There are a lot of beautiful actresses working in Hollywood, but the ones who star in genre flicks are among fan favorites. Whether it’s horror, sci-fi or fantasy, the geekier the role the more interested fans seem to be!
We can’t help but be jealous of the lucky guys who end up dating or marrying these women. Here are the five luckiest guys who are guaranteed to turn any geek green with envy!
The handsome actor who portrayed Obi Wan Kenobi wouldn’t normally need to use the Force to attract someone as gorgeous as Mary Elizabeth Winstead, but the two met on the set of Fargo where McGregor portrayed one very unattractive brother in dual roles.
Depending on your preferences, you could call either of these two lucky for landing the other, but my personal jealousy for McGregor reached an all-time high after he ended up with this particular actress. After all, Mary Elizabeth Winstead is easily one of the most beautiful women working in Hollywood, and she chooses roles that ooze with cool. Just look out for her evil ex-boyfriends, McGregor, I hear Scott Pilgrim is looking for you!
You know you’re living the dream when you get to secretly marry Zoe Saldana. There aren’t many actresses with as much geek cred as Saldana, who has played alien characters both blue and green in some of the biggest sci-fi hits of the century so far.
After taking on top-notch roles in Star Trek, Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s not a geek on the planet who wouldn’t want to at least meet the woman responsible for so much baddassery on screen. But to get to settle down with her? That’s next level. Marco Perego, you are one lucky dude.
Some guys have all the luck… Not only are they incredibly funny, they are also handsome. This is definitely the case for Jason Sudeikis and we’re sure it helped him land the beautiful Olivia Wilde.
While Wilde may not carry the same geek cred as Winstead or Saldana, her role as Quorra in the sequel to Tron and her role in Cowboys & Aliens with Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig definitely earned her spot amongst geek royalty. Funnyman Sudeikis therefore makes our list of the luckiest guys in Hollywood.
We think it would probably take a lot of work to keep Hermione happy, but lucky for Chord Overstreet, Emma Watson seems much more down to earth than the particular wizard.
Watson is very secretive about her personal life, and that is highly commendable in the age of Instagram and oversharing. She’s also a lot more than just geek royalty for her roles in Harry Potter and off-kilter films like The Circle – She is an incredibly intelligent and compassionate woman who works hard for social equality. What could be more attractive than that?
Reports that Overstreet and Watson were dating are already months old and the two could be history now for all we know. But needless to say, whomever ends up with Watson will be one of the luckiest guys in Hollywood.
Because you can’t have a list of beautiful people with just one Emma, Dave McCary makes our list as the current partner of Emma Stone, easily one of the most gorgeous women working in Hollywood with plenty of geek cred thanks to Zombieland, The Amazing Spider-Man and Birdman.
Emma Stone, like Watson, seems to be keeping her relationships on the downlow since her highly public relationship with Spider-Man Andrew Garfield. She’s been linked to a few actors since that break-up, including Justin Theroux, but these days rumors point to Dave McCary, a segment director for Saturday Night Live. Considering Stone’s comedy chops, it’s unsurprising that she would be attracted to people who work in the comedy field.
Because of her combination of brains and beauty, we easily consider Dave McCary to be one of the top luckiest dudes in Hollywood. Don’t screw this one up, man!
