The Noughties were a good time for T.V. and music. But if you were the sort of teenager who dreamed of a hot, famous man whisking you off your feet, they were an even better time. Whether you liked teen heartthrobs or dashing older actors, handsome dudes were on every screen and every wall. These 20 guys were especially beloved…
20. Orlando Bloom
The Lord of the Rings trilogy was very, very good, but there were many teenage girls who would have loved it anyway. This was purely because of the presence of Legolas, Orlando Bloom’s devastatingly attractive elfin warrior. Bloom was everywhere for a while, and in 2006 was named one of the Sexiest Men Alive by People magazine. However, as the decade drew to a close, the actor gradually fell off the radar. His last big role was in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017.
19. Seann William Scott
Seann William Scott was the loveable stoner, with loveable good looks, for most of his career. Unfortunately, it was this sort of typecasting that caused his career to slow as soon as he got noticeably older. Though he’s stuck with the American Pie franchise for years, he hasn’t had a hit in a while. Hopefully his new role in Fox’s Lethal Weapon will help get him back to the limelight.
