We’ve made it to the end of Hottie Madness 2014! Four weeks. 64 hotties. And after a few close calls, major upsets and some intense battles, we’re left with one winner. I present you with the Official Hottie of 2014: Henry Cavill.
Before we get into the details, I just want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who voted! As always, I appreciate all the participation and support. And it’s nice to see that I’m not the only one obsessed with all these hotties. These guys are lucky to have such loyal fans. (More on that in a minute…)

We’ve made it to the Championship Game in Hottie Madness 2014! We started with 64 hotties and now we’re down to two! The battle between Tudors co-stars Henry Cavill and Jonathan Rhys Meyers was intense. Both have insanely loyal fans and I hated to see either one have to lose, but Henry’s fans pushed him to the win. Obviously I’m a huge fan of ALL the hotties in this bracket, but in honor of JRM’s hotness and seriously awesome fans, I have something special planned for him on Wednesday when the Official Hottie is revealed!
You know what’s weird? Last year’s final was a seven seed vs a top seed, with the seven seed (David Gandy) taking the win. I wonder if history will repeat itself? Just a reminder, voting is blocked by IP address and cookie to keep things as fair as possible. This time I’m sharing a collection of images of each hottie to help with the voting. Good luck to our finalists and may the hottest hottie win!
Voting for this bracket ends Tuesday, April 8th at 8 PM EST.
(7) Johnny Depp vs (1) Henry Cavill
Johnny staged a small upset over six seed Jake Gyllenhaal, and won with 59.35% of the vote. It was back and forth all weekend between Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Henry Cavill, but in the end Henry’s fans gave him the edge and he won with 52.51% of the vote. I feel like everywhere I look lately, I’m see Johnny Depp. Recently engaged. New movie coming out. He’s clearly on a run! But Henry’s fans have been incredibly loyal and very active. So in the battle of these two hotties, will Henry’s fans remain strong, or will Johnny pull off an upset?
Good luck to our final hotties and thanks so much for voting! Check back on Wednesday to see who is crowed the Official Hottie!

We’ve reached the Final Four of Hottie Madness 2014, where the top guys from each bracket have moved on to compete against each other, and who could have predicted this turnout? Henry Cavill is the only top seed remaining, and he’s facing his Tudors costar, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, whose fate last round was a little shaky. (One reader commented on the last photo of him not being recent. Just to clarify, it was from a recent W photo shoot, so rest assured that JRM definitely still has his looks!) And in the top half of the bracket, we’ve ended up somewhere in the middle.
The winners of the Final Four will compete against each other for the title of Official Hottie, so who’s it going to be?

(7) Johnny Depp vs (6) Jake Gyllenhaal
I have to say, I didn’t expect Johnny to still be hanging in this competition, but he took out top seed Charlie Hunnam with 53% of the vote. And Jake Gyllenhaal won over top seed Justin Timberlake with 55%. Who will win this battle of the middle to move on to the Championship? I can’t even begin to predict which way the votes will go! Johnny has a new movie coming out next week, so maybe he’s more top of mind? And let’s not forget the man is 50. FIFTY. I mean, what? Looking good, Jonny.

Eight more hotties were eliminated as we head into the Elite 8 of Hottie Madness 2014! After to a last minute push to secure Charlie Hunnam’s spot, three top seeds are still in the tourney. And our one remaining
Cinderella Prince Charming story, eleven seed Jonathan Rhys Meyers, is still going strong. For those of you who don’t understand why, read this recent W article. He’s grouped amongst the top social media celebs with a huge Twitter following, along with last year’s winner David Gandy. (Thanks to W for the photos of hotties in bed.)

(1) Charlie Hunnam vs (7) Johnny Depp
Colin Firth was in the lead until late yesterday when Charlie Hunnam took the win with 53% of the vote. And Johnny Depp took out Orlando Bloom with 56%. Johnny is having a good week with his recent engagement, but can he ride that high to a victory over Charlie?

The voting is getting tough! After eliminating 48 hotties, we’ve made it to the Sweet 16 of Hottie Madness 2014! There were A LOT of intense battles and a few upsets in Round 2. All of the top seeds are still in the tourney, and we do have some potential Cinderella stories developing (or should we call them Prince Charming’s?). I tried to choose photos that were similar to put the hotties on a more level playing field. Click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos.

(1) Charlie Hunnam vs (4) Colin Firth
Charlie had a fairly easy win over Mark Wahlberg with 62% of the vote, and as much as I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt, I’m thrilled to see that Colin took the win with 61%. Here we have another battle of the Brits, but can a relative newbie compete with our beloved Mr. Darcy?

