2009 Hollywood Movie Heartthrobs!
Before anything else, I would like to clarify the list that I’m about to present is not mine, but that of ‘Yahoo!’. However, I just want to share it with you and share some of my thoughts.
The list that I’m talking about is Yahoo’s list of the decades Top Movie Heartthrobs, never mind that the decade is not yet finish. I think you’ll find some of the list surprising, while I agree to a lot of them, I find that other’s are kinda off, at least for me.
HEARTTHROB: Russell Crowe – Gladiator
Runner – Up: Hugh Jackman as Wolverine – X-Men
Hugh Jackman instantly became a superstar in playing the role of Wolverine in the famous X-Men series. However, it was fellow Aussie Russell Crowe who won the Oscars for that year not to mention the fact that he is also Yahoo’s choice as Heartthrob of 2000.
This is one of the entries that I don’t agree with. I think it should be Hugh Jackman who should have gotten the Heartthrob status. Besides Hugh Jackman has managed to remain hot and I can’t say the same for Russell Crowe.
HEARTTHROB: Viggo Mortensen – The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
Runner – Up: George Clooney – Ocean’s Eleven
I totally agree with this entry. I don’t for a while think that George Clooney is sexy. The funny thing here is that Viggo Mortensen is actually a last minute replacement. The original choice was Stuart Townsend, however, they find his face to be too ‘angelic’ for the role of Aragon. I think it’s a good choice. Can we think of anybody else playing the role of Aragon?
HEARTTHROB: Leonardo DiCaprio – Catch Me If You Can
Runner – Up: Matt Damon – The Bourne Identity
I think the hotness that Leonardo DiCaprio exudes in ‘The Titanic’ was never replicated. Nevertheless, I think he is the better choice.
HEARTTHROB: Johnny Depp – Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Runner – Up: Orlando Bloom – The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Hmmm…. This is a hard choice. But Johnny Depp is not sexy or good looking in Pirates of the Caribbean, but his acting is superb! So I guess that counts for the fact that he won the as the movie heartthrob of the year.
However, I think they should both be heartthrob for that year. Who said it should only be one. They are both very hot!
HEARTTHROB: Ryan Gosling – The Notebook
Runner – Up: Jake Gyllenhaal – The Day After Tomorrow
Hard to say whether this is a fair choice because I wasn’t able to see ‘The Notebook’, but if I were simply to base it on looks I’ll go Jake Gyllenhaal.
HEARTTHROB: Brad Pitt – Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Runner – Up: Christian Bale – Batman Begins
Agree! But I have to say though that they are both really hot and really good.
HEARTTHROB: Daniel Craig – Casino Royale
Runner – Up: Sacha Baron Cohen – Borat
They both have charming accent. They both are famous for appearing in their swimsuits. But how can you choose Borat for Casino Royale’s James Bond?
HEARTTHROB: Gerard Butler – 300
Runner – Up: Will Smith – I Am Legend
Hmm…I agree that for this it really should be Gerard Butler, but Will Smith is really my all time crush.
HEARTTHROB: Robert Pattinson – Twilight
Runner – Up: Robert Downey Jr. – Iron Man
Need I say more?
For 2009 we still don’t know who is it going to be. But so far the finalists are:
Zac Efron – 17 Again
He charmed not only the young but also the not so young in High School Musical with his nice face, nice voice, nice moves, and also with his sweaty body, nice armpit if I may add, but the real acid test for Zac Efron is with ’17 Again’.
Chris Pine – Star Trek
Other than having a nice face we still don’t know much whether he is it.
Daniel Radcliffe – Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
We saw him grow up. But that shouldn’t prevent us from realizing that he is HOT!
Channing Tatum – G.I. Joe
So who do you think should be the 2009 Movie Heartthrob?
Also, let me include here the Philippines three telenovela heartthrob. Who do you think it should be?
Gerald Anderson – Tayong Dalawa
I really think his acting is better than that of Kim Chiu, but not yet there…
Jake Cuenca-Tayong Dalawa
So is it Richard Gutierrez? Jake Cuenca? Or Gerald Anderson?
Just in case you’re wondering I don’t think Dingdong Dantes is still a heartthrob, not anymore, specially after the Karylle, Dingdong, and Marianne Rivera issue.
