Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper & Jeremy Renner: who would you rather?


The NYC premiere for American Hustle was last night, trying to hustle up some game-changing Oscar campaign math. And they might just pull it off, God knows. My take? Considering how crazy people are going for Jennifer Lawrence’s performance, I think J-Law is going to be nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars. I think the film will definitely be on the Best Picture shortlist too, and maybe David O. Russell will get another Best Director nomination. But the hopes many had that Amy Adams would be nominated for Best Actress? I’m not so sure. We’ll see. There’s still a lot of math to do in the Oscar laboratory.

Anyway, last night’s premiere was mostly a sausage party – Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t there, and Amy Adams was the biggest “fashion girl” on the carpet. So mostly, just look at the guys. I think Bradley Cooper has had a recent haircut, right? I don’t care for it, but then again… I can’t say that I ever care that much about Bradley’s hair. He has nice hair, for sure, but sometimes I feel like his hair makes up for some gaps in his skills? Jeremy Renner looks pretty much the same as always and there were about a million photos of him making weird faces. And Christian Bale actually looks hella sexy with that scraggily beard. Bless him. I can’t believe it, but I think the beard just put Bale on my “I would hit it” list.

I’m also including some bonus photos of Amy Adams. Amy wore this absolutely terrible Elie Saab gown. EW. It looks so cheap! I really hope her fashion game improves through this promotional tour.

PS… I love Bradley’s coat.

    Why the facial hair, Jeremy? It does not work. At all.

  2. Lark says:

    I despise those sheer dresses, and they are last season too…so why are they popping up again! Ugh. Bradley looks hot.

  3. NerdMomma says:

    I’d pass on all three and take Amy Adams out for drinks instead :-)

  4. ANDREA1 says:

    I wouldn’t hit any of them

  5. V4Real says:

    Bale, Bale and more Bale. He would have to shave that damn beard and Ron Jeremy porn stache first. Sorry honey, not every good looking man looks good with that much facial hair.

  6. Jill says:

    Is Bradley Cooper capable of ever not looking creepy anymore?

  7. eliza says:

    Renner’s suit. Ahahahahaaaa!

    I am curious. Why is it Renner is trying to pretend he and his baby momma are a thing but she is rarely, if ever with him at red carpet events or out with him period.

    I have a friend who frequents that awful Chateau Marmont and sees Renner there on the reg but never with anyone other than his buddies. You would think a new father with a girlfriend he was just bragging about, saying she is awesome because she thinks like a man, would occasionally be together, even out for a dinner or drink.

    I find it odd.

    As for who I would hit. Ummmmmm definitely not cyclops Cooper. I guess it would be between Bale and Renner, but only if Renner shaved off that mess from his face and grew a few inches.

    Adams looks great.

    Why Christian Bale’s wife always wears black?

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Probably because she is the ‘date’ i.e. not part of the actual film, and doesn’t want to draw attention to herself. If she wears something more showy, then people will start saying she’s a famewhore–have you ever read the posts when Matt Damon’s wife is on the red carpet? We only see her with him, we don’t know anything about their relationship or Lucy herself, beyond how they met—but apparently a lot of people know that she’s a golddigging ho’ because she had a kid when they met and because she worked in a bar in Miami.
      So either way, Sibi isn’t going to win–but I do like that she doesn’t try to draw attention to herself at all–unlike Hilaria Baldwin.

      Plus, it’s easiest to just pick out a simple dress.

    • lenje says:

      Christian and Sibi wear black ALL the time.

  9. Patricia says:

    Christian Bale any day, any time, anywhere. I need help when it comes to him, always have.
    Amy’s dress would look so much better with less cutouts, especially in the bodice. It’s a nice concept and she looks beautiful, but too many cutouts starts to look trashy, and we all expect her to be a classy gal. I like the halter top, it’s flattering on her.

  10. KromBoom says:

    I’ll pass too.

    But Amy Adams! I’ll take one of those hair comb/hairband things that I had in 1996. Not even being sarcastic. They were awesome for flyaways.

    • Brown says:

      I was coming here to comment on her hairband, too! I had like 40 of those things. You had to put them on like a choker collar and then slide them up over your face, and the pointy parts would always poke you in the eyeballs and there would always be one rogue piece of hair that didn’t quite get swept up the right way…. <3 the 90s

  11. hadleyb says:

    I think Amy looks great, love her dress.

