All About HEGs
Join LibraryThing to post.
This topic is currently marked as "dormant"—the last message is more than 90 days old. You can revive it by posting a reply.
I've kind of been thinking maybe some newcomers to our group do not know what HEG stands for. It's a term that we use often, and rather than anyone feeling shy about asking, why not tell them?
Would the next poster on this thread like to say? And then after that, perhaps some of you would like to find some examples.
HEG's where do I begin to explain about HEG's.
Hot English Guys.
They are Hot. English and male.
It doesn't get better than that, my friends.
Henry Cavill: I know he looks a little sinister and silly with those pants but look into the eyes ladies... mmmm
Gez, I thought if anything would help tease the GD about post count, it would be a thread devoted to HEGs! Was I wrong? ;)
#5-That reminds me, I need a new chest of drawers. Something to keep my clothes in. :oD
Sorry but nothing looks better on him than long hair and elf ears.
Wow. That's all I can say.
We obviously have too much time on our hands.
Once and for all, Johnny's not a HEG. But he is awesome.
In the meantime, an actual HEG.
I know some people don't get the Daniel Craig thing.
Here's someone about whom we can all agree, n'est-ce pas?
(I'm female, by the way. Sorry for not telling you all sooner.)
Better...those look like elf ears though. Who is he?
Sorry, #16 in referance to #14.
lg, your HEGs all have mussed hair...
Do you mean Jude Law?
OK, I'm getting tired. suge will take over at some point. Well, ok, this one is for suge, but that's it!
I have no idea who any of these men are lg...so I have no clue!
I know #18 is Rober Pattison though! (ask me how I figured that one out! just kidding.)
messed hair...I guess I like 'em that way.
btw, these HEG's are doing wonders for my cold.
#23 was in response to #21, not #22.
Is that the guy that plays Samwise in LoTR?
14 Jude Law
15 Clive Owen
20 Gary Oldman
And just to keep it Harry-ish, here's a Weasley. (I dare you to find a picture with his hair combed!)
OK, I'm going to bed now!
I was going to say, "a little stiff", but then I realized it was Snape!
A-R are you SURE you're a girl? How can you not know Colin Firth when you see him?
Sorry, never mind.
#22 is Colin Firth, who played Mr. Darcy in the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice. I'm not a rabid fan, but I'm pretty sure there are some around here somewhere.
Well lg, his hair's messed up...he's yours!
Not to say I don't like guys with bad hair days.
lg, I'm female through and through...trust me. I just don't get out much. Make that, I don't watch TV, and hardly any movies, so my HEG exposure has been severely limited.
I'm laughing like crazy over this thread! What fun! Who else can we post?
I kid you not, that looks like a ski coach I know...
who is that?
#24 they guy who plays sam in LotR is not english. I know his mom. he is also a redhead.
I really am going to bed, but not before posting a couple of Hughs.
hint, he's another hugh.
Sean Astin's mom in Patty Duke. You know Patty Duke!!???!!
I told you...I'm so seriously disconnected from the world...
You have no idea how many people at school used to tease me about this. And people still do a lot.
Oh, I've heard of Patty Duke...she played in some Broadway musicals, right?
Sorry, A-R, didn't mean to put you down. It's just surprising. #33 is Hugh Grant.
I still can't believe rissa knows Patty Duke. The woman is a genius.
Patty Duke is, sigh, a great actress. She got famous as a child actor playing the part of Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker. Later, she played the Annie Sullivan part.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, google it. And then rent the movie.
It's fine lg...I really don't care.
"Sticks and stones
may break my bones
will never hurt me."
I live by that.
yes, I know Patty Duke. my older sister and Reena have even been in a play with her. (she thinks I'm tall, I know random, but she called me tall the last time I saw her and most people call me short.)
Wow....you were in a play with Patty F-ing Duke. Wow. I'm totally squeeing.
Have you ever met Sean?
I think she means all of the Frodo/Sam stuff. It always makes me laugh, because in the books, Sam is one of three characters who actually gets the girl!
(The other two being Aragorn and Faramir, in case anyone was wondering.)
Edited to add, I thought his acting was brilliant, as well. But I can't really think of an example of bad acting in the LotR films.
*giggle* Hey, he's not English, is he? Drat! Time for a thread on hot guys of other nationalities!
HEG's...that's easy. Hot Earth Guys, now everyone is welcome. But I do admit myself that I think that accent is darn sexy.
Elijah is not English, but he plays one..so can we do HFEG's?
Hot Fake English Guys.
A_R, I don't know who a lot of them are without being told, either. I don't know names of actors/actresses much at all because I watch much tv or that many movies. Instead I'll say something like 'remember that guy from the movie _____ who played _____ - he's in this movie, too!' (Or in the case of animated movies, 'that's his voice playing _____!')
#55 -- I'm usually the same way. Hanging around HE has contributed to my education, as far as actor names go.
It's helped me with names, too. I remember when I asked suge who Henry Cavill was. Can you imagine her reaction? ;)
#35 - LG, I hate to point out that Hugh Jackman isn't one of ours - he belongs to Oz, but heck, I lurve to look at him anyway!!
And seeing all these fine exaples of the English male is making me feel all patriotic....Hurrah for the boys!
Imagine being LadyN and being surrounded by HEGs everywhere! MMmmm! Of course, there may be some not-so-HEGs there, too, but they would still have the cute accent!
Hmmmmm...I'll not shatter your illuysions.... IT'S TRUE - THEY'RE EVERYWHERE!!!!!
Hugh Jackman is still cute, tho. Aren't Aussies still part of the Kingdom? Can't we stretch it?
Here's another HAG:
He's single again, too.
*swoons* I forgot howmuch I loved HEGS
LG 26: thanks for the rupert grint, that's one my age...though robert patterson is pretty close too
yes gerry I will runaway with you...
