  • Britain's chiselled hunks (from left): Max Irons, Henry Cavill and Sam Claflin.

Max Irons

Who? Maximilian Paul Diarmuid Irons, but you can call him ‘Max'. His dad is British thesp, Jeremy Irons.
Tell me more… He's dating Sucker Punch actress, Emily Browning.
Chisel-ometer Max is so chiselled he was snapped up as a model for high street brand, Mango as well as Burberry.
Do ya think I'm sexy? "American actors are all muscular, tanned, white teeth and they have this indestructible confidence. We British are all... Dare I say it? Pessimistic."

Henry Cavill

Who? Remember The Count Of Monte Cristo? Henners was horrid Guy Pearce's son who wasn't really his son.
Tell me more… Henry's been dubbed the ‘Unluckiest Man In Hollywood' after missing out on the roles of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and Edward Cullen in Twilight to Robert Pattinson and the role of James Bond to Daniel Craig.
Chisel-ometer Henry is so chiselled he's the next Superman
Do ya think I'm sexy? "[As a kid I was known as] ‘Fat Cavill'. It's definitely a ****** nickname. But kids are kids. Kids are cruel. Whatever. I was fat."

Sam Claflin

Who? Brit, Sam, wowed as Philip Swift in POTC4.
Tell me more… Sam's dating an actress called Laura Haddock, whose surname earned her the moniker ‘Fishface' at school.
Chisel-ometer Sam is so chiselled that… well, he's a bit of a shy one actually. "I am not the most confident of people so the insecurities definitely came out with guns blazing," he said of his shirtless scenes in POTC4.
Do ya think I'm sexy? Hmmm, so far the 25-year-old won't be drawn on his looks, but being cast as the handsome Prince William in Snow White And The Hunstman, speaks volumes, really.
