Not " classically" good looking, but attractive nevertheless.

Was watching Harry Potter last night with the weans, and it reinforced my opinion that Alan Rickman is a very attractive man. This also applies to Gordon Ramsay ( in my opinion) . For women, I think Zoe Wannamaker is an attractive woman.

. Who are your " mibbe not classic, but they ring my bell" people?

With the what???! confused

Can't stand that Wannamaker woman!

Always Alan Rickman for me - I even go on utube to hear him read poetry - sad isn't it blush

My DH thinks Zoe Wanamaker is gorgeous confused Gordon Ramsey? Oh no not for me. I agree re Alan Rickman. There are probably others who don't instantly spring to mind.

Mark Rylance.
Amy Poehler.

Alan Rickman? Yuk.
DH thinks Zoe Wanamaker is strange looking ( I once asked him) although I think she is attractive.

I like the actor from Life On Mars who played Gene Hunt?
I als think the actress Nichola Walker is attractive. ( but again, DH does not.)

grannylyn65 Sat 05-Dec-15 15:50:11

Yes Mark Rylance, Alan Rickman and Richard Armitage ?

grannylyn65 Sat 05-Dec-15 15:51:44

One of the Glenisters,Roses.

Maranta Sat 05-Dec-15 15:52:33

Another for Mark Rylance here!

rosesarered Sat 05-Dec-15 15:55:31

Thanks grannylynn yes, Philip

I find Steven Tyler from Aerosmith very attractive, although he is funny-looking. He has been asked 'Didn't you used to be Mick Jagger?' tchsmile

Alea Sat 05-Dec-15 16:50:08

Patrick Stewart, Charles Dance, Alan Rickman.
Oh and Benedict Cumberbatch as a toy boy. tchgrin

starbird Sat 05-Dec-15 17:00:26

Bill Nighy

Patrick Grant who judges the Sewing Bee (who is of course classically good looking)

and Philip Glenister

Ana Sat 05-Dec-15 17:22:26

Agree about Alan Rickman and Bill Nighy - but Benedict Cumberbatch...? No thanks! tchshock

Teetime Sat 05-Dec-15 17:55:07

Alan Rickman - yes please.

I think if a man has an attractive voice, smiles readily and has a GOS he doesn't need to be classically handsome - that's what I tell DH anyway- we cant both be stunning! smile

starbird Sat 05-Dec-15 18:19:32

Just googled Alan Rickman as didn't know the name, yes he can go on my list! Born the same year as me which means he would be looking at someone 10-20 years younger!

Maggiemaybe Sat 05-Dec-15 18:41:42

I didn't realise that I'd have to fight quite so many people for Alan Rickman. I'm 9 years younger, starbird, so fancy my chances grin

KatyK Sat 05-Dec-15 19:10:28

roses My DH says Zoe Wanamaker is strange looking but he finds her attractive. Now where did I put my tin hat .......I think Russell Brand is attractive. tchsmile

Maggiemaybe Sat 05-Dec-15 19:12:07

Oh, he is, KatyK...till he opens that big gob tchgrin

whitewave Sat 05-Dec-15 19:13:45

Mark Rylance. So wanted to see him in London but didn't manage to get there.

Alan Rickman, Bill Nighy as well

I was watching a programme recently about operatic tenors and the presenter showed clips of the late Dietrich Fischer-Diskau. They were the same clips that I used to thrill to as an impressionable 16 year old. Almost unconsciously I found myself leaning towards the television absolutely drawn in, but whether, then as now, I was more beguiled by the voice or the looks I am not sure.

Barbera Streisand .Not a classic beauty but has that something. Doesn't ring my bell but just saying. grin

Definitely Glennister, it's the masculine thing I think.

Gabriel Byrne, now your talking.

grumppa Sat 05-Dec-15 21:11:00

Zoe Wanamaker yes; Barbara Streisand never. Emma Thompson certainly.
