Clark Gable in Gone with the Wind
5. Rhett Butler
to Scarlett – “No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”
Now here’s one byronic hero who can ruin your reputation and spoil you rotten while he’s at it. “Go ahead Rhett, ruin me!” says my inner groupie. Hehehe.
Ed Westwick in Gossip Girl
4. Chuck Bass
to – Blair – “Not as clear as the sound of you purring in my ear, which I have been replaying over and over.”
Emphasis on the Season 1 Chuck Bass. God I love his witty one-liners– biting and ever so cruel. Sadly, everything went downhill for him in Season 2. Must be the hair!
Matthew McFadyen in Pride & Prejudice
3. Fitzwilliam Darcy
to Lizzie – “By my honesty in admitting scruples about our relationship. Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?”
I thought Colin Firth is the only one who can pull off the Darcy character. I thought wrong. Matthew McFadyen pwned the part. Every little twitch he makes with those facial muscles, reminds me of great acting.
Robert Pattinson in Twilight
2. Edward Cullen
to Bella – “I leave you alone for two minutes and the wolves descend.”
I’m really tempted to write “need I say more?” but that would go with the assumption that every living , breathing female on earth is attracted to him. My 83-year old grandma isn’t because she hasn’t read the book nor watched the movie. Well, if she did…
Lee Min Ho in Boys Over Flowers
1. Gu Jun Pyo
to Jan Di – “You’re like a stain that I want to erase.”
He’s number 1 not because he’s the best but because he’s the latest addition to my multitude of sins. Hahaha!
I won’t be too preachy about it but take handsome, uber-rich, honest-to-a-fault, charming, infamous and semi-obnoxious away from the equation and you’ll get men who love their heroines with stalker-ish delight.
That was my top five. What’s yours?
