Top 10 Coolest People of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Jesus Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4)... read more

Those who despise Jesus Christ, back off! It occurs to me that you know nothing about Jesus. I understand you say that there is only one God, or Jesus is a regular person. But Jesus isn't God - God. He's God's one and only Son, but at the same time, He's one of the three forms of God.

God told the people that He would be sending a Savior. And that's Jesus. He knew from the very beginning that He had to die on the cross. He knew from the very beginning that He would shed His blood for us. As He was being nailed on the cross, He could have just used His powers and broken free, and killed all the people that were watching and laughing at Him. But no. He endured it all the way, and died. Then, three days later, He rose from the dead and went to heaven.

This is too much for God and Jesus to do for all those people who cause sins all over the world. But in the end, it was worth the pain. Jesus died and rose again. God's one and only Son rose from the dead. If you don't believe or want to believe everything I just said, so be it. But let me warn you, Jesus haters out there. You're going to regret it for eternity. Don't believe me? Find out when you die. Mark my words, you'll wish you had thought otherwise about Jesus.

2 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee (November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973) was a Hong Kong and American martial artist, martial arts instructor, actor, director, screenwriter, producer, and philosopher. He was the founder of Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid martial arts philosophy drawing from different combat disciplines that is often... read more

Bruce Lee is cool, as he was worshipped when alive, a living legend. He predicted there would be statues of him after he was gone. He was right.

Bruce Lee did cool things in his life. Amazing things, in fact, as regards martial arts and film. But it's not just what you do.

Just look at him. Look at footage of him just being himself. His body language, the aura, the charisma, the energy surrounding him. He is the coolest dude without question. Where is the footage of Jesus being cool? How do we know if Jesus acted cool or looked it?

Actually, I want people to say Jesus is the coolest though, as it will do my conscience good and bring peace of mind to my mental health. Vote for Jesus. He did good for humanity.

3 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce... read more

Personally, I think the coolest person (excluding Jesus, Chuck Norris, Eminem, and a couple of others) would be Liam Neeson. He's so cool.

Regardless, Eminem is a living legend and an inspiration to many who don't have such nice lives. Eminem is awesome.

Just take a look at an old interview, and you'll see his clothes, the way he talks, what he's talking about, his history, and his I don't care attitude. It's just great, you know what I'm saying?

He has a unique way of rapping, and he is good at really showing off his talent. When he got insulted in 8 Mile, it showed what Eminem was like in rap battles: personal, fresh, and intimidating.

4 Chuck Norris Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris (born March 10, 1940) is an American actor and martial artist. He is a black belt in Tang Soo Do, Brazilian jiu jitsu and judo. After serving in the United States Air Force, Norris won many martial arts championships and later founded his own discipline Chun Kuk Do. Shortly... read more

He was better than Bruce Lee, an actual role model for the martial arts scene. He won so many championships compared to Bruce Lee. I'm not knocking Bruce Lee. He was just more television.

Chuck Norris Review:

A fear of spiders is called arachnophobia. A fear of tight spaces is called claustrophobia. A fear of Chuck Norris is called logic.
Chuck Norris threw a hand grenade and killed 50 people before it even exploded.
Chuck Norris can grab an orange from an apple tree and make the best lemonade you have ever tasted.
Chuck Norris is so powerful that he is immune to Justin Bieber.
When a zombie apocalypse happens, Chuck Norris does not try to survive. The zombies do.
Chuck Norris can cut through a knife with hot butter.
Chuck Norris caught a cold and threw it off so hard it hit Stalin and broke three of his ribs.

5 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson (Michael Joseph Jackson; August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter. He passed away from cardiac arrest caused by a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael... read more

Michael Jackson is a musical god. He should be number two for sure! No one will ever be better than him! I mean, Arnold Schwarzenegger, really?! Michael Jackson is amazing.

Michael created my personality. I show out and have a glimmering personality, and Michael has triggered that. Love that moonwalk. It is such a thriller and is bad. Pun intended.

This man revolutionized music forever. His music videos, like "Thriller" and "I'm Bad," are more like movies.

