If you're a fan of Hollywood movies, then you're probably well-versed with the actors and actresses that reigned in the past, and the ones that are considered to be the best today. In this article, we're going to focus on such a list. Jotting down a list of top 10 male actors is nearly impossible, because there are so many actors, who have been here for quite some time, and the more contemporary ones, are really good too. Yet, we have tried to include almost all the famous actors, that have been known for their exemplary acting skills.

As said above, compiling a single list of top male actors is going to be an arduous task. Some may agree with the list, while some may not. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so while you think that someone may be one of the hottest male actors, others may think that the greatest actors of all time are not only the ones that look exceptionally pretty!
