I’d Hit: Celebrities with Receding Hairlines

by Rachel on October 18, 2011

Welcome to a new feature in which I list famous men I’d sleep with. I’m starting this feature with the category men with receding hairlines. Seriously, why do guys see this as such a major flaw? I don’t know that it’s sexy in and of itself but these dudes prove that if a guy is sexy, that his hair is receding is a non-issue.

1. Matt Lauer.

He’s at #1 because, well, he is one of the sexiest men in general…so he definitely tops this little list. Every morning I watch him and lust after him in his suit and tie…when he puts on his glasses to conduct an interview, it’s all over for me.

2. Will Arnett.

I just have a thing for him, especially now that he plays a DILF now on “Up All Night.” He’s just so damn funny in every role he plays.

3. George Eads.


4. Christopher Meloni.

Sure he looks like Burt from “Sesame Street,” but I still love him. Eric and I were watching “Wet Hot American Summer” last night, a favorite of mine, and I was loving on CM as the camp cook. If you haven’t seen him in that movie, you have to. He’s so weird but somehow kinda sexy.

5. The Rock.

I mean, I’d be terrified…actually, to be honest, I don’t know if I’d have the guts to go all the way with this one. But I’d like to think he’s a gentle giant, like he was in “Tooth Fairy.” (I assume…I wouldn’t watch that movie if it were the only one on an 8-hour flight.)

Any semi-hairless hotties to add to this list?

I actually saw Chris Meloni in a bar in Alexandria VA once! He is a little shorter than I thought he would be and he almost got into a fight! He is a good looking guy though!


2 Rachel October 18, 2011 at 9:36 pm

No way, like how short? He seems HUGE on TV!


3 Brittney October 21, 2011 at 9:21 am

I know! He does seem huge on TV, that’s why I was surprised he wasn’t very big! I think he was probably about average height/weight, it just wasn’t what I was expecting!


4 Teri [a foodie stays fit] October 22, 2011 at 10:57 am

nooooo! He can’t be short! I love him but short guys kind of skeeve me out.


5 Liz October 19, 2011 at 8:00 am

I would not want to get into a fight with Chris Meloni.

Unless it was a fight with our special happy places IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN.


6 Joni October 18, 2011 at 9:40 pm

Jeremy Piven and Jason Statham. Done and done.


7 Rachel October 18, 2011 at 9:41 pm

YUP. Good call!


8 Eunice October 18, 2011 at 9:44 pm

Interesting list! If I didn’t have a strong dislike for big-necked men I would consider the Rock. As for me, I always thought Ed Harris was really sexy, with those blue eyes and all, but now I think he’s getting a little too grandpa for me.


9 Tenecia October 18, 2011 at 9:47 pm

#3, 4, 5, Jason Statham, and Woody Harrelson (don’t judge me!) = I’d totally let them hit it!



10 Deva @ Deva by Definition October 18, 2011 at 9:58 pm

Does Patrick Stewart count?


11 Rachel October 18, 2011 at 10:03 pm

No…I think he’d top a future list of “bald men I’d sleep with” though.


12 Megan October 18, 2011 at 10:04 pm

Patrick Stewart ALWAYS counts. Every list, every time.


13 Emily Susan October 19, 2011 at 1:34 pm

I love love love Patrick Stewart! But I think he counts as completely bald.


14 Brandi October 18, 2011 at 10:16 pm

The Rock is number 1 on my list! Id go all the way and then some. Just sayin’

And I completely agree with Jeremy Piven.


15 Laura October 18, 2011 at 10:17 pm

Jason Statham for sure. My boyfriend has a man crush on him, too.


16 Bridget October 18, 2011 at 10:31 pm

Can we say Jude Law? Because some pictures it’s receding….some they’re not. Which only means it is and is carefully hidden.


17 Rachel October 18, 2011 at 11:40 pm

I considered him, but he seems like such a douche. But yes, I count his.


18 Bridget October 19, 2011 at 11:36 am

Very true….then I recommend a list called “A douche in real life but a freak in the bed” for future Hit Lists.


19 Brandy @ Let's Grab a Coffee October 18, 2011 at 10:39 pm

Christopher Meloni is such a good choice!!

I’d also go for Vince Vaughn.


20 [SMASH] October 19, 2011 at 10:05 am

Oh yes, gotta add Vince to the list. Yum.


21 Chandra @ShiftC October 24, 2011 at 10:44 am

yes! Vince Vaughn!


22 Rachael, Really. (@rachaelreally) October 29, 2011 at 2:15 pm

Vince Vaughn from Jurassic Park 2 … the Vince of these days is a little too porky for my liking.


23 Samantha M. October 18, 2011 at 11:45 pm

He might count more for the “bald man” list, but Stanley Tucci. I never really dug him until the 1-2 punch of “Julie & Julia” and “Easy A”. He’s so relaxed, confident, and funny, which just makes him INCREDIBLY sexy to me. Rowr.

