Perfect 10

Now, to be perfectly honest, I’m normally somewhat opposed to the ranking of women solely by attractiveness. Very often, no good comes of it except scantily clad pictures of women in what will soon be sticky pages of a glossy magazine. Like I was saying, no good. But, in the spirit of representing all kinds of attractiveness, particularly from a gay sensibility, and in the spirit of listmaking, because who doesn’t love a list, I’m going to share my votes for uber hotties in this year’s AfterEllen.com Hot 100.

1. Tina FeyIf you don’t know the reasons by now, I’m going to have to assume you just haven’t been paying attention.

2. Lena HeadeyI cannot resist a sexy scowl. And no one scowls sexier than Lena, especially when she follows it up with that crooked little smile. I am a goner, baby goner.

3. Padma LakshmiIn one of my versions of heaven, I get to watch Padma lick food off her fingers for all of eternity.

4. Jodie FosterYour first lady crush is always your longest.

5. Kate WinsletI think, if at all possible, Kate keeps getting more exquisite with age. I expect add her to my personal Hot 100 from now until we’re all finally driving those flying cars we’ve been promised.

6. Olivia WildeI think Megan Fox’s greatest contribution to society so far has been the universal acknowledgment that Olivia is so hot that mountain oxen everywhere better watch the fuck out.

7. Meryl StreepSee my Kate Winslet reasoning, times 1,000.

8. Tilda SwintonWords cannot adequately describe why or how viscerally I am attracted to Tilda. Though if forced at gunpoint to sum it up in under two words I would have to go with “the hair.”

9. Jennifer BealsIn another of my versions of heaven, Jennifer bosses me around while wearing one of her Alpha Bette power suits.

10. Katie McGrathI don’t even really watch “Merlin,” but every time I happen upon it I have to stop and marvel at the unmitigated gorgeous that is Katie McGrath. She is my most recent obsession, rendering me weak and wobbly with her delicious pale skin, dark hair combo pack. Also, girl can handle a sword.

So, let’s see your lists. Objectification is so much more fun when you share the results. Don’t forget to cast your vote by Friday.

I approve of SO much of your list. Especially Meryl. As always. As for my ten right now (of course, this list changes almost constantly. Also, picking only ten is REALLY difficult):

Dana Delany
Elizabeth Mitchell
Jennifer Beals
Julie Benz
Julie Bowen
Kate Winslet
Kristen Bell
Lady Gaga (Yes, actually. And the voice...)
Meryl Streep
Sara Ramirez

So many middle aged ladies that I am not nearly old enough for, so little time.

liz said...

Laurel Holloman is at the top of my list! Have you forgotten episode 506 (stirfry) or episode 509 in the elevator? HeartofArtemis

Gotta throw in Mariska and her occasional femslash partner Stephanie March. Dana Delaney is delectable. And because I am old and went to old schools, I give you Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, Diana Rigg as one of the original asskicking babes Mrs. Emma Peel, and from the land of sport, the delightful Evonne Goolagong, who played tennis with grace and a palpable sense of joy.

Shayla said...

1. Zoe Saldana - I love her passion. And her body.
2. Olivia Wilde - Words cannot describe how fast I run home Monday nights to watch "House".
3. Lena Headey - Watching "Imagine Me & You" was literally the turning point in my newly gay life.
4. Jada Pinkett Smith - Have you seen "The Women"?
5. Anna Torv - After watching her make out with another woman on Fringe, I'll never stop watching.
6. Jennifer Biel - nuff said.
7. Michelle Rodriguez - You never forget your first crush.
8. Sarah Shahi - I don't even want to talk about it.
9. Sara Bareilles - Her talent and her humor are all I need.
10. Angie Harmon - that voice...

Speaking of women with pale skin, dark hair, who know how to handle a sword, daggers or just plain kick ass with whatever's handy, I recommend Bridget Regan. She's got me swoonin' so hard, I can't think of any other names to put on my list.

I am so glad Jennifer Beals and Lena are on your list. Lawdy. So fine.

Anonymous said...

um.. I don't know, no idea,
but if I see the actor, then I can tell,

I like some on the lists but
not that crazy about.

I guess there is something that I like
maybe lesbian cultural style? something nice..?
and I also have some dislikes in general.
It means some manners maybe, there is something
that I feel kind of uncomfortable.

It's not sexual things,
it's just kind of manner I guess.

and when people want to visible then
they'll do it.
if they don't want then
they won't do it.

thanks for the post.
have a nice day!

I like her sword, want to borrow it.
I think having a sword is very useful for a purpose.

Jane Lynch: incredibly funny, brilliant actress, TALL. Oh my goodness, Jane, let's get physical.

Janet McTeer: brilliant actress, TALL, played Vita Sackville-West and she's as lovely and kind in person as you could wish.

Fiona Shaw: brilliant actress, and I love me some fab Irish accent.

Tilda Swinton: brilliant actress, played V Woolf's Orlando and I simply can't resist her looks. That hair-do ...rrrrrr. I hate the fact that she signed that petition though.

Eve Best: my latest crush. I've only recently discovered her on Nurse Jackie.

Kristin Scott-Thomas: brilliant actress and she has the most beautiful cheekbones ever.

Diana Rigg as Mrs. Peel: kick-ass, leather-clad, sporting a delicious accent. Oh, and of course she's brilliant and tall.

Mmm, I see a pattern develop here ;)

Lena Headey should be in the top 3... definitely.

Emily said...

I've never posted on here, but I just recently started reading this religiously. I have been thinking long and hard (*cough*) about this... so here it goes:

1. Olivia Wilde - The eyes. And everything else. I go crazy just thinking about her.
2. Jessica Stroup - Eyes. She's just totally gorgeous.
3. Evangeline Lilly - One of the many reasons I'm obsessed with Lost. My longest crush of all these.
4. Laura Vandervoort - A new edition recently due to V. I have fantasies about her and Jessica Stroup. No shit.
5. Kate Beckinsale - No one ever looked hotter as a vampire in tight leather. And she's British.
6. Katie McGrath - I do watch Merlin, and she is one of the reasons why. So mesmerizing.
7. Lindsey Vonn - Athletic and sexy. Doesn't get much hotter than this.
8. Kristin Kreuk - Don't laugh, I have fantasies of her and Olivia. Eurasian delicacy.
9. Carrie Underwood - Perfect. Especially after seeing her in person twice.
10. Lady Gaga - She should rightfully be higher up, seeing as she's my idol and I love her to pieces.

Not to make this the longest post ever, but I just thought I'd share that I found this site a couple of weeks ago while searching for pics of Olivia Wilde... with a lack of clothing. Embarassing, but hey, I'm 17. And I love this blog. :)
