Taylor Swift loves her English boys! She even alluded to it in her new album. But, we didn't need her lyrics to inform us of that. Nor do we need any convincing. The land of tea, royalty, Bond, and Harry Potter is downright infamous for their GQ-esque men. Okay, so not everyone in the country is gorgeous. But this is the place that gave us such hunks as Tom Hiddleston, David Beckham, Idris Elba, Daniel Craig, Tom Hardy, Jude Law, Christian Bale, Henry Cavill, and Orlando Bloom. Yep. It's a long list. And now it's joined by a new generation of hotties that all of us can't stop staring at. All of these dudes were born somewhere in England. Not anywhere else in the United Kingdom. Yep, we're strictly talking about 20 English boys you probably "fancy".
20 Tom Holland Makes More Than Our Spidey-Sense Tingle
Tom Holland may be out of the MCU but he's certainly not out of our hearts. No matter which studio he's playing Spider-Man for, we're still totally down for him to make our Spidey-Senses tingle. This short but fit English dude has also been in films like Heart of the Sea and The Lost City of Z as well as will star in the upcoming Pixar film Onward and Doolittle with his pal, Robert Downey Jr.
19 We're Headed In One Direction... Toward Harry Styles
Taylor Swift isn't the only one who's had a thing for Harry Styles. We're pretty sure anyone with eyes would admit that he's a total piece. Not only can he sing, but he's got the charm and charisma to match. He isn't your normal ex-boy-band wannabe. The dude can actually hold his own with rock-Gods such as Stevie Nicks and Kacey Musgraves. Oh yeah, and we all have totally wondered about that famous trouser snake.
18 Matthew, Whatever You've Done With Neville Longbottom... Thank You!
Everyone under the age of 35 who has access to the internet knows what happened to Neville Longbottom. Obviously, the character (as well as the actor who played him, Matthew Lewis) was not the heartthrob in the famous Harry Potter series. Far from it. But age has been REALLY kind to this English hunk. Just look at those washboard abs. And you gotta admit, he cleans up nicely.
17 He's Not Just Robert Pattinson... He's Batman
Anyone who wasn't team-Jacob was totally crushing on this Twilight star. Of course, dedicated fans of Robert Pattinson were already in love with him from his short stint in the Harry Potter series. After these blockbusters, he made a ton of pretty decent indie films that showed off his acting chops. This helped him land the role as the next Batman, which will open a door to earning a whack-load of new thirsty fans.
16 Kit Harrington Makes Us Know Nothing
Okay, so he's short. Like, REALLY short. But that doesn't mean that he's not a total slice. And Kit Harrington almost definitely is. Of course, to us, he'll always be Game of Thrones' Jon Snow before anything else. But he's going to have quite the movie career. Doesn't hurt that he can actually act. Oh, and then there's those washboard abs. Those tend to land your lucrative movie deals.
15 How To Get Away With Checking Out Alfie Enoch
As a Harry Potter alumnus, Alfie (Alfred) Enoch flew pretty under the radar. Sure, dedicated fans got a little wide-eyed with him when they saw him dating Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, but that wasn't enough to earn him a spot on this list. It was his sweet, lovable, and kind-of hunky role on How To Get Away With Murder that made this English boy hot AF.
14 Zayn Malik Just Makes Us Go Zany
Here you go, One Direction fans. This is another one for you. We couldn't include Nial as he wasn't born in England, but we definitely could show off Zayn Malik. If you looked up "smoldering" in the dictionary, you'd expect to see Zayn's face next to the definition. The dude is just pure fire. And for girls and boys who love a dude who's tatted up, Zayn's your man.
13 We Don't Know If It's Nocturnal, But Aaron Taylor-Johnson Makes Us Some Sort Of Animal
Aaron Taylor-Johnson seldom plays anyone with an English accent. That's because he's just too darn good of an actor. Most famously, he's starred in Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals as one of the most hated villains in history. But he got his start in the hilarious Kick-A** films and rocked films like Godzilla and Avengers: Age Of Ultron. Up next, he'll star in Christopher Nolan's epic Tenet.
12 Everyone On Earth Will Know Jack O'Connell, So We Better Steal Him Now
Skins fans already are crushing on bad-boy Jack O'Connell. As is anyone who's seen Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, Money Monster, or 300: Rise Of An Empire. The dude is ripped and handsome in an edgy kind of way. He has so many movies on his horizon that you better get acquainted with him before the rest of the world starts to realize that this guy is a hunk.
