Jennifer Lawrence named ‘Most Desirable of 2013′ by Ask Men: good pick?

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence appears in the December issue of Vogue Italia, and let’s just say that this is a gorgeous spread and worlds above that dreadful, 1970s sweater-heavy Vogue UK shoot from a few months ago. Jennifer looks sultry and healthy and full of sex appeal. Speaking of the latter, our Hunger Games heroine has been named “Most Desirable Woman of 2013″ by Ask Men. In the process, 2012′s winner (Sofia Vergara) has been knocked down to #12 on the list. Here’s a little hope for humanity — while Michelle Obama popped in at #33 on the list, Kim Kardashian has fallen to #98.

So is Jennifer truly worth of the “Most Desirable” title? Well, this is what she looks like in a bikini, and she’s a very strong and resourceful type of movie star who can kick all kinds of ass in the movies. Jennifer also refuses to be stick thin to conform to Hollywood standards, which is an attitude shared by many other ladies on the top 100 list. Here are Ask Men’s top picks:

Jennifer Lawrence

1. Jennifer Lawrence

2. Mila Kunis

3. Kate Upton

4. Rihanna

5. Emma Stone

6. Miranda Kerr

7. Kristen Stewart

8. Jessica Gomes

9. Jessica Pare

10. Michelle Jenneke

[From Ask Men]

It’s nice to see an Olympian (Michelle Jenneke) get some love from one of these lad-type mags! Also, I’m not surprised at all to see Mila, Kate, Rihanna, and Amanda on this list, and the lovely Emma Stone probably rules the guy-dork contingent at this point. Jessica Pare is an odd choice (did the new Mrs. Draper really make that big of an impression during the last season of “Mad Men”?), but what I do find absolutely hilarious is the addition of Kristen Stewart to the top 10 portion of list. Have men always considered her “desirable” or is it just the illicit Mini Cooper behavior that did the trick, so to speak?

In this Vogue Italia spread, Jennifer appears sexy in a very subtle way. There’s a little bit of cleavage involved in just one shot, but her boobs aren’t out everywhere. She looks fashionable and comfortable at the same time, and it’s rare to see her reflecting both qualities at the same time. Also, no winged bangs! This editorial shoot is a win.

    Most desirable for what??? There is not one sexy thing about this girl… she looks like a regular white girl to me …. The things people find attractive is insane to me

    • Katyusha says:

      A regular white girl? As opposed to what?

    • anemoneblue says:

      so tell me, what’s wrong with being a regular white girl? I mean, to be attractive do you have to belong to a particular ethnic group? beautiful women are found in every race, nationality or ethnic group, and yes, this girl is stunning, fresh and real.

      • V4Real says:

        I’m hoping what Lady X meant was that JLaw look likes an average girl you would see everyday and that there is nothing special about her. Now I believe that my girl crush is desireable. She is not super hot but I find her very appealing. Now enough with the talk of Hollyweird standards. JLaw may have curves but the girl is still kind of on the slender side. She’s no more than a size 6.

      • cindylou says:

        Yes, exactly. Every race. I was happy when the blue-eyed blondes moved over to give the brown-eyed brunettes some face time. Now, we have to take it to another level where people like Lady X complain and now the regular white girls are being replaced in pics and adverts by the new thing, ‘exotic’. Can’t we all just share and get along?

      • cam says:

        I believe Lady X is saying that everyone on that list is just average looking for the exception of Rihanna. It seems that women of color have to be above average.. gorgeous to make any white male anything list. Here’s the select few: Beyonce, Rihanna, Halle Berry,Vanessa Williams (A decade or so ago). All these women are above average looking Black women.

    • Chatcat says:

      Wow, racist much? I simply looked it as a “woman” was selected.

      Oh and come on V, if she meant average she would have said regular or average girl and left out the “white”…there is no way to misinterpret what her words said so why are you trying to?

    • Sophia says:

      I think it’s a great choice..Jennifer is pretty, smart,modest,and a good actress plus she seems nice and she’s not won’t find pictures of her showing us her bits and t*ts unlike rihanna, kate upton and the rest…oh and kristen stewart HELL NO..only douches would think she’s desirable

    • mimifarrow says:

      I call myself a plain old white girl all the time. Does that make me racist? :(

      • Mich says:

        Apparently, yes. I hope you are good and ashamed of yourself! ;-)

      • victoria1 says:

        Nope. I say the same thing… whatever.

        I took it as she looks average, nothing special but people made a BFD.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        Well, let’s see what happens if I pop in on say a Halle, Beyonce or Rhianna post and call them an average black girl.

        Let’s see how many people would call that comment racist.

      • Mich says:

        Oh come on, Original T. I adore what you have to say about most things (particularly the Cracken) but that is a false equivalent.

        A ‘regular white girl’ means nothing more than ‘boring’, ‘normal’ and ‘average’. The same cannot be said for applying the statement to other races in America.

        Now, back to happier thoughts, the Cracken may (or may not) be going back to jail today (if they can find her).

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        Sorry, I really just detest any racism and that comment was not said in a nice way at all.

        Maybe it is working on so many humans over the years. When you watch people die and care for the sick you really realize we are all just the same. I’m really not cool with anyone calling out race.

        If the comment was she is just a plain, average girl it would have been fine. Why do we feel the need to denigrate people about their skin color? I find it curious. That is just not the thought that pops into my head.

        I guess I am fairly alone in thinking any racial snark is not very cool, but that is okay.

