Paul William Walker IV is an American actor with Albanian heritage. He became well known in 1999 after his role in the hit film Varsity Blues. He is also known for starring in the surprise hit The Fast and the Furious. His other films include Joy Ride, Running Scared, Into the Blue and Eight Below. The films he has starred in have grossed more than $1.1 billion.
Born in Glendale, California and raised in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles County, he is the son of a fashion model and a sewer contractor. His paternal grandfather was a professional boxer. He is the oldest of five, having two brothers and two sisters.
Walker’s film career began in 1987, with the horror/comedy film Monster in the Closet. In 2001, Walker’s breakthrough role arrived when he starred opposite actor Vin Diesel in the successful action film The Fast and the Furious. The film established Walker as a notable film star and leading man and led to his reprisal of the role in the 2003 sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious. He continued his career with leading roles in films such as Joy Ride, Into the Blue, and Timeline, and also reprised his role in the fifth installment of The Fast and the Furious series, Fast Five.
Walker currently resides in Santa Barbara, California, with his dogs, one of which is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever. He has a daughter, Meadow (born in 1998), who lives with her mother in Hawaii. He is an avid surfer and enjoys the beach. Walker holds a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ricardo “Franjinha” Miller at Paragon Jiu-Jitsu.
Paul Walker isn’t gay, but he sure does look good with his shirt off, and since his hobbies are marine biology and surfing, there are plenty of shots on the internet of him half naked. Unlike many of Hollywood’s leading men, he has mostly avoided gay rumors that seem to swirl around the hotties in show biz, but we won’t hold that against him, and neither should you. Especially if you think he’s one of Hollywood’s Hottest. Make sure you take a second to vote for him in our Who’s Hot contest.

Ryan Thomas Gosling is a Canadian actor, director, writer and musician. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club (1993–95) and went on to appear in other family entertainment.
Gosling came to the attention of a wider audience in 2004 with a leading role in the romantic drama The Notebook, for which he won four Teen Choice Awards and an MTV Movie Award. His performance as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson (2006) was nominated for an Academy Award and his performance as a socially inept loner in Lars and the Real Girl (2007) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. Also in 2007, he starred in the courtroom thriller Fracture. After a three-year acting hiatus, Gosling starred in Blue Valentine, earning him a second Golden Globe nomination. 2011 proved to be a landmark year for the actor as he appeared in three mainstream films – the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, the political drama The Ides of March and the thriller Drive – and received two Golden Globe nominations. In 2013, he starred in the period crime feature Gangster Squad, and the generational drama The Place Beyond the Pines, and will next appear in the revenge film Only God Forgives.
Like his fellow Who’s Hot nominee Paul Walker, Gosling was raised in the Mormon faith, and he was home schooled for part of his education. He credits his strict upbringing with giving him focus. As a youngster, he was roommates with Justin Timberlake, who’s mother actually became his legal guardian during their tenure on The Mickey Mouse Club, which filmed in Orlando. Just imagine Justin Timberlake and Ryan Gosling sharing a house these days… Talk about gay fantasies! Let’s just stop now before this turns into an episode of Hotspots After Dark.
