The Modern Equivalents of the Sexiest Men of Yesteryear
THE DANCE FLOOR DREAMBOAT
If you're looking for a man who will sweep you off of your feet – and can probably lift you over his head while he's at it – you're going to want a man like Patrick Swayze or Channing Tatum. It's hard to decide what about them makes us swoon more: their dance moves or their washboard abs. (Both. The answer is both.)
THE ACTION HERO
Han Solo, Indiana Jones: Harrison Ford played them both to charming, strong, thrilling perfection. And if there's anyone in Hollywood who's managed to live up to Ford's gorgeous, action-superstar legacy, it's Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. Either one of them can save us any day of the week.
THE SWOON-WORTHY SUPERSTAR
Hey, girl. Would you describe your celebrity crush as someone who's hotter than the sun, a box office superstar who's equally beloved by the critics, and who is one half of the kind of power couple that redefines relationship goals? Then you're probably talking about either Brad Pitt or Ryan Gosling, two men that literally everyone has fallen in love with at some point in their lives.
THE TOUR DE FORCE HEARTTHROB
Like Denzel Washington, Michael B. Jordan has given some incredible, critically-acclaimed performances, proving that he can do action, drama and romance. He's showcased abs you could grate cheese on in an intense boxing movie, and he's got a smile that makes you absolutely melt ... which means it's really only a matter of time before Jordan wins an Oscar of his own.
THE CHARM KING
George Clooney is handsome in that classic, Old Hollywood kind of way that looks incredible in a tux and can charm every woman in the room with a smile and an offer of a drink. Now that his Fresh Prince years are behind him, Will Smith has proven that he's probably the most charming man in the room at any given moment, and, as anyone can tell you, he looks amazing in a tux. Young men of the world, take note.
THE SUAVE SPY
Charming, seductive and devilishly handsome? Check. With a smile that makes your knees weak and your insides fluttery? Check. And a gorgeous accent that makes you swoon? Double check. It's no wonder that Idris Elba and Sean Connery both have us all shaken (and stirred).
THE BEAUTIFUL BRIT
Picture your dream rom-com hero, the one you desperately wish was real enough to romance you. Is he smart, charming but a touch awkward, with a good job, terrific taste in clothes and (let's dream big here) an adorable dog he dotes on completely? Is he played by either Jude Law or Eddie Redmayne in your mind? Yeah, ours too.
THE AB-TASTIC A-LISTER
When Tom Cruise won Sexiest Man Alive in 1990, he was one of the biggest young stars in the world, famous for his incredible good looks, dedicated work ethic and crooked smile. Currently, Nick Jonas is known for being one of the most famous young actors/singers in the game, working tirelessly on both his albums and his abs.
THE IRRESISTIBLE BAD BOY
Is there anyone in the world who epitomizes the kind of tattooed, leather-jacket wearing bad boy of our dreams quite like Johnny Depp at his peak? How about The Weeknd, who makes the kind of music designed to make women everywhere swoon and has that kind of brooding, bad boy charm that nobody can possibly resist? (Plus, come on, is there anyone with better hair in Hollywood right now?)
