Helena Bonham Carter (May 26th, 1966)
If I had to say where it began, I’d probably pick Fight Club.  This discontented waif of a women I thought was just so interesting, oh and did I mention she’s British.  British and pale with this “weird” vibe they she gives off in her roles and in real life that I just find fetching.  I love how weird she is, and apart from marrying me, Tim Burton is a pretty good substitute.

I wish I could put precisely into words the nerdgasm I got when I saw she would be cast as Bellatrix Lestrange.  Thus making her one of the sexist witches to ever grace a movie screen.  And don’t get me started on her hair, the fact that it looks like you couldn’t get a comb through her hair if you tried all night (a problem I could formerly relate to); something about that I just love.  Remember, Helena, no one’s gonna harm you; not while I’m around…

Women With British Accents
Cockney, Geordie, Yorkshire, Scottish* it doesn’t matter, I love them all.  I don’t know what it is, but I find their voices fetching.  Back in 2006, I spent six weeks in London for a Study Abroad and I’m fairly certain it’s during this time that I realized my love of British women in general.  And from there my love of all things British grew: Misfits, Sherlock, my desire to live in London, my obsession with the best (worst) television show Geordie Shore, all thanks to my infatuation with the sound of a British woman’s voice.  A thing of pure beauty..

Dame Helen Mirren (July 26th, 1945)
Helen Mirren has always been a hottie.  Go check her out in Caligula or Savage Messiah, always hot and always willing to take her clothes off; two traits I love in a woman.  But not just looks, she’s smart, got a mouth like a sailor, British, and she’s an Atheist, all things I love.

But Marvin, now she’s 67!  Yeah, and?  Have you seen her in a bikini?  Easy to say that my infatuation with her really grew with those bathing suit pics.  I would be an insanely fortunate person if my wife looked as good as Helen at 67.  Young old, now then, it doesn’t matter Helen Mirren is breathtaking.

Happy Birthday, Helen!

Antonia Thomas (November 3rd, 1986)
Of the 52 to make the list, Antonia has to be the newest one to hold a place in my heart.  I should say, like most, I’d never even heard of her until I stumbled across Misfits; and oh man was I affixed to her.  Her power (spoiler) coupled with her British accent did not help in the slightest.  And the producers CLEARLY knows she’s hot and they made sure to remind us in every episode (as evidenced by the bottle sucking scene shown above).  So if you haven’t seen Misfits, check it out, because it’s a pretty decent show, and here’s to hoping Antonia makes her way across the pond because I’d really like to see her in more stuff.
