My (Not So) Secret Crush on Hugh Jackman’s Chest/ Jan 2011

I like a man who isn’t afraid of his chest hair.

Okay, so this is not the most forward (make that forward-thinking) thing I will ever say, but it’s true.  I like a man with a sprinkling of short, dark, curly, man-smelly hair on his chest.  My gal-pals and I have exchanged thoughts on this briefly, and they strongly prefer the hairless chest.  In fact, my friend C has mocked me for getting silly at the sight of chest hair peaking from an actor’s shirt (because, you know, God forbid I should acknowledge my weakness in public).

Hugh Jackman is an excellent example.  But then, he is an excellent example, period, no matter what, if anything, is the topic of discussion.

Visually, he can pull off rough and rugged (any and all of the X Men flicks, but especially X Men Origins: Wolverine, where he wears flannel–“Lesbian lingerie”, as (The Delicious) Brian Kinney of QAF puts it (oh, don’t start complaining about the merits, or lack-there-of, of those films; that’s for another, less hormone-crazed, man-hungry post, don’tcha think?)) , refined and flustered (Kate and Leopold, as the delicious Duke of Albany), and daily casual.  If you’re unsure as to which is my favorite, scroll up and re-read the first sentence.

Gratuitous Man Pics: Daren Kagasoff

by d


You’re about to be inducted into a fan club that, until now, was only for those silly or masochistic enough to watch The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

This is Daren Kagasoff. He plays Ricky, the guy who knocked up the titular American Teenager. His character starts out as a highly suspect, Grade A jerk, but has morphed into one of the sanest, most responsible characters on the show.

And, all the while, Kagasoff has portrayed him perfectly. Nearly every other actor, from Molly Ringwald to Francia Raisa, has had moments where they sound forced or cheesy. Kagasoff’s Ricky began on shaky ground, but now he has the character down. When Ricky is on screen, I am looking at Ricky, not Kagasoff. I am able to truly believe that this is more than a character, he is a person who has a life when he’s not on screen. He has strong convictions, his own moral code, deeply held fears and desires.

And by GOD, the man is sexy.

Gratuitous Man Pics: Sean Biggerstaff

by d

Way back in the dark ages (2001-2002), when F and I were in high school, the first Harry Potter movies came out. A friend of ours immediately picked out the only male of acceptable age and attractiveness, in a sea of otherwise ineligible ten year olds and old men.

He was Oliver Wood, captain of Harry Potter’s Quiddith team (that game where they fly on broomsticks). For girls not interested in slogging through the books, he was one of the only reasons to watch. Sadly, Oliver graduated from Hogwarts when Harry was in his third year.

BUT! We’ve just learned that Oliver Wood, played by Sean Biggerstaff (Yes, you’re reading that right, his names are Wood and Biggerstaff. ) will have a “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it part in the last Harry Potter.” I remembered our days of yore, sitting around the lunch table making crude jokes about big wood. So of course I looked him up again.

Oh, my god, Sean Biggerstaff has gotten hotter. Like, way hotter.

Old Spice Guy Talks Back: The mascularity of it! [Updated as more awesomeness is found]

by d

If I were an obnoxiously rich and spoiled heiress planning her Sweet 16 with a suite of MTV cameras following me around, I would not ask for midgets, the resurrected Beatles, or even enough chocolate to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

I would ask for Isaiah Mustafa, live, in a towel, poolside, to say excellent things to me all night. Like these.

Gratuitious Male of the Week

by f

So this morning, a very negligent Subterfusex poster named F thumbed through the New York Times magazine while she was on the elliptical. Yes, I know. I visit the gym, though the occurrence is much rarer than it should be.

But then I saw this man’s face and my heart started pounding for reasons not directly related to exercise.
