Some movie-goers obsess over intricate plots. Others live for the incredible special effects or diverse, relatable characters. But not us, no. Today, we're looking at what really matters in the world of cinema: the hunky heartthrobs! It's safe to say that while we do all love an engaging storyline and a wild visual experience, we'd often buy tickets to a film due to one thing and one thing only: the starring actor!
Without even watching a trailer or reading a movie description, some actors just carry such an allure with their high status, talent, and of course, their looks, that a name on a film poster is all it takes for us to throw our money away.
Hollywood is full to the brim with talented and beautiful people. From the cuties like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio who have been around for what seems like an eternity, to the up-and-comers like Tom Holland and Michael B. Jordan, we're certainly spoiled for choice.
Anyway, it's about time that we stopped rambling and actually got stuck into this quiz! All you need to do is choose your preferred actor from the two options, and then once all is said and done, we'll reveal your perfect Hollywood man! Sound good? Let's go!
Johnny Depp or Mark Wahlberg?
We're starting this quiz off just the right way, and that's with two of Hollywood's big shots. We can't even imagine the absurd combine wealth that these two actors would have if they joined forces. IMDB considers Johnny Depp to be "perhaps one of the most versatile actors of his day and age in Hollywood". He is perhaps most famous for for his role as Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Mark Wahlberg, on the other hand, "made the transition from teen pop idol to acclaimed actor" (IMDB) and is known for films like Ted and The Other Guys.
Mark Wahlberg or Jim Carrey?
Along with Ted and The Other Guys, Mark Wahlberg has also starred in The Departed, Entourage and Patriot's Day. His face is certainly one of the most recognisable in the industry. Speaking of faces in the industry, there is none more malleable than that of comedy genius, Jim Carrey. Both of these actors have the ability to make us laugh. While Wahlberg has diversified his filmography a little more, Carrey has always remained within the realm of comedy. Who will you choose?
Jim Carrey or Bradley Cooper?
Jim Carrey "rose to fame as a cast member of the Fox sketch comedy In Living Color (1990) but leading roles in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), Dumb and Dumber (1994) and The Mask (1994) established him as a bankable comedy actor" (IMDB). Bradley Cooper, on the other hand, recently appeared in the award-winning musical A Star Is Born, which slingshotted him back to the top of the Hollywood world (although, he didn't really ever leave). Which will you choose?
Bradley Cooper or Ryan Gosling?
Apart from his obvious and mega-successful recent role as Jack in A Star Is Born alongside Lady Gaga, this Hollywood Heartrob has starred in plenty of other big-name films. Among them are Guardians of the Galaxy, Valentine's Day, The Hangover, and War Dogs, just to name a few. That's not a bad first option. But the second option, a certain man by the name of Ryan Gosling, has his poster hung on the bedroom wall of countless diehard fans. Which one will you choose?
Ryan Gosling or Chris Hemsworth?
From La La Land (with Emma Stone) and The Notebook (with Rachel McAdams) to Drive and every film in between, we've been blessed to witness Ryan Gosling on the big screen. In total, according to IMDB, he's amassed 43 acting credits so far, and we can be darn sure that he's not even close to being done yet. While he's no doubt a hunky man, our second option in this question is equally desirable, if not more so. Plus, Chris Hemsworth comes with a cute Aussie accent as a little bonus.
Chris Hemsworth or Benedict Cumberbatch
Chris Hemsworth, or perhaps better known as the Marvel superhero, Thor hails from Down Under and has impressed us with his talent (and looks) since day one. If you have a fancy for actors with a foreign accent, then your answer to this question may depend on whether you prefer the UK or Australia. Our second option, Benedict Cumberbatch, who hails from London, is quite the catch himself. So then, which one are you going to choose? There's no wrong answer here!
Benedict Cumberbatch or Hugh Grant?
It's a battle of the UK actors in this question, with both of these heartthrobs hailing from across the pond. Benedict Cumberbatch has been an important contributor to the MCU with his role as Doctor Strange spanning across a number of superhero movies. Over his film and TV journey, he's amassed a total of 78 appearances (according to IMDB). Our second option, Hugh Grant, is as suave and charming as they come. Trust us when we say that both of these boys could steal your heart.
Hugh Grant or Channing Tatum?
Hugh Grant, as told by IMDB, "has been equally entertaining on-screen as well as in real life, and has had enough sense of humor to survive a media frenzy. He is known for his roles in Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994), with Andie MacDowell, Notting Hill (1999), opposite Julia Roberts, and Music and Lyrics (2007)." He's all class. On the other hand, Channing Tatum is all muscle! We'll face a lot of difficult choices in our lives, but none quite as hard as this one.
