CoverBoy Face-Off: Tatum vs. Hemsworth vs. Affleck

Posted on November 14, 2012

Yes, darlings! It’s time once again to pit the men against each other, in a sweaty, no-holds-barred, shirtless wrestling match!

Oh, wait. No. That’s just one of our fantasies getting the better of us. Instead, it’s time to ask the age-old question:

 

¿Quién es más macho?

 

Is it:

Channing Tatum?

Channing Tatum covers the December 2012 Issue of GQ Magazine

or

Chris Hemsworth?

or

Ben Affleck?

We can’t ever shake the persistent (if perhaps unfair) feeling that Hemsworth is a Douchus Magnificus, so he’s out. Affleck is aging nicely – in fact, we think he’s better-looking now than he was ten years ago – but this isn’t a very flattering picture of him. He looks exhausted and annoyed. Tatum has that devil-may-care glint in his eyes, so we’re going to have to go with him. As if that’s some kind of shocking development.

What say the Bitter Kittens?

      It’s Hemsworth for me all the way.  Although Affleck is looking pretty good too!

      • blogless

        Hemsworth for me too. That’s one of the most flattering shots I’ve ever seen of him. Actually made me swoon a teeny bit.

      • Violina23

        I’m with you on Hemsworth. I always got the douchy vibe from Affleck, personally, so I’m going with pure attractiveness on this one.

      • frederieke

        One Hemsworth please. He never seemed really douchey to me though. Afleck comes across as the most douchey imo.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

      Is that a photoshop fail or is Ben’s head really that big compared to his body? If it weren’t for that, I’d vote Ben. I hate to say it but it might be Charming Potato. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

        Definite photoshop fail. Where’s his neck?!
         

      • DeborahJozayt

        See, I was looking at Tatum’s head and was thinking the same way. His head to body ratio makes the GQ cover look like a Mad Magazine cover.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

           Yeah both of them are bad. I think Affleck’s is worse. I say Hemsworth wins for lack of shitty photoshop.

          • DeborahJozayt

            I think the stubble saves him. Not sure how you can photoshop stubble.

      • sarahmichelef

        Affleck has a freakishly large head – just do a google image search for him and you’ll see what I mean.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1183772509 Jen Hughes

           Yeah but I don’t think it looks that bad in other pictures.

      • quiltrx

        Ben has always had a giant potato head.  (seriously, go find a pic of him next to Matt Damon’s tiny head, and gawk.  I’ll wait.)

        But even I think it’s more disproportional than usual!

      • frederieke

        He is leaning forward. It is perspective making the thing closest to the camera looks bigger.

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=755957928 Veronica Russek

          Ever notice how most celebrities, female mostly, look like bobble heads with huge heads abd teeny little bodies in tabloid and magazine photos, especially red carpet?

          I do think that is the case here as well, photo angle makes his head look bigger than it is.

    • Kimmu

      Hemsworth! Having met him in person, he was anything but a douchebag and was absolutely charming and sweet and quite funny and sweet jesus does he give good hugs.

      • Alisa Rivera

        You got to hug him?!?!

        • Kimmu

          Yes, yes I did. It was glorious. 

          • Violina23

            My inner 13 year old just went “Lucccckkkkyyyyyyy!”

            • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1401197785 Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

              My inner 31 one year old saw your “Lucccckkkkyyyyyy!” and raised you a “bitch.” ;)

            • homespunner

               My inner 51 year old saw your “Luccckkkyyyy!” and raised YOU ….wait a minute…too old

            • JosephLamour

              You can never be too old for unbridled fan-girl swooning.

          • quiltrx

            I’m surprised you didn’t die and go straight to Jeebus. :)

            • Kimmu

              I gotta survive to see Thor: the Dark World.  But uhhh every part of him is solid. And he does the whole arms around you crushing your body to his thing. It was very…gratifying.

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

              EVERY part? That was quite a hug! :-)  (I say jealously)

      • gabbilevy

        Trying hard not to hate you. Gahhh *jealousy*

        • Kimmu

          If it makes you feel any better, I made a total ass of myself in the process lol First the forgetting of words, then the comics fangirl brain to mouth filter being completely turned off once I was able to use words again. 

