Let me start by saying this: I AM NOT GAY! Not that I’m a homophobe or anything… personally I think it’s a superior lifestyle. 2 men could get so much done in a day! I just don’t want the ladies of the world to read this wondering with baited breath. If you listen closely, you can probably hear their collective sigh of relief right now. That being said, let’s get on with it…

While I don’t have a penchant for penis, there are a few up-and-coming actors out there who I do really like… NAY! Who’s careers I find myself cheering on. Plus, they’re all [switch to Zoolander voice] really, reallyย good looking. Here’s my Top 5 (in order):


My wife and I actually discovered this man (as we like to think) in 2003 after seeing a little film called Dahmer, in which Renner played the title character. His abilities were present even then. We watched for years as he struggled to find his feet in Hollywood, taking less than stellar roles in films such as North Country and S.W.A.T. However, Renner broke out this year with a fantastic turn in the Best Picture Oscar Winning Film The Hurt Locker and even managed to grab a Best Actor nod for himself. With a part lined up in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s next film, he shows no sign of letting up!


Anyone who sat through the Fantastic Four films knows that Evans was the best thing they had to offer. However, that didn’t leave me thinking he’d amount to anything special. It was his more interesting turns in films like Push (not based on a novel by Sapphire) and Sunshine that had me thinking this guy has chops. I’ll even admit that I can’t wait to see him kick ass as Captain America: The First Avenger next year… he also kind of reminds me of my #1!


When I saw Wedding Crashers I didn’t necessarily think the guy playing the a-hole boyfriend would turn out to be a big star. It was about a year later, when I saw Failure to Launch and an episode of Kitchen Confidential, that I told my wife this guy was going to be big. Who new all it would take was a night of heavy drinking with a bearded comedian, the guy from The Office and that dude from National Treasure. I fear a little that Cooper could be facing a bit of backlash soon due to over-exposure… similar to Jude Law in 2006 & 2007. But who cares? Bring on the A-TEAM!


Oh, Mal! Fillion is one of 2 stars featured on this list to come out of the show 2 Guys, 1 Cup… WAIT… SORRY! I meant 2 Guys, a Girl & a Pizza Place. That 3rd guy must feel pretty bad about the direction his career has taken. Fillion has struggled to break through to leading man status in films. Even though he’s turned out stellar work in films like Slither, Waitress & White Noise 2: The Light. YEAH! He was in White Noise 2. Fillion has managed to remain a working actor and is currently starring in ABC’s hit show CASTLE. Still, he will always be loved for his turn as Malcolm Reynolds in Joss Whedon‘s cult hit TV show Firefly and the subsequent movie adaptation Serenity. Oh, and he just seems like a nice guy!


What can I say? If Iย was going to bat for the other team, he’d be the guy! I can’t say I recognized it back when he starred on You Can’t Do That On Television. However, I did tell my wife after watching the aforementioned 2 Guys, a Girl & a Pizza Place, that this guy was going to be a big star. It appears my prediction has come true. Reynolds has quickly become an A-list star and his name has found it’s way on to the short list of go to leading men. I think it’s the way he manages to deliver his lines with such sarcasm while managing to avoid appearing condescending… if that makes sense. If not, just go watch Van Wilder. I also like that he managed to marry Scarlett Johanssen and yet we don’t see him in the tabloids everyday. That’s to be admired. Plus, I’ve heard other celebrities say, in real life, he’s one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet.

Have a great week and apparently… based on the pictures I found for this post, Jeremy Renner is the only star on this list that hasn’t done a shoot for Playgirl Magazine!!!

  1. Pretty gay post dude!

    My picks would be the more established everyman Mark Rufallo & George Clooney… they’re MUCH hotter than your guys… I mean… ermmm… TAXI FOR PARAGRAPH FILM REVIEWS…

  2. We have the same taste in men, how cool is that ๐Ÿ˜€
    I would have been very impressed if you managed to include James Franco too…

  3. The fact that you have a top 5 for this is a bit scary ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m just going to nominate my man Mark Ruffalo as well as Christian Bale as two dudes I would not mind having a beer with.

  4. I’m cool with the man crush list. Most guys have one and that just shows your comfortable with your manliness, but I have to say I’m amused as hell that you picked guys that are all shirtless in these photos. Love ya Kai! Ha!

