Narnian Men Make Empire’s ‘100 Sexiest’ List

Posted October 19, 2009 10:44 pm by fantasia_kitty

EmpireOnline has listed the 100 Sexiest Movie Stars of all time on their website. Two of Narnia’s leading men have made that list: Ben Barnes coming in at #38 (here) and James McAvoy at #9 (here). Just as a side warning, if you read the full list, there is a lot of bad language to be aware of. Thanks to 220ChrisTian re:AslansCountry.com for the heads-up!

    Hahahahahahahahah.

    Go Narnia?

  • Starlily says:

    Um, I guess that’s good? Although I think all these "sexiest men" lists are kind of dumb. Ben and James are handsome, though.

  • The Bulgy Bear says:

    Wow, Viggo Mortensen (Aragorn) is 13th.

  • Narniamiss says:

    Maybe this is just my..um..own opinion, but I don’t think Ben should have made it at all. Haha, I am probably going to get like a ton of hate comments back now. I just don’t think he is that good looking. πŸ˜€

  • Narnianerd says:

    Ok… This Is kinda… like… good I guess?

  • Lucy Took says:

    Is this a good thing? Not sure I want Narnia know as well…that.

    And Ben Barnes? Come on! If you’re going to stoup so low as to have a list,couldn’t you put hundsomer guys one it?

    • JadistarkilleR says:

      well Rob Pattinson is #2…… yeah, you’re right. that definitely proves thats this is a lousy list.

      • libby says:

        he is NOT very good looking to me. -_-

      • JadistarkilleR says:

        hence why its a lousy list πŸ˜‰

        with all due respects to Mr Pattinson, he has looks, but no match to rival the likes of Depp, Bale, Pitt or Jackman. and it takes more than a truckloads of screaming girls to be a powerplayer the likes of RDJ, Rickman and the other gents already mentioned. what Pattinson has is ridiculous current popularity which almost always equals to more $$$$$ (which for the studios, is all that matters). i wish i could say that he has talent that makes up for his somewhat average looks– the way (truthfully) McAvoy is– but he’s short on that also.

        i’m not saying that Pattinson doesnt belong to the list, his immense popularity is proof alone that he should figure in there. but he doesnt really deserve to place that highly, at spot #2, or anywhere on the top 10 even (and to be fair, neither should McAvoy be at #9 either). i always thought that the top 10 belongs to the powerplayers, and the next 10 belongs to the most promising up and comers. Pattinson is a promising up and comer, but so is Ben Barnes and James McAvoy.

      • AravisTarkheena says:

        ha ha nice one ^^ i like you

    • Narnia Is My Life says:

      I totally agree with you about Ben! But what about Skandar I mean I thought most people were nuts about him on here and nobody’s mention him:(
      Oh and JadistarkilleR i also agree with you on Rob Pattinson!
      P.S i LOVE Lloyd Daniels!!!

      • Silver the Wanderer says:

        Maybe Skander isn’t on there because technically he’s not an adult yet…I didn’t look at the rest of the list, so then again, I might be wrong.

      • 220chrisTian says:

        Silver: Skandar turned 18 on September 5 this year. So he’s now an adult. πŸ˜‰

      • WillMoseleyandSkandarcrush! says:

        Skandar is NOT sexy! Don’t ever say that again! And i don’t like these contests about "sexy" stuff. Especially on a site that I love to go to. If you’re like me, you’d start gagging and asking God to help this world get into a cleaner godlier place. I am RELLY upset with any christian here who thinks this is good news. I wish this were a chritain narnia site. so this would be a much better Narniaweb. If any Christian is reading this, please pray with me about the world becoming a more better place like Jesus. This is really disturbing.

      • 220chrisTian says:

        WillMaSc: I agree with you. These are people, not objects for anyone’s lust. But no one said Skandar was "sexy." So I’m not sure where this is coming from. Btw, why the username? πŸ˜‰

      • WillMoseleyandSkandarcrush! says:

        200chrisTain, read Nanria is My life’s comment that I just commented on. She(or he) said that Skandar should’ve been on the list. And my name? Well(laughs)! I obviously have a crush on them πŸ™‚ !!
        But don’t take me wrong! I am not one of those girls who like to talk about how sexy they are and other weird stuff like that. I’m just trying to prove to the world that they are hot.

      • WillMoseleyandSkandarcrush! says:

        Well, she(or he) didn’t say he should’ve been on the list. Sorry, my apologizies.But everyone is saying, "what about Skandar? What about William?" That sort of things. Sorry, Narnia is my Life. I mistook you for saying something. Do apologize!

