Who's your Secret Movie Star boyfriend? For a while, John Cusack held that lofty position on my personal lust chart (and probably yours, too) thanks to his role as Lloyd Dobler in Say Anything. Then in 1992, A River Runs Through It came out, and Brad Pitt leapfrogged over Cusack -- what can I say? I'm just a sucker for a man who knows how to fly fish (or at least, a man who can look that good while acting like he knows how to fly fish). So Cusack faded out for awhile and Pitt was on top (so to speak), until Cusack, out of nowhere, knocked Pitt aside and made it back into the top position with High Fidelity in 2000.

But alas, Brad and John, I'm afraid that over the past couple years, you've both been supplanted by two men who have that special something -- the sexy geek factor. Brad and John have had to move down the chart a couple notches to make way for Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow (who, not coincidentally, wrote and produced the latest Geeks-as-Good-Guys flick Superbad, which opens next weekend). Most of the women I know (and a lot of our female readers) instantaneously grok the sex appeal of guys like Apatow and Rogen, but I know more than a few good-looking men who still just don't get it, who honestly find it unbelievable that guys like that would ever get sex at all, much less with an attractive woman.

So for you guys who still don't get why women like me find guys like Rogen and Apatow hotter than an Oklahoma sidewalk in August, here's your tutorial. Read it well, then go watch some old episodes of Freaks and Geeks, follow that up with 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up, and then, for added fun, top it off by taking a date to see Superbad next weekend. Trust me -- take a woman to see any film in which Rogen and Apatow have had a hand, and your sex-appeal factor will go up accordingly. And don't forget to wear your polo shirt buttoned all the way up, pick your date up on your bike instead of your sports car -- and get your nipples waxed.
