Who Else Wants One of Hollywood’s Most Eligible Bachelors?

So you’ve made your “Top 5 Hollywood Hotties I Want to Date” list several times, consistently foiled by press releases announcing the engagements and/or fatherhood of your favorite leading men. Not to fret – this list will help you reconstruct your now-defunct list in no time. Though, since we’re going for full disclosure here, we should warn that the term “bachelor” is being defined as “not married.” Some of the Adonis’ mentioned are currently tied to other women, but it is Hollywood after all and everyone knows a relationship can’t last in that town. So relax, get your pencil out, and prepare to make your selections.

  1. George Clooney : Consistently ranked on all of Hollywood’s best-looking lists, Clooney is the quintessential Hollywood bachelor, having had few serious relationships in the public eye. The 47-year-old actor has starred in many blockbuster movies, is one of the highest paid film stars in Hollywood, and is pretty easy on the eyes. Married once for just four years, Clooney was recently linked to former Fear Factor star and Las Vegas cocktail waitress Sarah Larson, though the two split in May 2008/
  2. Ryan Phillippe : Ryan Phillippe, the chiseled-abed star of movies like “Cruel Intentions” and “Stop Loss” is back on the market after a seven-year marriage to actress Reese Witherspoon. Though the split was alleged to be because of an extra-marital affair on Phillipe’s part, the two have never formally stated why they broke up. Phillippe is reportedly dating his “Stop Loss” co-star Abbie Cornish, but it doesn’t seem too serious yet. Phillippe lovers – stay tuned.
  3. Ryan Gosling : Oh, what girl didn’t melt on the spot when watching Gosling’s performance in the 2004 movie “The Notebook.” Despite the fact that it was just another role for Gosling, women across the country convinced themselves that the Canadian actor must be that romantic in real life. Currently, gosling is up for grabs. Though he and “Notebook” co-star Rachel McAdams dated for three years, they split in 2007.
  4. Jared Leto: For those old enough to remember the mid-1990s high school drama TV show “My So Called Life,” Jared Leto might be better known as Jordan Catalano, the mysterious, out-of-reach loner who was the object of Claire Danes’ obsession on the show. His perfectly-proportioned face along with an air of inscrutability makes Leto inspire longing in even the most indifferent onlooker – both onscreen and off. Leto has had several high-profile romances – including one with Cameron Diaz – but remains single today.
  5. Wentworth Miller : Anyone who watches “Prison Break” knows that the show’s main attraction is star Wentworth Miller, a 36-year-old, British born actor who has the face of a Greek God. Miller got his start as an extra in two of Mariah Carey’s music videos before being cast by director Brett Ratner in the Fox drama series about a man trying to bust his brother out of prison from the inside. Today, Miller has a notable fan club and the heart of every female viewer of his show, but, strangely, he’s never been spotted out with a date.
  6. Jude Law : Jude Law is a guy that women love to both love and hate. Married once to actress Sadie Frost, the union dissolved after only six years. His subsequent engagement to actress Sienna Miller was also called off after Law admitted to having an affair with his children’s’ nanny. While Law gets a tsk-tsk for his infidelities, it’s impossible to deny his physical beauty, for which he gets a hip-hip and a hooray.
  7. Owen Wilson : Despite his crooked nose, devious grin, and struggles with depression, Owen Wilson is one of Hollywood’s most notable ladies’ men. The lifelong bachelor has had several semi-serious relationships with other actresses, but seems unable to commit. Most recently involved with actress Kate Hudson, funnyman Wilson may be destined to be remain on this list for the foreseeable future.
  8. Vince Vaughn : Like his buddy Wilson, Vince Vaughn is loved by women the world over for his charm, humor, and classic good looks. While he’s often spotted out partying by the paparazzi, just how many women he’s dated is somewhat unclear. In 2005 and 2006, Vaughn had a high-profile relationship with Jennifer Aniston, who had just split from Brad Pitt. For now, though, Vaughn seems to be entirely available.
  9. Adrian Grenier : With his piercing blue eyes, olive skin, and dark curls, Adrian Grenier is one of the more strikingly good-looking men dating in Hollywood today. And in addition to his monetary success, the “Entourage” star is known for having a strong conscious, as well, and is currently involved in many environmental causes. Though he has been linked to Paris Hilton before, Grenier denies dating her. He is currently seeing Australian actress Isabel Lucas.
  10. Leonardo DiCaprio: Leonardo DiCaprio has essentially been considered one of Hollywood’s biggest “heartthrobs” since his 1997 appearance in “The Titanic,” which kicked off a maelstrom of hysteria over the Hollywood native. His classic good looks and piercing gaze made young girls and grown women swoon across the globe after seeing “The Titanic,” perhaps being one of the main reasons the film was so successful. DiCaprio is known for dating models, specifically Gisele Bundchen and now Israeli model Bar Refaeli.
  11. John Mayer: Serial dater John Mayer may always have a girl on his arm, but if history is a teacher they won’t stay there very long. Mayer, the Connecticut-born singer, has dated starlets from Jennifer Love Hewitt to Jessica Simpson to Cameron Diaz. Currently linked to actress Jennifer Aniston, Mayer presumably woos his dates with his sensitive lyrics and melodic songs. A well-known comedian, as well, surely Mayer’s humor doesn’t hurt, either.
