Well knock me over with a feather. I tallied up the results of my recent website survey, where I asked PTA members the following question:
In Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA, a Hollywood studio announces plans to shoot a major motion picture in the local schoolyard. When the women in the town learn that it means they might have a chance to meet George Clooney, decorum crumbles like a cupcake from last week's bake sale. What if this was your home town? If you could choose which Hollywood leading man you'd most like to offer your cupcakes to, who would it be?
Since I based an entire novel on the premise that George Clooney is the single hottest man in the universe, I expected him to win in a landslide. Imagine my surprise when he came in a distant second to pretty Matthew McConaughey. Not there's anything wrong with Matthew McConaughey. He's a perfectly beautiful-looking man. But more desirable than George Clooney? Smart, gorgeous, funny, talented, politically- savvy, Darfur-conscious George Clooney? (I worked myself into a lather just writing that list.)
But okay. The numbers don't lie. In my little survey, only 2 out of 10 women wanted to offer George Clooney a chance to lick their buttercream frosting. Here then are the results:
1. Matthew McConaughey (39%)
2. George Clooney (21%)
3. Patrick Dempsey (15%)
4. Orlando Bloom (12%)
5. Johnny Depp (9%)
Receiving less than 1% each were: Antonio Banderas, Tom Cruise, James Denton, Jamie Foxx, Adrian Grenier, Brad Pitt, and Denzel Washington.
