The Eyes Have It

The sculpted, male body is a beautiful sight, but four thousand fifty-two out of five thousand women (yes, I conducted a very scientific poll) will choose eyes as a man’s most attractive feature.

Oddly enough, those carnal, breast and booty-obsessed beings—the male of our species—say the same thing about women. The eyes win out over all.

All right, I admit I did no poll whatsoever, but I remember hearing that somewhere.

Anyway, I’ve brought you some male celebrity eyes to consider. See how many you recognize.

Tell me about your favorite pair of eyes. Do they belong to a matinee idol or someone closer to home? Brown, green, blue or gray? What attracts you about this pair of eyes?

And do you believe the eyes are the portal to the soul?

Personally, I think someone can be a really rotten person and still have gorgeous eyes.

I can't think of a favorite movie star's eyes. But I do like green, blue, gray eyes or violet eyes on a guy. Unusual colored eyes are also a draw. I don't know how to describe it. I don't know I just think the eyes give it away on whether or not a person is lying or how they truly feel. We can say so much, without saying a word. I do think eyes are the windows to the soul. This was a great blog, it gave me a lot to think about. Thanks and have a great day. Hugs.

I think you are so correct. A person's eyes are as they say "a window to their soul".

I recognize some of your eyes...Johnny Deep, Colin Farrel and I think Antonio Bandaras...not sure who some of the others are. I think my favourite eye colour is green because that is not very common.

Over the weekend, I had to drive up to a piercing and tattoo shop in Providence. When I walked in and saw the guy who does the piercing I was taken aback. Aside from his red and black hair and multiple unique piercings, he had the most beautiful PIERCING ice blue eyes I've ever seen! I wanted to lick them. Come to think of it, I wanted to lick him, too! lol!

I agree with Nicole. I love unusual coloured eyes but lately you can't tell if they are real or coloured contacts :)

Favourite pair of eyes? Daniel Radcliffe's. I like deep blue eyes.

Blue-gray with little gold flecks in them and long blonde lashes. Those are my hubby's eyes.

Depends on my mood of the moment. Deep chocolate eyes like Depp's or Farrell's are great but I'm also partial to blue or jeez, any color. Jared Leto has about my favorite pair of eyes, but my photo of him was too small. When I enlarged it for the blog, it was grainy.

I love my husband's eye color. He has light brown eyes. Kind of like caramel. My toddler also has beautiful eyes. Up until he turned 2 they were dark blue. Then they changed to light brown with some green in them. He also has long lashes. His eyes are so pretty. I also recognized another celebrity to add to shuck ying's list. You can add Pierce Brosnan. Cool Blog today.

Wrong. No Pierce Brosnan in there. I'll post the names that go with the eyes along with the book winner tomorrow.

I'm partial to Bruce Willis's beautiful blue eyes. I love the scene at the end of Armaggedon where he's saying goodbye to his daughter and it's a close-up of his face. His eyes are so brilliant and full of sadness in that scene.

Banderas and Depp also have beautiful eyes. For me it isn't just the eye color it's the shape and how expressive they are.

I love it when a persons eyes seem to just sparkle when they smile:-)
That's what first attracted me to my boyfriend.

The most striking eyes that I have ever come across were a brilliant emerald green. The owner was of mixed descent, caucasion and Japanese (genetics would indicate that someone in the family tree had gotten together with a caucasion before). What really made it stand out was that he did not have the normal coloring you would expect of someone of mixed race. His hair was jet black.

Have been seeing various heroes and heroines with amber or violet eyes, but am hard put to imagine them. Amber always leads me to think yellow, which leads me to think of jaundice and hepatitis. Yes, I know that the authors mean the irises and not the whites, so to speak. LOL

I don't think I have a favorite pair of eyes. But I do like a guy with nice eyes.

I am also not sure I have a favorite color of eyes but I do think they give hints to the person behind them.

Isn't one of those pairs of eyes George Clooney's?

I like green eyes, the color of my husbands.

Eyes are my fave, and mouths. Oh, and hands, um, so maybe I like the whole package. Mr. B has pale blue eyes which both my boys have too (weird). #1's are greenish blue but #2's are pale blue with a white almost silver ring on the inside, they're amazing!

Okay, I want to take a stab at the "eyes"...

1. ?
2. Jude Law
3. Tyrese?
4. Johnny Depp
5. Denzel Washington
6. Antonio Banderas
7. Juaquin Phoenix?
8. Hugh Jackman?
9. Colin Farrell (yum)
10. Matthew McConaughey
11. Christian Bale?

How'd I do?

