At Little Junkies, we want to set you up with the best of the best so you’ll never be lonely. This week we’re giving you a who’s who in Scotland. Apparently there was a poll conducted at the end of August for the hottest Scotsman and James McAvoy won! To celebrate legendary sexy Scot Sir Sean Connery’s 79th birthday, homecomingscotland2009.com ran a poll to find out which Scottish male make’s Scotland’s hearts pound. Of all the men available to vote for, I wouldn’t have been able to pick just one! In addition to being sexy, all 4 men are extraordinary actors with extreme dedication to their craft. So, stop (!) in the name of love, and check out, in no particular order, Scotlands 5 sexiest exports:
Gerard Butler: Why oh why do they not let this man use his accent in more movies? Sure his tough guy, scruffy, generalized “American” accent is hot, but his Scottish accent is so much hotter. Oh and did I mention he used to be a lawyer? Sexy, smart and talented – are all the men in Scotland this good? I’m thinking the flight to Scotland from Minnesota may be just a tad shorter than the flight to Australia I was planning…
Gerard may be known best for the movie 300 (and those abs), but I fell in love with Gerard back in 2004 through the movie Dear Frankie, way before he was established as a sex symbol. After he stole my heart in Dear Frankie (and made stone cry), I backed up the Gerard train and rented Timeline and Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. He was the best part of both, and I now own them. Gerard is able to go between bad ass action fighter and tender hearted dad/friend/lover/romantic comedy lead seamlessly – and in some movies he even combines the two making my head spin.
Gerard isn’t just for the ladies either. Gerry is able to pull in high box office numbers for his action flix through a predominantly male audience. I mean look at him, he has strong leading man practically tattooed around his biceps. He fights for what’s right, takes a licking and keeps on ticking, and always gets the girl. Who wouldn’t want to be that guy?
David Tennant: According to Little Junkie’s official best friend Antonio, David Tennant would be worth going gay for. Honestly I don’t know much more about him than that, but I’ll take Antonio’s (and Scotland’s) word for it.
Ewan McGregor: He’s played a junkie, a jedi and a penniless writer in love…you can see why I think he’s a perfect match for either me or my co-bloggers :). Oh wait, he wasn’t our kind of junkie? Details, details, my friend. He sings, he dances, he makes me swoon. This Scotsman has both the chops and the looks of a leading man. Hell, he turned down the role of James Bond in Casino Royale. You can check him out this fall in Amelia staring alongside Hilary Swank. Don’t want to wait? Be sure to rent Trainspotting if you haven’t already seen it.
James McAvoy: Just like Gerard and Ewan, Mr. McAvoy caught my attention with his acting first, not his looks. Not that he was bad to look at or anything, but after watching Penelope, Becoming Jane and Atonement I was more interested in who James McAvoy was and not what he looked like with his shirt off. And at Little Junkies, that’s saying something. Once we became better acquainted (The Last King of Scotland, The Chronicles of Narnia) I was happy to see him take more action oriented roles (Wanted) and show off his, umm, dedication to his craft.
Sean Connery: Bond. James Bond. If the accent, the suit, the cars, the gizmos and gadgets weren’t enough reason for you, just look at the smirk on that face and the twinkle of mischief in those eyes. Happy Belated Birthday Sir Connery from everyone at Little Junkies!
