    disagree with alot of the newer ones, and the order you put them in.. considering Depp has been around for ever while Pattison only just made it big screen.

    Plus both Pattison and Laughtiner are only known for one role. Sure, they are hot but I believe being a “sex symbol” involves some ammount of class and timelessness that they do not yet possess. Point is, it’s pretty much impossible to accredit young actors who became famous within the last decade as symbols, because we have absolutly no idea how memorable and sucessful they will they will continue to be.

    I am shocked that RPatz and Taylor whats-his-face made this list. I understand people think they’re sexy, but it is one role and only 3 years of sexiness. What about Freddie Prinze Jr.? Leonardo DiCaprio? They are much more sex symbols than the Twitard guys.

    I am also dismayed that Marlon Brando didn’t make this list… Yes, his appearance in Apocalypse Now was shocking but in films like Guys and Dolls he was gorgeous. Like, cause-my-ovaries-to-swell gorgeous.

      For Real!!! You’re seriously going to put Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner in a list with Cary Grant, James Dean, Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and Harrison Ford??? Please!! I was expecting a sarcastic comment about them being oh-so-sexy when I first saw their pictures. They may be attractive to some people (another thing I don’t get), but they certainly don’t have the talent to run with the big boys higher up in the list.

    How on EARTH can you do this list and NOT have Steve McQueen? Man’s man, hot, brooding, in love with Ali MacGraw, raced cars and motorcycles…and hello, BULLITT.

    Denzel didn’t win for The Hurricane, only for Training Day. He was *nominated* for The Hurricane.

    There’s only one person I really feel is missing from this list and that is Gregory Peck. Joe in Roman Holiday? YES PLEASE!

    The absence of Brando and the presence of Pattinson and Lautner make this a questionable list. And, as someone else has mentioned, Washington has won only one lead actor Oscar and that was for Training Day.

    I don’t really think refusing to do a film about being a statuatory rapist makes you a puritan…

    Ok I’m a bloke and even I’m amazed you missed Leonardo DiCaprio. He was THE guy chicks swooned over in the 90’s and still do today. And Twilight dudes? Besides, those abs on Lautner are obviously shopped.

      Wow, yes! I didn’t notice, but that’s so true. Leo should definitely be on this list!

    All the great ones of the past up to the 90s’ what the heck happened to what we consider a male sex symbol i will never know.Just shows older generations will always be the best.However i agree with Jhonny Depp but can’t you replace Robert and Taylor with men..you know of age to be a sex symbol.How about actors like Jude law,Matthew Mcconaughey and there are many more deserving of the list that had ol blue eyes and dean on it.

    How could you not include the sexiest man that ever walked the planet – Marlon Brando????

    Only a few things to say :
    1. You forgot Yul Bryner, who was smokin’ hot and waaay ahead of his time
    2. Both Sean Connery and Johnny Depp don’t belong to a single decade.
    3. You really blew it with the 2000’s selection. Can’t believe you can add those 2. They are this famous because of marketing, not their own merit, plus they don;t even look good. Pattison is hideous and completely asimetric, while lutner is just another playmate bundle o muscles

    I’m going to stifle my laughter at the inclusion of Robert Pattinson just long enough to protest the omission of Tyrone Power. Much like Michelle Pfeiffer, people who met Power said he was even more beautiful in person. As if that is possible….

    I do really like your list but have to agree with the ones who don’t like your more recent picks. The problem is they probably won’t stand the test of time.
    Tyrone Power is a reasonable suggestion for looks but I’m not so sure he would be considered one of the all time greats! Gregory Peck was a good suggestion. I might also suggest Montgomery Clift from way back when.
    I do agree with Clint Eastwood, (especially over Burt Reynolds). Definitely Steve McQueen. As a modern hunk with talent too I would suggest Pierce Brosnan, and Robert Downey, Jr.
    And get ready for a new name in the talented hunk stratosphere the up and coming Richard Armitage! Currently starring in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit (still being filmed in New Zealand). He was be a sensation when people finally learn about his amazing talent and smoking hot good looks!

      Sorry, He “will be” a sensation! I was going to say.. He was also in the BBC’s North and South (not the one with Patrick Swayze). This was a dramatization of the novel by Elizabeth Gaskell about the clash between the social classes in Victorian Age Britain.