This one is a HUG (Hot UK Guy) he's from Scotland (otherwise known as Och aye land, apparently).
edited for oopsie!
Now I'm feeling sorry for the Hot Latin Guys. Their acronym doesn't spell anything.
(HEG, HAG, HUG...but HLG sounds like something that happens when you give someone the Heimlich Maneuver.)
#72 - ha ha ha!!
We'll think of something for the Latino Lovelies.... What about SLOGs - Sexy Latin Origin Guys??!!!
SLOG is very close to snog.
ETA: I mean wordwise, though it works in the other sense too;)
hm...you've got a very, very good point there rissa.
It's interesting to note people's different tastes in Hegs and other cattegories. Some I agree with, some others I don't...but that's just me!
I think we all have different tastes in HEGs partially due to our different age groups. (Rupert is to young for me, some of the others are too old) and everyone has a slightly different idea of what's hot.
i can't believe that you ladies lured me into this thread. Next time don't use an acronym as the subject, please!
Just to serve up some payback, here's an handsome devil for ya, and he's BOTH english AND australian. Enjoy:
hmmm, that picture didn't seem to work, durnit. Here's the link, anyway:
who ever said anyhthign bad about weasley's is goign to be in trouble! Rupert is gorgoues
AR, you better run and hide. I think there is a table around here somewhere.
We left it in the Happy Birthday Snape thread. accio table!
Boy, the people who were under this table are going to be surprised.
Were they hiding from suge? I thought they were hiding from foggi. Now I need to go back and look...
*A very surprised foggi arrives, sitting on top of the table JP just summoned*
Well, that's one way of getting from one thread to another!
*AR dives under table*
Do you think I'll need any more protection from "Rupert-drooling" fiends?
*From another thread Kerian says "Hey! Where'd the table go?!" After a search, she discovers it here.*
Um, left over cake anyone?
*whispers to A_R*
Only if you mention it. ;)
He's less than half my age and I think Rupert is a hottie. Call me a dirty old bag, but redheads rule!
But I'm not getting my wand out over it! Jeeze. g can have him, he's too young for me.
Okay, he's American not English. I don't watch his show, but I keep seeing his picture in TV Guide and he's sooooo pretty, I had to share.
Really suge? Then you might also enjoy this HKG
His brows aren't so quizzical in this pic. but if you watch his show they are.
Edited becasue the stupid pic didn't copy right!
Okay I can't read the article right now, cause I'm "working" but I glanced and what? Regulus Black in HBP? When is Reg in HBP, except his name?!
Yes, I was thinking DH for Regulus. Unless i'm forgetting how it all worked. I just remember everyone speculating about who RAB was before DH came out.
I think they kid they chose has the right look for Reg.
106- I agree, LG. And he also looks like he belongs in Sirius Black's family.
oooh I cant think of a role I wouldn't love to see Henry in, lg. *sigh* especially if he wanted to play leading man in my life, oooooh! Henry Cavill if you are reading this, I LOVE YOU!
Okay, now I read it and it makes a little bit more sense. He does look like a Black. I do wonder if they'll use the same person for DH, I mean, it doesn't sound like there was much in the way of auditioning!
Suge, since I am on my obsessive kick with Outlander..Henry Cavill is my minds Jamie. He is beautiful in ever sense of that word.
110--> *sigh* HE'S GORGEOUS! I've started watching The Tudors, and every time Charles Brando comes on I feel the need to squeel and fan myself. GORGEOUS!
#110 Jamie should be a HOT REDHEAD! Henry Cavill is hot, but he simply does not qualify.
Then again, I'm not a big fan of Outlander, so whatever you fangirls want is ok with m.e
I'm soooo effing mad! I still dont see an Edward. Robert is undeniably gorgeous, but *sobs* he's not an Edward!
Suge, my dear: now you have did it. I didn't think of Robert as a pretty guy, but here? Pfew! Yup, this is the Edward I want, err, I had in mind when reading the books.
*ducks too to make eye contact* Nah, he's too skinny to play Edward! Edward was lean, but muscle-y. The only way to placate me on the subject is if Robert takes his shirt off and lets me see.
*grins* aww Suge, everything is OK dear!
Anyway: I researched a bit further and *shock* the picture isn't real. Bummer. It is photoshopped.
However, this site has the real deal: pictures on the set!
When is the movie coming out? I guess I should read the book first, because I'm going to see Robert Pattison, fo sho!
THE MAKEUP! WHAT ARE THEY DOING???? THE CULLENS ARE PALE BUT THEY LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF GEISHAS! GRRRRR. They need me at that movie set. they need me.
Urgh. Good thing I checked this thread or I'd have missed the Twilight pics!
#119 Suge, calm down, those are stills. They will look fine on film. Different medium.
He was mentioned, but I didn't see pics!
and also, to indulge my Hobbit fantasies
(though I prefer elves)
I agree with LG. They will look much different in the actual movie itself. *hugs suge*
That's Billy Boyd and Dominic Monaghan! (aka Pippin and Merry, respectively) I find them attractive mostly becuase I think they're hilarious. If you watch the extended LOTR with the cast commentary, you will LOL muchly! I love a man who can make me laugh!
I love their commentary. Except by the third movie, all the actors had to say was whether that scene was done "in pickups" or not. As though we care. ;-)
121--->*calms down* I was thinking that too lg, that's the only reason I didn't have a full-blow tt attack
125--> Don't lie to me! I know you like them because of their hairy feet!
suge, you're a biggeek.
No I'm not, I'm a littlegeek, duh.
Hey, can you see the pics of billy and dom? It showed on my work pc, but its not showing up now....should I replace it?
#126 You know what I would love is if they did a commentary that was just Dom and Billy, they're hilarious, and I really didn't care much about what anyone else had to say. Especially Sean and Elijah, so dull! (By the way, I read Sean's book, he has serious inferiority issues!)
