And if looking at hot pictures is something you like, click each actor's name.
Matt Damon - This guy's hot. Some might say he's Half-A-Hard-On hot. Others might not. From his boyish Good Will Hunting looks to his DAYUM!!! good looks in the Bourne series, Matt Damon has cornered the market on boy things I like. Toss in a Boston accent and I'd file for divorce today.
Heath Ledger - A recent rewatching of 10 Things I Hate About You reminded me just how good looking that cast was. Heath Ledger, Larisa Oleynik, Julia Stiles, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt! Not to mention Larry Miller! While lots of my friends (females mostly) raved about how pretty this guy was, and how pretty his (then) wife, Michelle Williams, was and how pretty their kids were (going to be), none of it ever resonated with me until a couple of years ago. Just in time to watch him cover his face in fake scars and white paint. Even then, he was still pretty.
Djimon Hounsou - The ONLY reason this guy wasn't on my first list is because he slipped my mind. Don't for one second think that he's on my second-string of famous hunks. The accent. The shaved head. The knowledge that he could kick your ass anytime he wanted (but wouldn't because he's classier than that). Just look at how he wears that scarf. Sure, this picture looks like a middle school photo, but that's one middle school photo that I'd go gay for.
Rock Hudson - He was gay. I'd go gay for him. Match made in heaven? Lord knows the only thing standing in the way of me and these other gentlemen is their respective heterosexuality, right? I'm sure Rock (or Rock-Hard Hudson, as I'd totally call him) would look past my slovenly ways, love of couch vegging, and the fact that I've never seen any of his movies. Because other than that, I'm a catch.
Casey Affleck - I was aware of Casey Affleck before I met my wife. He was a good actor but it's safe to say that my official Homeland Mancrush Level hovered around "Low." Little did I know that marrying a beautiful woman would lead to falling for a beautiful man. Constant exposure was the driving force here. It all started with her blog post praise and incessant swooning. From there came the movies. The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford, Gone Baby Gone, and recently, The Killer Inside Me put me face-to-face with this stunningly handsome Affleck. The next thing I knew, a new entrant to the He Shot Cyrus Hotties list as made his debut. I don't know if it says more about her or me, but my incessant swooning for Diane Lane hasn't made so mach as a dent on my wife's unwavering straightness.
Peter Sarsgaard - Last year at Sundance, my editor asked me to cover An Education, a movie I hadn't planned on watching based on my festival schedule. But when I heard that Nick Hornby (who penned "High Fidelity") had written the screenplay for Education, I gladly switched some things around. I'm glad I did because it turned out to be pretty good. I fell in love with Carey Mulligan months before most the world had the chance and also stirred up some feelings for a one Mr. Peter Sarsgaard. Most likely, I probably blamed all heart flutters on either Mulligan or high cholesterol but in retrospect, there's a chance that this fella had something to do with them.
So, there you have it. Six for gentlemen I'd go gay for.
