Winter Wonder Man Hop: My 5 Fav Hollywood Heartthrobs
But if I listed all the men in Hollywood that make my toes curl, this post would be never ending. So I chose my top five sexy Hollywood heroes that has not only been an inspiration to my own book heroes, but they have also made me laugh, cry, and sigh all in the same movie. And believe me, they come in many flavors. =)
Idris Elba. This man is too hot for words. I love how versatile his movie/TV roles are, whether it's Luther, Mandela, or his quick stint in the Office, he always delivers. Then again, with that sexy, deep baritone voice, chocolate skin, and of course sexy body, he can sell me on anything. *swoons*
Leonardo DiCaprio. Unbelievably talented. I just love watching him transform and bring me into his character's world. He's the kind of actor that doesn't let his looks run the show. Whether he's playing a slave owner or J. Edgar Hoover, he allows himself to become the character--and does so with raw passion--and that's what I love about him.
Dwayne Johnson. Also known as "The Rock"--and of course we all know why. And like his body, this wrestler-turned-actor has made a career shift that's been more then impressive. He's managed to pull off roles like the Tooth Fairy without making me cringe. A big, strapping guy showing off his soft side--how is that not swoon worthy?
Hugh Jackman. I swear if there was a picture in the dictionary for "Alpha Male", his would be right underneath. I have a weakness for the scruffy alpha male look and he definitely pulls that look off quite well. He has the looks, the body, and the heart, which makes the best choice for any romance novel hero. And that voice. A scruffy alpha hero that can sing... *sighs*
Ryan Reynolds. Both sexy and funny. And though he has a tendency to play in movies where he's pulling for laughs, this heartthrob can also pull off the alpha male role too. Don't let the GQ cover fool you. He's funny but he can be as badass and dominant as any leading hero. Safe House, anyone?
