The post otherwise known as There-Are-Empty-Spots-In-The-Hottie-Madness-Bracket-So-Let’s-Fill-Em-Up. In all seriousness, these guys are all relevant, and some have never been featured, so they definitely need to be in this year’s tournament! Just a reminder, the Oscars are this Sunday, March 2nd, with coverage starting at 7pm. And will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres for the second time, which I’m super excited about! Love her.
Leonardo DiCaprio | Best Actor, The Wolf of Wall Street
I don’t need to go on and on about Leo. He’s been featured a few times on the blog and it’s no secret that he is one of my absolute faves, if not my most favorite. A crush that’s been going strong since 1993. I know there are a lot of mixed feelings about The Wolf of Wall Street, but I loved it. I loved him in it. But then again, I love everything with Leo. I can go on and on about how he’s been snubbed too many times, but I won’t. He’s up against some tough competition this year, but obviously, I want him to win.

Somehow almost three years have passed without a John Krasinski hottie post. He’s made a few small appearances, mainly beside his equally hot wife, Emily Blunt, but has never had a fully dedicated post. Even though he has no movies or shows or whatever to promote right now, there is nothing wrong with just promoting his hotness. And celebrating the fact that he is a new dad! John and Emily welcomed their daughter Hazel into the world on Sunday.
As a huge fan of The Office, I’ve loved John since 2005, when he debuted as the somewhat unkempt office prankster and hopeless romantic, Jim Halpert. I don’t know anyone who didn’t love Jim, and while I know Jim is just a character, I want to believe his not that dissimilar to John himself. John has a great sense of humor. He’s tall. Handsome. Effortlessly charming and has a killer smile. Did you ever see Leatherheads? I kind of think of John as a young George Clooney, but with a wife. They both have a similar charm and sense of humor, they both love to play practical jokes and they both get more attractive with age. John even got married at George’s Italian villa. I’ve also loved John in his other movies like It’s Complicated, Something Borrowed and even License to Wed. I love that he lip synced to a Katy Perry song with Jimmy Fallon (it’s a MUST WATCH). I love the fact that he’s smart (graduated from Brown) and wanted to be an English teacher so he could wear “corduroy jackets with patches on the side.” And beyond all that, he seems like the perfect husband. An actual romantic, not just playing one on TV. Like I want to snuggle right into the middle of his marriage.

I’m not usually awake for late-night TV, but when I am, my talk show host of choice is definitely Jimmy Fallon. And I’m thrilled he’s making the jump from late late-night to “primetime” late-night, taking over Jay Leno’s spot on The Tonight Show starting next week. I think Jimmy is one of those cases where an awesome personality can make someone so much hotter. Don’t get me wrong, Jimmy has a cute foundation. I mean, the man is adorable. Ridiculously excited and happy, all the time. He seems like the most fun-loving guy on TV. Or maybe in life. The kind of guy you want to be your bestie. But if you layer the cute with Jimmy’s universal appeal, his charm, his joy, his infectious smile…that’s what makes him hot.
The guy can do it all: sing, dance, play guitar, act, do countless impersonations (did anyone hear his bit on the Howard Stern Birthday Bash?). And he does do it all, and will say yes to anything for a laugh, including cracking up during his sketches, which I find endearing. ”Definitely a comedy foul. Lorne didn’t like it. I didn’t like it. But the sketches I laughed in became popular. At the end, it was like the audience was waiting. The studio started to shake. Like an earthquake. I couldn’t hold it in anymore. Torture.”

It’s been far too long since Matt Damon has graced this blog with his presence. Like two years too long. So with his new movie, The Monuments Men, coming out this weekend, I think it’s time we get another look at that handsome, smiling face of his. Is anyone looking forward to seeing The Monuments Men? I know I am! It’s based on the true story of a World War II platoon who were tasked by FDR to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves. I love that it’s a war movie about art. Totally into that! And it stars another fave hottie, George Clooney, who actually shared a post with Matt a few years ago.
Since I’ve already listed many of the reasons I adore Matt in my last post, all of which are still true, I’ll just add a few more things. And one fun fact.

I’ve mentioned this before, but 1994 was a pivotal year in my life. It was the year of Dookie, Reality Bites and My So-Called Life. And it was the year of forming lifelong hottie-obsessions, like Billie Joe, Christian, Leo, and of course, one Jordan Catalano. It didn’t matter that he was basically illiterate. He could sing Ramones covers and was the hottest leaner on TV.
Fast-forward 20 years (TWENTY YEARS!!!), and I’m still obsessed with all of these guys. And maybe it’s because I’m also 20 years older, but they all still look the same to me. However, no one has
drunk chugged more from the fountain of youth than Jared Leto. He is just agelessly and exceptionally hot. And it would make sense that Jared would get nominated for an Oscar for playing a transgender character. I mean, he has to be the prettiest man in Hollywood. Right? It doesn’t matter if he has long hair or short, is bearded or clean-shaven, is skinny or ripped. His quirky, rock god status allows him to get away with guyliner and ombré hair, all of which just enhances his beauty. I know it might be emasculating to call a man beautiful, but he is. He’s just…pretty. Damn. Hot. With those soul-piercing blue eyes and that perfect smile. And according to this one interviewer (which I believe is the general perception of Jared), he is incredibly charming and is a “phenomenally gifted flirt.”

