HUGH JACKMAN! It's About TIME!


I couldn't have been happier when People Magazine named handsome, Aussie hunk, Hugh Jackman their Sexiest Man of the Year. Had to just shake my head. What the heck took em so long??? He's been at the top of my list for YEARS. And what woman wouldn't love a guy who is in a longtime marriage and is a devoted family man on top of being a great actor, singer and dancer. Whether he's playing tough guy Wolverine in the X-Men movies or is a sensitive, romantic time traveler in movies like Kate and Leopold, you've just gotta drool.

Now I'm seriously looking forward to the new epic Australia which comes out next week. He stars with Nicole Kidman and when I saw the trailer for this, I added it to my 'must see' list.

Who would you have named this year? People always does a great job in picking the hottest of the hot but this year, they get extra kudos.


I love this particular pic with the longer hair. Don't you? Still it's hard to decide....he looks damn fine with shorter hair too. In the end it doesn't matter, hot is hot.
Who would you add to the Sexiest Man Alive list? And what about you guys out there? If People had a Sexiest Woman of the Year, who would get your vote?

I'm usually not a big Jackman fan but lately he's been looking better and better! For me, this year it would be Robert Pattinson. I'm just too into him right now. But I'm always a fan of Denzel. I think he's such a handsome man. Of course, Johnny Depp, Mat Damon, and there are a few others.

Regina Carlysle said...

Oh I like these picks too, Kell. Denzel...mmmmmm. I love him. He's one of those guys that just gets better as he ages.

Molly Daniels said...

I like the short hair Hugh better!

George Clooney still gets my vote! And Harrison Ford...gotta love him...

Oh. George. Thumpity thumpity. (That's my heart...lol)

I don't know...long haired Hugh is awfully yummy.

Gracen Miller said...

I think People got it right, Jack is sizzling hot. Just can't figure out why they didn't figure it out before now. He's been on my hot radar since X-Men first came out.

Regina, I like long-haired Jack best, but he's still hot with short hair. Like you said, hot is hot.

Otherwise, I'd have to pick one of Supernatural's hotties Jensen Ackles or Jared Padaleck, but since they're television actors, I don't see much hope in that ever happening. ;-)

Other personal favorities (not necessarily in this order): Christian Bale, Jon Bon Jovi (I'm an 80s girl, so forgive me), Keanu Reeves, Daniel Craig (the new 007), Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt (in Troy, he was yummylicious). That's all I can come up with, but I'm sure there are more.

This was the best choice they've ever made. I've loved Hugh forever now. He's SOOOO hot! My husband grumbles about it, but what can a girl do, right?

BethRe said...

I like the longer hair picture as well I'm happy with their choice

Hugh is worthy of the prize. I may not see him as "sexy" but I admire the man for his acting and devotion to his family.

Now, sexy ladies? Ooooo, long list. But for me, it would have to be a tie between models Ashton Gray and Betcee May. Yes, they are soft core models and yes both have been featured in several "mens magazines". The pictures I have of them however, their clothes are on and they are sexy.

But it's their eyes that do it for me. I'm a sucker for a great pair of eyes.

Regina Carlysle said...

Hi Gracen! I've wondered FOREVER why Hugh never got picked because he's just so damn yummy...also like the fact he's a great family man. The perfect package if you ask me.

Lately I've been drooling over some of the guys on TRUEBLOOD (HBO) Jason, Bill, Sam and OMG...ERIC. What a fine looking bunch of men. If you haven't checked that show out, you MUST. Especially if you love vamps.

Regina Carlysle said...

YAY Dr. Karl! I figured you'd chime in with a couple of picks. Beautiful ladies! My son is hot for Meagan Fox (Transformers)and my husband is a Salma Hayek fan from way back. Funny that he likes those hot latinas since he's married to a BLONDE. HA.

Remember years ago when the movie Desperado came out. While he ogled Salma, I was drooling over Antonio.

Regina Carlysle said...

You know, Beth, there was a portion of The Fountain with him BALD and he was still sexy as hell. LOL. But yeah, I loooove the long hair.

Regina Carlysle said...

I KNOW Anne. When he was announced I thought...WOW, I can't believe it's taken them this LONG. That's insane.

Dr. Karl E. Taylor said...

Nope, ours was "LadyHawke"

I drooled over Pfifer and my wife had a big crush on Rutger.

Hi--Hugh Jackman has been one of my very favorites--he's not classically handsome, he's...sensual, has a way of moving that's unique only to him--it's natural, you can't learn stuff like that. And he can be funny, too. AUSTRALIA is on my list for the holidays--I will treat myself!!Last week I saw APPALOOSA--I'm a Western fan and an Ed Harris fan, too. I saw the trailer for AUSTRALIA--FANTASTIC, and the music! He and Nicole Kidman look great together. Can't wait. Have a great Thanksgiving, Celia Yeary ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS, NOW AVAILABLE.

Regina Carlysle said...

Ahhhh Dr. Karl! I know what you mean. We were the same way. You know, M. Pfieffer is still just GORGEOUS, isn't she? The heroine in my older woman/younger man story was patterned after her.

Regina Carlysle said...

Hi Celia honey!!!! Happy almost Thanksgiving. I know what you mean about 'not classically handsome' but I've never gone for pretty boy features. I like men to look like MEN and not little boys. He is appealing on a number of levels and when I saw him in the Australia trailer I just thought...YUMMMMM.

I've loved Hugh Jackman for years and he well deserves this title, although this past year I've a serious love fest going on with Clive Owen. Ooooh yeah. *happy sigh* !!