    Ryan Reynolds, Nathan Fillion, and Jeremy Renner are awesome choices. I’d replace Chris Evans with Paul Walker, but only because I loved him in Running Scared so much.

    To be fair, I’ll offer you my girl crushes:

    Vanessa Marcil
    Megan Fox
    Angelina Jolie
    Kate Beckinsale
    Elizabeth Hurley

    and Zoe Saldana is a runner up

    Yes. I’m partial to Brunettes.

  5. As an 18 year old, heterosexual female I have to say, a straight man couldn’t have picked better men to blog about!!! Except for Julian Casablancas, but I am beginning to realize that I may the only one who has such a strong penchant for this man. Anyways. Good job!

  6. I like the shirtless thing that is going on with men. Nice for us ladies.

  7. Cool list! If I like blondes I would add Paul Walker to the List as well. Can’t decide which I like better the piercing blues or the wash boards!

    And hey we all know you guys all have your list of man crushes. Good to see you confident enough to share with us!!!!

  8. Great post. It’s always nice to see straight men who aren’t afraid to admit there are some attractive guys out there. I couldn’t agree more with your # 1 (Ryan Reynolds) and you’re spot on with Chris Evans being the best thing that Fantastic Four had to offer.

  9. its ok too embrace your (arnold schwaz. voice) Girly man side….lol

    cool picks….not my choices for the top 5…but would have made my top 100… the ab shot at the top…wish i would had found it for my blog today….kinda talking about the same thing…in a round bout way…


  10. I’m all about Jeremy Renner, and even though I don’t want to be, I would let Bradley Cooper violate me several times over. Just saying.

    I respect your man crushes. I have a woman crush on Penelope Cruz.

  11. Betty Robbins Says:

    Only a man completely secure in his masculinity can have a man crush! LOL… Also, FYI…Nathan Fillion was on a soap that I watched many years ago, so he has been around for awhile. And who knew that Ryan Reynolds was so hot with his shirt off??? You go Scarlett!! Good Job Kai. You really do have that writer’s way with words… Love ya, Betty :~)

  12. essentialsimplicity Says:

    Haven’t heard of Chris Evans but he is definitely pleasant on the eye. I absolutely adore Nathan Fillion in Castle it’s a fantastic role, not sure if it’s him but 99% sure that he also does a voice in Halo ODST. And Ryan Reynolds well I would love to meet that guy.

  13. beautyoftheyear Says:

    My female crushes are:
    Anna Paquin
    Kate Winslet
    Sanaa Lathan
    Salma Hayak

  14. first thing i was going to say was that you are gay, but then i saw that you wrote in bold in your first sentence that you are not, haha.

    But seriously bro, if you are going to make a list like this, do yourself a favor and leave out the shirtless muscle pics, it is just too much. lol.


  15. LOL…funny post! I do find it interesting that most of the men are shirtless in these pics.

  16. Ohhh Nathan Fillion, how I love thee.
    And the rest of your list. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. totally loved this post. awesome that you can admit your man crushes. even more awesome that you used the phrase “penchant for penis”. in my opinion, i’d replace jeremy renner with simon baker. and then make him #1. only b/c he’s amazingly beautiful. and b/c i do have a penchant for penis.

  18. Love, love, love your man crush list — methinks all male bloggers should do one!

  19. I agree with you completely about Nathan Fillion. He’s a total drool fest. Although I have to give a shout out to my favorite hottie Carl Urban! He’s foreign and a good actor! Could there be a better combo?

  20. Hhaha this is very creepy, but I at least your open saying that you would love to “be these guys”.

  21. LMAO! Ok, Renner, LOVE HIM! Also, Bradley Cooper is like man crush as Angelina Jolie is like girl crush, given. Everyone else? Ehhh…Chris Evans?! As if! What about Eric Bana?! LOVE him!

  22. Ryan Reynolds….*deep sigh*. I fell in love with him in The Nines. Good list. Getting better all the time Kai-son.

  23. Was Gerard Buttler too obvious(ly handsome)?

  24. I am drooling looking at those gorgeous men:D hehehe

  25. I made a couple of posts like this.

    Guys I’d Go Gay For (Vol. 1)

    Guys I’d Go Gay For (Vol. 2)

    You’ve got a hunky list. Lots of muscles, haha.

