Celebrity “Hot” Or Really Not?

I don’t go to the movies very often but I did see Spectre last week on Cheapie Tuesday.

I must admit, there is nothing like a movie full of explosions, fight scenes and action on a big screen. And Daniel Craig as James Bond fits the bill.

Which got me thinking about how certain celebrities are branded as “hot” but maybe really aren’t that hot.

Don’t get me wrong, Daniel Craig is excellent and hot as James Bond just like all of the other Bond actors over the years, though I think that for this particular franchise, it has more to do with the “attitude” of the character than actual attractiveness.

But is he really your definition of “hot” or do you think he is “hot” because media is telling you that he is?

I can think of a handful of celebrities named in the last People Magazine’s Hottest People list that I just don’t get.

I think that oftentimes the media brands “talented and attractive” or maybe even “talented and average” with “hot”.

Of course, we all have our personal preferences so this is my question:

Who is on your top three “hot” celebrities list?

And which of the celebrities considered “hot” today do you just not “get”?

  1. I get that everyone’s definition of “hot” is different so I try not to read to much into who the latest magazines say are “hot”. lol My daughter absolutely loves Channing Tatum but I don’t see the appeal there. Personally when I think “hot” I got toward Kenny Rogers (before the surgeries, now not so much), Nicholas Cage…that sort of hot. I guess maybe it also changes with age….

  2. My taste is kind of all over the place. I love Johnny Depp, always have, Jared Leto, and Henry Cavill – the new Superman. So I like offbeat, quirky guys, and just brute hotness, like Henry, have mercy. He is just, to quote Cher from Clueless, “brutally hot.”

  3. Oh Henry Cavill is eye candy for sure. I tend to lean toward talent more and doesn’t get Hollywood version of “hot” these days. Yet, I do like all the guys mentioned above with a add on of Idris Elba, Pierce Brosnan, and almost all action-packed hero. Lol!

  4. I don’t get the Hemsworth brothers, I mean they are handsome just not hot to me. I think hottest ever is Lenny Kravitz even before his pants split this year. And I’ve had a long time crush on Jonathan Rhys Meyers, David Beckham, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt. I’m sure there are others but I can’t recall right now
