From a beloved James Bond (Daniel Craig) to Louis C.K. and even Prince Harry, these famous men who are feminists will give you a newfound hope for humanity. From the hills of Hollywood to the halls of the royal palace, men everywhere are wising up to the fact that you don't have to be female to support the equal rights of women. Women's issues are human issues. And hopefully these famous male feminists will help spread the message throughout the world.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Hiddleston donned feminist t-shirts for Elle UK, and Ryan Gosling inspired the "Hey Girl" meme with his feminist views, but can you guess which celeb went so far as to actually upload a video of himself explaining his feminist views?

Read on to discover which of your favorite male celebrities proudly fly the feminist flag!

He has also written letters and made appearances in support of reproductive freedom, and advocated for greater opportunities for women in the entertainment industry.

Comedian and former Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari made a point of including a breakdown of feminism in his most recent stand-up special, Live At Madison Square Garden. He's also made a point of discussing the issue in interviews and TV appearances. "The dudes that I am friends with are pretty thoughtful guys that are already on board with it," he said. "But there are probably other dudes who are not really familiar with what that concept really means, and that word has been so weirdly used in the culture...its meaning is warped. Most people are a feminist, and yet don't really want to identify with that word."

Radcliffe is pretty vocal about his feminist leanings, often going out of his way to call out sexist jerks and/or profess his own devotion to gender equality. Whether he's poking holes in the myth of the "friend zone," or advocating for more and better opportunities for women in the entertainment industry, Radcliffe has never been afraid of using the F-word. "I think anyone who isn't [feminist] at this point is just swimming against the tide," he opined in an interview with GQ. "Just like people who are vaguely homophobic or racist, or sexist, or whatever it is. I just think, 'God, you're still keeping that up? Give it up. You've lost.''"
