Staff Picks! Gratuitous Hottie Face Off: Christian Bale vs. Jake Gyllenhaal
Usually, with our Gratuitous Hottie articles, I (Alexandra) get to pick the two sexy men and then because I like the feeling of power, I decide who gets to be crowned 'Hottest of them all'. However, to change it up, I thought I would give some say to the other ChickStaffers. This week, I'm picking one of my all time fave crushes- Jake Gyllenhaal and the fabulous Shiori will pick hers- Christian Bale. Then, because we love to watch some hot man battles, we'll pit them against each other in three rounds- we'll each be rooting for our own pick! After three grueling rounds, one man will be left standing!
Round 1: Nice Guy vs. Bad Boy

Alexandra: Jake Gyllenhaal is the type of nice guy you want to take home to your mom and dad for Christmas dinner. And he'd probably bring the mashed potatoes too- 'cause he's adorable like that. Bale would probably just scream at everyone there.
Shiori: As we already know from Gratuitous Hottie: Gossip Girl edition, I like my men on the darker side. Bale has that edginess that I find very attractive.
Winner: We decided to go to an impartial third party for this decision. Mandy says, "Nice boys are better" which is good enough for us! Jake wins!
Round 2: Who has the nicer eyes?

Alexandra: I think Jake Gyllenhaal has the nicer eyes- they're big and blue and he reminds me of a puppy dog in the best possible way. I think Bale's eyes are too squinty- like an evil shark.
Shiori: I'm all about the hazel-green eyes. They're unique and I want to stare into them all day long.
Winner: We (mostly, I, Alexandra) thinks that this round goes to Jake because his ocean blues eyes are most definitely something we'd (i.e. I'd) like to take a swim in.
Round 3: Who looks better with a little scruff on 'em?

Alexandra: I won't lie- I love a nice scruffy beard. The bigger the better. I absolutely love the beard of Jake- I think he looks so rough and still so cute at the same time.
Shiori: I prefer just a bit of a five o' clock shadow - so that he doesn't look dirty and gross (*hem hem* Jake Gyllenhaal...)
Winner: Alexandra's preference for big beards seems to be isolated to just her so this round's winner is Christian Bale! Even she has to admit that Bale's scruff is pretty sexy.
And the winner is.... Jake Gyllenhaal! Alexandra is very happy about the outcome of the (totally unbiased, of course) competition!

i'm not into either of these guys/haven't really watched movies with them, but christian has my vote.. the other guy looks dischevelled and child-like..
Christian Bale, and it's even better that he was a great Batman!
I love Jake! His role in Good Girl was so strange but like, weirdly captivating. I don't think I've ever seen Christian in anything but still, Jake definitely deserved this championship;)
Jake is an amazing looking man. I would kiss him upside down.
I prefer Christian Bale !!!
Hands down Gyllenhaal. Easy.
