You may know Idris Elba for his work on The Wire. Or maybe you’re a fan of his musical side as DJ Driis. Did you catch him in Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom? Of course. He was great in that, and totally deserving of his Golden Globe nomination. But what about that Oscar snub? While these are all valid conversations to be had about the talented English actor, his extreme handsomeness should not be overlooked. And now that he has become a father for the second time, he’s headed to the top of our list of DILFs. That’s Dad I’d Like To F–k. Happy Friday!
There are some things that British men do best: making a pot of tea, playing dastardly villains and wearing the bejesus out of a tailored suit. I mean, “Hot damn, British men!” In honor of how gosh darn good these guys look all cleaned up, we’re ranking the best British men in suits.
Beards are officially back in style! It used to be that only a freshly shaven man could catch our eye, but these days facial hair is officially on trend.

Some celebrity couples are just…silly. We’re not naming any names, but we feel like if we had control over who was dating, the love lives of the stars would be so much hotter! For example — why haven’t Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, friends with crazy chemistry, ever gotten together (forget the fact that he only dates women a generation younger than him)? Or what about Kate and Leo (ditto)? And in our humble matchmaking opinion, Europe’s naughtiest prince and a certain Bahamian pop star/wild child would make Westminster Abbey implode. Worth imagining for Queen Elizabeth’s reaction, alone (“What’s a Rihanna? Guards, remove this tart in tats and a crop top!”).
Has Scott Disick suffered another tragedy? Which Pretty Little Liars starlet is opening up about an eating disorder? Did director Edgar Wright reveal which Ant-Man is appearing in his big Marvel film adaptation?
Yesterday, we made the audacious claim that 2013 rocked because there were so many sexy ladies to lust after. Today, we might be eating our words. See, as much 2013 was the year of the gorgeous lady, it was also the year of the handsome hunk. Famous dudes swaggered onto the big (and small) screen and into our hearts. The 13 hot famous guys on this list kept 2013 hot and exciting–and have left us wanting more in 2014.
Which TV star appeared in a video for a fan proposing to his girlfriend? Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt could soon be sharing the big screen again, and we look back at one of the first times we met Ron Burgundy.
Are reading this from a brand-new device you got for next to nothing after standing in line overnight for the big Black Friday sales? Or, are you lazy like us and waiting for Cyber Monday? VH1 News was curious about the holiday shopping habits of the rich and famous, and asked them what they’d wait in line for, with some interesting results. Girls‘ Zosia Mamet would do it for a unicorn (of course!). But our favorite answer came from Idris Elba.
