Hot or Not?

You make the call.

All I know is it's hot outside, and to cool off we head to the pool. Today I figured we'd check out the shallow end, which is where I prefer to hang out.

So this here post is all about beauty in the eye of the beholder and all that shit. Some men they are just hot and theres no denying that, you know that People's Sexiest Man Alive kind of guy like Matthew McConaughey or George Clooney.

Except some years I think, which people exactly think he's good looking? So I came up with two lists. Men that I for some reason find oddly attractive and men that apparently many people find hot and I.just.don't.

Obviously I'm going with famous men, so all of these men have some audience draw or they would be on radio. But none of them are the heart throb leading man type. However, I like them despite my impeccable good taste (see the above mentioned hotties).

Vince Vaughn - yes he's tall, but too tall, like amazonian. And the humor in his movies is aimed at young boys, not old married women. Yet I find him adorable, like a big awkward puppy.
Jack Black - again movies with a target audience of 12 year old boys. As we start watching one of his movies I say I shouldn't like this, then I giggle like a jr high school girl. Apparently I appreciate a sense of humor. That explains so much.
Dr. Drew - Dorky tv doctor, yet if you watched Celebrity Rehab there was one scene where he wore a black t-shirt and jeans... man has got it going on.

Freddy Rodríguez - He is the newer romantic interest for Ugly Betty. Seeing as she's such a misfit it's obvious he's not a traditional hottie. For one he's short, but so am I, so that doesn't bother me so much.

Carey Hart - you know Pink's ex (at least I think that they are still apart at the time of publishing. I'm not generally a fan of the whole body tattoo thing. I think the attraction is because he was on the Surreal life and he ironically was the only voice of reason in the house that season. Yet, he looks like such a rebel, I find the contrast hot.

Next up: Ya'll can have them.

Russel Crowe - okay, yes, I see the nice body, I understand what others see, but meh, does nothing for me. It was his role in the breakup of Meg Ryan's relationship that turned me off initially, now his big ol' ego gets in the way of his good looks.
Ashton Kutcher - he's just goofy looking to me. I think Bruce Willis is hotter.
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon - they look like every generic frat boy I ever knew, I see nothing special about either one of them (okay other than the Oscars on their mantles).

Brad Pitt - again I can appreciate what others see, but he's skeevy to me. And was even before he broke Jen's heart and ran off with that skank Angelina. (sorry but all the good deeds in the world will not erase my memory of her kissing her brother, marrying Billy Bob or wearing a vial of blood around her neck)
Leonardo DiCaprio - he just looks like a little boy playing dress up to me, like he hasn't hit puberty, thinking he was hot is just wrong in my mind.

Now, it's your turn. Weigh in. Hot or Not? Let us know your crush! It'll be our little secret.


I agree with most of your assessments with the following exceptions.

In the no for me category:
Vince Vaughn (he does NOTHING for me)

In the yes for me category:
Brad Pitt (and to that end Angie, sorry but I love her)

Not on the list but UGH:
Owen Wilson. Sorry but NO.

I like all your picks...except Corey...I can't get passed all the ink. Looks dirty...but I guess I could give him a bath.
Vince vaughn, yum, Dr Drew, yummo,

I would leave Russell Crowe on the side of the road.
Is that mean?

George clooney is a dream boat.

I love this!

Listen. I have A Thing for Matthew McConaughey. And I KNOW he is crazy and I DO NOT CARE. He is SO YUMMY. And his ACCENT. Do not get me started. Just DO NOT.

I AGREE with you on Vince Vaughn! What is it about him? I think he would get old quickly, but I definitely find him attractive.

Anyway, people I DON'T find hot:

Patrick Dempsey, Ashton Kutcher, Chris Noth from SATC

People I DO:

Gordon Ramsay (I KNOW!), Sayid from LOST, Jim from The Office

Leonardo DiCrapio is a dink. An overrated dink.
Go back in time: Cary Grant and Gregory Peck, those guys HAD IT.

You are SPOT ON with every man and every comment.

I am a total sucker for Jack Black...when he alternates raising both eyebrows...oh my's so cute!!!

I thought Matt Damon was cute in "The Rainmaker" but that was only because I loved the character...but since then, there's nothing there.

June 18, 2008 at 11:13 AM  

I totally agree..(Leo Decaprio..not cute to me. At All)
EXCEPT.. Vince Vaughn.. I think he's funny, but umm...he's freakishly tall..and I am crazy scared of extra tall people.

