He's so dreamy

Slide 1 of 11

Movie heartthrobs from around the worldBy Frank PaivaSpecial to MSN MoviesStraight women and gay men don't discriminate. If you're a man who looks good with your shirt off, it doesn't matter if you were born in Idaho or the Serengeti plains, Cleveland or the Amazon jungle.Channing Tatum, People magazine's current reigning Sexiest Man Alive, was born in Alabama. Other American winners from the past decade include hunky favorites like Matt Damon, George Clooney and Bradley Cooper. But look a bit beyond that and you'll notice a growing trend: Like nearly every other industry in the United States, Hollywood is outsourcing. But instead of outsourcing something normal like T-shirt production or customer service, they're outsourcing heartthrobs.Consider jack of all trades Hugh Jackman. He's equally adept at singing high notes or ripping a man apart. He's also from Australia. Or look at Ryan Gosling, star of a thousand Internet memes. Hey girl, he's from Canada. "Twilight" brooder Robert Pattinson is from England. Ryan Reynolds, Jude Law, Boris Kodjoe, Antonio Banderas and Gerard Butler were all born overseas.And those are only the handsome men who've made it in America.
