Vote up the actors, living or passed, who epitomize cool onscreen and off.

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 celebrities know how to function both on and off the screen.

We often think of our favorite actors as being fairly close in personality to our favorite characters that they have portrayed. Most of these guys epitomize the word cool. 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 mixed brains with brawn in their iconic roles as John McClane and James Bond, respectively. While they each exemplify a different kind of cool, people are still attracted to these actors because of their coolness factor. These coolest Hollywood actors are the guys you'd want to hang out with, talk shop, and maybe down an adult beverage or two.
