Ah, the perm. A remnant of ’70s and ’80s “fashion” that we can be glad to have left behind. But have we really let go of the perm? With Bradley Cooper sporting an impressive man-perm in American Hustle recently, a nostalgia has been sparked for the admittedly stupid, but strangely endearing, hairstyle.
They’re hot, they’re hard, and they run on iOS 5 or higher. Yes ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking about robots! Our beautifully designed A.I. friends have spent decades heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. Spike Jonze‘s film Her will be opening wide in a short while, and it promises to give us even more impure thoughts about machines.
What’s hot, hard, and runs on Windows XP or higher? It’s robots of course! Our artificially intelligent friends have been heating up screens both large and small with their lab-crafted good looks for decades. They may not have feelings, but then again we’ve always been attracted to emotional unavailability. From Weird Science‘s Kelly LeBrock and Jude Law in A.I. to Jeri Ryan in Star Trek: Voyager and even that Svedka Vodka ad, you don’t have to be well versed in C++ or QBasic to appreciate the sizzling appeal of these machines!
Ridley Scott’s latest epic Prometheus opens wide today, starring Michael Fassbender as hunky android David. We haven’t seen it yet, but we think he’s definitely in the running for one of the hottest robots in pop culture history. But there are so many to choose from! Check out the gallery below for our list of the 20 sexiest robots of all time. With hot bots like these, who needs humans? Did we miss any? Disagree with our ranking? Let us know in the comments!

While that lawsuit from Steven Seagal‘s “sex slave” has dredged up plenty of other stories about the action star’s way with the ladies (including Jenny McCarthy being asked to strip at an audition for Under Siege 2), few of the women in his life—and there have been a few—have come forward to give their two cents. While admitting she was “not surprised” by the allegations, ex-wife Kelly LeBrock refused to tell TMZ “anything specific” because of the three children they had during their ten year marriage. However, more may be forthcoming. “I have many shocking things to say about Mr. Seagal which will be known soon when my book comes out.” Apparently, bringing up their kids just meant she just wouldn’t give up the dirt for free.
Maybe the lack of women joining Kayden Nguyen in the accuser’s chair has something to do with Seagal’s aggressive legal attack on his former “personal assistant.” The actor is not only filing to have her suit moved to arbitration and accusing her of breaking a confidentiality agreement, but asking her to pay his legal fees, guaranteeing a hefty price if he’s found innocent (Nguyen hasn’t filed criminal charges against Seagal despite describing multiple attempted assaults). Still, at least one new accusation has followed this scandal. According to TMZ, the Glimmer Man has made several of his assistants remove his shoes upon request—though thankfully, not his socks.

As a kid, one of the most indelible commercials of the 80s was Kelly LeBrock‘s Pantene ad where she told those of us of sub-par attractiveness, “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.” For years that phrase haunted us (and probably her) because it was true; LeBrock was gorgeous, full-lipped and the epitome of the ideal woman in several films including 1985’s Weird Science.
Not to be a total a-hole, but after seeing LeBrock at the Academy of Magical Arts Awards this weekend, it’s pretty safe to say we no longer hate her. Don’t get us wrong, we still think she’s an attractive woman, it’s just that she appears to be a collagen-filled, Absolutely Fabulous version of her former self. Weird science indeed.
