Empire Magazine and the Sexy Men and Women of Harry Potter


Oct 15, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Empire Magazine has released their list of 100 Sexiest Movie Stars which includes several cast members of the Harry Potter films. Ladies first as beautiful Helena Bonham Carter (“possessed of a delightful earthy sexiness.”) is ranked at number nine, with beautiful Emma Watson (“an extremely poised, porcelain-fine beauty and something of a fashion icon.”) takes the number three spot.

As for the gentlemen, the handsome Dan Radcliffe (“he’s a bloody wizard, and a really good one at that, with a couple of potions that’ll guarantee you fancy him.”) was marked at number 37. This editor appreciated remarks for the wonderful Jason Isaacs (“he’s devastatingly charming and handsome. Seriously, show us someone who doesn’t fancy him, and we’ll show you a corpse”) who was listed at number 24 (“Is it wrong that we fancied him as both Lucius Malfoy and Captain Hook in Peter Pan (2003)?”). Snape fans will appreciate that actor Alan Rickman was listed at the number eight spot (“Sure, everyone loves a bad(ish) boy, but Rickman’s rogues’ gallery is
united by the fact that they’re all strangely, unjustifiably sexy. Yes,
even greasy-haired Snape.”) Finally, the ever dazzling Hufflepuff great himself, Robert Pattinson, is listed at the number two spot (” a posh accent, musical ability and that enormous haystack on his head means half the teenage world adores him.”)

Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Wow! Congrats to Emma, Dan, Alan (:DDDD) and Jason! They deserve it (:Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Yay Alan Rickman! Snape is indeed sexy, lol.Avatar Imagegaminette says: I don't like these kinds of lists. And since they left off Tom Felton, I like this one even less. hmph.Avatar ImageTassana Burrfoot says: They should have put Mr. Isaacs higher. Waaaayyyy higher. But, I can't complain too much about the rest.Avatar ImageLeslie33 says: Alright Alan Rickman is the 8th Sexiest Actor. He's such a wonderful Actor and makes Snape down right sexy with his voice and mannerisms.Avatar Imagehermione.isabella says: Well done to the Harry Potter cast. Mostly to Emma Watson, she shows that you can do anything if you put your mind to it, even things that you never thought of. LOL. Also well done to Robert Pattison for getting number 2. Does anyine know who got 1st?Avatar ImageFigment says: They are all sexy in their own way, congrats to the Harry Potter alumni that made the list.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: YAY! Alan Rickman is super sexy! I love Jason too! Glad that Helena and Emma are being noticed too. :)Avatar Imagesairah says: Cedric and Bellatriz really were the sexiest actors!Avatar Imagesairah says: Cedric and Bellatrix were the sexiest Harry Potter actors in my opinion.Avatar ImageBrosia23 says: I am kind of angry that Robert is so high up there. He is only considered so hot because of Twilight mania. But, Snape and Emma and Lucius, that is great. Good job!Avatar ImageBrosia23 says: I hate that Robert is so far up the list, because he is only there because of Twilight mania. But I am glad that Emma, Snape and Lucius are on the list. That is good enough to me.Avatar ImageGiant Fairy says: nox avis.....He played Captain HOOK in that Peter Pan Movie! And to the list...de gustibus non est disputandum, you can t discuss taste. Personally I d run away from a guy like Pattinson, and Helena BC who plays a wonderfully weird Bellatrix has Sexappeal, even though she is not "tall and with heavy lidded eyes". And Jason, well he is moist sexy! But the thing I love on that list is that a guy who is grandfather age is so high up! Makes the old Fairy hope that age will be kind to her,tooAvatar ImageCatherine says: Alan go in the top ten!!! yeah!!! and so did emma and my fellow puff! Avatar ImageHmrc5 says: For me thay all should be at the first 5 places! Where is Ruppert!?Avatar ImageJane_Potter says: Yeah Emma is 3rd and Kristen Stewart is 7th. That means that anyone would choose Hermione over Bella!!!!Avatar ImageNicci Weasley says: Rupert is at the top of my list!!Avatar ImageLeeann says: That's awesome! I love them all =)Avatar Imagesiena says: Where on earth is Tom Felton ??? They must be blind, those "Empire" editors ... love Alan Rickman in the top ten though ... but seriously, Tom Felton should be among the top three !!Avatar Imagejeannemcl says: Pardon if my age is showing, but, while I think Daniel is cute and adorable, Pattinson doesn't belong on the list at all. For me. He's just a "pretty boy." Jason Isaacs is a definite yes though! Alan Rickman? Maybe.Avatar Imagemissdelbridge says: Erm.. where is Tom Felton?! :( But yay for Emma, Alan and Helena (Y)Avatar ImageFifi says: Where's Bonnie? And poor Rupert gets left out AGAIN!!! Anyway, well done Emma (she totally deserves it), Helena, Dan, Jason, Alan and all the rest! : DAvatar Imagesiena says: hermione.isabella: Johnny Depp is No 1Avatar ImageLadySidi says: Well done!

