80s Heatthrobs That Managed To Get Even Hotter

Updated on

80s heartthrobs

Ugh, it certainly isn’t fair that some people were basically born with good looks and they only get even more attractive as they age. On the other hand, it isn’t so bad when we get to see these hot guys in Magazines and on TV all the time. Can you believe your favorite contemporary actors were this hot 30 years ago?

14. Rob Lowe

Lowe was hot back in 1983 when he made his debut in the 1983 movie, The Outsiders, and he officially became memorable as a member of the “brat pack” when he starred in the coming-of-age film, St. Elmo’s Fire, 2 years later.

Rob Lowe hit a bit of a low point in his life after a sex tape starring himself and an underage girl was leaked, and he battled severe drug addiction after that. The actor made his comeback starring in the TV show, West Wing in 1996, and now we get to see his attractive face in shows like Parks and Recreations! He sure hasn’t lost his looks.

13. John Stamos

Kids who grew in the 1990’s all wish they had Uncle Jesse in their lives, because let’s face it, an uncle is never this hot! We watched for 8 years as John Stamos’ looks in Full House just got better and better.

Now, the actor and musician is still winning our hearts because damn, does he still look good for a 52-year-old! We don’t know what he does with his hair, but, clearly, it is working!

12. Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has basically been every girl’s fantasy boyfriend and paired with Angelina Jolie, their kids never have to worry about being ugly!

In the 80’s, he was still a struggling actor trying to make something of himself but with a face like that, it didn’t take long before he became famous! Now, he is 52-years-old and showing no signs of aging, and is still as effortlessly cool as he was in his 20’s!

11. Johnny Depp

We all know Johnny Depp is super hot now (thank you, Dior for putting him in your advertisements) but have you ever seen what he looked like in the 1980’s?

The actor became famous after starring in the TV series 21 Jump Street as a teen and kept being in the spotlight ever since. Now, we know him as the most attractive pirate there could be and we basically go see any movie he is in just so we can swoon over him!

This next heartthrob never seems to age. Can you guess who he is?

10. Denzel Washington

Well, look who took a dip in the foundation of youth! It is like he is still that same 28-year-old starring in NBC’s TV series  St. Elsewhere.

Most recently he was in the movie The Equalizer (2014) but don’t worry, we will be seeing his beautiful face in more films coming out later this year!

9. Matt Dillon

Rob Lowe wasn’t the only hot guy in the movie The Outsiders and many people fell in love with his character Dally!

He no longer has those luscious locks but he still has that attractive face and adorable smile! Now you can see him playing the sexy secret service agent Ethan Burke on Fox’s show Wayward Pines!

8. Will Smith

Now this is a story all about how Will Smith became one of Hollywood’s hottest and most popular actors! Did you know that he is older than Uncle Phil was when The Fresh Prince of Bel Aire started?

He must have used the same fountain that Denzel Washington used because damn, does he not look like a 47-year-old. Jada Pinkett is one lucky lady!

Hold on tight, more 80s heartthrobs are coming your way!

7. Jason Bateman

People normally don’t look at Jason Bateman and think he is overly attractive but have you ever seen pictures of him from the 80’s?

He acted in a couple of TV series in the 1980’s and became a teen idol after starring in The Hogan Family. People now remember him as Michael Bluth from Arrested Development and personally, we think he has that cute guy vibe!

6. George Clooney

Not very many men can pull off having gray hair and still look fabulous but George Clooney certainly knows how to!

Even in the 80’s, with his funky hairstyle, he was still a really attractive man but now, he is even more eye-catching!

5. Dylan McDermott

We fell in love with him when he played Julia Roberts love interest in Steel Magnolias (1989) and boy, has he come a long way since then (looks wise). Back then, he looked like a baby!

Since he played a role in two seasons of American Horror Story, we will forever remember him for that but man, was he good looking!

4. Tom Cruise

We were introduced to his pretty face in the 1981 film Endless Love and the actor has only gotten prettier!

While he has been in many Hollywood films, Tom Cruise’s most notable character is Ethan Hunt from the Mission Impossible series. Man, did he look so hot doing all those stunts in tight black pants!

3. Liam Neeson

He is the oldest man on this list at age 62, but he still is considered a very attractive man, and you can definitely see why!

Liam Neeson became famous in the 80’s for starring in 5 films alongside actors such as Mel Gibson, Robert De Niro, and Dennis Quaid. In 2011, Empire Magazine named him one of the “100 Sexiest Stars in Film History” and we think you’d agree!

Don’t worry, we saved the best for last!

2. Lenny Kravitz

We were so sad when they killed off Cinna in the Hunger Games because not only did I love his character, but we also loved seeing a sexy Lenny Kravitz acting alongside Jennifer Lawrence.

He is even hotter when he is rocking it out on stage in his retro outfits that only he could look so damn good in. Never change Lenny!

1. Patrick Dempsey

McDreamy has been stealing our hearts with his gorgeous eyes since he started his acting career when he was in his 20’s.

If you loved Patrick Demsey in Grey’s Anatomy (it kind of kills us that we have to use past tense) then you are going to want to see some of his films from the 80’s, like Can’t Buy Me Love!” We can’t believe he was so handsome even back then!
