List RulesVote up the most attractive famous men, living or passed.

You love your boyfriend (husband? Lucky you!), but then there are these hot celebrity men. You see them and then you maybe forget about your man for two seconds. It's okay. The hotties on this list of Hollywood's hottest men and the most attractive male celebrities in the world just have that impact. Look at them! This list of sexy guys includes models, hot male actors, musicians, singers, athletes, reality TV personalities, and anyone else who has captured the hearts and attention of men and women across the globe.

Though many of these hot famous guys are young and known for driving teenage girls wild (Zac Efron, Ian Somerhalder, and Chace Crawford all rank pretty well), it's interesting to note the variation in age on any list of handsome men. Hot celebrity guys like George Clooney just seem to be gorgeous at any age. Older gentlemen like Sean Connery still bring in their fair share of votes, as do '90s stars like Will Smith and Hugh Jackman.

Another question arises: "What makes a certain guy hotter than another?" Surely, some of it is purely physical - smoldering good looks, nice muscles (especially abs) and so on. But with hot male celebs, there is also charisma and personal style to consider. Hot actors typically have that "it" factor that helps them land those roles. Would Clive Owen be a matinee idol were he not capable of commanding attention as well as swoons? The question at some point becomes purely subjective. That's where you come in. Who do you think are the sexiest actors

Pick your own line-up of hottest actors and cute famous guys and use it to re-rank this list of hot male celebs. Or just vote for your favorite dudes and celebrity man crushes to make sure they steadily climb up the rankings!