      • http://twitter.com/Kamilaahh Kamil

        Yeah, he’s anything but a douche. Joss pushed him for Thor, getting him a call-back when his original audition hadn’t gone anywhere. They were shooting Cabin in the Woods (and by then, Joss knew he’d be doing Avengers, even if it wasn’t official at that point), and the tiny ginger genius does NOT set himself up to work long-term with pain-in-the-arse actors. 

        So yeah, Chris for me too. 

        *smites typos*

        • LCTerrill

          These stories make me so happy. That man slays me every. damn. time.

      • j_anson

        Yeah, he’s never really struck me as douchey. Kinda frat boy, maybe, but a nice frat boy.

      • TieDye64

        Lucky, lucky you.

    • Ozski

      Channing always appears dumber than a bag of hammers to me. I can’t for the life of me tell you what Hemsworth has ever been in but he does look a bit self-satisfied and Affleck is just so damned talented so..JON HAMM WINS! Um, I mean Ben Affleck. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000357883139 Lynzee Michelle Lamb

        Hemsworth is Thor! He wins above and beyond for me but I’m sure my mother would pick Tatum (taking her to see Magic Mike was a horrible decision)

        • Ozski

           Thor? That’s why I never heard of him. ;o)

          • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

            He was also Thor in The Avengers, which is great fun to watch, even if you’re not really into superhero action flicks. And he was in Snow White and the Huntsman, though I haven’t seen it (nobody I know has).

            • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

              I did. You didn’t miss much. Typical 21st century CGI tries-to-make-up-for-otherwise-lame-movie situation. But Charlize did play a kickass evil witch, so she gets a gold star for that.

            • turtleemily

              He was Papa Kirk in the first 10 minutes of the Star Trek reboot, too.

            • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

              oh god, he was great in that, brief but great. “Your father was a captain of a starship for twelve minutes. He saved 800 lives, including your mother’s and yours.”

        • http://profiles.google.com/adj.blair Adriana Blair

          That scene is Thor where he is shirtless in those low-cut jeans? Yeah, he wins.

          • amywinns

             I just made a whimper noise at my desk. He wins everything.

    • another_laura

      Based solely on these photos, Hemsworth.  

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

         Agreed. Actually, based on any picture I have ever seen of the three of them it’s Hemsworth and I don’t really go for blondes.

        • sweetestsith

           Ditto. ::swoon::

      • MoreShoes

         Yep, Hemsworth.

      • curiouserandcuriousest

         Absolutely. None of them work for me that much in general, but Channing in particular just looks bizarre and Ben Affleck causes in me instant narcolepsy.

      • tereliz

        Yes! It’s a great big Hemsworth love-fest in here. Good thing there’s enough of him to go around. ;)

    • rahrahbowbow

      Does anyone else think that Affleck looks a little…  Clooney-esque…  in that picture?  Maybe just in the eyes…

      • Sara LaBatt

        I saw that too.

        • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

          So did I.  Weird.

      • http://twitter.com/iJenmac Jennifer McClory

         I saw it too.  The bit of gray in the hair helps too.

    • Sobaika

      None of the above. Tatum looks goofy, Helmsworth looks like a cologne ad, and Affleck looks like he will fall asleep at the wheel.

      • DeborahJozayt

        Idris Elba?

        • Sobaika

          Always.

    • jw_ny

      Hemsworth is mas macho as far as these pics are concerned…that pic of Channing makes him look like a bobble head.  I’d normally cast my vote his way tho.  Affleck…ew, always…looks like a bobble head too.

    • susan6

      The God of Thunder all the way.  Tatum’s pose is a little too cutesy, and Ben looks a bit tired.  Although….he is starting to look vaguely Clooney-ish, which is a good thing.

    • MikeW_PHX

      The gay man in me is panting over Mr Hemsworth, (douchebag or not, he can wield Thor’s hammer at me anytime he wants).

      Ben Affleck has always been a sexy man to me.   I’ve never seen the Channing Tatum love. He doesn’t do much for me.   

    • http://profiles.google.com/awilsongirl Amy Wilson

      As I was scrolling down, as soon as I saw the picture of Hemsworth, I made this sound that was probably not very ladylike. Hot damn- he is delicious.

