2. Robert Downey Jr.
(B. April 4, 1965) 45. Handsome, adorable, and just plain irresistible. I was in love since I first saw him in a movie, and it was long before "Iron Man" came out!

3. Patrick Dempsey
(B. January 13, 1966) 45. Known to "Greys Anatomy" fans as "McDreamy," and for a good purpose! This charming actor is extremely sexy in everything I've seen him in.

4. George Clooney
(B. May 6, 1961) 49. Pushing fifty, George Clooney is still considered one of the sexiest men in Hollywood. He is one of the most charming men alive.

5. Will Smith
(B. September 25, 1968) 42. This likable actor/rapper has been extremely popular for many years, not to mention very hot. He's also been holding up very nicely.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (261 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
6. Matthew Fox

(B. July 14, 1966) 44. This handsome star of TV show "LOST" is tall, affable, and downright sexy. In my opinion, he is one of the hottest men on TV.

Average listal rating (978 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
7. Ralph Fiennes

(B. December 22, 1962) 48. This smoldering British actor is sexy as the hero or the villain, except for when he's playing ugly Voldemort in "Harry Potter."

8. Hank Azaria

(B. April 25, 1964) 46. This cute, slightly nerdy character actor, famous for his many voices on "The Simpsons," is hot and overall attractive! You may not know it, but he's got a pretty hot body.

9. John Cusack

(B. June 28, 1966) 44. Intelligent, edgy, and charismatic, John Cusack has definitely caught my attention. Did I also mention I think he's pretty cute?
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (1423 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
10. Hugh Jackman
(B. October 12, 1968) 42. Buff and appealing, this Aussie-born hunk deserved his title as "Sexiest Man Alive" in 2008. He was also on Broadway, which I find pretty cool.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (1732 ratings) 7.4  IMDB Rating
11. Matt Damon

(B. October 8, 1970) 40. A newbie into his forties, Matt Damon has been one of the sexiest screen heartthrobs since he was young, and is still looking decent!
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (199 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
12. Rob Lowe

(B. March 17, 1964) 46. He's this high on this list because he's really hot, but he's done some pretty gross things. It's a surprise I didn't put him lower on the list.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (1984 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
13. Tom Cruise
(B. July 3, 1962) 48. He's another one of those mega-famous sex symbols of Hollywood. Honestly, who can resist that smile? Not everyone will agree to this.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (2488 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
14. Brad Pitt

(B. December 18, 1963) 47. The most sought-after, publicized celebrity in all of Hollywood. A total babe, of course, but I'm tired of hearing about Bradgelina all the time.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (1259 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating
15. Owen Wilson
(B. November 18, 1968) 42. Mainly known for his comedy films, I always found this blond, surfer dude type actor attractive in his own, unusual way.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (234 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating
16. Chris O'Donnell
(B. June 26, 1970) 40. Ever since I saw "Batman Forever," I had a crush on this soft-spoken, innocent-looking cutie. I have to admit, he was one hot Robin!
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (328 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
17. David Boreanaz
(B. May 16, 1969) 41. Like Rob Lowe, he isn't the best human being, but I had to place him high on the list because he's pretty damn fine. He is a hottie on TV's "Bones."
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (316 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
18. Josh Holloway

(B. July 20, 1969) 41. He is Matthew Fox's sexy foil on "LOST"- a bad boy who's pretty darn gorgeous. Jack is my favorite, but my mom is in love with Sawyer.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (10 ratings) 6.1  IMDB Rating
19. Cameron Mathison

(B. August 19, 1969) 41. This handsome, blue-eyed actor stars on ABC's "All My Children," and hardly ever wears a shirt. I was so excited when I met him at Super Soap Weekend in Disney!

