It’s time for one of those shallow posts that has no meaning and is just an excuse to write a list and post some pictures. Everyone’s all over Channing Tatum at the minute and the other pretty boys that everyone seems to love but not me. Blessed with a mind of my own I have my own list of who I think are the most attractive men in the media and I need an excuse for a bit of pathetic fun so here goes!
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that knows me. Usually it’s one of the first things people learn about me when we first meet. What’s there to say? His charisma, his sense of humour just…everything, is perfect. That and he’s drop dead gorgeous of course. There’s just something about him that not many people have, I reckon he could walk into any room and make it go silent without having to do anything.
Anyone familiar with the film Catfish will know the story and will probably know Nev, the presenter of the TV show (who is also rather gorgeous). Max is his ‘filmmaker buddy’ and he helps create the TV show, which basically sets out to help people in online relationships meet the person they’re in love with and make sure they’re the real deal. I often get very distracted staring at Max throughout the TV show (which is one of my favourite shows). That silver hair…
His surname might be a nightmare to spell but his looks more than make up for it. Known as playing the ripped Alcide, werewolf friend of Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood, Joe Manganiello is gorgeous beyond words, especially with short hair (in my opinion!)
His music video might have caused outrage for being ‘sexist’ but there’s no denying that Robin Thicke is hot. I was too mesmerised by his beautiful eyes all the way through the Blurred Lines video to even take any notice of the naked women dancing around him. It’s all about the charisma, and this guy really knows how to carry himself! And who doesn’t love a man that looks good in a suit and sunglasses?
The Wolverine never used to be my cup of tea, but Hugh Jackman parading around semi naked throughout the entire film swung it for me. It’s those sideburns and the cute flicked up hair that does it.
Don’t judge me. I may have weird taste in men but I’m not afraid to admit it. There’s something about Kim Coates, particularly as Tig in Sons of Anarchy, that I find incredibly attractive. I guess it might be charisma again! Damn, charisma has a lot to answer for.
I fell in love with Stephen Moyer the moment I started watching True Blood. I loved the character of Bill from reading the books and the same was true of the show, and it helps that Moyer is incredibly handsome too He did start to piss me off from about season 4 of True Blood onwards but nevertheless I can appreciate his good looks. Before it went to pot his fake Southern American accent was pretty dreamy too.
Again this is through my love of True Blood, as soon as he cut his stupid long hair off I was smitten. Again it’s that damn charisma, even when he’s not playing sexy Viking vampire Eric there’s something about the way he talks that’s really attractive.
I never saw the Daniel Craig thing when he first became James Bond, I don’t like too much muscle and his bulky build squeezed into those little blue speedos was more grotesque than attractive to me. But seeing him in Enduring Love, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Layer Cake (oh my god I love that film!), Dream House and many other not-007-related films completely changed my opinion.
There’s something about men with southern American accents that sing, wear cowboy hats and tight jeans and can play the guitar that gets me hot under the collar, and Tim McGraw is one of the most beautiful men I’ve ever seen.
Honourable Mention: Jon Hamm. Mmm…hamm