6 Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

Put the cookie down! Arnie is so cool, and his Come with me if you want to live thing is epic. Wait, I have to take a break. I'll be back.

President, strong, talented, an actor, and probably much more to be seen of Arnold Schwarzenegger. He is an epic human being!

Predator, Terminator, Total Recall. This guy has been in some of the most awesome movies of all time.

7 Dwayne Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

I can't say I'm personally a fan, but with all the action heroes in the top twenty, it's surprising that he's back here.

Dwayne Johnson is a very talented and funny actor.

8 Tom Cruise Thomas Cruise Mapother IV is an American actor and producer. He has received various accolades for his work, including three Golden Globe Awards and three nominations for Academy Awards. He is one of the highest-paid actors in the world.

How the hell is this guy below Sky, or anybody other than Chuck Norris?

9 Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

Other than Jesus, this is about the first one I agree with. The rest are all action stars, most of whom wouldn't have a prayer of doing in reality what they do on the screen. Chuck Norris at number four kind of explains to me why our country is so hateful.

Leader of the band and rock icon. He has stood the test of time and gotten several generations to love his music. A great band and a great singer-songwriter.

Just watch him dance on stage at the age of 160. He was awesome when he was 20, and he's still awesome right now. The same can't be said about Bruce Lee or Jesus.

10 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Donald J. Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968... read more

I think he has the balls to say the truth which others avoid!

A businessman and a president. What isn't cool!

Great guy. I don't know why they elected Biden.

The Contenders
11 Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney (born 18 June 1942) is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock... read more

The greatest songwriter of the 20th century with exceptional talent and charisma. Led the greatest rock band of all time (The Beatles). A wonderful human being who genuinely cares about others.

Honey Boo Boo, Justin Bieber, and Skrillex cooler than Paul McCartney? I beg to differ. I can't believe I had to put Paul on this list, and he wasn't already on. Is this real life?

He's not my favorite person (or artist) on this list, but last summer I saw him on his Freshen Up tour. It's amazing that he still has that much energy and is healthy as a horse.

12 Will Smith Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American actor, comedian, producer, rapper, and songwriter. He is best known for his acting career overall. He has been in many popular movies, These include, but are not limited to, the Men in Black franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness,... read more

Come on, people! It's Will Smith! How isn't the man cool? Have you ever seen Men in Black?

The difference between you and me... I make this look good. Isn't that a quote by him? Well, what about how he is good at dancing, rapping, and acting and has an awesome personality?

I love Will Smith in everything he does. He should definitely be at least in the top five for Men in Black, I Robot, and many other things. So, I would say he's pretty cool.

My favorite person of all time. I own all of his movies except Seven Pounds, and even all six seasons of The Fresh Prince. I have a Hitch poster on my door, so you could say I worship him.

13 Elvis Presley Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Dubbed the "King of Rock and Roll", he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined... read more

A very talented American singer and actor known as the 'King of Rock and Roll.' He was the cultural icon of the 20th century who performed with energy and sexual provocation. Looked like a Greek god, perhaps the best genetics of any human ever.

Elvis was and is the coolest guy who ever lived, full stop. This list with Elvis at 22 just confirms how inaccurate these polls are. Pathetic!

Every woman wanted to be with him. Every man wanted to be him. A fantastic pioneering vocalist and symbol of sex appeal for generations.

14 Jimmy Page James Patrick Page is an English musician, songwriter, and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Defined cool during the Zeppelin era - dark, mysterious, with a dangerous occult aura. Page, by all accounts, should have died during his heavy drug phase but came out the other side intact. A connoisseur of guitars and women. Could still snag almost any woman at 73.

Rock and roll was Jimmy Page! A legend in life... music, rock style living, girls, all of it... iconic!

Come on, guys. Millions of people (me included) would give their lives for a jamming session with the god himself.

15 Vin Diesel Mark Sinclair, better known by his stage name Vin Diesel, is an American actor, producer, director, and screenwriter.