  27. what a coincidence – we have the same crushes! ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. I dunno about your taste in men, my friend. But then you are a straight man so maybe your palate just hasn’t been refined ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Jeremy Renner – Meh.
    Chris Evans – Don’t know him, but his picture IS hot. Kudos.
    Bradley Cooper – Meh. Don’t see the appeal.
    Nathan Fillion – Meh. But liked him in Waitress.
    Ryan Reynolds – Yes, YES, YESSSSSS! Okay, you hit this one on the mark. He is hottie hot hotness all wrapped in a bun. You can have the other four and I’ll take Ryan.

    I appreciate this post coming from a man. I think it rocks.

  29. Okay, I’m straight too but I’ve got my list almost lamenated.

    Ryan Reynolds
    Zac Efron
    Brad Pitt
    Will Smith
    Andy Samberg

    It’s all out of love, I’m so lost without you. jk.

    Maybe I’d call it a bff list. Is that any straighter?

  30. A) this is funny
    B) if I had one Bruce Willis.

  31. You have pretty good taste considering your non-gayness. Good job. I approve. =]

  32. Really liked your post, and your willingness to get in touch with your feminine side :0)! I must say though that I would’ve added Robert Deniro to any many crush list – not up and coming or even young, but he continues to dominate as an actor!

    I also write a blog on here, so feel free to check it out,, and I’ve already added you to my blogroll!

  33. danieldamianm Says:

    You sure youre not gay? How about racist? I don’t see any African Americans? There are some very good looking dudes in that category, revise and include them dude- it’s kind of biased otherwise. Do you realize the talent you’re overlooking? Otherwise- so-so list. And yeeeeah, you might be gay, lol.

  34. I would just like to say that i agree with every male on this list!!! Also, I’m nominating Hugh Jackman. Im sure plenty of straight guys wouldn’t mind a go at him.

  35. mcarteratthemovies Says:

    Dude, your post made the WordPress main page! Congrats! You’re going to get, like, 80,000 comments on this one!

    If I was a man person, Joaquin Phoenix, Geoffrey Rush (shut up, I’m weird), Gabriel Garcia Bernal, Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn would be on here. You’re totally right to include Fillion, though. I mean … woof.

    But since I’m a chick, here are my GIRL crushes:

    5) Milla Jovovich (duh)
    4) Agnes Bruckner
    3) Queen Latifah
    2) Kelli Garner
    1) Maggie Gyllenhaal

  36. Ryan Reynolds was the only one on that list I halfway approve of.

  37. No Mark Wahlberg or Brad Pitt? I’m not sure I can support this list!

  38. tianaalexa Says:

    I must say you have guts for posting this dear! My crush list includes Hugh Jackman, Alexander Skarsgard and Robert Downey Jr to name a few! Congrats on making the main news page!

  39. danielandjamie Says:

    HAHAHA. This is awsome. I can totally level with you on the whole “straight” man having a man crush list. I’m glad someone was comfortable enough to admit it, and even post it. Plus i agree with you because Ryan Reynolds is my number 1 too (yes for a straight man who has no “penchant for penis”). Another actor who is doing really well that is really really good looking is Aaron Johnson from Kick-ASS.

  40. Wow, a straight guy sharing his thoughts on men he finds ‘really really good looking’! This makes me happy! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Please continue and be an example to the other straight men in the world!

    My five:

    – Josh Holloway
    – Christian Bale
    – Johhny Depp
    – Edward Norton
    – Dave Gahan

  41. Check out Renner in “Neo Ned.” Slightly more than disturbing but still a great movie (in my opinion at least. Nice list, and I’d have to agree with you on all accounts.

  42. i love ur number one ๐Ÿ™‚ I SO AGREE!

  43. nerdmuch Says:

    Couldn’t agree with you more, probably the wit that you added to it. I would look into Ethan Hawke (recently in Daybreakers and also starred in GATTACA and Dead Poet’s Society.) At first glance I thought your number four was Channing Tatum but it wasn’t, which is good. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I would have definitely added Christian Bale onto this list, just because he kicks ass like no other.

    Here are my top five GIRL crushes:
    5) Angelina Jolie
    4) Audrey Hepburn (even though she’s dead)
    3) Maggie Gyllenhaal
    2) Cate Blanchett
    1) Madonna

    And PS great writing, contains enough wit and sarcasm to keep you reading.

