Brown eyes are nice and green eyes are lovely, but blue eyes are something else altogether. They are less common, more desirable, and when paired with a talented actor or actress, they are just everything we could ask for. It just seems that blue eyes add so much mystique and allure to a person. And when it comes to Hollywood and celebrities, you can bet that there is some nice eye candy out there, starring…well, blue eyes! Take a look at our list of the 20 sexiest blue-eyed celebrities. We included both men and women so that there is something for everyone.
Whether blue eyes are paired with blonde hair, red hair, or dark brown hair, they look so striking. Add a chiseled male bod or a curvaceous female beauty, and you have got a recipe for gorgeousness. We hope you enjoy this ranking, because the celebs on this list are not just pretty to look at; we admire them for their acting work. And some of them even do other stuff, too. Singing, producing, directing, modeling, song-writing…these are some seriously capable people. And just on a side note: we still love our celebs who have green and brown eyes. There are no hard feelings here and everyone will have their day!
20. Emma Stone
It seems that everywhere we look, there is Emma Stone. And we are totally okay with that! The 27-year-old actress made headlines in Easy A, Birdman, and The Secret Life of Bees, just to name a few. She really shows no sign of stopping. This talented woman is not even going to let some relationship rumors get her down. She’s strong and mighty and a redhead and blue-eyed and that is so perfect! The media is saying that she and Ryan Gosling so want to be something but so can’t on account of Gosling’s commitment to Eva Mendes (even though they’re not married.)
19. Ian Somerhalder
Ian Somerhalder is most known for playing Boone Carlyle in Lost and more recently, his sexy role on the hit television series The Vampire Diaries. He recently got married to Nikki Reed and that may be a good thing, because his show is faltering in the ratings game. The Vampire Diaries started off with a bang, but now it seems that vampires and werewolves have had their day and people are moving on. Will the show be cancelled? We can’t have that! We must look into Ian Somerhalder’s deep blue eyes and just forget about the world and our worries! We’re begging you!
18. Megan Fox
We recently found out that Megan Fox is bisexual, and that means more love for all of us. The 29-year-old actress and model is most known for playing the mean girl or the sexy sidekick with minimal intelligence. But in real life, Fox is a devoted wife and mother and while she may be small, her career sure isn’t! Fox recently spoke out about her role as a celebrity and a mom. We can imagine that it’s pretty difficult! We applaud her for speaking out and being open and honest. After all, that is hard to come by in Tinsel Town!
17. Henry Cavill
In true British fashion, Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill (…yeah, really) is a six-foot, one-inch power player. This actor already has a regal appearance to him naturally. Add in that fact that he played the lead in The Count of Monte Cristo, and we are hooked! Of course, that was back in 2002. In recent news, you can catch Henry in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; Justice League, Part One; The Great Wall; and Stratton: First into Action. That is a lot of time to soak in some blue-eyed Henry. And we aren’t the only ones! 19-year-old Tara King is said to be dating the 32-year-old actor!
16. Alexis Bledel
Can you believe that Alexis Bledel is 34 years old already? Little Rory has grown up! We are still watching reruns of The Gilmore Girls, and we are not afraid to say it. Alexis is one fine woman: petite, pale, and icy-blue eyes that just take you to another world. Plus, she is super low-key and hasn’t let fame and stardom go to her head. And on top of that, she is totally talented and a mom-to-be! Yes, the actress is pregnant, and she and her hubby (Vincent Kartheise) couldn’t be more thrilled. Oh, we can’t wait to see what that child is going to look like!
15. Michael Ealy
Who is Michael Ealy? One glance at his spectacular-looking face and you will be hooked if you aren’t already! This 42-year-old actor has appeared in Barbershop, 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Perfect Guy, About Last Night, and several others. Apparently he gets really into his acting gigs, but in real life, he is a totally chill dude. Basically, he is a big teddy bear! Michael has a young son, and Michael has no problem playing daddy. Aw, how cute is that? We love a guy who can take charge and isn’t afraid to be a nurturing soul. Now that is talent!
