5. Benedict Cumberbatch -- What? Benedict Cumberbatch? The guy's as goofy looking as his name. What's to love about a pasty thin British nub with moppy hair and a dorky smile? I mean, besides the voice. The sly demeanor. The glimmery eyes. The impeccable cheekbones. His cerebral approach to his craft. Maybe it's his keen fashion sense, or maybe it's just the scarf. Or maybe it's because he's the best goddamn Sherlock in the history of Sherlocks. In real life, the man was once kidnapped and locked into the trunk of his car by six men in South Africa, and he smart-talked his way out of the situation. Maybe it's his appreciation for life bleeding through that people are drawn toward. God knows it wasn't Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which was a total bore. Maybe, oh, I don't know. Maybe it's just the man's ass. Whatever it is, Benedict Cumberbatch is incredibly sexy almost in spite of himself, and to land in the Pajiba 10 looking like he does suggest there's powerful forces at play in the soul of Cumberbatch, which makes him my favorite kind of Pajiba 10 entrant, a guy that will mind-f*ck you to ecstasy before he even removes your clothes. -- Dustin Rowles

4. Mila Kunis -- You know the old misogynist trope that a girl described as having a great personality is not likely to be a looker? Well, Mila Kunis is the definition of that girl -- she's clearly not on this list, and ranked this high, because of her looks. No, it's because she's a funny, charming, self-effacing woman, a WOW-playing computer nerd comfortable in herself, who's awesome enough to accept an internet date to the Marine Corps Ball. Born in the Soviet Union, she has surpassed her teen costars of That '70s Show (in talent, in the case of Topher Grace, who's nowhere to be seen, and in likability, in the case of Ashton, who's unfortunately everywhere to be seen). Though she got off to a rocky start with flicks like American Psycho 2, she broke through with Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and then went on to show us a surprising amount of versatility, culminating, of course, with Black Swan. But it's in the surprisingly great Friends With Benefits that Kunis is at her best. She comes off as sweet and hilarious and smart as we imagine she is in real life, and that's why we love her. Well, that, and because she's stunningly hot. -- Seth Freilich

3. Tom Hiddleston -- Tom Hiddleston may be the only person to grace this list not only for his looks, but for his voice. Yes, he is beautiful -- but that voice! It's his oh-so-English delivery of the "Once more unto the breach" monologue of "Henry V." It's his not-too-shabby impressions. Even better, it's what we imagine he is saying in this naughty mashup with fellow 10 member Benedict Cumberbatch. Hiddleston is just seductive, whether he is channeling F. Scott Fitzgerald in Midnight in Paris or stealing every scene as Loki, that damned god of mischief, in Thor and The Avengers. There's something exciting about Hiddleston, and charming. He's thrilled to be in the spot he's in, and we're thrilled for him. And we want him to whisper sweet nothings to us in whichever voice he prefers. -- Sarah Carlson

2. Michael Fassbender -- Now here is a lad who knows how to give his audience the best of both worlds; that is, he's both a talented actor and a frequent disrober. These days, Fassy is perhaps best known as a recipient of too-late, passive-aggressive, penis-golfing jokes from the mouth of George Clooney, but it's not like Fassy didn't ask to be objectified by starring (mostly naked!) in Shame. Nor did he intend to convey pure thoughts when he signed on to spank Keira Knightley in A Dangerous Method. And sure, Fassy has done his share of mainstream and (for lack of a better term) non-sexual acting as the oh-so-creepy android in Prometheus and as the dashing, oddly-accented film critic of Inglourious Basterds, but let's not kid ourselves here. That long, lithe body (like a panther, rowrr) and that imperfect smile have a way of finding movies that (no matter how serious) somehow still involve him not wearing any clothes at some point. Case in point: Hunger. Do we really believe that Fassy wanted to play I.R.A. activist Bobby Sands for the cause, or did he really just long to stick his cute little butt in the camera? I think his true fans know the answer to that question. Quite simply, the man was meant to be naked and even began his career in the nude (and obviously NSFW) SAS commerical. See? He's the eternal and (ideal) pantsless man. Thank God for Fassy. -- Agent Bedhead

1. Emma Stone -- She didn't have the quite year professionally that she had in 2011, but thanks to The Help's healthy Oscar campaign -- not to mention her role as Gwen Stacy in the mehbooted The Amazing Spider-Man -- keeping her lovely visage on the Internet's mind since our last Pajiba 10, Emma Stone comfortably made the list her second time in a row. She even managed to do the unthinkable, achieving such a feat whilst losing her trademark fiery follicles and going blonde. Not that we're complaining she's re-gingerfied, but it seems blondes really might have more fun after all, especially considering Stone's adorable love affair with co-star Andrew Garfield. They look like they're having so much fun being young, attractive, and apparently a perfect (or perfectly timed) match, I imagine there are few straight males on the planet who wouldn't trade places with her British thespian boyfriend even if only for a few fleeting moments. Wearing the blue and red spandex and swinging from crane towers has got nothing to do with it. Speaking of, if you're still on the fence about seeing the new Spider-Man in action, then there's really only one reason to resist the urge and just buy a ticket: Emma Stone. As a comic fan, I held out hope for far too long that she would end up as the more well-known love interest, Mary Jane Watson. After coming off of Zombieland, Easy A, and Superbad she had already established she could sleepwalk through the part and still make it more accurate to the source material and be more memorable than Kirsten Dunst. (And I like Kirsten Dunst!) But after seeing her take on Peter Parker's first true love, I take it all back. Now, I'm ecstatic that she'll be Gwen for one or two more movies until the character reaches her eventual inevitability, no matter how good or not-so-good the current cycle of movies will be. Now, when *that* happens, there won't be a dry eye in the house. Because like all comic fans of a certain age who loved Gwen Stacy, we all love Emma Stone. Anything less than total devotion is tantamount to sacrilege. All hail Emma, we're not worthy. -- Rob Payne
