When you think of super hot actors in the eighties. Rob Lowe, John Stamos, Denzel Washington, Johnny Depp, Christian Slater might be popular examples of who will come to mind.
Our tastes are always diverse. Here are ten that floated my boat…
1. Mark Hamill
While most women loved Harrison Ford in the original Star Wars trilogy, Mark was definitely gorgeous with his blonde-haired, blue-eyed, boyish innocence. Born in Oakland, California in 1952 and married to his wife Marilou York since 1978. Marilou certainly was one lucky lady!
I know in my dreams!
2. Andrew McCarthy
Sparkling blue eyes, dark wavy hair, always playing the good guy in the Brat Pack movies. Who didn’t fall in love with him in Pretty in Pink, though James Spader was extremely sexy in that movie also. Molly Ringwald is so lucky!
Yes, I know. Again in my dreams!!!
3. Ralph Macchio
What can one say? The Karate Kid with his tanned skin, large innocent doey brown eyes and neverending resilience against the bullies was quite the heartthrob.
4. Micheal Ontkean
Super hot playing Sherrif Harry S. Truman in Twin Peaks. Loved the curly dark hair, dark brown eyes. He was undeniably handsome in a very quiet sultry way.
5. Anson Williams
Does anybody else think Potsie from Happy Days was really handsome? How was he a nerd? And when he would sing, that was even sexier. Remember when he sang “Put your Head on my Shoulder” to Joannie! Another cutie with wavy dark hair and beautiful blue eyes.
6. Terence Knox
Does anybody remember the show, Tour of Duty? And the rugged sergeant Zeke Anderson! He had the thick dark spiky hair, wore the headband and had just had some very manly masculine good looks. I doubt many women would be complaining about being rescued by him!
7. Alan Alda
Alan Alda, famous for his womanizing character on Mash, is still happily married to his wife Arlene since 1957. He won three Emmys for his work on the hit TV show. His dark hair, blue eyes, slapstick humor, and super sensitive qualities earned him a place on this list.
8. William Zabka
He is the blonde male villain in every eighties movie. The antagonist that bullied Ralph Macchio in the Karate Kid. He was without a doubt easy on the eyes with his feathered blond hair and never-ending pissed off look! He actually aged very well and is still quite handsome.
9. Dirk Benedict
Well if you ever watched Battlestar Galactica or the A-Team and had a thing for cute blonde guys you won’t have to think twice about who Dirk Benedict is. He was definitely a pretty boy! Always suave and charming. This one could talk always talk his way out of a paper bag!
10. John Ritter
Sadly he is no longer with us. But, on a more positive note, when he was in Three’s Company he was really cute. Not just because he was hilarious, but something about that floppy light brown hair, naivety, clean cut natural good looks, harmlessness and goofy behavior made him extremely sweet and appealing.
