Hunk of the Day: Brad Pitt

brad pitt 101

Certain classic hunks defy the aging process, while others embrace it and revel in their maturity. Brad Pitt seems to be taking the latter route, which is in keeping with the unconventional path his career has taken. Never one to rest on his beautiful laurels, he chose many roles seemingly to break his chiseled leading-man status, getting gritty and dirty while downplaying his pretty-boy hotness.

To be honest, I was never completely taken with his physical charms. Don’t get me wrong, he’s as near perfect a Hunk as you can get, but perhaps that was the problem. Perfection has a way of detracting from raw and brutal sensuality, and I’ve often thought that Mr. Pitt recognized this and did whatever he could to retain his rough edges. There’s a great deal to admire in that.

Hunk of the Day: Dushyant Yadav

Indian actor and model Dushyant Yadav brings some global flare to the Hunk of the Day feature, hailing from half-way around the world: New Delhi, India. I’d love to trade out residences for a week or two – he could see Boston and I could see India. The ball is in your court, Mr. Yadav. Make it happen.

Christian Arno 10001

As the supporting players and ice-dumpers in Donatella Versace’s ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Christian Arno Williams and Max Wefers steal the show with nary a word exchanged between them. With gold ice like that around their necks and Versace underwear bands around their torsos, who needs words? In a rare Double Hunk of the Day, we offer two to double your pleasure. First up is Mr. Williams…

We’ll sandwich the video between the boys:

And now onto Mr. Wefers…

Hunk of the Day: Mika

mika 001

It’s nice when an opening post leads into a closing post, and so we have another Mika moment, as the openly-gay singer-singwriter is also being named as the Hunk of the Day. He may not own up to being a model (and admits as much quite explicitly on ‘Popular Song‘) but he certainly has a certain appeal, and more than a few people are going to enjoy this post. There’s always something sexy about a singer. (See also Adam Levine, Lenny KravitzJustin Timberlake, Marques Houston, Keith Urban, Enrique IglesiasLuke Bryan, Trey Songz, and Jason Derulo.)

Hunk of the Day: Liam Payne

Liam Payne

There was a time when I would have known who this kid was, along with all his other bandmates and their various nicknames. As it stands, I had to look it all up. This is Liam Payne, the Hunk of the Day, who is part of One Direction. They’ve been featured here before for a certain Story, but I don’t believe any one of them was singled out. My days of boy-band-obsessing passed with ‘NSync and the Backstreet Boys. It’s time to let some other teenage girl pick up the slack.

Hunk of the Day: Derek Richardson

When one has the beauty of a male model, words are often superfluous. Today, that’s a very good thing, as I just returned from a birthday weekend in New York and I’m spent. Taking up the mantle of attractiveness to see you through to tomorrow, here is Hunk of the Day Derek Richardson.

Hunk of the Day: Duncan Mais

Sweeter than Duncan Hines, this is Hunk of the Day Duncan Mais. A British actor and model, Mr. Mais has appeared in ‘Captain America: The First Avenger,’ ‘X-Men: First Class,’ and ‘Snow White and the Huntsman.’ Give the guy his own franchise, he’s only one step away from Superhero glory.

Hunk of the Day: Noam Ash

Some Hunks of the Day are hot and sexy, while others are cute and adorable. Occasionally, a man comes along who manages to be a bit of all of the above, along with displaying an astounding mix of creativity and talent. Such is the package of Noam Ash, co-creator, co-writer and star of the ‘My Gay Roommate‘ web series. (Austin Bening is his partner-in-creative-crime.)

I love anything that fosters and finds fun in straight/gay friendships, and Mr. Ash manages to do so while being witty and entertaining. I defy anyone to watch just one ‘My Gay Roommate’ episode and not click on to the next – they’re that addicting. Mr. Ash can also be sexy as hell, as illustrated by the ‘Art of Manscaping’ video below. Taint it grand?