Guardians of the Galaxy, Fast and the Furious, XXX, Riddick. What could be cooler?

He is a pretty cool actor in the Fast and the Furious franchise.

The Fast and the Furious, Triple X, Pitch Black, and Riddick. He's one cool dude.

16 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery,... read more

The only cool one on this list, to be honest. I don't care about the rest, but getting to meet Abraham Lincoln and talk to him about the modern day would be amazing. The other guys are simply boring celebrities. This man banned slavery and was shot dead in a theater!

Abraham Lincoln was by far one of our best presidents!

Ended slavery and helped to reunite America. His face is on Mount Rushmore, and he is frequently cited as the greatest U.S. president in history. An absolute hero.

17 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his... read more

"Come as you are," -Kurt Cobain
Kurt Cobain is the best musician ever. No questions asked. He is the absolute coolest person ever!

I think he should totally be number one! Kurt Cobain put his heart and soul into his music. Plus, he supported gay rights, so that's even better. "I used to be really proud of the fact that I was gay... Even though I wasn't." Come on, how can you not love him?

There will never be anybody as unique as Kurt. There will never be another legacy like Nirvana. Twenty years down the line, and people still listen to Nirvana. Kurt Cobain, all the way!

18 Natalie Portman Natalie Portman is an actress, film producer and film director with dual American and Israeli citizenship. Portman is best known for her roles as Padmé Amidala in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and Nina Sayers in Black Swan. She won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award,... read more

This is so sexist. How come the first girl here is 19th place? She is so awesome. By the way, love you, Natalie!

19 Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix (born November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter.

Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most... read more

The guy played the Star-Spangled Banner with his teeth, then set it on fire, and then smashed it. He played in an overnight jam all the way till morning at Woodstock. He is widely noted as being the greatest musician in the history of the world.

He is noted to be modest, quiet, and humble. He is highly respected by Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Chuck Berry, Jack White, and all the greats. If you disagree with him being a cool guy, go worship your crappy Eminem.

Greatest instrumentalist in rock history. He pioneered the electric guitar as an electric sound source. Players before him had experimented with feedback and distortion, but Hendrix turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary.

He has been copied but never duplicated. Also had phenomenal style. Very cool.

20 Big Daddy Kane Antonio Hardy, better known by his stage name Big Daddy Kane, is a Grammy Award-winning American rapper and actor who started his career in 1986 as a member of the rap collective the Juice Crew.

Much better than regular Kane.

21 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi was born on June 24, 1987. He is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for the American club, Inter Miami CF, in the MLS. Messi is widely regarded as one of the greatest football players of all time. His birthplace is Rosario, Argentina.

Legend. Probably the best player in the most widely played sport on Earth and maybe the best sportsman in history. He is at the level of Wayne Gretzky, Usain Bolt, Michael Jordan, etc. And why cool? Because he always tries to keep a low profile, doesn't make stupid comments, has respect, and is still the young boy who overcame a growth illness.

Though being the best at his thing, he's still absolutely humble and true to the sport, which is rare for the biggest stars in football.

He's not about the drama or the fame. Yet he's a genuine artist with the ball at his feet. His creativity and dribbles are literally unheard of.

22 David Bowie David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie (January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was an English singer born in London, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans... read more

It's sad that he died. He was an amazing musician, very iconic and influential, and loved by many. Even though he's gone, his music will live on.

Ironically enough, a friend and I just watched Labyrinth a few days before he passed away. I was sad when I heard he died and I spent the night listening to David Bowie music. R.I.P. David Bowie. You will be missed.

When he was alive (still not used to using the past tense), I modeled my appearance after him. Everything from his hairstyles and his clothing to the way he stood and spoke. He had this reserved charisma quite unlike that of anybody else.

23 Todd Kowalski
24 Evo Morales
25 James Dean James Byron Dean was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.

Seriously a legend! Not only for his acting prowess but for his personality as a whole. Definitely an interesting character. How many people can be famous over 50 years after they died?

There are only two people who have ever walked this earth who have reached the maximum level of cool: Steve McQueen and James Dean.