    • ChiliP

      Wow, those aren’t particularly flattering pictures of any of these fine looking men. Tatum’s kind of looking like a wax figure. I guess my vote is going to Affleck, even though (or maybe because?) I’m vaguely seeing George Clooney in that picture.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      No question for me.  Mr Affleck.  I like a man who is aging gracefully.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        And I find his family adorable… which is a very WRONG reason to be attracted to someone. I swear I’m only a home wrecker in my Hollywood fantasy life, but when I learned that he has tea parties with his girls I swooned.

      • Mismarker

        : ) You’ll have to fight me for him! Not only is he handsome, he’s also extremely good at what he does.  Huge turn-on.  Jennifer Garner is one lucky lady.

    • raininmai

      If the question is “macho,” Hemsworth wins. He’s a sight to behold.

    • Michael Owens

      Terrible picture of Ben, but he’s still my choice. And, frankly, the smirk on Tatum’s face looks as off-putting—with added ridiculousness—as Ben’s. Hemsworth? Lightweight.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      I go with the somewhat unflattering photo of Ben. Channing’s smirk annoys me. 

    • http://twitter.com/flolly Holly Flanagan

      I know there’s a rift in Chez TLo regarding Channing Tatum, but I’m glad the team vote went his way.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Cortney-Dean/100002491593625 Cortney Dean

      I’m with you guys 100%. On these covers, Tatum. But Affleck is a great deal more attractive than he’s ever been. And he manages to look good in Argo even with that crazy 70′s hair.

      • mshesterp

         YES.  I can’t think of anyone else who can pull off that shag and beard like he does in Argo.  Delicious.  My love for him since he was the Sexiest Man Alive has been redeemed!  He’s just yum to me.  As is Tatum.  I get too much meathead from Hemsworth, although I think he’s probably got the best photo.  I’m getting a Brad Pitt-y vibe from him.

    • MilaXX

      I get a whiff of the douche from all of them, so based solely on manliness, I pick Hemsworth.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/37TPKASIMXVUPYK5BNQFOL43KU Carina

      Damian Lewis.

    • http://twitter.com/MarfMom Maya

      i agree with everything you said!

    • MilaXX

       I always thought Ben looked like Guy Smiley from Sesame Street, soooooo

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1447060898 Lori Wade Miller

      Why does Channing’s head look way too big for his body?  It looks like one of those giant heads college kids wave around at basketball games. 

      I won’t really be able to tell machoness until these gentlemen take off their shirts.

    • MissKimP

      Does anyone else think Tatum is looking a little too Alfred E. Neuman-esque in this photo?

    • http://twitter.com/hmbscully WendyD

      Hemsworth all the way! He is a god after all.

    • http://profiles.google.com/denise.alden Denise Alden

      Charming Potato looks adorable, but I’m going to have to go with Hemsworth for “mas macho.”  And I barely know who this dude is.

    • http://twitter.com/sjcAustenite Erik Stadnik

      Hensworth is a favorite of and muse to Joss Whedon. That’s the surest way of knowing that a hunky guy in Hollywood is not a douche that I know of. Chris H. all the way.

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

         Muse? Really?

      • http://twitter.com/Kamilaahh Kamil

        Heh. I just said the same thing up-thread, before I saw this. =D Apparently that part of Joss’ personality is pretty well known by now. Seems working for seven years with SMG set that in stone. >.>

      • not_Bridget

        I wouldn’t say “muse”–but Whedon knew he was a star in Cabin In the Woods.  Which was shot long before Thor, even if it was released later.  On the screen, Hemsworth’s humor & charm comes across. 

        The photos of the other two gents look really badly photoshopped.  How about a face-off between Thor & Loki?

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

           LOKI!!!  I have such a huge crush on Tom Hiddleston — Hemsworth seems like a great guy, but not really my type.

    • http://twitter.com/LianaBrooks Liana Brooks

      Thor for me. 

    • TheLaurenJean

      I’m gonna have to go with Affleck on this one! He just looks, manly. Muy Macho.

