  • Larkin21

    Jude Law. In fact, you posted the pictures in the same order I’d rank them.

  • I don’t usually find him all that attractive, but Clive Owen, definitely. Jude Law somehow reminds me of the cover photo on any season of Dexter. (And Justin Timberlake is just… no. Man+suit+car+fist forward as if he’s about to punch something does not take away from whatever it is about him that makes me think he belongs on the cover of Lisa Simpson’s Non-Threatening Boys magazine.)

  • altalinda

    Clive Owen FTW.

  • clive clive clive clive clive.  clearly.

  • oatmealpie


  • Synnamin

    They’re all smokin’, but gotta go with Jude. Mmmmmm

  • Clive, baby, Clive.

  • Clive! Jude is trying too hard and Justin looks like he has to go. now.

  • Clive, no contest. #unapologeticfanpoodle

  • JT is so very hot.

    There, I said it.

  • Jude wins the Blue Steel Medal.  But Clive does it for me every time, no matter what.  

  • Bill Curtis

    No contest.  Clive is a man.  The others will always be boys.

  • NurseEllen

    Jude gets my vote.  In fact, he gets all my votes.  If I bribe you, can I buy more votes for him?  Name your price.   That Timberlake is a baby pretender.  Clive is OK but no match for my man Jude.

  • DCSheehan

    Clive Owen. His sexy is effortless. Look at him, he’s not even trying and I want to jump him!

  • BrightsideSusan

    Clive all the way.

  • FashionShowAtLunch

    Jude is bringing the pretty for sure, but you scroll down a bit, and BAM. Clive is bringing the sex.  

    So yeah, Clive all the way.

  • Jude law!

  • lifetime_student

    No contest-Clive Owen!

  • lifetime_student

    No contest-Clive Owen!

  • MzzPants

    Jude Law.

  • Jude Law! He’s giving great face 🙂

  • Clive!
    Although I do appreciate Jude’s blue eyes, Clive is smokin’ WITHOUT the benefit of a color picture.

  • portlandmermaid

    Jude has that “You’re next,” look in his eyes, Clive is “You, now,” and Justin looks like he’s wondering if he should stop now for a burger or wait until the next town. 

  • Play smells like shit. Generic in every way. Jude FTW. 

  • Jude Law, for sure. Clive is giving a strong second, but JT looks a little weepy. No me gusta.

  • golspie

    Do these ads actually work? As a man who doesn’t wear cologne, I’m left cold. 

  • Clive Owen by a mile. Macho isn’t about pretty, it’s about intense and manly. Or as they say “un hombre macho necessita a ser fuerte y feo.” (Forgive me native speakers – my Spanish is really rusty.)

  • Clive Owen is giving off a strong whiff of bitchface (can you call it that if it’s a dude?), which is exactly how all cologne should be advertised.

  • Clive cleaves my heart in twain!  Yummy in the 1st degree!

  • Meklar

    OMG.  Clive Owen…come on down!

  • Clive Clive Clive!!!

  • Clive

  • lesmaha


  • Clive.  Jude is a close second though.

  • Clive for the win!!! I was thinkinhg about Jude but he looks as if he wanted to say “hey I like you, I will sex you up as soon as I do the girl on the background”. Clive is saying more…

  • Numero Uno!

  • demidaemon

    I say Justin–he grabbed me right away, unlike the other two.

  • Why is this even a face-off? Clearly it’s Clive! Such a sexy man 😀

    • Also I approve more posts objectifying and judging genetically superior males who are heavily photoshopped to get us to reach into our wallets 

  • Jude Law does not usually put a run in my stockings, but damn, he wins today… Perhaps because he is channeling Ewan MacG, my pretend boyfriend.

  • Naomi Calmatuianu

    Clive all the way all the time, JT looks like a little boy in comparison. 

  • Jude Law all the way

  • lrhoff

    Clive has it, hands down!

  • Nonnah

    Win = Owen!!
    Place = Law!
    Show = Timberlake

  • Clive!

  • JordanWho


  •  Clive.  No Contest.

  • jilly_d

    JUDE JUDE JUDE.  In real life, I’m a Clive girl, but Jude is SERVING IT

  • Jude Law, for sure. Although Clive is sexier.

  • LJCdoc

    I generally prefer Clive, but Jude is smokin it here, so Jude.

  • Jude Law fucking wishes he was Clive Owen!

