Most people say eyes are the first thing they notice in a face. So, obviously, when we see any shade of blue in them, we feel an automatic push towards the person. As far as actors are concerned, these eyes leave a lasting impression. Many veterans of the film industry possess this trait, for example, who cannot remember Paul Newman from the fifties, a Yale graduate with military experience who was a treat to watch in his iconic roles. If you are not a Newman fan, turn your head towards his co-star- James Dean. History couldn’t reflect more accurately, how beautiful blue-eyed men can be. If we jump to more recent times, legends of our generation, such as Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise are killing us with their deep blue eyes. Even though it is impossible to get over these names, there is a young brigade out there waiting for us to get lost in their eyes. Here is a list to help you find them:-
10. Bradley Cooper
People magazine named him the “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2011 and they did it rightfully so. Who else can carry a dirty grunge look so effortlessly? The gorgeous 40 plus actor, who was once seen dumping Carrie in Sex And The City, Season 2 (Episode 4), has charmed his way into our hearts. The boy has worked on his hair and his style game, he is now a tall gorgeous man. Movies like Silver Lining Playbook, Limitless, American Sniper and Hangover series prove that the man can play any kind of character looking the same- Flawless.
9. Brant Daugherty
You may remember this August baby from Anger Management, working it alongside Charlie Sheen. This blue-eyed stunner showed us his moves on the 17th season of Dancing with the Stars, where he finished 7th. Even though he is yet to show some real steel on the big screen, we find him irresistible on the smaller one.
8. Chase Crawford
He might still be known as Nate Archibald from teen drama- The Gossip Girl, the boy next door we were all rooting for. Even though he looked short standing next to Blake Lively throughout that show, he really is 5 feet 10 inches in reality. This 30-year-old star still manages to look like he is in his early 20s and we have no idea how he pulls off that perfect hairdo every single time with ease. He bagged Teen Choice TV Breakout Star in 2008 and went on to be named “Hottest Bachelor” in 2009.
7. Chris Pines
The dreamy love interest of Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries 2 and the raunchy agent in This Means War or James Kirk in Star Trek Series, he is also the voice behind our beloved Jack Frost in Rise of the Guardians. The poised actor studied at the American Conservatory Theater after completing his Bachelor’s degree in English. Well, one thing is for sure that the title Biggest Badass Star given to him during MTV Movie Awards, was very well deserved.
6. Justin Timberlake
There are way too many reasons to love this person- his singing, song writing, acting or even his humility but what he really needs to be loved for is his guts (in reference to his collaborations with The Lonely Island). His boy next door looks and cute impressions are additions to those deep eyes. Even Taylor Swift is a huge fan!
5. Chris Hemsworth
Rocking leather, metallic bands and a red cape sounds almost impossible, but Chris Hemsworth does as effortlessly as he waves his perfect blonde hair in the air. Long hair or short, we cannot get enough of him. After all, he is the only one who can fight and pick up that wretched hammer and give it to the enemies while caring so deeply about his evil brother and human love interest. Thor was an important role but let’s not forget Snow White and the Huntsman, where he transforms himself from a drunkard to a selfless savior. This Australian has the world swooning over him.
4. Ian Somerhalder
This name needs no introduction after the massive success of TV series like Lost and The Vampire Diaries where he plays the role of Damon and as him, Ian gets to dance, fight, romance and what not. Even when he danced around with Vikki as the devil in season 1, his abs looked like straight out of a painting. Apart from his roles on the screen, he plays some in real life too, by supporting Causes such as “It gets better” and “The Trevor Project”. He won the Teen Choice award for Choice Male hottie in 2014 and was nominated for Choice TV actor in the category Sci-fi/ Fantasy in 2015. His wedding with Nikki Reed was most talked about in April 2015 and gave people serious marriage goals.
3. Chris Evans
Too many Chris’s in this list? Nah, there is no such thing, they are all so beautiful. Let’s take a walk done the memory lane for him. His first super hero act was that of the Human Torch in The Fantastic Four and the world still remembers his snow diving adventure. His screen presence in The Nanny Diaries was short but left its mark while his real recognition came with Captain America. Super hero roles or not, this actor got a thumbs up from his massive female fan base every single time.
2. Zac Efron

Blue eyes – check
Perfect hero hair – check
Disney Connection – check
People remember Zac as young Troy Bolton from High School Musical but what most fans don’t know is that he starred in various TV series before getting his big breakthrough. He did guest roles in series like Firefly, ER, The Guardian, CSI: Miami, Suite Life of Zack and Cody etc. Before he was Troy Bolton, he was Steve Morgan of Miracle Run, a role for which he was nominated for a young artist award. Since HSM, he has outdone his sexy self in movies like Neighbours and The Awkward Moment but the real winner was Charlie St. Cloud. One thing is for sure, there is more to come our way from this hunk.
The whole world wanted Jack to get on the wooden plank with Rose and walk into sunset together but that is not something we can help with. However, putting him first on this list that we can do. On a more serious note, he can be 90 and still be at the top of any list. Those flawless portrayals and that unavoidable grin plus the honour of having played Jack in Titanic has made him every girl’s dream man. He never ceases to amaze his audiences with his skills, may it be roles like The Revenant or Wolf of Wall Street.
