Pajiba's 10 Sexiest People -- The Celebrities You'd Most Like to Bang

Pajiba's Guide to What's Good for You / Dustin Rowles

Guides | May 12, 2007 | Comments ()


Pajiba is not the sort of outlet, like People or Us or Maxim, that you’d come to seeking a list of the sexiest, hottest, or most beautiful people in the world, which is why I decided to put this list together — to feature celebrities that the smarter, more subversive among us might find doable. And with a site like this one, in addition to physical appeal, an actor’s body of work, the characters he or she has played, or even public persona plays into a celebrity’s sexual appeal — it’s not all about chiseled abs, a nice rack, or an ass that won’t quit, which means that we have be the only “Sexiest List” you can read anymore that doesn’t include Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Jude Law, Mathew McConaughey, ScarJo, or Patrick Dempsey. It’s kind of cool — we can play in the shallow end of the pool, but we don’t have to wear a string bikini or a Speedo.

So, in coming up with Pajiba’s Celebrities You’d Most Like to Bang, I used this week’s comment diversion — one of our most popular — and tallied up the mentions. From there, I adjusted the list, taking off some of the more conventional choices (Angelina Jolie, Clive Owen, George Clooney) and arranged the top 10 to suit what I imagine, anyway, is the overall “Pajiba aesthetic,” simply so that our list wouldn’t share too much in common with People magazine’s (where — blech — Drew Barrymore topped this year). Remarkably, in looking over the comments, I learned that our readers (or at least commenters) — for the most part — are not only more intelligent than your average pop-culture junkie, but we seem to skew female, gay, and bi-curious, which is both awesome and somewhat surprising (I thought) given the makeup of the staff. At any rate, the list is ordered accordingly. And before you start kvetching, remember this: It’s your list — I’m only arranging it for you. I’ll also ask that you make allowances for my heterosexuality — I’m straight and completely comfortable with my sexuality, but it doesn’t mean I’m particular adept (or altogether at ease) with writing about a male celebrities’ fuckability factor. But, whatever — it’s a puff piece for shits and giggles, anyway.

Before we hit the top 10, here are your honorable mentions: Ryan Reynolds (who I was really hoping would jump a notch), Gael Garcia Bernal, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kate Winslet, and Monica Bellucci. And with those out of the way, let’s begin.

paulrudd.jpg 10. Paul Rudd: It’s hard to say when Paul Rudd really turned a corner in his career; I doubt he was melting a lot of panties during his Clueless days, and he spent the next seven or eight years stumbling around in relative obscurity, with a starring turn in The Object of My Affection opposite Jennifer Aniston and, in a terrible bit of casting, as Wally Worthington in Cider House Rules. He tried it a couple of times, but he’s just not true leading-man material, which has worked to his advantage of late. I think that Rudd really joined the cool-kids club, however, with his role in Wet Hot American Summer, and since then his appeal has increased exponentially, thanks to a stint on “Friends” and a fun role in Anchorman. But it was The 40-Year-Old Virgin that pushed him over the top, allowing him to join, full-on, the Apatow/Rogen gang. And it’s very likely he’ll star in this summer’s best comedy, Knocked Up, in addition to a number of other bit roles, including this weekend’s The Ex, last night’s episode of “Veronica Mars” (garnering bonus points), and The Ten. Sadly, he’s trying out the leading-man thing again later this summer, opposite Michelle Pfeiffer, in I Could Never Be Your Woman. If guys can have their plain Jane fantasies, women can have theirs, too — and Rudd is the ideal celebrity to fulfill that role. He’s cuddly, he’s charming, but he seems totally approachable — and an ideal drinking buddy, to boot.

2003-january-simon-pegg.jpg9. Simon Pegg — Simon Pegg, in my mind, fits the Pajiba “aesthetic” to a T. I think we can all admit that he’s not a conventionally attractive dude — pasty, goofy-looking, thin hair, mall-cop moustache — but he’s cool, and not in an easygoing Clooney way but in that lovably geeky kind of way. Indeed, if Bruce Willis changed the hero dynamic in Die Hard from ripped, musclebound dumb guy to your average blue-collar superman, Simon Pegg is taking it a step further; muscles and bravado are no longer the weapon of choice — it’s an encyclopedic knowledge of genre films and an ability to kill a zombie with an LP. Pegg started as a television actor in England, starring in Spaced, a show he created and co-wrote, which also featured his best friend, Nick Frost. The duo worked again in Shaun of the Dead, arguably the best non-Romero zombie film of all time, and — currently in theaters — Hot Fuzz, which Dan described as, “a gleeful, frenetic, blood-soaked, hilarious love letter to the swaggering action films of the past 20 years.” I don’t know if he can keep his stellar track record intact, however, as he’s set to star in two flicks that neither written by him nor featuring Nick Frost — Run, Fat Boy, Run, written by Michael Ian Black and directed by David Schwimmer, of all people, and How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, a decent novel adapted for the big screen. However, Pegg and Frost do have another television show in the works — they will write, direct, and star in “La Triviata,” based on this amazing premise: A sitcom about a Pub Quiz Bowl team. Best of all, Simon Pegg is not just an ideal lay, but the kind of guy who’d cuddle with you afterwards while watching Dawn of the Dead.

natalie_portman3.jpg 8. Natalie Portman — Granted, Natalie Portman is just as likely to show up on People magazine’s most beautiful list as she is here, but mainstream audiences love her for different reasons: Star Wars. We like her for daring to shave her head in V for Vendetta, for Beautiful Girls (oh shut it — it wasn’t sexual thing), and for taking on a variety of film roles, most of them at least somewhat interesting and challenging. However, I do think our readership is split on Garden State; she’s either the new definition of the kind of girl hipsters seek out — this generation’s female Cusack — or she’s singularly responsible for the run of obnoxiously quirky female characters we’re going to be hit with for the next decade. And personally, while I think she’s one of the better actresses in Hollywood (even more so for not allowing herself to morph into paparazzi fodder), she’s like Keri Russell or Audrey Hepburn: Incredibly beautiful in an entirely nonsexual way, which I think Closer proved (I kept praying for her mother to come out and put a goddamn robe on her). And rather than turn her Star Wars gig into a lucrative career doing bad romantic comedies, Portman is smart enough to look for longevity. In the next year, she’ll star in Zach Helm’s Stranger than Fiction follow-up, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium; opposite Scarlett Johansson in The Other Boleyn Girl; and, best of all, Wes Anderson’s next flick, The Darjeeling Limited. And if you want to hear her talk dirty, you need only rewatch the best SNL Digital Short ever.

jon_stewart_01.jpg 7. Jon Stewart — Stewart is this generation’s Letterman and Walter Cronkite rolled into one, one of the coolest guys on the planet, and the only celebrity who could completely lose his temper on television and come off as the sane one. As surveys have borne out, people who watch Jon Stewart are actually smarter than the rest of the populace and a huge number of Americans get their news from Stewart, who filters all the bullshit out and delivers more truth in a single joke than a half-hour newscast on any of the networks. And yeah — he’s totally good-looking, mostly in a suit — t-shirts and those goddamn leather jackets he used to wear bring out the insecure dork within, which is great in a certain context, but the power suit is the appropriate attire for a guy who — along with Stephen Colbert — is basically taking on the entire American political system. He’s not rugged or smoldering or particularly charismatic — he’s a mensch, a man who can speak truth to power, but who also delivers the best self-deprecating lines in the business (which might make lovemaking a little awkward). He’s like Woody Allen, only cool … and good-looking … and funny … and manages to say something of substance every once in a while. And he probably has the sexiest smirk in the land. And as one commenter noted, a lot of you actually know Stewart better than you know your own boyfriends — and as Michael Bolton once sang so proudly, “How can we be lovers if we can’t be friends?”

