The Sexiest Man Alive

OK, it’s official. People magazine has chosen its Sexiest Man Alive and the winner is...Hugh Jackman. Not a bad choice at all as evidenced by his pictures. However, I would suggest that Hugh is not your typical hunk. Yeah, he’s got the muscles (did he always have those or are they a recent acquisition?), but he has a goofy quality about him as well. I guess goofy can be sexy.

I’m sure women around the country are debating Hugh’s elevation to Sexiest Man Alive (yeah, well we need something to take our minds off of the plunging stock market and auto company bail-outs), and wondering how their favorites didn't achieve this pinnacle of sexiness. Daniel Craig, anyone?

What do you think makes a man sexy? And I mean at first glance in the first visceral moment of “oh, wow!” - none of this “he has a great sense of humor” crap!

And while you’re thinking on it, enjoy People’s 100 Sexy Men in a Minute.
Can you spot your favorite man candy? Maybe not, but it's sure fun trying.

Hi Carol,

Great post. I didn't see Mark Harmon on there. Did I miss him. They did have some others that I liked.

The eyes grab me first unless I'm too far away to see them, then it's the stance. The way they hold themselves gets my attention.


Juliet Burns said...

Hey carol, great pics! I loves me some man candy. Daniel Craig, Hugh, Gerard, and two of my favorites, Welsh acotr Christian Bale, and Another Aussie, Eric Bana! Yum!

Sandy, I didn't see Mark Harmon, but then I missed a lot of them. I'll never forget Mark's portrayal of Ted Bundy in that TV movie - chilling.

Juliet, were Gerard, Christian, and Eric in the video? I'll have to slow that down and study it more closely - LOL The first are Matt Damon, Becks (mmm), McElvoy, Zach Efron (I have adolescent boys), Hugh, who is that 7th guy after Shia LaBouef (sp?)- the dark and dangerous looking one? Wow!

Leigh Court said...

GAK! Where's Pierce Brosnan?!?


Carol Ericson said...

Leigh, I think Pierce is in the video, toward the end. I can't watch it again, darn it, because I'm at work right now. Did you see him The Matador? Great performance!

Anne Rainey said...

I think it's his smile that does it for me. And his sexy voice. Also his eyes...okay, he's got it all, as far as I'm concerned. LOL

Carol Ericson said...

Leigh, isn't that Pierce with his arm out of the car window shortly after George Clooney (honestly, I can't stand George - so smarmy - must put me in the .001% of women!)

Hi, Carol --

It's all about the eyes for me. Something about the way a guy makes and holds eye contact. Soooo sexylicious. Also, the way he conducts himself when in my presence and the presence of other women. If he knows how to exude his charm and remain confident in any/all situations without being overtly sexual or making inappropriate comments or gestures. The former is sexy, the latter sleazy no matter how hot his physical appearance LOL

Happy holidays to you and yours,

I'm an arms and hands gal! Those are the first things I notice on a guy.

Carol Ericson said...

Shawna, I think when a man is interested in you and makes and holds eye contact, there's nothing sexier!

Lexi, then you must like that first picture of Hugh with those "huge" arms! I have to admit, I like him with the longer hair.

Nicole North said...

Wonderful post! I love Hugh Jackman! What makes a man sexy at first glance? First, his eyes! Then his hair, his general body shape, whether he has broad shoulders, etc. A nice smile is important too.

Eliza Knight said...

OMG! Daniel Craig...shudder...sooooo hot!!! Did you see Casino Royale when he comes out of the water, I fell off the couch literally.

I thought Hugh Jackman was hot, but certainly not the sexiest...I'll have to think about that.

For me the sexiest thing about a man is his eyes, and if they smolder when he looks at me and makes me feel like one hot POA, then he's definitely got me hooked. After that, personality, and hot bod. That's in person (except I've been married for 8 its pretty much in my own house, lol) As far as celebrities, steamy bedroom eyes, hot bods and a real alpha male personality on screen mixed with caring man.

Okay, very long winded. Love your blog!

Eliza, I've heard DC is smokin' hot in Quantum of Solace. Can't wait to see it. Thanks for dropping by!
