I was tagged by blogger MIB (of MIB’s Instant Headache) to participate in the Five Flaming Hotties blog game thingymabob. So here are the rules as that’s a requirement and I don’t want a kitten to die or something if I don’t post them:
– Mention the name of the blog you were tagged by, as well as the creators of this game Realweegiemidget Reviews and Thoughts All Sorts, linking back to all blogs involved and including the picture above.
– List five of your greatest hotties from TV and/or film, i.e. crushes/objects of your affection, including musicians or sports stars too.
– Tell us how you were “introduced” to them and why you like them/what appeals.
– Add some appealing pictures.
– Tag seven bloggers for their Five Flaming Hotties.
– Post the rules.
Well, I’m not going to tag people but anyone who reads this is free to participate if they choose to do so. What can I say? I’m more of a dog person anyway. 😉
I must confess that I’m old and not exactly full of lust for any famous people anymore (other than Chris Hemsworth). And, lately, it seems like we’re finding out that a bunch of them are disgustingly horrible people (although we probably suspected that already), which makes doing a list like this even more difficult. I’m already thinking “Oh man, I listed The Cosby Show as one of my favorite TV shows in an old post on this blog as well as posting a Kevin Spacey Top Ten. Am I going to have to go deleting old posts now that we’re finding out that Hollywood is nasty???” I’d probably have to lose half my blog content. Just make good movies & be good people, dammit!
Okay – I’ll pick five hotties & I sincerely hope that they’re nice people in real life. Because, although it sounds like bullshit, what turns me on the most is 1) Someone who is genuine & honest and who can be trusted (my biggest pet peeves are arrogance, phoney people & backstabbers) 2) Someone with a great sense of humor and 3) Someone with a brain and common sense (number three seems especially hard to find these days). I also like laidback people who aren’t full of drama. Fucking chill, people! I feel like the world is completely fucking insane at the moment. Seriously – I’m struggling to do this post because I’m too annoyed lately to be able to do something lighthearted & fun like this.
Okay. Shut up, woman! Let’s just do this Hotties thing. I contemplated putting both men & women in this list as I find a lot of women very beautiful although I’m not attracted to them. But I’ll stick to men since that’s my thing. Unless they’re assholes – I’m not one of those girls who likes the mean guys. Instant turn off!
Wait. You know what? I’ve changed my mind. I’m going to list fictional movie characters I like based on personality as well as looks. I need to know a guy isn’t an asshole before I can decide if I actually find him attractive and that’s the honest truth. Fictional characters can’t let me down! Lloyd Dobler will forever be nothing but a sweetheart. So here we go…
5. Jake Ryan in Sixteen Candles. Played by Michael Schoeffling.
As far as looks only, Jake Ryan was my ideal hunk as a teen. Brown hair, brown eyes, perfect face (although, looking at him now, he seems a bit too “handsome dull”). He’d have been higher on this list at one point but, although he was sweet to the nerd girl, his personality was a bit “handsome dull” as well. I’m also pretty sure that Jake Ryan was a meathead jock getting by on a C average and he didn’t seem to have much of a sense of humor. So, he was really only “nice” & “handsome”. There’s not enough going on besides the good looks but I’d be lying to myself if I excluded him from this list. All girls my age had a huge crush on the completely unattainable Jake Ryan. (Because, honestly – there’s no fucking way that a “Jake Ryan” would like the quiet nerd girl in real life).
4. Lloyd Dobler in Say Anything. Played by John Cusack.
THE perfect (and, of course, fictional) boyfriend. And, unlike Jake Ryan, he felt much more realistic. It felt like he could be MY boyfriend. But Lloyd Dobler holding that damn boom box over his head ruined boys for me throughout my teens & early twenties. No one could actually match up to that. I know there are some very nice guys in the world but I certainly wasn’t surrounded by any in late 80s/early 90s Midwest America. My school had no Lloyd Doblers! We had asshole versions of Jake Ryan (minus the insanely handsome thing).
