    I didn't know she had an accent. What kind?

    As for me, I can have whoever the heck I want and I don't have to check it out with anyone!

    Yep, single.

    1. Matthew McConnaughey
    2. Joaquin Phoenix
    3. James Denton
    4. Lance Armstrong
    5. Not sure of his name, but he plays the math professor on Numbers, as Rob Morrow's younger brother.

    Upon further reflection, I must add Antonio Banderas and Brad Pitt to the list along with Jon Bon Jovi.

    Escher, you're too funny! (Though this might fall into the TMI category...)

    My list would be:
    1. John Cusack- don't care who I have to fight off to get to him!
    2. Heath Ledger- "Knight's Tale" does it for me. I could just melt.
    3. Vin Diesel- slowly growing on me. That voice! Mmmmm mmmm!

    My DH also has that thing for Renee Zellweger, which I don't get either. (Especially after seeing her- IMO- hideousness at this year's Oscars.) But he also really likes Gillian Anderson (aka Scully from "X-Files").

    I totally agree to those and have to add Antonio Banderas's character in Desperado. I'm so hot into guys with long hair. But honestly I can't think of any real life people....mine are all characters in movies, LOL.

    DH says his would be Uma Thurman or Charlize Theron (sp?) I know everybody thinks Charlize is hot, but I just don't get it. Same for Scarlett Johansen. I know he thinks Elizabeth Hurley is a hottie, but he says he couldn't deal with the accent.

    This was certainly a hot topic today, eh?

    OK, me, in no particular order:

    Matthew McConnaughey
    The two guys from Without a Trace - Eric Close and I forget the other one's name
    Christopher Meloni (from Law & Order SVU)
    I don't know his real name, but Simon from Summerland (the jilted groom)
    It used to be Andy Garcia, but I think that might have waned a bit

    DH has mentioned Kirstie Alley before; I'll have to ask if there's anyone else.

    Jen, Clint? Really?

    Just one on my list: Bruce Springsteen.

    I used to think I had a thing for Dennis Quaid, but then I realized I really only had a thing for his character in "The Big Easy."

    Never discussed who DH's choices would be, but he did tell me once that when he was a little boy, he had a crush on Rosemary Clooney.

    Oh dear, this will reveal just how truly mixed up our relationship is (beyond the fact that I'm the one with the shaved head and Dr Love has the dreadlocks)...

    Dr Love's choice:
    Johnny Depp

    My choice:
    Sarah Michelle Gellar (when Buffy is being all tough and sexy, not soppy and romantic and whiny)

    Ahem.

    We have discussed the whole five male/female celebrity lists, and came up with those reasonably easily. But when push came to shove and we could only pick one name, those are who we chose.

    Don't really have a card like that, but if I did, I would probably put:

    Johnny Depp (Cry Baby sealed the deal for me)
    John Cusack
    Kieffer Sutherland
    Jared Leto

    In that order

    Rob is very tactful and refuses to name celebrities but will occasionally point out people he thinks are cute. Like Giada, although he hates her hands

    I'm not really into "lists" like this, but if I were, I'd have to put Ioan Gruffudd on it. What a Welsh hottie . (Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to be interested in women ). I suspect DH is onto me, since I bought him the latest Horatio Hornblower DVD series for Christmas, and was more interested in watching it than he was .

    Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen)

    Boromir, Odysseus (Sean Bean in LOTR and Troy, respectively)
    Achilles (Brad Pitt's character in Troy)
    Johnny Depp's character in Pirates of the Caribbean and Chocolat
    The cute guy in Princess Bride ("As you wish")

    Orlando is waaaay too young for me; besides, DD is besotted with him (actually, besotted with Legolas).

    Although I don't watch Lost (DD is addicted, so it's on in my house), I love Sawyer (the cute, somewhat nasty blond, right?) He looks alot like a former boyfriend of mine in college (sigh!)-- one of the ones who got away!
    Whoops! DD reminds me I forgot Hector (Eric Bana) of Troy!
    Sean, Eric and Brad, all hard-bodied up and in warrior costumes! Wish I'd been on that set! Sigh.

    [B]BarbaraL - I LOVE Sean Bean! Have you seen the DVD british series called "Sharpe" ...there are like 14-16 episodes (think short made for tv movies) where Sean Bean starts as a military runt and works his way up through the ranks. The show is a bit cheesey but yummyummyyummy sean bean!

    JeAnne, no, I've never heard of Sharpe. It's on DVD? Have to look for it. Sean is sooo cute!