Average listal rating (733 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
20. Clive Owen
(B. October 3, 1964) 46. I've actually never seen a movie of his yet, though I know enough about him and his movies. All I need to know is that he's a really hot, sexy British actor.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (355 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
21. Jamie Foxx

(B. December 17, 1967) 42. He's another one who considers himself a rapper, but I consider him more of an actor. I thought he was very attractive when I saw the movie "Dreamgirls."
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (587 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
22. Paul Rudd

(B. April 6, 1969) 41. This boyishly handsome star is in lots of bad movies, but that doesn't stop him from being hot. He's a hot comedian. How sexy is that?
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (2207 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
23. Jim Carrey
(B. January 17, 1962) 49. Everyone knows him as the over-the-top, rubber-faced comedian, but Jim Carrey really isn't bad-looking. In fact, he's kinda really attractive.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (689 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
24. Daniel Craig

(B. March 2, 1968) 43. This buff, blond, British Bond actor (try saying that five times fast), though older than forty, is still the object of many young people's desire.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (703 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
25. Gerard Butler

(B. November 13, 1969) 41. A big-time, major celebrity hunk at the moment, this Scottish star captured many female hearts for "Phantom Of The Opera."

26. Mark Ruffalo
(B. November 22, 1967) 43. Thanks to being in cute movies such as "13 Going On 30," this Hollywood cutie has created a charming image for himself, and is very hot.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (87 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
27. John Stamos
(B. August 19, 1963) 47. This guy was on "Full House" for a while and was quite a heartthrob, and now he's on "Glee." He's in his forties and he still looks pretty hot. There have been rumors about his behavior over the years, but who knows for sure.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (294 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
28. Matt Dillon

(B. February 18, 1964) 47. He was way hotter when he was a teen idol, but the sexiness isn't gone completely. No matter how old, he is still a sexy bad boy.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (585 ratings) 6.6  IMDB Rating
29. Matthew McConaughey

(B. November 4, 1969) 41. Matthew McConaughey is a really hot, sexy California surfer dude. He sorta reminds me of Owen Wilson, and he looks darn good in the Dolce Cabana ads. Good thing he hardly ever wears a shirt.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (1717 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
30. Keanu Reeves

(B. September 2, 1964) 46. A heartthrob in the era of Paula Abdul and Sandra Bullock, this exotic, partly Asian actor was always considered to be a real sex symbol.

Average listal rating (330 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating
31. Aaron Eckhart

(B. March 12, 1968) 43. This sexy blond actor looks pretty sharp and hot in all of his movies. He is famous for playing villain Harvey Dent/Two-Face in "The Dark Knight."
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (212 ratings) 6.8  IMDB Rating
32. David Wenham

(B. September 21, 1965) 45. This hot Australian actor is a brilliant actor, particularly for his moving portrayal of Faramir in the great "Lord Of The Rings" trilogy.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (553 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
33. Eric Bana
(B. August 9, 1968) 42. When I saw this actor in the trailer for "The Time Traveler's Wife," I was like "Who is that hot guy?" Just forget he's also King Henry 8th.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (490 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
34. Ethan Hawke
(B. November 6, 1970) 40. Another newbie into his forties, I thought this man was attractive when I first saw him in "Dead Poet's Society." And he's come a looong way from then!
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (395 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
35. Jason Isaacs

(B. June 6, 1963) 47. Thanks to a number of evil roles (in "The Patriot," "Peter Pan," and "Harry Potter"), he is known for playing the classy, sexy villain. I think he's particularly hot as Lucius Malfoy in HP.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (292 ratings) 6  IMDB Rating
36. Billy Zane
(B. February 24, 1966) 45. Though he's very bald in real life, he certainly isn't in his movies! He wowed female viewers with his sexiness in "Titanic" and "Charmed."
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (510 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
37. Javier Bardem

(B. March 1, 1969) 42. Married to Penelope Cruz, having co-starred in "Eat Pray Love," and nominated for an Academy Award this past year, this sexy Spanish star has quite a career for himself. He's pretty hot if you ask me.


Average listal rating (575 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
38. Brendan Fraser

(B. December 3, 1968) 42. Though not looking so great anymore, Brendan Fraser used to be hot and sexy. For that, he definitely deserves a place on this list.


Average listal rating (935 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
39. Russell Crowe

(B. April 7, 1964) 46. Though scruffy and pudgier now, and even though he has temper tantrums, Russell Crowe was hot and buff once a time. JUST saying.
americanchick's rating:


Average listal rating (1441 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
40. Edward Norton
(B. August 18, 1969) 41. He is a hot, talented actor and definitely deserves a place on this list.


 

Being a teenaged girl into movies and stuff, I can't lie and not admit that my heart still beats for some of the older actors in Hollywood. Here is a list of the 40 top hottest male actors in their 40s.
