Happy hump day! Today we have classic hottie Hugh Jackman, who claims this weeks post since he has The Wolverine coming out this weekend. Honestly, I could really care less about Wolverine. But what I do care about is Hugh’s bod when he’s training for Wolverine. Plus, I just adore him, and you ladies must love him, too, since he made it all the way to the Final 4 in this years Hottie Madness!
Shall we list all the reasons to love him? Because that list could go on for a while. Hugh is a real life leading man. The kind of man romance novels are written about. A family man. Not only does he have that irresistible charm, the infectious smile and the sexy accent, but it seems like every candid photo captures a joy that seems to radiate off of him. Whether he’s laughing and playing with his kids, walking his dog, working out, showing off his bod (can’t get enough of those) or being affectionate with his wife, every pic of him is seriously swoonworthy.

This will be brief cause this week is kind of insane, but can we just talk about how FREAKING FABULOUS Claire Danes and Damian Lewis look in the latest issue of Vogue? I am obsessed with these photos by Annie Leibovitz. Maybe that’s because I’m also obsessed with Homeland. And with Annie’s photography. And with Damian. And Claire, who I’ve already professed my love for. Major girl crush. Her hair is beyond amazing, and didn’t she just have a baby? Clearly she’s won the genetic lottery. You know, it’s really a shame they don’t let Claire look this hot on the show, instead of the total and complete mess that defines her character Carrie.

You know what I just realized? Girly Obsessions turned TWO last week! It just kind of came and went totally unrecognized. Oops. Happy belated birthday to my little blog. Where has the time gone?? It’s kind of shocking (or maybe scary) that I’ve had enough obsessions to keep this thing going! But what’s even more shocking is that in all of the 453 posts (including 141 hottie posts), only ONE has been about Ryan Reynolds. I mean, what? So with two movies coming out next week, R.I.P.D. and Turbo, I think it’s time to share the love, don’t you think?
Funny. Charming. Chiseled. (Even his abs have abs.) Handsome. Witty. Unpretentious. This man is the total package. I never realized it, but he has a totally self-deprecating sense of humor. Clearly he doesn’t realize how hot he is. That Blake Lively is one lucky lady! Here are a few tidbits from his Details interview that will make you swoon:

The long awaited moment is here! Dexter, Season 8 (the final season), just began airing on Sunday. Who counted down the days with me? I was thrilled when I heard it was going to premiere in the summer rather than in the fall. I tried explaining my obsession with the show to a coworker:
“He’s a vigilante!” I professed.
“Right, he’s a killer,” she replied.
“Yes but a good killer!”
She looks at me with a frown, “Is there such a thing?”
The show definitely stirs up moral conflict, but viewers love him. Watch a few episodes and I guarantee you will be just as hooked. Michael C. Hall plays the serial killer in the series. How can a serial killer be lovable? Michael finds a way. Without him, I am not sure the show would be as much of a success. He pulls the character off beautifully… portraying Dexter’s desire to live a normal life while showcasing his psychopathic behavior.

I feel like Johnny Depp is getting all the attention around The Lone Ranger premiere next weekend. I mean, it’s hard not to focus all your attention on his ridiculous get-up. And the fact that he’s Johnny Depp. But, let’s take a second to appreciate the man playing the title character of the movie, the Lone Ranger, Armie Hammer.
I didn’t really have a feeling one way or another toward Armie. Sure, he’s attractive. He has that slightly unkempt, boyish appeal. That 5 o’clock shadow that keeps him on the manly side of the pretty spectrum. That casual perfection. But I couldn’t picture him as anything but those douchey Winklevoss twins from The Social Network (he played both). But after seeing him in The Lone Ranger trailer, where he is looking very rugged and very sexy, I did a little more research. And I’ve learned that there are, in fact, a lot of things to love about Armie:

My name is Jenn, wife of 7 years and mother of an adorable 1-year-old baby girl. Ashley and I went to grade school together. She moved away but I remained in our hometown in the wonderful state of Maryland. In fact, my husband and I purchased my childhood home and spent the past 4 years completely renovating it. Home décor is my primary obsession but I also love to gab to my friends about all things girly – celebrities, favorite makeup products, fashion, books… I am so incredibly excited that Ashley is allowing me to contribute to this blog. As a long time reader of GirlyObsessions, I often found myself exclaiming at the computer screen when I had similar views. I am looking forward to sharing my obsessions with you. So…
Does anyone remember these kids?
The New Kids On The Block DOMINATED the late 80s/early 90s. I know I’m not alone when I say that I was completely OBSESSED with these five individuals. Every girl I knew had a favorite and we were going to marry that person (we were DEAD serious!). Jordan was mine and I could not associate with anyone else who liked him too. (My best friend was a Joey fan, PHEW). I had shirts, pins, posters, lunch boxes…you name it. If they made it, I owned it. As their fan base aged, our taste in music changed and unfortunately, the band disassembled in the mid-90s.
Fast forward to today. NKOTB reunited and is currently on tour with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. I was able to go to the concert as part of a bachelorette party for a college roommate of mine. To be honest, I wasn’t really THAT excited about it. I mean, the songs bring back so many memories but these guys have to be old right? They probably can’t even dance that well! I went to this concert with LOW expectations and was pleasantly surprised when I saw this:

After seeing World War Z previews all over my TV, I started wondering why I’ve never featured Brad Pitt. I had a major crush on him during his A River Runs Through It and Legends days (and his Meet Joe Black, Fight Club and Ocean’s Eleven days…), but his star fell a bit for me after his affair with Angelina and divorce from Jennifer. It was just all very scandalous. And then the bad facial hair started happening. But I was obsessed with him for the better part of two decades. I mean, he’s insanely hot, so I should try not hold a few not-so-hot years against him, right?. Because I know that underneath all the variations of facial hair is that youthful golden boy I once loved.
So while reminiscing about the Days of Hot Brad Pitt, I decided to just chronicle the hotness in a timeline. What was your fave moment in Brad Pitt Hotness History?

It’s been a month since my last post. That’s almost unforgivable. I apologize for the unexpected and extended blogging hiatus. I guess I should consider myself lucky that I like my job (you know, the one that pays the bills), but I do get pissed at it when it takes time away from the other things I enjoy, like blogging. Anyways, enough about me. It’s Hump Day Hottie, and I’m back with one of the hottest guys (if not currently THE hottest) in Hollywood: Henry Cavill.
I’ve already done a few posts on Henry, so I don’t know what I can say that hasn’t already been said. I’m so excited to see Man of Steel. Honestly, I don’t even care about the plot (I’ve actually never seen any Superman movies or TV shows, so it’s all new to me). All I care about is Henry and his total and complete hotness. Which includes his muscles. And his blue eyes. And his curly hair, chiseled cheekbones and chin dimple. And major props to whoever designed his costume – it really shows off all of Henry’s…impressive assets.

Hi everyone! I’m back from vacation and trying to catch up on posts. I wanted to get this post ready before I left, but it didn’t happen. So even though it’s a few days late, I have to share my love for Leo since, as you know, he’s one of my all time faves. OK, so I haven’t actually seen Gatsby yet since I was traveling the day it came out and was busy all weekend, so I won’t get to see it until this weekend. But it doesn’t matter. It’s Leo. And Baz Luhrmann. And all kinds of glitzy, over-the-top, 1920′s fabulousness, so I know I’ll LOVE it.
So that’s how I ended up doing some Gatsby Math. Because Leo plus anything is generally awesome. And really, hot guy math is the only kind worth doing. It also allowed me to Google some 20′s slang to use where appropriate. Like I really wanted to use the phrase elephant’s adenoids instead of bee’s knees, but I didn’t think anyone would get it. (Apparently all of the following can be used in place of the well-known nonsense catchphrase: elephant’s adenoids, cat’s meow, ant’s pants, tiger’s spots, bullfrog’s beard, caterpillar’s kimono, turtle’s neck, duck’s quack, duck’s nuts, monkey’s eyebrows, gnat’s elbows, oyster’s earrings, snake’s hips, kipper’s knickers, clam’s garter, eel’s ankle, leopard’s stripes, tadpole’s teddies, sardine’s whiskers, canary’s tusks, pig’s wings, cuckoo’s chin, and butterfly’s book.)
Anyways, happy hump day! I hope put your new and improved math skills to use!

I need to apologize for the lack of posts lately. Work has been crazy. Life in general has been crazy. And I leave for vacation tonight, so I’ll be on blogging hiatus until the end of next week. But I promise to try to get back on a regular posting schedule when I return. That being said, I couldn’t leave without a hottie post! And today we have one of my faves: Robert Downey, Jr. He’s already been featured on the blog, but I mean, there’s enough hotness for another post (or several), don’t ya think?
My obsession with RDJr started in 1994 with Only You. I freaking ADORE that movie. Actually, 1994 seemed to be a pivotal obsession-forming year – Billie Joe, Christian Bale, Leo, etc. But flash forward to 2013, and RDJr is pretty much the coolest guy in Hollywood. And he plays one of the coolest superheros. I’m not a huge comic book movie fan, but I do love RDJr as Tony Stark/Iron Man. Well, I also love CB as Batman. And Henry Cavill as Superman. (I know it’s not out yet, but it’s Henry, so I’ll love it. Guaranteed.) Sorry, I’m all over the place, this post is supposed to be about RDJr. I don’t need to list everything I love about him. There’s a lot to love and I’ve done that already. But the man exudes confidence. Charming, eccentric confidence.
