What makes a man so hot he is known not just as an actor or a rock star but as a sex symbol? One is tempted to say: a steady taciturn gaze and a square jaw, but Justin Timberlake is anything but flinty. Another assumption might be that sex comes by the pound...of beefcake. But how does that explain the snake hips and bare chests of Johnny Depp, Michael Hutchence and Jonathan Rhy Myers? The term hunk, seems a bit dated once we have seen the likes of 80s action heroes such as Travolta and Willis go to serous seed. But that has not stopped Hollywood from attempting to inflate certain actors, bulking up the bodies of Hugh Jackman and Orlando Bloom. And that is the compelling mystery of the thoroughly male sex bomb. We want them even if we don't like them (Robbie Williams), we look at them even if we want to look away (Antonio Banderas) and we especially want them if they seem a tiny bit seedy (Colin Farrell) or smug (George Clooney) or just plain...dark, moody difficult and hostile (Clive Owens, Sean Penn, Daniel Craig). It would be convenient to compare the greatest sex symbols to Greek Gods and some actually looked like them, especially a younger Jude Law, but a keener truth seems to be that we desire our love gods deeply flawed. Or at least involved with spitfire actresses more troubled than themselves. The major difference though between the modern sex symbol and the old school matinee heroes is that some of the very new ones are actually less dimensional and more driven by image. Many of them really do just look good, you can't smell them onscreen, you don't really dream of them when the credits roll, they've got no griffe or signature or hallmark. Close your eyes and think of Clark Gable's baritone, Brando's drawl or Erroll Flynn's thrust and parry then try and think of what Robert Pattinson sounds like or a legendary line from Justin Timberlake or Jake Gyllenhale. Um, silence? OK, so this is why there is always room for raging bulls like Javier Bardem and film roles with conscience as well as danger as a driving force. Our list of Young Guns caters to many tastes and doubtless will lead to many debates. Is a sex symbol a hard man, a smart man or simply a dumb, solidly built load of alpha DNA? Is it the sullen smirk or the clear blue eyes? Is it the James Bond Scotch on the rocks charm or the rough as guts Gladiator grunt that we want so badly? Possibly a bit of both with plenty of rough trade and smooth lines folded into the blend.
