Nearly every day, there seems to be an article profiling yet another hunky Hollywood star who -- gasps -- helps out around the house.
Most recently, Clive Owen, bragged about his housekeeping skills.
"I do my fair bit of chores," says Owen, who has been married since 1995 and has two daughters, 12 and 10. "I'm very hands-on when I'm home. It's not alien to me to be washing up and doing the laundry."
And not long ago, Eric Bana declared housework the ultimate "aphrodisiac." The "Time Travelers' Wife" actor revealed the way to win a woman's heart is by keeping a clean home.
I'm good around the house. I'm not stealing my wife's thunder, but I do clean. Housework is a bigger aphrodisiac to women than a set of abs, I've found!
Are these proclamations designed to drive women to buy movie tickets or to bug their husbands to help out around the house?
