Abe Vigoda is a super-sexy hottie — but I’m going to save that for a different list (after I visit a therapist, of course). Right now, I’m going to concentrate on picking the 20 sexiest stars under 40. I’ll include women as well as men — mighty big of me — and I’ll make extra sure there isn’t a single troll in the bunch. Promise!

Taylor Swift, 24

If I were a straight boy bander — and yes, there is such a thing — I’d want to date lanky, lovely Taylor. Her looks are to die for, and it’s impossible to “shake it off”!

Ariana Grande, 21

The new diva in town has assurance and pipes that make her a big-lunged fembot for the downloading crowd.

Kerry Washington, 37

It’s a “Scandal” how hot Kerry is — on screen and off. She also happens to be extremely articulate and smart — always a plus. (And not something to be taken for granted. I’ve interviewed a lot of actors, LOL)

Zac Efron, 27

This is a big “duh.” Zac looks hot as hell. End of story.

Johnny Rapid, 20s

The 5-foot-6-inch gay porn star is a favorite of mine ever since I saw him be all frisky and fun in a rather vulnerable way in a recent documentary about the porn biz. Further research revealed that Johnny’s favorite food is leftovers, and as for what he likes the most, it’s “having sex and driving fast (not at the same time).” How can you resist this guy?

Andrea Riseborough, 32

Andrea worked with Madonna on that “W.E. movie,” and now she shines in “Birdman,” radiating a wonderful Renaissance quality with her wise eyes and glowing face. She seems like an emissary from a finer time.

Rihanna, 26

The pop queen is a beauty, especially since she can’t seem to turn out any flop records. Love her forehead — but basically I love all of her.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, 28

Some people watch “The Big Bang Theory” just to have a look at Kaley. I don’t watch it at all, but I did want to include a few people from current hit shows.

Ronan Farrow, 26

Whoever his father is and whether he ends up still having a TV show or not, Ronan is a fine-featured, well-spoken beaut. He’s one of those perfect-seeming creatures who make the earth more livable with his bone structure and intellect.

Shiloh Fernandez, 29

He plays the hunk in various movies, and believe me, he’s very well cast. That face! That bod! Hello, Shiloh!

Shailene Woodley, 22

Not your typical ingénue, Shailene radiates quirky charisma that makes her a screen hottie — and one with sensitivity and class. Her unfettered realness makes her an extra special treat.

Logan Lerman, 22

From “The Perks of a Wallflower” to “Fury,” Logan’s been adorbs — one of the freshest young actors to make an impact in recent years.

Jason Schwartzman, 34

A semi-nebbishy, often-bearded intellectual type, Jason is a different kind of sex symbol — one who exerts a sardonic pull on his fans, and who does so with wit and wry appeal, not surfer-dude looks and lots of winking.

Micah Stock, 25

Ohio-born Micah holds his own in an all-star cast in Terrence McNally’s comedy “It’s Only a Play” on Broadway. As the coat-check guy at an opening-night party, he banters with Nathan Lane, and even though he’s playing a pretty dim bulb, he lights up the room with his performance. Micah’s version of “Defying Gravity” alone is sexy. And getting good reviews when you’re also sharing a stage with Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, Stockard Channing, F. Murray Abraham and Rupert Grint, is extremely hot.

David Burtka, 39

I’d pick David’s husband, Neil Patrick Harris, too, but Neil is over 40, so I’ll save him for next time. That’s OK. The actor/chef/father is quite adorable in his own right and a very good marital catch, don’t you think?

Hozier, 24

The Irish musician who makes a powerful statement against gay bullying with “Take Me To Church” has a kind of unaffected, earnest glow about him. He is one hot piece of man — truly someone to believe in.

Bill Hader, 36

Comedians are rarely all that sexy — mainly because the jokes they dabble in stem from deep-seated despair — but Hader has alluring features and an impishly wacky way about him that makes him red hot. His mischievousness is extremely genial, and it makes him just the kind of clown you’d want to get to know better.

Marion Cotillard, 39

The Oscar-winning Frenchie is a far cry from the vampy, scampy Brigitte Bardot types of the past, but she’s still sexy, in all her ardor, talent, and hot beauty. And she will continue to ripen through the years—I can just feel it.

Kristen Stewart, 24

People make jokes about Kristen’s eternal sullenness, but I happen to like her acting — and I’ve bothered to check her out in a whole bunch of non “Twilight” stuff she’s proffered. And the woman simply has it.

Rosamund Pike, 35

Pale and pretty in a classy, British way, Roz is the “Gone Girl” of many people’s dreams — though they’d much rather have her visible and present. I bet some slightly pervy bookish types would love to see her making nice with Andrea Riseborough, hubba hubba.
