Hug a Hot Australian

You know how some special days are a pain in the ass. All that walking in inclemate weather for causes, celebrating some obscure national event, being nice to your administrative assistant (that's harder for some than others). Well, other special days are not so tough at all.

Today is "Hug an Australian Day".


No, this one is not so difficult to get excited about. Not difficult at all. In fact this day might prove to be the best day of the week. You could say hugging an Australian is downright illuminating, enjoyable, sensuous, mood enhancing. It's good fun for all.


Hollywood loves Australia. It's one of their better chosen passions. Well done Tinseltown, keep on pilfering their goodies. How can you stop? Even less famous famous Australians are still piping hot.


What is it about the land down under? When you hug an Australian anything could happen...

You could lose your memory. You could win a dance competition. You could get caught by your dad (!) and have to introduce the hottie you're hugging. You're very likely to start lipsynching to ABBA records.

Once that Aussie hugging is in full bloom you could get physical with that hot guy at the gym, see dead people, have an adventure at sea, or win costuming Oscars.

So today consider this a virtual hug to all of our Aussie readers. If you hail from that randy movie-star birthing factory 'down under' say it in the comments and feel the love.

Nary a mention of the hottest Australian EVER?

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0051509/

For shame!

Yeah, where is that one? Not to mention Nicole. She IS Aussie Hollywood.

But yeah, so much hotness in Aussie-land... it is officially where I'm going if I ever get too sick of America to live here.

And Geoffrey Rush? Quite huggable as the Marquis de Sade, right? Right?

Kylie, Dannii, Julian McMahon, Jesse Spencer, Natalie Imbruglia...

I suspect Glenn is not going to pause for breath once he sees your post!

Oh, and P.S. you chose to visualise Russell over Eric Bana? Is there a part of you that secretly pines for a little phone mismanagement?

Ew, no Nicole and you put Toni there?

I'm not a Nicole fan and I adore Toni's acting, but I'll be the first to tell you she is plain, plain, plain. Nicole looks like she's in her late 20's and she is almost 40. She is a goddess. But I hate her acting.

NATHANIEL R said...

i have a thing for Toni Collette you see.

Adrian said...

Thanks for the love mates!

It brings a tear to this patriotic Aussie's eye to see all our national treasures.

If anyone wants to see a great Australian film, pick up Love Serenade with Miranda Otto and Rebecca Frith. You won't see two funnier yet unbelievably sad performances anywhere else.

I love Toni as well and P.S. Naomi's tits look great in that pic. Cheers!

Nate - thanks for the love all the way over from NYC to our lovely little paradise here in Oz.

Hug an Australian Day.... gotta love it!

Lyn said...

aw. I feel all appreciated (if sadly, less hot than the featured actors).

cheers to you from Sydney!

par3182 said...

we have hot footy players too. have i ever mentioned that...?

NATHANIEL R said...

ja --i figured you could better express the über hotness of the Bana. And you did.

adam k --but they have kangaroos there. so don't pack up too quickly.

rob ---i know. it's so weird that Glenn has gone silent. And no I do not want any mor--I mean I don't want any phones thrown at me.

anonymous --toni is not plain. we call it "a face with character"

Adrian, Licuria, and Lyn --big hugs!

NATHANIEL R said...

par --no i don't think i've ever heard such a thing. Like whom for example?

1. I await your hugs
2. Nat, you HAVE hugged an Australian. Do you feel special?
3. I was silent because i was sleeping and doing homework for the last 12 hours
4. Toni is awesome
5. Eric Bana is quite smokin'
6. Obviously Australia is the greatest country on earth, non? We do have the sexiest people.
7. Hugh Jackman = Sexiest Man Alive without a doubt
8. Basically search on Google for some combination of "AFL" and "hot players" and you'll get a myriad of hotness. AFL players = sexiest sportmen in the WORLD, y'all. Plus, AFL (Australian Footy) is so homoerotic. Tight shorts, constant bumping and grinding, all that sweat... if I wasn't already a supporter I'd totally follow my hometeam (Geelong) due to their supreme hotness. Robert (Licuria, from above) has a hot footy playing relative!
9. Russell was hot until 2001 and that picture is of pre-2001 so it's all good!
10. If Hugh Jackman ever makes a movie where he plays a policeman I think I'll die right then. Nat knows of my affection. ;)

(who said I wouldn't be able to shut up? lol, you were right)

OhMyTrill said...

Thank you for the Naomi mention...she is to me as La Pfeif is to you...I just get all excited thinking about her audition scene in Mulholland Dr...

adam k. said...

Ha. Ha ha. Kangaroos...

I went to australia many years ago with a student tour group thing, and one of my female friends was jumped by a kangaroo. Like, jumped on. No joke. Those things are scary... but I would still move there. Sydney Harbor = beautiful.

And I still can't get over all the hotness in these photos. Toni Collette? Plain? Um... okay...

How ironic is it that a face "with character" is referred to by many as "plain"? Aren't those polar opposites? Barbie's face is plain. Toni's face is expressive.

adam k. said...

Also, I have in fact hugged an australian! The kid directing my show right now is from australia. He is also the kind of straight boy who will voluntarily hug his gay actor friend from his show when said friend is feeling down (which is what happened like a week or two ago)... gotta love that.

Marc said...

Do we have to understand that Nicole Kidman is not a hot Aussie ?
Can you explain one thing to me Nathaniel : you never shows Kidman's body or Watts's but we get to see Ledger's or Jackman's all the time.. How come ?
You know, it's not a crime to show both male AND female bodies. In case you forgot girls are hot too. Of yource it's your site, you're the boss, but... I don't know, i just think it's ridiculous to privilege always one gender, especially because it's a site dedicated to movies.

NATHANIEL R said...

well Marc, female stars don't actually pose for topless photos frequently and even if they did i wouldn't post them because i have a no nudity policy (notice i always crop out the goodies if the men are totally naked. It's just a thing so that my site is not banned or what have you... there's plenty of porn sites out there ;)

and i thought i was being equal opportunity --HDH had lots of women. but i'll work on it? Both genders are obviously hot.

Goran said...

Do immigrants count? I've got an Aussie passport, do I get a hug? When is hug a Macedonian day? Do I qualify for that one too?

adam k. said...

Nat, are you saying Russel Crowe is not nude in that photo up there? ...cause I beg to differ.

NATHANIEL R said...

well you can't see the dangly bits
