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 Lust Bracket.

We’ve made it to the final bracket in Round 2 of Hottie Madness 2014 – the Lust bracket. Lots of upsets in Round 1 which resulted in a very long rant courtesy of my best friend. See notes below. Just a reminder to all, I CAN’T control the fans and I’m sorry if your faves don’t get through! Some of mine have not moved on and believe me, no one is more pissed off about that than I am! But all of these guys have made it on the blog this past year, so they all deserve to be in the tourney. 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.

Voting for this bracket ends Saturday, March 29th. There is still time to vote in Round 2 of the Crush and Drool brackets, which have some very close races. Don’t forget to tag any social posts with #HottieMadness2014!

Vote Now! Hottie Madness 2014, Round 2: The Lust Bracket. Hugh Jackman vs Ryan Reynolds. #hottiemadness2014  #hughjackman #ryanreynolds #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Hugh Jackman vs (9) Ryan Reynolds
I feel like it’s no surprise that top seed Hugh Jackman beat out Damian Lewis with 80% of the vote. Ryan Reynolds, however, staged a small upset over Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey with a narrow 52% victory. (Friend Rant #1.) And now we have Wolverine vs Green Lantern. Aussie vs Canadian. Both with seriously hot bods (why am I not showing more skin???) and lots of charm.

Hottie Madness 2014, Round 1: The Lust Bracket. Hugh Jackman vs Damian Lewis. #hottiemadness2014  #hughjackman #damianlewis #eyecandy #girlyobsessions

(1) Hugh Jackman vs (16) Damian Lewis
It has to be hard to find someone who doesn’t like Hugh Jackman. He’s everyone’s fave Aussie! He can sing and dance and has that effortless charm. Unfortunately for Damian, he plays (well, played) such a polarizing character, that he might not be as well-liked. But let’s get over the fact that he’s not really a terrorist and just focus on his face.

More Fifty Shades Hotties (and a poll).

So just as we were all getting used to the idea of Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey, he goes and drops out of the movie. Damn. I was totally on board with this casting choice. But thanks to his scheduling conflict, or cold feet, we now get to drool over a new crop of potential candidates. The same few names are popping up in all the news articles – four of whom seem to be on the studio shortlist, three who are fan (and maybe studio) choices, and one super long shot fan fave. So let’s dive right in!

(Oh, and be sure to choose your fave in the poll at the bottom. Not that it will have any effect whatsoever in who gets chosen…)

 

*Post updated on 10/17 to throw the newest rumor into the mix: Francois Arnaud.

 

50 Shades Hotties: Jamie Dornan. Is Jamie your pick to play the elusive Chrisitan Grey? Cast your vote on the blog! #girlyobsessions #eyecandy #christiangrey #jamiedornan #hottie #50shades

Name: Jamie Dornan
Age: 31
Where you recognize him from: Marie Antoinette, Once Upon a Time, CK undie ads, former Keira Knightly arm candy
Why he works: Apparently Jamie is the front-runner to snag the role of Christian, and I think the reason is obvious. He’s smokin’ hot. With a seriously hot bod. So hot that the New York Times dubbed him “The Golden Torso.” A male model turned actor, he looks good in just about anything. (Or just about nothing). He kind of looks a bit Henry-Cavill-esque, don’t you think?

Hottie Madness, Round 2: The Heartbreakers.

Welcome to Round 2 of Hottie Madness! First up, The Heartbreakers. No super close calls in Round 1, but there was an exciting battle of the abs! There were over 4,000 votes cast in the David/Rafa poll, and even though Rafa fans rallied, David was victorious. We did have one upset with Matthew McConaughey beating out Wilson Bethel. Why no love for Wilson? Is no one else watching Hart of Dixie??

So let’s get on with Round 2. You can 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. Voting for this bracket has ended. But you can still vote for the last Round 2 bracket: The Seducers!

Round 2, The Heartbreakers: Bradley Cooper vs Colin Farrell. Hottie Madness 2013 presented by Girly Obsessions.
(1) Bradley Cooper vs (8) Colin Farrell

I guess it’s no surprise that Bradley beat Joe Flacco with 88% of the vote, even though Flacco fans tried to rally for a comeback! And Colin beat out Jon Hamm with 62%. As far as Bradley vs Colin, we have an all-American hottie vs. a sexy Irishman. Tough call.

Hottie Madness, Round 1: The Heartbreakers.

Welcome to Round 1 of Hottie Madness! First up, The Heartbreakers bracket. There is some tough competition here and I think we’ll have some close calls! Not to sway the 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.

You can 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. Voting for this bracket has ended. Round 2 is now open! And there is still time to vote in The Seducers Round 1 bracket.

Round 1, The Heartbreakers: Bradley Cooper vs Joe Flacco.  Hottie Madness 2013 presented by Girly Obsessions.
(1) Bradley Cooper vs (16) Joe Flacco
This is quite a turn of events. I actually started Hottie Madness last year because I was mad that Bradley Cooper was voted People’s Sexiest Man Alive instead of Ryan Gosling. But my love for Silver Linings Playbook resulted in a huge obsession with Mr. Cooper, and we find him as one of this years top seeds. So clearly I’m not alone. Joe Flacco is representing my hometown team, the Ravens. He was voted MVP after leading his team to a Superbowl victory. So I’d say he’s had a pretty successful year and his cool new $21mil a year salary is also quite attractive, don’t ya think?

One movie, so many hotties: Magic Mike.

Ashley: Even though I’m excited to be going on vacay, I’m kind of bummed to miss the premiere of Magic Mike. That may seem silly, but it’s like THE ultimate eye candy movie. Men. Naked. Hotness. Muscles. Stripping. Romance. Comedy. Basically, the perfect movie.

Sara: I have been very excited about this movie for a while now. The men in this movie range from my fave Step Upper to one of the hottest-self-proclaimed-off-set-nudists-playing-a-werewolf! I will be seeing this shortly after it comes out, and I will bring my own drool towel to the theater. No shame in this single girls life, skin is skin!

Ashley: Wait, is Joe a self-proclaimed nudist? How did I not know this?? It’s weird. When I see pics of Channing Tatum in real life, I don’t think he’s that hot, yet I love him in movies. What is that about? I know Step Up is like one of your fave movies, so you must be excited to see Channing bust a move again! And how about the Matt’s: McConaughey and Bomer? Double drool.

Sara:Well Joe said he likes to be nude, and naturally I bumped him up to nudist. I am sure that was what he meant. Something about Channing’s charm comes through in every role he plays and that’s why I like him so much. Matthew always makes me laugh and always looks good. And Matt is adorable, but since I know he plays for the other team, I just appreciate from afar!

Ashley: Haha, yeah, luckily there is a lot to appreciate. Well I’m sorry I’ll miss the premiere. Luckily I have all these seriously HOT photos to hold me over. Thanks, EW!

(And if you need any more convincing, watch the trailer. It’s what sold me!)

Muscles galore: the Magic Mike EW cover.

I know it’s a Thursday, and not a normal hottie day, but the latest Entertainment Weekly cover has too many hot muscles not to share! (And we’ll be back in a bit with another post!) It features the cast of Magic Mike, aka Channing Tatum’s male stripper movie. Joining Channing on the cover is Matthew McConaughey, Joe Manganiello and Matt Bomer. I’m usually not that attracted to Channing, although I do like him in movies (loved 21 Jump Street), and he’s looking pretty damn sexy on this cover. Well, they all are. And I have to say I’m kind of excited about this movie! It looks funny and cute with a bit of a twist on the classic romcom. Plus it has a serious amount of semi-naked hotness going on.