      • JadistarkilleR says:

        give Skandar some time, he *just* turned 18 after all. also, these may be trivial lists, but they do reflect the public’s consciousness about an actor and the projects they are involved in, not just that they’re good looking. if Skandar is really gonna be serious about his career– say the way Ben is serious about his– give it a few years and Skandar will be on the lists like these. i can (almost) guarantee it πŸ˜‰

      • Queen Susan says:

        WillMaSc:
        Hm, very interesting. You just stated that you weren’t the type of girl who talked about how "sexy" Will and Skandar were… and then right after that you say you want to prove how "hot they are".
        In my opinion, "hot" and "sexy" are pretty much the same.

        Anyways. I couldn’t care less about this article. Pretty dumb in my opinion. :p

      • Bookwyrm says:

        Could you explain how you can say this list is bad and shows how "horrible" the world is, but calling Will and Skandar hot and talking about crushing on them is different? "Hot" and "Sexy" mean the exact same thing.

      • AravisTarkheena says:

        wow williammosleyandskandarcrush thats the last thingI expected from you.

      • Fire Fairy says:

        WilliamMoselyandSkandarCrush, I feel the same way. I mean, what is this world coming to? Especially when people are more concerned with how the actors look and how lustful they make them feel, rather than being concerned about how talented they actually are!

        BTW, I think it’s quite hilarious that we’ve been so starved for news that when we do get some we end up discussing the exact definition of "sexy" and "hot"…

      • Me Sa U Sa says:

        WOW! Good Debate. But, I also agree about how stupid is it to have the *sexy* list. it is absolute down right p-a-t-h-e-t-i-c

      • Narnia Is My Life says:

        Wow I didn’t think by posting that comment it would make such a fuss!
        I’m really sorry if anyone is offended by it and I totally agree with WillMoseleyandSkandarcrush about the whole β€œsexy” thing I mean it’s not that important news and for kids under 9 I don’t think it is suitable but oh well!
        Again I’m really sorry but it is kind of funny that because I said one thing over 16 people have posted about it!
        From NarinaIsMyLife
        P.S I’m a girl!!

      • Narniamiss says:

        I have to agree, I think saying someone is "hot" is pretty much the same as sexy. Did you really mean good looking? I think that is an ok way of saying you like someone’s looks. πŸ™‚

      • The Voice of Truth says:

        Sorry to dissapoint you and all, but sexy IS hot. have you heard of words that mean the same think (can’t remember the long word. Maybe synonyms?) Well, that is what hot and sexy are. I would side with you, but that sort of bothers me when you say that (okay…it bothers me a lot.) I’m just stating my opinion, and am not trying to be mean, please don’t take it as an attack.

      • "Hot"and"Sexy"areNOTthesame!!!!!!!! says:

        Hot and Sexy r NOT the same. I repeat: NOT the same. I’m serious. They have two different meanings. Hot means: good-looking
        Sexy: well. I’m not even going to try to explain. I agree with WillMoseleyandSkandarcrush.

      • Voice Of Truth says:

        Hot and Sexy are the same!
        Wow, this is a lame debate. And on Narnia web it’s funny we’re debating about THIS!
        Look them up in the websters Dictionary! I shall settle this once and for all!
        "Hot- a reletively high temperature"… oops, wrong context. Hot: Oh my! "HoT- sexually( I am NOT going to put the rest in hear!) also: sexy." They use the word sexy. Look if you don’t beleive me. there. I believe we’re done. πŸ™‚

      • Bookwyrm says:

        I checked Urban Dictionary to see if someone revised the modern English language while I wasn’t paying attention. Guess what! "Hot" and "sexy" still mean the same thing. πŸ˜›

    • Starlily says:

      I think whether someone is good-looking or not is a matter of opinion. And I also think that "sexy" is a bad way to describe someone. It’s just my opinion, but why can’t they use a different word? Oh well.

      • 220chrisTian says:

        "I also think that ‘sexy’ is a bad way to describe someone. It’s just my opinion, but why can’t they use a different word?" … AMEN! πŸ™

      • Lucy Took says:

        I agree. I’ll admit if a guy is good looking,I’ll say the same about girls too. But I don’t like to think of them as…sexy. It just sounds wrong and shows ether bad training and/or perverted thinking. Not what I want to be.

      • Fire Fairy says:

        I think it’s rather hilarious that we’ve been so starved for news that when we do get some we end up talking about the exact definition of "sexy"…

      • NarniaLuver4Ever says:

        Haha! I agree Fire Fairy.

  • Peepicheep says:

    Ha ha ha very funny! πŸ˜€

  • Meg Ellen says:

    for me Ben is the best ever he should have been first and rob pattinson is rubbish (sorry for that but its true) ben should have been first!

  • fnafa4ever says:

    Fangirl moment: YAY JAMES MCAVOY!!!!!!
    Back to normal: That’s cool, maybe this will help boost ratings for vdt?

  • Narnia Lover says:

    This may stupid, but who’s James McAvoy? πŸ™‚ I haven’t heard his name before. Is that bad? And I don’t know if I should think this news is good, bad, or neather! πŸ™‚

  • Weapon Master says:

    Quite a selection. Some of my favorites made it.

  • Silver the Wanderer says:

    Ahahahahaha xDDD 100 Sexiest Men list? Wow.

  • Aravis Tarkheena says:

    Why not Will Mosley and Skandar keynes? LOL just kidding.But they are list worthy^^LOL

  • Lady Meriwen says:

    Haha. Lists like these are always so subjective (not to mention silly)…but the fangirl side of me thinks it’s pretty cool that Ben and Viggo are both on it.

  • LucyReepicheep4β™₯(used to be celtic13 and Narnian Jesus Freak) says:

    uh, is that good, or not? I’m not sure.
    I β™₯ James and Ben, though.
    But Skander should’ve totaly been on that list! And Will!
    Just curious, since I’m not allowed on sites like that, who is #1? And is Mark Hammil or Harison Ford or Hayden Christensen on the list?(I β™₯ star wars ;))

    • JadistarkilleR says:

      Johnny Depp is #1 on the sexiest list for men, Megan Fox is #1 for the women’s list.

      and Star Wars fans have much to rejoice, since the list also has Harrison Ford, Ewan McGregor, Natalie Portman and Kiera Knightley ranking in the top 100.

      • NarniaLuver4Ever says:

        Man, Hayden Christensen should have totally been on that list, he is gorgeous!

      • JadistarkilleR says:

        indeed, but Hayden needs to diversify his roles, get a bit more high profile work and not just indy/ ensemble ones. unfortunately lists like these arent just for aesthetics, truth to be told its a powerplay list. notice how everybody in the top 10 are hollywood power players with clout, nevermind the fact that they’re not really that good looking. thats the reality of it. James Franco is no more good looking or more talented than Hayden, yet he’s on the list. thts because James has had a lucky streak of films, if not some really distinguishable indies, they’re tantalizing Oscar baits.

      • Me Sa U Sa says:

        Jonny DEPP!!! you got to be kidding me. He has turned in to a total jerk. anyway. WHOOOOOOOOHHHHHOOOOOO I love star wars movie.

      • The Voice of Truth says:

        lollollol. Who would’ve thought on narnia web we’d be discussing good looking men who have NO RELATION TO NARNIA WHATSOEVER. Hint, hint. Please stop.

      • The Voice of Truth says:

        CORRECTION: My last post was based on on a skim of the posts. Please ignore it and if possible delete it.

      • aravistarkheena says:

        WHO CARES ABOUT JOHNNY DEPP?!?!? I certainly don’t. You know, he’s really not that cute. Bit I never really look at those lists. Thakns narniaweb for tellin us bout the language stuff. Really appreciate it.

  • Mark Friedrich says:

    Why is Narniaweb posting this, STOP!

  • NarniaLuver4Ever says:

    What is with all these people posting the question "Is this good?" Heck, yeah, this is good. This is really good publicity for Narnia, and honestly just chill with the whole "sexy" thing. I mean they’re are attractive and they’re in the acting business so we can’t expect them not to be noticed. And just a side note: Jame Mcavoy is freaking amazing!!!

  • Aslan's my homeboy says:

    Nice πŸ™‚ But wut about Skandy? Lol

  • libby says:

    those lists are stupid o.0

  • The Great and Fearless Pug says:

    So, what’s the point of this anyway? Most of those guys don’t even look that great anyway.

  • checkers says:

    okay that’s…odd. Not sure what reaction I should have to that…erm….aaaawkwaaaaard…

  • RoseRed says:

    azmfnbf

  • RoseRed says:

    ahh! that comment was an accident sorry, how do I delete it? :s

  • greenbird37 says:

    I still would have chose Will and Skandar, but we had no say in it did we? Congrats to Ben and James!!

  • rilian4evr says:

    ugh how is this news. if i had to agree with anybody i’d vote for james mcavoy, but i’m not that type of girl :p

  • Caspian's Princess says:

    Oh please people GET A LIFE!! What is so disturbing about this list?!?! It’s fun!! And two of my favorite actors are on it…Ben Barnes AND James McAvoy…woooho!!! It is "Narnia related" after all, it’s just a fun post!! GET OVER IT!!

