13 Male Celebrities You Had No Idea Were Total Hotties

Or maybe you did, but there’s nothing wrong with a little reminder.

1. A few classics to warm up the under 30 crowd.

These are things the rest of us already know, but here’s a little education for anyone born in the 90s. (also, remember when celebs used to smoke basically all the time? Weird.)

2. 1. Let’s start with Mr. Marlon Brando

He’s probably always been The Godfather to you

About all of this…

4. And this here…

(Stop being so adorable with that cat, Marlon!)

5. 2. Moving on to one Paul Newman

In your mind, he’s always been that super nice guy on the bottles of salad dressing.

6. But brace yourself…

7. No seriously, you may need to sit down for this.

(I can’t…even…)

8. 3. Moving along to Mr. Martin Sheen

In your mind, he’s the President from The West Wing (or the dad of the coach from the The Mighty Ducks).

9. So let’s turn the clock back to 1979…

ID: 1190156

10. …and remember how good this man is at staring off into distances.

ID: 1190157

11. 4. And while we’re on the subject of Sheens…

Some of you have only know this former Two and a Half Men star since he started *ahem*…winning.

ID: 1190169

12. So here’s a quick reminder…

ID: 1190173

13. of why drugs are bad, kids…

So…so bad… *smh*

ID: 1190174

14. So this is where things might get a little weird for you…

…because there are some men who have been the exact opposite of sexy for basically your whole life.

15. 5. For instance, take silver fox Steve Martin

Your earliest memory of him might be as the dad in Father of the Bride (or the dad in Cheaper by the Dozen), which means you’re entirely unprepared to learn…

ID: 1195468

16. He wasn’t always so silver…

(he also gets bonus cute points for posing with a cat)

ID: 1190298

17. I mean, just look at those suspenders.

Go on, Don Draper. Move the hell over!

ID: 1190295

18. 6. Annnnnnd headin on down to Christopher Walken…

…because he’s always been “that kind of weird dude” in every movie you’ve ever seen.

ID: 1195474

19. Unless you count that one time he gave a really flirty side-ways glance to Diane Keaton in Annie Hall.

ID: 1190054

20. Or that other time when he was all sullen and damaged in The Deer Hunter.

ID: 1190051

21. 7. As long as we’re feeling conflicted, let’s not forget Christoph Waltz.

Since the first time you remember seeing this man he was a seriously evil Nazi in Inglorious Basterds and the second time you remember seeing this man he was a Dentist/Bounty Hunter in Django Unchained - but long before all that…

ID: 1195480

22. …he made this epic face while grabbing a pair of striped pants.

ID: 1190238

23. Yep, the jerk from Water for Elephants used to be THIS. PRETTY.

ID: 1190239

24. 8. One last man to stir up awkward feelings - James Earl Jones

To you, he’s only ever been the dad from Coming to America. Or the voice of the dad from The Lion King. Or, oh yeah… the voice of the dad from Star Wars.

ID: 1195491

25. Which means this may be even more shocking than learning he was Luke’s Father.

Also, this black and white photo is not doing the man’s baby blues justice.

ID: 1190261

26. Now, let’s take a quick political detour

so we can feel conflicted in a whole new way.

ID: 1195493

27. 9. We need to discuss Republican Senator John McCain.

This somewhat jowly former presidential nominee has likely always been more of a grandfather figure to you. But hold onto all of your horses…

ID: 1195496

28. Because yeah, this used to be a thing.

I’m sorry… “Maverick” who?

ID: 1190084

29. 10. One more must-see politician - Howard Dean

Before this former Governor of Vermont lost his shiz in a bid for the 2004 Democratic Presidential Nomination…

ID: 1195507

30. …he looked directly into your soul and made this face.

(It’s like Josh Lyman was real once - and very very shirtless)

ID: 1190091

31. Heading back over to Hollywood

for one more rapid-fire round of mind-blowing hotness.

ID: 1199646

32. 11. It’s very possible the first time you saw Mr. Benicio Del Toro

he was tripping balls in a convertible while driving Johnny Depp through the desert. So it’s understandable…

ID: 1199583

33. …if this is all brand new information.

ID: 1190196

34. 12. Up next, Mickey Rourke

In your mind, this is the guy who beat up on Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man 2.

ID: 1199619

35. So we’ll pause a moment to swoon.

ID: 1190109

36. Ok, maybe two moments.

ID: 1190113

37. 13. Alright, one more - Ozzy Osbourne

Before he was a reality show star, and before he was biting off the heads of doves as the lead singer of Black Sabbath…

ID: 1199632

38. He had all of this right here..

ID: 1190136

39. Ok seriously, where the hell did this come from??

(p.s. go Sharon!)

ID: 1190141

(Oh and yeah, this last one is clearly not on the list. Mr. Stewart is, and has aways been, a total hottie.)

ID: 1199639
