Brace yourselves. This isn’t going to be pretty. Indeed, this is the one where we challenge the notion of what is “hot” in Hollywood and, in short, outline why many Hollywood hotties and hunks aren’t as hot as we are told. Before you say it, yes, we agree: we probably don’t look half as good as these men and women do. There, we said it.

Ultimately, however, we are simply tired of being told who is hot (in all senses of the word, not just from a physical standpoint) and who is trendy. In other words, that also means that we are talking about why some celebrities are so popular (i.e. hot) in a way that just makes us think they’re so overrated. Don’t hate us for it - we are just having a little fun here. Take this article with a grain of salt. If anything, take it out on Hollywood.

With that, here are 15 celebrities we are tired of being told how hot they are. Feel free to agree or disagree with us.

15 Emma Stone

14 Jennifer Lawrence

13 Kit Harington

Excuse us, but Kit Harington probably would not have been given the “sex symbol” label were it not for the majorly popular Game of Thrones and all that sword fighting, heroic stuff he does. If it weren’t for that, Harington wouldn’t be nearly as hot. That’s because in real life he is quite an ordinary looking man. We’ve seen him before in the form of Orlando Bloom and we don’t need any more lookalikes.

12 Leonardo DiCaprio

The media is constantly telling us how hot Leonardo DiCaprio is supposed to be - he has even been hailed as one of the sex symbols of our time, a title that naturally emerged once he starred in films like Romeo and Juliet and Titanic, in the 90s. However, this fantasy was largely a media creation.

11 Taylor Swift

10 Kim Kardashian

9 Cameron Diaz

8 Gwyneth Paltrow

7 Jennifer Lopez

6 Chris Pratt

5 Channing Tatum

4 Selena Gomez

3 Johnny Depp

We are challenging Johnny Depp’s place as a Hollywood sex symbol. What is our evidence? His former wife, Amber Heard, has made some very serious allegations against Depp, including physical and verbal abuse (she has since dropped the charges, but that doesn’t mean that Depp isn’t guilty). Even before Heard dropped the charges, many people insisted he was innocent and that Heard was primarily driven by money. However, she has since donated her entire divorce settlement of 7 million to a children’s charity. Amid the possibility that Depp could be a possible domestic abuser, there is no room for him as a sex symbol any longer.

2 Kate Upton

1 Ryan Reynolds

Ryan Reynolds has moved up the Hollywood ranks to one of the most buzzed about celebrities, mainly because he portrayed an antihero in the subpar Deadpool in 2016. Although the film was a huge blockbuster success and broke many records at the box office, the role really elevated him - in fact, some have even said that it might define his career - but the fact remains that Reynolds is a mediocre actor. We attribute his career success to the power of the media (and especially social media) as opposed to raw talent. You could easily replace Reynolds in this role with any other Hollywood “hunk.” Ultimately, Reynolds is kind of like the equivalent of 50 Shades of Grey: hugely popular but kind of terrible. All you need to do is take a look at all of the films he’s done recently for this to be very clear. Has he ever really been in a decent movie that hasn’t been an utter flop? Criminal? Fail. Self-Less? Another fail. Green Lantern? Terrible.
