Many of us have had our long-term crushes for ages such as Denzel Washington and Blair Underwood, but we are here to tell you that there are plenty of good and handsome men you can add to your list that you’ve probably been overlooking. Here are some of our picks for good looking fellas you have been missing out on.
CHADWICK BOSEMANOn top of being handsome, one of the reasons we love Chadwick Boseman so much is his uncanny ability to become so believable in any role that he plays. Whether it is the Godfather of Soul James Brown or baseball legend Jackie Robinson, Boseman’s performances always keep us on the edge of our seats! We can’t wait for his next film and we are already counting down the days until he wins his first Academy Award!
BRUNO MARSIf the Super Bowl Halftime Show earlier this year didn’t convince you that Bruno Mars has amazing stage presence and dazzling performance skills, then nothing will. We love this firecracker of a cutie! Mars stays busy with touring but is rumored to be making treks back into the studio for work on a forthcoming album that we can’t wait to hear!
CHIWETEL EJIOFORAlthough he’s been acting for a minute, most of the world learned about this dapper UK-born Nigerian man after his Academy Award nominated performance in 12 Years a Slave. This hunk has been the buzz of Hollywood since his tear-jerking performance in this year’s Best Picture winner.
FRANK OCEANMost of us were initially shocked when Frank Ocean was so upfront about his sexuality (he announced that he’s bisexual), but that in no way kept us from being amazed by his music and by his dreamy good looks. This fascinating artist has topped the charts and has captured our attention for the past few years with his thought-provoking lyrics.
TERRENCE JMany of us have had a crush on Terrence J since he was the co-host of BET’s 106 & Park. This handsome hunk has the gift of gab and is very entertaining to watch, on not only the small screen, but now the big screen, as Jenkins has made his way into the blockbuster franchise that is Think Like a Man. If that’s not enough, he always gives us a reason to stay tuned into E! News for sure!
TJ HOLMESYou would be hard-pressed to find a sexier brother on the news than TJ Holmes! This photogenic journalist always brings a sense of integrity and honesty to his work that we have come to appreciate over the years. While the public slept on his short-lived BET show, “Don’t Sleep!” we can’t sleep on Holmes’ good looks.
JAY ELLISThis South Carolina native has had our tongues wagging since he became the lead of BET’s The Game. This lovable actor just oozes effortless sex appeal with that confident smile. This cutie has come a long way since making his way onto our TV screens with appearances on various reality shows. Keep up the good work, Jay!
MICHAEL FASSBENDERThis Irish-German actor has made our hearts melt recently with his amazing work on the big screen. Michael Fassbender (who has dated quite a few black women, including Sleepy Hollow star Nicole Beharie) has been one of the most highly acclaimed actors of recent years. He is at the top of his game, and is quite dreamy if you haven’t noticed.
J. COLEWhen all of the unrest unfolded in Ferguson, Missouri last summer, one of the first black celebrities on the scene to talk to the community and speak on the injustice of Mike Brown’s death was none other than rapper J. Cole. On top of the fact that he’s adorable, we love him even more for standing up and making his voice heard during such a difficult time. We always love a man who is courageous and handsome to boot!
TIM MCGRAWTim McGraw might be one of the few reasons why we pay attention to country music. This 47-year-old is in tip-top shape these days and has made many of us get turned up and turned on to some of his greatest hits. We all know he got into a bit of trouble earlier this year while on tour when a fan got beside herself trying to rip off his jeans, but in all honesty, we can’t really fault her for trying, can we?
JOHN LEGENDWhen it comes to good looking crooners, we would almost certainly be obliged to include John Legend. This 35-year-old cutie (and newlywed husband to supermodel Chrissy Teigen) has been melting our hearts with his songs for nearly a decade. We love his sensitivity, playfulness and the sincerity that comes across in nearly every note that he plays and every lyric he sings.
