    I disagree w glamour. Jamie Dornan is the sexiest. Aiden is cute but Jamie has a smoky sexy look in his eye that turns Ur blood to water. He can make u melt.


    Finally the right choice! Aidan Turner is the complete package and deserves to be No 1. Aidan is stunningly handsome, it is his warm, happy, funny, flirtatious, generous, charming personality that makes him utterly appealing and sexy. His acting skills are incomparable, he works hard and his gratitude and humility are disarming.