MaggieGyllenhaal-1-300.jpg 6. Maggie Gyllenhaal — Gyllenhaal happened to be number two on my list, which Ms. Pajiba-hyphenate suggested looked like a list of women who would work in a book store if they weren’t celebrities. Amen to bookstore chicks — and Maggie certainly fits the profile. She’s not conventionally hot, at least by Hollywood standards; she’s not rail-thin, there’s nothing outrageously angular about her, and she doesn’t have a slammin’ body, as the kids like to say. In fact, in certain pictures at certain angles, you can even catch the slight makings of a double chin. No matter, though — she’s got just about the most amazing blue eyes in the history of blue eyes, and she’s totally nailed that Mary Ann fantasy thing. Oh, and yeah — she’s one of the few actresses who can dominate with submissiveness, as she did in Secretary, which — let’s just admit — was porn for the smart, indie crowd. And nary an actress has taken on as many rich roles as she has in the last five years: Adaptation, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, Happy Endings, SherryBaby, and Stranger than Fiction (“Get bent, tax man!”), and she’s not even freakin’ 30 yet. Bonus: she’s married to the supercool Peter Sarsgaard, who several of you mentioned would make quite the threesome. It looks like she’s taken some time off to have a child, but she returns next summer in The Dark Knight, taking over the Rachel Dawes role that Katie Holmes thankfully left behind. And who wouldn’t want to sleep with Batman’s girlfriend?

john_krasinski.jpg5. John Krasinski — I hope to hell that Krasinski is a lasting object of your collective slavering. He’s not really made much of a splash in film yet (with bit roles in Jarhead, The Holiday, Dreamgirls, etc.), and his next film, License to Wed, is not the best way to start out in a feature role. But for now, I think everyone’s happy enough that he’s Jim Halpert and that he managed to do much, much justice to the role that Martin Freeman popularized in the original “The Office.” No one (no one) looks at the camera as well as he does, and that whole Jim-and-Pam thing is the only meaningful romance on television anymore — shows today gets too anxious to pair everyone up, killing all the sexual tension that makes the Jim/Pam saga so heartening, so fun to watch, and so very authentic. While the rest of “The Office” storylines satirize the workplace, there’s nothing satirical about the slow-burning relationship — I can only hope the show-runners can keep it up for a few more years and end the show as well as Ricky Gervais did. But in addition to the whole goofball awkwardness, Krasinski is also decent-looking guy in that floppy-haired attainable kind of way, though taking the Paul Rudd path to stardom may be his best bet (best-friend roles would seem to suit Krasinski). But, at least in my estimation, what makes Krasinski so attractive is his intelligence. He grew up (along with B.J. Novak) in the smartest area in the country, he graduated Brown, and — so far — he’s the only guy anywhere brave enough to attempt to adapt the work of David Foster Wallace for the big screen. Indeed, later this year, he will write, direct, and star in Brief Interviews with Hideous Men opposite the ridiculously cute Julianne Nicholson, as well as his current television girlfriend, Rashida Jones. And if that doesn’t work out for him, he’s also co-starring with George Clooney in Leatherheads, which Clooney is directing. But as long as he’s in “The Office,” it doesn’t really matter what else he does. Beware, though: If you fuck Jim Halpert, you’ll have Pam to contend with.

ryangosling.jpg4. Ryan Gosling — Man, I like Gosling. I don’t often rave about films, but I dug the living hell out of Half Nelson and thought that Gosling turned in the best performance of the last couple of years. Gosling is one of those guys who meandered around for a few years livening up films that had no business being livened up (Murder by Numbers, The United States of Leland) after a long career as a child actor (“Goosebumps,” “Breaker High”). It looked like his career might’ve taken off after the godawful The Notebook, and I’m still leery — Gosling is an unbelievable actor, but I get the feeling that in a year or two, he’ll leave us and enter the A-list and start cashing in on big-budget shit films. But for now, we can take solace in knowing that the masses haven’t really adopted him yet, so his next three projects are still relatively small — in Lars and the Real Girl, he’ll play a delusional guy who strikes up a relationship with a doll on the Internet (sounds silly, but I’m guessing Gosling will nail the whole delusional-guy thing); The Other Side is a fantasy film that stars, among others, Jason Lee, Lili Taylor, Jim Broadbent, and Eddie Izzard (though Brittany Murphy and Eddie Griffin stick out amongst that cast); and in 2008, he co-stars with Tom freakin’ Waits in The Good Heart, about a bartender who takes a homeless man under his wing. As far as the guy’s sexual attraction goes — well, I don’t see it when he’s clean-shaven; he looks a little prepubescent, if you ask me. But I totally see it when he dons the facial hair, along with those infectious idiosyncrasies and that sort of heart-warming grin he’s got going on. And if you could sleep with pure acting talent, Gosling would probably be the best lay to come along in a decade.



salmahayek2.jpg3. Salma Hayek — Salma Hayek is sort of the outlier amongst the 10 here — she doesn’t have a lot of acting talent, she doesn’t take particularly adventurous roles (Frida notwithstanding) and there’s nothing subversive about her. But what is cool about Salma is that just as many women, it seems, would be happy to sleep with her as men. She exudes total sex appeal — full-figured voluptuousness, which she displayed so very well in Desperado, Ask the Dust, and Once upon a Time in Mexico. She’s a modern pinup girl without a hint of Pamela Anderson-style trashiness. Just pure unadulterated sex, which actually makes her an ideal choice on a freebie list — the others on the top 10 you may sleep with because of something besides sexual attraction, which is emotionally cheating, in a way. With Salma Hayek, it’s no-strings-attached ugly-bumping. Just lust. Pure and simple. Unfortunately, now that she’s ruled out a return to “Ugly Betty,” you’re going to be hard pressed finding her in theaters for a while, though later this year she does play a stripper (!) in Keep Coming Back, a film directed by William H. Macy. Otherwise, she’s got no new projects on tap until 2009’s Spanish-language La Banda. My suggestion: Watch Desperado again.

christian_bale_98.jpg 2. Christian Bale — Now, this guy is a total badass. He’s got the simmering, smoldering mysterious thing going on, but he’s also one of the better character actors around — no, the best around, capable of inhabiting a role better than any leading man. Hell, if he wanted to play a ham sandwich, he could — and you’d fucking believe him, by damn. I mean, lookit: He resurrected the freakin’ Batman franchise from the dead, and that’s not even his most notable accomplishment — that would be his brilliant role as Patrick Bateman, indelibly creating one of the iconic cinematic characters of this generation by transforming himself into one of the iconic literary characters from the last generation. And that’s without even mentioning The Machinist, a role that Bale lost 432 pounds to play. 432 pounds! And you’d still fuck him. And then he had to put 532 pounds back on, lose 300 of it, and add 49 pounds of solid muscle to play Batman. Plus, have you heard this guy’s real accent? It’s mangled and incoherent, which makes me appreciate his acting roles all the more. EW named the guy one of the “Top Eight Most Powerful Cult Figures” in the last decade, and that status probably would’ve pushed him to number one on this list, were it not for the mainstream success he found with Batman, which ever-so-slightly takes away from his fuckability factor, at least on a site like this. Of course, he’s also notoriously private — you won’t see him in the gossip rags — which makes him a safe bet to put on your Freebie list because you don’t have a shot in hell (sorry). But my biggest fear is that the Batman franchise will occupy so much of his time that he won’t be able to devote himself to other roles, like the amazing The Prestige. Thankfully, he does have a couple of projects coming up, including I’m Not There, in which he plays Bob Dylan, Warner Herzog’s Rescue Dawn, which arrives later this summer, and 3:10 to Yuma, in which he stars opposite Russell Crowe. And a Russell/Christian threesome? Ouch.

nathan.jpg 1.Nathan Fillion — I’ll concede this: Christian Bale actually merited more mentions on the freebie list, but Nathan Fillion … well, goddamnit, when I think of “Pajiba,” he’s one of the first names that jumps into my head (after “Arrested Development”). I feel like you folks have a sense of ownership over the guy — not quite as much as the Whedon people, but still, he’s like the unofficial Pajiba mascot (if you’re into shtupping mascots), the site’s personification, if you will: A guy that’s known in certain circles, but — amongst the mainstream — he’s an obscure actor, still remembered mostly as the dude from “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place” (he played the pizza place) if he’s even remembered at all. He’s not a nerd, nor a geek, nor a dork, but he’s the nerd/geek/dork sex symbol, you know? He can play the lead in a fanboy movie while maintaining fanboy detachment — he’s cool, but he’s not, you know, Clooney or Depp. He’s also a genre-crosser. He can do the dimwit (“Two Guys and a Girl”) dry wit (Slither), twisted villain (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), befuddled charmer (Waitress), droll action hero (“Firefly”), or charismatic leading man (Serenity). He can do TV or movies. He’s like this generation’s Harrison Ford, but there aren’t any goddamn Indiana Jones films (and how great a Han Solo would he have been?) for him to star in, so he’s relegated to a bad Fox show that is cancelled after three episodes. Because nobody appreciates this guy — and why the hell not? Worst of all: He’s got nothing in the pipeline. Nothing! Why won’t anyone hire him? Lookit: I don’t even like sci-fi that much (“Firefly”/Serenity being the exception), but I think this guy is the coolest motherfucker on the planet. There’s no reason in the world he can’t do traditional action flicks or romantic comedies or even another ensemble movie/show. And hell, I’d kill to be his wingman for a night — he’s the ultimate Everyman but, for the ladies, completely bangable, too — as long, it would seem, as you go on a few dates first (Christian Bale, maybe even Paul Rudd, might go for a one-night stand, but this guy’s got scruples — he’s Canadian, for God’s sake). He can be bluster and sarcasm, but underneath it all, you know he’s a softie — and a handsome man, at that. Indeed, he’d treat you like a lady while you were cheating on your husband.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why Nathan Fillion is Pajiba’s 2007 Sexiest Man of the Year.

Great list!

Also I’ve met Nathan Fillion and the sexiness and charisma he has on screen. Take that and triple it.

Posted by: Sonia at May 9, 2007 2:47 PM

Mmmmmmmmm, good list.

Posted by: b at May 9, 2007 2:48 PM

Yes, I must agree with much of this list. I thought Christian Bale was bang-worthy when I saw him in Little Women all those years ago. Or is that bang-able?