        The Cracken is failing to stimulate me lately. Sigh, the end is nigh when I get bored of the Cracken antics. All I could manage today was a single Screeee! :)
        Maybe I am just being bitchy, Mich-I’m sick of coughing 24/7. I need a Nyquil-tini…

      • Trillion says:

        no, self referencing is a different thing altogether. The medium is the message and all that…

      • Chatcat says:

        Trillion…you hit is spot on, it is as simple as you stated. The use of the adjective “white” in Lady X’s post is defining that the color of her skin is of importance in her lack of support of the choice. Using an adjective defines the whole point!

        “regular FAT girl”
        “regular AMERICAN girl”
        “regular BLONDE girl”
        “regular SKINNY girl”
        “regular BLUE EYED girl”

        and on and on. O Tiff you are always the champion and supporter of getting the race out of any and all comments here at CB. Keep up the good work!

    • lady X says:

      LOL I love how you all just went LEFT CRAZY on that White girl comment… I meant she is an average white girl …. not a racial thing …. I looked at the list and to me Rhianna should be at the top … not 4 … Kate Upton looks like the girl next door and so does JLaw….. I said the same thing about Jennifer Aniston when she was awarded Most Beautiful person in the world … She looks like an average everyday white girl … I have been visiting this site a lot and not comment too much … ( cause I do have a life) and i have read some of the under handed comments about the women of color featured on here ,.. so i will not apologize for what I said originally … My point is I am soo sick of the blonde hair blued eyed or even brunette white white white skin being most desirable or most beautiful .. I mean who on earth are you polling for these answers … Most men i know have no idea who she is other than hunger games and would never find her most desirable …. Spare me the ” oh why can’t white be most desirable” LOL it is all the time that is the problem … I think they need to poll more of a diverse group of men

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        You are assuming we are all white white.
        Wrong. Why do you have to make a note of skin color at all?


        Racism is as racism does. You are the one who brought it up and if you ever see me post something racially divisive, go ahead and call me out on it.

      • Liv says:

        So you have a life and we don’t? Funny.

        I don’t know why some people call her average or boring. I find her really beautiful.

        Anyway, everbody who thinks beauty is perceived objectively is stupid. Millions of people have a different view of beauty.

      • marie says:

        In reading your comment I can honestly say I wasn’t offended-I took it as part of your description, and she is a white girl, just as she’s a brunette. In a perfect world skin color wouldn’t be used as an adjective, but no one’s perfect and not everything is meant negatively.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        @Marie, again if that is our definition of the comment then it is perfectly acceptable for someone to say, for instance-Alicia Keys is such an average black girl. Nothing special there. That is OK, because I am stating the obvious?

        Why shouldn’t it just be said that she is an average girl, why throw what darned color their skin is in there. I find it offensive no matter what color the person is.

        Oh, average Chinese girl, average Latina. Dang, that is racist crapola to me. Even if I told one of the Russians that a girl looked like some average Russian chick they would be offended.

      • irishserra says:

        It’s pretty presumptuous isn’t it, to assume that the men polled were a non-diverse group. Why wouldn’t a group of diverse men find Jennifer Lawrence attractive? Perhaps they were bored with the other choices as they’ve been plastered all over the media and they might have found their No. 1 choice to be exotic, in that she’s a deviation from the usual.

        You smack of bitterness and it’s very unbecoming.

      • marie says:

        I get what you’re saying OTiff, and I’m not trying to make anyone mad, I just wasn’t offended. I just took it to mean to her, she looks like a normal white girl..

    • skuddles says:

      A regular white girl? You sound like a racist. Not a special racist, just a regular racist.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        I laughed at your comment, skuddles!

        ‘Average white girl’ doesn’t bother me, Lady X; I took it to mean that she’s kind of ‘vanilla’ or bland rather than riveting and hot, hot, hot.

        FYI – I’m a bland white woman myself that doesn’t use race as a descriptor – just a personal choice.

      • Smaug says:

        There is racism. And then there’s prejudice. Racism is systematic and endemic and prejudice is personal. White people are NOT victims of racism.

        In any case, she IS an average white girl. I still like her.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        LOL, Skuddles.

        @marie-I’m not offended at all by the words “average white girl” but I’m not wild about the context in which Lady X used the words. It was meant to denigrate, which is kind of sh*tty.

        As always, it’s never about a word or phrase in and of itself being offensive, which is why I think it’s absurd to ban words. It’s always about context for me..

  2. cmc says:

    The direction of the shoot surprises me as well! But, good. Jennifer is a gorgeous woman and she shouldn’t be forced to wear lingerie and open her mouth to prove it.

    • Liv says:

      I like that she’s pretty buttoned-up! Refreshing.

      But I agree, this open-mouth-thing is so ridiculous! But I suppose I’m not the target audience of the magazine anyway! ;-)

    • Sophia says:

      good point..she combines sexiness and elegance in a great way without looking you won’t find any nude pictures of her on the internet which i think is very refreshing.

    • melanie says:

      It was her choice. Stop defending her. She wants these sexy spreads to become more popular because sex sells. SHE said that.

      • cmc says:

        WHOA. Calm down there, turbo. I just meant that usually, when a men’s publication names ANYONE most appealing/desireable/beautiful/sexy anything, we’re usually ‘treated’ to pictures of the winning starlet with her tits pushed up to her chin in lingerie with her finger in her mouth and never, ever fully dressed. And with her mouth open. I am not specifically commenting on JLaw (although she looks beautiful in these shots), I am commenting on how refreshing it is that Ask Men named her most desireable then didn’t force her to spread her legs or lick an ice pop or something.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        @cmc: those pics aren´t from Ask Men, they are from Vogue Italia. If she got named/ her publicist bought her sexiest woman by Esquire we for sure would have gotten a trashy sexy photo shoot by Terry the Creeperson with lots of t&a.

