    Italian men who look like these actors or models are considered highly attractive all around the globe.
    I think, that there are basically no cultures or people who would find these men not handsome. So, beauty is not always in the eyes of the beholder. In fact, there is a universal beauty standard that is deeply rooted in humans. You should open a thread where people can vote for the most attractive Italian actor/model with these guys.

    You prefer only the darkest of the beautiful Italian men I have posted? Don't like the ones on the previous post?

    No, I don't think I'll make a contest of it. If people wish to comment on a particular one it's their choice, although as you say I don't think there's one of them who wouldn't be considered universally handsome, and that includes the French entries, and, for that matter, the beautiful men of Hollywood's Golden Age, who were Irish, English, Welsh, and German mixes of various kinds.

    As for the Italian ones, we're lucky, and unlucky, in the beauty of our men.

    If I were going just by still photos I wouldn't include her: Matilda DeAngelis of Bologna.

    Mostly it's her nose, which she can't help, and her eyebrows, which she can, and that she looks too stick like. However, I saw her in the series The Undoing, with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant. She was extraordinarily gorgeous, and since she was naked a good amount of time, that included her figure. I don't know what it was; did she gain weight, was it because they made her darker skinned in order to play a Latina, made her hair wilder, shadow her face to make her nose look different? I don't know, but she was breathtaking; it was completely understandable that she would make men, and women, mad. The other wonderful thing is that even at such a young age she was able to create a character whom you would want to hate vulnerable, and so irresistible that you are "on her side" throughout the film no matter her behavior.





    The film:

    "The socially constructed notion that physical attractiveness is one of women's most important assets, and something all women should strive to achieve and maintain," says the feminine beauty ideal. From culture to culture, the feminine beauty ideal, which includes female body shape, varies.

    In most of her photos she looks like a Hedy Lamar type to me, but more natural and softer, somehow.

    The addition of just a bit of Central Asian or "Turkic" to an Anatolian Neolithic/Iran farmer mix can create really beautiful people:

    Handsome until he dies, I think, especially if the trial goes well for him and he's able to heal and put all that evil witch has done to him in the past.

    Just incredibly gorgeous when young:


    I knew he was haunted, but only now do I know why; poor, poor boy.





    Midlife:


    Close to 50:


    Now, close to 60, overweight, almost destroyed, but the features are still there; he can reclaim himself.

    Well, I'm with you as to Claire Forlani. I really like her face, her smile, how she speaks through her eyes, the sweetness and yet intelligence she can project, her soft voice.

    She always strikes me as much more "European" than most American actresses.

    She was raised in England by an Italian father and an English mother. Both my son and I fell in love with her in Meet Joe Black. I think you nailed her characteristics but I prefer not to analyze her .

    Well, there you have it, then. :) Can't imagine why I never looked her up. I just assumed she was American.

    I'm also sort of in love with her, although in a different way. I want to be best friends with her; I want my son to bring her home and tell me he want's to marry her. Heck, if I were a man I'd want to marry her myself! :)

    She and her parents moved to San Fransisco in 1993 to avail her of better acting opportunities.

    She might be a a bit old for your son unless he likes older married women (she is 49 yo). She's married to Scottish actor Dougray Scott and she has an 8 yo son. Sorry Angela !

    Oh, dear, I wish I hadn't looked her up now. She was always thin, but now she's emaciated, almost skeletal; it makes her look a decade older than her actual age. Poor woman; whatever is causing it can't be good.

    As for my son, he does tend to have girlfriends older than he is, although NOT married. I think they're drawn to his sweetness and kindness in addition to his good looks. Of course, this is his mother talking. :) It's fine with me. All I want is for my children to be really loved by a good person.

    This is going to be a happy year for us. Both of my kids are getting married this year. My son at the end of May and the other in the beginning of September. Both of them have chosen well. We really like our future son daughter in law and son in law.

    Not everybody ages as well as Christie Brinkley .

    That's probably not Olivia's best picture. I think in this pic she had augmentation in the cheekbones area.

    They're both very beautiful and in a similar way: Mediterranean looking, with delicate, feminine faces, and very small boned and lean yet feminine bodies as well.

    Monica Bellucci wins it for me, however, as between the two of them. There are lots of beautiful women in the film industry but I don't think there are a lot who are "more" beautiful.

    I think she also has the kind of look that can appeal to women as well as men.

    I don't think she's a fabulous actress, but I think she did a good job in Malena, and despite having aged, she was still so very beautiful and so fragile and vulnerable. Such a sad movie.

    Monica Bellucci hands down today and over the last 20 years.

    For 60's classic era, Claudia Cardinale was always my favorite. My Grandfather (and Grandmother, paternal) and Father introduced me to Westerns very early. As I young kid in early 70's, when I first watched Leone's Once Upon a Time in the West, I was totally infatuated with Claudia Cardinale. The only other 70's star for me that totally captured my imagination was Raquel Welch, who had despite her last name a Southern European vibe (Father, Bolivian of Spanish descent) more so than her Mothers English ancestry

    Not saying "Ideal" per se... Since I do think western beauty standards push women to go a bit on the underweight side, especially models. But that is my irrelevant personal opinion.
    Not my type, but I do like it when a woman has that type or similar philtrum. I wonder what my instinct is picking up in that particular trait.

    Lino Guanciale...same type as my husband, which is probably why I'm so attracted to his look; broad planed face much like Clark Gable had, large eyes, strong brow bones and brows, full lips, thick, dark head of hair, strong nose. The eyes are different; my husband's are topaz colored with long, thick lashes.

    He can look goofy in some of his pictures. The still image doesn't always do him justice, unlike my dratted husband, who's never taken a bad picture. :)

    These two are good.






    The moving image does him more justice, and also captures his charm.

    Just watched the only film, I think, which Marlon Brando ever directed. I liked it a lot; don't know why it's not more well known.

    He's absolutely gorgeous in it; what a face.



    He has a very odd profile, however; strange head shape, very beaky nose almost like a parrot's.
