Vix’s Top Ten Good Looking Famous Men - Dead or Alive.
What's hot and what's not.
Welcome to the top ten good looking famous men. They are wanted, dead or alive!
Let me begin by stating that this is my personal opinion. I have taken into account zero tabloid lists, Hollywood groupings, or any other possibly relevant sources. This is pure what looks good to Vix and I don’t expect everyone to agree. You will notice a total lack of blond men. That is not to be intolerant or prejudice against blonds in any way. I just prefer the darker haired variety of that gorgeous animal known as man.
10) John Travolta
I first saw him in Grease as a child. My aunt took my cousin and I to the movie and I can remember we stood in line way outside the building just to get in. It was more crowded than I had ever seen it. Some people remained standing the entire time. I was in love at the young age of 11 or so.
He made a few more movies in the day such as Urban Cowboy but was shot to teen heart-throb stardom when he took the role of Vinny Barbarino on Welcome Back Kotter. Time went by and he dropped off the radar for a while.
Boy and how did he explode in his come back role in the cult classic “Pulp Fiction.” I was much older by then, as was he, but he was still gorgeous. His bad guy character in the movie was totally lovable though scandalous. His real life has been wrought with hardship, struggle and tragedy.
He lost his child a few years back. My heart goes out to him. God bless you, John. No offense is intended by that. He is a devout member of the church of Scientology from all reports.
9.) Burt Reynolds
In his day, this man was the heartthrob of American women and girls throughout the land. He is best known for his role in Smokey and the Bandit. He was also totally loved for his role in other movies such as “The Longest Yard” and “Gator.” I believe the role that made him, however, was his co-staring role in “Deliverance.” That movie was and still is chilling.
Burt, in his many roles, was always handsome, always witty, and personified what is best in the American male while remaining human and less than perfect. I think that is part of why so many of us love him so much. Even today, he is still acting. His role in Boogie Nights was a new kind for him but he played it well. He was the bad guy in some ways but still managed to pull it off with style and grace.
8.) Taylor Lautner
OK. I’m pretty sure everyone knows who this guy is, but in case you don’t, he played Jacob in the Twilight movies.
Ladies, sadly here we have one that is just too young. Man, is he hot though!
Taylor is also not your typical Hollywood brat. He has a black belt, is active in helping America’s youth, and is just an all around good guy. Go team Jacob!
Even if I were blind he would be fine. That voice!
7.) Sam Elliot
I have to mention when speaking of Sam in a male hunk sort of way, personally, I think it only applies as he aged. I liked him after he went gray. Ladies, why is it some men just get hotter? I will never understand, but it is true.
Now, Sam has been in a ton of movies through the last few decades. I liked him best in Road House but also was endeared to his character in “The Golden Compass.” He has a wide range. Many a western has benefited from his participation. Not only does he have the rugged good looks, but his voice is smooth as silk in a rough, manly way.
In every movie I have ever had the privilege of seeing Sam in, he always plays the good guy. I have to love that. Usually there are some fight scenes thrown in to boot. He throws a punch like a real cowboy and he can take one. What's not to love? OK. OK. I know. It's all in the script. Isn't that part of the fun of watching though? Getting lost in the character, actually believing, if only for a short while, is what makes movies great. Sam has always been that for me.
6.) Steven Strait
This young hottie is best known for his work in three, count them three, movies. The one I liked best was 10,000 BC though the critics trashed it.
OK. So, he was not Shakespearean in his acting but he was a strong character that grew which would be exactly what was needed in the plot and setting. Further criticism of the movie revolved around the mix of animals from different periods in time. To me, this did not interfere with the story and nothing could interfere with how fine this guy is. He’s too young, but still way fine. He also starred in Coven and Sky High.
5.) Manu Bennett
This hunk of a man is also relatively new to fame and sweat dripping glory. He is best known for his role as Crixus in the Starz original series Spartacus - Blood and Sand, Spartacus -Gods of the Arena and Spartacus - Vengeance. His character is more than a bit hardheaded. He is one who keeps honor at the forefront of his thoughts. It is surpassed only by his devotion to the love of his life, Naevia. He is not what one would call a warm fuzzy but is rather a pit bull on steroids.
