"It is observed that the redhaired of both sexes are more libidinous and mischievous than the rest, whom yet they much exceed in strength and activity" — Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels.

Screen werewolves are always hot. Buffy's resident lycanthrope can't quite match the two Being Human werewolves, but you know that you still totally would.

Kevin was kind of a pasty piece when he first came to our attention in Trainspotting. But as age, global fame, and a role in Grey's Anatomy set on, he became ruggedly irresistible. A lot of that has to do with the dimples.

This guy was edible enough when he was in EastEnders. Now he's in True Blood as a vampire, the sexiest beings in the supernatural world, so things have just gone through the roof.

If you're the guidance counsellor to the glee club, it follows that you're going to be wholesome and probably adorable. It doesn't necessarily follow that you'll be this timelessly fit.

Not only did Isla successfully graduate from Home and Away into an actual Hollywood acting career, she agreed to marry Sacha Baron Cohen. Clearly, sense of humour really does go a long way.

10. Gillian Anderson

She might be committing slow treachery to the ginger cause with those highlights, but Gillian's striking, piercing beauty only becomes more powerful with age. Not just because her detective character in The Fall is a manipulative sexual predator, although that does help.

8. Amy Adams

This combination of of old Hollywood beauty and indie charisma is just impossibly alluring. In the words of the great Right Said Fred, we'll explain, she's our Lois Lane.

7. Eddie Redmayne

We dreamed a dream in time gone by. It involved wrapping Eddie up in a blanket and telling him it didn't matter that his French revolutionary attempt totally failed and giving him a nice cuddle. And then just totally hitting that. Bring him home!

4. Julianne Moore


Julianne pulls of quite intimidatingly commanding beauty while looking like she'd just be totally cool to hang out with. Some feat. And at 52, she still looks too young to even really qualify as MILF.

3. Josh Homme

Because you wouldn't think twice about letting him do 'alternative' stuff to you. Plus his band is incredible, although somebody should have a word that the shaved head isn't really working.

Here is the ideal combination of rugged hotness and good English breeding. It's all about the tortured smoulder. The jawline. The shirtless scenes. The scrubbing up in a tux. Nurse, the smelling salts!
