5) Cary Elwes (Westley)
The fact The Princess Bride is a satire went completely over my 12 year old head, and instead planted some rather unfortunate expectations of what my true love should wear on a regular basis (further encouraged by Antonio Banderas in The Mask of Zorro, although I was old enough to know better by then).
Not to mention the sword-fighting skills he should have, immunity to poison and penchant for almost hitting me, but masterfully restraining himself. Somehow I still love this movie, terrible messages and all.
4) Michael Schoeffling (Jake Ryan)
In a magical high school universe never seen on earth, the hottest guy ever is sweet, kind and says things like "maybe I'm looking for more than a party" while explaining why he's no longer interested in his busty blonde homecoming queen. Yeah, right. Sigh...at least we can dream.
I don't get this one unless I watch Willow again. And then I do. Oh yes, I do.
2) Luke Perry (Dylan)
Wow Jake, your evil twin is hot too! Nothing like a little emotional instability to really amp up the sexiness.
1) Tom Cruise (Maverick, Joseph, every lead he's ever played)
Back before he revealed his craziness to the world, Tom Cruise was one hot tamale. He picked some great roles and sizzled his way through them, from Top Gun and Risky Business to Far and Away (still my favourite) and Mission Impossible. Why couldn't he keep his mouth shut and leave us to our fantasies?
Not that craziness would necessarily turn me off (see above). Boring, preachy craziness does.
Whew - now I need to go take a cold shower. Right after I watch some of these movies again.
