Ben It's good to see Ben life has changed for the better. I think Ben has learned his lesson about keeping his private life as low-key as possible. Ben doesn't talk about his family as much as some of the other celebs. I think being burned by over-exposure has just made him more over protective of his family life. Good for Ben, Jen and Violet. In a recent interview Ben said that they try to keep Violet out of the spotlight as much as possible. He sounds like a protective dad to me.

Ima, Being gay is more than just a sexual act. Being gay involves having committed and romantic relationships with the same gender. Maybe Tom Cruise at one point in his life experimented that way, I don't know, I don't know him personally, but what I do know is at this point he's committed to a woman. Maybe he hasn't come out as gay because he hasn't fallen in love with a man, nor has he found one that he wants a relationship with. I just don't think sexuality and identity is that black and white is all and I don't get the Tom Cruise witch hunt. I'm not even a Tom Cruise fan myself, I just don't understand it. Nor am I gay or bisexual, I just find the witch hunt interesting.

Ben. A guy who chages for his daughter's well beeing is an amazing dad. he is a different guy since Violet, and for that he has my respect.

Ben. Violet's got him wrapped around her little finger already. I can't wait to see them together while she grows up. She has changed him for the better.

I was torn between Brad and Tom. In the end I chose Brad.. but I still think Tom is a great father. IMA your gay "speculations" ;) are pretty convincing! :D But I have to choose not to believe them :P I'm still a sucker for Tom! xD Dunno why, so don't ask me to explain.. Strange huh?! ______________________________________ \Don't chase the beat of your heart/

He adopted his mistress kids. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Honey, she isn’t his mistress, she is his partner, and the fact that he adopted these kids because he loves them and didn’t want them to fell different from Shiloh shows how much of a good father he is. So back off.

Love 'em all with their children... even have to give Tom props for being at the soccor games and maintaining a great relationship with Nicole. But have to vote forBrad. He's slipped right into a ready-made situation and looks like a terrific, loving dad. I love the comments he's made about being with his kids.

I choose Ryan. He seems to have such a good time with his kids and they always look so happy. Yes, maybe he cheated or not but we dont know for sure . And we also dont know what happened with him and Reese behind closed doors...maybe she was a fridged b*tch, maybe hes a hoochie, maybe they just drifted apart ...but who knows? But that doesnt make him a bad dad by any means. ( plus it doesnt hurt hes so damn cute! ;) )

LOL Ima! I choose all, but Tom & Will, b/c if you teach your children scientology, you can't be that great.

I would have a hella lot of respect for him if he just came out and said..hey I am gay and this whole hoopla was a desperate attempt to hold on to my female fan base..but that will never happen. Whether a gay man stays in the closet or comes out is his own right and decision...but to create the over the top drama to try to fool the public..seems shady. The other entertainers that I like whether straight or gay no matter: Ricki Martin, Kevin Spacey and even dare I say Channing if it is true. But either just keep being "unattached" and take your mother to red carpet events or introduce us to your boyfriend... don't take advantage of and knock up a naive sitcom actress and make her a laughing stock to the world. But Tom is straight as the day is long. Virile and talented and handsome... don't come after me Tom :)

I thought Ben Affleck for a while, but then I saw an interview with him on Ellen he was really not that enthusiastic about having kids. People fawn all over him and his relationship with Garner, but after seeing that I really don't put much stock in what they have together. For me it's Brad all the way. He wanted them babies and I'm so happy that he has been able to fulfill that desire. I love all the dads though. I have nothing against Tom Cruise. His sexuality is his own. I once read an article by a gay man who said he found something really sick and bigoted the way people within the gay community and outside it try and out Tom Cruise. If he's gay then he is, if not then he's not. It's his sexuality, I feel if he has issues in that area why should I degrade him for it.

Brad "became" a father of 3 in less than two years, ugh! It makes it sound like he did something fantastic or noble. They forget to mention he had an affair first and adopted his mistresses two children? Some Father of the Year...pleez! Ima - loved your explanation of Tom, too funny & sad, but right on!

Will is probably a great dad, but I don't considering putting his kids in his movies a strong plus. Tom wasn't always celibate with Mimi, as she mentioned in an article years ago. "Foreshadowing problems that would soon surface as rumours in the Cruise-Kidman marriage, Rogers claimed their sexual relationship had waned. 'Tom was seriously thinking of becoming a monk,' she said. 'He thought he had to become celibate.' I agree that he's probably more interested in the other team, but I'm a little dubious about an elaborate scheme of written confidentiality contracts. A guy that controlled wouldn't leave a paper trail or be sloppy by hitting on the security staff. More likely he is celibate.

Thanks for making it so easy Pop (not). I think they are all great fathers. They each have their issues, but they kids are not part of that. I believe each one of these men wanted their children very much and appreciate every day they get with them, as any parent should.
