Sexiest Man. Simon Baker. When he smiles. When he broods.
My favorite shot is from Something New:
It's an under-rated film from Focus Features, btw, where he gets involved with a bright black woman, but she's embarrassed to go out with him because he's white, and working class, sorta (landscape architect--yum). The bottom pic below is also from the film.
Other angles. Eyes always intense:
He always looks so comfortable in his skin. His brain is working overtime, but he holds himself calmly, confident and physically serene.
He seems to be bright, too, and gets to play a mischievous, but psychically -wounded smartypants on the second-best new show, The Mentalist. (My post on why I like it and how I expected it to evolve.)
And he's Australian. I have a weakness for that accent.
More smiles, with dimples:
One more thing: I never ever focus on and barely even notice a man's hair, but Simon's is like the shimmering surface of a windswept lake: millions of tiny wavelets scattering in all directions, capturing tiny droplets of light. I could get lost in there.
Not so hot here, but what an adorable dad:
I want to raise kids with him.
What a shame that he's straight.
I added four other nominees (personal finalists) here: Hugh Jackman, Clive Owen,Ryan Kwanten and Rusty Joiner.
Hugh and Simon were neck and neck for my prize, butI explain why I went for Simon thre, despite Hugh blowing him away below the neck.
I'm also going to add a post on what constitutes "sexy" in my opinion. I"ll add the link once I do.