Can we just talk about the hotness that is Josh Holloway? As a devout Lost fan, I was really missing my weekly dose of Sawyer. So I’m thrilled that Josh has come back into my living room in his new series, Intelligence, as a more clean-cut, James-Bond-ish version of himself. Although, I have yet to actually watch the show since I’m still playing catch up on fall TV! But from what I’ve heard, it’s really good, so I’m excited for him. And for me. Seriously, Monday nights never looked so good! The man just oozes sex. That raspy voice. The laid back attitude. The messy hair. The perfect teeth and the dimples. Oh, and of course, THE BOD! There were some rumors swirling of Josh playing Aquaman in the Man of Steel sequel. Totally on board with that! No man looks hotter when wet. (As evident in the photos below.)

I recently went on a totally random Colin Firth/Pride & Prejudice binge. It started with catching both Bridget Jones movies back to back on TV. Once the Colin Firth (and Hugh Grant) spark was ignited, I moved on to Love Actually. Then I rummaged through my DVD’s to find the 1995 BBC version of Pride & Prejudice, which then led to watching the 2005 version. (He’s no Colin Firth, but I do kind of love Matthew Macfadyen as Mr. Darcy). Then I went back and read the book, which I haven’t done in years, and kind of made me want to start the binge all over again. The binge also left me wondering why I’ve never done a hottie post about Colin Firth. So here it is…

I interrupt the gift-posting-frenzy to bring you a hottie. A long overdue hottie. Rupert Friend. You may recognize him as black ops agent Peter Quinn from Homeland. Or you may recognize him from his period dramas, like Pride & Prejudice and The Young Victoria. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice, but I didn’t realize until just last week that it was Rupert who played Mr. Wickham!! You would have thought those cheekbones would have stuck with me. Well, they did, but I just never knew they were the same person. I also never realized that Quinn is a Brit in real life. Where the hell have I been? (Sidenote: Rupert actually dated P&P co-star Keira Knightly for like five years.)
Homeland fans, how obsessed are you with Peter Quinn this season? He has turned a corner, going from guest star to series regular, and from a not-so-liked (or maybe just misunderstood?) character to one that I adore. Like I’m not even mad at him that he shot Carrie. And for fans of Rupert’s, do you prefer him as the romantic Mr. Wickham or the edgy and mysterious Peter Quinn? Or maybe you prefer him as a young Johnny Depp look-alike? (Check out the photo in the bottom right.) Actually, seeing what Rupert has done with the character of Peter, I think he would have worked as Mr. Darcy. Although no one will ever compare to Colin Firth…

I’ve been busy working on this years Girly Gift Guide, and therefore slacking on posts, but I can’t let this week go by with a tribute to the hotties of The Hunger Games. Although it was a tough choice between Hunger Games or People’s Sexiest Man Alive, Adam Levine. But I’m just too excited about the premiere of Catching Fire, so Adam, and the rest of the sexy men on the list, will have to wait. Are you guys as excited as I am? It seems like just yesterday that I was recapping the hotties in the first movie, and I remember feeling like it was an eternity until Catching Fire came out. But now it’s here and this weekend can’t come soon enough! The movie is getting great reviews, which as a fan of the books, makes me even more excited. But let’s take a look at the main reason you’ll want to see this movie: all the hotness. (I apologize in advance if I left out your fave. I can only do so much.)
Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen
What can I say about JLaw that hasn’t already been been said? I love her. Everyone loves her. Yes, she’s gorgeous. But she’s also real. And brutally honest. And her lack of filter is what I love most about her. She is a sound-byte machine. I literally want to share every single thing she has ever said, but that would be the longest post ever, so I’ll just share a few recent faves. (You can check out more quotes here and here and here and here and here…) On her Catching Fire wetsuit: “I was surprised at how little camel toe problem there was.” On praise for her new haircut: ”I’m like a cat back from the groomer’s, where I’m so insecure. I need as much positive reinforcement as I can get.” On her acting style: “No, I’m not method at all. As soon as they call ‘cut,’ I’m thinking about food and moving on.” On pressure to be thin: “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself.’ ” On what she’d do with more free time: “I would spend more time on the couch, less time showering. If I don’t have anything to do all day, I might not put my pants on.” On young girls struggling with body image: ”Screw those people. If you don’t look like an airbrushed model …you have to look past it. You look how you look. What are you going to do, be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.” See, I could go on forever.

I know I’m totally late to the game on this one, but did you guys see The White Queen? Originally broadcast on BBC One, it premiered in the US back in August on Starz. I finally got around to watching the first episode, which you can watch online for free, and I loved it! Starz is airing an encore of the miniseries starting tonight, so my DVR is set. It’s based on Philippa Gregory’s novels about the Wars of the Roses (she also wrote The Other Boleyn Girl), and is a bit Downton Abbey meets Game of Thrones meets The Tudors. All good things. And it stars one very handsome Max Irons as King Edward IV. And lucky for us, as Max said, ”the Starz cut contains breasts and buttocks. The BBC cut doesn’t.” Thank you, Starz.
You may also recognize Max from Red Riding Hood and The Host. Even though I couldn’t get through that book, I still wanted to see the movie. Mainly because of Max’s appeal. And now that the obsession is in full swing, I think I’ll be adding both to the Netflix queue!
Max, born Maximilian Paul Diarmuid Irons, is the son of actors Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack. Well done, Jeremy! Some of these Hollywood legends are producing some really attractive children. (Like Scott Eastwood, who definitely needs his own hottie post.) And even though he has a famous lineage, he’s had to support himself. His parents cut him off financially at 18. A bit of tough love, but he’s made his own way, which I totally admire.