    Having no DH, I don't need the get-out-of-marriage-free card, but if I did, these guys would be on my list:
    JT
    Hugh Jackman
    Sting
    Connie

    Maybe I'm projecting her characters too much. Actually, that's a truth for most thespians... do you have a crush on them, or the roles they play?...

    However, they tend to be typecast (Mrs. Liu comes to mind)so one can mistakenly transfer personalities they play to the actor/actress rather easily.

    Ultimately, since it's fantasy anyhow, it doesn't matter...

    Besides, Gwyneth has more than a passing resemblence to an ex I am still fond of...

    I like him too...when the ads for the show started coming out I was smitten but...isn't he the guy who was in Slums of Beverly Hills? He was so icky in that..not now though.

    Escher you reminded me of another: David Duchovney (sp?)

    And someone mentioned The Mummy...I love the guy with the long, dark hair and tattoos on his cheeks.

    Looks like Mr. Cusack will be quite busy - he'd be on my list, too.

    I still love Harrison Ford (not sure why- something about that man)
    and Al Pacino (I could watch the Godfather forever) I like confident men. DH is very confident about who he is and it comes across. I think that's the sexiest thing for a man, next to a great sense of humor.

    I also have a thing for Anthony Keidis, though I can't figure that one out, either. I don't find him attractive, just very sexy. Like he IS sex. Okay, there's my deep dark secret.
    Wouldn't you like to be a Susan, too?

    Actually, I think Mr Ducovney?'s X-Files role is pretty close to the real deal (paranormal fascination excluded)

    From what I've seen in interviews, the man possesses an exceptionally sharp mind. (and what a welcome relief from the Hollywood norm!)

    We have had this conversation lots at work. In fact, I had a recent change to my list and sent DH an email to give him the update, just in case.

    DH:

    1. Halle Berry
    2. Salma Hayek
    3. Janet Jackson
    4. Heather Graham
    5. Beyonce

    me:

    1. Johnny Depp
    2. Vin Diesel
    3. George Clooney
    4. The Rock
    5. The guy from The Mummy, not Brendan Fraser but the other guy...the Maji? And not in any other movie he's been in, especially Deuce Bigalow, just The Mummy.

    Honorable Mention: Ray Lewis from the Baltimore Ravens

    See why people don't quite believe his list? 7 of 9 supposedly doesn't even register! He claims he loves smart and elegant and big breasts aren't a big deal to him (thank goodness for me!)


    And I need to add that I wouldn't throw John Cusack out of bed for eating crackers, either. But I must ask: why are some many attracted to him? His face isn't that incredible (compared to some on this list). And I suspect he wears baggy clothes for a reason. Maybe one of his characters? I was late teens when I saw Say Anything - maybe that's what clinched it.

    This thread has provided some much-needed laughs this morning.

    1. John Cusack

    But while I am waiting in line...in no particular order...

    Denzel Washington
    Colin Firth
    Chris Noth
    Bradley Whitford (I am a WW geek)

    DH has always had a thing for Michelle Pfeiffer.

    DH asked me to edit my post but it's too late. When we discussed this on Friday evening, he informed me that Beyonce has fallen out of his favor (I know she'll be heartbroken ). He would like his new cards to be for Tara Reid and Lindsay Lohan - guess he's got some sort of new party girl fetish. He also insisted that I had to have someone on my list under 70, so I will add to mine Matthew Broderick and David Duchoveny (sp?). But, yes, MISSINDI, Clint's still number one.

    And to whomever questioned why we are all attracted to John Cusack (he gets an honorable mention from me, as well), I agree that Say Anything had a lot to do with it. When I was in high school, I named my dog Lloyd.

    I have this theory that many women of a certain age are waiting for JC to show up under their bedroom window with a boom box playing "In Your Eyes."

    Love him! Or should I say, I love his character Charlie on the show. The actor is David Krumholtz, and I still can't past the fact that he's the creepy guy who stabbed Carter and Lucy on ER. BTW, he looks MUCH better with long hair.

    This thread is great.

    Me:
    Johnny Depp (to quote my mom, he's dirty hot)
    Karl Urban (but only from his LOTR or Bourne Supremacy days, not Zena please!)
    Viggo (again with the dirty hot)
    Marat Safin (DF still wonders why I followed the Australian Open so closely on t.v.)

    Though I wouldn't throw John Cusack or George Clooney out of bed either.

    His list, though he claims he doesn't have a type (hah!):
    Kate Beckinsale
    Rachel Weisz
    Keira Knightley
    any of the Corrs sisters

    I happen to have an absolutely gorgeous, raven-haired cousin who's English. I haven't decided yet whether it's safe to invite her to our wedding!
