Kari thinks life is a miraculous thing. As we get older we get smarter, and find out how little we know. An oxymoron? Maybe.
What Is Sexy
Sexy means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. To me it is a combination of how someone looks and who they are. Probably more of who they are. So what does sexy mean to me? Here are just a few examples:
- Good sense of humor
- Ability to laugh at self
- Likes kids and animals
Good looks are nice, but not as necessary. I have learned that the longer I know someone with the qualities above, the better looking they become. You may or may not find the following men sexy. I think they display the traits I list.

Dwayne Johnson Quotes
"I have so much love and respect for the fans. I`ll never forget where I came from. I love the business. I grew up in the business. And everyone always asks me, from Letterman [David Letterman] to Stone Phillips, what I miss about wrestling."
"I liked his ability to deal with a lot of the negativity that surrounded him. Even though he was in a world that he didn't want to be in, he still saw the bigger picture."
(on his kissing scene with Steve Carell in "Get Smart") "One of the skills I had to learn and become proficient in is kissing a man. I had never kissed a man. Will Smith did it in his movies, so did Jake Gyllenhaal, and I figured it was my time. So it was me and Steve Carell - fantastic."
"Those who are truly brave, shall never live in fear..."

Matt Damon Quotes
"Now I feel I have an unspoken deal with the paparazzi: "I won't do anything publicly interesting if you agree not to follow me."

"You've given an aging suburban dad the ego-boost of a lifetime." (On being named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2007)
“Eventually stardom is going to go away from me. It goes away from everybody and all you have in the end is to be able to look back and like the choices you made.”
"Success is not something I've wrapped my brain around. If people go to those movies, then yes, that's true, big-time success. If not, it's much ado about nothing."

Sean Connery Quotes
"I'm an actor - it's not brain surgery. If I do my job right, people won't ask for their money back."
“There is nothing like a challenge to bring out the best in man.”
"Perhaps I'm not a good actor, but I would be even worse at doing anything else."
“I like women. I don't understand them, but I like them.”
“I have a great respect for money. I know how hard it is to earn and keep, especially with our diabolical taxes in Britain. I never get over the fact that sometimes I see more money being paid for a meal than my father earned in a week.”
“Love may not make the world go round, but I must admit that it makes the ride worthwhile.”
“I’m incredibly lucky to still be around, doing all the things I want to do and getting extremely well paid for it.

I think enthusiasm and appetite are more important than anything.”
Hugh Jackman was born October 12, 1968 in Sydney, Australia. He comes from a large family...5 children to be exact. He is the youngest of the five children who were successfully raised by their father. Their mother moved back to England when Hugh was 8 years old. Youngest children are described as affectionate, people-oriented, relaxed and fun. These seem to describe Hugh Jackman also.
Hugh Jackman met his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, while filming the Australian television series, Correlli. They have been married since 1996. Hugh, a romantic at heart, personally designed his wife's engagement ring and had it transcribed with "Om paramar mainamar,” Sanskrit for “we dedicate our union to a greater source.” The two are happily married and have 2 children.
Concern for our world is a large part of Hugh Jackman. He is active in charities, one of which is a microcredit organization. He works with Muhammad Yunus, known as "The Banker to the Poor" and a recipient of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize, to ensure that the poorest people get a chance. He is currently auctioning off a day on the set and lunch with himself to benefit The New York Restoration Project. The current bid is $10,500 and bidding is due to run until Jun 10, 2009 3:00:00 PM EDT.
Hugh Jackman Quotes
"Becoming a father, I think it inevitably changes your perspective of life. I don't get nearly enough sleep. And the simplest things in life are completely satisfying. I find you don't have to do as much, like you don't go on as many outings."
"I just love making a fool out of myself. I made my living as a clown at kids' parties for about three years."
"My father is a real idealist, and he's all about learning. If I asked for a pair of Nikes growing up, it was just a resounding 'No.' But if I asked for a saxophone, one would appear and next day and I'd be signed up for lessons. So anything to do with education or learning, my father would spare no expense."
"Acting is something I love. It`s a great craft that I have a lot of respect for. But I don`t think it`s any greater challenge than teaching 8 year olds or any other career. In my life, I try not to make it more important than it is and I just hope that rubs off on the people around me."
“My private life is actually pretty dull. I’m incredibly happily married. Mine is a one-story story, so I don’t think I’m going to be hounded about my private life.”
“She is the best mother in the world. I’ve sort of fallen in love with Deb all over again in a different way in watching her be a mother. It’s not deeper than the love you had when she was just your wife. But it’s a beautiful thing to watch that lioness protective quality that comes out.”
