Let's Hear it for the Boys
He's a painter, a poet, an actor, a dessert topping and a floor polish. Okay, maybe we've exaggerated a little on the whole floor polish thing, but make no mistake, Viggo Mortensen, with his Kirk Douglas cleft, his sky blue eyes, his very particular brand of bohemian soul, has been known to make ordinarily competent editors blush, stammer, and melt. Is it any wonder elves pine for him?
By all accounts, this guy's got a charmed life, complete with happy marriage, hybrid car, and the kind of golden boy looks that most movie stars could coast on for years. But Brad Pitt isn't just another insanely pretty face: He's got the comic grace of Jimmy Stewart, the seductive glint of Warren Beatty, and the all-American style of Steve McQueen.
Have you seen the biceps on this guy? No? Well, uh, check out his washboard abs. Still nothing? Fair enough. But self-described "asthmatic Jew" from New Jersey Jon Stewart has made The Daily Show the perfect way to end a night. In fact, we wouldn't dream of going to bed without him
There's something in the way he moves: his joy-fueled bounce as the Fresh Prince, his "float like a butterfly" footwork in Ali, his fearless stride in Bad Boys, Men in Black, and their sequels. Will Smith is a good time waiting to happen, and because he gladly takes us along, we'll overlook the fact that he saves his best moves for Jada.
He burst on the scene with the devil in his eye and a driver at his disposal. Complicated, compelling—the man is Big. We've seen the actor in round-the-clock repeats of Law & Order; we've seen him on Broadway, too. But months after Sex and the City loved us and left us, Chris Noth's indelible image of bluster and fragility lingers on.
English accent. Faded tight-leg jeans. Twenty-seven years old. For God's sake—just look at him! When it comes to boy toys, Demi can have Ashton. We'll stick with the hot-hot-hot Orlando Bloom.