11 Move Over Tom, Here's Ben Hardy... No Relation
Lots of people crush on Tom Hardy, but we like Ben Hardy because he looks like that jerky popular kid in high school who got all the hot girls. Ben, who isn't related to Tom, started in the famous English series East Enders. He then went on to flex his rather-large muscles in X-Men: Apocolypse and Bohemian Rhapsody, where he played Roger Taylor. But who cares about all that, Ben's a snack and we're just drooling...
10 Thank God Jacob Anderson Isn't EXACTLY Like Grey Worm...
Nobody likes where Jacob Anderson's Grey Worm wound up by the end of Game of Thrones. Mind you, nobody liked where anyone ended up and for good reason. But we're sure that Jacob isn't exactly like his GOT character. And yes, we're also referring to the fact that his character was missing a pretty important part... Like a pretty make or break part, if you ask us.
9 Douglas Booth Is London's Zac Efron
Okay, so Douglas Booth doesn't work out to the same degree as Zac Efron. That's because he hasn't earned a living based on having ludicrously defined abs. But make no mistake, Douglas Booth is England's Zac Efron. He's their Troy Bolton. The smoldering, sensitive type who also has a stellar bod. You can watch Douglas in works like Romeo & Juliet, Posh, LOL, Mary Shelley, and The Pillars of the Earth.
8 Bella Thorne Wasn't The Only One Crushin' On Gregg Sulkin
Before she started dating guys like Mod Sun, Bella Thorne had a pretty impressive taste in men... mainly Gregg Sulkin. Fans of Wizards of Waverly Place probably had no clue this dude was from England. But it makes sense, he has that post Londoner look. Although, we don't really care where he's from. All we care about is the fact that he's a total dreamboat.
7 Ginger-Lovers Rejoice! Here's Rupert Grint
You have to have a ginger on the list. After all, they unfairly get the short end of the stick. And that doesn't make any sense when they have people like Michael Fassbender, Calum Worthy, and Rupert Grint in their ranks. Grint was the funny one in Harry Potter. But he eventually grew into a bit of a hunk. At least, packed on far more muscle than Daniel Radcliffe ever did.
6 If Nicholas Hoult Is Good Enough For JLaw, He's Good Enough For Us
Nicholas Hoult was the main hot guy in Skins. That's because English producers knew he had leading-man capabilities State-side. Clearly Jennifer Lawrence thought the same after the two met on the X-Men prequels. They hit it off for a time. Luckily, he returned to the market place so we could ogle him in films like Warm Bodies, A Single Man, and Mad Max: Fury Road without feeling too bad.
5 From Kingsmen To Elton John, Taron Egerton Is A Chameleon... A Hot One...
Taron Egerton is hot AF. He won our hearts in the Kingsmen movies and showed us that he's a stand-out actor thanks to Rocketman. So, he's had a couple of clunkers, namely Robin Hood. But we don't blame him. The dude is a charismatic force to be reckoned with. And then there's that unstoppable chest and jaw-line...
4 It's Not That Strange We Crush On Charlie Heaton
Yeah, Charlie Heaton is from England. He pulls off that State-side accent really well for Netflix's smash-hit Stranger Things, where he plays Jonathan Byers. He's definitely one of the more untraditionally good-looking guys on this list. But he has a look that some people absolutely go crazy for. There's something mysterious about him. After all, we can't all like the ultra-clean cut. His co-star and girlfriend, Natalia Dyer certainly doesn't.
3 John Boyega Takes Us To A Galaxy Far Away
Okay, so John Boyega has some making up to do in the upcoming finale of the Skywalker-saga, Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker. After all, fans weren't too happy with his plot-line in The Last Jedi. But this doesn't stop him from being a total hunk. The dude is a specimen of pure-fitness. There's a reason why Hollywood keeps hiring him.
2 You're About To See A Lot More Of Jeremy Irvine... You're Welcome
Jeremy Irvine has been in A LOT of movies. And most of the time, he places the total hunk. This makes sense given the fact that this Cambridgeshire lad is dashing AF. He's been in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse, Billionaire Boys Club, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, and will star in the upcoming Jason Bourne series, Treadstone. But this is only the beginning, this kid is going to be a big star.
1 Not Every Spider-Man Is From New York: Andrew Garfield
Tom Holland isn't the only Spider-Man who was bred far away from New York City. The Amazing Spider-Man star, Andrew Garfield, was born in Los Angeles but was swiftly whisked away to Surrey, England where he gained his citizenship and built his acting chops. He only returned to the States after a string of cool indie films that prepared him for a role in The Social Network, a Martin Scorsese film, the short-lived Spider-Man gig, and a relationship with Emma Stone that wasn't meant to be. Still, the dude is a total hunk and we definitely fancy him.
