See the hottest men on Marie Claire's radar in all their gorgeous glory. You won't want to miss these sexy snapshots, trust us...
Ready to swoon over the most sexy men on the planet?
When would the answer to that question ever be no? We thought not…
If you can handle topless sport stars (HELLO David Beckham), chiseled actors and smoking hot musicians, you’re eyes are in for a real treat.
Get excited because we?ve scoured the lands and compiled an edit of the celebrity world?s hottest eye candy. Hollywood is full of good looking people but we?ve rounded up the creme de la creme – only the finest looking men will be found right here. With killer bodies, dashing good looks and bucket loads of charm, these men are well and truly irresistible.
From crowd pleasers such as Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Ryan Reynolds to more edgy and kooky options (Adam Brody and Aaron Taylor-Johnson we?re looking at you), this list is full to the brim of insanely hot specimens.
The list is truly international but flying the flag for team GB in the lineup is the likes of charming Brit boys, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth and Idris Elba.
And of course we couldn’t forgot some of old Hollywood?s iconic charmers. Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Leonardo Di Caprio may have been on the list for years, but is it just us or do they get better and better with age? For this reason they?ve made the list.
Whatever your taste in the opposite sex, we can promise you there’s an achingly handsome man in our round-up that’ll have you instantly weak at the knees.
So, here are Marie Claire’s pick of the 35 hottest and sexiest men in the world, and why they deserve your full attention… starting with David Beckham in his H&M underwear campaign.
50 Shades Of Grey dreamboat Jamie Dornan is about to become the world’s hottest leading man so it’s only natural he features among this throng of smouldering stars. With his piercing blue eyes, styled tendrils and designer stubble, he’s somehow even prettier than the Christian Grey we’ve been fantasising about?
Robert Pattinson branded as the most delicious vampire to exist in Hollywood stole our hearts as Edward Cullen in Twilight and he’s had us hooked ever since. His sculptured jaw, designer stubble and penetrating gaze have resulted in R-Patz becoming one of hottest British faces to appear on the silver screen.
Leonardo DiCaprio only needs to take one glance at a woman to leave her weak at the knees. From floppy-haired, fresh-faced Titanic actor to hedonistic, charismatic Wolf Of Wall Street star, whoever Leo plays and whatever Leo does, it only causes us to fall deeper for his charms.
Brad Pitt’s sexiness is off-the-scale hot. He’s been a constant god-like figure in the movie business for decades now and this achingly gorgeous man only gets better with age. Besides his mesmerising eyes and million dollar smile, the fact he’s a brooding, caring father-of-six who puts his wife and children first means he’s just about our number one man in the world.
Orlando Bloom, now officially on the market, has just shot to the top of our hottest bachelor list. That wavy mop of hair, his mischievous grin, plus he fact he is currently spending his days passionately portraying Romeo in Shakespeare’s tragic love story – need we say more?
Joshua Jackson, our guilty Dawson’s Creek crush from yesteryear, has reared his head as a rather dashing grown-up. We already knew he had absolute bags of charm but now the 35-year-old has a sexy beard and Californian tan to boot. We’ve only got to fight off German beauty Diane Kruger now and he’s ours…
Ryan Gosling the classic internet crush. He’s everywhere and we’re certainly not complaining. After falling truly, madly, deeply in love with him during the most romantic hour and a half of our lives (The Notebook, course), this dirty blonde haired beauty has had us enthralled ever since.
Adam Brody first came to light as the geeky (and totally loveable) Seth Cohen in US TV hit The OC. Playing a bumbling boy with an intense love of both checked shirts and brunette beauty Summer Roberts, his awkwardness and obsession with his one true love only made him more endearing. We’ve found it near-on-impossible to shake our mega-crush to this day.
George Clooney, the ultimate silver fox (sorry Phillip Schofield), has long graced the screensavers of women worldwide. With a rumbling voice that could put a newborn baby to sleep, endless chocolate brown eyes and flecked silver hair, what’s not to love?
Ashton Kutcher is an all-American dreamboat. His thick coffee-coloured locks frame his incredibly chiseled face and he has abs to die for. Plus, this comedy genius has had us in stitches throughout his successful career. Hot with a GSOH? It’s almost unheard of unless you’re in Hollywood. Now, if only we could just creep past Mila Kunis…
Our minor obsession with Idris Elba went stratospheric after watching him and his brilliant mind crack crime and bust outlaws in BBC drama Luther. The tortured soul act – along with a seriously dapper wardrobe – meant we were head over heels before we could even shout Detective Chief Inspector.