After a relatively drama-free Round 1 (except one country-themed upset), we’ve made it to Round 2 of the Drool bracket in Hottie Madness 2014. Not to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to put the hotties on a more level playing field. Click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos. Click here for more details and to download the bracket.
(1) Henry Cavill vs (8) Ian Somerhalder
The biggest win of the tourney so far was Henry Cavill over Alan Ritchson, with 92% of the vote. But Ian’s victory over Jimmy Fallon (77%) was just as impressive. This is a tough choice between two supernatural hotties. Superman vs vampire. Sexy chiseled cheekbones vs THE SMOLDER. They both have hot bods, so that’s no help. I don’t envy anyone who has to make this choice, including myself.

Time to vote for who you drool over most in Round 1 of Hottie Madness 2014! Up next, the Drool bracket. Don’t forget, there is still time to vote in the Swoon and Crush brackets! I don’t want to sway votes, but I shared a few thoughts on each matchup, and I tried to choose photos that were similar to each to put the hotties on a more level playing field. Somehow all the music show judges ended up in this bracket. You can click on the names/links for the full post and cast your vote in each box below the photos.

(1) Henry Cavill vs (16) Alan Ritchson
I think Henry is the hottest guy on the planet. Seriously. So hot. I can’t stop looking at him. But when I put these pics side by side, Alan kinda gives him a run for his money. Kinda…

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.

