As movie fans, we like to think of our favorite actors as being larger than life. With all of the coverage that these stars get, these cool customers know how to function both on and off the screen. Often times we think of our favorite actors as being fairly close in personality to our favorite characters to whom which they portray. Obviously it's impossible for them to be a lot like their famous portrayals, but that doesn't mean that these guys aren't cool. In fact, most of these guys epitomize what cool is. Beginning with actors like Humphrey Bogart and Cary Grant during the Golden Age of Film, the best leading men have had a certain aura about them. James Dean, Marlon Brando and Steve McQueen are other actors who are considered some of the coolest guys ever.

More recently, tough guy actors like Bruce Willis and Daniel Craig mix brains with brawn in their iconic roles as John McClane and James Bond each. While they each exemplify a different kind of cool, people are still attracted to these actors because this coolness factor. These actors of the guys who you'd want to hang out with, talk shop and maybe down an adult beverage or two with.
