Abe Vigoda is a super-sexy hottie but Im going to save that for a different list (after I visit a therapist, of course). Right now, Im going to concentrate on picking the 20 sexiest stars under 40. Ill include women as well as men mighty big of me and Ill make extra sure there isnt a single troll in the bunch. Promise!
Taylor Swift, 24
If I were a straight boy bander and yes, there is such a thing Id want to date lanky, lovely Taylor. Her looks are to die for, and its 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
Its 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. Ive 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 Johnnys favorite food is leftovers, and as for what he likes the most, its 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.
The pop queen is a beauty, especially since she cant 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 dont 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. Hes 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, hes 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,” Logans 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 McNallys comedy “Its Only a Play” on Broadway. As the coat-check guy at an opening-night party, he banters with Nathan Lane, and even though hes playing a pretty dim bulb, he lights up the room with his performance. Micahs version of Defying Gravity alone is sexy. And getting good reviews when youre also sharing a stage with Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, Stockard Channing, F. Murray Abraham and Rupert Grint, is extremely hot.
David Burtka, 39
Id pick Davids husband, Neil Patrick Harris, too, but Neil is over 40, so Ill save him for next time. Thats OK. The actor/chef/father is quite adorable in his own right and a very good marital catch, dont you think?
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 youd 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 shes still sexy, in all her ardor, talent, and hot beauty. And she will continue to ripen through the yearsI can just feel it.
Kristen Stewart, 24
People make jokes about Kristens eternal sullenness, but I happen to like her acting and Ive bothered to check her out in a whole bunch of non “Twilight” stuff shes 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 peoples dreams though theyd 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.
