Ryan Gosling: Splash News; All Other Photos: INF Events
As 2011 is coming to a close (we know, we don’t believe it either), we’re counting down some of the things that made this year so great. We’ve all been graced with the presence of Hollywood’s amazing new rising stars, not so graced with the presence of these OMG outfits, wowed by incredible music collaborations, and completely jealous of these celeb hook-ups. Now, we’re counting down the year’s hottest hot guys that make our jaws drop and our hearts melt just like we did in 2010 because, well, hot guys are basically our specialty here at Teen.com. Enjoy!
We seriously couldn’t imagine our fave show, Glee
, without Darren Criss. And hot pink sunglasses wouldn’t be all the rage they are today without him, amirite? Whether DC is doing really hot photo shoots
or old and wrinkly
in 50+ years, he’ll always have a special place in our hearts.
Oh hey, reason we watch The Vampire Diaries
every week. Paul may be married
IRL, but that doesn’t stop us (or anyone else!) from gawking at him.
A big congrats are in order for Drake this year. His second album
, Take Care
, has been getting rave reviews, and he’s sung some of our fave songs of the past 12 months. Popular, talented, AND hot? Yeah, we’d call that the whole package. Rihanna
or Nicki Minaj
, get on
2011 was a big year for Joe. He put out his very first solo record
, went on a European tour
with Britney Spears
, and got all kinds of raunchy in his music video
for “Just In Love.” Joe isn’t a little boy anymore, but we like him all grown-up and scruffy. Yum.
