Because this is the day after Halloween (and I am jealous of Heather for getting to post on a holiday) for this week I am choosing a hottie whose most recent character is a very popular costume this year. Johnny Depp, aka Cap'n Jack Sparrow.
It took me a long time to warm up to JD. I was never into 21 Jump Street. I saw Edward Scissorhands, but didn't think it was that great. Never even saw Benny & Joon or What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Not until The Ninth Gate did I begin to see his appeal--that geeky, unscrupulous book nut with the flames of H-E-double-hockeysticks on his heels. Then there was Sleepy Hollow--JD as Ichabod Crane, science geek turned police investigator. All that fog and suspense. Sigh.
This may be unpopular, but I even liked him in Blow. Even if he was an awful drug dealer. And as the opium-addicted, Jack-the-Ripper fighthing police inspector in From Hell.
Then came Cap'n Jack Sparrow. How is it that a completely unscrupulous, greedy, filthy, cursed pirate can be so freakin' hot? I mean, there's so much not to love... but I can't help myself. Partly it's the dark hair thing--clearly, I have a weakness. Partly it's the smile thing--Jack always pulls his tricks with a smile... and JD's teeth are just cute. Mainly, though, I think it's the eyes thing.
Confession time again. I also have a thing for guys in eyeliner. Not that I want a guy who actually wears makeup... but for some reason I just find it really attractive. Apparently I'm not the only one because there are entire websites devoted to this. I'm not sure why. Maybe it makes them look darker, more mysterious, more bad a$$.
Hottie question of the week... Guys in eyeliner: Hot or not?
