Reason 31: Sam Bell (Maybe Baby)
"In his latest role, however, in new comedy Maybe Baby, Hugh does take on a new appeal - and more than a few female fans have swooned as they left the cinema after preview screenings."
"Hugh plays Sam, a hard-working husband who is devoted to his wife Lucy, but more than a little unsure when it comes to the subject of having children. It’s a role that writer and comedian Ben Elton says he penned especially for pal Hugh when he adapted his hit novel Inconceivable for the big screen. The scriptwriter said: "Girls love him. Hugh is a very attractive, sexy, thoughtful man. "
"Taking your trousers off in front of an entire film crew is always rather awkward because you are so literally exposed. Joely was being very supportive, and tried to relax me, but I said `Look, I’ve only just got used to doing this kind of thing in front of one person’." Hugh Laurie
"Hugh is so sexy. I always knew there was a romantic lead deep inside him. He has deep blue eyes, he’s muscular. I’ve got him playing piano in a T-shirt with those big biceps bulging." -Ben Elton