    • Jessi03

      Hemsworth Hemsworth Hemsworth!  Tatum and Ben both rub me the wrong way.  

      • http://www.flickr.com/photos/21151157@N00/ rawrgrowlrawr

        I wish Ben would rub me the wrong way.

        That didn’t sound so gross when I first thought it. 

        • Jessi03

          Suuuuure it didn’t. ;)

    • StellaZafella

      Affleck for me…I’d marry him if he was gay.
      …but I’d love to have drinks with Hemsworth…he seems to have a wicked sense of humor (and would possibly even find the funny in any reference to douchy-ness).

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

         I can almost guarantee he’d find it hilarious.

    • http://opinionandamovie.blogspot.com/ Deitra S.

      The first two are boys, Affleck is all man.  And I agree 100% that he is significantly better looking now than he was even just a few years ago.  Also, it probably helps tremendously that I really respect the director/writing work he’s been doing lately with Argo & The Town (still desperately need to see Gone Baby Gone).  He gets my vote.

    • http://www.facebook.com/seelebrennt Christina Diaz

      oh god, hemsworth.  he is delicious.  tatum looks super plastic in that picture.  affleck is ok.  handsome, and yes, aging well, but just ok.

    • mellorcr

      Channing looks like he is about to burst out with “riddle me this, riddle me that” and then do a manic jig.  Definitely not Channing, unless the question is changed to “Who would make the best batshit crazy supervillian for the next Batman movie?”

    • http://twitter.com/jennsaysmeow Fifi LaRoux

      Based on these photos I’d have to go with Hemsworth or Affleck. Tatum’s smile is too “frat boy trying to get into my pants” for me, and I’m done with those kinds of boys.

    • http://theargiehome.blogspot.com/ Gus Casals

      Tatum is also serving a kind of timelessness that really becomes him. Imagine the casting possibilities: age inappropriate boyfriend for Sally Draper!

    • belfebe

      Affleck! Affleck!

    • Catiline

      I’m often take it or leave it on him, but Chris Hemsworth is completely doing it for me here. 

    • http://korilian.livejournal.com/ korilian

      Hemsworth all the way! Hot and oddly endearing. 

    • KELLEYKAT

      Ben FTW!  He is looking super sexy!

      What is up with the Channing Tatum photo??  GIANT Head…tiny hands!  Eeek!

    • nancymae

      I vote for Affleck. His photo seems to look the most like he would actually look if you happened to meet him on the way to Starbucks. Tatum’s smirk combined with that odd disproportionate head to hands ratio (damn you photoshop!) look so… offputting.  As for Helmsworth, he looks like he takes himself way too seriously.  It’s GQ dude, not Leonardo da Vinci. 

    • http://twitter.com/PsychicMuppet Bitsey Carver

      Chris Hemsworth!

    • Janet B

      Without looking at the pictures I’d say Ben Affleck, but that photo does nothing for him or me.

    • maggiemaybe

      Affleck for the win!

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Tatum looks like he was poured from plastic (i.e., way overphotoshopped) and Hemsworth has that Douchius Gloriosus factor you spoke of, so by default, I’m going with Affleck. He’s aging fairly nicely.

    • DaringMiss

      Ben Affleck’s cover could be on the front of AARP.

      Just on this set of pics, Hemsworth.  But I will still rather spend a snow-bound weekend in the Adirondacks with Affleck.

    • http://profiles.google.com/hillaryschuster Hillary Schuster

      That’s a horribly unflattering picture of Tatum. He looks like Ben Stiller. Which is fine if you ARE Ben Stiller…I think they are all bad photos of these men.

    • Snailstsichr

      M = Affleck
      F = Hemsworth
      K = Tatum

      • jonnyf8

        Disagree but glad to see that someone knows how to answer the question properly!!

    • BeeBeauNYC

      Affleck’s inviting chest hair makes me lean to pick to him. The photos are all so heavily photoshopped that they all look kind of fake.

    • Judy_J

      Sorry, none of these guys does anything for me. 

    • Sara__B

      On the basis of these three photos and nothing else, Hemsworth for the win and Affleck in second place. Tatum looks like a cute 16-year-old headed to his first formal dance.