His unwavering dedication, hard work, and pursuit of excellence has adored him to the hearts of many a fan be they male or female. Anxious fans eagerly await his next deeds of courage and undoubtedly stubborn fits of determination as he pursues what was torn from him. Be sure to tune in for season three!
Oo La La!
4.) Jason Momoa
This guy is also relatively new to the Hollywood scene. He is best known for his roles in the HBO series Game of Thrones and the newly revised version of the eighties movie Conan the Barbarian. Pure eye candy describes him well. That is not to insult his acting abilities, but seriously, it’s hard to listen when he looks so fine. I think I have watched his version of Conan at least twice with the sound muted throughout and still enjoyed it immensely.
All kidding aside, his character on “Game of Thrones“, while starting as someone I disliked greatly, evolved and earned my admiration when he displayed courage, wit, and an undying loyalty to his bride while never budging off his “I’m all that” leadership with an iron fist attitude. I give him some leeway considering it was expected by the time and culture.
All in all, this man is too fine to do anything but be a raging success in film. I have to wonder if he was born with those shoulders. What workout program does he follow? Whatever it is, men, check it out!
3.) Clark Gable
Can we all just swoon? This man was handsome personified. He was smooth, dashing, debonair and the epitome of all things masculine for the time. I think he is best known for his role in Magaret Mitchell’s timeless classic Gone with the wind.
He co-starred with Vivean Leigh and Olivia de Havilland. I refuse to include the man who played Ashely Wilkes. He may have been a great actor and the like, but I never cared for his character. He distracted Scarlet from the oh so delectable Rhett. What was that woman thinking? I am not a fan of romance novels. This was the first one I ever read. Nothing of the genre ever came close to it. Perhaps that’s why I’m not a fan, typically. You can’t beat the best.
I know critics trashed it royally, but I really liked how Rhett and Scarlet hooked back up in the sequel. She grew up and he got over himself, somewhat. Ah, it makes one think true love will find a way.
2.) Rock Hudson
Well, what was he not known for? While at the end of life there was some controversy regarding his sexual preference, which really should not be anyone’s business but his own, he was still ten kinds of fine. And the voice was most yummy.
I liked him best in the movie Giant. His co-stars were James Dean and Elizabeth Taylor. Can you say five star? The movie was and still is a classic. While his character’s stubborn attitude and chauvinistic views were not endearing to me personally, they did typify what a rugged American, successful male of that time was thought to be like.
1.) Kevin Smith
Kevin became known when he played Aries, God of War on Xena - Warrior Princess. OK. I know some of you are saying… Cheese! Maybe so, but I loved the campy humor and root for the underdog theme. I too could have lived without the war cry.
Regardless, this man was drop dead gorgeous and I mean in a drool worthy kind of way. The leather outfits he typically displayed so well didn't hurt. His character was full of human foibles such as exceeding pride, arrogance, hubris, a sneaky nature, deceptiveness, manipulation and the list just goes on. None of it mattered. In the end, he came through, though it often took a good amount of prodding.
I guess it has been shown I like a specific type. It would best be termed, I suppose, as rugged and uncompromising with a heart that few see. Tall, dark and dashing is the motto. I don’t go in for the metro sexual, cultured or refined very much, but rather vastly prefer a man’s man. I think my fellow hubber Tammy Swallow would agree. Check out her hub Give Me a Cowboy Any Day- Why Today's Metrosexual Male is Unattractive to Women. I like someone who is real, rough around the edges, and stands for what he believes in. To me, personality is every bit as important as looks hence not including Sean Connery. If that doesn't make sense to you, check out his views on women. He is fine, but he loses major points every time he opens his mouth.
For all of you younger ladies out there, I would like to point out one time tested fact. Looks are not everything. That young man that treats you like a queen, never lies, works hard and you can trust with your life may not look that good now. Men grow into their looks. Looks fade. Character lasts a lifetime.
Now, in all seriousness, this is just to say it’s what I like in theory, as in to see on the tube. I am married to a beautiful, wonderful man who is in real life everything I like. He is my best friend. I would not trade him for ten of any man listed above. I hope God will bless all of you ladies with the love of your life for the rest of your life as well.
Looks, personality, honesty, a sense of humor...
