15 of the Hottest Guys Named Chris in Hollywood

Chris Pine

Is it just us or are we living in a strange moment in time when every other hot dude in Hollywood is named Chris? There was that cute moment at the 2015 Golden Globes where Tina Fey breathed "Chris Pine!" into the microphone, but honestly, she may as well have just stopped at "Chris!" Come on, go on and admit that we're right.

Not even counting in the Christophers, Christians, and Krises, there are so many hot male celebrities with the name Chris it is almost baffling. While the name certainly isn't new to Hollywood, the explosion of sexy Chrises really seemed to happen when Marvel began recruiting superheroes for their various Avengers franchises. 

Suddenly Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, and Chris Pratt were all vying for our attention in Spandex suits, with Chris Pine making his debut as Captain Tiberius Kirk shortly after. And if we dig into it a little further, the bounty of heartthrobs named Chris certainly doesn't end there.

To prove our point, we decided to search every corner of the entertainment biz to celebrate all kinds of talented, sexy Chrises. From comedians to cute crooners, there is a hot Hollywood Chris that will fit anyone's personal preference. 

Now the only question left: Which Chris is the hottest? Take a look through these 17 beautiful options to decide -- there really isn't one we wouldn't consider smooching

    Who knew that hiding under the average chunky Chris Pratt was the smoking hot Chris Pratt? All Pratt had to do was shed a few pounds and suddenly he became the lead contender for several major franchises. Oh, and be named Chris.

  • Chris Hemsworth


    Chris Hemworth, famous for playing Thor in a bunch of Marvel movies, has a couple of hot brothers named Liam and Luke. But Chris had the obvious advantage of his name.

  • Chris Evans

    Chris Evans, who has basically made a career playing superheros, probably would not have landed roles in The Avengers, Fantastic Four, and Captain America if he'd been named Bob. Just sayin'.

  • Chris Martin

    The Veronica Mars and Private Practice actor -- and photographer -- has also appeared in The Help and Up in the Air. Those baby blues earn him a spot on the list of Hollywood's hottest actors, but the name clinches it.

  • Chris O'Donnell



    It was way back in 1994 that Chris O'Donnell was relegated to playing Robin opposite George Clooney's Batman. Of course, we now know the roles should have been reversed.

  • Chris Isaak



    Soulful crooner and actor Chris Isaak never would have gotten Helena Christensen to drape herself all over him if his name hadn't been Chris.

  • Chris Tucker


    Upon leaving comedian Chris Tucker out of this list, several ladies in the office yelled at me that he was "so cute!" and I had to include him. I think the name really got to them.

  • Chris O'Dowd