    • kolokOlchik

      I am going with Hemsworth over the neckless Tatum and the boring Affleck

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1832126583 Mary Lauer

      That is the first picture of Hemsworth I have EVER liked. And he wins this one!

    • Chartreusite

      Is it me or does Tatum look a little Alec Baldwin in a bad way? I don’t know how to describe it but his face looks way too processed.

      It’s a tie between Hemsworth and Affleck for me. The former is serving suave-brooding-suit realness and the other is just a big spoonful of family-man-getting-ready-to-become-a-silver-fox realness. Gun to my head, Hemsworth because he’s just a little more age-appropriate for me.

    • http://twitter.com/ladonnazc LaDonna Carpenter

      I vote for Hemsworth based on these 3 covers.

      Normally, I would be a Channing Tatum girl, but on this cover, he bears a striking resemblance to Alfred E. Newman.  Is this a GQ cover or a MAD Magazine cover????

    • Jennifer Coleman

      Affleck for the meh…er, win. He is aging nicely, but doesn’t need that drawn-in hair glossiness, which looks like gray hair.
      Hemsworth with that dang ubiquitous stray hair over his ear bugs me to no end.
      Uber-photoshopped Tatum is seems to be suffering from no-neck-itus and it is troubling me.

    • http://www.djplaw.com/ Tadiana

      Channing’s giving a great come-hither look, but Hemsworth is starring in my imaginary bodice-ripper.  Hemsworth FTW.

    • Sarah Thomas

      I would slide your Douche Diagnosis over to Tatum and give it to Hemsworth. Douche is in the eye of the beholder.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      I don’t like any of these guys.  Can you come up with three different choices, please?

    • NCDFan

      Hmm, why do I have to choose?

    • Judy_S

      I guess I like my men exhausted and annoyed. Affleck.

    • alyce1213

      Channing Tatum just does not do it for me, no way, no how.  I never liked big bulgy muscles and necks.  Also, he looks like a complete dork ass in this cover shot. People’s choice sucks.

      Chris Hemsworth is also muscley, but taller, not quite as bulgy as Tatum. Plus, he has a gorgeous, chiseled face, beautiful eyes and great hair.

      Ben Affleck looks really good here, it’s a good, honest, grown-up face.

      I’m going with Hemsworth.

    • UglyTalents

      Channing Tatum looks like Alfred E. Neuman in that picture. I’m sorry but he does. Agree with your assessment of Hemsworth, though, and OMG Ben Affleck is looking fuh-hinnnnnnnne these days. Age suits him. Loved him in Argo; he should consider a beard all the time. 

    • Vanessa Gorga

      Chrisss!!

    • Hannah Katz

      I like Affleck, especially after seeing Argo!
      … Why is Rihanna counted under Men of the Year? Have I been missing something?

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/KBNJ6GJTXYEE6BON3WGK6KEGT4 Elizabeth

        Yeah … weird huh? GQ put out four covers, these guys and RiRi. Of course, they all got to keep their clothes on and she was naked with a leather jacket thrown over her shoulders.

        But they really need to fire their graphics person, because all of these shots look badly photoshopped. Everybody’s proportions were way off — hands the wrong size, shrunken heads, etc.

        I’m going for Hemsworth for the win simply because he looks kinda normal. And I was shocked to have enjoyed Thor and the Avengers.

    • A B

      It looks like Channing Tatum’s head has dislodged from his body like that creature from The Abyss–but I assume that’s just bad photoshop.  I don’t really like any of them but I guess I’d go with Hemsworth.

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      Norman Reedus.  :)

    • http://4ofwands.wordpress.com/ Aj/Melia

      Hemsworth or Affleck.  Most definately.  That picture of Tatum looks odd…his head looks huge compared to the rest of him.  Big head, big hands, little body…weird.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1208138556 Sara Munoz Munoz

      None of these guys do it for me, but Channing Tatum actually looks kind of cute here.

      However, Ben Affleck gets serious points for the gray hair and casual clothes.

      AFFLECK all the way.

    • John Cash

      Affleck. Argo rocked.

