STOP the world, I want to get off.
Robert Pattinson has been voted the World’s Sexiest Man in the annual Glamour magazine poll, for the fourth year running.
Well for the love of all that is Holy. He’s a boy child! He plays a vampire in teenage movies. He was Cedric bloody Diggory for crying out loud! There’s no denying he’s a pretty looking young fella and I’ve nothing against the chap personally but frankly he should be arrested for crimes against eyebrows, not given an award. In time he may grow into his title, but right now I just don’t see it.
Is this all it takes to be found sexy these days? A half-decent jaw and a moody stare? A symmetrical face?
What about charisma? Beautiful manners? A sense of humour? And what, for that matter, about actual sex appeal? Someone you just look at and instantly feel a growl of want in your nether regions.
Ah for the love of God
It’s interesting to note that also included in the Top 50 Sexiest Men poll is Justin Bieber. Do you look at Justin Bieber and feel a growl of want in your nether regions? Well, do you?
If you want sexy how about we look a little closer to home at our very own Liam Neeson. Hollywood superstar, tall, good looking, good father with an accent that could melt butter. And if you were ever kidnapped on a foreign exchange programme, he’d more than likely rescue you before any real harm was done.
Apart from the physical aspects, Liam showed off his softer side this week on the Ellen show in the US by stripping down to a fluffy pink bathrobe and then to bright pink speedos for a charity dunking to raise money for breast cancer research.
There is NOTHING sexier than a man willing to make fun of himself for a good cause and nothing sexier than a good sport. Also, those speedos didn’t look half bad on him either.
This, THIS is sexy. Of course I’m all too aware that sexiness is subjective so I ask you readers – am I wrong?
Do you pant for Pattinson? Is he deserving of the title? And if you were a judge, who would your number one go to?
