Fitted well in a movie and with a combination of factors, an actor could look remarkably handsome. Here is my list of the ten most handsome actors.
Usually an actor looks very ordinary in his private life, but a lot more handsome in the movies. The degree of handsomeness is decided by a combination of many factors, such as appealing outline of an actor, costume, makeup, favorable character and impression. Here I would like to share with you my personal pick. The list is presented in alphabetical order. All the images come from IMDb unless specify.
1. Al Pacino – Ocean Thirteen (2007) – Willy Bank
The movie is full of handsome men, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon and Andy Garcia. But, I find Al Pacino still outmatches others in the great competition. His Willy Bank has a unique masculinity to ooze from his contours and expression, making the character still looks cool even he is defeated.
2. Brad Pitt – Meet Joe Black (1998) – Joe Black
Joe Black is the Death personified in a man’s body. This Death is so handsomely portrayed in terms of outlook and manner that you almost want to run away with him.
3. George Clooney – The Peacemaker (1997) – Lt. Col. Thomas Devoe

Lt. Col. Thomas Devoe is a US Army colonel who has to work with a civilian woman to stop a terrorist. George Clooney is always good looking when he wears a suit, but this time he also looks smart and witty in military and army uniforms.
4. Johnny Depp – Pirates of the Caribbean (2003, 2006, 2007) – Jack Sparrow
Jack Sparrow is the world most famous pirate. Even the kids love him. Guess many people welcome Jack Sparrow to abduct them so that they can enjoy a free ride on the Black Pearl and have the fun with this charming character.
5. Keanu Reeves – The Matrix (1999) – Neo
Neo learns his way to realize his great mission. If there were any saviors in the movies, Neo must be the most handsome one. Cool, is he not?
6. Leonardo Dicapiro – Catch Me if You Can (2002) – Frank Abagnale Jr.
Frank Abagnale Jr. impersonates an airline pilot, doctor, history professor and they all look good. The scene of handsome Frank walking with a lot of beautiful flight attendants in a line is really eye-catching and memorable.
7. Orlando Bloom – The Lord of the Rings (2001, 2002, 2003) – Legolas Greenleaf
Legolas Greenleaf is a brave and trustworthy elf. The costume and the makeup work magically well. The elf looks fine and noble with a lithe impression.
8. Sean Connery – The Rock (1996) – John Patrick Mason
Sean Connery has acted James Bonds seven times and the character is portrayed as an attractive man. However, I find this actor looks more handsome when aging. There lies the masculinity, not from the muscles, but from the contours and manner that make John Patrick Mason appealing.
9. Tom Cruise – Top Gun (1986) – Maverick
Maverick captures a lot of ladies’ hearts. He looks cool in the air and on the ground. He also looks cool with the sunglasses.
10. Tom Hanks – Apollo 13 (1995) – Jim Lovell
(Screen capture from the trailer)
The photo illustrates Jim Lovell saying, “Houston, we have a problem.” The difficulty is handsomely presented in a sober manner. Tom Hanks looks well in the movie and more handsome than the real Jim Lovell.
After going through my list, if you do not see your favorite actors or you think the actors should be more handsome in some other movies, do not feel disappointed. Welcome to leave a message for me to check it out. I am always open to see more handsome men and expand this list.