  • allj

    Jude Law. And I hate Jude Law.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    1. Clive Owen
    2. Jude Law
    99. Justin Timberlake

  • Gorengirl

    Clive Owen, no doubt about it.

  • kingderella

    law, no question.
    owens not my cup of tea. timberlake can be cute or even sexy… but no, not on this particular picture.

  • Alice Wilder

    Jude, obviously 

  • Clive.  Hands down.

  • Hey Jude!

    • I’d like to work him over a time or two! But Clive for the win!

  • Carla Williams

    Clive. Hands down.

  • Jangle57

    It’s Jude, no Clive, no Jude, no Clive..  Justin? hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha – Jude, Clive, Jude, Clive – by a hair, Clive!

  • Clive all the way

  • ChelseaNH

    Clive Owen, definitely.

  • Susan Crawford

    Givin’ it up for CLIVE, kittens! That’s a hunka, hunka man.

  • Shannon Onstot

    what is happening with their hands in these ads?? Jude’s is growing out of his chin, Clive’s is wayyy too dainty and Justin’s is bigger than his head. That being said, Clive. Always Clive.

  • ccm800

    Jude by a MILE! 

  • PRFan

    Clive, Clive, Clive – the other two look silly.

  • I’d say Clive Owen or Jude Law. Jude Law: “I’m about to have sex with that lady.”
    Clive Owen: “I’m about to have sex with you.”
    Justin Timberlake: “Geez, there aren’t any good radio stations around here.”

    • Linderella

      Actually, I think Jude is saying, “I was going to have sex with that lady…and then I saw you.”

  • Ruth Preston

    Not a fair contest; poor delicious Clive is in b/w, whereas Jude and Opie are in wonderfully saturated, art-directed color. 

  • poketom

    ok… regardless of the mens. The Dior advertisement is right up my alley.
    The JT one is up the alley for douches. 

  • Presumptuous Insect

    Clive owen, without question.

  • JUDE.

  • jtabz

    Clive, Clive, Clive.
    If I type it three times, does my vote count three times, too?

  • TLo, this should become a regular feature in addition to In or Out.

  • Jude Law baby!

  • raininmai

    Clive and Jude both ooze macho out of their pores.  And they’re both so pretty.  I keep looking at them over and over again, trying to decide…

  • Clive without a doubt…. followed by Justin. Jude Law just always seems so I don’t know smarmy? Slimy? He’s good looking and all, but I feel greasy looking at him.

  • Linderella

    Jude Law is the most beautiful man on the planet, so really, does this question even need asked?
    (Did you know I met him in London and screamed like a teenage girl?  Yes?  Ah, I see you’ve been following my responses!)
    But seriously, he’s so beautiful it’s insane; it goes beyond sexual straight to nirvana. 

  • prettybigkitty

    Clive, of course.   

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    Decisions, decisions….can’t I just test-drive all three of these lookers first?

    •  [cough] Best answer yet. I think we should all have a go. Where’s my cloning apparatus…?

  • bellafigura1

    Clive.  CLIVE.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I’ve loved (or lusted after) Clive ever since I saw him in Gosford Park. Oh be still my beating heart!

  • clive obviously

  • quiltrx

    OMG Clive Owen!  I practically worship him anyway, but DAMN…that little smile is tearing me up inside!  He is giving off the vibe…”ladies, you KNOW you want your man to smell like me.”

  • JenXer

    The EYES have it – Jude Law FTW!

  • Louise Bryan

    Clive, hands down!

  • Kelly Kerwin

    Clive. With a bullet.

  • Cynica

    Clive. Easily.

  • sxtmeng

    Jude Law, no question. The man is Blue Steeling up a storm. Clive, unfortunately, looks a bit awkward (seriously whats with the pinky?) and Justin is seriously a baby trying too hard to look intense.

  • kagrrakid

    Definitely Jude Law

  • It was a tough decision, but I think this round goes to Jude

  • Clive Owen OMG.

    Looks like they photoshopped hair onto Jude Law

  • Jude!

  • Jude, hands down. (not that I object to Clive in the least, but Jude’s giving better face. JT? Oh please. no.)

  • snarkykitten

    Clive. hands down

  • SatelliteAlice

    Jude FREAKIN Law bitches! 

  • Samantha Irene

    Jude, but only because he looks like he would do something really fun and naughty with you.