  3. Christina says:

    Meh. Jenniffer seems fairly ordinary looking to me. Pretty, but pretty in a way which wouldn’t cause me to give her a second glance if she passed me by on the street. Even when enjoying the attention of Hollywood’s top make-up artists, hair stylists, dress designers and photoshoppers, she really doesn’t look anything special – at least not to me.

    Anyway, I think these ‘hot 100′ polls tend to be fairly useless in judging who men, or women, really fancy. All they really tell us is who has the hardest working PR team at any given moment.

    • Chatcat says:

      It was a poll that showed pictures of the ladies and fill in the bubble next to “your choice” as a subsriber. She got the most bubbles filled in, so obviously to many people, mostly men, she was not meh.

      BTW, my son took the poll so your wrong so you may want to believe they are useless because you don’t like the choices or the winners, but others did and this is THEIR choices.

      • Christina says:

        ”BTW, my son took the poll so your wrong”

        A bit like your spelling?

        ”so you may want to believe they are useless because you don’t like the choices or the winners, but others did and this is THEIR choice”

        I stand by my assertion that these polls are more indicative of who’s got a high profile right now than they are of anything else. Who decided what names got to be on the list? Why couldn’t men (or most likely given this mag’s readership, teenage boys) get to decide for themselves? And it’s a bit naive to believe that just because your son took the poll, the results necessarily reflect the ‘polling’.

      • Chatcat says:

        Christina the only thing I may be naive about is that anybody could have an intelligent conversation with you. You belittle everyone…the celebs and posters here alike. Are you really that unhappy in life that all you can do is be mean spirited at all times while posting on a gossip website? UGH!

      • Christina says:

        So saying that a massively hyped film star is pretty but imho unspectacular looking is now ‘belittling’ them? I thought this was Celebitchy, not Celebfawny.

        And I’m not interested in getting into a personal spat with you over an actress’ looks, so we’ll leave it at that.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Christina-It’s not necessarily solely driven by PR. I mean, when Transformers came out, everyone was talking about Megan Fox because the movie she starred in was so high-profile, it was the first time anyone had seen Fox and basically every guy I know thought she was smokin’. Sort of like when the Mask first came out and every guy I know was obsessed with Cameron Diaz.

        Exposure & timing plays a part in this but the truth is that these are women that just have mass appeal.
        Even if men could make their own singular choice for hottest female, likely they would mostly still chose the hot female of the moment. Call it the power of pop culture.

        I thought you made the comment in another post that what you find attractive is a combo of looks, talent etc.
        Lawrence is NOT one of the VS models that you so despise, she IS talented and I know that most of my guys friends have been crushing on her since Winter’s Bone.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        Exactly OKitt, Christina, you rag away on the VS models, “too skinny, no one wants them” and JLaw is too plain and wouldn’t fetch a second glance.

        You must live in alienland where everyone including yourself is just perfect.

        Reading your posts and your grammar corrections is tedious-you would really benefit from some kindness therapy. Merry Christmas, Happy Festivus and all.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        We’ve all made grammatical errors. Unless someone’s post is rife with errors, it doesn’t make their point less valid. Plus @chatcat is super well informed when it comes to things that matter (politics, social issues etc.) So what if she misused a homonym?

        Anyway, I think J Lawrence is super sexy. Sometimes sex appeal has more to do with confidence and attitude than it does with looks and she has the former in spades.

      • Isa says:

        They have a higher profile? I have no idea what the last three look like.
        As for the grammatical errors they happen sometime. We are commenting on celebitchy not writing an essay. “I can’t think of an intelligent reply! Oh look, you misspelled a word!”

      • lafairy says:

        @mortician: I beg to differ from you on one point: Maybe Chatcat can be informed on certain topics but as someone who social studies are my job I can gently say that social issues are from I have seen not one of them.No offense.

        Otherwise I also tend to believe that these polls are PR twisted to comply with the projects agenda of these celebrities.nothing wrong to believe that it the very fabricated world of medias and entertainement a poll might be also fabricated or a bit pushed.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        >>Maybe Chatcat can be informed on certain topics but as someone who social studies are my job I can gently say that social issues are from I have seen not one of them.No offense.<<

        I cannot make sense or parse this sentence at all. Please elaborate. This is just gibberish.
        I went back and read this about 6 times, still can’t make anything out of it.

      • Chatcat says:

        OMG lafairy…you made my day with that post! I needed to laugh and here I sit giggling like a teenage girl. Thank you!

      • lafairy says:


        Please you are just welcome !

      • gg says:

        Lawrence was a WRITE-IN and STILL won first. I’d say that shows a hell of a lot of influence on the voters for this poll.

    • Diana says:

      Well Christina, I don’t think you did anything wrong. You were simply stating your opinion. apparently if you don’t worship J-Law then you must be nuts and out of order.

      I have pretty mixed feelings about her. Sometimes I like her, sometimes I don’t, but I do think she’s way overrated, so in this stances I agree with you.

      • Chatcat says:

        Ugh…Diana you missed the point. It wasn’t Christina’s opinion of Lawrence…we all have our likes and dislikes and share those opinions here at CB. It was her dismissal of the poll results because “‘hot 100′ polls tend to be fairly useless in judging who men, or women, really fancy. All they really tell us is who has the hardest working PR team at any given moment.”

