Being straight and having a crush on someone of the same sex is perfectly normal — and no, that doesn’t mean you’re secretly gay or bisexual.

And recently I stumbled across an old viral Reddit thread that explored just that. Reddit user u/ILoveTallWomen asked the r/AskReddit community this question: “Reddit straight men, who do you think is handsome?”

Well, the straight guys came through with the answers and got very honest about the famous men they have crushes on. Here are some of the top rated and best comments:

1.

“Chris Evans is incredibly handsome – he just makes it so effortless that it makes me incredibly angry. I love the Marvel movies but the combo of him, Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Hemsworth makes me want to just give up and crawl down a hole.”

“Jason Momoa. I’m not saying I’m gay or anything, but if he asked me to, I would…and I would then rub it in the face of all my girlfriends who wanted to be with him.”

5.

“I’m obsessed with Ewan McGregor’s face. It’s like God invented the greatest smile known to man, walked away from it, and then POOF gave it eyes that undress you in the most disarming yet enjoyable way.”

“It took me far too long to find this proposal, it’s my first choice.

My fiancé still makes fun of me for refusing to watch this Justified DVDs we rented because they were in SD instead of HD; If I can’t make out the individual stubble of Olyphant’s gorgeous face, there’s no point in watching.
– TheBrownWelsh

“Um… my girl relentlessly scolds me because one day I happened to agree with her that he was ‘a handsome guy.’ It would be close between him and Jason Statham but I have to say Timothy Olyphant would be my crush.”
