The Pop Eye's Sexiest - 2007

To coincide with TV Guide's Sexy Issue, I've decided to take this time to pay homage to "the sexy." Straight men, if you want to shield your eyes and file a complaint that I'm not giving equal time to the ladies, go read Playboy. Or Penthouse. Or Maxim, FHM, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or the Victoria's Secret catalog. Or just turn on the TV. Any channel.

10. Jesse Bradford - Ah, such boyish charm! The first time I ever saw Jesse was in Bring it On, a movie that I'm not ashamed to admit to loving. Recently, I saw him in Happy Endings, and he still managed to look good with way too much facial hair. Never been a fan of facial hair, but the hair on Jesse's head is just how I like it: thick, unruly and dark. You'll notice that is a common trait that many of "my" men share. I'm noticing one other...I'll get to that later.

9. Patrick Dempsey - With him being so over-hyped in the media, I should probably be sick of Dr. McDreamy by now, but how could I be? He's gotta have the best hair on the list. Besides, his extreme sexiness is worth talking about ad nauseam, considering his extreme dorkiness in the '80s. Let him, and all of us, bask in his newfound hotness.

8. Paul Rudd - Another cute, boy-next-door type. However, there is always something behind his smile that kind of hints that he's hiding some dirty little secret. It's very endearing and appealing.

7. Chris Cornell - It's been proven that Chris can hit notes that can actually make women ovulate. I can't cite the exact studies but, trust me, it's the truth. Also, he's one of the few guys who always sports facial hair and can always pull it off.

6. Johnny Depp - He can put on all the bad wigs, makeup and fake teeth that he wants. We all still know that this (everyone, stare at picture...make sure to wipe that drool off your keyboards) is what he looks like underneath. He's almost too good looking to be on this list...I like my men slightly imperfect. But sexy and Johnny go together like Jump and Street, so he had to be here.

5. Bradley Cooper - This is a guy who has really caught my eye lately. I first noticed him as that total a-hole, Sack, from Wedding Crashers. He was the perfect, smarmy bad guy. I started seeing him as "the jerk" in a lot of movies, until Failure to Launch, where he played Matthew McConaughey's nature-loving best friend. (Yes, there was serious hottie overload in that movie.) He doesn't even have dark hair. He has the other trait I mentioned earlier's coming.

4. Ewan McGregor - Another of the light-haired variety (well, sometimes) but I'm a sucker for the accent! Ewan is so cute, and he knows it without being too cocky. If you've ever seen him in an interview, you know what I'm talking about. He's got such a flirtatious energy about him that's really irresistible. A friend of mine keeps promising me that we're going to have a "naked Ewan McGregor night," where we will have a film festival of all the movies in which he's appeared in the buff. I only knew of one...imagine my delight when I found out there were more!

3. Jeremy Sisto - Well, we're at the top 3, and the order here hasn't changed in YEARS. solid #3 man. Actually, I recently watched his film, The Movie Hero and his performance in that almost prompted me to bump him up to the #2 spot. However, I pictured #2 Man giving me that dark and brooding look he gets and I couldn't go through with it. But, #3 is still mighty fine. That hair. Those eyes. That voice. That...crooked mouth. That's what you've all been waiting for, folks. I never realized it until recently, but there's something about a crooked mouth that is so attractive to me. I love when a man smiles and it's kind of a smirk that travels diagonally up his face. Jesse, Bradley, Jeremy, and maybe even Paul all have it. I used to even think that the dorky singer from Third Eye Blind was cute too, and the first thing I noticed about him was that he had a crooked mouth. See what I mean when I say I like my guys slightly imperfect? I'm weird, I know.

2. Eddie Vedder - What can I say about this man that I haven't said a million times already? He touches my soul. What's hotter than that? Bearded or clean-shaven, long-hair or short hair, brunette or blonde (the platinum blonde phase was way hot, strangely enough), it doesn't matter. He even managed to stay beautiful with a mohawk, which isn't easy.

1. John Travolta - Unless this is the first time you've read my blog, this is no shock. Please don't ask me if I've seen the "chubby" pics of him in the hot tub. Please don't ask what I think about the "gay" rumors. Please don't start in on Scientology and Battlefield Earth. Many have tried to taint John in my eyes and all have failed. He was my first love, and I adore him. I don't care how much he weighs, I don't care if he's losing his hair or any of that other nonsense. He'll always be THE man.

Wow, I definitely have a type. Look especially at numbers 3, 8, 9 and 10 (and compare them to a young Johnny T). They all look like brothers...or at least cousins. Cold you imagine a family like that? I'd go skinny-dipping in that gene pool any day.


Patrick J. Rodio said...

Interesting list. Maybe I'll put a hot chick list together soon. Being comfortable in my manly manliness, I'd agree with your Dempsey, Bradford & Sisto, but I'd give Vedder, Cornell and Travolta the boot.

No Jackman? No Bale?

TSC said...

Oh my god !!

My favourite John Travolta !!!!!

Thanks for the infos !!

Happy Villain said...

Mmmmmmmm, what a yummy list! You have impeccable taste, m'dear, and now I think I need a cold shower.

Oh, and have you heard Cornell singing "Billy Jean" yet? It's actually good! My brother gave me a copy and said only, "Listen to this. Cornell is a god." Only HE could make that song worth listening to again!

Ultra Toast Mosha God said...

Yeah, I'm surprised at the absence of Bale.

Thought he would be right up your alley.

So to speak.

Les Becker said...

All good (Johnny Depp is MINE.). Where's Chuck?

deadspot said...

Apropos of nothing, I have unruly dark hair and a propensity for smirking.

Oh, by the way... tag, you're it.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'm trying to think of a movie in which Ewan MacGregor has NOT shown his naughty bits. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

I must be number 11.


Travis said...

This topic has come up many times in my chats with my sweet lady. I ask her and she says she has no need of 10. For her it is 2.

I say, who?

She says, "Well, you and George Clooney".

Yes, she is an expert at stroking my ego.

Hell I am with you on John Travolta!


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
