Hottie Madness 2014: The Final Four!

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? Just a reminder, voting is blocked by IP address and cookie to keep things as fair as possible.

Vote Now! Hottie Madness 2014, Final 4! Johnny Depp vs Jake Gyllenhaal. #hottiemadness2014   #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(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.

Hottie Madness 2014: The Elite 8

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?

Hottie Madness 2014: The Sweet 16.

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.

(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?

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Crush Bracket.

After a few upsets, two very intense battles and one really close call in Round 1, we’ve made it to Round 2 of the Crush 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.

(1) Justin Timberlake vs (9) Richard Madden
Top seed Justin Timberlake beat out Chiwetel Ejiofor (who was great in 12 Years a Slave, which I finally watched this weekend), with 75% of the vote. And Richard had a small upset over Justin Theroux with 76%. But can Robb Stark claim the Iron Throne of hotness from JT? (Can you tell I’m missing Game of Thrones?)

(1) Justin Timberlake vs (16) Chiwetel Ejiofor
JT has become a bit of a renaissance man, and one of the best SNL hosts/Jimmy Fallon guests ever, but to me he will always be known as the man who brought sexy back. And Chiwetel has made quite a name for himself this year, with his Oscar nom for 12 Years A Slave. I wouldn’t mind seeing more of his face. Just saying…

Two hotties, one movie: Jake Gyllenhaal and Hugh Jackman in Prisoners.

Originally, this started out as strictly a Jake Gyllenhaal post to be called something like Where have you been, Jake? But Hugh and Jake make quite the handsome acting duo in their new movie Prisoners, and there were so many cute photos of them together that I just had to share. So I would say the post is now 80% Jake and 20% Hugh. Especially since Hugh has already been featured a few times and Jake hasn’t been featured since August of 2011. I mean, that was like a lifetime ago!

Jake has been out of the spotlight for so long, I almost forgot how hot he was. OK, it hasn’t actually been that long, but while he was rocking that full beard he was just off my hotness radar altogether. I don’t mind his introspective, puppy-eyed, scruffy look. In fact, I’m totally on board with that, but he shouldn’t hide his assets (you know, like his face) under all that hair!

50 Shades of ???

{ OK, we’ve discussed the books, now it’s time to discuss the movie. Specifically, who could possible play Christian. Here are our thoughts. Would love to know yours! }

Sara: So I am at the start of book three in the 50 Shades of Grey series. And I am very excited about going to meet the author next week!! Since the movie has been scheduled to go into production, it has me thinking who could play Christian. I am at a loss. I have gone through all the GO hotties, and I am not sure anyone fits the bill!

Ash: I KNOW! It’s really a tough call. Part of me thinks they should cast someone unknown. I didn’t really know Robert Pattinson until he was cast as Edward and now I totally adore him. But would I feel the same way if he wasn’t playing the vamp of my dreams? I don’t know. Of all the men in Hollywood, I don’t know who I’d choose. Well, that’s not true. I’d choose Christian Bale from like 12 years ago when he was in American Psycho. He has just the right amount of crazy, and the name! But I know that’s not a reality, and let’s be honest, I just wanted an excuse to look at pages of CB pictures…so any actual ideas?

Christian Bale Christian Grey 50 Shades Christian Bale Christian Grey Christian Bale Christian Grey 50 Shades of Grey

Sara: I don’t think there is anyone as hot as Christian Grey with enough of an edge like him. I have been thinking about it over and over again and just don’t know who would play him well. I kinda thought Jake Gyllenhaalmainly because I know what his body can look like (thank you Jarhead) all jacked up and I wouldn’t mind seeing that again. But as much as I love Christian I am not sure I want to see Jake like that. And I heard Ian Somerhalder was interested. I am torn about how I feel about that, what about you?

The All-Arounders bracket: Sweet 16.

We’ve made it to the last bracket in the Sweet 16: The All-Arounders. More than halfway there! The races weren’t too close in this one, except for Joseph Gordon-Levitt vs Ian Somerhalder. I thought for sure Ian would take it but nerdy-sexy wins over smirky-sexy, and JGL took the lead with 51%. (By the way, no love for vampires in this bracket, both Damon and Edward lost.)  Leo won with 80% and Jake and James made it through with 73% each. Voting for this bracket ends Saturday March 17th. (Don’t forget to vote for The Foreigners and The Better-With-Age Sweet 16 brackets.) And go!

Stylish Jake Gyllenhaal.

Sara, this one’s for you!

GQ Australia has released their August/September Big Style Issue. And your man Jake Gyllenhaal is gracing the cover! Actually, its a gatefold cover that also features Justin Timberlake and Ryan Reynolds! Triple the viewing pleasure! Here’s what GQ editor Nick Smith  has to say about Jake: “He started out playing Billy Crystal’s son in City Slickers. Twenty years later, Gyllenhaal is still one of Hollywood’s hottest properties. His career judgment has been impeccable. Gyllenhaal’s personal style is similarly flawless: the guy knows how to wear a suit … Tuxes are never a problem and he’s equally adept at a motorcycle-cut leather jacket, slim-cut jeans and Wayfarers. He seems unassuming, but you never forget the star power that lies beneath.”
