My Weekend Crush

CLICK to see Hot X 100

In honor of the fantastic AfterEllen Hot 100 List (the gay women’s emphatic response to the Maxim Hot 100 List -- oh, don’t get me started again), I thought I’d pick one of the many, many hotties from the bunch for My Weekend Crush. Thirteen of the 100 have already been crushes, including the reigning No. 1 lovely Leisha Hailey. [See them all in a slideshow of hotness here.] What I find most fascinating about the list is the spectrum of what we find sexy. From Sarah Shahi to Susan Sarandon, Queen Latifah to Natalie Portman, Emma Thompson to Sandra Oh. Seems we believe in mixing smart with our sexy. We think great accomplishments are as alluring as a great rack. We want more than eye candy; we want mind candy. Like I said, fantastic. Then I realized, with all the options on there it would be nearly impossible to choose just one. How could I pick between Emma and Susan? Rachel Weisz and Clea Duvall? Jorja Fox and Meryl Streep? So, instead, I picked the whole damn list. That’s right, all 100. Even the ones I’m not so sure about. (Uh, Lindsay, seriously?) Cheers to the AfterEllen gals, who are quite the foxy bunch themselves. I mean, damn, have you seen the brains on those ladies? Smokin’. Happy weekend, all.

Long before AE's hot 100, your weekend crushes sure made my weekends. Much love.

The Snarker is a Rachel Weisz fan, long live the Snarker! Great weekend crush, I've gotta agree with you - the AE girls certainly know how to woo through words...

Plus, now I've have all 100 girls to put on my screen, yay!

i love clea duvall - very beautiful, but not in a boring, stereotypical barbie doll kind of way - beautiful in her individuality- great actress - loved her on heroes...and what was that hbo show - carnivale

I loved the AE Hot 100, but was dismayed by two omissions I would have included in MY list: Chloe Sevigny, who I still crush on since "If These Walls could Talk II"; and Tammy Etheridge a.k.a. Tammy Lynn Michaels - that Melissa is one lucky woman!