14. Jake Gyllenhaal
Do you remember Jake Gyllenhaal in The Day After Tomorrow? Did you imagine then that he would be one of the hottest and most talented actors in Hollywood now? Well, he is! There was Brokeback Mountain and Donnie Darko, and October Sky. And now he just appeared in Southpaw, which is set to stand a pretty good chance at an Oscar. Taking deep roles and playing unforgettable characters seems to be the 34-year-old actor’s trademark. This guy is totally unafraid to take risks and just go for it! And the public is eating it up! We’re sure those sparkly blue eyes of his aren’t hurting either…
13. Taylor Swift
What hasn’t this 25-year-old done? She grew up in Pennsylvania, moved to Nashville, and now pretty much rules the world. Really. The singer-songwriter has even delved into acting! With her sky-high legs, signature blond tresses, and those piercing blue eyes, she is a force to be reckoned with both on and off the stage. And you can bet that some more Grammy Awards are in her future; she is leading the nominations in album, record, and song of the year. Overall, she has seven nods this year. When Taylor is not rocking a sold-out arena or writing about her most recent breakup, she is playing with her cats.
12. Jared Leto
At 43-years-old, Jared Leto is showing no signs of stopping. This actor/singer/songwriter/director is always on the go. You probably have heard him on the radio singing in 30 Seconds to Mars. Or maybe you have watched him in Panic Room or Lonely Hearts. In 2016, he is set to appear in Suicide Squad. So needless to say, there is a lot of Jared Leto to go around. He received some flak recently for dissing Taylor Swift, another blue-eyed beauty. Watch it, Jared. T-Swift has people in high places! That being said, Jared is a bit weird; kind of like a vegan, agenda-pumping hippie.
11. Zac Efron
Oh, remember when Zac Efron was playing Troy Bolton in the High School Musical movies? We are thrilled beyond thrilled to see that he has graduated from Disney and not turned into a hot mess. He just got hot; or hotter, actually. Zac has gone on to live a stellar life and acting career, starring in films such as Hairspray, Charlie St. Cloud, and The Lucky One. We can’t wait to see him in Dirty Grandpa, Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. That should hold us over for a bit! Not gonna lie: we would still fall in love with Troy Bolton.
10. Brittany Snow
This petite actress and singer is a fresh of breath air, just like snow! Please excuse the pun, but we couldn’t help ourselves. Brittany Snow is so naturally gorgeous that we just have to stop and stare for a moment. And it isn’t just her blue eyes (although those are striking.) She first emerged on the scene through her role on Guiding Light. More recently, you have probably seen her in Pitch Perfect, which is the perfect movie for her. Acting and singing? And her stunning good looks? This is a win-win-win! Yes, Brittany is most definitely a triple threat.
9. Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Jonathan Rhys Meyers has an intense name and an intense gaze. We just get lost in those eyes of his! This Irish stud appeared it Bend it Like Beckham, Mission Impossible III, and Velvet Goldmine, among others. While he had a tragic past (alcohol abuse,) he has since turned things around and as of late, he is looking better than ever. And may we just say, we much prefer his pale blue eyes looking clear and sober! He is our Irish prince; just take a look at him in the hit show The Tudors. But alas, ladies; he is taken. His fiancée is Mara Lane.
8. Alexandra Daddario
Those blue eyes, that wide smile, and those stunning good looks belong to none other than Alexandra Daddario. If you don’t know about her, then you better read up and do a Google Image search! This 29-year-old actress and model was the epic female character Annabeth Chase in the Percy Jackson films. She also appeared in San Andreas, Hall Pass, and other films. The leggy actress is a sparkling beauty, and spoiler alert: she bared a little something extra in the hit television series True Detective. While she is widely known and admired for her blue eyes, there is plenty more to love. She is talented, independent, and not afraid to speak her mind. She actually comes from a family of politicians!
