Godfather, a film which is great for so many reasons had this impeccably hot character.
3. Travis Bickle played by Robert De Niro
“Are you talking to me?” This dialog was cult because the character who said it has become cult. Robert De Niro did not only play Travis with a certain amount of style, but also his idiosyncrasies were very attractive. Robert De Niro can never look bad. With his strange yet stylish mohawk, he looked quite stunning! In fact, his strangeness is what made him mysterious. Who does not fall for the mysterious man, after all?

Hanibal Lecter as a character has frightened people worldwide, and is one of those characters that will remain etched in our minds forever. American Film Institute has ranked this character as the ‘number one villain of all times’.
5. Alex Delarge played by Malcolm McDowell
Malcom McDowell made him one of the most memorable villains of all times. He has a cult fan following and has inspired many actors who have played similar characters in the following years. In fact, Heath Ledger accepted that Alex’s character was an inspiration for him when he was playing the Joker in 'Dark Knight'. Alex was a sociopath who used to rob, rape and assault people. Yet, he had a certain style to himself. Being a Beethoven fan, he also spoke about his rich taste. His eye makeup also became quite a rage post the release of 'The Clockwork Orange'.
6. Patrick Bateman played by Christian Bale
Christian Bale is a good looking man. He can make any character look stylish. Patrick Bateman in The American Psycho was one of his earliest roles in Hollywood. He was an investment banker who was also a womanizer. He looked dashing in his well-cut formal suits. He lived in a stylish apartment and was a rich man whom any woman would desire. But he had an ugly to side to him and his crimes included rape, torture, murder, necrophilia and cannibalism. He was an intense and layered character, which made him immensely interesting.
7. Jack Sparrow played by Johnny Depp
Jack Sparrow has to be the most lovable pirate in the history of Hollywood. He also happens to be one of the wittiest anti-heroes in Hollywood. Some people from the crew confessed how initially Jack Sparrow was supposed to be a tertiary character, but when they saw the magic that Johnny Depp created on screen with his hilarious antics and extremely stylish dialog delivery, they were awestruck. He had a very engaging screen presence that captured the audience’s attention like none other. Jack Sparrow is addicted to rum and has a naughty heart. This is one of the many reasons that make Jack Sparrow so lovable.
8. The Joker played by Heath Ledger
Even though Jack Nicholson had played this character way back in 1989, the audience loved it more when Heath Ledger brought a whole new dimension to it when he played it again in 'The Dark Knight'. This not only made him win an Academy Award posthumously, but also made the Joker one of the most memorable characters in Hollywood. He played evil with a certain edge. His dialogs have become some of the best quotable quotes. In fact, as some people say, he overshadowed Batman played by Christian Bale with his phenomenal performance.
9. Tony Montana played by Al Pacino
Al Pacino is such a personality that he can make any character look sexy. Tony Montana in 'Scarface' was sexy, suave, and hard-hitting. His style became iconic and traces of it have been seen in many other Hollywood movies. He looked so sexy with his friend (the gun) that there was no way people could ignore his captivating screen presence. His dare devil character was simply kickass!
10. Bill played by David Carradine
David has done a variety of films in his life. In fact, he has acted on stage, in television, and in all kinds of movies. He was a star in the B grade film industry of America. Bill in 'Kill Bill', played by David, was brutal and uncanny. Yet, he was a strange lover, and before he is killed in the end, you feel a lot for him and that is because he loves and hates like a warrior. David Carradine was on screen for a very little time, and even despite that, the whole film was about his search. He literally stole the show in the last few scenes.