  44. subversivechurch Says:

    I’ll man up and put up my list in solidarity.

    5. Ralph Fiennes
    4. Christian Bale
    3. Jude Law
    2. Clive Owen
    1. Ryan Reynolds

    – mike

  45. […] The Man Crush List […]

  46. you are the next evolution of the straight man, and I got to say, I’m pretty impressed and excited about it. (Here I thought straight men were hopeless!) Awesome list, and thanks for showing other straight men that they can find other men attractive and not be gay, but still not have to distance themselves from gay people and put them down. Oh, and I also like that I have a superior lifestyle. lol. ๐Ÿ™‚ Even though society doesn’t think its true because I can’t legally marry, join the army, or donate blood, at least some people can see how awesome we are. Thanks!

  47. Liked the list except number 2 and 5.

    – Ryan Reynolds went off the hook when he did THE PROPOSAL. So loved him there, and lets not forget about Definitely, Maybe.
    – Bradley Cooper, got a super crush on him in HANGOVER but flipped playing the i-thought-was-a-guy-but-was-a-gay in Valentine’s Day. Even so, he still is gorgeous.
    – Chris Evans is so freakin’ hot. His role in THE CELLULAR?? (Was that the title? I totally forgot…), it was the bomb. Is he really playing Captain American? I heard…

    Anyways, nice blog.

  48. wife in captivity Says:

    Yum – love your list of hotties! I might be tempted to swap a more Viggo Mortensen or Val Kilmer for Nathon Fillion but that’s just nitpicking.

  49. woah!! i had no idea ryan reynolds had such a great body! i’m very impressed with your choices; didn’t choose all the fake-bodied-bad-acting men of the press.

    i’d have to add george clooney for sure, as well as possibly paul bettany. he’s not that good looking, but he has his moments ๐Ÿ˜‰

  50. shesmyhusband Says:

    Every woman loves Bradley Cooper. lol!

  51. Branden Says:

    I would agree with three out of the five of the choices. I will fight you over Ryan Reynolds.

  52. kelliejwin Says:

    Can’t say I disagree with you on any of them. I think Ryan Reynolds has had an amazing transformation, and Nathan Fillion – loved him in Serenity. Great post! Personally, I like stars with talent who do not need to be in mags all the time.

  53. Nevea Lane Says:

    I totally agree with this list, and even some of the girl crushes too. Queen Latifah is my girl, and I have like Milla Jovovich in Ultraviolet, The Fifth Element.
    Of course, I do have a new thing for the dark brunette Eminem… not so much the blonde one, but Mr. Mathers’ new dark look is mmm mysterious yet sexy.
    Lets see,
    Common, that bald head and that sly smile, makes a girl’s toes point south.
    Hayden Christensen
    Paul Walker
    ….I could keep going, but well what fun is trying to narrow down the top five?
    Women –
    Taraji P. Henson
    Ashley Judd

  54. I’m so glad Nathan Fillion’s on this list. He’s such a great actor and well…being hot as hell doesn’t hurt.

  55. If my husband wrote this blog post, and chose all those shirtless photos… well I think I’d be a bit concerned. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    But *I* enjoyed them. LOL!

    I knew Bradley Cooper was great when he was on ALIAS for years. It is nice to see him getting more work. I thought he would be overlooked in Hollywood. I’m glad to see he wasn’t.

  56. mangoseeker Says:

    I LOVE this, haha.

    As a heterosexual (sometimes self-proclaimed metro), I am fascinated with the human body, both male and female, and love observing both.

    On that note, I have had a very long man crush on (albeit somewhat cliche) Brad Pitt. I marvel at his ability to pull off any look, from extreme to subtle; whether it be his facial hair, or his physique (Thelma & Louise to Troy).

    But more importantly, he is an all-time great actor, and is quite the impressive intellectual.

    As for your post, thumbs up with the Ryan Reynolds pick at #1. Scarlett is my forbidden treasure, and I am ok with her and Ryan Reynolds being together; both with their physical compatibility of uber-beauty/hotness, but also has two smart individuals who, like you said, are absent from the tabloids.

    Great post!

  57. I really like.. I’m now subscribing to your posts!
    Bruno. (Brazil)

  58. How about Renner in Hawkeye purple for the Avengers movie?

  59. Ryan Reynolds. Mmm. Bradley Cooper. Also mmm. There are some hot Europeans I would add, however – for those of us with continental tastes. Romain Duris (adorable), Jean-Marc Barr, and oh-my-heart-be-still, Colin Firth, who just keeps getting better and better.

