Top Five Most Romantic (and Sexy) Leading Men In the Movies
Hi everyone! With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, people turn to all things romantic, and that includes romantic movies. I don’t know about any of you, but when I think of romantic movies, I always think of the sexy leading men. These guys charge onto the silver screen and sweep the heroine off her feet. They sweep *us* off our feet as well. So for this blog, I thought I’d list my top five most romantic leading men. Do you agree with me? Let’s see…
#5 – Patrick Swayze – Dirty Dancing This was a tough call for me, since I loved him in “Ghost” too, but since Dirty Dancing ended up on a more upbeat note, I went with that. ;)
Favorite Line – “Nobody Leaves Baby in the Corner”
He’s the tough yet sexy dancer who loves Baby for who she is and gives her the self-confidence to stand up for what she believes in. What’s not to like?
#4 – Collin Firth – Bridget Jones’ Diary
Favorite Line – “No, I like you very much. Just as you are.”
He’s shy, he’s a little self-deprecating, and he had me as soon as I saw him in that ridiculous Christmas sweater.
#3 – Richard Gere – Pretty Woman
Favorite line – "You and I are such similar creatures Vivian. We both screw people for money”
A rich businessman sweeps a girl off her feet and gives her everything she desires? Sign me up!
#2 – Humphrey Bogart - Cassablanca
Favorite Line – “Here’s looking at You, kid.”
Perhaps my favorite movie of all time. Who doesn’t fall in love with Ricky and his bar? It’s so romantic, so tragic, so beautiful. Truly a classic.
#1 – Michael Douglas – Romancing the Stone
Favorite line – “You’re the best time I’ve ever had.”
Hey – I’m a romance author, how could this NOT make the top of the list? I think almost every romance author points to this movie as one of their favorites. Perhaps we all have a little Kathleen Turner in us, and we all hope that Michael Douglas will come in and sweep us off our feet. ;)
So there you have it – my favorite top five romantic movies. Do you agree? Is there a movie I left off the list? Tell me about it!
