No matter how many good guys come along, there’s just something about the allure of a bad boy… My top 4:
Bender – The Breakfast Club
The epitome of the boy from the wrong side of the tracks, John Bender stuck it to the man, got everyone high, and ended his day with a kiss from the Prom Queen. Not to mention he totally rocked the grunge, layered look before anyone had even heard of Kurt Cobain.
Captain Jack Sparrow – Pirates of the Caribbean
He’s dirty, subsists mostly on rum, and somehow rocks guy-liner throughout four movies set in a time before eyeliner. Jack Sparrow – sorry, Captain – Captain Jack Sparrow, is wild and crazy, plus he totally invented swagger. To put the nut into the proverbial nutshell: EVERY. GIRL’S. PIRATE. FANTASY.
Spike – Buffy the Vampire Slayer
First he was totally twisted, and had a creepy-yet-alluring relationship with crazy vampire Dru. Then he was tortured and heartbroken, and then he had a super hot, tumultuous love-hate relationship with Slayer Buffy. Nutshell #2: Spike is the most badass, sexy, multifaceted vampire out there. And the British accent doesn’t hurt, either.
President Fitzgerald Grant – Scandal
Mr. President, mostly known as Fitz, gets it done. Kind of. He runs the most powerful country in the world, but somehow manages to have plenty of time to make America’s Baby with his gorgeous manipulative wife AND have super hot sex with his true love/mistress/future FLOTUS (we hope) Olivia Pope. President P.I.M.P., anyone?
