There’s something about foreigners and the way they look. Perhaps its their exotic nature, or their accents. Sometimes, they just look beautiful. Here are our choices for the sexiest men who don’t call America their birth nation.
1. Alex Pettyfer
Poised to become the new “It” boy of Hollywood, this UK transplant is starring in a slew of upcoming films. In a week or two, he’ll make his debut in “I am Number Four,” which promises lots of action…shirtless, we hope.
Recent photos of him jogging showed a V-cut that was so sexy we don’t think there’s been anything like it since Brad Pitt in “Fight Club.” Seriously, his hotness is so overwhelming, we can’t take it.
2. David Beckham
Nothing will likely top the Beckham and Posh campaign for Emporio Armani in 2009. 2011 has to be much better for Becks, though, after a woman accused him of cheating. As if anyone could do that to Victoria!
Still the idea of Golden Balls actually being human and slipping up stuck with a lot of fans. With a baby on the way, however, were sure ’11 is going to be a big year for the star.
Maybe some Americans will actually go to a soccer match!
Were more interested to find out if Becks shows up in Victoria’s seven-months pregnant photo shoot! She’s already been booked for the June cover and those summers can get steamy…
3. Ryan Reynolds
People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” in 2011 and Sandra Bullock’s potential hook-up buddy is cute, sexy and dapper all wrapped up into one. Look for the Canadian to bulk up even more in the Green Lantern, with our favorite female celeb, Blake Lively.
4. Cory Monteith
Certainly going for the cute factor here, but there’s something about Monteith’s stance that makes us swoon. Perhaps it’s his height or his kid grin and the way he croons on “Glee.”
2011 is only going to get better for this rising star as he continues to appear as Finn on the hit musical TV show. That photo of him with Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling in Vegas for People’s 2010 sexiest men was foxy, so we’re praying for more of that this year.
5. Rafa Nadal
Despite several injuries at the Australian Open, the Spanish-bred Nadal is still the number one tennis player in the world. His biceps are big (but not massive), his chest is fantastic and his focus face is so sexy it’s ridiculous. With the French Open, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open months away, this hottie has plenty of time to clean up his hair and get rid of those stubborn injuries.
6. The True Blood Trio
We could spread these three hot guys over the #8 and #9 positions, but we think it’s a little cheap to take up valuable space. “True Blood” steamed up televisions last summer for the third year in a row and it was hotter than ever.
Whether it was Jason (played by the adorable Aussie Ryan Kwanten) with his washboard abs and tan; Eric (played by the Swedish beauty Alexander Skaarsgard) and his commandeering ways and sexual fluidity; or Bill (British heartthrob Steven Moyer), the underdog of the group but sexy no less…there was plenty of skin and heat going on.
The best moment in the series so far? Definitely Eric and Sookie’s imaginary hook-up that occured during Season 2. Eric and Talbot’s hook up was really hot too, but then he like ripped off his head while they were doing it so…. yeah.
7. Prince Harry
Prince William might be off the market now, but the red-headed royal is still up for grabs. Sure, he may have an on-again, off-again relationship with the blond bombshell Chelsea Davies, but honestly…does anyone believe he can keep it in his pants?
We heard a pretty hot story recently, however, involving Harry, Chelsea and an escape via the trunk of a car. Has anyone reading this seen “Out of Sight”? J.Lo. Clooney. Sex. That’s all we’re saying.
8. Novak Djokovic
It used to be all about Roger vs. Rafa, but 2011 is shaping up quite differently. Coming off his recent victory at the Australian Open, Djokovic is poised to shake up the top three tennis rankings (he’s currently sitting pretty at #3).
But enough about his skills. This tall and roguish Serbian isn’t your typical kind of sexy. With a buzz cut, jet black hair and a square face we can’t quite put our finger out it… but there’s something that makes us just scream “NOVAK” with delight every time we see him.
9. Javier Bardem
He’s married to Penelope Cruz. If she loves him, we love him. Plus his accent is wicked sexy.
10. Christiano Ronaldo
There’s so many horrible things to say about this ManU soccer star, but thanks to his Emporio Armani ad campaign and his updated haircut, we’re giving him the benefit of the doubt.
This Portugal native might not be packing like Beckham, but his washboard abs, metro style and silly kid grin warm out hearts… And loins.
