There is something about celebrities that fascinate people to the core. According to psychologists, celebrities are like drugs of the modern society, putting fans under spell through their looks, physique, or talents. Even when people know that these celebrities are just playing roles in television series or movies, they are emotionally impacted by them to the point that they cry when they cry and laugh when they laugh. Some people are so in love with these celebrities that they try to imitate them in every possible way—from the way they dress up, the way they style their way, and the way they talk. Because of this, it has been a trend for famous brands to get the hottest actors and athletes of their time as their brand ambassadors. In the actual world, female fanatics outnumber their male counterparts. They are more aggressive and spend a lot of time and effort following their idols and knowing more about their personal lives. So, here is a list of the 10 hottest hunks to watch out for this 2014:
