So, I'm a weird girl, and in coming up with my list of the sexiest movie characters, I realized just how weird I am. Because I'm limited to just a few of them, I know I've missed a lot, so I don't know, I may have to have a part 2 at some point. For the moment, this gives a pretty good cross section of my tastes, I think. Some of these characters are outlandish, some of them are actually just ordinary characters, but all of them, in my humble opinion, are the uber sex.
I've loved Batman in almost all his incarnations. I was even into Michael Keaton for a while there, you know? And while I've adored many of the villains in the movies – Tommy Lee Jones' Two Face and Jim Carrey's Riddler are among my favorites, along with Michelle Pfeiffer's Catwoman – I've never actually considered any of them hot. Until Heath Ledger's Joker. This messed up, psychopathic jokester is no doubt one of the sexiest movie characters ever. I told you I was strange.
I am a huge fan of Thomas Harris, and whether he's describing Hannibal Lecter or Anthony Hopkins is playing him, I'm a fan. I'm a creepy fan, but that's beside the point. The thing is, I consider myself, like … an amateur Hannibal expert. I can recite the merits of novels and movies all day. I did not like Hannibal Rising, either the book or the film; the book was rushed, and the movie didn't have a chance. That being said, Gaspard Ulliel as the young sociopath was just … phoowarg!
This is an old movie, and I don't even care. Leeloo is without question one of the sexiest movie characters I've ever seen. She can't really speak English, true, but she kicks butt and looks adorable doing it. Milla Jovovich is just amazing herself, though. I almost included Alice in Resident Evil instead, but Leeloo won my heart way more.
Within the X-Men franchise, there are actually tons of characters I consider sexy. I think the shortlived Archangel, played by the amazingly awesome Ben Foster, was superb. I'm hopelessly in love with Storm. Gambit is just … unf – and surprisingly, I am all about Magneto. Yes, Ian McKellan's Magneto. But Wolverine is just hands down incredible, and he deserves his props.
I really love this movie. Part of the reason I love this movie is because Olive, with all her quirks and bad decisions, awkwardness and freckles, is a sexy little character. Her wit and sarcasm make her that way. I think movies could use more girls like this. But that could just be because I recently got done watching the film about ten times, you know?
Call me nutso (it's deserved) but Johnny Depp's crazy Mad Hatter is one of the sexiest movie characters I have ever seen in all my born days. I know, he's got gap teeth and big crazy eyes and mercury poisoning, but his very lunacy – and the way that madness peeks through in the form of violence every so often – is smoldering. When he stops to recite “Jabberwocky,” darlings, I died.
Ms. Scarlett Johansson is hot in just about every roll she plays. As Natasha Romanoff, aka the Black Widow, however, she is absolutely sizzling. This is one of those women who, like Angelina Jolie, does really well in action roles. I can only hope she takes on more of them – and she can play a villain any old time she wants to.
Like say, I know these are not all of the sexiest movie characters out there; they aren't even the only ones I like. I'm sure our tastes differ on more than a few of them as well. But since I'm always on the lookout for movie crushes, why don't you let me know some of your favorites?