    • http://twitter.com/malaulau Madeleine La

      Hemsworth, hands down. I’ve always found Tatum’s face downright ugly, tbh – and Affleck looks pretty nice but ‘pretty nice’ is not good enough for a GQ cover, lbr.

    • PastryGoddess

      Why is Tatum’s head so BIG

      ….on the cover of the magazine

    • Marian Humin

      It’s Hemsworth for me. I get a little twinge from Affleck but there’s something very “Slingblade” about him.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Emily-Jordhamo/1004276640 Emily Jordhamo

      I guess I’d have to choose Channing, but my real question is WHERE IS TOM HARDY?

    • snarkykitten

      Thor looks like Loki’s holding all the poptarts hostage

    • Imasewsure

      I actually have to go Affleck, then Hemsworth, then Tatum who I kind of can’t stand (except in 21 Jump Street which was a lot of fun)

    • Allison Harris

      Tatum, all  day long. He may smirk at me all he wants.

    • cleverlady

      CT looks a little like the Mad Magazine character… so since that ages me, I’ll confess that although even Ben is way too young for me, I’m a huge Chris Hem’y fan.  And despite my advanced age I have come to thoroughly enjoy Thor, The Avengers and even Snow White and the Hems… I mean Huntsman!  You’re never too old to appreciate attractive, talented young men.

      Ben A all the way! Hemsworth is unsuccessfully trying to channel his inner Brad Pitt and Tantum’s photo has a Mad Magazine vibe…mirite?

      Hemsworth.

    • PrunellaV

      Hemsworth by a mile. The ‘Shopping is ludicrous on the other guys. Tatum’s head and body don’t match, and Affleck looks like he’s wearing makeup.

    • newtonGOTbeaned

      They’re all hot. Ben is looking surprisingly fine.

      Hemsworth! Affleck is a douchecanoe and Channing Tatum always comes across as dumber than a box of rocks.

        Too funny and true – Chris wins it for me too!

    • Jenna621

      I just love that shot of Channing Tatum so much.  Ben Affleck is definitely hotter than ever but I’m giving it to Tatum.  He is the Sexiest Man of the Year, after all. ;-)

    • Inspector_Gidget

      They’re in the right order for me, 1 2 3… though I wouldn’t say any of them are faves. Ben Affleck always trips my barf-meter for some reason. Too slick?  Too smug?  Not really sure.  You can have him, though.

    • jmorino08

      Tatum!

    • oohsparkley!

      I appreciate all 3 fine men.  I like the Chris H. picture the best. I think the smirk on Tatum’s pic reminds me of Bond, James Bond. I love Ben, getting better with age. I think they are all muy macho!

      Tatum’s pic is far and away the best.  You guys are spot on about Affleck.  Somehow I have missed why Hemsworth is douchey???

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Erin-Hines/620149309 Erin Hines

      Hemsworth. To paraphrase Steel Magnolias: Tatum always looks like he
       was carved out of cream cheese. 

    • trisker

      Hemsworth hands down is the handsomest and hottest in these pix.  Affleck next.  I think Tatum is lame.

    • Kristy Evans

      Oh Charming Potato, you win. Chris Hemsworth just doesn’t do it for me. I will say that in interviews, he seems rather charming and not douchey, though. Ben Affleck is divine but that picture is terribly unflattering. He looks like he has a migraine.

    • J. Preposterice

      I can’t help it.  Kevin Smith basically ruined Ben Affleck for me with that “a 10-82 is disappearing a dead hooker from Ben Affleck’s trailer” bit. Which was both hilarious in its context, but has managed to give me the skin crawls about Affleck since. 

    • carpediva

      Kiss: Hemsworth (yum!)
      Kill: Tatum (yuck!)
      Marry: Affleck (yay!)

    • http://profiles.google.com/h.e.waddell Heather Waddell

      Opposite for me. Hemsworth is the clear winner, with Affleck coming in a close second for embracing that adorable gray streak (please tell me it’s real!). Tatum looks like he is actively farting in that picture and his head is out of proportion with his body and his hands. Bobbleheads are not sexy.

    • http://profiles.google.com/misslauraschultz Laura Schultz

      Gonna have to go with Hemsworth. 

