Okay Dopers, if you were a member of the opposite sex, who would you want to look like and why? The name of a celebrity you’d like to resemble will probably be the best answer since everyone will know what they look like (or can find out on Google), but if you want to give a description instead that’s fine. For the purposes of this question I consider gender identity more important that your actual physical sex, so anyone who identifies as a woman should pick a man/masculine description and anyone who identifies as a man should pick a woman/feminine description. Oh, and your alter-ego can be whatever sexual orientation you like.
As for me, I’m thinking if I were a man right now I’d want to look like Ewan McGregor. He’s quite an attractive young man, but not in a threatening or intimidating way. I know lots of women really like the more “dangerous” types, but I’d wouldn’t like to be the sort of guy who any woman would look at and be scared of or who would cause a girlfriend’s parents to make grim faces if she brought me home for Thanksgiving. So no rugged biker or soulful but emaciated poet look for MascuLamia. No, I’d be a fine, handsome, healthy Scotsman! Okay, I guess I wouldn’t actually be Scottish since I didn’t mention anything about changing ethnicity as well as sex, but I’m sure I’d still look damn good in a kilt. And I don’t think I’d be so much of a prettyboy that other guys would give me too much of a hard time about my appearance (unless I wore a kilt often). Nope, I think I’d be one lucky dude, if I were a dude, and I looked like Ewan McGregor.
