Who's On Your Laminated List?

So on Twitter today, we were talking about which celebrities we find attractive. DH and I always joke about who is on our "laminated list" because of the Friends episode where everyone chooses ten people they would be allowed to sleep with and it not be considered cheating. After much debate about whether or not to include Isabella Rossalini, Ross laminates his list, eliminating her because she's "international". At the end of the episode, she comes into the coffee shop and he's floored. He tells her she's on his list. She asks to see it. He finally has to admit she's not on it. She tells him that's too bad because he was on her random list of coffee shop guys to sleep with.
Though never put in writing, over the years my list has fluctuated with the times. And we would never really be allowed to sleep with anyone, but it's fun to talk about who we like. DH inevitably showed great skill with his retorts when I would tell him of my latest crush. Matthew McConaughey! He's gay. Jon Bon Jovi! He's gay. Whatev. I am clearly the more mature of us. He mentioned Natalie Portman. I said I thought she was very pretty. He mentioned Melissa Joan Hart. I... laughed. Anyway...

As of this moment in time, here are my Top 10 hunks:

1. Johnny Depp. I have always, always loved him. Ever since "21 Jump Street". There have been some less than great movies ("Crybaby" - really??), but some that I adore ("Benny & Joon", "Chocolat"). And he's just freakin' talented. The man played Jack the Ripper, and I still drool over him.

2. Jon Bon Jovi. First crush. Back when my walls were plastered with pictures of River Phoenix, Corey Haim and Kirk Cameron, the biggest poster was Jon. And he has just gotten hotter over the years. And Bon Jovi still rocks.

3. Shemar Moore. "Criminal Minds" hottie. 'Nuff said.

4. Harry Connick, Jr. That sweet southern accent melts my heart. And he's hilarious. Amazing in concert. Romantic. And he's not a bad actor. "Hope Floats" is a fun one.

5. Jason Statham. He's probably best known for "The Transporter" films, but he stole my heart in "Snatch" and "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels".

6. Will Smith. I thought he was cute when he and DJ Jazzy Jeff first hit the scene. My high school boyfriend kind of looked like him. (Which is weird, because he was white, but I'm not the only one who thought that.) But then he got more mature and exponentially hotter. One of my favorite movies of his is "Enemy of the State", and he's amazing in "The Pursuit of Happyness".

7. Edward Norton. Though not who I would consider traditionally hot, I love him because he's incredibly talented ("Primal Fear", "Fight Club") and funny. But if you never thought of him as sexy, check him out in "American History X". He is totally ripped in that movie, and it's thought-provoking, too.

8. Matthew Fox. I fell in love with him as big brother Charlie on "Party of Five". And then I got completely ensconced in the show "Lost". And via that show, I have him to thank for introducing me to #10.

9. Bono. He's so passionate and talented and cool. I have to say that though I was a U2 fan in the early 80's, I didn't start to have a crush on him until the early 90's.

10. Josh Holloway. Hello bad boy! Missing seeing him weekly already.

So how about you? Who's on your laminated list?

This if my first bloghop, so I'm hoping the linky works!

Good think Shemar was number 3 on your list. I would have had to hurt you.

I might just have to link up to this.

Natalie said...

I don't even know if I could come up with ten! But Ed Norton in American History X would definitely, DEFINITELY be on it!

I have to admit, I couldn't really rank them per se. Too much hotness to put it on a scale. :)

Jennifer said...

Johnny Depp and Will Smith have always been on my list too!

mommylebron said...

Ok, I totally left out Shemar Moore and Matthew Fox on my list! Love them both and also the guy who plays Charlie on Lost, he's a cutie too!

KLZ said...

I'm surprised by the connick but whatever floats your boat.

I have 3. Others are cute but I'm devoted to my 3. I choose not to divulge my list because I do not want to hear my hubs complain when he sees them

LOL! I have an old soul. I'm freakishly pale-skinned and should have been born in the late 1800s when that was all the rage. I would have loved the music of the Roaring '20s.

I think all you little girls are just afraid of men.

Real Men.

Like, the BDT.

Yes, you know, what I'm talking about.

Tremble at his name..

the Benecio.

Miss. Candy said...

Oooo Harry!!! I could add him to my list!!!

Ooh, Empress, now I do like Benecio. Loved him in "Traffic" and "Snatch".

Karinya, thanks so much for stopping by! Welcome! I'll be by to check out your blog today.

is it a good thing or bad thing that i wouldn't have ten?

or should i just make george clooney be #'s 1-9?

Not Just Another Jennifer said...

Liz, you can totally make George #1-9. He has been on my list in the past. Like, super past, preteen crush from "Facts of Life" days. And then, hunky, smoldering fantasies about him on ER.

Do you have a "type" of guy you go for? I don't really. If you look at the men I dated before I got married, only two of them looked slightly similar. Though in general, I go for the ol' tall, dark and handsome. But maybe that's why I have more than just a couple of guys on my list.

Natalie said...

Swoon! Numbers 4, 5, and 7...swoon again!

But Ed Norton has to be American History X (because damn!!)

Thank you for linking up and for promoting this my friend!
