When it comes to men, I don’t really have a “type,” but I tend toward ruggedly handsome, and I’d never kick a set of chiseled cheekbones out of bed. Hence, my enduring crush on Viggo Mortensen.
As far as I’m concerned, Viggo is everyone’s type. The chameleon-like actor is devastatingly good-looking, but he resists being the leading man or “movie star.” Instead, he chooses challenging roles in all sorts of movies (like Green Book, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination) and he’s not afraid to get naked for them, including his Oscar-nominated performance in Captain Fantastic. When asked about his penchant for full-frontal nudity in a profile in Esquire, Viggo said he doesn’t understand what the fuss is about: “It’s just a penis. Every man has one.” Over the years, we’ve seen him engage in a naked knife fight (Eastern Promises), perform cunnilingus on a woman dressed in a cheerleading uniform (A History of Violence), and make sweet, sweet love under a waterfall (A Walk on the Moon). He can morph effortlessly from boyishly handsome to dirty hot, and whatever your “type,” Viggo can play it. Here are 36 photos that prove Viggo can be whatever kind of hot you want.