I’m also extremely happy to see Paul Rudd on this list. He may not be leading man material, but he so talented, and an adorable boy next door type.

Posted by: Brie at May 9, 2007 2:52 PM

best. list. ever. i think i just pajiba-ed myself…

Posted by: kt at May 9, 2007 2:55 PM

Maggie and Christian and Jon, oh my!

But, seriously, Prestige sucked. Sucked hard, fuzzy malt balls. The last ten minutes made me want to run my brain through the film… wheely…splicey thingy.

Amen to Salma.

Fan-fucking-tastic list, and exactly what I would expect from us Pajibites.

I’ll need a cold shower and a good twenty minutes staring at a naked photo of Dick Cheney before my ardor cools.

did any of you see the episode of veronica mars yesterday with paul rudd guest starring? it was amazing…great, clever show + even greater actors= ultimate in TV enjoyment (something that is far too rare these days)

Posted by: jules at May 9, 2007 3:30 PM

LOVE LOVE LOVE this list! I admit I never submitted my own, possible because I was embarrassed that I couldn’t come up with 5 people (I’m picky, hee!).

My only nit to pick: Maggie Gyllenhaal hasn’t yet married Peter Sarsgaard (too many vowels). So I guess that could boost her up the list a little.

Posted by: Kolby at May 9, 2007 3:33 PM

Great list, I was getting more excited as I approached number one. I just love your writing Dustin. However, I did think Natalie Portman was pretty sexually attractive in Closer.

Posted by: Gaby at May 9, 2007 3:34 PM

Good list. Salma Hayek is so still the hotness considering her age.

However, methinks I must take issue with your platonic take on Natalie Portman. “Incredibly beautiful in an entirely nonsexual way…” Sorry, but an attractive girl + a brain = double hotttness.

Posted by: DW at May 9, 2007 3:35 PM

I’ve met Nathan Fillion and the sexiness and charisma he has on screen. Take that and triple it.

Shut up shut up shut UP before I lose my mind, leave my husband and set out for California on foot!

Many thanks, Dustin, for all the collating and stuff you had to do to come up with this list. Also thanks for including the piccies! Yummy.

Posted by: Jerce at May 9, 2007 3:40 PM

Most excellent list! More than the list, though, I loved the explanations. It’s like you reached into my mind and put all my thoughts into a coherent, eloquent paragraph. Bravo.

Posted by: stardust savant at May 9, 2007 3:41 PM

AWESOME list. I mean, AWESOME. Granted, there may not have been enough of my beloved older British actor gentleman, but awesome list.

Okay, so I don’t get the Nathan Fillion thing, but I can give you one or two, and please, stick in there some mention about Gosling’s short stint as a young Kevin Sorbo in “Young Hercules” to which I admit fully to watching with such dedication. I’m not so much a Salma Hayek fan, but hell, I loved her in Dogma, and I enjoy watching her more than some of the other Spanish/Latina actresses out there (cough her pal Penelope Cruz).

I’m a bit surprised you didn’t put, say, Christina Ricci on here, but you know, I assume she must have just missed the cut. Would you consider extending the list just a little? And maybe adding James McAvoy, one attractive wee Scotsman with charm and insight of character and most important talent and distaste for the Hollywood game?

Gosh, this is a long comment, but I would like to say that Rudd is easily my FAVORITE part of Knocked Up. He’s such a damn scene stealer and plays the character to perfection. He also made me laugh so much, even more than the Asian doctor who reminded me (and all my friends) of this one kid I know in med school.

Posted by: annie at May 9, 2007 3:46 PM

Even though I do love John Krasinski, Martin Freeman will always be the best at starin’ down a camera. Jim/Dwight conflicts are hilarious, but Tim/Gareth ones are unbeatable!

Once again, I bow down to the awesomeness which is Pajiba. GREAT freakin’ list!!!

Posted by: dammitjanet at May 9, 2007 4:01 PM

Rose, thanks for your comment. I am pleased to know that someone like you won’t be polluting the gene pool with anyone on this list. Perez Hilton called - he wants his commenter back.

Seriously, though, I can’t look at pictures like that of Paul Rudd at work - what do you people think I am, a machine? YOW.ZERS. And FYI - Clueless is exactly when he started melting my panties. But since 40-Year-Old Virgin, he can offer me a huge box of porn ANY day.

Posted by: Tammy at May 9, 2007 4:04 PM

That picture of Christian Bale is amazing. Curses on him for wearing his wedding ring so obviously in the pic because otherwise it would be my new screensaver. I’m having a difficult time getting back to work now, although Julie helped with the mere mention of Cheney.

Posted by: PaddyDog at May 9, 2007 4:08 PM

Tammy: Bwah!!

Posted by: Julie at May 9, 2007 4:09 PM

I know some of my men didn’t make the list, but as I kept scrolling down, with bated breath, I KNEW Christian Bale had to be near the top. And Pajiba, once again, you did not disappoint. He is SO frikkin H.O.T. Who knew that when I watched Empire of the Sun waaaaaay back when that the little boy in it would be this delicious? Mmmmm mmmmm mmmm…..*drool*

Ahem. Sorry. Just can’t help myself.

Posted by: JKo at May 9, 2007 4:10 PM

Personally, I don’t see Christian Bale being second to anyone. Good to see the diversity of Pajiba’s sexual palate.

Posted by: Lex D at May 9, 2007 4:11 PM

Thank for SIMON PEGG! So totally hot. Love, love, love him especially Spaced.

Also for Ryan Gosling, seriously did anyone else see him in those tight man-pants on Ellen? How could one not look at that ass?

Posted by: twilly at May 9, 2007 4:15 PM

this list is amazingly perfect.

Posted by: szs at May 9, 2007 4:16 PM

I didn’t post a list so perhaps I have no place commenting here, and I’m probably going to get on some people’s bad sides by putting this out there, but Geal’s honorable mention aside, I am surprised the pajiban’s prefer their men so…caucasian.

Posted by: missmle at May 9, 2007 4:19 PM

Missmle, you have a point, but out of the 400+ comments on the freebie post, there were several mentions of non-whites like Gael Garcia Bernal, Taye Diggs, Blair Underwood, etc.

Honestly, I don’t think its a racial thing, I think its more of a Pajiban propensity for self-deprecating dorks. And not one does that like pasty white dudes. Let’s face it, gorgeous he might be, but I can’t ever imagine a scenario in which you can call Taye Diggs a dork. He’s just too freakin smooth.

And as a confirmed “hot dork” lover, Nathan Fillion was my #1 over on the other post. Natch.

Posted by: MG at May 9, 2007 4:30 PM

Sorry, had to jump back in because I forgot to comment on that selection of Drew Barrymore in People Magazine (shut up! I had a dentist’s appointment). How much do we think her publicist had to pay for that one? I was shocked to find her on the list at all let alone number one? I mean seriously, we are talking about a very average looking woman WHEN she’s all done up. This is not typical female resentment talking here. I appreciate a beautiful, sexy woman when the words “beauty” and “sexy” are appropriate. But Drew Barrymore? I always assumed her appeal (since she can’t act) was that she looks like the less attractive sister of the ordinary girl next door. In what universe does she qualify as one of the world’s most beautiful people? Hell, this selection sets the bar so low, the other women on the list must be seriously pissed off.

Posted by: PaddyDog at May 9, 2007 4:36 PM

You should TOTALLY follow this up with Pajiba’s Top 10 Ugliest…Most Untalented…Overrated…

Well, you get the picture.

Great job! These are some sexy people!

Posted by: MRod at May 9, 2007 4:41 PM

Clever and right in many spots, but…..Salon did it a few months ago with equally good results - Colbert was their #1— Makes your ‘alternative’ list a little behind the other ‘alternative’ lists……

Posted by: K dock at May 9, 2007 4:45 PM

While I must agree that Natalie Portman is absolutely beautiful… she has no sex appeal whatsoever in my book. She is like a really lovely young girl - maybe I’ve never been able to disassociate her from Beautiful Girls. I dunno.

I’m disappointed at the lack of Rachel Weisz love. But psyched that Maggie G made the list, because I too have a thing for bookstore girls.

How can you not?

Posted by: TK at May 9, 2007 4:47 PM

WTF? Was the ratio of men to women on the lists really that uneven?

Posted by: BlackWolf at May 9, 2007 4:51 PM

Simon Pegg was in “Big Nothing” with David Schwimmer, so maybe that explains him as the director of Pegg’s new movie.

But really, I thought “Big Nothing” already kinda ruined his stellar track record.

Allow me to preface this by saying that I have been a fan of Natalie Portman since The Professional, and find her stunningly beautiful, and I’ll see pretty much anything she’s in, including Where the Heart Is.

But: How can she be on a list comprised of the sexiest celebrities ever, when even you, Dustin, [correctly] note that she’s beautiful in an entirely nonsexual way?

She’s stunning, but she’s not at all sexy. I demand a recount. A nice replacement for her might be, say, PETER SAARSGARD.

