back to article Megan Fox not world's sexiest woman: Official

It's official: Megan Fox is merely the second most sexy woman in the world, according to FHM's annual analysis of just who its readers consider the pick of international females. For the second year running, the Transformers "actress" must bow to Girls Aloud warbler Cheryl Cole, as must Victoria's Secret model Marisa Miller, …

    I never thought Megan Fox was #1

    I wouldn't kick her out but I never thought Megan was #1 but Cole definitely is not in the top 100 for me.

      Ugh, I gotta go along with the AC on this one. I would not throw out Megan Fox, mostly because she reminds me of Tea Leoni circa "Bad Boys." I did not know who Cheryl Cole was until this article, and I am still a bit meh on the issue.

      Now, throw me an Alyssa Milano or a Billie Piper, and I am all there. (Of course, I suspect my friends from the other side of The Pond will probably help me out if my BP fascination is unhealthy.)

    Kristen Stewart???

    Sorry, but this entire poll must be called into question if Kristen Stewart was anywhere in the running.

    1. Sarah Bee (Written by Reg staff)

      Re: Kristen Stewart???

      Kristen Stewart was bound to be in there because all the Twilight fans co-ordinate to vote for her. That's how she got that best newcomer BAFTA too. She has the grace to be a bit embarrassed about it. I feel a bit bad for her.

      Anyway, she is kind of sexy in a stroppy smudge-eyed teenage sort of way. She always looks like she's just fallen out of a shooting gallery.

      1. Marcus Aurelius

        You mean

        There are male Twilight fans?

          Male Twilight fans, yes. Straight male Twilight fans, no.

        Is this some sort of jargon...

        If the esteemed Moderatrix will excuse my (cough) innocence is: "She always looks like she's just fallen out of a shooting gallery." some sort of exotic, erotic or feminine jargon that I've missed out on. The mind boggles...

        I thought this poster summed up the whole twilight situation in a different light:

        As to Ms Cole nee Tweedy I've often thought that she manages to be very pretty in a very not-sexy way. Its more like looking at a very attractive relative, than someone oozing sexuality, or even showing it. (Oh dear did I write that out loud). Rather like Rachel Stevens has always been and who's also in the 100.

        Ms Hilton for several very obvious reasons.

    Cole is okay, but...

    Even the L'Oreal shampoo advert rapidly voiced over most of her 'vocal talent' in their advert with a more easy to understand bloke. Perhaps subtitles would have been an option?

    That Megan Fox will be crying herself to sleep tonight at the loss, and lovely Cheryl Cole will be celebrating but will still be crying after all the emotion of the X-Factor finals.

    The Olsen twins, Hermione Granger and an odd question ...

    I stopped reading FHM when the Olsen twins and that Hermione bod from Harry Potter started appearing in the charts.

    And here's my question: how exactly is dust 'sexy', as in "coughing in her sexy dust"? Are the readers confused as to whether they were voting for world's sexiest woman or world's sexiest dust? Or is it just the talentless hacks churning out cliche after cliche at FHM?

    I just had a look at the top ten. Who on earth thinks Cheryl Cole is sexy?????? She is right ugly. Victoria Coren is probably the best, closely followed by Rachel Riley (Countdown). Even Natalie Cassidy is a sex goddess compared to Cheryl Cole. What about the bird from Bang Goes the Theory? She is lovely. There are more that are not in the top 50 that are more beautiful than Cheryl Cole. I have seen women in the street that are more beautiful than Cheryl Cole.

      Indeed, Rachel Riley is hotness incarnate. It's a shame really because I never look at the letters now until the clock has already started, so it's really affected my game.

      And let us not forget Amy Pond, I mean, er, <googles> Karen Gillan.

      Mind you, favouring a Countdown girl and a Dr Who assistant *might* just mark me out as a nerd.

    Re:gone blind

    I'm (genuinely) blind, using computer through synthetic speech output, and I wouldn't touch Cole with a barge pole. I heard her voice along with the rest of Girls Aloud on one of Chris Moyles' shows and none of their speaking voices appeal to me in the least. I'm not gay but from voices I'd sooner snog Allid or Scott Mills than any of that bunch.

    I stopped taking the FHM 100 seriously when SMG was elected back in the early 2000s. Buffy girl? Black leather corset? Trying to be "sexy"? ROTFLMAO!!! Pretty, maybe, but world #1? NO WAY!

    Anyway Cheryl Cole is a convicted thug and for me average looking at best. If we're talking girl bands - Sarah Harding (yummy for a blonde) or Frankie Sandford. Page 3 girls - Peta Todd or Vikki Blows. Actors - Caroline Catz or Clare Holman. Even Megan Fox if I really must. But Cheryl need not apply.
