Top 10 Sexy Beasts

11 of 11

1. Marlon Brando as Stanley Kowalski in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE

No sexy beast on or off this list would exist without Brando. Period. The entire idea of sexy beastness originates with this 1951 performance—1951!—in that hot, New Orleans apartment. Sure, LAST TANGO IN PARIS is hot. But STREETCAR made it hot.
