The Top 10 Hottest Guys Right Now

There are so many things to love about being a woman.  Getting dolled up for a special night out, shopping for shoes, and a longer life expectancy merely skim the surface. We also get to laugh with our girlfriends at all the ways unknowing guys across the bar try to impress us. You see, one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a woman is relishing in the mystique of our counterpart: men.  Especially hot ones.
 
Here at Her Campus, we just hate to be predictable. So we compiled a list of the ten hottest Kens having a moment right now, for your pleasure only. Take a moment to relax in a leather recliner, light a cigar, peruse our choices and bask in the beauty of the chosen ten. 
 
Think there’s someone we egregiously left off the list?  Nominate him in the Comments section.

10. Joseph Gordon-Levitt: 

Status: Model/Actress Girlfriend
Transitioning from child star to bona fide adult actor can be tricky (just ask any of the Tanner children) but Gordon-Levitt made it seamlessly. Despite watching him grow up before our very eyes as a cute boy-next-door, his ass-kicking role alongside Leo in Inception proved JGL has matured into a full-fledged heartthrob.
 
9. Shemar Moore: 

Status: Single
Former model Moore packs some serious man candy in his stint playing FBI agent Derek Morgan on the CBS television show Criminal Minds.  More than just a pretty face and body, he spends his time solving fictitious crimes and cycling to raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis.
 
8. Xavier Samuel: 

Status: Model Girlfriend
In order to remain politically correct among our readers, we’re opting to bypass the overplayed Edward/Jacob dichotomy. Especially when Australian hottie Xavier Samuel had us immediately captivated at the beginning of Eclipse, making it easy to forget about those other vamps. Edward who?

7. Adrian Peterson:

Status: Taken
Football, and sports in general, produce marvelously chiseled members of the male species.  Akin to a Greek god, Viking’s superstar running back Adrian Peterson is a specimen of physical toughness, incredible speed, and agility. His nickname is “All Day”, and we’re hoping that transfers outside the playing field. Watch his commercial for Gatorade if you can stand a few heart palpitations.

 
6. James Franco: 

Status: Single
It’s sort of mind-boggling to try and pinpoint exactly what makes Mr. James Franco so universally attractive, so we won’t try. This versatile thespian possesses an intangible quality of magnetism, drawing women of all ages to worship at the altar of Franco. Whether he plays a stoner or a crazed villain, it doesn’t matter. He radiates.
 
5. Michael C. Hall: 

Status: Married to costar Jennifer Carpenter
As the star and executive producer of the hit show Dexter, Michael Carlyle Hall is so mischievously irresistible he’ll have you rooting for a serial killer.  Catch a few episodes, and his charming persona and rugged looks will have you poised to do more than just cheer. 
 
4. Jon Hamm: 

Status: Long-term Girlfriend
The archetypal tall, dark, and handsome Hamm plays a confused and complicated Don Draper on television’s most cultivated show, Mad Men. This ideal of a man may be a throwback to a bygone era, but the sight of Hamm suited up, hat on head and briefcase in hand, is enough to launch a thousand modern fantasies.

3. David Beckham:

Status: Married (With Children)
 For how scientifically symmetrical this soccer stud is, David Beckham is actually a freak of nature. Think about it: how many times have you come across a guy equivalent to Beckham’s outright, indubitable pulchritude? Yeah, it’s never. He’s on another stratosphere.
 
2. Ryan Gosling:

Status: Single
We all fell for this loveable actor who immortalized Noah Calhoun and made all of our romantic-comedy dreams come true in The Notebook. But something tells me Gosling, who stars in December’s gritty, NC-17 rated Blue Valentine with Michelle Williams, is about to get seriously sexy.
 
1. Jake Gyllenhaal: 

Whether Jake-like men exist on college campuses remains to be seen.
 
Status: Swift
All hail modern-day Renaissance man Jake Gyllenhaal. Intelligent, passionate, and civic-minded, unpretentious, humorous, and talented, I can spare no adjectives- he’s the ultimate epitome of a man. But this is a celebration of vanity! Shaven, bearded, beefed up, slimmed down, Gyllenhaal’s studliness range is also ten-fold. Absolutely nothing can diminish the light shining through his piercing, provocative blue eyes. Trust the talk of elegant and Harvard-educated actress Natalie Portman, who names Gyllenhaal as a close pal: “He’s perfect. Too bad he’s ugly.”