        It’s a poll on hot women! It isn’t going to rock or change the world as we know it…it is entertainment just like this site. The results came out and she is going to dispute it and say it’s useless? It might be pointless in the grand scheme of things, but it isn’t useless. “click on the bubble of your choice of hotness…submit…we will publish the results when the poll closes and we will name the winner of those who responded”. It is clear in that to those that took this poll; “men and women really fancied” JLaw over all their other choices. Jeez

      • lafairy says:

        totally agree with you. I find this girl just above homely most of my girlfriens are prettier. talented and down to earth she is, but hot she is far from it but well, roll eye.

      • Isa says:

        I think I should amend my previous post: I don’t mind grammatical errors as long as I can understand your sentence(s)

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Lafairy-I like you, you know that, but saying that your friends are prettier than J. Lawrence really does nothing to further your point.

        You’re a smart girl-you know that “most desirable” doesn’t necessarily mean “most physically attractive”, so while your friends might be incredibly beautiful, it doesn’t mean every man on the face of the earth desires them.

        Part of Jennifer Lawrence’s appeal is that she comes across as smart, humble, funny, and very attractive. As a woman, I’m sure you understand how those qualities make her appealing and desirable to men.

        For myself, if a guy is funny, smart, has a great voice and a good (i.ei big) dong then that makes him “desirable” to me. He might not be what every woman fantasizes about but it’s the TOTAL package that makes someone appealing-not just physical appearance.

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Lafairy, just because you disagree with someone’s politics, doesn’t make them uninformed. This is the only conceivable reason I can come with regarding that subtle dig @chatcat. You have to give it to the woman, she does know what she’s talking about and always has facts to back up her opinions (when she’s arguing politics). Be open minded and consider that there are intelligent people who hold views contrary to yours. The most intelligent people I know surround themselves with others whose opinions differ; and it’s made them more intelligent, well rounded people. Those who profess to know the most, often know the least, but think they’re the most well informed because they only surround themselves with people who agree with them.

      • lafairy says:

        Aw you know I like you too.

        But let’s say we disagree on this one.

        I totally agree with you on what the definition of desirability BUT this is askmen , all the girls in the top 10 are under 30 and half of them under 25 which give a great indication about how much physical appearance has been totally favour toward other traits.
        Otherwise I have a hard time understanding the presence of Mirranda Kerr, who is totally stunning but I am kind of still searching for her personality.

        So there are great chances that this poll is not really found on all the subjective and charming details that make in real life one desirable to someone else. Being a smart girl yourself I am sure you know that.

        So without fooling ourselves it is quite safe to assume that desirability as conceived by ASkmen, the very magazine who crowned Kim Kardashian the most desirable once (so not really The New Yorker) is mainly based on looks.

        “so while your friends might be incredibly beautiful, it doesn’t mean every man on the face of the earth desires them.” Sure but what can we assume for a girl who is even less gifted in the looks department then?

        To me Jennifer Lawrence is indeed sweet, approachable, talented down to earth and funny, but in the looks department she is attractive just like the average girl her age, hence my comparison to my friends: amongst her demographic she barely stands out in term of desirability as conceived mainly on looks…well how men’s magazine generally see it.

  4. Gracie says:

    I like Jennifer, but she’s still herp a derp in da face. These lists are idiotic and vapid, aside from jlaw and the Olympian, the rest are unremarkable, and will strip for any camera or lens taped to a box. That’s all.

    As an aside, I don’t get the love for Emma stone. She annoys me to no end with the quirky schtick, it’s the same way I find Zoey Deschanel (sp? Ah well, it stays) insufferable with the whole *snort snort I’m a hot dork* act.

  5. Amelia says:

    Not a bad choice. I’ve got a couple of male colleagues who think she’s gorgeous and healthy looking and she’s certainly not a cookie cutter movie star.
    I can’t for the life of me understand why KStew is on there, though. The same colleagues think she’s a miserable little toe rag who needs a good wash.
    But hey, these lists are rarely representative of the general public.

  6. Launicaangelina says:

    My boyfriend and I were talking about her the other day. We saw her on tv and he asked who she was. I’ve never seen any of her movies but I was able to explain who she is anyway. When talking about her, I mentioned that some people make negative comments about her weight and body. He was blown away. He said she looks amazing and those people talking about her body are stupid. He, along with many of us, are tired of society thinking ‘stick thin’ equals beauty and perfection. Every time I look at her, I think she looks great. The body talk is stupid and I’m over it.

  7. marie says:

    I actually like the photshoot.. I don’t believe that men were polled though.I would have to explain to my bf who half of those girls are (Stewart and Lawrence-he’d have no clue)-and he would tell me Kunis needs to be number 1 with Rhianna number 2 since she likes to be spanked..true story

  8. Skipper says:

    She is sexier and prettier when she is just being, like those pics of her at the beach. She never comes across well in shoots and always makes that face in the last pic. Not everyone is a model.

  9. LaBetenoir says:

    Haha, I read the header as “Joey Lawrence” and was, in turns confused, and slightly disappointed.

  10. Erinn says:

    I’d rather see men vote her most desirable than a bobble head kind of girl who has to starve herself just to stay relevant in Hollywood.

    I’m not saying Jennifer is the most interesting celebrity by any means, but I like her. And I think maybe they like her because she’s more like a regular girl than many others on the list.

    • flan says:

      Yes, me too.

      I’m also glad it’s an Oscar nominated actress who now plays a strong, action protoganist in a popular franchise.

      I’ve rather that people take note of someone like that as desirable than the less talented KStew, who heads a franchise wherein a woman whose world revolves her stalker boyfriend.

      I know that these two actresses are not Bella and Katniss, but that is what people will associate them with.

      • CC says:

        For me it’s more KStew’s lousy attitude that pisses me off. “I wear couture, I have perks, I activelly seek a movie career that pays but I don’t give a shit! No, really I don’t!”. Most actors would kill (the disturbed ones even literally) to have a shot at her (likely fleeting) fame and career. Most actors struggle through their entire careers as nothing more than extras.