(Additionally and while I’m here, it appears that you might have a teeny little crush for Jon Stewart. Just sayin’.)

I’m a little irritated that I didn’t make two lists the other day - one for just balls-out sex appeal, and another for hot and sexy brains. Stewart and Colbert would’ve been at the top of that second list. :(

(*ON Jon Stewart, I mean. Dammit.)

Posted by: juliagulia at May 9, 2007 5:06 PM

Salma Hayek? And Kate Winslet only gets an honorable mention? Oh well, guess I should’ve posted on the freebies one.

Of course, my no. 1 freebie is a really odd one: Sarah Vowell. What can I say? I like the smart, silly, slightly dorky former band geeks. And my wife is cool with it. So Sarah, if you’re out there, give me a call.

Posted by: Armando at May 9, 2007 5:07 PM

Sorry for the double post, but I realize I’m coming across as a whiner above. It’s a cool list, really. (I have to agree with Miss. Gylenhall. Or is that Mrs. Sarsgaard now?)

At first I was like WTF?? Christian is not number one?? Then I saw Nathan and I have to give tou guys 500 kudos. I’m ashamed because he’s so shamelessly ignored and misused (I’m talking to you fuckheads at FOX) but he never even entered my mind.

Posted by: Candy at May 9, 2007 5:22 PM

BTW the last time I checked Nathan’s Myspace blog he said he was in London on some ‘secret mission’ thingy. I looked up his IMDB profile and sure enough theres…..nothing so I really hope this London thing is gonna bring some work his way.

Posted by: Candy at May 9, 2007 5:28 PM

Nathan Fillion’s my housemate’s old drama teacher’s best friend, you guys.

I clearly have an edge.

Posted by: Jams at May 9, 2007 5:31 PM

follow it up with the top ten ugly overrated list and put scarlett johanssen at number 1 as she is ugly and I do not see what people see in her.

Posted by: EvilSamurai at May 9, 2007 5:38 PM

Sarah Vowell tops my NPR hotties list. )Yes I am that dorky) She is delightful.

Posted by: jenn at May 9, 2007 5:38 PM

Armando: Love the Sarah Vowell addition — I have a skeevy crush on Violet from “The Incredibles” (a la Natalie Portman in “Beautiful Girls”) because Sarah Vowell voiced the character. I keep hoping she’ll call to ask me to go with her to see a reenactment of the Gettysburg Address (Sarah Vowell, not Violet, because that would be illegal).

Oh, man—he’s an übernerd!

Posted by: Jerce at May 9, 2007 5:43 PM

I didn’t post a list so perhaps I have no place commenting here, and I’m probably going to get on some people’s bad sides by putting this out there, but Geal’s honorable mention aside, I am surprised the pajiban’s prefer their men so…caucasian.

Well, let’s be honest here. I’d wager that the majority of Pajiba readers are probably….caucasian. So I’m not particularly surprised at the results. Plus, there’s also the issue of non-caucasian actors and actresses being relatively unknown in many circles. And as mentioned before, the beloved, “popular” self-deprecating, supposedly dorky dudes are more likely to be caucasian than not. On the other hand, it’s kind of cool to see that men who might not usually be considered bangable otherwise get some love. Of course, with the exception of Maggie, the women were fairly typical, from what I understand (not hatin’, just making an observation).

The only person I’m particularly hot for is Christian Bale (although I loathe the picture - not really into the greasy look). Nathan Fillion is certainly attractive (and see above for other descriptors), but I wouldn’t put him in my top 10 for bangability. There are men with whom I’d love to hang out, maybe even make out, but I’m considerably more shallow about who I’d like to bang my brains out (and vice versa).

Posted by: Daphne at May 9, 2007 5:51 PM

A near perfect list…

Despite my love for all things football, sci-fi, & computer, I’m as straight as a check can get. But Portman and Maggie are the only chicks I’d ever consider crossing the road for. Salma’s a chain smoker and that’s a deal breaker. Besides, I couldn’t hang with a chick who’s rack was bigger than mine.

9/10 is not bad, Pajiba…

Posted by: ciij at May 9, 2007 5:56 PM

err…that’s ‘chick’

darn you spellchecker!

Posted by: ciji at May 9, 2007 5:57 PM

I hate Nathan Fillion and Joss Whedon’s stupid-ass obsession with that 1960s bla blonde interchangable cowboy hero (which means fuck you, Riley Potato-face!). He is about as interesting and/or stimulating as matzo bread.

Posted by: thomas at May 9, 2007 6:00 PM

Chiwetel Ejiofor was pretty damn close to making my list…But I had to go with people I’d be more likely to bump into it.
However Unlikely.
Haha.

Posted by: Leanne at May 9, 2007 6:09 PM

I want to see a run down of top ten males and top ten females. Otherwise a decent list.

Posted by: Samantha at May 9, 2007 6:12 PM

Awesome!! I too was a little disappointed that you mixed males and females instead of doing two separate lists, but with Fillion as #1 I am a happy camper anyway. I ADORE that man, and you absolutely nailed the description of his place and his appeal in my brain.

Posted by: Eva at May 9, 2007 6:28 PM

I didn’t post on the original discussion since there were already 400+ comments; however, I have to say that I am sad to not see Ewan McGregor on this list. I’ve had a fan-girl crush on him for the better part of my life. Yeah, he and Christian Bale have always been my list like since I was little sprite.

My only nit to pick: Maggie Gyllenhaal hasn’t yet married Peter Sarsgaard (too many vowels).

Tell me they are hyphenating that last name. GOD PLEASE. It would make my day the same way that time I heard Penelope was dating Tom and they might be the Cruz-Cruises.

Chiwetel Ejiofor was pretty damn close to making my list

Posted by: Jerce at May 9, 2007 6:37 PM

I am intrigued to see Newton characterized as the smartest area in the country. Okay, maybe you meant Massachusetts, New England or the Northeast in general, but as I am sitting in Newton even as I type, I was inclined to take it personally/specifically. That is, I live in Boston, but work in the Krasinski-Novak sector. Incidentally, likable as I consider John Krasinski, I find it incomprehensible that there was such an outpouring of enthusiasm for him and absolutely none for B.J. Novak, who I will bravely admit to placing super crazy high on my list, in spite of that entailing the disconcerting acknowledgement that I apparently share my taste in men with both Kelly and Michael Scott, arguably two of the shallowest characters in the known universe.

As for Newton’s claim to smartness, I don’t know. Given that in a brief stroll about the hood earlier I was subjected to no fewer than two dozen assorted honks, hoots, whistles and the dread kissy-noises, along with the, to my way of thinking, somewhat cryptic admonition to “shake it, don’t break it, baby,” I can’t say that the region strikes me at the moment as exactly conspicuous for it’s intellectualism. However, perhaps we may imagine that the motorists in question were merely passing through Newton on the way from somewhere really stupid to somewhere else really stupid. Let’s think that, shall we? Either way, thank you, Dustin, for regarding us as such brainy fucks up in here, and, you know, right back at you and some shit like that.

Posted by: Kate at May 9, 2007 7:00 PM

Am I the only one who is extremely giddy at the news that Christian Bale is doing a Werner Herzog movie? I think I just pajiba-ed myself, too … too much potential movie goodness …

Posted by: Kris at May 9, 2007 7:10 PM

Two lists = great idea. Please, Pajiba, pretty please?

In terms of diversity, I’m a bit surprised Chiwetel Ejiofor did not make the list, given the love he gets around here — and totally justifiable love, as long as he rolls out that accent from “Serenity.” Is that his real accent? I liked the sidekick growl from “Inside Man” too. And let’s add Chow Yun Fat — definitely top-ten on my “If I Had To …” list.

For the other side of the ledger, Salma Hayek lent some diversity, but I would also nominate Gina Torres — mmmm, definitely going motorboat with Gina.

Posted by: socalledonlycousins at May 9, 2007 7:12 PM

No John Cusack? Ahhhhh Pajiba. Almost 100%. He is a sellout now so I guess it’s understandable.

Paul Rudd in Clueless was the only reason I sat through that craptastic movie (and I was a teenage girl at the time, perfect demographic, right? Hated it.) He’s a naughty boy.

And chain smoker or not, I’d switch teams for Salma any day. Curvy, successful, talented…girl crush. Sigh.

I love Pajiba lists!

Posted by: Be Adequite! at May 9, 2007 7:15 PM

Well, let’s be honest here. I’d wager that the majority of Pajiba readers are probably….caucasian.

Well, this non-caucasion Pajiba-er had a list was full of white boys. They asked for fantasies, and they got them…

Posted by: ciji at May 9, 2007 7:18 PM

… and Rosario Dawson. Let’s not forget Rosario Dawson. That Esquire cover photo made a pajiba in my pants.

Posted by: socalledonlycousins at May 9, 2007 7:18 PM

I don’t mean to gripe and all, and it might just be me, but isn’t this list a little, oh, I don’t know, sausage heavy? The only cool girls you could find were portman, (whom I dig,) and then selma hayek and gyllenhall?

