While it has been said that it is much easier for me to choose females I am attracted to than males, as far as famous people go, I still found it difficult for this list for a completely different reason. Â Whittling things down to ten females was harder than it was in finding ten males to do the same thing. Â A lot of people could have easily made this list but I have a sort of type that I like and I tended to gravitate towards those who make me bite my lip and react fondly – whether because of their personality, acting, appearance, or all of the above.
This one is going to be interesting, so without further ado, again in ascending order from 10-1, least to most…
Rosario Dawson is one of those flawless beauties that you often don’t even understand how beautiful they are until you see them in action. Â I can’t remember when exactly I first fell in love with her, but she was one of my favourite parts of Sin City, even if it was a relatively small part, and I cannot help but adore her in Clerks 2, being that she made a good portion of that film much more bearable than it would have been otherwise (not to denigrate the film itself, just saying.)
There’s something about the smoothness of her skin, silkiness of her hair, and the general shape of her that just kind of does it for me. Â She has these full lips and this way of smiling and speaking that makes her more attractive than she would seem at first glance.
This isn’t to say that she doesn’t have an immediate beauty when you see her, but she seriously seems like the type of woman I’d hang out with, be friends with, and generally shoot the shit with, which is kind of an awesome quality. Â Right?
While Kat Dennings easily fits into what I’d consider my preferred body type (though it has been pointed out that it is not ALWAYS my preferred body type) there is something else about her that makes her so utterly appealing. Â She has this awkward – but not too awkward – grace about her. Â Like she’d trip over her own feet and laugh about it, and maybe even blush, but be able to handle that kind of joke being made the next day, or the next week, or for the rest of her life.
She seems the type of woman who would be amazing to sit around with and make pointless jokes about stupid things for as long as we possibly could.
While she may not be the world’s best actress, when she’s in a movie it feels a lot better than it should be (The House Bunny having her, Emma Stone, and Anna Faris kind of makes that movie alone rewatchable for me) and I find her crazy appealing in most of her roles.
Yes, her bust is a point of topic in its size and awesomeness, but really, even if she didn’t have that, I kind of dig her large eyes and full lips. Â She’s appealing.
WithÂ Scarlett Johansson, it feels a bit like she’s slipping out of my grasp as far as a hot commodity goes. Â It’s not that I dislike her now, but she’s been in less roles that I feel utterly compelled to like her in – her acting is fine, I just… don’t tend to gravitate towards what she does now. Â Black Widow being an exception, as the Avengers was an amazing film on its own, I feel like I haven’t truly adored her in something since Ghost World, even though there was the Nanny Diaries movie that was somewhat acceptable.
She is, however, insanely attractive, between blonde and redhead I still find her delectable in that sense. Â She has a shape that I like, a face that I kind of adore, and her singing voice is much better than one would expect. Â Like I said, I don’t dislike her, I just find she’s slipping down the list in lieu of girls who’ve made their way further into my heart and mind.
My love for Emmy Rossum should have began when she was Christine in The Phantom of the Opera, but honestly it didn’t really cement itself until she became Fiona Gallagher in Shameless.
Her voice is a huge thing to me, the fact that she was Christine really should have been a driving force, as voices tend to help equate to hotness for me, but Christine as a character is a meh point to me, so it took her being the hard-done-by girl who had to raise her whole family and give up her own life to make sure they stayed afloat that started making me really pay attention to her.
The character of Fiona is probably the main reason I love Emmy, but her voice really is out of this world, she can sing beautifullyÂ and ended up being a face claim to one of my favourite characters in the fact that her role in Shameless was perfectly outfitted and her voice was what I wanted for this dancer/singer I had.
She seems like she’d be one of the nicest people to hang around and I could honestly see myself being friends with a woman much like Emmy, so really, it was no contest.
One of the first things I ever said about Emilia Clarke was… that I didn’t find her attractive without the white hair of Daenerys, her role in the Game of Thrones television series. Â It’s a bit funny since I find myself biting my tongue at being so attached to the character that I couldn’t see how truly beautiful this woman is.
Seriously! She’s statuesque and graceful, but just drops by friends’ houses even now that she’s famous to hang out and take pictures and just generally being a good person. Â I even found it baffling that she was dating Seth MacFarlane. Â I don’t find him horribly unattractive, but it makes me think that she really does appreciate people in her life who don’t take themselves too seriously and those who can make her laugh. Â Which is an amazing quality.
She will forever be my Mother of Dragons, but now I can see past the white wig and into the beauty of a woman who is truly just… amazing.
If there is anyone in this list who ages amazingly well – which there are probably several – I think Eliza Dushku would likely be at the top of that one. Â Though yes, she has aged somewhat, she still doesn’t look too far from what she looked like in her role as Faith in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is just… ridiculous to me. Â To be that beautiful for that long really should be illegal, and retaining a down-to-earth attitude to boot? Just crazy.
She’s one of those celebrities who I started following on twitter – at least when I gave a poop about twitter – and watching her respond to her friends and fans was just heart-melting, to know that a woman can care that much about the people around her knowing what she has to offer is just really spiffy to me.
I remember first seeing her in That Night, and thinking that, since we were somewhat similar in age, she was rather cute and I wished I could be like her. Â It took a while for her to grow up, and me as well, but she did it far better than I did and definitely became a force to be reckoned with. Â Being one of Joss Whedon’s favourites, can it?
Nah, I didn’t think so.
