15 Smoking Hot Brits in the United Kingdom Right Now
Wands at the ready, gentlemen. Turns out our friends across the pond have an affinity for the women of Harry Potter fame. But those magical beauties aren’t only ones who made this list of the Britain’s hottest women. Maybe there’s something magical in the 300-plus days of gloom that ensures the beauty of these queen loyalists, who undoubtedly earn our undying admiration from the other side of the Atlantic.
Granted, we tend to feel a little creepy about our wands rising when we think of Emma Watson. After all, when we first started watching those “Harry Potter” movies she was straight out of grade school. But adulthood has been kind to Watson. She recently penned a deal with the high-fashion company Burberry, lending a new maturity to her public image. She’s also pulling in more dough than any actor in England. Currently, Watson is studying at the Ivy League Brown University in Rhode Island.
We really haven’t been interested in watching anyone else swordfight evil pirates lately. Keira Knightley garnered a captive American audience with her role in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy. And, yeah, it’s safe to say her career has been pretty well followed here in the US. She’s another globally–renowned and highly paid actress: without a doubt, one of the hottest women in the U.K.
Kate Beckinsale’s fame has made quite an impact here in the United States. In 2009, Beckinsale was named Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive. She’s also worked her way onto Hollywood’s A-list with roles in Shakespeare movies and a spot in the film “The Trials of Cate McCullough.”
The byproduct of unlistenable music usually isn’t this hot. We started worshiping Victoria Beckham when the “Spice Girls” brought their stomach churning gummy-pop across the pond. Somehow, we persevered and managed to keep the spotlight on Victoria. Honestly, she could play a kazoo for all we care.
Jennifer Ellison isn’t exactly a household name here in the land of cheeseburgers and light beer, but she damn well should be. Ellison has made quite an impact in the British entertainment industry as a singer, model and actress. She appeared in an adaptation of the film “Phantom of the Opera” and her pop songs continue to gain ground on the U.K. music charts.
A former Miss Great Britain, Danielle Lloyd had that honor stripped when she posed for a full spread in Playboy. The verdict is in: we think it was a good call. Lloyd is currently engaged to international soccer star Jamie O’Harra.
Her flick “G.I Joe” may not have launched Sienna Miller to the renowned acting stardom of Emma Watson or Keira Knightley, but she’s definitely enough reason to rent it. She bounced back from that minor action movie bomb with the film “Hippie Hippie Shake” and things are looking up. Even if you’re not a fan of her movies, keeping tabs on Miller’s modeling career is highly advised.
Gemma Arterton is a former BBC star launched to movie fame with her role in the Bond movie “Quantum of Solace.” The brainy brunette trained at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. She also starred alongside actor Jake Gyllenhall in the video-game inspired action movie “Prince of Persia.”
Lindsey Strutt is not only a world-renowned model, but also a staunch British and American troop supporter. She’s taken her talents to Iraq, where she spent Christmas with adoring troops serving overseas. Her fans in the U.K. have taken to calling Lindsey the “Strutter.” She’s appeared in magazines like Maxim and Loaded.
Known for her day job as a sportscaster, Kirsty Gallacher is another Maxim alumni who’s also posed in FHM Magazine. Born in Scotland, Gallacher majored in fashion journalism in college.
Kayleigh Pearson is an international glamour model who got her big break when she nailed down the win at FHM’s High Street Honey contest in 2003. Things have only gotten bigger for Pearson. She underwent breast enlargement surgery and went on to pose in Nuts and CandyCrib.
Yup, another Gemma, this one a lingerie model who has garnered a reputation for her publicized escapades with soccer players. Despite those headlines, she’s really hot and that’s enough for her admirers in England to continue to pay attention. You should too. This is one career worth following.
At just 19-years-old, Bonnie Wright has become one of the most respected young actresses in England. This London-born actress has become yet another “Harry Potter” star to captivate an adoring British crowd. Wright, who plays love-interest Ginny Weasley currently studies at London’s University of the Arts. She’s reportedly engaged to “Potter” co-star Jamie Campbell Bower.
Helena Bonham Carter
Born in 1966, Helena Bonham Carter isn’t nearly as young as her “Harry Potter” co-stars, but she’s unmistakably beautiful. We got our first widespread exposure to this actress in the movie “Fight Club.” The neurosis and beauty of her character was nothing less than hypnotizing. Of course, Bonham Carter has earned worldwide accolades for her acting career, but it’s good to see her get a little crazy again in the “Harry Potter” films.
Another model-slash actress, Karen Gillan is a household name in Britain for her work on the U.K television series “Doctor Who.” Gillan also moonlights as a model for Angela Hicks and Nicola Roberts.
