2. Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill is the world’s second most handsome man. We know him for his portrayal of Charles Brandon in Showtime’s The Tudors. He has also portrayed the DC Comics character Superman in the DC Extended Universe. And we’ve seen him as Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher, as well as Sherlock Holmes in Enola Holmes. Many of the viewers might have seen these movies or shows just because of the pretty face of Henry Cavill.

It is unimaginable to say something like this to the second most handsome man in the world. But it is true. An article in 2005, deemed Henry Cavill “the most unlucky man in Hollywood” since the actor, didn’t land some of significant roles. In 2004, before the eventual casting for Batman’s role, producers of the movie revealed a shortlist for the lead of the reboot of Batman. British director Christopher Nolan directed Batman Begins with Christian Bale as the lead. However, some well-known actors, including Henry Cavill, were up for the part.

However, by becoming Man of Steel, Henry ultimately became a part of the DC universe. He was also going to be a part of the McG Superman movie. But it didn’t happen. However, he was very close to the script while McG was working on it. But it got canceled because McG didn’t want to fly. “He certainly had a big fear of flying at the time,” revealed Henry. Not only these movies, but he missed out on other major roles as well.

3. David Beckham

What makes Beckham so attractive?

Firstly, his eyes are immediately striking. They are slim and angular; with a strong brow above them. This gives a masculine and strong look.

His nose is also very aesthetically pleasing; small in size overall, with an attractive shape. I would happily trade my giant honker for Beckham's.

As with many attractive celebrities, he also has a very well structured face. High cheek bones and a well proportioned head help him look like something straight off a billboard, at most angles.


David Beckham has developed a reputation for crafting great looks in recent years. One thing that many people forget, however, is how he got here. An important thing to remember is just how much Beckham experimented with his style, when he was younger; making every style mistake in the book along the way. From such experiences, he's really learned what looks best on him.

When it comes to jackets, particularly; Beckham regularly nails it. He has an eye for a stylish outer-garment and is regularly seen in everything from leather bombers, to denim jackets and camel coats. If you're short of ideas for such clothing; take a look at Beckham's Instagram for easy suggestions.

For jeans and trousers, you'll usually see him gravitate towards slimmer fits. Slim or skinny, due to his lean physique, tend to be his go-to choices. These allow him to look every inch of his six foot frame and form a great combination with his favoured chukka and Chelsea boots.

4. Chris Hemsworth

Everyone loves Chris Hemsworth, aka Christopher Hemsworth, as Thor, Marvel’s finest handsome actor. He’s an Australian actor who stands tall and has a sassy demeanor. He is always handsome, no matter what he does or wears.

He’s always a hit, whether he’s getting ready for a big premiere or resting on the beach with his wife Elsa Pataky and their three children. His figure is well-known, and he is the coolest and sexiest man on the planet.

He has the best body in Hollywood, with a chiseled torso. He receives a lot of attention and fans because of his outstanding attractive figure and his role as a Marvel Avenger Star. We feel there’s never a time when the Thor hottie isn’t rated a solid 10 on the bangable metre, whether he’s looking dapper on the red carpet or simply being a DILF in general.

He is well-known for his tall stature, athletic frame, sky blue eyes, and blonde hair.

We’ve had this Australian beauty in Hollywood for 14 years and have seen him change like no one else. Chris Hemsworth’s incredible physique was not achieved overnight; it took years of hard work and dedication.

He’s acted in a number of television and film productions over the years, but he shot to fame in 2011 when he was cast as the North God Thor in the Marvel flicks, and he’s been in the limelight ever since. He also has a tight bond with his sibling Liam Hemsworth, with whom he joins in training videos and on vacations.

According to De Silva’s study, Robert Pattinson’s face was found to be a 92.15% match to the golden ratio of beauty. Pattinson was the clear winner among all the famous faces De Silva looked at when all elements of the face were measured for physical perfection. This included his eye position, forehead, face shape, nose length and width, lips, and chin.

After stealing hearts in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire as Cedric Diggory, he captured the world's attention as the broody vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight franchise and most recently he's been back on screens in The Batman.

While his acting and his love life have often been the subject of headlines, his chiselled good looks have remained undisputed. The actor was originally given the title of being the most attractive man in the world in 2020 and he has failed to be knocked off the top spot ever since.

The title comes after an algorithm that ranks different facial features has analysed the men of Hollywood including Ryan Gosling, Idris Elba, Brad Pitt and Henry Cavill. Yet none of them could match Pattinson's perfect visage.

6. Paul Rudd

Paul Rudd is having a hard time accepting his new title of PEOPLE magazine's 2021 Sexiest Man Alive.

The actor, 52, has heard it all — kind, self-deprecating, affable, hardworking, all labels he's embraced to some degree. But sexy? That's a little outside his wheelhouse.

"I do have an awareness, enough to know that when people hear that I'd be picked for this, they would say, 'What?' " the actor tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "This is not false humility. There are so many people that should get this before me."

Such humble deflection — coupled with those gorgeous green eyes and easy grin — is exactly why audiences have fallen in love with Rudd over the years. This month alone he's reteaming with Will Ferrell for the new Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door and taking on one of Hollywood's most treasured franchises with Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

7. Idris Elba

There are several scientific reasons why women find men irresistible and Idris possess all of them.

He’s Confident

Confidence and high self-esteem are sexy, no question. In six studies from the Evolutionary Psychology journal, men with ostensibly higher levels of self-esteem were rated as more attractive and as more desirable relationship partners than those with lower levels of self-esteem.

He’s Good At His Job

In all of his hit roles, from playing a drug lord on The Wire to a detective on the hit BBC series Luther, he always appears to be very competent at his work. Success at your job, whatever it is, conveys you have the skills to “get things done,” and an achiever means a winner.

He Has A Deep Voice and Talks Slowly

Research that looked at U.S. presidential candidates between 1960 and 2000 found that in all eight elections, the candidate with the lower voice won the popular vote. Psychologically, we are more inclined to like men with lower-pitched and slower talking voices.

He’s Calm

Women find men who don’t stress hotter. According to new research conducted at the University of Abertay Dundee, men with low stress levels are significantly more attractive to women than highly stressed rivals.

8. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt's Famous quotes

“My mom will be so happy. She’s proud of everything I’ve done, but it’s something she can really brag about,” Chris Evans said in an interview about being featured on the cover of the magazine’s latest issue.


The handsome actor also thinks that he will be the subject of jokes by his close friends. “Really it’s just going to be a bullying spot, I could face harassment,” the famous actress joked in an interview.

Brad Pitt is never out of style

Brad Pitt is like a rock in a storm when it comes to style. No matter what the world throws at him, nothing can throw him off his course as one of the coolest men on the planet. Just look at the past few years of red carpet menswear which have proven that there aren't many risks a suitably fashionable guy can't get away with anymore.

Shirtless looks with cropped tuxes are in, as are unconventional silhouettes, dyed hair-dos and thoroughly obnoxious intense amounts of mascara.

Accessories the likes of which we've never seen before are making their way to the red carpet, and guys are taking more risks than ever to set themselves apart.

It's easy to imagine then that someone like Brad Pitt may not stand out as a bastion of cool anymore. He's a man who pioneered countless menswear revolutions— but what's a 46-year-old to do in an era where the fashion world is completely unrecognisable from what it was 10 years ago?

Also, with the particular sense of humor that characterizes him, he indicated that his mother, Lisa Capuano, will also be very happy about this appointment, since she always supports him in all his projects.
