Editor’s Note – Jonathan here: I would like to say that I do not endorse the content of this post and I hope that my beautiful wife can settle for a man that only kinda looks like Conan O’Brien.
One of the many things that Britain and Ireland do well is gorgeous actors. I don’t know if it is the accent or British/Irish gene pool but one thing is for sure, the British Isles have some beautiful men representing her these days when it comes to acting. Keep in mind, I could only pick 10 men or this list would be never ending. Here are my choices for the most handsome British and Irish actors:
This hunky actor won my heart by playing the character of Dr. Who. Warm, lovable, and not to mention gorgeous, David Tennant made an excellent Dr. Who. While I did enjoy the series for it’s interesting story lines and plots, I did also enjoy the eye candy. Tennant’s version of the Doctor always seemed to be the knight on the white horse or should I say in a blue box. Watching his character fall for Rose Tyler, that’s it, I was a goner. I go anywhere through time and space with this Doctor.
Wether it is acting brilliantly or riding around the world on a motorcycle, this man is gorgeous doing it all. I fell for this hunky actor when I first saw him in Moulin Rouge, as the sweet and venerable Christian. His career has grown from that role to include major Hollywood productions to the occasional independent film. I have also watched him ride his motorcycle around the world width wise and then from Scotland to South Africa, in Long Way Round and Long Way Down. I’d get on the back of his motorcycle any day.
I think this picture speaks for itself. What can I say, I am a sucker for James Bond. Craig’s role as the super spy, was fantastic and wonderfully handsome. Slick, sophisticated and British, this guy has got it all. Not to mention, every time I see him in a tux, I go a little weak at the knees. Absolute perfection!
From Jane Austin to Bridget Jones, Colin Firth is wonderful in whatever role he is playing. As the distinguished English gentleman, Firth pulls this off perfectly every time. The hopeless romantic that I am, would gladly accompany this man as his gentle lady.
I first saw this handsome actor in the crime drama, Murphy’s Law. What can I say, James nesbitt makes bald sexy. From that gorgeous accent to talented acting, this guys got it all. In the past few years this guy has got a bit of a reputation of being a ladies man. I would still consider leaving Jonathan for him.
While most American audiences don’t know that this actor is actually Scottish, I do. I first saw Butler in the film, P.S. I Love You. He does a sexy dance at the beginning of the film that would make any girl blush. He has gorgeous blue eyes, mixed with that great accent, what girl would not go weak at the knees over this guy?
Glen Hansard was incredible in the film Once. That was the first time I had come across this heart throb. Not only is he gorgeous, the man can sing like no other. His character in Once, is charming, and sweet as he falls for his co-star. I could listen to this man sing me the phone book and still totally swoon.
If I had to use one word to describe this actor it would be hot. He was steamy and sexy in Match Point. Those gorgeous blue eyes and handsome face. What girl stands a chance saying no to this stud, certainly not me. He seems gentle and like a bit of an asshole all at the same time, which is sexy.
This picture says it all, I really don’t need to say anything more about the sexiness of this British actor. From his roles in The Constant Gardner to the chick flick Maid in Manhattan, this sexy man oozes class and sophistication. This is another man I would happily listen while he read me the phone book. Not only is he devilishly handsome, but he has got one of the sexiest voices I have ever heard.
This Brit has a charm and sweetness about him that makes him very sexy. He is also hilariously funny and that in itself is really sexy. He seems like a gentle romantic man which makes this girl’s heart flutter. I must also say I have a thing for men with red hair, after all I married a man with red hair! From Run Fat Boy Run to Shaun of the Dead, this handsome man is so charming and funny.
