IrishCentral’s top ten hot Irish American actors
Chiseled good looks, cheeky Irish charm and of course acting skills make these our top Irish American actors
Wahlberg is one of nine children born in Dorchester, Boston. His family is of Swedish, Irish, English and French Canadian ancestry.
7 Ashton Kutcher
Ashton Kutcher is now such a big deal that he seems to make a living off his Twitter account. Kutcher’s career started in “That’s 70s Show” as the loveable eejit Kelso. Since then he’s appeared in movies such as “Dude, Where’s my Car," “The Butterfly Effect” and “What Happens in Vegas." He also helped create TV shows such as “Punk’d," “Room 401” and “Beauty and the Geek."
Kutcher was born in Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Diane (nee Finnegan). He is of part Irish ancestry and was raised as a conservative Roman Catholic.
8 Matthew McConaughey
After some pretty minor roles in the early 1990s, Matthew McConaughy sky-rocketed to fame after his role in “Dazed and Confused." He then starred in movies such as “A Time to Kill," “Sahara” and “We Are Marshall." He’s best know for, one, not being able to keep his top on for long and, two, his roles in romantic comedy’s such as “The Wedding Planner," “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days” and “Ghosts of Girlfriend’s Past."
McConaughey is one of three boys born in Uvalde, Texas to Mary Kathleen (nee McCabe) and James Donald McConaughey. He is of Irish descent.
9 Chris Evans
Famously Chris Evan’s played the Human Torch in “Fantastic Four” and "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer”. Of course this led to years of jokes like “he’s too hot to handle” et cetera, but we tend to agree. He also starred in a much underrated thriller “Cellular” and soon he’ll be gracing our silver screens as the one and only “Captain America."
Evan’s was born in Sudbury Massachusetts and is of Italian (on his maternal grandfather’s side) and Irish descent.
10 Vince Vaughn
Since his great movie "Swingers" with best friend and comedy soulmate Jon Favreau, we have been of the opinion that Vince Vaughn is “so the money." There’s no denying it that he brings charm, class and comedy to everything he touches. Just some of his more recent films are “Anchorman," “The Break-up” and “Couples Retreat."
Vaughn was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and is of Irish, Italian, English, German, and Lebanese ancestory.
