We’ve seen the top ten sexiest women, so it would be a little biased not to have something here for the ladies too. Just as there is some agreement on who the hottest babes on the screen are, there’s also a lot of agreement as to who the manliest studs are. Here then we will look at the top ten sexiest men based on countless-count downs around the net.
10 Henry Cavill
Not long ago no one had heard of Henry Cavill, but now he is starting to find his way onto many lists of the top ten sexiest men. His breakthrough role was in the Tudors, but his stardom and sex appeal look set to reach fever pitch as he prepares to play the lead role in 2013’s Superman.
9 Tom Cruise
He may not quite have it any more, but in his hey-day Tom Cruise could have topped many of the top ten sexiest men. He’s got a chiseled jaw and very boy-ish looks and these all help to ensure that he is one of the stereotypically good looking men.
8 David Tennant
David Tennant, like Johnny Depp and Downey Jr, had the good fortune to be cast as a highly attractive character who was swooned after by many women. It was David Tennant who really brought the sex appeal to Doctor Who however, and his intense charm and scholarly looks means he’s still highly fancied as one of the top ten sexiest men even now that Matt Smith has taken the helm.
7 Orlando Bloom
Acting opposite Johnny Depp is no mean feat, but Orlando Bloom’s sturdy jaw and boyish good looks made him up to the task and meant that female fans of the original Pirates of the Caribbean were split down the middle. He also provided some eye candy for the Lord of the Rings trilogy where he was perfectly suited to play one of the beautiful elves.
6 Eric Bana
Eric Bana looks almost like an amalgamation of the worlds 10 ten sexiest men – part Patrick Swayze, part Tom Cruise, part someone else, here’s a guy who has classic good looks and charm to match. People started to stand up and take notice of his sex appeal when he started stealing attention away from Brad Pitt in Troy.
5 Taylor Lautner
Taylor Lautner is one of the top ten sexiest men if you ask teenage girls around the planet. Cast specifically in order to be able to compete with Robin Pattinson, it’s his chiseled abs and impressive lats that gave him the edge he needed.
4 Brad Pitt
Like Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt has lost some of his appeal with age, but this doesn’t stop him from topping a lot of lists of the Top Ten Sexiest men – or from marrying Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Anniston (now that’s a testimonial!). This may have something to do with the six pack he’s sported for much of his career…
3 Robert Downey Jr
Robert Downey Jr is not only one of the top ten sexiest men because of his looks (which are no doubt impressive) but also because of his confidence, charm and swagger which all ensure that he stands out from the crowd. Then there’s the fact that so many women want to look after him and turn his life around (though actually he seems to have already done that fortunately). To see his charm on overdrive, check out his role as Tony Stark in the film Iron Man.
2 Robert Pattinson
Robert Pattinson is a with some of the most chiselled-yet-femine features ever on film, and this made him perfect for the role of Edward Cullen from the Twilight series. Immortal, ancient, leaned and completely devoted to the woman he loves – this move ensured that roughly 90% of the female population fell in love with him overnight.
1 Johnny Depp
There are many pretenders and candidates for the top ten sexiest men, but almost unanimously women agree that Johnny Depp tops them all. Johnny Depp is a man that some women describe as ‘beautiful’ and who has had to choose unconventional roles as pirates, mad men and monsters in order to avoid being typecast as a ‘pretty boy’. It sort of backfired though as many women actually prefer him when he’s dressed as a pirate…