    Bradley looks creepy, wtf is he wearing ? He can’t pull that off. That hair. NO.

    Yes, I ‘d still bang Bale. He’s hot no matter what.

  12. JM says:

    Normally, I’d pass on all three, but that beard Christian is sporting is giving me lady wood. I can imagine getting lost on a mountain, stumbling across a remote cabin and finding him inside wearing nothing but that beard.

  13. CaribbeanLaura says:

    Is it wrong that I find Cristian Bale attractive? I mean I know he has some rage monster tendencies and that I can’t stand. But for some reason I find him physically attractive. Also he once sang the power puff girls theme song on a Peter Travers interview.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      NO. And he is not a rage monster–there were two incidents, correct? One was when he yelled at a crew member(I heard the tape, he was more like a po’d father lecturing a dad–I was expecting actual screaming–he mostly sounded very tired and annoyed) for messing up a scene like four times–and he apologized to the crew, and then he apologized again (4 years later–Terminator was shot in 2004, the tape came out in 2008) publicly and didn’t give a bs ‘I’m sorry you were offended’ apology.

      The second thing was with his mom–basically the story I heard (on CB) was that his mom and sisters have always had a strained relationship–due to the fact that he chose to live w/his dad in America, instead of staying in the UK. This was when The Dark Knight was premiering in London–so he was in for the premiere. His mom and older sister barged into his hotel room (drunk was the rumor), and it ended with him pushing his mom away, and they were all yelling at each other. The rumor is that she wanted money, (and I’m assuming it’s not the first time she’s asked for money) and when she didn’t get that, then she started insulting his wife-Sibi-so he pushed them out of his hotel room. So then his mom and sister drove back to wherever they lived, and called the police the next day. In England, you can get arrested for ‘verbal assault’ i.e. yelling/threatening–so the police let him do his premiere, then he went into the station, posted bail, and left.

      Do I think he probably has a bad temper when pushed? Yes. Do I think he’s a rage monster a la Alec Baldwin or Sean Penn. HELL NO.

      So yes, I would hit it. HARD. Until his beard fell off.

    • Algernon says:

      I think it’s also because he can get a bit spiky in interviews, but the interview stuff started *after* the rage monster stuff and I’ve always assumed it was because he sensed people were trying to push him into losing it for better soundbites.

  14. lenje says:

    Bale looks better without the beard, but this is a man who is hot whether he’s bearded or not. I can’t be objective when it comes to him :D

  15. Lydia says:

    I love Christian Bale. My god, he looks good. His wife always looks the same though. Black clothing, hair parted down the middle. So boring.

    • Algernon says:

      I find Sibi Bale incredibly refreshing. A celebrity’s wife who isn’t interested in being a celebrity herself: how novel. She is dressed appropriately for the event, she looks lovely and is smiling (doesn’t look grumpy to be there like some red carpet wives, ahem, Mrs. Wahlberg), but she is clearly not interested in garnering attention herself. It’s proof that not everyone that gets involved with a celebrity wants to be one themselves.

  16. blue marie says:

    I am loving everything about Amy Adam’s look, girl looks good!
    And if I had to choose, I guess it would be Bale but it would be a total shamef-ck cause I’m sure I would need to say out of his eye line.

  17. Sam H x says:

    Oh Bradley, how I’ve missed thee!! I love his hair shorter, it really brings out his eye colour. I would pick Bradley who looks very handsome here. Amy is a gorgeous woman, the dress would look better if it didn’t have the lace cut outs.

  18. please says:

    Renner looks to be wearing one of Hillary’s pant suits.

  19. Hubbahun says:

    Renner now and forever (despite him losing some of the hot over the past year, can’t put my finger on why). He’s a good guy though unlike douchey Bale and serial killer Coop.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      That’s what I was thinking–but maybe it’s because of the dress. It makes her look a lot wider than she really is, a bit bigger. Maybe she just gained some weight. It’d be cool if she was though. I got the impression that they only had one child, because that was all they could afford. I know that up until Batman, CB wasn’t all that rich–and Sibi worked as an assistant on film sets (that’s where they met)–so she wasn’t rolling in cash either. I like that they had only as many kids as they could afford (or want).

      • lunchcoma says:

        I got that sense as well, and that it was possibly also a career-based move. Not to say that people with large families can’t balance their personal and professional lives, but there is more flexibility when there’s only one child whose school schedule and activities and friendships need to be accounted for, especially when one parent travels a great deal.

