Yep, it's my list o' Hotties. Many of them will not come as a surprise...


My Purrsonal Hotlist, in no particular order:

1. Dominic Purcell
2. Wentworth Miller
3. Jensen Ackles (increases in direct proportion to proximity to Jared Padalecki)
4. Tom Welling
5. Orlando Bloom
6. Eric Bana
7. Taye Diggs
8. Mario Van Peebles
9. George Clooney
10. Pierce Brosnan (sans beard)
11. Josh Hollaway
12. Naveen Andrews
13. John Lone (no idea what he looks like now, but can't be that different)
14. Hugh Jackman
15. Hugh Grant
16. Brad Pitt (sorry)
17. Nathan Fillion
18. Goran Visnjic
19. Matthew McConaughey (sorry)
20. Johnny Depp.

Beautiful to look at, but not "hot" to me
1. Orlando as Legolas
2. Daniel Dae Kim (nearly perfect in every possible way)
3. Siddig el Fadil (Alexander Siddig). Those.Eyes.

Hotties in Past Contexts
1. Hart Bochner, "Apartment Zero" timeframe. Fuck.Me.
2. Willem Dafoe, "Plattoon" timeframe.
3. Omar Sharif, "Laurence of Arabia" timeframe. *God*. Peter Who?
4. Rupert Everett, "Another Country" or "My Best Friend's Wedding" timeframe (although I'd have to be a guy, or else he'd kick me to the curb)


You can see that PrisonBreak wins out big. And that, whatever the artistic details, "Troy" wins the Trifecta for me!


Now's the part where I tag 5 6 other people.

You know, I tried this one, but I kept coming back to "How about I dump all the other guys and instead have sex with Khan from Deewar 20 times over? (he can bring his little sidekick if he wants to. And Big B can watch.)

I have to say though my crushes are like 90% personality based (or I have a very short time window in which I find them hot). Meaning that I'm more attracted to the character than the guy.

So it's like

Vin Diesel in Riddick or Fast and the Furious but not XXX.
Russel Crowe in Gladiator but not everything else.
Sanjay Dutt in Deewar, Musafir, Mission Kashmir and Khalnayak.
Old Sean Connery, but not young Sean Connery.
Wesley Snipes in Blade.

The worst part? For the most parts it's like scruffy badguy types. I don't have a single "Pretty Boy", because while I fangirl over them, everytime I ask myself "Do I wanna do 'em?" my mind goes "Naaaaaaw".

Uh-oh. Kind of half joking. I have a sister who is attracted to bad-boy types, and has twice married men with minor drug problems (which bloom into more later) and who spend money like water and cheat on her. Nice, good-looking men who are athletic and upbeat and adaptable... bore her. Gah! She is doomed.

Now, if this is just the lust-list but doesn't apply to RL, then no problem. Because in RL, I totally avoid "charmers" and bad-boy types, and instead am fatally attracted to sweet men. Thank goodness I found one to keep!

The character vs. actor thing is funny. Sam Winchester? Not hot. Jared Padalecki doing the big grin? So hot!

Willem Dafoe? Hot for no damn good reason. Very intense. Someone, alasyzod I think, says he's slated to be in a movie with Peter Stormare. Explodo-lust! Must see.

Read those drabbles yet? Or read & didn't like them? These are the slashy ones-- you already read the Gen ones.

I need to check out more of your East Indian hotties, because my list was awfully Hollywood focused. We don't see many of the subtitled movies these days, so I'm missing out on the multinational range of sexiness.

Can't stand bad boys in real life. In real life I'm all about the cuddly teddy bear types.

Didn't get around reading them yet. Spend most of yesterday making the BW video clips and went to bed early and then got up early for baby sitting duty. I'm actually just back for lunch and then go right back at it. I will get around reading them eventually though ;D

because my list was awfully Hollywood focused.

I was more horrified that I came up only with two black guys (50 Cent and Blade). I don't think I'm quite ready to but Adebisi in there (though he is hot, but that's too scary even for my taste ;D) Oh well, at least I have all these Indian actors for some exotism ;D

I need to check out more of your East Indian hotties

Most Indian actors are ... weird looking (like they have a tendency towards huge noses). The most attractive thing about them is their over the top behavior or their intensity (depending on whether you are talking romantic role actor or drama/villain type actors). But, the Bollywood actors are still heaps over the South Indian Actors (Telegu and Tamil cinema) where butt ugly mustaches are still a sign of virility, apparently.


The most traditionally beautiful actors are usually actors turned models (the best of the bunch being
John Abraham:


Followed by
Arjun Rampal.


There is also Hrithik Roshan who is like the penultimate happy, glowing, tall, muscular sunny boy. He doesn't really do anything for me physically, but he just radiates optimism.


Personally, I kinda like Emraan Hashmi as far as cutie boys go :)


Saif Ali Khan is another actor who probably fits better into the western beauty ideal. He usually plays the rich and spoilt, but funny one.


A guy who never stops being hot in my eyes is Amitabh Bachchan who is like their version of Sean Connery. And he is like really, really, really tall.


Thank God for us, he also has a son who is just as tall, Abhishek Bachchan.

Err and this actually doesn't cover most of my favorites over there :)

Ooh, ooh-- the good and beloved aunt! My heart longs for you, you beautiful, mythical creature!

Except, except... Navdeep and Madhavan and Dhanush and Allu Arjun. All so TOTALLY my type. Guh!

I'm editing my list of "Hotties from the past," because Omar Sharif must totally be on it.

And John Abraham and Arjun Rampal...*MeltMeltMelt*

Really, Brown hair and brown eyes is a fatal combination for me. *God*

Thanks for the gorgeous pics!

;p My sister in law occasionally parades me in front of her friends to incite their jealousy ;D

Oh yes. I have seen like his most recent film, Monsieur Ibrahim and the Flowers of the Quran and he is still hot (potentially hotter because I have a thing for old men with beards, the Sean Connery/Amitabh Bachchen type).

Except, except... Navdeep and Madhavan and Dhanush and Allu Arjun. All so TOTALLY my type. Guh!

Hehe, I haven't seen too many of the South Indian movies (mostly because they are hard to get with subtitles). But I do like that they often have their guys slightly scruffy. Plus, Bollywood is too ruled by older actors (considering that Sharukh, Salman and Aamir Khan all turned 40 this year and all their runner ups are in their late 30s as well). The South seems to have much more promising YOUNG talent.

And John Abraham and Arjun Rampal...*MeltMeltMelt*

Seen anything of theirs? dangermousie is definitively the authority on everything them.

I liked John best in Dhoom which is a fast paced "Fast and The Furious" type of story only with motor cycles and about a big heist. He is mostly famous for his sensual sizzle flicks like Jism and Paap, but both were a bit on the boring side for me (there is lots and lots of sexy shirtless John though). Another good one is Karam (I plan to share screen captures of it eventually, since it is a gorgeously, very artistically shot movie and it features Priyanka) but it's kind of atypical since it's more a somber artistic violence flick about a hired killer doing his infamous last job.

He is also supposed to be really good in Water which is an art house movie about the burning of widows. It premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.

Arjun I have seen in *a lot* less. I mainly remember Dil Ka Rishta, which I liked for its soap opera appeal (featuring plot points such as amnesia), but many other people dislike it for the very same reason. I thought it was just a nice and rather pretty movie. Plus, like the only time I found Aishwarya Rai likable in anything.

The Sexy 20

Hey, here ya go. If I was lucky enough to land one... I would love them, bang them, and moan their names over and over.

Thanks! Those were great. You had several that were thisclose to making my list, and the guy you showed pictures of was.... shockifying. Gorgeous!