  • Peeve

    Clive, by far. The other 2 are man-boys. Kind of like Don vs. Pete on Mad Men…

  • boweryboy

    Clive for the win.

    The other two are babies playing in their dad’s shaving kits.

    Now if the question was, “Who would give you a downright good shagging based on their ad” I would have to say Jude.

  • understateddiva

    Jude.  Sexy eyebrows.

  • Hey Jude! Definitely Jude.  Distant second is Clive.  Justin’s is not a very good photograph of him.

  • annamiklo


  • crackineggs

    I was going to say Jude nailed it, but then I scrolled down to Clive looking like he wants to nail me.  Clive wins.  I don’t see that look often enough (insert punctuation sad face).

    My, Justin does have giant man hands, doesn’t he?

  • gabbilevy

    Ooooh Owen. I was going to say Jude, but his fist is distracting me from his eyes, which is saying something.

  • faul_ani

    Clive! No doubt about it…

  • plinkiedoodle

    Rule of Law!  

  • Jude Law! He looks like he’s about to do something! The other two doesn’t have any kind of… ‘story’. But Richard’s definitely a close second.

  • I’ll take one of each, please. They all appeal to different aspects of my personality. Jude is the wanna hang out with the playboy jetsetter. Clive is the serious older man. Justin is the young wild thing. 

  • JimiG

    Clive Owen! It’s not even close.

  • Cive Warren — er, Owen, definitely. He definitely has the best voice of the three.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    Jude Law es mas macho.  I had to laugh because in grad school we would all go to the desert and drink and play ¿Quién es más macho?  This would involve taking two seemingly random things and saying the phrase “Q.E.M.M?”  For example:  “¿Quién es más macho?  Queen Victoria or Godzilla?  Si Si, Queen Victoria es mas macho!”  And so forth.  I think TLo needs a new category: ¿Quién es más macho?   We all want to play!

  • Judith Mignault

    Jude Law! Jude Law! Jude Law!

  • Oh, Jude Law. Most definitely.

  • crash1212

    Seriously? Clive…hands down.

  • rawrgrowlrawr

    Jude’s picture reminds me of The Talented Mr. Ripley.


  • a_liking

    Jude Law, definitely. Clive and JT are cute but Jude’s the only one who seems to match the cologne / ad 🙂

  • Lilyana_F

    Hahah, one of these things is not like the others… Justin, sit down, boy 🙂

  • minnye

    Clive. And now I’m hearing Laurie Anderson in my head, which is fun.

  • Michael Telles

     That Givenchy bottle looks like a really fancy bottle of deodorant.

  • samitee

    Hahahaha. I’m in love with this post.


  • Jude, though my loins ache for Justin. 

  • Clive Owen, but I’m a sucker for the black and white photo.

  • Jude, I don’t like Clive expression at all. Justin fails at appearing “macho”.

  • Oh come on now. Clive.

  • Peri7473

    Clive. Clive. Clive.

  • Jude Law.  Easy.

  • Hilary Sain

    Hey Jude!

  • Nicole Smith

    Clive Owen for sure! Justin looks awkward and trying too hard, and Jude only looks manly because there’s a half-naked woman in the background, he’s not really the macho type. But Clive on the other hand, looks confidant and sexy as all get out. 

  • Eff me! Clive Owen ALL the way!

  • Sunshine16


  • Is this even a contest when Clive, dear Clive, is in the running?

  • Is this even a contest when Clive, dear Clive, is in the running?

  • up with pod people

    Gotta give it to Jude, and I’m not even a fangirl.

  • Oh. Clive. Yes.

  • KathKo

    Off course it’s the beautifull and delicious and we-will-forget-you-have-no-taste-in-women Jude !
    That chin ! Those cheekbones ! Those eyes !

  • sarah harris

    Jude Law.

  • Rachel Auerbach

    Jude Law, no doubt

  • librarygrrl64

    Oh, c’mon, with Clive in the mix is there any other choice? 😉

  • lilazander

    Clive Owen rules.

  • Who can choose between JUDE and CLIVE?!?!?!? They’re both mahvelous!
    (Justin should have been in “Battle of the Justins” with Justin Beiber or something, shame on you for pitting him against guys who outrank him by a country mile!)

  • OneTwoThreeFashion

    justin does not belong here… too boyish

  • Jude Law, hands down!

  • Liz


  • LambeeBaby

    Clive, Clive, Clive…why bother featuring anyone else?

  • Clive.
