So, I decided for a new weekly entry, I'm going to start having a "Hottie of the Week" post, where I pick someone I think is super, super good looking at post lots of pictures in awe of their physical appearance (because who cares about how rotten of a person you are when you look so good...just kidding).
(Generally I'm not a big fan of the word "hottie," just as I'm not a big fan of being called "hot" because I feel like it can be objectifying. But I promise, this is all in good fun.)
The first "Hottie of the Week" is going to be my boy Colin Firth. I have thought he was gorgeous for-ev-er. I rooted for him in Bridget Jones...and Love Actually...and hello, he plays MR. DARCY. Automatic winner. While the 48 year old is unfortunately married, looking never hurt anyone, right?
What makes Firth even hotter is that he is committed to social justice. He is a long standing supporter of Survival International, a group which defends the rights of tribal peoples. He is also a huge supporter of the Fair Trade movement (one that I actually support myself by only buying fair trade coffee and chocolate). Didn't think you'd find hottie of the week and social justice in the same post, huh? ; ) He actually opened up an eco friendly, fair trade shop in West London, where not only do they sell fair trade goods, they also offer advice on how to make more efficient use of energy and how to live a greener lifestyle!
Last bit of info on our Hottie of the Week? When asked who the women in his life are, Firth replied, "My mother, my wife, and Jane Austen." Hot, hot, hot!
Still hot, even eating chocolate:
Still hot, even in heinous Christmas sweater (from Bridget Jones's Diary)
What do YOU all think of the hottie of the week?
AND, who are some of your picks for hottie of the week?
