In celebration of St. Patrick's Day, coming up on March 17, here is a look at the top five hottest male celebrates who come from the Emerald Isle. Raise your glass and toast these charismatic men who always seem to make us smile!
Until the day were heard Colin Farrell speak in his native Irish brogue, we didn't realize what all the fuss was about, but there was something about his sexy accent that quickly changed our minds. The combination of devilish charm and bad boy persona blended with that incredibly amazing body, seems to make women across the planet weak in the knees.
Liam Neeson was actually born in Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, but he's Irish all the same. He was cast in 1981's "Excalibur," with much of the film shot in the spectacular Wicklow Mountains. The 59-year-old was said to be quite the ladies man until he settled down with actress Natasha Richardson and married her in 1994. Sadly, she was killed in a skiing accident in 2009. We hope the handsome gentleman will find true love again.
Jonathan Rhys Meyers was born in Dublin and raised in Cork, Ireland. The 34-year-old had quite the tumultuous childhood and it may have resulted in a somewhat troubled personal life in his adult years. He's been in and out of rehab, though he is incredibly talented onscreen and perhaps too handsome, if there is such a thing.
We loved the blue-eyed actor in "August Rush," and he's said to be amazing in his most recent film, 2012's "Albert Nobbs," set in 19th century Ireland.
While Robert Sheehan may not be a household name, we're convinced he will be someday soon. The striking 23-year-old is an incredibly charismatic Irishman who played Nathan Young for two seasons on the British television series, "Misfits." He's got the typical wonder sense of humor they seems to be inherent in the Irish, along with the most amazing green eyes we've ever seen.
