Angelina Jolie, a Hot Commodity, and the Golden Globe

Angelina Jolie has proven to be a remarkably hot item recently. Not only is her every public move carefully scrutinized by the media and the paparazzi, but she has also been the recipient of late of several awards.

Last week she was nominated for a Golden Globe award for best dramatic actress for her performance in A Mighty Heart.

She was also voted the number one sexiest movie star of all time according to the British film magazine Empire. Empire’s list includes both men and women and includes stars from the last 100 years of film.

This is a list of some awfully hot stars, including Marilyn Monroe, who came in 14th, Brad Pitt, 7th, George Clooney, 11th, Halle Berry, 12th, Paul Newman, 19th, Charlize Theron, 29th, Steve McQueen, 42nd, Cary Grant, 48th, Sean Connery, 49th, Clark Gable, 51st, Robert Redford, 53rd, Julia Roberts, 57th, Rita Hayworth, 59th, Lauren Bacall, 71st, Richard Gere, 77th, Sofia Loren, 78th, Warren Beatty, 87th, Elizabeth Taylor, 90th, James Dean, 95th, Brigit Bardot, 98th.

Not on the list were Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman, which is pretty ridiculous. There were many lesser know recent stars ahead of James Dean and Warren Beatty, which indicates that many of the voters were on the younger side. No matter what your age, it is hard to understand how Gerald Butler, who starred in 300 and was voted the 10th sexiest, could come in ahead of James Dean or Robert Redford.

Obviously, the younger set has never seen the films, Rebel without a Cause starring James Dean and Natalie Wood or Barefoot in the Park starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda. If they had, Gerald Butler could never have placed ahead of Redford or Dean regardless of Butler’s abdominal muscles.

And what woman hasn’t drooled at the sight of Clark Gable as Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind?

Angelina Jolie is also being rewarded for her humanitarian nature, which is considerable, having drawn public attention to the plight of the poor and destitute in Africa.

In the video you will see Angelina, along with Brad Pitt, as they attend the premiere of Beowulf.
