Friday Five

I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty
being only skin-deep. That's deep enough.
What do you want - an adorable pancreas? ~ Jean Kerr


I'm starting what I hope will be an ongoing blog project: the Friday Five. It will be a list of my top five in random categories: some serious, but mostly silly. I have to admit to "borrowing" the idea from an old blog I ran across while looking for a photo of the gentleman above.


So, the theme of my inaugural Friday Five is:

The Five Most Handsome Male Celebrities!

1. George Clooney. He's got it all, in my book: he's handsome, funny, has the most soulful eyes, seems like a throwback to the charming movie stars of old -- and did I mention that he's handsome?? He's at the top of my list.


2. Johnny Depp. From serious roles to Jack Sparrow, I think he keeps getting better and better. And cuter and cuter!

3. Matthew McConaughey. How can anyone resist those blue eyes and those dimples, not to mention that soft southern drawl?

4. Tom Selleck. Ok, I know I'm dating myself with this one. I mean, Magnum P.I. isn't exactly on the list of current tv programs. But he stole my heart way back then, and keeps doing it today. He just gets better with age.

5. Russell Crowe. He's tall, dark and handsome - and has that cute little roll of curly hair across his forehead. I love the he-man roles he plays, but when he does comedy, my heart just melts.

So there's my first Friday Five list, just for the fun of it. I wish I could figure out how to upload more than one photo to each day's post. I found some really handsome shots of the other four men listed above. But one sigh-inducing picture of George will have to do!

Now - who would you add to the list? :-)


Until next time...

Well, I have to tell you, my "adorableness" meter has to include their heart. I think Brad Pitt not only is gorgeous but has a huge heart and does, like George, LOTS to promote social justice issues. Now to me, that's SEXY!

Well, my fav.is definitely Jack Nicholson. I love his sexy grin. I fell "in love"with him in Terms of Endearment, and when he was in Some thing's Gotta Give, I fell in love all over again! Another fav. is Brad Pitt, and of course I agree with you when it comes to George Clooney! Two oldies who I adored when they were alive (now I'm dating myself) are Gregory Peck and Laurence Olivia. I melted when he played Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights! From Judi L.

John Travolta, he has great eyes and he can dance and fly a plane and he is a very nice person.
I like Tom Selleck too Pattie. He like George has the whole package. So I am dating myself.Matthew McConaughy is just beyond sexy. I don't even care if he is nice.
Robert Redford. I know he is getting older but all he has to do is smile and he wouldn't have to give me a dime to have sex with him.
And last but not least I would take Tim McGraw the country singer! He is hot, hot, hot and he is nice too. In order of favorite and mostly sexy to? 1 Matt, 2 Tim, 3 John, 4 Tom, and 5 Robert.
Have a good weekend ladies!

Kathy said...

My fav isn't a movie star but he is a driver who does TV and commercials!!!
Mikey Waltrip!

Ready Maid said...

I am laughing as I answer your question, Patti, partly because I can hardly believe I'm answering it.

My man is George Eads, better known as Nick Stokes on CSI.

Cammy said...

Oh please. George, hands down. :)

Although...Matthew McConaughy has some kind of sexy abs.

But, no, George it is! And that's my final answer.

(Too much fun, Pattie!)

Well first and formost the late heath ledger (RIP) i think that was the first time I cried when a celebrity died... And of course Patrick Dempsy aka McDreamy!!!
Lizzie

Hugh Jackman is a fave of mine. His role diversity from Wolverine to the Boy from Oz is amazing! Plus the whole great dad thing is pretty hot! Always sort of had a crush on Kevin Costner too. :)

Holly said...

I think I'd have to add Brad Pitt... and Justin Chambers from Grey's Anatomy :)

Sunny said...

George Clooney has my vote hands down - I've had a crush on him since his "Facts of Life" Days! LOL - really fell in love with him during ER and now enjoy many of his movies (but not all). He is gorgeous!

Lora said...

This is probably passe - but I've always thought Robert Redford was pretty sexy.

But George Clooney - he's tops on my list!

Ashton Kutcher!!!!
Jake Gyllenhal!!!
John Mayer

This is fun. I look forward to the Friday Fives!

Hanlie said...

I'm filching that for next Friday! But let me tell you, I'm with you on 3 of those 5!

Heather said...

well johnny depp is #1 for me, but I would add Brad Pitt as soem others have. He is so hot, but also has done a lot with this celebrity status and I thik that is important as well. he seems to be a good father as well to his children.

jan in nagasaki said...

you can immediately guesstimate ages of all the people here...

I must totally agree with your list except that sadly where do we put brad...and though robert redford is starting to look old... he looked really good just a few years back.

hello and glad I found your blog!

Scale Junkie said...

This is tough for me because I've never been a celebrity watcher.

Matthew McConaughy has made me laugh and his abs aren't bad, Russell Crowe took me on an sailing adventure in Master and Commander.

I know, I'm boring. I'd rather look at my husband LOL

RunningNan said...

Michael Vartan... Y U M M Y

Exuberant Color said...

I finally thought of the name of the movie, "Sweet Alabama" and his name is Josh Lucas. He has the cutest smile. I've seen him in another movie since and can't wait to see more.

Exuberant Color said...

Make that movie title "Sweet HOME Alabama". I knew something was wrong when I typed that in the previous comment.

Okay, here is my five:

Kurt Russell
Orlando Bloom
Hugh Jackman
Viggo Mortensen
Wentworth Miller

Erin said...

I'm totally for any celebrity with an accent...I married a guy with an accent, it's just too sexy.

SO I'd have to agree with Russell Crowe and how bout Dr. Kovac from E.R. Goran Visnjic.

Kristi said...

I agree with Lizzie, Patrick Dempsey, hey they call him Mcdreamy, need I say more?

I love a man with rugged good looks: Viggo Mortensen