    Eclectic tastes, I realize. But I do appreciate your careful selection of images for your readers. And who says women aren’t visual?

  60. CHRIS EVANS should definitely be your number one!

  61. I don’t think I can say anything appropriate here. Most of those men make me hot. Ok… I can make a good comment. I agree with a bunch of those (you know, aside from the fact that they are delicious, tasty, make me want to have their children). Seriously, I agree with your assessment. I can’t give you a list that wouldn’t seem like the top 100 men that I think are absolutely gorgeous.

  62. nicolebourque Says:

    My husband and I play a similar game. We’re always picking out ultra hot celebs to crush on.

    I’m glad Bradley Cooper made your list. He rocks! He was just in The Hangover and All About Steve.

  63. NATHAN FILLION was also Caleb in Buffy!

  64. moriahbethany Says:

    1)Elisabeth Mitchell-Lost
    2)Katee Sackoff-Battlestar- Galactica
    3)Detective Becket-Castle
    4)Shanon Sosymon- A Knights Tale
    5)Rachel McAdams-Mean Girls & The Notebook

  65. LOL…I love it…good pics too!

  66. Ryan Renner was great in “28 Weeks Later” too.

  67. Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds for sure!!! I actually started renting the B movies they are in to watch them! CONGRATS to them! I am also a huge fan of Russell Brand!


  68. Only a man completely secure in his masculinity can have a man crush! LOL

  69. Good Job Kai. You really do have that writerโ€™s way with wordsโ€ฆ Love ya, Betty

  70. Phoenix, Geoffrey Rush (shut up, Iโ€™m weird), Gabriel Garcia Bernal, Ryan

  71. Only a man completely secure in his masculinity can have a man crush! LOLโ€ฆ Also, FYIโ€ฆNathan Fillion was on a soap that I watched many years ago, so he has been around for awhile.

  72. meekthegeek Says:

    Nathan Fillion also deserves a mention for his role as Captain Hammer. He is the man.

  73. Unknown Says:

    Dude, totally with you on Evans, Cooper, and Reynolds (they are soooo freaken sexy… coming from a girls point of view).

  74. I’ve had such a crush on Ryan Reynolds for so long even though the first thing I saw him in was Van Wilder so his name has kind of become synonymous with those special eclairs. I do love him as an actor though. Awesome picks.

  75. I would definitely hang out on a deck overlooking the sunset in Key West shootin’ the breeze with Kevin Costner. Probably generate some projects to change the world…

  76. You’re really into the psuedo-buff generic charismatic douche type, aren’t you? Not disparaging, certainly, but it’s a pattern. ๐Ÿ™‚

  78. YES YES YES to chris evans and bradley cooper…thumbs up Great blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  79. goldenpast Says:


  80. I’m glad JEREMY RENNER is on the list! The apartment “love” interest, from Dahmer, was a former high schoolstudent of mine. (Yes, I’m OLD!)

    I think you need a top 10 and add the following folks…
    -Clive Owen
    -Boris Kodjoe
    -Daniel Craig
    -Morris Chestnut
    -Steve McQueen (My MIL had me add him)

    OH…and add the ALL the world cup soccer players.


  81. hideawaywithme Says:

    You have very very good taste

  82. nearlynormalized Says:

    Face it, you are queer!!!!

  83. Good for you!! Not many “straight” men are secure enough with their sexuality to comment on their man crushes. I think it’s a great list. My picks would have been different. I would have gone with looks rather than talent that’s for sure…lol.

  84. Kristina Says:

    Congratulations on your main page promo! I’m with ya (figuratively speaking, of course) on Ryan Reynolds. I agree with mcarteratthemovies re: Ryan Gosling, but not so much on Geoffrey Rush. What about musicians (e.g., David Bowie), instead of actors?

  85. This is phenomenal! I think every man should have to admit to who their “man crush” is. I think it reveals a lot about who they are as a person… or who they want to be.

  86. They’re all white. What’s up with that? I mean, I’m white, but my list would DEFINITELY include Will Smith. Whew! He’s a stud!