  11. Mia 4S says:

    I always find it funny commenting on this list considering I’m a straight woman. I’ve loved Jennifer’s performances and she’s a good interview. Desirable? How the hell would I know?! I like the choice, but I doubt I’m judging the same way the men (or gay/bi women) would.

  12. Miss Kiki says:

    I like Jennifer a lot and I think this shoot is great BUT I think I’m going to have ease back on reading ever article about her that pops up on here because otherwise she’ll start to start to annoy me and I’ll feel about her the way I now feel about Anne Hathaway.

  13. mln76 says:

    I think she’s great I saw Silver Lining Playbook and she is so good in that movie she’s the ‘complete package’ she holds her own in a scene with Robert Dinero which couldn’t be said for most actresses under 30. That being said I think these lists are arbitary like they never have their #5 on the cover.

  14. Nya says:

    I never really paid attention to any of her interviews until recently, but lordy is she a dumb hick.

  15. Jenna says:

    Hmm…she’s cute but…eh. It’s probably the fact that she seems like a blast to hang around; that adds to it. Looks aren’t everything.

    And Kristen Stewart is on there? LOL The laugh that I got from that damn well near made my morning. -sigh- Good stuff.

  16. CTgirl says:

    Wow. It’s amazing how so many women can be so critical of another woman without analyzing what the above list is highlighting. This list isn’t about only physical beauty. It’s about being desirable. Intelligence, a sense of humor, confidence, and being comfortable in your own skin are traits that I find add to the desirability of a man. Why are women so unwilling to attribute those kinds of qualities to a woman and immediately default to physical beauty being the only trait influencing being desirable? Most women making these comments about JL would rip a man a new one if a guy talked only about physical beauty equating to desirability. Just. Wow.

      riiiiiight attitude comes into play.. thats why miserable kristen stewart and dumb as rocks kate upton are on there.

    • Kasey says:

      @ CTgirl: I hear what you’re saying. My incredulity is based on the fact that while I, as a woman, think intelligence, humor, comfort in one’s own skin desirable, men have CONSISTENTLY shown me that they place a higher value on physical beauty. Maybe those polled are much younger than the men I come across or maybe I and the many single women I know who possess those traits are THAT physically undesirable that it outweighs them in the eyes of the MANY men I know who overlook quality women whose characters they’ve known and proven yet don’t consider pursuing while they chase down the random, new beauty that pops out of nowhere that they know nothing about and sometimes have unattractive personalities. Yeah, it’s personal.

      • CTgirl says:

        Start hanging out with a better class of guys :-) I have brothers and grew up with lots of guys around the house and I think that made me comfortable with men. I’ve seen lots of women who just aren’t comfortable with their interactions with men. While I’m attractive I’m not a raving beauty and I’ve never had someone break up with me because someone prettier came along. We women tend to go towards the bad guy or players (let’s face it they tend to be exciting to hang around with) but if you want a relationship based on more than attitude or looks you have to identify the good guys based on an attraction that transcends just the physical. We put too much on men when ultimately it’s our decision who we invest our time in.

      • CC says:

        To be honest, when guys bring out their inner Neanderthal, they solely judge on looks. And that’s the reasoning behind these lists (and how they’re compiled), or KStew would never be in there. Is there anyone with a lousier, bitchier attitude?

    • Kasey says:

      Hey CTgirl,
      I grew up with mostly guy friends and am quite comfortable around them. I think I have pretty good tastes in guys they just don’t reciprocate my feelings. And they don’t dump women for prettier ones they just take years to pursue anyone even though they are around some AWESOME women that I’d find the total package if I were a guy.

      Most of my guy friends love hanging out and rave about me to our friends and my family. It’s then when someone questions them that it comes out that even though they enjoy spending time with me and will compliment me to high heavens they see me as a sister/just a friend. It’s the same with a lot of my girl friends.

      My one American friend thinks that b/c I’m from the Caribbean where people are less rigid in their ideals of beauty I just don’t get that the guys in my circle just aren’t attracted to my look/type. That may be but it doesn’t explain all the wonderful girlfriends I have of varying ethnicities and body types who are also in this situation. And if so, I think I’m cute and can’t change how they perceive me. It is what it is.

      Anyway I’m moving in a month! However, I’m headed South and I just don’t see the situation there being better than when I was in DC. Oh well, I’m thankful I enjoy friendships and am happy (if not sometimes baffled) in my singleness!

      • Brandi says:

        I cannot imagine why a friend would tell you that guys just aren’t into your look. I think when you meet the right person a certain “look” doesn’t matter. You can think you like one thing but meet someone you find desirable even though it wasn’t what you thought was your type!(I think that goes for men & women) My husband tends to like redheaded celebs but that’s not me. I’m convinced he liked me because I made him laugh. I’m sure he wanted to hook up too;-) but for a long term relationship people take more than just looks into consideration. Good luck on your move!

    • flor says:

      It’s because women area mainly attracted to girls’ girl and Jennifer gives the impression that she would leave you aside and hang out with all the boys. And the same goes for Miranda Kerr and Charlize Theron. Now, Mila Kunis I believe she is a boys’ girl but she seems genuine and nice whereas Jennifer does like the attention she gets and wants to be loved. And to me, at least to me, that is a turn off.
      I like women like Cate Blanchett, Keira Knightley and Kate Winslet… Women that do not to be over the top all the time to get attention.
      Jennifer is praised for being classy and not looking like a slut during photoshoots (which I diagree with) but so does Rooney Mara and the lovely Mia Wasikowska but nobody praises them for that.
      I do not even find hr talented. I studied acting when I was younger and was a theatre actress for a while and the girl has no technique and her performances are mediocre at best but it seems like Hollywood was needing a blond American actress to make its queen so Jennifer came along and got the part.
      I really do not find her appeal, I am sorry.

