I think that Adrien Brody is an handsome man, more handsome tha james franco. And that Marcello Mastroianni dosent look like Tony Curtis or Cornell Wilde. Anyway to put Adrien Brody in the same cathegory than that dwarf dedito and really ugly benigni is seriously unfair.

I agree, Brody is much better looking than Benigni and DeVito, but I don’t think he’s as good looking as Franco. Curtis and Wilde (and Muni) were better looking than Mastroianni.

Curtis was the batter looking of them all by far. But Mastroianni aged better. Wilde is not my tape, ne remember me a slender Victor Mature. Paul Munì was handsome.

Wilde is not my type, he remember me a slender Victor Mature.

I can’t take seriously James Franco as sex symbol, because he looks a lot like Fabio Fognini, tennis player.
