Hollywood is full of hot men, and in fact, being extremely good looking is pretty much a requirement these days just to get your foot in the door. Some definitely rank better than others though.

In this list, we’ve compiled our picks for the 75 hottest male celebrities in Hollywood, starting with the least attractive and ending with the sexiest guy there is.

While many of these picks are your classic teenage heartthrobs from shows like Supernatural, or The Vampire Diaries, there are also a lot of older celebrities on the list as well.

While a lot of this is up to personal taste, everyone has that one celebrity that they just can’t stop dreaming about.

Sorry boyfriends and husbands out there, if Brad Pitt walks in the door, you better believe we’re going to notice. After all, it doesn’t hurt to look, right?

Anyway, without further ado, let’s begin. Number 75 on our list…
