The Sexiest Man Alive

Daniel Craig, voted sexiest man aliveA poll of 4000 women by condom maker Durex has seen James Bond star Daniel Craig named as the sexiest man alive.

Apparently it was all that wet, shirtless stuff in the new Bond film that did the job. I haven’t seen it because 007 films aren’t my thing, but I could be persuaded to check it out simply to see what all the fuss is about. Certainly those promo shots of him at the beach make for some nice eye candy, but I’ve read several gushing reviews by female reporters that make regular mention of charisma, screen presence and indefinable sexual allure.

Of course, just to ramp things up, WOW report has photos of him nude.

Here’s the official list:
1. Daniel Craig
2. Clive Owen
3. Jude Law
4. Steve Jones
5. George Clooney
6. Johnny Depp
7. David Beckham
8. Robbie Williams
9. Orlando Bloom
10. Pierce Brosnan

The survey seems to be fairly British-oriented, perhaps due to the nationality of the women polled. I have no idea who number 4 placegetter Steve Jones is. Metro says he’s a “T4 Presenter” but I’m not even sure what that is.

A Google images search for Steve Jones pops up a number of candidates, some of them decidedly unsexy.

Of course, the big question on everybody’s chapped lips (well, mine, really) is why the hell isn’t Johnny Depp number 1? We’re talking Captain Jack Sparrow here. I mean, sure, Daniel Craig looks nice enough, but IS HE WEARING ANY BLACK EYELINER?

I rest my case.

Here’s a photo just to get the juices flowing.

Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow

Now… if I had to make a list of my own choices for sexiest men alive… it would be hard to choose. I can’t put it in any order, really, except of course for Mr Depp. But I can make a list of celebrities that I think have their own sexy thing happening. So:

* Johnny Depp – No further comment necessary
* Sting – Always been a fan
* Ewan McGregor – Likes to get nude in films, cheeky smile
* Viggo Mortenson – As long as he’s dishevelled with stubble and accompanying hobbit.
* Orlando Bloom – He’s very pretty
* Jamie Hyneman from Mythbusters – Ask another nerd. They’ll agree.
* Sean Connery – Yes, even at his age, he’s sexy.
* Brad Pitt – Still makes my list after all these years
* Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter is a hornbag… or at least, he will be when he’s 16… ahem.
* David Duchovny – Haven’t seen much of him lately, but I still watch my X Files DVDs occasionally so he makes my list.
* Robbie Williams – In spite of the ego, he’s very good looking. Shagable is probably the best word.

OK… so it took me a while to make that list, actually. Beyond the first four, I had to think hard. It all feels a bit juvenile really, even if it’s fun.

To be honest, those men are all lovely to look at, but the fact is that, for me, the sexiest man alive is my husband. No question about it.

Update 15 December: The Girl With A One Track Mind has an excellent post on the sexiness of Daniel Craig, plus some great comments about the way Casino Royalle caters to the female gaze.

Perhaps the first time since, ooh, American Gigolo, we finally, properly, get a male character that is represented as a sexual object, a desirous being, purely for the benefit of the viewer. And you know what? I approve.

Perhaps Mr Craig deserves his Durex title after all.