Channing Tatum or Dwayne Johnson?
If you thought that Channing Tatum was carved out of stone, then just have a look at him next to Dwayne Johnson and then you might be reconsidering. Channing Tatum has starred in plenty of films, some of which include 21 Jump Street, Magic Mike, Magic Mike XXL, and The Lego Movie. Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock), on the other hand, is perhaps the most famous actor in Hollywood at the moment. Which of these two A-list hunks takes the cake?
Dwayne Johnson or Adam Sandler?
Dwayne Johnson made the transition for star wrestler to star actor and he's been wildly successful in both of those industries. Perhaps the most well-known person in the industry at the moment, Dwayne is constantly putting out new movies (usually ones which somehow show off his giant muscles). He's definitely an action genre actor, while our second option, Adam Sandler, goes hand in hand with comedy. Perhaps this comes down to our preference in genre then. Which one will you choose?
Adam Sandler or Hugh Jackman?
When we think of comedy movies, there are a handful of names that immediately come to mind. Adam Sandler is certainly one of those names. The actor has appeared in 74 different productions (as told by IMDB), including Grown Ups, Funny People, and You Don't Mess with the Zohan, and that's just scraping the surface. As for our second option, he's going to be hard to pass up. Hugh Jackman is a heartthrob, through and through. Which one takes the cake?
Hugh Jackman or Daniel Radcliffe?
Hailing all the way from Australia, Hugh Jackman has been impressing us with his on-screen performances for a number of years. While he is perhaps best known for his role as Wolverine (for which he holds a Guinness World Record), he also performed exceptionally well in Les Miserables and The Greatest Showman. Just as Jackman is associated with Wolverine, our second option, Daniel Radcliffe, is synonymous with a certain magical wizard. Does Wolverine tickle your fancy, or does Harry Potter?
Daniel Radcliffe or Vin Diesel?
For Daniel Radcliffe, it all started with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone back in 2001. Since then, he's been slingshotted into A-list status and hasn't moved an inch since. His ability to act and perform is second to none, and he's been able to move away from the Harry Potter role and diversify his portfolio thereafter. Our second choice is muscles upon muscles with Vin Diesel. These two are certain at opposite ends of the spectrum, so which one will you choose?
Vin Diesel or Ben Affleck?
Even though he has appeared in films such as The Pacifier, Guardians of the Galaxy and Saving Private Ryan, Vin Diesel is, without a doubt, best known for his ongoing role as Dominic Toretto in the Fast and the Furious franchise. He is certainly one of the more hunky men in Hollywood. Speak of hunky men, our second option can firmly put himself into that category as well. Does Ben Affleck appeal to you more than Vin Diesel, or vice versa?
Ben Affleck or Steve Carell?
Ben Affleck is talented and chiseled, and we'd be happy to be sharing a pizza on the couch with him any night. This Hollywood star has a truckload of acting, producing, writing and directing credits on IMDB, highlighted by roles in films such as Argo, Justice League, The Accountant, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While Affleck is an action man, our second choice, Steve Carell is undoubtedly a comedy man. Is the star of The Office your first choice, or is Affleck?
Steve Carell or Chris Evans?
We can almost guarantee that life alongside Steve Carell would be nothing but laughs. The TV and film star is most known for his longstanding role as Michael Scott on The Office, however, his filmography expands far beyond just the small screen. On the other hand, we've got Captain America himself, Chris Evans. Both of these men are great choices, but which ones stands above the other? Are we all about laughs or all about action? It's time to pick!
Chris Evans or Paul Rudd?
If you're looking for a superhero partner to be hitched with, you can't do much better than Hollywood heartthrob, Chris Evans. He's been impressing on the big screen thanks to his captivating role as Captin America in a number of MCU films, and the recent release of Avengers: Endgame has made sure his name isn't disappearing from the spotlight any time soon. He's a great choice, but so is Paul Rudd, who plays the role of Ant-Man, and who definitely has humour on his side! Which one are we going to choose?
Paul Rudd or Zac Efron?
Paul Rudd has notched up a whopping 112 acting credits on IMDB, through a combination of film and TV performances. Among some of his most famous roles is Ant-Man in the film of the same title as well as its sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp. This Is 40, Dinner for Shmucks, and The Perks of Being a Wallflower are some of his other well-known films. As for our other option, Zac Efron needs no introduction! Which one are we going to choose?
Zac Efron or Jason Bateman?
