We got a hot list of the 6 best rom-com actors of all time here! Rom-coms have captured the hearts of many and while some are traditional tales of sweeping love romances, the others had some twists to shock the viewers, so we think there is a rom-com for everyone and it is possible for every person to like rom-coms. Setting aside the movies, there are some actors who made their name known through amazing rom-com masterpieces, so it is worth talking about the best rom-com actors of all time.
There are different best rom-com actors on our list ranging from bad guys with a heart of gold to dorks, daring men with a feisty edge, and to the wallflowers. Since the early 1990s, most of the men in our list of best rom-com actors hurt our hearts, made us laugh, and we had our crushes over them. But who are the most known and loved rom-coms actors of all time? Let’s find out without making the rom-com fans wait.
1. Richard Gere
Richard Gere is the best rom-com actor and he is a humanitarian and a performer. He rose to popularity in films like Looking for Mr. Goodbar and Days of Heaven, along with his major role in American Gigolo he quickly became a heartthrob. His portrayal as Zack, the US Navy Officer trainee in An Officer and a Gentleman was the best one yet. Since then, the humanitarian Buddhist actor has starred in a number of blockbusters.
Gere was raised by his father and mother and he had three sisters and two brothers. He literally grow up to be idolized as a hottie across the world.
2. Hugh Grant
Hugh Grant was born September 9, 1960, in Hammersmith and he is the 2nd best rom-com actor on our list. He is a British actor best known for his major performances as lovable and amusing love interests in romantic comedies, but it was interesting to know that Grant did not become active in acting until his senior year at the University of Oxford. He was a member of a drama club and participated in a student film called Privileged first time in his life. Hugh Grant is over 60 now but he has an unmistakable charisma and good features.
3. Mark Ruffalo
Mark Ruffalo was born on November 22, 1967, in Kenosha and he is one of the best rom-com actors but many people know him from his portrayal of Bruce Banner/the Hulk. Even though he is known for superhero movies, we can call him a true rom-com actor. In the well-received reality-based crime drama Zodiac (2007), he played a police inspector, and in the romantic comedy The Brothers Bloom, he played a con guy (2008) and he literally smashed his part.
Ruffalo had a rom-com period given his non-threatening masculinity and it might be totally unexpected for some fans to imagine him as a rom-com actor. His credits include 13 Going on 30, Begin Again, Just Like Heaven, and In The Cut, which are all rom-coms that have Ruffalo as the key character.
4. Michael Ealy
We fell in love with Michael with his debut in the 2012 blockbuster movie Think Like A Man which granted him 4th place on the list of best rom-com actors. Michael Ealy has amazing eyes and his on-screen portrayals were always a steal. Michael joined the cast of Being Mary Jane in Season 4 as Justin Talbot, Gabrielle Union’s Mary Jane Paul’s troublesome love interest and we still cannot forget him. We also couldn’t take our eyes off Michael in the music video for Queen Beyoncé’s latest song Halo.
5. Matthew McConaughey
Matthew McConaughey was Hollywood’s favorite romantic comedy leading man and an Oscar established him a Best Actor award. Jennifer Lawrence presented Matthew McConaughey with the Oscar for Best Actor for his acting skills in “Dallas Buyers Club” in 2014, and we think he deserves to be on our list of best rom-com actors. From 2001 until 2009, he had a shirtless rom-com McConaughey period but eventually, he chose to take chances on more dramatic material. We know his decision paid off handsomely, and it was the golden era of McConaughey romances.
6. Henry Golding
Henry Golding is the last one on our list of best rom-com actors and he is known for the movie Last Christmas which is inspired by the late George Michael’s iconic holiday song. It has sold over 115 million records and was number one on a lot of platforms during his career. Oscar-winner Thompson and playwright Bryony Kimmings collaborated on the script and the movie made Golding get his name known. He is currently 35 years old and since 2014, he has been a presenter on BBC’s The Travel Show.
