Battle of the Hot Ryans: Who Had the Best Year Ever? (POLL)

It’s no secret that some of Hollywood’s Hottest leading men are named “Ryan,” but it also seems as though the name is synonymous for “success”. From big screen actors like Ryan Gosling and Ryan Reynolds to television bad boy Ryan Kwanten and the forever loved Ryan Phillippe, the Hottest Hollywood Hunks each had a big year.

We can’t bring 2011 to a close without recognizing the success of these sexy stars, which is why Celebuzz presents you with another Battle of the Hot Ryans: Which Ryan had the best year ever?

Vote in our poll for the Ryan you think should hold the title! If you need a little help deciding, allow us to refresh your memory.

Ryan Gosling

Is it just us or was Ryan Gosling in the news all year? The sexy action star had several leading roles in movies like Crazy, Stupid, Love (you know, the one with the abs), the action drama Drive and the political thriller The Ides of March alongside George Clooney. He made us all swoon every time he hit a red carpet and even caused an uproar when he was NOT (gasp!) chosen as People’s Sexiest Man of the Year. He’s also reportedly dating actress and co-star Eva Mendes. If that wasn’t enough, Gosling was the subject of the popular “Hey girl” internet meme.

Ryan Kwanten

We desperately miss Ryan Kwanten when he’s not heating up our television screens during his risqué True Blood scenes. His hit drama series will return for its fifth season during the summer of 2012 and he consistently makes the lists of hunkiest actors on television. Reports have also circulated that he is set to guest star on the Valentine’s Day episode of the popular television series New Girl alongside Zooey Deschanel.

Ryan Phillippe

Ryan Phillippe made jaws drop and eyes tear up when he stated back in April that he was thinking about ending his acting career to move behind the camera. Before long, we were enjoying his appearances in not one, not two, but three films: The Big Bang Club, The Lincoln Lawyer and Setup. He reportedly dated actress Amanda Seyfried for seven months before their split in June 2011. The gorgeous actor is frequently spotted with his kids Ava and Deacon, and celebrated the summer with the birth of his third child, daughter Kailani.

Ryan Reynolds

If there’s anyone who can give RyGos a run for his money in the ab department, that person is Ryan Reynolds. This sexy star had two big films this year — the superhero film Green Lantern and the comedy The Change-Up along Jason Bateman. The actor made headlines with his very public split from his wife of two years, actress Scarlett Johansson and was the subject of several relationship rumors with other actresses including Gossip Girl star Blake Lively. Reynolds was also named People’s Sexiest Man of the Year in late 2010 and held the title throughout 2011.