After getting his big break in High School Musical, Zac Efron has managed to move away from his typecast as the cute teenager and move into more serious and dramatic roles, including the portrayal of Ted Bundy. Efron is a versatile performer and would make an ideal partner for any of us who would be lucky to have him. In the other corner, we've got Jason Bateman, "known for his role as Michael Bluth on the television sitcom Arrested Development (2003)" (IMDB) as well as plenty of films. Which will you choose?
Jason Bateman or Robert Pattinson?
Apart from his most well-known TV role on Arrested Development, Jason Bateman also stars in the recent and well-received Netflix show, Ozark. On the big screen, Bateman has starred in a long list of films, among them Office Christmas Party and Zootopia (by voice, of course). And in the other corner, we've got another film and TV star, Twilight's Robert Pattinson! So then, from these two choices, which one stands out over the other? It's time to make a choice!
Robert Pattinson or Josh Hutcherson?
With his role as Edward Cullen in the Twilight films, Robert Pattinson's face ended up postered on many fans' bedroom walls, without a doubt. The actor has plenty of other performance to be proud about as well, including parts in the Harry Potter films as Cedric Diggory. If you're a fan of Pattinson, you're probably a *big* fan of Pattinson. In the other corner we have the versatile Josh Hutcherson, who's also delivered plenty of impressive performances, such as Peeta in The Hunger Games.
Josh Hutcherson or Ryan Reynolds?
Apart from his relatively recent and acclaimed role as Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games franchise alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson has put on great performances in films such as Zathura, Bridge to Terabithia, and Red Dawn. He started his acting journey early and hasn't looked back since. He's both talented and a looker. On the other hand, we've got one of Hollywood's funniest men and the star of Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds. So, which of these two guys are you going to pick?
Ryan Reynolds or Jonah Hill?
We're going to have to ask Blake Lively to take a step back for a minute, because, for this situation, Ryan Reynolds is definitely on the table. This Hollywood star is the man behind the mask in Deadpool but has also appeared in films such as The Proposal and the eagerly anticipated Pokémon Detective Pikachu. Fighting against Reynolds for your love is funnyman Jonah Hill! A life with Jonah would be a life of laughter, so which one will you choose?
Jonah Hill or Jesse Eisenberg?
Jonah Hill has appeared 21 Jump Street, 22 Jump Street, and The Wolf of Wall Street (we're seeing a bit of a pattern here...). One of the films that helped to put him on the map, however, was the cult comedy classic, Superbad. He's option one. Option two is Jesse Eisenberg, who has starred in plenty of his own films over the years, including The Social Network and Zombieland. Do you prefer one of these stars over the other? Make your choice.
Jesse Eisenberg or Mark Ruffalo?
In addition to The Social Network and Zombieland, Jesse Eisenberg also starred in the awesome magical movie Now You See Me (as well as its sequel). As told be IMDB, he has a pretty fast-talking voice, which is certainly identifiable to his characters across a number of films. Our second option, in this case, is the famous Hollywood man, Mark Ruffalo! Both of these guys would be great choices, but sadly we can't have them both. It's time to make a choice.
Mark Ruffalo or Michael B. Jordan?
As much as we love Mark Ruffalo, we'd be a little worried to have him as a partner considering that we've become well aware of what his angry side looks like. For those who have no idea what we're talking about, Ruffalo is famous for his role as the mean, green Hulk! We like to think that his good nature is more important, however. Up against him is the up and coming star, Michael B. Jordan. Which one will you choose?
Michael B. Jordan or Brad Pitt?
Michael B. Jordan has accrued an impressive 47 acting credits on IMDB and he's only just getting started! This actor has made a name for himself thanks to his roles in Black Panther, Fantastic Four, and Fahrenheit 451. He's also done plenty of TV work over his time in the spotlight. Up against Michael B. Jordan is a man who seems to have dominated the industry for decades now, and that's Brad Pitt! Do you prefer one over the other?
Brad Pitt or Zach Galifianakis?
The amount of films that Brad Pitt has starred in (and we're talking high-quality films as well) is almost countless. Form the cult classic, Fight Club, which he starred in toward the early stages of his Hollywood time, to more recent performances in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Moneyball, and Django Unchained, Pitt has never had a quiet moment. Up against Pitt in this question is the hilarious Zach Galifianakis! Which of these two men are you going to pick?
Zach Galifianakis or Tom Cruise?
Zach Galifianakis has been making audiences of all ages laugh for a number of years now, mainly thanks to his role of Alan in The Hangover, The Hangover Part II, and The Hangover Part III. He also has his own hilarious talk show: Between Two Ferns. Life would never be dull with this guy by your side. On the other hand, we can guarantee that things wouldn't be dull if you ended up with the action star Tom Cruise either! Who's it gonna be?
