True Blood premiered on September 7, 2008, and in honor of the show’s 10-year anniversary, we’re taking a look back at all of the sexy beasts in Hollywood.
Scott Howard (Teen Wolf)
Michael J. Fox starred as the titular Teen Wolf in the first film (Jason Bateman played the hairy teen in the sequel). Who wouldn’t be attracted to someone that good at basketball?
Remus Lupin (Harry Potter series)
David Thewlis’s werewolf teacher from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was hot enough that we’d voluntarily spend time in detention with him.
Eric Northman (True Blood)
It’s a Skarsgård. What more do we need to say?
In our defense, he’s also played by a Skarsgård.
Bill Compton (True Blood)
Stephen Moyer’s gentlemanly Civil War-era vampire charmed the fangs off us.
Who cares if he sparkles in the sun? Robert Pattinson defined “heartthrob” even if his heart didn’t actually, you know, beat.
We weren’t going to forget #TeamJacob. Taylor Lautner’s protective, loving werewolf would have made a great match for Bella, if you forget the whole “falling in love with her infant child” thing.
Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
Elena does become a vampire, even if she also becomes human again, so she definitely counts.
The Creature (Penny Dreadful)
Look, he’s made of decomposing corpses so he’s not perfect. But Frankenstein’s monster (Rory Kinnear) has that pale skin and dark hair of a Byronic hero, plus he loves poetry.
Spike (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
The ultimate bad boy with a heart of gold. Only James Marsters could pull off that bleached blonde look. The British accent probably helped.
Elijah (The Vampire Diaries)
Unpopular opinion: Elijah (Daniel Gillies) is… hotter than Damon. No, really, think about it. Elijah looks like someone you could actually spend a nice Saturday afternoon having a picnic with without fear of being impaled by a jawline.
Jerry Dandrige (Fright Night, 2011)
Colin Farrell played the dangerous neighbor with a deadly secret in the 2011 remake of Fright Night, and he looked good doing it.
Jennifer (Jennifer's Body)
Megan Fox starred in the criminally underappreciated Diablo Cody satire about a high school girl who becomes a literal man-eater.
Alcide (True Blood)
Does turning into a werewolf automatically give you Joe Manganiello abs?
Sam Wheat (Ghost)
Ghosts would be a lot less scary if they all turned up shirtless and helped you with arts and crafts.
The Grey Lady (Harry Potter series)
Helena Ravenclaw (Kelly MacDonald) has that distant, brooding thing down cold.
Sigourney Weaver absolutely rocks that 80’s off the shoulder look.
Adam Maitland (Beetlejuice)
With the plaid shirt and wire-rim glasses, Alec Baldwin’s Adam Maitland looks like he could totally be a modern-day Brooklyn hunk. Plus, look at that peek of chest hair. And he’s total dad-material.
Madeline Ashton (Death Becomes Her)
Sure, the side effects for immortality are going to hit eventually, but until then, Meryl’s narcissistic actress Madeline has looks to kill for.
Damon (The Vampire Diaries)
That jawline! Those icy blue eyes! Ian Somerhalder made being cold look so hot.
Lily Frankenstein (Penny Dreadful)
There’s a reason everyone who meets her falls in love with her. Billie Piper’s Lily is smart, calculating, seductive and fully gorgeous, even if she’s a resurrected corpse.
Dracula (Penny Dreadful)
Can you really blame Vanessa Ives for wanting to go over to the dark side when Dracula (Christian Camargo) was posing as a sexy zoologist?
R (Warm Bodies)
The ultimate zombie with a heart of gold, we’d let Nicholas Hoult play Romeo to our Juliet any day of the week, alive or dead.
Jack Skellington (The Nightmare Before Christmas)
Impossible to deny: the Pumpkin King has BDE. Maybe it’s his confidence, or his moments of introspection, or the childlike way he goes after what he wants. Or maybe it’s just that he’s super tall. Even if Sally deserves better, Jack is still hot.
The Beast (Beauty and the Beast)
Don’t @ us, but he’s hotter as a beast than he is as a human.
The fish monster (The Shape of Water)
You saw his abs right? And thanks to a helpful demonstration, we know that his goods are also there.
