The 15 "Hottest" Male Celebrities, According To Straight Guys

Well, this list is OK, I guess. Sorely lacking in the Benedict Cumberbatch department, though.

For the purposes of this highly scientific study, a celebrity was defined as "someone who's written about on gossip websites" to avoid the dudes all saying, like, baseball players and dead guys.

15. Leonardo DiCaprio

"Leonardo DiCaprio, he once was that guy in love movies (come to think of it, just Titanic), but he has proved himself to be a badass in 90% of films after Titanic." —Justin (California)

14. Gael García Bernal

"All those dudes are handsome but I'd like to throw Gael García Bernal into the mix." —Patrick (30, Texas)

13. Taylor Kitsch

"TAYLOR KITSCH! DUH!" —John (42, Texas)

12. "The dude that plays Arrow" (Stephen Amell)

The CW

"He can do the salmon climb like a mofo and also is in great shape." —Justin (California)

11. Jared Leto

"Jared Leto: because he's a really pretty girl who happens to be a man." —Matthew (23, New York)

10. Harrison Ford

"Harrison Ford, even though he's getting up there in age, because, you know, Star Wars." —Joe (37, Texas)

9. Idris Elba

8. Gerard Butler

"I believe Gerard Butler is the definition of a cool dude. Not only do women love him, he is in movies that are awesome (unlike Channing Tatum, who is trying to break the girly edge by being in supposed cool movies)." —Justin (California)

7. Aaron Paul

"Sure, he's a good-looking guy. Here he is in a suit. But it's more than that. He helped raise $1.8 million for his wife’s anti-bullying charity with a contest for a chance to win a trip to hang out with the Breaking Bad cast at a finale viewing party. So he's not only an incredibly attractive man, but he's a top-notch, caring, generous human being. I'm not saying I want to go out with Aaron Paul. I'm saying I'd love to hang out with him and maybe just be bros for life." —Adrian (28, New York)

6. Donald Glover

"I'd have to go with Donald Glover (plays Troy on COMMUNITY, raps under the nom de plume Childish Gambino). Why do I think he's 'hot'? Well, I don't know if 'hot' is the right word, but he's clever and funny and a damn fine-looking guy. Ya know, like me." —Sean (California)

5. "The man who plays Bones on the new Star Trek" (Karl Urban)

"Can I choose the man who plays Bones in the new Star Trek? I don't know if he is a top celebrity but he must be pretty well-known since that is quite a popular movie. If so, I would like to say that the man who plays Bones in the new Star Trek is very handsome and I don't understand why everyone is swooning over weird-faced Benedict Cumberbatch when the man who plays Bones in Star Trek was also in that very same film and clearly stole the show in terms of handsomeness. I cannot, unfortunately, pinpoint the particular features that lead me to believe that the man who plays Bones in Star Trek is a handsome man, but I am certain that it is the case." —Jack (34, New York)

4. Ryan Reynolds

"He's good-looking but in an approachable way." —Ben (New York)

3. "The baby goose" (Ryan Gosling)

"Gosling because he has a better dog and is a more interesting actor [than George Clooney]." —Josh (33, Texas)

"Baby Goose, of course, 'cuz he makes me feel bad about my body." —Justin (California)

2. George Clooney

"George Clooney because he has the life all guys say they want and is debonaire as shit." —Justin (California)

"George Clooney obviously. He's always on point, fashion wise, is the exact right level of salt-and-pepper, and never seems to do any clowny shit. He's the closest thing to Cary Grant we have." —Jeff (30, Texas)

1. Hugh Jackman

"Hugh Jackman is the hunkiest of all hunks. He's impressively cut — his muscles are so sharp that you can probably polish diamonds with them — and he also has an Aussie accent. Throw in the singing voice of an angel, his Wolverine status, and the rightful title of Sexiest Man Alive in 2008, and you've got the perfect man for everyone." —Spencer (22, New York)

"Hugh Jackman, who's the pinnacle of hunkdom because he call pull off [any] look. Also, he has a lovely accent." —Adam (New York)

"He's tall, handsome, and manly, but he also seems like a nice guy. He's the kind of man that will chop down a tree, make a table out of it, and then pull out the chair for you." —Logan (New York)