    • jjfg

      Judging solely on these pictures – Hemsworth, no contest.  Affleck doesn’t do it for me here and Tatum looks too distractingly like Christian Slater.

    • Jangle57

      It would have to be Affleck for me though Hemsworth is a very close second.  I’m so glad Ben’s redeemed himself as an actor as well as proving to be an excellent director; Argo was terrific!  However,  I’m afraid I’m in the “I don’t get the appeal of Channing Tatum” category, at least not looks-wise. 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

      Hemsworth. ALWAYS. And he seems so sweet in interviews, so I curse your douche description.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=720742723 Sarah Winningham

      Tatum and Affleck both have their heads set at very odd angles. Hemsworth is the clear winner.

      Channing looks like a lot of fun, I’d have to go with him 

    • Anathema_Device

      They are all handsome, but Tatum is showing the most spark & personality here, so he gets my vote.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Hemsworth is giving major major FACE. He should’ve won solely for that. I’m disappointed in you, overlords.

    • editrixie

      That cover of Channing Tatum is FREAKING me OUT. I know it’s the angle of the photog and the way he’s ducking his head for the tie cinch, but…it gives me the creeps.

    • littlemissstrange

      None of the above.

      I guess if I had to pick it’d be Hemsworth, he repulses me the least.

      As to your question: ZACHARY QUINTO ES EL MAS MACHO. Yes I know he’s gay but he could put these boys to shame with his smoulder and his voice of pure sex.

      Hemsworth. He looks dreamy here. Even with the long hair. Plus his Thor cracks me up. I have never been and don’t expect to ever be attracted to Channing and his HUGE neck. Ben is ok, but that bit of grey in his hair looks like spray paint, like they are TRYING to make him seem older and more distinguished.

    • kimmeister

      I’m going to go with Affleck just because he’s dressed like he could lift heavy things for me.

    • lalahartma

      Tatum for sure.

      I would watch the hell out of a sweaty, no-holds-barred, shirtless wrestling match between these three.

      Channing wins, though, because of the aforementioned glint in his eye.

    • guest2visits

      Finally; some serious business to attend to today.  Hemsworth you are some kind of gorgeous. Much too young;
      but I’m only looking!  Affleck has also been looking especially ‘macho’ lately – although I agree this isn’t the best pic for him.
      I won’t leave Tatum out so… (filling in all the ovals on my test paper).

    • zuzu

      Hemsworth, on these pictures.

      On a side note, I saw Argo recently, and I gotta say, Affleck ought to do the shaggy hair and beard combo again. He really pulled it off.  Some of the other actors did not fare so well with their period-and-character-appropriate facial hair.

    • TieDye64

      Hemsworth. I cannot abide the Afleck and while Mr. Tatum looks good he just doesn’t do it for me. Mostly.

    • http://twitter.com/graceishuman Grace

      Hemsworth has a bad case of the doucheface, but is completely charming and down-to-earth in interviews. He comes across as very sweet and boyish in a not-annoying way.

      I think I like the Hemsworth pic. It looks i don’t know, manly.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      They’re kinda all “meh.” Channing looks kinda adorable, and Ben IS aging well, so I suppose it’s a tie, by default (Hemsworth irritates me, so he’s out).

    • TSkot

      Wouldn’t kick any of ‘em outta bed, but Hemsworth is a step above.

      I find Hemsworth adorable if that word could be used about 7 feet tall gorgeous Aussie :) I like Tatum alright but nowhere near Thor Almighty :) Affleck just doesn’t work for me.

    • shanna bowie

      Hemsworth is actually super sweet. Look at any video of him, he’s just a sweet guy. I think he gets a bad wrap cause he has that hunky, jock look.

    • http://www.hazelnutgirl.blogspot.com/ Hazelnuts

      I was just thinking the same thing about Affleck, he is definitely more interesting-looking now than he used to be – less bland. Hemsworth might be douchy but he’s just so nice to look at and listen to, I don’t really care! Tatum is just blah, cookie-cutter generic Hollywood good-looking – let’s check back in 10 years. And that is one weird photo, he doesn’t look like he’s got a neck and his head just looks hugely out of proportion to his body, like some sort of garden gnome!

