Number 1: Orlando Bloom
Occupation: Actor Who in the world doesn’t know Orlando Bloom? Like Keira Knightley (who placed second in our last Top Ten post), this heart-throb has starred in Disney’s world famous franchise The Pirates of the Caribbean, as the blacksmith turned pirate, William Turner. Not only is he known for his unhygienic piracy, he is also known as the fair haired elven archer, Legolas in another most famous franchise, The Lord of the Rings, and is currently working on The Hobbit Trilogy. Recently he’s been in the tabloids, due to a scandal that took place in Spain last summer, a row involving Justin Beiber and Miranda Kerr, as well as other stars that stood by watching. However, despite that small stain in his profile, it’s clear that, to many, Orlando can do no wrong.
