In Defense Of Theo James' Hotness

Because the 'Insurgent' star is really hot and we need to talk about it.

It's a truth universally acknowledged that to be a YA heroine's love interest, you have to be insanely hot. And like Edward Cullen, Peeta Mellark and Augustus Waters before him, Tobias "Four" Eaton" is undoubtedly swoon-worthy. And we have Theo James -- and one freakin' brilliant casting director -- to thank for that.

As "Insurgent'"s lead dude, James is obviously easy on the eyes, and with an IRL name like Theodore Peter James Kinnaird Taptiklis, you know he has to be classy AF. Not only is the handsome Brit incapable of taking a bad photo with that cheeky smirk, but he's one of the few celebs we think can totally rock that weird beard trend that currently plaguing Hollywood.

However, some of my colleagues at MTV News (who will remain nameless for their own safety) don't agree with my assessment of James' hotness. In fact, they don't think he's very hot at all. Clearly, they're wrong, and these photos prove it:

  • Oh hey, Theo.
