Holiday Hunks! These Cheesy Christmas Movies Star the Hottest Guys

‘Tis the season … to watch all the Christmas movies on TV we can possibly fit onto our DVR. We’re kind of obsessed with the cheesy goodness, no matter how good or bad-good (or straight-up bad) they may sometimes be. However, what we’re celebrating the most this holiday season is all of the hot, romantic love interests sprinkled through these flicks. Sure, a lot of the time you get a bland guy who fulfills his role as the protagonist’s man simply because he kind of is just there and goes through the motions. But then sometimes you find a guy so hot — and so charming — that he sweeps you off your feet, even though you’re just the viewer at home.

One such cutesy Christmas film leading man who does just that is Henry Golding in Last Christmas. The 2019 romantic dramedy hit really turned viewers heads with its sweet romance, unexpected twists and, obviously, its holiday hunk.

“It’s super-snappy. I love the film for that reason,” Henry told Entertainment Weekly about the popular movie in November 2019. “The motion of this film is amazing. You never get bored. You’re always laughing or you’re concerned or you’re crying or you’re enjoying them falling in love. There’s so much happening.”

The Crazy Rich Asians actor starred opposite Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke — and their chemistry made for some memorable moments. “We sneak in one of the most amazing on-screen kisses the world will see. It’s such a magical moment. It’s so fitting for it,” Henry gushed to the outlet. “We don’t need anything else. It fills that wish fulfillment that we all want to see these two beautiful characters love each other.”

Oh, did we mention Henry’s character is a ghost? We’ll let you figure out the specifics — but he joins the late (and legendary) Patrick Swayze as one of the hot specters in pop culture. “I never really thought about that, to be honest with you,” Henry laughed over the comparison during the interview with EW. “But being one of those dreamy ghost dudes, I’m all for it!”

Over the years, we’ve fallen for some of these hunks. And now we’re sharing our favorite Christmas movie cuties to help spread the holiday cheer to everyone. Check out the Life & Style editorial crew’s favorite Christmas flicks — and the hot guys who star in them.
