George Clooney wins again. A new University of Colorado–Boulder study shows that women who are partnered with men who are “not quintessentially masculine” are more likely to fantasize about macho men when they’re fertile when compared with women who already have Clooney types as partners.
So what does a “masculine” man look like? A strong chin and jaw, narrow eyes, and a defined brow. Study author Steven Gangestad says Clooney is a good example. Who exemplifies the polar opposite of macho? Pee-wee Herman.
Researchers think the preference has to do with biology: Manly features can mean good genes, and pronounced jaws and eyebrows are signs of testosterone.
But the real question is this: Does George Clooney ever lose? Ever? At anything?