      • CTgirl says:

        @Flor, fair enough. My post was more about women equating desirability to physical beauty and leaving out all the other stuff that makes one desirable, rather than being a post on JL. Personal taste is totally subjective and that’s what makes for a good conversation :-)

      • angie says:

        lol you really think highly of yourself *rolls eyes*
        just because you studied ‘acting’ does not mean you are a specialist in what good acting constitutes
        may be that’s why you are just reading comments on a board and meanwhile, jennifer lawrence at 22 is already a one oscar nominee and having all the success at such a young age

      • Kate (newer one) says:

        I like her a lot from interviews I read – I’m a bit meh about televised ones, as she comes over as less than mature, but then I read UK Elle, and she said she is so nervous and so anxious to please in interviews, her brain just shuts down and her mouth opens. So I give her a pass on that. I don’t think she’s stupid; just a 22 year old with an audience present having to talk about herself on national television, and her nerves make her babble. I liked that she says she has no patience with stars who won’t talk and are hostile as a way of handling the fear, because it’s rude. And I liked that she was blunt about doing “sexy” photoshoots after Winter’s Bone. She said she’d never get offered a wide variety of parts, as men run Hollywood, and they pigeonhole women. And after WB, her slot was plaid shirts and beanie hats, so she had to alter that. She was not happy about it, but said she would do it again because it worked.

        I also like that I read an interview in which she said she didn’t trust women without female friends, because as far as she could see that wasn’t because they were cool, it was because other women recognise bitches. And she said her girlfriends have been really upset by the paparazzi shots that hit the stands, because pics of them – being incidental – are usually horrible, so she googled “Jennifer Lawrence ugly” to cheer them up, by showing awful ones of her – and then her mother found it in her history and was scared shitless that her child was being damaged. She was very funny about it.

        She also said some rather sobering things about the paparazzi. She said that she always thought it must be annoying, but it was actually frightening, because even though she knows they mean no harm, as a young woman you’re hardwired to find men following you scary. It scares her, and it makes friends who’ve not encountered it before freak out quite badly. I could sympathise with that.

        I’m sad, because Kate Winslet was very normal and lovable at this age too, and is now a complete prima donna PITA. And the odds of Lawrence remaining as she is seem slim to me. I suppose it’s a possibility that Lawrence is fundamentally more secure than Winslet is, and hopefully her family situation is stronger because none of them are showbiz, so it won’t go to her head as much. And that the body image thing is more securely based, too. Winslet plainly always had serious issues on that score, and I don’t get the sense Lawrence does. She’s in good shape and apparently always was – no food issues in either direction. Winslet has been very big and very small.

        I thought she was amazing in Winter’s Bone, and we’re seeing Silver Linings Playbook tomorrow so will be interested to see how she is in that. My husband isn’t a massive fan, as he thought she was okay in Hunger Games, but nothing extraordinary. I love Bradley Cooper, too. And David O Russell can do no wrong.

        As to her talent – well, I’m no trained actor, but given rather a lot of people with experience and objectivity seem to rate her very highly, I doubt the mediocrity view is that common. It isn’t as though Winter’s Bone had a lot of money behind it, so her Oscar nom appears to be solidly on merit there, rather than a campaign, or down to huge box office.

        Agree on Mia Wasikowska, though. We thought she had a huge career ahead when we first saw her in UK Skins.

      • flor says:

        @angie WoW. Yah, off course I a,a sitting here because I was. Theater actress in Argentina and NOT in the USA and no, I do not think highly of myself, I was just stating my opinion and, if you want the truth, no actor I know likes her acting.
        BTW, you sound do immature. The next time you want to hurt someoneelse’s feelings, at least, know that person’s background

    • HotPockets says:

      I understand your point CTgirl, but then why is Rihanna on there or even Kim Kardashian? Why on earth is Charlize Theron put so low on the list, when she embodies intelligence, beauty, desire,and classiness, but K-stew makes the top ten?

    • Sweet Dee says:

      Yeah? You know a lot of guys who check up on the gossip scene and intently read interviews because they’re interested in these women’s personalities? I don’t.

      And it’s not because the men I know are shallow, either. It’s because they don’t care.

  17. Aubra says:

    LMAO…well as an “average black woman”,I must say the “regular white girl” comment reaked of shade! But whatever! I think what alot of women (and those who aren’t of the RWG variety included) don’t realize is that alot of guys vote these women on the list for looks, but also what persona these women project. Jennifer seems like the hot yet cool chick that is down to earth and isn’t threatening in any way. Alot of guys like that

    • irishserra says:

      Exactly my thoughts. What we women define as sexy, I’ve come to learn, is NOT what men view as sexy. My husband finds more appeal in what I might consider the “average” girls, but he’d never look twice at a Kardashian or Rhianna. My husband tends to crush on women who exude more substance than makeup, boobs and legs.

  18. Val5 says:

    indeed! she’s a beutiful young woman , with a helthy and curvy body. plus a very talented actress, well deserved.

  19. Amory says:

    I think she’s a solid choice. She is known for her acting as much or more than her looks, and that’s a positive thing. I also think it’s great that at least some of the women on the list, and especially the first few, are not painfully thin and without curves. Hope women realize that starving themselves does not make them the most attractive.