Sorry that I’ve totally slacked on hottie posts (and all posts for that matter) for the past few weeks. It’s not like me. I actually started this post two weeks ago, but I’ve been swamped at work and busy trying to get Christmas stuff done, so the blog has taken a back seat. And I am taking next week off from blogging to enjoy the holiday and recharge my batteries, and I’ll be back in full force in the new year.
But I do hate to see weeks go by with no hotties, so I’m going to try to make up for it. A lot of magazines right now are coming out with their Entertainers/Men of the Year issues (GQ, EW, Details), so I thought I’d recap some of my picks for Hotties of the Year 2012. Some are new to the blog, and some have already been featured, but you can never have too much hotness, right?
It was so hard to narrow down all the hotties of the year into a small list, so I’m sorry if I’ve left out your faves!! Who would be your top hottie of 2012?
Sexiest Stripper: Channing Tatum
Who knew a movie about male strippers would be so successful? (Well, I could have told you that…) It’s hard to choose just one hottie from a movie full of them, but Channing brings the sexy in Magic Mike. Those dance moves? Damn. He clearly had a good year, also starring in The Vow and 21 Jump Street, and was named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. And how can you not love a man, when asked what super power he wishes he had, answers, “To be able to read my wife’s mind.” Swoon! (And we recently found out he’s going to be a
DILF daddy, so congrats Channing and Jenna!)
Super Hotties: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Christian Bale and Henry Cavill
I freaking love, LOVE, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. So much so that I may have been the only person to see Premium Rush. And he was so great in The Dark Knight Rises as a super-hero sidekick to my other love, Christian Bale. I’m sad to see CB’s part of the franchise end, but I seriously hope they continue with JG-L as Robin. Plus you gotta love a guy who channels his inner stripper for a very sexy Magic Mike tribute on SNL. And even though Man of Steel isn’t out until next summer (ugh), Henry Cavill (and his package) has been getting a lot of well-deserved attention!
Red-headed British Hotties: Eddie Redmayne and Damian Lewis
I mentioned this in my Claire Danes post, but I’m completely obsessed with Homeland, including its friendly neighborhood terrorist and Emmy-award-winning star, Damian Lewis. I had no idea he was a “pesky Brit” until he accepted his award, and with a typical British sense of humor, said: “I don’t really believe in judging art, but I showed up just in case.” I’m completely enamored with him and the character he plays. And I’ve already blogged about my love for Eddie Redmayne, so I’m thrilled to see his stylish, perfectly coiffed self all over the place promoting Les Mis. Just one more reason I can’t wait to see this movie!
Downton Hotties: Dan Stevens and Michelle Dockery
I’ve already done a hottie post on the Men of Downton Abbey (one of my most popular posts!), but it’s no secret that Dan Stevens is my fave. I went to see him in The Heiress on Broadway, and stalking the stage door finally paid off! I not only met him, but hugged him, got his autograph and a picture with him! He was completely lovely and charming in person, so now I’m even more obsessed. I will be crushed if he doesn’t return for Season 4. Crushed. And Michelle Dockery is just stunning. Even though Lady Mary is a bit stuck up, I have a soft spot for her!
Just Cause: Leonardo DiCaprio and John Krasinski
Leo should always be featured, just cause he’s Leo. He is one of my all-time faves, and since he made it to the final round of Hottie Madness earlier this year, I know I’m not alone! I’m excited to see him in Django Unchained, but more excited for The Great Gatsby, which was supposed to be out this year but has been pushed back until 2013. Bummer. Either way, he had a busy 2012. And in case you need another reason (which you don’t), he was featured in the Details Hollywood Maverick’s issue as the Leading Man. John Krasinski was featured in that same issue as the Idea Man, which made me realize I’ve never done a post on him (what?), so this is way overdue. I’ve been a long time fan of John on The Office, and I basically love him in anything he does! He’s just so damn adorable. Check him out in the upcoming movie Promised Land, which he co-created, co-wrote and co-stars in with fellow hottie Matt Damon.
The New Hotties: The Cast of New Girl
I recently did a post on the boys of New Girl and like I said in that post, I started watching the show because I was a fan Zooey Deschanel (and still am), but the guys have totally won me over and stolen my heart. New Girl has become one of my favorite shows, and the cast has such great chemistry. Can’t get enough of the douchebag jar!
Brotherly Hotties: Chris and Liam Hemsworth
I’ve featured both brothers on this site, and they have both had incredible years, Liam with The Hunger Games and Chris with Snow White, The Avengers and Red Dawn. So…I can’t feature one without the other. I love how Thor director Kenneth Branagh described Chris’ appeal to Out magazine: “[Chris] is built like a concrete shipyard and looks very fetching with his shirt off.” Umm, yum.
Girl Crushing: Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway
There are so many women I could feature, but these are three of my fave ladies of 2012, each of them being nominated for SAG and Golden Globe awards for their performances this year! Jennifer had a huge year with The Hunger Games and I’m so happy to see her nominated for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook, which I adored. (Check out my review!) I think she is super sexy and I love her raspy voice and sense of humor. I was also lucky to see Jessica Chastain in The Heiress, and the fact that Jessica came out to talk to the fans, take pics and sign autographs was amazing. She was incredibly sweet and I was thrilled to meet such a charming, beautiful, total A-lister, with the most fabulous hair and smile. I loved her in The Help, and I can’t wait to see her in Zero Dark Thirty. And I’ve been a fan of Anne Hathaway since The Princess Diaries. I think she is stunning, such a unique beauty, and I love seeing her all over the red carpet while promoting Les Mis. She is getting rave reviews for her performance, and from the clips I’ve seen and heard, I know she will be fabulous. As always! Good luck during award season, ladies!
Hottest Judging Musician: Adam Levine
There are so many hot musicians, and I don’t feature enough of them on my blog, but Adam Levine has had an incredible year (well, few years) and it’s time to show him some love. I’m not a devoted fan of The Voice, although I love the show when I do watch it, and seriously, Adam Levine is so hot. And funny. An genuine. And great with the contestants. And that dude can sing. I mean, who knew a song about a payphone could be so freaking sexy??? I just love all those tats, and the voice, and the hair, and the shirtless moves like Jagger, and the overall rock star vibe.
Surprise Obsessions: Bradley Cooper and Ben Affleck
Well, I recently mentioned in my post about Bradley that I was never a huge fan (not cause of his looks, but cause of the characters he played), but my love for Silver Linings Playbook made him my latest obsession. I adored him in that movie and now his hotness has gone to a whole new level. Same with Ben Affleck. I don’t know why, but I just wasn’t a fan. After Good Will Hunting, I went down the path of Matt Damon and turned on Ben Affleck. Sorry Ben, I don’t know why. But I have loved all the movies he’s directed and also starred in, especially Argo, and I’m pleased to see it nominated for so many awards. He is clearly at the top of his game, and I kind of adore his relationship with Jennifer Garner. Plus, how can you not melt at the fact that Jennifer says he “excels” at “playing babydoll” with his girls Violet and Seraphina? Totally swoon-worthy. Consider me converted!
So, that’s it. The last hottie post of the year. But I’ll be back the first week of January with a new crop for 2013!

I was going to save the Henry Cavill post until Man of Steel was released, but since it’s not coming out until NEXT YEAR, screw that! I’m not waiting that long! He has a movie coming out this weekend, The Cold Light of Day, so he deserves a post RIGHT NOW. And do I even need a reason to post pictures of Henry? Umm, no.
He’s already been the subject of a few posts, including being one of our top picks to play Christian Grey! So let’s just call this a gratuitous Henry Cavill post and we can enjoy it for what it is: pure hotness. And his new movie looks pretty good. But, to me, a shirtless, sweaty Henry Cavill totally equals a good movie!