I think I saw antonio bandaras and colin farrell. But could be wrong. I love a dark eye man. Which is funny since all the men in my life my hubby and boys all have lighter eyes. I have a green eyed man. And my oldest son has blue eyes well they are blue most of the time. And My little one is green eyed too. Neither of them took after their mom with her dark brown eyes.

No Clooney. Again the shot I had of him didn't blow up well.

Many of Paige's guesses are right but not all. There are three people pictured who are less familiar to most people, oung actors who haven't been in 'big' movies yet but who's eyes slay me so much I'll catch any offbeat thing they're in.

Sounds like all colors of eyes are appreciated but especially when there's something unique about them.

You know, looking at these picks, I realize too we don't make alot of eye contact nor really look at the eyes until we have just that to picture, but I so love to read when the author describes the eyes of the characters! Thats the first thing I thought of when I started reading and seeing the pics of the eyes. It is important to get that feel of the eyes in the books written because you can sense warms, torture, love, so much!
Loved this topic. Now i'm going back to see if I can identify any. I only know NASCAR racers and Richard Gere LOL none of the other actors but I'd love to see later or tomorrow the answers.

Oooh, the eyes. Not sure if they're the window to the soul, but they certainly are expressive. I've seen some lovely ones. But if I had to choose, I'd pick the first boyfriend I ever had. Deep emerald green with golden flecks. Beautiful and intense. I also like a rich brown or sapphire blue. Yum.

As for the pictures, I definitely see a guy who could be Cillian Murphy. His ice blue eyes are so striking, I'm pretty sure it's him. Not sure if I like his eyes -- they do strange things to my stomach. He's not a large man, but he makes me nervous... I could have sworn one was Pierce Brosnan, but maybe that's Antonio Banderas. And the last one...could be Christian Bale, but might also be Tom Cruise. Not sure. I also see Jude Law, Johnny, Tyrese, and Matthew McConaughey (can't STAND him! Sexiest man alive? What were they THINKING? Julian McMahon should have won that one, hands down. He was in the running, I hear. Hmph. Okay, done now.)

Favorite eyes for me would be Josh Holloways. You just look at him and wonder what he's thinking. They're so mysterious. Add in a wink, a sexy grin and the raspy voice and I'm done in. haha!

I don't know if I favor a particular color, more those certain expressive eyes, and it is interesting to see those hazel green eyes that change colors depending on one's moods.

Okay, I agree with some names mentioned here, and have a couple more to throw in. I think maybe Tom Welling and Wentworth Miller, and I'm not sure of one who reminds of Anthony LaPaglia. I thought that one was Pierce, too, waiting to see who it really is

Hey KimW, stay away from my hunk, lol. I love Josh Holloway, but it's not just his eyes, it's the whole package and bad-boy attitude!

I do love a mans eyes..to me James Marsters has the sexiest eyes. I guess I'm a little wierd though. A mans hands is really what does it for me more. Guess it's just the thought of him touching me. I get fascinated by James's hands. LOL

Ok, so I'm jumping in late, but as eyes are definitely my favorite male feature, I couldn't resist posting!! I don't necessarily have a fave celeb pair of eyes, but I am partial to blue and/or green eyes. I am definitely drawn to unique/distinctive eyes whatever their color.

As for the celebs, I will add a couple to Paige's list (noting where I agree with Paige):

1. Wentworth Miller
2. Jude Law (Agree w/ Paige)
3. ???
4. Johnny Depp (Agree w/ Paige)
5. Denzel Washington (Agree w/ Paige)
6. Antonio Banderas (Agree w/ Paige though I originally thought it was Pierce Brosnan)
7. ???
8. Tom Welling
9. Colin Farrell (Agree w/ Paige)
10. Matthew McConaughey (Agree w/ Paige)
11. Christian Bale (Agree w/ Paige)

Eyes are the most attracting thing to me when checking someone out. I'll admit that blues and greens or grays seem to call my attention the most but really they don't have to be a special color to be appealing. Long lashes, or heavy lidded bed-room type eyes can attract me also. I recognized some of the pairs of eyes in the blog and most of the names are up but I could have sworn one pair of eyes belonged to Tobey Maguire.

My guesses:

Ewan McGregor
Jude Law
?
Johnny Depp
Denzel Washington
Antonio Banderas
?
Colin Farrell
Matthew McConaughey

I don't recognize a lot of the other names being mentioned.

Sigh, okay. Just scrolled down the page and saw Wenworth's pictures. I don't know who he is, but his eyes in the cropped shot look so much like McGregor's!