    I’m also amused because this will really cause the Kristen Stewart fans to whip into a frenzy. Not sure why so many of them hate Jennifer.

  20. MichelleR says:

    I’m sorry, I just don’t see it. She’s pretty but most desirable is a serious OVERstatement. If I saw her in a mall and she wasn’t a celebrity, I wouldn’t even give her a second look. I would think a “most desirable” would be a spectacular beauty or had a fabulous body. My go-to person on this type of thing would be Charlize Theron. Great Beauty and could stand out in any crowd. This girl just looks like any random girl to me. She isn’t ugly….but most desirable? Come on…seriously??!!

    • CC says:

      The same can be said for the male stars. The fact that their stars adds to the mystique, not the looks. Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Mac-what’s-his-face (the guy with the Texas accent)? Ugh. If they weren’t stars, no one would give them a second glance.

      I’ve seen prettier men in real life.

  21. Sara says:

    Adriana Lima should be in top 15. and she is only 27.

  22. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I thinks she’s too young. It’s a bit creepy to me, actually. Maybe I just can’t see past her as little Katniss (sp?)

  23. melanie says:

    “Sexy in a very subtle way”. You MUST be joking. The girl screams sex but because she acts silly in interviews nobody calls her out. She does exactly the same thing that Mila Kunis does but Mila at least is pretty and does not look like a cashier from Kentucky. And neither of them can act but off course being part of the Harvey W machine makes you an instant resppected actress. SMH.

    • liz says:

      I think the only Harvey W production she’s been in is the SLP, i might be wrong but Winter’s Bone was a true indie (and really good!) and HG is a studio film. So i don’t think she one of Harvey’s girls.

      • flor says:

        She is, I am sorry for disappointing you. She got Dior because of Harvey. She doesn’t even suit the brand she’s more like a Dolce & Gabbana girl, you know, sultry and bombshell-like, not classy, feminine and elegant.

      • liz says:

        I am not a American so I am not as familiar how this works but Jlaw has two films next year she’s working on the HG sequel and the x-man sequel nether of which have anything to do with Harvey W. I agree that the Dior contract will raise her profile but will the ads be out before the Oscars? And if not why would he help her get that?. I’m not trying to be disagreeable but I do find it interesting that she is being described above as part of his machine and yes I imagine he will want her to get the Oscar nomination but after the award season over their not working together. That’s what I meant by Harvey girls.

  24. Andrew says:

    I really like her. And I do think she’s very attractive without forcing. And for people who are saying the only reason she made 1 is because she’s temporarily the ‘in’ thing is wrong. She’s a very talented actress that is definitely going to be around for a long time. She was excellent in Silver Linungs Playbook, and may when the Oscar for it. She also wonderful in Winter’s Bone. That’s why I like her…she can do some serious acting, but also kick ass in movies like the hunger games

  25. RobN says:

    I don’t think that I’ve ever met a single guy who thinks that Kristen Stewart is hot or desirable. Not a single one.

  26. Kris says:

    Meh, she annoys me now because she’s always talking about how she’s the only actress who isn’t starving herself and that she’ll be the only one without any rumors of anorexia. Yep JLaw because all actresses who are thinner than you are starving themselves and ALL actresses but you have had anorexia rumors. Yeah we get it your body is perfect but you get to eat whatever you want whenever you want. Unlike those bitches who are apparently not eating anything. Jeesh lady why don’t you come down from your horse and join all the common people.

  27. HotPockets says:

    These lists seemed rushed together. I went through the whole thing last night and was completely puzzled.

    First, no Kate Beckinsale and there was outrage over it on the comment thread too! Everyone tells me I look like her, so of course I am upset when she isn’t on the hot list lol.

    Second, where was Amber Heard? She is so beautiful.

    Third, you’re going to put Blake Lively on there and not Leighton Meester? Why?

    No Angelina Jolie??

    Michele Obama and Hope Solo? Maybe because they’re inspirational, but Hope Solo seems like a brat.

    I still don’t get the Mila Kunis obsession, when she isn’t done up, she looks very normal, if not a little homely.

  28. Lisa says:

    I bristle when women make refusal to be stick-thin part of their identity. That alone would put me off of her.

  29. Migdalia says:

    Lolz I love how we talk about how vain a guy can be about women, but I see a lot of skepticism and women hating on other women. It’s how you portray yourself and your personality that makes your beauty or uniqueness shine through.

    I think Jennifer is unique looking as in no one else in Hollywood looks like her and I love that she’s a general dork which listen a lot of these guys that even did the poll are.

    Yay for Jennifer!
    Yay for Mila!
    Ugh for Kristen Stewart (she would be desirable if she weren’t such a b$&ch), but hey guys love that too apparently.

  30. gabe says:

    Honestly, I’d understand how women would vote Jennifer in as Most Desirable, but I’m quite surprised that men would as well. I like her a lot as an actress, and I guess she’s kind of sexy in an earthy, “sure, let’s try having sex that way then have ice cream in bed after” kind of way, but I’d never think of her as the ultimate hottie. Then again, Emma Stone and Kristen Stewart, two actresses who have very little sex appeal to me, are also in the top 10, so maybe men’s perception has changed? Or, AskMen’s 99 is just another one of those publicist-driven lists like the FHM 100.

    • A says:

      I know a ton of guys who love Emma Stone…more than a lot of the other actresses on this list. I adore Emma, but that does suprise me. I also don’t think this is a PR thing like GQ or FHM…those magazines are well known, this is some random website. I would pick Charlize, Angelina, Mila, that new Bond girl, Lucy Liu, Adriana Lima, Kerry Washington, etc over most of these women, and I would think most guys would too.

