UNITED KINGDOM
CLIVE OWEN

A 15-second daydream* starring England's intense leading man...

1. You're sitting in a London café with a pot of brewed-to-perfection tea and the ultimate cashmere sweater (it's cozy and slimming).

2. A draft of cool air rushes in. Clive Owen, 41, is standing in the doorway, looking even more smoldering than he does onscreen: tall (6'2"), dark, with green eyes like emerald bullets.

3. He's coming toward you.

4. He silently grabs your hand and leads you outside, where a Bentley awaits. You hop in and...

5. You instantly know why Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston have all clamored to share the screen with him. Amazing.

*Alas, Mr. Owen is married with two daughters. But a girl can dream!

AUSTRALIA
KEITH URBAN

Since Nicole Kidman showed up on the back of his Harley in July, the mystique meter has soared for the 38-year-old multi-platinum country rocker from Caboolture, Queensland. The draw?

Dolly Parton: "I spent several hours with him recording 'The Twelth of Never' for my new CD. The longer I was with him, the sexier he got. I couldn't keep my mind on my business."

Miranda Lambert (opening act on Urban's national tour); "Besides the fact that he's hot and speaks with an accent...he's vulnerable yet mysterious and smells really good."

Wynonna Judd: "Keith has heart and soul, He's not afraid to be himself and be authentic, which is rare in this business. I love him dearly, and I'm glad to see that good guys do finish first."

Marienne Urban (Keith's mom): "Out of the blue, for no reason, a big bunch of flowers will arrive at the door with a card that says 'Love you, Mum.' "

SWITZERLAND
ROGER FEDERER

He's the world's top-ranked tennis player and his sport's newest goodwill ambassador. Away from the game, the 24-year-old Basel native has sharpened up his look. What's behind his very cool achievements?

Control: "I'm much more composed than I used to be. Everybody told me I had to relax. I still throw my racket occasionally, but very seldom. Once every couple of months maybe."

A new haircut: "I was getting sick and tired of long hair, and it got shorter and shorter, so we asked [celebrity hairstylist] Sally Hershberger. We got good feedback. I feel more comfortable. It looks better off-court. Sometimes I really liked it on-court, and off-court it was horrible."

An updated wardrobe: "When I began receiving all these awards, I remember looking into my closet and I had like one or two suits. When I got the first Prada suit I was so happy to wear a suit like that because there was stretch. It felt like a tracksuit."

True love: He recently gave longtime girlfriend and former player Mirka Vavrinec, 27, a rock for her left ring finger. An engagement ring? According to Vavrinec, "it's an 'I love you very much' ring!"

JAPAN
KEN WATANABE

He played opposite Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai; in December he stars in Memoirs of a Geisha. But the 46-year-old actor would never dream of boasting about his successes-it's not his style. What is?

Humility: Even his name in Japanese means modesty. The anti-Hollywood leading man, he doesn't believe in compliments. "When I get one, I try to forget it. If you remember compliments too much, it might make you feel good, but it's important to stay down-to-earth," he says.

Discipline: "There is a Japanese saying, Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. I live by that. I have everything under control. No indulgences."

Simplicity: "I walk my dog every day and that's how I keep in shape. I'm very careful about my eating habits."

Adaptability: "Japanese restaurants try hard to be authentic, but I miss my food," he admits, revealing his one weakness. "I have things sent over to L.A." His culinary needs: "basic things like condiments, special rices or noodles that you can only get in Japan."
