I'm all about the secret boyfriends--a passion I share with many bloggy friends (the likes of Mrs. G and Tootsie Farklepants). I've got secret ugly boyfriends, secret gay boyfriends, secret dead boyfriends, secret dreamy boyfriends. I'm a connaisseur of men. But this year People Magazine really missed the target with it's Sexiest Men Alive list. Number one, well, he's the only target they hit dead on--few men make a girl feel all swoony inside like Hugh Jackman. He's got all his hair, kind eyes, a great smile, lovely voice, fantastic chest muscles, and he was Wolverine. Add to the equation the faithful husband-great father bit and he's almost as yummy as Mr. D (who is nearly everything I've mentioned). And I'm totally cool with Daniel Craig as #2 because a) he's hot and b) he's James Bond.
But the rest of the list does nada nunca nothing for this gal. I find the lot of them unattractive and dull--perhaps it's an age thing--Zac Efron? He looks like he's 19 tops. I like my sexy men to look like, well, MEN. Not like they sprouted facial hair and thicker vocal cords last week. Maybe it's a generational thing--the guy who played Zack on Saved by the Bell? He's got a smarmy look about him and still has greasy-looking hair, but maybe younger people who only know him from his TNT show see him differently. And ladies, I simply do not understand this whole Robert Pattinson thing. Granted, I've not read Twilight, but the dude bears an uncanny resemblance to one of my kids' teenaged karate instructors, Mr. K, so that fact alone makes me feel a little icky on the inside when I see him on the cover of Tiger Beat. I'll grant that I'm pushing 40, so anybody playing teenagers these days don't seem sexy or attractive to me. Heck, I hardly liked teenaged boys when I was a teenager, I certainly don't find them desirable now. Seriously, they picked Ed Westwick* over Clive Owen? It's got to be generational--the demographic for People must be ages 15-25 these days.
Readers, did the People picks totally miss the mark this year? Who belonged on the top ten in your opinion?
Days 12 & 13 of my 29-Day Giving Challenge: Visited grandma & brought her lunch, baked banana bread for my favorite mechanic & brought it in to the shop with the Momvan this morning.
*I've never even heard of this guy before yesterday.
