The Top Ten

1 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

He's the greatest Original and even now, he's the image that makes all others lame. For once, the fan clubs spiel is justified : Elvis is king! He had its own style, clothes, language and sex ( all the things that are now taken for granted ). His singing was a mixture of edgy, nervous, raw and unreachable romantic charm but above all, it was the sexiest thing that anyone had ever heard. When those hips got moving, there was no more pretence about moonlight and hand-holding, it was hard physical fact. In concerts girls have screamed, rioted, bawled and fainted. After the fifties he became more mellow. In 1968 he made a comeback to show the world that he was still the sex symbol. After that, routine, a divorce, weightproblems and drugtaking slowly killed him ( a real tragedy and loss for the world ). But no one will be able to accomplish what this gifted talented singer had done. Elvis forever!

Greatest and most diverse voice EVER and the sexiest guy to ever walk the earth!... Viva Elvis!

Why do you think he called "The King"? (He's the best musician of all time, I didn't forget that! )

Sexy man, he deserves this 1st place, he really does. He worked so hard to show his unique talent, and when he finally got there for real, he died a terrible death. We have to send him all our love because he really broke the music though.

4 Alain Delon Alain Delon Alain Fabien Maurice Marcel Delon is a French actor and businessman, with French-Swiss dual citizenship since 1999. Delon became one of Europe's most prominent actors and screen sex symbols in the 1960s.

5 Antonio Banderas Antonio Banderas José Antonio Domínguez Bandera, known professionally as Antonio Banderas, is a Spanish actor, director, singer, and producer.
6 Patrick Swayze Patrick Swayze

I don't understand why he's number 38 behind several of the women in one direction, this is the greatest 'male' sex symbols right?!

Always so cool and calm with a smile

7 Jeremy Clarkson Jeremy Clarkson Jeremy Charles Robert Clarkson is an English broadcaster, journalist and writer who specialises in motoring.

Some say he's grumpy, old fashioned and right wing. And that he once punched Piers Morgan in the face. All we know is he's called Jeremy Clarkson.

I'm a groupie, and yes to confirm rumors that have been circulating, shagging Jeremy is like a turbo charged Nissan skyline.

Yes he's opinionated, yes he's friends with the Tory bastard David Cameron but his enthusiasm about cars and hammers makes him sexier than the likes of Josh Hutcherson.

Who needs all these teen stars when you can have Jeremy Clarkson?

15 Robert Plant Robert Plant Robert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

I'm watching him right now "Live from Madison Square Garden" in 1973 and he is singing "Since I've Been Loving You", and I cannot take my eyes off of him. Oh yeah, those jeans. But also his hair, and he's sexy as hell. I'm in my 50's and I have a picture of him on my refrigerator door!

He was like a god. A perfect, lean body. And oh god his hair. Long hair is a turn on already, but curly golden locks? Divine. And the way he pranced and danced. I can't get over it. There's no way to describe him other than as perfection.

The guy looked like a Viking god with golden locks and blue eyes, shacked that tall, slim, smooth-skinned, half-naked body of his all over the stage and sang like no man on earth had ever done before. He could have made you think of half the deadly sins in the Book with just a whisper or a moan of his voice... (Ok, I need a cold shower)
And he still bewilders the poor (-minded) fans with his intricate lyrics.

It's all about the attitude, and the spirit within; in addition to the incredible, unique voice, of course.

Marlon Brando is the best actor of all time and at the same time sexy as a hell. BRANDO is a true SEX SYMBOL! Actually he's beautiful face and body reflected a beautiful soul.

He should be way up top. I wasn't even born before his death but his scenes in Streetcar named desire make my knees go all weak. Not only does he have a better face than Stalone and Brad Pitt but also has more sex appeal. He's the classic example of the perfect alpha male.

It's his bleeding, vesperal, voice. And the deep dark eyes, such poise.

Probably simultaneously the most beautiful and the most masculine put together. Just a physically perfect man.
