Premiere’s List: 40 Most Handsome Hollywood Men

Chopped, modified, and borrowed from By: Staff, 08/21/2009 11:51 am

Mentally, I cross off the guys that still look like kids (at least to me). What’s left are these guys – in no particular order – that are a little rough around the edges (some might be geezers to y’all):

  • Bradley Cooper,
  • Ryan Reynolds,
  • Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson,
  • Johnny Depp (I just love him, it’s not about the looks anymore),
  • Eric Bana (goofy sexy),
  • Aaron Eckhart (slobber / drool),
  • Idris Elba (sorta has a sneaky vibe, but nice to look at),
  • Daniel Craig (fugly sexy),
  • Dennis Quaid,
  • Ed Burns (I can’t stand him, but yeah, I’d do him),
  • and old school handsome George Clooney (I like looking at him, not really interested in touching).

The other guys: Meh.

My snarky comments are under the picture captions.

Update: I tell you, the ladies added way way hotter additions than what Premiere came up with. See the comments section. 😀

1. James Franco

Mr Petulant and Sulky

2. Robert Pattinson

Here today. Gone tomorrow.
Here today. Gone tomorrow. Keep that hope alive.

3. Bradley Cooper

This picture does him no justice. I'd hit that.

4. Hugh Jackman

He's likeable. Handsome? Sorta.

5. Josh Duhamel

The guy leaves me dry. He's okay.

6. Ryan Reynolds

He really should stop wearing clothes.

7. Jake Gyllenhaal

I want to lobby Congress to pass legislative to keep him from "acting." Dude cannot act his way out of a paperbag. Always the same expression throughout an entire movie. As for being handsome: Meh.

8. Christian Bale

He's good looking, but the "crazy" wipes it away. How could Premiere leave out Sam Worthington?

My addition: Sam Worthington

He's not on the list! Are these people nuts?

9. Channing Tatum

Is it the steroids? Is he John Cena's mini-me? Probably.
John Cena will kick your ass!

10. Orlando Bloom

He's never going to look like an adult.

11. James Marsden

Good looking guy, he just never looks right on screen. Do they do it on purpose?

12. Brad Pitt

Mr. Smug, Smirky, and Annoying

13. Jamie Foxx

Chinese Shar Pei aka Jamie Foxx

14. Gerard Butler

Not actually handsome, but he is an entertaining actor.

15. Joseph Gordon Levitt

He's been an old man his entire life. Ease up on the recreational drugs dude.

16. Zac Efron

My how he's grown.

17. Chris Pine

I give him props for nailing the Captain Kirk-a-tude correctly.

18. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

I wont hold my breath that half-negro will ever co-star a real black woman as his love interest. He's still fine though.

19. Jonathan Rhys Meyers

I don't get the attraction for this guy, but I wont hate on him. He's a good actor.

20. Jay Hernandez

¿quién es este? Who is this? Never heard of the guy.

21. Robert Downey Jr.

Downey's got "crazy man" eyes.

22. Denzel Washington

At least he's not afraid of co-starring with a black actress. Much love, Denzel!

23. Johnny Depp

Ever since 21 Jump Street, still love the guy. Don't be afraid of the sisters Johnny, at least co-star with one in a major flick (the pirate franchise doesn't count).

24. Leonardo DiCaprio

For the longest time I still thought he was in his 20s. He is an old man though!

25. Emile Hirsch

Sorry. He looks like a woman to me.

26. Chris Messina


27. Paul Rudd

He reminds me of Jason Bateman.
The brother of Paul Rudd?

28. Eric Bana

So hot. And I forgive him for the Hulk movie.

29. Tyrese Gibson

Think we'll ever see a black woman with his features get work like him? Oh, I didn't think so either. I was wondering if he now has in his contract to not have any black women as his co-star. Just wondering.

30. Aaron Eckhart

(Drool / slobber) I forgive him for working with Gwenyth Paltrow, I guess he needed the work.

31. Gael García Bernal

Great actor. Willing to do any role. To the point where it is disgusting. Is he handsome? After a few drinks. Probably.

32. Idris Elba

Good looking, but he has such a "I'm sneaky" vibe about him.

33. Daniel Craig

Totally fugly. Totally sexy. Watch him walk.

34. Ryan Gosling

He lacks gravitas. He cannot carry a film.

35. Josh Lucas

The little brother of Matthew McConaughey. Just kidding.

36. Dennis Quaid

Looking good old man. I would hit that.

37. Milo Ventimiglia

Meh. I suspect he got Simone killed off of Heroes.

38. Ed Burns

Irritating voice. Irritating man. Yeah, I'd do him.

39. George Clooney

Great actor. Nice to look at.

40. Ewan McGregor

Like Rhys Meyers, I don't get the attraction factor, but he's a decent actor.

Movie Weekend: The Entertainment Bind

I’m contemplating a couple of movies to see tomorrow.

Why? I’m the Scrooge of Halloween. Nothing works my nerves like rude, ungrateful brats, looking for candy. They’ll ring the doorbell until, I swear, it could be heard in the next county. They’ll complain about not receiving enough sugary treats, or don’t bother to say, “Thank you.”

Do I want to spend my money on these critters? No.

Movies to Consider

There’s quite a few “black” films, or which has a black lead, out in release right now, or maybe coming soon.

  1. Law Abiding Citizen,  
  2. Precious,  
  3. Black Dynamite,
  4. Good Hair,
  5. and because I like horror flicks, Paranormal.

Good Hair

I’m indifferent to Chris Rock. His high-pitched, squeaky voice is an unwelcoming, unmanly, distraction. I have no compelling reason to see anything he’s “acting in”, directed, or has any involvement with. The one role he played well was a crackhead in New Jack City. Very realistic. He has this emaciated, dry mouthed, crazy look down to a science.

Aside from becoming a few shades lighter (doesn’t every black male in Hollywood do this?), he looks exactly the same. One would think with his money, he would get more work done.

Based on clips from Good Hair, which makes me feel I’ve seen the entire movie, I don’t get what’s so revealing. Black actresses / entertainers wear a lot of weaves and wigs. Everyone who sits under hot lights in the industry does, even the men.

I think Chris has figured out if he produces a movie mocking black women, a sizable number of them will come out in droves to support it. You know, under the guise of, “Let’s help a brotha out. ‘Cause if we don’t support films like this others won’t be made.”

And folks still fall for that okey-doke? I’ll be happy if there is never another comedic film targeting black women. Let’s strike Good Hair off my list.

Black Dynamite

It’s a remake of a 1970’s film. I’m fond of black exploitation films. At least the two or three I remember as a child. Back then, there were a wide variety of stories, characters, issues, and some were poignant. Aside from glorious, delicious Afros, and obscure street lingo, what would there be for me to enjoy in Black Dynamite?

I will wait for the DVD. And I will shed no tears, if because I didn’t support this film, another one won’t be made.


I don’t like films like this. I cannot stand them. I don’t even read books like this. The Color Purple was my first and last. Here’s my term for it: abuse pornography.  

Hollywood loves movies about horrendous sexual and domestic abuse, genocide, the evils of war, and what-not. They want to pretend we’re all going to be endowed with awareness, sensitivity, and progressive minded action regarding these manipulative topics.

Really? What’s on the news every night besides deadly body counts, horrid abuse, and devastating crimes?

I have a rebuttal for people who think this opens up the compassion vein in people. No, it does not. Dysfunctional behavior is repulsive and repellent.

If people are acting bizarre, then they are acting bizarre. Abuse as an excuse doesn’t work. The average Jane / Joe is not equipped, trained, as a psychologist to diagnose people’s behavior. Plus, it is irrational to assume nearly everyone was raped by their parents, drug addicts, or are absolute pathetic victims of circumstance.

In aid of what, would this thinking do? There’s nothing new here, moving along.

Law Abiding Citizen

Jamie “shar-pei” Foxx

Hmmm. Gerald Butler is the man from 300. He loves black women. Unfortunately, he’s paired with beady-eyed, Chinese shar-pei face, Jamie Foxx. This is a tough decision.

Hmmm. Gerald plays good guy turned revenge seeking angry man.

Hmmm. A straightforward, thrill seeking, ultra-violent film. He makes things go boom.  No thinking is required.



Made on the cheap. Reminds me of The Blair Witch Project, which made me dizzy more than scared. I watched it with too many interrupts the first time (at home). The only thing I don’t like is the look of high definition “made at home” films. If I want to see poor quality, cheaply made, shoddy entertainment I watch YouTube.

It’s gotten good reviews by the movie audiences. Hmmm. Horror flicks. I like that joke Eddie Murphy made about horror films and white people. Poorly paraphrased here, “If there’s a ghost saying, ‘Get out!’ I’m not staying around to investigate! I’m leaving!”

And that’s what gets me, why stay if there are scary things happening in the home?

Paranormal picture: this is by Paramount Pictures, made for only $15,000.