    • unbornfawn

      Tatum looks too cutesy here to win the macho title.  Affleck looks pretty good, but looses points for a rather unflattering picture. I”ve got to give Hemsworth the win for most macho, the hint of unkempt and serious look in his eyes wins it. If we were going for best face I’d give it to Tatum because he looks happy and cute as hell.

    • lesmaha

      I like the Affleck look–dissipated–which I find somewhat attractive–

    • quiltrx

      Hemsworth by a mile.  This is really a great picture of him.

      I hate Ben Affleck and his stupid potato head.  And Tatum does absolutely nothing for me…Sexiest Man Alive, pah.

    • Daenyx

      Tatum is giving me the creeps.  Affleck just looks okay, and that’s one of the best pictures of Hemsworth I’ve seen.  He’s almost attractive, and I’ve never gotten the douche vibe from him.  (Almost, because I objectively recognize that he’s attractive, but I like my men pretty, and he is hunky, not pretty.)

    • SophieCollier

      Hemsworth, of course.  It looks like they composited Channing’s face from two or three different shots.  It’s weird and melty.  And enormous.  

    • MzzPants

       Gonna’ have to go with Tatum on this round.  Hemsworth looks vacant between the ears and Affleck irrationally makes me want to punch babies, no matter how good he looks.

    • Louise Bryan

      Hemsworth.  But if Tatum had been displayed in a similar manner to Rihanna on the alternate GQ cover, that would have been lots of fun.

    • barbarienne

      My reaction is completely the opposite of you guys. Going strictly by these photos alone, I say:

      1. Channing looks like the douchiest douche in Doucheville. I wanna smack that “Hey baybee, wanna meet a movie star?” smirk off his face with a nightstick.

      2. Hemsworth looks serious and in control of his masculinity, like he knows he doesn’t need to work it. The worst I can say about his look here is that this picture wouldn’t look even a tiny bit out of place on a romance novel cover. He looks beautiful and masculine at the same time.

      3. Affleck looks a lot better than I recall him looking, but the expression is straight out of the George Clooney School of Headshots, first lesson, “stare directly into the camera and give a small smile like you’re thinking of a beautiful sunset.”

      So I’m giving it to Hemsworth, here.

    • http://twitter.com/xx_NYCgirl NYCgirl

      Channing Tatum by far, but have to agree on Affleck, he is aging well

    • briecee

      1. I think you may be confusing “devil-may-care” with “teenage boy made it to second base”.  Douchetastic.

      2. I don’t get this guy at all.  I saw Thor and I was all like “I love this character” but out of character, I just want to wash his hair and then not look at him any more.

      3. Clearly más macho.  In a “I don’t have to kill and grill to be macho, but I could if I wanted to, and then I’d do the dishes just to prove my manliness defies your simplistic gender roles” kind of way.

      Tatum needs to put a clause about controlling his image. He is just too big of a star to allow a hack to photoshop him in this way. he looks like a thanksgiving day parade balloon.

    • stubbornthoughts

      Oh my, this is a delicious three-way face-off, isn’t it? All of them look incredibly handsome (especially Affleck, I haven’t seen him look this good!). But I’ve got to go with Hemsworth. That man is just…I need to stop.

      I will also add my two cents that I’ve never gotten a douchebag vibe from Hemsworth. I’ve actually never gotten a DB vibe from any of these three, so good job fellas.

    • HobbitGirl

      I think Tatum looks like a total douche in that pic…it’s one of the worst I’ve seen of him. I’m slowly falling in love with Hemsworth, and that shot of Affleck is gorgeous.

    • librarygrrl64

      The glimpse of chest hair and what looks like a little bit of silver in the hair on Ben are doing it for me. Affleck es mas macho.

    • formerlyAnon

      None of these guys ring my bell, but Hemsworth at least sets up a little sympathetic vibration.

      Tatum doesn’t look like himself to me. More like Dean Martin. That pose brings up some album cover I’ve seen, and the twinkle’s there.

      Affleck is turning into George Clooney (which is not a bad thing).  Tatum is adorable, which is lovely but not exactly macho.  Hemsworth has the raw material, but he’s not project much.  I’ll have to study them a little more…
