Let's face it, we've all swooned over a famous guy while watching a movie. Many of us have even fantasized about taking that particular celebrity home (or at least to a private space where we can let go of our dirtiest fantasy). Whether it is Henry Cavil, Chris Evans, or Jamie Foxx, at least one time in our lives, we can be found guilty as charged for having a wet dream starred by them.
However, aren't we tired of fantasizing with straight guys? Believe me, fantasy can lose its magic once we realize it's utterly impossible since they don't like dudes. Yes, we can still imagine we can "turn them," but it's a natural stretch. So, why don't we start fantasizing about the hottest gay actors Hollywood has to offer (and also start supporting their careers)?
There are tons of openly gay actors starring in movies and tv series on Netflix. So, let's turn around and look at these handsome hunks who are breaking it with their stunning looks, personality, charm, talent, and of course, courage to be themselves in the movie industry.
Top 10 Hottest Gay Actors
10) Lance Bass
If you grew up in the '90s and you were able to take your eyes off of Justin Timberlake's curly hair, then there's a chance you already had a crush on NSYNC's bass singer, Lance Bass. Pop culture was shooketh in 2006 when a member of one of the most popular boy bands in history came out. Lance announced his relationship with a contestant of the multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series "The Amazing Race."
Lance Bass published his autobiography titled "Out of Sync," clearing the air after paparazzi spied on him and his man. In October 2006, he was awarded the Human Rights Campaign's "Visibility Award" because of his activism for LGBTQ causes.
And you may say, "He's a singer, not an actor." Honey, pull yourself together; Lance has a broad movie career as he has appeared in films like "Such Good People" 2014, "Love Wrecked" (2005), and "On The Line" (2001). He's also appeared in TV series like "Insatiable" (2019) and did voice acting for the videogame "Kingdom Hearts 2" (2002), playing the evil Sephiroth.
So, he's done music, film, tv, and also videogames. What else could you ask for?!
9) Chris Colfer
If you're into twinks and like musical theater, this beautiful boy is destined to be in your dreams. He jumped into fame by interpreting one of the most famous openly gay characters of modern times, Kurt Hummel, from the musical TV series "Glee."
Chris has never been afraid to be himself, nor even from a young age when he was bullied for being "too open." He still dared to publicly come out to his fans in 2009, and since then, he hasn't stopped amazing us with his talent.
He's not just a pretty face and a great singer; he is also an incredible writer. He's the author of the "Land of Stories" book series and also scriptwriter, producer, and star of the movie "Struck by Lightning" (2012).
8) Zachary Quinto
He opted to come out in 2011 after the tragic death of teenager LGBTQ activist Jamey Rodemeyer, deciding to not hide who he was anymore. He has always stood proud of who he is, openly talking for the community and fighting to be a positive figure for young viewers.
Now, for the geeky gays, Zachary Quinto is a living wet dream for his interpretation of Spock in the latest "Star Trek" movies (2009-2016) and the evil Sylar from the TV series "Heroes" (2006-2010). He's also appeared in "American Horror Story: Asylum" (2012), so he has experience with horror.
From aliens to superheroes, to spooky scenes, if you're into geeky stuff, Zachary is just for you; besides, look at that intense gaze and thick eyebrows... swoon!
7) Wentworth Miller
The star of the TV series "Prison Break" hasn't always been too open about his sexuality, but that didn't stop us from fantasizing about prison cell adventures with him, am I right?
With those eyes, hot body, and buzz cut, Wentworth has always portrayed manly men in action-packed flicks like "Underworld" (2003) and "Resident Evil: Afterlife" (2010). Still, it didn't stop him from opening up about himself in 2014, talking about restrictive laws that discriminate against the LGBTQ community in other countries.
You like tough guys that look like they can choke you, and you'll just way "Thanks, daddy!" Wentworth Miller is the one to fantasize about.
6) Matt Bomer
Actor, philanthropist, with mesmerizing blue eyes, chiseled body, and a great smile, that's Matt Bomer. You can see him in the TV series "White Collar" and "American Horror Story." If you have a crush on Henry Cavil, Matt Bomer is like his equally handsome but gay cousin.
