Winter is really the perfect time to watch a sexy movie. Think about it: it's cold outside, rainy, and grey — maybe you're even snowed in — and all you have with you is a movie and a cozy blanket. Of course, winter movies (as in, films that take place during the winter) tend to be released during that season, which, coincidentally, is prime Oscar season. And that means that movies released in the winter aren't always as sexy as you might hope them to be. That said, some sexy movies fall through the cracks, and these are the 11 sexiest winter movies, perfect to watch on a snowy night.
Let's be real: part of what makes winter movies so sexy is the snow. Snow has this magical ability to make everything more romantic because it's beautiful and it has a silencing quality to it. Everything is quieter in the snow, more intimate. The romantic idea of a couple being the only two people in the world actually becomes a reality when snow falls — at least in the movies. So, get under a warm blanket, grab a cup of tea and get ready to fall head over heels in love with these 11 sexy winter movies.
Snow, true love, and fate — what more could you ask for?
Cold Mountain is a tough war drama, but I think fans will agree that the sexytimes between stars Nicole Kidman and Jude Law make up for all the doom and gloom.
A classic winter movie, Love Actually isn't explicitly sexy, but I dare you to watch Hugh Grant dance around an empty mansion and tell me you aren't into it.
4'Pride And Prejudice'
BBC's Pride and Prejudice isn't a movie, but the miniseries just feels like a cozy night in and a warm mug of tea. In other words, it's perfect entertainment for a night indoors, and features an impressive, wet Colin Firth scene you don't want to miss.
5'Bridget Jones' Diary'
Bridget Jones' Diary is both completely cringeworthy and incredibly sexy at the same time. Bonus: if you watch this after Pride and Prejudice, your feelings for Mr. Darcy will consume your soul — in a good way.
Dr. Zhivago is known as one of the most romantic films in movie history, and that's just going off of the incredible coats.
Again, not particularly wintery, but the elaborate sets and freezing water definitely make Titanic feel pretty winter-themed. As for the sexy, look no further than stars Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Brothers is an intense family drama, but there are a few sexy scenes between Natalie Portman and Jake Gyllenhaal that definitely bring the heat to this winter movie.
Crimson Peak is an insanely beautiful gothic romance perfect for a sexy winter's night. (Oh, and Tom Hiddleston shows his butt in it, so, there's that.)
Thick coats, Russian drama, and a whole lot of forbidden love, Anna Karenina is almost a winter wonderland. If only it wasn't for the oppressive social norms pressed onto women that turn the film into a tragic love story...
11'Love & Other Drugs'
Love & Other Drugs isn't 100 percent a winter film, but the main characters, Jamie (Gyllenhaal) and Maggie (Anne Hathaway) spend a great deal of time inside. It's almost as if they were trying to escape a chill, and not just having sex all the time.
Winter never looked so hot.
