7. Michael Douglas as Gordon Gekko in WALL STREET

OK, so maybe it’s still a little unclear to you (and us) exactly what we mean by ‘sexy beast’—let’s just agree to cast a wide net. And what do we catch at #7? A snake named after a lizard. Gordon Gekko is not an assassin or psychopath, but he makes a career out of destroying people, becoming a hero to the rather unsexy beasts of the real Wall Street. Twenty years later the man still looks cool on a mobile phone with the dimensions of a toaster oven.