Also, philanthropy is hot as hell, and he's done his part on it. He came out at the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards in 2012 when receiving an award for his work in the movie "The Normal Heart." In his speech, he thanked his husband and their three kids for supporting his career.
So, can you picture yourself falling for a Ken doll with a heart of gold (and a sexy butt)? Keep an eye on Matt Bomer.
5) Keiynan Lonsdale
Young gays (and maybe not-so-young too) all swooned when he appeared in the teen gay flick "Love Simon" (2018), but this handsome heartthrob is a multitalented stud.
He's a singer, dancer, and musician who doesn't like labels when describing his sexuality. He's also a great fashion model who walked the runway during Paris Fashion Week. Keiynan appeared as an invited judge in RuPaul's Drag Race: All-Stars 4, and the queens competed for his heart in the 'Snatch Game of Love' task. So, talk about a bachelor!
4) Ben Whishaw
You like a boyish look with a profound and mature vibe, then you need to start paying attention to Ben Whishaw. You've seen it in blockbusters like "Mary Poppins Returns" (2018), "Suffragette" (2015), or "The Danish Girl" (2015). Do you want versatility? You got it; he was the voice of Paddington Bear in 2014 and played Millennial Q in the James Bond films "Skyfall" (2012), "Spectre" (2015), and "No Time To Die" (2021). So, he's versatile (if you know what I mean).
If we got excited when he came out in 2013, then we couldn't be even more excited when we talk about his relationship with Mark Bradshaw, with whom he's been in a civil partnership since 2012. What can be more relationship goals than having rhyming names?
3) Neil Patrick Harris
NPH is one of the most popular members of the gay community in Hollywood, and he's been very open about his sexuality since he came out in an interview in 2006. He's funny, elegant, and a fantastic singer, so he's totally husband material.
Many people were shocked when he came out as they identified him for his role as the suave womanizer Barney on "How I Met Your Mother" (2005-2014). Even he was surprised when he realized he was gay back in the '80s, and Burt Raynolds jokingly kissed him. Imagine it; Burt Raynolds kisses you, and you know you're gay... (I mean, who wouldn't).
Neil Patrick Harris starred in the 2021 BBC hit Series "It's A Sin," so you can watch him nail a British accent that'll turn your knees into butter.
2) Jeffery Bowyer-Chapman
Fashion model, actor, and drag race judge, Jeffrey is a charming man with a gorgeous smile that'll slide into your heart and wildest dreams. His Jamaican blood is just the perfect spice for this beautiful man who grew up in Alberta, Canada, and knew that he wanted to be an actor from a young age.
His adoptive family supported his career, starting as a fashion model since he was sixteen. He made it big when he landed the role of Jay in the TV series "Unreal" (2015-2018), where the producers decided to re-write his character (initially straight) to be more authentic to the actor portraying him.
Now, you can see Jeffrey as a judge on the RuPaul Drag Race Canada spinoff and keep getting mesmerized by that smile.
1) Luke Evans
Luke Evans is undoubtedly one of the biggest stars to come out recently, and he's also a very versatile (yes, I said it) actor. He's appeared as Dracula in "Dracula Untold" (2014), and he was the brave Bard the Bowman; he was also the egotistic Gaston in the live-action version of Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" (2017).
Even before coming out, he was never too open about his preferences in a partner because of pressure from agents and publicists. Still, he doesn't deny the facts either. If you follow his Insta account, you'll see some adorable pictures of him with his (former) partner, the director Rafa Olarra; you'll see some candid thirst traps as well, as he has this hot bod to share with the world on social media.
He'll appear soon in a spinoff of the "Beauty and the Beast", starred by his character Gaston, who will share the screen with his side-kick LeFou (Disney's proud first official gay character). You can feel the sexual (I mean, romantic) tension between those two characters in the movie. Hopefully, the series will go deeper (pun intended) into that topic (honestly, I doubt that happens, but one can dream).