  87. What about Christian Bale? If I was a guy, I would so boy crush him. I would also crush on Beat Takeshi. I like the angry type I guess. Seems like the ladies are letting you know their girl crushes, so here’s mine:

    5)Natasha Khan
    4)Joanna Newson
    3)Zhou Xun (ๅ‘จ่ฟ…)
    2)Angelina Jolie
    1)Emmanuelle Beart

    Interesting and beautiful people.

    – Kate Winslet
    – Keira Knightley
    – Tina Fey
    – Natalie Portman

    As Editor In Chief, and wife, of The List, I am not threatened in any way nor do I find this post weird…maybe I just know you a little too well, maybe I’m in denial :)…

    yes, i’m surprised Channing Tatum is NOT on this list…but i see your reasoning…I’d have to go James McAvoy, you know my thing with blue eyes and prominent noses…and Paul Rudd, love the funny guys!! I think I just described you!!

    Anyways, love the post, love the shirtless boys, and Ryan Reynolds was on Fifteen, not You Can’t Do That On Television…although they were both nick, and both Canadian….

    @ Betty: Sorry Lady, already called the Nathan Fillion/One Life to Live thing many posts ago…

    I hate that I know this stuff!!

    • He cameoed on YCDTOTV…. WOW! You need your little Orphan Annie decoder ring for that!
      Channing Tatum would be my 6 or 7 and I totally forgot Chris Pine… DANGIT! He woulda been 5.
      Oh, and if I didn’t know you like I do, sweetie, you McAvor fetish would be disturbing! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Editor In Chief Says:

        what?! those eyes, that accent…okay, i think i’m more in love with the characters he plays…

  96. Yah! for your inclusion of Nathan Fillion!

    I canโ€™t say I was all that smitten by him in Firefly and Serenity (and no idea he was in A Guy, A Girl, Etc.). But when my sister โ€˜forcedโ€™ me to
    start watching Castle a few weeks ago, I was instantly HOOKED! A great show with great writing and a fabulous cast. I only wish Season 3 wasnโ€™t so far away.

    The boys from Supernatural finally have some sizable competition. ๐Ÿ™‚

  101. I think you just sold me on Chris Evans. I agree on Bradley Cooper, but I’d add Ryan Phillippe, Chris Pine and James Franco. I’m gay, though, so I guess maybe that’s cheating.

    For balance, my women:

    Scarlett Johansson
    Megan Fox
    Michelle Williams
    Anne Hathaway
    Kate Winslet

  102. Actors are guys of fantastic love-life affair. They are great lovers.

  103. Ryan Reynolds is great . . .
    but I am more wondering if you’re really not gay . . .

  104. 0h my w000rd. Ryan is s0 h0tt!!! G0sh.

    I think Jessica Alba needs t0 be 0n y0ur list 0f ladies th0ugh ๐Ÿ˜‰

  105. Yes to Ryan Reynolds.

  106. hey wait wasnt Ryan on 2 guys, a girl and a pizza place too??? i think he was.. and Chris Evan is absolutely hot… that bod!!! rawrrr. I love Gerard Butler and Hugh Jackman. And that dude from that movie “because i said so” So dreamy he is.

  107. Funny ๐Ÿ™‚

  108. I have kind of an older mancrush thing going on. Sean Connery. Christopher Walken. If I had to go with a conventional pick, Johnny Depp. Easily. he seems like a nice guy.

  109. Intriguing list man. As an actor I agree with Jeremy Renner, Chris Evans and Ryan Reynolds. I’d probably pick Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman and Will Smith myself, maybe even Jake Gylenhaal. Plus I’d lookout for Zac Efron he’s got some good things coming. His next film Charlie St. Cloud looks appealing in terms of acting chops…

    I’ll keep reading your posts we could definitely work off each other if you don’t mind..?

  110. Ryan Reynolds is blooming lately, no? And dammit shes got Scarlett Johansson! :p

    Chris Evans is also in my man crush list.

  111. Interesting, I like that you’ve not gone for obvious choices. I did think the same about Bradley Cooper after seeing Failure to Launch. And Ryan R… in Two Guys he had Hollywood rom com boy written all over him.

  112. Editor In Chief Says:

    P.S. If I had to go girl crush it would be: Zoey Deschanel, Tina Fey, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Garnier, I’ll even throw in some Sarah Polley, and for purely physical reasons, gotta go Angelina Jolie…I’m sure there are more that I just can’t think of right now…

    I think you need to do the “anti – crush” post…i’m throwing in my two cents right now for kristen stewart, kirsten dunst, and will smith…i loathe them!!!

