Is the 21st c the Time of Unconventional Hotness?

currently playing on my iPod: Blue Moon by Beck

Man/womankind has always appreciated a pretty face. Because SCIENCE, people. Not really just because we are shallow. But lately, it seems we humans (at least those into TV) are leaning more toward the Interesting rather than the Perfect-faced for our virtual crushes.

Point #1. Game of Thrones


Take a look at the cast. Oh, we LOVE them, don’t we? We follow them on Instatweet and Facegram just to get another peek at Jon, Ygritte, the Khaleesi, Rob, Tyrion, Margaery, et al. But really. Look at them. They are gorgeous to me. To you, probably. But their cool faces don’t check off the normal list of sexy features. They have interesting noses, varying heights, a little smaller or larger than normal eyes. It’s intriguing. We love that each can act like a boss.

Point #2. BBC’s Sherlock

Benedict Cumberbatch himself claims he looks like Sid the Sloth from Ice Age. I disagree, but I do hold that his jawline isn’t what Hollywood usually requests. But the voice! Oh, the voice. Anyone who can cover for Snape in an episode of The Simpsons is made of awesome. And of course, his name. Not the typical handsome Jack Soandso. By the way, if you haven’t checked out benedictcumberbatchnamegenerator, you should. Incidentally, my BCNG name is Honkytonk Scratchnsniff, thanks very much.

So yeah, the 21st century is all about unconventional sexiness, and WE LOVE IT. It’s freeing!

Give me a shout if you see another fine example and we’ll add it as Point #3. Until then, embrace your intriguing, funky upper lip and your broad forehead! You may be the next unconventional hottie.

  1. Lara and I call this the Christopher Meloni syndrome; men who aren’t classically handsome by prevailing socio-cultural standards, but who are absolutely magnetic. Great post (and I LOVE Peter Dinklage)!
