I can completely understand why Jon Hamm is considered a sex symbol. He possesses classic Hollywood good looks which are pretty rare these days. Think Cary Grant. George Clooney was (or, perhaps, still is) in that category.
|by Anonymous||reply 7||12/08/2010|
I understand why these men are heartthrobs perfectly.
Ryan Reynolds is funny and good in romantic comedies and has a perfect body. He's also quite handsome.
Asshole or not, Tom Cruise has a body of death. He is also very handsome. The same is true of Bradley Cooper, who is exceptionally handsome and has a great body.
Brad Pitt was once very handsome and once had an amazing body.
Taylor Lautner also has an amazing body.
Jon Hamm has an incredibly handsome face. So does Robert Pattinson. They are both brooding types.
Justin Bieber is completely presexual and thus nonthreatening to preteen girls. So was Zac Efron once, but now he's hunky and attractive to older girls.
This all seems pretty straightforward to me. In all these cases except Bieber's, the men are either exceptionally handsome or they have great bodies, or both. What more do you expect?
|by Anonymous||reply 8||12/08/2010|
I don't get how anyone doesn't get how incredibly handsome Jon Hamm is. Like George Clooney ten years ago, he reminds me of a classic Hollywood star: Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, William Holden. Bradley Cooper, on the other hand, looks like a fox -- an actual fox. With his beady little eyes, sharp nose, and thin, thin lips, he was born to define the word "vulpine." How in the world can anyone think of him as sexy?

The appeal of Clooney, though has always eluded me, regardless of what character he's played. He's blandly handsome, I suppose, but there's an underlying smarminess and self-regard that cancels out the sexy.

Agree with OP's list except for Jon Hamm.

His bod isn't roided or gym rat which is a good choice for an actor since it doesn't limit him to a particular 'historical period'. He also gives off a very masculine vibe. I'm not even into men but I can see his appeal to straight women. Something very male and 'all man' about him.%0D %0D Brad Pitt has a rat face.

I kind of get who most of them end up considered heartthrobs if I think about it. There are only a few I get in the sense of seeing something attractive in them. Johnny Depp and Keanu Reeves I think have good looking faces and have had a few interesting characters, that is attractive. Robert Pattinson is considered a heartthrob because he played Edward Cullen but I've seen him in interviews and I think he's charming in an awkward, geeky, adorable way (not necessarily sexy).