    • Lucy Took says:

      No,don’t you get it? There’s so little real news that we’re all starved for something other than the MLG.

      And there is the moral aspect also…

    • Fire Fairy says:

      Sorry if I’ve offended anybody with my pessimistic attitude. I just have a hard time seeing why we should care about who’s "sexy" and who’s not. I’ve always preferred to base my opinion off the talent of the actor, not on how they look. But still, I think it’s rather funny that so many people like certain actors because they look "hot", even if they have no acting talent whatsoever. (Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying none of these actors have talent. In fact, most of them are probably excellent actors. I just think we should focus on acting talent rather than looks).

    • Voice Of Truth says:

      "oh please people GET A LIFE! These things are fun!"
      YOU may think it is. You stated your opinion, so I hope you won’t mind when I state mine and say these lists are absolutely ridiculous. I’m not saying it’s particarally BAD for Narnia, I’ve been wanting news for a long time on the movie, but this… I don’t see how it’s ‘fun’, could you tell me why you think so? I don’t really understand why they are.
      Oh, and you can have your own opinion, but anyone (and I empathsize anyone) would know why some of us don’t like this. i mean, it’s all over the page on the web you’re staring at right now. The moral aspect is horrible, I am a Christain and I really don’t think these lists are right.

      • LucyReepicheep4β™₯(used to be celtic13 and Narnian Jesus Freak) says:

        I agree, totally!
        And if anyone read my post where I said I wasn’t sure if this was good or bad, I changed my mind. It’s RIDUCULAS and personly, I think it’s kinda gross. πŸ˜›

    • Voice Of Truth says:

      Oh, and by the way, I do have a life.

      • Fire Fairy says:

        So do I.

        Why don’t we just drop this instead of getting down each other’s throats? Obviously you either like it or you don’t. There’s no point in getting after other people who think the opposite of what you do. (And I’m not getting after you, Voice of Truth. I think we’ve all, including me, been very touchy about this entire subject).

  • Lucy&Reepicheep says:

    Well even though these contests are pretty dumb they should at least put good looking guys Robert Pattinson is not good looking, and Zac Efron looks like a donkey in my opinion. So this is not narnia news,

    • 220chrisTian says:

      It IS Narnia-related news. Why? Both current and former Narnia cast members are in the list! But being Narnia-related is why it appears in "Word on the street" instead of "Narnia movie news." πŸ˜‰

  • Reepicheep775 says:

    HAHAHAHAHA
    Oh man, Mr. Tumnus on the 100 sexiest list. That’s so funny/weird.

  • Abrianna Raybrock says:

    oh la la thats great and i like the movies better than the books and i love reading and thats also sad because im a writer

  • pselpevensie says:

    i guess thats pretty cool. but i just have one question… WHY ISN’T WILLIAM MOSELEY ON THE LIST???

  • NarniaLove says:

    Haha..what about William and Skandar? πŸ™‚

  • loverforBen says:

    GO BEN!

  • ChristProclamer says:

    Wow. I never thought I’d find somethng like this here…
    Well, congratulations I guess to James and Ben. I’ll refrain from any fangurly comments on who should’ve made what and who’s hottest, because it doesn’t really matter. But seriously I think the real award should go to our faithful NarniaWebbers, who search out EVERY BIT of slightly Narnia related information and post it regardless of all the haters they’ll get. Thanks, guys. This and it’s comments has been a most amusing read. *snicker*

  • Narnianerd says:

    Ok… Yeah this just goes to show how screwed up this world is! How do you think you’d feel if one day you woke up and found out that you were on the "100 SEXYIST WOMEN LIST!!!!!" yes Booky the 5 exlamation marks are a sign of an insane mind CAUSE I APPARENTLY ARE INSANE! *Ramble* of course you weirdos who worship actors wish you were on that list CREEPERS!
    *this post is exlusive property of Little Joe, AKA: Narnianerd*
    GOOD NIGHT WORLD!

    • Narnia Lover says:

      I have to agree that the list is stupid! I may like Ben but that doesn’t mean I think he should be on this list! I’m Chrishtion! We don’t like these types of things! And I would feel descusted if I was on the "100 Sexyist List"! I think it’s tarible to rate people like that! I don’t think such a list sould ever be!

  • ASLAN'S CHILD says:

    go ben and james.but i would have liked more if skandar and will would’ve madeit lol.im more of a skandar type of girl.if u know what i mean.lol

  • Narnianerd says:
