It's that time of year again! Yes, it's the 5th day of the 5th month of the year, and it's time for our...

Freebie Top 5 List 2018

If you're new here and are wondering "wtf is a freebie list?", it's "A list of 5 celebrities who, should the opportunity arise, one is allowed to sleep with without it being considered as cheating by your significant other." (Urban Dictionary)

And yes, we do this every year.


No, it's not some change in algorithm.  Tastes change.  People change.  Suddenly, some actor that perpetually looks like a hobo cleans up his act, and -- TADA! -- he's listworthy.  On the flip side, some actor that was near the top of the list does something really super douche-y, and no amount of cuteness will ever redeem him enough to keep him on the list.
It's only fair to the non-douche-y.

Okay, when making your list, the Number One Rule is There Are No Rules. Actually, that's a lie. There are 5 very scientific rules...

1: Remember that this is all in fun. You cannot use "Nenette said it was okay" as your defense when you get arrested for breaking into Chris Pratt, Scarlet Johannsen, or David Hasselhoff's house or anything like that. I did not say it was okay. I love y'all but you're on your own.
2: Stick to 5. Any more would be greedy, and I'm all about the sharing.
3: Keep it to current humans -- as in 'alive and at their present age'. You shouldn't need a time machine to do the nasty with them. (Do you hear me, Sylvia?!)
4: Speaking of "the nasty", THAT IS ALL. Just sex. No relationships. Nothing serious. Think a secluded tropical getaway, a steamy night in a hotel, even a hot quickie in a dark alley. In case there's any confusion, see #1.
5: Think long and hard about this! This is your list FOR THE YEAR. Pretend it's laminated.

Okay, here's mine...

1:  Keanu Reeves

Yes, he's jumped to the top from last year.  And despite this being all about a one-night thing (and pretend), I would consider something long term.  Hypothetically.  Really.  Ahem...
He's tall, dark, and handsome, the strong-silent type, offbeat and a little weird (which seems to be my MO), a bassist with a rock band (like me!), an accomplished actor/producer, spiritual, lives simply, generous and thoughtful, and he's Canadian... with English manners.
And because he's in his 50s, I don't feel quite so cradle-robby.

2:  Gerard Butler

Again, Lainey once said he doesn't seem to know how to wear pants, but if your body was designed to wear a kilt, is that even an issue?  I don't think so.
I still can't watch his films.  I like to stick to his interviews because he's funnier and sweeter.  In a movie role, his lack of accent throws me off, then I think "Oh, hey, it's Gerry pretending to be a Secret Service Agent", and eventually, I tune out... until he takes off his shirt.

3:  Benedict Cumberbatch

He's Dr. Strange.  Need I say more?  I do?  Fine... Tall, dark, handsome.  The accent, the intensity, the voice that makes you feel like you're wrapped up in chocolate.  Dark chocolate with nuts.  Almonds.  Yes, dark chocolate covered almonds.

4:  Victor Webster

I loved him in Charmed, and really, he's aged quite nicely.  He's tall, handsome, and Canadian who's also a Martial Arts master.  He's funny,a loyal friend, and has a great photographic eye.  And let's face it, I'm a sucker for a scruffy guy.
Of all the guys on my list, I'm willing to bet he smells the most like sandalwood.  Yes, that still matters.  A lot.  A really lot.

5:  Ed Quinn

This guy has made his way back to my list.  Yes, he was on here very early on, but he disappeared for a while.  He got my attention again with his stint on the One Day at a Time remake (watch it -- it's quite fun! And I adore Rita Moreno).  He was shirtless.  But really, what got him back on this list is his humour.  He was so funny!  Excellent comedic timing.
That... and that he looks amazing shirtless.

Okay, that's my 2018 list.  Your turn.  Who's on YOUR list?