Tom Cruise or Denzel Washington?
If you're up for a Hollywood man who loves to jump out of planes, from moving cars, and anything action and adventure related, then look no further than Tom Cruise! Among his long list of films, Top Gun and Mission Impossible headline the bunch. Our second choice in this situation is certainly no stranger to all things action as well! Denzel Washington would be a fine choice, but does he impress you more than Tom Cruise does? It's time to choose!
Denzel Washington or Dev Patel?
With an exhausting list of films that include Fences, Safe House, The Book of Eli, Devil in a Blue Dress, and Remember The Titans, it's no secret that Denzel Washington is extremely talented. He'd make a fine choice for a long lost soulmate. In the opposing corner, we've got a seriously impressive actor by the name of Dev Patel! Both of these guys have shown their abilities on the big screen, and now you've got to show us which one you'd choose.
Dev Patel or Ben Stiller?
If you haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire or Lion, then we suggest you clear your weekend schedule, grab some popcorn and watch these two incredible films (both of which star Dev Patel, of course). This actor would be a fine choice, there's no doubt about that. But we've got another Hollywood man fighting for your love here as well, and that's funnyman Ben Stiller. Which of these two impresses more than the other? Are you a Dev fan or a Ben fan?
Ben Stiller or Rupert Grint?
Ben Stiller turned heads (even though he couldn't turn left) in Zoolander, but disappointed in Zoolander 2 (seriously, why did they even make a sequel?). Nevertheless, his time in Hollywood has been littered with plenty of impressive and memorable performances, and he'd be a great catch for anyone who could tie him down. On the flipside, we've got Ron Weasley himself, Rupert Grint. Does Rupert's red hair tickle your fancy, or does Ben's humour reign supreme? Who's it gonna be?
Rupert Grint or Jared Leto?
Alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson, Rupert Grint slingshotted himself into ultimate fame when he was cast in the Harry Potter series. A decade and eight films later and he's now moved into a number of other roles, trying to leave the associated with Ron behind, albeit rather unsuccessfully compared to his costars. Nevertheless, he's definitely a catch! In the other corner, we've got the wonderful and talented Jared Leto! So, do you prefer one of these men over the other?
Jared Leto or Jason Momoa?
Whether he's rocking short hair or long locks, Jared Leto is nothing less than impressive. Among his 56 acting credits (according to IMDB) are Blade Runner 2049, Dallas Buyers Club and The Outsider. Oh, and did we mention that he's part of the band 30 Seconds to Mars? He'll certainly be hard to top, but if anyone can do it, it's going to be our second candidate! Aquaman, AKA Jason Momoa has plenty of dedicated fans himself. Which one will you choose?
Jason Momoa or Christian Bale?
While Jason Momoa really sent himself into the spotlight with his role as Aquaman, it was his portrayal of Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones that really put him on the map in the first place. According to IMDB, he has 31 acting credits, but he's just getting started and has plenty of amazing material left in him. He's a great choice, but Christian Bale might have something to say about that! Which of the two will you be picking?
Christian Bale or John Krasinski?
Christian Bale has impressed us on the big screen not only as Batman in The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, but in 50 other film and TV projects as well. Some of these include the voice of Bagheera in Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, as well as Michael Burry in The Big Short. Up against Bale is John Krasinski, a man who has been delivering laughs for plenty of years on the hit TV show, The Office. Which one's it gonna be?
John Krasinski or Chris Pratt?
"Tall, handsome film and television star John Krasinski is known for his role as sardonic nice guy Jim Halpert on NBC's popular TV series, The Office (2005), for which he won a 2007 and 2008 Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series" (IMDB). Up against Krasinski is another funny man, Chris Pratt! Pratt has appeared in both TV and film, but so has Krasinski. It's a tough choice but it's one you need to make!
Chris Pratt or Ashton Kutcher?
Chris Pratt, as told by IMDB, "came to prominence for his small-screen roles, including Bright Abbott in Everwood (2002), Ché in The O.C. (2003), and Andy Dwyer and Parks and Recreation (2009)". Thereafter, he dove into the world of cinema and really established himself as Star-Lord (AKA Peter Quill) in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy 2. We're pitting him against the highly lovable, funny and talented Ashton Kutcher! Who is going to win this round?
Ashton Kutcher or Tom Holland?
