The 100 Sexiest Movie Performances of The Decade (2000-2009)

The rules: (1) Males, of course. Women lovers can make their own list. (2) Each actor's name may appear only once. So, despite the many hot movies by, say, Coco Martin, I had to pick just one. (3) The sexiness of the actor and the sexiness of the role count, but most of all, it's about the performance: the sexiness that the actor brings to the role. As for the definition of sexy?
