We know we shouldn’t love bad boys—after all, they’ve had temper tantrums, drug addictions and prison stays—but they’re just so damn hot. Bad boys have been a staple of the silver screen for decades, from James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause to The Breakfast Club’s John Bender, but the hot-headed heartthrobs who get our blood boiling (in the best way!) are the real deal. These are the real-life bad boys we just can’t help but love!
JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS
This Dublin-born hottie was a bad boy even before he hit Hollywood—he was permanently expelled from high school at age 16! Two arrests and four rehab stints later, Meyers has since gotten straight and sober, but his sexy, sinister recent role as decapitating, divorcing royal bad boy King Henry VIII in Showtime’s The Tudors shows that, luckily for us ladies, this Irish lad hasn’t shed his bad boy side just yet!
