Australia may be called The Land Down Under; but it’s also home to some gorgeous men we’d like to get down with.
Most of them have made their way to Hollywood, where they have been welcomed by the film industry, acclaimed by audiences, and drooled over by fans. Others have preferred to remain hot on home ground, but are no less easy on the eye for it. Proceed with caution, because our top 10 hottest Australian actors are scorchers!
Counting Down the Hotties
1. Liam Hemsworth
Peta’s sexiest vegetarian celebrity of 2016 and Hunger Games star, Liam Hemsworth looks like the not-so-innocent boy-next-door. Apart from his Gale Hawthorn role in The Hunger Games, this Hemsworth brother is also famous for being Miley Cyrus’ fiancé and her now-husband.
2. Chris Hemsworth
When we saw Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the Avengers and in the solo movies, all we could say was, wow! His blond locks, smouldering eyes and chiselled features are worthy of portraying an ancient thunder god, but as other movies such as Rush have proved, Chris has not been typecast. We cannot wait to see more of him. His acting skills, we mean.
3. Heath Ledger
A great actor gone too soon, Heath Ledger was never cast because of looks alone. He certainly had them, but his talent was the real reason we could not take our eyes off him. His movies are worth watching time and time again, especially Brokeback Mountain and Monster’s Ball. The performance that outdid them all, however, was the Dark Knight, in which Heath gave the greatest performance of his life.
4. Alex O’Loughlin
An Aussie actor known for being one about whom not much is known because he keeps his work and his private life separate, Alex O’Loughlin makes us weak at the knees. He has appeared in the Hawaii Five-O remake, as well as in Moonlight, and he acted with Jennifer Lopez in the Back-Up Plan.
5. Jesse Spencer
An actor and a musician, Jesse Spencer is a hottie of many talents. He was a regular face on Australian soap opera Neighbours from 1994 until 2000, and again in 2005. He also acted in US medical drama series House from 2004 until 2012, and in Chicago Fire from 2012. Not just a pretty face and a good actor, Jesse sang with the Australian Boys Choir from 1986 until 1992, and is a violinist in a band that also features Hugh Laurie, who starred alongside him in House.
6. Sam Worthington
Known in his native Australia before going to Hollywood and getting mixed-up in that Terminator: Salvation debacle, Sam Worthington had the good sense to say yes when his agent told him about Avatar. He nabbed the lead role, and was catapulted into stardom. We’re so glad he was, because it means we get to go gaga over him in more movies, such as Clash of the Titans.
7. Ryan Kwanten
Ryan Kwanten played the dumb-but-delicious Jason Stackhouse in True Blood, the HBO series that became a staple of vampire-lovers. As nice as he was to look at in that mod-goth fantasy-romp, Ryan proved there is more to him than playing an airhead with the films Red Hill and Griff the Invisible.
8. Hugh Jackman
Now a Hollywood veteran, Hugh Jackman is a proud, singin’ and dancin’ Aussie who will be remembered forever as the X-Men’s Wolverine. The actor has even taken his talents to Broadway, where he appeared on stage in the Boy From Oz; a role that won him a coveted Tony Award. Hugh also has hosted the Tony Awards, as well as the Oscars.
9. Simon Baker
We saw hot Australian actor Simon Baker in the Mentalist, and we saw him in the Devil Wears Prada, and we have made up our minds. We would like him for Christmas, dipped in chocolate, please.
10. Dan Ewing
Daniel ‘Dan’ Ewing has acted in long-running Australian soap opera Home and Away, Spirited, Blue Water High, Rescue: Special Ops, Red Billabong, Beast No More, and (don’t laugh) Power Rangers RPM. Nothing we have seen Dan in has made us think, well, that’s the next big award-winner, right there. Then again, we don’t watch Dan for his acting…