#133 Hey, who could turn out normal if their mom was Patty Duke?
He sure did inherit her talent, tho, huh? His scenes in LOTR make me cry ever time. (I thought of another one--at the end of FOTR when he says, "Mr. Gandalf told me, "don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee" and I don't mean to" *sob*)
#134 Very true, he probably makes me cry in that movie more than anyone else. When reading his book though it's very obvious that he has a complex from being an actor, he uses big words just for the sake of using them and goes on and on about having a Bachelor's degree. It's the way he does it, it's very obvious. It is a pretty interesting read if you can get past that. It's not just about LOTR. He talks about his mom and being worried that he might be Bipolar too. About John Astin and how it was him working on the Frighteners that made Sean want to do LOTR. And then of course there's some fun behind the scenes LOTR stuff too, the famous tatoos, original Aragorn, etc. Oh yeah, he whines about his weight a lot too. Oh well!
Oh yeah, and he's cute here:
Have I ever mentioned that I know Patty Duke? Anna is very nice considering the childhood she had, unfortunatiely some of her issues were passed on to her kids.
Yes, Ris, I've already squeed all over you about this. Do you know Sean, too?
ok--i dunno if they're HEGs but these guys are cute!:
and some fun Twilight photos:
For suge's desktop. ;)
You know, she had complained the Cullen's were too pasty, but Edward isn't in this Twilight poster I found. We must wait till we see the movie previews before accusing the movie of making them look like Geishas, I figure.
Robert Pattinson as Edward...
Billy Burke as Charlie...
Jackson Rathbone as Japer...
Kellan Lutz as Emmet...
Peter Facinelli as Carlisle...
Cam Gigandet as James...
Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black...
There are more listed on Meyer's site.
I don't really have anything to say, but I have a nice long line of my name as the last post right now and I can always put up more pics of hot guys! How about a HIG
You know what's sad, now I want to find a Hot Indonesian Guy to post up here!
Hmmm....when you google "hot indonesian guy" girls come up.
Here is a hot Indian guy though!
Edited b/c I used the wrong reference!
I stopped watching Heroes a while back but he was the best thing about it. Pure sex on two legs.
OK, I'll stop now.
#146 Totally! (But I still watch it) This guys pretty hot too:
#147 He does nothing for me, but you do know that he's been cast as Spock in the new Star Trek movie, right? That I can see.
I stopped watching Heroes when they stopped doing the rerun before BSG. I only watched it when it was on scifi channel. It's on NBC on a night I'm busy.
i only started watching because kristen bell is on it now and i loved Veronica Mars
lg, I don't think there have been any new episodes in a long time, not since before the holidays.
That's because it's barely been on lg. Thanks to greedy producers and writers.
Syler scares the living daylights out of me. Son of Hannibal Lector. Brrrr.
Now Mohinder is easy on the eyes....
They ended Chapter 2 before the Holidays because they were unsure when the strike would end. Chapter 3 will start in the fall. I agree Sylar is totally creepy, and normally I don't really have a "bad boy" thing, but I just think he's hot. I haven't seen a ST movie since Generations, but you better believe I'm going to see this one! I love JJ Abrams too!
not greedy writers jp, they weren't being compensated for dvd's of tv shows or tv being watched online, even though the companies make money from both.
Oh sorry. Did not intend it to look that way. I meant, thanks to writers and greedy producers. I backed the writers. As a writer, I wanted them to be compensated.
So hard to concentrate on grammar on a pretty day...
I have to say, I was confused as to why you seemed to think the writers were greedy, it seemed out of character! I'm glad it got cleared up!
I wanted to bring this one back to the first page so I was racking my brain to think of more HEGs and I came up with this one, he's cute and he can cook! (And even better with fresh, natural ingredients!)
ahhh...what a wonderful thread to revive. Can't see Rupert, tho. Damn.
And Heath, oh, poor Heath....sob.
Looks like kirby's managed to get the stone from suge. Perhaps we will be superhero twins. I'm the Resurrector, what shall kirby be?
It hasn't been that long. May 13th to May 23rd. Only 10 days. I'm slowly working my way through all the posts.
My dentist is a hot English guy but I don't have a picture (because that would be weird).
If I knew how to post a picture I would put one of the lovely David Tennent as Doctor Who up. Technically he's Scottish but it's joined on and he does a lovely English accent.
I like to help out, but no idea which rupert lg was looking for. Here's a couple:
There's one other rupert that comes to mind but i'm not posting pictures because that feels weird.
And this is for jody (shh! don't tell andy about the man-candy!)
Actually, i just want to post pictures of daleks and sonic screwdrivers.
If we are going to have daleks and sonic screwdrivers, we need to have K9!
Sorry, but to me David Tennant is a dweeb. Here's a nice HEG you can find on the scifi channel.
And I refrained from the ones where he's just in a towel.
Here's the Rupert I meant.
Although thanks for Rupert Everett, MrA, he's a babe.
I just scanned through the entire thread, agreeing with all the incredible hotness, but thinking to myself, "Where is David Tennant!?!" Thank you MrAndrew.
You may think he is a dweeb, but he has HP connections. Remember the crossover episode where Dr. Who meets Voldemort?
I remember, comp. He still does nothing for me, but my Rupert Grint obsession is not very common.
Redheads...what can I say?
mmmmhmmm of all the threads to let die out.... tisk tisk tisk...
my work is never done. *rolls eyes and rolls up sleeves*
We are the International Federation of H_G's we provide a safe, well lit place were all the H_G's of the world can gather. *sanctimonisouly* Yes, this is a good thing.
the love of my life and the face of Dunhill, HENRY aka "Eddie C." Cavill
Dang! I'll never have a chance at Henry! Look at he competition!
Ok, If you haven't noticed, I'm totally obcessed with the guy I thought would make the perfect E. C. (You-know-Who-II)
btw doesn't Henry's butt look fantastic and pinchable in the pic with the camera?? Wow. What a man!
Don't worry, suge. I'm thinking Kerian is going to start hanging out at the local pool, cruising for swimmers.
LOL! I want to hang out at the local pool and cruise for swimmers! Maybe if i pretend to drown.... (but i wouldn't be pretending I can't swim at all!)
HEGS HEGS HEGS!
I just looked at Men's Health, my new favorite mag (Lucky? Vogue? Elle? Star? Blah! Im all about Men's Health now) and there was this spread with oooooooh Henry Cavil!!!!!!! He was soooo devine I wish I could share the pics with you guys!
A little bird named suge kept posting loads of pics of him ever since the invention of the word HEG. ;)
Please learn how to swim!
#180 K, you know I'm just kidding around. and you know suge isn't. (She's looking up the address of the nearest pool as we speak.)
suge, good excuse to learn to swim.
*blushes and closes screen listing all the pools in the New York Metro area* NO I'M NOT!
and yes I am, I am going to start swim lesons. I even dropped by my gym and got the flyer. It is somewhere in one of my bags....
Good for you, suge! Now we don't have to worry if there isn't some HEG or HAG there to save you. Maybe you'll even find some at the gym! ;)
look kerian I've almost drowned several times. I can usually get myself out. Nothing to worry about.
Ok enough morbid talk about me possibly drowning on Sunday! more HEGS!
What color are his eye? I can never tell what color peoples eyes are. Anything that is not brown I call blue or green
On Sunday?! Get those swimming lessons fast!
Ew. Look at those arms.
Anyhow, a place for you to ogle over Phelps. These were from the Olympics thread...
Sorry, guys, he has a nice body and all, (but not the nicest by far), but otherwise he does nothing for me. Even in those studio shots where they're trying so hard to make him look sexy. To each hir own.
This thread just gave my computer a seizure. It froze and kept beeping! Maybe it was reacting to the HEGs.
I lurrrrrrrrrrrrrve lacoste man.... I resisted the nekkid pic..... Goodness knows how....
I am ga-ga for 188 and now I have to change my dress.
#190---> FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DON'T MICKEY MOUSE!!!
K, as long as you don't get a steady beeeeeeeeeeee..... I think your computer will be alright. ;o)
194---> mmmm butiful! He makes me want to wax shapes into his chest hair. Smiley faces, sail boats....
Another "vote" for Orlando ...
And how about a fake English guy? (James Marsters! Hey, it's not like Michael Phelps is even pretending to be English, right?)
It's Spike! Vampire on the loose! I wonder what he looks like without the bleached hair. Brown might be better for him.
He plays a fake English guy on Torchwood (Doctor Who spinoff), too, and he has brown hair. (His natural colour.) Actually, he basically plays Spike as a time-travelling pansexual human in that show.
Nothing like finding an interesting and informative thread you haven't seen before.
Feel free MsD to add any HAGs (Hot Australian Guys). As long as they have a cute accent works for me :)
102--> *gasps loudly* holy holy holy HOLY!!!! PHWOAR!!! HUBBA HUBBA HUBBA!
LG, WHO IS HE, AND DOES HE WANT TO RUN AWAY WITH ME??!!
What I meant was 201, (tho I'm sure 102 is probably smokin' also!) that guy is so so so *struggles for words* so so so breathtakingly, incredibly, gorgeously glorious, that he made me temporarily dislexic.
LOL! I ha a candid of myself like that, some unscrupulous person snapped it unexpectedly, but my case, the post-stroke face was completely unintentional. What's on TV?
suge, that's Jamie Bamber, from Battlestar Galactica. Remember, I sent his picture to your profile page.
btw, any of our UK ladies, the lovely Mr. Bamber has been cast in Law & Order UK (or is it Law & Order London? - I've heard it both ways.)
oh, and suge, he's married. And short. very short. sorry.
MrA is hawt! (that is MrA, right?)
Sorry - I misunderstood that I was meant to post pics of cute guys. In Australia when you hear the word hag you immediately think of a person who is... let's say unfortunate looking.
Here is a cutie to make up for the unfortunate pic at post 207.
210--> *face deflates slightly* He is still very, very gorgeous. *sigh* even I you hadn't told me that BSG is a great show, I would watch it just to watch him... even if I hade to work to tune out the mind-numbing dialogue.
You can also find Mr Bamber in Hornblower if boys on boats is more your thing than boys in space.
I can't imagine a place where I wouldn't like boys. So boys in ships ---sail or rocket---are very welcome! Thanks! I've been meaning to read the Horatio Hornblower series and watch the movies but where does a girl get the time for everything? I also don't trust the publication dates nor the order in which he books are displayed at the book store.
What I mean is that sometimes a Jane Austen book would be copywritten in 1995. I know better than that, but what about authors that are less known to me? How do I know which book to read first? Look at Clive Staples Lewis (his name is sooo English) his Narnia books are all out of order. I suppose I could google these things, but do you understand what I'm saying?
As far as I'm aware, the first Hornblower book is "Mr Midshipman Hornblower". After that it's all a blur. The first Hornblower in the TV series is called "The Even Chance", though I believe they have different titles in America to England/Australia. In fact, I just went and looked it up and it appears to be called "The Duel" for those of you looking for it in the US.
207, 209, 212 MsDonna, Thanks! Hehehe!
ETA: Suge, What are you doing up so early, besides thinking about boys? :)
Hey suge, why don't you use the series feature here on LT? They'll list the books in the correct order for you and for the more contested series I've seen them list in both chronological order and publication order.
Patrick O'Brien is a much better writer than Forrester, imho. Try the Aubrey/Maturin books, they rock.
suge, BSG is brimming with HEGs & HAGs. Here's Michael Trucco, who is American and 6'3".
And while we're on the subject of HAG tv actors, here's a couple of new favourites of mine:
Jon Hamm from Mad Men
And Jeffrey Donovan from Burn Notice
216-->Thanks, I am very anal about reading things in order!
Thanks, Bib! I completely forgot about that feature!
Ha ha ha! Compski! It is a very rare thing for me to get up before 1 or 2 pm on a weekend. I don't sleep much during the week so I make up for it then. Couple that with the fact that I am more than the usual amount of lazy, and the fact that I am a marathon sleeper---I've slept thru whole weekends---and you get someone who .... sleeps a lot during the weekend... yes.
No, the reason I was up at that time was because I wanted to go swimming at this pool I've never been to. It was divine. It wasn't crowded and the pool is HUGE! The day was gloriously sunny... ah perfection! I see myself going there every Saturday from now on. I got a really great workout, my arms want to fall off!! And I am TANNED!
New HEG. This is Oliver Goodwill. He's in the "Call Me When You're Sober" video by Evanescence.
From the video:
Looks less like a vampire:
OMG - how old is he? Say he is a young looking forty year old. *wishing*.
K! You posted him! HOW DID YOU FIND HIM???? I looked everywhere! Oliver! And you said he is 6'1! Yay! He is soooo gorge! It was his eyes and his lips that made me swoony.
I'm surprised by you! I expected you to check here for him right away, and no! ;) Basically in the long run, all it took was a quick google image search. I had been going about looking for him the difficult way. All it took were these keywords: "Evanescence hot guy." I kid you not.
lol I couldn't find him at all. I think I Googled "man sitting across the table from Amy Lee in Lose Control Video", "Hot guy in lose control by Evanescence", you know, asinine stuff.
he is soo gorgie! And dreamy! And yummy! OOOOHHHH! I can't do anything else. I have this page up on my phone too, so I keep losing my train of thought, and day-dreaming about Oliver Goodwill.
Wrong song, by the way. That was part of the problem. I had wondered why her mouth wasn't moving right for the words. Someone had put the music from one song ("Loose Control") with the video from another ("Call Me When You're Sober") together.
The internet can be sooo unreliable.
Oliver Goodwill possibly the most beautiful person alive.
I haven't forgotten about Henry tho. I still love him too. A woman's heart is a treasure trove of love. I can love more than one, or two. or three.
I can't help myself, I must post another pic of the sexiest man alive ...
I just got into Doctor Who. What took me so long? No idea. But I've now seen four whole episodes and I'm hooked. The DVD's are bleeping expensive though! I think I might have to download on iTunes and burn them to DVD until I can afford the real thing.
All that was my way of agreeing with you....maybe not the sexiest, but he's definitely on my list.
Plus David Tenant is pretty hilarious. I saw him on Top Gear and I was ROFL! I think funny is sexy too.
ok, so I put this on my work desktop:
(only in mine he is smilling a little bit more)
and every time I minimize something, his face makes me giggle.
I was just told to look up 'hot english guys' instead of by name. I said some of them are oldish or I don't know them. Response: "I never find old guys when I look up hot emo guys." Kik. The next generation's version of HEGs?
I am sooooooooooooooooooooo close to sending a gifyt in the amil to suge... There's a shop down the road from me selling calenders with hot english firemen in it...
Hmmm... I think I mean a "gift in the mail", rather than "gifyt in the amil"....
I kinda liked "gifyt in the amil" -- don't know what it is, but it sounds like something one might encounter in a fantasy novel.
Forsooth, methinks thou shouldst procure a gifyt from yon shoppe, if it indeed be comely males of combustion. Gadzooks.
Holy cricket! A gifyt in the amil! Methinks miLadyN should not write whilst she swoons over HEGs.
240----> EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE YES YES YES!!!! I have a thing for firefighters and I have a thing (you may or may not have noticed) for English guys so that would be PERFECT! I love you N! MUA! OOOH, I almost spontaniously combusted trying to picture it all! *sucks in a shaky breath*
You almost spontaneously combusted?!
Good thing it's a firefighter calender, then, huh? ;)
Exactly, Cat! How are you? I haven't seen you in ages! We must, must, must make our excursion th Cranberry Lake soon!
Except for the plague, I'm great! Yes, we must make our excursion to Cranberry Lake! Should I have my people call your people? ;)
ummm *backs up from monitor slightly* what plague is this? *places a hanky she didn't know she owned surreptitiously to her face, just in case*
OK, I may have suggested that my husband take the kids bike riding because I thought it might help them to sweat out the rest of this stoopid virus that they've had for a week now and it may have backfired and actually caused all their fevers to go back up...
Yes, suge, please stay away until this horrible thing is out of the house. I'm not even sick and I'm ready to put my head through a wall if they don't get better soon.
I'm so sorry you guys are so miserable right now! I'm sure you (or your doctor) have an arsenal of Jedi virus-anihiliting tricks, JP. I hope that everone will be better soon *hugs jp gingerly with arms straight out and head thrown as far back as possible. Blows a kiss at cat*
By the way, you guys are not just saying that so I don't come over, right? I know your son definately doesn't want me in the house, and your youngest holds only the most acute contempt possible for me. I can't come over, not even if I bring my cat spa services to your home?
By all means suge, if you think we're faking it, come on over! Feel lucky?
Lucky? What is that?
Is that like last weekend when we were having dinner outdoors in City Island and a seagull crapped on my out-streched finger? Sure I should not have fed them, but still... what are the chances? I really don't make this stuff up.
You were at City Island last weekend? So were my parents! They were celebrating their anniversary! I wonder if you were at the same restaurant. What coincidence! Holy crap!
Sugey-pie, I had a feeling you might like it... I'll see what one can do, and who knows, that gifyt in the amil could be yours!!
Oh and by the way
*waves frantically looking a bit "care in the community"*
I just read the rest of this thread. It only had 90 posts last time I read it!
#256 Hi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hehehe, suge would be ecstatic if you got her the gifyt in the amil!
I think suge needs some more HEGs. Google!
Hey, it's that Eragon guy! (apparently his name is Edward Speleers) He's 20.
William Moseley, 21
Hmmmm...it says his name is Brandon Wilson, he's 6'2 (good height, right?), has dark blonde hair, and green eyes.
Okay, I found him and I know he's not English but...
It's Chad! (he's 27)
Marco Dapper........he was on the cover of Men's health, suge! (25)
I still can't get this to work so whatever.
Google's fun. ;)
ETA: Nooo! Why aren't my pictures working?!?!?!
Man, am I old....those boys look like they're fresh out of diapers.
I agree that they look young, LG. No more HEG's who are young enough to be my kid!
For all you Doctor Who fans:
*Slight Spoiler warning: don't watch if you haven't seen the end of season 2*
The Shakespeare Code
Now, if he could just talk about how he can relate to Barty Crouch, Jr.
#558 & 259 Well usually all the HEGs you post look old. The ones I posted are 30 and under. (I am not saying over thirty is old! just too old for me)
I liked that episode. I loved the line about book 7. Lol
Doctor Who doesn't have any new episodes on right now. :(
*sigh* #259 Makes me so happy.
I'm annoyed that I waited so long to get into Doctor Who, and now I have to wait until November before I can get the Season 4 DVD. (I got Season 3 and Season 1 of Torchwood last weekend, but I haven't watched any of the Torchwood yet.)
How old is this guy, suge? He looked so young in Eragon! ERAGON SPOILER! And, he was fifteen, turning sixteen in the book...He was seventeen in the movie. I think that was for the benefit of modern day children coming of age at eighteen versus at the age they do in the Inheritance series. END spoiler warning
No, no, no, no, non, mon Grasshopper, you are refering to Ed Speleers:
and the lovely gorgy upstairs in 263 is Ben Barnes who played Prince Caspian in er... what was the name of that movie?... Prince Caspian, he was also in Stardust:
Here he is as P.C. in er.... P.C. (he's the taller fellow):
I'm not seeing the Prince Caspian pic. For K, since you keep asking, looks like the Speeler kid is 20 now. Ben Barnes (who I checked on imdb as soon as I got home from Prince Caspian) is a wonderfully non-cringe inducing 27.
Now that all my kids are gone I can thoroughly enjoy this thread.
I forgot that was the same guy. (Ben Barnes in both Stardust and Prince Caspian.)
KIK, Kirby. :)
Aww. Poor suge! Let's make that frowny face happy!
I think it was one of these pictures....
Yes, I try to make sure not to open this thread if anyone else is around. Some of the pictures you guys have posted....
!#271---> What do you mean? They are so beautiful! It is like a gallery in a museum full of gods.
*whispers to kirby* I try not to open this thread when anyone else is around, either.
You're welcome, suge.
I've decided that I'm going to make a list, of the most RIDICULOUSLY gorgeous men (imho) alive:
This is going to have to be part one I must fly....
271, Speaking as a building tech coordinator, you probably should avoid this thread at school, Kirby. Your computer stores most pictures you see on the web and they are not hard to find on it. Save it for home.
Of course not (to the viewing at school). I do save it for home, but how embarrassing is it when your mum or dad walk by when you're viewing this thread.
kik! Good point! At least your parents see it in context, though. But on the other hand, then they start wondering about the people you are hanging around with online. :)
I just watched The Last Legion. Not the greatest movie ever, but some great sword fighting by our Mr. Darcy.
He even manages to get his shirt wet at one point!
mizz D! who is he he is bootiful. (altho you can't see it in the pic!)
back to my mission in life:
The other day I asked my mom why she couldn't have waited till like 1987 to have me... sigh.
tsk tsk christian Bale, you naughty boy! You can't be in the list twice!
The second picture was intended to be:
but maybe Christian is way too gorge to erase.
Why, MsDonna.... That's a bootiful piccie of Mr Gyllenhall..... Hmmmmmmm..
What the hell???? Christian Bale is STALKING ME!!! YES! YES! YES!
No way! I thought it had a liking to him, but I was like now way Gyllenhall is not that gorgeous. Nice.
don't be tongue tied Mr. I know they are beutiful, but they are nice boys.
Ok I'm going to try this agian. Go away Christian, but only for a little while:
Alex Pettyfer is maybe 10 years old. That is why I asked my mom why she made me so old.
That makes me less confused. I had wondered why you said you wished you weren't born till '87 with the photos from #285. I knew that guy was surely older than that! Now, though...Suge, you craddle robber! (And I would guess 13-14.)
Just checked. It's your lucky day. He's 18.
I'm baffled why you don't watch Grey's. It's full of HAGs. ashe and kirby say there's a new hot Scottish actor in tomorrow night's episode.
MMMM veir nice, veir nice. Just keep posting pics, I'll consider it watching Grays.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan
This is Isaiah Washington. He was kicked off the show for dissing...
T.R. Knight. My 19 y/o sis is unhappy because he's gay. (Only in RL, not on the show.)
omg, LL is so totally hawt. Thank you, suge.
that first guy in #293 makes me think of Javier Bardem, who is hot, but of whom it is hard to find a decent still. (btw, suge, you're such a good influence on Kerian. She's posting HEGs now!)
I couldn't believe it, LG! I'm so proud of her! And of me for actually being a possitive force. *pats self on back*
Ohhh I'm almost done with I Capture the Castle!!!!!!! I can probably watch the movie tonight!EEEEEEEEEE! Henry Cavil plays Stephen!! They are both sooo very dreamy. OK! I'm having a melt down here. I need to look at Henry's face. OOOOOH.
he is soooo beautiful. *sigh* All jokes aside, if I ever met him (EEEEEEEE!!!) I would probably pass out for real. I know we joke around about me swooning, but I think it would be for real, because he takes my breath away.
Okay, I admit it. I'm not boy crazy, but when it comes to Grey's...
It was all because of McDreamy that I watched "Enchanted." (McDreamy is Patrick Dempsey's character's nickname on Greys', for the obscenely weird who do not know. ;)
I found out the name of the Scottish actor on tonight's episode. It's Kevin McKidd.
I thought that at first glance, but I don't think so. But then again, I could be wrong.
Kid sis agrees. As for # 299..."Are you kidding?!"
Who is Trace Cyrus? She wants his pic here.
Isn't that Henry Cavil? Let me check google..Yep! (OMG, how did I know that?!)
They took a photo! He was in a suit. This will have to do.
I agree about his dog. This is the kind of dog I wanted since I was fourteen.
ETA: Now I see the photo again! What's going on?
Couldn't resist, I'm watching Entourage.
309--> I've never wanted to play so much. *purr*
OMG my whole world is upside-down. Kerian is a total Hegspert. Sorry for the mystery guys, that is indeedy Henry Cavil in 299.
K, why did your sis say "are you kidding"?
I've been planning a Henry montage for some time:
These are all pics I grabbed off Just Jarred, who is a bit of a hero of mine. Also the pics were from a Mens Health shoot. I tell you that is my favorite mag. I tell you.
Oh! Please, Please Please work! He is too beautiful!
edited to add It didn't work of course. I'm very sad. Very sad. I worked so hard on this and only one pics kept repeating itself. I'm so sad. Do you guys mind if I leave this pic? I kow it's rather big.
edited again for resizing. I want my money back k, if it didn't work.
edited YET AGAIN!!!!! GRRRR! TOO SMALL!!!!
AND AGAIN!!!! TOO NARROW!!!
*shrugs* She didn't think he was hot. Maybe she thought he looked old? She is thirteen.
You're worried about the size of a photo on this thread?! There is resizing ( ) but keep it the way it is.
Hmm. Don't google the word "HEG." I wondered if we had an effect on the world at all yet. Apparently not.
hmpf. whatever, hater.
I'm going to continue my life's work. If you can tell me how to resize I will love you for ever.
HA HA I AM UNSTOP...... Will you look at the time!!! Its almost 5 pm I must put my shoes back on and leave this place.
I did tell you, silly.
Photo Re-Sizing with HEGs: A Beginner's Guide
For copies of my book, please refer to the following link, Photo Re-Sizing with HEGs. Resizing photos of HEGs is just two mouse clicks away, fifty percent guaranteed. (Heehee.) If you can't wait for your ordered purchase of my book to arrive in the mail, here's a preview tell-all guide:
Take your usual photo code info
Between the closing/end quotation marks and the last carrot/aligator mouth, you're going to enter in some extra information. ( " RightHere > )
Where I wrote the words RightHere, place in this information without any spaces:
height = " HeightYouWant " width = " WidthYouWant "
The height and width can only be entered using numbers. To give you an estimate, the covers displayed on my profile page are 100 for height and 68 for width.
Let's practice photo resizing.
translates as ...
Resizing to twice in a half as large . . . 250 X 170
Does this help? :)
And since you want to make Henry's pic kind of larger, let's get you a better size estimate...
KIK! To think I'm teaching you resizing photos with HEGs! This should be a class or something, right? ;)
ETA: Humbug! I have to leave now. I'll check to see your photo resizing progress after I'm home from work. 9pmish LT time. Adios!
Resizing....naw, I won't go there.
So anyway, who's up for a little HEG action...I feel in the mood for someone I wouldn't go to jail for coveting, how about the lovely Dr. House, Hugh Laurie.
And here he is as I first saw him, as the idiot prince in BlackAdder. Handsome, musical and funny--the Trifecta of hotness!
edited because my html skills are off today. I think I'll blame Kenley, or maybe Michael Kors.
I think the link might be open. Is my text to your link as well?
See you Saturday, LG! :)
:P~~~ What money?
I just watched the new Twilight trailer and had to post Edward.
KIK, do you think it might be cold in Washington?
i WISH I COULD SEE!!!! MY BEEEEEP BEEP BEEEEEEP BEEEEEEP COMPANY BLOCKS CERTAIN SITES BEEEEEEEPERS.
His chest hair is visible. It kind of turns me off. I don't remember any mention of Edward having chest hair. Isn't his chest always described as "smooth marble"? Marble isn't hairy.
Bib, you have me cracking up.
btw does Edward have a cleft in his chin? I can't remember if he does or not.
No, yes and No, K. What's with the links? Why don't you just post the pics here? I've been curious about that.
#321 Yeah, I always thought that was uber stupid. There's sunlight during the day, even with clouds.
OK, I'll shut up now. (God, I'm a brat today.)
yeah, the pick the link goes to is in-between takes. they always bundle actors then if it's even a little cold because they usually can't be bundled when they are filming. they filmed in Oregon, not Washington, but it's still rainy the place they filmed, so they were probably trying to protect the actors' hair, clothes, and makeup from the rain.
that hair-helmet looks like it could protect him quite well from the rain all by itself.
Just to bug the h e double ladders out of you. ;) Post #318 isn't much of a HEG - only half his face shows! As for #325, while a photo can always appear as a red 'x' when computers don't load the imagines, this never happens with links that I know of. I thought I was making it easier for you to see the photos.
I agree! Overcast days burn my eyes more than some days with clear skies. (How are you a brat? Never! :)
Thanks for the location correction! I wonder why they didn't film in WA!
Lg, you are tripping right now, well when you wrote that! Taking jabs at Twilight. TWILIGHT ROCKS!! WHOOOOO! I love you LG.
