The book Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus was a best-seller for a very good reason. It’s because men and women truly are worlds apart, not just in looks but in the way they think, feel, speak, and act. They are triggered by a load of varying sensors, the most glaring of which is their perception of beauty.
It’s certainly true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but men usually have a certain set of standards that differ greatly from the woman’s point of view. Women can be catty when it comes to their views on who’s hot and who’s not. If a girl has huge boobs, women nastily say she got a breast augmentation. For great skin, she got botox. For a rocking body, she pays for a personal trainer and personal chef and plastic surgery. There’s just no pleasing women! But men don’t care whether a hot girl had any work done or not. All that matters is she’s sizzling. Period. Here’s a list of ladies that men think are hot, and can't get enough of.
16 Charlize Theron
She can never go wrong on the red carpet. Even when she’s wearing a sack, she can turn heads and land on the top spot of best-dressed celebrities in any Hollywood event. And best of all, she’s an amazing actress who has an Oscar tucked under her belt. Men definitely drool over Charlize Theron and she was named Esquire magazine’s sexiest woman alive in 2007. Women admire her sense of style and acting chops, but that’s as far as it goes. Her physique and smoldering eyes certainly cater more to the male market.
15 Anna Paquin
Winning an Academy Award at the tender age of 11 is truly a milestone and Anna Paquin certainly deserved it for her performance on The Piano. And she has also gone on to garner acclaim for the role she’s most known for as an adult actress (aside from her role as Rogue in the X-Men movie franchise, of course), that of Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO series True Blood. While many women will forever think of her as that little girl in The Piano, men see her in a whole new light, thanks to some nudity she had to do in True Blood.
14 Scarlett Johansson
She’s one of the few lucky ones who successfully transitioned to a serious adult actress and is most known for her recurring role as the Black Widow, the lone female avenger in the Marvel film franchise The Avengers. The part requires her to don sexy, skin-tight black outfits. Many girls wonder what Scarlett Johansson’s appeal is because while she’s pretty, we’ve definitely seen prettier. But Esquire magazine voted her the sexiest woman alive in 2013 and we deduce it’s because of her amazing body that men drool over. She’s not overly-skinny—she’s got nice breasts and a lovely round derriere.
13 Hayden Panettiere
Height has never been an issue for men. In fact, many men love petite girls. And Hayden Panettiere is certainly tiny enough to fit in a man’s pocket (figuratively of course), standing at barely five feet tall. But there’s nothing child-like about the 26-year-old’s figure. In fact, the Heroes and Nashville actress is all woman, especially when she struts her stuff on the red carpet. She’s got a great body, not too skinny and not too bulky, something that men truly appreciate.
12 Alyssa Milano
She started out as Tony Danza’s adorable daughter in the popular 1980s TV sitcom Who’s The Boss? As an adult, she was best known as the third and youngest sister Phoebe in the fantast TV show Charmed. But even as an adult, Alyssa Milano seems to possess perennially child-like features, which can be both an advantage and disadvantage in Hollywood, especially if she wants to have a more mature image. So the solution? A breast augmentation, which until today, she has never admitted to outright. But whether she’s had one or not, she’s certainly caught the attention of the men.
11 Christina Hendricks
Need we say why men find Christina Hendricks smoking hot? Make no mistake, women admire her too, but for very different reasons. Women like her for her ground-breaking and much-acclaimed performance for her role as Joan Holloway in the recently concluded drama series Mad Men. And she’s definitely pretty. But men drool over her alabaster skin, her sexy flaming red hair and most of all, her body, which many men swear was sculpted by the gods. And she never fails to display her rack to its full glory on the red carpet.
10 Jennifer Lawrence
A natural beauty to grace this is list is Jennifer Lawrence. Since becoming famous for her role as Katniss Everdeen, men everywhere have been in awe of this beauty. Maybe it's her personality, which in interviews comes across very down to earth, and her clumsiness at awards shows that remind us that she is human. From her beautiful face to her incredible physique, she has looks that we all can appreciate.
9 Demi Moore
There’s no doubt about it, Demi Moore looks amazing for her age. Many say she’s even more gorgeous now than ever. But whether she’s hot or not is a matter of opinion. She was beautiful in her youth with her big soulful grey eyes, delicate nose, and rosy lips. After a long hiatus, she re-surfaced with a crazy-hot body in the Charlie’s Angels sequel. And men have been going gaga over her since. The females, however, still love this actress but aren't as pulled in by her looks as much as men are.
8 Kate Upton
The name Kate Upton is almost always spoken out loud by males, mostly because she has appeared on several occasions in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Any human being with eyes can admit that she’s got a great body and is one of those lucky gals who are naturally endowed, but slender at the same time. Women do find this model attractive but she certainly has more of an appeal with men.
7 Angelina Jolie
When Angelina Jolie began a relationship with Brad Pitt, the general public was greatly divided because of how the relationship began, since Pitt was still married to Jennifer Aniston when he and Jolie fell in love. On the one hand, men saw her as dazzlingly sexy and said they couldn’t blame Pitt for leaving Aniston and hooking up with Jolie. But women saw things in a different light. Jolie was dubbed a homewrecker and many declared they were “Team Aniston” through and through.
6 Carey Mulligan
Both males and females alike think Carey Mulligan is endearing, there’s no doubt about that. From her British accent to her cute dimples to her girl-next-door features, she’s certainly been a fixture in Hollywood nowadays, from her first movie role in the 2005 film Pride and Prejudice to her breakthrough role in An Education and her latest blockbuster hit The Great Gatsby. Men find her hot because she’s got a great body, but has a naturally young-looking face.
5 Selena Gomez
One of the downsides of starting out in Hollywood as a child star is you never quite outgrow that little girl image. Which is why many child actors who tried to transition into adult roles would go to extremes to tell the whole world that they’re all grown up. But this tactic would never seem to work for Selena Gomez, though she’s still wildly popular today as a celebrity in her early twenties. She gives off that Lolita vibe because of her great figure contrasting with her baby face. Guys as we know, totally dig that.
4 Megan Fox
She drove men wild when she appeared in the film Transformers, playing the role of hot chic Mikaela Banes and they all envied Shia LaBeouf for being the ultimate geek who got Megan Fox. Of course, it was just a movie and LaBeouf didn’t get her in real-life—she was already in a relationship with Brian Austin Green, who’s a geek himself. Most of Fox’s fellow females, however, think that she is sexy but that the hype is overrated.
3 Emma Stone
Known for her witty humor as well as talent as an actress, Stone is an actress that men can't get enough of. Guys find her sexy as heck and appreciate her natural beauty. Women do certainly like this actress and find her quite beautiful, inside and out, but men are drawn in by her smile and her beautiful wide eyes.
2 Demi Lovato
Demi Lovato has not only been able to lock down a Hollywood playboy (Wilmer Valderrama) but has recently revamped her look which has guys everywhere drooling. This 23 year old has plenty of sex appeal, and her male fans are very thankful for her music videos as well as her performance outfits. She also proves to be a natural beauty in the recent Vanity Fair issue where she poses au naturel.
1 Mila Kunis
Being part of a hit TV sitcom like That ‘70s Show was definitely a good start for Mila Kunis’ fledgling career. She went on to star in other roles in films such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Friends With Benefits. But it was her role as Lily in the psychological thriller Black Swan that really cemented her status as a versatile adult actress. In the film, she got to make out with Natalie Portman and that in itself set the blood of thousands of males boiling hotly.
