John Krasinski (Jim Halpert)

After leaving The Office, Krasinski, 40, shed his dorky, boy-next-door image and became a bona fide sex symbol. He most recently starred as CIA analyst Jack Ryan on the latest revival of Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.

To make his life even sweeter, he married Emily Blunt, and they have two daughters together. Oh, and he can officially add “director” to his resume thanks to the critically acclaimed horror flick A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, also starring Blunt.
