While many of our love interests this year have been on the other side of the screen, we have had some brilliant role models. From the dashing leading man of The Commuter to the rugged, yet vulnerable star of The Rover, we have been witness to some breathtaking cinematic moments.
But now that the awards season has arrived, it’s time to rank our top five most attractive movie lovers.
#5. Matthew Hussey
Matthew Hussey stars as Michael Arndt, a man who, after falling out of love with his wife Kate (Jennifer Jason Leigh), copes with loneliness by compulsively watching TV. Arndt, who works for a TV station, is attached to his phone – to the point where he becomes almost a human Pac-Man – while on duty. This leads to a string of comedic mishaps that ultimately causes him to question the sanity of his compulsive behaviour and reconnect with his estranged wife. Behind the scenes, the handsome English actor has had a busy year, starring in big-budget spectaculars like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and The Commuter, as well as small-scale family films like I, Tonya and Black and White.
#4. Emma Watson
Emma Watson has grown into a remarkable young woman in the movie world, starring in both blockbuster and independent films alike. The actress plays an Oxford student torn between her academic and social pursuits, leading to some incredible on-screen chemistry with her fellow actor Tom Hanks. This year alone, Watson has starred in the big-ticket movies The Maze Runner: The Death Cure and The House of Gucci, as well as the beloved coming-of-age comedy Revival.
#3. Robert Pattinson
If you’re on this list, then you have to be aware of the recent phenomenon that is Robert Pattinson. The British actor is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors, with a string of celebrity dating and engagement turns to his name. While many of our other bachelors this year have had to settle for some long-distance love, Robert Pattinson’s had the lucky fortune to be proposed to by none other than the Queen herself. The actor has been at the forefront of the current romantic revolution, appearing in some of Hollywood’s biggest and most beloved movies this year. Amongst his many on-screen offerings this year are the ensemble comedy The Hustle, the apocalyptic thriller Udalgerdu, and lead roles in the World War II epic The Lost Prince and the zombie flick The Walking Dead.
#2. Tom Hanks
It’s almost become an annual ritual: every year, one of our top five most attractive personals lists is dedicated to one of our favourite actors, Tom Hanks. The five times Oscar winner has been responsible for some of the greatest films of all time, and continues to grace our screens with his charm and presence. This year has been no exception, with the actor appearing in some of Hollywood’s biggest and most beloved films, including Toy Story 4, Sole Survivor, and The Circle.
#1. Leonardo DiCaprio
It would be remiss of us to not include one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors on this list. After spending years in the wilderness following his on-again, off-again relationship with actor Jennifer Lopez, Leonardo DiCaprio has returned to form, marrying television personality Sofia Vergara in February 2019. While many of our other bachelors this year have had to settle for some long-distance love, DiCaprio’s had the good fortune to be engaged to be married to the woman he loves.
