  • Elizabeth Lerman

    LOGAN LERMAN?!?!? >:(

  • Kelly

    Robert Pattinson – Really? He did not make any specific contribution to film this year! If it is because of the thing he is dating, someone should tell her to take singing lessons and look into plastic surgery! Major step down in the girl department! (What is with the ring in the nose? Does she need a leash? I am biracial so stop the hating!)

  • Roberta

    Matt Bomer <3

  • elisa

    yeii charlie in the top ten , this was a great year for him !! i was surprise to see gerad butler and zack efron in the top 5 i think they shouldn’t be there

  • Victoria Elizabeth

    The only man I look up here in JJ is Alexander Skarsgard. That’s it. :)

  • Davina

    Leo <3
    My all time favorite, 4ever.

  • Nicole

    Gerard Butler <3 <3 <3

  • Sandiii


  • Lee

    OT – I was even more shocked when I saw Jordin Sparks with a nose ring!

  • spinclass312

    These top/most popular are those that appeal to the lowest com denom. So I’m glad my favourites aren’t up there. But I do like Leo; good actor.

  • spinclass312

    He looks very plastic for some reason. He was good in that film with Amanda Seyfreid and Justin Timberlake.

  • sienna sienna

    Robert Pattinson <3

  • sienna sienna

    Lmao so pressed what contribution did kscrew make that she is on the list!!

  • Living in a box

    Jamie Dornan doesn’t have any film or haven’t appeared in Once Upon A Time but he in Top 10.

  • Angelwings

    Charlie Hunnam!

  • lucy

    Brad and Angie, both number One, no brainer.

  • Chantel Meavers

    My favourite actor for 2014 is Sam Heughan

  • Constance

    Good to see Bradders (Coop), Gere Bear, Weo, and Jakey.
    Yep, you’re stuck with those cute names forever.

  • Constance

    I love how they stick together, it’s adorable.

  • Lala

    YEAH!!! Me too! I’m here just for news and pics about Alexander Skarsgard.

  • tia maria

    How is brad pitt no1? Aside from that, quite a lot of my favourite actors made the list including Chris & liam hemsworth, Jamie dornan,Theo james,matt bomer and Robert pattinson amongst a few others.

  • littlemiss76

    Jamie is the main cast in 2 series of The Fall. He has 50 soon, did a project with Bradley Cooper just finished 9 lives of Louis Drax were be played the lead. Got a new film in the wings starting next March. Oh he also has a foreign film coming to DVD in the US in January. I think he has done pretty well for himself since that Once Upon a Time gig.

  • littlemiss76

    Jamie Dornan.

  • Shivani Yadav

    I’m happy with these rankings! :D

  • apsara

    Rob Pattinson always

  • kyla

    Yasss Robert Pattinson. #7 Charlie Hunnan #9 Theo James #19

  • Dana Danik Z

    Charlie Hunnam

  • mouth

    Gerard Butler is on the list due to literally 12 hyper obsessed phannies. It’s not popularity but post count. Go check the insanity on his threads.

  • Tyler

    Or they could just all be Gerard Butler and his psycho PR. You should read Daily Mail.

  • Jo

    Brad and Angelina still no 1,I like it:)

  • lol

    What about Hugh Jackman? Chris Pratt? both Matthews>Damon and Mcconaughey? Bradley should not be on this list. He is a celebrity because he pays the media. Everyone else better actor. They just don’t kiss up the way manipulator Bradley does.

  • Human

    Brangelina No.1!!! Who else could it be?!


  • my dude leo

    Leo is more popular than brad in real life. He should be number 1 on this list. Brad Pitt is overexposed in the media.

  • Charlie

    This list is partly a crap. Where is Josh Hutcherson? He is more famous than Liam Hemsworth,Michael Fassbender, Theo James,Alexander Skarsgard ecc… . I am seriously thinking that Just Jared hates this guy.

  • Ga Bi

    robert <3

  • HG

    Jamie dornan will be number 1 next year just watch, the guy won’t know what hit him after valentines day lol

  • Constance

    Lord, have mercy…the lengths they’ll go….

  • Chrissy

    Not 12, just one with a ton of socks, changes monikers to converse with herself, and who works the thread nonstop. JJ knows this, I’m sure, which is why this list means nothing. One look at the IP’s would show that 99.999% of posts are coming from one person.
    It’s all the same fanatic.

  • Me1

    Robert Pattinson still in the top ten list, even without some huge blockbuster movie his star power prevails!

  • Me1

    Lol, bitter, bitter KStan. It’s obvious when you call twigs ‘thing’ by the way. That’s the power of Robert Pattinson, he doesn’t need a huge franchise to piggy back, he’s a star in his own right!!!

  • Constance

    Yes, his worthless girlfriend.

  • Kelly

    Sienna is a cheater! Check out Balthazar Getty, Jude Law, Daniel Craig, etc! (If name is Sienna, you should consider a change!) Kristen Stewart was recently nominated for her part in Still Alice and was brilliant in Camp X-Ray! Robert Pattinson’s the Rover LOST MONEY! He is a bloody douche and if you knew Tahliah (Yes, I do!) then you would know she is not better for him! (I am not saying Kristen is, but at least she admits who she is. Tahliah sleeps with women, but maybe that is what the Mama’s boy likes!)

  • Kelly

    Dream On! – Check Response to Sienna Sienna!

  • Chrissy

    Like I said…

  • Missy

    Yay for Charlie Hunnam and of course the love of my life Leo DiCaprio <3 <3 <3 All in all good list :)

  • Willy Billy

    Yay for Johnny Depp <3

  • Pitufina Deb ;)

    where the hell is Josh hutcherson?

  • Victoria Elizabeth

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one :)