  12. Orlando Bloom : British actor Orlando Bloom, it’s been well-noted, is one of the more beautiful men on the planet. And while he keeps a low profile in Hollywood, he’s the object of everyone’s attention on the web. In 2006, Google named him the most searched-for male. Bloom has had one notable Hollywood relationship with actress Kate Bosworth, and has also been linked to Kirsten Dunst and Penelope Cruz, but now dates model Miranda Kerr.
  13. Colin Farrell: Ireland’s most notorious bad-boy, Colin Farrell has a reputation for being a player and a partier. Though he has allegedly been clean since going to rehab in 2005, Farrell once admitted to consuming enough drugs each week to get a small country high. He was married once to actress Amelia Warner for just four months, and in 2003 had a son with model Kim Bordenave. Currently, Farrell is free and completely on the market, with few rumors tying him to anyone.
  14. Kanye West : If you like cocky men, then Kanye West is likely in your list of top 5 Hollywood bachelors. The good-looking rapper is known for his big ego, as well as being able to make successful music on a level unlike many of his peers. Though West was recently engaged to designer Alexis Phifer, the couple split earlier this year when it was rumored that they were having problems. So West, along with all his money, talent, and drive, are back in the game.
  15. Adam Levine : The Maroon 5 frontman has a notorious reputation for being a womanizer with an uncanny knack for attracting a different woman every night of the week. Upfront about his serial dating habits, Levine has been linked to stars like Kirsten Dunst, Natalie Portman, and Jessica Simpson to name a few.
  16. Lance Armstrong: Now that his cycling career has died down and he is turning his focus more toward running his cancer foundation, Lance Armstrong has a lot of time on his hands to woo famous, young women in Hollywood. In his past lurks stars like singer Sheryl Crow, designer Tory Burch, and starlet Ashley Olsen. Currently, Armstrong is linked with Kate Hudson, who recently broke up with Owen Wilson. The jury’s out over whether the relationship will prosper, but frankly Armstrong seems more interested in playing the field.
  17. Jesse Metcalfe : When Eva Longoria’s character on “Desperate Housewives” began an affair with the college-aged gardener, real-live desperate housewives everywhere were introduced to newbie Jesse Metcalfe, a 29-year-old former soap star with a chiseled face and body. In fact, Metcalfe most frequently appeared on the show without a shirt on, which the writers got away with on the feasibility argument — it is hot out in California and he’s a laboring landscaper, after all. Metcalfe’s tag on his MySpace page says single! And he’s currently pursuing a dual career in music.
  18. Billy Crudup : Billy Crudup is no George Clooney, but the gorgeous actor has had much success when it comes to his craft. This Tony-Award winning guy has both a great face and a serious talent. Crudup is most notorious, however, for dumping his baby’s mama, Mary Louise Parker, when she was 7 months pregnant with their son, leaving her for younger actress Claire Danes. That relationship has since ended as well, so Crudup is free to any other lady willing to roll the dice on his fickle nature.
  19. Joaquin Phoenix: Joaquin Phoenix is one of Hollywood’s hottest actors, though he likes to keep his private life private, rarely talking about himself in the press. In fact, he rarely talks to the press at all, and when he does he often earns the ire of many a reporter for being rude and short. But just look at that face! Certainly it’s enough to redeem him from all past transgressions, right? Phoenix once had a three-year romance with Liv Tyler, and has since had several shorter-term relationships with lesser-known women.
  20. Justin Long: Hear me out – Justin Long may be known for being the geeky “Mac Guy” and not for his rock-solid abs, but he’s a cutie that earns instant cred for being Drew Barrymore’s ex-boyfriend. The actress, who dated Long for several months before splitting recently, and her paparazzi power can be credited with getting this adorable guy’s face in front of millions. He won’t stay single for long.
  21. Mario Lopez : Once a washed-up actor from “Saved by the Bell,” Lopez’s career got a kick start when he appeared last year on “Dancing with the Stars.” Now the actor and his ridiculously muscled body are on the pages of every tabloid from here to Kentucky. Newly single, it’s likely that Lopez and his abs won’t be lonely for long.
  22. Chase Crawford: “Gossip Girl” is one of the most talked-about and loved new shows on television, and while that’s mostly due to the saucy plotlines and the show’s guilty-pleasure quality, one of the main attractions is hot, new star Chace Crawford, who plays Nate Archibald on the show. His good looks have made him one of the most popular stars in Hollywood today. While he was known to date singer Carrie Underwood for a time, the actor is now single and available.
  23. Justin Timberlake : When he said he was bringing sexy back, he wasn’t kidding. Justin Timberlake, who has been the boyfriend of Britney Spears, Alyssa Milano, and Cameron Diaz, and is now dating actress Jessica Biel, could fairly be called the most talented and physically gorgeous men in Los Angeles today. It seems there’s nothing he can’t do. This and his well worked-out physique make him a top rater on any respectable girl’s bachelor list.
  24. Matthew McConaughey : OK, so McConaughey just recently had a baby with his model girlfriend Camila Alves. But the couple is not engaged, as of yet, so ladies, don’t cross this one off your list! McConaughey, who has become something of a parody for showing off his beach bod at any given opportunity, is undeniably beautiful, though maybe a little strange. With such a free spirit, it’s hard to imagine him tied-down forever.
  25. Bruce Willis : Despite the fact that Willis is over the age of 50, he’s still got it going on. Though married to Demi Moore for 13 years and then subsequently engaged to actress Brooke Burns, this “Die Hard” star has the confidence and presence to bowl over the ladies. Wrinkles aside, Willis is one of Hollywood’s sexiest bachelors.
