Kicking our list off at number 10 is possibly the most dedicated actor of 2012; and we mean the word in every sense. Just this year alone, his first comedic role in This Means War had us rooting for his adorably dedicated and earnest character, Tuck Hansen and he impressed us all by piling on 14kg of muscle to play the villainous Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. Talk about being dedicated to your job. Couple that with his bee-stung pout and his blue puppy-dog eyes and it’s no wonder he’s been voted onto our list. Definitely a man to watch in 2013.
Stirring up feelings is what this German-Irish hunk does best. Whether it’s feelings of lust (think Shame), bewilderment (think Prometheus), or just plain ol’ feelings of how-are-you-so-incredible-will-you-marry-me, he’s able to floor us with just a flash of his pearly whites or a flicker of those intense green peepers. We’re looking forward to his upcoming projects in 2013 — Twelve Years a Slave and The Counselor — where there’ll be plenty more of this dapper gentleman to go around.
While half of the female population is going gaga over glittery vampires, there’s the other half who prefer their men a little more primal; and seeing Lautner take his shirt off any number of times really does drive us wild. His mocha complexion and incredibly defined abs make him the ideal actor to play the werewolf Jacob in Twilight; and let’s face it, we’d all secretly love for our man to bring out the animal in us under a full moon, if you know what we mean.
Showing us that Agent 007 can bleed, this rugged Englishman has captivated audiences around the world — both male and female — with the most physically demanding stunts and action sequences in the Bond movie franchise. We love a man who can throw a few punches — it’s a security thing — and showing us that he is completely in his element playing brutish characters like Mikael Blomkvist in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and pre-gentleman Bond, it’s a given that he should secure a sweet spot at lucky number seven.
They came, they sang, they showed off their swag and won us over when they performed at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in September. The kings of K-Pop are reigning high with their win as the Artist of The Year at the recent Mnet Asian Music Awards 2012, and rightfully so. G-Dragon, Seungri, Taeyang, Daesung and TOP never fail to pull surprises out of their insanely talent-filled hat and possess just enough amount of personality, style, charisma and street mettle to put them on this list. Can’t wait to see what else they’ve in store for us come 2013!
He who rules with an iron hammer is ranked fifth and we guess it has a little something to do with his superhero character Thor, which he’s most commonly associated with. We know him as the better-looking Hemsworth brother and with sparkling blue eyes like these and to-lust-for sculpted abs, we can’t wait to see how his star quotient is going to blow up in 2013. A well-deserved placement.
Raise your hands if you’ve loved JGL since his days as Tommy in 3rd Rock from the Sun. (It’s hard to type now that I’ve got both hands in the air.) Watching him grow up has only made us grow to love him more — as if that’s even possible. He’s the perfect balance of humour and intensity, and won critics over this year when he practically stole the show in The Dark Knight Rises as rookie cop, John Blake. Easily one of the most talented actors in Tinseltown, this sweetheart is totally deserving of his spot on this list.
People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2012 takes the number three spot on our list. Who doesn’t love some Tatum? This 32-year-old actor has come a long way since being a dancer for Ricky Martin. His scene-stealing stripper moves in his latest outing Magic Mike cements his status as one of Tinseltown’s hottest acting dancers with a smokin’ bod to boot. The latest news about his wife Jenna Dewan expecting their first child will also allow him to join the ranks of Hollywood’s sexiest dads in 2013.
Coming in a very close second is none other than the lead singer of Maroon 5 - Adam Levine. We’re pretty sure you love the judge of The Voice for the same reasons as we do – his bad boy nature, his cocky smirk, his tattooed hot bod, his effusive stage presence and his talent for churning out chart-topping hits (think Maroon 5’s 2012 hit album Overexposed) one after another. A rock star who knows just how to rock it out on stage (in the tightest pants) and oozes confidence from his every pore, we can’t help but wish we were a Victoria Secret’s Angel, just so we can be seen hanging on his arm.
With more than 12 per cent of the votes, the honours for the top spot goes to none other than Mr SK-II. Him with the flawless skin, the statuesque 1.95m frame, the sexy stubble, the strong jawline and the charismatic smile – it’s really no surprise that you guys have voted him to the top of our list. Embracing our Asian pride, this 28-year-old has done us proud by becoming Louis Vuitton’s first Asian model last year, and is widely known as the world's first Asian male supermodel. We love his humble demeanour, and all we can say is, good job Gao. Cue slow clap.
