Now, everyone knows that I have an unabashed and shameless lust for Russell Crowe, but I realize he's not everyone's type. So, as a special treat for my friend Katie S., our introductory Monday Mancandy honor goes to ::::drumroll please:::: Henry Cavill.

Why He's Hawt: He looks good naked, as we saw on The Tudors, but he also looks good with clothes on. Particularly period garb, as evidenced in both The Tudors and The Count of Monte Cristo (yes, he's in there, as Albert Mondego) and Tristan & Isolde. He's also a bit of a history nerd, having said that his dream role is Alexander the Great (hawt!) and he's slated to play the next Superman, which means he's read at least one comic book (+1!!).
Bonus Hawt Points: Speaks with an English accent, can ride a horse, knows how to swordfight, does not appear to manscape, and wears leather pants without looking like a member of an 80's hair band.
Downsides: He's only 27, which -- if you're in your forties like me -- makes him just a bit young. Not young enough that I could have given birth to him, though, so he's fair game.
