Most common reaction: Who??

OK, boys and girls, men and women, here's the link for People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2007 in case you need to see the pics. I guess I definitely need to be watching more crap TV or chick-flicks or something, because I drew a blank on lots of the names.
  1. Matt Damon. I've said many times that Matt would never get this little honor, just because his Ocean's 11-12-13 cast buddies (many of whom have won it... some more than once) keep teasing him about it. A little young for me but I do love him as Bourne.
  2. Patrick Dempsey. Can't remember if he's McDreamy or McSteamy or McRib, don't watch Grey's Anatomy, but McDreamy and McSteamy are both on my list of Most Annoying Pop Culture Words.
  3. Ryan Reynolds. Not familiar with this guy.
  4. Brad Pitt. Ryan Reynolds must be puffing his chest out a bit to have edged out Brad Pitt. Brad has definitely got it, but I don't drool over him unless he's Achilles.
  5. James McAvoy. Don't remember seeing him in anything, but if he has a Scottish accent it's a definite plus. Actually, it's almost enough by itself. Just talk, I don't care what you look like.
  6. Johnny Depp. My choice. Every year. Impossibly good looking and unconceited. prrrr.
  7. Dave Annable. Another one I don't know.
  8. Will Smith. Love Will, he's adorable and a good actor. I will see him in almost anything.
  9. Javier Bardem. Don't know him yet, but will be seeing him in No Country For Old Men.
  10. Shemar Moore. Another blank on my pop culture radar.
  11. Ben Affleck. Makes a comeback after the whole Bennifer effect wears off. Really not appealing to me though.
  12. Adrian Grenier. Don't know who he is. Cute kid, nice hair. Too young for me to take a glance at, with exception to the age rule made for Legolas in LOTR... but then Legolas is not young, he's a couple of thousand years old at least, right? Riiiight.
  13. Will Yun Lee. Another blank here.
  14. Justin Timberlake. Yeah, I can see this one. Not really my type though. A bit young.

My list would be Johnny Depp, plus a few old coots like Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Harrison Ford, Peter Coyote, Michael York (in the 60s), Mick Jagger, and some not so old like Ewan McGregor, Christian Bale, Clive Owen, Naveen Andrews, Liam Neeson (has he achieved cootdom yet?). Bruce Willis and George Clooney are edging on there too. Clooney... I just like HIM, it doesn't matter what he looks like.

So what's it about? Smile? Hair? Butt? Abs? Eyes? Personality? Humor?

If I was doing hard time in prison and Matt Damon was my cell mate, I'd totally be his bee-otch.

konagod said...

a little young for you??? I was about to say he's 10 years past his prime! :lol:

The sad thing about being middle-aged is that the second thing that comes to mind is "I'm old enough to be his mother". If they're over 40, I can skip over that thought. ;-)

Dr. M, let's hope that scenario doesn't actually happen in real life (I mean the prison thing), save it for the movies (or fanfics).

None of them do a damned thing for ME!

DAMN YOU, heterosexuality!!! ;)

Javier Bardem was in a movie with Johnny Depp. JD had 2 very small parts (2 different characters) and if you are intersted in the telling of a real life of a gay man who escaped from Cuba in order to be free to be gay, you want to see it. Javier Bardem. mmmmmm. Before Night Falls http://imdb.com/title/tt0247196/

Another depp head.

Thanks anon. Actually I did see that one a few years ago so I have seen him. (I am a space case sometimes) It's a good one.

so funny...I read the list- and was worried ...am I defective- I dont KNOW any of these people and NOT one has IT for me...not one...Ben Affleck are you frigging kidding? yuck.....

Now I liked Johnny Depp in Chocolate...sigh....and I love Will Smith in anything....but he is kind of boyish...not Manly enough for me...I want MEN on that list...what the heck...I want someone that takes my beath away...and it has to be the Voice, and some character etched in the face....

I loved the Priest on Lost ( the one that got killed off...he was so amazing...eyes,,,tall and such a beautiful accent...)......Colin Firth....okay George Clooney...hmmm, I need to think of some more.....

( and yeah, the age thing matters...I had a grad student try to pick me up walking my dog...he thought I was younger...and he was late 20's...but yeah all I could think was - shit- he is old enough to be my son- yikes...I am definently NOT a Demi....I could never.....)

how come Kona or John Good were not on the People list ???

Blueberry said...

"Lost" really has had a variety of sexy characters on there, male and female, young and middle-aged. Naveen Andrews (Sayid) is my pick. Then there's John Locke, Desmond...

Kay said...

I'd vote for Johnny Depp. I second the prrr.

I'd add Hugh Jackman to that list. Such a nice guy, great actor, and those abs. Yum.

enigma:I liked Johnny Depp in Chocolate. I just re-read that sentence and it took on a new meaning!
Kay: Hi! Thought you disappeared! Yes, good choice, esp. as Wolverine.

askmen.com (http://www.askmen.com/specials/2007_top_49/) has a list up too, a bit different criteria for being on it... maybe not THAT much different. ;-)
Some interesting candidates on there.