Hayek and Gyllenhall?!?

In the immortal words of George Oscar Bluth:

“Come on!”

Posted by: some guy at May 9, 2007 7:21 PM

Just for the record — the list is male heavy because, as I pointed out in the introduction, there were considerably more votes for men than women. Maybe we have more female and gay readers. Or maybe our female and gay readers are just more likely to comment. I dunno. I just compiled your mentions and did a little gerrymandering to get a couple of other females on the list. In fact, the top 14 or 15 were all guys and Hayek — I had to bump Maggie and Natalie up just to add some sexual diversity (Kate and Monica were much lower in the totals). Otherwise, the list is a reflection of your collective tastes — I just added a few words in the margins. — DR

Posted by: Dustin Rowles at May 9, 2007 7:31 PM

Your list is divine. I can’t agree more with your mentions (although I’ve never seen The Office, so John Krasinski was a nice surprise, and cause for rumination). I will tell you that I have a fridge magnet of Jon Stewart, my Livejournal used to have Natalie Portman up top, and I have Ryan Gosling’s and Simon Pegg’s picture(s) on my wall. So you captured me perfectly. I’d fuck any and/or all of them, over and over.

Kudos to you for recognizing the reasons people like me think they’re all so hot. With your sharp and honest wit you’re quite a catch yourself, Dustin. ;-)

Posted by: Alice at May 9, 2007 7:50 PM

Love the list—especially Natalie Portman, Paul Rudd, and Jon Stewart—but I have to say, if I had to pick one guy from “Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place,” it would totally have been Ryan Reynolds. Yum. =)

Posted by: AnnArrogance at May 9, 2007 8:05 PM

I do so wish you had included Phillip Seymour Hoffman on your list. But maybe I’m the only girl with a thing for intelligent, daring, charismatic, pale, short, plump men.

Damn he’s yummy.

Posted by: Lauren at May 9, 2007 9:16 PM

All right, here’s a non-caucasian for you (at the risk of making myself look like an even bigger dork that I already have, with my crush on Sarah Vowell-Socalledonlycousins, we should start a fan club!):

Kandyse McKlure. She plays Anastasia Dualla on Battlestar Galactica. And I think she’s yummy. (Although, granted, she’s no Katee Sackhoff. RRRRROW!)

Posted by: Armando at May 9, 2007 9:25 PM

Only 3 of the 10 listed are women. I approve.

Posted by: BLA at May 9, 2007 9:42 PM

Great and highly bangable list. As another non-caucasian reader, the whiteness of the list struck me, but I think it speaks most to the lack of non-cliched roles for non-whites—there just aren’t that many non-white actors who get good roles or who get attenion for smaller, indie roles.

I also felt the need to explain Ryan Gosling’s hotness because he would be at the top of my list. If I were to write the description for his entry I would say: Ryan Gosling has a magnetic, sexy, sexy, sexy energy that is utterly irrestible and totally and completely hot—or something along those lines. Also Half-Nelson is an amazingly good movie.

I only have two, okay, maybe three, suggested additions:

1) Mos Def—freaking hot as a lyricist and always performs admirably in the handful of movie roles he’s had. He has this quirky, dorky vibe that’s very cute and an absolutely charming smile.

2)The other half of Secretary: James “freaky/sexy/icy-hot” Spader. Hot. Damn.

3)a multi-way tie, Don Cheadle=sexy, magnetic, awesome; okay maybe Lost is too mainstream a show for this list, but I think Naveen Andrews who plays Sayeed is mad-sexy—as are Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) and the guy who plays Desmond (sexy accent); Did anyone else have a secret crush on Jason Bateman during Arrested Development’s all too-short run?

yeah, that third spot is definitely cheating, but so many men, so hard to choose…

Posted by: Leah at May 9, 2007 9:47 PM

Who the hell is Nathan Fillion? I’ve never even heard of the guy who’s number one on the list? More pajiba pretentiousness I guess. But still one of my favorite sites on the net.

p.s. Don’t everyone bother posting to tell me exactly who he is. I’ve picked that much up from reading the comments.

Posted by: tlb at May 9, 2007 10:07 PM

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes! John Krasinski plus the epitome of everyman sex appeal Nathan Fillion! Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!

Posted by: Mary at May 9, 2007 10:14 PM

Sweet! Two of my top five made the big list (Pegg & Gosling)! Great list overall, Pajibans. Clearly we have excellent taste.

Posted by: Jen at May 9, 2007 10:46 PM

Nathan…how do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Posted by: Holly at May 9, 2007 11:04 PM

My top ten, in retrospect: Sam Rockwell; Ewan McGregor; Clive Owen, obviously; Gerard Butler; Jason Statham; Jonny Lee Miller; Gong Li; Kal Penn; Nicholas Rowe (yuong Sherlock Holmes); and Chris Lowell (aka Piz from Veronica Mars).

Posted by: Krishna at May 9, 2007 11:23 PM

Jon Stewart would be first on my list, and I definitely get the Paul Rudd and John Krasinski entries—someone up there mentioned Gosling played the young Hercules (which I proudly admit to having been almost as devoted to as Xena), so now he’s up on my list too, though he wouldn’t have been without that tidbit.

And just as an aside, I really hate back-ass compliments like when people say that someone who is as smokin’ gorgeous hot as Salma Hayek is “so still the hotness considering her age.” If she were 72 or 73, that comment might not sound like it came from the anal orifice of a tsetse fly, but since Salma is only 40 or 41, I find myself wishing great ill upon you for saying that. If you are 13 or 14, it might be understandable, but if not, well, why don’t you go see what happens when you stick a fork into a light socket, okay? End rant. Back to happy thoughts of making sweet music with Jon Stewart.

Posted by: jerkygirl at May 9, 2007 11:26 PM

RYAN REYNOLDS- I love him. Remember, like, 400 years ago when he was on that weird Nickelodeon teen soap-opera? His teeth were HYOOGE. Am I the only one who ever saw that show? Also: Nathan Fillion- didn’t he used to be on One Life To Live? (my MOM watched it, OKAY? Damn.) Ryan Gosling- I would read the Book of Mormon for him. ‘Nuff said. Natalie and Salma? I’d hit that.

But Jon is my most favorite. Jon Stewart was supposed to be my husband, you know. We were going to make beautiful Southern-Jewish Hybrid babies, but we never got around to it. Also that thing with the catfish not being kosher fucked it up for us- life is SO unfair. Jon! Honey! CALL ME.

Posted by: HattyBoomBaLatty at May 9, 2007 11:27 PM

I’m not causasion either. I did miss the thread to vote but I don’t have a problem with the list. Label it as you must.

Posted by: Candy at May 9, 2007 11:39 PM

Thank you, thank you!!! Most days, it seems that Nathan Fillion is the “Great Unknown”. I’m convinced he has more web pages and blogs than most big stars! One things for sure - Fillion fans are loyal and extremly zealous. To think that Nate made #1 on your list shows a rare discernment greatly lacking in the general public. We can only hope accolades such as this will bring Nathan’s talant to the attention of a much wider audience. ….I’ll be in my bunk…

Posted by: Brenda at May 10, 2007 12:21 AM

Hmmm…I’d do about half that list, I think. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jon Stewart, Kate Winslet, and especially the amazing Christian Bale.

I’d add to that Geoffrey Rush, Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Rhys Meyers (pre-Match Point), Carrie-Ann Moss, and pre-anorexia Cate Blanchett.


Outside movies? Zach de la Rocha and Neil Gaiman.

I know, I’m weird.

Posted by: Vi at May 10, 2007 12:42 AM

Excellent list. Bale is my eternal number 1, but great list regardless (and okay, so that other guy does sound like he fits Pajiba mentality better).

But.. no Colbert :( It’s almost a sin to mention Stewart without at least giving Colbert an honorable mention!

Posted by: AD at May 10, 2007 1:02 AM

Sweet fancy Moses on buttered toast! I’ll give a resounding yes to every choice on this list.

Yummy.

Posted by: KatyBelle at May 10, 2007 1:10 AM

I have to add to the request that the list be split into male and female lists. I am opened minded and all, but I just find it boring reading comments that are nothing but the fantasies of women and gay men. Oh well. I guess I’ll just go read Maxim.

Bring on the ladies, damnit!

Come on!

Excellent list.
And I have to second Leah - James Spader makes me itch in a good way.

Posted by: Gersemi at May 10, 2007 3:31 AM

Nathan Fillion is pretty yummy, but one little factoid that SHOULD have hit the gossip rags if there was any decency in the world just about make me melt from the hotness potential.

He used to date Tricia Helfer. AKA “Six” from BSG.

If you’ve seen her, you’ll realize why the ensuing mental image just about incinerated my panties. Tricia’s one of the few actresses I’d cross the gender line for any day, anywhere.

Hot damn… Better than Jolie and Pitt, that fantasy three-some. If a little more dorky.

Posted by: Genny at May 10, 2007 4:02 AM

You had me from “Paul Rudd.”

I drooled over him in “Clueless.” And I still luuuurrrrve him today.

