Normally this post would have come out right after the list was announced as it did last year. However, this has been a crazy busy Summer and I just spent 2.5 weeks in New York helping to take care of my two nieces. In short, I’ve had very little free time.
Better late than never, right?
Maxim recently came out with their list of the 100 hottest women in the world and, like last year, I felt it was my duty to whittle the list down to the most nerd-worthy. What I call the Lucky 13.
Let me tell you, writing this blog is really tough sometimes.
For the sake of fresh blood, I’m not putting any repeats in my 13. So if they were on the list last year they’re going to have to settle for an honorable mention. Those delectable women include: Christina Hendricks, Zoe Saldana, Ashley Greene, Emma Watson, Scarlett Johanson, Emma Stone, Olivia Wilde, and Olivia Munn. Believe me, it is painful for me to leave them off this list but I don’t want to list the same people over and over again every year. Where would the fun be in that?
Another special mention goes to Stephen Colbert #69 (of course)…as far as I know, the only man to ever find himself on this list.
Note: the order they are presented in was Maxim’s decision, not mine. So don’t go blaming me if the ones you like are further down the totem pole.
My #13 – Their #97. Kat Dennings
She tasered my boyfr – I mean Thor and was totally unapologetic about it. That takes balls. Oh, and she’s got a wicked sense of humor and the comedic timing to back it up.
My #12 – Their #94. Alexandra Breckinridge
My #11 – Their #80. Stana Katic
My #10 – Their #76. Teresa Palmer
My #9 – Their #67. Rebecca Mader
My #8 – Their #65. Cobie Smulders
It takes an amazing woman to hold her own in a room full of superheroes and master spies. Cobie survived an implosion and an explosion and came up swinging. Well done, Agent Hill, well done.
My #7 – Their #61. Kristen Bell
I’m a little biased when it comes to Miss Bell. She graduated from the same little Catholic High School in Michigan that my Dad attended. She always struck me as the nerdy type and I sympathized greatly with her Fanboys character.
My #6 – Their #35. Yvonne Strahovski
She couldn’t resist the lure of the nerd she was protecting. I told you there was hope for nerds everywhere.
My #5 – Their #22. Kaley Cuoco
Aaaaand another hot chick attracted to the herd of nerd. Kaley and Yvonne even kind of look alike. Think we can convince them to be the blonde bread in a nerd sandwich?
My #4 – Their #16. Charlize Theron
My #3 – Their #12. Kate Beckinsale
My #2 – Their #10. Adrianne Palicki
She gave birth to the second coming of Christ, became a Real American Hero and was Wonder Woman for about 2 minutes. Even though the costume sucked I’m still kind of upset that whole WW thing didn’t pan out.
My #1 – Their #6. Jennifer Lawrence
Until next year, this is HNG signing off.