I don’t know when most people started loving Lauren Cohan, but I do know that it’s kind of a thing now, especially since her debut in The Walking Dead and the way she owns that role. Â However, I know that mine started when she was playing Rose in The Vampire Diaries and was absolutely my favourite character in that series, and still is. Â She was so short-lived it was almost ludicrous, but she remains to this day the top reason I kept watching that show in hopes that she’d show up in flashbacks or what have you.
She’s a dork, she’s a geek, she’s something that people find appealing in this day and age, and she’s absolutely gorgeous to boot. Â Her features aren’t perfect, or ideal as some might say, but they are definitely perfect for who she is and how she carries herself. Â I find her to be the true epitome of the nerd goddess – fuck off, Felicia Day, I’m kind of tired of your constant pandering to the lowest common denominator in your nerdiness… also your attitude – in that she seems fully capable of not taking herself too seriously and remaining with her feet on the ground even with the amount of attention things have gotten her.
She may not constantly talk about all her nerdy pursuits and throw out the term of being a nerd or geek or dork at anyone (which also brings me to being over the adorkable Zooey Deschanel) but she seems that way to me, and I shall forever find her lovely for it.
Ah, Emma Stone, a woman after my own heart. Â As with most of the women in this list, she stars in roles that I absolutely adore her for, being able to go from playing the love-interest of some pretty important people to believably playing an awkward sorority sister, all the way to playing the emotional role in a film that was touted for it’s absolutely beautiful story.
It’s hard to think of a reason to dislike this woman, especially with her having been quoted as saying:
I think the number one thing that I find important is the importance of honesty with your friends and your parents, if you can be. But I think that telling people how you really feel, being who you truly are, being safe and taking care of yourself is the most important thing. (source)
I mean really, she’s honest to who she is, she’s beautiful, she’s funny, and she’s fully aware of the impact she has and takes it to heart when she’s presenting herself to the public. Â Who wouldn’t love that?
Jennifer Lawrence is many things: beautiful, my spirit animal, intelligent, a bit lazy yet hard-working, lovely, funny, and fully capable of not taking herself too seriously. Â I seriously fell in love with her, not because of her role in any certain movie, but of who she was outside of that. Â Yes, I saw her in the Hunger Games and her acting was superb, but Katniss didn’t make me love Jennifer – Jennifer did.
After I learned a bit more about her, and truly sat down to look at the beauty of her, I found out that she really was someone to watch, and I think so far my favourite film that I’ve seen her in was the Poker House, which is a mix of heartbreaking and awe-inspiring on her part and the way she handles that role so beautifully.
My best friend has this thing where whenever a gif of her shows up, he has to show it to me and equate it to how he pictures me – not that he thinks I’m as beautiful as she is, though he might say something like that because he loves me even if it isn’t true – but because of the fact that she is so incredibly weird and quirky and gets quoted saying the most random things and then seeming both flustered and proud of these things at the same time.
It’s hard not to love someone who someone sees as very much like you, and I know that sounds a bit self-loving, but really, she is so much more than I could ever be, even as a down home girl from Kentucky, one of the many things we share.
I cannot get enough of her and don’t expect to any time soon.
When it comes to focusing on Christina Hendricks, most places go right for the breasts – which, to be fair, are kind of AMAZING, but I digress. Â She is beautiful because of her face, because of her hair, because of her voice, because of the way she carries herself, because she drinks scotch, because she has poise, because of her grace… seriously, I could go on for days.
It’s one of the reasons I chose the pic I did, so the focus wouldn’t be on the beautiful expanse of her… heaving bosom, but instead on the lines of her face, the colour of her eyes, the way she wears her hair,a dn honestly the fact that she looks amazing in a turtleneck (I’m a sucker for high-collars.)
There are many attributes to adore about this woman, including being the ever loved and hated YoSaffBridge in Firefly, and the both lusted after and eyed with envy Joan from Mad Men, but honestly it just takes a few seconds of listening to interviews she’s done, looking at the people she surrounds herself with, and understanding how she feels about herself to realise that she is more than just a nice pair of breasts and a cute smile.
Most people have criticised her for disliking being called full-figured, and being a fat girl from the middle of nowhere, I can understand a bit of that… but I can also see her side of it. Â Full figured was a term made up by women to describe themselves, it was made up by someone else to describe fat women in a way that makes them want to buy these shiny clothes that’ll make them feel oh so curvy instead of as chubby as they might really feel. Â It’s a label as much as any other – if she wants her weight to not be focused on at all and instead focus on the weight of her character, more power to her.
Yes, I realise there will be points made about ‘maybe she shouldn’t show off her boobs as much if she doesn’t want her weight focused on’ and all I have to say to that is go bonk yourself merrily in the bum. Â It’s like saying she can’t be proud of her body without making it a point of scrutiny for everyone to pick at.
Really, I just love her for feeling she can speak her mind but not managing to denigrate anyone else in the process. Â Being proud of her curves without denouncing the beauty of fit women as well. Â She finds her body beautiful for her, and bless her, so do I.
Okay, I believe I got way more long-winded over my females than I did over my men, but this really concludes this list. Â As much as I’d love to make honourable mentions, it would fill an entire page and then I’d start rethinking the order and women I have now, and I feel quite satisfied with the list as it is.
I hope it was a somewhat enjoyable read for those of you who do read it, and I know a lot of these women are a change from what I had before, but I think my tastes are slowly slipping into different ways as I age. Â This’ll be the hottest of 2013, unless I feel the need to revise it later this year.
