Tally up your score! How’d you do?
If you scored:
You got Brad Pitt.
With apologies to Angelina, it turns out that YOU are the official soulmate of the most handsome man alive. And while we all appreciate his efforts at depth and resonance, I mean … sheesh, just look at the guy. Nice work, Nana.
You got Denzel Washington.
Ambition and focus propel your life, and you need a confidant who can keep up. Enter Denzel. Smart, upstanding and intense, there’s no better companion in your quest for greatness. Oh, and he’s easy on the eyes, too.
You got Antonio Banderas.
Since it’s adventure and passion you crave, the former Mr. Griffith is your perfect partner. Worldly, sophisticated — and funny — he’ll show you a life beyond your humdrum routine and leave you begging for more. Don’t forget your passport.
You got Jeff Bridges.
You love ‘em gentle, laid back and bear-like? Jeff “The Dude” Bridges is your guy. A dedicated family man and monster talent, he never lets the little stuff bum him out. And in terms of a romantic match, that’s, like, pretty cool, man.
You got Daniel Day-Lewis.
Poetry, music, art … these are the things of life. Your continued existence depends on creative expression, and you need a spouse who understands your endeavors. Fortunately, the UK’s greatest living actor is there to provide and to kick back with a cold pint when the situation calls.
You got Steve Martin.
A great, ivory-haired man once said, “I believe that sex is one of the most beautiful, natural, wholesome things that money can buy.” If you get the joke — and feel that a little bit of humor is imperative to a delightful day-to-day — Mr. Martin is the one for you.
