wink No. 1 Man's Man

http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Movi....ap/index.html



LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- George Clooney is the No. 1 man's man, according to a list compiled by AskMen.com.

The Oscar winner tops the Web site's list of what it calls the 49 best representatives of the male gender. Rap mogul Jay-Z, adventurer-entrepreneur Richard Branson, cyclist Lance Armstrong and designer Tom Ford make up the rest of the top five, in order.

The list was culled from nominations submitted by readers of the online magazine, who were asked to name the top "ambassadors of male-kind." Voters were asked to look for traits such as integrity, charisma and intelligence.

The list will be posted Tuesday.

Bill Clinton ranked 10th and Tiger Woods 13th. Travel-show host Anthony Bourdain was 19th on the list.

"I shall be sure to spend the week shooting things, barbecuing, drinking manly drinks to excess and high-fiving loudly while watching organized athletics," Bourdain said.

Rocker Bono was 27th, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was 29th and director Martin Scorsese was 46th. "Entourage" star Jeremy Piven ranked 49th.

I don't see Bruce on it, but when A Rod is on the list who would want to be on it anyway?

"In the late summer of 2006, we called out for AskMen.com readers to submit their nominations for the inaugural edition of our Top 49 Men list. The evaluation criteria was withheld because it had yet to be determined - we wanted you to supply it, so as to help shape, and not just populate, the list. So we kept the request simple: Provide us with the names of those men that you consider to be the best representatives of the male gender, along with the reasons why you deem them so.

More than 15,000 nominations flooded in, and plenty of supporting explanations with them. And while we managed to hone the nominees down to a final list of 100, refining the defining criteria proved much more difficult. After all, how does one summarize the accomplishments and influence of one man, let alone 49, with a mere few traits?

In the end, we decided to let the list speak for itself. The Top 49 Men of 2006 is the product of more than one million votes cast by AskMen.com readers, and every guy on it possesses some quality, characteristic or virtue that we men prize and strive to cultivate in ourselves."

Anderson's got it in spades

Bruce might define what manly is to me, he might be the pinnacle of all things manly

I voted to bump up Anderson. And Bono (#27? come on now!). Apparently many others agreed too.

And Westport, I've yet to see your picture, so.... the vote is still out on you

Walter Cronkite is 90?


MUTUAL ADMIRATION

It's props all around! George Clooney accepts the Walter Cronkite Faith and Freedom Award from the veteran newsman himself in New York on Wednesday. The actor and humanitarian told Cronkite, "You are what I wish to be – except 90!" Cronkite's response? "We're so grateful for your talent being given to our nation."

Nothing says "manly" like blue lips and a purse.

But remember what he said, you just dislike him cause he's so good looking. Or cause he's biracial, and every other reason he gave..
