- Kellan Lutz -
This North Dakota native is best known for his role in the Twilight Saga as Robert Pattinson’s brooding and lovable brother, Emmett Cullen.

Speaking of 90210, Lutz has been on-again and off-again for a number of years with hottie Annalynne McCord. Seeing snap shots of the two of them frolicking on the beach makes women and men alike, turn a shade of green. If thats not enough, just check out his Calvin Klein ads.

- George Clooney -
For years, George Clooney has been on every Hollywood ‘hot’ list there is. The silver fox made age sexy, and seems positively ageless. Clooney seems to never get older, and only get sexier. The Academy Award nominated star for ‘Up in the Air’ is pushing 50, and he still looks as delicious as he did when we met him during his days on the television series ER. On top of his role as obvious eye candy, George is one of the most notable celebrities in Hollywood, having worked as an actor, film director, producer, and screenwriter. Additionally, he is noted for parlaying his celebrity into social activism, most recently for Haiti relief efforts. He has also served as one of the United Nations Messengers of Peace since early 2008, and is very active in advocating a resolution for the Darfur conflict.. The Kentucky native did two university stints, but provided for himself through odd jobs like selling men’s suits and cutting tobacco, before he decided to pursue acting, and we’re all very thankful he did!
- Will Smith -
The Fresh Prince came on to the radar as a rapper, before starring on the popular 90s television show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Smith then transitioned from television to film and his popularity increased even more, and he starred in numerous blockbuster films. He is, in fact, the only actor in history to have eight consecutive movies gross over $100 million in the domestic box office. He is also the only actor to have eight consecutive films in which he starred open at #1 spot in the domestic box office. Plus, in nineteen fictional films he’s acted in have accumulated a worldwide gross of over $100 million each, and four of them took in over $500 million. In short, Smith in a film often means it will be a hit. He has consistently been listed in Fortune Magazine’s ‘Richest 40′ list of the forty wealthiest Americans under the age of 40. In addition, this actor/rapper/film producer/record producer/former TV personality/television producer, is also a family man. Will has been married to Jada Pinkett Smith since 1997, whom he has children with. On top of his good looks, charm, talent, and desirable qualities, he is also quite smart. Smith apparently turned down a scholarship to MIT before pursuing his career in the entertainment business. Brains and a hot body? This stud always keeps it fresh, no wonder we love him. Jada, you’re one lucky gal!
- Chace Crawford -
For Chace, Gossip Girl is obviously just the beginning. This young star from Texas originally moved to California to study broadcast journalism at Pepperdine University in Malibu. After nearly two years there, his mother encouraged him to pursue acting, and he was quickly signed by the first talent agent that interviewed him. Not long after, Crawford landed the role of Nate Archibald in The CW’s wildly popular Gossip Girl. Since he has been named ‘Summer’s Hottest Bachelor’ by People magazine, appeared in music videos, acted in films, and endorsed brands like Calvin Klein.

- Robert Pattinson -
This British born actor, model, and musician is best known for his starring role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight Saga. Edward, the sexy vampire, has young girls and old ladies alike throwing their panties at him, and Pattinson even commented once that this was the closest experience to The Beatles he could imagine. The Twilight Saga film adaptation, based on the novels by Stephanie Meyer, have created an international frenzy, and Rob is right in the middle of it. So how did he get there? The London native’s looks sure helped. At the age of twelve, Rob began modeling. His mother worked for a modeling agency, but Pattinson admits that his modeling career was rather unsuccessful. Luckily, his acting career has been the complete opposite. He started in supporting roles on television and in films, and ended up landing a role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In addition, Pattinson plays guitar and piano, and he composes his own music. Two of his songs are featured in the Twilight soundtrack. Music for Rob is something he enjoys right now. He hasn’t recorded anything really, “I just played in pubs and stuff”, and, “music is my backup plan if acting fails”, he says. Talent in many ways, Rob also happens to be stunning to look at. In 2008 and 2009 he was named one of the Sexiest Men Alive by People magazine. In 2009, Glamour conducted a poll, through which he was named the Sexiest Man Alive, and Vanity Fair named him one of the top earners of 2009. Rob is currently in the twilight of his career, but for this stud, (who has been called ‘the next Jude Law’) I think this is just the dawn breaking. Expect big things from this talented, stylish, and sexy star.
- Reggie Bush -
If the above cover isn’t enough to convince you as to why Reggie Bush is on this list, maybe his other qualities will. Bush is a professional football player who plays for the NFL’s New Orleans Saints, who recently won the Superbowl.

Good looks, exceptional talent and a kind heart, the range of qualities about this man that makes him so hot is broader than his breathtaking smile.
- Brad Pitt -
Its almost impossible to think of formulating a ‘hot’ list and not including Brad Pitt. This American Actor began acting, as many do, with guest appearances on television. He was first really noticed in film for his role as the cowboy hitchhiker in Thelma & Louise. His first leading roles followed shortly thereafter in the big-budget productions, A River Runs Through Itand Interview with the Vampire.

Pitt has since produced critcally acclaimed performances in films such as: Seven, 12 Monkeys, Snatch, Fight Club, Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen, Troy, Mr & Mrs Smith, and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. If his undeniable good looks and incredible talent didn’t catch enough attention for the star, his love life sure did. Pitt had a high-profile relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow, followed by a five year marriage to Jennifer Aniston. Following his sudden split from Aniston, known to many as the split that ‘rocked the world’, as they were viewed as Hollywood’s golden couple, Pitt scandalously began seeing Angelina Jolie.

