    Thirsty People Are Sharing Their Biggest Christmas Movie Crushes And I Can't Help But Agree

    "He is the only Christmas movie actor I've ever followed on Insta."

    Recently, we asked members of the Buzzfeed Community which characters from Christmas movies they found attractive. Here are some of the best suggestions:

    1. Hugh Laurie as Steven Claus in Arthur Christmas.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "Aardman had no business making a cartoon so hot! My lust for Steve is well documented, and he definitely deserves a spot on this list. The man is smart, ambitious, and he clearly works out. The tight skin fade and little Christmas goatee are the cherry on top of one suave and sexy cake!"

    2. James McAvoy as Arthur Claus in Arthur Christmas.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "I just love him, he's so cute and caring!"

    – yeahsurejan

    "aaaaah his voice aswell – it's one of my favourite movies!"

    3. Aubrey Plaza as Riley in Happiest Season.

    Hulu/Sony Pictures Releasing

    "If I wasn't willing to die for Aubrey Plaza before, I sure as hell am now (jk I was always willing, obviously).

    β€” claremk11

    "I am a gay man (who crushes hard on Dan Levy) but I think that character might be the first time I've ever been attracted to a woman."

    4. Dylan McDermott as Bryan Bedford in Miracle On 34th Street.

    20th Century Fox

    "Your man from Miracle on 34th Street was sooo hot. I think it was his sensational collection of coats."

    5. Jude Law as Graham Simpkins in The Holiday.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "He is God Tier."

    6. Jack Black as Miles Dumont in The Holiday.

    Sony Pictures Releasing

    "He's funny, talented, personable, and he appreciates women who are beautiful inside and out."

    β€” francesm4e77729e1

    "He is just so kind and a genuinely nice guy!"

    7. Nick Sagar as Kevin Richards in The Princess Switch films.


    "Yeah so I came for Vanessa Hudgens in a cute little baking-themed Holiday rom-com, and I stayed for her gorgeous love interest, Kevin. My God, he is one seriously distracting DILF. I could watch him flex his eyebrows all day..."

    8. Rachel McAdams as Amy Stone in The Family Stone.

    20th Century Fox

    "She makes comfy clothes look so good, and the snark and the attitude do it for me. Plus it is Rachel McAdams πŸ˜†."

    9. David Krumholtz as Bernard the Elf in The Santa Clause movies.

    Buena Vista Pictures Distribution

    "Let's not pretend for two seconds that when everyone was ten years old, we were all enamoured with Bernard."

    β€” katharine1

    "Bernard ... was my first love. It's just something about that irate Queens accent. Even now I'll watch The Santa Clause 2 just for him! (I feel less creepy about lusting over him in the second movie because he was in his early 20s by that point)."

    β€” allopoppet94

    10. James Stewart as George Bailey in It's A Wonderful Life.

    RKO Radio Pictures

    "That scene where he and Mary are sharing the telephone just makes me think my TV is going to burst into flame. Plus (spoilers?) he puts people before profit, even if it slightly ruins things for himself. But it all comes out okay in the end!"

    β€” songcat

    11. Rodrigo Santoro as Karl in Love Actually.

    Universal Pictures

    "Gurl, he makes me feel all kinds of Christmassy!"

    β€” tomalar2000

    "Karl was the perfect guy! He had a good and stable job – which is a reassuring foundation for any partnership – and he was also super kind, understanding, and patient (he waited over two years for Sarah to show she was emotionally ready for him!). And, um, I guess I should mention that his body was basically sculpted by the heavens above!"

    – spenceralthouse

    12. Alexander Ludwig as Captain Andrew Jantz in Operation Christmas Drop.


    "A new one but a hottie – Andrew Jantz and his six-pack!"

    β€” ibtisam1705

    13. Josh Whitehouse as Sir Cole in The Knight Before Christmas.


    "There's just something about how endearingly naive he is, his beautiful accent, and his amazing chemistry with Vanessa! Plus he's insanely cute! I couldn't take my eyes off his hair and his gorgeous eyes."

    – elliebamuel

    14. Henry Golding as Tom Webster in Last Christmas.

    Universal Pictures

    "He was well dressed, had a great personality, and was caring. He also was super charming!"

    15. Michael Caine as Scrooge in The Muppets Christmas Carol.

    Buena Vista Pictures Distribution

    β€” maxm32

    17. Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber in Die Hard.

    20th Century Fox

    ABC Family
