There is nothing more beautiful or empowering than to see people who aren’t afraid to announce to the world who they truly are. And even though we feel a little pang in our hearts when some of Hollywood’s hottest men make it known that they’re not interested in us ladies, we still have to recognize a fine man when we see one. So, in honor of #MCM, here’s our list of the most beautiful gay men in Hollywood.
A part of us died inside when Empire star Jussie Smollett came out on Ellen. While we couldn’t be prouder of him, his silky, sexy voice paired with gorgeous come-hither-eyes still make him one of Hollywood’s hottest emerging stars and a true loss for the ladies.
It took us some time to come to terms with the fact that we didn’t have a shot with White Collar hottie Matt Bomer. With his piercing blue peepers and a body that would make any lady crazy, Bomer has quickly emerged as one of Hollywood’s most delicious stars. And with yet another turn in Magic Mike XXL coming up, Bomer will continue to taunt the lady folk with his hotness.
Canadian actor and musician Luke MacFarlane may not be the biggest name on our list, but he sure is one of the most handsome. This little hottie is probably best known for his role as Scotty Wandell on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters, but we know him all too well as one gorgeous guy who is into to other gorgeous guys — more on that later.
Wildly talented and always up for a new challenge, Zachary Quinto is one of our favorite actors. That’s why it was devastating when we found out that there was nothing us ladies could offer up to sway him in our direction. Tall, dark and handsome, unfortunately for us (and very happily for him), Quinto has been in a relationship with model Miles McMillan for several years.
Neil Patrick Harris
Who doesn’t love Neil Patrick Harris? Not only does he strike us as one of the nicest guys in the world, but he’s attractive, funny and incredibly talented.
We just can’t win, can we? So far, we’ve had to say so long to Matt Bomer, Jussie Smollett, among others. Now we have to come to the realization that Wentworth Miller is not picking up what us lady folk are putting down. He is reportedly seeing a fellow actor, Luke MacFarlane, who we mentioned a few slides back.
He can sing, he can dance, and he can sweep even Rachel Berry off her feet. Now if only Jonathan Groff’s love of the ladies carried over into real life.
The man has style, talent, and incredible charisma. But unfortunately Marc Jacobs has made no secret of his love of other equally attractive dudes. Lucky bastards!
He may be getting up there in age these days, but there is no denying that Rupert Everett is still one of the foxiest men in Hollywood. Sadly, he’s not looking for a lady to love and hasn’t been looking for quite some time.
She bangs, she bangs. Liar! We love you Ricky Martin, but you’re on our bad side for leading us on for as long as you did. Shaking those gorgeous buns across stages around the globe and wooing us with your incredible voice was just unfair! We didn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell to not fall for you.
Now this one hits close to home. When boy band *NSYNC was all the rage, every teenager had her favorite member. Mine: Lance Bass. I swooned and swayed to their hit songs and I appreciated him in all his low-voiced glory. But then he revealed that millions of adoring female fans were just not his cup of tea. More power to him, but he still broke my heart.
It crushed us when well-known TV personality, Anderson Cooper, the quintessential silver fox, revealed that he is gay. Sophisticated, smart and incredibly sexy, Cooper will always and forever have a special place in our hearts either way.
All we really have to say about this one is damn! Life isn’t fair.
Huck?!? While not the most classically handsome man on our list, Guillermo Diaz still had a sexy bit of mystery hiding behind those beautiful brown eyes. But despite those steamy love scenes between Huck and Quinn on Scandal, Diaz is out and proud.
