CHRIS PRATT HAS INSANE ABS
The actor (with his enviable midsection) has been on many people's lips leading up to the Sexiest Man Alive reveal. Every year, there's tons of buzz as readers/bloggers/anyone with eyes and a pulse tries to predict who'll make the cover. Those who had money on Pratt were half right (hey, he is on the cover). And his body, which he revealed in that infamous gym selfie, isn't the only reason we love him, but it is one. A big one.

IDRIS ELBA CAN MAKE US WEAK WITH ONE LOOK
For those who bet on Idris Elba – well, we can't really blame you. Sure, he's earned praise for The Wire, Mandela and Luther, but let us not forget Obsessed, the movie that won over fans if not critics. And it's all about those eyes. Only a gaze like his could drive Ali Larter's crazed stalker character to the brink of insanity. Years after watching that movie for the first time and we're still feeling a little unstable.

PRATT LOOKS JUST AS GOOD CLOTHED AS SHIRTLESS
If there was one promotional tour we never wanted to end, it was Guardians of the Galaxy. Whether Pratt was in light blue, dark blue, black, gray or cross-stitched suits, we couldn't get enough of him dressed to the nines.

ELBA CAN PLAY A BAD BOY AND A GOOD GUY
And he can do both very, very convincingly.

IDRIS'S WORKOUTS ARE NO JOKE
What's better than a buff, sweaty, shirtless Idris Elba photo? A buff, sweaty, shirtless Idris Elba video. When the actor posted a take-no-prisoners clip on Instagram to show how he gets those pecs and biceps (hint: pushups, lots and lots of pushups), we cancelled our plans, sat back and watched it on loop.

ELBA COULD BE BOND, JAMES BOND
If the part of 007 is based on how good he looks in a tux, this man cannot be denied. Apparently, he wouldn't deny us the pleasure either. When asked if he'd consider the role, his response was, "Yes, if it was offered to me, absolutely."