June 18, 2008 at 11:40 AM  

Oooh this post is fun, huh? Nice and light for the heavy hot weather.

Raven I don't get the attraction to either of the Wilson boys. But I do think they are pretty funny.

Suz I don't know what it is with Carey, cause I agree he does look dirty. Maybe you've got something with that bath idea.

Tessie I LOVE Matthew!!!! Crazy naked bongo playing, what? La, la, la, can't hear you! Oh and Sayid from Lost, dear gracious, strand me on an island with that man!

GR perfect description of Leo a dink! And I like the old stars too.

Kira I knew I loved you! Such good taste you have!

Lynette, Vince Vaughn just seems like a big goofy puppy to me. So funny looking he's cute, ya know?

June 18, 2008 at 11:47 AM  

I typically don't have a thing for MOST of the actors that most women do have a thing for. Matthew McConaughey used to, but not so much anymore. He looks like a liar to me.

Vince Vaughn absolutely does it for me, though. I love a guy who can make me laugh.

I also have the weirdest crush on Steve Carell. I can't help it.

June 18, 2008 at 12:02 PM  

I love Steve Carrell AND John Kraczinski (aka JIM)... And what add Patrick Dempsey and Barry Manilow to your HOT list and we will be good to go!

Oh, and don't forget about Zac Effron! I love me some teenage boys! LOL!

June 18, 2008 at 12:13 PM  

My list (and Bossy's) would never be complete without John Cusack.

Dr. Drew I can see--Vince Vaughn and Jack Black as fun guys at a party, but not hot.

I felt the same way abot Leo until Blood Diamond. Now I'll take my Leo with a South African accent please!

June 18, 2008 at 1:58 PM  

Okay, this is by NO MEANS my "list". Just some odds and ends.
I have the traditional pretend hubby list.
Much like my buddy Tracy, boys I should possibly adopt, but I think are hot list. Although Zac is not on my list.
And of course my men I would knock down my hubby to get out the door to watch them read the phone book list. Okay that's pretty much just Matthew.

So Jenn for the record John Cusack is one of my favorites! But he's a mainstream romantic comedy lead so he was not included on today's lists. And I have not seen Blood Diamond, but perhaps I should.

June 18, 2008 at 2:12 PM  

Oh! I actually met both Vince Vaughn (actually several times) AND Jack Black. They were both really nice guys.

And VV I've met when he's been svelte hottie and chunky monkey, but he's hot no matter his weight. And funny, no duh.

JB was sporting some really heinous blond hair, but just a nice feller. And he DEFinitely looks bigger on camera. As someone funnier than I once said, "if the camera adds ten pounds, how many cameras are pointing at him at this moment?"

For Ashton Kutcher all I can say is, Huh? I don't get it.

June 18, 2008 at 3:42 PM  

Manager Mom, Seriously, you should not tell me things like this. You might wake up one morning to find me delivering your paper and morning coffee on the off chance you could introduce me to Jack and Vince. Hee hee! Good thing I'm happily married and HATE cold weather, huh?

June 18, 2008 at 4:38 PM  

Brad Pitt-again I can appreciate what others see, but he's skeevy to me. And was even before he broke Jen's heart and ran off with that skank Angelina. (sorry but all the good deeds in the world will not erase my memory of her kissing her brother, marrying Billy Bob or wearing a vial of blood around her neck)

That was so well said. Thank you!

I'm afraid to say that I don't find Matthew McConaughey attractive at all. Am I baned forever from commenting here now??? He has greasy/nappy hair! Like he needs a shower but not in a good way.

June 18, 2008 at 10:48 PM  

Carri fine with me if you don't care for Matthew. One less woman I'll have to fight for him! Ha!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you come back despite my love of dirty men.

June 18, 2008 at 11:07 PM  

Okay, so you already know my list pretty much backwards and forwards...seeing as none of them are here...yes I know this in not your list, just some names...I agree with most of your nots...Brad Pitt is still kind of nice to look at...actually more so now with all his new "body art"...with that said we are agreeing with very few on the hot side...Clooney...yes...his voice puts me over the edge... and Vaughn..yes...but I have to make a confession...I know it will be against all that is holy...Matthew...I don't get it...I guess I see the Texas cowboy not my thing...head on over to Ireland or Australia and we can talk!!!