Hunk of the Day: Idris Elba

idris elba 01

When a guy’s bulge makes news headlines, it’s time to question our priorities, and celebrate. This is about the only news story that gets a rise out of me. The latest protuberance to cause such a production was that of Idris Elba, and even if it turned out to be a microphone wire, the excitement was such as to rival most of the Jon Hamm sausage sightings. Mr. Elba has thus been chosen as the Hunk of the Day. Sometimes a little microphone wire can be heard around the world.

Sorry boys and girls, he already explained that it really was a microphone wire.

Hunk of the Day: Matthew Paetz

It’s been ages since I’ve seen an episode of ‘Glee’ but if Lea Michele can get her rumored boyfriend Matthew Paetz to come on the show, I may have to revisit the musical mayhem. Mr. Paetz is the current Hunk of the Day, and these photos will attest to why. I know nothing else about him, so if he turns out to be a hateful closet-case with a porn-star past, don’t blame me. Though something tells me that Ms. Michele is too cool to let a little thing like porn bother her in the slightest.

Hunk of the Day: Ezra Miller

ezra miller 100

Sometimes an actor does such a good job portraying a character that the two almost become one. Such talent and such a wondrous happening can, if done correctly, yield its own sexiness. That was the case when Ezra Miller took on the role of gay bon-vivant Patrick in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower‘ – one of my favorite films of the last few years. Mr. Miller possesses an unconventional beauty, tinged with the androgynous, and steeped in dark gorgeousness. Above all else, he exudes a confidence and a comfort in his own skin that makes him even more sexy.

Hunk of the Day: Damien Rodgers

damien 1

This is Damien Rodgers, the Hunk of the Day. More than that, however, this is call to support our country. Mr. Rodgers is currently vying for the title of Mr. Gay World, representing the United States of America. I’m not always the most visibly patriotic of people, but in this instance I think we all need to stand up and support the red, white, and blue. A more in-depth post on Mr. Rodgers is forthcoming, but for now, visit the Mr. Gay World site and vote for the U.S.A.

Hunk of the Day: Kerry Degman

kerry degman 100

While he’s apparently a country singer (whose favorite musical genres are “Country” and “Western”) I couldn’t make it past his modeling career to listen to any of the twang. This is Kerry Degman, the Hunk of the Day who started off as a model before moving into the country crooner field. Sigh… I suppose if anyone’s going to get me to listen to country music, it would have to be someone as pretty as Mr. Degman. Or Dolly Parton. I don’t see any other way.

Hunk of the Day: Willie Gomez

Wilie Gomez

Though Kevin Federline proved that Britney Spears often lacks the ability to select hot husbands, Willie Gomez may go some ways in repairing that image, at least as far as her penchant for selecting hot dancers goes. Speaking of images, Mr. Gomez offers a fine one. Before hoofing it for Ms. Spears, he was a model with an impressive body of work. Hopefully he steers clear of following in Mr. Federline’s footsteps. A dancer’s body is a terrible thing to waste.

Hunk of the Day: Parker Gregory

parker gregory 1001

In his wonderful novel ‘Confessions of an Ugly Step-Sister’, Gregory Maguire posits the simple but powerful question, “What purpose does beauty serve?” I’ve wrestled with such a notion over the years, trying (often in vain) to purport the reasons we need beauty, but a decent description and explanation has always eluded me. It’s one of those tantalizing answers that is always out of grasp, teasingly there on the tip of your tongue, but impalpable at the last.

Hunk of the Day Parker Gregory offers an illustration of beauty, at least according to my eyes. For me, it’s not so much physical perfection (though I won’t discount that either) it’s more of an appreciation of an expression – something in the eyes, in the gaze, that hints at the melancholy of a sensitive soul. Such a reliance on the superficial is a gamble at best (and a foolish one at that) as appearances can often be deceiving, but we want to believe the best of something so, well, beautiful.

As for Mr. Gregory, he may not be beautiful in everyone’s eyes (though for the life of me I don’t see how you couldn’t find beauty here) but that’s the wonder of it all. As a wise woman once remarked: “Beauty’s where you find it.