Still together, Pitt and Jolie live and have six children together (three adopted and three biologically). Pitt has become increasingly involved in social issues both in the USA and internationally, alongside his partner. In addition, the Oklahoma native is a graduate of the University of Missouri. Though he majored in journalism with a focus in advertising, Pitt was more interested in pursuing acting, which he considered more of a hobby at the time. Two weeks prior to graduation, he moved to LA to take acting lessons and pursue his dream. He has since become one of the most famous movie stars of all time. He is also the owner of the production company Plan B Entertainment, which produced the awards winning Best Picture, The Departed.Pitt has also been nominated twice for an Academy Award.

Scarlett and Ryan are one of the least photographed couples in Hollywood and keep their personal life very private. This mystery only adds to Ryan’s appeal, and in 2008 and 2009, he was named one of People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive. His quality talent, down-to-earth attitude and boy-next-door good looks make Ryan one of the hottest men in Hollywood, and one of the hottest Canadians (if not the hottest).
- Johnny Depp -
The People’s Choice Award 2010 winner for Best Actor of the Decade, Johnny Depp is arguably the best actor of all time. Depp is not your typical hottie, though his bone structure suggests otherwise, this actor/musician is one of a kind. He is also a screenwriter, director and producer, but is known best for his portrayals of offbeat, eccentric characters, like Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. His breakthrough role was on the television series 21 Jump Street, and he quickly became a teen idol, however he did not like this characterization. So, he turned to films he felt were the right choice for him, which lead to his role in Edward Scissorhands. From there the wide array of diverse characters he played are astounding. Some of his most critically acclaimed roles were in the films: Sleepy hallow, Pirates of the Caribbean, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd:The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Blow, Benny & Joon, Public Enemies, and most recently, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Time and again, Depp proves that he is unique, convincing, genuine, and undeniably talented. A true artist, Depp is not only an actor, he is an accomplished musician as well. He plays guitar and piano, and he has recorded a solo album. He has played alongside big names in the business, like: Oasis, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Tom Petty, and more. In addition, Depp is a winemaker and restaurateur, and lives a very ‘European’ lifestyle, appreciate the arts and living life to its fullest. He is also not very into the American lifestyle, and he much prefers the anonymity of living in France and his simpler life there. Thus, Depp is not your typical tabloid fixture. And when you see him on the red carpet, its obvious as to why. He is not your typical Hollywood star, and that is what is so attractive about him. Though he doesn’t try to be the biggest media buzz, he does catch some obvious attention for his talent, but he also does for his love life. Depp was married to Lori Anne Allison for three years, after which he dated Sherilyn Fenn, Winona Ryder, and Kate Moss. He has been with his current partner, Vanessa Paradis, since 1998, and they have children together. This Kentucky native is hot because he is different. He has thirteen tattoos, and has said that his body is “a journal” marking phases of his life. This inked up edgy man has consistently been named as one of the Sexiest Men of all time by People magazine, and its obvious to see why. This man single handedly made make-up on men hot.
- Channing Tatum -
This sensitive and sexy star has appeared topless in all his films, and his face and talent are on par with his killer body. The Alabama native began his career as a fashion model, but transitioned into film 2004 with a role on CSI: Miami. From there, Channing’s career took off with starring roles in She’s the Man, Step Up, Fighting, Public Enemies, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Dear John. Before Hollywood and fame came knocking, however, Channing lived a rural existence. His family moved to Mississippi when he was six. He was athletic while growing up, and played various sports ranging from football to track to martial arts. Sports, however, were not the thing keeping Channing from his studies, it was, of course, the ladies. For high school he moved to Tampa and was then awarded a football scholarship to Glenville State College, but he turned it down. Instead, he worked odd jobs, including a stint as an exotic dancer under the name ‘Chan Crawford’, (he reportedly would like to make a film about his experience as a stripper). Later, he moved to Miami where he was discovered on the street by a model talent scout. From there, he began modeling for labels such as: Armani, Nautica, D&G, Abercrombie & Fitch, and so on. He the appeared in music videos and commercials. Tatum credits his career as a model for making life a little easier for him and his family, while also showing him his true passion in life: art. “I never knew what I wanted to do”, he said, “I’ve been able to explore life, and through exploring it I’ve found that I love art, I love writing, I love acting, I love all the things that make sense to me. And I’ve been given the chance to go out and see the world, and to see all the things out there. Not everyone gets that chance”. In addition to his work as a model and actor, Tatum has started a production company called 33andOut Productions alongside his friends Reid Carolin, Adam Martingano, and Brett Rodriguez. In terms of his personal life, Channing is rarely (if ever) a hot scandal topic in the tabloids. He lives a rather down-to-earth, carefree existence. In 2006 he met Jenna Dewan on the set of Step Up, and they began dating shortly after filming finished. They were engaged in September 2008 and married in July 2009, and are still together. Girls around the world were crushed when he decided to settle down, though it hasn’t stopped the fantasies for any of them. Tatum has been nominated and won several awards, including many Teen Choice Awards. Sexy and stylish, it is evident that this is just the beginning of an epic journey for this (more than just) delicious looking young man.
