Latest Movie Hotties Headlines

Face Off: Gemma Arterton vs. Emma Watson

06.17.2013by: Droz

Diane Lane pretty much obliterated her competitor Amy Adams by an 18 to 8 vote in last week's Face Off. I'm kind of glad you guys made that happen. As much as I love Amy, it did feel wrong to be going against Diane, one of the great passions of my life. So thanks for that.

We've got a couple of movies opening in the next two weeks starring two particularly beloved British beauties. This week it's the high school theft ring drama THE BLING RING starring Emma Watson and next week has vampire stripper movie BYZANTIUM starring Gemma Arterton. These are two formidable hotties with tons of fans. Yet which British hottie headliner are you more taken with? Let's decide.

Beauty

That boy cut Emma got after her HARRY POTTER run ended did a lot to ruin my respect for her looks. Girl had a boyish quality to her already, but that hair only made it worse. She's since grown it out, which has helped feminize her more and sometimes makes her look rather beautiful. Then there are other times, usually when she's sans make-up, when her boyish quality comes back. It's the juxtaposition of those two aspects of her looks that leaves me torn. I like the first one a lot. Not being a creepy guy with a van or a Catholic priest makes the 12-year-old boy version of her do very little for me.

There are plenty of things to love about Gemma's beauty. Those eyes, those lips, her beautiful skin, her cute little freckles, the fact that her face changes with the lighting - it's all wonderful stuff. But here's my favorite thing about Gemma's beauty - she doesn't need a lick of make up to be beautiful. In fact, I think my favorite way to look at Gemma is when she goes minimal with her make-up. The more natural she looks, the more enamored I become with her. You have to honor that kind of beauty, because we don't see it all that often.

Body

Nothing wrong with Emma's body as far as fitness goes. She doesn't have a weight problem, nor is she anorexic. In fact, Emma's had some damn fine body moments, one of which we honored last week in the way of those candids from a couple years back of her in that pink sports bra thing. Very hot. So even if her face is a little boyish, the rest of her is just fine. The fact that she's second here is merely my preference for Gemma's more curvier frame. Your results may differ.

Gemma's body goes through shifts. She might be quite trim the way you see her above. Or she can get a little thicker and sport some lovely curves as she's currently doing. I happen to like all her various iterations. That 5'7 frame of hers adapts very well to whatever condition she she chooses to be in. She's like a sexy shape-shifter. I can't wait to see what form she takes on next.

Hotness

We're a couple years removed from her wizardry exploits, but her time as a kid's movie phenomenon is still affecting her hotness for me. The fact that there's cinematic documentation of her not-so-distant romps as a little kid makes me uneasy when attempting to appreciate the admittedly established woman of today. She needs to do more to make me forget about the past. She's off to a good start with THE BLING RING. Do more stuff like that, Emma. Then I can talk seriously about your hotness.

No question on this one. Gemma's hotness secretes from her pores, radiates from her eyes and wafts into the air as the most potent pheromone ever. She doesn't even have to try or do anything special to make that happen. She can bear any number of expressions, assume any sort of mood, be in any kind of situation - the result is still the same. I desire her with a desperate, aching yearning that very few hotties can match.

Career

While Emma's time at Hogwarts might not have done her any favors in the hotness department (at least, not for me), it has done wonderful things for her career. She's in a very special class of hotties now who bear a particularly large following of devotees thanks to an iconic role. She joins the ranks of hotties like Carrie Fisher, Scarlett Johansson or any of the others who have played characters especially beloved of geeks and geek-friendly folks. Only time will tell if she can avoid the inevitable threat of typecasting others in her place have endured. Emma's still young and ambitious enough. I think she can do it.

Gemma has made an attempt a time or two to play the kind of roles Emma had the good fortune to get early on. Unfortunately, it hasn't worked as well for her. I love to just look at Gemma, so I can enjoy practically anything she does regardless of its quality. Still, even if her mere presence is sufficient to entertain me, it doesn't cloud my mind to the fact that she's made a few stinkers. She's still getting herself out there though, which is good enough for me.

Gemma

Look at that face, those eyes. How could anyone not become utterly, hopelessly, irretrievably bedazzled by Gemma? Of course, I speak as one who was long ago caught up in her web of hotness, so I'm clearly biased. That's one inescapable trap I choose to revel in. She can extract the life fluids from my body any time she likes.

Just one man's opinion. What are your thoughts?

Emma Watson

I'm only a year or two older than Emma Watson, so I can differentiate between the child she was, and the woman she is now. With that in mind, Emma Watson wins hands down. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate Gemma Arterton's nude work, and that's a big point in her favor, not to mention she is really hot. However, Emma Watson is damn near perfect. She has a sexy voice and accent, damn near perfect body(what she has shown anyway), and she can look fierce and sexy, or cute and pretty, when ever she

The 4 years gap between the two matters at this age

It probably wouldn't matter as much if Emma Watson hadn't played in the Harry Potter movies for so long but the fact is, she can still play a teenager convincingly and Gemma, who already has a few sexualized parts on her resume, cannot. It makes them very hard to compare.

Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson

I think the internet in general speaks for itself. Emma Watson wins.
You can go almost anywhere on the internet, and Emma Watson gets brought up even when she's not the original topic. She's as potent as religion and politics. So even if she doesn't win this particular contest on Joblo.com, she wins the internet battle.
She gets my vote regardless of all that. I've always liked her.

Gemma Arterton

I agree that Emma's childhood past is a little too close for me to evaluate her as a woman. Plus, as I've mentioned before, I've met Gemma and she's a sweetheart. That clinches it for me.

Gemma!

While Emma is a beautiful woman, I've never thought of her as a sex symbol. She's like the little sister of your best friend that you've known for years and suddenly she's grown and hot. Gemma, on the other hand, exudes sex appeal and seems more like the prototypical sex symbol. Just my opinion.

Emma Watson

You make some valid points, but I have to disagree with your hotness review. She's definitely grown up since (even during) Harry Potter and I don't see how that holds her back at all.

This is a tough one. Gemma has a great body but having seen The Bling Ring just a few days ago, I have to give it to Emma Watson. She looks amazing and I like her tight body a lot too.

Weirdly enough, even though I kinda agree with each of your individual points, I still think I prefer Emma just a bit more. Both are fine specimens, however. The real winner here is us.

I'm gonna give this to Arterton. She's a very effortlessly sexy woman. Not being a Harry Potter fan, I didn't really get what all the fuss about Emma Watson was, but after seeing The Perks of Being a Wallflower, I totally get the appeal. At the end of the day though, if we're talking hotness, Arterton wins out.

Yep, I agree with Droz

Gemma wins this Face Off. It would be a fairly close battle, especially with Watson's R-rated turn in This Is The End. Still there's something just crazy hot about Arterton.

I would give Watson all except for Hotness, but a couple more years removed from the Potter films and I think she'll take that as well.

AT first I didn't get why they faced off, but yes they are both British lol. As much as I adore Emma Watson & seeing her grow from playing Hermoine, she is still far too young to be picked as hotter than someone else.She has plenty of years & a career ahead of her still to come. So for that reason I picked Gemma, who is hot in every possible way.

Well I 'm not pretty sure both girls fight in the same category except for the the indeniable fact that they are from Great britain. We have a thin 23 years old versus a 27 years bombshell with a body that cannot be compared to Watson's. Talking careers, Gemma worked in many productions while Emma was mostly in the HP movies. I'd go with Miss Arterton, definitely. She looks like a woman, not a teenage cutie.
