There’re some achingly handsome men who have us instantly weak at the knees. And this Valentine’s Day, some of the sexiest men on the planet have our full attention and we’re ready to swoon over them.
So, while we have already drooled over Shah Rukh, Ranbir Kapoor and Akshay Kumar on our movie screens, this time we decided to look further. In fact, look towards the other side of the globe.
Yes, we’re talking everyone from classic Hollywood charmer Brad Pitt to chiselled dreamboat Ryan Gosling.
See the hottest men on our radar, men we want to make triple chocolate pancakes for, mad dance with and take dirty pictures with.
Just a heads up: This list is thoroughly opinionated and painstakingly personal. If you can handle topless sport stars (hello David Beckham!) and smoking hot musicians, you’re in for a real treat. If not, you’re going to miss some sexy snapshots ladies. Trust us.
Daniel Craig: Because the current 007 is so much more than James Bond.
He’s called a thinking woman’s totty, which is better than being a stupid woman’s totty or indeed no totty at all. Actually, Craig is pretty much everything we like in a man, we can’t think of any reason to no lust after him. Yes, we love him in his suits, but he is too ripped to be covered in them all the time. We want to see him get all flirty (and dirty) and there ain’t no better time for that than Valentine’s Day.
Justin Timberlake: Because the Cry Me a River singer slays us with his bedroom eyes.
We can’t think of a sexier man singing us a romantic V-Day tune. We’d love to go for a night-out with him just as long as he continues to bring Sexyback to the dance floor. He is the real deal (sorry Adam Levine, we love you too). It could be his piercing blue eyes or his chiselled features, but we think the sexiest part of Timberlake is his voice: Somewhere between a whisper and a melodic lullaby. He is an obvious choice, really.
Brad Pitt: Because his sexiness is off-the-scale hot.
He’s been a constant god-like figure in the movie business for decades now and this gorgeous man only gets better with age. Besides his mesmerising eyes and million dollar smile, the fact that he’s a brooding, caring father-of-six, who puts his wife and children first, means he’s just about our number one man in the world.
Ryan Gosling: Because he is the classic internet crush.
He’s everywhere and we’re certainly not complaining. After falling truly, madly, deeply in love with him during the most romantic hour and a half of our lives (not The Notebook, but Blue Valentine, of course), this dirty blonde haired beauty has had us enthralled ever since. We’re already dreaming of his thick coffee-coloured locks and those abs to die for. He only needs to take one glance at us to leave us weak at the knees.
David Beckham: Because he has been flashing up on our radar since the longest time.
Becks has four beautiful children, a Spice Girl for wife, inspires brilliant haircuts all over the world, played for almost half a dozen football teams and abs out for a range of high-profile ads. What is not to love? The best part: He only gets hotter with age (He’s 40). Heck he is the hottest sportsman ever. We’re totally bewitched by Mr Beckham. And want to channel our love for him on Valentine’s Day. It’s only natural he features among this throng of smouldering stars. Obvs.
Benedict Cumberbatch: Because he is an all-round great guy. And that’s hot.
And before we even get to the man himself, there is that name. It’s something out of PG Wodehouse, Harry Potter and a Mills and Boon historical romance rolled into one. Funny, talented, handsome in a public school boy sort of way, Cumberbatch has a sense of humour (which he chooses to use wisely, every now and then) we love. It’s hard to think of another fully-grown man who deserves the level of female devotion as Cumber’s. We want to (need to) spend time with this intelligent, sexy actor because we truly are one of his diehard fans, who hang on his every move. Can’t wait to delve into the world of Cumberlove this V-Day. So excited.
