A few years ago, celeb news show The Insider listed the top 10 bachelors in Hollywood.  This is how it went:

Owen Wilson

1. George Clooney
2. Leonardo DiCaprio
3. Matthew McConaughey
4. Ryan Seacrest
5. Vince Vaughn
6. Jamie Foxx
7. Owen Wilson
8. Orlando Bloom
9. Bruce Willis
10. John Mayer

Recently, I made a list of FAMOUS HISTORICAL BACHELORS, but steered away from living bachelors.  Listing well-known contemporary bachelors is an iffy thing because a) your famous bachelor dude might only be famous to a pile of rocks and b) as long as these guys live, the possibility exists that they’ll get sucked into the institution of marriage, thus nullifying certain bachelorhoods.  For instance, Vince Vaughn, who was listed in the above list, was married in January, so he no longer qualifies.  Of course, any list can be rewritten, modified and tossed.  Having said that, here is, after several minutes of carelessly intense online research, my list of famous contemporary bachelors (in no particular order).  As always, if you find some other good examples, let me know by leaving insane rambling comments & I’ll either edit them in or save them for another list.

  • Bill Maher (comedian/caustic)
  • Ed Koch (former mayor of NYC)
  • David Souter (former Supreme Court Justice)
  • Anthony Kiedis (singer for Red Hot Chili Peppers)
  • Anthony Michael Hall (actor)
  • Jeremy Piven (actor)
  • Karl Lagerfeld (fashion designer)
  • Lindsey Graham (US Senator from SC)

    Adam Clayton of U2

  • Matt Dillon (actor)
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman (actor)
  • Rick Rubin (music producer)
  • Ricky Gervais (actor/comedian)
  • Ralph Nader (politician)
  • Ron Jeremy (porn actor)
  • Tyler Perry (writer/director/actor)
  • Adam Clayton (bassist for U2)
  • Al Pacino (actor)
  • Billy Idol (rocker)
  • Carl Lewis (Olympian)
  • Kevin Spacey (actor)
  • Morrissey (singer-songwriter)
  • Quentin Tarentino (director/actor)
  • Vin Diesel (actor)
  • Drew Carey (actor/comedian)-engaged
  • Hugh Grant (actor)
  • Leonardo DiCaprio (actor)
  • Matthew McConaughey (actor-has 2 kids with his girlfriend)
  • Gene Simmons (lead singer of KISS has 2 kids with longtime partner & former Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed)
  • Ryan Seacrest (tv & radio host)
  • Jamie Foxx (actor/singer)
  • Owen Wilson (actor)
  • Orlando Bloom (actor)
  • John Mayer (singer-songwriter)
  • George Clooney (actor)

(These men are reportedly unmarried heterosexuals, though some may be in long term relationships and have children.  A few are believed to be homosexual, but have stayed mum on the issue.)
