Famous Men who Qualify as Sex on a Stick

As a part of our ongoing conversation about the merits of Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, my husband asked me last night to put together a list of famous men, dead or alive, I think are sexy.

Okay, he may be a little suprised at the length of the list that I'm going to share with you as insight about who I consider as the male lead type for romance novels.

There's no real order here:

James Dean (East of Eden)
Marlon Brando (A Streetcar Named Desire, The Godfather, and a Nebraska native.)
Colin Firth (He is Mr. Darcy.)
Kilian Hennessy
Richard Gere
Tommy Lee Jones
Vin Diesel
Jude Law
Johnny Depp (21 Jump Street)
Mickey Rourke (9 1/2 Weeks)
Aidan Quinn (Reckless)
Al Pacino
Gary Oldman
Jason Statham
Benicio del Toro (His Doberman is named Bebe.)
Michael Sheen (Maybe I do like werewolves just as much as vampires.)
Matt Dillon
Charles Bronson (Listen to one interview where Jill Ireland talked about her Charlie.)
Christian Bale ("I've never been afraid of a little blood.")

Who is on your list?

The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
