9 Bad Boys That We Love ...

By Alison

While I don’t quite believe that women don’t like good, eligible guys, there’s something about bad boys that we can’t help but love. Here’s my pick of the many bad but lovable guys.

1 Robert Downey Jr

Robert Downey JrGets himself into an awful lot of trouble but still remains somehow utterly charming. A damn good actor to boot. Must be the sexy superhero thing he has going on.

3 Sean Penn

Sean PennEven starred in a film called Bad Boys. Vocal, outspoken, and always good for annoying people who deserve to be annoyed.

4 Mickey Rourke

Mickey RourkeGod, I love Mickey’s attitude. He is himself, regardless of what anyone thinks of his fashion sense or lack of it. Still something of a hell-raiser –-- certainly not one to go out quietly.

5 Christian Slater

Christian SlaterAnother good actor who’s had many a run-in with the law. I just love that cheeky face though.

6 Oliver Reed

Oliver ReedSadly much too fond of the bottle, which led him to an early death. However, Reed was one of the most talented actors of his generation. Even when he later became more famous for his drunken misbehavior, he still managed to appear endearing.

7 Henry Rollins

Henry RollinsTattooed frontman of various bands since the 80s, Rollins looks like a thug but is actually one of the funniest men around. Watch his spoken word performances and laugh until you can’t see for tears.

8 Lord Byron

Lord ByronGoing back a bit here, but Byron still fascinates 200 years after his death. Famously described as being ‘Mad, bad and dangerous to know’. Makes many of today’s bad boys look like amateurs.

9 Robert Mitchum

Robert MitchumThe original Hollywood bad boy, Mitchum is probably my favorite actorof all time. I quote, ‘There are all kinds of rumors about me. And they’re all true’.
