The List of Six

Some of you might remember the Friends episode where Ross had the list of women he was allowed to have sex with even if he was married. He had the list laminated and carried it with him. The point of the list was that it contained names of women he probably never had a hope in hell of ever meeting, let alone being with, but if the universe should ever align just so, and it happened, well he had a free pass. I can't remember everyone on Ross's list but Isabella Rossalini rings a bell and I think Chandler or Joey had Jessica Rabbit.

Anyway, my sister and I were talking about it the other day and she could only come up with one name--Vince Vaughan. I figured...ppffttt...I can probably come up with my list of six (not sure how we settled on that number instead of five but there you have it) without even breaking a sweat. But when I stopped to whip off the names I couldn't get past Christian Bale. I stuttered, stammered and decided I needed some time to think on it.

Which I did. Because hey, if my universe ever aligns just so, I want to make sure I'm covered.

So here's my list*:

1) Christian Bale
2) Simon Baker
3) Paul Walker
4) Cole Hauser
5) Rufus Sewell
6) Gerard Butler

* this list is subject to change, however all changes must be documented and the list re-laminated before any changes are official and can be put into effect. Any deviation from this list may result in severe consequences (of which may be well worth it).

And my sincerest apologies to Sean Bean, Jim Cavaziel and several others who made the short list but not the top six for whatever reason.


So who's on your list?

Gerard Butler, of course
Justin Chambers (Alex on Grey's Anatomy)
Hugh Jackman
George Clooney
Simon Baker (sooo hot in Something New!)
and....
hmmm....
Keanu? No. (Maybe from Speed and The Replacements though)
Chris Noth? Too old.
Colin Firth? Ditto.
I may have to get back to you....

MaryF said...

Viggo! Viggo Mortensen. That will be #6

MaryF said...

Okay, maybe I'll trade Simon for Brad Pitt...

I'm so decisive!

Kelly said...

Yes...Viggo made my short list.

julia said...

1 Gerard Butler
2 Hugh Jackman
3 Viggo Mortensen
4 Mikhail Baryshnikov
5 Ewan McGregor
6 Kevin Sorbo

Sigh...

Anne M said...

George Clooney - because he's smart enough to know what a woman wants
Russell Crowe - I see ravishment as part of this fantasy
Hugh Laurie - because he so bad as House and so funny as himself.
Colin Firth - Darcy fantasy
Simon Baker - no explanation necessary

Kelly said...

Ooohhhh Hugh Laurie...never even THOUGHT of that. Och the blue eyes...the sarcasm...Maybe I should have made it a list of ten.

Erin said...

I suppose this list has to be living people, huh? (not that I'm into necrophilia, but there is at least one amazingly hot guy who, sadly, is dead - and he would definitely be on my list if he was alive).

Of the living...
1) Johnny Depp...but not as Willy Wonka.
2) Hugh Jackman...ditch the Wolvie sideburns, though

Yep, I've stalled. There are a few that would be on my "Hmm, maybe" list, but not necessarily a definite.

Kelly said...

I'm pretty sure the dead guy would never show up, regardless of how the universe aligned.

Erin said...

Yeah, I know...

But, dang, Michael Hutchense (from INXS) was HOT!

Rene said...

1. Johnny Depp
2. Hugh Jackman
3. Rufus Sewell
4. Derek Jeter
5. James Purefoy
6. Clive Owen

Erin said...

Actually, Julian's not such a bad choice...

(in anticipation of the post that is being made right now by someone else. *G*)

Christine said...

o.k.
Julian McMahon (major hottie)
Josh Lucas (cutie)
Mick Jager --hahahah kidding did i get a rise?!!

I'm sure more will come to mind but I'm not of mind at the moment!!! I'll sit and think more about it...

Tess said...

1. James Purefoy
2. Viggo
3. Clive Owen
4. Benjamin Bratt
5. Chris Noth (not too old for me!)
6. Did I mention James Purefoy? *g*

Kelly said...

I've got to go google James Purefoy...

Kelly said...

Oh HELLO James Purefoy. I loved him in A Knight's Tale. Damn, I knew I should have made that list ten long.

Tess said...

Yep, or James PureJoy as a friend of mine calls him. I've been known to freeze the KT DVD on the scene at the end where he's wearing the leather coat watching the finale of the jousting. Or when he steps forward during the scene in the stocks. *deep sigh*

Melissa Marsh said...

OOOOOH, FUN!!!

1) Christian Bale
2) Hugh Jackman
3) Viggo Mortensen
4) Matthew Mc.
5) Clive Owen
6) Russell Crowe (oh, how I used to DROOL over this man...)

Melissa Marsh said...

There was a great British movie with James Purefoy where he was in a scene that just made me fall in love with him...he's just gotten out of the shower, dripping wet, with nothing but a towel wrapped around him, and he's standing over the heroine as she sits working at her desk...

OOOHHHH. Must go find that picture...

Melissa Marsh said...

Ok, just found the movie. It's called 'Jilting Joe.' (I love IMDB!)

MaryF said...

James and Clive!!!!! Oh, yes! But....no, I'll stick with who I have.

Chris Noth probably isn't THAT much older than me, but he doesn't look as good as when he started on Law and Order and Sex and the City.