I don’t know Nathan Fillion or that guy from the office, but the rest of the list gets an A+ from me.

Posted by: kate at May 10, 2007 4:07 AM

The Prestige was BAAAAADDDDD… Nathan Fillion indeed represents Pajiba to the letter. But seriously, no Ryan Reynolds? Seriously? No Ryan Reynolds? There is no justice in the world :(

Posted by: Irina at May 10, 2007 4:40 AM

Ohhhh, I’m so sad that you didn’t mention Bruce Campbell. If Nathan Fillian has an appeal that spans only certain nerd circles, Campbell has that in spades. He’s the ultimate cult favorite, flying below the radar of the usual celebrity worshiping troglodyte fans. And as far as the sex factor? Hell, he somehow made an old, fat Elvis with nasty growths on the end of his wang sexy. I don’t know who could beat that. That and the “Old Spice” comercial… *Sigh* His name may be missing from his list, but I’ll take solace in seeing his picture on your website banner everytime I visit.

Otherwise, it’s an awesome list. Thanks Dustin!

Posted by: AllGussiedUp at May 10, 2007 4:41 AM

I think it should have been Ryand Gosling.

I have absolutely no idea who Nathan Fillion is until you mention his acheivements.

Cam I just lay on Salma’s breats.
P.S. I’m a committed straight gal but those boobies…man…

Oops… It seems that comercial is actually spelled commercial.

Hey has anyone else noticed the “How far is TOO far on a first date?: Chemistry” advert up top? *Snicker* This isn’t exactly too far on a first date, but I went out with a guy who ended up calling me twice a day, every day for two weeks, after our first date. What’s funny is that we actually had a cool date. My stalker-radar was really off on that one.

How come you neglected to mention Ryan Gosling’s tour-de-force performance in “The Believer”? It was unbelievable, phenomenal acting gold, giving heat and intensity to a somewhat flawed by fascinating movie that could have just ended up a cheesy indie take on “American History X.” he was fucking brilliant. if you haven’t, SEE IT.

Posted by: dede at May 10, 2007 5:32 AM

I completely agree that ewan Mcgregor is missing from this list.. he is totally sexy-hot/ugly depending on the movie, but after seeing his documentary “long way round” he seems like such a real genuine great guy…. too rare in Hollywood these days. which totally ups his sexiness…
and BIG TIME agree with Christian. love that man..

Posted by: Tgirl at May 10, 2007 6:17 AM

I second (third? fourth?) the call for a top ten most overrated and fugly list. My nominee for all five choices: Philip Seymore Hoffman (can’t be bothered looking up the correct spelling). See him ACT, see him SWEAT. See his sweat acting. What a grubby collection of tics. He is the welder’s sink of acting talent. PSH nearly ruined Long Day’s Journey Into Night (live theatre) by draining away the considerable acting talents of freakin’ Vanessa Redgrave and Brian Dennehey. He is the John Forsythe of this generation. Do a scene with PSH and forget how to act.

Posted by: rudy at May 10, 2007 7:04 AM

I completely agree about Paul Rudd, Salma Hayek and Fillian - and I add one of my choices - Josh Holloway (Sawyer) from LOST. He’s just pure pure pure extremely drool-worthy, sexy. His dimple and his smile can just about make me drop to the floor, melting in a pool of desire. Ahem…he’s quite alright I mean.

Posted by: shannon at May 10, 2007 8:46 AM

1. Nice work on the Jon Stewart entry, DR—your assessment completely captured JS’s role in US media/politics today. I got goosebumps. :)

2. I might not insist on adding Guy Pearce to the bangable list (although: yum), but one cannot talk greatest working “disappearing” young character actors today and not mention him. Just saying. He’s one of the few actors I’ll follow into any film—or, conversely, not realize it’s him until we’re an hour in.

3. If you guys don’t review Rescue Dawn when it surfaces, I’ll sulk for a year.

4. Crap almighty—HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN DANIEL DAE KIM AND JAMES ‘GAIUS BALTAR’ CALLIS? I am swiping Callum Blue off my freebie list and replacing him with Callis—and I’ll just have to mega-cheat and add a sixth spot for Kim. Mr. Ranylt will just have to put up. (Genny, I agree about Tricia Helfer—but I’ll take a Helfer-Callis sandwich over a Helfer-Fillion one, if that’s okay!)

Posted by: Ranylt at May 10, 2007 9:01 AM

Fillion, Bale amd Gosling? You win forever.

I would have added:

- David Bowie. He’s THE BOWIE. Do we need another reason?
- James Spader. I would do Alan Shore in a heart beat.
- Jason Isaacs - plays the best villains EVER. Exudes Evil-British-Sexiness.
- Jensen Ackles. Apart from the killer car in Supernatural, he’s just too hot not to throw down on the floor and do the nasty with.

Posted by: joe the lion at May 10, 2007 9:03 AM

I agree about Philip Seymour Hoffman. With a beard? Weirdly hot. Awesome actor.

Natalie Portman, Christian Bale, and Jon Stewart *are* three of the hottest people on the planet, bar none. Thank you for your list.

Posted by: pseudoliterati at May 10, 2007 10:00 AM

Good list, despite being a guy, Nathan and Christian are 2 of my favourite actors working today. Well, Nathan gets points for his work with Whedon who is my hero.

I would also like to see a Fugly list and it would be better to split this one up into the 2 genders. Just to be fairer to the girls that Pajiba guys have voted for.

You may have picked up that this is a shameless way of trying to get my number 1 girl, Alyson Hannigan on the list…try to work with me here.

Posted by: caillan at May 10, 2007 10:12 AM

Oh, I wish I could have gotten in on this yesterday..darn work!

Big showers of gratitude for including Jon Stewart, John Krasinski and making Nathan Fillion your official pin-up boy! I’d have given the rest of my open slots (whoo, that sounds dirty!) to Ryan Reynolds and Ron Livingston (damn, it feels good to be a gangsta-style).

I guibble not with the hotness, for you have, um, nailed it. But a few notes:

1) “which means that we have be the only ‘Sexiest List’”
I assume that’s “have to be”

2) And Maggie Gyllenhaal and the other be-voweled one aren’t married, just very hotly and parentaly in love

Carry on! And many thanks, what a nice way to begin the day!

HattyBoomBaLatty: I LOVED FIFTEEN!

Posted by: CC at May 10, 2007 11:10 AM

Nice list! I’d have added James Spader - don’t know why, but even though he’s now kind of pudgy and thinning, he’s still Got It for me.

I’ve seen Fillion three or four times at fan events (why yes, I’ve lost count..*g*), including one UK convention during which he hung out in the bar with us fans for hours. And he’s all that, definitely. Talented, charismatic, funny, whip-smart, friendly, and approachable. He also gives good blog and fan-forum post. Oh yeah, and he’s HOT.

I’d defy even the worst hater (and I note we had one in the house - hee) to spend 10 minutes with the man and not succumb to the Fillion charm.



Posted by: tarn at May 10, 2007 11:24 AM



What about James Franco and Jason Bateman? and David Tennant for cryin out loud??



Posted by: amanda at May 10, 2007 11:47 AM



I arrived too late this week to throw in my top 5 but I do want to make a comment about Paul Rudd. He was good in Clueless but ever since I saw him in “The Shape of Things” he’s been one of my favorite actors. Brutal movie but great performances. And it co-stars one of my Top 5 (Rachel Weisz). For the record the other 4 are Kate Winslet, Alyson Hannigan, Grace Park, and Maggie Gylenhaal.



Posted by: Rob at May 10, 2007 11:49 AM

Rudd, Gosling, Bale, Stewart, Krasinski. I can’t speak…I’m crawling under my desk right now to nap and see if I can relive that dream I had when I was eight where I was the Leia in a Han and Lando sandwich in a pillow filled room in Cloud City. Yeah. Billy Dee. What of it? It was my second “sex dream”. Sadly, my first was with Christopher Atkins from Blue Lagoon.

Posted by: NML at May 10, 2007 1:04 PM

Nathan Fillion and Tricia Helfer dated?!!? Oh….oh my.

Posted by: casita at May 10, 2007 1:44 PM

It was most interesting for me to have watched “Our Mrs. Reynolds” last night after having not watched any Firefly in around a year, and then come here to find Fillion at the top of the list. I will admit, I didn’t expect to find him on the list…it’s so sadly true that he’s rather overlooked.

I like this list. Honorable mentions included.

Paddydog got to my comment first about how rather saddening it is that the Bale photo has him practically slamming the wedding ring in your face.

Posted by: kiyo-chan at May 10, 2007 2:40 PM

Helcat you present a delectable lunchtime suggestion with the Bale/Gosling sandwich idea. My temperature just sky-rocketed and my mouth is kind of watering.Yum.

Posted by: leah at May 10, 2007 2:56 PM

Can we get some love for Chiwetel Ejiofor? Kinky Boots, Childeren of Men, Dirty Pretty Things, Serenity???

