#16: LEONARDO DICAPRIO as Jack Dawson from Titanic
BRB while I go sob. WILL MY HEART EVER GO ON? WILL IT?
#17: ALLEN LEECH as Tom Branson in Downton Abbey
I love Branson because he is a passionate, angry and fiery character and I honestly think he looks better when defiant, but here he is smiling at Sybil (he only ever smiles when she’s in the frame). Oh, Branson. <333
#18: DAN STEVENS as Matthew Crawley in Downton Abbey
At this point in the show, I began to sing a song. It is called “Marry me,” and those are the only two lyrics I remember.
#19: ROMAIN DURIS as Louis Échard in Populaire
Romain Duris thinks he’s too suave to fall in love with his bumbling typist….except he’s NOT! Watch this movie for some exquisite French hotness.
