1
Christian Bale

Take his dark film roles and combine it with his hot temper and you have one perfect example of a bad boy. But he'll always be Cowboy from 'Newsies' to us so we're convinced he has a heart of gold in there.

From teen heartthrob to rock band frontman, Leto looks like everything your mother warned you to stay away from. His worst offense lately is withholding which conditioner he uses.

Meyers is no stranger to controversy, making several trips to rehab as well as the slammer. He also tends to favor bad boy roles, like Henry VIII and Dracula.

Colin Farrell

The smoking, the drinking, the cursing... they all combine perfectly with his handsomely disheveled appearance. He swears he's trying to move on from his bad boy rep, but at least the Irish accent and 5 o'clock shadow will be left behind.

Jude Law

Law earned his bad boy stripes from being less than faithful to his long-time girlfriend, Sienna Miller. That should be a total red flag but seeing him cry in 'The Holiday' made us forget all about it.

Depp's younger years filled with partying and drug use made him one of Hollywood's most well known bad boys. He's since become a father and cleaned up his act, but there is still an anti-authority vibe about him (you know, with the ripped hats and all).

He may be easy on the eyes, but Big Sean has a reputation as a womanizer and player. These rumors only intensified after his breakup with former fiancé Naya Rivera.

His past legal troubles and drug use all seem to be behind him now and Downey's become the reformed bad boy we're all rooting for. Plus, his role as Tony Stark makes us totally weak in the knees.

LaBeouf's rap sheet includes walking away from projects, public outbursts and arrests -- several pretty recently. He's only gotten more bad (or crazy?) with age.

Mayer's favorite hobby seems to be breaking hearts of America's favorite ladies, leaving Taylor Swift and Katy Perry in his wake.

Sean Penn

Penn's short fuse only made the paps egg him on more back in the day. Today, he focuses his energy on more charitable pursuits. Swoon. The gracefully aging/reformed bad boy has to be one of our favorites.

Never one to hide the sordid details of his past drug use and sexual escapades, Brand's comedy and books are anything but PG.

Salling made a name for himself playing a punk rock slacker on TV, but was actually raised in a strict, Christian home. However, he was hit was some unsavory allegations of misconduct last year.