    • How can you loathe Will Smith? That’s like hating kittens and rainbows!
      That being said, give me your top 5 women again but say them slower!
      Oh, and Polley makes the list just for Dawn of the Dead!

      • Editor In Chief Says:

        I don’t know what it is, I just don’t like him…I don’t care to see the movies he does…I guess I would also throw in Guy Pearce….that guy bugs…you know why…it’s, well, um, his face…ya know?!

  113. I was giving myself props for posting ten scenes that made me cry — but this posting is so much bolder than mine. Kudos to you and your self-confidence. I always thought Jeff Bridges and Kevin Kline were sexy men. Not into the whole feminine looking guys like Depp or DiCaprio.

  114. Kai, I open up my email and find 100 something messages, all followup comments to this post. Stop being so goddamn popular, my server almost crashed.


  115. Ahahah Kai hit the jackpot! Oorah!

  116. […] Let me start by saying this: I AM NOT GAY! Not that I'm a homophobe or anything… personally I think it's a superior lifestyle. 2 men could get so much done in a day! I just don't want the ladies of the world to read this wondering with baited breath. If you listen closely, you can probably hear their collective sigh of relief right now. That being said, let's get on with it… While I don't have a penchant for penis, there are a few up-and-comi … Read More […]

  117. Editor In Chief Says:

    love you!!! look at what you have done…you’re my hero!!! sorry it’s for this post, though!!

  118. Branden Says:

    Wow, you had so many comments that it crashed your site for a while.

  119. Holy crap am I late to the party. It’s only been two days!

    But anyways, great post. If I had to list five, and not including any of yours, I would go with (in no specific order):

    1. Clive Owen
    2. Jared Leto
    3. Alexander Skarsgard
    4. Viggo Mortenson
    5. Ethan Hawke

  120. I love that you had the balls to post this. Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds would have landed on my list, too…and now I’m going to have to keep an eye out for this Chris Evans character. ๐Ÿ™‚

  121. Holy cannoli, I’m a little late on this one, but props on making the front page dude! A big moment in any blogger’s life, keep on fishing for that feeling again myself.

    And since it looks like over a hundred people have beaten me to the punch in terms of calling you gayer than eight guys blowing nine guys, an inspired post all the same.

    But you’re missing Clint Eastwood for some reason. Not into the 80-year-old, highly intimidating male ass?

  122. Oh, and how I forgot Bernal I have no idea. I didn’t rank the other ones, but Bernal would be the top vote for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  123. Songbird Says:

    Cooper and Reynolds yeah… but Fillion??…Here’s a brand ne one for you-one to look out for- he is still a bit on the young (and pretty) side… but… has HUGE promise and a hollywood mega agencies bidding war behind him after he played (young) Boy George in a BBC drama (Worried About The Boy)… and brilliantly so I might add. He is Douglas Booth….
    mark my words… give him 5 years…. Pattison is looking over his shoulder already….

  124. sophia*kinkel Says:

    number 5 and 3 should be numbers 1 and 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  125. Natalya Says:

    Great post! 2 guys I have to add are Ryan Gosling & Channing Tatum! And the older men in my life? Sean Connery & Gerard Butler ๐Ÿ™‚

    • As I said before, Tatum is probably my #6 or 7. Ryan Gosling is a great add though!

      • Sorry, I didn’t see about Tatum…was distracted by some of the comments and of course, the hot men. I did remember one more that’s been around since 2000 but has been more popular recently:

        Jason Statham ๐Ÿ™‚

        I guess I have a thing for the older men

  126. I wonder if those of you that have mentioned Sean Connery are aware of his views on abusing women. Is it that you aren’t aware of them? Or that you don’t mind?

  127. @Olive I agree with Olive – James Franco is a must!! Also, Milo Ventimiglia…

  128. robvillegas Says:

    Right now I’ve got a Manu Bennett (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) think going. Andy Whitfield (also Spartacus) is a kool kat and could do a sick James Bond me thinks. Not sure about Renner. On the female side, it’s Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Tabrett Bethell (Legend of the Seeker).

  129. Hands down Anderson Cooper for mind and body
