Pop Rocks: Emma Watson/Benedict Cumberbatch Voted Sexiest People. Them?
Let's jump to the female category where Emma Watson took home the prize of being the numero uno in all things sexy. Most of us know Watson from watching her transition from an awkward, pre-teen Hermione Granger of the Harry Potter films to the stunning woman she is now. Yes, she is absolutely gorgeous and even in her youth you knew she was going to be, but again... sexy? Classy. Beautiful. Flawless. Awesome style that you wish you had. But sexiest?
Are diapers on girls sexy now?
The denotative meaning of sexy is "sexually suggestive or stimulating," according to Merriam Webster's Dictionary. Are Watson and Cumberbatch suggestive enough to make you launch a thousand ships? That's sexy.
The list has some other odd choices and placements. Scar-Jo clocks in at No. 2; OK, that seems fair. But Anne Hathaway comes in at No. 5 ahead of Mila Kunis, Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox. I want to go see The Lion King on Broadway with Anne Hathaway and together, arm and arm, we will sing "Hankuna Matata" as we skip down Eighth Avenue over to Sardis where we people watch and eat pimento cheese sandwiches. I don't want her to strip for me; that's what Megan Fox and Mila Kunis are for.
Glamour Nope, even in your undies, not sexy.
No. 30 on the lady's list is cutesy Ellen Page. Sexy? Sexier than curvaceously, hips that will knock you down in a crowded street, Christina Hendricks? No. No. Ellen Page is the new best friend you get Berry Pop with while you discuss where you were the day you heard Kurt Cobain died.
The gentlemen's list is no less perplexing. Robert Pattison takes the No. 7 prize of sexiness, beating out Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba (come on!), George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and the list goes on and on. Ladies, I know some of us really dig him and his pasty skin and anomic vampire ways, but this is a guy you want to hold hands with and exchange love letters and purity rings; he is not ripping anyone's clothing off.
