I recently did a photo post about hot actors when they were younger, “When They Were Young”, and was thinking well there have to be some actors who are young right now that I also have the hots for. It took me a little longer though because I’m not into the who Taylor Lautner/Zac Efron types. I like the oddballs or deeper guys. Yes, I know that 5 of them turn 30 sometime this year but tough cookies.
Shia LeBeouf (06/11/86)
Here’s the thing, I hated him back in the day. I used to be close to one of my nieces. We would always hang out for a week or two every summer. One summer she had me watching Even Stevens. So I thought of him as this annoying little kid when he popped up in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle & Constantine. Then he hosted SNL and I no longer worried that he would ruin the 4th Indy for me. I even own that Rear Window knockoff he’s in. I don’t think that the trailer for Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps looks that hot but he does in his suits, yum.
Emile Hirsch (03/13/85)
I’m a big fan of his flick The Girl Next Door . You may have also seen him in Lords of Dogtown, Alpha Dog or Taking Woodstock.
Patrick Fugit (10/27/82)
I felt like a perv when I first liked him in Almost Famous but it turns out he was already legal, yay! You may have also seen his turns in White Oleander, Spun, Saved!, The Amateurs (hilarious, BTW) or Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant.
Seth Rogen (04/15/82)
I’ve had a thing for him since The 40 Year Old Virgin. He has also appeared in Freaks and Geeks, Superbad, Knocked Up, Pineapple Express, Zack and Miri Make a Porno & Observe and Report. He’s recently dropped some lbs to be the new Green Hornet. Check him out in these SNL sketches The Fast and the Bi-Curious & Like a Boss
Trevor Fehrman (07/14/81)
Yes, Elias in Clerks 2 was weird and kinda creepy but also a little adorable.
Chris Evans (06/13/81)
Evans came to my attention in Not Another Teen Movie as a jock spoof and that’s still my favorite role of his. You may also recognize him from Push or The Fantastic Four. His film The Losers opens in April.
Michael Pitt (04/10/81)
Pitt has had great turns in Hedwig and the Angry Inch , The Dreamers and Last Days.
Ben Foster (10/29/80)
It was very hard to find some good pics of Foster because he is known for his dark, disconcerting roles. As someone who was in high school during Columbine I watched and discovered him in the flick Bang Bang You’re Dead in 2002. You may have also caught him on Six Feet Under or in X-Men: The Last Stand or Pandorum.
Macaulay Culkin (08/26/80)
Blame the Oscars for reminding me of Culkin. He’s only a little older than me & I too watched Home Alone. But it was his turns in Party Monster & Will & Grace that gave me a little crush on him.
Jason Schwartzman (06/26/80)
Schwarztman burst onto the seen in Rushmore and then continued with roles in Slackers, Spun, Shopgirl, Marie Antoinette and The Darjeeling Limited. I knew I was crushing hard when I still wanted him even when he was completely creepy in Slackers. I also own a Phantom Planet CD and find the part where he fingers that chick in The Darjeeling Limited very hot.
Channing Tatum (04/26/80)
I haven’t seen all of his films but I have to say he is totally hot in Step Up (where he met his future wife, aw) and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. He is sweet in interviews I’ve read about him. I will be renting Dear John when it comes out because I have an embarrassing penchant for romcoms. Oh and you know he’s totally ripped.
