Number 1 – Robert Carlyle;
Age 37;
We love him because: He can convince us he’s a cosy cop like Hamish Macbeth or a nutter drug addict in Trainspotting. Whatever, Cosmo readers have fallen in love with every character he’s played. He says he chooses a script for its ‘social comment’ and you can’t help being impressed. But you ain’t seen nothing yet–just wait until you get a load of his frilly shirt and knee-high boots playing a highwayman in this autumn’s swashbuckler, Plunkett and Macleane. No work-shy fop, he’s just finished filming Angela’s Ashes with Emily Watson in Dublin and is starring in a film called Ravenous in the new year.
Man we’d most love to: Strip for us in our own private version of The Full Monty.