Bradley Cooper started flashing up on our radar around the time he highlighted his now-brown locks blonde, became a bit of a party-mad rogue and worked cool aviators in Las Vegas – yes, we mean the Brad that appeared in The Hangover. His look may have changed slightly since but we’re still totally bewitched by Mr Cooper.
Gerard Butler is probably our favourite Scotsman of all time. In the looks department, anyhow. He stripped off down to a linen cloth to lead a raging army of rippling Spartans to war in action flick 300. Hot. He’s continued to be ever-charming throughout his career, appearing on chat show after chat show with a wealth of hilarious stories. Plus, it helps that he’s the epitome of tall, dark and handsome.
Canadian dreamboat Ryan Reynolds is nothing short of a dashing gentleman with his gorgeous beach tan and slicked back locks. Film after film he’s unintentionally made our obsession grow. It probably helps he gets naked in some of them too…
Douglas Booth is another British new boy who’s caught our attention. He may only be a nipper – 21 exactly – but that doesn’t mean his fresh face, witty charm, dark features and piercing stare are going to waste. He more than deserves a spot among Marie Claire’s hottest.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson stole our hearts 3 times. Once, when he gave a truly spellbinding performance as John Lennon in biopic Nowhere Boy, another when he fulfilled every man’s dream of becoming a superhero (and wore a super-tight costume, which helped) in Kick-Ass and lastly, when he fell in love and married 23 years his senior 50 Shades director Sam Taylor-Wood.
Tom Hardy – the ultimate bad boy – is undeniably one of the hottest British actors around. Thanks to his mean stare, his roguish good looks and his all-round dangerous demeanour, we’d challenge any woman not to fall totally in love with him after a mere minute in his company.
Jon Hamm and his devilishly suave Mad Men alter-ego Don Draper both deserve a spot in Marie Claire’s sexiest men list. As well as the dashing good looks that lend themselves to the 50s as if he was a perfectly crafted man of Hollywood’s golden age, we can bet money that he’s a riot on a night out.
Johnny Depp wins points among our hot list for orginality. He’s never one to follow the crowd. His trademark tinted sunglasses, his exotic facial hair and flowing tousled mop are all what makes Mr Depp one uniquely gorgeous leading man.
Henry Cavill, or more fondly known to us as Man Of Steel, has the features of a drop dead gorgeous cartoon character. His huge blue eyes, thick chocolate curls and the squarest of square jaws sometimes have us wondering if he’s even real. Please say he is, please say he is…
Adam Levine takes the classic rock ‘n’ roll look and totally turns it on its head. Forget long straggly locks, bad bandanas and guyliner (we’re looking at your Bret Michaels), Mr Maroon 5 has given music fans a new idol to gaze over.
Justin Timberlake has one of those faces that just gets better with age. So long are the bleached blonde tendrils and double-denim uniforms of the early 00s. These days, the American singer is all about swish tailoring, suits and ties – and we his transformation. A lot.
We almost popped a picture in here of Chris Hemsworth holding his tiny, cute-as-a-button baby but we thought that might cause some sort of hysteria because you can’t get more gorgeous than the Rush actor holding his miniature bundle of joy. Fact.
Daniel Craig, Mr James Bond himself, was bound to make it into Marie Claire’s list of the sexiest men alive. A pre-requisite of becoming 007 is to be drop dead gorgeous, utterly engrossing and able to seduce may women at once with a mere stare. Well, we totally see why he bagged the role then…
Jake has not one, but two celebrity godparents. Alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, he also had the late Paul Newman as a role-model. Maybe not surprising given the fact his parents are an acclaimed screenwriter and director respectively.
Clive Owen might have slipped off the party circuit of late but that hasn’t stopped us forgetting exactly why we think he’s one of the world’s most smouldering men. The thick dark hair, the endless blue eyes, the charm that exudes from every pore. Yep, we still remember you Clive.
We’re pretty sure Channing Tatum’s rippling abs have made girls faint. And if he shares anymore candid photos of himself falling in love with his new born baby on Instgram we think we just be joining that embarrassing queue too…
Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul may not our ideal man on-screen (meth addict and drug dealer – not exactly dream man material) but off-screen he’s a cheeky, charming, blue-eyed hunk who worships the ground his wife walks on. We’re literally in love.