Posted by: ohayorisa at May 10, 2007 3:03 PM

I agree with those who believe that Peter Saarsgaard (too many a’s??) should take Salma’s spot—he’s WAY sexier than Salma (but I speak as a straight woman). And Kate Winslet needed to be moved up. She will forever be my girl-crush.

But other than that, the list was DEAD-ON.

Posted by: bonnie at May 10, 2007 3:10 PM

“On the other hand, it’s kind of cool to see that men who might not usually be considered bangable otherwise get some love. Of course, with the exception of Maggie, the women were fairly typical, from what I understand (not hatin’, just making an observation).”

Bingo, Daphne. Men have this luxury far, far more often than the ladies do. Mag’s the only one who doesn’t fit into the traditional beauty mold. Other woman who strikes me as sexy-but-not-beautiful: Chloe Sevigny. I haved never really found her pretty, but I see her appeal for sure.

Posted by: Samantha T at May 10, 2007 4:08 PM

Sam T: Agreed on Chloe Sevigny until the image of her blowing Vincent “Douchebag” Gallo became permanently lodged in my brain. Yuck.

Sexy-but-not-beautiful gets a fair amount of love on this site (e.g., DR’s “librarian look” actress fetish). Examples:

Pam from “The Office”
Michelle Williams (soooo yummy in “The Baxter”)
Catherine Keener
Franka Potente

Laura Linney

Toni Collette

[By the way, at the risk of pandering, I LOVE the chicks who post on Pajiba.]

Posted by: socalledonlycousins at May 10, 2007 5:04 PM

Leah, you are dead on about Mos Def and James Spader. Mmmmm…..

Sigh. Nathan. Sigh again. Absolutely dreamy. I think I need to go read some Firefly slash.

Posted by: jen at May 10, 2007 6:15 PM

Simon Pegg, Jon Stewart and a mention of Colbert?
Excuse me while I pass out. I have such ,assive weak spots for all 3 men that this list has left me bruised all over!
Though I think Colbert should have a place all his own, at say.. number 1? :)

Posted by: Carol F at May 10, 2007 7:00 PM

I hope Jon Stewart gets wind of this list. Then he could have all the other winners on “The Daily Show” as guests, and we could all Tivo our little horny brains out.

Posted by: Jerce at May 10, 2007 7:16 PM

Well, this non-caucasion Pajiba-er had a list was full of white boys. They asked for fantasies, and they got them…

Um, okay. 3 of my entries were white men, so it’s all good. I was simply guesstimating the demographics of Pajiba. I don’t know if many (or any) of my black friends and associates even know who Simon Pegg and Nathan Fillion are (kind of like how quite a few didn’t know who Sanaa Lathan was when one of her movies was Pajiba’d). If this were a blog of majority (insert minority here) folks, I do think that results might have been different. Not better or worse - just different.

Daniel Dae Kim is quite yummy, and I regret that I forgot the equally yummy Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Triple A to me). I remember, as a teenager, my friend showing me part of a movie where he was nekkid, and goodness gracious, the man was a freakin’ Adonis. Good times. I wish I could remember the name of it.

Posted by: Daphne at May 10, 2007 7:55 PM

I’m with Bonnie - Kate Winslet is my girl crush.

As for boys, I vote for Mark Ruffalo and Jake Weber.

Posted by: Kristin at May 10, 2007 8:31 PM

Awesome list! I’d do most of them.

I came face to face with Christian Bale at a pizza place and he is simply a good looking man. Shoulders for days.

But I would give my best lovin’ to Jon Stewart. He will always have my heart. And I’d do things to him that would make a sailor blush.

Posted by: Debbye at May 10, 2007 8:44 PM

Balthazar Getty has always been hot to me.

Posted by: Candy at May 10, 2007 9:22 PM

Great list! Let me add my name to the list of people who’ve met Fillion and can attest that he is very easy on the eyes in person and a genuinely nice human to boot.

Posted by: khia213 at May 10, 2007 9:25 PM

Whither HUGH LAURIE?

(In all of his incarnations…)



Posted by: Duchess at May 10, 2007 9:49 PM



I regret that I forgot the equally yummy Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Triple A to me).

I, too, find Triple-A riveting, Daphne—what a walking sculpture, and that face and voice! but he did just too goddamned good a job in Oz as Adebisi, and henceforth I can never see him as anything but terrifying…sex with Adebisi ain’t happening!!!

Posted by: Ranylt at May 10, 2007 9:52 PM

I came face to face with Christian Bale at a pizza place and he is simply a good looking man. Shoulders for days.

Oh my. Jealous, I am. Details, please - was he nice? Was he tall? short? Give us something!

Ranylt, I have never watched Oz, although I did hear of his role as Adebisi. If I watched the show, I might feel the same. Alas, I have been spared.

Posted by: Daphne at May 10, 2007 10:53 PM

This list was a sausage fest. Try harder, indie freaks.

Posted by: I Voted For Bush at May 10, 2007 11:32 PM

Nathan Fillion? You’re joking, right?

Posted by: TT at May 10, 2007 11:38 PM

Hey, TT:
No joking, motherfucker.
NATHAN FILLION.

Posted by: tallgrrl at May 11, 2007 12:19 AM

Oh how i adore Nathan Fillion & Simon Pegg! Nice to see them on the same list…

My honourable mentions would be Ian Wright from Pilot Guides & David O’Hara (Matchmaker, Braveheart, The Departed etc).

Three Brits, a Canadian and one happy girl!

Posted by: Sareliza at May 11, 2007 1:02 AM

Fantastic list: I adore John Krasinski and Nathan Fillion. But when I need a quick orgasm before sleep, there is no man I can think of (aside from my wonderful boyfriend, of course) who gets me there faster than Clive Owen. May God bless and keep you, Clive.

Posted by: Melissa at May 11, 2007 1:16 AM

Ali Larter (Heroes). Bang on.

Posted by: gaine at May 11, 2007 1:21 AM

Thank you for validating my long time admiration of [read: borderline obsession of] Christian Bale. I have only met one or two people who even know who he is without me mentioning Batman, but I’ve never met anyone who shares my adoration of his talent and overall charisma. I even sat through multiple viewings of Reign of Fire just for the pleasure of seeing him and hearing that damn accent.

Anyway, thanks. Thanks alot.

Posted by: Christina at May 11, 2007 2:58 AM

Let’s not forget James McAvoy…sexy,sexy,sexy Scot.

Posted by: hmmmm at May 11, 2007 3:08 AM

Gah, the “Notebook.” If I were Gosling I would forbid any mention of that tripe in interviews.

Seriously, if you want to see his hotness and acting range, I’d go with “the Believer.” Guy’s like Sean Penn’s younger doppelganger, but with charisma.

And seriously, Jon Stewart as this generations Cronkite? Please, we have better taste than that poseur.

And seriously, Fillion is totally the new Harrison Ford, but with comic timing.

Posted by: Kar at May 11, 2007 3:28 AM

I sort of wished there had been a top 10 men, and a top 10 women.

But my husband says he thinks Maggie Gyllenhaal is horrifying to look at, which he tells me whenever i express interest in seeing any of her films.

Posted by: Carrie at May 11, 2007 5:56 AM

Bale and Fillion - Amen to that. And yeah, Fillion would be sooo damn good Indy!

Posted by: JJ at May 11, 2007 6:03 AM

Nathan Fillion in stuck as Joey Buchanan to me…

Posted by: Erika at May 11, 2007 9:11 AM

So most of my list made it to the big show!!! The only person missing is Jason Bateman…oh how I love the Bluths!

I do remember Nathan Fillion on One Life to Live, he played Joey Buchanan and he had an affair with Dorian. It was great! This is what I will always remember him for and kind of forgot about his time on Two Guys & a Girl.
There are people in this world that don’t know John Krasinski? really?

Also, seeing Jon Stewart in person, I lost some of my love for him. As an amazon 6-footer it was sad to see how short he actually is in person. Nonetheless, I still think he has one of the best shows on tv and will always love him. I’m going to see the Colbert Report on Monday and I’m sure he will not disappoint!!!

Posted by: jmurae at May 11, 2007 11:25 AM

Bale and Fillion ahoy! However, am I the only one who goes all melty for Liev Schreiber?

Posted by: llism at May 11, 2007 11:29 AM

Dustin, you are a literary genius. I always love to read your reviews even if I don’t care about seeing the movie you are writing on. If there are some kind of awards given for movie critics, you would need a large mantle for all the trophies. Now, about the list. I think Ryan Reynolds should have ranked higher. He is my new favorite action/comedy movie star and I will go see anything he is in, even if it stars Wesley Snipes. Next, Bruce Campbell. AllGussiedUp hit the nail on the head by suggesting to add his name to the list. I was not sure who he was until I saw his appearance as the Maître d’ in Spider-man 3. I went home and looked him up on the imdb. He is a very accomplished actor and someone I would love to see in more obscure movie parts. (and here’s some trivia… he is in all 3 Spider-man movies) I am a guy, and would have liked to see more women on your list, but the only addition I would have made would be Amanda Peet. I have loved every role she has had so far, and I am especially in love with her character Jordan from the very short lived (sigh) Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. She plays a smart, powerful, very well written, crazy, pregnant network executive on that show. Yummy… straight to the bedroom with her.

