As we say goodbye to 2013, we must reflect and pay homage to the players in the entertainment industry that made our hearts go aflutter.
Of COURSE they are talented, of COURSE they are smart …and stuff… but they are definitely not hard on the eyes either.
The fine folks here at Armchair Mogul (and friends) took a vote, and we picked the ten celebs that made us watch just a little bit longer this year!
So sit back and feast your eyes on OUR picks, in our Fourth Annual Armchair Hottie Awards: Top Ten of 2013! GET IT ON!
Jennifer Love Hewitt
We’re kicking this year off right, with The Client List’s ‘Hottie in Chief…’
I’ll just leave this here.
Fun Fact: Hewitt was almost cast opposite DiCaprio as Juliet in 1996’s Romeo + Juliet, but at the last moment, she lost the part to Claire Danes because the director felt she was not “modern” enough. We think she’s just fine thank you very much.
The God of Mischief who made a billion geek hearts swoon this year HAD to be on our list…
And he’s great with kids too!
Fun Fact: Hiddleston screen-tested for the role of Thor. He went on a strict diet and gained 20 pounds in muscle. However, Kenneth Branagh decided he was more suitable for the role of Loki. Thank you Kenneth.
Game of Thrones‘ Daenerys Targaryen has gone from submissive slave to utter badassery this year, and it was HOT!
The news just dropped that our lovely Emilia will be playing Sarah Conner in the Terminator sequel/reboot/remake/prequel trilogy.
Take a moment and watch the ‘Mother of Dragons’ kick all kinds of medieval booty.
Fun Fact: Clarke has said that if she weren’t an actress, she would be an architect or a graphic designer.
Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim‘s Charlie Hunnam set many heart aflutter this year…
Charlie is set to star in a horror movie with fellow Armchair Hottie Tom Hiddleston next year! The hardest part of writing this article was actually finding a picture of Hunnam with his shirt on. Don’t worry, he will have it off again in just a moment.
Here you go. Sorry about that.
Early casting rumors have put this sexpot as the lead contender for Aquaman. What do you think? Can he be the one to actually make Aquaman cool?
Fun Fact: For the film ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall,’ Jason Segel wrote the role of Aldous Snow with him in mind, but he dropped out due to not feeling the project was right for him. Russell Brand ended up getting the role.
The farmer’s daughter on The Walking Dead has made us a little more excited to watch this year…
Fun Fact: Cohan made her film debut ‘Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj” You remember that movie, right? No? Us either.
Between singing in “Les Mis”, slicing up bad guys in “The Wolverine” and garnering Oscar buzz in “Prisoners” we’d say Mr. Jackman’s basically got it all covered in terms of leading man material. Now if only he was insanely nice, physically jacked up and incredibly good looking…
For heaven’s sake look at that 45-year-old body. LOOK AT IT!
Jackman has played the character of ‘Wolverine’ in 7 movies so far, with rumblings of another one coming in the form of a sequel to The Wolverine.
Fun Fact: Jackman wasn’t originally supposed to play Wolverine! Dougray Scott was originally cast as Wolverine, but Mission: Impossible II required two extra months of shooting. Poor Dougray… hooray for everyone else!
Hot off her second stint as Lt. Uhura in “Star Trek: Into Darkness”, here’s a woman who’s bedeviled men on no less than THREE worlds! She’s so hot, even her CG avatar made it to our list one year!
Fun Fact: According to Box Office Mojo, the 21 movies that Zoe has starred in have made a total of $1,691,352,238. Holy schmokes.
We’ll confess, we don’t know a WHOLE lot about this scorching hot vigilante, but a million billboards and teen scream-tweets can’t be wrong!
Fun Fact: Amell’s first role was that of “spinning instructor” in Queer as Folk along side fellow Armchair Hottie Charlie Hunnam!
Is it true that pure talent can make someone attractive? Well it doesn’t hurt if they are already a hottie! Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany has our attention this year…
Fun Fact: Tatiana did comedic improv for 10 years and participated in the Canadian Improv Games.
Dwayne Johnson (The Rock)
That build. That smile. That career! From his sizzling debut as the most electrifying personality in sports entertainment (his words) to lending star power to reinvigorate BOTH the Fast & the Furious and G.I.Joe franchises, this guy’s had a hugely meteoric rise in Hollywood. No wonder they call him The Rock. Also, he told them to.
Fun Fact: The Rock’s $5.5-million paycheck for The Scorpion King in 2002 earned him a listing in the Guinness Book of World Records, as his salary was the highest for any actor receiving top billing for the first time.
