the Alex awards

It’s time for some fun. Time for Alex’s very own awards show. My categories, my awards. First category:

Sexiest Celebrities, Female.

By “sexiest,” I mean beautiful (maybe only on the outside) enough to be worthy of worship. One may easily become obsessed with these…though I’m too old and too wise for that kind of nonsense anymore. They have a vulnerable, raw quality that draws me to them. And they smell good. I don’t know how else to explain that. Looks only, now. No other qualities in this contest.

#10 - Rhona Mitra. It helps to have a sexy accent.

#9 - Julianne Moore. I have a thing for redheads. Real ones. And freckles.

#8 - Bryce Dallas Howard. Better with less eye makeup.

#7 - Jennifer Connolly.

#6 - Amy Adams. I wasn't kidding about the redheads.

#5 - Rachel McAdams. But not blonde, please.

#4 - Claire Forlani. Amazing eyes.

#3 - Kate Beckinsale. Especially as a vampire.

#2 - Nigella Lawson, the domestic goddess. Another Brit. If you've never just watched this woman in her kitchen, it's a pleasure.

It’s very difficult to choose a number one, because I really don’t have a favorite. They are all among my favorites. But I don’t think you can find a bad picture of this woman.

#1 - Monica Bellucci. Italian this time.

And some close runners-up:

Neve Campbell
Charlize Theron
Sarah Michelle Gellar (naughty!)
Elisabeth Shue
Tea Leoni
Madeleine Stowe
Julia Ormond

So what do you think of my first list? Agree, disagree? Who are your favorites?


  1. i'm surprised she didn't make your list!

  2. I would have to add Scarlett Johannsen to your list.


  3. I am suprised Madeline Stowe didn't make your list...not even as a runner up...I am shocked!

  4. I have always thought that Jennifer Connelly was the most exquisite and gorgeous woman out there.

  5. You like strong jaw lines.


Your feedback, please...