      • HotPockets says:

        My hubby can’t stand Emma Stone for some reason. I asked him why because I rented, “the help” and he won’t watch it, he told me he thinks she is annoying, unfunny and hard to watch in every movie she has been in. I was surprised. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Any woman’s looks, personality, desirability are subjective.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      >>I like her a lot as an actress, and I guess she’s kind of sexy in an earthy, “sure, let’s try having sex that way then have ice cream in bed after”<<

      And that might be why dudes like her too. ;)

  31. j.eyre says:

    It’s an interesting list – slightly more varied than I have seen, which I like. personally I would like to have seen even more variety in education, race and age but nobody really asked me.

    I like the photo shoot – esp. the second to last picture with her next to the window.

  32. Sweet Dee says:

    So I’m the only one who still has a hate-on for her bangs?

    I’m sure she’s as smart/funny/talented/ignorant/stupid/boring/fat/skinny/tough/rough/redneck/original as everyone says and all, but I don’t care about anything else about her right now because all I can see is her AWFUL BANGS. Who cares if they’re not winged? They’re split down the middle just sitting there, all blunt and stupid looking.

    I know, I’m a bangs bigot, but SHEESH. When you have tons of money there’s no excuse for stupid hair.

  33. bns says:

    Kristen Stewart made the top 10. List invalid.

    Besides, these lists are never about desirability, but popularity.

  34. Diana says:

    I love it how most commenters find the top choice to be good and validate the poll and then rant about K-screw being in it. I know many man who think Kristen is very beautiful and have endure an entire twilight movie for her alone. What people like is very subjective and just because you don’t like a certain type of beauty, or desirability in this case, that doesn’t mean it’s wrong or right. This is just a representation of what’s popular and that’s it.

  35. BlueAngelCV says:

    Hell yeah, she’s my number 1.

    I’m also surprised about the inclusion of K Stew. Not because she’s not pretty or sexy but because she’s not a very obvious choice. She doesn’t do the “sexy” photoshoots and she’s the type of attractive that women usually appreciate more than men.

  36. Mila says:

    I actually think its cool they named her most desirable. Although those kind of titles are idiotic. I like her body type because it’s similar to mine. And i don’t see often my body type in media.

  37. Arcina says:

    Michele Jenneke: not an Olympic athlete. Cute girl who did a warm up dance at a Junior event, not good enough to qualify this time around.

  38. Simone says:

    Look at all the women above Charlize Theron. Enough said. The list is a joke.

  39. StaCat1 says:

    I like Jennifer Lawrence she seems like a real humble actress. And she actually has talent…which can’t be said about many.

    The others are whatever, in my opinion. Stewart is running about with married men who have children and Rhianna is reuniting with a guy who beat her up. Hardly desireable traits, in my opinion.

    I do think it’s sad there are not older women–somehow a woman hits a certain age and she is no longer desireable?
    Clearly some people do not know what is up? LOL!!

  40. B says:

    I love her – I think she’s a suitable choice.

    I too am surprised by Jessica Pare being on that list, though. I guess she’s pretty, but I didn’t think that she was that big of a deal or even on most people’s/men’s radars. She’s just some crappy actress.

    They’ve really been trying hard to make Jessica Pare “happen” as the exciting, new “breakout” star of Mad Men and I’ve just never bought it. I think that she’s an awful actress and her character was dull.

  41. Suze says:

    Maybe I just live in Ugly Town (and it’s very possible) but I don’t know a lot of women who are better looking than Jennifer Lawrence.

    I can see how men would find her hot and desirable. Women, too.

  42. Kosmos says:

    Oh, this is kind of ridiculous. Jennifer is a good actress, attractive, but doesn’t deserve any male awards for being above the rest….this is probably just a passing fancy and trendy at the moment.

  43. Amy C says:

    I think she is cute tall and curvy more in cury side true. May be even a bit hideous? But she sound curious, hungry and determind so that give her an apeal for sure.

  44. Shane says:

    As a male. What exactly is wrong with her? She has a beautiful face. Her body isn’t “Vogue Anorexic?” She doesn’t have ill proportioned fake breasts? She’s not fake Barbie beautiful?

    • Jessica says:

      I completely agree Shane. This thread has really irritated me in way others haven’t (and I post semi-regularly). I understand this is a gossip site but I am really taken aback by the strong, negative hate fest being thrown here. A 22 year old girl has been recognized as a desirable woman, acknowledging not only her looks, as some magazines do, but other qualities such as talent, confidence and personality – ones we as women often complain that men don’t consider or care about. Jennifer is being paid a nice compliment, and instead of celebrating her and this nod, as women we should be, we are tearing her down and criticizing her to a downright nasty point. I feel it is women who are the harsher judges of other women, not men – and that is disappointing. I particularly find the comments that Jennifer is unintelligent disgusting and not conducive to female empowerment.

  45. Ranunculus says:

    I find her a bit overrated as an actress, a bit like Emma Stone, the IT girl of the moment. I doubt she will be around for the long haul. But that’s just MHO

  46. Vera says:

    JLaw is my girl crush. Glad to see her #1

  47. M. says:

    Congratulations, Jennifer!…Jennifer Lawrence is a wonderful choice, imho. I have been reading comments on other boards and on Twitter and the response has been wonderful. So, there you go. The Vogue spread is lovely…very sexy and Lawrence is having a helluva year and good for her…she’s earned it. In fact, this will be Jennifer Lawrence’s second time around for the awards season time (after only a couple of years!) amazing.

    Anyway, Lawrence is both talented and very attractive so I suppose that those who have a problem with that are going to have to just deal with it!(LOL!) .
