JON BON JOVI
Rock Star, 50

Pre-Fame Name: John Francis Bongiovi Jr.

Sweet Story: Married his high school sweetheart, Dorothea, during a 1989 tour.

Secret Admirer: Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, who shared a 2006 Grammy with him for "Who Says You Can't Go Home." She confesses: "I was obsessed in junior high with a certain pair of leather pants he wore, but it's actually Jon's brain that makes him sexy."

Who Else Likes Him for His Brain: President Barack Obama, who in 2010 appointed Bon Jovi to serve on the White House Council for Community Solutions, which advises the president on how government, businesses, nonprofits and citizens can work to meet community needs.

SAMUEL L. JACKSON
Actor, 63

Towering height, perfect skin, distinguishing laugh lines — that's how film director Kasi Lemmons describes Jackson. Lemmons has seen those versatile good looks up close, directing Jackson, now featured in TV advertising for iPhone, in The Caveman's Valentine and Eve's Bayou. "His look is ageless, it was even when he was young," Lemmons says of the highest-grossing actor of all time (so says Guinness World Records). And the Tennessee native's shaved head? "He doesn't need hair — and there aren't many men you can describe that way. He's got so many personas, yet he's always Sam: a down-to-earth guy who can stop a crowd."

YO-YO MA
Cellist, 56

The world-famous, Paris-born, Harvard-educated Ma, a married father of two, began playing the cello at age 4.

Q: What makes a person sexy?

A: It's deportment, comportment, grace, spunk and character. Age is not a factor.

Q: What's your best feature?

A: Probably my mischievousness. I can't stay serious for too long. I'm basically up to no good.

Q: What don't you like about your looks?

A: My hair. My office mates say I have this get-up-and-go look. People are constantly fixing it, because it stands up in odd ways.