7. Chris Pine
If you are a Star Trek fan, then you know about Chris Pine. The 35-year-old heartthrob played Captain Kirk on the reboot of Star Trek and he is currently filming for the upcoming film, The Finest Hours. Chris is most comfortable playing the hero, the hunky leading male with the dazzling smile and the sparkly blue eyes. After all, we have watched him shine on the big screen in films like Horrible Bosses 2 and Into the Woods. After dodging negative press such as his fight with actress Idris Elba and speculations that he was cheating on his girlfriend, Chris continues to excite moviegoers who just can’t get enough of old blue eyes for the next generation.
6. Zooey Deschanel
Can you believe that Zooey Deschanel is already 35 years old? We couldn’t believe it either. After all, she is so young and carefree at heart. Well, she is maturing beautifully we might add. Her blue eyes really pop, especially with her dark hair. It’s just one more reason to totally admire this independent, strong, humorous woman. First of all, she makes being a nerd totally awesome. Plus, she is kind of a queen of all trades: she acts, models, sings, writes songs, and produces. So…is there anything she can’t do? We highly doubt it! She is one of our favorite blue-eyed beauties.
5. Chris Hemsworth
Men with blue eyes are hot, too. Just take a look at Chris Hemsworth and try not to drool too much. The hot Aussie actor recently divulged some shocking news: he spent time in jail! But relax; he was simply spending some time behind bars in preparation for his newest film role on Blackhat. Can you imagine Chris Hemsworth hanging out in prison? How bizarre! Then again, we are talking about the guy who plays Thor in The Avengers movies. He’s totally got this! Or hopefully he did! Either way, he is out of there now, and we are all waiting to see if it paid off in his performance in Blackhat!
4. Lyndsy Fonseca
Lyndsy Fonseca repeatedly makes the lists and rankings for the most attractive blue-eyed celebrities, so it really is no wonder that she is on this list, too. The 28-year-old actress shot to fame after appearing on The Young and the Restless and How I Met Your Mother. She’s short and sweet, but also sexy and seductive. She is currently working in the role of Angie Martinelli on Marvel’s Agent Carter. Naturally, Fonseca has nabbed spots on the Maxim Hot 100 lists for both 2010 and 2011. With her full lips, wavy golden-brown hair, and those eyes that just seep into our soul…you can bet she is one of the hottest young actresses out there right now.
3. Brooklyn Decker
Brooklyn Decker has way more going for her than just her blue eyes, although they are certainly a wonderful asset and accompaniment to the rest of her! Decker is most known for being a high-fashion model and for gracing the pages of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue. In 2010, she made it to the cover spot. The 28-year-old seemingly has it all: a rocking-hot body, those watery blue eyes, a cheeky smile, long legs, and Andy Roddick for a hubby. Her other accomplishments include posing for FHM, Cosmopolitan, Teen Vogue, Glamour, and The Gap. She was even in a music video for 3 Doors Down!
2. Elisha Cuthbert
Hailing from Canada, Elisha Cuthbert is a young model and actress who began working when she was just a child. She may be small (she is 5-foot, 3-inches tall,) but her popping blue eyes are quite alluring. You can see them on a regular basis by tuning in to the Fox drama 24, on which she plays Kim Bauer. Those blue eyes are just part of her sexy ensemble (gorgeous face, luscious blonde locks, and seductive pouty lips.) Her good looks have earned her a spot on the Hottest Women list for FHM and Maxim. If you’re looking for a blue-eyed, blonde-haired beauty, she is it!
1. Sienna Miller
Those gorgeous blue eyes of Sienna Miller’s recently had an on-set injury. While filming Cabaret, Miller’s left peeper took a blow, and the wound was clearly visible between her upper eyelid and her eyebrow. Looks painful! At least this is one actress who is willing to take a hit for the team (of Cabaret, that is.) Miller is a real trooper, and even braved the streets of New York City sans sunglasses, showing off her natural beauty without trying to cover up her injury with shades or makeup. The boo-boo even required some stitches and was the result of Miller running into something while on the set of Cabaret.
