#YesAllWomen Thursday: Hollywood's Sexiest Men That Support Women's Rights

Dani Strehle

Senior Manager


With the #YesAllWomen campaign trending worldwide and it being "Thirsty Thursday," I decided to combine those two themes and make one super post tying them together. You're going to be seeing some more articles about #YesAllWomen coming from PopWrapped in the near future as I've encouraged the entire staff to share their stories and why this campaign is so important to them on a personal level. Mine will be coming soon enough, but first I am gifting you all with the hottest Hollywood guys notorious for treating women with the respect they deserve. Enjoy! gosling

Ryan Gosling

Oh, hello gorgeous. That's right ladies! Not only would it be a dream come true to even glance upon Ryan Gosling's gorgeous face and kissable lips, he would respect the hell out of you while you did it! When asked about an explicit scene in his movie Blue Valentine, wherein a woman is receiving oral sex, being scrutinized, Gosling said:
You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario, which is both complicit and complex. It's misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman's sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.
Yep. He hit the nail on the head, don't you think?

Blair Underwood

Blair Underwood is a gorgeous piece of man. When he sauntered into my life as a love interest for Miranda on Sex and the City, I took serious notice. Then the writers broke my heart into pieces when she broke up with him for the loveable but somewhat geeky Steve. Making him even sexier is this little soundbite from when Underwood defended a woman's right to choose:
Well, I'll tell you what-there are a lot of men here, but I will tell you the reason why a lot of us are here, because basically it boils down to the government or legislative body telling me what I can and cannot do in planning my own family. So, if you are going to tell a woman what to do, that woman may be my wife, that woman may be my girlfriend. That doesn't sit well with me to tell them and to tell me what I can't do with my family. So, in a nut shell, that's basically why I'm here, and that's why it's important for most of us men to be here. Because, you can't live in this world, obviously, without coming into contact with women. I mean, a woman is my mother, gave me life, gave me sisters. I have a girlfriend I love dearly. All of that comes into play. It's not about abortion being right or wrong. It's about having that choice to decide what a person should do with their own body.
I think I'm in love.

Mark Ruffalo

Mark Ruffalo is like the ultimate dream man. He's dark and handsome, intelligent, immensely talented and comes off as just an all-around wonderful guy. What makes him even more wonderful is the eloquent speech he gave when talking about his mother's illegal abortion:
When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different. What happened to my mother was a relic of an America that was not free nor equal nor very kind. My mother’s illegal abortion marked a time in America that we have worked long and hard to leave behind. It was a time when women were seen as second rate citizens who were not smart enough, nor responsible enough, nor capable enough to make decisions about their lives. It was a time that deserved to be left behind, and leave it behind we did, or so it seemed. We made abortion and a woman’s ability to be her own master a Right. That Right was codified into law. That law was the law of the land for decades. My own mother fought to make herself more than a possession; she lived her life as a mother who chose when she would have children, and a wife who could earn a living if she so chose. I want my daughters to enjoy that same choice. I don’t want to turn back the hands of time to when women shuttled across state lines in the thick of night to resolve an unwanted pregnancy, in a cheap hotel room just south of the state line. Where a transaction of $600 cash becomes the worth of a young woman’s life.
Thank you, Mr. Ruffalo. Your words are inspiring and have damn near moved me to tears.

Prince Harry

I've personally always preferred the young, freckled Prince Harry to his older brother. And while I'm sure that Diana instilled these important principles in both of her boys, this quote from Prince Harry at a Women's Rights convention has me dreaming of being a real-live princess for the first time in my life.
Thank you for showing your support for women’s rights…We know that when women are empowered, they immeasurably improve the lives of everyone around them – their families, their communities, and their countries. This is not just about women, we men need to recognize the part we play too. Real men treat women with dignity and give them the respect they deserve.
Where did I put those blasted glass slippers?

Ashton Kutcher

Did you know that Ashton Kutcher is smart? Like, really, really, really could have gone to MIT or Stanford or Yale or pretty much wherever he wanted smart? Well he is! So along with that face of an angel, he has a brilliant mind and puts it to good use standing up for women and the difference between showcasing our sexuality and making us sex toys in film. Read on...
I think there's so much that’s not said about sex in our country, even from an educational level…the one thing they teach about is how to get pregnant or how to not get pregnant, but they don't really talk about sex as a point of pleasure for women…Part of that creates a place where women aren't empowered around their own sexuality and their own sexual selves, and from a purely entertainment point of view, to create a movie with a female lead that's empowered with her own sexuality is a powerful thing.
I'm sure there are quite a few women out there who wouldn't mind showing Mr. Kutcher just how sexually empowered they are! I think I speak for most women when I say: From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Thank you to these men and the millions like them who have our backs and are standing up for our rights while so many others try to stifle them. Thank you for being MAN enough to support women.
