    Of course, my standard response when people ask me why I don't have a Boston accent is that I'm not Irish or Italian.

    I still think Gerard Butler was at his hottest in the film Dear Frankie. I haven't really liked him as much in his other roles.

    Oh, God, did I start a thread drift? I haven't seen it but I heard it was wonderful.

    I really love chick flicks so I loved PS I Love You.

    I'm going to stop now.

    Listen to Henry Cavill. That accent...that voice...nom.

    You do realize this is considered the most "neutral" of the accents? That's why all the call centers in the US are here? Our boringness makes us not hot.

    I'll agree that a hard Southern "redneck" accent can be pretty unattractive, especially if you're not accustomed to it.

    However, the genteel, Southern drawl (when not overdone) can be quite .

    As for hot or not,

    Scottish, Dutch, Scandinavian, German, Russian - when I hear those, I become Jamie Lee Curtis in A Fish Called Wanda

    Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese, SE Asian, and Italian accents do nothing for me, no matter how hot the guy/girl might be.

    That was the film when I first discovered him. I don't understand why that film is underated. I also love him in RocknRolla. He's so funny in that one and hot too!

    No love for Canadian accents?

    I do.

    And Southern US - Ooh I like. And I like South African accents. There's something seriously rugged about them.

    And there seems to be this idea that redneck/trailer trash/cocky accents aren't hot. Yes they are.

    I guess it depends on whose mouth the accent is coming from.

    Case in point: Matthew McConaughey? Attractive. Larry the Cable Guy? Not so much.

    Oh, goodness, yes. Man just gets better looking as he ages.

    But his NOLA accent does make him hotter. That's an accent I do like. South Carolina is also one that can be very, very nice - it has that "genteel" sound to it that someone else had mentioned.

    Here's another thread drift. On Netflix instant watch, there's a movie from 2004 called I Capture the Castle and Cavill was pretty smokin' in that one. BTW, the movie was excellent and also stars Bill Nighy, Rose Byrne (love her), and Elliot from ET. There was actually a lot of great British actors in that one, many of them didn't become "famous" till later on.

    What? We have accents here in the Midwest?

    I find that any UK/Australian/South African accent can take a mildly attractive man and turn him into a SEX GOD.

    I worked with a man from Montreal who had a accent. He was also very attractive before he ever opened his mouth, so the accent didn't really make a difference.

    As an Australian, that's hilarious. Most Aussies have such flat sounding voices (including my own for that matter).

    Yeah, what was that one girl thinking?! Elliot or Henry Cavill?

    French and Italian accents are hot. I can't watch Top Chef without feeling frisky. German accents....not so much.

    Well, there's a huge range of "Canadian accents" of course, and if you are Canadian then "ordinary Canadian" is no accent at all.

    We listed Newfie and hoser as being non-hot accents, but actually got into a discussion about that. Newfie & hoser accents make a guy seem less cute physically, but since so many Newfies and hosers are hilarous comedians, and being funny increases a guy's overall attractiveness ...

    French-Canadian accents can be hot when they're speaking English; but when they're speaking Quebecois French it's decidedly non-hot. Quebecois French is very gutteral sounding compared to French-French, not appealing at all IMO.