Ashton Kutcher has starred in films such as Jobs, No Strings Attached, What Happens in Vegas, and Dude, Where's My Car?. But where he really got his break was on TV, on That 70s Show. Ironically this is where he initially met his future wife, Mila Kunis (but let's forget about her for now). Up against Ashton is young Tom Holland, who turned heads when he starred as the one and only Spider-Man in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Which one will you choose?
Tom Holland or Idris Elba?
Tom Holland might be relatively new to the spotlight compared to many others on this list but that doesn't make him any less talented or desirable. He really made a name for himself when he was cast as Marvel's web-slinging superhero in Spider-Man: Homecoming and the related MCU films. He's option one. As for option two, look no further than Idris Elba! Both of those actors, although different in many ways, would make for fantastic company. Which do you choose?
Idris Elba or Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Over his years in the film and TV industry, Idris Elba has tallied a massive 94 acting credits (according to IMDB). Filmwise, these include roles in the MCU, Pacific Rim, and plenty more. As for his small-screen appearances, we really can't go past The Wire! We're confident that he'd make good company, no matter who he's with! In the opposing corner is none other than Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who starred in Inception among plenty of other big-name titles. Who will you choose?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Robert Downey Jr.?
Over his years working in the industry, the Hollywood Heartthrob that is Joseph Gordon-Levitt has featured in over 80 projects! These include the Star Wars franchise, Don Jon, Inception, and Looper, just to name a few. How are we feeling about Joseph Gordon-Levitt? He's up against some pretty tough competition, with the witty Robert Downey Jr. standing in the opposite corner. Even if you love both of these actors, you're gonna have to pick one. Who's it gonna be then?
Robert Downey Jr. or George Clooney?
Robert Downey Jr. is an actor full of quick wit and subtle arrogance, but that's what we've come to love about him over the years. While he has featured in plenty of different film and TV projects, his ongoing role as Tony Stark and Iron Man is what audiences have come to assoiate with him the most. He's up against some tough compteition though, that's for sure -none other than the Silver Fox, George Clooney! Which one will you choose?
George Clooney or Tom Hardy?
George Clooney is all class and all style, and we've come to appreciate him over the years thanks to his countless fantastic performances. He also has an amazing villa in Como, Italy, which is a sweet bonus to go hand in hand with his raw talent and impressive resume. In the other corner stands Tom Hardy, a man and actor who has gained a lot of steam over recent years. Which of these two stars would you prefer? It's time to choose!
Tom Hardy or Henry Cavill?
Tom Hardy grabbed all of our attention with his performance in the recent superhero movie, Venom. Prior to that, he starred in a long list of blockbuster films, including The Dark Knight Rises (where he played the villain, Bane), Mad Max: Fury Road, and Dunkirk, just to name a few. Speaking of heroes and villains, our second choice is no stranger to donning the cape. Henry Cavill, AKA Superman, is a fine choice. Which of these two boys will you choose?
Henry Cavill or Leonardo DiCaprio?
Picture this: you're late to a family event, and your car just won't start. Thankfully, your partner, Henry Cavill, is superman and can just fly you over the traffic to your destination. Sounds pretty decent, doesn't it? With his talent and figure, Cavill is going to be hard to beat, but if anyone can do it, it's Leonardo DiCaprio, the man who got plenty of tears flowing with his performance in Titanic. Which of these two famous faces will you choose?
Leonardo DiCaprio or Will Smith?
It seems that everything Leonardo DiCaprio touches turns to gold, with memorable performances in an endless list of films including Catch Me If You Can, Inception, Titanic and The Wolf of Wall Street. Oh, and how could we forget his Oscar-winning display in The Revenant? Young Leo was a heartthrob, but how do we feel about modern-day Leo? He's up against quality opposition in Will Smith, a formidable actor, and artist. It's time to make a choice between these two.
Will Smith or Matt Damon?
Will Smith "has enjoyed success in television, film, and music. In April 2007, Newsweek called him "the most powerful actor in Hollywood"." (via IMDB). That's a pretty impressive resume if you ask us, which has included starring roles in The Pursuit of Happiness, I Am Legend, and the TV show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Up against Will Smith, we have an actor with an equally impressive CV, and that's none other than Matt Damon, AKA Jason Bourne. Pick one.
Matt Damon or Joaquin Phoenix
From Good Will Hunting to his recurring role as Jason Bourne in the Bourne series, and everything in between, Matt Damon is no stranger to the success and spotlight associated with Hollywood. He also starred in the sci-fi films The Martian, and Interstellar, for which he delivered very good performances. Up against him is an actor that is perhaps a little lesser known, but certainly no less talented, and that's Joaquin Phoenix. Which of these two big names do you prefer?
