Jessica Alba Is The Ideal Girlfriend

January 31st, 2006 // 17 Comments

What guy wouldn’t think Jessica Alba would be the perfect girlfriend? Although, this year, the guys didn’t think that Britney Spears would be ideal. She failed to make the list. It’s the Kfed association.

More guys want Jessica Alba for their girlfriend than any other woman, according to AskMen.com’s top 99 list for 2006. The 24-year-old actress tops the Web site’s list ranking female celebrities on their “long-term relationship material.” Alba’s career credits include “Fantastic Four,” “Honey,” “Into the Blue,” “Sin City” and the TV series “Dark Angel.”

Alba is followed by “Alfie” star Sienna Miller and the ubiquitous Angelina Jolie. The list will be posted Tuesday. James Bassil, editor-in-chief of AskMen.com, told The Associated Press the list was determined by the rankings of 2.5 million readers and by the site’s staff.

Readers of the online magazine were asked to vote according to the woman they would most want a relationship with, would consider marrying or thought best-suited to be the mother of their children. Of course, few have ever accused Alba, Miller or Jolie of being short on movie star glamour.

The rest of the top 10, in order, is Brazilian model Adriana Lima (No. 1 last year), “Access Hollywood” correspondent Maria Menounos, Charlize Theron, Jessica Biel, singer Amerie, Natalie Portman and Eva Longoria.

  1. I pick Angelina

    Yeah! Angelina #3. I knew she would make the top 5. She is the bomb! #1 on my list.

  2. Anna

    I like the article’s reference to the men choosing not just based on looks, but who they’d want to have a relationship with, marry and make “the mother of their children.” All of those things still (generally) include having sex, so the voters still just pick the girl they want to bang, but say they’d marry her to do it.

  3. Girly Girl

    I realize I am a woman, but I would’t ‘date’ Angelina. Angelina is not ‘girlfriend’ material in my book. Wild sweaty porno sex with her? Sure. F*ck ’til you can’t walk straight with her? Sure. But girlfriend???? I don’t know about all that…

    I’m gonna get my ass whooped for this- but I think that perception is what has made the whole Jen/Jolie thing interesting… Jen is the sorrority girl, the good girl, the GIRLFRIEND girl… Angelina is the goth girl, the ‘bad’ girl, the ‘other woman’ kind of girl… its the classic dilemma: Melanie Wilkes and Scarlett O’Hara. These two have just brought that into a 21st Century paradigm.

    Did I just use the word ‘paradigm’ on this blog site? Ohmygod I’m so sorry…

  4. Jess

    This list proves that men are idiots. Sienna Miller = fucking crazy. Angelina = (potential) homewrecker.

  5. ThrillKill

    …and really, what sort of masochistic idiot would want Eva Longoria for a girlfriend? Good God, the only reason I would take her home would to be to use her as a pinata at my nephew’s birthday party. Alba and Biel, I could see that. The rest would be fuck-buddies at the very best.

    Only real choice for a ‘take home to mom’ kinda girl? Reece Witherspoon. You can see her volunteering to do dishes or cut up vegies for a salad without looking forced.

  6. Ben

    Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston have the same chin. So if you want a girlfriend who will pass down the “chin” gene than they are your pick. Otherwise, it’s sexy Angelina all the way. Now that is a woman. No man can turn that away. Man! I can just picture her in the act. Lord have mercy – somebody give me a cold shower!

  7. Fugly Girl

    Let’s be real ladies……and men. We all know that men have one track minds. So date=sex, marry=sex and take home to mom=sex. They should have just left all that stupid criteria out. I mean, Ben’s comment says it all. Men have one track minds.

  8. Anna

    A big thanks goes out to Ben for validating my point. This survey was just another “Who Do You Want To Fuck The Most?” countdown that could’ve been found in Stuff, FHM, etc. They just mentioned the words “relationship” and “marry” to try to make it appear that they men who participated aren’t pigs.