Posted by: Randy at May 11, 2007 11:33 AM

Oh! And not that he’s a movie dude, but Mike Rowe from “Dirty Jobs”? I’d put him in a stretcher. Repeatedly. (rubs hands together in a Burns-like fashion)

Posted by: llism at May 11, 2007 11:58 AM

John Krasinski. He’s one of the people on my “list”. You know, the list you share with your spouse of people that “It’s not cheating if I have shot with ___________.”

Oddly enough, Natalie Portman is also on my list….primarily for V for Vendetta. My husband desperately hopes that I meet Natalie rather than John :)

And Christian Bale. While he’s not actually on the “list”, he’s positively glorious.

Posted by: lawyerjenn at May 11, 2007 12:31 PM

My tastes have always run to the dorky and enigmatic, so I was happy to see this list. I’m glad I’m not the only person who loves Simon Pegg. Ewan McGregor is definitely the hotness, but ever since “Moulin Rouge” I might argue that his hotness has become a bit mainstream, which seems to me to be the anti-Pajiba. I found him irresistible in “Big Fish,” though.

Of course I carry an undying torch for Paul Bettany and would have liked to see him added to this, but he’s in an awkard spot in that he’s not quite above-the-title famous yet, but no longer Brit-films-only obscure. He’s just “that guy.” That albino, that villain, that naked guy, that hallucination. I guess I’ll forgive him for “Wimbledon.”

Chiwetel Ejiofor’s been mentioned a couple of times, as well as Mos Def; I’ll go along with those for the same of diversity. Both quite yummy. I’m also a tiny bit enamored of the black guy who played Courteney Cox’s security advisor on “Dirt.” I don’t know his name, but he had an unplaceable accent.

Robert Carlyle’s long been one of my favorites. Yes, he’s about four feet tall, but incredibly charismatic and I lovelovelove his accent.

Alan Tudyk, also from “Serenity” and “Firefly.” Of course, my heart beats for him because he bears more than a passing resemblance to my husband. :) Treads that geeky/sexy line very well, in my opinion. Plus, he’s a fellow Texan. :)

Posted by: Noelegy at May 11, 2007 12:54 PM

Let’s not forget James McAvoy…sexy,sexy,sexy Scot.

You are my new favorite Pajiban :)

Posted by: AD at May 11, 2007 1:05 PM

Yahhhh Nathan Fillion. I met him, too, at a Serenity premiere, and he is sooo handsome.

Posted by: Brando at May 11, 2007 1:49 PM

Bang on. It leaves off some of my faves, like Hugh Laurie and Ioan Gruffudd and Clive Owen, but my guess is they aren’t well known enough yet. And the entry on Nathan is pretty much like my description of him in the other thread, only eloquent and stuff in that wonderful Pajiba style. And thanks for compiling this list - it must have taken quite some time.

genny - Mal and Six? Lordy lordy. I’ll be in my bunk.

Posted by: Sarah at May 11, 2007 2:09 PM

I just logged in for the first time to say that it’s total BULL that the only female of Latin descent you included in here is only bangable based truly on lust. Do you have an idea of the issues she stand for, you marginalizing prick?

Posted by: Voracious at May 11, 2007 2:48 PM

Yeah for Nathan! He totally deserves this. One man I would add to your list for boikability is James Marsters. Yumm……

Posted by: Connie at May 11, 2007 2:49 PM

I agree about Fillion. When I heard Indiana Jones 4 was coming out, I sort of assumed that Fillion would get the role as Indy’s son to carry on the series’ legacy.

Posted by: Blake Curry at May 11, 2007 3:43 PM

Love Nathan!! A little sad you didn’t name Christina Ricci.

Posted by: KB at May 11, 2007 5:44 PM

every one will laugh but since VOLVER Penelope Cruz is stuck in my fucking head. Kind of a salma lite??

Posted by: pasadenamike at May 11, 2007 7:04 PM

Hear hear! Especially re: Christian Bale. You’re only missing Stephen Colbert. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who should have been higher up. And I’ve always liked Nick Frost better than Simon Pegg, but they’re both pretty awesome.

Posted by: Zuzu at May 11, 2007 7:07 PM

YEAHHHHHH!
3 of my people made it!

Gael Garcia Bernal-mentioned
Salma
and yummmmmmmm NATHAN FILLION!!!

i hope someone sent notice of this to his “people”
GREAT diversion this week.

Posted by: Jennifer at May 11, 2007 7:20 PM

It’s absolutely, definitely not just lust about Salma Hayek (says a bi girl). She’s courageous, tenacious… and totally, utterly luminous. I’d love to be her best friend and be inspired by her as much as I’d like to do her. And yes, she’s been at the top of my female list for years.

Posted by: Kristina at May 11, 2007 7:39 PM

Um, yeah, for me, Salma is about the voluptuousness (sp?), which I think means lust. It’s a bangability list, V, not a political debate. For most of the folks on it (Stewart being the obvious exception), we don’t really know about their issues and would probably be disillusioned if we did.

Salma is not hot “for her age,” however, in response to a poster above. She’s about the best thing going, period. The cure for Kate Moss disease.

Posted by: socalledonlycousins at May 11, 2007 8:00 PM

You know, I love all of these people. When you got to John Krasinski I thought I was going to orgasm. Well done, Pajiba.

Posted by: Miranda at May 11, 2007 8:29 PM

Thanks for Christian Bale, who should have been number one, I barely know who Nathan Fillion is and that Serenity film sucked hardcore (sorry guys, just not into the geeky sci-fi as much as Buffy!)… and Jon Stewart who I have been salivating over for the past few years, of course, DUH! Ryan Gosling would make a HOT high school teacher, and he really destroyed it in Half Nelson, he was GREAT!

Posted by: g at May 11, 2007 8:37 PM

Selma won’t be doing anything for a while, she’s knocked up, people!

Posted by: g at May 11, 2007 8:38 PM

Anyone find Julian Sands incredibly attractive? Even when he plays awful characters. Of course I have that thing for British men, too….

Posted by: lily at May 11, 2007 8:46 PM

And, oh my gosh, Hugh Laurie!!!

Posted by: lily at May 11, 2007 8:49 PM

WTF?!?!?!?!?

What kind of sad, pathetic, shitty list is this? Paul Rudd “bangable”?

The ONLY one you got right was Christian Bale. What about Eddie Izzard, fuck

JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, Ryan Reynolds deserved to be on that list way more than Natalie Portman.

Posted by: Elizebeth at May 11, 2007 11:49 PM

your damn right he is number one nathan fillion i use to think david boreanaz was well he is but nathan fillion is indy and he dose get looked over by networks he is a very good actor as well as very funny man at that nathan fillion rocks

Posted by: michaline at May 12, 2007 1:16 AM

That’s one helluva list! I mean, sometimes I thought you guys were in my head writing the page in real time.

“Maggie Gyllenhaal should be he—… well, there she is. She looks a lot like a Katie Holmes for… Wait, there it is: she looks a lot like her in the pic and she just got Holmes’ role in… Speaking of which, Bale should… Come on, what’s goin on?”

I’d only argue about Fillion being #1 (I don’t know much of him, but his pics were never that exciting) and to Pegg’s pic. Get the one of him looking pretty serious as a badass cop and you’re ok.

Posted by: Gargumma at May 12, 2007 1:31 AM

This list is perfect! Jon, Paul, and then you top it all off with the sweetest actor working right now, Nathan. BTW, he is just as charming in person. Love ya Nathan!

Posted by: Erica at May 12, 2007 1:46 AM

OOhhhh, Christian Bale. My mother and I both want to kidnap him and keep him. I’ve had a crush on him since “Newsies”. He was perfect as Batman, perfect as an “American Psycho”, and he’s abso-frigging-lutely delicious. Fantastic actor, versatile, and I totally never knew he was British until I saw an interview with him in the special features section of “American Psycho.” Unnngh. I would like two, please.

Can’t really get hot and bothered about ole “Caleb-Mal”. The first time I ever saw him was on “Buffy”, and he played such a convincingly horrible misogynistic creepy-preacher, I just couldn’t get past it. So I guess he did too good of a job on me.

Posted by: Apathy at May 12, 2007 2:35 AM

I have a list of guys in one of myspace blogs. Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale, and Nathan Fillion are all on it. Except that Nathan is second on the list. Second only to Henry Rollins ;)

I’ve been watching both Reynolds and Fillion since ‘Two Guys & and Girl…’, Gosling since ‘Young Hercules’, Bale since ‘Empire of the Sun’, and Rudd since ‘Clueless’. And I cannot remember the last time I DIDN’T have a crush on Jon Stewart.

BTW, Salma Hayek is the most perfect female ever. Her male counterpart, The Rock.

Thanks for making this list :)

Posted by: boatierra at May 12, 2007 3:16 AM

Right on…. Holy Krap right on…
