Fifty Most Handsome Men in Hollywood

Charlene showed me how to look at the browsing history of my blog and I discovered, not surprisingly, that the most visited page, by far, was my post on The 50 Most Beautiful Woman in Film. So, in order to promote gender equality on Armchair Audience, I offer up The 50 Most Handsome Men in Film, as chosen by me.

Some criteria:

The actors must be in movies and not just in television.

They must be film stars, meaning they've starred in a film and not just appeared in one. Idris Elba is pushing this particular envelope because he is still primarily a television actor, but he's Idris Elba so I'll make an exception.

This is no reflection on acting ability.

Lastly (and obviously) this is a subjective list (except for the top six or so, all scientifically proven to be handsome). I'm not trying to provide anything definitive. Just offering up my list of the men in film most likely to cause me to switch sides. Enjoy.

  2. I would like to be in a Clive Owen-Michael Fassbender sandwich. Also, you left out Terrence Howard and everyone's favorite rage-filled Batman, Christian Bale.