  9. Ben

    Ladies, why come down on me? I am a man. I respect women. I am a nice looking guy and I like nice girls. But Angelina, as my buddies like to say, that is the home run. Landing someone like that even for one night, is like hitting a home run. Hey every man wants to be Babe Ruth just for one time for Christ sake. Angelina is that kind of girl. Sorry ladies.

  10. fifi

    What is the Maria Menounos appeal? She looks like any other reporter to me.

  11. Anna

    And that right there, dear Ben, is the point.
    Angelina may very well be the “kind of girl” you’re talking about, but she isn’t exactly the grow old together type, which is more along the lines of what that survey was looking for, as I understood it. And it’s no offense to you or the other men, because women enjoy dating someone who’s super-hot as much as you guys.
    It’s just funny that the dudes in this survey couldn’t rip their minds off the topic of sex long enough to think about what the question was really asking. I mean honestly, who on earth would really want to spend the rest of their life with Sienna Miller or Eva Longoria? You do know they’re going to be awake and probably talking a lot of the time, don’t you?

  12. ThrillKill

    Hey! I’m a guy and I can generally think with either brain. There is a time and a place for using each. As far as me and my penis are concerned, Eva and Sienna are not even in consideration. I’m not even overly fond of the fact that they breath.

    If you are talking a fun bang, yeah, Angelina might be quite the fun romp, but if you are talking relationship, this is the person I’m gonna procreate and grow old with, give me Reece with no question!

  13. Where the sistah's at?

    Where are the black women on this list besides Amerie (who is biracial)? Gabrielle Union, Jada Pinkett Smith, Beyonce? What about them? You can be assured this was a survey of white men.

  14. T.J.

    I hate to break up the Angelina Orgy, kiddies, but I have a comment about Jessica Alba:

    Jessica does have a terrific figure, granted. But I do not understand how she ranks number one on lists like this. Her face kinda bugs me. I’m not sure why it bugs me, but it does. It doesn’t strike me as a particularly pretty face. I just don’t get the Jessica appeal.

  15. Mister Z

    #1? Angelina. The looks get you first and then she is super aware. And very independent. Men like that. So she gets my vote.

  16. Jess

    T.J, does it possibly bug you because her face looks like every snotty, MEAN, rich & spoiled highschool girl you’ve ever known? She is very pretty, but that is what her face reminds me of. And you are all right about everything = sex in that survey.

  17. Andrew

    I agree that some of the names on the list were pretty obviously for sex intensive purposes only. However, I do think that you have to give us guys a little more credit. If you can’t have a good sexual relationship with your partner or you are not attracted to them then your marriage isn’t going to work. If you had to choose between a good looking vs. average looking partner, which do you pick? Certainly I DO NOT agree with a MAJORITY of the names on the list. For example: the Londoner who takes back a guy that cheated on her with his nanny. I would rather consider the once-super-goth-now-turned-UN Refugee Ambassador. Those who believe that us guys are in it for the sex, consider this: just like any female, we would like to think that the person we spend the rest of our lives with is amazingly good looking and great in bed. But on top of that we want someone we can trust. We know very little about the celebrities, but we see #1 with her spending tons of time with her boyfriend, laughing, smiling, not doing drugs and not buying countries. We like her. She seems really great to me/us. Others are changing their values to include children, adoption, or free speech. It seems that someone who has shown a great career/life changing move can spark our attention just as well as a little clevage. All I am trying to say here is that making assumptions about decisions made on askmen.com isn’t the way to assess all men. Just because someone very good looking happens to be placed #1 or so, doesn’t mean there isn’t merit. Lesson for today: 1st, sure we think about spending the rest of our lives with someone who is fantastically talented, good looking and great in bed. HOWEVER, #2 we also consider the image that the person protrays to the world (via the media, their personality and values). #3, AskMen.com is quite an extensive site which elaborates and rates actresses, etc on merits beyond their physical assests. #4, just because the survey has a lot of women that are best (or only known) for their sex appeal, doesn’t mean a lot of men (even 20% of 2 million or so is a lot) didn’t consider other qualities – and therefore voted in women like Diane Lane. #5, women rank physical attractiveness high on their list of desireable traits in a partner, so why can’t we?
