The List (2015 Edition)

Yes, ladies (and gents, whatever rocks your boat!), it is time for my annual top ten list of my celebrity crushes.  These gentlemen all posses some incredible qualities that transcend looks (well, maybe not all, some I picked based solely on looks…oops.) So, here goes in no particular order:

Channing Tatum

Lord. I don’t know why I’m obsessed with Channing. He’s good looking, yes. But I think it’s because (a) he can dance and (b) we share the same birthday.  Plus he doesn’t come off as a cookie cutter cute hollywood leading actor; he has some swag and spice to him— and that’s attractive. Did I mention that he can dance?

Idris Elba 

This man’s entire aura just screams “fine for no reason.” I love Idris’ acting ability and his general suaveness. And let’s PLEASE make him the next James Bond, he was born for that role.


Jesse Williams 

So, I’ve been enamored with Jesse Williams since his Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants days (don’t question my movie watching habits), but it wasn’t until recently that I’ve been head over heels in celeb crush mode. Yes, he looks amazing, but the sexiest thing about Jesse is his intelligence and commitment to social issues. His ongoing support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement is intoxicating. A man who thinks (and shows such love to his wife) ooo wee, yes Lawd!


Morris Chestnut 

Morris must be a vampire, or have vampire like qualities because I don’t think aging is something he is capable of…and he is continuing to make his presence felt in the entertainment industry well into his forties. I’m loving his character on the new show Rosewood; always a pleasure seeing black men represented positively on mainstream television.


Theo James

Theo is new to the list; I like how he portrayed “Four” in the Divergent series of movies. I’m a sci-fi/fantasy movie kind of girl, so he was fun to watch in the action sequences.


Keanu Reeves

I have no logical reason for my infatuation with Keanu. I just like him. #ThatIsAll


Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Muscles. Tall. Million dollar smile. Yup, that about covers it.


Lenny Kravitz

Lenny Kravitz is SUCH a rockstar.  Who doesn’t love a true rockstar. Are we sure he’s 51? And yes, we, regrettably, missed the pants ripping incident, but we definitely heard about it, lol.



I have no idea who this model is, but he gets a mention on this list.  Found him  while I was stalking browsing around on Instagram. He has striking good looks (he’s also 6′ tall), and it’s so cool to see more and more Asian male models making the run in editorials and on the runway; hope the streak continues. POC need to be represented in more meaningful ways in the fashion industry than they currently are.

Denzel Washington 

Y’all can make fun of Uncle Denzel all you want, but he is still fine and has aged impeccably. He’s pretty much a permanent member on my list. His acting skills alone should make him a favorite.  Plus that “je nais se quoi” quality gets me every time. Denzel is the epitome of a “distinguished gentleman.”


So that’s it…all I got for 2015 (check out last year’s list as a comparison)  Who are your favs?  Who would be on your list? Let me know in the comments!
