What do Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Josh Duhamel and Bradley Cooper all have in common? If you said they all look amazing without their shirts on, I would agree with you, however an alternative answer would be they have all been leading actors in romantic movies. What would women all over the world be doing if we didn’t have these leading men to educate us on the finer points of male seduction.
Matthew has been taking his shirt off for us all since the late 1990’s in such hit movies as Contact (1997), The Wedding Planner (2001), How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) and Magic Mike (2012). Matthew was even named People Magazines “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2005, what a great magazine that was 😉 Over the past 2 years Matt has not made any romantic movies, however I am sure I am not alone when I say I hope he returns to romantic comedies soon.
The first movie I watched Channing in was a romantic dance film called “Step Up” (2006). He later married his co-star Jenna Dewan and together they have a beautiful little girl. Since 2006 Channing has appeared in a few commercially successful romantic films such as Dear John (2010), The Vow (2012) and the romantic/sci-fi movie Jupiter Ascending (2015). He is also known for taking his shirt off and busting a few sexy moves (with Matthew) in the movie that was based on Channing’s earlier life as a stripper – Magic Mike (2012).
Josh, oohhh Josh -swoon- even though he didn’t play a romantic role in the Transformers film series, we were all still introduced to this sexy Army Captain running across the world to save humanity from the evil Decepticons. Josh has starred in such romantic comedy films as When in Rome (2010), Life as We Know It (I cried so much in this movie :(…. (2010) and Safe Haven (2013)…omg, the ending of this movie was a real tear jerker!!! He has been a tad quiet over the past couple of years, returning to his tv roots in such shows as Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Battle Creek. Hopefully he will remove his shirt and grace the big screen again soon.
Now while I appreciate the men listed above, there is one sexy blue eyed devil that has been doing very well in the box office over the past couple of years. Nominated for four Academy Awards (3 for acting and 1 for producing) as well as a Tony Award, this sexy dark haired boy from Philadelphia was also named the “Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine in 2011. No surprise there! Bradley Charles Cooper….hmm…imagine screaming that from your bedroom.
Bradley maybe best known for helping his mates remember what they got up to in The Hangover I, II and III and for his oscar nominated performance in American Sniper, but this gorgeous all round American guy has also graced our screens playing some very loveable characters. He played the role of Sack (opposite Rachel McAdams) in the hit movie Wedding Crashers (2005), Demo (with Matthew McConaughey) in Failure to Launch (2006), Pat in Silver Linings Playbook (2012) and this winter he will be playing the role of Brian in this years romantic beachside movie Aloha. Lets just hope we get to see him take his shirt off again…A girl can only hope.
As of the 4th of June, check out your nearest cinema for movie session times. Village Cinemas have a special Flicks With The Chicks screening. Arrange a babysitter, make dinner reservations and after an intimate dinner for two, head to your local cinema and be entertained by Bradley Cooper’s new romantic movie Aloha.
