Interview magazine picks decade's most beautiful

testing captions

We in the media continue to gorge ourselves on year and decade end lists of the best and the worst of just about everything. Interview magazine joined the fray this week with their picks for the 20 most beautiful people of the past decade.

Among the pretty picks are Zac Efron, Colin Farrell, Chace Crawford and Natalie Portman.

Ashley Greene and Robert Pattinson both made the list, though Kristen Stewart was noticeably absent (pouting isn't cute?).

No Angelina Jolie or Brad Pitt on the list either, but Tom Brady and Kate Moss both made the cut.

We did notice a lack of couples (and ex-couples)  gracing the inventory.

There were two Reese Witherspoon exes, Ryan Phillippe and Jake Gyllenhaal, but no Reese. Ashton Kutcher made it, but Demi Moore didn’t. Scarlett Johansson was there but no Ryan Reynolds, and we have to admit we were surprised to see Javier Bardem without his significant other, the very beautiful Penelope Cruz.

    When you say "beautiful", it should be natural, and didn't undergo plastic surgery. A lot of celebrities had it, so those people listed should be asked first if they have the natural beauty that we are talking about.

    I got a serious question, if you don't mind.

    What's the medis description of beautiful? Looks? Attractiveness? Physical? I mean, do they have to look good with a lil spice or style, or they have to be pimps or players? There's a difference.

    Because based on those people mentioned, it seems a balance of both. Do you have to be a badass? Cool? Spontaneous? What are the qualifications? I'm sure everyone agrees on the selection on who is picked or not but when we think "beautiful", the first comes to mind is the physical attributes we have about one person's qualities. In other words, "Damn! She's too fine." See what I'm saying?

    Everybody can relate to that and to prove my case, look at the comments here. Is eight negative feedback or positive and guess what? In counteracts with one's assesment as pretty or cute! Ha!! I just thought I'd point that out.

    But I do think Scarlet Johansen is hot, that is all

    Penelope Cruz is so not attractive. I won't watch a movie with her in it because her look, her voice, everything about her just not attractive and you can barely understand what she is says. It's so annoying.

      I so very much agree. She is not attractive. She's quite creepy. I have never watched a movie with her in it and never will. I can't believe she makes these most attractive lists.

    Actually, The beginning of the year starts a 0. Like 0 – 1 is the first year. So the count goes from 0 – 9 being a decade.

    Bill B asks "Why a decade list when only 9 years have elapsed? 2010 is the final year of the decade." While this is true, the reason is because people erroneously count 2000 (rather than 2001) as the first year of the decade, when 2000 was really the last year of the prior decade/century/millenium. This is a battle you can't win.

    i think that most people who feel someone is "over-rated" or "not so talented" or doesn't deserve the respect that they have obtained is only upset because they aren't getting any attention that they have sadly thought they themselves deserve. Most people who spend time bringing down another individual really has no class. Beyonce and whoever in the spotlight are there because they worked hard to get there. So stop taking out time to try to bring someone else down and work on yourself. Obviously you desire to be where she is and you can't. So it really says more about you than the subject you are trying to drag in the mud. For 2010 everyone just need to stop with the hate and work on their goals. And who knows, maybe one day you will be in the spotlight with Beyonce. lol