Ah k, no. sorry you are not making things easier for me. I'm kidding. a little bit. I understand now, tho. Thanks, babe. Now I'm being a brat! I very sober right now, that is why.
I didn't know it bugged you, I'm sorry! I just thought you thought I was weird for linking. ;) What can I say, it's like bringing life to words. (Isn't writing our own stories supposed to be what does that? Oh well.) You're welcome, and I'm glad one of the links worked for you. You're not being a brat! :)
That explains! Thanks, riss! :)
We watched the 2005 Pride and Prejudice in chat tonight.
And you guys missed the officers! ;)
Poor MacFadyen who won't get asy many swoons as Firth!
ETA: Opps! How'd that get in there? Nevermind!
Let's post and compare our Mr. Darcy's
And as their normal self:
I have to say that I enjoy Mr. Firth as his normal everyday self, than Mr. McFadyen.
I have to say that the top Mr Darcy isn't as well groomed as the second Mr Darcy. ;)
Which is way hotter!
I'm really disappointed, I introduced suge to a whole bunch of new HEGs this weekend and she was going to post them. *sigh* I'll just do it for her.
There you go suge.
That's John Barrowman. Born in Scotland, he moved to the U.S. but is now living in England/Wales where he films Torchwood. He's pretty.
Jon Erick Hexum. He did a show in the 80's called Voyagers. I loved it but it only lasted 1 season.
He was killed before he was 30. Supposedly shot in the head by a blank on a tv set.
He was such a babe! I also remember thinking that Meeno Peluce was a cutie too.
Maybe we need to start a Voyagers! group. I had no idea there were three people who even remembered it :)
I almost feel bad for this thread with LG and suge busy. Out of pity...
Which HEG is maddest? You decide.
KIK! So is this guy...
...and yet, we want to think this one could not help himself and that he might have been sweet. Such a lonely and confused man is Edward Scissorhands!
What? Is Depp an honorary Englishman now? I thought he lived in Paris?
Kerian knows I can't resist the allure of Johnny. Even when he has uglified himself into oblivion.
I think the Willy Wonka is the most disturbing. "You're weird."
And ya, he's not a HEG. But he does a passable English accent.
kik! Right you are. ;) I agree, he's close enough to being a HEG.
I just saw this HEG in a movie tonight. The dvd was purchased scratched so we couldn't watch the last twelve minutes of the movie. ('Across the Universe' - sister's choice. It's so weird!)
Dreamy! You should catch him in 21, but he doesn't have the cute accent in it.
I scream for 338!!! Thank you Bib. The are so beautiful.
And HUMUNA HUMUNA! to "the taller gentleman", ("better and better").
You know, most of these are really, really HEGgy...
but some of them are really, really...racy!
You all have fun! I'm going to bed. Night!
yay it worked!!! I feel powerful, I can post an image! This is Robert Downey jr from Ironman
also marky mark wahlberg (first saw him in three kings)
George clooney he may be old but...
yum. ryan reynolds
soccer. cough i mean football
david beckham HEG
Welcome to LibraryThing and Hogwarts Express, katillac! I can see you're going to fit right in. ;-)
welcome, katillac. You may need to know that HEG = Hot English Guy. I don't think any of the lovely gentlemen you posted are actually English. But yay! They're hot.
Thanks for reviving the thread.
But one played an Englishman and the other was on an English TV show, well two...so I count them and honorary HEGs
Guys, guys, guys... HEG started out as Hot English Guys. But I think that the movement has evolved to encompass all manner of godlike male creatures. All nationalities, races, religions and ages of gorgeous men are welcome. If the world were a HEG, it would be, well a beautiful place to live.
Soooo tall and soooo dreeeeeamy... Rupert Penry-Jones
Whats he hiding under all that velvet, you say?
#373 -- "Death cannot stop True Love . . ."
(Yes, there is a Princess Bride quote for nearly every occasion!)
I cannot tell you how glad I am that someone revived this hot guys topic. I had not seen it before, and well...and now I can't stop.
What is the dang code for posting pictures on here??? Because we need a much better one of Daniel Craig. The one in the bathing suit on the beach. Hubba hubba.
My HEG is Alan Rickman. That voice of his makes him hot. I want him to whisper sexy somethings in my ear.
Venus, the code is (with no spaces unless specified)
Alan Rickman is a god.
Try to control yourself, Foggi!
down ladies, down!
Wow LT dissed me!
someone who isn't completely helpless at explaining things help Venus. I typed in the code but I didnt do it right so it disapeared. I'll try to find the Newbies practice with pics page, Venus.
I left a message on her profile page--and had to go back and leave a second, as everything I typed after the opening angle bracket disappeared. Tricky, that.
I love the Rickman character cards. Fabulous.
time to debut new Hegs!!! You ladies are slacking!!
Kunal Khemu a HIG I want to get higgie with...
I think Jim Sturgess is soooo cute
Idris Elba... All I've got to say is PHWOAR!!!
At first I couldn't STAND Russell Brand, but he won me over in "Bedtime Stories", and a few other films. and if he promises to comb his hair from time to time... we might just keep him on our HEG list.
And no... Chiwetel is not a debut, but how can anyone complain when that shirt looks sooooo gooooood on him??
Oh, no! The Chiwetel didn't come out!
Well while I'm at it... Matthew Goode
Samuel Roukin, soo sooo underrated as a sex god
What is it about messy haired blokes that drives me crazy? Dylan Moran
Personally, I think its been too long since we've had James Franco's killer looks around here
Ohhh and where would we be without a Fitzwilliam Darcy montage?
Thank goodness! I hadn't had my Darcy fix in awhile. I am most seriously pleased!
383 picture filled posts. How about someone starts a new thread before my high speed internet has heart failure?