I agree on all counts except George Eads. He never blew my skirt up. *shrug*


24 [SMASH] October 19, 2011 at 10:06 am

Stanley Tucci is THE MAN. Love him. We like movies with him… Call it the Tooch Factor. He could get it.


25 Stephanie October 18, 2011 at 11:47 pm

The Rock is one of my forbidden lusts. I love him!


26 Heather October 19, 2011 at 12:07 am

I LOVE The Rock (or Dwayne Johnson, whatever he wants me to call him is fine). None of my friends get it, but he is just so handsome! For starting off as a wrestler, he’s transitioned into that leading man role pretty well. Oh, that smile/smirk just does me in. And Rach, his teeth are so white! You guys could compare teeth-whitening tips.


27 Lia October 19, 2011 at 2:41 am

Rachel, I love you, but this post just seems so out of character for the blog. Usually you provide some thoughtful insight on life, either yours or life in general – with a unique or completely relatable perspective on a common problem. But this is not unique at all! These are celebrities. They are hot. End of story.


28 Rachel October 19, 2011 at 3:37 pm

I guess it is out of character because I don’t talk about celebs much, but I thought of it more as “unconventional things I think are sexy with celebrity examples.” I base my blog on the things I talk to my friends about, and sometimes we talk about fluff, you know? But I do honestly appreciate the feedback and if people don’t like it, I definitely won’t do it again!


29 Rachel L October 20, 2011 at 11:53 pm

I really liked this post. Not sucking up. Just saying.


30 melissanibbles October 19, 2011 at 4:15 am

I feel like men losing their hair get a bad rep. They can’t help it. I actually find it attractive, especially if they have a little scruff to go along with it.


31 KB October 19, 2011 at 6:28 am

Anderson Cooper, even though his hairline is more thinning than receding, and he’s gay.


32 Rachael, Really. (@rachaelreally) October 29, 2011 at 2:17 pm

I think my vagina just cried a little.


33 Dori October 19, 2011 at 7:42 am

Yes to Chris Meloni on WHAS. So yes. I never thought he was hot until I saw that movie. And I’m with you on loving everything Will Arnett does, although I have not watched his new show.


34 Aly October 19, 2011 at 8:16 am

Landon Donovan. I’m still really into guys with good hair but Landon is my exception.


35 [SMASH] October 19, 2011 at 10:07 am

While I don’t find him attractive, I appreciate you suggesting a soccer player! :)


36 Stephanie @ LoveLaughterLight October 19, 2011 at 9:20 am

The Rock is the ONE for me! I’ve lusted after him for…forever. *sigh* He has kind eyes and a fabulous smile.


37 [SMASH] October 19, 2011 at 10:03 am

Yes, I agree with this category and these fellas. Loving Will Arnett (as usual) in Up All Night. And Matt Lauer could most definitely get it.


38 Meg October 19, 2011 at 10:33 am

I love me some Matt Lauer!


39 Alli October 19, 2011 at 11:52 am

STABLER FTW. They filmed an episode of SVU at my college my freshman year and I ditched my classes for two days to follow production around campus. Nope. Not creepy and sad at all. I also can’t bring myself to watch the new season because he’s not on it.

Also The Rock. I never thought he was hot until I saw Get Smart….and then I got it. Those suits. OMG.

I’d also like to add Michael Fassbender to this list, if you don’t mind.


40 Sole Matters October 19, 2011 at 12:45 pm

Ohh Matt Lauer! There’s something about a man in a suit and tie…throw on some glasses and cologne? IM ALL OVER IT! The Rock is sexy too. I want to lick his teeth.


41 Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic October 19, 2011 at 1:14 pm

Jesse Williams (Dr. Avery from Grey’s Anatomy) – I think he has a receding hairline…
And Jude Law!


42 Natalie October 19, 2011 at 3:20 pm

Ladies, ladies…Prince William anyone?


43 Rachel October 19, 2011 at 3:33 pm



44 Kristin October 19, 2011 at 6:36 pm

Josh Lucas would be close to the top of my list! And Christopher Meloni would be right after :)


45 Holly October 20, 2011 at 9:05 am

For shame. How did Matthew McConaughey not make this list?!


46 Nicole @ Giraffelegs October 22, 2011 at 10:56 am

I’m sending this to my mom…The Rock is her celebrity crush and she insists that she had to turn down his marriage proposal because she already had 4 kids.

ew mom.


47 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 31, 2011 at 10:30 am

Matt Lauer? Amen to that, sister.


48 Carol November 9, 2011 at 4:05 pm

Definitely Jason Statham. Also from recent pictures Kelly Slater is going bald. Do Not Care at all, THE MAN IS HOT.
