20 Utterly Sexy British Actors

20 Utterly Sexy British Actors
It's hard to deny it - there's something really attractive about a British accent. We don't know if it's the inflection or the vocabulary (Collywobbles? Bollocks? Gobsmacked?), but whatever it is, it's hot.

Alexander Pettyfer was born in Hertfordshire, England, and has appeared in films including "Alex Rider: Operation Stormbreaker," "Magic Mike," "I Am Number 4" and "Beastly." He started out as a model, working for brands such as Gap and Burberry.

It was once rumored that the star famously had the phrase "Thank You" tattooed above his crotch, but it's actually just his name. He has dated...

Kit Harington Says 'It's Only Right' To Get Naked For 'Game Of Thrones'

March 29th, 2014 10:55pm EDT
Kit Harington GQ
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington has landed the cover of the April issue of GQ magazine, sharing his thoughts on the show's nudity and sex scenes, the violence, and buffing up for his big screen debut in Pompeii.

"It's only right, if you're going to make a show where nudity and sex is a large part of it, that you be a part of that," Harington says about the brief love scene he shot for season three with co-star Rose Leslie.

But don't be fooled -- while that was Rose standing nude in front of him, it wasn't Kit's behind that viewers were seeing.

"When it came down to it I had a broken a...

'Pompeii' Stars Kit Harrington And Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Hit Philadelphia

'Pompeii' Stars Kit Harrington And Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Hit
Last Monday, I attended the screening and red carpet interviews of 'Pompeii' stars Kit Harington ('Game of Thrones') and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ('Thor 2', 'Oz') at Philadelphia's Franklin Institute. 'Pompeii,' directed by Paul W. S. Anderson ('Resident Evil'), stars Carrie-Anne Moss ('Matrix'), Kiefer Sutherland ('24') and Emily Browning ('Lemony Sknickett'). The primary plot surrounds two Gladiators who duel it out for freedom, love and friendship while toiling beneath the shadows of a tremulous Mt. Vesuvius.

I feel Adewale's return to the area is kismet. I was supposed to interview him...

Game of Thrones
The first full-length trailer for season four of Game of Thrones has finally arrived, revealing new characters, battles, betrayals, struggles and... that there's still three months we have to wait for the April 6 premiere.

Producers packed a ton of stuff into the 1:45 trailer, which debuted Sunday night on HBO and picks up where the events of last season left off.

An aerial view of King's Landing dominates the opening shot of the preview as a dragon's shadow flies over the city. The city is very clean and peaceful looking, leading us to believe this is part of a dream sequence.

Cut to Ki...

Joseph Gordon-Leavitt, Robin Thicke, Alexander Skarsgard
Fans of erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" went ballistic earlier this week when the announcements of the two leads in the film adaptation of the book came from none other than author E.L. James herself.

When people found out that Dakota Johnson, the aspiring actress daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, landed the lead role of Anastasia Steele and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam would be play the domineering Christian Grey, they spoke up and started petitions to get the roles re-cast.

Unfortunately, Hollywood doesn't work that way and a lot of factors had to be considered du...

Game of Thrones
With the third season of Game of Thrones just days away, what better way than to celebrate with a slideshow of the hot guys featured on the series?

Yesterday we brought you the lovely ladies featured on the show, and today we want to see how well the guys clean up after getting all that medieval dirt and grime washed away.

A few of these guys have already been killed off the show -- and we're sure it's only a matter of time before more of them follow.

In fact, if you've read the books (highly recommended) then you already know whose time should come this season, which focuses on roughly ...

Emilia Clarke Game of Thrones season 3 premiere
While fans are salivating for the third season of "Game of Thrones" to begin later this month, several members of the cast attended the premiere in Hollywood on Monday night.

Emilia Clarke wowed in an electric blue strapless dress, making quite a departure from her blonde haired character Daenerys Targaryen. The actress recently told GQ magazine how she often goes unrecognized in public.

"It takes a die-hard fan to actually spot me," she explained. "These HBO events, where I'll be talking to someone for a fair amount of time, and then suddenly they're like, Oh sh*t! That's what you do! Th...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 5 - 'The Ghost Of Harrenhal'

April 30th, 2012 7:52pm EDT
Game of Thrones
If there’s one thing “Game of Thrones” doesn’t do, is waste time. Last week’s episode closed with shots of sorceress Melisandre birthing some monstrous shadow, a wispy, manlike demon summoned for some mysterious bidding. This week’s episode, “The Ghost of Harrenhaal,” opened rather routinely: Catelyn and Renly were chatting about kingly things while Brienne helped Renly remove his armor. And then, with a fellow swoop, the shadow demon entered, stabbed Renly, and fled. All in the first five minutes.

The abruptness of the deed was cold, indeed. Brienne cried out in horror at the loss of her ...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Season 2, Episode 4 - 'Garden Of Bones'

April 23rd, 2012 8:09pm EDT
Game of Thrones
If last night's episode of "Game of Thrones" doesn't get people talking, I don't know what will.

I'm sure dedicated book fans were expecting those final shots, when sorceress Melisandre gave birth to… a shadow baby? As a non-book reader, I'm murky on the details. But I do know that I finished this episode with an audible exhale of breath. Not only was it the most outwardly fantastical scene of the show so far (with the exception, perhaps, of Dany's dragons), but it was wrought with tension. I was expecting the birth of an illegitimate Stannis baby, after their steamy sex scene last week. W...

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Meet Brienne Of Tarth And Margaery Tyrell In 'What Is Dead May Never Die'

April 16th, 2012 4:30pm EDT
Game of Thrones
"Game of Thrones" is nothing if not expansive (understatement of the century). Characters who get the silent treatment for long drags of time have a tendency to crop up as soon as they’re forgotten. That reinsertion takes centerfold in this week’s installment, with Renly Baratheon’s quest for glory as the overarching storyline. 

Like his brothers, Robert and Stannis, Renly is a noble man, a little too proud and a little too stubborn to assume the leadership role he so rightfully seeks. With bastard child Joffrey at reign, Westeros is in the thick of an ugly war, new enemies and allegiances...

Game of Thrones 2.01 Recap: The North Remembers
In almost every instance, I'm a book girl first, adaptation fan second. It's been a long-standing tradition of mine to visit the original source material for the main course, and then follow up with a nice movie or TV show dessert. But I came to "Game of Thrones" long after the final episode aired last season, when I happened on it On Demand the day after Christmas. I'd been meaning to watch it, but I wanted to read the books first (I owned the first two already, so I had no excuse). But tempted by boredom and the lure of episodes in crystal-clear HD, I decided "what the hell?" and watched ...
