    This Is What 16 Of The Hottest Men In 2018 Looked Like In 2008

    Basically from clean shaven to beards.

    It's hard to believe that 2008 Jamie Dornan would end up becoming BDSM master Christian – he looked like butter wouldn't melt! But now in 2018, Jamie's putting a lock on the red room and wrapping up his role as Mr Grey.

    2. Henry Cavill.

    Suited and booted, Henry Cavill looked mighty handsome when he attended the Met Gala in 2008. But fast-forward to now, and the Man of Steel has a moustache that has many knees bucking.

    3. Idris Elba.

    Although he's now 10 years older, Idris doesn't seem to have changed much at all! Unfortunately for us, Idris just recently got engaged. If you listen carefully, you can hear the sound of hearts breaking.

    4. Tom Hardy.

    From Myspace poser to Hollywood actor and everything in between, Tom's always been a gift to the eyes, let's be honest.

    5. Chris Hemsworth.

    Look, I don't want to be dramatic but I refuse to believe that's Chris Hemsworth. But at the same time, it looks exactly like Chris Hemsworth? I don't get it? Anyway, Mr Thor is still handsome AF.

    6. Jason Momoa.

    Yep, Aquaman used to look like that back in 2008. He doesn't quite have dreads anymore, but he does still have flowing locks that make him look like he should be in a shampoo commercial. I, for one, would buy it.

    7. Armie Hammer.

    In 2008, Armie was definitely more "you can call me by your name if you wish", but in 2018 he's a little more "call me daddy". Although he obviously looks handsome in both decades, you can't deny that Armie's beard is enough to make anybody thirsty as hell.

    8. Dwayne Johnson.

    Although he was a big household name in 2008, The Rock wasn't quite a blockbuster draw. However, in 2018 he often tops the list of highest paid actors, and leads the pack in any movie he stars in.

    9. Ryan Reynolds.

    10 years have passed and Ryan still wears the hell out of a suit. Except now he does it with a little more grey in his beard, which I'm totally into.

    10. Michael B. Jordan.

    Although he plays the antagonist in the new Black Panther movie, Michael B. Jordan looks as far away from being a villain as possible in real life. Just look at that smile!

    11. Chris Evans.

    Ohhhh, Captain America. I have no words, except... wow.

    12. Riz Ahmed.

    Flat caps must've been all the red carpet rage in 2008. Thankfully, Riz decided to leave it at home when he went to the Oscars in 2017.

    13. Charlie Hunnam.

    In 2008, it was long-haired Charlie doing the walks on the red carpet. Now he looks a little more groomed, even if his beard is a little longer.

    14. Oscar Isaac.

    Do me a favour? Go to the dictionary, look up "men improve with age", and just stare at the picture of Oscar Isaac for a minute. It'll really perk your day up.

    15. John Krasinski.

    What happened here!? 2008 John and 2018 John literally look nothing alike! Whereas before it kinda looked like John would be lucky to grow three facial hairs, he now has a plentiful beard. I'm just gutted it covers half of his handsome face!

    16. Brad Pitt.

    OK look, I'm sorry but that moustache in 2008 is questionable. But proving that he's basically a fine wine, Brad's only gotten better with time.
