Sexiest Person Who's Dated Courtney Love (Kurt Aside)
Ed Norton

Why: Now single, Norton is also one of those rare actor-writer-producer-directors who seem to do all of the above well. And it was sweet when he wrote in to The New Yorker defending his then girlfriend (who, alas, repaid him by trashing his subsequent girlfriend, Salma Hayek).

Sexiest Seductress
Bebe Neuwirth

Why: This babe has legs. And she’s been using them to seduce us since 1980, when she made her Broadway debut as Sheila in A Chorus Line. Though she’ll always be remembered as Frasier’s acid-tongued wife, Lilith (why didn’t she get a Cheers spinoff like Kelsey Grammer?), her true love is the theater. She (and her legs, for that matter) picked up Tonys for her turn in revivals of Sweet Charity and Chicago. Then last year, of course, she pulled a Mrs. Robinson in Tadpole. In her latest film, Le Divorce, she plays a feisty Getty curator in hot pursuit of a De La Tour. Producer Ismail Merchant coos, “You never saw a curator as sexy, full of mischief, and charmingly chic as Bebe.” We couldn’t agree more. Just look at her, showing off those gams in a black mini-dress (Britney Spears should be so lucky at 44).