3. Kyle Reese in The Terminator. Played by Michael Biehn.
Where the hell can a girl find a cute, sensitive virgin willing to risk his life and travel into the past to save her from a killer robot? Is that really too much to ask? We all deserve a Kyle Reese! And a Dwayne Hicks who will try to protect us from aliens even though we’re kick-ass ladies who can protect ourselves from those bitches…
2. Mark Hunter (Hard Harry) in Pump Up The Volume. Played by Christian Slater.
Hard Harry was one of my absolute biggest movie crushes when this movie came out. I wanted to be Samantha Mathis in this movie & to make-out with sweet, shy, sensitive Mark BUT, at the same time, I identified more with Mark and wanted to be a female version of his quiet teen who came out of his shell while raising hell as an unknown pirate DJ.
Honorable mention: Christian Slater’s Adam in Untamed Heart. Where can I find a sensitive boy with a baboon heart who brings me Christmas trees?!?
1. Chris Hemsworth. In anything & everything. Played by a hot Australian.
Okay, sorry. He’s not fictional. But he’s so damn pretty. Look at him!!! I could stare at him all day. I’m so shallow. I was pretending I’m not shallow! To be fair, he seems like a nice guy. Like most people, I watch enough celebrity interviews to get an idea of what these celebrities are like (there are plenty I can’t stand). Hemsworth seems very laidback & is always sweet about his family. So I’ll assume he’s perfect and nice and funny (not sure about brainy, though?). And, as a bonus, he’s FLAMING HOT! 🙂 Oh, here’s my Thor: Ragnarok review. I sooooo love funny Thor…. ❤️🔥
Thanks for taking part! 🙂
No problem! Gave me an excuse to Google Chris Hemsworth pics… 😉 lol
Great choices. I totally get what you say by honesty and intelligence as being attractive features. I mean, I find Cusack character in “The Sure Thing” (1985) very hot. I know most people would say cheesy! and uh!, but it is precisely the genuineness which is appealing.
Thanks! Hmm… I have to say that I don’t remember The Sure Thing as I saw it so long ago. I really do need to rewatch it! I always loved Cusack… 🙂
Ha ha I wondered if Chris Hemsworth would be your No. 1. 😉 As a movie loving teen/college student I crushed on sooo many actors but now like you said I wonder how many are nice in real life. Chris seems like a nice, funny guy though – I think he’s one of the genuine ones! 🙂 Robert Downey Jr. is my favorite actor but I have no idea what he would he like to meet in real life!
You can’t top Chris Hemsworth! 😉 I do like Downey as well and he SHOULD be my crush since he’s actually from my era (Hemsworth is a bit young for me… Lol. But he’s so damn cute). I know Downey has a troubled past but I don’t know what he’s like as a person. Let’s just assume he’s a good guy! 🙂
Ah Chris Hemsworth, you beauty!
I should hate him for being so beautiful. But I just can’t. Look at that pretty face!! Ugh.
These tags are such fun! I agree with all of your choices. Keanu Reeves would be another good one. And John Cusack just gets yummier and yummier. LOL
Agreed! I do love Keanu too. And I just watched Bill & Ted’s with the kid & she loved it. Reminded me how much I loved Keanu at the time. 😉
1.Joanna Pettet..First discovered in The Girl With The Hungry Eyes episode of Night Gallery
2.Yvonne Craig..Batgirl and the green alien in Star Trek episode Whom Gods Destroy
3.Arlene Martel..First discovered in Demon With A Glass Hand episode of The Outer Limits and then later in the Amok Time episode of Star Trek
There are others but I went with the first that came to mind…and have never left.
Ha! I’ll have to go Google the first three to see if I agree… 😉 4 & 5 are certainly attractive, though. 🙂
Emma Wiggle’s attractive
Okay… I had to Google that! 😉

I have to do this list! I still (after so many years) find bad boys alluring. I can’t help it. Unfortunately that’s true in real life too. But nice choices. Especially ever-so-lovely C. Hemsworth.
Hi! Happy New Year! 🙂 Sorry I missed this comment. Hehe. I like bad boys too. Hemsworth seems so clean cut. But he’s so pretty….. 😉
Great choices!! 😘
Thanks, Emma! 😁 🙂 Hemsworth is a Hottie…