(OH, and Rupert!!!!) ;PAvatar ImageWON_TWO says: Another silly list...Avatar ImageCarol Carvalho says: Oh my... I don't who was writing the comments on the side of each picture,but Dan's description is downright stupid. I'm sorry... those ranks are dumb. Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: Emma number 3 woot, she is so beautifal and talented, knew she would be high... Avatar Imagealpaca-girl says: Go Emma!!! :o)Avatar ImageRowling Stones says: awesome good choices but what about tom felton!Avatar ImageJessSnape says: So Gary Oldman is missing from this list:( LOVE SIRIUS... and he was the sexiest vampire ever (Rob can't touch him there... nor can any other!!Avatar ImageBeckster235 says: goo emma! love her! poor rupert hahaAvatar ImageLuce_depp says: woo, Alan rickman and Jason Issacs made it..how awesome!Avatar Imagepensive says: Seeing that Emma and Pattinson are so high on the top ten, I would have expected that Dan would be on the top ten too. But hey, as long as he's there. Congrats to all you beautiful people!Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: CONGRATS! :)Avatar Imagenetsrikb says: ah jason isaacs is prettyyyyy. I ship sueson! lolAvatar Imagealegria35 says: it's a pity Dan is short, otherwise, he's the perfect sex symbol. He's actually more handsome than Robert, but as Dan admitted it, he lacks height himself... so WTG Robert.Avatar Imagealegria35 says: yeah, and where is Rupert?Avatar Imagesidnandragin says: I am sad that Bonnie wasnt on the list :-(Avatar ImageParkinsonpansy says: Where is Tom and rupert??!?! Avatar ImageRsheppard says: Go Alan, Dan, Jason, Emma, Rob and HBC!!! But why aren't Tom Felton and Rupert Grint on this list? Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: Yeah i am glad they put him as Hufflepuff and not Edward. Yeah were is Ruppert? Avatar ImageBrosia23 says: I am angry that Robert is so high on the list, that they only reason people think he is so hot is because of the Twilight mania going around. I am happy that Emma, Snape and Lucius where on it, that is a nice surprise.Avatar Imagenox avis says: Jason Isaacs, captain cook?? never knew that. he's a bloody wizard, and a really good one at that, with a couple of potions that'll guarantee you fancy him. LOLAvatar Imagenox avis says: Jason Isaacs, captain cook?? never knew that. he's a bloody wizard, and a really good one at that, with a couple of potions that'll guarantee you fancy him. LOLAvatar Imagemjkalldaway says: COOL! Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: COOL! Avatar Imageblue4t says: They can put Dan on the list, but not Rupert? How dare they! Avatar ImageDobbyWinkyKreacher says: the list should be HP only :-)) most liked etc ...(yeesh, keep 'sex' out of it). a most liked list guarantees all our fave's will be on there. They didn't add Hagrid, Dumbledore, Lupin, Sirius, Flitwick, McGonagall, etcAvatar ImageLEW says: Excuse while I pull over a settee for a Chris Pine ??swoooooooon??Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Great!!! :)Avatar Imageray.expectopatronum says: Yay emma, dan, alan, helena! they're all so awesome, why not rupert or tom tho??? and rob really isn't that hot without all that makeup(whoever does his makeup in twilight is friggin amazing! they actually make him look pretty good) Avatar Imagesessionka says: Yay for everyone... Especially Jason Isaacs and Alan Rickman!!! I've been a fan of theirs way before Harry Potter (Obviously in the Group Harry Potter Fans that are older :-) )Avatar Imagecghambright says: YAY!! GO EMMA!!! And HELENA!!! They're both so GORGEOUS and so talented! Dan should be way higher up on that list. He's so HOT! I'm serious in love with him. Alan Rickman and Jason Isaccs better be on the list! But I'm really disappointed that Rupert has yet again been left off the list. He's so underrated and it really annoys me! I think he's so SEXY! And that robert guy is a joke. You've got to be kidding me...number 2?! He's not cute at all. he dresses like a bum and he has no personality. I didn't even like him when he was in GOF. Avatar Imagecghambright says: And Gary Oldman should definitely be on there!! AND Ralph Fiennes!! They put all those little teeny boppers on there like Zac Efron and those guys from twilight but they leave off Gary, Ralph, and Rupert. As for the women's list. It's full of so-called actresses who are only famous because they take their clothes off in every film they're in. They have no talent. The only good choices are Emma, Natalie Portman, Drew Barrymore, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Angelina, and Rachel McAdams. Ellen Page should've made the list!Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Dan deserved better than 37!Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: Woo go sexiness!!!Avatar Image-MischiefManaged- says: Alan Rickman as Severus Snape = SEX, with capital letters. ;) And yes, Helena Bonham-Carter is one of the most beautiful women in the showbiz, along with Kate Winslet (who is perhaps the most beautiful present-day actress in my opinion). Jason Isaacs is wonderful and very good-looking, as is Dan, and Emma is very beautiful too. And you can't really say Rob Pattinson wouldn't have something about him. But Alan Rickman...wowzers. He's been sexy ever since Robin Hood, and Snape's role is definitely one of his sexiest roles ever.Avatar Imagespazgirl13 says: I love Helena Bonham Carter shes such a good actressAvatar Imagedaisy bell says: why is Tom Felton not in the list?hmmm...didn't they notice how hot Tom Felton is??Avatar Imagepotterforpresident says: Yay for everyone! :)Avatar Imagemaimiaa says: no rupert? :[ it's cool. hooray for the rest!Avatar ImageCatherine says: *got into ....sorryAvatar ImageRossonera says: I confess I don't agree with Dan and Robert being on the list! One thing is being pretty other one is sexy... Well done Prof. Snape and Mr. Malfoy!Avatar ImageSigourney1990 says: Ooh well done everyone! :D :D Shame that some of the other cast mates don't seem to have made it but oh well, we've got some of them in there :) but i'm thoroughly unhappy about how attractive Robert Pattinson looks in that pic D: i was adamant he wasn't all that as Edward Cullen...ohh times change...:)Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: congrats! what about rupert and tom?Avatar Imageginevrapotter07 says: I agree with Emma, Helene, Jason, Alan, and Dan... But where's TOM!??? And ROB Pat is #2!? Actually guys, no offense, but what do people see in him? his ugly beard? xP (I hate beards)Avatar Imageginevrapotter07 says: sorry guys, I like him as Edward. Not as Robert. :)Avatar Imagepfowlerp says: Congrats to all that made the list!!! I'm rather disapointed that Bonnie isn't on the list though:( Avatar Imagealicia00 says: that is relly grate that that got on the chartsAvatar ImageJane_Potter says: For the Men: In my opinion Jensen Ackles should be at least 2nd!!! And where the heck were Ian Sommerhalder, Jared Padalecki, Josh Holloway, Josh Duhamel, Marsall Allman, Jesse McCartney, Tom Felton and Drew Fuller? For The Ladies: Megan Fox shouldn't be first. Rose McGowan, Evangeline Lily, Maggie Grace, Holly Marrie Combs, Alyssa Milano, Shannen Doherty, Emilie De Ravin and Bonnie Wright should be in the list tooAvatar Imagepensive says: Ditto about Jensen Ackles. He's one of the handsomest actors in Hollywood now and one of the sexiest too. He should at least be on the top ten. But I go for Megan being the sexiest. The girl's got old glamour oomph! And Keira Knightley should be on the top ten! She's almost as thin as Emma but why is Hermione on # 3? But kudos to Empire for including old Hollywood stars and even nobodiesAvatar ImageTheWizard says: Yay :D Really great pics! Congrats to all of them :) (and of course Johnney Depp #1 :P )Avatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I <3 alan rickman!!!!!! i'm so glad he got #8 *squeeeeeeeeeee*Avatar Imagewing says: hahahahahahaAvatar Imageashim_gryffindor says: Wow that's fantastic! I knew they'd make it there, especially Emma Watson! Magic RULES HARRY POTTER!!!! Avatar ImageSmitch says: What about Gary Oldman and Rupert Grint? I know, they can't include everyone. At least Rickman is there. Helena, I think, is one of THE best. "Earthy" is accurate.Avatar Imagestenojoz says: Awesome that they all made it on there, but I agree, where is Rupert? He's getting better and better with age and deserves a spot on there as well.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: ooooooooooooh :):):) Emma!!!! Alan!!!! Dan!!!! Rob!!!! But what about Rupert :(Avatar Imagesquibcloakmaker says: Yeah whenever I do my "I heart Snape" Dance its because really...Alan Rickman just rocks! (the dance, by the way, my by best friend's husband joins in on, which is just hilarious!)Avatar Imageblue_rogue says: Where's Kreacher?Avatar Imagemuggle118 says: all my favs were on thereAvatar Imagehumbert0 says: xD What about Katie Leung?Avatar Imageron_lover says: Rupert is left out again! In my opinion, he is so much hotter than Dan! Avatar Imagemjkalldaway says: cool that Pattinson and Carter and Watson were inAvatar ImageDiamondWings says: ILYD!!! For me you are in 1st place!!!Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: and congrats to the other HP stars!! =DAvatar ImageKellyAnn says: oh sue! jason isaacs pic! lol!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Congratulations to everyone who was listed, though I do believe that many of the people they included should have been listed a tad bit higher. ;)Avatar Imageharrygetsme says: well deserved, i must say! except for rupert grint is definitely missing!Avatar Imageashim_gryffindor says: Hang on, Rupert should be there too! The trio has to be there all together, and I think Emma and Dan should have been ranked higher... Well done anyway (i've said that already) and well done to all the other stars too!Avatar ImagevampressISap0tter says: CONGRATS..but im a wee bit disappointed that tom felton isnt there. :)Avatar ImageTeatopatronusesla says: yes i can't believe tom felton isn't there!!!!!!!!!!!! :( and urghh so not true that HALF the teenage world loves robert since half the teenage world would have to be the girls not guys that means 100% of the girls love robert WHICH IS NOT. TRUE. Avatar Imageteam ron says: ok one thing i guess is why is Rupert not on there??? He is sexier then all of them well at least to me!Avatar ImageHBPFan says: Yey for all of them!!Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: Congrats to everyone! what's with Robert? I don't think he should count because he's died (Cedric i mean) and that's not just because i hate Twilight well maybe it is but so what?!!!Avatar ImageBonnie Radcliffe says: I can't believe Rupert is not featured in the list!! O_O He's sexy as hell, that man. Not in a Zac Effron, Robert Pattison way, but in a real man way. Emma is pretty but I think that not as much as to deserve number three. I can't believe Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Kate Winslet are below her. I can't believe Kirsten Stewart is in no 7, either O_O But the most astonishing thing is that Marilyn Monroe is featured in the list but is not at the top!! Out of all the women in that list, Marilyn is the sexiest ever!! =)Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Megan Fox might be beautiful and sexy but Emma is much more talented and this fact is unquestionable!!!! So, Emma should be at the first place!!!! :) Avatar ImageDelilah3136 says: I am so happy for all of these people!!!!!!!!! But where is Tom Felton on this list??? He's the sexiest of all ;)Avatar Imagemakandcheese says: Rupert Grint isnt on this?!?! :O Or Tom Felton and Gary Oldman? Disapointment. But congratulations to everyone else that got on! But really, Rupert Grint should've gotten Robert Pat's spot. *shakes head *Avatar Imagebecmajec says: woohoo the hp cast is sexy as hahaAvatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: I'm betting Sue disagrees with Mr. Isaacs' spot.Avatar ImageJane_Potter says: yay!!!!Avatar ImageNicoleC76 says: Alan Rickman is # 8!!!!! He should be # 1, but I guess I'll settle for 8. ;D I'm happy for all of them, but Robert Pattinson shouldn't really be ranking so high up. Yeah he was hot enough to make me care about his character in GoF(which is about the only reason I would have cared; other than the fact I read the books). He was charming enough for that, but otherwise he fell to background and wasn't considered again until Twilight. As John Green has sucessfully pointed it out, we've made him beautiful.Avatar Imagecghambright says: 6 cast members from Harry Potter made the list. GO HP!!!!! :DAvatar ImageDelilah3136 says: I am so happy for all of these people!!!!!!!!! But where is Tom Felton on this list??? He's the sexiest of all ;)Avatar ImageLivelaughlovepotter says: HEY! I think all of the Harry Potter actors should be up there! Robert Pattinson isn't all that sexy. And that's coming from a teenager herself! HA! You can't just slap a big head of bedhead on a guy and call it sexy. You just can't.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: My goodness...Avatar Imagekendalllovett says: Helena should be number one... just saying. :DAvatar Imagekendalllovett says: Helena should be number one... just saying. :DAvatar ImageSmitch says: Yeah, WHERE is Rupert? If Michael K can get away with calling Prince Harry "Hot Ginge", then Rupert should be on this list. Ew, Prince Harry...lol