        In any case, there’s certainly nothing wrong with having one child. There’s no reason that two (no more and no less) is the right number of kids for everyone.

    • Lydia says:

      His wife is like 44. I wouldn’t think so. Certainly not impossible, though.

  20. Lunchcoma says:

    Girls night out with Amy and Jennifer, please.

    All of these boys are too skeevy for me,in their own special ways. But if I must choose one, Renner, who I’m guessing is at least skeevy in a way that translates into good sex.

  21. Ashling says:

    Bale. I don’t believe he is a horrible rage monster.

  22. GIRLFACE says:

    I love Amy. She is so awesome in interviews and she looks super hot even though the dress isn’t a knockout. I think I would rather Christian Bale if he shaved. Also, I don’t know why but I always think about his Terminator rant and it kind of tarnished his attractiveness in my mind. Same thing with Bradley’s taste for 19 year olds or whatever.

  23. umyeah says:

    Bale all the way. Renner and Cooper look so creepy.

  24. Grant says:

    I don’t think Amy looks terrible. I much prefer Bradley Cooper with short hair. I think the long hair looks ridiculous.

  25. shump says:

    I would rather gnaw my own leg off than sleep with any of them. All the facial hair is tragic.

  26. Zizi says:

    There is something- something awesome and unusual- about him that sets him apart from most actors and male celebs…

  27. MsAubra says:

    Bradley looks good there. The short hair suits him when he has a bit of facial hair

  28. MisJes says:

    It’s a shame Jennifer wasn’t there, I would have like to see what she wore. She looked AMAZING at the press junkets for American Hustle earlier that day! Couldn’t be helped but – apparently she had to bail as she had a 6am call time for Mockingjay in Atlanta the next day, and was worried she’d miss it if she got stuck in NYC with the weather.

  29. miriam says:

    I don’t find any of these guys remotely attractive. They’re good looking, but not appealing to me at all.

  30. Jess says:

    Bale. Cooper is just….no, and Renner’s not even that cute.

  31. rightgrrl says:

    Since Amy Adams wasn’t given as a choice I guess I’d have to go with Bale (as long as he promises not to yell at me)

  32. Melody says:

    I almost shouted “WHAT THE HELL???” at my screen at the sight of Renner’s lapel-less coat. Completely disoriented now. Down with time-traveller fashion!

  33. Secret Squirrel says:

    Renner’s goatee looks like the budget version of Tony Starks. Something for the next Avengers movie perhaps (evil twin!).
    I do not find Bale handsome in the slightest. Happy to leave him to others who appreciate his look!
    Coops can be pretty but doesn’t work for me here.

    I think I’ll head over the ocean and see what the hot pale british chaps are doing…

  34. Barbara says:

    Love Christian….I believe he and I would butt heads a lot, but have a hella good time in the sack.

  35. Trice says:

    Ugh, typically I would pass on all three. Christian Bale seems like he would be such a brooding creep behind closed doors, Jeremy Renner is blah, & Bradley Cooper just seems odd & intense. Based on these pictures alone though, I’d go with Cooper. This is actually the best I’ve seen him in awhile, he looks much better with trimmed hair. Also, the first picture you posted of Amy Adams has to be the most unflattering I’ve ever seen her look! However, after I scrolled down she looks MUCH prettier, very pretty in fact, in the shots that are head on. I’m not hating the dress, but I am hating the headband. I reminds me of the late 90′s or early 2000′s & something that I would wear to wash my face at night. Did she just forget to take it off after getting her makeup done?! Blah.

  36. browniecakes says:

    We girls may not love these boys, but Renner and Coopers’ moms sure do. Brad and his mom live together since his dad died. Jeremy took Valerie his mom just last month to the Hollywood Thor premiere. He takes her everywhere. Wonder how that works with the baby mamma? ‘Don’t wait up, Mom and I will be back by 2am’?

  37. lucy2 says:

    Definitely Bale, though I’m not sure about the beard.
    Renner seems like a nice guy and is a good actor (he was great in The Town) but I don’t find him attractive. And Bradley Cooper I used to find cute back in his TV days, but not anymore. He always looks creepy, which might not be his fault, but that’s all I see!

    I really dislike sheer dresses, but I’m kind of liking Amy’s. I may be biased because I like her so much though.

  38. Heyboy says:

    Heard Jeremy is an awesome bottom. So I will pick him.
