In these trying times, we all need a bit of lightheartedness to lift our spirits. If it so happens that it goes hand-in-hand with a little eye-candy, I say: the more the merrier!
Estrogen Island? Sort of, but with a relevant twist
To that end, I present you with New Zealands 40 Most Handsome Men Alive
Not surprisingly, some of our favorite LOTR and Hobbit actors made the list, including:
- Dean O'Gorman (Fili in The Hobbit movies)
- Karl Urban (Eomer in LOTR movies)
- Manu Bennet (Azog in The Hobbit movies)
Other noteworthy entertainment names include:
- Sam Neill (Jurrasic Park, LOTS of other films)
- Cliff Curtis (Once Were Warriors, Fear the Walking Dead, upcoming Avatar movies)
- Taika Waititi (Producer, Writer, Director of many films including What we do in the Shadows, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Thor: Ragnorok)
All of the winners' profiles have pics, and many have tweets and videos with uplifting, positive messages for these times. One of my favorites is Sonny Bill Williams video (handsome rating #28, well-known NZ Rugby player) giving a positive message while his kids climb all over him. I was also delighted to see that Kieren Read, NZ All Blacks Rugby captain (and my fav All Black) is on the list at number 25.
As it turns out, one of the Tolkien movie-related actors snatched the number one slot!! I won't spoil it for you, go to the link, enjoy the pictures and the messages, and see for yourself!
