These are some SERIOUSLY hot bad, bad men.

We are fierce, strong, independent, amazing women.

Seriously, we are.

And some of us (okay, most of us) have a thing for the bad boys. We can’t help it.

We know we shouldn’t. We know it’s a habit we should break and that they are anything but good for us. But sometimes, we fall in love with them anyway.

Which is totally not your fault!

Some say it might be your desire for adventure, your desire to save someone, a desire for something totally new and different (hello rebellion!) or maybe it’s because they remind you of your father. Yes, there might be some “science” behind your attraction to the bad boys.

But let’s be real…..it might have more to do with the gorgeously hot villains we are surrounded with in television and movies.

I know you agree with me because the moment I said hot villains, you thought of a few gorgeous men, didn’t you? (Don't worry...so did we!)

Whether we identify more with the heroes or with the villains, we all have those men that, from the moment they come on screen, our scruples go out the window and we suddenly start hoping that maybe, just this once, evil should win.

Because they are just hot as heck as we cannot help but cheer them on. Doesn’t matter what crimes they are committing … ok maybe it does but they can, for the most part, do almost anything and we will still support them as good spouses (thanks to the brilliant imaginary dream we had to them in which they madly profess their love for us to the world).

If you’re still sitting there thinking we’re crazy, that you’d NEVER leave the light for the dark side (not even for those supposedly AMAZING cookies they have there), well just try to get through this gallery of 31 hot villains without wanting to join the Dark Side.
