I'm not a fan of Watson but I have zero shame in saying that she has grown into quite an attractive young lady. That doesn't make me a pedophile (in fact I abhor pedophiles) anymore than me saying that I think Daniel Radcliffe is a good looking young lad makes me a gay pedophile.

I've never been able to get over this obvious resemblance

Allow me to help, starting around 1:56:



Nah, you can still see his face.

Couldn't get any audio when I tried to watch the video on the previous page with Chris Pine and B.C. But I've seen Chris on American chat shows where he amusingly explains how some of his fans refer to themselves as "PineNuts" while Benjamin's fans refer to themselves as Cumberbitches, and Chris seemed genuinely embarrassed about it.

You deserve whatever negative association you're traumatized by for having admitted you've watched such bilge like "Major Payne."

And you call yourself a Holmes.

Turn in your deerstalker, you're fuckin' fired. lol

Prematurely naming Emma Watson might confirm ageing pedophiles were a big factor in the voting. .

What? Sorry, but... what? Watson is in her twenties for goodness sake. If this poll had been in the early days of the Potter movies when Watson was in her early teens and just into puberty then that it would be creepy for guys over 15 or so to vote for her. But as it is this is a quite ridiculous comment, the sort of thing the Daily mail would run.

I agree with this man.

There's a picture Grantland was using of Watson when writing about THE BLING RING this summer that's simply smoldering.

Thank goodness JJ Abrams cut out the Cumberbatch shower scene from Star Trek ID.

I'm surprised that Channing Tatum didn't make the list (I personally think he's just THIS far from being a bit porky...)

But Hugh Jackman (a man who shares my birthday!) will always make my list.

QUITE a lot wrong with this sentence, however others have already covered it so I shall just mutter under my breath for a few seconds...


I can't comment on the Manlist, but on the female side of things - yep - I get that....mostly....I still think there's room for Sigourney Weaver (yum) in there somewhere but hey, who am I? wink

Much as I like Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock I've seen him looking ... inappropriate in a few trailers or stills for other productions. This makes me think his star time will be short. Maybe I'm wrong. I hope so.

Interesting point. I think that when his non-Sherlock work is seen some years from now, it will be more of a way of remembering the time period of him in the role of *Holmes* and the other work he got during that time. Still, I think Ben will always find work in British TV if his film career doesn't pan out, though I hope it does.

In the U.S., there always seems to be a "Flavor of the Month" when it comes to UK talents. Jeremy Irons, Hugh Grant, etc. They find a measure of popularity here and then shortly afterwards they just sort of vanish, at least to those here.

Yes, Emma Watson still looks like a kid.

And where is Eva Green? Her absence completely delegitimizes this poll!


Yes, where is Eva Green? She is incredible sexy!

I showed the list to the Missus. She knew who most of the men are. Her response put it all into a very neat, tidy perspective. She said that even taking into account that they are celebrities and their looks are their bread and butter, she would never find any man sexy if he looked like he spent more time in front of a mirror than a woman. To her that's just not what a man is about.

Wow, she is awesome.

When I see a guy who has tweazed the brows and spent time having his legs and chest waxed I think he is more of a girl than a guy now. But apparently there are lots of women who like a man that looks this way. Somewhere in the last decade I think that male vanity metro-sexual thing got started. My thoughts on it that men cannot accept themselves for what they are, they want to be pretty like a girl.

Sir Ian McKellen has never been a great male beauty, but he's damned fine actor.

And thus it is so for Benedict Cumberbatch! His Khan was as polar opposite his Sherlock Homes as anyone could hope for. His versatility is astonishing.

It was? I agree that he's a good actor with a great voice, but Khan and Sherlock are not two roles of his I'd pick to demonstrate his versatility!

Jeez, reading this thread is depressing-what a bunch of knackered old farts you are!

EMPIRE is the UK's most popular film magazine-it isn't a PEOPLE type mag.

It is aimed at a relatively young readership.

Therefore the people that readership will pick are the up and comers and the flavour of the month types as they are the names flashing across their vacuous bland minds when they complete these polls-if you did one in six months it would be a completely new set of Barbie & Ken dolls.

No way is anyone going to vote for Sandra Bullock-she's nearly 50 FFS! And Sigourney Weaver? Jesus H Christ!

Try using a bit of perspective-it's a magazine poll by a bunch of kids for Pete's sake not the Judgement of Solomon.

Then name the ones you'd name rather than suggesting mine are lacking.

What you've just described -- with tactless abandon -- is what we've been getting in this forum the past couple of years. If it's not about something from the last 5 years, it isn't going to get discussed by more than a few.

And just so you know, the majority of us know fuck-all about British magazines and their readership.

However..."Sexiest Man Alive" is something all ages can relate to, ponder and, if necessary, comment negatively upon. And given that list, it's something to talk about!

Tsk-tsk us, if you must, but tsk-tsk back atcha!

She sure is. And I get exactly where she is coming from in this case. She doesn't find sexiness in overt "boyishness" in the same way that I don't find anything sexy about women who, deliberately or otherwise, emphasize their girlishness. I find women sexy, not girls. There will always be a perception in my mind that they are "unfinished" or "uncomplete" (if that's even a word). Girls, that is.

I asked her further about her impressions of Cumberbatch. I even had to remind her that he was Khan, because she found his performance in the role as rather "paint-by-numbers" (which I took to mean unmemorable). She thought he was a bland, "flavor-of-the-month"-looking man... not even eye-candy. I thought that was a little uncharitable, but most of her opinions are on the strong side in the first place.

@ Clark Wayne

Well I think that Empire is nice, but a pretty overrated mag, I have some copies I peruse occasionally, lots and lots of ads.

Perhaps the British sense of beauty is different? I think that the ladies list is better than the men list.

And if we want to go with British guys then I am surprised that Jim Sturgess is not in the top of the list, a very handsome fellow, and I enjoyed his pictures. And what about Ben Barnes? Very handsome and he has done some interesting roles, excusing him that terrible accent in Prince Caspian. Not that I am like that, but you know if I was...
