This is from a poll taken in the U.K. I get why a lot of these people were picked, but Cumberbatch as sexiest man? That confuses me. I think he is an excellent actor and a very unique looking man, but for some reason, at this point in my life, I don’t find him really sexy compared to the others guys. Different strokes, I guess. He stated he was pretty surprised too. This is just a fun, silly list.
Top 10 Sexiest Men
1. Benedict Cumberbatch 2. Tom Hiddleston 3. Henry Cavill 4. Ryan Gosling 5. Robert Downey Jr 6. Chris Hemsworth 7. Robert Pattinson 8. Michael Fassbender 9. Hugh Jackman 10. Bradley Cooper
I don't want to go off-topic, but I don't find many of the women on the list to be particularly head-turning. Not meant as an insult, just that I wouldn't stare, or look twice at them, if I saw them on the street --- other than their being celebrities, that is. I have odd tastes, I know....
Of course, I'd imagine it's difficult to submit to such a poll in the first place. If someone asked my for my 10 sexiest people alive, I'd immediately reinterpret that as 10 sexiest people I can imagine, at least 8 or 9 of whom would be actual acquaintances rather than celebrities. If I had to rank 10 sexiest actors or actresses, unless I put more time into it than I care to, it'd probably be a pretty useless list!
PhilSon, we must get you to some movies. (Or some DVDs.) Cumberbatch, Fassbender and Hemsworth are all good actors. If I picked sexiest man, I'd pick Hemsworth after seeing him in Thor, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Rush. I think Fassbender may be our next Burton or Olivier. You might rent Jane Eyre where he plays a great Rochester. I'm old but I still try to see some good movies. At least try some DVDs.
